fluggy commented on Video: What If Super Metroid Was A 3D Classic?:

What if it was remade for Wii U or 3DS with a graphical overhaul to the level of "Ori and the Blind Forest" (the best Metroid style game ive played since Super Metroid with the best graphics of any 2D game ive played)! That would be glorious!!!!



fluggy commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:

RockBand died out because it was stale!!! Fun initially... sure!!! I don't know anyone who continued to play each iteration much or anyone who would want too!! Its a dead franchise!!! I couldn't go back to tacky plastic after rocksmith2014 which really is a great (and useful) app/game!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

Its awful!!! Pikmin keyrings or ds game cases...?... Anyone????!! .... Anyone???!!!.. No, I didnt think so!!!! Nothing good to buy after years of collecting... No incentive to add points any more. Had a look last week and thought I'd just swap my substantial accumulated points for a few 1000 points cards to download games.... I couldn't as the only points card you can purchase are (baffilingly) only for (the obsolete) Wii Virtual Console and not the Wii U eshop!??!! Rubbish!



fluggy commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Snes for me. Up all night or Sunday sessions of SNES battle mode track 4 were great. . . as were the tight tracks and skilful gameplay. Can imagine new players hating it because if u don't master it u won't like it. But once you learn to jump n twist in and out of every tight corner... Its incredible.



fluggy commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

How bout a "normal", back to basics console thats as powerful as present tech allows it to be and with a framework that is in tune with 3rd party devs so we don't get the " Wii U's architecture is too tricky to create games for" crap.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

.... Or water down the legacy ... Any reasonable android phone can play games via emulator up to SNES/GBA!!! Who wants to play "proper" games on a phone??? Sony tried it .... Failure!!! Tablets added a controller ... Obsolete!!! Its DOA!!!! Stick to maintaining credibility Ninty!!!



fluggy commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

The pricing is all wrong!!! If you want to sell Wii U to be your customer's "other" console you want to make it cheaper!!! If you can get an Xbox One for $30 more, consumers will prob find that a more attractive offer!



fluggy commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Just about all third party games seem to have had this prob. Assassin's, 2 Batman games etc! Regardless of the troublesome infrastructure being different - surely it cant be that hard to get reasonable results!! Its probably extremely different to the original Wii also - yet Ninty game devs (who didnt actually design the consoles inner workings) can milk it for everything its worth!



fluggy commented on Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric:

Sonic is a total embarrassment.... The fact that this will sit on the same shelf ... At the same price as Smash Bros is shocking. Sega really are one of the worst devs ! Occasionally a game like Alien Isolation surprises u but generally ... Theyre shocking.



fluggy commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

Not allowing 3DS game piracy with this launcher is irrelevant now that Gateway claim to have cracked latest firmware. Running SNES/Megadrive emulators is piracy anyway, considering these retro games are available on Wii U V.C and 3DS eshop! On the plus side it could be a great way for Ninty to generate sales of the New 3DS. Think lotsa people would upgrade to new model if they had a compatible flashcart!



fluggy commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

Playing 3DS game just now and less than impressed. Coming to realise the original Sonic was completely over rated ... it just doesnt stand the test of time or compare to games like Mario World! .... The formula just doesnt work! Marios newer games have been worthy - even the lesser recent Wii/Wii U versions! Sonics not been in a good game for years!! How long does it take to improve/fine tune a game!?? Put the hedgehog out to pasteur Sega!!!Hes suffered enough!!!



fluggy commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

This is stupid. Nintendo made a decision not to include any reasonably sized storage. . . so gave us external HD support. There's no prob here. Release game - people that have basic model will buy a £5 flash stick to play it! Other companies release larger games on eshop!



fluggy commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

Damn..... The last Nintendo mag! Really sad day. Been buying this since the appallingly named Nintendo Magazine System. Guessed it was coming though coz the site wasn't exactly up to date recently. Ive been downloading my copy from Zinio. Can't believe I'll never look forward to another issue.



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

Can't believe it!!! Fatal Frame 4 on Wii had a patch developed that worked a treat. Maybe same kinda thing could be used here ..... although the patch took bloody ages to be developed and released. I'm hoping this aint true!!



fluggy commented on A 3DS Can be Used as a Controller in Super Sma...:

Whoa, whoa , whoa!!! Something really fishy about having to own the 3ds version of the game to only use the 3ds as a controller on Wii u! If u wanted local multiplayer on Wii U with 4 3ds owning friends you'd need 5(!!!!!!) copies of the game!! Surely integrating the 3ds as a controller would be/should be as simple as a dlc programme to install on your 3ds to make it compatible!!!



fluggy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Sorry but that is NOT what I meant when I insisted the 3ds shoulda had dual analogue. A tiny analogue nub???!!!?? Why not just give us dual circle pads. They continually revise these things and get it wrong time n time again. This fragmentation is appalling and unforgivable in the console industry.



fluggy commented on New Legend Of Zelda "Only Possible" Thanks To ...:

