PorllM commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):

This is so weird. I woke up at 4am Friday night/Saturday morning with the words Nobunaga's Ambition in my head. I knew I'd heard it at some point in my life but whether it was a film, book, game, or something completely else I had no idea. I ended up Googling it because I couldn't sleep, found out it was a game. Now it's on the download update. I think I'm psychic. lol

PorllM commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

Weird how whenever you go on Miiverse it seems like every other post is by a female? Is that the result of men using female Miis or women just use Miiverse more? Either that or this study is completely false...

@ModestFan93 What do you mean ? Nothing in any of my posts suggests I thought it wouldn't, I was just disappointed there wasn't full online co-op. I figured there would probably be another online mode anyway which is awesome. And no I only commented on the article, then responded to someone who attacked me for having a different opinion to him, so I haven't had chance to read any of the other comments.

@Einherjar "I doesnt offer exactly what everything else does, so i wont buy it"

I never said anything close to that, it doesn't offer what I want so I possibly won't buy it day one. As a die hard Zelda fan I possibly will end up getting it day one anyway but I reserve the right to not if I'm not 100% sure it's worth full price. Excuse me for having my own tastes.

I'm still hugely excited for the game but I'm just disappointed there's no online co op, stop jumping on people when you disagree with what they say, you think it doesn't need online co op, great, enjoy then!

@Einherjar Lmao are you serious? Nintendo isn't popular in the UK there are only maybe 10 players of Nintendo in my whole city, the local game stores don't even have Nintendo sections, so my chances of finding someone to play this with locally is almost absolute zero, not that my friends are any part of this discussion or any of your business!

Also you're forgetting this game already has online play so your server cost argument isn't relevant. "Most people won't use it more than once or twice" is a ridiculous generalization that isn't even close to true.

I won't post an opinion on this site again since people aren't capable of disagreeing without being insulting and dismissive.

This is pretty pathetic. I only have a few friends that would ever play Nintendo and none of them would be interested in this. I'm still interested in the game as a huge Zelda fan, for fan service reasons only, but the value of it just shrank hugely to me. Not interested in day one any more, I'll get it when it's cheap. Hopefully an online vs mode where you capture each other's bases and command troops against each other could still make it worthwhile? Co op would be so much better though, still.

PorllM commented on Interview: Meet Naked War, The Wii Advance War...:

Sounds like a really good idea for a game and the WiiConnect24 stuff would have been great too. Honestly I think it could be even better now with the Gamepad flashing up notifications when someone makes a move. It could still play the same, using the Wiimote, but could have touch controls on the gamepad too for those who wanted it.

I can't shake the feeling they did this interview in the hope of getting an apology/free devkit from Nintendo though, especially with the comment at the end. I applied to be a Nintendo developer with no experience whatsoever and was accepted within a few weeks and now have the ability to purchase a Wii U devkit at an extremely reasonable price. For accomplished, experienced devs like these guys, there is really no excuse not to fill in a simple application form and get things moving. "Chasing" would be no part of it.

PorllM commented on Nintendo Supported Our Vision The Most, Says D...:

@Xiao_Pai Yeah but that quote about boundaries was in regards to the content of the game and violence, nudity and swearing etc.

The part about Nintendo costumes is different since it's Nintendo's own IPs, they might be happy to have a violent game exclusively on their console but I doubt they'd be quite as fond of seeing Mario and Peach slicing people in half and stuff haha.

PorllM commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (Europe):

Good week for sure. Already have the normal version of Guacamelee on PS3 so I'll give that a miss but it's a really fun game, highly recommend it to someone who hasn't played it already, especially if you like Mario and Rayman and stuff like that. It's a really surprisingly well done 2D platformer with great combat and puzzles.

I'll probably give Armillo a go at that price.

PorllM commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (Europe):

Highly, HIGHLY recommend Toki Tori 2+. Me and my ex girlfriend 100%'d it last year sometime, we paid £12 for it and were very satisfied, and she's not even a gamer. It's one of the best puzzle games in recent years and doesn't explain anything to you, instead letting you explore and experiment, learning about the game world in your own time. For £2.50 it's an absolute steal!

