Ah, a realist, that's cool. Skepticism is good, but it's cool to be optimistic sometimes to. I just don't like it when people, even if they have justifyible opinions, tend to regularly post negative comments just to disrupt current or persistent positivity.

When they not only due that but also reply negatively to many positive posts, that's when it becomes trolling IMO.



brandonbwii commented on Wii U eShop Title Meme Run Seals Approval To R...:

I don't have a problem with a game based around memes personally. Heck it's actually a cute idea in some ways. It's just that THIS game looks unimaginative. A meme focused fighting game or even short RPG could be done well with the right team. It's just that this doesn't appear to be the case.

I don't get you sometimes. At times you offer good points, at others you come across as a bit of a troll. Rayman Legends has a the best attach rate on Wii U. Before you bash me, and say how the attach rate doesn't mean much, note that not many people bought Wii U in the first place so it's not a 1st party/3rd party thing that many would suggest.

As for UCraft, I think it's best he goes multiplatform. I still think the bulk of sales will come from Wii U, but he will likely make revenue off other consoles as well simply because it has the word "craft" in the title.

Will people stop it with the quality control BS? Nintendo's old quality control methods meant we got less games not better games. Or do you want Nintendo to be like early Sony? No 2D games unless you are a popular brand kinda control?



brandonbwii commented on Wii U eShop Title Meme Run Seals Approval To R...:

It's not that I just don't like the game, I don't like Shultz. Despite being a verified user on Miiverse, he constantly trolls those who bought I.Q. Test. Instead of listening to feedback or taking all insults in stride, he simply deletes most comments to make room for the few positive newer ones.

Heck, Eli of The Letter fame deserves more respect than this douche.



brandonbwii commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

What I THINK, does not mean it's fact. It has all the features of other platforms and the jury's still out on how it runs. Don't knock it just because the publisher has made iffy decisions. People with this line of thought is the reason even great 3rd party games don't sell well on Nintendo platforms.



brandonbwii commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

B- right now. A+ if next year lives up to it's promises.

Also I think too many people downplay how awesome eshop is, or all digital shops for that matter. Are huge first party AAA games all people care about on a Nintendo system?

While there has been an abundance of the same genre for a while things are starting to mix up. This year alone you have Mario Kart 8 and three high quality brawlers (Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros.). Going into 2015 you have Devil's Third, Splatoon, and Xenoblade Chronicles X. The stigma of being a game only for platformers is slowly going away.



brandonbwii commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

I payed the same questionable price for Little Inferno. It was short but well worth the money. The only thing that turns me off is the lack of pointer controls. Everything else negative in the review sounded nitpicky.

I'm low on funds at the moment as there's so much out there to buy, and this is coming from a Wii U only user.



brandonbwii commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

The main thing I give Ubisoft flak for is shooting themselves in the foot three times. I highly doubt delaying Rayman Legends gave them more sales, they denied that Zombii U was ever getting patched, which I imagine caused interest to wane even further, and most recently they denied that Watch Dogs was getting DLC.

I know making game sales on Nintendo platforms can be a crapshoot sometimes but what did they have to gain by saying a feature won't be present when it will?



brandonbwii commented on Review: Bionic Commando: Elite Forces (3DS eSh...:

I agree, this game felt a bit unpolished back when I played and even had gamebreaking bugs when played on GBA. NST had always been a very mid-tier developer and this was a shining example of that. Rearmed or even the GB version already on VC is better IMO.



brandonbwii commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

Since I'm not that good at Smash with ANY character, Mac has been my go to guy simply because he FEELS powerful. That makes him satisfying to use even if I still lose a lot.

Also since I have yet to master smash attacks, he does a great job of knocking people out of the ring without have to focus on the whole "forward A" thing that I tend to do with many other fighters. Perfect for this noob.



brandonbwii commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

On a positive note based on comments from Hulbreach Studios, UCraft will continue development. I believe Kickstarter was just for polish. That's what it sounded like on the kickstarter page anyway.

Also what's so wrong with "Give us your hearts" as a company slogan? Nobody would badmouth that if Nintendo used it.



brandonbwii commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I'd love that but people on both NintendoLife AND Miiverse have acted pretty hostile both to the game and it's developer. Considering this was basically a game for the "fans", I'm not surprised one bit that this game didn't make it.

I wouldn't make a game like that either for these ungrateful communities.



brandonbwii commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I hate the fact that Impact Winter didn't make it. There just aren't enough games, especially on console, with that sort of survival gameplay. I shouldn't complain too much, as I've been too busy buying games lately as opposed to funding them. I'm part of the problem unfortunately. :(



brandonbwii commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

The Wii U is doing a good job of creating it's own niche with games that are in many ways different from everything else out there. I'd love to have the latest CoD on Wii U, but instead we get promising looking exclusives like Devil's Third and Splatoon.

