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.

@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.

@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?

@elstif That's so frustrating. I've had quite a few problems but nothing like what you've described. I must say my wiiu struggles to connect way, way, more than any of the other consoles/devices I've got next to it. Do you have problems with Netflix etc. etc? Either way, I hope the situation improves for you.

Remember reading an interview with the dev, she (i think it was a she) came across pretty well and seemed nice. Might get it at some point but just bought scram kitty and downloaded my free promo copy of monster hunter.

I really enjoyed snaking, am I the only one? I'm not saying I'd like to see it return but it was a skill that not everyone could pull off. I kind of just felt that if you could do it you were better at the game than people that couldn't.

I just had a match in the nlife launch party tournament with someone called "murfie" (filled out with cpu) they disconnected as they were about to lose. If that disconnect was intentional then shame on you "murfie," shame on you.

edit: you've made me lose my faith in humanity "murfie," I hate you so much at the moment. Gosh isn't MK8 great though?

@eaglebob345 BF4 is infinitely superior to any COD game, in my opinion. All of the bugs have been ironed out now, don't get me wrong, I was pretty furious when I first got it to find it in the state it was but it is a better FPS than COD. Neither compare to MK8 though in terms of being a joy to play - transparent attempt to stay on topic.

I haven't read the article, but I will, I am only here to say that Mario Kart 8 might be the best game I've ever played. It's so, so good; might not make tonight's tourney but am very much looking forward to many more in the future.

Ah I see, sounds really tough. I've got a friend that's a paramedic here in the UK that works similarly long hours, though perhaps not quite as bad as that. Kudos though, I hope you derive a strong sense of satisfaction from it; it's a cool thing to do with your working life.

luke88 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Confirmed for Japan With Free...:

I don't think that it fits at all with the games aesthetic; kind of disappointing, probably not a big deal I guess but It might annoy me to see a load of GLA's racing alongside me when I'm playing online. No more of this please Nintendo.

God, wish I'd ordered mine online, too jealous. I enjoyed this comment section; was filled with venomous hatred for anyone playing the game early until I read some people's funny comments. Reminded me not to take life too seriously.