PorllM commented on PDP Confirms the GameCube-Inspired Wired Fight...:

Button placement, shape, design, this has nothing.in common whatsoever with a gamecube controller, where did that comparison even come from? This has however got me drooling over the thought of an official nintendo white wireless pro controller in the shape of a gamecube controller, would be the ideal way to play smash bros

PorllM commented on Nintendo Creating a New Console for Emerging M...:

@Dark-Link73 I understand what you mean but I think the rationale behind it is that "middle class" in emerging markets such as Brazil and India would be much lower than it is in NA, Europe, Japan etc. Whether that's true or not is a different matter but I thibk that's what they're thinking.

PorllM commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

I really can't believe all the people saying they don't understand this. PSN has done this for ages and it's one of the most popular and convenient features of the store.

I preordered GTA V on the store, and when I got home from work it was there fully downloaded! If I couldn't preorder it, I would have had to purchase it when I got home and then wouldn't have been able to play it until the next day at earliest.

From Nintendo's point of view, if someone thinks "oh that game looks good, I might buy it" then checks the eShop and realises it isn't out yet, they then have to wait. A high percentage of these times, people would just forget and never end up getting it. In this case you can preorder it anyway and it will automatically download, so it should increase sales for them quite a bit.

It makes perfect sense and is a basic feature that should have been there from the start, all digital marketplaces need it.

@allav866 I definitely agree with this though

PorllM commented on Video: What Could Xenoblade Chronicles Look Li...:

@yuwarite well if it's in the rules that they can't use piracy then this video obviously wasn't obtained through piracy? Anyone can upscale a video. And even if it was, it's their own site they can break the rules if they want.

I won't get banned from the site because I haven't discussed anything of that nature outside of replying to you.

PorllM commented on Little Inferno Has Sold A Million But Gamers D...:

@BossBattles What politicians and scientists have I been listening to then seeing as you know so much about how I've been brainwashed?

Personally, if I believe humanity's selfish exploits have a negative effect on the planet, including animals, plantlife, and the atmosphere, I'm allowed to do so.
The planet is fragile and we are not doing a good job of looking after it. Anyone who denies that is blind. To say I "probably don't actually research anything" because of that is a low, personal insult and I suggest you don't speak to people like that in person.

PorllM commented on Airtight Games Feels That Murdered: Soul Suspe...:

@CaviarMeths Not the best example as Rayman was originally built for the Wii U.

This standpoint is so unfair though. What he should be saying is the only good Wii U games that use the gamepad in some way are built ground up for the console. DKC:TF doesn't use the gamepad in anyway and could run fine on other consoles! The entire point of the pro controller is so devs can make normal PS/XB type games for it too.

PorllM commented on The Nintendo Phone Almost Happened A Decade Ago:

@vattodev Every sign seems to be pointing towards Nintendo's move into phones being announced very soon. A rumour may turn out to be false in the future, but if it's spoken on a lot and has evidence to support it, it is a reliable rumour for now. Plus Iwata has made countless statements that have turned out to not be true shortly later, and that quote was made ages ago.

PorllM commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Shin'en Multi...:

@rjejr What a response. Most demo releases have a barely recognizable result on sales and many have a negative one.

Also you're correct about Unity but that's completely irrelevant to games made specifically for Nintendo consoles such as these.
We're not doing the 'similar sounding word' thing here. Please stop — TBD

PorllM commented on The Girl and the Robot is Officially Coming to...:

The video clearly states this is an early build and not representative of the final quality, and the game is estimated to be released over a year from now, yet people still complain that it's ugly.

My mind boggles.

