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.

Beechbone commented on Upcoming Child of Light Patch to Rename Diffic...:

Hmm, that's kinda strange. So, is the game too easy on "normal"? I usually do my first playthrough of most games on "normal" as I think this is kind of "as intented" and not too hard but not too easy setting. I'm gonna get Child of Light in upcoming weeks and when looking at "casual" vs "expert" I feel like I'm fitting somewhere in between in RPGs. On the other hand the first "Gears of War" on "casual" was a pretty big challenge so naming conventions are really not worth much.

Beechbone commented on Mario Kart 8 Bundle Dips Below £200 In The UK...:

If Nintendo doesn't ship some serious numbers on both the game and the system then it might be game over. I really hope that MK8 will get a lot of press coverage and great review scores for that damn Metacritic to go sky-high and get attention of all the undecided folks. I really want Wii U to succeed and to get more great games. I own Wii U since launch and already played some great titles on it, I'm very happy with the console and don'y want to see it go away. The only way we can shape the industry is to vote with our wallets what games should be made.

Beechbone commented on Review: Child of Light (Wii U eShop):

So it has Off-TV play, correct? And it runs 60fps like on other systems? And, could someone clarify how the co-op works in terms of controls on Wii U? The review says the second player uses Wii Remote in a similiar way to Super Mario Galaxy, but it does not support motion controls. So, do you move the pointer with D-pad or Nunchuck or what?

Beechbone commented on Shenmue 3 Could Happen Via A Kickstarter Campa...:

Well, doing next-gen open world game with rich deep gameplay, voce acting and everything on Kickstarer. Not gonna happen, unless Kickstarter would be just well, a start to attract some publisher willing to fund majoriy of the project alongside marketing.

Beechbone commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

As they say, may the best win, and Nintendo faced off with some classy competition this year. It's always nice to see Nintendo games being recognized but for me BAFTA's are probably the most fair awards show out there.

Beechbone commented on Review: Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (3DS eShop):

As always nothing beats free, so I can't complain. I've been playing this version on 3DS for past couple of days and the contrained screen gets a little in a way of moving around some areas but all in all it's still Mario and it's still awesome.

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

Off-TV play streams video at 60fps (for supported games) so I'd say it's pretty kick-donkey.I agree GamePad's not been used in the most creative ways so far, maybe except for Rayman Legends to which it is absolutely essential. I just like Wii U GamePad :)
Please watch the profanity — TBD

Beechbone commented on Nintendo and Retro Studios Speak on Resistance...:

@unrandomsam Yeah, controllers are nice thing for mobile platformers but only a handful of players will use it and when designing a game you have to assume that most people will use touch controls. Also take into account different screen resolutions and aspect ratios and hardware. It's a lot more pain than developing for one fixed system.

I always had a problem with gaming on phones because you basically obscure large part of the screen with your fingers. It's less of an issue on a tablet but holding a tablet is not that much comfortable, at least compared to say Wii U GamePad.

Beechbone commented on Nintendo and Retro Studios Speak on Resistance...:

You can't port Nintendo platformers to touch devices. However, it is possible to create brand new experiences on phones and tablets (see excellent Rayman Jungle Run) but still it's impossible to hit the Nintendo quality and joy of playing as far as platformers go. Does anyone want Mario auto runner?

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

It's actually good news. Developing cross-gen titles hurts the quality because you have to compromise on a lot of stuff to fit the game on every system.

And don't worry we'll have plenty of awesome games to play on Wii U anyways :)

Beechbone commented on Renegade Kids Regains Publication Rights to Moon:

I really liked "Moon", I thought it was the next best thing to "Metroid Prime: Hunters" when it comes to FPS on NDS. Would be awesome to se a follow up to this on 3DS, without all the hardware limitations of previous gen.

And now, how about that Treasurenauts release date?

Beechbone commented on Monolith Soft Lists "Urgent" Job Postings, Inc...:

As this generation for Nintendo is all about asynchronous multiplayer, I'd like to see just that incorporated into "X" using some online functionality. I mean not a direct multiplayer like co-op or versus but something like sharing, exchanging chracters skills, items or community quests where thousands of players have to contribute in order to fullfil the quest's requirements and so on.

Beechbone commented on Talking Point: Is The Castlevania Series Finis...:

I don't know where Konami will take the series next but considering Lords of Shadow generated enough profit to warrant a prequel, sequel, and PC port I guess they will produce an Xbox One, PS4 game with super graphics and a fitting magnitude. Although it would be awesome to have some more Castlevania on 3DS, either in the vein of Mirror of Fate or classic GBA/DS trilogies.

Beechbone commented on Nintendo Download: 28th November (Europe):

Mario on disc. Nintendo, I can get it 10 pounds cheaper if buying physical copy AND it's not forever and ever locked to my console. I really don't see reasoning behind the pricing on eShop.

Beechbone commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:

Wii U could get more advertising and as 3DS gathers much attention why not advertise Wii U in the same places that 3DS is advertised? Like there is opportunity with the Smash Bros because it's cross platform. And more promotions. There are numerous discounts and promotions on 3DS like buy 2 games get one free or something and there is almost none for Wii U. Didgital Deluxe Promotion is a failure because digital releases on Wii U are more pricey than retail. And what you buy on 3DS does not count towards it. How about promotion like buy Super Mario 3D World and get Super Mario 3D Land for 50% of regular price.

I'd like to see direct comparison but from what I've seen of PS3/360 versions this looks like considerably higher texture resolution. And as I don't really care about PS exclusive DLC, I'll probably play AC4 on Wii U while waiting for Watch_Dogs.

Beechbone commented on Iwata Braves Press Conference to Explain Ninte...:

Apart from new mario and stuff I think Nintendo should finally reveal Zelda U which is THE killer app and system seller that Wii U needs so much. It's not coming out soon I guess but it's time to build up a hype and show potential buyers that if you want to play a really unique, polished and one of a kind adventure, you can have it only on Wii U.

Beechbone commented on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Will ...:

Already played it on 360, with The Missing Link expansion. The game is super awesome. Paying that much more for a different platform is just ridiculous especially considering Wii U is struggling so much on the market. Publishers should support it with competitive pricing instead of charging a lot more than other platforms.
