I reminds me of a cross between Toy Story on the Megadrive where you used Woody's pullstring in a similar whipping sort of way, and Clockwork Knight on the Saturn.

I'm still undecided. I like robots, but the whipping mechanic seems fairly boring.



A01 commented on Guide: 9 Tips for Playing Runbow:


The first game I played online, the first two rounds ran flawlessly, then rounds 3 - 10 were nigh unplayable.

I've mostly been sticking with the single player though. That's gonna keep me busy for a while. The game has far more content than I think anyone realises.

The huge cast of indie cameos is excellent. I love playing as Scram Kitty. If nobody has done it yet, you should pitch "Super Indie Bros" to Nintendo. It could be a standalone downloadable game, using the Smash Wii U engine, with a huge cast of indie characters. Make it happen! Somehow!



A01 commented on Guide: 9 Tips for Playing Runbow:

It's a lot of fun, but I think it genuinely could be the hardest game I've ever played.

Also, the online lags like crazy. Although I'm impressed it has online at all, I wasn't expecting it.



A01 commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd September (Europe):

Does anyone know if we need to have the game previews (in this case Runbow) still installed on our systems to get the discount? I downloaded and played the preview, but deleted it afterwards.



A01 commented on Nintendo Confirms Super Mario Maker Console Bu...:


I can't believe how many games there are to buy during the rest of the year. It's just absurd.

Devil's Third, Super Mario Maker, Fatal Frame, Starfox Zero, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Triforce Heroes. Federation Force if that's due this year?

A fair few Indie games worth buying too.

And the non Nintendo stuff: Metal Gear 5, Fallout 4, Battlefront and maybe Mad Max.

Can anybody lend me some money?



A01 commented on Nintendo Confirms Super Mario Maker Console Bu...:


If the system breaks, you tell Nintendo and they transfer your purchases over to a new system. It's not difficult.

Granted it's not as simple as it could/should be by just logging in with your account, but people need to stop acting like you can't transfer stuff to over systems if they break. And if you just want to transfer between two working systems for whatever reason, you can do that without Nintendo involved at all.



A01 commented on Nintendo Confirms Super Mario Maker Console Bu...:


Under £20 is an exageration, unless she means used.

But many of the Wii U's recent games have been around £25 at a lot of places at or shortly after launch. Mainly Supermarkets. And sometimes Amazon. And if they're £25 on Amazon, you can use Flubit to get them for around £22 instead.



A01 commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and amiib...:

Not really interested in either of these.

Designing a home was the best part of Animal Crossing, but I'm just not sure about this spin off for some reason.

Certainly not interested in the Animal Crossing Amiibo.



A01 commented on Hands On: Devil's Third - Sampling Online Chao...:

Still interested. Still worried though. Mainly about the framerate.

If they can patch it to improve it, especially in the single player, that'd be grand.

I think it's safe to say this game isn't going to be a success on any real level. But I think it could become a cult classic. A lot of the problems are comedic and not game breaking. It looks like it'll fit into the "so bad it's good" category.

Some of these multiplayer modes sound fun if they're executed well. The one gun in the whole map thing is unique and could be great. And we finally have an explanation as to why there are chickens and fruit.

Biggest issue that absolutely needs solving: framerate. Solve that, and I've no doubt i'll enjoy the game.



A01 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

The redesign certainly looks good.

I like the idea of Miiverse on the whole but I don't use it.

I like it best when it's implemented into games, so you can see peoples comments and drawings relevant to that level/area in the game during the loading screens or one random comment next to the stage selection like on NES Remix. That sort of thing.

But as for actually launching miiverse and looking through it? No. Not interested in doing that. I doubt the redesign will change that, but it certainly looks better than it does now, so that's good.



A01 commented on Prime Day Brings a Few Deals for Nintendo Fans...:

Maybe the Wii U bundle will help the console shift a few more units if the discount is good.

Not interested in Disney Infinity. And nobody is interested in the Smurfs.

On the non Nintendo side of things, I'm interested to see how much Far Cry 4 ends up being.



A01 commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

"trumpeted as a mature exclusive that would change the way we think about action shooters, promising to be a system seller"

Where the hell did anyone get this idea from?

The game always looked, at best, like a decent action game. Nothing more.

That sucks about the performance issues though.



A01 commented on Mojang is Still Open to Bringing Minecraft to ...:

It's weird that the only system Minecraft isn't on is the one system that seems like it was designed specifically for Minecraft and vice versa.

The gamepad with a permanent inventory would just be flawless. I know second screen inventories are seen as lazy implementations of the Wii U gamepad in most games, but for Minecraft where you're constantly switching building materials and tools, it's perfect.

It's actually beyond perfect. There is no game + controller combination better designed for each other.

Still, nevermind.



A01 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:


I really liked Disaster Day Of Crisis. It was great.

The idea of dealing with natural disasters and helping people was new and different. A slight shame about the terrorist plot shoehorned into it though.

It was primarily held back by the hardware it was running on. The Wii couldn't really handle giant natural disasters in as engaging and enthrawlling way as the game deserved.

They did their best and I think they did well. If we got a sequel to Disaster on either the Wii U or even better, the NX, with the added power, they could really do that game idea justice.



A01 commented on The Animal Crossing amiibo Range is Bigger Tha...:


They are overdoing it.

I'll complete the Smash collection, and then I doubt I'll ever buy another one. I imagine a lot of other people will do the same. I think after the Smash series is complete, Amiibo sales are going to plummet.



A01 commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Cuddles Up to Fourth Spot...:


I'll try that as well. Thanks.

Yea, there really does need to be a proper way to turn off the Gamepad without turning the system off. It's so annoying to have to go out of range to do it. Or just let the battery die and not recharge it.



A01 commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Cuddles Up to Fourth Spot...:

Regarding Woolly World, is anyone else having performance issues? My game is stuttering constantly and consistently every few seconds. The music continues to play but the action stops for a brief moment.

The disc looks perfectly fine, but I've already requested a replacement. Which will hopefully arrive today. I hope it's the disc that's the problem and not the Wii U.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue?



A01 commented on Ganondorf, Palutena, Dark Pit and Zero Suit Sa...:

I got my 4 today as well. My Ganondorf was missing his left arm, so I went down to Game to exchange it and they had at least 4 of each of the new Amiibo in stock, they didn't have much else mind you, except the usual ones. Although they did have a couple of Wii Fit Trainers too.

(Yes, I probably could have sold the faulty Ganondorf on ebay, but I didn't.)



A01 commented on Interview: Knitting Together the Pattern of Yo...:

I got the game today and the first thing I did was scan all the Amiibo in, the entire Smash roster works except the Pokemon.

Other than that, I've only been playing for an hour or so, but I think this is my game of the year so far. The cuteness is unbearable. I'd put it down as graphically the most impressive game this year. Other games might look more technically capable, but none are designed as beautifully and well as this.

I'm already enjoying this more than I enjoyed Arkham Knight this week.



A01 commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

Well if I had infinite money...

Retail games can be returned, exchanged, sold, borrowed etc. None of that is possible with download games. You have to make damn sure you want a download game because there's nothing you can do after you've bought it. It's just too risky to buy anything that you won't definitely like.
