I love Nintendo, parkour and punk rock in no specific order. I only buy home console's not portables, just so I can still have a life.. My Nintendo ID is PUKE64.

Poor form Nintendo!! Whilst retailers have their share of responsibility, if stock is available they will quickly get more to fulfil pre orders and make more money. The only reason they wouldn't buy more is because the manufacturer is not delivering enough units!! Sloppy......



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo UK Store Offering Free Calendar With ...:

Well I love the persistent nature of their freebies lately. The Luigi hat, key rings and now this off the top of my head. I would rather have some kind of loyalty bonuses though as I never want anything when these deals are on but I WOULD order allot more from them if I knew I'd get something extra down the line. Since we already have club Nintendo, maybe the two could be linked in some way to encourage sign ups with physical sale rewards?!?

I voted mk8 for Wii u retail and overall, should really have given something to donkey Kong tropical freeze but it's the multiplayer options of Mario kart that wins it for me! E shop was a tough one as I've liked allot lately, steamworld dig was simply amazing, just a shame it was so short, still my favourite though ;)

@Grumblevolcano that super circuit pre 2015 release isn't gonna happen for us dude!! I need 75 more points for a code after picking up stealth Inc 2 and how to survive.......Think I'll get shovel knight and shelve My plans until the May mk8dlc gets me in the mood again?



ULTRA-64 commented on Sorry to Disappoint, But That 'New' GamePad Ma...:

Well I'm 100% certain that I'm not sure ;)
Think camera tricks/effects are to blame here as it would be stupid to have a new product in a mainstream advertising campaign that wasn't available never mind not even announced!! HOWEVER.....take the spread of this rumor as a clear sign of demand Nintendo!! The gamepad could do with an upgrade, I like the size and weight but that tacky screen should have modern touch tech and the design is dated now overall. Also, get on with 2 gamepad support already, Sooooo many possibilities with 2 separate screens and one shared!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Developer of Retro City Rampage Explains, Agai...:

His point is fair, hard to argue really! I'd love it on the e shop but if it dont make money then there's no point, business wise. I still haven't picked it up despite buying worse games since I wanted it because the Wii shop is such a ball ache and I've got 700 points and can't find the right points card without getting unwanted leftovers!



ULTRA-64 commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

@rjejr whilst your post makes perfect sense and I agree in principle with all of it. There is some argument to suggest that in the business world , cranking demand to a hype level beyond the rate of supply is positive for creating brand awareness , media coverage and industry focus. If you look at the Apple business model, this is a regular pattern of releases and nobody ever doubted their money making despite regularly releasing devises with short supply every year. Now a lost sale loses money I agree, but 10 kids talking about how desperate they are for a product raises it a relative 'value' to all 10 of them increasing the sales potential 10 fold. Of course we don't know Nintendo's plan here but they did pretty well out of the Wii hype when that was undersupplied so maybe this is what they actually wanted, time will tell how it all pans out. Personally I'm not enough of a collector to get them all, and they don't have enough uses in games yet to make me want more than a couple to try so I'm just fascinated to see how it goes without stress. It's hard on the fans who miss out when this happens but I'm pretty sure those same people would want a boost of interest in Nintendo consoles to generate more games options in the future given a choice?



ULTRA-64 commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

GAME are scumbags, they wil rip off the same customers they ridiculed for buying Nintendo off them in the first place. They have a big poster in the window of the Hull game store saying 50%off many top games on all platforms, followed by a pic of the new Lego batman game cover on all current coconsos except Wii u! I asked the guy (tbh a was being a bit petty as I knew the answer) if the offer applied to Wii u aswell.........He laughed in my face and told me 'we don't bother with stuff that isn't current and popular'!! a little blunt and harsh maybe , but especially hard to take when your stood next to a cleaned out amiibo stand with inflated price tags due to high sales!! I go to Grainger games for my stuff.



ULTRA-64 commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:

Since I'm on the fence about amiibo still......I'd better keep an eye out for some defects in stores to maybe keep me interested. Ill buy one or two maybe and might get some as gifts off people but I'd have them all if I coined over a grand in an eBay auction for a Fox wearing a Luigi hat or something!?!



