DESS-M-8 commented on Feature: Batman Vs. Superman In The Battle Of ...:

An invincible and all powerful man as a superhero is pointless as it takes some explaining and creative imagination to invent a reason why him doing anything would be difficult for him.
Whereas a flawed and vulnerable character with no super powers has much scope for storyline.
Hence translating to a videogame, batman makes for a more viable protagonist for a gamer.

DESS-M-8 commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

4/10 is way too generous for this steaming pile of useless garbage. The only pitfall of digital download is I bought this from eshop and after 15 minutes i realised it was an utter waste of money that would have been better spent on pokemon this week.
This in no way resembles a sonic game. Alarms bells should have rang when a full franchise reboot was not being headed by sonic team. If a rebrand and relaunch of mario was announced but it was to be carried out by an unheard of company and not nintendo, it would've been panned before it began.
Why were sonic team not involved? What are they doing that was so important that meant THIS was allowed to happen tonl sonic. Sega are finished. Somebody should buyout sega and save those legendary franchises from what's sadly become one of the worst developers currently in existence.

@Crillan being a 'point' doesn't make it impervious to being pointless.

But you're saying you're about 40? And a full time software engineer? And bought ALL the skylanders? And had the time to play this game and level up those hundreds of figures? You're either questionable or actually a child trying to One-up my comment hahaha.

But seriously, they are pointless and they have missed a real opportunity with them. Despite that, there will still be some in our house. Just disappointed they weren't realised as well as they could have been.

This is just sad.
It had so much promise. I'd bought the comic for my son, watched for when the TV snowstorms on cartoon network then finally downloaded the wii u game last week and.......... It is utter garbage.
Just sloppy lazy unfinished garbage.
This is a worse turnout even more so than aliens colonial marines. What hell is going on at sega????
If they don't release updates to FIX everything wrong with this game and fast, then sonic Boom will be the LAST sega game I ever buy.

@Crillan Congratulations on your condescending tone. Especially when it's you who've missed the point. I understand exactly everything they offer, im a 32 year old electronic engineer who has played nintendo since 1989. The concept of a toy connected with video games is surprisingly not beyond my grasp.
What these toys are offering from day one is limited, periphery and pathetic.
They need to bring something with way more substance and purpose to warrant their existence within the format and the £100,s it will cost to satiate the desire to collect them all.
Cause right now, they're technically offering nothing like that.

DESS-M-8 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

I still can't believe they didn't just rerelease a wii u pro controller. A bluetooth wavebird with pro controller functionality like the home. - + buttons ad feedback and revise the right stick and call it the wavepro controller or wavebird u controller.
THAT would have been a far better option

DESS-M-8 commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

Downloaded this and it is a stunning game. Short isn't last, it is pace. Does it take around an hour to finish? I remember paying that fir sonic the hedgehog 2 and 3 and they lasted that long but cost over £40 each. Was worth every penny at the time. This costs £7. Where's the argument?
It's absolutely amazing to see some of the original Rareware staff developing back on Nintendo format.

DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

@Crillan the point is that they're pointless? They need to offer something more than skylanders and it needs to be in addition to the main game. Unlocking money and hats is ridiculous and a waste.
A Nintendo avatar that could game jump would be miles better and offer way more

@Ralek85 a real super mariokart style battle arena is what this game is missing and would be amazing online. One of the most legendary and iconic multiplayer games in history is super mariokart battle mode. Its a serious misfire that it isn't in mariokart 8

DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

These amiibo figures are getting worse and worse. They should act as a key code where their data is cloud based tied to your nintendo network ID so no need for built in memory.
They should have game jumping facility to actually take your personalised character into any game, not just "unlock a scarf" that is pathetic, worthless and pointless.
Amiibo has been designed poorly. Though to be fair skylanders is even worse. Buy a game, then buy figures from us to unlock characters you already have in the game we've already sold you. The figures are pointless apart from to steal money from grabby kids. The whole skylander dynamic borders on the same immorality as 3000% APR pay day loans

