Torchwood commented on Video: A Punboxing of The Wind Waker HD Collec...:

GameStop sent me an email today saying they cancelled my order, I'm sort of pissed. I preordered on the day it was announced and they just never shipped it. Oh well, I'll use the money I'll save getting the normal version on Pokemon X/Y...

Torchwood commented on Nintendo Download: 15th August (North America):

I think I'll get Trine 2 and Runner, being a new Wii U owner and missing the previous sales for them. Both for less than the price of Trine 2 is a steal, and I have a five dollar credit from the Deluxe Promotion!

Torchwood commented on Pokémon Rumble U Figurines and Special Editio...:

Couldn't you just scan the figure while it's still in the package to see what it is and return it if you own it already? I know Skylanders were scannable from within the package, so unless the GamePad NFC reader is really weak or the packaging for the figures is thick, I'm pretty sure you'd be able to see what they are. Either way, I'm not buying this game, because I'm tired of the Rumble franchise, and the figures look cheap and polygonish.
Also, it should be noted that figures aren't REQUIRED to play, so people shouldn't be complaining in the same vein as the Disney Infinity power ups.

Torchwood commented on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Japanes...:

Usually in the US the Zelda box art is some simple artwork of Link superimposed against a solid color background, so I could see the same happening for this. Just compare the US and Japan box arts for OoT3D and SS!

Torchwood commented on Feature: A Brief History of Pikmin:

@Pikminsi Thanks. I found it for $12.99 at Best Buy used when you ship to a store, so I'll go for it! Used copies start at $40 on amazon and eBay and stuff. Yeesh! But I think for the price, you can't go wrong. Looking forward to it, and will hopefully buy Pikmin 3 once I finish 1 and 2!

Torchwood commented on Feature: A Brief History of Pikmin:

Nice feature! I've only played the Pikmin 2 rerelease for the Wii, and I'm trying to hunt down the New Play Control version of Pikmin 1 before I get to Pikmin 3. It's somewhat difficult to find now. :P Does anybody think I'd find Pikmin 1... limited having played it after Pikmin 2? From what I know, you don't find treasure, there's a time limit, and only three types of Pikmin. I like the exploration aspect of Pikmin 2, so would Pikmin 1 bother me?

Torchwood commented on Rumour: Nintendo Planning a Wind Waker HD Hard...:

I'd have to wait to see a price and the contents of the Wii U bundle before I'm disappointed with the ZombiU bundle I got last week. Even still, I can't complain seeing as that bundle was a good value and I wanted everything in it. I could see a similar bundle for Wind Waker being done, with a physical copy of WW, maybe a gold Pro Controller, Nintendo Land digital copy, and possibly a special design on the console.

Torchwood commented on Feature: Nintendo's Wii U Hype Machine:

@TysonQ7
Well, recently, yes. I've managed to be excited for the Wii and every handheld (even somewhat excited for the XL DS's), but not the Wii U. I mean, it's certainly really innovative, and I've demoed one at a Best Buy, but I'm just not excited...

Torchwood commented on Feature: Nintendo's Wii U Hype Machine:

It's not that I don't think the Wii U looks amazing, but Nintendo ultimately failed to entice me as a consumer. There's no killer app that could possibly justify my buying the Wii U on launch day. There are better games than the 3DS launch, but everything just seems kind of... lacklustre to me with the exception of ZombiU. Nintendo couldn't even get me excited with their own first party titles. That being said, I'm sure the Wii U will be great, but Nintendo's failure to get me to want to buy it as soon as possible has ensured it will be at least a year until I buy one. I wanted to be excited for this, but I'm not.

Torchwood commented on Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward Bug Infects ...:

I thankfully heard about this when I got stuck in the PEC room and looked up what to do online. All of the results were about this save bug, and they saved me from having my game corrupted. I think this is the one time where cheating and looking up what to do online would have paid off, as I would have probably saved in that room. :)

Torchwood commented on Grab a Gold Nunchuk from US Club Nintendo:

I scrapped up 900 coins for this and now I am fresh out! The lowered values on some of the games took a toll on the amount of coins I'd have otherwise. :P Here's to a bountiful harvest of more games soon and thus more coins!

Torchwood commented on Skylanders: Giants Introduces Swarm the Super-...:

I'm not buying Giants so I can avoid that hit to the wallet. Collecting every original Skylander was a fun experience, but it's a one time thing. It doesn't really look like there's really much different here from the original gameplay wise. I still might buy a few figures that look nice just to put on my shelf though.

I don't have any more room for posters... so the cards, I guess. But I'm disappointed, the past three rewards looked nice on display on my dresser... the posters look nice, but I already have all 4 of the other poster sets...

Torchwood commented on Nintendo Download: 28th June 2012 (North America):

It's nice to see they can put price drops on third party software. I bought VVVVVV the day it hit America, but hopefully more people will download it now and experience its greatness. For me, I'll get Bomb Monkey and possibly Marvel Pinball. A very good week, well done NoA.
