ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Highlights 'Nindies' and Their Games ...:

Loving some of the Indy games I have on the Wii U, I would much rather sit at the TV rather than the PC and play these games. Going to play expo this weekend, hopefully there will be a decent Nintendo showing again this year.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (North America):

Loving Hyrule warriors here in the UK, been kicking back with it all week and being a warriors fan and a zelda nut it's probably one of my favorite games on the system. So easy to lose a few hours to it :)
Looking forward to all the US readers getting their hands on it



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

There are about of people throwing some hate at the new 3DS. I personally don't think it's something that is meant to be a quick cash maker, but instead think it's meant to increase the life of the current hardware model. I am a believer in Nintendo fusing both of their hardware divisions into one release for the next gen but the public would be expecting a new handheld announcement next year. With the new 3DS this expectation could be put back a while until they're ready to talk about the successor to wii u and 3DS and in theory Nintendo could test the remote play for certain games to be released soon for Wii u. It's a shrewd move and I'm buying into it.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Review: KickBeat: Special Edition (Wii U eShop):

Not big on nu metal, it was always too cheesey for me in the first place that I don't think I could play a game with it playing constantly. If I could play my own tracks then it would be a different deal! I played through reign in blood through vib ribbons ability to play any disk back on the psone.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Kart 64:

Every year, me and my friends get together from all over the country to play some old video games, reminisce and go out for a drink. Without a doubt every time this occurs, Mario Kart 64 will see some decent play time. Not as much as Goldeneye, but for me and my friends its at that level of multiplayer simplicity that makes it still fun to play 17 years on.

Oh and I seem to be the only person on the planet who didn't really like DKR, which had too much going on for new people or non gamers to appreciate what was happening, though technically a better game it lost something compared Mario Kart in my opinion. I loved to play games with anyone who would give it a try and got some of my friends into gaming, but at the time if they didn't "get it" immediately, then it was never seen again during multiplayer sessions. Mickeys Speedway is better than DKR :)



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (Europe):

Hyrule Warriors for me.


I have recieved an email from Amazon yesterday regarding my preorder of Bayonetta 2. Amazon UK originally advertised the normal edition as coming with a physical copy of the remastered Bayonetta 1 game too (which we know now is not the case), but have upgraded my order to be the special edition for the same price. I am now getting the special edition Bayonetta 2 for £31.97



ICHIkatakuri commented on Catch Up on All the Bayonetta 2 Direct Videos ...:

OOOOOOOOoooo It just keeps looking better and better, wish it hadn't taken the best part of 2 years to get my hands on it but not much longer now. Going to be getting the Bayonetta 1 and 2 box, dont have my XBOX to play the original on anymore anyway.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

Been looking forward to this for a while now and though I have it on 3DS, I am going all out and support this port by buying it again for Wii U. Games which show so much charm and instant appeal such as this are few and far between. I hope these guys have a long career in game development.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Fifa 15 Coming to Wii and 3DS on the 26th of S...:

I have only ever bought pro evo and as that game doesn't rely on actual FIFA endorsed rosters or teams, I dont feel the need to get a new one every year. And for me at least it always played better than FIFA anyway, with little chance of finishing games with scores as high as 13 goals like FIFA seems to be capable of. I am hopeful we will nget a Pro Evo Wii U Game soon



ICHIkatakuri commented on Play & Win: Join the UK Mario Kart 8 Champions...:

Well I didn't finish my full 16, think I got to 117 by the end of my 10th race and thought better of trying to beat the rest of these guys who were too good. One race I was really mad with! Mario Kart has always made me invent new swear word combinations but honestly I had one round on Grumble Volcano (which I hate anyway) and all I got were coins and single mushrooms, from every item box. I was in 10th at one point and it gave me coins..............needless to say I'm thankful my TV is still alive.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Play & Win: The UK Mario Kart 8 Championship, ...:

Registered and will try to give it a go, but like 123akis says, I'm not good enough to hit the top 3. Some of the players out there are insanely good :)

On a side note any news on whether PES15 is actually coming to Wii U? I always preferred PES to FIFA as games in PES never end 10-10 more like 3-4 which is at least a bit more realistic.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Video: Impa and a Naginata Mean Bad News For G...:

This game has always been a day one buy for me but this video has got me now waiting impatiently for its release. The chaps at w-force have given the animations, backgrounds and character models so much attention since E3 even that it's really starting to look like it will be a bit of a beautiful game and those moves will make you feel like a bad ass.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

I love Zelda 2 but probably because I haven't played it much since its original release. OoT on the other hand, though I appreciate what it means for the franchise and remember how I felt the first time I played it, I have played it to death and couldn't care any more if I never see it again. If Ninty ever make a Skyward sword HD I hope they tone Fi down too as she just ruined a lot of that game not letting me solve the puzzles myself or just simply talking about the stuff I had picked up for the first time...........every time you loaded your game.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Play & Win: Join The Grid for The UK Mario Kar...:

