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) :)



OorWullie commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

This is really poor on Nintendo's part and no matter what others are saying,it can be done.I have a GBA emulator on my phone and I'm able to play multiplayer with my mate at Advance Wars.Obviously it's different technology but if hackers are able to do it,then Nintendo can too!



OorWullie commented on Review: Ice Hockey (Wii U eShop / NES):

These old sport titles should really have been released as a set,called Nintendo Sports and released for say $10.They could even have gone further and made it where you can have a multiplayer tournament across all sports,or be even more ambitious and add online play.Its Nintendo though and sadly VC and ambition don't go together.

We need your help, Retro! Wii U has been declared doomed! Our console is being trampled on by the enemy and they're trying to take all the fun out of gaming! Our company alone can't do the job! Hurry Retro!”

OorWullie commented on Pure Chess DLC Will Be Available Day One, And ...:

I downloaded it on Android the other day but it wouldn't let me register a new account or log in with my Google account,kept putting me back to start screen.Even tried forgot password but the email never came through.Tried several times and the whole thing was that cumbersome I gave up and uninstalled it.Don't know if its been caused by the update to Kit Kat 4.4 I just got?Hopefully they sort it out!



OorWullie commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

I must say,I'm gutted about this.I still spend a lot of time playing Mario Kart on Wii so I'll miss that,no doubt.I understand 3rd parties turning theirs off but for a game like MK,the only game where Nintendo really nailed online game the servers should stay on for at least another couple of years.There's no way MK 8 can ever match it's predecessors community with so few Wii U's out there.



OorWullie commented on Rare Nintendo World Championships Cartridge Ev...:

@Platypus101 Haha more than likely yes but at least at the start they will have to be more seller friendly to establish themselves.I am speaking from experience, I have had thousands locked up in paypal for 6 months with no reason given and been talked to like I was the scum of the earth.



OorWullie commented on Rare Nintendo World Championships Cartridge Ev...:

I hope the seller doesn't have his Ebay bill coming round anytime soon as he will need to cover the fees of around $9,500 until they decide to refund them to his account.Along with Paypal they are a truly evil company and I long for the day a competitor comes along and puts them out of business!



OorWullie commented on Mass Market Price And Mario Kart 8 Will Revers...:

@ULTRA-64 Thats what I've been waiting on them announcing.They say a while back that they have an amazing idea but won't release any details until its ready so no one can copy it.There was even an article about here if I remember correctly?I might be wrong but I'm sure they also said they would tell us more about it nearer Xmas?Ah well!



OorWullie commented on Remake Request: Shining The Holy Ark:

@Nintenjoe64 Great choice of games there man,MSR was superb.I got my Saturn at launch with Virtua Fighter,Daytona and Clockwork Knight but my best memories of it has to be playing my mates at Sega Rally and Euro 96.I lost a few jobs because of the latter haha



OorWullie commented on Review: EDGE (3DS eShop):

I have only tried the demo n Android and found the touch controls very frustrating.I imagine it would be much better with proper controls.Great to see them releasing it at such a low price.



OorWullie commented on Dr. Luigi announced for Wii U eShop:

Along with Mario Kart,Dr Mario was far and away my most played game on the Wii.I'd fire it on when I got home from backshift at 12 and still be playing online battles when the sun come up haha.I'd then go to bed and dream about giant combos (really) I'm sure it cost 1000 pts on the Wii,but with the amount of times I clocked in late for work and got docked salary because of my addiction to popping those pills and that music,it probably cost me the equivalent of well over 10,000 in the end :-)



OorWullie commented on Video: Nintendo Serves Up Another Batch of And...:

Plan D - Find those old scripts,get on the phone to Ant & Dec and/or Chris Tarrant's agents and try and get them on board.If they can't / won't do it then try either Lenny Henry or Andre & Steffi,preferably Lenny though,hes funnier.Get them in asap and lets pump those adverts like its the glory days of 07/08 all over again.Its bulletproof!



OorWullie commented on Review: Toki Tori (Wii U eShop):

Great game and worth every penny.Along with World of Goo,this was probably my favourite Wii Ware release.I even managed to complete it which is rare for me.

@rjejr It's been a while since I played it but from what I remember,it's gets quite challenging about half way through but never frustrating,just brain boggling haha.Cant go wrong at $2 :-)
