Quickman commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

@ikki5 The reason the Wii U is under 10 mil sales while being almost 3 years old is because of Nintendo's lack luster marketing.

The Wii U has a fantastic library of games, but people have to know about it before they can buy it.

In contrast, Sony spent $1billion advertising the PS4, which didn't really have a whole lot of games in its first year and it hits 20M in the blink of an eye, it's not a coincidence.

@ikki5 Sorry, but most of that reply doesn't even make any sense, and you also reply to a couple of my questions with questions that I've already answered.

Again the main problem is that 3rd parties dominate Playstation and Xbox, ie they have a monopoly, on a Nintendo platform they have to compete with Nintendo software (which they already stated they can't compete with). Nintendo would have to make less games to allow third parties more room. They did that in 2013 with the Wii U and we all know how that turned out.

Also from Nintendo's POV, why spend a lot of money bringing CoD back to the Wii U, (BLOPS II sold under 300,000 copies) when you can use that money to make something like Cpt. Toad (which sold over 600,000 copies).

@ikki5 Sorry but I've answered this question twice, I can't be any clearer.

Third party developers dominate Playstation and Xbox, Sony and MS rely on this, hence they invest in them, why would 3rd parties want to consider a Nintendo dominated platform just because it's up to spec?

@TheRealThanos True, the real problem for the Wii U was promotion. Nintendo need to up their advertising, it's not like there isn't great software on the system, people can't buy it if they don't know about it.

@C-Olimar Reading between the lines, it's not that they have no option to release an inferior version, it's that they don't want to spend the time getting the game to run properly. No doubt the game has been successful and there's a sequel in the works, so they will want to sweep this under the rug...

@ikki5 I've already answered this, 3rd party developers dominate Playstation and Xbox, "two's company three's a crowd", Nintendo could offer a juggernaut of a console with all the bells and whistles and still won't make any difference.

Nintendo have three options, Go their own way, Go third party or go out of business trying to compete with MS and Sony for 3rd party support.

@ikki5 It's not the hardware though, I'm amazed that people don't get this? Nintendo could release an absolute juggernaut of a console and the same thing will happen time and time again.

In basic terms, 3rd party developers dominate Playstation and Xbox, "two's company three's a crowd".

I never had any faith in this game anyway, since Namco decided to publish, the Wii U version basically went down the toilet.

This is why Nintendo owners don't buy third party, there's a simple solution to this nonsense, if you can't deliver, don't promise a release.

Quickman commented on Feature: The Best Pro Wrestling Games That the...:

VPW64 and VPW 2 are probably still the best wrestling games to date, huge rosters and tighter gameplay than the WWF games.

I also have a soft spot for Revenge, the attention to detail was incredible and captured the feel of a of WcW game perfectly.

Quickman commented on Nintendo Addresses Confusion Surrounding Wii U...:

@Blastoise-san Absolutely, it's a shame that some people on here are incapable of thinking outside Playstation and Microsoft.

Also it's good to see Nintendo pushing Rayman Legends, I think that a "Versus Bundle" (NSMBU + Rayman Legends) would have done extremely well just after launch, especially if Rayman Legends had stayed exclusive to Wii U.

Quickman commented on Review: Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop):

I always thought that the Tennis was the weakest game in the package, Golf, Bowling and even the boxing had a lot more about them IMO.

I'd have probably prefered the table tennis to this in all honesty.

Quickman commented on Video: This Is Why CoD: Ghosts Is Best on Wii U:

Also if you're using Wii remote in COD, it's a good idea to change "pick up weapon" from the A button to "inventory" (left on the d-pad).

Otherwise if you're aiming down the sights and lock the camera while standing near any weapons... it can be very problematic if you're in the middle of a gun fight.

Quickman commented on Talking Point: Regional Online Multiplayer Mis...:

The lag is probably due to a lot of people having terrible connections, I'm amazed at how many people try to play BLOPS II online and their connections are so bad that they have one red bar showing up..

Also regarding the PAL region, I have a friend in Australia and apparently their internet is pretty slow, they don't have great speeds for some reason.. (I wasn't really listening while he was moaning about it).

Quickman commented on Nintendo Download: 7th November (Europe):

@ThomasBW84 Deus EX is the best 3rd party game on Wii U right now IMO.

I was going to get Ghosts but i'm really not feeling it on Wii U, Treyarch have been very cagey regarding details and recent info on the game doesn't fill me with confidence. We shall see...

Quickman commented on Nintendo Download: 31st October (North America):

@JaxonH Capcom and Konami were two of my favourite companies like EVER. just feels like something's been lost along the way, MH is awesome but you could name multiple awesome Capcom games back then, same with Konami really..

It makes you realise how well Nintendo have done over the years to protect their franchises..

Quickman commented on Nintendo Download: 31st October (North America):

@JaxonH I didn't say that they weren't still relevant, they just don't make as many awesome games anymore, compare now to back in the day and there's no comparison really.

The fact that Capcom are in big trouble, kinda tells you all you need to know.

Quickman commented on Alien Haters Rejoice, You'll Be Able To Blast ...:

@Unit_DTH It's an awesome game, the gamepad features are incredible, I very impressed, especially as the game came from Square-Enix.

I actually enjoyed BLOPS II on Wii U as well, I'm not big on DLC but I probably would have bought some maps if available, I didn't like activision's stance of sticking two fingers up at the people who bought the game because of low sales. "No DLC but to make up for it here's a double XP weekend..." Wow, thanks, lads!

I guess there's the dedicated servers and no quickscoping to look forward to in Ghosts, I just hope that it's not completely gimped as it does actually look quite good.

I'm getting a Skippy (The Bush Kangaroo) vibe from this one..

Pikachu : "....."
Player 1: "What's that Pikachu?"
Pikachu : "Piiiiiiikaaaaa"
Player 1: "Burt's trapped down a mine shaft?"
Pikachu : "Chooo!"
Player 1 : 20 miles, east?!
