OorWullie commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

It looks fantastic but that's no surprise really,it was always going to be.I'm with the others though in hoping that the orb collecting has been scrapped,I found it distracting from what was otherwise a solid racer.Maybe the difficulty could be reduced just a little too haha.There was no margin for error at all in the original.



OorWullie commented on Nintendo 64x64: Buck Bumble:

I used to read all the 64 mags back in the day,spend ages in stores looking at all the games and owned far more than I should have been able to afford but this 1 must have completely passed me by.I've never heard of it nor seen that box before in my life and I have no idea how or why :o



OorWullie commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

@gage_wolf Look what you've gone and done! ;)

By giving this chancer coverage like this,you're only adding to the problem NL.The guy does not deserve to make 1 penny off of this but just like the guy behind The Letter,with all this free promotion he clearly will.Now that will just encourage other chancers to try the same and before we know it,it's a race to the bottom to see who can make the worst game.That might sound far fetched but with RCMADIAX' earlier response,it's clearly his intention!



OorWullie commented on Video: Which 8-bit Version Of Ghostbusters Are...:

I remember I used to rent this and Psycho Fox from the video shop.Great game at the time.Watching the video brought back a lot of memories ,like going into Dixons every single day after school to play the demo unit or stare at the back of game boxes till closing time.haha.There used to be a shop in my town called the SEGA swap shop that I used to go to after Dixons or the arcade.Fantastic little place with every wall packed with games none of the main stores had..He always had all the latest Japanese games and would let you trade in your old games for a few quid or even borrow you for a couple of nights.He was always open till late too.Spent a lot of my early teen years in there haha.Great times ;)



OorWullie commented on SPIKEY WALLS is Flapping Its Way Onto the eSho...:

@RCMADIAX I don't see any humour man.I just see an awful looking clone of an awful game with some of the worst headache inducing graphics I have ever seen,all formats included.And to be releasing this on a Nintendo console in your own name (for a laugh?) is embarrassing in my opinion!



OorWullie commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

I do not understand your complaint about the "lack of buttons"?.How was it lacking exactly? Also as Kirk above me has said,the Saturn pad did not come first,it followed soon after and it was well known and reported at the time it was SEGA response to the N64 pad.



OorWullie commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

A fantastic controller for an iconic console.I can't understand those who are saying it was uncomfortable,it was anything but.It was the perfect controller to introduce us to 3D gaming and set the standard for 3D controls right from the off.I had 4 of them too and not 1 of them broke on me and my N64 saw far more multiplayer than any other console before or since.This was Nintendo at their peak when it came to the quality of their games and they've rarely been as good since and this unique controller was the perfect way to play these masterpieces!



OorWullie commented on Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival Is Drag...:

It's hard to stay angry at Capcom for not bringing RE Revelations and REREmake to their spiritual homes when they follow it up with news like this.They've given the fans what we've been asking for,a 13 year old 2 button handheld port of a 20 year old 6 button arcade game to play on the big screen.

Love you Capcom x



OorWullie commented on Project: Nintendo 64x64:

Hope to see Blast Corps reviewed! Loved that game but I've never played it since I moved onto the Dreamcast back in the day.It will likely never get a sequel unfortunately or even see a re release unless it was on xbox.It doesn't seem to be playable on any emulator either so it looks like this unique classic is destined to be forgotten,except from those who played it.It's a shame,it would make for the perfect Eshop game too!



OorWullie commented on Review: Jett Tailfin (Wii U eShop):

@everyone I might be mistaken but I'm sure the price must be a typo? If the UK price is only £1.89 then I can't see it costing $34.95 in the US ;)

Edit - I am mistaken, I thought it said GBP not GB.So that is the price after all! :o



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



OorWullie commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

@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.



OorWullie commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

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 ;)



OorWullie commented on Super Smash Bros. Seizes Gamescom Most Wanted ...:

@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.



OorWullie commented on Night Trap ReVamped Developer May Flip-Flop on...:

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.



OorWullie commented on Don't Touch Anything Red Close to Release, Hel...:

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!



OorWullie commented on Goodbye Galaxy Games Reveals First Teaser Imag...:

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.
