@firstnesfan Fair enough. But GT was designed for PS3, just like Forza 4 was desinged for X360, and just like Mario Kart 8 was designed for Wii U. Each of these titles looks and runs great on their respective systems but to port them over would require some serious work because each system uses very different architecture. They clearly were building Project CARS for PC and new consoles share a lot of similiarities with modern PC's. They probably didn't think about how their code would translate onto Wii U and now it's too late to achieve similar effect on all systems. Even if they downgrade the visuals it will still run at 30 fps, which is half of what ideal performance on PC/X1/PS4 is.



Beechbone commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

I understand why everybody is angry but quality of Project Cars on Wii U would be seriously compromised. Worse graphics, worse framerate and worse controls than on other current gen platforms. Maybe it's for the better. Hey, at least they don't say something like "haha, screw Nintendo" but look to the future to support the next console with what can become the best version of the game. And every Wii U fan will eventually buy NX anyway.



Beechbone commented on Video: Go Beyond The Beards With This Behind T...:

Until now I wasn't aware of the new guitar button layout. That explains why there's no backwards compatibility with old instruments. I like that they are trying to change GH and not just go with a remaster of old formula. Still it seems there's no drums support, am I right? That would be a shame.



Beechbone commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Use Downloadable D...:

Now I;m actually considering getting an external HDD and a digital copy of the game. I'm almost out of free space on my 32GB Wii U due to all the recent Virtual console titles being, especially Metroid Prime Trilogy. Also I got Wind Waker digitally from some promotion.



Beechbone commented on Weirdness: Super Meat Boy Is Calling For Your ...:

I would like to see him appear in Smash just because I like Super Meat Boy and they could surely come up with some cool moves for him. Not gonna happen, because he's not that popular amongst Nintendo fans, and he is, you know, a chunk of meat with no skin, bleeding constantly, can't see it being a good fit for Smash.

I'd love to see Shovel Knight, though. And Rayman, and Bayonetta, and ... there's so many to choose from. Hell, I would even like to see a boy from Little Inferno :D



Beechbone commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Developers Talk ...:

I upgraded to New 3DS so I'm ok with it releasing exclusively on the most recent hardware but it seems strange that a 2D game with simple graphics can't run on standard 3DS while some visually impressive 3D games can (like Smash Bros).



Beechbone commented on Nintendo's Implementation of Cross-Buy is Surp...:

Yeah, seems like a hell of an exploit. Nintendo should finally do a reliable profile system that makes sense. Also, speaking of cross-buy, I would really love to see something like cloud saves, where I can play OlliOlli on the go, and when I get back home, I can continue from the same spot on Wii U.



Beechbone commented on Review: OlliOlli (3DS eShop):

I'm loving the game but have you experienced any stability issues? The game is randomly crashing for me once in a while. It's not a deal breaker but it's probably the only game that ever did that to me.



Beechbone commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:

I have my dlc and instruments on Xbox so I'm going with the Xbox One version, but it would be great for Wii U to have such a game on the platform. I think it would cater more to newcomers because majority of the series fans come from other platforms. But Rock Band is a great asset and its presence on Wii U would not isolate Nintendo's console from the rest. I hope it will eventually come out on Wii U.



Beechbone commented on Review: Pokémon Shuffle (3DS eShop):

It's okay to play twice a day on my way to and back from work. Not the best match three I've seen but they made a good effort in designing the mechanics and how they tie-in with the Pokemon.



Beechbone commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Still Set for May as Online e...:

This was a long time coming and actually still is couple months away. I loved DLC pack 1 so obviously I'm eager to play the second one but yeah, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to deliver this content earlier. Unless it's really taking so long to develop it, then I don't mind waiting if the content is polished.



Beechbone commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

Also, here in Poland I don't see any stock shortages. You can buy pretty much any amiibo that has been released so far in Europe for it's normal price. I'm not really collecting all of them but I will be picking up some of the upcoming ones.



Beechbone commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

I don't get what's the point in going for that kind of low stock of some amiibos? I understand that people are more keen to buy limited stuff because they realize it's not gonna be available later, but Nintendo seems to deliberately underproduce them.



Beechbone commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

This is just a digital re-release and nothing more. I remember playing it couple of years ago with wiimote + nunchack and honestly I don't know what's the big deal with "bad controls" in this game. I admit that it controls rather horrible with wiimote only but if you're using the nunchuck it plays just fine.

Also, these videos are pointless. When Metroid hits eShop in a week's time, let me predict what's gonna happen. Is it going to be a different game? Will there be anything changed or added or enhanced in the eShop version? The answer is: NO.



Beechbone commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:

Never happened to me and I can't see it happening on New 3DS. I carry the 3DS either in my pocket or a case, never loose in a bag so that's totally useless to me, especially that most of the games I have in digital copies anyway.



Beechbone commented on Video: Super Mario 64 Is Getting A Fan-Made HD...:

Cool, the question is does this game really needs a remake? Nintendo could do an official one probably for a rather small cost using SM3D World assets and a little bit updated/enhance gameplay/controls.

I guess there's a bigger chance for original SM64 to be released for Wii U VC in some future.



Beechbone commented on Kickstarter Project Wants to Turn Your Game Bo...:

Great idea, let's take cult classic portable console and make it not-portable. Seems like these guys saw PlayStation TV device and thought it would be cool to do the same with GB. And 65 thousand euro? That's a lot of money for TV adapter.



Beechbone commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

I guess the way to commercial success is just making kick-ass games, and Sega does not seem to get it. They should stop trying so hard to reinvent Sonic and just do a super polished 2D platformer that relies on tried ideas. When they nail the "classic" Soinc kind of game, they should start experimenting with it little by little.



Beechbone commented on Guide: Getting the Most out of Your amiibo wit...:

Do you have to place the amiibo on the GamePad every time you start Smash Bros. ? Or it's just one-time scan of the figure and the game remembers it? The point of having physical figures is the interaction so I was kind of wondering how often do you have to use them with the gamepad,



Beechbone commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update Will Unlock amiib...:

It's greaat to see that various amiibos will work with multiple titles. I also hapoe that for Smash Bros. the same amiibos will work with both 3DS and Wii U versions in a way that you can carry your amiibos state and progress between both games.



Beechbone commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

I was wondering why Nintendo was showing this aliased 720p screenshots all the time and here's the answer. 720p with no AA. I couldn't care less about resolutiongate so it doesn't affect my thoughts on the game. Still getting it on day one. And kudos to Nintendo that they didn't lie with promotional screenshots like almost everybody else does.
