I prefer gamefaqs as I only need the walkthrough to give me clue how to make progress when I'm stuck. once done, I won't keep the file. nowadays, youtube also has the same and better than paper guides at times.

​Ok there are plenty that are free? Use them if that's what you like, but prima choose to create and sell guides so people can physically look at them not on a screen, for example my kids don't like reading webpages and would rather have a book.

It should always be free because fans do this themselves.

The wiki is free. This is pointless as an online guide unless it's free too.

I wanted to buy twinkling titanite, and I needed lots of twinkling titanite, and I ended up farming twinkling titanite wherever possible, because twinkling titanite couldn't be bought, until patch 1.04 (?) allowed one to buy twinkling titanite.



On their twitter feed they said the E-guide will get updated as the game goes along

As I have stated on a previous thread the Prima guide is a good place to start, particularly for newbies. The character overviews can give you a quick explanation of the characters and how they play, something Capcom have failed to do. For the more advanced it is also good to have frame data, advanced combos etc on hand on a tablet while in training.
Finally the presentation is pretty slick.

I find guides for 1v1 fighting games pretty pointless. It's not the same as a guide for say something like an rpg. There is no correct way to win. It's all about putting in the practice on training mode and playing rock, paper, scissors against the other guy.

Here's my free guide:
Keep hitting your opponent with a combination of punches and kicks until you win, block when you need to and don't get hit.

There £5.68 saved.

princerules64, that was the best, most helpful reply I've seen on here. … princerules64, that was the best, most helpful reply I've seen on here. Thank you.

No problem, just thought it might help to share what I found since I saved them anyway It was probably such a struggle to find info for HW back then because it released for us a week before North America, and though it had been out in Japan for a month that left a lot of confusing Japanese resources.

Smash Bros at the moment, I looked a little, seems much better off- partly from being a much much more popular game, and partly from being pretty accessible this time around. It's an advantage to us that it's already been out for a week in NA, and it'll release in Japan next week: they might end up borrowing our guides this time
The character and stage unlocks are all simple and not worth worrying about, and everything else is pretty much random and infinite. There's an Events guide on IGN which is probably the most specific of all the modes. My biggest question has been the search for the best way to earn thousands of coins, but my current solution is just playing a variety of modes to not get worn out!

p.s. I never meant to rain on your deal it's still a tempting price for the official guide, which is the best alternative to user content on the internet (sometimes inaccurate, conflicting, lacking details or slow)

do these install on your Wii U as an app or is it just a PDF download ?

princerules64, that was the best, most helpful reply I've seen on here. Thank you.

Anyone who's bought these, is there anything really good in there? Particularly smash bros- from what I can tell, and comparing it to the near infinite amount of content in the Wii game Brawl, there's enough in the game to fill hundreds if not thousands of pages... so if the guides just tell you pretty obvious stuff then it's probably not worth it.

I would agree that I never found any good comprehensive guides for Hyrule Warriors but there were a few places I found some good detailed information- and looking at them now they're pretty well completed, even expanding into DLC (which I'm guessing isn't and won't be covered in the purchase).
zeldadungeon.net/wik…las -Gold Skulltulas
zeldadungeon.net/wik…ces - Heart Pieces (and Heart Containers)
koei.wikia.com/wik…als -Materials (Helps you find which you're missing and their names)
zeldawiki.org/Hyr…ors -General (Good place to look at overview of characters and their elements)
toragame.com/zel…php -The most powerful resource of all, a complete adventure mode guide, but it's in Japanese so you basically have to use chrome or something to get a rough translation which is not entirely reliable (and some enemy names you'll have to figure out the equivalent) but you can figure out a lot of good stuff from this one like where to farm ganondorf etc.
p.s. not to mention the obvious places to look like IGN and GameFAQs which are probably better built up by now than closer to release when I first went looking

No point in eguides, just use the internet.Hardback guides are old school … No point in eguides, just use the internet.Hardback guides are old school and what's best if you collect gaming merchandise.Unless one day you try to sell off used software on ebay.



At first I thought these were physical guides and didn't see the "eguides" so to my surprise I was disappointed that there wasn't a hardcopy guide.

I'd like one for Smash.
