Emblem commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

@EarthboundBenjy @rjejr They are essentially Pokemon, you set them free in the game world and you can fight with or against them, they can be customised like player characters and used on both versions of the game.

You don't actually play with them yourself and they are not physical gateways to dlc like Skylanders/Infinity. Hence they are totally optional and not required to enjoy the game but they will add an extra spice to the mix if you pick one up and know other who also pick one up.



Emblem commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

Platinum are my best studio and apart from Mad World (missed it on release as and only played it after AR to see where it came from) and Infinite space (Didn't have a DS only 3DS), i've loved all their games with a passion.

I was so pissed Anarchy Reigns didn't blow up because its one of their best games and one of the best multi-player brawlers i've ever played. Can't wait until Bayo 2 arrives, i've been playing Korra and its actually very good, the only problem is the budget and time constraints are obvious by its length and lack of content. But as a budget £9 game its awesome.



Emblem commented on Resident Evil Creator Shinji Mikami Is A Fan O...:

Meh, Rebecca was one of the only characters in RE1 that actually acted like a real person. Also I loved her in Resident Evil 0. Dont get me wrong Jill, Claire & Ada are great but since they are pretty much fearless it kind of kills the whole horror setting.



Emblem commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Super Smash Bros. For ...:

Since almost all Nintendo franchises come only once a generation I hope they all have (meaningful) DLC. People forget that we won't see another Pikmin, MK, Starfox, Smash etc until the next Nintendo home or handheld console is out.



Emblem commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

@CaPPa That's really subjective, I own both PS4 & Wii U and they are both great and complement each other well. If your PS4 is only playing DCUO & Netflix and you will not get anything until next June then i'd argue you have no interest in the other great games that are out and coming, this is due to your game/genre preference more than a lack of great games actually available and coming out.

@rjejr If you try to make a potion you will get a list of your items to select from when you try to complete the process. Not at home right now but can't you see inventory in the (poorly named) tutorial tab either?



Emblem commented on Video: Curve Studios Shows Off Some Stealth In...:

Looking forward to the co-op video, i'm really hoping it isn't just tacked on like Child of Light. Buying it mainly for single player anyway but my Wii U is my multi-player console so it helps to have as much co-op games on it as possible :) .



Emblem commented on Game Freak Confirms That The Pokémon Stadium ...:

They are right, 3D pokemon on 3DS amd the decline of local multiplayer pretty much eliminated the need for a stadium game or a full pokemon game. They should just do spin offs and such on the Wii U and future home consoles.



Emblem commented on Curve Studios Outlines Release Details of Four...:

@sinalefa Noticed that as well, honestly its for the best as it was going to be overshadowed by Bayonetta 2.

I already own Swapper and Lone Survivor elsewhere (awesome games) so i'll only be getting Stealth 2.

Support Curve guys and gals, these guys are an indie dev worthy of your money.



Emblem commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

My XL is only 2 years old so before i rush out and get one of these i want to see more of the 3DS's future line up, apart from a few localisations and ports (FF,MH4G, YW1&2, Xeno,Tales R etc) and Project Steam there are no 3DS games coming in 2015 that we know about. Even the Wii U has more new games announced for 2015 then the 3DS, which is pretty grim in itself.

I'll wait and see what Nintendo has planned for the 3DS games wise before i make my decision.



Emblem commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@MadAdam81 That HW reveiw was BS, there was lots of misinformation and conjecture that i highlighted and the reviewer didnt even bother to check his facts and amend the content.



Emblem commented on Bayonetta 2 Demo Now Live In The European Wii ...:

Not going to bother with the demo but those of you on the fence should give it a try. I'll wait for the real deal in a couple of weeks, should have finished Shadow Of Mordor and Hyrule Warriors Adventure mode by then.



Emblem commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

@Damo please correct the article as your source didn't bother to translate properly, they are talking about AAA games not every game.

The Darkstalkers thing is unrelated, it wasn't triple AAA but bombed anyway despite alot of demand from fans.



