KikReask commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

I definitely prefer physical over digital, unless of course it's a really older rare title that's too expensive or unless Steam has a sale on.

I'm always going to prefer the pleasure of having game cases on my shelf, it's the novelty of seeing what I own in one spot that I love about it. Same with most other media, DVDs, Blu-Rays, books, comics, especially books and comics because they're just not as good when it's on a phone, tablet or computer, it's more genuine when it's real.

But I am going to have to buy Yooka-Laylee as digital only but I'm fine with that seen as I have no other option.



KikReask commented on Mega Man & Bass Kickstarts "Mega May" On Wii U...:

Can we get Mega Man 9 & 10 on the Wii U whenever Nintendo needs to shut down support for the Wii Shop Channel? No, I cannot get enough of Mega Man on the virtual console right now, even if I feel bloated with all of these releases.



KikReask commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

Well I'm playing the European version of the game and I'm not sure if it's running at 50hz but it doesn't feel that slow to control Donkey Kong in it. However when you're playing this on a HD TV the world feels so confided and claustrophobic, I changed the widescreen settings on my TV but it still doesn't look right, no lag happens it just doesn't look right to me.

And the camera is pretty awful. It feels like I'm struggling with the right analogue stick because of how stiff it feels. When Rare rereleased both Banjo games on the 360 they cleaned up the presentation and controls of it, I feel as if Nintendo should have done the same when it came to rereleasing their N64 games on a HD console.

Ah well.



KikReask commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Reckons "It Would Be Co...:

I appreciate that Phil Spencer looks at a deal with Nintendo positively, but Microsoft still has a tight grip on Rare's throat, and if Banjo and Kazooie showed up in Smash Bros today, no doubt Microsoft would want them to be the Nuts & Bolts design.

I feel as if something could be done almost similar to Marvel and Sony's deal, but there's nothing left of Rare to do with other than nostalgia value.



KikReask commented on Today Was Reggie Fils-Aime’s 54th Birthday:

Happy Birthday Reggie!
Funny enough I watched "My body is ready" again yesterday just for laughs without knowing it was his birthday. XD
He has been a remarkable person for the company, has always been happy and enthusiastic and we need more representatives like him in the industry.



KikReask commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

As someone who can't buy the New 3DS just yet, is Monster Hunter 4 okay to play on the old one? I don't mind having to use the face buttons to control the camera because I was able to play Snake Eater just find like that.



KikReask commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:

I'm still waiting for a big Wii U HD Metroid. ... It'll never happen, not on this console. Meh, I would say that I've given up on seeing another new entry in this franchise, but with a new Star Fox on the way 8 years after Command came out, it has renewed a bit of hope in me. I'll say we won't see a new Metroid come out until 2019. :/



KikReask commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

You know, I'm still going to pick it up, but I can't help but wonder if my Gamecube Collector's Edition copy still works. Last time I checked, ages ago, it crashed a couple of times because of how old the disc is.



KikReask commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):

Even though I spent either £40 or £50 on a new copy of the Prime Trilogy, I can't get rid of my physical copy of it, ever. It's too precious of a treasure. I just wish I didn't sell the physical copies of the original releases when I got the Trilogy. :/



KikReask commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

So will there be a tie in game and if so, for which console? XD

I'm okay with an animated picture, I'm okay with Sony working on it especially if their Ratchet & Clank movie turns out decent, but Avi Arad? ... Naaaah. Anyway, I think Mario should have already been in Wreck-It Ralph and should have appeared at the end to give the obligatory message to Ralph, but eh.

Just, please don't ever make the Metal Gear Solid movie you've got planned. The games are movies themselves already.



KikReask commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

So I just played Smash Bros 8 player Wii U for the first time with a lot of people for a couple of hours and with Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors giving me plenty to do, I still have no interest in this, thing.



KikReask commented on Review: Super Mario Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

It's probably because of my nostalgia, but I prefer this version over the NES version anyday. The NES version just looks bland in terms of graphics, and the SNES version is missing some of the improvements seen in this one.



KikReask commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

I'd give it a B-

It's a very fun console with excellent graphics and the finest first party titles on the market and a lot of backwards compatibility although with a pretty good online service thanks to miiverse. I certainly look forward to next year's line up of games too.

However, the gamepad, as fun as it is, we could've done without it considering a 3DS at this point can do nearly everything the gamepad does. If we didn't have the gamepad, sales might have picked up better than this. Third party support is utterly rubbish, both on the fault of third party developers and Nintendo. The advertising was the worst I've seen in my life, someone should've been fired for that.

The Wii U is great fun, but it's honestly failed in terms of sales and consumer interest. I doubt it'll last longer than 2016. I say that reluctantly because along with the N64 this'll be another Nintendo console without a Metroid title.

To me, the Wii U isn't a Dreamcast situation, it's a Saturn situation. It won't mark the end of Nintendo making consoles, but they need to fix this in the next console generation.



