Conocotarious commented on Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Set to Add "Two Fan ...:

@GuyWithTheGames given their decent budget, their pedigree (which news outlets have been making a very big deal of), and the fact that it's one of the first games they've been hired to develop, I'm assuming they're taking this game very seriously since it will be the first big mark on their track record, and will likely influence how long they will last.



Conocotarious commented on Latest Assassin's Creed Announcement Continues...:

As a huge AC fan I'll be moderately disappointed that Ubisoft will be ignoring my favorite system. Especially since it's perfectly capable of handling anything they throw on it and they're simply ignoring it for monetary reasons. I've bought literally every Assassin's Creed game thus far, but I don't make enough money to go out and buy a PS4 to play the newest one.



Conocotarious commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U):

@BlatantlyHeroic if the games were made to the developers liking, I sincerely doubt that they'd have DLC available on the day of release. Games are made to the publishers liking.

Second, you ignored the part of my post where i mention the thigs that are undeniably bad about the game to focus on the few things I would have preferred they did. i.e. recycling a large amount of Arkham City's content, loosening up the combat, Roger Smiths terrible acting (big surprise there), missing content from the Wii U version with only a minuscule price discrepency.

The game may be good, but it's the same good as Arkham City made worse. It's like if Call of Duty's annual sequels used the same exact maps every year instead of new ones but lowered the frame rate a bit too, just to make sure you're absolutely feeling shortchanged.



Conocotarious commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U):

@BlatantlyHeroic I'm not even going to acknowledge that you think Pokemon (or nintendo games in general) deserve less praise because their plots are insignificant.

The point being that Pokemon X and Y as well as the New Super Mario Bros games typically have more refined gameplay without the need to even lean on a story.

Meanwhile Arkham Origins gameplay is mostly recycled from the previous game and relies heavily on its story to draw you in. That's a challenging task when said story manages to be a combination of cliched and over complicated, meanwhile they expect you to care about the villains while a hefty number of them are real bottom of the barrel stuff and the rest are recycled from the previous to games, and we're supposed to be surprised when they show up (OMG Bane and Joker.... AGAIN!)

If the core gameplay were as good as Arkham City, yeah it might deserve at least a 7, but since its a noticeably worse coupled with the fact that you get less features with the Wii U version, I'd say Nintendo Life is being generous.

I'm just going to add, I stopped caring about the Arkham games when they didn't bother to get Ron Perlman for Clayface, and here we are again with no Ron Perlman reprising the roll of Deathstroke. But that's just a minor, personal fan service gripe.



Conocotarious commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U):

Uh oh, Nintendo Life gave a game a score that lines up with the general consensus for the title (even with the fact that the version they played was lacking features), but they give nintendo games, which typically have more time and effort put into them, higher scores. They must be "teh bias"!



Conocotarious commented on "Uninformed" Store Staff Are Hurting Wii U Sal...:

I know exactly what a Wii U is and I pitch it o my customers all the time because its my favorite system.

It's not uninformed salespeople its people telling customers to wait for the PS4. I see it everyday and there's not a thing you can do about it.

Watch the language please. -Lz



Conocotarious commented on Assassin's Creed IV DLC Looks Set to Sail Past...:

If you're basing your buying decisions on whether or not you'll get to spend more money later you're a fool. I'm still buying the game as the Wii U is the only system I plan on buying this generation and whether it not the DLC actually comes to the system is up to Wii U owners who speak with their wallets.

There's nothing stopping Ubisoft from bringing the DLC to the system but whether or not they see it as beneficial to them.
