jdarrell commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

It's a free-to-play turn-based MMORPG currently at 50% being made with Unity. They re-launched the campaign after looking at funding options from Ouya, Nintendo, and Sony. After they finish the PC version, they'll make an Ouya port (5 months exclusive), then they have the Wii U listed as a console to port to. Have no idea if they'll actually do the ports though since I can't think of any f2p MMORPG's on Ouya or Wii U...

@WaLzgi I was saying most console games are going to have a premium price because the people who buy them aren't willing to go digital only, even if the specific game is digital only.

Of course iOS is still usually cheaper than (digital only) PC ports, but at least it's somewhat of a surprise there.



jdarrell commented on The Wonderful 101 Saving Wallets on Wii U eShop:

When I tried it, it seemed like a game I wouldn't want to play more than one mission at a time, which would make the digital version much more convenient. I'd rarely spend more than $20 on a digital game though.

Re: Flop
VR headsets are optional add-ons, what one person calls a flop can still be a success. Especially for Sony who cares more about being competitive than selling VR headsets. And I doubt there's anything stopping a USB PC headset from being able to support Wii U.



jdarrell commented on Two Tribes Shoots Down the Possibility of Toki...:

Toki Tori 2+ was an unlockable game in Humble Bundle 10, unlockable games receive a significantly lower amount of the revenue. I'd imagine the only reason to make a game unlockable or in other bundles would be to hope for good sales following the publicity.

"'Dream bigger!', okay!" starts building larger fireplace to burn the real Sun

I one-upped them and realised there's an entire galaxy out there, take that hipsters! But didn't get the feeling old message at all.

I wish the graphics didn't look like an unoriginal clone to me (why use pipes in a 2D game that has a flat dirt ground with a strip of green across the top, a light sky background with bushes, and a coin sounding effect). If you're using green pipes, it's because you remember them from the Nintendo series.

Edit: It's interesting though that games with "bird" at the end of the title have become popular.
