Monkeh commented on Curve Studios Announces Wii U Exclusive Stealt...:

While I kind of dislike exclusives all together, seeing as the more platforms a game releases on, the more people will be able to enjoy it, it's nice to see some positive news about the cooperation between Nintendo and an indie developer, seeing as Nintendo hasn't had the best track record with those.

Nonetheless, I still think it's really stupid Nintendo has missed so many of the great indie games over the last few years, which were released on basically every platform except the Wii-U. Here's hoping for a better future..

Monkeh commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I feel the Wii-U version should have been the first one released, if not just because for the sheer fact the 3DS is doing so well, while the Wii-U is struggling..

So yeah, mostly disappointed that the Wii-U will have to suffer even more, even though for me personally it won't matter much, since I was going to buy both versions anyway.

EDIT: Also @DestinyMan I think most people would've been fine if it was the 3DS version releasing in the Winter and the Wii-U version in the Summer.

Monkeh commented on EA Boss Peter Moore Apologises For Frostbite's...:

Really don't see what the fuzz is all about.. aren't you supposed to be fooled on April Fools?

Anyway, I actually wish they would make a tuned down Frostbyte Engine for Wii-U, but obviously that would cost too many resources to be profitable.

Monkeh commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Spr...:

Currently obviously looking forward to Mario Kart 8, but since I wholeheartedly expect Smash to release in 2014 as well, I'll have to give that my vote.

Honestly wouldn't be surprised if X doesn't come out 'till 2015.

Monkeh commented on Video: What Could The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward...:

For me, personally, the hate for SS comes from it having a 'hub-like overworld' instead of your traditional (actual) overworld that was in every previous Zelda game (and more recently in A Link Between Worlds, which is probably why that got hardly any hate).

Truth be told, I would re-buy every one of those games if they were released in HD on Wii-U. All of them expect Brawl, since that would only be worth anything if Smash 4 is still a long way off (which it shouldn't be).

Monkeh commented on Swords & Soldiers HD Catapulting Its Way Onto ...:

@Pixel-Perfect I agree with this boo. Probably won't be getting this now, especially after having seen how good Swords & Soldiers 2 looks (plus I already own Swords & Soldiers HD on Steam [and the original on WiiWare], but still would have gotten this IF it had a fair price).

Monkeh commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

He's probably right, seeing as if Nintendo had sold the Wii-U at the same price, but without a gamepad and in place increased the graphic capabilities (thereby [almost] matching PS4/X1), it probably would've sold a lot better and there'd be more third-party games releasing on it.

It's hard to deny that the gamepad isn't worth what you've paid for it, seeing as it's only real use is off-screen play. Some games, like Wind Waker, may have made pretty good use of the gamepad, but these features are far from being a necessity. That and if you look at all of the upcoming anticipated titles, there's not a single one that has promoted gamepad-features.

Monkeh commented on Donkey Kong Country's Fate Was Determined By A...:

As a six year old kid, my first introduction to Donkey Country was while me, my sister and my parents were on holiday in the US and there was a demo-stand at one of the airports we went through. I was seriously blown away and had never seen a game this pretty before! After having seen that, I knew I needed a SNES. And so, a few months later, I got the SNES-DKC-pack for Christmas! :)

Once I've finished DKC:TF, I think it's about time I replay DKC1/2/3, which IMO still look great to this day (though some anti-aliasing would be nice :P).

EDIT: Also, I can't wait to read the full interview!

Monkeh commented on Video: The Top 20 Wii U Games So Far - Part One:

Already own all those third-party games (besides ZombiU) on the PC for a lower price and with better graphics.. So yeah, IMO a terrible list with hardly anything worth getting for the Wii U. Ah well, at least I'll be able to enjoy some more DKC:TF before the Wii U goes back to collecting dust 'till May (Mario Kart).

Monkeh commented on Mario Kart 8 Racing Wheel Available For Preord...:

Come on Nintendo, you really think anyone wants another one of those plastic wheels? Not like I'll ever use/buy it, but it still seems kinda lame Nintendo wouldn't make something more worthwhile. I doubt they heard much positive reactions from the Wii Wheel.

Monkeh commented on Weirdness: You Can Now Play Zelda Really Badly...:

@ThomasBW84 Wasn't an 'attack' at you btw, just gotten tired of the reference in general, especially since I see it EVERYWHERE (not just gaming websites). Plus me and almost 90% off the people who now know about Flappy Bird, didn't even know about the game before the 'controversy' about it being taken down. But yeah, you're most likely right in saying it's going be a while before people stop using it.

To be a bit more on-topic: Dunno if this works as well as with Pokemon. I personally don't find it very enjoyable to watch.. though Twitch Plays Pokemon also isn't worth watching more than 5 min. for me.

Monkeh commented on Diddy Kong Confirmed as the Latest New Challen...:

Always quite liked Diddy as a character and back in DKC1 I'd always rather play as him than DK, but didn't play much as him in Brawl. Good to see him back though! Plus that screenshot together with Little Mac is just epic.

Monkeh commented on Video: These UK and US Donkey Kong Country: Tr...:

"There's a sense of goofy adventure to it that the American version misses out on slightly, with the added bonus being that we can actually picture Blessed and Donkey Kong himself getting along quite well if they were ever to meet. Either that or he'd join the walruses of the Snomads."

Couldn't agree more with this. IMO, the American voice-over also makes it sound like it's only for kids, while the goofiness of the UK's voice-over is enjoyable for both kids and adults

Monkeh commented on Developer Interview: PhobosLab on XType Plus, ...:

"All the ground work is done and I believe it will happen. Nintendo still has a lot of community work ahead of them. They have to open up a lot more and engage more with indie developers, but they're definitely on the right track."

Exactly this, which is where the problem lays. Look at Team Meat, both guys love Nintendo, yet Super Meat Boy was never released on a Nintendo console, because Nintendo doesn't want it... -_-
Nintendo just keeps denying indie's access to their consoles, whereas Sony, Microsoft and obviously the PC have been embracing them for years now. Sure, it's now getting slightly better, but that's not going to do any good. They should drastically change their approach to indie games, if they ever want to be close to an 'indie game machine'.
