OorWullie commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I can't believe that such a lame 1 sided talking point has amassed so many comments.I see women with far more revealing outfits every single day whether it be down the beach,walking their dog,doing exercise,standing in 7/11,basically just being women.Leave such petty issues... go out and enjoy life!
Please, let's not go that route with this discussion — TBD

OorWullie commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

This has to be the worst article I have ever read on Nintendolife,it's ridiculously bad. When Samus' Smash outfit was revealed,out of all the comments left only really you and a handful of others had an issue with it.It's hardly a pair of micro shorts and skimpy bra with boobs hanging out she is wearing is it?By that logic the majority of female sports women must be sexualised too then?And as several previously pointed out,what about the sexualisation of Captain Falcon?Poor Falcon being exploited for the enjoyment of female eyes. ;)

Regardless of the article, insults and attacks are not tolerated here. If you have particular issues you wish to tell the staff, use the contact form instead. -Lz

@sadsack777 If only it were that simple.GTA V cost £170 million to make so there is no way Nintendo could go with a budget that high for a new IP on a struggling console.Maybe if the Wii U was selling Wii numbers they would take a risk but with only 6 million or so Wii U's out there it aint gonna happen.

As much as I'd love it to be Metroid,I would also love them to try their hand at survival horror.Whether it be a new IP or Eternal Darkness 2 I'm sure they can come up with something unique and special.The horror genre seems to be making a bit of a comeback and after seeing how amazing the new Silent Hills looks it would be a shame if the Wii U was to miss out.With Wii U sales as they are though I'm not sure Nintendo would risk a new IP so Eternal Darkness it is ;)

@Hy8ogen I like my fighting games whether 2D or 3D.Soul Calibur 2 on Dreamcast was my favourite but I just cant get into SSB at all.I had Melee and Brawl and found them rather disappointing.I'm willing to give the Wii U version a try at some time as it does look good (although the graphics not so much) and I'm sure the Online will be vastly improved from the mess that was brawl's.I've got a feeling the 3DS version is gonna disappoint a lot of people though.

I remember being really excited for this back in the day.After seeing the screenshots in MEGA magazine in the preceding months I'd convinced myself that this game was going to blow my mind.Then after playing it for 20 minutes I realised it was awful and took it back to the store the same day for an exchange.

Would love to see Road Avenger make a comeback.

The fact you can plug an external hard drive in to the Wii U,surely it must be possible to play media directly from there rather than having to stream it?A modded Wii can do it rather well without official external HD support so I'm sure the Wii U can too!

I cannot wait till this ,Shapes of Grey ,Don't Touch Anything Red,SUPER ROBO MOUSE and SPIKEY WALLS comes out.Hopefully I'll have got through my back log of SHUT THE BOX,Midtown Crazy Race and The Letter by the time they do.Great times to be a gamer ;)

OorWullie commented on Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop):

I had the original and never thought much of it at the time.As a shooter it really was nothing special,pretty run of the mill and not even close to the Megadrives best and the reviews at the time reflected that.Most of the praise it did receive was due to the unique graphics so I can't see how it deserves a 9 in this day and age?Especially considering it's priced about the same as it was 20 years ago!

I'm not 1 to complain about review scores but between this and X-type earlier I think you both have got a bit carried away.Considering Wii mode plays host to some of the greatest shooters ever made it makes these scores even more baffling.

OorWullie commented on Review: XType Plus (Wii U eShop):

@gage_wolf I'm with you man,games like this have no place on home consoles,3DS maybe but not on Wii U.You can play this for free on your browser so why bother?Even better,download Sky Force HD for free on Android which features more variety in its opening few seconds than this does in its entirety.

I love SHMUPS,including Geometry Wars which I suppose this could be compared to but in no way is this worth even close to an 8.Embarassing!

OorWullie commented on Shin'en Multimedia to Finally Show Off Fast Ra...:

I enjoyed the first game but man was it tough.1 little error and your chances of making the podium were over.If they drop the black/white thing and make it all about the racing then this could be amazing.I'm sure Shinen are well aware of the demand for F-Zero so I've got a feeling they'll give us something pretty close to it.

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+ ;)

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?

@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!

@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"

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.