PorllM commented on Feature: A Guide to the Best Nintendo Gifts Fo...:

All of these bundles are incredible and I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone who isn't sure. As a 3DS Xl and Wii U owner, however, I was hoping this list would contain stuff outside of consoles like cool Nintendo merchandise, keyrings, statues and other baddonkey gifts. I know you can get Zelda piece of heart soap on Etsy which is awesome.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

PorllM commented on The Girl and the Robot Adds Wii U Stretch Goal...:

It's only $25 CAD which is £14.65 for the Wii U version reward tier. Consider it a preorder as I imagine it would cost about that much on release anyway.

@Usagi-san It's 25,000 not 250,000. Easily within reach within 5 days if people start taking the plunge instead of waiting for it to get close.

Also guys this is in a similar situation being funded and very close to a Wii U goal but with a lot more time, therefore a better chance. It's also only a £7 pledge necessary to get a Wii U if it reaches the goal. It is a very different game though so take a look and see if you're interested:

PorllM commented on EA Germany Survey Fails To Acknowledge The Wii U:

@edhe You're exactly right. The ones they released at launch are not visible in any game stores and are horrendously overpriced on the eShop. (I'm talking about NFS with the eShop, I don't even think the other two are on there!)

1% of their games were sold on Wii U because that's the percentage of Wii U games they shipped.

PorllM commented on EA Germany Survey Fails To Acknowledge The Wii U:

It's as simple as this. EA released a few games for Wii U to test the waters. Mass Effect 3 was late, lacking dlc, buggy and they didn't release 1&2. Fifa 13 was also late and was actually Fifa 12, and still missing features even by that standard. Need for Speed was great but ridiculously overpriced and not available in ANY retailers that I've seen. It was also late and lacking dlc. They then decided that the Wii U is not worth supporting due to their inability to sell these games.

On top of this EA has been voted the worst company in America 2 years in a row due to a ton of bugs, broken releases and complete rip offs over the last few years. Despite Battlefield being a pretty great game, in my opinion they haven't released an excellent must have since the first Dead Space.

This is no loss whatsoever for Nintendo gamers. Nintendo and a small amount of dedicated developers such as Shin'en are showing us what the Wii U can do and making incredible games that actually run like a dream. When/if the Wii U starts selling EA will be back, but I still won't buy any of their games so I couldn't care less. If they decide to test the waters and see how well they can sell on the console by actually releasing well tested games that are on par with what the Wii U is actually capable of, I might consider it. But they aren't going to do that so screw them!

PorllM commented on These Three New Kickstarter Projects Are Tryin...:

I also asked the creator of Explodimals if he'd consider the Wii U and got this response so it really does seem to work:

Hi there,

Wii U is certainly something I'd considered, but I have no idea how easy it is to get a game approved by Nintendo. I didn't want to promise backers a Wii U version and then have to let them down in the case that Nintendo wouldn't allow me to release the game.

However, I've had a quick look at Nintendo's developer site and noticed they have an HTML5 development environment, and seeing as the plan was to develop in HTML 5 anyway I guess it wouldn't hurt to add Wii U to the list of target platforms. I'll update the page later today to include Wii U!

Thanks,
Chris

EDIT: he did it too! : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/moonkeh/explodimals?ref=city

I really think regular updates on kickstarter such as this article with updates on changed stretch goals etc would really bring traffic to these projects and increase the Wii U library.

PorllM commented on These Three New Kickstarter Projects Are Tryin...:

I actually emailed the project leader of Lobodestroyo asking why the Wii U stretch goal was so high and he replied to me that I had a good point and that he would look into it. The new much lower stretch goal was announced the following morning so I'd like to think I had something to do with it.

Even if I didn't, I highly recommend anyone interested in supporting the Wii U browse kickstarter and ask projects that aren't coming to the Wii U why they aren't! If enough people ask they will have to consider it, and of course if you see a game coming to Wii U that you would buy, pledge!

PorllM commented on Nintendo Download: 14th November (Europe):

@element187 I didn't blame publishers at all? I was talking about the ridiculous overcharge that Splinter Cell is digitally compared to the physical version, not the difference in price between countries. If Ubi can sell ZombiU for £15.99 they can sell Splinter Cell for a reasonable price.
