OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd July (Europe):

Can't believe they have gave us the PAL version again,well I can actually as its Nintendo but still.So that means us Europeans have never got to legally play the optimal version of this masterpiece?Think I will get Advance Wars 2,loved the first one.I want to give Fire Emblem a try,what's the best one I should start with?Preferably one with a tutorial as great as the original Advance Wars.



OorWullie commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Cuddles Up to Fourth Spot...:

Fantastic game,great to see it come in so high.I didn't expect that at all ,at least in the UK anyway.The soundtrack deserves as much praise as the graphics,just beautiful.If this game doesn't put a smile on your face then you should seek help.



OorWullie commented on Video: Spin a New Yarn with these Top Ten Ways...:

I bought the digital code from a German retailer so I'm eagerly waiting for it to hit midnight in central Europe.It will be 5 am for me here in Thailand so far from ideal but it's Yoshi in an HD world of wool so sleep will have to wait!



OorWullie commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

Great review Thomas,thoroughly enjoyed reading that.I had no doubts this was going to be a classic and this review confirms that.Soon as it's on the Eshop this beauty is mine.



OorWullie commented on Unreleased Splatoon Maps And Weapons Get Detai...:

All those weapon choices and I only ever use one,Aerospray RG.I should really get out my comfort zone with it and try changing how I play the game but everything else just seems inferior to that bad boy.I like to leave inkmines in narrow passageways and take great satisfaction tempting a foe to follow me round the corner only to step on my mine and you cant top unleashing an inkstrike near the enemy base and charging in John Rambo style and picking them off like flies with the trusty Aerospray RG.One time I managed to take all 4 opponents out myself within second with the inkstrike and charge method.I've been unsuccessfully trying to recreate that destructive move ever since.



OorWullie commented on French Retailers Are Cancelling Yoshi Woolly W...:

Maybe it was by an angry warehouse working Nintendo fan who already sick of hearing about the damn things was tipped over the edge into a full blown amiibo rage from that dreadful E3 performance?Skylanders amiibo may have been the tipping point!



OorWullie commented on Nintendo's E3 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Off ...:

Normally I would feel better the morning after the night before but not this time.It really was as bad as it seemed at the time.To be so hyped for the show and to come out of it with only Mario Tennis to add to the list of games I was already planning to buy is sad really.After the success of last years show and the positive marketing and good feeling around Splatoon I feel it was right to be anticipating a lot more from this show.They didn't even give us anything about the new rewards scheme or did they?Thing is,rewards for what?There is not exactly much coming to build up those points.



OorWullie commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

Any momentum the Wii U gained and positive vibes around Nintendo from the success of Splatoon has now gone out the window.As others have said,this can in no way be compared to a Direct,the audience for this is massive and other than the blindly devoted who defend anything and everything they do,this has caused nothing but bad feeling towards Nintendo and the word will spread.



OorWullie commented on Fresh European Trademark for Diddy Kong Cranks...:

Diddy Kong Racing is one the games I've longed for a comeback and when I found out about the cancelled Donkey Kong Racing for GC last year I was gutted.If I had the choice between DKR and Metroid from Retro,I'd pick DKR. Racing rhinos through HD jungles online sounds superb to me.



OorWullie commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

That is surprising.Hopefully not too long is spent showing it off in the Digital Event now that we know about it,a short trailer will do.I would put my money on it being New 3DS only though.



OorWullie commented on PlatinumGames to Unveil a New Title at E3:

Hopefully it's for Wii U and nothing to do with Starfox,that means we've got 2 games to look forward to then.Personally I'd love to see what they could do with Metroid with Retro giving us Donkey Kong Racing , Eternal Darkness 2 or Goldeneye 2,either one will do.



OorWullie commented on Latest Wii U System Update Removes TVii On Eur...:

The search function in the browser has got worse,I don't know why they needed to change that as it worked as it should before.Glad to see the TVii icon gone though,even if it did work I doubt I would ever make use of it.Got my fingers crossed for themes to be added in the next update.



