Ootfan98 commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

I'm sure it will sell well on the PS4. Because If it doesn't, that would Mean that PS4 owners don't support 3rd Party Games. As they keep saying it's only Nintendo owners that don't support 3rd Party.
What, it's a bad port? No excuse, you should support 3rd Party

Ootfan98 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

IMO, there is an element of Chicken & Egg here. If games are good, People will buy them.
I currently have 15 full price 3rd Party games, the same amount as 1st Party.
But I can see why people would not buy some 3rd Party games, a few examples below

FIFA 13. Basically FIFA 11 released at full price, while over systems get a new Game. It does take a lot to figure out why it sold crap.
Mass Effect 3, sold at £59.99 whilst other systems get the entire trilogy a tenner cheaper.
Zombi U, a good exclusive (I got at Launch). This was given a lot of unfair p#ss poor reviews. A lot of western review sites were expecting COD with Zombies, and slated it.
Rayman Legends. A good game, but p#ssed off the fan base by delaying release, probably a bung from MS
AC games are buggy ports.

A few examples of 3rd Party games done right:
Need for Speed Most Wanted (although price was high), Lego City Undercover, Bayonetta.

I think the Wii U is fantastic gaming hub. I have (mostly all digital) over 240 games (inc eShop and Wii/Wii U VC), most accessible from my Game Pad in most rooms of the house.

Ootfan98 commented on Review: 3D Streets of Rage 2 (3DS eShop):

After Gunstar Heroes and Sonic 2, that will be 8 Megadrive and 8 Arcades. I wonder what M2 are thinking for the next wave?
I am hoping Power Drift, Super Monaco GP Arcade, Golden Axe, will be next, or maybe start the AM2/AM3 Arcades

Ootfan98 commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

I enjoyed this game, although I wasn't very good at it.
I think the reason in didn't do well at launch is partially fault of Western Reviewers giving lower score, because they reviewed it as a FPS game, when it should have been reviewed as a survival horror game.

When the 3DS version is £39.99 and the VC is only £8.99, it still gets a 10/10 IMO.
I don't know of any other budget eShop game that is as engaging. Easily 20 hours to an average gamer (including collectables). The Dungeons / puzzles are still fantastic, regardless of the graphics or framerate.

If your going to play this now for the 1st time, I don't think you'll ever appreciate how good this game was for its time. I personally still think it's fantastic, but I would advise playing the 3DS version if it's you first time, unless you appreciate gaming history

As soon as I saw this article, first thing I thought was 'I bet there's some anti Nintendo troll with a name beginning with the letter Q saying Nintendo fans don't buy any non Nintendo games'
Oh look, post number 6.
He or she must be loving this week

Ootfan98 commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

@gcunit They did say that for Wii U, at E3 would only show games releasing this year. That sort of is, maybe, I suppose, trying to manage expectation (I'm not saying it is right).
I was disappointed at no VC update and new Club Nintendo replacement news.
Someone else has already said this, but I think next year will be a Zelda Year with the 30th anniversary.

Ootfan98 commented on Video: The Nintendo Life Reaction to Nintendo'...:

Just as a reminder, Nintendo did say that for Wii U, E3 would only focus on games releasing in 2015.
If anyone @nintendolife is in contact with Nintendo, you should tell them that if they have got games releasing for 2016, they should create another Nintendo direct abit sharpish, as all this negative feedback is not going to help the momentum Splatoon has created (although there are some you will never please)
I'm hoping Starfox 0 will add a Co-op mode, 1 person flies, 1 person shoots (like a Gunstar in Last Starfighter). The Gamepad could be the shooter (like the 3DS built in game), with a pro controller flying

Ootfan98 commented on Sony Is Assisting With The Creation Of Shenmue...:

If the game is only just starting, it should be at least another 3 years before release. If they release the 1st 2 episodes to build anticipation, I would by a PS4, but for people who did not play them, releasing them might be a bad idea, so these were very early open world games (I would say not the open world we know in games today).

Ootfan98 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I remember seeing an article on Nintendolife that stated Nintendo would only be showing games at E3 that release in 2015. This is why they said no Wii Zelda at E3. This would also explain why there is no big surprises. There are 5 big games (6 if you include Fatal Frame)
Perhaps this is bad idea from Ninty not showing intentions for 2016, but that was communicated.
Would have been good to get more info on the Club Nintendo replacement or VC updates

Ootfan98 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

There could still be a Metroid or a F-Zero next year. Nintendo did say they would only show games that are releasing in 2015. There are still 5 big games for Wii U this year.
Maybe they will run another direct to show 2016 after they see media & public reaction to this Direct. Maybe there will be more through the week.
I have to say I was disappointed, especially as there was no news on VC or the new Club Ninty. Just trying to stay positive

Ootfan98 commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for Nintendo at ...:

I agree with what @Cyberbotv2 says about Shenmue. I thinks it's shocking behaviour from Sony to use Shenmue to promote their brand but are not even funding it. Although I will buy a PS4 just to spend weeks collecting toys from egg machines. Hope there's also an updated Arcade with the likes of Virtua Fighter, Daytona, Sega Rally etc.

On topic, hoping Ninty release cross system VC, and new F Zero

Ootfan98 commented on Splatoon Ranked Battle Mode and First Free DLC...:

@Yorumi I get your points, I personally don't think it's a big deal for Splatoon. I think saying buying Splatoon is Blind Faith, because you don't know what the free DLC is, is over dramatisation some what.
I also don't think this will be a trend going forward for games like Mario.
Your spot on about reviews, as we have already seen Splatoon getting less than deserving scores.
