DrSlump commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@Pod What i hate, furthermore, is to see on my screen, every time i access the title, the new icons about characters and courses that i don't own... and does not even exist!
I'm really disappointed about Nintendo's approach, now seems to play a gameloft game, where every icon brings you to a potential money loss..
And, by the way, the didn't fix the micro lags during gameplay...



DrSlump commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

Well done dlc's can be accepted and welcome. Bad dlc's done for marketing like mercedes cars will ruin the original game concept introducing "out of topic" cars and a lot of marketing. This is not the Mario Kart i want.
Unfortunately, even if i don't donwload the mercedes content, i will be forced to see it during online play becouse of other peoples using them.
I hope Nintendo will not choose to produce next MK brand racing games in the gameloft way



DrSlump commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

I don't like it too. It's free, but i don't want a mercedes car in MK8 game
I will not download this dlc but, for sure, i'll have to see this car a lot during online gameplay (90% of time..) :(
A mercedes in mk8 is like onion in my choccolate



DrSlump commented on Nintendo Reveals 'Mario Kart TV' Web App in Fi...:

Webapp?? It's a wrong way, according to me. A dedicated app (for ios or android) would be much more visible than a web app that needs to be reached via a web browser. They should make their mktv more visible to smartphone users and make it a viral app so that the users wants to buy and play mk8... and so a wii u.



DrSlump commented on Review: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Wii U):

I'm playing this game. According to me this game does not deserve an 8/10 score, mainly becouse of technical issues. Framerate is really low, making it impossible to play. Let's keep the first minutes of gameplay, when you must find the assassin: when you must try tu catch him running here and there, commands are unresponsive and there is a really noticeable lag.
My vote? 5.5/10.



DrSlump commented on Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Wii U):

I'm comparing graphics between wii u version and pc version: wii u version has far more aliasing, even setting pc resolution to 720p. At wich resolution is rendered this game on wii u?



DrSlump commented on Review: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Wii U):

I'm still playing the third episode on my wii u.. the framerate is really low, and this makes it difficult to control the main caracter.
I will not buy this title for wii u.. maybe i will get it for my pc or a next gen console, if i'll buy it.



DrSlump commented on Review: Gradius (Wii U eShop / NES):

I played the c64 version of this game and the arcade version as well. Do i wish to pay to obtain a copy on my wii u? I don't think so, this game is really old and 0.3€ symbolic fee is more than adeguate for it.



DrSlump commented on Shin'en: If Developers Can't Make Great Lookin...:

@Pachterkid Hi, i've played lego city and i've nevere experienced a freeze. Nevere seen a freze with zombi u, pikmin 3, rayman and all other games.
In the other hand i must admit that i've exchanged my console becouse a defective (noisy) fan, and that unit did freeze more than one time.
May your freezes be an hardware freeze?



DrSlump commented on Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U Version's Perfor...:

Wii U is racing to be the worst nintendo console : Gamecube didn't sell very well, but had a really good hardware compared to the competitors. Wii U doesn't sell.. does not have a competitive hardware (it far under powered compared to the incoming console) and has a bad third party support.
Will it last 5 years?



DrSlump commented on Platinum: Wii U GamePad Allows Us To Take Bayo...:

Does the hairs cut was done due to a lack of power in wii u cpu? The first bayoneta title had a lot of hairs to calculate in the scene that means a lot of rag-doll style calculations.
In the demo shown at e3 i've noticed that hairs does not move at all..



DrSlump commented on Nintendo Reveal Why Its 3D Mario Title Isn't S...:

They're deserving one of the best shots for the next year, when competition will be really hot versus play4 and xbox1. I expect a big mario title next year.
The amazing or disturbing point of view of this event is that, according to me, every single game presented is worth of my money!
That's the difference between nintendo and competitors: every single game is always well packed.



DrSlump commented on Poll: Wii U Hardware Revisions and Accessories...:

@Hysterical I use ni-mh batteries, wich are cheap, durable and easy to replace. A 2400mAH battery kit can last a week at least. I have really no need of a rechargable remote control, i would have to stop playing and put it on recharge instead of simply exchange the batteries.



DrSlump commented on CryEngine 3 "Runs Beautifully" on Wii U:

@Nico07: Yes you're right, sorry. I own my Wii U since december, and i must say that it's not bad at all. It's small, stylish and the pad is a good idea. What i've personaly changed technically are joust the ram amount, 4GB instead of 2 and the clocks: 2,2Ghz for the CPU and 800Mhz for the GPU. According to me these values are the best compromise between price and performances.
The final price of the wii u would be raised by 20$ becouse of the better die quality needed, the cost of ram and slight better heat sink.



DrSlump commented on Shin'en Multimedia Defends The Wii U Hardware:

It would be better if nintendo engineers included 4GB ram instead 2 and a bit faster clocks, not too much, let's say 2.5Ghz for cpu and 800Mhz for Gpu, a better compromise, for sure. The final price would be about 20$ more per unit, but it would be worth of it.
