MEGAMAN_D commented on New Instalment In The Popular Fatal Frame Fran...:

Well project zero 2 wii edition did come out here in the UK, so it shows nintendo are open to the idea.

But this is great news though, this is what the Wii U needs, great games that you can only play on Nintendo's new console.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Video: This New Amazing Spider-Man 2 Trailer S...:

Got this pre-ordered already (wii u version of course)

If you pre-order it, you get a code for 4 exclusive suits and each suit has it's own perks. You get the cosmic spider, the iron spider, spiderman noir, and symbiote spidey.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Well I've got the flu, and to cheer myself up I have got back into sonic lost world and DKC TF.

I finally got round to getting AC4 so I started that today, I'm really liking it so far and It's a lot better than AC3 even though I loved the story in AC3 I just found the game so boring.

I hope we get more AC titles on the Wii U

Ok guys, who remembers the snes mortal kombat april fools joke in ONM years ago ?

The one where they told you to sellotape a penny to the top of the cartridge in order to trick the snes into thinking the cartridge was heavier lol and play to the end without taking a single hit then input a code, and when you hear raiden go "ALLIBABBALEEEH" it had worked, then you would have blood in the snes version.

They even had screen shots and everything.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Report Suggests That June Could Be Crucial For...:

Let's all be honest, this has nothing to do with games, this is about perception and the awful job nintendo have done in advertising the Wii U. Wii U is a great console and has some great games (way better that the other next gen consoles) so what's the problem ? I'll tell you, I was in the pub the other day chatting to some random guys over a game of pool about games and when I told them I have a Wii U they looked confused and I had to explain to them that this was nintendo's new console, THERE'S THE PROBLEM.

I hate to say it but they need to embrace more western ideas and remember who THEY once were, Getting rid of iwata won't change a thing.

Reggie should have been president of NOA and europe, and Iwata in charge of japan.

If they do get rid of him, they better get someone that knows what their doing, otherwise it will be even worse, but then I ask myself, can things get any worse ?



MEGAMAN_D commented on New Watch_Dogs Trailer Highlights a Living, Br...:

I'm gonna take a wild guess here, but I really do believe the Wii U version is finished.

But they know as well as we do 3rd party games don't sell well on the Wii U, couple that with mario kart 8 out around the same time and the Wii U version would just get washed away.

I gonna say July or August time for the Wii U version, this game is gonna sell like crap anyway on the Wii U, but if there is nothing else for Wii U owners to buy they may just rake a few sales off of it.



MEGAMAN_D commented on High Voltage Software Developing 3DS Version o...:

I loved the conduit games, and would LOVE to see them do a 3rd one for the Wii U. In fact I have just started playing through the conduit 2 campaign and am really enjoying it again.

They should finish the grinder and get it on the eshop.

C'mon HVS make it happen



MEGAMAN_D commented on Latest Assassin's Creed Announcement Continues...:

It is never a good thing when a game is not coming to the Wii U. But in all honesty I'm not bothered about the assassin's creed games anyway, so no harm done here.

I have only just completed AC3 and I got that a week after launch day, it was Ok, but I found it boring to be honest and just forced myself through it for the sake of it, I haven't even picked up AC4 yet.

I am looking forward to watch_dogs though, so I hope that doesn't get canned.

I don't believe 3rd parties try with nintendo as much as they make out, they dip their toe in and then tell everyone they supported the console.

I don't wan't AC5, I don't wan't just dance, just give me a rayman and Zombi U sequel and I would be ecstatic, hell, you can even scrap watch_dogs ubi soft.

Wuddya say, deal ?



MEGAMAN_D commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

I always thought it was down to the publisher to advertise and promote a game. And secondly how do you promote a game that has already been out for 6 months on other platforms ?

I bought NFS MW U and I thought it was a great game and I can clearly see the effort put into it, so kudos to the guys that worked on it.

If NFS MW U was a launch game for the Wii U, I think it would have probably done a little better, but no shop even stocked it, I had to buy it on the eshop.

But all in all, I still believe that Wii U owners have access to one of, if not the best racers out there.

Just buy it any way you can and see for yourself



MEGAMAN_D commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

Just Imagine if this ends up using the gamepad as good as a game like deus ex ?

That's worth the wait in my opinion, "Oh, but the PS4 version will have better graphics"

Whatever, fact of the matter is neither PS4 or X1 have shown us anything graphics wise that has blown us away, so I highly doubt watch_dogs will be that game.

And I don't think this game will be cancelled, they still have the Wii U logo in the trailer and are probably close to finishing it. I never once saw the Wii U logo on any aliens CM poster or trailer which makes me doubt if the game was ever even started on to begin with.



MEGAMAN_D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I've said this before and I'll say it again

We now accept that 3rd parties are not in nintendo's corner at the moment, so it's NOW that nintendo need to make the best of a bad situation, how ?

