  1. Got Zelda for what I found a rather inflated price of £16 off Amazon because nowhere seemed to have her. Didn't realise these would be so in demand. My boyfriend has Link, Peach and Kirby so we're kinda sharing. I want Sheik and Rosalina!


    Still trying to figure out if Nintendo *really* found a use for them... Their role in smash bros thus far just seems rather bizarre to me.

  2. I got a wii for xmas and have been playing this a lot more than the other games I have thus far - actually love it. Lots of content still to do (didn't touch adventure mode untill i finished main campaign). Need most characters other weapons, but some missions will be the death of me. That said, my highest level is 48 this far...


    Is there any info on what the new content will be coming soon? Not that I've done much of the other maps yet...

  3. Exciting! I haven't actually been 'around' for a Pokemon launch in a quite a while...I didn't have a 3DS until last Xmas so other than looking at the new Pokemon, I didn't bother myself with info too much.


    I'm looking forward to this because it was the only gen I never played/completed. Had the steelbook of either version I'd like on preorder...might go to the midnight GAME launch. 'Cause I'm that goddamn cool.


    Looked at the Version differences on Serebii's site, but other than Pokemon, are there any more? I have no allegiance to either mascot legendary, other than I kinda hate the look of both. Push came to shove I'd prefer Kyogre.

  4. More stupid questions from a n00b:


    1) what's a good/best value external Hard drive to use? I've only ever used Lacie Rugged drives for my computer.

    2) even more n00bish - I've never bought a TV or anything (just shared families one and lived without one at university) - what specs would one look for in a TV if they wanted to get the best out of the Wii U (or any console really)? Again, not hugely in need of cinema style screens here but just wanted an idea from people who would know.

    3) does the WiiU premium pack come with two controllers? I assume not. I would just use current Wii remotes but I think my sister might have killed the rechargeable batteries by leaving them on charge for literally weeks at a time.


    God, I know absolutely nothing.

  5. With Smash Bros having reignited by interest in both gaming and Nintendo I have been toying with getting a Wii U ... But I would LOVE if you guys could advise/tell me things.


    Best offer out there?

    Is the stable of games as tiny as it looks? (I understand third party support was limited...)

    Is it a good price point?

    What do I "need" to have a satisfying console experience - like memory, controllers etc?

    Do I need a big fancy tv for it? By this I mean a television bought in last five years.


    Games I'm interested in ; MK8, Smash Bros Wii U, Hyrule Warriors


    Vague I know but I need to think about it seriously and can't tell if I just want to impulse buy something or if this is something I want.


    Bear in mind: I've never been a serious gamer and always had the Nintendo console. I'm a Nintendo fan at this point and I get what it entails.

  6. QUESTION: Y'know all this 'customise characters!' stuff and all the powers you get - is that literally only for use in Smash Run? I like the idea of changing their powers and some seem cool but...you can't use these 'builds' outside of smash run? What?


    I've got all characters and stages now, love the roster but kinda sad that Ice Climbers are gone. Sad that I didn't even notice until yesterday, too. I got quite good with them in the past games.


    I think I need some of y'all friend codes to fight you guys! I've not fought anyone I know yet. I realised I'm not an expert smash player by any means despite playing this title for years. I want to blame the DS but really...it's me!


    I'm finding characters like Palutena and Rosalina quite hard to get to grips with, at least initially, though my appreciation is growing. I mainly wanted to know If I could customise Palutena outside of Smash Run cause she has some wicked alternate powers.

  7. You're right - I do miss an "Adventure" mode. I wasn't expecting Subspace Emissary again, but something that mixes elements of that, Smash Run and old Melee Adventure would be nice.




    What does everyone think of what they've done to Target Smash? I'm very pursed-lips about it. I loved how each stage was tailored to the character and you KNEW there was a way to get each target, you had to deduce how. Now there's no delicacy.

  8. Hello all! This is my first game purchase technically since I got my 3DS back just after Xmas (though I've been playing Bravely Default on an off it's not my copy) and I've been so excited for it.


    I LOVE that it has the same familiar Smash feel - my instincts still *work* here. There's so much for me to still learn with new characters and I'm taking my time..basically haven't touched Shulk (looks like a beast), Robin, Mega Man etc. I've unlocked all bonus characters I think except

    Bowser Jr

    . I was following IGN's guide for what needs to be down to unlock people but it seems off, to be honest. Jigglypuff just appeared to me out of nowhere after a simple Smash match, and they list her as only appearing aftr 120 matches...but I have yet to see

    Bowser Jr




    - I'm here for the separation of Zelda and Samus' alter-egos. Zero Suit Samus is brilliant, LOVE how she moves and that she has her own bag these days. Haven't touched Sheik yet...Sheik WAS my queen in the Melee days but when Brawl buffed Zelda I began to favour the princess.


    - I will miss Hyrule Temple but then my eyes might explode if I had to focus on all that space.


    - I miss Pokemon Trainer but Charizard *feels* better than before so I accept it.


