Achoo commented on Bowser Jr., Dr. Mario and Olimar amiibo Now Av...:
@Sakuraichu ah ok, I think I know where you are going with this...scalpers can not buy more than one?
Yeah I get that, but if one person buy's 20, or if 20 people buy 1, if they all have the intent to sell it makes no difference. Lots of people will just buy one of each to sell and still at least double their money
@Sakuraichu Yes I am aware of that, but not sure what it has to do with my comment?
They were posted on HUKD here http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nintendo-amiibo-olimar-dr-mario-bowser-jr-pre-order-10-99-from-nintendo-store-uk-2209918 , and you know that as soon as that happens they are going to go quick, it is scalper central.
How ironic that the poster actually posted it there with the sentence "Don't let the scalpers take them!"
Achoo commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:
@SirQuincealot I guess I'm just the type of guy who likes to eat their meat and veg separate! ha
@SirQuincealot I don't know, smash is about goofy characters for me, and Ryu just doesn't fit. I love playing Ryu in Street Fighter, one of my first picks, but not in smash. Likewise, I would not want Mario in Street Fighter.
@SirQuincealot Yeah I thought of that...probably the one exception due to the game having lots of blades in it anyway. Would Mario have fit in Soul Caliber though? I think not
Achoo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Announces Pre-Order...:
@Alundra-1998 Yeah I get your logic for someone who has not decided if they want them or not yet, but it just seemed to me Charlosa had already, and knew he/she would just be buying to sell...but whatever...buy to sell for all I care, as long as it is just one! I just don't like people who buy lots and lots and who are not actually interested in them apart from to make money. They suck
@Alundra-1998 Not really good advice for Charlosa though really is it, considering he/she said they would only be buying to sell?!
@couscorp Not necessarily. My guess is the seller just got someone they know to buy some to create the illusion of them selling fast. Why would someone pay £85 for one when they could buy them from game.co.uk for £15.99 still? Or even just another listing on ebay for £40? Still outrageous but cheaper than £85. I don't believe it.
Edit: It seems game have sold out, but there are still cheaper options available on ebay.
@Peach64 Yeah, in my view whoever runs the website needs to be fired. They will have cost Nintendo lots in PR alone, which will translate to money one way or another. We all know how Nintendo fans love to complain, and there is going to be a lot of disappointed fans after this.
@couscorp I don't know if it is even legal for them to cancel for ordering more than one if they do not specify this before-hand. I think it is just a blunder by whoever is listing them, they just forgot to put a 1 per customer limit on and now some greedy ass who probably owns a shop somewhere has bought up all the stock to sell in their store is my guess
And Greninja already gone? WTF? Who bought them all up? It is not even 3 yet! Someone has just gone and bought like a 1000 or something
And not limited to 1 per customer :S
No thanks. He is Street Fighter. It is like putting Mario or Link in the next Street Fighter. Some things just don't mix
Achoo commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:
More than anything, this will give kickstarter a bad name, and discourage people from supporting things in the future.
Achoo commented on GAME Launches UK Pre-Orders for Splatoon amiib...:
@Alundra-1998 lol, that's ok, but just this once!
3rd link down
@Jazzer94 Sadly the way the world works is that any item will be priced at what most people are willing to pay, and most are willing to meet Games price, so in a way, they would be stupid not to.However, they may be sacrificing loyalty and reputation for this, but lets be honest, they lost those long ago so they might as well just sell them for more.It's all about profits these days, no-care cares about the customers
Achoo commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:
GLaDOS from Portal anyone? Or is that pushing it?
Achoo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:
Funny how the votes show that most people were happy with it, but then reading this comment section I'd be lead to believe anything else.I guess as in most internet forums the people that are never quite satisfied come out to play, while the others read the first few comments then go off and do something else, speaking of which...
I think lots of people will be happy with the N64 games, something I am not bothered about personally, but at last I won't have to read them complaining about it anymore. Or will I? I guess that depends on what games they get.Personally, Fatal Frame and Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem were huge, non expected announcements for me, which more than made the direct the best one I've seen. Add to that that Mario Kart will now be actual fun (hopefully) and competitive and challenging, and Smash is getting patched and you got a winner.Both these games, along with Splatoon, gives me hope that the Wii U will now be considered a good platform for more hardcore skill based games, which contrary to what was said in the article, I think will sell more consoles. In fact my friend has already decided he is getting one as soon as he saw it.
Achoo commented on Super Mario 3D World and Kirby: Triple Deluxe ...:
@Sakura i guess we'll just have to agree to disagree then. You have a nice day
@Sakura You want to talk about profiteering, then realize there are far more evil profiteers in the world than a few small time scalpers who are probably broke anyway.Also, do you think I really care if some random on the internet believes me or not? Come on man, 'Yeah, sure you did.', what kind of comment is that? How old are you?
Achoo commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:
@ThomasBW84 Yeah, the 720p N64 thing was the giveaway for me also. No way will they be doing that
Sod the N64, been there, done that, just give me Fatal Frame 5!
@Dr_Corndog There is a valid reason, just research it, lots of people have wrote about it
Mario 3D World soundtrack is much better than the Mario Kart 8 soundtrack imo. Probably the best Nintendo soundtrack ever, although I really like the acoustic style of the Link Between Worlds soundtrack also
Achoo commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:
I find this actually refreshing in a world that would rather rush out under-cooked games.Happy to wait as long as they need to give me the best game they can create.It just goes to show that financial gain is not their priority, and I applaud Nintendo for given them the freedom for this. I have much higher hopes for this game now
Achoo commented on Remake Request: Super Metroid 3D on Nintendo 3DS:
I'm still hoping for a Pikmin game on the 3DS. How good would the bottom screen be for multitasking?