So it looks like Nintendo will ALWAYS be that supplementary console, which beats the arms race it's high-end competition in many ways. As long as Nintendo continues to find success and creates great games I'm happy with their left-field decisions.

I'd hate for there to be a world without Nintendo's attention to polished game designed at it's basic and purest form.



brandonbwii commented on Video: Take a Closer Look at the Awesome GameP...:

Wow! Only ten months, eh? That is VERY impressive for what might be THE best indie game on the eshop. I had unrealistically high hopes for this game anyway and it surpassed every one of them.

My sole complaint is that the controls, most noticably the hit detection, feels a little off at times. This is especially true with certain community levels that have been designed for pixel perfect precision. It at times puts this game on the wrong side of trial and error. Other than that somewhat minor nitpick this is one of Wii U's best games. Keep up the good work guys!



brandonbwii commented on Interview: Still Games Discusses Kickstarting ...:

I can see why people call it a rip off of Hyper Light Drifter, but is that such a bad thing? Also I like the cut of this developer's jib, her answers were more profound, interesting, and straightforward compared to some interviews I've seen.



brandonbwii commented on Nexis Games Launches Kickstarter For Minecraft...:

Why is everyone being so hard on this one man team? The impression I get of the kickstarter is to release the game in a more timely manner. Many have been begging for a Minecraft of sorts on Wii U. There's nothing shady about this. Yes there are countless Minecraft clones out there, but none on Wii U.

And to think no one complained to Vblank for making an 8-bit GTA clone nor to whoever made that Trials rip-off on 3DS.



brandonbwii commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

I think by all means games like Binding of Isaac should be there. I wouldn't play it but I'm all for freedom of expression. I'd also like more games to release that can have interracial and even homosexual themes (as long as they are fun and don't hit your head over them too much).

Too many indie games I've played have had capitalizim over/undertones so a change of pace and more variety would be good for the industry as an art form.



brandonbwii commented on Slender: The Arrival Is Stalking Its Way To Th...:

I'd be interested in this if it weren't for the rumblings I here of the PS3 version being an absolutely crappy port. It's hard to be optimistic considering the Wii U technology is even more alien to most developers. They clearly need to take their time on those platforms, especially Wii U.



brandonbwii commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Takes Sharing Expe...:

I love drawing apps like Colors 3D and Comic Workshop. The number of options to help get the creative juices flowing is phenomenal!. I just wonder how Nintendo can filter all the dirty ones. It seems like some notsokidfriendly images will make it to the server. I believe this is the reason we don't have Flipnote 3D yet. :(



brandonbwii commented on Link amiibo Compatibility Confirmed for Hyrule...:

I imagine it's functionality will be very similar to Smash. Probably simple leveling and statistic saves. It will be cool if you can also use it as a customizable A.I. sidekick. I already plan on getting Mario, Link, and Villiger first both because of my love of those franchises and potential Mario Kart DLC compatibility. You never know with Nintendo.

After that when I have the money I'll probably buy more Mario based figurines for obvious reasons.



brandonbwii commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

If basic model users are in fact buying off eshop they either have a hard drive or are buying games like Spikey Walls and other cheap, more casual diversions. OddWorld is more for the Shovel Knight owning crowd that has an insatiable appitite for quality.



brandonbwii commented on Video: Curve Studios Shows Off Some Stealth In...:

Now that Shovel Knight has been out, this has been my most anticipated download this year. Actually one of my most anticipated games period, and I don't even have any prior knowledge about the franchise. The talk of stealth, gadgets and Wii U specific features have had me excited since the beginning. Positive reviews of the previous game doesn't hurt either.



brandonbwii commented on Video: Début Footage of UCraft Aims to Show M...:

You talk about Bayonetta like it's shovelware as opposed to your own personal opinion. In fact I'm quite upset with this entire comment section. I mean, it's like everyone either hates Minecraft in general or hates the idea of a clone.

Where's the love? Hell, where's the voice of reason or integrity in this entire section? I'm looking forward to some crafing love on Nintendo consoles personally and with plans for future expansions already in place, I hope this game has enough to standout.



brandonbwii commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

Toad Tracker is likely to come out in next year in NA. This is unfortunate as I was hoping Nintendo would have a more diverse holiday lineup than just brawlers. GOOD brawlers but brawlers nonetheless. :(

When it comes to 3rd party I'm extremely excited for Stealth INC. 2, In addition to looking like a badass stealth/puzzle game in it's own right it's got Metroidvania gameplay, seamless Miiverse integration, asymetrical coop, and a level editor. If it delivers on polish and promise I might just weep tears of joy.
