While Harmonix.did Guitar Hero 1 and 2, Activision took the franchise off them and handed it to what's their names who did the Tony Hawks games. From that point on, Guitar Hero started its long trajectory to death, never able to succeed at poor rip offs of Harmonix work. It's probably been a year since anyone actually bought GH DLC.
Also, when Rockband don't relicense songs, you don't lose your ownership and I think you can redownload, but I'm not sure. With GH, I assume they will take all downloads offline as well, so I don't know if there really would be any point buying any of the DLC. RB has had many songs at half price, I just wish the Australian classifications system could be made to be like the US one so we could get the Rockband Network here.



MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (Europe):

I'm not sure why people expect so many games a week - and generally it's ont just a particular number of games, but rather a particular number of games that they like, which is different to the type of games the next eprson likes.
If Nintendo tried to keep everyone happy, then everyone would be disappointed with the shovelware on the system. It takes time & money to make a game (even a VC port), and Nintendo can't pull them from nowhere.

Also, Mario Kart is coming out on March 28, and buying it will provide of the same amount as the purchase price of MK when buying MK8 on the sake console. Also, you can buy the limited edition MK8 with blue shell from EB.

@mystman12 Good Luck Charlie is the best family sitcom for 20 years, but that's because due to the death of the genre they were able to hire some of the best. Not only do I watch it with my wife & kids, I also enjoy it with some of my mates - PJ has to be the funniest stupid character, even better than Joey from Friends.
Shake it Up I can watch in small doses (an episode here and there), and Austin & Ally occasionally has made me chuckle or be slightly entertained a few times. Jessie is probably the most watchable of the remaining stuff now.
Shake It Up is probably the most watched by it's target audience and this actress is probably the most popular Disney teen girl (as the one from Good Luck Charlie is 20 by now I think)

One thing I love about the gamepad is dual screen local multiplayer - of course, I like how Blops 2 allows dual screen multiplayer for online as well.
Wii U is also future proof against HDMI going obsolete thanks to off tv play.

Maybe it's time for us Aussies as well as all the Europeans to lobby our governments to change to an ESRB system. It's crazy that for a small Indy Australian dev team to not be able to afford to release a game in their own.region.
Is Australia like Europe in that each system release needs its own classification review?

All that matters to me is that the Wii U is the most fun console I can remember. For me, the gamepad really adds a lot as well, especially for off tv play, second.screen stuff or dual screen local multiplayer.
However, I would have been happy to pay an extra $100 for the Wii U to have more power, just so there could be more 3rd party titles. The Wii U is too innovative with the way they put the guts together, making it too much work for 3rd parties, but if it had more power that wouldn't have been much of a problem.



MadAdam81 commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

@belmont Nintendo are the publisher. Sony & MS won't let Nintendo publish a game on their consoles, so for it to happen, another publisher would have to buy the publishing rights from Nintendo, or something like that - so probably if it were to ever happen (which it probably won't), it wouldn't be for at least 6-10 years.

I like the fact that he is so humble, as well as pinning all his success on the quality of the game and programmers. In the other article, he kept praising DKC's programmer for freeing up all the extra space for him to have better quality music.

@Joshers744 They likely don't have their Wii U/N64 emulator at 100% yet. I assume Nintendo only have one group working on VC, and they can only do a certain amount of games. I'm not sure if they have decided to put DS and GBA ahead of N64 in the queue, but it's not hard to get N64 VC on Wii - I bought some on my Wii and more on my Wii U in Wii mode - and being able to use the gamepad as a screen is handy as well.



MadAdam81 commented on Wii U Lifetime Sales in Japan Overtake the Xbo...:

Wii U will not be a big selling console, but neither were GameCube or N64. My guess is that it will get to GC levels, and maybe overall the Wii U and game sales will get close to breaking even. I guess that Nintendo will push it for another 3 or 4 years before bringing out it's replacement - plenty enough time to gauge what the market wants from.a console.
Nintendo's best bet with the Wii U is for Wii owners to upgrade when Wii U titles on the shelf greatly outnumber Wii titles - that alone could take 3 years or never.

@unrandomsam Freemium is free to play but pay to get stuff, as opposed to this being a demo where you can buy only the minigames you want - kind of like Wii Sports Club HD would have been if it gave one sport for free, or Tank x3, or the Street Pass Mii Plaza games. You can refuse to pay money to actually get more gaming fun, but you'll miss out on what you might find really enjoyable.

@Einherjar Each yearly installment of those games have new levels (even if they're not well designed and just rail shooters). It's not the same maps and content with just some new modes, which Art of Balance seems to be. This is more like buying Angry Birds on every single platform.
