bouncer0304 commented on Nintendo Maintains Its Vague Rhetoric on amiib...:

I'm now on the hunt for Donkey Kong, Kirby and Yoshi. Not too worried about Mario or Peach as they'll be around for a while especially since Yoshi and Kirby have games out next year plus all of those unlock MK8 costumes (my Samus looks like it's been drinking though as it's tilting to one side lol!). This is why i've decided to pre-order the rest of them so i can cancel if i decide i don't want any more (i just want to collect them). I want to avoid a repeat of this time especially with ones like Lucario, Roselina and Shulk which will be extremely popular and probably the first to go. I'll save a bit every week and it'll pay for them before i know it. Last time i checked Nintendo's online store still had Link, Pikachu, Marth, Wii Fit Trainer, Mario and Peach if you're after any of those. Ordered Link and Pikachu a few days ago as i wasn't prepared to miss out on those. Will i collect them all? Probably yes because who doesn't want nice looking toys which you can use and display 😁 I'm now lucky to be in a position to afford to get them all. Will i buy duplicates and sell on for a profit? No, unless it's a defective model of course 😉 At times like this i miss ONM as they would have run a comp to win them all sigh

These were the first three i pre-ordered. People laughed at me when i first said it but now i know i did the right thing. Chris Scullion was right on the money when he said those would be the first ones to sell out. Already ordered Captain Falcon as quite frankly i don't want to take a chance. I may even order little mac on top now as again i predict that those will be the next major shortages...

Gone so quick. To be honest, my local Argos had it for £4.99 a few weeks back. My sister and i only bought it for the keyboard but i've tried the game and it's not too bad. It works on my tab 3 and my sister's i pad so that's good.

So they're giving that Sonic theme for free too? Nice. Will download that. Watchdogs is having a laugh though- no doubt Ubisoft will say players haven't supported the system blah blah blah. I'll pick it up when it's going at about £10 which by the looks of it won't be long.

I think some will be disappointed that it's a US exclusive but to be honest, i watch Ashen's videos every month and for what you get most of the time it's far too expensive for what it is. You do get some cool stuff but quite a bit of it looks like junk. The price for the amiibo ones though is very high and no wonder it's limited quantities :O

Just updated now and it's still says ver. 2.0 and everything's still locked. Got the latest update for the Wii U so at a loss. In the UK so is it because i have to wait until 2PM?

EDIT: That's weird- turned the Wii U off and on again and it says preparing update. Hmm...

If that box set is more than £45 then they can forget it. I remember the last one Game did- awful, just stuffed into a box and many people complained about how over priced it was! The truth is that the game is £30, the pin badge probably £5, Poster again that big sell at about £5. It does not cost an extra £10 to produce a cardboard box and steelbook cover. Even at £45 it's still making a profit.
I'm super excited for this game but i may see what Nintendo store add on as well. I tell you now- not only will they do this but they'll add extras as well. They seem to have got their act together after the whole Mario Kart 8 farce going by peoples comments so i may wait and see.

Bayonetta first print and Disney Magical worlds retail for me. Maybe i'll get the Disney DLC too. Glad they've finally releasing it here as we've been waiting what seems like forever! Great thing is, unlike new leaf, despite being in real time, no one will move away or crops won't rot like the turnips do, so this'll be a much easier experience. I love New Leaf but loathe somethings, in particular, grass wearing. I wish they'd update it so you could stop it from disappearing. My neighbours, as much as i love them, rarely use the paths i set up so there's mud patches everywhere :-/

Gutted but finally glad they've admitted it. Good news is no one is losing a job. I've read Gamesmaster in the past and found the pages to be too cluttered and full of stuff i'm not interested with so i'll be cancelling. Best of luck to those who have been affected.

