Luffymcduck commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

I'm not expecting another reboot any time soon, since people say the new tv-series and comics are good. At one point, I even considered buying this. Good 3D platformers are rare nowadays. After seeing two reviews and the game in action, I've decided to save my money and spend my gaming time on other titles that are more worth it.

@SuperWiiU
At least they had a better deal with Platinum Games, though those game are just too awesome for most people and haven't sold much.

"Sonic games tend to have monotonous levels where you often feel cheated because you cannot perceive forthcoming obstacles in advance"

And this is what I hate the most in Sonic games. Memorising levels for best performance isn't bad but when the game is all about it, it's annoying. This is why some 3D Sonic games work better when you can actually see what's coming.

I was running out of time when I was playing trough 3rd dungeon for the first time. I had something like 5 minutes left, beat Gyorg and then went back in time. Years later, I learned that people call it a hard boss. Can someone explain why?

"which is a shame, because not so long ago, Sony couldn't say enough good words about its rival."
That comment was from a japanese guy. I've used to reading more polite comments from them, which I prefer and give more respect to.

I've played one game on Vita, Gravity Rush, which was a fun game and almost wish it was on PS3 too. Any Vita users here, are happy about PS Vita's library or is it lacking? Tell me because I don't know too many Vita owners.

@DilMan33
LBP has a better level editor and you can do all kinds of things with it. Mario Maker seems to be very simple, not a bad thing, but something you've been able to do for years with right tools (I would like to make Super Mario World levels in Mario Maker). Yes, I'm waiting for that title, but when I look at level editors in some of the competing titles, it seems too simple.

I can agree mostly about the best value Reggie is talking about. I've really enjoyed Wii U games. MK8 is not that fabulous though, too slow and boring compared to the superior Sonic & A-Stars Racing Transformed. But the thing this "best value" is really lacking are the 3rd party titles. It makes me sad that Wii U isn´t getting Batman Arkham Knight but that's because Wii U doesn't have enough power. GTA V on the other hand... that could've been possible for the system to handle since it's a last gen game. Nintendo really needs to make a bigger effort in getting 3rd parties aboard for the next console.

BTW, is there anyone who has completed all the challenges in both maps, or someone who got ALL heart containers and weapons and stuff from both maps? We've just defeated Ganon in both maps with my friend, there's loads of stuff left to collect and soon there will another adventure map.

I'm also disappointed that there wasn't a discount for Sonic Lost World now that they've released the new games. That could've eaten the new games´ sales but retail title discounts are too rare on Wii U anyways.

Luffymcduck commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

This would have been a perfect week to release Hyrule Warriors DLC. SSB arrives to Europe next week and I won't bother for a few months after that. Pretty much all the best games of the year (expect for DKC TF that came out in February) have been released after September. I don't have enough time to 100% finish them before the next release arrives.

An 8 from you guys? Nice! It's a very short game but it's a great experience. I call it art game. Oh, and David Wise's soundtrack, what could go wrong.

Luffymcduck commented on Kirby And The Rainbow Curse For Wii U Releases...:

Second half... so, that's 30th of June then. This is going to have hardly any dialogue so what's the delayed release for?
EDIT: Wait! Second half, not Q2?!? What the... why... I don't even...

I miss the times when Nintendo consoles (OK, handhelds) weren't region locked. I really enjoyed my japanese copy of Touch! Kirby, European release date was at the end of November.

Luffymcduck commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

I was really happy to notice that you can start some games with Pro Controller while the Gamepad is out of battery. Since it's only lasts about 3 hours it's gonna have a lot less juice after few years of recharcing. I wish I could have started the game with Gamecube controller but I since I have those Pro Controlles that have an actual battery in them that lasts more than few hours, it's not a problem.

@Manaphy2007
I wasn't saying that Sunshine is the same as 3D Land/World. Sunshine came way before Mario games started to become too predictable and use the same level themes and enemies over and over again. Sure, there might be "only one" New Super Mario Bros game per console and they're enjoyable, but the truth is that Nintendo does this "boring business" as Miyamoto says it, too. I don't mind that as long as they bring new and exciting experiences or series that haven't had a new game in ages (Pikmin 3).

@Yorumi
I'm very excited to see what Nintendo can do with the next Wii U Zelda game with all that open world stuff. Will they make it like Zelda 2 that has multiple villages to visit? I'm not so sure they'd include any decision making into that (other than the pointless "Will you help me": -yes or -sure).

@FlaygletheBagel
That seems to be one of Nintendo's biggest problem's at the moment. People ask for new IP's but buy mostly remakes and Mario games. I still appreciate that they make games like Pikmin 3 and Kid Icarus Uprising between all those Mario and Pokémon games (how about a new F-Zero someday?). Yes, I'm going to buy Majora's Mask 3D but I'm also really interested about Splatoon. People often buy games of the series that have been around for years. It's hard to make them buy new IP's especially considering that I haven't seen much Wii U commercials.

@ricklongo
It's quite an interesting design in such a fast paced game, yeah. Maybe they could have made it like in Kid Icarus Uprising. Though now that I think about it, it would have been ridiculous too see them talking while Bayonetta is summoning monsters from inferno and shooting enemies in the face using the guns in her legs.

@ricklongo
Maybe it's the fact I've played trough Metal Gear Solid 4 but I don't really mind cutscenes in games. Bayonetta 2 had nice cutscenes, though I would have liked to see less of those "still image cutscenes". Besides, you can just skip them.

Do many games have the option to turn of cutscenes entirely? In Hyrule Warriors you can turn of the "enemy cutscenes" that show up all the time, especially in Adventure mode.

@Gerbwmu
Yes, it would be nice to see more 3rd party support on a Nintendo console again. A system that would encourage 3rd party developers to make games for Nintendo. Some would argue that such machine would be too similar to Sony's and Microsoft's, but Nintendo could still do something unique as it has done before.

@Artwark
Not too much. Since Galaxy 2, every NSMB and 3D Mario's haven't really introduced any new interesting ideas. I'm still waiting for a moment when a new Mario game is something I can call near perfect again.

I'm happy that they're making new IP's like Splatoon though and not all of their franchises are milked to death.

@OneBagTravel
It depends how you present your story. If there are alternative paths (simple like being good, evil or neutral) and the story progresses in a different way. Most of the games I play are not really story driven but it's nice to see some variety. Kid Icarus Uprising had a fun linear story done just right.
