OorWullie commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@PleaseUnderstan I think the report is actually meaning Mario Maker.If it was a track editor being added to Kart I don't think it would be described as a new title and as a "Mario racing game that lets users make their own courses".I'm not sure about those inaccuracies you mention,I just woke up so comparing numbers are beyond me ;)



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

I just downloaded Midtown Crazy Race on my S4 and I'm happy to report it's crap!I only played it for 1 minute,maybe less but here is my brief review.

Shocking frame rate,dark visuals,seriously bad music,awful motion controls,little choice of things to do except drive around aimlessly practising or drive through hideous looking checkpoints for a few seconds to move onto the next track wondering to yourself 'why am I playing this?'.
Overall not even worth the battery or time I wasted downloading it! It does have a cool title screen though so I'll give it that but it's ruined by tiny little menu options. It' has also got online multiplayer but no one was playing and for good reason.There is also a PRO version available for 2 quid but seeing as only 50 poor suckers have paid to download it in 7 months tells you all you need to know.

Oor Wullie's verdict - 0/10



OorWullie commented on Review: Strike Force Foxx (3DS eShop):

@Spectator It sure was.I actually played it not that long ago and it's held up pretty well.
@Captain_Gonru I forgot to add,the first 3 were on the SNES but are inferior to the Megadrive versions.Not sure about the other 2 but I remember Desert being zoomed in too much making it hard to figure out where to go.



OorWullie commented on Review: GAIABREAKER (Wii U eShop):

I'm currently really enjoying Skyforce HD on Android.It looks great with satisfying destruction and surprisingly plays well enough with touch controls.There is far too much grinding though to power up your ship unless you want to spend money.Would love to see it come to the Eshop with a better power up system and of course,normal controls.



OorWullie commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

Mobile gaming can only benefit from having guys like these involved going forward and I for one can't wait to see what they come up with.There are some really great games on the Play Store just now that take up most of my gaming time like Skyforce,Soccer Stars,8 Ball Pool,Table Top Racing and they all look and play beautifully on my S4.The Unreal Engine 4 demo 'Epic Citadel' on maximum settings looks as good as anything on Wii U graphically so with guys like Tim Stamper involved the futures looking very bright for Mobile gaming ;)



OorWullie commented on Areal Passes Kickstarter Goal, Yet More Peculi...:

@Action51 The company that developed S.T.A.L.K.E.R have since broken up and formed Vostok Games.When they were asked about West Games they said they had no knowledge of them and that they had never worked with them before and warned backers that this was a scam.They posted this on either a forum or their own website (cant remember?) but then later removed it,which West Games then used as proof that they must be for real.Now it seems they've opened new accounts to spam the comment section so none of the comments questioning its validity can be found,perhaps forgetting that it's being covered by all the main gaming sites.

If this miraculously does prove to be genuine then I'll eat my Wii Remote+ ;)



OorWullie commented on Review: Mario Power Tennis (Wii U eShop / Game...:

I gave this a go once but the amount of text you have to get through before you can get on the court and then between matches is too much.Not sure if it's like that all the way through but it put me off enough to give up on it and never try it again.The golf is the same from what I remember?



OorWullie commented on Weirdness: 3D-Printed Game Boy-Themed Case Cov...:

@TheRealThanos Yes of course but I think name calling when the writers clearly going to read the comments and is a member here is a bit out of order.If your avatar was a photo of yourself and I replied with "I agree with your point but Christ man you are 1 ugly F'r.What happened?'' .Yep,nothing to get upset about!



OorWullie commented on Save The Universe From Evil Vegetables In Upco...:

@Kirk From the single IOS review I could find online it seems that it is broken but I agree,it surely took them more than a week to put it together.

"To top it off, the game frequently crashes, experiences inexplicably long load times, and generally feels unfinished.

Ice Cream Surfer has serious problems, problems that make it not worth recommending despite the endearing graphics. But, it isn’t unfixable. Here’s hoping this one gets another scoop"



OorWullie commented on Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Releas...:

Great game that I never managed to finish back in the day,I bought it for my S4 last week and although the controls aren't ideal,it looks fantastic.It's cool how you can switch between the new and old style with a swipe of the screen.



OorWullie commented on Video: This New Insanity's Blade Trailer Cuts ...:

Such an improvement from the last trailer I saw,which really didn't look good at all.I'm playing through Rondo of Blood just now for the 1st time and loving it and now look forward to having a crack at this.I wish Nintendo would release some 16bt remakes for the Eshop :)



OorWullie commented on Turtle Tale Slowly Moves Closer to the eShop o...:

Someone posted a link in the forum yesterday that has details of all the 240 indie games supposedly coming to Wii U,some look great but this looks up there with the worst of them.Maybe it plays better than it Leigh Griffiths for Celtic ;)



OorWullie commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I've never really been a fan of any Kirby games I've played before but I picked up Return to Dreamland the other day and I'm really enjoying it.When not breezing through that I'll likely be playing 8 Ball Pool on my S4.



OorWullie commented on Forgotten Classics: Resident Evil Code: Veronica:

The Dreamcast original was the 1st RE I played so i couldn't compare it to the earlier releases but I remember thoroughly enjoying it at the time.I got stuck on a fight with this big long armed thingy on a plane with not enough ammo and only 1 save point so.I gave up after that.



OorWullie commented on Australian Classification Board Rates Xtreme S...:

@unrandomsam I've never heard of this either but apparently it's supposed to be quite good and was well reviewed back in the day.To quote IGN ''This is one of, if not the most beautifully-styled games I've seen on the Game Boy Color''.It received an 8/10 in both Gamespot and IGN so may be a 'classic' after all :)



OorWullie commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:

Those graphics are truly fantastic! Fingers crossed the online is smooth and at least as good as the Wii version.If not,then there's no point really.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

Advance Wars is such a great game.I've never been a fan of turn based strategy games but this is just too good.It's worth every penny of what they're asking for it and more.Even the tutorial is fun and by the time it ends you know exactly what your doing.Some of the later battles can be really intense and go on for ages but it never gets frustrating.The Gamepad would be perfect for this game too,if only it made use of it.



OorWullie commented on Matters Of Import: Steel Empire Is Flying High...:

@Damo That's cool to know.Mean Machines will always hold a special place in my heart as I got hit by a car crossing the road behind a bus I just got off,reading a copy haha.

I played Hellfire and Gynoug not long ago actually and they are as good today as they were back then.I also played Thunderforce IV again too but still couldn't get into it.Yeah the height can be confusing but I also find the graphics,as good as they are,made it hard to tell what was going on at times.



OorWullie commented on Matters Of Import: Steel Empire Is Flying High...:

@Damo Cheers for the link man,I can actually recall reading that back in the day haha.Hellfire was definitely my favourite,probably followed by Gynoug or Biohazard Battle.For some reason I could never get into Thunderforce IV either despite all the glowing reviews.

Curious,is that you doing the retrospective comments I take it?



OorWullie commented on Matters Of Import: Steel Empire Is Flying High...:

This sure is getting a lot of coverage.I was never much a fan of the original,it looked great but really wasn't up to much as a shooter.Far from being 1 of the Megadrives best but still good to see it making a comeback (just not at $30) :)
