luke88 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

Does anyone know if the second circle pad is fully functional? I know in the article it said it would predominately be used for camera controls etc. - owing to it's small size. I'm left handed and haven't played Kid Icarus since I upgraded to the xl as I don't have a circle pad pro for it. Any idea if i could I use the second circle pad for games?



luke88 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@KJ85 I don't know; Mario golf on 3ds was £34.99 on the U.K eshop and $29.99 on the U.S eshop, if I'm not mistaken - I could be mistaken. Do you think that's fair?

edit: I should double check myself but I'm quite tired. I've just this minute got back from work; a fairly crappy job that doesn't pay very well, and i don't have money for food because I've given it all to the rascals at Nintendo that decide upon these exorbitant conversion rates; the swine.



luke88 commented on Keiji Inafune Juiced Up Azure Striker Gunvolt:

@S3OL I think the 3ds xl is the best handheld I've ever had. Personally, I'd recommend saving a bit more and getting that when you can - but I guess you should try and play all three iterations before you buy and make your own mind up.

Huzzah, so pleased to see this game getting coverage; I've been so excited about it for a long time now and am happy to see people in the comments here, that hadn't heard of it, getting excited. Looking forward to the upcoming first impressions piece.

@MadAdam81 I hear you! So, so much untapped potential. Was really hoping to see some RTS games on wii u.

There's endless cool ways the gamepad could be used. An L.A noir style game where the gamepad is your notebook could be cool.

I've got my eye on 'affordable space adventure' check it out if you're not already familiar. : )



luke88 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Great poll, twilight princess for me. I need glasses but never wear them. When I got that game for xmas I spent hours rummaging for a bent-up old pair to wear in order to appreciate it in all it's glory. Plus it has some of my favourite dungeons; particularly the Laputa-esque sky temple.



luke88 commented on First Impressions: Throwing Down in Shigeru Mi...:

@maceng I think there's loads of, currently undeveloped, potential for the gamepad in sports games, as well as a host of other genres. Imagine a cricket game, though perhaps you don't like cricket, with asynchronous multiplayer; the batting player would have literally no idea what kind of ball they're facing, the fielder could set up field placements on the gamepad etc. I would love that, done well. Or an American football game in which the plays are called on the gamepad - don't really know anything about American football but imagine loads could be done with the gamepad for that. Football, golf - as we've seen in Wii sports, baseball; all are perfect for the gamepad. Wonderful 101 demonstrated pretty clearly that action games can use the gamepad in wonderful ways.



luke88 commented on First Impressions: Throwing Down in Shigeru Mi...:

@zipmon great write-up! It's made me more excited for the game, whatever it turns into, than anything else I've seen or read of it.

All the customisation options make me feel like it could be great to play online, hope that gets implemented.



luke88 commented on E3 2014: Hands On With Nintendo's New Online S...:

Wonderfully written preview, incredibly excited for this game. I'm going to be greedy though and say I'd like to see more than 4 v 4, a battle with three teams, for example, would be great. I also want to see/hear [about] some voice chat and extremely robust online modes. I hope this is a full retail game with an abundance of content basically; everything I've seen so far suggests it deserves to be.



luke88 commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Life's E3 Reaction - Live!:

I really enjoyed it, interested in almost everything that was shown, Splatoon caught my eye. Little disappointed too though, If I'm honest: where's Metroid and do we just have smash and pokemon for 3ds this year? Smash is being developed by Sora/Bandai Namco and Pokemon by Gamefreak, what are Nintendo's internal studios up to with regards to the 3ds?
