BertoFlyingFox commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I just hope WiiU gets all the UbiArt games that release. We got Child of Light but no Valiant Hearts for some reason. I'd like to see more of these made and I hope they release on the eShop.

As for AC, I bought BlackFlag on WiiU and that game has pretty much been my endcap to the AC series. With the story being splintered across different platforms, I'm not surprised most WiiU owners skipped them.

As for WatchDogs, I did something I never do and bought it on impulse for PS4. Personally, it isnt very fun and I'm planning on trading it in. If the WiiU version does something more entertaining with the hacking sections then I may get that version.

I dont care what Ubisoft does from here with their "mature" games, I'm just glad I got ZombiU out of this deal.

BertoFlyingFox commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Okay....I have a feeling Nintendo would never want this on their platform anyway. Good luck asking for $330,000 just to up-res really old video.

Sooo, Why the hell is the girl only wearing a bra the whole time? And it's called Night Trap....is...is this Obsessed Stalker Simulator 2014: Booby Trap Edition?

BertoFlyingFox commented on Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack Poses...:

We (should) all know by now that tablets will play a bigger role in the gaming industry. They're doing this for good reason because they know lots of parents would rather hand off their tablet to the kids, instead of going out and buying an expensive system on top of this expensive bundle.

I think it's a cool alternative and still doesnt really take away from what a console provides, which is a dedicated device playing games at a better quality.

People will buy this and instantly feel the pains of fluctuating battery life, varying un-optimization by tablet make/model, low quality image/controllers, and an uncertain business model going forward. They could cut DLC up and turn it all into in-app purchases.

BertoFlyingFox commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:

While I enjoy Nintendo, this is going to be their biggest problem going forward: acting like normal humans.

Some of these companies treat their business like feudal Japan, a chained country completely bonkers with secrecy, or self-image, or a mix of both. Their eccentricity is both a strength and a weakness.

Adelman really is better off, instead of being treated like some Nintendo Pariah (most ridiculous thing I've ever typed I think) not allowed to comment on anything. I hope this doesnt mean they'll hire some weirdo to run their indie department and eventually turn it into the crap it was before.

Good luck Dan

BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

I'm confused, Do we even know what the actual online consists of yet? I mean I'm reading in different places that there will be online of some sort, but it could end up being competitive or some as-yet-unannounced co-op adventure mode.

Anyway, the lack of online co-op for the story mode doesnt bother me at all. I dont really play many games online besides MarioKart8 and I play a ton of local co-op whenever games actually have it as a feature....which is to say once in a blue moon.

BertoFlyingFox commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

Please dont tell me they're going to use another stupid name to market something.....dont call it QOL because it feels like it should be pronounced "coal" which isnt good for your health.

Someone needs to get their naming guy the hell out of the cool kids section in Akihabara and their UI designers need to be put there, instead of a padded white cell thinking up another unfun/sterile design for a gaming console.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Drop in Momentum Is A Big...:

I think we wont see anything new hardware-wise until 2017-2018. As I posted in the other financial article, it might actually help Nintendo to rebrand the WiiU and introduce a remodel with color schemes, similar to how iMacs helped rebrand Apple and generate attention. This is of course random speculation, I know nothing about Nintendo's finances and the like.

I love my WiiU, but I think the branding got them in a funk and all the financials seem to be showing it's for the long haul. I feel an evolution would've caught more people's attention, rather than a successor to their previous system. While 3DS worked as a successor, Nintendo's latest ideas for their next system show they're eager to evolve past the DS/Wii branding and jump into new territory. And personally, they'd be better off for it so long as their new branding doesnt echo that godawful Doctor's Office aesthetic they took a liking to.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

I love playing WiiU (especially co-op), but it's clearly going to be a struggling console. "The next big game" wont pull them out of this, they could just hope for a good library on a system that transitioned them to HD.

The 3DS is in a bit of a slump but still an incredibly strong handheld that seems like it has a long life ahead of it. The library has already been great so it can only get better from here. I'd personally like to see a 2DS XL kind of deal with two analog sticks.

@shigulicious A remodel with different color schemes would be interesting. I dont think it would happen, but at the same time it could bring a re-branding and catch peoples attention. Reminds me of the iMac, which kinda put Apple back on the map while giving them time to work on something bigger and better...sounds like something Nintendo could play to their strengths. Then again I dont know junk about their finances so it probably isnt even a possibility.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Giana Sisters Developer Under Fire Over Diesel...:

The hell? Diesel is a German surname, Rudolf Diesel is the engineer who made the diesel engine. This is completely ridiculous lol.

