Razzle commented on Monochroma For Wii U Scrapped Due To Technical...:

I supported a game called Chosmochoria, and although the game is finished the developer had to give up on the WiiU version due to technical issues. It is a big gamble with kickstarted these days, I have supported 4 games and am yet to recieve a single one on WiiU. Still waiting on Paradise Lost which is getting pushed further and further back, wouldn't be suprised if it gets cancelled as well.



Razzle commented on Indie Developers Praise Nintendo's Policies an...:

I love the Indi games. Recent purchases include Teslagrad, The Swapper and Guacamelee. All polished and excellent platformers, all different in their own unique way. They have breathed much needed life into the WiiU and that is to be applauded.



Razzle commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

We have been playing this a fair bit but holy moly, the highest character we have levelled up is Link and he's on level 52. Most of my characters are level 35ish. This makes it really difficult, we are still attempting to get the Skuktullas. I will say though, you cannot complain about the amount of content, this game is enormous!!



Razzle commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

Regarding the eShop male/female statistic. My wife is a regular gamer, but mostly enjoys just playing co-op, and we usually just log in under my account to play. So whenever there is a female playing on my WiiU the system will likely just register it as me.

However, I do know she has never browsed the eShop and shows very little interest in Indi games. She only really like the usual Nintendo staples, and she loves the 3DS (again, the account is in my name). I would suggest many women are playing Nintendo products under a male account system in a shared household.

A tiny and completely unrepresentative sample I know, but that's my 2 cents.



Razzle commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Curve Digital:

From Curve so far I've bought only Lone Survivor, I was very impressed and intend to pick up Stealth Inc, The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone. The Indi releases have been a saving grace on the WiiU.



Razzle commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok 2:

I liked this game up until the later stages. They became mazes of frustration and it felt like they gave up on designing open levels and just made corridors instead. The earlier levels though.... Awesome. Loved getting head shots with the bow and seeing the enemies tumble while running.



Razzle commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

I'll tell you what 'breaks the magic'. Getting hyped up about Watchdogs for a year and then being told it's 'delayed' for WiiU. Then trying to avoid reviews and spoilers that might dampen my enthusiasm, but eventually I get to the point where I don't care if I ever play it or not. Oh yes, the magic is broken.



Razzle commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I have bought AC3, AC Black Flag, Just Dance 2014, Rayman Legends and ZombiU. I really enjoyed all of them, ZombiU being an absolute stand-out (I have never felt so much dread in a game). Ubisoft keep delivering late games though, at higher prices than other platforms. In these conditions they will always post poor results.



Razzle commented on Wii U Owners Finally Get The Nuketown 2025 Map...:

Dusty copy? No sir, my copy of Black Ops gets a fairly regular thrashing, it is still the best online shooter for WiiU by a long shot. There is still a decent amount of people playing, and the Nuketown map is actually pretty fun. It's a small map and very hectic!



Razzle commented on Upcoming Child of Light Patch to Rename Diffic...:

Yeh controlling the glowbug is ok in single player (touch screen or right stick) but when playing co-op it is done with a Wiimote d-pad only. There is no option for the WiiU Pro Controller or for motion controls with Wiimote. No big deal but it would have been nice.



Razzle commented on Upcoming Child of Light Patch to Rename Diffic...:

Playing this through on 'normal' with my other and we're having fun. The story and narrative is a bit wishy washy but it's cool. I wish they included motion control with the Wiimote for the glowbug, using the d-pad is ugly.



Razzle commented on Cosmochoria Confirmed for Wii U Release:

Thank you fellow WiiU owners! I pledged on this game when it was at 10K and I wasn't sure it make the WiiU goal. Am very happy it did, I think it will be a great game.



Razzle commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Cult County, I backed it. Depressing. I also backed 'Paradise Lost' which looks superb and it only had to hit $75000. Unfortunately for Renegade Kid, I don't think a lot of people put their money down until a project is close to making it - better to have a small target to get the project up and running, then hit stretch goals. Good on them for going big, but ultimately it has backfired.



Razzle commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:

I posted a picture from the credits of Donkey Kong TF, with the words 'Great game, loved it!' and got a warning about posting spoilers....sigh.

Other than this, I think it's a funny community which Nintendo is obviously piling resources into to keep it safe for all ages. I am fine with this, and I think parents would greatly appreciate it.



Razzle commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

Off TV play is essential for my household. The wife is always watching something on TV, it allows me to stick headphones in and still enjoy my WiiU. I've also noticed the internet browser is super fast, much faster than my iPad or phone, so I use this all the time. The WiiU Gamepad is an older gamers absolute best friend, I feel like it was made for older gamers with families who need to fit gaming in around other competing interests.



Razzle commented on Feature: Lifting the Curtain on Game Ratings a...:

Typical Australian approach - bog everyone down in red tape so a few public servants with can justify their existence. Wrap the kids in cotton wool so much they suffocate! This is a terrible approach and makes me feel for Indie developers especially. Plus, I am an Australian gamer and I really want to play these games!
