NauticalCrimes commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

@Mega719 thanks, I've found those now. Looks ... interesting. Really hard to get any information from them at all. I'm looking forward to seeing the videos start to pop up as of tomorrow. I'd love to see a comparison between the various platforms.



NauticalCrimes commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

I completely empathize with developers feeling the need to release something, anything to make some money but this really looks like it could have done with another week in the oven at least. With some better graphics and shudder music, this could have been a passable clone, if nothing else. As it stands it's a hideous clone, the worst kind of clone.



NauticalCrimes commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

It really does look like this game was built with as little effort as possible.

When your game is mechanically exactly the same as an existing game and you use a tiled brick background there are only two words to describe you. Creatively bankrupt.



NauticalCrimes commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

Sales of black flag no doubt lower than 3 because 3 was absolutely awful. I just picked up black flag in the sale and it's quite good. Better than 3 but I wasn't going to buy another AC game at full price after the dull dull buggy and dull AC3.

That said I've preordered WD on wiiu. I hope all the 'extra work' they're putting into it means it will look good and run well. Even AC4BF has serious frame rate issues. Would rather have had lower resolution.

Also lets see some gamepad innovation for WD pls! Heaven knows they've had the time!



NauticalCrimes commented on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light Developer...:

It is strange that they've showed off nothing of this new scaleable proprietary engine. The footage in the video was all stalker or footage of the UNITY 3D edtior. Possibly a prototype?

They're now claiming in the comments that they looked at a bunch of engines before settling on one. But if the engine exists why show shots of a unity prototype?

For the record I'd love a post-apo-survi-horro-fp-tp-s on the wiiu (and I've backed this project) but I may pull out unless I see some actual game footage in the next 29 days.
