@ThomasBW84 Cheers,I didn't mean for that sound like a criticism of NL in any way.I just find it baffling there isn't a trailer for it on the Eshop.I'm not sure who's responsible for that,if it's Nintendo or the publisher but how can they expect anyone to shell out £39.99 on the strength of 3 screenshots and a short description.It's like they know it'll sell poorly so why bother

I just had a look at Marvel Avengers on the Eshop and there isn't even a video there for it,just 3 screenshots only.I only follow Nintendolife news for the most part and I know absolutely nothing about this game other than it being another LEGO game.Considering how rare 3rd party titles are on Wii U and this being a relatively big one,you'd think they'd have added a trailer for it on the Eshop.

@GammaNoises I've never played Ratchet & Clank so I can't really compare but I agree,it's a concept that most definitely needs expanded and explored.I often go back to Octo Valley just to replay some random stages and my only gripe would be there is too few levels and a complete lack of challenge The potential is there though for Splatoon to be one of the greatest 3D platformer's ever made.Whether it will be in the form of DLC,a stand-alone game or the inevitable sequel.

Not happy with this. I bought it with my remaining Club Nintendo points just before it closed. It wasn't exactly cheap in point terms. I've only used it a couple of times but it's not the point. If it was a free app for everyone then OK but as of right now it's still for sale.

Bayonetta 2 is only £12 on the Nintendo store yet it only jumped from 20th to 18th on the Wii U chart.Considering the 1st place Wii U title hasn't even made the top 40,it's probably being generous saying it sold 100 copies.

What's the odds of this being another spin-off like Federation Force,Triforce Heroes and amiibo Festival?One that will have the fans up in arms.The 3DS has two,with one already out and another to still to come.amiibo festival came out around the same time as Tri-Force Heroes,maybe they have one planned for Wii U too.Plastic Mario in amiibo Land possibly?

Like others have said above,the question is not about what we prefer but how we play.In theory,this should make for a really interesting Splatfest.With the Barbarians charging in all aggressive and careless like myself without any snipers or more cautious players protecting from the back v's the sneaky Ninja's,who're not afraid to sit back and let you come to them before picking you off but having no one at the front,charging forward,getting the dirty work done.

@gatorboi352 Yes you can mute it,but those who are using it are going to have a clear advantage over those who are not,making the game a lot less fun for those who don't want to use it.I regularly play in quad squads with NL members,we've built up a pretty good understanding of how each other plays without ever using voice chat but now and again we'll come up against a team that obviously is communicating through other means and the match is over in less than a minute.That's not my idea of fun!So yes,it would take away from the experience.

I've still to pick this up but I'll definitely get it eventually.I enjoyed the demo enough to convince me I'll have fun with the full game.It wouldn't hurt to re-release it at a budget price and give it some promotion on the Eshop.

You know if they put some extra effort into some of these classics,they could add online leaderboards and multiplayer.It would certainly breath new life into them and justify making us buy them for a 2nd or 3rd time .SEGA done it with Street Fighter 2 on the Wii VC so it can be done.

@Moeblob It was more directed at Zool as he's in the UK.It's £39.99 for the standard version in the UK which is £10 cheaper than a full price release like Xenoblade or Smash or even Windaker HD.It's priced the same as titles like Yoshi and Kirby.Calling it a budget release was probably a bit of an exaggeration but it's still not full price release.We'll not have to pay the official price though,it'll appear on Amazon and elsewhere nearer release for around 20 to 25% cheaper.I'll be buying it digitally and I doubt I'll have to pay more than £30 for it.

OorWullie commented on Video: Official Nintendo Video Showcases amiib...:

@zool Well the fact that the title of the article says "Official Nintendo Video" is a big enough clue that it isn't another rumour.It obviously wasn't supposed to go live yet so it's been made private.Gamexplain have the video up still though.The amiibo extra is just a challenge mode similar to Splatoon's.I doubt that it will be rubbish like you say.It's just a little bonus for those who spent the extra money and bought the amiibo.Those who are not interested in amiibo are getting a remastered classic at a budget price.I have Splatoon but don't own any of the amiibo,I certainly don't feel like I'm missing out on much though.The extra modes they unlock are probably fun but short experiences,but not really nothing worth bothering about if you're not interested in collecting amiibo.

@MarinoKadame Splatoon 2 NX will have a Squid v Octoling mode I'm sure.Man that game's going to incredible haha

@Jamotello I wish the Wii U had themes.I want my Wara Wara Plaza and menu spattered with ink.

I do hope we get to play the ranked modes at nighttime eventually.It looks really great at night,would be a shame to limit it only to Splatfests.

Perfect,I thought we might have to wait until next week.I really couldn't be happier with the amount of content it has.With the uniqueness of each mode/map and the way the rotations work,the game always feels fresh and exciting to me every time I put it on.I played Tower Control on Piranha Pit for the first time yesterday and had some of the best fun I've had with the game since it came out.Considering I've already put well over 500 hours into it,that's saying something.Without doubt,one of the finest games Nintendo's ever made!

