Game-Over commented on Review: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship E...:

It would be nice to see more games returning to that kind of arty, cartoon, comic book style, i love it. Capcom in particular is a company i would love to see reverting back to a more retro style, i just can't take to the new visuals for Street Fighter, for me it's lost all it's appeal.

Good review, really nice visuals for this game and it's true next generation games don't all have to be 3D graphical marvels, old school games can still exist today. Good game play, creativity and style go a long way and never get old.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo 64 Titles Heading to the Wii U Virtua...:

Good to hear this, like with the original Wii the VC is such an important part of the Wii U and updates like this are badly needed to keep things interesting. Patience has been a bit of virtue when it's come to the Wii U VC, it's good to see that it's starting to pay off. Hopefully more consoles are to follow.

For those new to the Wii U and the VC things are probably going well enough but i think people who had the old Wii console and have already downloaded many of the games that are on offer it can seem like Nintendo are just slowly and somewhat frustratingly going over the same ground. I don't mind downloading some of the old stuff again but it would be nice to see something new too, the introduction of the Gameboy Advance is not enough.

Nice to see a return to home consoles on the Wii U VC but aside from Super Punch Out there isn't much to get excited about, why is stuff being released so slowly. Something significant needs to happen in terms of the Wii U VC and E Shop, a new console being added would be nice or just an increase in what's being released for download every week. A little more needs to be added in terms of variety and choice.

Windy...Thanks for providing me with the answer to these burning questions, i knew something was wrong. Hopefully a crack team replaces this individual that was left in charge and puts up the games that i want to download from next week onwards, it's not much to ask.

The Wii U VC as a whole seems more Nintendo orientated this time around, theirs only Nintendo consoles in the VC and much of the game releases are from Nintendo, this is no terrible thing but their just isn't the same variety that was there with the the original Wii VC, Nintendo seem to be steering away from the other systems this time around. Variety is needed though, why haven't the N64 and Gamecube been added to the Wii U VC yet?.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (Europe):

Why is it that many of the systems and games that where available on the original Wii VC are not available on Wii U VC?. I was looking forward to the prospect of even more systems being added to the Wii U VC but this is looking more and more unlikely. The Wii U VC seems to be just about releasing games that are to be played on the gamepad screen which can only mean a continual focus on the release of handheld systems and games, if this is the case then were probably more likely to see Gameboy Colour titles then Gamecube ones.

KeeperBvk...Thanks for the input, obviously u see more flaws in my spelling and punctuation then the steady flow of GBA and not much else that we are currently getting for download every week. Gameboy Advance titles are great for fans of handheld games and that's fair enough it's a good option but the Wii U is a home console made for HD tv, more home consoles and games should be added.

More GBA, i thought that their would be more of a demand for more consoles and games to be added preferably home consoles. Game Boy Advance titles have become almost the main download diet, what's next Game Boy Colour and orginal Gameboy titles it would'nt surprise me at this point and it would'nt be a problem if their was plenty of other options every week for download but strangely their isn't.

Game-Over commented on Review: Street Fighter Alpha 2 (Wii U eShop / ...:

The Alpha series is quite a different visually to the original street fighter series and is definitely worth a look if ur a street fighter fan. I have the SNES version on the Wii VC and like so many others would love to see the superior versions released for the Wii U VC, i'd love to see Street Fighter 3, Marvel vs Capcom and SNK vs Capcom also, great games. I much prefer the visuals for the old street fighter games, i just can't take to the new Tekken style animations for Street Fighter 4, it would be great to see Capcom return to that old style.

Obviously with Mario Kart being released everyone is happy this week even though outsIde of Mario kart it's another pretty poor week for the Wii U VC and like that Mario Kart comes with a pretty hefty download price tag. Although Mario Kart is an expensive download i do think that digital download is the way to go, it's great to have the option and instance of purchasing a new game from the comfort of ur own home

Good to see more indie titles but it is another disappointing week for the Wii U VC. Their is too much of a focus now on games that are to be played on the game pad screen, it's become a real limiting factor on what's being released. It's as though Nintendo is trying to turn the Wii U into a handheld game system wether u like it or not.

