I worry for the controls, as with most motion controls from the Wii era making games just unplayable. And the fact that we still game on the couch. I feel that the thought of waving my gamepad around and having to stand up to play will contribute to this getting a low score in my book, and worryingly with no story to make me preserver!



Lord commented on UK Retail Survey Highlights the Challenges Fac...:

Game has sold out to Xbox and play station, but to be fair they charge on average £10 more per game than other shops and £10 more than thier own online store.
Also the atmosphere is appalling in game nowadays filled with Xbox yobo's, if your a ninty you are intelligent so you shop smart which means you will buy online or elsewhere, where the product is well represented in price and atmosphere.
It is true the UK high street is dead, and with Tesco being the only supermarket still stocking Nintendo (be it a small selection). Online is the way forward.
I look at the whole high street experience and find that nowadays shopping in town is such a waste of money, to park for three hours is £6.80 (that could have been an indie game purchase) trapesing around shops which either have overpriced titles or none you want to buy, or sale where the prices are still more than online. The money wasted on lunch £6 ( or another EShop purchase). The answer is : STAY IN, BUY ONLINE, PLAY GAMES, MAKE LUNCH!

Shame it's not on wii u! I understand that in Japan it will sell on handhelds but in the west we game on cosoles. And games of this size and nature are played on consoles with big screens and voice chat.



Lord commented on EA Cancelled Wii U SimCity Title Before The Fo...:

In 2011 EA where supporting the wii u with a couple of ports this would have been why they considered it. Also launch title games have a high guaranteed sale purely because the launch line is normally only 5-10 titles. It's a nice cash cow if the console sells.



Lord commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Sonic? How much will this latest entry sell? I offern wonder if sega would make more money by reserecting an old skies of, or shinning, or panzer or Shenmue ?



Lord commented on Weirdness: April Fools Comes Early As Amazon F...:

Firstly how many did Zombi U sell? and secondly by October 2015 i imagine the Wii U will have sold 8-9 millon units so to launch a sequel around then would have a good chance of selling well.
Ubisoft has said that there is no Zombi U 2 in the works but at the same time has stated that they do have one Wii U shelved.
The problem is that Ubisoft is so big now adays that it requires so many units sold just to pay the bills.



Lord commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

@lbs That sounds about right. I'm not sure where you live but my local GAME charges about £10 more that thier own Website, when questioned they say it's due to high street running costs.



Lord commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

Ok I don't have many games for my wii u but the ones I have are using the gamepad excellently... Spinner eliteV2, monster hunter 3u, resident evil, zombi U. If the use of the game pad is weapon selection and maps this suits me as I don't have to pause to select/check stuff in sub menus.
As for Nintendo well I can see why it's a struggle, because they build games not to need the use of sub menus which leaves them nothing to put on the gamepad screen. I'm sure zelda and metroid will use it well.



Lord commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

I'm a big ninty fan but In the uk the wii u is a rarity! (most shops have discontinued now).
I'm also upset that the tvii is still not available 2 yrs after launch, plus the lack of vc (the wii had more) as for third parties I would like more, as I'm missing my tigerwoods, cod, diablo. And the titles I really want never arrive Dragon quest X, monster hunter 4 wii u.
I'm looking forward to the horizon but in true Nintendo fashion the edge is allways taken off games by omitting a game breaker in my eyes...ONLINE AND VOICE CHAT, I mean how to do co-ordinate a turf war in splatoon without being able to chat, or online 4player hunts in xenoblade without chat. I also think they could have sold more hyrule warriors if it had online co-op. and so the story goes on.........



Lord commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (Europe):

My Nintendo long list: tvii uk, n64 games vc, new star wars rebel game as mentioned earlier this week, monster hunter 4 wii u. Dragon quest X wii u, sega dreamcast vc, Ok that will do for now!



Lord commented on Captain Toad's Joined by Toadette in Treasure ...:

Shame the uk release date is January as most people in the uk have no money in January which will probably effect the sales. Games released during november/ December have a very high sales but the sales period inbetween Xmas and new year do exceptionally well. (Xmas gift money)



Lord commented on Preview: Felling Titans in Monster Hunter 4 Ul...:

This needs to be on the wii u as it is epic but won't be on the ds as we (western gamers) don't like to play this type on game on a handheld just look at the sales of the 3ds ver of 3 and the play station portable ver of 2 and freedom



Lord commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Questionable Expo ...:

This fits the theme Mh1 console Mh2 handheld Mh3 console Mh4 handheld Mh5 console?
Shame tho as I will only buy console releases of this franchise as with it's just not a big handheld game In the west and Europe!
I also heard that the online is region locked so the UK can only play Europeans and the US can only play US Is this true?



Lord commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

I want it to be Diddly racing but with new characters from other less know franchises. Or metroid prime 4 or metroid hunters 2. But it will
Probably be neither and will just be starfox and project guard! But all in all retro do make a great game.
