Nintenjoe64 commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

@Kirk I'm with you on that one. I thought the game held up on its own (especially for a Wiiware) and the orbs made it into a cerebral puzzle as well as a racer.

Hopefully they've been using the last couple of years to make an F-Zero mode, Wipeout mode and they can keep the orb collecting as a separate mode. 3 Futuristic racing games in one!!!!



Nintenjoe64 commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham DLC Season Pass i...:

@arronishere I didn't realise that, heard lots of other complaints though. I still can't see what it could be in 2014 that would make it so hard for them to approve DLC or updates. It does seem like the majority of publishers have these problems on eshop but then there's random little things that get patched quickly.

Maybe they only have one person doing this role. Maybe they actually do use Pikmin.

I wonder if they ever started any Lego City DLC. I remember them saying they were going to make it possible but I am pretty sure that game failed to meet expectations.

@ACK next they'll be charging per brick!

@Kogorn733 I can't see what it could be. AC3 had DLC right from the beginning, games like Zen Pinball don't seem to have any issues with DLC.

Maybe Nintendo ask for too much money but I suspect it's because they think DLC just doesn't sell on Wii U unless it's made by Nintendo.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Lylat Wars / Star Fox 64:

I've played every game reviewed so far. I guess that is more to do with the N64's limited library of amazing games than me having played loads of games.

They should definitely have done something with StarFox 2 by now. Even if it was just a minigame hidden within a game.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

@3DSfan134 It's for Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. There were some dual controller options for them. It wasn't really necessary because the controls weren't as precise as in a modern game.

On a side note, I read an old review of an early FPS on PS that supported the first dual shock and they complained that using one stick to move and one to aim was stupid.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Masahiro Sakurai Provides Another Look at Supe...:

So is Wii U just 1-4 player VS at the moment?

I hope its Wii U specific modes are so good they didn't want to spoil the surprise (and were scared of devaluing the 3DS version) because otherwise it's looking like they're going to be an afterthought!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

@ajcismo EA (and possibly Activision) have made just as many, if not more, good games than Ubisoft have on Nintendo systems. Regardless of how scummy some of EA's recent exploits have been, their efforts on Wii surpassed many of Nintendo's and I have been very satisfied with ME3, NFS and FIFA on Wii U. Modern Warfare and Goldeneye on the Wii were both great efforts from Activision and BO2 on Wii U isn't too shabby with its FOC lag-free online!

Having said that, neither EA or Activision have attempted to make a proper Wii U game and Ubisoft actually did.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

I still might buy this game but everyone knows it will be £10 within 3 months of release so I might finish my backlog and pick it up late. It's a shame because I would like another ZombiU but Ubi wouldn't so what's the point in supporting this.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Pokkén Tournament's Concept Even Shocked The ...:

I wonder if the Wii U version will require/use Amiibo figurines.....

I doubt Nintendo could make this and not port it when they struggle to get 6 retail games a year on Wii U. Then again, there's loads of people calling for them to do some quick and dirty HD remakes of Gamecube games and they won't even do that.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 64:

I loved this game but ISS98 was better. I wish Konami would make a new ISS for Wii U or just make Pro Evo more like these games and bring that to Wii U.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Trust Us, You Need This Super Famicom Box Art ...:

I would love to see a Commodore 64 box art version of this book. All we had to judge games on in the 80s was box art and some of the box art was genius. I used to buy cassettes with a cool alien picture on the front and get home to find I had bought a choose your own adventure book that didn't feature aliens.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

Karma will get them all. Nintendo used to bully 3rd parties and now everyone bullies them. Karma in action.

Now we are seeing multiple publishers (who pretty owe their existence to Nintendo), continually stabbing Nintendo and its fans in the back. They'll not last too long doing that, especially if Nintendo leave the hardware business. The worst thing that could happen to those 3rd parties is having to compete with Nintendo releasing games on the same systems as them.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

I don't mind this skipping Wii U but it does seem harsh on the 3DS owners who pretty much made this game possible. Imagine the outpouring of internet hatred if RE7 turns out to be a Wii U exclusive. It would probably be good for the series like RE4 was :)



Nintenjoe64 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles Coming to 3DS in Japan:

I think I am content with my Wii version but I would buy an HD Wii U version (at a budget price) and am half hoping they include the original in 'X' like they did with Bayonetta. I won't hold my breath though.

If they bring a Xenoblade themed 3DS bundle to the West I will get one....
