banacheck commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

It's bye bye Nintendo if they go digital-only Microsoft have already proved millions are not ready for a digital only future, otherwise Microsoft would of have not pulled a 180 & the XboxOne would be disc-less as we speak.



banacheck commented on Oddworld Inhabitants Is No Longer Working On W...:


It has been known for a few years now that it actually costs Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo nothing to allow you to play online, and chat.

Could you please go on to tell us who pays for Sony's, Nintendo & Microsoft online infrastructure? If these companies don't pay these costs themselves.



banacheck commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

It will be very ironic if it sells well & gets a sequel on the other systems. Also the Gamepad features where far from ground breaking as others would have you believe. I think no body is going to notice them missing if the truth be told.



banacheck commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

Hopefully Nintendo have got there head on this time around, & have actual games in development already for NX, & of course speaking to 3rd parties. I agree about Smash Bros being a launch game, it could be like you said an Ultra Smash Bros with all DLC etc. This would work very well with many not owning a Wii U, they could also do the same with Zelda U.



banacheck commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Wether your into the PS4, XboxOne or the Wii U this is a great loss for gaming overall, it is a massive shame that he was only 55. Iwata legend will always live on through Nintendo's Hardware & Software, & will massively be missed, R.I.P. Mr Iwata.



banacheck commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

Its sad it's not coming to the Wii U & it's also reasonable of why its not, definitely will be picking this up on the PS4. Don't gamers play games nowadays? I find it hard to believe people on here love games with some of these comments.



banacheck commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

Its not surprising with some of the games that have been releasing lately on other formats, and all you'll see in the charts next-week is The Witcher 3. It's good to see Super Smash Bros doing well with Monster Hunter, also the delay didn't help.



banacheck commented on Digital Foundry Gives Its Take on Watch Dogs f...:


Most people go in guns blazing shooter style and will quikly go back to GTA V but when you like the stealth approach you wil learn to appreciate the way this game works. Hacking the environment. Taking down guards one by one. Planing an ambush on a criminal convoy. I love this stuff

Glad you enjoyed Watch Dogs, I also enjoy Watch Dogs but own the PS4 version. I am like you by playing Watch Dogs stealthily, it's a lot more rewarding gameplay wise. Slowly taking out guards one by one, getting in and out unseen and only shooting if I have no other option. With all the stuff to do in Watch Dogs, the digital trips, side quests etc, I real enjoyed Watch Dogs.



banacheck commented on Keiji Inafune Discusses the Indie Experience i...:

In 2010 Keiji Inafune announced that "Japanese gaming is dead,” at the GDC Keiji Inafune was asked if the situation in Japan has improved he said.  “To be completely honest, not in a big way." This is what this speech at the GDC is about, it's ashame but thay've still got along way to go to get back to there glory days.



banacheck commented on Electronic Arts CEO Discusses The Company's Pl...:

3D VR two totally different things, the Virtual Boy failing not surprised technology has come a long way since then. It all depends on price and software, also VR will be a try before you buy sort of thing at your local Game or something. It not like it'll be shown at E3 with new software much like how Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo does it. The marketing is what's going to make it or break it, because how do you market something you cannot show over a TV?



banacheck commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

What i would say to dev's that put passion into there games is totally drop Nintendo, a business is a two way thing not one. Anyway in this day and age 3rd party's don't need Nintendo, there are plenty of other platforms that actually cares about there own platform.



banacheck commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


Well, it's so you could keep playing your PS4 games while you're out. It isn't a cross-buy deal, Killzone isn't downloaded to both your Vita and your PS4.

Cross-buy deals are game's you get both for the PS4 & PSVita, you talking about streaming Resogun work's perfectly find. But streaming comes down to how good "your" internet connect is, and this is explained to people in black & white.

And you mean the PS4 is essentially truned into a game server and the PS Vita into a client.

there are PS3 games with cross-buy too. That's a different thing, it's awesome, but different.

Cross-buy is on all Sony's platforms, PS3,PS4 & PSVita and i agree its awesome.



banacheck commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


If the second screen is such a waste of time then why is it one of Sony's main selling points now for connectivity between the Vita and PS4?

The main selling point with the PS4 & PSVITA, is so you can carry-on playing your game on the move while not on the PS4. One of the reasons for cross-buy again is so you can carry-on playing the game where you left off on the move,



banacheck commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I'm very happy it's an next-gen exclusive & not being held back by the PS3/Xbox360, cannot wait to play it especially as it's developed by Rocksteady. And for the first time you'll be able to drive the Batmobile, it not coming to the Wii U isn't surprising reslly.



banacheck commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

I agree if a game is not being made for the system you own, you should 1) if you want to play the game bad enough buy the system it's on, but let's be fair no one in there right mind is going to do that for one game. 2) So stop whining about it, and the same goes for the people whining about Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts3 & Bayonetta.



banacheck commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

Hopefully Sony gets more stock out fast, the PS4 has sold around 3X what the PS3 did on launch. PS4 has done in 3 months what the WiiU did in just over a year, when it comes to lifetime sale's.

There is a difference between constructive criticism and the flaming "fanboy" remarks. If you choose to do the latter, you may be banned. -Lz



banacheck commented on Talking Point: NFC And The GamePad Can Succeed...:

I love LBP for that kind of thing, some of the levels made by people is unbelievable. Everything from 2D shooter to racers, platformers. Game's that you wouldn't think where possible to make, Mod Nation Racers was another really good one which is on the PS+ this week for the PSVITA.



banacheck commented on Console Wars Book Paves The Way For Movie Writ...:

I loved Tazmania, Ecco, Sonic, Aladdin on the MegaDrive, but I also loved Street Fighter, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country on the SNES thay both had some excellent games. I used to play Street Fighter a lot with my friend and his brother, winner stays-on good times.



banacheck commented on Feature: When Cranky Kong Took On Twitter:

You think I’m cranky? Check out some of the message boards out there!

So true,

Old enough to remember when falling in a pit in a platformer was called “lack of skill” and not “cheap.”




banacheck commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

I love the DK games, it's ashame it's not selling well in Japan but that doesn't stop me from getting my pre-order & enjoying it. Obviously I would like to see it do better here in EU & US, so we have a chance of another DK game in the future. Only 2 days now.



banacheck commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

I liked the X & Bayonetta2 trailers and that, I was hoping for a release date for Bayonetta2 but it wasn't to be. I agree with some other that the 3DS seems to be getting more focus, I thought more focus would have been on the Wii U this direct but hopefully next time.
