fluggy commented on Talking Point: Horror and Metroid Could be a P...:

Do Naughty Dawg keep churning out the same thing???? They did .... until they took a bold step and bravely created a new IP ...... TLOA ... was only the biggest success of last year!!! My most beloved game of all time now prob!!!!! Come on Ninty
.... take a chance.... Wii U needs a game like that.... a Last of Us/Metroid mash up exclusive would shift some units.



fluggy commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:

Shocking fan service.... Ninty harped on and on bout asymmetrical gameplay ... and don't integrate it when they can..... I'm not even talking about online ... just make it possible for 2 local players to enjoy!!!! But no. Its little things like that, that would give the doubters a reason to still believe in Ninty!!!



fluggy commented on Forgotten Classics: Resident Evil Code: Veronica:

Cracker... Oh .. . that pesky Tyrant on the plane!!! Almost gave up. I'd love an original, old style, traditional Resi on current or last gen console. . . complete with pre rendered graphics and tank controls (which were never all that bad after the quick turn was introduced and made the game more tense.) GC remake still my fave in the series. A boy can dream.



fluggy commented on Video: Here's a Comparison of Mario Kart's Don...:

The original still handles like a dream. I miss the short tight courses of the SNES version. If u master it, its a dream to play. Rainbow Rd at 150cc ..... Wow..... Even if your last with 1 lap left u can reach the front if your skillful enough.



fluggy commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

Hardly surprising when Yoshi is released to rotten reviews..... That was one more title they couldn't afford to slip up over.... They did!!!! So few 3rd party games ..... They have to nail EVERY first party one!!! If Ninty can't justify owning a console from their own franchises.... it will start looking even grimmer!



fluggy commented on Job Cuts Hit Sega's London Office:

Can't remember Sega's last stellar title. Everyone of sonics last few games have been below average at best. Don't know what happened to their quality control but they don't really come across as particularly talented/conciencous devs and are only too happy to charge kids full price for the inferior experiences they create!



fluggy commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

Lol... Gamepad wouldn't work as an accessory! As soon as u make it an accessory ... Few developers would touch it due to fragmentation... Too risky for devs! Seen it with PS Move (7 compatible games or something).... With Wii - motion controls were a necessity so thats why it was successful. Loved Zombie U and WW HD that really benefitted from pad. Need some more creativity from Ninty..... Sure well get something soon.



fluggy commented on Nintendo Australia Confirms Game Boy Advance W...:

No.... I'm saying they owe us stuff for unfulfilling THEIR promise of 3rd party support! I'm not asking for new free games..... I think as a token of appreciation for OUR SUPPORT (I know many Wii U owners who wouldn't have bought one if they knew about the games drought), a few free 12yr old games wouldn't be too much to ask.



fluggy commented on Nintendo Australia Confirms Game Boy Advance W...:

I don't know why Nintendo aren't giving these games away for free or charging £1 for them. No third party support, a slow trickle of 1st party games - after Mario Kart when's the next big release??!! They've really not done enough to reward the people who are sticking by the most under supported console in years. Yes.... It won't make as much money for Ninty but giving Nintendo diehards a console with only a handful of good games is completely unacceptable!!!! I had a look on eShop yesterday and some of the Wii U launch games are still full retail price?!!???!!! £40 for a 16 month old game!!!!! Scandalous!!!!



fluggy commented on Ubisoft Discounts 18 Games on the North Americ...:

I had a look yesterday n was totally gobsmacked!!! Some Launch games on eShop were still full price. Why? Darksiders 2 price has came right down at retail!!!! Why is it still £40 in eShop!! Its 16 months old!!!!!



fluggy commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I think these games companies shouldn't be charging full price for crap like this..... There should be an independent review board.... If a games average is under 70% ... It goes straight in the bargain bin.... Why should u pay full price for an inferior experience!! Devs might opt for a tad more playtesting and quality control if that was the rule, instead of fleecing kids.



fluggy commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

This is downright shocking from Ninty. The production team deserve the boot! Yoshis Island is a well loved franchise.... Is this what they call fan service? At a time when their stock has never been lower they NEED to release quality ..... They don't!!!!! Completely unacceptable!!!! I can only hope they raise their game for Yoshis Yarn.



fluggy commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

Of course it didn't boost sales. Its NOT a system seller. They picked a game that we've seen too many versions of recently. A steller Metroid title with a 95%+ average on Metacritic was the only way to sell significant units and boost hardware sales. Just who is making these decisions!!??



fluggy commented on Nintendo Still Seeking a Product to Define the...:

