#12047176 Wii U eShop Deals - 8/28: $7.49 DuckTales, $6.75 Capcom D&D,...

Posted by rbarba4 on 28 August 2014 - 11:45 PM

 

The gist of the article is that NOE has their Cross Buy discount stuff ready to go while NOA is still working on it. EU people got 25% off of SWD.

Thanks Frisky.

Guess I'll wait it out and hope for a better discount than 25%off

Hey... where'd everone go???

 

New karts available for immediate download!  How 'bout we start-up race night again.

 

Already tried  out one of them and boy do I suck.  I've been running bikes for so long that I can't do jack with karts.

Perfect time to relearn how to race.

 

I'm gonna try to get on at 7pm PST tonight




#12027680 Disney Infinity 1.0 Free on Wii U eShop

Posted by rbarba4 on 21 August 2014 - 07:59 PM

You could still download on the Wii U then turn around and delete it just so that it shows up in your download list.

 

I have the physical copy of the game already and plan on doing this just so I can eventually download it once I hook up a HDD to the system.

Posted by rbarba4 on 21 August 2014 - 07:33 PM

Thanks for the responses. I guess I'll go towards the Lone Ranger playset.

Unfortunately that also means I have to go rent the film (heard bad things) because playing it without having seen the film would be odd.

Still need to play the Lone Ranger set.  Sorta stalled out on DI during the Cars Playset. (BTW, avoid the Cars set).

 

As for the movie, it's not great but tolerable if you catch it on cable some day.  That's how I saw it, flipping thru channels and found it.

Posted by rbarba4 on 07 August 2014 - 11:55 PM

I'm not a huge fan of Aladdin, but I'm excited to see classic Disney characters join the roster.  Now, can we please get a Goofy??

I'd be happy with Goofy if they took it in one of two directions:

1.)  Old school Goofy teaches you how to do... whatever.  Ya know, like the old short cartoons where Goofy teaches you how to fly a plane, play football, surf etc.  That could possibly work in a Toy Box mode.

2.)  Goof Troop playset (unlikely, I know).  Build the town and just go wild.

 

Oh well, dream a little dream...

Just got a Wii U and MK8. Already getting pummeled online. If anyone else wants some free victories, add me. lol

NNID: ihydrox

Always welcome to add me.  But I might be a few levels to high for you right now.

 

Also, here a few tips that might help ya get caught up:

 

-Starting Line Boost:  best boost comes when you accelerate just as soon as the # 2 touches down (makes sense when you see it on screen).  The 2 appears on screen, then slides down a little bit; accelerate once it's done sliding down.

-Vehicle & Racer setup:  hit the Minus (or is it the Plus) button on the vehicle selection screen to see the racing specs for your choices.  Also, don't remember the CAG who said it but only the completely FULL boxes make a difference on your ride.

-Stunts:  tons of places where you perform a trick off of a jump.  You'll need to learn those spots to just keep pace.  And don't jump anywhere and everywhere on the track just for the hell of it (causes you to slow down some).

-Shortcuts:  they DO exist (it is Mario Kart after all).  Some are more obvious than others, as in you'll need a Mushroom to turbo thru.

-Mini Turbo boosts: you can trigger mini boosts on the anti-grav portion of the race tracks by bumping into other racers.

 

That's all I can think of for now.  Have fun :D




#11961506 Rocksmith 2014 Deals **$15 PC download @ Gamestop** New DLC Day! - B...

Posted by rbarba4 on 28 July 2014 - 02:52 AM

so uh after watching the slayer video, i've decided I suck and need to throw my guitar and rocksmith in the trash.  :(

  

Don't be such a drama queen. Next time you BBQ, use your guitar instead of charcoal. Once you eat the food you'll be infused with guitar mojo. Why else do ya think I've gotten sooo many guitars ;) 

But yeah, Audrey's legit. She's probably put in more time on RS than all CAGs... Combined
 

Sorry for asking such a noob question, but I have the original rocksmith (not RS 2014) and I am interested in the deftones DLC.  Mind you, I haven't even opened up the game yet.  Are they compatible or do I need 2014?


All new DLC released since RS2014 only works with RS2014.




#11957775 Club Nintendo Deals ~ New Games Up (8/4-9/7)

Posted by rbarba4 on 26 July 2014 - 07:52 PM

I may still go digital for Remix just because I'm more likely to play it if it's ready to fire up on the console.  And well, 1 would be free and 2 would be bought using my discounted e-shop money.

Yeah, while not great for getting points, a small group does help you get practice in and improve the lines you take around the track.

The mayhem that goes down during a race doesn't give you a whole lotta time to experiment.

 

As for the code, you mean using one of the talk bubbles???  How 'bout " I'm a Little Nervous ".

 

 

Speaking of codes, anyone up for adding CAG to their in-game name; like for me it would look like "(CAG) Nick".  

Would make it easier to figure out who's part of the group while in open rooms

Aside from "Happy", I don't recognize any of those songs. Harmonix doesn't make crap so easy purchase for me.

Harmonix should get the Weird Al parodies to go along with some of those songs:  Royale--> Aluminum Foil, Happy--> Tacky

sorry for the room drops guys. I'm not sure what is happening tonight.

No problem.
