    So good of EG to have this up on the front page *sarcasm*

    One good thing about Wii U couldn't hurt could it?

    Why bother? It's not new. Would you like to see every bit of footage from forthcoming games shown on the front page?

    They never acknowledge a Nintendo Direct is happening. They'll wait till after to report it with their own slant.

    Along with the Direct Nintendo put a couple of new videos up on youtube

    The first is like an overview video. It can be watched in HD if you want to take a look at what the graphics will be like.


    This one is just a 1min advert

    Nintendo just tweeted this picture:



    But it made me realise, are the white and purple pikmin not in this one? I'd assumed they would be but now that I think about it I've never seen them in any screenshot or video and having 7 different types of Pikmin could get confusing. Plus, the rock pikmin are probably quite similar to purple pikmin anyway.

    Pink = flying white? Lovely picture.
  • Deleted user 1 July 2013 18:20:35
    Purple and White varieties were visable in footage shown last December, Ive avoided the majority of footage since so not sure if they have resurfaced.

    edit: that picture is fantastic btw

    Maybe that explains the delays?

    Flying Pikmin look like they'll make for some interesting environment puzzles. I know the main game is looking like a rejig of Pikmin 2, but the altered gameplay and control, along with MP and challenge type levels look to be enough for any Pikmin fan to buy.

    It's like a complete Pikmin package. A good evolution.

    I think I'll suffer some drooling issues over the next month.

    I love that picture too! Just set it as my phone's background.

    Perhaps the pink one is essentially just a flying white, I guess it would make some sense. Maybe the two new ones are actually just evolutions of purple and white, assuming they have been taken out of it. I don't see why they wouldn't be in that picture if they were in the game though. I guess we'll see soon enough.

    I'm going to try and make myself finish Pikmin 2 before I allow myself to buy Pikmin 3 though!
  • Deleted user 1 July 2013 20:03:38
    I'd start trying to collect all the stuff and the creature descriptions some time back, I should finish it really, given how much I enjoy it.

    The last time I played Pikmin 2 I had a game over screen that I didn't even know was possible. I was in a dungeon thingy and something fell from the ceiling so I quickly sent all my pikmin to try to kill it before it killed any of them. It then exploded because it was a bomb and my screen was filled with the words 'Pikmin genocide'.

    I felt awful.

    Looking absolutely glorious. That picture Nintendo tweeted is pretty lush too.

    Can't wait for this to come out, it's felt sooo long. Only a couple of weeks to go.

    Can't wait for this! Loved 1 & 2, and been hankering for more for years - one of the most genuinely sweet and charming game series around.

    As a bonus, managed to pre-order for a few pennies less than £25 courtesy of tapping this link into Flubit - http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/pikmin-3-nintendo-wii-u-preorder-27-99-wow-hd-1597658

    This is my second Flubit trial - also pre-orded M&L: Dream Team for just over £23, which was also an amazing price.

    What's the deal with Flubit? How do they get such good deals? I'm guessing they amalgamate like deals and then strike a bulk deal with an e-tailer... or is it something else?

    Joking aside, this looks great.

    Pikmin 3 only received a 37/40 from Famitsu. :(

    Famitsu is obviously wrong.
  • Deleted user 9 July 2013 21:54:53
    To follow up on an earlier discussion, the Purple and White Pikmin are in the game but will only appear in multiplayer, apparently.

    Huh, that's interesting. I wonder why that is. Thanks for letting us know!

    Pikmin is an acquired taste though, not exactly mainstream, but its looking excellent with every new trailer and a day 1 for sure. Dont expect it to be a system seller though.

    White Pikmin! Purple Pikmin!

    And yeah, that's my wallpaper for the next while, thank-you.

    Yeah, I think they are being sarcastic, though I do wonder what horrors await that would cause them to drop 3 points

    Thanks, that has now prettified my PC.

    Not long now.

    I've still got to find time to finish Monster Hunter and Lego City. I can't see me picking this up on launch, unfortunately. :/

    What is Lego city like? I want to give it a try but am unsure on dropping 40 quid on it. Does it use off tv play as surprisingly this is what I use my wii u for the most
  • Deleted user 10 July 2013 11:44:09
    No off-TV play unfortunately. It is a damn good game though. It's an easy one, which is unsurprising, as it's a kids game at heart. However, it's very well designed, has a entertaining story, plenty of charming characters, many film, tv and gaming references and offers a lot of extra challenges outside of the main missions.

    I was never a big fan of the Lego games i'd played before this one. They felt a little too simple and repetitive, but this one has been great fun. A brilliant game.