Emblem commented on Renegade Kid Releases Debut Trailer For Upcomi...:

@taffy @Tops @taffy "The first thing I expect many people might think is, “I thought you were working on Treasurenauts!” Yes, well, I have a confession to make. We were working on Treasurenauts – and it was progressing really well – then, one day I got a bee in my bonnet to make a [Metroidvania] game ... it started when I mocked up a 2D demake of Moon Chronicles for fun a while back. It came together much better than I expected, and I really liked how the main little space man turned out. I let that mock-up sit dormant for a few months while we finished up the real Moon Chronicles and also continued to work on Treasurenauts, but the idea of the 2D space game came back to the front of my mind one day"

Pretty much means they stopped (really) working on it ages ago to focus on Moon, the failed kickstarter and this. I'm sure they will get back to it once this is out, or maybe they will go back to Mutant Mudds 2 which is also in suspended development.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Highlights 'Nindies' and Their Games ...:

@markybbop The only one missing from Wii U that really should be there is Towerfall, its so good and 4 player. Transistor is also awesome but im not sure Nintendo fans would like it. Other then that PS4/X1 indie games are pretty weak but there are some good looking ones on the way.

Can someone ask RK if Treasurenaughts is cancelled? Its totally lost all hype at this point.



Emblem commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Battles Int...:

I got smash day one but its going back to amazon this week. Its a great game but i cant really play it on my commute due to its fast pace.

I also picked up Shadow of Mordor for PS4 (awesome) and between that and Hyrule Warriors Smash is not getting any play at home. I'll wait for the Wii U version, ive already put 5 or so hours in but i really need the big screen expierence.



Emblem commented on Guide: How to Unlock the Full Roster in Super ...:

This list is not 100% character unlocks are seemingly random, Wario was my first unlock (10 Matches), the others i have also don't match up with this list at all. I'm actually pretty glad as its alot more fun that way :) .



Emblem commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

Stealth Inc 2, Bayonetta 2, Smash Wii U & MAYBE Sonic Boom for me. I'll also be picking up Swords & Soldiers 2 and maybe Affordable Space Adventures (If its ready). Along with the PS4 & 3DS games on my shopping list Fall is going to be jam packed with great game experiences.



Emblem commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

@vamkar Lol okay that one got me :) .

Even if i didnt have a Wii U i would have got one for Bayo2. Atleast the other consoles are getting Korra on the 22nd so they can play some Platinum goodness. Im picking it up for PS4 and maybe 3DS if that version turns out okay.



Emblem commented on Master Quest DLC Details Emerge for Hyrule War...:

@FX102A You can but i would say wait until your sure you like the game first as im sure the dlc deal is limited.

The preorder dlc is coming for sure but we have not been given dates yet. I expect this is due to the deals that have been made with retailers.



Emblem commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

Sigh, i fell for the clickbait article title.

Edit: Wow people are really taking this as an offical confirmation? I thought i was bad for just clicking the link lol. Lol hiw many times do we ave this exact same scenario? No plans or afaik does not equal and offical confirmation.



Emblem commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

@Melkac Never happening, TK games are always 'complete' on release, they just always have a ton of follow up DLC support that TK either convert and transfer from their other games (since they use the same engine), or they develop once the initial game is complete.

DW8 XLC on PS4 has over 50 separate pieces of optional DLC, they were released bi-weekly since release and there is still more to come. WO3U also has a bi-weekly dlc release schedule that I expect will deliver dlc over the next few months. The season pass for Hyrule Warriors is the best valued deal for a warriors game dlc ever.



Emblem commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

@Artwark @Interneto An 8 is a good score i'm not disputing that at all. I don't much care for scores to be honest i glean the information i need from the actual content of reviews. Since NL often have long reviews they are a good source of said information which is why i read them. That said Bayonetta is one of the best action games ever, if you are going to give it an arbitrary score it deserves a higher score than 8 imo.

My issue is actually with the review itself and (some) reviews in general, they lack consistency and often have mis-information and conjecture (The Hyrule Warriors review is a good example of this). For example Mega Man also received an 8 but didn't lose marks because of its age, this review was published about the same time. Most times I just ignore it but once in a while I make a comment.
