Game-Over commented on Feature: Breaking Down Ryu's Moves and How He'...:

shonenjump86...Yeah the voice is a little off putting, i much prefer the old Street Fighter 2 2D sounds and visuals but i do like the way they have done Ryu's stage here. With Ryu being added in maybe Capcom might start releasing a little bit more of there library on the Wii U.

Game-Over commented on Feature: Breaking Down Ryu's Moves and How He'...:

Being a big Street Fighter fan it's great to see Ryu in Super Smash Bros, even though I'm not a fan of the current 3D graphical style in Street Fighter 4 and 5 i do like the way Ryu has been done here especially his stage, some of the screen shots have a nice retro look to them.

Game-Over commented on Capcom Is Bringing The Nintendo Exclusive Resi...:

If a classic games company like Capcom aren't supporting ur system then i think this news is exposing the Wii U's limitations and there not technical ones. The situation with the Wii U is like buying a Sony MP3 player and finding out that the only music u can play on it is music that was released on the Sony label, in a way this is what has been done with the Wii U. Nintendo have quietly made the Wii U a Nintendo only console, and while i like games like Mario Kart and Punch Out i think it's unfair that alternative choice and variety is being so obviously denied with the VC and eShop. I like Nintendo consoles, there games and the great history they have in the gaming industry that's kind of why u stick with them but being that the VC was one of the major reasons i bought the Wii U I'm justifiably disappointed with there approach this time around, being that a lot of the games i want to download (many of them third party ones) just aren't there and then finding out that there never likely to be. Whatever the problem is or not, technical or otherwise Nintendo seem to be in no hurry to enlighten anyone as to what the issue is, or why these games are not coming to Wii U.

Game-Over commented on Capcom Is Bringing The Nintendo Exclusive Resi...:

If you have an Xbox 1 or PS4 to go with your Wii U ur probably not too disappointed by this news but if the Wii U is the only next gen console u have then the whole lack of third party games situation is getting pretty infuriating. The third party support is slowly becoming non existent, in a way this news should be kind of stunning being the Wii U is a next gen console but it's almost expected now.

kind of knew that these games wouldn't make it to the Wii U, a pretty consistent theme Is developing here, there's obviously a fairly major problem there with 3rd party support on the eShop and VC that's not going to get resolved this gen. Classic games like this should be an absolute cert for a next gen dedicated games console like the Wii U but for some reason your more likely to be playing these games on your mobile phone then then the Wii U .

Game-Over commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

Interesting article, I like nostalgia and I like to collect games especially the retro stuff but it is difficult to keep all those consoles and games in order not to mention the peripherals that come with them. I became very much a digital consumer when I bought the Wii, the original VC was and still is great, i'm surprised to hear that the games I downloaded could be made redundant. I mainly downloaded games for the PS3 too on PSN but I didn't get the same sense of ownership that I got with the Wii VC, that's why I went with the Wii U instead of a next gen Sony or Xbox. I was hoping that Wii U would be the one stop shop for retro game collecting I was looking for like a Wii and a PS3 all rolled up in one (as the original Wii had it's limitations) but it hasn't quite turned out like that. I think most people just want one console that they can put everything on like a big reliable MP3 player and have some sense of ownership of that collection, that's the dream.

Nintendo have done a good job of making a large part of there archive of games and systems available on the Wii U but it's unfair that they have quietly chosen to pretty much ignore 3rd party classics this time around. It surprises me that more people don't have an issue with this, most people must have more then one console.

Grumblevolcano...That could be true, maybe it is out of Nintendo's control but the Wii U is a very all things Nintendo console this time around. There just isn't the same kind of overall choice that was there with the original Wii, regardless of the lack of consoles there's no real arcade games coming either. The Virtual arcade has been forgotten, i thought with the more powerful Wii U this was something they would really expand on but they have pretty much given up on it.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (Europe):

Being that the original Wii VC was like a one stop shop for retro gamers it was thought that Wii U would improve on this service and really expand the retro experience but for the most part disappointingly that just hasn't been the case. Nintendo are understandably going to put there own games and systems first but to be so rigid about it to the point that it basically shuts the door on many great games coming to the Wii U VC is frustrating. Nintendo do so many things well so hopefully this might change with the release of the NX console..

Swords and Soldiers 2 is a nice looking game but like with so many other weeks the Wii U VC and eShop releases just don't really excite, the variety and choice just isn't there like it was with Wii VC. The lack of third party games, consoles and arcade classics just narrows the choice of games to the point of there being no real suspense at what's going to be released, it's clear now that a certain library of games is being offered and that's it.

