OorWullie commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Misses Out on Topp...:
I'm not really surprised about Kirby,pretty sure the touchscreen controls will have put many off of it.I didn't enjoy Canvas Curse on the DS and don't particularly like having to look at the Gamepad on the Murfy levels in Rayman so that's put me off.I'm sure it will review well but unless it goes on sale on the Eshop I can't see myself getting this.If only it was a traditional Kirby platformer with these graphics,it would have been a day one buy for me.
OorWullie commented on Nintendo Reveals Splatoon Will Be Playable At ...:
@Grumblevolcano It's usually when I try to play in the evening time.I'm 7 hours ahead of the UK so most of the US players will be in their beds,Japanese will be on their way to them and EU players,well there's not really much of them anyway.I'll usually find a match quick enough in Global but most of the time it's under 6 players.The Tournament mode though there doesn't seem to be anyone there when I check.I've had a few matches in the Mercedes cup at a time a lot of the US players would be on but thats morning time for me,so not ideal haha.Shame NL don't still run their weekly MK8 tournaments they had a while back.Never did get to play one.
Any chance of bringing them back NL?
@dr_nintendofan It's coming in May
Hopefully this gets the same sort of marketing as MK8 or Smash did,maybe even run the same sort of promotion they did with MK8.I'm a little concerned it wont sell enough and the online multiplayer will never quite live up to it's potential or die off after a few months.I even struggle to find players on Smash and MK8 at certain times of the day as it is.

@Cloud02 "Those tears of justice have now become flames down my face"
That's brilliant man haha.
I can't get my head around this.How did I not hear about this in the playground! I was always one of they kids in the loop about the these sort of things,or so i thought anyway! I never actually owned a NES myself but I often swapped my Master System with my friend and each time I would attempt to beat this from the beginning.Never did I succeed.If only I had known this!
OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (Europe):
@Hero-of-WiiU It's not going to be easy to play just on the Gamepad with the pointer controls,
@DBailey @PaperLucario I just searched for the PAL ISO file and it comes in at 7.93GB,so not too bad.That's assuming the eshop downloads are the same of course.
@andreoni79 The orange light is just to let you know something is either downloading or updating.It's no problem to have your Wii U in standby mode when downloading but it does seem to take longer than it would if it was turned on.I know this because I have had to download certain games several times due to getting a 'data corrupted' error which I think is down to my wifi momentarily dropping.You'll know your download has finished when the light turns red again.
I hope this is not the last week of the Wii games being released at the reduced price?Was hoping to get Punch Out also whenever it comes but I can't see me paying £17.99 for it.
Surely there can be no complaints about what's on offer this week?Metroid Trilogy is as 'refresh the eshop page until it appears' as you can get.I don't even plan on playing it for a while too but I will feel great joy just having it on my system haha.I'm interested to see how Rock 'N Racing turns out but I'll wait for the review first.Got a feeling it won't be as fun as the classics it's inspired by,hopefully I am wrong.

@Dr_Corndog Just say yes man,you're not alone
OorWullie commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:
While being a beautiful looking game,I never could get into Muramasa.I wanted to like it and tried several time to get into it but it was just too repetitive for me.I have played and loved many games of this style in the past too but something about this one just seemed to bore me.
OorWullie commented on Best Buy Is Cancelling Majora's Mask New 3DS X...:
Why not just make it only 1 per customer to begin with?It would save a lot of hassle and disappointment for those genuine buyers who will miss out.
I hope Zak and Wiki gets another chance in the spotlight.It was one of the first games I got for my Wii and would certainly place highly in a top 10 of my favourite on the system.I didn't even bother reading a review before buying it,something about the box art and having Capcom's name on it appealed to me.Unfortunately it didn't appeal in the same way to the vast majority of Wii owners.Hopefully a low price point and plenty of 9/10's will convince those who missed out first time to finally get this gem of a game.There really is nothing else quite like it!
OorWullie commented on Review: Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight (...:
@NbaJunkie If I was to have a guess I'd say it's because it was written by a different person.It's a long shot though..
OorWullie commented on Super Smash Bros. Melee and Wii U Confirmed fo...:
@MJKOP Yep,incredible stuff.There was nothing else quite like it at the time.
@Quorthon Does Injustice count? For me,Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast will always be the Grand Daddy of all fighting games.Any reasons why none of the series is included?
Great advertisement for the Wii U.I'm sure a fair few consoles will be shifted during and after this.

