  1. Super Mario Maker

    Super Mario Maker comes with 100 pre-made courses already on the disc. https://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Wii-U/Super-Mario-Maker-892704.html
  2. Let's talk about this place.

    Looks like Europe's first Splatfest has started here.

  4. Splatoon

    The competition winner has been announced. http://www.famitsu.com/news/201506/25081658.html As it stands the costume is for Japan only. There's more runner-up costumes at the link above. They get signed posters from the developers.

    Yes .
  6. Yoshi's Woolly World (June 26th)

    I cancelled my thegamecollection game only order and yesterday morning I got a confirmation e-mail that it was cancelled and I'd receive a refund soon but that was followed a few hours later by a your order has been despatched. ??? Nothing doing on my bank balance but that could take a few days. Am I getting a refund, should I contact them only for them to ask me to return the game? I've arrangements to buy the amiibo bundle here in Ireland instead. Chances are now that it will arrive tomorrow.
  7. The Final Bosman

    I really enjoyed that show. I thought it was very funny and the vibe was just right.

  9. Splatoon

    I'm not the problem. The controls aren't right, they're way too cumbersome. They're not broken but neither are they perfect. The Wii remote and nunchuk was perfect for shooters.
  10. Wii U and 3DS Gaming Bargains

    Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is £20 at John Lewis. http://ie.johnlewis.com/store/captain-toad-treasure-tracker-nintendo-wii-u/p1815117 See if it converts for ye. It automatically switches to Euro and Irish section for me. They can post big bulky items like runners to Ireland but they won't ship a game weighing about 200g. Anyway, £20 isn't €29.

It would have turned out well had they held the reins.
  12. Splatoon

    I hate the motion controls using the gamepad in this game. I want to use a Wii remote and nunchuk. And for those buying Starfox when it comes out, the controls are supposed to be infinitely more frustrating. Incoming video.

    I don't just write Ireland as my address. Other people do live here too you know.

  16. amiibo (NFC)

    Maybe in the UK they were. But they've only been available in Ireland since today and only in thieving Gamestop.
  17. amiibo (NFC)

    They're not available in Ireland either. Only Argos have Shulk and King Dedede available for reservation next week. And only Smyths have put Little Mac back on their website but it's not available, maybe it'll be available soon.
  18. amiibo (NFC)

    Oh yeah, duh! I forgot Dark Pit and Palutena are new.
  19. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    It shouldn't ruin your laughter. It's still a joke of a game.
  20. amiibo (NFC)

    What got restocked exactly? I have a fair idea, but just to be clear. Shulk, King Dedede, the Fire Emblem characters(Robin, Lucina, Marth and Ike), some Little Macs, Dark Pit and Palutena? Weren't the Fire Emblem characters planned for last month to coincide with Codename Steam? Don't answer, they were.
  21. Mario Kart League 2015

    I will more than likely be in as long as I don't forget.

  23. Splatoon

    Living in the sticks isn't the best place to get a good impression of Ireland. I wouldn't want to live in Portumna either. Guinness is very popular. I just don't like it myself. But yes Ireland is full of many, many, many drunkards. Now back to the game. While the sales are good, I hope Nintendo don't take this as a message that we don't care about voice chat. I said I was buying it to support a new franchise and that I'd like to see more risk taking. I said I'd voice my disquiet on Miiverse but never did. So off I go to Miiverse and on the day they've changed the rules.
  24. Splatoon

    You're right. Guinness isn't nice.
  25. Splatoon

    France, yes Wii U is doing very well there. Germany I don't know about. UK is tumbleweed territory alright. Give the Japanese the opportunity to torture marine life and they'll jump at it.
