Toaster05 commented on GAME Sends Out £10 Gift Cards and Apologises ...:

I got my gift card today also. The way I figure it I'll just use it towards an Amiibo at a GAME store. Granted they charge over the top for Amiibo (£15 I think) but it means an Amiibo at half the price.

Really I wasn't expecting any kind of compensation so I'll give them that much.



Toaster05 commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

I moaned at GAME on Twitter and they didn't reply. I emailed EG and let them know that I'd then been charged 7 times and low and behold GAME responded! They clearly have been watching the websites and can see the damage this has done to their rep.

As it stands I've still yet to have any form of dispatch note from them, this despite being told my order had been dispatched and therefore could not be cancelled. If it wasn't for the fact that the woman I spoke to at GAME was so nice I'd be foaming at the mouth right about now.



Toaster05 commented on Updated Club Nintendo Game Card Case Now Avail...:

Been waiting for these to get stocked. I have one already that I imported from Japan. They are hands down the best 3DS cart cases.

Was tempted to get two and eBay one but this way I'm left with a 5000ish points should something nice drop.



Toaster05 commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Flogs Rare amiibo i...:

It comes to something when I was able to order the boy and girl Inkling Amiibo from the USA for one and Australia for the other and get them both delivered for less than what Amazon wanted to charge me here in the UK.

I'm not even talking marketplace vendors, I mean Amazon UK. The other great irony is that I paid less than UK price and I live no more than 20mins away from a major Amazon distribution hub.



Toaster05 commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Call me old fashioned if you like but I find zero enjoyment in watching someone play a game on Youtube. Surely the fun actually comes from playing the games yourself?

That I find most of these Youtube "celeb's" to be self absorbed, over inflated egotistical types really doesn't help.



Toaster05 commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

Mine arrived today and I've just transfered all my data across. It's the first time I've ever had to migrate data on a Nintendo handheld and I can't say it's a pleasant or quick operation.

Nintendo really need to get with the program on that one.



Toaster05 commented on Reminder: Club Nintendo New 3DS Ambassador Pro...:

Not sure it is was coincidence or not but I took the advice of a GAF'r and emailed Nintendo directly. I was told I'd be added to the list and sure enough once I checked my account status I was able to add the N3DS to my cart.

Order is now processing.



Toaster05 commented on Mario Kart 8 Starting Grid T-Shirt Accelerates...:

Considering the pin badges are like 4000 points I was happy to throw 3700+ on this. It's not like they ever put anything super awesome on there and I'll miss out on it so what the heck, it's another t-shirt for the collection.



Toaster05 commented on Gallery: Check Out These Photo Highlights From...:

I saw some of the Nintendo Life staff milling around the show floor but I was way too bashful to go up and thank them for their efforts. Saw the Outside Xbox crew walking around too, same deal, didn't have it in me to go up and say hi.



Toaster05 commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

I don't agree with his conclusions at all. Even in my most hardcore days I doubt I'd have been so invested in Nintendo that I'd want multiple consoles to play different regions software.

Being honest if I were so inclined to play games that were unavailable to me I'd look into less salubrious methods before throwing down more cash on another console.



Toaster05 commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

Nintendo needs to embrace the whole DLC thing. I'm not a massive fan of DLC per se but done right (Mario Kart 8 for example) I don't mind throwing a few extra quid in their direction. When everyone else is doing the DLC thing Ninty only suffer for not doing the same.



Toaster05 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I'm quite envious of these offerings. As a UK resident it's great to have physical items available, however beyond soundtrack cd's (which most people seem to put on eBay and sell on to others) there is very little of interest and on the odd occasion that something decent does show up you have to have twitch like reactions to get hold of them as everyone and their brother is hoarding points anticipating.

So, being realistic the chances of me not owning a game on offer is better than wanting a Link notepad or a Yoshi binder.