Hide the negatives and accentuate the positives, the Wii U cannot compete with sony and microsoft when it comes to graphics and 3rd party games, so why try. But nintendo's own games are the best around and they make games sony and microsoft can only dream of putting out, the Wii U is also the most innovative console out there, has backward compatibility, free online, and they should start bolstering some second party exclusives like they did with bayonetta 2.

Hide the negatives, accentuate the positives



MEGAMAN_D commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I'm not sure how I feel about a batman game that doesn't have the joker in it. I know I will end up getting an XBOX ONE when this comes out, but the Wii U will always be my main console.

You just can't beat them ninty games



MEGAMAN_D commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

The is a cash converters not to far from where I live and already I have seen 4 PS4's in there, I have only ever seen 1 Wii U and I have never seen a XBOX ONE.

In fact I have seen many second hand PS4's in CEX and other cash converters. I think people maybe running out and buying it because it's the new thing, and then realizing that it has no games.

If sony can't get some solid games out in the next few months, I really do think the hype may start to fade and reality will set in.

But I have been wrong before



MEGAMAN_D commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Makes Top...:

For a country like the UK where most of it's gamers just wanna play fifa and COD, coupled with the fact that the Wii U install base in the UK is tiny, 9th place ain't to bad.

Well anyway, I did my bit for Wii U in the UK and got my copy from argos day one after I finished work.

Oddly enough me and one other guy was in the que getting it, and they were the last 2 copies.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Edge Of Reality Working On Transformers: Rise ...:

Right, a couple of things, first off

WFC and FOC were great games, but I think high moon may of just had a bit of luck or the real brains that were there have left, because their 2 most recent games, deadpool and transformers DOTM were absolutely terrible.


Wayforward and transformers sounds like it could be a good mix, these are the guys that made the only good aliens game.

And lastly, who the hell are edge of reality ? and are they making all console versions ?



MEGAMAN_D commented on Mario Kart 8 Accelerates to Number One on Amaz...:

The wii u is getting itself a decent game selection, so I do believe things are gonna pick up.

The only people that will never buy a wii u are the pure haters that would never buy one no matter what. But proper gamers that enjoy great games no matter where they are found will buy a wii u.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

X and bayonetta 2 are looking great, I wouldn't say no to metroid fusion on the gamepad.

The little mac trailer was great, we had some nice info on indie games.

What more do you lot want

I can't get over how good X looks



MEGAMAN_D commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

We all need to understand that it's not just 3rd parties that are to blame, nintendo have been sleeping on the job. I would call it 50/50, half nintendo and half 3rd parties.

The quality of the Wii U is not the issue here, anybody that owns one knows how good of a console it is, and if you say otherwise then there's no pleasing you.

It's not even the games, I highly doubt that X1 or PS4 will have games like wonderful 101, pikmin 3, mario 3D world, and Zombi U out in their first year, for Wii U owners in 2013, there was always games to play. It's the future that worries us.

It doesn't matter if the Wii U was a success or not, most 3rd parties just dislike nintendo for some reason (maybe because they don't cough up the green)

I can prove it, remember when black ops 2 was announced ? why is it they had already decided not to give the Wii U version nuketown 2025 before the Wii U was even released ? for all they knew the Wii U could have been a runaway success. But NO, they wouldn't even give it a chance.

Maybe not this gen, but when the war is over and the dust has settled, nintendo will still be standing, and all the 3rd parties (the ones that are left) will be crawling back to nintendo with their tail between their legs.

Despite phenomenal success with the PS4, sony are in a bad, bad way, and the X1 hasn't exactly had the impact the 360 had.

But good old nintendo are doing Ok, so they must be doing something right.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

I really, really hope the Wii U does a 3DS, and starts selling by the truck loads. I doubt that will ever happen but you never know, and I hope watch dogs bombs.

I just don't get it, first injustice GAU (delayed only on Wii U) and then arkham origins (delayed only on Wii U) and then assassins creed 4 (delayed only on Wii U) and now this.

"Our games just don't sell on nintendo console"

Y'know what, it has nothing to do with user base or sales, these 3rd party companies just don't like nintendo. Why is there hardly any big 3rd party support for the 3DS despite all of it's success, but yet the same companies have a set of mini defibrillators out trying to bring the Vita back to life.

Borderlands 2 is coming to the vita ? WTF ! Why don't they do a Wii U version ? why didn't DOA5 come to the Wii U ? but it came to the vita !? were you one of the five people that bought that ?

Did you see devs turning their back on the PS3 in it's early days when things weren't looking so good ?



MEGAMAN_D commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

Lost world is the best 3D sonic game ever made so far, The only reason a lot of people didn't like it, is because it was tough to master and there was no boost button.

