fluggy commented on Soapbox: If Nintendo Took On Virtual Reality, ...:

VR in its current form is dead!! Same as Motion Plus, PS Move, New 3DS, Kinect etc... These things only work if theres NO fragmentation!! All the things I mentioned are still great tech .... yet no one supports them or ever did, apart from a handful of early games!! VR will only work if a console is designed exclusively for it!!! If devs are given the choice to develop for 30,000,000 PS4 users ... would they rather cater to an audience of 2,000,000 PS4 VR headset owners??? Unlikely!!! Sure, its exciting now ... but so was PS Move, New 3DS and Kinect!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS is Yet to ...:

Hardly surprising... Fragmentation rarely works.... Wii tons of games... Motion plus just a handful. Ps3 tons of games... PS Move a handful. Xbox 360... Kinect etc etc. New 3ds just the same... 1 exclusive game in a year! Same will happen with VR unless a console is released where a VR headset is compulsory. On the plus side my new 3ds has complete Snes/Genesis/Master System/GameGear/GBA/PS Engine romsets and the retroarch emulators (particularly SNES) are incredible.. . worth the upgrade cost alone.



fluggy commented on Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition is Shuffling Onto...:

Loved it on Wii... But why aren't we getting an HD version?? Started playing it recently on my 50" LG and it looks dreadful.... Realise the HD version I've got on Ps3 wasn't exactly a looker but it's a darn sight better than the muddy, grainy Wii version.



fluggy commented on Image & Form Hails SteamWorld Heist as "an Eve...:

Thoroughly deserves it!! ALL the big xmas console releases were kind of a let down!! Gave Heist a shot (I generally hate turn based games) and loved it!!! Ploughed 25 hours into it and levelled everyone up to the max!!! Addictive as hell!!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Allure of the Virtual Conso...:

With great homebrew and emulators on 3DS now and on WiiU via vwii, Ninty should just dump every nintendo rom on the eshop and charge £1-£2 per game! Beat the pirates and rake it in. I just installed Retroarch on my N3DS yesterday and the emulator cores including Snes play like a dream... Much better than even PSP now. WiiU emus are naturally even better still and run perfectly!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Considering amiibo Features and...:

Amiibo Schmiibo!! Load of kids nonsense. Really wish they hadn't taken off! A cynical, opportunist cash machine to exploit unsuspecting parents. In 2 yrs they'll hopefully by bargain binned like the original D Infinity figures.



fluggy commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Love the concept... I love playing console games in bed/on the go!! Odd.... Everyone still swears the reason the Vita failed is because people don't want to play home console games on a handheld... Just not true...



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo is Right to Move On Fr...:

This "branding" crap is nonsense.... I don't know ANYONE who didn't understand that Wii U was a new console. . . All u need to rectify it anyway is "1" advert that says "Wii U.... A new console from Nintendo". No one seemed confused by 3DS or XBoxOne! The console obviously alienated 3rd parties But... If third parties produce lacklustre ports of old games... What do they expect!



fluggy commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

Why does ANYONE care about this?? An extra character in an already overcrowded, old game, who seems to borrow his moves from other characters.... That's the big reveal at the end!!?? That's what people want...??



fluggy commented on Sega: Recent Sonic Games Haven't Been "Accepta...:

Shame they don't seem to realise that it's unacceptable before release. Asking kids to fork out for unfinished, buggy, Ill conceived trash is as good as stealing. No sympathy when Dev teams get sacked for releasing rubbish.. Very rarely happens when a game gets rave reviews.



fluggy commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

Don't mind downloads for smaller games, say, under 5gb. Problem with downloads is, eventually, they can be removed from eshop/ps store and if u dont store them on console hard drive indefinitely ... You've lost em... Forever! High price to pay for something that isn't actually yours n that u can't resell! Not to mention the fact that games on PSStore tend to be £10-£15 more expensive to download for some baffling reason!



fluggy commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

Exaggerating??? Fatal Frame is sitting at 66%. Ninty (who were already in enough trouble) have delayed all big releases to next year... They can Ill afford a zelda... Spin off or not... To be getting reviews as low as 40%. Metal Gear PP is at 95%. Kirkby Yarn was a Wii game, released 6 years and Yoshi was nowhere near as good. You might be happy with big Nintendo franchises getting "fair" reviews... I'm not. In a climate where whole Dev teams can be fired for 1 flop, and given Nintendo's current reputation, they need games to be GREAT!