Really like the retro look of Horizon Chase, I actually prefer that there keeping the visuals quite simple , the visuals on 90's Arcade Racer are a little over done, there's almost too much going on. Hopefully these games make it to the the Wii U VC.

Yeah like most I would love to see more racing games coming to the Wii U,. why are Nintendo holding back these types of games for the Virtual Console, there's definitely room for them, outside of Mario Kart there's not a whole lot to choose from.

The VC is being discussed a lot this week and here today we see the problem yet again there is very little on offer for the Wii U, there's simply a lack of games, variety and choice.

I think the pricing is ok there just needs to be more choice, Nintendo has a great catalogue of games but variety is the spice of life and there's a serious lack of third party games. The old Wii was almost a one stop shop for retro gamers it had so many different games and consoles, it's the main reason I bought a Wii U but unfortunately it hasn't been improved upon. The Wii U VC isn't bad but it's just not as good as I hoped it would be.

It's great that the Virtual Console is being discussed. I wouldn't like a subscription type service, I actually like downloading individual games as is. Wouldn't be interested in bundles either, it's kind of like buying an album when all you want is one particular song. The virtual console has failed to excite me this time around, like many I'd like to see more games from different consoles, there's a lot games that I would love to download that just aren't there for download and may never be. More variety is needed.

Although many Wii owners will probably have a copy of Punch Out ! i never got around to purchasing it on the Wii so i am actually happy, yes happy to see this coming to the Wii U and that's definitely not something you can say every week when it comes to the eShop and Virtual Console.

Game-Over commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

Maybe the orginal Wii is to blame for all this, we had so much variety and choice with the Wii that it kind of it spoiled us and gave some of us a somewhat unrealistic expectation of what was going to become available on the Wii U. Maybe the bar does needs to be set a bit lower but more alternative choice is still needed.

Game-Over commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

Nintendo just don't seem to want any kind of real competition with there games this time around, it's like if u want a racing game there's Mario Kart and the alternative is ''90's Arcade Racer'' a game which few know much about and has yet to be released. 90's Arcade Racer is just a simple example, Indie games can be great but are Nintendo embracing alternative indie games like 90's Arcade racer because they know it can't really compete with there own product and are they ignoring the third party games because they know they can. Mario Bros, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, Zelda, Metroid are great games but surely there has to be some solid alternatives to these games too. It would nice to be able to play a game like Super Smash Bros and have the option to play a game like Marvel vs Capcom as well on the same system, that's what a lot of people want but will that ever happen with the Wii U. It's understandable that Wii U is going to be a mostly Nintendo machine but some third party classics would be nice along with the Indie games. Games are missing on the eShop and VC, games that should be on a next gen home console, a feed of GBA titles every week isn't sufficient. More choice is needed.

Game-Over commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

The Wii U VC and eShop do have some good games but it could be better and after 2 years it should be better. The Wii U is too much of a Nintendo only machine, arcade games like Dungeons and Dragons and old classics like Another World have been released but it just doesn't happen enough. We wait around for games like 90's arcade racer to released when there is already a ton of great arcade type racers out there that just aren't being released for download.

Game-Over commented on Interview: Nintendo's Damon Baker on the eShop...:

People buy Nintendo consoles and games because they make good products, the Wii U is no exception but the VC is lacking. Releasing handheld even mobile type games is a bit frustrating when it's a next gen home console, all of this would be tolerable if the odd arcade classic was thrown in once a month but that's not happening. Your more likely to see a mobile phone type game like Angry birds for download then say a Arcade type game like Marvel vs Capcom. Too many games are being aimed at the gamepad, there small screen type games. Like that there is nothing wrong with the gamepad or handheld games there just needs to be more of a balance.

SonsofBelichick, Joey302...Yeah every week i'm hoping that something might change but it doesn't and there's no real change in sight. The NES, SNES and GBA are solid consoles with good games but that can't be it can it , surely something else needs to be added. I get the feeling though by what's being released for download that if they do actually add another console to the VC it will probably be another handheld i'm thinking original Gameboy, it really would not surprise me. Were probably more likely to see Gameboy then Gamecube.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

The Gamepad was a nice idea and there's nothing wrong with GBA games but there needs to be more Arcade and home console alternatives for the Wii U VC. GBA games are a cute alternative but u can't take the Wii U with you on the bus, they are handheld games made for mobile use that's why there is a 3DS. Taking the VC Arcade and other alternative consoles out of the equation and adding GBA has not improved the VC experience.

