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

Achoo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Announces Pre-Order...:

@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

Achoo commented on GAME Launches UK Pre-Orders for Splatoon amiib...:

@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 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...

Achoo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

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.

@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?

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

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 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.

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 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 Emblem
Boy and His Blob
Battalion Wars
Little Kings Story
Pikmin 1/2
Dead Space Extraction
Zack and Wiki
Project Zero 2
Other M
Last Story
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Fragile Dreams
Muramasa
and Maybe Anno and Ghostbusters game. Probably more I am forgetting.
Very happy about Sin and Punishment already having been announched

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.

Just like all the other auctions of this type, the buyer rarely pays, if ever. But that is not 'exciting' news so I guess doesn't get reported.
This kind of journalism really is scrapping the bottom of the barrel guys. Are you really that light on ideas?
