luke88 commented on GAME Selling Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Conso...:

@Alex_Olney Hi Alex, having read this, I just popped down to GAME on my lunch break. I can confirm that, at least according to the guy in my local GAME store, this deal is not and never has been available 'in store.' Was pretty disappointing. Where did you hear this deal was offered in stores?



luke88 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Like many here it seems, judging from the negative comments/poll contradiction, I don't think its a particularly great idea but I'd certainly buy one; because I love NIntendo.

I don't think it's a good idea though.



luke88 commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

@FritzFrapp very interesting point that, I hadn't really considered it in that way. Guess it was always going to be hard to judge demand.

A lot of the 'sold out' press being garnered is also probably quite beneficial; can't remember hearing anything like it with anything wii u related before.



luke88 commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

@RainbowGazelle As I said above, I'd sooner just have another fire emblem game myself. That doesn't mean I don't empathise with the developers or the people who were looking forward to this game. I can see how the tone of bizcuthammer's post led you to think he/she was indifferent to their situation but he/she didn't actually say that.



luke88 commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Storm Jap...:

I think Nintendo need to do a little better, in terms of games, with the 3ds next year. It wasn't exactly a bad year but I don't think it was anywhere near as good as 2013. I'd like a sequel to Chinatown wars, that would surely help rekindle the buzz around the 3ds.



luke88 commented on Video: Nintendo Releases 60 FPS Trailers for S...:

I absolutely love the trailer for splatoon's campaign. It might be the first time in ages I even touch the campaign element of a 'multiplayer shooter.' It looks to be shaping up to be loads of fun. I hope it has co-op - perhaps I'm being greedy?



luke88 commented on Review: The Swapper (Wii U eShop):

This is such a wonderful game. One of my favourite things about it is the extent to which the developers just let you play, so little hand-holding, as mentioned in the review.



luke88 commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

That's disappointing, I remember Iwata outlining Nintendo's plans to work closely with Japanese third parties to bring more of their games to the west. Did I imagine that? I haven't noticed much of a difference



luke88 commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

@ThomasBW84 Sorry Tom, just to clarify, is it the cost of both Bayo1+2 in North America equivalent to one 'standard AAA' release there? But more than one in Europe? Have you guys listed the prices for both regions anywhere? Apologies if so, must've missed it.



luke88 commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

@mid_55 Hi, sorry for late response. No problem man, I thought it was pretty interesting and deserved reposting. Yeah I definitely think it's worth the money but I'd hate for you to spend more on it based on my advice when you could of got it for less elsewhere, then regret spending so much on it. It's a beautiful game though.

Ha! That's funny, I emailed Nintendo too and got, I imagine, the exact same generic response. I still haven't bought that game; it will be one of the only first party titles I pick up second hand for as little as possible. So no, I don't think you're sad, well actually, maybe we're both sad. But I think there's a difference between a multinational like Nintendo charging us more in the UK and an independent dev doing the same.
