@Grumblevolcano no. You're completely wrong.
Duck hunt - nes - nes zapper
Duck hunt - virtual console - wiimote.

Do you see what they did there? And how it might be massively relevant to the very point that hundreds are complaining about and the very point you've totally missed and deem as pointless?????

DESS-M-8 commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

@BLPs if I was a game programmer wanting to charge consumers £9-£18 for the same game again on new hardware, I would expect to put a bit of work in to make it fit properly. Especially considering the whole selling point of wii u is off tv play, I would think one of the minor jobs on my list would be to make the buttons on said gamepad work with game I was trying to sell. Especially when the mapping would be coded from "shake" to "press y". Hardly like writing a new graphic engine is it.

I'd like to see the games integrated into the wii u properly. Offscreen play??? I have to set my wii u to gamepad screen only and STILL use a wii remote to play donkey kong returns???? They need to implement being able to actually use the gamepad to play the game otherwise it's only half a solution. It solves very little of the inconvenience of the wii mode.

This is an opportune moment to tie everything account based to one central ID that covers all your hardware and software and be wholey owned by the consumer. A grand reset of their online sales strategy to let the consumer, not the hardware, actually own the software, to reward repeat customers and brand loyalty and provide incentives for repeat sales and promotion.

@NoNameAtAll I had both, I'm not saying there weren't decent games on the playstation. The original metal gear solid is in my personal top ten of all time.
I'm saying the N64 was an absolute treasure trove on industry changing exclusive software and a far greater console. The extent and volume of the library has nothing to do with it. Cause for every good game on playstation there were twenty utterly appalling piles of trash

@GamerJunkie 50 "good" games on playstation????
5 "good" games on N64??? Oh you poor poor boy.
No and no. There were more than 5 industry changing games on N64 nevermind good games. If your bag was rpg's then yeah the playstation was a better choice software wise, but the playstation was an awful console. Slow, cheap and wasn't it on like version 9 before even the PsOne came out????
But if you actually preferred rpg's in the 90's you would've been playing PC over anything else anyway?

What's even more amazing is that this game looked like a standard definition version of that on N64 nearly fifteen years ago!!!!! Released at the same time of gaming when playstation gamers were being "blown away" by the "jaw dropping" visuals of final fantasy viii. Utter joke how well the playstation was regarded over the N64 by the general public. Ludites played playstation. People who knew about games played N64. Truly one of the greatest consoles ever made with probably the highest number of exclusive AAA title of any format in history

DESS-M-8 commented on Retro Studios Launches Twitter Account And Set...:

Definitely a wii u title and not 3ds. Releasing metroid Prime trilogy on eshop maybe to remind people of the franchise leading upto a release of new metroid game?
The twitter chatter would lean more toward Luigis mansion 3 for wii u with an October release though

@electrolite77 they will definitely keep separate hardware but I think it will definitely launch 2016/2017.
Wii u keeps a profit rolling for nitendo which is good, but I think their development re shuffle and then release schedule just cries "our teams are clearly busy on something you will not see in the next two years." if nothing else the wii u just doesn't have the legs to carry it another 3 years. If we see a new hardwarw in 2016, a four year lifespan is pretty good going for it

I think they will launch a new handheld and hone console within 12 months of each other, if not closer. They will most definitely have software developed on the same framework to make compatibility 100% and realise what they originally wanted to achieve with smash.
The hardware should resurrect the gameboy brand and the console should definitely drop the wii monicker for something more forward thinking and ditch the negative reactions the come with that name.
They needn't go for top end power, but if we're talking two years from now it'd need a 3.5 ghz processor minimum, 16gb gddr ram to ensure it didn't fall too fr behind the inevitably more powerful ps5 when that drops half way through the nintendo 8 lifecycle. They need to open up digital licence policies to the consumer to ensure confidence in continued software investment.
They need to MARKET AGGRESSIVELY.
They need to work with third parties more.
They need to flood the Virtual console, not drip feed rereleqse of the wii virtual console.
They needed develop true nintendo first party titles.
SMBwiiU, 3D world, captain toad, Pikmin 3, yoshi woolly world are not nintendos top draw. They need to pitch high and hit big to get positive reaction. Their first party titles need to turn the heads of new customers aswell as make nintendo fans think "oooooooo that looks good"
They basically need to listen and learn from wii u And get nintendo 8 perfect

It is idiot sad losers like this that make online gaming boring. Followed closely by people who quit out before the end of a game. Thank god nintendo saw fit to punish people like this.
Third worst gamer is those who insist on using autoguard in beat em ups even when they know how to play the game, most of all street fighter iv 3D.

