  1. amiibo (NFC)

    Japan is getting more Marth, Ike, Lucario, Meta Knight, Lucina, and Robin amiibo next month. God knows they need them more than any other region. [TWEET]604166105540612096[/TWEET]
  2. Wii U General Discussion

    They're free to air channels so there's nothing illegal about it.
  3. Wii U General Discussion

    You can get all the UK terrestrial channels including all the various BBC's for free on satellite. Who makes money there? Nobody.
  4. Wii U eShop Thread

    That's the North American press release. We get our European press release on Mondays excluding bank holidays. There's sales on there like the Transformer, Spiderman, Zumba and Fit Music that aren't valid over here.
  5. Super Mario Maker

    Nintendo has updated the Mario 30th anniversary website with a history and timeline of the Mario series from its very beginning right up to the catastrophe. http://www.nintendo.co.jp/mario30th/sp/history/index.html
  6. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    I was exactly the same. Loved the different strike animations and how you could clobber the opposition.
  7. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    Mario Tennis is far more true to the real game than Strikers. And Mario Golf is real simulation just with a fantasy setting. Strikers could be Olympic handball only it wouldn't be as popular. Strikers has 5 players and Olympic handball has 7. I just prefer the real game than their take on it. That's not to say I don't like wacky football games. I loved Nintendo World Cup back in the day on the NES.
  8. amiibo (NFC)

    Get a 10% off amiibo code to use in the Nintendo UK online store when you buy select Wii U games from the eShop.
  9. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    I've said worse. I've never gotten into the Mario Strikers game. It's barely football at all. There's too much daft stuff like scoring 5 goals with 1 shot. Anybody remember Sega Soccer Slam on the Gamecube? Anyway, I much prefer the real simulation, PES being the best. Now I'll look for that Zelda rumour. It was so bad, that's why I didn't give it much credence before. http://hiddentriforce.com/zelda-wii-u-and-nintendo-e3-2015-rumors/ There's more rumours about Zelda and other games at the above link.
  10. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    The Big Nintendo E3 2015 Preview - Game Scoop! 346 I will say before I watch this that I've heard rumours that Zelda will be shown. It won't be playable. There's no great credible source but I'll find it after I watch this video which will be in about 50 minutes. Please no Animal Crossing, no Mario Strikers, definitely no Wii U Music. :p I really think if I had to bet on one new game, it'll be Pikmin 4.
  11. Wii U General Discussion

    I was wondering regarding the BBC iPlayer and how it's only for UK residents only. Would it be possible to use it here in Ireland if I create a Mii and put my country of residence as the UK? Similar to how the loophole worked with creating a Russian Mii for the eShop and getting discounts. Or is there any other work around?
  12. Splatoon

    Spoiler tags people please! Supposed leak from the forthcoming Prima Guide of the upcoming DLC weapons.
  13. Wii U eShop Thread

    The Americans really did get a bad deal on the price($60). If I had of had to pay €50-55, I'd have waited until later to buy it especially after the last Splatoon Direct.
  14. Wii U eShop Thread

    So Europe was left out of this one. http://www.perfectly-nintendo.com/splatoon-available-for-pre-purchase-in-japan-and-north-america-special-offer-jp-bundles-uk/ Another little site mini crash just there again. It's strange that Splatoon was not given an option for pre-loading in Europe when other games before it had it.
  15. Wii U eShop Thread

    Have we not got pre loading yet? I wouldn't know, I never buy retail games digitally so it doesn't affect me. I thought Smash Bros. was the first game to have this feature. The site is struggling a bit today. Takes an age to edit a post and it's mini crashed for 30 seconds a couple of times on me today.
  16. Yoshi's Woolly World (June 26th)

    New Yoshi's Woolly World screenshots.
  17. Wii U eShop Thread

    No, I've not played it. I've watched a good lot of previews and videos. It looks very good but I'm swamped with games so I'll leave it for now. That Humble Nindie Bundle has also thrown me a bit. I've bought nearly every game on it but only finished Steam World Dig on it. If it does come to Europe I could have saved a lot of money by waiting and if it does come I'd like to see what gets included as part of the promotion. I don't think people really care about the charts. Besides you can check them easily from the eShop on the Wii U. They never give numbers. It's strange Splatoon is included on the American chart but not the European one.
  18. Wii U General Discussion

  19. Splatoon

    20 challenges for each amiibo, mini games, weapons and gear.
  20. Wii U eShop Thread

    I don't ever ever post the Wii U eShop charts but I was interested to see how Swords & Soldiers II would do because of its price tag of €19. 1. Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition 2. The Fall 3. SteamWorld Dig 4. Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones 5. OlliOlli 6. Paper Mario 7. Super Mario 64 8. Splatoon 9. Donkey Kong 64 10. New Super Mario Bros. 11. Super Mario World 12. DuckTales Remastered 13. EarthBound 14. Super Mario Bros. 3 15. Mario Party 10 16. Super Metroid 17. Donkey Kong Country 18. Super Mario Bros. 19. Zelda: A Link to the Past 20. Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara That's the American chart and it's nowhere to be seen. The European chart isn't much better. It's at no.18. It couldn't be more prominent on the eShop, it's the first thing you see. The first Sword & Soldiers is €3 by comparison.
  21. Splatoon

    Another Splatoon x Musume illustration.
  22. Football Season 2014/2015

    This self censorship stems from a long, long time ago. There was a time I got a warning for swearing. It wasn't directed at anyone but ever since I substitute these in * $ 1 # @ 0 € instead. I've never forgotten that PM. The infraction was minor but I contested it which I've learnt is futile. The infraction wasn't from you but I did have correspondence with you privately regarding the matter. I said others do it and nothing happens, it was an absolutely ridiculous warning and still maintain so. This is part of what you wrote in a PM and I quote: "13) Swearing, and use of slurs about race or sexual orientation are prohibited. Slanderous, defamatory, obscene, indecent, lewd, pornographic, abusive, insulting, threatening, harassing or obnoxious comments and/or images are not tolerated, nor is making light of serious issues such as rape." I've a very long memory and ever since then I censor my swearing. The very fact that you're telling me not to censor and almost encouraging me to swear proves it was wrong that I got that warning in the first place. : peace:

    Ah here. You cannot be
  24. Splatoon

    Just for that, Leicester will be relegated next season. Funny now? Besides I haven't been the worst about voice chat. There are others that won't buy Splatoon partially because of its omission.
  25. Splatoon

    I mentioned the hard powering down on Saturday night during the Testfire Demo. Had to do it several times during the first hour when it just kept endlessly searching for players. It's something that wouldn't be hard to patch in a fix for. It's very strange that something so simple and necessary slipped through the net.
