This game looks excellent, I've always wondered why action or sprawling stories never come about when the main protagonist is in major need of a toilet break. But this game answers that, and lets you play through the ensuing toilet terror.

Anyone else wondering if the release dates are separated as wii u is getting mario kart and Nintendo want to get every bit of mileage (pun intended) out of that before smash comes out and on top of that, it should also help the Wii U versions sales not be reduced further by people who own both Wii U and 3DS choosing the 3DS version?

I'm still waiting for castlevania 2 on wii u here in the uk. This is my all time favourite series and am hoping all NES, PC engine, SNES, N64, GBA and DS iterations are released so I can have them all in one place, would be nice to get SotN too, but can never see that happening.

Surely after Nintendo bought so many shares back earlier this year that between Iwata, Miyamoto and Nintendo the good guys have the majority share? I would assume then Iwata will either be fine or they will use their majority to put someone in place who wouldn't go mobile.

Saw this advertised on pc last week, now i'm even more excited its coming to the U! I think Ninty should try and get Overgrowth up and on the eshop its a totally mental fighting game, where woodland creatures use medieval weaponry in free for all and team combat. It features instant death and some really funny rag doll physics where throwing spears into rabbits becomes disturbingly hilarious.

Fair enough it seems to be a bit of an indie ruled expo and Ninty have nothing new to show yet. But they could have showcased those 50 unity titles and gotten more indies on board with the Wii U just because of their showing a positive attitude towards putting a spotlight on smaller games?!

@Caryslan I think most people on these pages could see you were being objective you shouldn't have to defend your opinion. I am an early adopter of the wii u (day one) and that drought this time last year was super sh!t, thank goodness for monster hunter. I'm currently thinking about getting a ps4 after the morpheus and gakai/psNow announcements it's looking promising. It's a pain when a new gen kicks off, a lot of waiting and speculation, about two years from now everyone's going to be shouting about it being the best generation ever again.

@gatorboi352 I was under the impression that the system can actually use two gamepad controllers but no games have been made yet that would facilitate buying two (and they don't sell a second one) http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/05/nintendo-two-wii-u-gamepads-will-work-on-one-system/
I think shigsy had even said at some point last year that Ninty would be looking at making use of two gamepads once they were being sold in all territories.

ICHIkatakuri commented on Unepic Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U:

@Dark-Link73
I have only played up to the first proper boss, but so far some funny pop culture refs, a large looking world from the hub and a decent loot and levelling system. The mechanics are basic but fun with some potion making and plenty of weapons on offer already. The visuals too can be basic but have some nice effects from time to time and remind me of SNES era rpgs. It plays like a 2D diablo (so far) where you're really only required to push one button to mash your axe or sword into the enemies while downing potions for buffs, but it could be just as addictive as more traditional loot grinders too.

ICHIkatakuri commented on Unepic Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U:

I bought this first day, but haven't had too much time to get into it properly, just finishing deus ex first then it will be my main game. I am exceedingly happy that support is ongoing for the title as it really looks like a great one from what I have played.

ICHIkatakuri commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

@Peek-a-boo I have played The Last of Us and it was a good story but one which falls into many videogame pitfalls as it has to allow for gameplay. I doubt Mario 3D World was up against it in many (if any) categories? For me though neither of the above will probably be the first game that leaves my lips when talking about current and.past gen, that would probably go to demon/dark souls.
@Honelith again that's what demon/dark souls does for me it's not the violence that makes it compelling, it the immediate fear of possible violence you would rather avoid.

@IxnayontheCK like the last post there are about 2000 players on a good night but a few game modes seem to be supported, not all of them, but infected, tdm, domination, kill confirmed and free for all usually have substantial enough lobbies to get a game. Likewise I have never failed to get in a lobby of invasion either so it does have a bit more variety than blogs 2 managed.

This made me smile to read, I have been.in the same situation here in the UK chasing the almighty money god. Given it up now and have gone back to uni to become a biologist rather than a Web designing accountant lol. Though I personally loved the first DKC it wasn't the best game to me or the one that got me through my childhood hardships. That crown goes to the Zelda series, always struck a chord with my imagination a bit more than any other franchise.

I was a big fan of laputa when I was little and got my auntie (who lived in Japan) to import me this and robo aleste as well as a dragon Ball z barcode battler, my god that was a great summer! Was good to find out I could get round the region lock of my Megadrive by shaving the cart slots hard edges off and making the Japanese cart fit. Needless to say I'm looking forward to having this on the 3DS

I would love them to do a first person f-zero or star fox, other than that it would be nice to see them finish Raven Blade. Not happy about the news they've only been working.on something since November though, had thought that as DK wasn't some huge leap in game physics or AI since wii it would have been made by only a portion of the team at retro and the rest would be surprising us with something at E3.