Although I will agree with one comment on here, they should should have left out the colour powers. The just didn't seem to fit in with this game.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Shin'en Multimedia Lining Up Another Wii U Gam...:

I wish nintendo would just buy this studio outright and give them a bigger team and more funding.

This company show more creativeness (is that a word ?) than big budget, "AAA", companies like activision have shown in years.

Give them F-Zero, or starfox, I'm almost certain they would do a very good job.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Nintendo Still Seeking a Product to Define the...:

Why are there people in this comment section that keep saying

"the gamepad has yet to be used properly"

Have none of you people played zombi U, batman arkham city armored edition, deus ex directors cut, or wonderful 101 ?

What exactly do you people want ? and do you even know what you want ?



MEGAMAN_D commented on Rumour: 2015 Sonic Title To Hit Wii U Alongsid...:


There are 3 kinds of sonic fan

1) Wants a good sonic game
2) Wants a Good 2D sonic game
3) Wants to smash buttons and go as fast as possible

Number 3 is what those reviewers at IGN and gamespot were. The 3D levels in sonic generations were absolutely terrible, worse than sonic 06 and the only thing they got right was going fast, so sonic fan No.3 loved it.

Sonic lost world is a good game, it was just different and had a bit of a learning curve, so peoples heads started to hurt and they branded it rubbish.

Go watch the IGN review

The guy playing it RUNS off the level and says the game has cheap deaths !?

And then he just stands there while the ground beneath sonic's feet is breaking !?

EDIT: The good thing about this new sonic game coming to the Wii U, is that dimps will probably be handling the Wii U version, And I'm cool with that because these dudes do decent work when it comes to sonic. These are the same guys that did all the DS(regarded by many as the best sonic games since megadrive) and 3DS sonic games and sonic unleashed (had some of the best sonic levels to date)



MEGAMAN_D commented on Rumour: 2015 Sonic Title To Hit Wii U Alongsid...:

My taste in sonic games really differs from most. I didn't start playing sonic games until sonic adventure 1, because I only had nintendo consoles back in the day. I liked sonic adventure 1&2, but didn't buy another until sonic and the secret rings, and then black knight, and unleashed, I really liked secret rings and black knight, but felt the werehog stuff ruined unleashed.

And then colours came out and there were some parts of that game I loved and some parts I felt were thrown together, I don't like the feeling of being on rails and just banging the boost button and hoping for the best, seeing a blur that may look cool, but I don't actually have a clue where I'm heading , to me that's not a game. Then we had generations and I loved the classic levels but HATED the modern ones.

And then we come to lost world, which for me, is my favorite sonic of them all, I felt totally in control of sonic and his speed and knew where I was going and where I needed to go, and how to get there, and that is how it should be, not a load stuff whizzing by and arriving at the end with no real clue how you got there, yes, sonic needs to be fast, but not so fast it ruins the gameplay. I felt lost world found that perfect balance.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:


Dude, you don't understand !

I'm not talking a bit of screen tearing here and there, I'm talking bullets that don't cause any damage even though your shooting him in the face, I'm talking 6-8 failed attempts trying to get into a match, I'm talking PS3 freezing and making that messed up sound that goes NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE !
until you unplug or hold down the power button.

They have patched the main game quite well, so I surprised with all these problems they won't patch the multiplayer.

The way I see it PS3 never got the multiplayer mode either, that's how bad my experience was.

I have not tried the 360 version, so this may not be the case on that platform.

EDIT: I just watched that video you put up, and I can say (no BS) the Wii U version was NEVER that bad, even before they patched it, but it was a bit laggy.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:

Although the Wii U version never sold to well here are a couple of things to consider.

I had the game on PS3, and although the multiplayer was quite fun, it was a broken, glitchy mess, that crashed my PS3 more time than I can count. Also the attach rate of the Wii U version was actually Ok, when you consider the fact that millions own a PS3, but according to VGCharts it only sold a million and a quarter.



MEGAMAN_D commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:


It has the games you like ? what games ?

It ain't got none, what are you playing ? killzone, knack, or killzone ?

I was really considering a PS4 just before christmas, and I thought to myself right, what games shall I get, killzone.......errrrrrrrrrrr

I love killzone, I got all of them, mercenary on the vita is probably the best handheld game ever made. But as much as I want shadowfall, I can't buy a console for one game, and the rest of the GOOD games on it, I can get on my PS3 or Wii U.

You know I'm right



MEGAMAN_D commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:


Ooooooooh, the saturn

Yes I remember christmas 96, waking up and unwrapping my shiny new saturn with fighters megamix.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree with you about deus ex. The gamepad really made that game something more. PC will of course always look the best, but the Wii U version still looked good enough and I never experienced any game breaking glitches and it seemed to run smoothly enough for me.

I case you haven't, try the Wii U version and you'll see what I mean.
