Ootfan98 commented on Talking Point: What We Expect In Nintendo Dire...:

Dreamcast, Saturn, Mega CD, Sega's Arcade back catalogue, Amiga, Gamecube VC, and downloadable Wii games that can be played from Wii U menu.
Also, please can we have unified eshop accounts between 3DS and Wii U (VC Games)



Ootfan98 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):

Is this a joke?

Who at Nintendo is in charge of selecting VC games for release?
I know there are Issues with publishing rights and emulator issues but for fek sake Nintendo

Surely you can do better than this ? (no Airplane pun intended)



Ootfan98 commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for January:

@ikki5 ok fair point, the Cradle is a good gift, ok, maybe I am being harch, but I would prefer VC games to buy with points, I am constantly having point expire because there is nothing to choose. Yes, occasionally there are some good gifts, but not enough in my opinion



Ootfan98 commented on First Impressions: 3D After Burner II:

@Mommar These games were released on Saturn as part of Sega Ages collection, sold separately in Japan, and only 3 available as a compilation in the west (Afterburner 2, Outrun, Space Harrier). I think the Saturn version of Outrun is the only Home Console version that is arcade perfect



Ootfan98 commented on First Impressions: 3D After Burner II:

I really hope this makes it West.

The conversion looks fantastic, even the Super Hang On bike and Outrun car on the runways made it

I also hope this is swiftly followed with Power Drift and Outrun



Ootfan98 commented on Nintendo Reiterates Confidence That the Wii U ...:

I am not an expert, but I personally think this is a Marketing / Commercial Issue. There is nothing wrong with the product. Both 3DS and Wii U are fantastic games consoles.
The Marketing / Commercial departments should have learned from 3DS that they need to differentiate from their existing successful product. But no, they decided to employ the same strategy with Wii U. I know the 3DS is doing well now, but will the Wii U see the same turn around in fortune? Only time will tell.

With regards to 3rd Party, I have always thought that 3rd Party will never compete with the standard of 1st party quality (I know I will get loads of comments saying I'm talkin b****cks, just remember opinions are like ar***oles, everyone has one).
I am fed up with lazy, sub standard quality ports. Companies like EA should be prosecuted for selling FIFA at £50 that is a 2 year old game



Ootfan98 commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Arrives on Wii U and 3DS V...:

I was hoping that accounts between Wii U and 3DS would be unified when this gets released, as good a game this is, I will only get the Wii U Version at discounted price from Wii VC. I am not paying for it on the 3DS, it should be transferable



Ootfan98 commented on Feature: 10 Sega Titles We'd Like To See Rebor...:

Powerdrift, Gunstar Heroes, would be fantastic, as would Super Monaco GP, I remember the arcade version having a 3D Screen (or something that gave the illusion of 3D)

Daytona, Outrun, Sega Rally would also be fantastic. or Virtua Cop with stylus shooting



Ootfan98 commented on Super Mario 3D World Struggles Against PS4 Tit...:

Most of the top ten are multiplatform, plus on a launch weekend, and does not take into account digital sales SM3DW.
The previous record for Console Sales at launch was held by PSP, so this does not guarantee future success



Ootfan98 commented on SEGA Working on Second Round of 3D Classics:

Agree with everyone who has said Outrun, Power Drift, Afterburner

Would also like to see the Virtua series, along with Daytona / Sega Rally (original arcade)

Atari 3D Classics would also be good. Original Star Wars, Stun Runner, Hard Drivin

Come on Sega, give us Saturn & Dreamcast for Wii U VC



Ootfan98 commented on Nintendo Download: 17th October (Europe):

I don't remember City Connection, but I do remember Car Vup on the Amiga. That was a cool game. It looks to be a similar game in terms of objective. I doubt it plays the same though



Ootfan98 commented on New Wii U System Update Goes Live Across Europ...:

Has anyone tried using the Wii-mote and Game Pad as a mini TV in a different room / floor to the actual Wii U System ?
I assume the Wii-mote still has to communicate with the Wii U System. I am sure the range of the Wii-mote is not as far as the game pad