OorWullie commented on Splatoon Holds Onto Top 5 Territory in the UK ...:

Great news,the game is sublime and needs to be played by anyone who has any interest in gaming.Hopefully the mates of Wii U owners who have played it will then tell their mates about it,who'll go and tell their mates and among all these newly curious mates word will spread around.Then by the time the big August update rolls out every gran and her dog will know about the magic of Splatoon.



OorWullie commented on Fan Site Randomly Generates a "Leaked" List of...:

Some of these are belters.

Nintendo Homeless Dancer Online
Metroid: Sick Party
Ethiopia Dietician (Working Title)
The Legend of Zelda: Pantyhose of Lead

and my personal favourite The Legend of Zelda :Fall off Mini Skirt



OorWullie commented on The Splatoon Inkbrush Weapon is Set to Arrive ...:

I can't get enough of the game as it is and it's great knowing it's only going to get bigger and better.I expect we'll receive a new map at the beginning of next week and hopefully we'll have all 4 of those shown by the time E3 comes round with another new mode unlocked after the show.Going to play some Turf Wars right now.



OorWullie commented on Weirdness: Man Gets Inked In Splatoon, Literally:

I'm not a fan of tattoos,at least on myself.I have a couple of indian ink ones I had done (butchered) in my youth that could really do with covering up but would rather just leave the hideous mess as is than get a proper one that I may regret even more.That said,my love for Splatoon is so inkredibly high at the moment I actually think this looks pretty cool.



OorWullie commented on Splatoon 1.2.0 Update Promises A More Pleasant...:

I really can't praise this game enough,my time playing it this morning and for a couple of hours this afternoon was absolutely superb.Just think by E3 we should have another mode,a few more maps,tournament mode for Smash and possibly Battle Mode for MK8.That's all you'll ever need right there! With Yoshi on the way in a few weeks,Xenoblade and Starfox round the corner,new account system and rewards,humble bundles and the surprises Nintendo have to show us in 2 weeks,it really is an exciting time to be a Wii U owner.Doom merchants can stick their gloom up their ....



OorWullie commented on Splatoon Ranked Battle Mode and First Free DLC...:

Cant wait,it will be 9am for me but I'll be there Splattershot and coffee at the ready.Hopefully they'll up the currently available maps to 3 too as 2 for 4 hours is a bit of a joke, they might be waiting till there are a few more maps available for that though.Hopefully we'll receive another 1 or 2 maps next week too.Exciting stuff.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 4th June (Europe):

I loved Big Brain Academy on the Wii,sunk many hours into it.I'm sure it was one of the first games I got for my Wii and not having a DS at that point,i'd never played a game like it.Whenever I was working the hated 2 pm start on backshift I used to fire it on for a few rounds before I left to get my brain working for the grueling day ahead,it never made my day any better but it definitely made me more alert haha.



OorWullie commented on Splatoon Producer Interview Sparks E3 Animal C...:

I can just imagine it now,1/4 of the Digital Event will be Shibata and the AC team talking AC Wii U,another 5 minutes of how it can link with Happy Home Designer and how the costume and wardrobe possibilities are endless,maybe a few more about how it will connect with a future mobile app.Then the big finale at the end,Tom Nook revealed as paid DLC for Smash and available in the Eshop "Now".

The most depressing thing about all that is,it could very well come true.



OorWullie commented on Splatoon Producer Interview Sparks E3 Animal C...:

If this is to be Nintendo's big E3 surprise I'll be disappointed to say the least.If it's one of 3 or 4 bigger surprises then OK but a trailer will do.Too much focus and we wont hear Reggie speak above the collective groaning.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (Europe):

I'll be travelling to Laos PDR tomorrow and wont be back till Friday evening but I've pre ordered a Splatoon download code so it will be there for me coming back.Got my digital code for £26,bargain!



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Renews Eternal Darkness Trademark as...:

One of the best games I've ever played and the first and possibly only game to genuinely scare me.Resident Evil made me jump,Eternal Darkness had me checking other rooms to make sure I was alone.If I could choose between Retro making a new Matroid or this ,ED would win every time.
