Apart from being a hilarious pun, the idea that wave race lacks depth is wrong. I think what you meant was that it lacks career, XP, decals, hundreds other jet skis from different manufactured and all the rest of the ephemera modern racing games have introduced. Blue Storm undoubtedly had fantastic control and deep gameplay. A tough game to play well. I hate the trend to put hundreds of tracks and vehicles into a game to hide handling, mechanical deficiencies. One nurburgring is worth a hundred street courses.



Marlowe1877 commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

just grabbed it from my eb, despite my initially low expectations this game just impressed me more and more as i saw it played. So i pre ordered it at full price.
3 hours in, i would say to any action fan to get it! the SP is great, no technical issues, the controls are spot on, and can be adjusted, though i wont. the soundtrack is great and it just works. melee and ranged are perfectly viable, depending on taste. AK variants for me thanks:) but slicing and dicing feels like ninja gaiden should have.
If i had to relate it, i would say its Metal Gear Solid made by Sega for people who want to jump in and frag and frag and frag some more. Excellent



Marlowe1877 commented on Nintendo Releases Genyo Takeda's Full Eulogy ...:

I firmly believe that Mr iwata and his style of leadership will not leave a vacuum but clear path and moral direction that his successors, particularly the younger will follow confidently and divert from with his silent approval to break new ground and create new worlds and markets. His legacy is strength of character, respect and a conviction that to create is to take risks. What a privilege and a challenge he has given to those that will follow him.



Marlowe1877 commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

Looks great and I'm sure Next Level games will do the series justice. Disappointing to not get a wiiu instalment though. For the people who don't understand their misplaced sense of entitlement read or watch Stephen king's Misery.



Marlowe1877 commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

No origami gimmick. Just make a funny, visually complex, narrative driven RPG with lots of exploration and badges and party members. So yeah..... Thousand year door it up. The soundtrack for that game is incredible.
The gimmickry and dumbing down has got to stop.

I've got dsiware Dr Mario and have just been playing miracle cure and its a lot better. Cleaner, larger visuals, more modes, online etc. Its the definitive outing for the sadistic Mario and his creep pal Luigi. I don't know why this game is so tough, but I still love it
