  1. A little late but here's the UK sales charts. Individual Formats All Formats Kirby is clinging on in 40th place. I expect it'll be gone next week. There's only 2 Nintendo titles in the top 40. It will be interesting to see how high up Splatoon places next week. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ This weeks Japanese software and hardware sales charts.

  2. Splatoon

    I had to get the game one way or another by Friday. Sorry folks. Nah, but it was probably an inkside job. If they're smart they'll just sell the game and amiibo separately. Could even make more money that way. The Inkling Squid amiibo would make a tidy sum on Ebay.
  3. Splatoon

    Splatoon - Video Review (Wii U) They don't do scores but "loved" it. Single player is fun though a bit short and the multiplayer is the best yet on the Wii U, runs near flawlessly at 60 fps. In short, one of their favourite Wii U games.
  4. Splatoon

    Here we go! Let the floodgates open!
  5. I told you before, I wouldn't use them. They've nothing to do with gaming. They don't offer any benefit. Have them as collectible figurines, no problem. But keep them away from games. Kids love action figures, who didn't growing up? That's what most of these companies are preying on. Yes there is the older market that like them as collectibles but I don't think ye are their biggest demographic. They're a link by proxy but do actually nothing that the software and machine can't perform without them. They're an artificial tie-in.
  6. @dazzybee It's a bit of both. amiibo have got worse. It was different using the Smash characters to unlock a Mii costume in MK8. Now a lot of the games are getting their own waves of amiibo, e.g. Mario Party 10, Splatoon and Yoshi's Woolly World. They haven't sorted out the old stock and yet they're flinging new amiibo off the conveyor belt. Splatoon amiibo unlocks the characters, 20 challenges each, mini games, weapons, gear. All on disc paywalled content may I remind you. Mario Party 10 has a mode that's completely unusable without amiibo. There was an article that I posted before that explains it better than I can. I'll try to find it.
  7. Splatoon

    Nope. The cheapest is €50 for the game. Thegamecollection was ~€35. They should factor in the extra time for delivery. If a game doesn't arrive Friday, it's an extra 3 day wait. 4 days this weekend because of the bank holiday. Do ye get post on Saturday? We don't.
  8. Don't forget the extra weapons and gear that they unlock.
  9. Splatoon

    C'mon now. Do you really think it just arrived in their warehouse this morning? Strange, most other places don't have that problem. And as I've been finding out, it's common practise for thegamecollection to do this. They know it takes longer to ship overseas so it should be posted earlier.
  10. Splatoon

    I got my despatched confirmation e-mail from thegamecollection. The race is on to get it here by Friday.(It won't happen)
  11. Splatoon

    First review. Splatoon - Video Review (Wii U)
  12. And in Europe, isn't the only way of getting the Inkling Squid by buying the Collectors pack of game plus Squid amiibo?
  13. Splatoon

    No, it's par for for the course by my standards. Some of ye are getting it today. I'm now going to be getting it at least next Tuesday.
  14. Splatoon

    I see my order is "processing". So now they respond to my e-mail. F*ckers! Sincerely shove your apology up your @rse! Here's an idea, ship it earlier for Europe. Absolute b0110cks!
  15. Project CARS

    First Wii U footage of Project Cars. Some compromises had to be made. Sorry, I couldn't resist. I don't think we'll see it. It'll be too late, probably more expensive than the other versions by that time and it'll be severely lacking compared to the other platforms. Wasn't it nice of Wii U owners to pay for the other versions and get nothing in return?
  16. Splatoon

    See! Told you there was nothing to worry about. You do this all the time, fretting over nothing when orders come close to delivery time. 2 days early. God, life is so unfair. Second official Splatoon × Ika Musume collaboration illustration from Masahiro Anbe.
  17. Football Season 2014/2015

    FIFA. F*king Idiots For Always. Six Fifa officials including vice-president Jeffrey Webb arrested http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/32895057
  18. Splatoon

    You'll get it by Friday I'm sure. My Splatoon order still says "Awaiting Stock/Release" on thegamecollection. It's 5 days since I e-mailed them and I've heard nothing. I've tried Tweeting them too. Nothing. I'm resigned to getting it on Tuesday at the earliest now. I'm going to f*cking lay into them when/if that happens because they probably think they can do that with my Yoshi's Woolly World order as well. I give them loads of business. Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush arrived yesterday. There are people that had Splatoon delivered yesterday and will do so again today while my game hasn't moved from their warehouse.
  19. Splatoon

    Splatoon - IGN Plays Live Watch this again tomorrow at 3p.m.(BST). It goes live just as the review embargo is lifted so it should be more in depth and probably talk about the review.

  21. Wii U eShop Thread

    http://nintendoeverything.com/nintendo-tried-for-months-to-make-the-humble-nindie-bundle-global/ Cool idea. I hope comes out here eventually and expands the list of games. I own practically everything on the list for Wii U.
  22. Yoshi's Woolly World (June 26th)

    Eurogamer have updated the article above and removed Toads name so he is included it's assumed as a skin for the game. He could be made look rather funny if they put his mushroom hat as Yoshi's nose.
  23. You said Smash Bros. which saves data but then reel off games that unlock items in games as opposed to saving. There was nothing wrong with how I phrased the question. How many games can each amiibo save data for before needing to be wiped to use on another game that needs to save data? Really? You know what I meant. Must I spell out everything so as not to be interpreted in any other possible way? Pedantic much? And yes the answer is 1. Not practical at all.
  24. You didn't answer the question. How many games can each amiibo save data for before needing to be wiped to use on another game? Gamecube memory card 59 = 4MB amiibo = 4KB Progress, eh?
  25. Wii U General Discussion

    http://mynintendonews.com/2015/05/26/rumour-asda-supermarket-to-stop-selling-wii-unintendo-3ds-products/ Bad news though the lower prices could get some more owners and some of ye potential bargains.
