Hy8ogen commented on Wii U Reference Discovered In Call of Duty: Ad...:

Personally I don't understand the hate that surrounds COD. I freaking love the franchise. However I will not buy this new instalment on the Wii U. I got burned twice by both BO2 and Ghosts for not having DLC. Despite what people say, DLC is essential for the full COD experience. Especially the Zombie/Extinction mode.

Unless this new game will be getting DLC (which I seriously doubt), I will not be buying this game for the Wii U. Titanfall and Alliance of Valiant Arms on my PC is enough to keep my FPS itch scratched.



Hy8ogen commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@kobashi100 Reality of what situation exactly? Your own insight and emotional thoughts are not facts, so stop treating like they are. Until the games come out and the sales numbers are published, we have no concrete proof about anything. The games may increase the hardware sales and they might not. Time will tell.

I still vaguely remember there was a so called "gaming analysts" whom predicted Mario Kart 8 will only sell 2 million units at March 2015. Guess what? That guy just made a complete joke out of himself.



Hy8ogen commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

@midnafanboy You owe me a broken keyboard and a monitor spilled with coke.

Not trying to defend Nintendo or anything but we hardly know what the QOL platform is or even does, and you guys are already dishing out judgement on the thing? Seriously, people nowadays just doesn't think twice before passing a judgement.



Hy8ogen commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@PokeTune Nintendo's current situation is by no means "pitiful" compared to Sony. As for the console race (which I hardly give a damn about), you can only predict but only time will tell. Ever heard of the "Tortoise and the Hare" story? The PS4 could come in last place, you'll never know what'll happen in the future.

All 3 systems have big titles coming soon, it'll be interesting to see how they fare.



Hy8ogen commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@PokeTune I'm sorry, but I think 160k vs 510k can be well defined as "getting better". That's almost 320% more than last years Q1. I think Nintendo or some folks on here are probably being too optimistic. However I do agree Nintendo still posting a lost is a bit sad.



Hy8ogen commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

I miss the directs. But this new direction seems to be working better. Maybe they should have directs when there is something big going on instead of the monthly one. Quality>Quantity, isn't that Nintendo is all about?

I myself, LOVED the Nintendo Digital Live event. That showcase was phenomenal. It was a good 40 minutes for my wife and I.



Hy8ogen commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

@midnafanboy Capcom is not doing well, but not that bad that they need to sell themselves. They still made decent profit last year. Back to topic, Nintendo buying one of their IPs, maybe. But purchasing Capcom entirely is nothing but a dream son. Nintendo/Capcom collabs and partnership is way better.

Just so you understand, I want Nintendo and Capcom to forge a relationship like the relationship Nintendo and Platinum Game has. Nintendo funds the project, they make the game and let Nintendo publish it. Bayonetta 2 and The Wonderful 101 was dead until Nintendo decides to fund them. This way, Nintendo gets exclusives titles to market the Wii U and the developers get to earn some serious cash even if the game doesn't sell well. It's a win-win. Buying out Capcom is only a win for the shareholders at Capcom and a ginormous uncertainty for Nintendo.



Hy8ogen commented on Review: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Wii U):

@TreesenHauser I picked this game up for 15 bucks last week and I'm pretty sad that I didn't pick it up EARLIER!! This game is awesome! I was doubting at first due to all the negative post in the comment section, but decided to give it a go for 15 dollars.

After 16 hours, I can vouch that this game plays beautifully and the controls are pretty tight!(All you need is some practice and the controls is so much better than AC3). For the naysayers out there, I don't know which game you are playing, but the AC4 I'm playing is not the game you guys are describing at all. There is rarely any frame rate drops, graphics are simply gorgeous (apart from the leaves, they look 1998), the gameplay is SO FUN, and I have no issues in free running at all (maybe you should practice instead of blaming the controls for your newb skillz? Just sayin).

Overall, 8/10 is the correct score for this game. The 2 deduction comes from the ugly leaves (I mean seriously, what's with the leaves?), the occasional shadow "jaggy" in cutscenes, occasional glitchy combat when boarding huge boats and the lack of DLC. Otherwise, solid game and I would totally recommend it to people who are still on the fence.



Hy8ogen commented on Disney Infinity Guardians Of The Galaxy Playse...:

@rjejr IIRC, the PS4 only has about up to 3~5GB (can't remember the actual numbers) of RAM to run/process the games, and lets not forget the Wii U also has the eDRAM to work with. I got to be honest with you, I'm not a tech guy so I don't really know the significance of those numbers/stuff. These are just purely my own speculations based on my limited electronics knowledge.

Personally I think it is unfair to compare those realistic games to Mario Kart 8 though. However there is going to be one game that we can know for sure the actual gap between these systems and that game is Project Cars. I would be a fool to claim the Wii U's version will look as good as the Ps4 version. But I'm certainly confident the difference won't be huge.



Hy8ogen commented on Disney Infinity Guardians Of The Galaxy Playse...:

Is anyone still surprised by this? I mean come on, these devs are not going to spend a whole bunch of coins to make a standalone Wii U version. It makes more sense to just port the 360 version of the game since they have similar architectures.

@rjejr The Wii U's performance gap between the other 2 consoles is not as large as you think. Yes both systems have juiced up specs but do note that x86 is inefficient. From what I read around, the PS4 is already suffering from bottle-necking. So yeah. With more work the Wii U version can definitely look closer to the PS4/Xbone version, but is it financially viable? Probably not.



Hy8ogen commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

@andrea987 I laughed way too hard on your comment. Kudos to you bro.

I personally find the game okay. It's not superb, but not bad either. It has it's certain charm to it and my wife loves it so much she neglected her Animal Crossing and Disney Magical World for a while now. So yeah the game certainly has its ways on certain demographic.

To people who are like, "I don't get this hype", "This game has nothing to do and no content except writing songs", "How is this even a game" etc, you folks have no idea what you're talking about. This game has ALOT to do and things to unlock. The Streetpass feature is also pretty neat. It is certainly a game that is worth the price tag. You kinda have to play the game to appreciate it.

I'm not a big Sim person (I only play Harvest Moon for sims), but I find this game pretty fun.



Hy8ogen commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@AdmiralThrawn You sir are a complete joke. Both PSN and XBL requires a subscription fee while Nintendo club does not require a single cent. Furthermore, once you terminate your PS+ and XBL subscription, your so called Free games goes away as well. Comparing Club Nintendo with PS+/XBL is plain stupidity.

Secondly, calling Splatoon and Miyamoto horse feces? Splatoon is critically acclaimed all over the internet as the next big thing and even Shuhei Yoshida himself even complimented Nintendo for making that game. If you want to troll, at least try harder.

Oh and don't bother to reply as I will completely ignore you. I don't usually reply to trolls, but your previous post kind of struck a nerve.

@Spartacus3765 Sounds like a solid plan! I'm currently torn between DK and G&W...hmmmmm



Hy8ogen commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@Spartacus3765 And your opinion is absolutely fine. They have better bonuses in the past and I'm disappointed that this years pales in comparison. I understand that, I really do. People have expectations, and people get disappointed.

However I am more than thrilled! This is my first year as a Plat and I'm getting DK 3DS! That is a whopping 30 dollar game reward for just BUYING video games! Yeah I don't get the limited physical items my friends got previously, but a 30 dollar game is still pretty awesome!

What I don't get is the people that is getting so riled up and upset over this. People, this is a rewards program, and IT IS FREE. Stop feeling so entitled to everything. Honestly.