Achoo commented on Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Release Has Been ...:
@Nintendzoey I think you should just give up on Nintendo if that is how you feel, probably best for all involved ha. This was a gift after all, a freebie that was suppose to make people happy, not angry as it seems to have you
Achoo commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:
Just get Kirby Triple Deluxe instead of you got a 3DS and want a kirby game, it seems to be a better game
Achoo commented on Amazon UK Delays Some Shulk Pre-Orders to Late...:
@ToxieDogg Yeah I got those pre-ordered at Nintendo store also, but like I said not holding my breath on getting all of the further waves. I don't have the time to be paranoid about it and keep checking over and over, just gotta rely on being a bit lucky sadly.
@ToxieDogg Yeah, you and me both. Good luck getting your pre-order in for the next wave though, as I think more and more people are going to be thinking that way, and that 2 - 3 hour pre-order window will shrink down to a 30 minute window!
@MrGawain I am not sure you will get £8 credit then. I had 3 cancelled that were in the same order. I was sent 3 £2 codes for credit, but Amazon website would only let me enter one of them
@MrGawain Did you order them all as one order or separate?
Achoo commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:
I think the negatives outweigh the positives with regards to numbered scores.
Achoo commented on Devil's Third Director Tomonobu Itagaki Believ...:
This game looks fantastic to me. By far the most intriguing horror game I've seen gameplay for but never played
Achoo commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D UK Pre-O...:
huh, this is better than I thought. From what I gathered this was only applicable to people who purchased the Ambassador edition New 3DS, but looks like I misunderstood.
I hope you are correct and not me, as I don't like the idea of this website causing more distaste from fans towards Nintendo after getting disappointed. After all we seem to be a fickle bunch
Achoo commented on Tesco Direct Starts Flogging Wii U 8GB Systems...:
Would have bought a 2nd one at that price for the bedroom
Achoo commented on Masahiro Sakurai Once Again Highlights The Pos...:
All the criticism this guy gets, after delivering some of, if not the best fighting games available is unjustified. People complaining about him just sound like a bunch unrealistic, out of touch, spoiled brats. The guy has done a fantastic job and should be commended.
I feel like he needs a pat on the back, but instead gets a punch in the face daily
Achoo commented on Super Mario amiibo Series Can Now Be Preordere...:
I prefer the smash one's personally. Generally more dynamic poses and seem to have more attitude, which makes sense given the game they are based on. Just missing Little Mac still though, so very sad as I can't find him anywhere
Achoo commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:
@VanillaLake My guess is that N64 games just take a little more work to port to the gamepad than NES or SNES, and from what I read in the past, Nintendo decided those reasorces were better spent in other areas due to anyone wanting to play N64 games on the Wii U are not prohibited. What it seems people are asking for is not to be able to play N64 games on their Wii U, but to be able to play them on the gamepad, which is something that will cater only to a small crowd due to many people happy to just play them on the TV in Wii mode.I am not saying it is ideal, I am just stating the logic behind Nintendo's decision
@electrolite77 Yes so would I, and I have not bought any N64 games either as I will wait for Wii U VC releases. I am just stating why it is not a priority for Nintendo as I have read from them in the past, and to be frank, I see their point. If someone was just interested in playing the games they are available for them to do so
@RedYoshi999 They haven't bothered with N64 as you can still buy them through the Wii mode eshop. Only thing they would add by bringing them out on Wii U VC is gamepad support...Is this really what everyone is crying out for? Added gamepad support?
I know your going to say "HD graphics" but that ain't happening. When Nintendo does remakes, they do them properly, like WW HD or Majoras Mask. No upscales. It is not Nintendo's style.
I understand the outcry for GameCube but not N64
Top games for me would be:
Fire EmblemBoy and His BlobBattalion WarsLittle Kings StoryPikmin 1/2Dead Space ExtractionZack and WikiProject Zero 2Other MLast StorySilent Hill: Shattered MemoriesFragile DreamsMuramasaand Maybe Anno and Ghostbusters game. Probably more I am forgetting.Very happy about Sin and Punishment already having been announched
Achoo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Kicks Off amiibo Pr...:
Scalping is not as bad as some of you make out. I know it is frustrating to not get what you want, I still want Little Mac, but don't blame the players blame the game. It might mean the difference between some people getting a take out that night or eating beans on toast. They wouldn't do it if they were loaded you know, it would be too much hassle.
@Bushido_Fai No no, Nintendo have not confirmed that any have been discontinued...just retailers have. I suspect that they will be making more of Marth, infact wasn't he available again earlier today?They might make a separate set for the new games though is another possibility, rather than making more of the smash collection. It all depends on who is doing the manufactoring and if they still have the molds etc I think. Do they have the same materials in the production line? If it is a lot of work to start remaking them, i doubt they will, but if easy then sure. Can't really blame Nintendo for this. All signs were pointing to them not selling well like the Wii U. The last thing they wanted was lots of stock left over not being sold. They probably weren't prepared to take that risk. It would have taken some insite to see how popular they have become.
I think the fire emblem one's will be restocked as they have games coming out other than smash that will utilise them. However, those looking for Ness may be out of luck