Good luck comments section,yer gonna need it
OorWullie commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:
Really looking forward to this but I'm a little concerned it won't sell enough and end up being hard to find matches online.I'm even having problems finding 1v1 matches on Smash at certain times of the day so it will certainly be an issue with Splatoon.There really needs to be a strong demo for this 2 or 3 weeks before release and with a big push from Nintendo leading up to it's release it might stand a chance.Maybe even do a special offer like they did with MK8.
OorWullie commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):
@Kirk Hellfire is a personal favourite of mine.I still play it from time to time but struggle to get anywhere near as far as I used to.
Exactly what Caniswolfred said above.I have tried to get into this a few times but I found it really slow and the mode 7 distracting,I didn't enjoy it at all to be honest.I've played quite a few of the best rated SNES shoot em ups and none of the are a patch on the Megadrives best in my opinion.
OorWullie commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:
Everything about this video is bad,from the first second to the last.An ugly amateur looking logo,bad shaky vertical video (unacceptable),horrible font,beginning his 'Developer conference' with the most horrendous looking game of an awful bunch,a visual novel game with bad grammar and then his most ambitious game looking like a bad PS game with a title that somewhat annoys me.The only positive I can see is that hopefully none of his games will come to Europe.Fair play to the guy for showing the face behind the shovelware though because it's sure as hell I wouldn't.
OorWullie commented on Rock 'N Racing Off Road Aims to Bring Mayhem t...:
@Bosh_Factory You have had me watching videos of Super Skidmarks on Youtube with a big smile on my face,I had completely forgotten about that game.Cheers fellow Brutal Deluxe fan From the Speccy to the Megadrive years,if a game had Codemasters on the box I didn't usually even need to read a review.It's a shame we likely wont ever see titles like that on the Eshop!
I didn't realise this would be coming so soon after last weeks announcement.I used to love these kind of games and look forward to seeing how this turns out.Fingers crossed they get the gameplay right and have a decent amount of tracks and variety in the arenas.Though from the video above I have my doubts about both.
OorWullie commented on GAME is Selling a 2DS + Mario Kart 7 for £79.99:
@KirbyKirbyKirby I would imagine Nintendo would be losing money like crazy too.
OorWullie commented on Wii U Games, Likely in Hardware Bundles, Enjoy...:
@Grumblevolcano You can still get it on Amazon for under a tenner.It's actually gone up in price as a few weeks ago it was around 7 quid.I don't think that's relative to it's rise in the charts though and as you say,it's likely due to an increase in console sales.Great to see more positive news for the Wii U,especially from the UK.
OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (Europe):
Nothing for me this week.I might have been tempted to get DKR if they had added Gamepad control but it's not been that long since I went through it.I think I'll just wait and get DKRTF when I finish up what I'm currently playing.Metroid Trilogy next week is a certainty though.Citizens of Earth looks nice enough but I didn't like Earthbound so I can't see me enjoying this any more.I'll wait for the reviews and see how it turns out.
OorWullie commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Adventure on Wii U an...:
@millarrp God help us all!
That's a tough decision if ever there was one.I voted for X but it felt almost criminal to go against Zelda,especially when it looks to be the biggest advance in the series since OOT.I can tell already that they both will be amongst the greatest games I've ever played and I really can't wait to lose lots of my life in them.Add Starfox into the mix (who knows,it might be an adventure too haha) and in the second half of the year we will all experience what is known as 'Gaming Bliss'.
OorWullie commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:
@BensonUii You should try the demos if you haven't already?I enjoyed my time enough with the Lost World demo to play it 3 or 4 times but Sonic Boom was off and uninstalled minutes after turning it on for the first time.It just felt horrible to control him and being a huge Sonic fan through the 90's it was upsetting to see him in such an amateur looking game.It's probably not even worth the effort of downloading it as you'll likely just be as disappointed as I was.
OorWullie commented on Review: 3D After Burner II (3DS eShop):
I can still remember the day my uncle who was on leave from the army,bought me this for the Megadrive.It was an incredible feeling to be able to play arcade games you drooled over in your own home.Unfortunately I don't own or want a 3DS,so come on SEGA bring us some Arcade Classics for the Wii U Daytona,SEGA Rally,Virtua Racing,Cop and Fighter are all waiting to be purchased on day one
OorWullie commented on Professional Super Smash Bros. Player Proposes...:
I wonder if he had it planned for a while or if that proposal at the tourney last week inspired him? Either way,good luck to them both.
As for some of the commenters above,lighten up ye miserable bunch!