Zombie U is the only one that seems to have created an enhanced experienced.... Was a good (if not great) game! Gamepad integration seems to be too much of a risk for even Nintendo to take... Their flagships (Zelda and Mario) games only have very uninspired uses! Want something creative to play on it! Come on Ninty!!!



fluggy commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:

They should be refunding the entire cost of the game! Its all getting too much now. Nintendo should release a SNES/Nes/GBA emulator for Wii U And dump EVERY Ninty published game to download for free! Wouldn't cost them anything in production (ignore gamepad compatibility)! Sounds extreme but would boost hardware sales BUT still wouldn't make up for the trickle of games coming through and lack of "promised" 3rd party support. Sorry but having a NEW 330 quid console with a handful of games is completely unacceptable!!!



fluggy commented on The Nikkei Reports Potential Nintendo Smartpho...:

While not exactly risky, not sure there's much credibility to be found here. I have a smart phone n tablet n don't mind the odd hidden object adventure or endless runner but have no desire to see ninty characters on it.... I've got a 3ds for that! Playing games on a touch screen is rotten, although android has great SNES,Nes emulators which play great with the dual shock app.... That's not really what ninty would be aiming at! Stick to your guns... If the Big 2014 games don't make a dent in the market... Maybe revise your approach next year!



fluggy commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

Maybe Nintendo should honour its fan base by bank rolling the production of these games!!! That "promised" 3rd party support was a massive draw for me (although I was always getting a Wii U regardless)! Still, a Wii U with 10 great games is pretty short change for my initial investment!



fluggy commented on Sega Has No Plans To Bring Alien: Isolation To...:

Thank love!!! Everything Sega touch turns to crap ... A reverse King Midas if you will!!! U just have to look at what Sega have done to Sonic and compare it to the recent Mario games!!!! Not to mention the fact that Colonial Marines was awful!!!
Please watch the language — TBD



fluggy commented on Video: Just Look For The U On The Box, Nintend...:

I don't understand this confusion nonsense!! As soon as the Wii U was announced as a "new console" - I knew it was a new console??!!? A 3 second advert with a Wii U pic and a voice saying "Wii U, the new console from Nintendo" would kinda say it all!!! Its not nearly as confusing as calling Xbox 3, Xbox One!



fluggy commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Pas...:

Sublime! Feel sorry for those experiencing it now with video gaming moving on so fast it prob won't have the same impact. This was the first truly great Zelda, an epic masterpiece. Back in the 90s, to a 12 year old boy, this was an incredible experience. Hadn't played anything like it at the time. Used to rush home from school to continue the quest. Loved exploring the dungeons and finding new gizmos. Enjoyed Link Between Worlds but after pondering for a while I prefer the good old chest way of finding new items in each dungeon rather than renting them. Perfection!!!



fluggy commented on Review: 3D Sonic The Hedgehog (3DS eShop):

From my point of view I can dip into classic games like Mario World/Mario Kart/ALttP/Super Metroid and enjoy the experience as if it was almost new to me... They've barely aged a day. On the other hand I dip back into Sonic and get bored after 10 mins.



fluggy commented on Former Sony Developer Feels The Wii U "Won't S...:

Can't see Nintendo abandoning its small Wii U fan base by aborting it. . . these are the diehards who have supported them all these years. Gotta say, Ive been disappointed with the games trickling through at snail's pace BUT 3D World has vindicated my Wii U purchase .... Its a glorious celebration of all things videogame and a joy to play!



fluggy commented on Review: Bravely Default (3DS):

Not my cuppa tea (hate turn based - is there anything more unnatural than LETTING something attack u), but its a great Xmas for Ninty systems ... Totally puttin the next gen to shame!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:

Off screen play is irrelevant ... Most families have a tele in every bloody room these days! The gamepad looks smart but finding ways to apply functionality to games in a way that actually improves the experience is the hard part. Zelda WW and ZombiU are the only 2 that seem to enhance the overall experience! ZombiU in particular, just couldn't be played on any other system. We need more games like that!



fluggy commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:

"Months of top-notch entertainment"!!!??? Um, I've had 3 weeks entertainment from my Wii U in a whole year. Zombiu, mario n Wind Waker only games I liked at all on Wii U, ignoring inferior multi platform ports which I have on PS3 anyway. Sorry but Ninty made a dreadful mistake releasing a console which they couldn't support themselves. We get delayed drips and drabs for a year and most of the games have been underwhelming to say the least. Regardless, I'm hanging onto mine hoping things pick up soon.
