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

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.

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.

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



Marlowe1877 commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

2 things. This is a stupid article. Secondly how many spoilt brats are here defending Disney! You'd think Nintendo were producing plasma or antibiotics. Poor management by a Nintendo trying to keep costs down in a very tough few years. Disney sell a redundant portal to wiiu owners with NFC. That's rude



Marlowe1877 commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

I'm happy without voice chat. Its the gamer equivalent of listening to illiterate valley girls telling each other how their day went. If you want to spend a couple of hours chatting with your mates pick up the phone. Its almost never used for tactics. The lack of consequences for people vilifying or just spamming others with screams and static means we all do without. There is a map between the thumb sticks. No I don't want to mute people, I'd rather not hear them ever. The mood of the game is light and fun but still intense which is quite a feat.
Off topic but this game plays like its on a high end p.c. its good to see Nintendo putting its performance as a priority. Hate those TV kids though



Marlowe1877 commented on New Mega Man TV Series Blasting Its Way to Scr...:

I hope the hordes watch this show so there is a chance a game gets made. However I would expect quick and dirty phone games if anything. Aahh capcom you are a shadow of your former glory but i still love you;)
At least inti creates and comcept are here



Marlowe1877 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Could Use Google's Android...:

@Peach64 that's not the case. Eyes open or shut that's not the case. You can't compare passively cooled ARM chips with console chips, it doesn't work that way.
The ninth difference is just as much software as hardware and this would make them hostage to whatever decision google makes in future design
