@sillygostly It's fine, I didn't take it personally I think with the rating system change this one is nailed on for early 2016 (as I said in the article it's about to go for approval). But yeah, I totally understand the frustration with various games no making it to Europe.

@Dakt Well, an advert has been running on the site that was paid for (not my department), not us advertising it ourselves, if that makes sense. Just making that distinction

But yes, I'm agreed on the sentiment in these comments. It seems to have basically been sent out to die, which is frustrating.



ThomasBW84 commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

Ten years, crikey! It's a great landmark for the three directors and all past and present contributors. I've personally had the pleasure of working with some wonderful people, and even though there are many I haven't met in person I've made a lot of 'online' friends.

The community is also something I'm proud of. The debate and love for Nintendo is fantastic, and a hat tip must also go to the moderating team.

As far as I'm concerned, it's been a life changing thing being part of the site and now editor, so I have everyone associated with the site to thank. The Triforce of directors, everyone in the team and all of you in the community. Thank you for being marvellous!



ThomasBW84 commented on Nintendo Download: 29th October (North America):

@Kilroy I updated the link. There's online co-op but I don't believe there's local co-op, unfortunately. It's a fun game though, and though the Wii U version is a bit smoother I actually prefer it on 3DS (as long as you have a New Nintendo 3DS or Circle Pad Pro for easier aiming).



ThomasBW84 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

@AlanJones84 To be clear those descriptions have always been in the scoring policy that's linked at the end of every review. We've only brought them into reviews visibly for some extra clarification as different sites treat the 1-10 scale differently. For us it's possible for a 6 to still be recommended for some, while a 7 means a game is 'Good'. That's always been the case, but a visual reminder can't hurt!



ThomasBW84 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

@mookysam It's ok as single player, but I wouldn't go further than that. I feel the doppel switching mechanic is disappointing, and just makes the experience very stop-start. It's certainly playable, and if you're really determined to deal with it and enjoy the better aspects of the game then that's certainly do-able, there's a decent number of hours here to enjoy if you do so.

@Samuel-Flutter Yeah, the descriptor will be next to scores across all reviews, past and present. It's always our goal to use the full 1-10 range, so 6 doesn't mean a game is rubbish, basically. It's just an attempt to emphasize that!

@AVahne - It seemed like a good time to add it. It's not actually a change to our scoring, of course, but yep, will hopefully stop the "omg you hate this game" arguments as people interpret a 1-10 scale differently.
