The Wonderful 101 is a gem that should have sold much better. All hail Platinum Games!

Some of the best games of the last generation are theirs and one of the new one, yes, The Wonderful 101 is among the best games on One, ps4 and WiiU.

Can't wait to play Bayonetta 2 _



DarkCoolEdge commented on Review: Mario Power Tennis (Wii U eShop / Game...:

@Yosher I really don't like 3DS and GC Mario Tennis because their gameplay is horrrible. I like much more the tennis in the GBA game, it is a lot closer to the real game than on the others. Those boring and incredibly repetitive supershots and neverending points... ugh.

Plus, I miss the rpg component. It was neat.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

No they won't. The game looks old and mediocre (I'm not saying it is, just how it LOOKS) and won't have a big marketing push so... no, it won't sell much and it certainly won't be a system seller.

Just look at The Wonderful 101 or even the amazing Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Armillo Release Date and Launch Discount Detai...:

@Samurairu actually that's not a problem for me. Lately I've been enjoying more playing shorter (but good) games. I still play games that will take many hours but usually they are non-absorbent games like DK: Tropical Freeze, I can play one or two stages and be done, unlike Deus Ex/Wind Waker/SC: Blacklist which you have to play for a while in order to advance.

In fact, I'm really looking forward to Tengami :)

My problem with Armillo is that it doesn't seem fun to me :(

@electrolite77 the momentum might not get to 2015 although I hope it does.
I don't want to sound like a hater or just too negative but after years of watching this industry I don't consider those signs of recovery that important.
And lets not forget that Far Cry 4, AC Unity, FIFA 15, Rainbow Six Seige, The Division, The Crew, The Witcher 3, Arkham Knight, GTA V, MGS V and many others aren't coming to WiiU. That is a HUGE handicap which I'm afraid Nintendo won't be able to overcome.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Successfully Wooed Som...:

Sadly I now am sure that it'll struggle. Not only has its biggest seller, Mario Kart, moved less systems than needed but they haven't show any game that will shift the focus to the console.

I love what they have shown and probably buy all or most of the games but they are not system sellers. Does anybody believe that Captain Toad is that kind of game? Or Yoshi? We know (sadly and unfarely) Bayonetta and Xenoblade aren't. And Smash? It is great, it is shaping up wonderful BUT the 3DS is getting it too and the GC also had a a great one...

Right now WiiU's only hopes are:

  • A price drop that ain't happening
  • A system defining game we haven't seen yet
  • The new Zelda really kicks a**.

Meanwhile I'll just enjoy all the great games it has on offer.



DarkCoolEdge commented on First Impressions: Solving the Puzzle of Capta...:

The game looks great. I enjoyed Toad's Super Mario 3D World levels a lot despite them being quite easy. I'm certainly going to get this one. Mini-carts! Trains! BOSSES!
Well done Nintendo. It doesn't sound like a heavy hitter but it surely will be very fun.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

I don't think Nintendo did that great and I'm really surprised about Splatoon's reception. That doesn't mean that Sony or MS did a better job. Non-gameplay videos are junk although effective to fool most gamers and shooters-shooters-shooters is getting tired.

I'll stick with my PC and my U.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's GamePad Bet Could Pa...:

For me it already has paid off. Just the off-tv alone makes it worthy. If you add the use it gets on Zombi U, Splinter Cell, Wind Waker... it only gets better.

The only two problems with it are its battery life and the toll it takes on the system resources. Imagine what they could be achieving if the console had more ram available.



DarkCoolEdge commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

I want Metroid, a couple of big new IPs, Zelda U, Majora's Mask 3D and some little even downloadable games (new Ice Climbers and the like).

A new F-Zero would be nice but I don't think it's gonna happen.