DESS-M-8 commented on "The Sky Is The Limit" For amiibo, As Nintendo...:

@ryanator008 yes, I have played it and it is the most over-rated game ever made in history with the mout boring, and non-descript central character ever created in gaming history, it's hard to get invested in a storyline which is basically about a storm trooper. It's unoriginal with nearly everything being ripped off from one Sci fi film or another, it's one of the only franchises in gaming history where the developer publicly apologised for how crap it was (see halo 3). And if bland, non descript, reptitive same old same old Sci fi first person shooter is a a genre then yes it is top in its genre as that is a very niche genre populated by only halo and second place destiny....... Wait a minute, wasn't destiny made by........
If you class halos genre as a first person genre then I can name dozens that reign far supreme before you even glance at anything made by bungie.

@SanderEvers I actually know a lot about programming and you seem to know a lot about abruptness and ignorance. The games would be programmed as compatible games with the amiibo figure also installing a comprehensive update to add that characters data to the game. The game file size as example at 8gb with each amiibo bringing with it a 135mb update addimg the code needed for that player for that game. Not just am unlock activation like skylanders. It is all very easily possible.

DESS-M-8 commented on "The Sky Is The Limit" For amiibo, As Nintendo...:

An amiibo just providing some extra consumable like some in game currency or a hat is utterly pathetic and a waste of time. Each figure should come with its own downloadable update that is retained in your wii u and 3ds that activates every time the NFC registers the attached figure. That character should then be available to play as in all compatible nintendo games and potentially third party games. To make that character that you have built available as a playable character would be amazing and give more longevity and variety to the games and more purpose tobyour amiibo as your virtual gaming avatar/friend.
Basically enabling wreck it Ralph style game jumping. The character you "beam" into an alien game, finds that game a strange world, adjusts and adapts to the mechanics of that game and builds further on their stats and abilities as you use them.
THAT would be an amiibo

YES!!!!!
Then port wild gunman, operation wolf, Virtua cop 2, aliens arcade, and house of the dead!
Bring back home light gun games in HD!!! :-D
A decent version of the appalling rambo game on ps3 would be worth a try too.

DESS-M-8 commented on Preview: Using amiibo with Super Smash Bros. f...:

I sincerely hope there is some huge announcement nintendo have managed to keep secret regarding amiibo that will make them a killer app, such as game jumping.
If they've revealed pretty much all there is that they will do already? They are crap and and utter mis-fire in what could have been a huge sale for them and a push into the main stream market again. Something that could have brought in a new generation of gamers aswell as hit the nostalgia button for nintendo fans.

Also totally agree that figures such as fox, link and samus with their minimal contact point with the base are ridiculous and poor design. They will break, and fast. Anybody whose a kid or has kids knows how skylander figures get treated. Too many of these Amiibo's will break and in record time.

DESS-M-8 commented on Shovel Knight is Getting a Cross-Buy Discount ...:

@Sadodi "do you even English Bro?"

Wow, just wow. Words cannot answer such use of English.

I think you need to develop your grasp of English before attacking anyone.

"cross" link between, traverse something.
"buy" purchase to gain ownership.
"discount" purchase at a reduced rate.

Singularly these words bear a meaning, construct something mystical known as a sentence you then can use words for all sorts of things. Just cause you've taken how two words have been used on a Sony system and then rationalised that this should apply to global commerce seems quite an unrealistic leap logically, especially when basic writing skills escape you.

If you seriously cannot read my previous message and see logic over blind demand for free games then nevermind and leave it at that.

Thank you for your time and mild entertainment from reading your posts.

Genuinely.

DESS-M-8 commented on Shovel Knight is Getting a Cross-Buy Discount ...:

@Sadodi that might be why it says cross buy discount and not outright cross buy.
Either way 33% is not enough.
That's true in today's market but in my day, you wanted it twice? You bought it twice they've had the development cost to incur for two platforms, why shouldn't they charge twice.

