ThomasBW84 commented on Nintendo's UK Store Gives Free eShop Copy of A...:

@Stitches Yeah, I don't think free themes work with complimentary codes, as same happened with me. Never mind

RE those that haven't had the mail, check spam folders etc, I'd hope this was for everyone affected. Mine arrived at 7pm, so maybe they're working through it.



ThomasBW84 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015 - Q4 ...:

@rjejr Skylanders, Disney and LEGO Dimensions are all out already, so they're out. I think Xenoblade Chronicles X has to be included as it's not out anywhere in the West yet (and will obviously win the poll), but I know the Yoshi and Devil's Third calls can be argued either way



ThomasBW84 commented on Feature: Looking at the Building Blocks of LEG...:

Yeah, the pricing is clearly a big issue. It'll be interesting to see how the power of LEGO clashes with that price - which will win out?

In any case, it's really 'cool' and impressive once you unpack the thing but, yep, the prices are prohibitive (especially for the packs).



ThomasBW84 commented on Feature: Have You Played... ZombiU?:

@VanillaLake Yep, an oversight by me, though I do rate ZombiU obviously!

I'm not particularly experienced in the Fatal Frame series, so will definitely be trying the free opening levels (and suspect I'll end up buying the whole thing).



ThomasBW84 commented on Review: The Swindle (Wii U eShop):

@spizzamarozzi Depends how good you are, a run quite deep takes 2-3 hours, I'd say, but I was nowhere near to beating it in my first run. I think most should get a good 7-10 hours out of it, some longer if they're finding it difficult.



ThomasBW84 commented on GAME Apologises for Super Mario Maker Pre-Orde...:

@Mario_maniac There's only one right and wrong here, and having been one of those affected means I've been able to share information from that perspective; that's useful, I would think.

Passive aggressive? Hardly, just pointing out that GAME's been in the wrong, nothing passive about it.

This is hardly journalism focused on peace talks in the Middle East. Just about a company screwing up badly with consumers - I adjust tone and approach depending on the topic.



ThomasBW84 commented on GAME Promises Quick Refunds After Charging Cus...:

I got the full whack of five, so I'm not a happy bunny.

The thing is, I like supporting GAME as one of the last dedicated game retailers in the UK. It's the same reason I'll occasionally pay a few pounds more for a book at my local Waterstones store rather than buy from Amazon. I don't always take that route, but sometimes I opt to support businesses employing local people in shops etc.

They sure make it difficult to be loyal though, they've screwed up quite a few of my orders now.



ThomasBW84 commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

@erv On the PC server thing I doubt it, but I'll try and find out.

I'll be hopping onto the online (the server reset in my copy) now that it's switched to public servers, and I'll see how it holds up / how many players there are over the coming days.