Nothing really that exciting this week for the Wii U VC but that's just my opinion, some decent enough games i suppose but none that i would instantly download. Patience really is a virtue when it comes to Wii U VC and e Shop, hopefully it will get rewarded somewhere down the line.

Just GBA for the Wii U VC, i suppose this is to be expected for the time being but how long will this trend continue? It's strange to be in possession of a next generation HD home console and to currently have only old handheld games to download. The GBA is OK but it should never be the main download diet of a next gen home console.

I rarely like the visuals or the button bashing gameplay they use for super hero type games like Batman. Theirs always a tendency for a movie like adaptation of the character rather then a comic book one which is a pity when u think of all the source material that's their from the great comic book artists and writers that built the Batman character. I'd love to see a Batman game that had an authentic comic book look and feel to it.

hiptanka...Forgive my ignorance when it comes to handheld systems and games i have played on handhelds but never owned one as i've always had a preference for home consoles, thus my purcahse of a Wii U. That's really the point, the GBA on the VC is no bad thing and playing on the gamepad screen is a nice option but like that u buy a home console to play games that were made for a tv screen not a handheld one.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 10th April (Europe):

hiptanka...Yeah the old Wii VC games were mostly full screen i'm not seeing this with the Wii U maybe it's because it's HD or is it that's it's matching whats on the gamepad screen. To find that the gamepad screen is actually limiting what ur seeing on ur hd tv would be quite disappointing. It could be too that the gamepad screen is the the reason were not seeing certain games and consoles coming to the VC and why theirs a focus now on GBA games. I like the gamepad and the Wii U console as a whole but I bought the Wii U mainly for the VC being that the old Wii VC is so good but i'm getting the feeling that the new VC may actually be more limited then the old one. I hope i'm proven wrong.

Mostly GBA games again, is this the future of the VC?, playing handheld games on a next generation home system. The more u look at it it's hard to understand handheld games on the Wii U VC it's like a strange backward step in the sense that the magic of the handheld was really to give u slightly inferior minimized home console games that u could play mobile in the palm of ur hands, thats the selling point, that should'nt be a selling point of a next generation home console. Home console versions of games are better, the only thing that makes the hand held mobile experience advantageous is that u can take it with u like with films and music etc... but like that the Wii U is'nt a mobile device. GBA is on the VC and that's fair enough but should'nt the Wii U be more about home console releases, i don't want mobile versions of games i have a mobile phone for that, i bought a home console because i want home console versions of games.

Nice article, i never had a Sega Saturn but i did have a Dreamcast and like the Saturn it had some great 2D fighters. I'd love to see these consoles on the VC.

hcfwesker...Yeah the arrival of GBA is'nt a bad thing but like that if this is the direction that Nintendo takes with Wii U VC we may never see home consoles like the Gamecube arriving on the VC which would be a serious disappointment. With the old Wii VC releasing so many home consoles and titles it was expected that Wii U VC would naturally improve on this service but i'm not seeing this yet.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

I can understand some fans enthusiasm for hand held games on the Wii U VC but do u really want the Wii U VC to become a glorified Game Boy Advance, is this what u bought a Wii U console for? would u prefer to download Gameboy Advance titles over say SNES, Megadrive or say lets if it were on option Dreamcast ones. The Wii U is a home console and i think their should be more of a demand for home console releases.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

Not a home console release in sight on the Wii U, well i suppose that was to be expected this week with the hand held gamepad buzz but i'm really hoping that this is'nt going to be an ongoing trend. If i wanted an old hand held console i'd have bought one i was expecting more from the Wii U.

Game-Over commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

My only issue with handheld systems coming to VC is if Nintendo's VC releases become too gamepad and handheld focused which would severely limit the progression of the home consoles and their games on the VC. Gameboy Advance releases are OK but i would like the VC to be more about the NES, SNES, N64, Megadrive, Neo Geo, Arcade, Dreamcast, and Gamecube, that sounds a lot more interesting.

