Definitely a Grammar Nazi

Male, 20, United Kingdom

I used to love Sega, then bought a PS1. I got a PS2 and thought "Hey this is quite fun". My brother wanted Smash Bros, only on Wii. We split the cost between us, it was fine by me. Now I love Nintendo, its DSes and Wii U. So here I am on Nintendo Life, to join other fans too.

RainbowGazelle commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

Correct. Last year's BAFTAs were for 2013, when Fire Emblem: Awakening, Luigi's Mansion 2, Pokemon X & Y, and Animal Crossing all launched on 3ds. But there were no 3ds games in the handheld category. That was the year I dismissed the BAFTAs entirely and stopped recognising them as any kind of legitimate award. This year's continued idiocy does not surprise me at all.



RainbowGazelle commented on New 3DS HOME Themes Confirmed for Majora's Mas...:

Cool themes, but I'm not paying overinflated prices on the eShop to get a 'free' theme.

Also, I'm sorry to be a Grammar Nazi, but it's been bugging me for ages. It's "those who" or "people who". Say "that" when referring to an object, e.g. "the TV that was on" or "the radiator that was warm". But for people it should be "those who do something" or "people who buy games".

I'm sorry to be so picky. The writing on the website is all-round fantastic, and I love your articles. Grammar is just a pet peeve of mine.



RainbowGazelle commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

I want this so much, because I've never played Majora's Mask, but it's full price for a remake. I would say that I'd wait until it's on sale, but Nintendo games don't go on sale, so I guess I'll never play this, unless I get it as a present.



RainbowGazelle commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

Didn't really enjoy the demo. The levels were boring, the characters were annoying, and I just kept getting the crap kicked out of me. I also dislike the setting and the OTT patriotic rubbish; "The Queen needs you!". I don't care, I'd rather she died. Basically, I won't be buying this game, even with the Fire Emblem Amiibo support.



RainbowGazelle commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

I've got the Hyrule Warriors season pass, and I'll get Gunman Clive 2 the second it's released. I bought the Metroid Prime Trilogy recently on disk for £30. XD The same thing happened when I bought Super Metroid on the Wii VC and it was 30p on the Wii U two weeks later.



RainbowGazelle commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

If Mario Kart really was the best game of the year, I would have traded my Wii U in. Luckily, there's Bayonetta, Smash Bros, and Hyrule Warriors. Shovel Knight is nowhere near as good as you say it is. Also, why no love for Layton vs Phoenix Wright? In short, I don't agree with any of these choices.



RainbowGazelle commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

So Bravely Default and Layton 6 came out only in America this year, so they're on the list. Rune Factory 4 came out in Europe this year, but it's nowhere to be seen. Same goes for SMT 4. I'm seeing some obvious bias towards America here (surprise, surprise).



RainbowGazelle commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle to Make an Impact in ...:

@Quorthon I know. It makes no sense. Here in the UK you still see Xbox One ads running all the time on TV and online. PS4 not so much, but they sponsor football on ITV. Every time there's an ad break, BAM: "Sponsored by PS4". They keep the PS4 and XBox One constantly in people's minds. Everyone is aware they exist. Nintendo just hasn't bothered to try and put the Wii U or 3DS on people's minds. We used to get 3ds ads, but they're pretty much gone now, too.

The perfect advertising opportunity for Wii U in October was Bayonetta 2. It got amazing reviews from all over. Nintendo should have been marketing the crap out of it. Was there any advertising on TV or instore? Not one bit. Nintendo sent it out to die, just like every other Wii U game pretty much. Even with Amiibo being super popular, many people don't know they exist. Go into ASDA and you'll see shelves packed with Disney Infinity and Skylanders. I asked a member of staff if they would be stocking the Amiibo.
"What's an amiibo?" was the response I got. Nintendo haven't bothered even telling retailers what the hell they are selling. I have to actively seek out Nintendo games and amiibo from specialist stores. However, the only specialist store that actually stocks amiibo stuff is GAME. And, being the rip-off scumbags that they are, GAME are charging £14.99 for each amiibo. They've also added £5 to the price of every Nintendo game this week, just in time for Christmas!

Bottom line is, Nintendo STILL need to make people aware of the Wii U (and new 3ds games), and keep it in peoples' thoughts, but they never will. It's their own fault that stuff isn't selling in the UK.
