I had no idea, I never owned it personally but had some friends who did and for some reason I kept visiting them to play it....
I've had it on VC as well and not heard it. It's about as cool when I first heard about the warp pipes, and when I first heard about the secret second lot of warp pipes.

@Lukey64000 If you are Australian you can point to the Australian law that says they have to fix or replace with a working one or refund. If you are not Austraian you should ask a consumer law expert in your country.
I'm having my own problems with MS at the moment - I got a $20 promotional Xbox credit voucher that had a secret expiry date and they are refusing to replace it. I'm going to have to go through the ACCC I think.

Ubisoft's number 1 game was Rayman Legends, a game that sold best and rated best on Wii U. Personally I'm not fussed it was made a mulitplat game as otherwise Ubi probably would have made a loss on what I consider probably the best platformer not made by Nintendo.

MadAdam81 commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:

The only problem is that VC is not enough of a money spinner for Nintendo. Nobody is going to buy a 3DS or Wii U just so they can play a bunch of particular VC games (except for maybe those for whom Earthbound was the clincher).
Nintendo only have a limited amout of programmers, and we can't have 100 VC games a year AND great games like Splatoon AND new Zelda AND new Metroid. Also, if Nintendo do too many VC games then most of them don't get any purchases, they get lost in the deluge. However, it would be nice if they could prioritise their VC release schedule to ensure that the games people want to buy are released before games nobody really cares about.

@JaxonH Also my friend and I have a Wii U each. The other day my friend took his around to another friend's place and with MK8 and Smash Bros he's hooked. He had a Wii but it gathered dust.
My first friend only got a Wii U after playing my launch console. I "got" the console on it's first annoncement and it has delivered, whereas most people don't get it until after they've actually played it.
Nintendo need to do some marketing to help this word of mouth amongst western male gamers and actually have some western male gamers in their campaign - maybe just before the release of Splatoon would be a good time to get such a campaign going.

@Fandabidozi I am offended by your attitude, just because I haven't found anything actually offensive to be offended by today.

Seriously, he's like those middle aged women who love their soapies, tabloid papers, celebrity rumour magazines and current affair shows so they can yell at the baddies.

@ninjapigstudios As a publisher the buck stops with you. You need to double check everything, there needed to be complete documentation for everything and if you aren't professional enough to do that then you can't complain when you cop the flack for what results from your oversight and business failings.

@rjejr Mario Kart Wii, 7 and 8 all had great online, simple to get in a game and doesn't throw a fit if your net speeds drop. Haven't had a problem with any online features of any Wii U game and the only issues I've had with my Wii U at all is about 5 vuvuzela crashes in the lifetime of my launch console.

People are upset that Nintendo made four things people like but weren't able to make many millions of each within 6 months to satisfy everybodies demand immediately.
Would i have been better if there were no Amiibos? Or maybe no GC USB adaptor? Or no New small 3DS? Or no New XL? Can't have your cake and eat it too - at least not get really upset and complain on the Internet because other people got theirs first. Seriously, sounds like a bunch of 3 year olds.

@electrolite77 There's no real reason to get a small 3DS unless you can't afford the XL or you would rather the case look more pretty than the game - and who cares what the case looks like when you've got a bigger and better looking screen? Instead of worrying about better looking cases why not just print off some nice posters and look at those instead?

Trust me you only want a New XL. It's like being upset that you can't pay them to slap you in the face with a wet fish - the New XL is THAT amazing.
Maybe not a full on 1009% amazing like some previous major Directs, but this one was very good and is going to make me spend money.

MadAdam81 commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

@KillScottKill I played the Bayo 2 demo after hearing only praise and I thought it was okay, not as basic as God of War, but also not as fun as Wonderful 101, any LEGO game, FF-X, any Diablo game and other action games, but the crotch shots were clearly the selling point. Maybe its because I'm not 13, but I thought it was weak and it wasn't fun.
I still am yet to play Last of Us, but it's hard to say that it's better than Left 4 Dead 1 & 2 or Walking Dead S1 or Dead Rising series - Dead Rising 1 and Walking Dead have hard to beat stories, Left 4 Dead has probably got the best action gameplay and the best enemies, and I haven't played anything like Resident Evil so it's hard to say that Last of Us is the best Zombie Action or Shooter of the last gen. I would say it's better than Killing Floor though.
Yes it's better than most shooters and most action games but is it undeniably better than these games I listed?
Also, I meant they were the best games of thir sub-genre of all time. with Mario 3D world possibly the best platformer of all time.

@Quorthon Other M was a Team Ninja game, and it wasn't a buggy game at all, never heard of any bug nd I know a few people wh completed it. A bad game in all aspects, but not buggy.
Yes The Last of us is a very good game, but to say whether its better than MK, Smash Bros, Skyrim, Mario 3d World or other GOTY worthy games is just a matter of opinion.
Also, Mario Kart 8 is considered the best game of it's genre, as is the new Smash Bros and Mario 3D World, but you can't say The LAst of Us is the best of it's genre, let alone sub-genre.

MadAdam81 commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

@KillScottKill I never said it's a rehash of Bayo 1, I said it's mostly about crotch shots and basic level action gameplay, much more basic than Kingdom Hearts or FF X even without their RPG aspects removed.
Also, MK8 is much more than a prettier version of previous ones, otherwise it's like saying every shooter is no more than a rehash of what's gone before or the same with any game of any genre.

@KillScottKill sunset overdrive, the most traded in game? And Bayonetta 2 that doesn't improve on anything that has gone before and can also be referred to as "Crotch Shot: The Game"? If you seriously think those two are better than MK8 then not many will trust your opinion.
Dragon Age and Smash are on par, but is only personal preference that separates them.

It would be great if he could have had time to do some small work on one game every year, just to help keep things in perspective - getting into the trenches with your staff always helps CEOs, its why that secret boss reality show thing is good.

MadAdam81 commented on Review: A World of Keflings (Wii U eShop):

I had a lot of fun with thse two games on my 360, as soon as this is out in Australia I will buy it on Wii U - it's one of my most favourite small downloadable titles on any platform that's not made by Kairosoft (if they brought Kairosoft games out on Wii U my heart would explode with happiness...)

MadAdam81 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

I felt X&Y was the biggest leap forward in quality, and not just graphics. If there was a patch for X&Y that allows al the extra mega evolutions from ORAS, I'd stop playing ORAS and keep playing X&Y only (I still play both).

MadAdam81 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

@ZachBeacon Oh yeah, I heard of the banning but that was the result of a couple of minor bugs the first being people using Peach's item in a no item battle, but I never heard of anyone's console getting bricked, and I am sure it wasn't reported here (unless I missed it).
Probably the only bugs but only for an online feature that the first two games never even had - even if those bans didn't get overturned, how is a buggy online mode that is fun to play until you accidentally get banned worse than no fun online mode?

MadAdam81 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

As only a casual observer looking in, original was okay, I played it a handful of times in store and that was enough. I picked up GC cheap when I got my Wii and had a bit of fun but was finished with it before too long. Wii version was not much fun and I regretted buying it. I played a bit of 3DS and my kids love the Wii U one and we have played my friends version and it's the most fun by a mile. If Smash Run could be on Wii U it would be even better.
We will buy Smash for Wii U soon.
