Neonridr commented on Prima Games Releasing Collector's Edition Guid...:

hold on guys, this guide is included in the collector's edition box set as well. So don't order both otherwise you will end up with two copies.

My only question is, does the box set have all the bonus items for each guide as well? It doesn't clarify if each guide has it's own special cloth map or bookmark included as well with the whole set.

Neonridr commented on Book Review: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia:

@Tony_342 - I would purchase a Metroid one in a heartbeat. It's a shame they didn't think ahead of time to do something for Metroid for it's 25th Anniversary. Considering it released in North America in August of 1987, they just passed their own Anniversary milestone.

Oh well, some day perhaps.

Neonridr commented on Book Review: The Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia:

Unless you are a real Zelda nut, I can't see a regular person wanting to buy this game. I mean it's full of character art, a 30 page manga prequel to skyward sword, detailed stories and timelines from the various games, and various other tidbits all related to the Legend of Zelda lore.

I don't think this book is aimed at the masses, just the various collectors and Zelda buffs out in the world. I've only had a chance to glance through it and read a bit of the chronology of the games, but I love what I have seen so far, and I can't wait to read it in more detail.

For those of you on the fence though, it's not like you're breaking the bank, it's only like $20, so it's a pretty fair deal for what you are getting.

The gold lettering on the green cover looks awesome too.

@bulby1994 yours came wrapped in shrink wrap? I preordered mine through Amazon and I received it yesterday, but it was just a book placed in an Amazon cardboard shipping package.

It is awesome though, it doesn't give any reference to the CDi Zeldas for those who are asking (those games didn't really exist in my mind, kinda like Rocky V)..

The timeline is awesome as it puts every game into place as where they should fit. Then it gives a detailed story about the games in the timeline. It's awesome. I highly recommend this for anyone who is on the fence about it. You can't beat the price for this amount of content either.

Neonridr commented on Review: Trine 2: Director's Cut (Wii U eShop):

The control issue is a pretty weak in my opinion. I find it almost impossible to hit the upper trigger instead of the lower trigger since they are spaced quite far apart. I mean of course control is going to be an issue, it's a new control pad that nobody is used to. It takes time to get used to any new controls. The lack of being able to change them is a valid issue though. However I don't feel that those issues warrant a 7/10. I know that is still a respectable score, but most other sites are giving this game a 9/10. The lack of voice chat for online play would be my only real gripe, because I'd love to play with others, but it's impossible to communicate.

Neonridr commented on Wii U System Update Can Be Downloaded in the B...:

If the internet drops, it shouldn't be an issue. When I was downloading the update on the 18th, the connection dropped out a few times (well I got disconnected from the server it was downloading from, probably due to traffic). When I clicked to download the update again, it just picked up from where it left off. Downloading it is fine, it's when it's actually installing the update that you have to make sure you don't turn the system off.

Regardless, people should know better than doing anything while the system is updating itself. Start the download, and go for a walk or go eat dinner or something, then come back.

Neonridr commented on Watch: First US Wii U Advert Appears:

Again, this is an advertising campaign, so one would expect that to mean multiple commercials. If you look at the commercial right before the end, the screen pulls back showing hundreds of rooms that all make up the letter U. So obviously there are other rooms showcasing other games. The Question is, will they show another commercial that showcases other games going on in different rooms too?

Neonridr commented on Watch: First US Wii U Advert Appears:

Remember, we don't know if this is all there is. For all we know we'll see several versions of this commercial with different games shown in each of them. We might see another commercial that shows AC3, Batman, Madden, ZombiU with the same theme as this commercial (colored rooms).

Neonridr commented on Watch: First US Wii U Advert Appears:

@Shiromikio I agree, I thought it wasn't a terrible commercial (we all remember the first PS3 commercial with the crying freaky baby doll). They could have included a list of features to let the people who don't know what it is just how it differs from their Wii. Aside from missing ZombiU from the commercial (which seems to be the most popular game at launch), it wasn't half bad.

Neonridr commented on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Download Will Be...:

@Kirk you think that a box and an instruction manual accounts for half the cost of a game? You're crazy if you think that. They are pricing these games along the lines of Steam, who offers usually no more than a $10 discount for a virtual download over the physical copy. Now hopefully they put games on sale periodically to drive business and regularly reduce the price of older games.

Neonridr commented on First Impressions: Little Inferno:

It will be interesting to see how much a game like this retails for on the eShop. I, for one, am getting this game along with Trine 2 day one. The art style of this game is incredible, and I know it will be a very deep experience.

Neonridr commented on EA: FIFA 13 on Wii U is "Laying the Foundation":

@chiptoon actually the game only has a limited window to hit. Just like Madden and the NHL games always release around a certain time. If they were to hold off for 6 months they mine as well scrap the version and wait until Fifa 14 to release. At least the Wii U version has some enhanced visuals to give it a plus over the PS360 counterparts. But like Madden, this was to be expected.

Neonridr commented on Call Of Duty Elite Isn't Coming to Wii U at La...:

Okay nobody said that the Wii U won't get any DLC. Where you guys got that from the above statements is anyone's guess. All Activision said was they were unsure how the DLC will be delivered. That doesn't mean we won't see it. There isn't going to be any DLC packs for any version for at least a couple of months, and the Xbox has a 1 month exclusivity period anyways, so there is tons of time to iron out the details. As for the Elite service, who really cares? Honestly do you sit there and track all your stats because you are some hardcore gamer or something? Elite will eventually drop on the system as an update or whatever, and that's fine with me. As long as I am getting the game with all the modes and online matches, then that's fine with me. Don't worry guys, everything will get worked out.

NL: What's the strangest thing you've seen created so far?
BA: One of our designers made a truck that was made out of monster parts that could fly in the air and shoot exploding snakes.


Come on, how awesome is that. This game sounds like ridiculous fun!
