RantingThespian commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

I'm having the same problem. It just goes to a black screen, and then returns to the Wii U menu. No error message or anything.

This is very troubling since I was really looking forward to the Metroid Prime Trilogy, and there is no way that will fit on my Wii U. I hope Nintendo can fix this issue, pronto.

These are all ones that I know of (excluding the Wii remote and nunchuck support)

  • The graphics for 1 and 2 are improved (upgraded texures, bloom lighting, fixed glitches, improved environmental effects, 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • The award system for 3 is incorporated into 1 and 2
  • Faster loading times
  • Echoes's difficulty is slightly lowered
  • Fully incorporated 4-person-local-multiplayer based off the version from Echoes
  • Ability to unlock the Metroid Fusion suit (that was originaly only unlockable by linking Fusion on the GBA and Prime on GC)
  • New unified start menu


RantingThespian commented on EA Cancelled Wii U SimCity Title Before The Fo...:


Now, don't get me wrong, I love the SimCity franchise. I just hate what EA Has done with it. The current PC version is terrible, and obviously this was going to be a port of that monstrosity.

I wish Will Wright would come back and save his creation. I have so many fond memories of SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4.

Nintendo has been approached multiple times for movies based on their IPs (Mario, Zelda, and especially Metroid). But, Nintendo has been so weary since the flop of the SMB Movie that nothing has ever been greenlit. I think the one that was the closest to actually being made was a Metroid movie in the early 2000s.

However, with Bowser appearing in Wreck It Ralph, maybe Nintendo will become a bit more willing to take a chance and do another movie based on their IPs.

I'd really love to see a "LOTR-style" Zelda film or an "Alien-style" Metroid film.
