Samurairu commented on December's Club Nintendo Rewards Aim to Bring ...:

@darklinkinfinite I think you're right, but hope we're both wrong!

I never got that nice statue and have been hoping for something like that for years. As far as normal rewards, I'm fine with cute little bags for grocery shopping even, but posters and cards do nothing for me.

It's sad. I don't get why they can't streamline the rewards in all zones. Some of the physical swag in Japan and the EU are pretty nice. We never get those stuffed toys. Those are fun things I'd never buy, but would like as a free loyalty reward.

I have given up though, that's why I bought a Yoshi amiibo. =(



Samurairu commented on Weirdness: Factory Error Results in Dual-Wield...:

This is a fake. In todays mass produced factories, there are no one of mistakes anymore, like in the days when labour was cheap enough to have people putting things like this together by hand made enough profit for the greedies to not mind paying humans.



Samurairu commented on Review: Pier Solar and the Great Architects (W...:

This review is horrible. Do not let is disuade you from enjoying a great game. Of course it isn't as polished as AAA games, but it's the first eshop title in a while that has been worth every penny, imo.

I'm nearly 20 hours in and the only complaints I have are minor, while the battle system, dialogue etc are not negatives. I agree with some of the others on this board that the reviewer should not have reviewed or didn't actually review this game.

I'm all for varying opinions, but selling yours as right and not a preference is what makes this review complete garbage imo.



Samurairu commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

Why do they even bother? Just let it die and focus on the new games if this is the best they intend to do. At least then the little effort they are putting towards the VC and rewards could be put to something useful. Ridiculous.



Samurairu commented on Best Buy Gearing Up For Enticing Buy One Get O...:

@Joalro Tell me about it. I would have been buying eshop cards out the whazoo if we were getting the promo's like in the US and not to mention how we are getting gouged on the eshop price wise now with pricing 10+% higher than the US for no explicable reason as the dollar has not been that far below for years and is currently around 6%. It's the beauty of living in a country 10x's smaller than the US which no one cares about.



Samurairu commented on Wii U Version Of Project CARS Drops To The Bac...:

Say goodbye to mine and many other day one purchases. The Wii U could use a driving sim and I was excited about this game, but being treated like second class means I will only get this game if it even gets enough distribution to make it to the bargain bin like all the other 5-10$ 3rd party games.



Samurairu commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (North America):

Thought I was going to get Guacamelee, but yet another title raised in price in Canada which means I don't have enough money to buy it in my account. Sure I could add more money, but I won't buy on principle.



Samurairu commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

To me this entire story is fluff. I care about the game and if anything, having real stores in the background adds to the realism. In today's monopolistic capitalism, there are only a handful of companies that make everything anyways, so why should Nintendo not make more money to support their future by allowing the charade of competition to enter their games?



Samurairu commented on Two Separate Bayonetta 2 Retail Releases Confi...:

I am able to afford games by pre-ordering to get discounts. I pre-ordered this game in NA, because of the buy 1 get both scenario. If it turns out I only get a discount on the original, I will cancel that order and then since the order I made only gave me the discount for preordering 3 games, I will cancel the 2 more games. It may not be legitimate and I won't over react, but with the e3 video showing getting both games clearly on the box, I will feel like sloppiness has resulted in the customers like myself feeling the rules have changed.



Samurairu commented on Armillo Release Date and Launch Discount Detai...:

@DarkCoolEdge This is something that plays a major factor on whether I buy games. When games start getting north of $5 and have 2 or 3 hours of play time, that's not enough time for me to even get good at the game and usually I find little replay value in the non Nintendo titles. I was definitely going to buy Tengami for example, until I saw it's a 2.5 hour game.



Samurairu commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (North America):

For what it's worth, the prices are US only and not North America as for the past couple months, some publishers, like Nintendo, are taking advantage of the fluctuating Canadian dollar to charge random and of course exorbitant amounts more. Part of the pleasure of living in an insignificant market.



Samurairu commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

If you're looking to upgrade, the only option is a PC. If you're looking to play awesome, unique, endlessly replayable exclusive Nintendo titles..... you again have one choice. This article is tripe and I fell for it.



Samurairu commented on Bayonetta:

This is awesome, free game, 60 FPS, additional content, optimized controls AND JAPANESE AUDIO TRACK!!! YES!!!



Samurairu commented on Project CARS:

Are they ever going to show Wii U footage? All they talk about is the PS4, they're making a mistake and ignoring the many Wii U owners who are interested. With the lack of love directed toward the Wii U I'm already changing my focus to other games which are sure things like Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1&2 and of course SSB.



Samurairu commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

It must be an unintended side effect. I cannot see Nintendo wanting people hopping around in a racing game as it looks stupid and does not correlate with Nintendo's statements of trying make mk8 the best driving game with more balance. I personally will not use it and will make it my goal to target anyone using this cheat until it is patched.



Samurairu commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

While the gamepad isn't necessary imo, neither is having a game system and I really like the gamepad so..... =). It's simply conveniences gives the games a better feel. I hope they continue to develop for it until it grows on people more.



Samurairu commented on Monster Hunter Team Discusses Continuing Evolu...:

I guess I'm in the minority, but if it's not on the Wii U I won't be playing it, if it's on the Wii U I will buy day 1. Too bad they screwed up the potential of MH3U game on the Wii U with a brutal demo which deterred a lot of day 1 buyers, myself included. I know people who cancelled pre-orders after playing the demo! I got it later and which I had bought it months prior.



Samurairu commented on The Wonderful 101 Saving Wallets on Wii U eShop:

Was going to get this, but put off by being charged 17%. Total BS. I paid 12% to exchange some Canadian to US, if this is start of something, Nintendo can say goodbye to my e-dollars as I was buying eshop to support them, I can get cheaper at brick and mortar.



Samurairu commented on Nintendo Download: 27th February (Europe):

Nice to see Just Dance coming down to the price you could get it retail since July around here. If they would match the prices of physical copies, I would consider buying them digitally. Like with MH3U



Samurairu commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@Zach777 I know you're not joking and fail to understand why people don't realize these under handed tactics are occurring. Kudo's to you for posting this and putting up with people who disbelieve. Nintendo does not play the game the way the gluttonous industry does and that's hurting them, but I won't own anything other than a Wii U and I may get few games, but at least the games I get are all quality titles with great replay value. I am disappointed with what is happening to the Wii U, but not so naive to not realize Nintendo's failures have amplified the negative press proliferated by it's competitor's. Nintendo needs to figure out how to become less Japanese in it's PR, but maintain this part of their culture which enables them to make amazing games!
