luke88 commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival (Wii U):
What a turd
luke88 commented on Feature: Assessing Affordable Space Adventures...:
I'm very glad it's been a success - so well deserved.
luke88 commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:
Have always found the reviews here to be very informative and readable, myself.
P.s I thought Jurassic world was awful, so cliche, and every single character arc was tedious and predictable. But myriad opinions makes life far more interesting.
luke88 commented on Feature: Our Top Wii U Games - Third Anniversa...:
Affordable space adventures deserves more love
luke88 commented on RCMADIAX Announces Skeasy, Expected to Release...:
I played a game called 'right click to necromance' recently. It's only in beta, I think, and I believe it was made in just 48 hours for a competition. It is still better than anything RCMADIAX has put out thus far. I don't want to be mean, but it's hard not to be cynical about RCMADIAX.
luke88 commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U eShop Games - Third ...:
Affordable space adventures!
luke88 commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:
'No immediate rematch option,' honestly, can anyone think of a reason for this? Even Street fighter IV, a 3ds launch title, had that option for heaven's sake. I was hoping Nintendo had included a full compliment of online options. That doesn't seem to be the case, from the sound of things this game does not deserve to sell well.
luke88 commented on Feature: Reflecting On Three Years With The Wi...:
I absolutely love the gamepad myself. I think it has been desperately under-utilised by Nintendo and the majority of third parties, for different reasons. In terms of Wii u highlights, I would have to choose affordable space adventures. It is an utterly brilliant game.
luke88 commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:
Where's the steam world heist option??
luke88 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:
Did anyone else think that Nntendo (NOE at least, I haven't seen the NA direct) itself seems aware that amiibo festival and Mario tennis are both a bit lame? That segment of the direct was so understated.
luke88 commented on Interview: Image & Form Discusses SteamWorld H...:
December release window for this was probably my personal highlight from the direct. Been hyped for this for a long time.
luke88 commented on Review: Stella Glow (3DS):
March seems a long way off 😞
luke88 commented on Minecraft Wii U Edition Has Been Rated By PEGI:
Well, this is awkward...
@ToniK I certainly wouldn't of. I'd actually like to suggest your idea to the @NintendoLife team. Maybe we could have a header that says 'potential direct spoiler' for articles like this? That way those of us that want to could avoid such news. It certainly wouldn't hurt anyone.
Edit: the subheading could have even been, 'this is big...' That would have been fun.
@Peach64 surprises like this are so much fun though! I'm also a bit disappointed to have had the surprise ruined, if this turns out to be true. Not that I blame NLife of course - it's their job to report Nintendo news, this is most certainly that.
luke88 commented on Splatoon's Content Update is a Little Early Th...:
I'd love to see a sizeable update sometime before Christmas - maybe a few new maps and another game mode, and I think it's pretty crazy that the rotation has not already been increased to 3 maps per game mode. I'm pretty sick of playing the same map 4, 5 or more times in a row. Still an utterly brilliant game though, am still playing almost everyday.
luke88 commented on Free Origin Story and 'Remaster' Update Coming...:
@ejamer hey there! I'm not trying to get in to a fight with you here - you're entitled to your opinion on this, obviously - but this is genuinely one of the best games I've ever played, seriously. It is just impeccably designed. I think you should make an exception to your rule for this one.
Ps. I'm not being paid by nifflas or Knapnok or anything, honest. 😊
luke88 commented on Video: Learn All About Skells in This Xenoblad...:
Just can't watch any more videos of this game. I'm looking forward to playing it though.
luke88 commented on Super Smash Bros. Fan Provides a Suprisingly D...:
@Itglows I agree completely - there should be far more customisation of online options
luke88 commented on Video: See Splatoon's New Heavy Splatling Deco...:
@Jazzer94 I dunno, I don't use the kraken that often but find the best defence against it is just to stay totally still and hide, the point sensor could make that tactic impossible if used just before activating the kraken. It seems a good fit, to me. Guess that's one of the reasons splatoon is so good - there are so many different ways to play. 😊
luke88 commented on Target Reservation Cards Re-Affirm Fire Emblem...:
@IceAnt573 sorry, the above was in reply to you.
Yeah for sure. Personally, I'll certainly get all the content whatever happens, as I think it'll be worth it. However, I can totally understand people feeling a bit miffed paying more for the same amount of content For reasons that are never properly communicated to us.
@JaxonH unfortunately we don't all think as you do on this. I would literally bet may life on fans complaining, even threatening to boycott the game entirely, if there's a significant pricing discrepancy between the US and Europe. No matter which side gets the better deal, the other side will complain. I posted on here a couple times whinging about the Mario golf price difference. 😄
luke88 commented on Video: The New Animal Crossing: amiibo Festiva...:
@Xenocity ah, I'll check that out later, thanks!