They need to work HARD on Nintendo 7.
Release Nintendo 7 in November 2016 and they will remain the most powerful and most up to date console for 4-6 years.
Fix EVERYTHING they have screwed with Wii U.
DROP the "Wii" name after this generation. The name alone is enough to put hardcore gamers off. The SNES, the 64, the Gamecube all hard hardcore gamer elements to their libraries and userbase. The "Wii" has been tarred with the gimmick games for kids brush and that will stick forever no matter what anybody else says.
they need to hit nintendo 7 hard and be aggressive from its launch build up and beyond just like the SNES days.
Nintendo is the video game king and it needs to realise that, start acting like it and start getting things right again.

DESS-M-8 commented on Platinum Hopes to Bring "More From Bayonetta" ...:

I'd like to see them change the lead character to something that looks cool. She looks like a librarian, sounds like storm from the xmen cartoons and generally looks appalling as a less character. Lara croft she is not.
It was the look of the character that swayed m away from its original release on ps3. I've only dipped into both now after playing metal gear revengeance and seeing what platinum can do.
And the music is disgusting. Devil may cry soundtrack was far more fitting for a game of this genre. The soundtrack to this game sounds more like every gay piece of music sega ever pushed into its arcade machines, all forces into one game. Dance music has no place in the music industry, never mind video games.
I'd still rate this game over 90% because the GAME is stunning. The soundtrack and character just take the shine off it. They are also both the same things that people mention when they see it running when I play it or after I've recommended it.
Flash some stuff when she "climaxes" may sound appealing and hilarious, but it does not detract from the general unappealing look of the character as a whole. For some people it will. The shallow people and teens.

DESS-M-8 commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

I think what they missed and thought the need to add next time is an ACTUAL market campaign so that people know the thing is even coming out AND what to expect from it.

Seriously though.
They should go for graphics and high power for Nintendo 7.
They should retain the gamepad.
They should open the NNID and allow multiple consoles per account and ensure all your wii u library can be accessed on your nintendo 7.
The New 3DS should be a fully functioning controller for it.
It should launch with must have games and have a steady flow of titles through its first 24 months, namely:
Eternal darkness sequel to a high spec with original as additiknal content.
F-zero.
Zelda.
Proper mario.
1080
Wave race
Luigis mansion 3.
Co developed/published third party line up and ensure long running big hits such as fifa, Madden, battlefield, street fighter etc are all present and correct.
Have a much heavier and beefier virtual console release stream. Incorporating n64, gamecube, wii, mega drive, Saturn, dreamiest formats.
Basically just quality from day one and really shout it in everyone's faces about what they will be missing if they don't buy one.

Xboxone is almost been and gone with minimal interest and ps4 is putting forward nothing interesting. Nintendo have a golden window to bring new hardware within next 12 months as it will be at least another 6 years for next ps/Xbox.

Rebuying isn't a real issue as hardly anybody has bought a wii u, I'd imagine the majority of the install base would reinvest if it was backward compatible and there was an option to just buy the console unit if preferred and your account and peripherals all were compatible

If they launched new hardware for Xmas 2015-2016 latest and it authorised Duplication of all previous wii u purchases across to it as long as they remained tied to same NNID account I would buy day one upto £400 easy

DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@noctowl you canvote mariokart 8 or you can have an opinion. Super mariokart was the ONLY mariokart that had competivness of a a hardcore racing nature that came dow n to milliseconds. Even at a local level. I couldbt even tell you what records were on whatever tracks for successor levels. But I could tell you target laps and record laps for all super mariokart tracks

DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@WiiUSucks the poll is relevant to contemprary placement and localisation of people voting. If you asked people who have played video games for thirty years there is no way super mariokart would have been thrown away as a bottom ranking place. That was the only mariokart that achieved console selling status.

DESS-M-8 commented on Capcom Has Now Sold 1.2 Million Copies of Supe...:

@Angelic_Lapras_King they didn't pay for its development, they paid for an exclusivity period. Like Xbox did with splinter cell and like ps2 did with metal gear solid 2. It is exclusive to ps4 within console market as I'll be picking it up day one on my alienware laptop ;-) but will double dip if they bring it to nintendo when the exclusivity expires.

DESS-M-8 commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:

Sega need to sack EVERYONE and find a big reset button that gets all their divisions and staff back from the 90's, like the real sonic team and AM2. The sega that developed panzer dragoon zwei, sega rally '95, Virtua Fighter 5, super monkey ball, ristar, NiGHTS into dreams, panzer dragoon saga, story of thor, streets of rage 2, sonic & knuckles, F-zero gx! How can a company that developed that list and more not have even an ounce of talent left or even the inclination on how to release a game that is 100% finished, let alone any good!!??

DESS-M-8 commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:

Wouldn't it be an even better idea to turn these games into games first??????
There hasn't been a decent shinobi since shinobi III, or a decent streets of rage since streets of rage 2. Both in the 90's!!!!!!!!!!
Sega are idiots
