dumedum commented on Shovel Knight is Coming to Retail:

No Vita version. 3Ds handheld exclusive retail :) Even though I bought it for both Wii U and 3DS I am tempted to buy it again. Love the Nintendo exclusive news announcement.



dumedum commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

Third parties don't matter. You can't trust them and they're irrelevant. Nintendo should see how they're making another Wii like success. Then third party exclusives will come but multiplatform not gonna happen. Better ignore them.

The Wii U was just the console for me. Great innovation with the Game Pad which allowed some amazing games, BC with all my Wii remotes, beautiful HD games... It really is the perfect console. Would be a shame to see it end and hoping NX can be just as good. Best gaming experiences were ones that took advantage of the Wii remote and then the GamePad. Even the GameCube controller is awesome and fun. Every controller is unique and brings something. I wonder what's next.

It will be a huge shame if they drop the second screen for the next console. The GamePad adds so much to gaming, and I had so some of my best gaming experiences enjoying the awesomeness of the GamePad features in games like ZombiU, Arkham City, Mass Effect 3, Lego City, Deux Ex, Windwaker and so on. Not to mention some great indies. Playing on gamepad with some TV action and switching to TV anytime you want is huge, hard to go back now after this revolution.



dumedum commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

@RantingThespian what's the difference between the 1993 tech and today's tech? Have you been to places like Disney Quest? They have lots of VR there and it's working. A magic carpet, a swordfighting game. It feel like it's all been done a thousands times now. What exactly are they working on? The resolution will still not be HD as I understand, so what else are they actually doing? It's like they keep experimenting it forever, and just ends up being nothing all the time. If it was ready, it would be instead of controllers and everything, it will be the platform itself.

@Effinae not at all.

Reggie is correct. I remember walking into an Arcade and trying a really cool VR headset that put me in a WW plane. I could look around, behind me, and it was really cool. It was 1993. I think it's safe to say that if after 22 years, this still comes out as a novelty, that it's not taking off. Next. Nothing to see here. Reggie is 100% right.



dumedum commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

This seems like a nice collection, but can I play with my Wii Remote NES style? (no seriously, is there a way to do that?)

Anyway, I agree that this is not a big deal. Also, don't see why Wii U owners should care. The entire VC of Wii/WiiU/3DS is massive, and obviously Rare games without the Nintendo ones like DKC, were bought for good money by Microsoft. It's just surprising it took them so long to do it. It's actually quite a lot of missing games - DKC Trilogy, DK 64, Diddy Kong Racing, Goldeneye, Star Fox Adventures...



dumedum commented on Just Dance 2016 is Bringing Its Funky Moves to...:

What's amazing here is the short sightedness of Ubisoft. Somehow they figure that the only games BOTH Wii and Wii U owners will ever play is Just Dance. They know these people buy games... But just this. So even though Nintendo manages to sell games like Splatoon, Ubisoft just gives up. Not a smidgen of an effort to tap into that audience with some innovative games or ports. They just gave up after some half arsed efforts. And now its sealef. No more games. Just Just Dance. No idea how to develop other games for this crowd. None. Unbelievable bad businesses these lame third parties.