Some people may not like it but the Wii U IS classed as next gen. Ah stuff them- i'd rather have games like the wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2 and Mario Kart 8 anyway. Much more fun from what i've been reading with the last few games in this series anyway. As long as the Wii U keeps producing unique games then i'm happy. The Wii U caters to my taste and that's all that matters to me and i'm sure many others out there :-)

bouncer0304 commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

Excellent reply. It's not that Platinum have anything against other consoles either, it's just in this case, without Nintendo, Bayonetta 2 would not be here. End of. It's nice for once that we will get something others want and i've even pre-ordered the first print despite not playing it before as i've enjoyed what i've seen. For example, Capcom had a massive hit with Revelations on the 3ds and made a HD port as it did so well. The sequal? Nope, not on Nintendo and we get shafted. Hopefully this'll be a lesson for Sony, Microsoft and other and they won't forget how it feels in a hurry. I just hope the sales are good though as they deserve to be supported :-)

Nope. I must be pretty lucky with special Smash Bros demo- not once have i had hand cramp! I'm using an XL and my hands are okay. Nor have i wrecked my circle pad. All still working just fine :-D
Tell me something though- i found last night that i already have over 10200 gold saved on the demo (it's in the vault section under the Game and more option) so does that mean when the full game is played for the first time all the gold is added to it? Just curious about it as i don't really want to lose it all. It's taken so damn long to get it! Come on Friday please hurry up....

Hm a lot of work going on there. Could be to do with the themes, could be something bigger. I'm predicting a direct very soon as we haven't had one which wasn't focused on just one game for a long time. Again i would like one unified account but that never happens. The fact that both Wii eshop and dsi is involved i stands out. Why do i get the feeling that those will be closing shortly?

bouncer0304 commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

That must be the longest review they've ever done lol! Seriously though, wow! I thought the demo i had now was great, this makes me impatient for next Friday to come! I'm so happy that those saying it'll be the poor man's version have been put in their place by not just this review but pretty much every other review out there :-D For now the demo will have to tide me over- i just hope that Game will deliver it early. They've always been fairly good in the past. I guess that this demo, Theatrhythm and New leaf will have to keep me going for now.....

bouncer0304 commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

Managed to get the first print version before it sold out. Between this, Curtain call and Smash Bros 3ds plus a few other ongoing games, i'll be sorted until Christmas. Been saving and sacrificing like mad so this had better be worth the extra! I'm really enjoying the wonderful 101 so if Platinum can make it at least half as enjoyable as that, then i'm sorted ♡

Should this be launched in the UK, it'll more than likely only be in some English cities going by the last "UK" tour Nintendo did. Maybe they'll incorporate it into the Streetpass groups over here? There will be something, question is when.

Oooh Dual Destinies is £11.99? Gotta scrape the money for that at that price! Been waiting for a deal for a while so this'll be the final push for me :-) So okay i still need to play the other games but for that price i can keep it for later on. Landed!

Now THAT'S more like it! As i said before, no matter how hard i tried i struggle with the pro controller and Gamecube controller and the wii remote felt cramped to me, so this is perfect! I doubt many others will use it, but at least now when Smash is released on the Wii U i can finally join in multiplayer and not make too much of a fool of myself- hooray! I wonder how the Wii U gamepad will work- only time will tell. Before i wasn't too happy to get Smash on the Wii U just to get the cd, now though i'm very happy to take the plunge :-D

I was very lucky that someone in my streetpass group had the email and gave me a code. Never been too good with stuff like this so am grateful for them giving me a code. Should i get an email i will share a code or two on here as well as my streetpass group. Demo is fairly basic but it's giving me a proper chance to practice so i should be okay when it launches. Good fun though :-)

It may seem rubbish but there are those who have bought a Wii U for Just Dance so there will be an audience. Not for me personally but the Voice does have a good install base over here so there could be a chance that some will buy it for this and similar games.

bouncer0304 commented on UK And Australian Pricing For Nintendo's Amiib...:

£10.99 is pretty good compared to some of the Skylanders and Infinity figures but Nintendo need to stress what makes them different. Have a minute ad followed by some 30 second ads and keep them on a loop on as many channels as possible. Not that i've pre-ordered them all either....ahem. Well, at least that's some of my Christmas presents sorted so it should be cheaper for me!