I like Castlevania and Ghouls and Ghosts but the Wii U VC releases seem to becoming more and more about handheld and mobile type versions of games. You don't buy a Wii U to play handheld games thats what the DS is for, i don't want the handheld version of an arcade classic i want the arcade version to play on a HD TV, that's what home consoles are supposed to be for.

Nintendo seems to think that they have something for everybody with there library of games and while they can tick a lot of boxes no one company can tick them all. It's understandable that Nintendo wants to support there own product but reducing alternative choice is never a good thing.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Remains Silent on Third Party Wii Gam...:

Nintendo has many great games but the variety and just sheer choice of games that third party support brings is badly needed for the VC and eShop. The Wii U is a good console with some solid Nintendo titles but there needs to be some alternatives added it can't just be all about one brand, Wii U owners are missing out on some great games from alternative games makers that would be undoubtedly downloaded if they were made available.

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

With the variety and choice of games that were available on the original Wii VC it was thought (even expected) that the Wii U VC would be a retro game collectors holy grail, a one stop shop, It hasn't quite worked out that way though. If your a lover of all things Nintendo the Wii U is probably the best console ever, if ur a gamer though who likes a little bit of everything ur going to be a little bit left out this time around. While the Wii U with it's VC and eShop are good it could definitely be better, the orginal Wii VC showed us that already, all it takes is a little more choice. The Wii U should at least try to be that one stop shop, i like Nintendo but GBA on a home console is not enough, it's 2015.

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

Nothing particularly wrong with this weeks offerings, some cute colorful games to be had but it's becoming frustrating though that ur more likely to see a GBA game for download then a full blown arcade classic. Games like Marvel vs Capcom and Street Fighter 3 that were available for download on last gen consoles still haven't appeared on Wii U, playing GBA games is cool but the Wii U is a home console, there are so many great games that i would download if only they were made available on the VC or eShop. The Wii U VC just seems more and more to be directed at handheld gamers, why is Nintendo trying to turn the Wii U into a semi Gameboy. Nintendo already has a load of handheld systems why can't they let the Wii U be a home system. that's what it was supposed to be.

joey302, @Quorthon...Totally agree with what ur saying, i have big no issue with games like 90's arcade racer but like that it's an imitation of games that came out 15 to 20 years ago why are the original games not on the VC alredy, why is there so little variety in this genre of games and racing games as a whole on the Wii U, outside of Mario Kart there's no decent alternatives, that should not be the case at this stage. There's plenty of games that i would gladly buy but there not there to be bought.

People have been waiting quite a while now for a 90's arcade racer to be released, a game that takes inspiration from original arcade racers like Daytona USA and Ridge Racer, but why are these original games and games like them not making there way to the Wii U, wasn't that what the virtual console was supposed to be about. The original Wii had some classic arcade games for download as did the Playstation and Xbox why have Nintendo practically given up on this with the Wii U.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

Nintendo systems are quality as are there games but there's arguably too much focus now on nintendo product with the Wii U, it's understandable of course but the lack of alternative choice in whats available is becoming more and more evident. That choice that was there with the original Wii is missing with the Wii U, the selection of alternative systems and games in the virtual console is gone even the virtual arcade has been all but forgotten about, Nintendo's idea of expanding on the retro virtual console experience was to discard every non nintendo console and add the GBA . Limiting the amount of choice is a bad thing and it's hurt the Wii U virtual console, over 2 years in and it's still mainly a diet of nes, snes and gba, as good as those systems and there games are it's become somewhat predictable, surely more systems need to be added, Nintendo or otherwise.

Game-Over commented on Video: 90's Arcade Racer Is Still Alive, And H...:

It's a decent attempt at imitating a particular genre of racer but it's not the most polished looking game. The game ls colourful and it's makes the right noises but on closer inspection it seems to lack substance but beggars can't be choosers and apart from Mario Kart there is not that many decent racing games on the Wii U. Nintendo's focus seems just to be on Nintendo made games and while that's understandable it does mean that variety is a little lacking, Mario Kart is great but surely other decent racers from the past and present could be made available. 90's racer is a well intentioned but pretty mediocre looking game, it says a lot about the selection of racers that are currently available on the Wii U that people are still waiting for it be released.

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 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.

Game-Over commented on Nintendo Download: 12th June (Europe):

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.

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

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.
