Imerion commented on Mario Party 10 Shows Decent Stamina in Second ...:

Nice to hear it does well! While I would have liked a few more boards, it's my favorite entry in the series this far. Bowser mode and it's co-op gameplay was amazingly fun and will be played on many parties to come. Standard gameplay is great too; I especially liked that there are so many fun events around the boards, like all attractions in the fairground, etc.



Imerion commented on Nintendo Confirms New 3DS eShop Shooter IronFa...:

Also glad this is still on track. There are way to few action games for 3DS. It's a genre I like, and many of the ones that have been released have worked really well. I also really really hope this will have single-cart (or single download, I guess) multiplayer. Would be soo awesome to try that multiplayer. I might be able to get six persons with 3DS:es together, but without such a mode I won't get all of them to have the game...



Imerion commented on Watch: Catch Up With the North American, Europ...:

Soo hyped and happy now! Loads of good stuff this time, including a lot of surprises! My gaming future looks great indeed!

Just unhappy about one thing, that Pokémon puzzler. Why did they have to make it a stupid freemium, pay-to-win affair. Nintendo has stood up against that kind of crap for so long, and I really hope they will stay focused on providing good quality games for a decent cost, instead of crap games for zero cost (+ very high cost if you actually want to play it...)
Sorry, a bit angry there. But I can't help feeling the whole App Store-mentality is ruining more and more of the gaming world every day. A low one-time payment, or at least an option to buy the entire game for a higher sum like in Steel Diver feels much more honest.
Either way, it's just one title for the moment. As far as the big ones stay far out of this territory, I won't complain more. :)



Imerion commented on Undead Storm Nightmare Will Bring The Zombie A...:

Great news! I really liked the original and played it a lot in multi. Combination of four player co-op and cheap prize made a few of my friends get it, so we didnt even need download play, which is otherwise a must since we rarely have the same games.



Imerion commented on Interview: Shin'en Multimedia on FAST Racing N...:

So hyped for this! Loved the original and have played it loads. Also those screens look stunning! Hope we'll see more soon.
Thanks for putting so much time into this and making it for Wii U!

By the way, how many players will this be? Any chance of 5 players with four on the tv and one on the gamepad? I had hoped Mario Kart 8 would have that, but since it didn't my hope turned to other Wii U racers. ;)



Imerion commented on Video: Footage Surfaces of Cancelled Wii Star ...:

I really wish this would have been released! Would have bought it twice. Was so amazing on GC and this looks even better.

Also, I really liked Force Unleashed for the Wii, including the motion controls. It really nailed immersion without compromising advanced gameplay. Played it several times and would love a third one.



Imerion commented on Video: Aqua Moto Racing Utopia Footage Breaks ...:

I think this looks both good and fun. If they can pull this off in 4 player multi, or even better, 5 player, then this could be really good. Also, the video says tech demo, so perhaps additional tweaks to physics and such will be made to make things feel more realistic and water-ish. :)



Imerion commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Im very curious about the tutorials included. How extensive are they? Is it only to explain the rules are do they go into various strategies, openings, etc?



Imerion commented on Aqua Moto Racing Utopia Splashing Onto The Wii...:

Awesome news this! I actually mailed Zordix about a Wii U version of this after playing and enjoying the 3DS version, and now they actually have one on the way. Maybe I should mail more developers about Wii U versions of games Id like to see. :)



Imerion commented on Review: Aqua Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop):

I see. Very interesting information, though I'm sad it would be so complicated. But hopefully this game will sell well, or you get some investors for another game. :)
Also, thanks for the answers. One thing I really like about this page is that sometimes developers stop by and answer questions. :)



Imerion commented on Review: Aqua Moto Racing 3D (3DS eShop):

Just bought this, even though the score here was a bit low. Used to play games from the Saturn/Playstation era, so I don't usually have problems with some slowdown. No new game ever gets even close to how choppy some of those old games were. :) And if it is a problem, playing with 3D off seems to help. Still, an update with some optimizations to help these problems would be nice.
That, or that Wii U-version mentioned a few days ago. That would be too good to be true! ;)



Imerion commented on Aqua Moto Racing 3D Developer Keen to Bring it...:

I'd really love to see this on Wii U! Will download the 3DS version any day now, since I've really been craving for something Wave Race-like for a while after playing Wii Sports Resort. The fact that it has Download Play makes me want it even more. A very awesome addition. I'll think I'll get my 3DS now and download it.