Next up: Mcdonald's sues famous farmer for using same name.
"Frankly, we sell cows that go moo and chickens that go cluck...this children's song is entirely too similar to Mcdonalds branding. Shut it down!"

BertoFlyingFox commented on Live: The Nintendo Gaming Lounge at San Diego ...:

Yeah whatever, I dont see it as entertaining. Just a lot of commentators acting like bad radio hosts to boring pidgeon-holed playstyles and character choices.

Most of the other games at EVO had exciting moments though. Opinions...go figure.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Live: The Nintendo Gaming Lounge at San Diego ...:

This was refreshing to watch. After seeing how boring wavedashing and edge-hogging made SSB:Melee at EVO....it's just good to see gamers playing SSB and not boring me to death with un-interesting techniques.

Could've done without all the character mirroring but still, it was fun.

@destinyman That is great news! I've been wanting to play that game again for soooo long after getting a small taste of it sometime in the mid-90's.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Release in Japan See...:

It looks interesting enough to try but my main handheld is a 2DS so I wont be able to use it. That wedge design is just so damn comfortable while playing. I still have a 3DSXL but rarely play it since the clamshell design kinda adds strain to my thumbs.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Areal Passes Kickstarter Goal, Yet More Peculi...:

No thanks, I dont back spam-bots. I'll stick to reading all the dumb PR they could come up with through gaming site articles.

If they are really not involved with each other in any way, Vostok Games is doing a crap-job at expressing that. They need to release a statement clarifying this junk and stop fawning over the game they're making that's 2 years away. Another company is saying they are you....rectify it you fools!

BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@rjejr
Must be a select group of "PS+ people". I could never buy all the games PS+ gave me for my subscription. Even now with a lot of them being old and pre-owned, it would cost me a lot of cash. The constant discounts and flash sales have been stellar too.

@truewiimaster
That's exactly the problem. A rewards program is only worth the rewards put out, especially for its "elite status" members. Most reward programs (this includes the DDP....run by Nintendo) would give you a coupon so you could spend it however you please in their store.

I'm reading comments about buying the amazingly sub-par Game&Wario for the DDP coupon....but they arent realizing how round-about that sounds. "Hmm, I'll just settle for this meh-game and get points for Nintendo's much better rewards program that'll give me a coupon for anything on the eShop".

BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

It isnt really the download-only rewards that disappoint me....it's the choices. I got quite a few of those through club.nintendo already and quite a few of the other options dont come across as a "platinum reward".

Would've been nice if this reward came along with a bonus discount for certain eShop games like Tomodachi Life or Yoshi's New Island. Maybe an interesting way of releasing the first gamecube game on WiiU VC....i dont know. Luckily I havent picked up Earthbound or DKCR3D, so it'll be between those for me.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Renegade Kid Open to Another Kickstarter Campa...:

Ehhh, I dont see the need for Moon Chronicles U, unless the amount needed for that to happen is really cheap, probably wont be a successful KS. I know I wont be picking it up, it doesnt interest me much...if at all.

These guys need to regroup and go back to the drawing board. They should consider all the genres they like and pick one they've never been too involved with. A third person RPG with exp and loot, or a turn-based RPG akin to Divinity: Original Sin but with all the weirdness of an RK developed game. There are so many possibilities.

People on twitter are just going to yell out re-treads of old games....just move on and leave Moon Chronicles for what it is.

BertoFlyingFox commented on First Impressions: Hyrule Warriors Is Zelda, B...:

Well duh. It's a Dynasty Warriors game first, if you dont like that then dont get the game. Literally the most simple concept a consumer can get.

And yet here's an entire article essentially warning people this wont be Twilight Princess2. lol

BertoFlyingFox commented on Review: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship E...:

I'm glad WiiU owners get to play this game, the original was a-mazing for me on Vita. I dont see much of a point in double dipping for this release though, the added bells and whistles arent enough to entice me.

Now if there was asynchronous co-op where we each get our own screen and are allowed to be a bit distanced from each other...that would've had me purchasing this game again. The way it is now, the game is too demanding platform wise for co-op.
