@Darknyht Hi, sorry I honestly don't mean to be antagonistic here! But I think
"A good guide to pricing is $1.50 per hour for average completion rounded to the closest multiple of 5" is one of the strangest sentences I've ever read. Have you ever been deeply affected by a game? Or do you own games with which you'd say you have a kind of emotional attachment? I'd say it's hard to apply any kind of monetary value to those kinds of experiences, what do you think?

@rjejr ha, yes, I think I agree with your thoughts on the world unfortunately. I'm not sure what I think about your point but the title is a reflection of a recurring them throughout the game. This has been, and was, (I think?) stated by both knapnok and nifflas. if they've explained the reasoning behind naming the game as they did, and we believe them, then your scenario is just a hypothetical?

@rjejr I'm sorry, I often agree with your posts on here, but, in my opinion, anyone who thought the title 'affordable space adventures' was some indicator of price and subsequently became angry/indignant upon hearing about the premium price is an absolute idiot - a complete moron, utterly beyond help.

Excellent article @ThomasBW84 It's disappointing that so many of your points even need to be made, particularly on a website supposedly frequented by some of the very people you would expect to cherish games, and their creators, the most dearly.

C'mon people: I may go to a pub on Friday, have two or three drinks then have something to eat after. I arrive home having spent more than I spent on affordable space adventures - one of the most exquisitely designed games I've ever played and an experience I don't think I'll ever forget. I'm sure the vast majority of you could say something similar regarding your spending habits. We all need to fix up.

luke88 commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

Sorry, just to clarify, is infinite weapon use included in every mode/difficulty setting? I always thought item management was an enjoyable and well conceived part of every fire emblem I've played. (Three, so far)

The more I hear about FE:If, the less excited I am for it. None of the 'new features' revealed so far appeal to me at all. I just wanted something similar to awakening, maybe a bit more difficult on the classic difficulty setting, with all of the ideas from that iteration expanded upon. Buying two games, one of which will most likely be extremely easy, limited turns on the other, infinite items - all sounds horrible to me. Having said all that, I'd be very surprised if intelligent systems is able to ruin the game to the extent that I won't buy it. Though, now, I will certainly be reading reviews before buying.

@ShanaUnite yes, actually, I do agree with you about that new feature.

@ezer there was a rumour on Nintendo Enthusiaist, that I read a couple days ago, saying that a new paper mario for wifi u was in development. I think they said intelligent systems was working on it. Have your salt close to hand though.

@AshFoxX there's a variety of control options, I didn't enjoy the gyro controls myself either, I used both analogue sticks. There's also a single player campaign, it's hard to say how 'slim' it, and the rest of the single player content, will be until we've played it, or seen reviews. As for 'elitists and griefers,' I honestly think this is one shooter that won't be ruined by anything like that. It is just pure fun. I hope you get an opportunity to try it out.

My sense of disappointment is rekindled every time I read the words 'splatoon' and 'no voice chat,' in the same sentence. It's a crying shame but never mind eh? I'm certain this game is going to be immense.

luke88 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Paid-DLC Details Emerge...:

@Tazcat2011 It could well be my GOTY, indie or not. Will have to wait and play xenoblade and splatoon but it will be hard to beat, in my eyes.

@BrizzoUK Oh no not at all, no apology necessary! Ha! Yeah I can imagine, I've only played it solo but it was stressful at times, in a very positive and satisfying way though I thought. I imagine another player could make things even more stressful. Wish my girlfriend would play games with me, she hates them. 😄

@Quorthon Speaking of succinct, and I know you were also looking forward to it from previous posts of yours, did you get a chance to finish Affordable Space Adnventures yet? Sorry, I know it's an off topic question, but I simply must discuss my love for that game at any opportunity.

Did anyone here, or does anyone know of anyone, that "requested Lucas' " inclusion? As Iwata claimed many fans had. I follow several Nintendo sites and forums and never once saw such a request. Perhaps it came from lots of Japanese players.

Have played for a couple hours now and it is really living up to the immensely high expectations that I had for it. It's a really special game, in my opinion, and I urge everyone on the fence to get it if they can possibly afford to.

Been turning on the e shop every 15 minutes from 10 this morning. When will the game be available?

Been waiting for this game the best part of 18 months, suppose a little longer shan't be too much of a problem.