Anyway, nice to hear them want to support Nintendo platforms. As said, Aqua Moto Racing for Wii U, with splitscreen support, would be a blast at gaming nights! :)



Imerion commented on Developer Interview: Shin'en Multimedia on the...:

FAST: Racing League for Wii U stands far at the top on my wanted list for eshop. I really hope that is what is on the way! Then again, I guess any type of racing game (or any game for that matter) from Shin'en will be fantastic! Can't wait to hear more!



Imerion commented on Activision Comes Out in Support of Circle Pad ...:

For most FPS games, I don't feel this is necessary. I really liked aiming with the stylus. As long as developers won't remove or stop using stylus aiming in games in favor for a second analog stick, I guess this could be useful though. In other types of action games perhaps.



Imerion commented on Review: FAST - Racing League (WiiWare):

Played this all day! I'd give it a 10/10 no doubt. The only WiiWare games I can think of that I have enjoyed more are World of Goo and Cave Story. (And it might change, depending on how fun FAST is in multiplayer.)
But then again, I really like futuristic racers. As many have mentioned, certainly the best in the genre available for Wii apart from F-Zero GX.
I really hope it sells well, so Shin'en will consider more WiiWare games. :)
Then again, will be really interesting to see what they can do on 3DS too.



Imerion commented on Rumour: Sonic Generations and Time Crisis Head...:

It's really strange if a Sonic game would not be released on Wii considering how well the other Sonic-games have sold there. Sonic Unleashed sold more than twice as well on Wii as on any other platform according to VGChartz. A 3DS and/or Wii version would really make sense.



Imerion commented on You Won't Get a Nintendo Console with a Button...:

Good to hear! I have nothing against motion controls or touch screens, but they really need to be complemented with buttons in most cases or the games will suffer from it. Nothing I have played on touch-screen tablets or mobile phones have managed to work nearly as good as real buttons. Both in unison, like the DS, can be fantastic though.



Imerion commented on Interviews: High Voltage Software - Conduit 2:

HVS really did a great job with this one. Still having loads of fun, especially when playing splitscreen with friends.
Having played it even more now, I keep getting impressed by all the awesome tech they manage to throw around. Perhaps it's because I'm a programmer myself, but I can really see the craftsmanship shine through here and there. It does so much stuff many players will probably not even see unless they look for it.
And as I've said before: it's a real run-n-gun with colorful graphics. You don't see them often these days among all the "realistic and gray" shooters that seem so popular.
Here's hoping for a third game, be it for Wii, 3DS or Nintendo's next console!



Imerion commented on Review: Conduit 2 (Wii):

Can't agree with this review. To me, this game is at least 8/10. It might be because of it's style though. I really like the run-n-gun design. To me, the fact that AI charges instead of hides really makes it so much more interesting than the standard tactical "spot/hit the pixel" type FPS. I want big guns and even bigger enemies which doesn't try to flee from me all the time, and that is what I get here! ;)

Also, Invasion mode is great fun and character/loadout customization makes it even more fun to play with friends, be it co-op or vs.

True, it might not be another GoldenEye Wii, but considering how fantastic that game was I wasn't really expecting that. A very solid and complete shooter it is nevertheless, though the style might not be to everyone's taste.



Imerion commented on Europe, Your Q2 Release Line-Up is Waiting:

Some nice stuff there! Conduit 2 is already pre-ordered and Zelda, Dead or Alive and Dragon Quest VI will be soon. That Thor game for Wii looks quite nice as well and I'm keeping my hope up for Green Lantern.
Also nice to see FAST: Racing League getting a release date. Now for that trailer...



Imerion commented on Sorry Everyone, There Was No Monster Hunter 3D...:

Oh, figures. :( No Monster Hunter 3D. Not even a new Ace Attorney.
The only new game was that drab looking Dragons Dogma. Seriously, Capcom games are usually very well designed, but that game just screams generic and soul-less.
Monster Hunter 3DS will probably come eventually though. I'm still hoping.