@Grumblevolcano it's sad that there is always someone trying to take advantage and not actually willing to get credit for being actually decent at something. I used to enjoy playing cod on the 360 until it got really easy to find hacked lobbies and you could even get your account banned for accidentally finding one.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Play & Win: Join The Grid for The UK Mario Kar...:

Ooooo scandal, I didn't know that last one went off with such controversy. It's good you guys have managed to organise another though I'm sure cheating will occur wherever competition does. I know a lad that cheats at warhammer against his friends on friendly match nights, some people just want to kudos so much they don't care how it's achieved. Very sad :-(



ICHIkatakuri commented on New Fatal Frame Will Be Spooking The Wii U In ...:

@Ralek85 I don't think it will set the world on fire or even think that people who buy into the wii u will necessarily buy a new copy of the game. But after Christmas, or throughout next year when someone thinks "I really fancy playing #insert Nintendo first part game list here# but don't want to buy a console for that/those games alone". Extras like this, bayonetta, wonderful 101, devils 3rd are going to help sway people.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Video: This Hyrule Warriors Trailer Shows Off ...:

@arnoldlayne83 It basically is, have you ever played a warriors game? They are basic in premise and the mobs often don't provide a challenge, instead being a combo extending or XP farming tool. As you play you'll be given areas on the map which need to be given help or tasks which need to be completed like breaking down a wall or killing a general and that's where the meat of the game lies, you could totally ignore all of the basic baddies if you wanted, though you might get swamped on occasion in the later levels. It sounds rubbish, but playing them can become addictive, especially in multiplayer and I bet everything we have seen so far will be from the first couple of stages, themselves part of a large story with multiple paths depending on the character you play as.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Video: This Hyrule Warriors Trailer Shows Off ...:

The diversity of the characters seen so far has been great, really looking forward to seeing what tingle can do and my god I want that scarf! I know he's he hero of time but the digital clock is a bit of a rubbish pack-in, it just looks a bit cheap.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Shigeru Miyamoto States There Are "A Few" Zeld...:

@Nintenjoe64 Totally! I loved how the first two games dumped you in a world and gave you not much other than a sword, the onus was totally on you to make the adventure. Zelda is still a top quality series but that feeling of crafting your own story and surviving a brutal world within a certain set of basic rules doesn't exist outside of the souls series, which is probably it's so popular. I think I got stuck on something stupid playing skyward sword because I refused to hear fi anymore and I died once on the last boss fight.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Highlights Hundreds of Developers Wor...:

Back in the GC days some third party devs had hits on the system as they could afford to make exclusive games for each console going. The number of exclusive games from big developers on any platform has dwindled since that generation and I totally understand that if a company is going to invest heavily on new Dev kits for the most powerful consoles or pc rigs then it's going to put it's eggs in those baskets. Since the N64, Nintendo has rode on the quality titles it produces in house to sell consoles and as the sole reason to own a Nintendo machine is to play their games, not for multiplatform ports. With the amount of interest these days into low budget titles and the support Nintendo has given to indie developers, the wait between first party titles isn't such a chore. The added bonus of a very few top quality multiplat or exclusive 3rd party games (e.g. Mh3u) makes the wii u my system of choice. I just wish the VC would speed up with its releases and think Nintendo could do a lot to sort it's dashboard increasing exposure to indie titles without relying on a constant barrage of adverts.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Review: Monkey Pirates (Wii U eShop):

@Pod I totally agree the last few years of my xbox360's time under the telly was spent totally on the live arcade games available. Trials HD, Super Meat Boy, Limbo, Iron Brigade, Splosion man and fez are examples of innovation no developer of full priced games was willing to take. Nintendo did the right thing courting indie devs early on, it swayed me to buy my Wii u day one! Now we are beginning to see these games completed en mass, hell even I'm trying to make one the Wii u is that exciting to me :)



ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Scoops Three "Best Of E3" Game Critic...:

@outburst I was the same but after watching it and reading more, evolve looks like an fps monster hunter. The catch though is that the monster might be a human player and the longer it evades capture, eating lesser beasts, the more it evolves getting bigger and stronger and then becoming the hunter itself. I think it looks good, but then I loved turtle rocks other game (left 4 dead) too.



ICHIkatakuri commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

I wonder if EA would have won the worst company in america again this year had they dropped this bomb before the vote? Meh, it means not a lot to me, I only like burnout which they don't seem to want to make anymore and battlefield which has been steadily r@ped of all identity since bad company 2 so wasn't looking forward to the next one.



ICHIkatakuri commented on Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique A...:

I couldn't care less about wether or not a game is violent or not before I decide to buy it, but I do care about online action or shooters. I like to kick back with a bit of an online action game when the kids and the Mrs have long gone to sleep. I don't get that on wii u regularly without playing cod, so more choice is welcome.