OorWullie commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:
@HawkeyeWii Apparently it was only possible to port it by using the new models faster processor.Whether true or not only Nintendo knows.The console is not a new engine though,same console with just slightly faster CPU and a few other minor improvements.Think DSlite to DSi.
OorWullie commented on Elliot Quest and Blek Bringing More Indie Char...:
I've not seen any of the regular Kickstarter articles for a while.Is that because there is nothing new to report or have I just missed them?
I don't like the look of either of these to be honest.Elliot Quest may well turn out alright but its got that ten a penny Indie art style to it which doesn't appeal to me.Blek looks alright I suppose and is the kind of game I like to play for a few minutes here or there but only on my phone.Feels a bit stupid playing a Gamepad only puzzler like this when I've got my S4 next to me with much better screen.Noticed that when I was playing Rush,
OorWullie commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:
Undoubtedly a poor decision.It may well be that the XL vastly outsells the smaller model and makes sense from a business perspective but taking away that option that the rest of the world has will leave a bad taste in many fans mouths.Even for those who were probably going to get an XL anyway if given the choice,you get the mind set of wanting what you can't have.Also this after select Europeans getting the Ambassador version is not the way to go about keeping your loyal fan base on side!
OorWullie commented on New Nintendo Wii Remotes Come in Bowser and To...:
Being a passionate Celtic supporter that green and gold Bowser remote should really appeal to me more than the blue,white and red of the former club Rangers Toad remote but strangely it doesn't.I want that Toad remote and am willing to put up with the snidey remarks that will undoubtedly come my way from my Sevco loving mates!

OorWullie commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Hits Japan on 29th April:
I find it hard to believe they will release it anywhere close to the new Zelda.I'd imagine they will want to give each 1 a lot of attention to build the hype in the weeks up to their release so releasing such huge titles so close to each other doesn't make sense.I think they might be a lot further along with the localisation than we think they are.If I was putting a bet on I'd say we'll see this around August,with Starfox into the Autumn and then Zelda for December
OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):
@WWammy That's because the downloads are not available till later today or tomorrow depending where you are.
OorWullie commented on Nintendo Reveals New Range, Details and Compat...:
@rjejr Just to add to the confusion,you're also forgetting to add that you will need to delete your Smash amiibo data if you want to use them on the amiibo board in MP10 and vice versa as it is a 'read' game and each amiibo can only store 1 'read' game but other titles are only 'write' games so you wont need to delete your data with them.Not confusing in the slightest.
OorWullie commented on Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars Due in Ma...:
@SparkOfSpirit Got it on my phone,surprisingly playable
I love me some Lemmings type of games and have enjoyed 2 of the past entries in the series so i'll be getting this for sure.The price seems a little steep for what it is,makes me think they've added at least a 25% on it to cover themselves for the Cross Buy incentive but never mind.
OorWullie commented on Project Treasure Is Bandai Namco's Wii U Exclu...:
@conman2012 Exactly,some Nintendo fans really are an ungrateful bunch.No wonder 3rd parties steer clear.We're getting an exclusive 3rd party game,that could turn out to be great and even if it's not it's FREE so why complain?Maybe it needs to be played online and the only way to build up a decent user base is by offering the base game for free?If it was released as an online only game at full retail price hardly anyone would buy it and the whole game would be pointless.So just wait and see folks,if Nintendo are also helping them with it,it could turn out to be amazing!
OorWullie commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:
@PokeMario About the lack of Yoshi and Mario Maker,I think we will see another Direct focused on them next month.Unless it's changed they're still down for Q1 releases so there kind of has to be by the beginning of March at the latest or they'll come out with a whimper.After the focus Nintendo put on Mario Maker at the Game Awards I can't see them letting that happen.Fingers crossed
It was a pretty solid Direct I think,the Metroid Trilogy alone made it a success for me.Having not played it since it came out on the Gamecube I can't wait to go through it again,especially with the pointer controls I loved so much in MP3.I don't really have any interest in the 3DS but that Majoras Mask limited edition is extremely tempting.I still think I'll pass anyway.The 3DS did need to have it's time in the spotlight though so was happy to see it got a lot of attention.I think we might see another Direct next month focused on the Wii U as Yoshi and Mario Maker are still down for Q1 releases.As it is right now the next official release date we have is Splatoon in May.Or am I wrong?
I must say I was a bit disappointed at the start though,I thought that intro was for a new Wii U game,it looked amazing.I actually said "YEEESSS" out loud and then when I saw it changing to the 3DS screen and those pixelated graphics my head dropped in dismay haha.Overall I enjoyed it though and it wa my first time watching one on the big screen through the Wii U browser.
