@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.



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

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.

Nice one,I might make it out there one day.Just had a look at flights and I can get there from Thailand for pretty cheap so maybe next year.If I do I'll be sure to use this article to save me from some aimless wandering.The toughest part will be trying to convince whoever I'm travelling with to spend a day going to see a plaque on an abandoned building.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:

@FragRed I'm not so sure I am.Nintendo has never managed to sell people on the Gamepad and what its actual purpose was but this game does show what it can do simply and effectively.Yes it would be possible to do on other consoles but without a touchpad and stylus it would be pretty cumbersome.'Design your own HD Mario levels with a touchpad and stylus to share with the world' is an easier message to get across to the average consumer than 'asynchronous gameplay'.



OorWullie commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

This game doesn't stand a chance when it's released due to articles like this.It might well be that the online mode that's not been tried yet is the strongest part of the game but I guess we'll never find out as there will be hardly anyone online to play it with.



OorWullie commented on Video: 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Trailer Confirm...:

Sonic Twosday ,I remember it well.One of the most hyped and anticipated game releases ever.I had the day off school and was at the door of Dixon's at 9am sharp feeling like the coolest kid around as all my mates would have to wait till after 4 to play it.Those graphics were truly magical to me at the time.An all time classic



OorWullie commented on Review: The Stonecutter (Wii U eShop):

Brave Rock studios deserve to be slated for this.It I worked for them I'd be petrified,watching all my hard work ungravel before my eyes with this rock bottom review.Hopefully they will be a bit boulder with their next release.



OorWullie commented on Review: Don't Crash (Wii U eShop):

Just downloaded this on my phone and have been playing it for the last 10 minutes,managed to get a decent score.It's as basic as it gets and doesn't belong on a console but a 1/10 game shouldn't have been able to hold my attention for 10 minutes.I only stopped playing because ironically it crashed.So provided it plays the same as the version I played I find the score to be harsh..I rate this review 1/10.



OorWullie commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

I wonder,after this flops because PS4 and Xbone owners were not willing to pay full price for an inferior port of a 2012 Wii U game that can be had for a fiver,will Ubisoft withdraw support saying "you're not buying our games" ?



OorWullie commented on ​Early Adopters of Xeodrifter Actually May N...:

@Peach64 I'm sure they will carry over this time.The Wii U Eshop has been pushed a lot by Nintendo and with 1st party sales and promotions it seems they are trying to encourage us to download more and more.If everything we have purchased ,especially full price titles is lost then the internet will explode in a fury to the equivalent of 10 bad E3's combined.The damage that would cause,especially as the news would come out before the NX even launches would be too big for Nintendo to repair,I'm sure they are well aware of that.I certainly hope they are anyway.



OorWullie commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

@hcfwesker You only needed to go back a couple of years to Rayman Legends.Released on all consoles at the same time yet sold best on Wii U which had a much smaller user base. If they had actually released it on time it's sales on Wii U would likely have been much higher,maybe even more than all the other consoles combined.If Ubisoft had kept their word who knows,maybe the Wii Us fortunes could have turned out different.That delay happened at the worst possible time for the Wii U and it's never really recovered from it.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 9th July (Europe):

You would think that with a 50 million install base some indies would be trying to bring some worthwhile titles over to the 3DS Eshop.Apart from the occasional mobile game and themes it's like it's been abandoned altogether since they released the New model.



OorWullie commented on Fire Emblem Fates Storms to Number One in Japan:

Makes me wonder,with the momentum the Wii U has had the last few weeks in Japan and the success of Splatoon in the west,if in an alternative reality Nintendo did have a great E3 with Zelda,Metroid and another big multiplayer game like Splatoon coming soon together with a price cut if the Wii U's fortunes could have been turned around somewhat.At least enough to make it a viable console for Nintendo to continue to support for another couple of years.Or is that just crazy thinking?



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd July (Europe):

Can't believe they have gave us the PAL version again,well I can actually as its Nintendo but still.So that means us Europeans have never got to legally play the optimal version of this masterpiece?Think I will get Advance Wars 2,loved the first one.I want to give Fire Emblem a try,what's the best one I should start with?Preferably one with a tutorial as great as the original Advance Wars.



OorWullie commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Cuddles Up to Fourth Spot...:

Fantastic game,great to see it come in so high.I didn't expect that at all ,at least in the UK anyway.The soundtrack deserves as much praise as the graphics,just beautiful.If this game doesn't put a smile on your face then you should seek help.



OorWullie commented on Video: Spin a New Yarn with these Top Ten Ways...:

I bought the digital code from a German retailer so I'm eagerly waiting for it to hit midnight in central Europe.It will be 5 am for me here in Thailand so far from ideal but it's Yoshi in an HD world of wool so sleep will have to wait!



OorWullie commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

Great review Thomas,thoroughly enjoyed reading that.I had no doubts this was going to be a classic and this review confirms that.Soon as it's on the Eshop this beauty is mine.



OorWullie commented on Unreleased Splatoon Maps And Weapons Get Detai...:

All those weapon choices and I only ever use one,Aerospray RG.I should really get out my comfort zone with it and try changing how I play the game but everything else just seems inferior to that bad boy.I like to leave inkmines in narrow passageways and take great satisfaction tempting a foe to follow me round the corner only to step on my mine and you cant top unleashing an inkstrike near the enemy base and charging in John Rambo style and picking them off like flies with the trusty Aerospray RG.One time I managed to take all 4 opponents out myself within second with the inkstrike and charge method.I've been unsuccessfully trying to recreate that destructive move ever since.



OorWullie commented on French Retailers Are Cancelling Yoshi Woolly W...:

Maybe it was by an angry warehouse working Nintendo fan who already sick of hearing about the damn things was tipped over the edge into a full blown amiibo rage from that dreadful E3 performance?Skylanders amiibo may have been the tipping point!