    - I feel like I haven't worked out the secrets of Palutena/Rosalina...they seem fine but I feel I'm missing something. Also does Pit still have that "glowing wings" move? I couldn't work it out. THEY TOOK AWAY PIT'S ENDLESS GOLDEN SPINNING BLADE ATTACK.


    - Pac Man is wonderful and hilarious and I love him. Sorry Game and Watch. You're over.


    - Smash Run is crazy but I *think* I get it now? I can't be bothered wrapping my head around all these customisation things but they're potentially interesting ... first time you've been able to *improve* your fighters. Can these builds carry into other modes? I'm confused.


    - ONLINE: Has been laggy but varyingly so. I've enjoyed it and it has shown how un-competitively I play this game. I've been playing this series for like 15 years and I'm still mediocre! Oh well. *uses Peach onion move repeatedly to entertain himself*


    Basically I'm very pleased and I've sunk 8 hours into it already. NEED that last character. Then I can breathe.

  9. The *only* bit I think they could have still done, but done differently (for my sake) was


    Magneto putting the metal in the sentinels. That is an incredibly delicate operation and Magneto's powers have rarely seemed that intricate. That's some Jean-as-Phoenix level shit level of intricacy. I still think him putting metal in them is fine, but since the whole final setpiece is very much like the AMAZING first Magneto arc of the Ultimate X-Men comics (Sentinels sent to attack Magneto are reprogrammed by him and he arrives and takes over the White House with intent to humiliate the President) - they should have just done what he did. A bit like when he rearranges Cerebro in X2, it was a case of moving plates around in their heads. This is such a nitpick though.



    Loved seeing Jennifer Lawrence become more Mystique-like in the way she fights. The movie Mystique and how they choreographed her was always inspired and unique. Glad that made it here.


    The ending really got me as a fan who especially struggled with the treatment of the characters in Last Stand, and especially since this film puts you through the ringer emotionally with these characters living or dying. I was like ... "NO. No. Don't bring Jean out. (Do). Don't do this to me." Unff. AND SCOTT. EVERYTHING IS FUCKING RIGHT. Jean, Scott, Storm, Beast, Iceman, Rogue, Colossus and Kitty. And Wolverine. The X-Men, teaching in the mansion. I have tingles.


    It's like the Movieverse is this wonderful little separate story that all lead up to this point, the end - where we know these characters to exist. We've ended on a high, with these classic characters in their environment. It's (I mean, quite an explicit) a heaven-like sequence. Everyone there we see "die" - yet we end up here.





    I DO really wish (considering much more minor characters fates were addressed) that

    Rogue was mentioned. We all know she had a future scene that was cut. I wish we were told she'd died or something. Only odd thing. Though I mean they wouldn't really be bringing her up in the situation they were in, would they? It would have been nice if she'd had more to say, even in the final scene. The movies kinda began with her - she was our intro character.


  10. I hate the concept of Tinder. It's based entirely on physical looks, you know nothing of the person (and they know nothing of you). Its design is beneficial for those just looking for hook-ups, and timewasters just want to browse and chat with no intention of meeting up.


    At the same time I'm glad it exists. It means all of those people will be on Tinder, hopefully clearing up sites like OKC for people like myself.


    I met my new and current boyfriend on Tinder.


    Maybe it coming from "gay world", where these sorts of apps (and their predecessors stretching back to the very concept of 'covert relations') have been omnipresent for the last few years - Tinder is a bit of a breath of fresh air. It feels "cleaner" somehow. I like the facebook connectivity too. You have to be "yourself" as you are to most people online, not just a picture of a penis/abs/whatever. You can see mutual friends (talking point), and you can't pester or be pestered unless you 'match'.


    Yes, there are timewasters. I admit my friends and I played with it like a game when I was with my ex then I quickly deleted it. And yes, some will simply use it for ego boosts.


    But believe me, it's so much nicer than the things that have dominated the gay 'dating' app landscape last few years.


    This is the first 'straight' one to gain traction - be thankful! Us gays have seen it all! Grindr makes me want to tear out my eyes.


    That said - it's not for everyone.


    And looks are part of attraction. It's a fact. That said, physical attraction is...like it says, physical. I never think it's until you meet someone in real life that you know.

  11. The Wall (and associated storylines, crows, Bran etc) is still so bloody boring. Since the Red Wedding nothing about the North/Northerners has been interesting. The Wildling girl/Jon/their relationship last season was engaging but now it's so dull.


    All the other plotlines are cool though. Interesting to see where this season is heading.


    Margaery is ma reine.

  12. Would you fucking come round to the flat already? (Yes, that's an invite.) We have boardgames that need playing.


    Just saw this - I will - it's been too long - aaaaaaa I need to find a time. :bouncy:

  13. What portion of time will this film be set in? As well as Days of Future Past? As we've got two Quicksilver actors here. Or are they going to play the alternative reality thing?


    The X-Men movies have no relation to the Avengers movies. Fox owns the rights to X-Men and mutants but Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch were in a batch Fox allowed to be used apparently. The word mutant very likely will never be mentioned in an Avengers movie.
