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.

MadAdam81 commented on Hyrule Warriors Limited Edition Sparks Huge Nu...:

@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.

MadAdam81 commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

This is my second favourite Warriors game after Dynasty Warriors 5, which had a huge character roster and an 8 mission story mode for each character, with more fun added from X Xtreme Legends and Empires.
Xtreme Legends and Empire add ons for Hyrule Warriors would be totally amazing.

MadAdam81 commented on Limited GameCube Controller Edition of Super S...:

@SockoMario Gamecube controllers aren't better, but there are people who know the layout better.
As soon as I picked up a Wii U Pro controller, it was instantly my favourite ever, whereas the gamecube one sits far down on my list, only just above the Wii Classic controller.
The Wii U Pro controller just seems to have everything in the right place for my hands, as does the gamepad.

MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

@FX102A if people wanted those games on Wii U then Ubisoft wouldn't have made such a big loss on each one - even quick ports of mature games by all 3rd parties have been done at a loss. It's better than nothing, and I am sure many people within each company have been screaming in board meetings that dropping the system is better than making a loss, especially when they get such hate despite the service they are providing at a loss.

@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.

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

@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.

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

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.