You're a decorator, a customer wants their front room wallpapering, customer 2 wants their dining room wallpapering with the same paper.
Customer 1 and 2 both live in the same house. Would you only charge for wallpapering 1 room?

Anyone is an idiot to expect something for free. Sony do this at a loss as they can afford to due to their userbase. You start demanding this of an indie developer? You're killing them off before they have a chance and negating the entire point of independent development.

Nobody needs take offence at the use of the word idiot as it is a general comment and fact directed at nobody in particular. We have all come to expect this, but it is wrong.

DESS-M-8 commented on Preview: Using amiibo with Super Smash Bros. f...:

These are careering at light speed into the realm of utter pointlessness. They need some purpose to you wanting them for a game!
The fact the character is there already negates you needing the figure, it just being there for background is pointless.
This needs fixing fast or it'll die after xmas.
Maybe make all figures able to enter any compatible game. Take your mario into hyrule warriors. Basically like game jumping in wreck it Ralph.
THAT would be a better idea.
Each game has its staple characters as part of the software. YOUR Amiibo is then your chosen avatar(s) to leap into the nintendo world. THAT would add longevity.
Kirby would then rack up accomplishments for games he's completed and items collected and son on. Almost revisiting the promise of N64 DD like taking your Arwings into a city you'd built in Simcity.

DESS-M-8 commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

This games amazing and deserves to sell. It should sell consoles nevermind itself.
Nintendo are ridiculous and they're own worst enemy. They have NO idea about marketing. I've not seen one advert for bayonetta and little of mariokart 8. Zero of hyrule warriors. Bit I've seen adverts for the evil within probably over twenty times in the last fortnight.
Outsource your marketing NOW nintendo. Your team are silly

People who rage quit should have their console destroyed and banned from all gaming as they clearly shouldn't be playing gam. Theyre pathetic.
Equally so people who insist on still using autoblock in street fighter iv even they've been playing it for ages and have raised they're rating over 10,000. It should become unelectable once you hit 1000 as you shouldn't neeed it then

DESS-M-8 commented on Former President Of Silicon Knights Announces ...:

Denis dyack has sullied his now mis-spelled name too far. It carries instant disrespect and no credibility. Which is a shame as it was his name that brought us legacy of kain, eternal darkness and the best version of the best metal gear game ever made.
Dennis dyack to one side, Nintendo NEED the bring us Eternal Darkness 2. Maybe even outsourced to QE2 with Nintendo running production and direction. A game on a par with the evil within for content but with the brilliance and originality of eternal darkness is something the Wii U could definitely use, and as an exclusive would be even better. Third parties are lacking, but when nintendo hold franchises that are as good, if not better that other consoles third party offerings, why leave them moth-balled????

2015 e3 I want nintendo to announce "the year of hardcore" with announcements in the line of
"starting with Zelda Wii U the proceeding 12 month period we will be bringing Eternal Darkness 2, F-zero Project, 1080*, hardcore shooter developed with treasure exclusively, monster hunter 4, new project IP from retro studios,and a few more "

DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

A price move isn't needed. More included in the box would be a better move. Or starting to bundle with a 1TB HDD for the same price or even look to increase premiums to 250-500gb with no price increase. Hit the bundles, not the price cut. TELL people they are only console still to offer online gaming without having to fork out an additional £40 for Xmas morning, plus every subsequent year there after.
You get way more for your money straight out of the box of a wii u than people realise. They need to hold the price point but now up the SSD in the wii u as 250/500gb is substantially cheaper now than it was 2 years ago.
£279.99 for a premium wii u with 500Gb SSD, mariokart, bayonetta 2 (or £80 eshop credit to spend how you want Xmas morning)? Sold, and I already have a wii u.
