@Einherjar it wasn't because it didn't grant literal wings but because people bought the marketing hype that it improved your performance, and it didn't.
Just like Disney's Baby Einstein range that didn't fulfill the advertising promise that it would help make babies smarter.

@unrandomsam @Einherjar hardware mods probably come under the "reverse engineering" part or something like that. Yes, software mods are fine, but if they require a hardware hack then bad luck.
When 99% of people who hack their hardware do so to play pirated games (most home brew is just emulators as well), it's silly to use the mod defense and many just won't believe you that you only want to use it for mods.

You buy a license, and there are terms attached. Nintendo have lost a lot of money thanks to pirates, and I'm not surprised that they are doing this to combat it. The only people upset by this are those who are pirates, as anyone else would like waking up to am already updated console and being able to play as soon as you want instead of having to wait for the update first.
Any pirate or even other person upset about this should just not have their Wii U left connected to the Internet.

MadAdam81 commented on Parent Trap: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapph...:

I played the demo and thoght it was done on the quick and was probabl the worst Pokemon gameplay. Then I played it again and it was a completely new mission. Then I played a few more times and each one was in a different area against different trainers.
Apparently there is 10 different missions, so I recommend eep o playing it until ou get to the actual end of the demo before deciding whther it is for you.

Maye if Sony offered enough money, and then Sony would have to renegotiate every license deal for each character used or shown in the game. It just wouldn't be worth the massive amounts of money required for this in the small chance of it even being a possibility, as all it would do is sell another 500 Vitas and 1000 games.

@Caryslan and a Warriors game that is an exclusive, and only on a console where third party exclusives have struggled.
Bodes well for Bayonetta 2 which will probably sell more as a Wii U exclusive than if a third party had completely funded and published it and made it multi platform.
If you add in the fact that Rayman sold best on Wii U, I'm expecting more third parties to reconsider the Wii U, particularly if Bayonetta 2 and Devils 3rd both sell very well, and if older third party games, particularly exclusives like Zombie U and Lego City Undercover pick up enough sales over time where they finally turn a profit.

MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Reveals The Master Cycle for Mario Ka...:

@Vineleaf I still don't understand the fuss, yeah some favourites aren't there (Funky was my player of choice on Wii), but it just gives people the chance of finding new favourites. If anything, characters from Rare's game belong less than other NIntendo characters, as Diddy and Funky never appeared in a Mario game other than MK and vice versa, and Sonic seems a better choice to me as aside from Smash, Sonic and Mario have shared a few games. Of course, that is still just being over technical in trying to work out who belongs and who doesn't - the main criteria is that it should be cool and fun to play.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@Nimious a 10/10 genre game that people who never play that genre can really enjoy is a 10/10 game, whereas I would say one that only genre fans really enjoy mayeb shouldn't be considered a true 10/10.
I would say Left 4 Dead is a true 10/10 game, as the huge amount of people I know who can't stand shooters or horror games really enjoy L4D is staggering. Skyrim could be considered one, and possibly Mario 3D World.
If a perfect genre game has things that really turn of fans of other genres or even people who perefer other sub genres, then it's not as perfect as it could have been. The best example would be each new GTA that gets many 10/10s despite more cliched storytelling than wrestling.

@jariw As I didn't really notice much of a drop in frame rate with Hyrule Warriors, I probably won't notice any drop in B2 - thanks for the simple comparison, it really made it clear for me.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

It's weird that this review somehow managed to praise this game for it's occasional frame rate slowdown but really dug into Hyrule Warriors for the same.
They also attacked HW for having a last gen engine, just like this sequel.

@Nimious A legitimate perfect games for fans of the genre is different from a perfetct game. I don't care for male fantasy (excuses that it's okay because she's a dominatrix are weak), but I'll try the demo before I make up my mind, but this requires my internet working properly (stupid Australian corroding copper)

MadAdam81 commented on Weirdness: Monster Hunter Series Producer Deni...:

It's not a desire sensor, it's a very low drop rate whether you want it or not, but still for the same purposes, to keep those addicted still something to do if they can put up with the never ending grind quest.
As long as the never ending grind isn't needed to complete a game, then it isn't that bad a problem, but when a 2 hour game is stretched to a 20 hour game through never ending grind quests, then it's a bad game.

@Dipper723 I had the Wii version, kids killed it, but we got the PS3 version.
I never noticed a lack of characters for LEGO Marvel - which ones were missing?
Also, the lack of DLC doesn't bother me, there's really not much difference between 190 and 200 characters - how can you play them all? I only ever play about 20 characters with any real frequency myself.
I care about the ease of play and extra fun with the Wii U much more.

@Dipper723 how is it gimped? For me, Lego games are best on Wii U, with the gamepad being great as either game screen, map or quick character select, and being able to switch between the three modes in single player and the best of all is dual screen multilayer. For me, anyone playing split screen multilayer is playing a gimped version. As I will be playing this as well as my wife and all three of our kids, Wii U for Lego is a no brainer. I just wish we could get Lego Star Wars Complete Saga.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

@WaLzgi Region lock doesn't bother me as I can still import to Australia from Europe for the games we don't get here or are just much cheaper there. I think Nintendo deliberately allows that because they know Australia and New Zealand don't get all the games or the best deals and they'd rather us import a Nintendo product from Europe rather than not buy a Nintendo product at all.
Wow, this post was a lot longer than I was going to write.

@whanvee I know I am probably in the minority finging the Warriors games more fun than Zelda, but for me the elda games have noting on all the RPGs I have played, whereas the Warriors games have so many different characters, play styles, levels, missions and being fast paced that I don't have time to be bored.

MadAdam81 commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

@AJWolfTill Unless everything is on a SSD drive and you have as much RAM as the size of all the programs you are running.
And considering SSD's have such a low space and very low amount of times data can be rewritten on it, you would be spending a huge amount of money on it.

@Diddy_kong Ouch, I never had any problems with it, I had no idea any such problems existed.
In that case, ignoring any bugs from Most Wanted U, Bayonetta is the next best Wii U port, or possibly it's equal in the extra stuff added in (I would have to compare a list of extra work done for the port) and could be it's superior if there are no bugs at all.

@URAmk2 I must have been more tired than usual, oops. 85% is a A- in many schools in Australia, 80% a B+. 90% is an A, 95% an A+ and 100% an A++ - don't know if it has changed in SA since I finished school 15 years ago.
Still, it's a good mark and no-one would refuse to see a movie that only got 4 stars because it didn't get 4 and a half.