KikReask commented on Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. F...:

Wasn't going to get them, but when I knew they weren't making seperate ones for Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors, it changed my mind. If only for Hyrule Warriors content and that Mario Kart 8 Samus suit. Only wish they had a Bayonetta figure now. XD



KikReask commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

I would argue that the controls for Super Mario Bros 1, 2 and World were all perfect, but Super Mario Bros 3 had the most slipperiest controls of them all. Mario felt like he was as light as air. Better than Mario 64 however where it feels like I'm trying to force a fat guy to walk. XD



KikReask commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

What they might show:
Some new development on Zelda U
Maybe more Smash Bros DLC info
Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire stuff
New 3DS stuff
Maybe more Xenoblade Chronicles information
Mario Maker, Splatoon and Yoshi's Woolly World news

What they won't show:
Anything Metroid related.



KikReask commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

I live in Northern Ireland aka the middle of nowhere, and right now it is difficult for me to find a copy of it, couldn't find one yesterday and there wasn't one today. All of the stores don't sell Wii U games, except for one toy shop who haven't received shipment yet apparently.

There is one GAME shop in the city that would be definitely have it but my budget cannot afford both a train ticket and the game right now. Even if I could find Bayonetta 2 it'll be more difficult to get both it and the original game. I could order it off amazon, but I don't want to wait another week for it. As for buying it off the eShop, even if I preferred digital copies over physical copies, my Wii U memory is about 14GB left.

Shame, I just finished the original on 360 to get myself ready for it, and no one has a copy close to me. Maybe after the weekend it'll come through, but no one cares to sell it I guess.



KikReask commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

Well umm, this is a shocker for someone who has bought every single issue of the magazine since it launched in 2006. I'll admit I wasn't reading the new issues a lot but I still enjoyed them greatly. I'm not even sure if they're done with their spine art. Oh well, goodbye ONM, it was nice knowing you lot.



KikReask commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Yawn, Don't care, Ubisoft clearly wants it to fail and to be honest, it failed miserably on the other consoles too so, with the exception of anymore Far Cry games I'm done with Ubisoft completely like EA, except for Dead Space when it comes to EA

Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors and Smash Bros look far more fun so, yeah have fun selling 0 copies of this port.



KikReask commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS S...:

@TheLordAndrew Only when Sakamoto is involved with something do they forget about the Metroid Prime games.

And you know, I think we should have gotten a proper Fusion suit with it being skinnier and such, and I really wanted the Phazon suit from the first Prime that one looked so sick. Ah well, at least we're getting the light suit and dark samus. (Why green suit is back I have no idea)

BTW do you think Zero Suit Samus might show up in green hair and pink clothing too?



KikReask commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

It doesn't seem fair in the slightest bit yeah considering it was originally a 3DS title (I haven't even bought the HD version yet) but at the very least it isn't next gen exclusive so I can still get it for the 360 or PS3. At the very least those two consoles are cheap these days if you still want this game.

Don't expect anymore Capcom games on Nintendo platforms, Capcom clearly doesn't like seeing how Nintendo is treating Mega Man these days with all that pointless love and affection.



KikReask commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Thank the gods I didn't upgrade to a 3DS XL already this year, but for those who did just purchase an XL, there's always another circle pad pro to use.



KikReask commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

Ubisoft: "I think that franchise could be magical"

Yeah certainly, but I think Ubisoft would consider Smash Bros more magical if it was completely milked for all it's worth annually. I mean, c'mon Nintendo, Ubisoft is releasing it's 7th and 8th main Assassin's Creed this year, why isn't Super Smash Bros being milked annually?



KikReask commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

For me, Super Mario World (Super Mario Advance 2) Yeah the GBA version, that was the version I grew up with and it was the most awe inspiring Mario game I played as a kid. So much stuff to do, secret passages, new Yoshi's to find, so much replayability in it, and the finest graphics I've seen from a 2D Mario title.

Wario Land is on this poll huh? The first one is alright, but I highly recommend Wario Land 2, 3 and 4 too. Wario Land Shake It is okay but not as good as the old ones.



KikReask commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

While sexualization does exist in the gaming world, I don't see them doing it too much to Samus, she's the world's first proper gaming heroine it shouldn't be that big a deal that she's wearing heels or a sports bra.

Remember the Fire Emblem Awakening DLC and how that was nothing but shameless fan service with Tharja and Cordelia in bikinis? Well you also got Chrom and Gaius in shorts so no discrimination there right? We're living in a world where names like Solid Snake and Naked Snake exist, I think we shouldn't get too worked up over a sports bra.

At least Nintendo never made a game where they completely crippled Samus's character and turned her into some daddy's girl with parental problems that gets shy over fighting dragons. (Don't you dare correct me)



KikReask commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

Doesn't have to be much of an appearance. Maybe just include a Tingle styled character who runs a farm and is blue skinned like the Genie. Could even just be a minor character who does the regular sword tutorial thing.