Not sure if I like the sound of this. Too many changes. Enjoyed Link Between World's but on second playthrough I realised the new item purchasing was rotten. I like stumbling through a dungeon and trying to guess which item will be hiding in a chest somewhere. To be able to complete the game without having to use ALL items just isn't Zelda.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

Nintendo should have a ROM/emulator service instead of VC. Dump every ROM from NES to N64 (without having to adapt it for VC) and provide the correct emulator and charge £1 a ROM. Cheap to do from Nintys point of view and real service at an apt price for customers.



fluggy commented on Nintendo's At It Again With Another Majora's M...:

Really enjoyed Majoras Mask but at the time I remember thinking its not a game I would ever want to play again. Slightly too many quirks for my liking n its all a bit of a chore remembering who's around and at what time.



fluggy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

Yeah.... On "vwii." Everything works from the Wii homebrew channel. . . been around for quite a while now. Really Cool ... U can use gamepad as screen for all homebrew apps.



fluggy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

My first console. (Im 36) . Just completed Wonderboy in Monsterland yesterday on Smsplus on my WiiU.... Rock solid.... Can't believe anyone could complete it without relying on save states!!! Rastan, Shinobi, Psycho Fox, Gangster Town, Fantasy Zone .... All still rather playable today.Great console.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

Um .... No .... Because Its not portable (mine can't even make it past doorway never mind into bedroom), its not touch capcative = HUGE drawback. U can't store fave cartoons on it. I like the gamepad but my Nexus 7 buries it when it comes to entertaining my son ... and beats it in every other category apart from ... Um ... playing Wii U games.



fluggy commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

HAS to be A Link to the Past. Just a completely gripping story packed with every emotion AND the structure hasn't been changed (until the Wii U version allegedly). Hadn't played anything like it... used to race home from school to continue the mammoth adventure. That's the thing with Ninty.... U get experiences rather than just games. Had a Megadrive too ... But u just didnt get gripping pageturners like ALttP or Super Metroid on other systems.



fluggy commented on Eiji Aonuma Hints at The Legend of Zelda on Wi...:

God of War 3 on PS3 was best in series. The incredible visuals n design were watered down for Ascension.... If they had ignored spending time on multiplayer and created an incredible solo experience fans would be happy. They didn't .... They tarnished a legacy, sales were poor and members of the dev team were rightly laid off... All because some dimwit wanted to include a pointless multiplayer. I wouldve liked resi 5 a lot.... If it was just Leon in solo game without having to babysit Shiva. Dead Space 1+2 were both far superior to 3 ... WITH NO CO-OP!!!



fluggy commented on Eiji Aonuma Hints at The Legend of Zelda on Wi...:

Please not co-op.... My fave franchises, Dead Space and God of War were ruined with co-op. Single player in Dead Space 3 suffered and main campaign in God of War Ascension wasn't up to scratch as devs were spending time n resources to include multiplayer. Co-op Zelda doesn't sound necessary at all.



fluggy commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms That Dual GamePad Su...:

I'm guessing the reason Mario Kart 8 doesn't offer separate screens/streams to gamepad and tv (what possible reason would Ninty have for not including this) as opposed to the tv mirroring they opted for, is that the Wii U simply isn't capable of pumping out separate streams of Mario Kart. For the first time we have 2 separate screens (something I've wanted since the SNES game).... And Ninty decide to give us split screen on an already small gamepad display. Baffling.



fluggy commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

Displaying the same screen on gamepad and tele is far easier to do do than pumping out two separate streams. Combined with the level of detail in MK8. ..which must be close to the max of what the Wii U is capable of ... I think it must be too much of a strain on the circuits! There is simply NO reason not to accommodate this functionality if it were possible.



fluggy commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

Why does the gamepad get such a bad rap? .... Its comfortable and works. Yes, the uses so far haven't been great... ZombiU was the best use and a very enjoyable game. Given that Mario Kart 8 doesn't even have separate screens for local multiplayer (like in Black Ops 2) ... I'm guessing the Wii U isn't powerful enough to pump out 2 screens of MK8 at once which is disappointing. The WiFi distance is also appalling. Apart from that its great.



fluggy commented on Mario Kart 8 Sells More Than 1.2 Million Units...:

Stunning game... Love playing it with my son .... and a free game too... We chose Pikmin 3!!! An absolutely charming delight!!! Never played a Pikmin game before. Highly recommend it (unless you've not got Wind Waker yet!!!)



fluggy commented on Feature: Memories of the Wii and DS Wi-Fi Conn...:

I was in the top 1500 World at War players.... Not that impressive until u realise the top 1000 were cheaters with 99999999 kills and 0 deaths. Gonna miss it and Mario Kart 2. The release of Wii Mini looks rather sinister and calculated now.



fluggy commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

Can't wait for this but not separating pad and TV for local multiplayer is shocking!!! A flagship franchise NOT utilising the main feature of their flagship console is completly unacceptable..... It CANT be an over site ... Wii U must've struggled to chug out seperate signals for this game!



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.