Game-Over commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

The Gamepad is definitely a useful alternative to using the tv but like that i bought the Wii U for use on the tv and not to play to handheld games. Although i'm not a big fan i can see the the logic in releasing handheld systems and games on the VC, it is a good way of using the gamepad and obviously theirs considerable interest there which is good news for Nintendo.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

I think theirs a focus here on releasing games that are to be played on the Wii U controller screen, i don't know if this is a good thing. Does this mean that the controller screen is going to limit what they can do in terms of releasing games. I notice even when playing VC games on a tv ur not getting full screen this was not a problem with the original Wii. My VC games on the original Wii are actually displayed better on the big screen.

Game-Over commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

The reality is u don't buy a Wii U to play portable hand held games, the Wii U controller screen is a nice alternative but it's not a truly mobile portable device. For the most part u want to play ur games on a HD TV, whats the point in making the Wii U HD if ur releasing games that are to be played on a small screen.

antonvaltaz...A pleasent surprise if this is true because it is starting to look like the new VC is pretty much Nintendo only this time round and while thats not a terrible thing being that Nintendo have developed so many good consoles and games, it would be disappointing at the same time to realise that a lot of other consoles won't make it to the VC. That's what was great about the old VC the sheer variety of quality consoles and games.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

The VC has NES and SNES and while i don't have any issue with Game Boy Advance games being added i would much rather have seen a N64 or Gamecube entry. Where has the Megadrive and Neo Geo gone? if there not there it likely means that the Dreamcast wont be coming anytime soon either, even the VC arcade is pretty much being ignored.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

While it's always good to see more games and consoles being added to the Virtual console i'm not that excited about handheld ones. I can understand why it's being done and their will be a demand for it being that the Wii U has a handheld controller but it is'nt a handheld machine. With the Wii U being a more powerful machine u would expect more of a progression with the VC, u would expect access now to game libraries and consoles that the orginal Wii could'nt emulate.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

With the Wii U VC and the Wii U overall Nintendo seem to be sticking more to games that were released on Nintendo consoles or were developed by Nintendo themselves which is fair enough being that Nintendo has a fantastic library of games but variety is the spice of life and it will be disappointing to find that certain games just won't get released because of that. Will any non nintendo consoles appear on the new VC?, it's been over a year u have to wonder. It would be a let down if that were the case but like that if VC Arcade was improved upon it would'nt be so bad.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

A slightly better week for for the Wii U VC but overall it's starting to look like the new VC is actually inferior to the old VC. I don't see any Sega or SNK titles yet, the variety of consles and game developers is what was great about the old VC. I was the expecting more powerful consoles to be added to the new VC along with the old ones but u have question if this will happen at all. Things would not be so bad if they emulated more arcade games like a Final Fight Arcade or a Marvel vs Capcom 2. For example i love Street Fighter 2 on the SNES but i'd like to able to play Street Fighter Third Strike on the Dreamcast too,maybe this will happen down the road, i hope it will but i'm having doubts.

Theirs not too many new exciting cd games on the way but whats surprising is that the virtual console eshop is not realeasing much stuff either. From what i can see their are no Mega Drive or Neo Geo games available on the new virtual console, no arcade releases either. I thought i might be seeing some Marvel vs Capcom or SNK vs Capcom oreven a new console being added. The Wii U is a nice little console but they really need to start releasing stuff for it.

The Wii U virtual console needs to be improved , even the old Wii has a better catalogue of games, more systems and more publishers. The new Virtual Console just seems to be going over old ground which is fine being that it is retro but some upgrades need to be added. I was expecting a general improvement all round with the Virtual Arcade, Wii Ware and so on, i'd like to see games like Street Fighter Arcade, Final Fight Arcade and Marvel vs Capcom being released along with the SNES versions. Hopefully this will happen somewhere down the line.

Slightly puzzeld why more people would want to see N64 games on the Wii U Virtual console then Dreamcast. The Nintendo N64 was a decent system and being that it's already on Wii it's the more likely to be added but i think the addition of Dreamast and Gamecube games would be a step up and would bring more attention to the Wii U.

Game-Over commented on Review: Super Punch-Out!! (Wii U eShop / Super...:

Off topic but as a matter of interest is the Wii Classic Pro Controller still available in the shops, many Wii games and virtual console games can't be played properly or at all without one. Their seems to be no real point in even transferring old virtual consoles games to the Wii U without the old classic wii controller.