fluggy commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

Nintendo are really making it hard for themselves!!! How can a company in so much trouble be so indifferent about the quality of its products. Was really looking forward to this and Fatal Frame and both are subpar!! Fatal Frame was third party but for Nintendo to taint Zelda, it's most treasured franchise with this half baked trash is unforgiveable.... Especially after other poorly received franchises like Yoshi's Yarn. Given the big games coming out on PS4/X1 over the next 4 weeks, ninty really NEEDS to give its loyal fans a reason to keep playing. . . They seem more n more out of touch with each release. They're not giving me any other option than to defect to Fallout 4/Battlefront this Xmas. Still.... At least I have the upcoming Metroid Soccer still to savour.! UNACCEPTABLE!



fluggy commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes ...:

Oh dear... Why would they release this under the treasured Zelda franchise.... shoulda just reskinned it n wrote it off!!! Nintendo are at a time when they really cant afford flops like this!!! ... Still .... the upcoming Metroid Soccer will rectify their situation!!!



fluggy commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

Bit disappointed this is happening so soon... still adore my Wii U n thought the exclusives coming out looked good... Guess they'll be made (or held back) for NX launch too now!!! Intrigued by the "industry leading tech" claim... My PS4 (which I love) and X1 are hardly cutting edge these days!!!



fluggy commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

Course it's a sequel and it's certainly a better game than 1. Started playing 2 again last week and it's just as incredible as I remember... So many different styles and nice uses of the wii mote... Each level offers something different. Really is a masterpiece. Looking at the wii back catalogue.... It's really quite sad that it's not remembered more fondly... There's cracking games from every genre!!



fluggy commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

My heart says SNES World.... But after starting galaxy 2 again 2 weeks ago... It has to be that. 25 years of gaming experience fine tuned and refined to a glorious celebration of all things Mario. . . Complete with new mechanics and incredibly realistic gravity system. Wow!!!



fluggy commented on Mario History: Mario Kart 64 - 1997:

I was really impressed and so excited when I first saw this on my mates imported jap N64... The graphics blew me away. Hasn't aged nearly as well as the SNES version. The jerky graphics make it a hard game to go back too. A lot of N64 games don't play as well as I remember.... Going back to Goldeneye really wrecked my fond memories... Really is an atrocious looking game!



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

Amiibos are a scandalous, cynical cash cow created to fleece money out of kids and unsuspecting parents by a company who really should know better. Your average Nintendo, posable action figure toys don't exactly fly off the shelves... So we'll make rigid, unposable models... TONS of them... Pretend it does something useful with a miniscule amount of DLC (which would retail on its own for bout $0.50) and... bingo.... The kids ll be hooked! Why can't it just be about the games like the old days??!!



fluggy commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

Never used it.. Never will.. No idea what it is or what it does and I bought my U at launch. Is this the pest that allows other people to post meaningless nonsense like "good level" or "this game is sooo hard" .... Basically interfering and spoiling my play sessions!! I miss the old days. No trophies, dlc, patches or rubbish social networking nonsense!



fluggy commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Amiibo are a passing fad... a cynical cash cow aimed at kids and unfortunate, duped parents!!.... wish they'd kill it already and concentrate on making games!!! All it is is a way to charge a good chunk extra for very small portions of DLC!!! They focus on amiibo and everyone slates there E3 presentation!!!!! Get the message Ninty ... we want games - not overpriced plastic ..... come back from the dark side!!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

They would've been better just showing JUST Starfox ... then cutting the feed .... and ive never liked Starfox!!! Never has so much excitement been destroyed in such a short time!!! Yoshi Yarn was the only thing I liked ... and that was announced ages ago!!! We get a "Non-Metroid" game no-one wants..... a multiplayer Zelda no one wants(4-Swords was the weakest Zelda game), another seemingly identical Mario tennis game, mmmmooooorrree Paper Mario and way too much Mario Maker ..... which is soooo dull to watch!!! You've had a year to prepare and this is the fruits of your labour???!!! Completely unacceptable!!!!



fluggy commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Shocking!!!! Metroid is about isolation!!!! What Metroid fan wants to play something called Metroid Blast Ball!!! The whole presentation left me seething with rage!!! Awful!!!!! Not one BIG reveal!!! Really have lost me with this crap!!!



fluggy commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

Load of tat!!! Hope this fad ends asap!!! Got Disney Infinity for my son. Fun for a week! 10 figures now in a bag in cupboard. NFC should get scrapped. This is something that should be 0.99$DLC. Instead kids are made to collect unbendable, boring figures. My son has great Nintendo figures ... ones you can actually play with. He plays with the figure ... he plays a Mario game ... there ... "Toys to Life" without any NFC figure collection nonsense. Its a cynical, greedy, cash-grabbing, marketing ploy focussing on prolonged milking of parents and children!



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!!!
