MadAdam81 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

@Galenmereth I have read comments by massive Zelda fans who love the music most. One thing I like a lot with the Warrior games is the music, and before writing it off, it might be easy to listen to some of it on YouTube.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

@NImH Okay, I just heard that they are really strict. The only other 7/10 review I saw was IGN, who are known for being really biased against anything that isn't Halo or COD. Most others were 8/10. The Kotaku review might be worth reading, as it was one by a guy who is a big Zelda fan but doesn't care one but for Warriors games. It can be hard finding a reviewer who likes and dislikes the same things in a game as you, as it is always different for each game.
Best thing to do is play it.

@NImH I wouldn't worry too much, I read a more glowing review of 8/10. I would recommend googling a bunch of different reviews until you find one you agree with the most.
Famitsu gave it 36/40 or 90%, and Famitsu are known for being really strict on all genres, not rating one higher than another.

@andreoni79 @Ralizah People buy a Wii U for local co-op, most Wii U games with multiplayer servers don't get used, so it would be at the expense of something worthwile.
The cut-scenes might not be up to the level of Zelda U screenshots, but they're not bad.
The framerate drop in Warriors Orishi 3 on Wii U wasn't a problem for me, I had no idea it existed until I read people complaining, as it was less than PS2 & 360 Warriors titles. As WO3 Wii U was a quick port, I assume HW will be less of an issue as it was built ground up for Wii U, and the 30 fps limit is not a problem unless you either cut out half the game or make it for PC.
Ass the WIi U is not an Xbone or PS4, if they used an engine designed for those consoles then the performance of the game would massively suffer.
As for the amount of stuff on the battlefield, it has to be set in Hyrule, not a different universe with density of people and buildings from a modern world.
And considering how "lack of polish" generally means "it doesn't look and play 100% exactly how I like" and is very subjective, I'll just wait until I play it myself.
This review reads like a review for Super Mario 3D World by a reviewer who loves FPS and gives it a 7 or 8.

7/10 is if you ignore the Zelda & Warriors stuff. If you are a big Zelda or Warriors fan, you will like it more than a 7/10.
Most reviewers mark Warriors games down and FPS or platformers up.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

@TrueWiiMaster Even if there are more Wii Us than Xbones now, it will be completely different in a year or two, with the Xbones likely millions ahead. Minecraft is a long term sales generator, so by releasing it now it won't the sales for it throughout the life of the console.
The Xbone might also have a higher percentage of users who buy digital titles, plus also MS gave them a bunch of money as well to help convince 360 owners to upgrade.

@Punished_Boss Although indie download titles do well on Win U eShop.
Personally, I think a huge percentage of the Wii U eShop users would buy it, but then again 8 am sure they would have paid marketing experts for a feasibility study, and there's no point doing a Wii U version for little or no profit, as that money and work hours could be put into something that would make them much more money. They're a business, not a public service.

@KJ85 except Australians get cheated as always - $16 here for both or $10 each. Of course, Nintendo are the least evil when it comes to this (Crytek are the nicest looking at Crysis 3 on 360).
Once it was reasonable for higher prices here when the exchange rate was 50 US, now it's around the dollar mark, but many are still twice the price here.

@HyperSonicEXE except they used your $50 to put towards development of a huge amount of extra content, an insane amount of new tracks without charging $25 to add another 50% content. How do we know it's all new? Because it's been many months since the game has been out and pack 1 won't be out until November and pack 2 until over a year after the game's release.

MadAdam81 commented on Legendary Actor and Comedian Robin Williams Ha...:

@joey302 Depression is a mental illness generally caused by a.chemical imbalance in the brain. A common feature is mood swings - big ones - where your brain has a massive amounts of happy hormones and you feel amazing and invincible no matter what happens and then where your brain has an overload of depression hormones where everything sucks and you feel alone and terrible and in massive pain no matter what happens.
Logic and depression rarely go together, however I understand he had money issues which is why he went back to TV (The Crazy Ones made me laugh constantly, and had good story and drama as well).
Personally, I felt like I grew up with Robin Williams, with Moro and Mindy on until I was 2 and then many re-runs, followed by multiple viewings of his many movies, including Good Morning, Vietnam as a 9 year old (and also Dead Poets Society, even more inappropriately for my age). Hook, Aladdin, Fern Gully (he voiced the bat), Mrs Doubtfire and his other 90s hits received many viewings, even now (re-watched Hook just last week). I also love his stand up work and his more serious roles - One Hour Photo is the only one of those I own however. While I never met him, I shed more than a few tears as I felt like I had known him all my life.

@unrandomsam The drought could never be bad enough to make me want something that foul. Although maybe I would need to be near death and mad from starvation and dehydration to find even one iota of enjoyment from it.
A rip off at 50c times 10,000 customers is still $1,000, enough for them to churn out another blight on gaming.

MadAdam81 commented on Gearbox Attempts To Extract Itself From Aliens...:

@Tasuki Sega had the finished product, knew it was bad but still marketed it as if it was even better than the demo.
Its hard to say it's Gearbox's fault, as they wouldn't have been responsible for the marketing. Sega could have easily changed marketing, but risked this fiasco by lying in advertising to try and get as many sales.as possible.
The funny thing is that if Sega had advertised it correctly and reduced the hype accordingly, people would have not felt cheated and less would have returned it and more would have bought it.

MadAdam81 commented on Gearbox Attempts To Extract Itself From Aliens...:

You are not getting what they told you were getting - against the law and instant refund. Same with movies - if the trailer is very different to the movie and you were disappointed, you are entitled to a refund.
Advertising has to be truthful. If you buy a game at launch or see a movie the day it's released, you can't find a review, and word of mouth doesn't mean people can lie in advertising.

MadAdam81 commented on Skylanders Trap Team on Wii Will, Surprisingly...:

It makes me assume this will be the last Skylanders Wii entry, and Activision want Wii owners to upgrade to a Wii U and keep strong Skylanders sales. This might help Wii U sales as much as the Wii U bundle with the exclusive figure.

MadAdam81 commented on Site News: Look, We'll Provide File Sizes For ...:

I must say I'm surprised there aren't another 100 requests for it here - being told firmly like that not to do something (even tongue in cheek) is usually a surefire way to get people to do the exact opposite. I think people are too happy to be sillier than thou. I'm not.
Please can you add file sizes to reviews? Thanks in advance.