ULTRA-64 commented on White Wii U 8GB System Trade Price Has Been Sl...:

@Blue-Thunder most of Japan would agree as they only sell the white there but I'm the opposite to you my friend and hate white electronics! Each to their own I guess!
I could be wrong here (people??) But I'm pretty sure you get a sensor bar with any Wii u !! It's an essential part of the boxed hardware, maybe you were unlucky man?



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (Europe):

@Grumblevolcano good call man, I forgot all about that! So long as it's out before the ddl promotion ends I'm happy as I plan a spree on the e shop to milk the last free codes I can get ;)
Also , like you, I'm all over that sonic demo as I was a little tempted before the reviews and I like to make my own mind up on how bad a game is. I did hate the lost world demo though =/



ULTRA-64 commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

No surprise Friday is a war of marketing and boom popularity sales.....Nintendo have failed hard in both of these catagories and did nothing to change it this weekend.....AGAIN!!! ah well, I'm happy ;)



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo eShop Maintenance Planned for 1st Dec...:

@PinkSpider for the most part your spot on but their entire system collapsed last Xmas you might remember and smash, a popular online game has just released so demand for servers will be at an all time high this festive period. I'm personally very happy with the service but more people means Nintendo act and they have been a bit slow on the uptake of new ideas lately!



ULTRA-64 commented on Hyrule Warriors Update and Twilight Princess D...:

@Laxeybobby @Danrenfroe2016 don't think I'll regret a thing content wise, loads to do and the dlc looks well priced, regular and unique so the season pass is a must! I need something I can plod through as I've been playing dk:tf and Mario 3d world to 100% and they are Soooooooo hard at the end. I love a challenge but both of these games are nearly no longer fun as I'm just replaying the same levels over and over to beat them!
Also, ditch ac3 as I found it bored me to tears but black flag was way more fun and involving from the off. You can always go back to it ;) .deus ex I found to be truly amazing, overall great game design and excellent gamepad usage paired with choice riddled story I was sad to see end. Highly recommend going back to that!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Hyrule Warriors Update and Twilight Princess D...:

Can't help but be interested in this, I was on the fence but after non stop dlc talk and more to come I'm finally sold. I'll pick this up after Xmas just in case the missus has plans other than bayonetta 2 for under the tree!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Discusses Production of the P...:

I'm planning a shopping spree to milk the dl reward scheme before it closes and am planning on buying this with a voucher code. Whilst I think they should be free if you've bought the game, I wouldn't mind paying 99p each day one.......otherwise free through a voucher will suit me fine!! ;)



ULTRA-64 commented on Child of Light's Creative Director Paints a Pi...:

Intresting stuff, I've still not picked this up but I've got plans to spend some money over x-mas to milk the last of the reward scheme so I'll get it then. It's probably the longest a Ubisoft game has gone without a discount!?!
Strange to think the director of farcry did this too, couldn't ask for a more different type of game! Just love that art style.



ULTRA-64 commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

@JaxonH I'm in your camp on the gamepad map, worked great in deus ex and made ac:bf much better when sailing around. It doesn't have to have a new gimmick to be well used in a game imo.
My issue with watch dogs is more the delays, price and lack of dlc(although they have weirdly released some now!!). That and having played it a wee bit on ps3 at friends it didn't impress enough to buy full whack. I will buy, but cheap and in about 6 games time as I'm not as fussed now and I'm gonna have another back log after xmas!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Evolved From a ...:

@aaronsullivan was just about to post the same, link can jump in most his games.....Just not at the push of a button.
I'll ask you as we're on the same page with this ;)
I always thought captain toad was a different character to toad completely. Not sure why I was so sure but maybe in the galaxy games they didn't define well /I didn't read well and that he does jump in 3d world ,just me thinking this?



ULTRA-64 commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

Pretty good list really, no complaints from me. I personally prefer my Mario in 3d but it's a classic that won. I definitely prefer the new 2d ones to the old, those early controls ;)
How I'd love to replay sunshine to see if it's nostalgia goggles or not, really enjoyed that one!