bouncer0304 commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

Not a surprise really. What i'm more interested in is the PC back up feature. I really hope that this'll apply to original 3ds/xl owners as well. That is damaging sales as i've seen many times on forums people saying they won't buy until it's a unified system. And i don't blame them really! I also want a virtual console which spans both Wii U and 3ds in terms of games on offer. I bet you anything that GBA games will only be available for the new 3ds models. If they do that though, Nintendo had better prepare for the storm ahead. The current 3ds models can handle them fine (i've played them myself and they run well) so there's no excuse.
Pereonally i won't be upgrading. From what i've seen there's nothing really that wows me. Xenoblade, while amazing to have it on a handheld, doesn't look as good as the Wii version sorry. I still need to play that on my Wii U as well :-P

@Mega719 um, is this a good time to say my Mario Kart 8 footage was used to promote the game on E4 in May? Still have that special cup on my mantleshelf :-)

On topic, very nice. That new ad is great fun. I think the cat Mario show has been canned because so many people ridiculed Nintendo for doing a poor job of it. Plus Peach was downright creepy :O What they should do instead is just add subtitles and cut any bits not relevant to us. I do like that show but the British voices made it immature even for young kids. Smash though is sooo close. Eeeeee!

bouncer0304 commented on Feature: The Benefits of a Portable Super Smas...:

@SockoMario @TeeJay from reports i've read from previews, they've said that the 3ds version is better to grasp and more accessible due to having less buttons to worry about. Having played Brawl with the pro controller, there are quite a lot of combos and buttons (simple things like punch i get but i always mess up what each stick does) and truth be told, an interactive tutorial would have been welcome but making it skipable for the older fans and yes, many newcomers have said exactly the same acroos multiple forums i've been on (no a brisk 90 second video is not enough sorry). In fact, at my last streetpass meeting where we had massive Smash Bros event with Brawl and Melee on the go, even those who have played for years agreed with me on that point. Again playing with the wiimote was so uncomfortable, slow and awkward for me personally and just felt unnatural for a fighting game. As for the gamecube controller, same problem as the pro controller sadly.
I'm hoping the 3ds one will finally be the one since i'm comfortable with the 3ds and know the layout so well so no i won't just "forget it." There's no need to scoff at someone who finds the other versions tricky thank you. If you guys can pick it up easily then that's great (i love watching event videos and always get jealous at how they can do those combos so easily) but please don't put those of us down who have had trouble with past versions please. Even Sakurai himself stated he wanted the 3ds controls to be simple enough for new comers to understand and stand a chance at winning and wanted to go back to basics since this would be the first Smash Bros for many people, hence the simple layout for the 3ds version which i've seen in the treehouse videos at E3. I've wanted to join in for so long but no matter how i try i just can't get on with the console versions :-( The 3ds version is looking like the one that'll finally allow me to have a decent time in the very least. As long as i can have some fun and enjoy myself, that's all i want :-) Surely i'm not the only one?

Kinda reminds me of the the Callaway kits and clubs in Mario Golf world tour. Yes it's a sponsorship deal but it's free and can be ignored if need be. Don't forget you'll have to update it otherwise there'll be no more online play.

bouncer0304 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

Nintendo desperately needs to get the unified account system up and running. It's been promised for so long now it's not even funny. They also need to put every NES, SNES and GBA game on the 3ds VC as well and allow cross buy like Sony does. Finally, unlike the PS+, should Nintendo ever allow a pay monthly subscription, any games should be allowed to be kept. You've already paid for them and should be allowed to keep playing them even if you end it. I think another major system update is coming soon- maybe after the next direct?

Expect an update in the next week or so. While i don't mind homebrew i don't like it when there's piracy involved. While the person here has clearly stated that it won't run pirated games, somebody will exploit this code and add it in. I hate region locking too but i guarantee that if this is used when the next update is used, it won't work and could mess up your system. I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Damn that's catchy! Never say never though- remember chibi robot, Ezuma eleven and now Fantasy life and Yokai watch? They said those wouldn't be released but they are in the UK. I would like to see a release. It'll probably be on the eshop if it came over here but with the likes of Theatrhythm, i think it would do quite well!