@mowerdude It's still the same game basically but it's based on the SNES Super Mario Allstars remake.You can see just from the screenshot at the top,there's quite a difference in the graphics.Plus there's the original Mario Bros included too and now with the added E-Reader levels available to all for the first time,it's definitely worth owning.It's actually the 3rd highest rated Mario game on Metacritic after the 2 Galaxies.

"a radical departure for the company - an entirely new concept which will differ greatly from current game hardware"

That's quite a statement.I don't think that could have said that about any other console since the Gameboy or NES.Virtua Boy and Wii in some ways I suppose.They certainly weren't what I'd call radical departures though.I'm not sure if I feel reassured by this or concerned haha.

There has to be a solution to making the old Wii Shop more accessible from the Wii U menu?There's hundreds of games there on our Wii U's already just waiting to be purchased but hidden behind the slow and clunky Wii mode.An app with a direct link to the old shop,and a Wii VC app on the Wii U menu that launches the game directly instead of going into Wii mode is surely manageable.

@Jamotello It's just something that was organised in the forums,it takes place on the 30th Jan,I forget what time.We had 1 a few weeks back and it was great.4 teams of 4,2 semi finals of best of 7 and then a 3rd place play off and final.There was a couple of players streaming it last time I'm sure.If you check the 'Multi-player thread" in the forums ,there's more info in there,

@Danrenfroe2016 Yep,the next map is the final map unfortunately.Ancho-V Games.it's called,by the looks of it is set in a game developers studio .

I'll guess that we'll probably have to wait until next week for the final map to land.Just in time for the NL Splatournament 2.Pity we didn't have a better way to stream the best of the action from it,we could have asked @Damo nicely to open up a live chat for it The last one was really great,controversy,comebacks the lot.

OorWullie commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Bayonetta ...:

@zool The sequel has sold more than the original did on 360,which was the best selling version.The 360 obviously had a far larger user base too,so it's not just Nintendo gamers that ignore games like this.Considering the sequel has has sold near 1 million to such a small user base ,I wouldn't say it's done too badly at all.Sales will probably spike too once the Smash DLC and the re-release comes out.

@invictus4000 You should try bookmarking a few of the recommended levels on that portal.I've come across across some really great levels on there.One maker I'd highly recommend is a guy called Layne.Well worth playing all his levels,there's not a bad one among them.

@CHET_SWINGLINE I've had the game since it launched so I'm not sure how it unlocks the new weapons to you when your just starting out but you'll gain more gear and weapons as your level increases and by checking the stores daily.Single player mode also unlocks some gear too.You're probably best starting with the Splattershot or the roller then take it from there.Find what subs and gear suit you and experiment with the weapons in Recon.There's no best weapon and gear really as it all depends on your play style.Good luck and enjoy

OorWullie commented on ​Mini Mario & Friends amiibo Challenge Launc...:

@faint I did forget,Jariw reminded me of them above.I've only got NES Remix 2 and I enjoyed it but it's still nothing new really,just old games presented in a different way.They never even cleaned up the graphics for it,just included them in their original form,flicker and all.I'm not one to complain about Nintendo normally,I'm a happily content Wii U owner but their Eshop output has really disappointed me.

@Danrenfroe2016 Yep,I know what you mean. Why they the new version has less than the previous is beyond me!Especially considering the price it sells for,it's £13.49 in the UK and I don't think it's ever been on sale.I loved Dr Mario on Wii too,easily my second most played game on it.I was pretty great at it too,my score was as high as 8500 at one point.Now with Dr Luigi I'm lucky if I even win a round.I only got it a few months ago so it can be pretty tough to find matches sometimes but when I do it's more often than not against some expert Japanese player who quits after beating me once or twice with ease.I kind of knew that would be the case before i bought it with the much smaller user base but disappointing none the less.

@ULTRA-64 @Jariw Agreed guys,I really expected a lot more from them this gen.They don't even need to be new titles per se,something like they did with Excite Bike would be great.How about the original Super Mario Kart with wide screen,bump in resolution and online,or some of their old sports games slightly remastered with added online.Or go even further,make 8/16 bit style official sequels to some of their old classics,like what Capcom done with Megaman.Stuff like that would make a lot of fans happy,might even bring quite a few back who've moved on from Nintendo.

OorWullie commented on ​Mini Mario & Friends amiibo Challenge Launc...:

One thing that's annoyed me about Nintendo this gen is how few smaller games they've brought to the Eshop themselves.On the Wii,we had unique and creative games like the Art Style series,Bonsai Barber,You,Me the Cubes,Rock and Roll Climber,MaBoshi Arcade and more,a few of those were great little games,Bonsai Barber especially.Also we had really good online games like Dr Mario and Excitebike.The Wii U though has hardly any and nothing that's actually "new",Dr Luigi , Wii Sports ,Art Academy ,a Pokemon game,PullBlox and Tipping Stars.Now we can add Tipping Stars 1.1 with amiibo support to that mediocre list.
