OorWullie commented on Double Dose Of Sin & Punishment Arrives On Nor...:

Really loved the N64 original on Wii VC but just couldn't get into the Wii sequel the same way for some reason.Not sure why that was but it just never grabbed my attention in the same way the original did.Maybe if I gave it another go that might change.

Like the look of it but it might just be too frustrating for me.I like a challenge but not to the point I have my neighbours banging on my door telling me to stop yelling profanities.I'm still waiting on Insanity's Blade,that looked more my kind of thing.

OorWullie commented on Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows Development C...:

Really looking forward to this.I still fire Shovel Knight on from time to time to play a level or 2 and the music from the village regularly pops into my head.Hopefully it'll arrive tomorrow,gives me a couple of weeks to complete it before I'm in platforming heaven with Super Mario Maker.

OorWullie commented on Mario History: Super Mario All-Stars - 1993:

I remember reading the reviews for this in several magazines in my local John Menzies when it came out.98% in one,99% in an other and I'm sure the very first 100% I'd ever seen.It was a game that I had always wanted to play but never got the chance till around 20 years later on a ROM.I can understand Nintendo not wanting to put it on VC as it would prevent them selling the originals separately but they should at least offer them individually or even include the remastered ones with a purchase of the originals.

I've played a good few rounds now and I like it,well when there is actually a proper scrap over it I do.The last few rounds I played there were over in no time,I didn't check the time that had passed but it felt like less than 30 seconds.I was waiting longer in the lobby than some of the matches lasted.I still prefer Tower Control though I think.

I've never liked Iron Maiden,even when i went through my 'mosher' period.Always loved their album covers and posters but never really gave their music a chance,instantly dismissed them as 'cheesy' rock.I think it was because of my big sis telling a young and impressionable me that after her 'death rock' period finished and she turned into a mad raver.

@Bass_X0 You can pre order a digital code for it from Gamesrocket for £25 or at least it was last time I checked.You'll receive it to your email within 10 minutes of it being released.I buy from them all the time,got Splatoon,Yoshi and Donkey Kong TF from them digitally for around £25 too.Great website.

OorWullie commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

@Yorumi Think of it like it's rewarding you for playing it,it evolves the more you play it just as any other game would.I'm sure the tools available at the beginning will be enough to have fun with,then there's the pre made levels and all the user content to muck around with until the quality levels start appearing.There's plenty there day one and it's only 9 days,not worth complaining about really.

Would you have figured Photoshop or Visual Studio out as a kid without being shown what to do?

OorWullie commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

@Yorumi While I can't disagree the handholding in some games can be too much I have no problems with the way they approached Splatoon or what they're doing here.Splatoon's approach was explained by the dev,they wanted everyone to master the levels and each weapon gradually and because of that everyone has mastered each map and mode and it's helped evolve everyone's playstyle on each mode and map to what it is now.Plus if all modes were available to choose from it might not be so easy to get into a match as the players online would be more spread out.I know shooters on other consoles don't do the same but this is Nintendo's first time at this so i can cut them some slack.I'm not sure if you actually own it or not,if not you need to change that.The game is sublime.

As for SMM ,if you are already familiar with making your own levels and are frustrated due to the timed unlock,you are in the absolute minority.The vast majority of gamers no matter how experienced they are have never created their own levels for any game.I've been playing since the early 80's and I would have no idea how to go about making a good level without having the tools at my disposal to experiment.I've got some ideas for what'll try but whether it comes off or not is another thing.I will need to be eased into it and this will help.I don't want to be overwhelmed with options as it could put me off.

I've got 5450 stars that I'm saving in the hope more games will be added in the last few weeks or at least what's there will be reduced.I've been tempted a couple of times to use them but for all that is currently there to choose from I can wait.Those 750 free stars I got the other day could come in useful.