@Xenocity really? I wasn't aware of all that content. I'm looking forward to reading a few and finding out exactly how it's all unlocked, and if any of it is any good. 😉
I can't even make it to the end of the trailer, this game looks awful as far as I'm concerned. I'm sure some people will disagree with my appraisal and maybe I'm wrong entirely - will have to wait for reviews. However, I think the vast majority would agree that the first real 'vehicle for amiibo,' by which I mean game that requires amiibo in order to play it, could've been something really special. This does not appear to be very special at all. I'm glad Nintendo created splatoon, were it not for that I can imagine myself feeling a tad disillusioned with Nintendo in 2015.
luke88 commented on Stella Glow Now Has a Confirmed Release Date f...:
Yes! Very pleased to hear this, little disappointed to have to wait a fair while longer for this and yokai watch but never mind.
luke88 commented on Feature: Finding Top Speed in FAST Racing NEO:
Day one, no doubt. I hope the servers are busy, and that they stay busy for a long while.
luke88 commented on RCMADIAX Is Bringing Its Entire eShop Back Cat...:
RCMADIAX is a bit like that aunt that doesn't really know you and always gives you gifts for Christmas that you really don't want
luke88 commented on Preview: Hitting the Courts in Mario Tennis: U...:
And I thought open was desperately short on content...
I'd really like to know as much as possible about the online component. Particularly, whether it's possible to enter customised matches with strangers online. I'll certainly need to wait for a review, but this seems as lacklustre as I feared it might be.
luke88 commented on Nintendo Shares Suffer Major Drop as Investors...:
@gcunit I agree. It's surely just a matter of time before Mario et al. do come to smartphones. When that happens the 💩 will probably hit the fan. By which I mean Nintendo's share price will increase.
I was surprised by miitomo myself but I don't think that one, relatively minor, announcement ought to depreciate the value of the entire company, the stock market is so weird and fickle.
luke88 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:
@toadma are you in Europe?
luke88 commented on XSEED VP Talks About the Future of the Rune Fa...:
I could never go back to playing Harvest Moon.
Rune Factory 4 is such a good game, so charming. I'd love to see a fifth instalment come to Europe.
luke88 commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:
I think this sentence is the real problem -
"I knew that the game would need more than $60,000 to be made. However, like many others, I didn't think for one second we could reach a goal higher than $60,000..."
Did this guy claim that the game could be made for $60,000 in the initial pitch? Does anyone know?
Just read through some of the update comments - the Internet is an unforgiving place and I do pity the developers, reading through some of that. I'm not really familiar with this project, this is the first I've seen of it, and I've never read through kickstarter's own rules so it's probably best I refrain from judging anyone. I think that part of the problem here is that most of us have an idea of what Kickstarter is that is probably contrary to the reality. Anyone actually know if any of Kickstarter's rules have been broken here?
luke88 commented on SEGA and M2 Reflect on 3D Classics Series and ...:
I'd love to see Landstalker and General Chaos.
luke88 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015 - Q4 ...:
@Miiamoto thanks! Ha, yeah I know but I'm not sure I can afford it this month. It does say one per customer, hopefully their stock will last a while.
luke88 commented on The Pokémon Company Sues Fan for Copyright In...:
Seems incredibly harsh
@kingofthesofa oh great, thank you! ☺️
I can't find project zero on the Nintendo uk store, the only physical version I can find is on Amazon and it's listed for £130. Does anyone know what the situation is with the physical version? I thought it was being sold through Nintendo uk, they can't have sold out already?
Oh, @DoctorOverbuild perhaps you can help me, did you order that from Nintendo UK? Any idea if they all sold out? Sorry, info was probably here on at some point but I must have missed it.
luke88 commented on Yo-kai Watch Release Date Moves Up to 5th Dece...:
Oh man, would absolutely love to hear similar news for Europe but I certainly can't begrudge Aus/NZ this; from what I can tell they're often left waiting. Though If Australia beat England in the rugby tomorrow - thereby knocking us out of the World Cup that we're hosting - I'm sure my goodwill will evaporate.
luke88 commented on Nintendo Attempts to Show the Fun Side of Anim...:
@TheAceofMystery in fairness, this does legitamately look like an awful game.
luke88 commented on Excellent Shovel Knight Sales Prove That Indie...:
@boatie Affordable Space Adventures is easily one of the wii u' best games
luke88 commented on Random: Conduct Interviews in Retro Style With...:
That's awesome. I want one, though I'd have no occasion to use it.
luke88 commented on Nintendo Hammers Out A New Update For Super Ma...:
@dizzy_boy haha, yes that was my plan 👍🏻☺️. I'll play some this afternoon.
@dizzy_boy am off work today, will try out some of your levels and throw a few stars your way.
Edit: I'm having trouble finding your courses on the NLife page you linked, is there an easy way? Perhaps if you put one code here I can use that to 'follow' you in-game?
luke88 commented on Video: Ocarina of Time's Kakariko Village Gets...:
@yannah21 I'd go with splatoon now, mario maker later. They're both great though, you can't lose.

@Lord blimey, how on earth are you so well informed?