@gatorboi352 The gyro controls mostly,without them it wouldn't be the same but it's together with having the map in your hands to keep an eye on what's going on and plan your next move that adds an extra layer of immersion for me.It's nothing huge but it's better because of it.I agree it would also be amazing with the Wiimote but that would mean having a big map on the screen at all times and with all the colour on screen it wouldn't be easy on the eyes.For me,it's one of those rare games where the hardware,controller and game truly seem made for each other.

Splatoon just wouldn't be the same experience without it.It could easily be played on the other consoles with a few workarounds and would still be a great game to play regardless but without the Gamepad you would be missing a part of what makes it that extra bit special.I'm sure Starfox will be the same once we get the hang of it.The Gamepad might not be hugely innovative in it's features but when used right it can definitely make a game better than it would be without it.It'll be a backward step if they abandon it for the next gen.

I wouldn't be surprised if Europe gets one version with both paths while North Americans have to choose and/or pay more.We have been getting the cheaper deals on new games for a while now.Splatoon,Yoshi,Super Mario Maker and Starfox can all be bought or pre ordered physically or digitally for under £25 ($39),Xenoblade X for £31 ($48).If you're from the UK it's never been this cheap to be a console gamer.

Just watched the Gunman Clive HD collection trailer through the Eshop and it looks fantastic.I've never played the 3DS versions but they always appealed to me so it'll be a day one buy for me.Really looking forward to Steamworld Heist and RIVE too and of course FAST Racing Neo.Great selection!

OorWullie commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Wii U Bundle and Specia...:

I've not played XC for a while and would love to visit it's vast world again but I think I'll just wait for XCX.The Gamepad support is tempting but I've got too much of a backlog to get through and with Splatoon there teasing me to play it all the time it's not easy.XCX will likely cost £49.99 on the Eshop so even with this discount it's still £10 more than I can get an Eshop code from Gamesrocket.

OorWullie commented on Review: Mario Tennis (Wii U eShop / N64):

I love a good tennis game.I've had a few over the years,from Super Tennis on the Mastersystem,Wimbledon and Pete Sampras on the Megadrive,Virtua Tennis on the Dreamcast to the fantastic Grand Slam Tennis on Wii but for some reason I never got round to getting this for my 64.The only Mario Tennis game I've played is the GBA one and I hated it,far far too much nonsense to skip through to play an actual game.I am looking forward to Ultra Smash but I'd have been happier with golf as you can sink tens of hours into them,Hopefully it'll have good online and a proper career mode without all the nonsense,

I've not played this for a few months but I'll certainly be checking out the tournament mode.Just finished Yoshi's WW this morning and started Dues Ex the other day so together with Smash,Splatoon and MK8 I've got plenty to keep me busy until SMM arrives.

@Haywired I had something similar in a level on World 5,someone had written ''Worst level in the game'' and another "so frustrating,hate this level''.It put me right off playing it before it had even begun.It turned out to be not so bad after all but was definitely off putting to see that written as i was about to play it.

OorWullie commented on Splatoon's Big Update is Coming on 6th August:

@NintendoFan990 I hope they do too,I want to feel like I'm making some sort of progression in Turf Wars but will it not mess with the matchmaking even more?I'm foolishly hoping for player stats to be added,I know I'm in the winning side far more than the losing side but I want to know by how much.Things like longest winning streak and how often I've been the best team player would be nice to know too.

Hopefully nothing much changes with Urchin Underpass,it's one of my favourites along with Blackbelly Skate Park and Bluefin Depot.I found it strange to see BD as the least popular map among Japanese players,I think it's fantastic for all 3 modes,always happy to see it in rotation.Not sure what a Tag Match is,any ideas ?

OorWullie commented on Video: Camp Triggerfish is Splatoon's Newest M...:

@Aromaiden I'm sure it'll be up next,usually a new map when introduced features in the first few rotations.

Camp Triggerfish is certainly the most complex map yet anyway.I thought it was too big my first couple of games as I hardly saw anyone but I guess everyone was just figuring it out.Had a few battles where one of us were ahead by a large margin totally turn the other way once the floodgates opened.The game just keeps getting better and better,can't wait to see what they've got in store for us next.
