RedDevilAde commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

Never saw what people raved about in this. Was wowed by the graphics when it came out, but after I played it I just found it tedious and not a patch on Super Mario World. Was always underwhelmed by it. Rare didn't earn a special place in my heart until I played Goldeneye and Banjo Kazooie. I'd rate it 5 or 6 myself.



RedDevilAde commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

@Goginho that's what I was hoping too, given that people have been running GC games on the Wiii U via the Wii's home-brew channel it shows that the machine is more than capable of running the games. It just sucks that Nintendo seems unwilling (or unable) to do the work to allow us to run them. :(



RedDevilAde commented on Feature: What We Want to See in SNES Remix:

Bart's Nightmare would be a good one for the remix treatment, the individual bits of the games were good but the whole thing never tied together well. Breaking it up into mini games would make it play a lot nicer



RedDevilAde commented on Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Fr...:

The whole thing has been a massive disappointment. Fewer systems than the Wii, less powerful systems than the Wii and a real shoddy selection of games thus far. I can't see anything other than a surprise release of GCN games recovering it at this point (which is what everyone expected in the first place). The VC was a big selling point of the Wii, on the Wii U it's an irrelevance as they've screwed it up so badly.



RedDevilAde commented on Oliver Twins Admit Dizzy Returns Kickstarter H...:

Shame, it looks like Elite Dangerous will fall short as well (asking for an eye watering 1.25 million GBP). I think the main issue with these things is there is no profit sharing on Kickstarter (due to laws on investment I believe). Without that I'd never want to chuck in more than pocket change and I don't think it's realistic to expect people to put in a large sum of money to support the project without getting it back if the project is commercially successful (the amount Elite has attracted to date has really surprised me though).



RedDevilAde commented on Molyneux: "I Struggle To See Anything Amazing ...:

@Aviator I haven't criticised him, I've just said Miyamoto is clearly much more of a success than him which means he's not in the best position to criticise his vision. You don't have to be an expert to see Miyamoto has a better track record than Molyneux at taking gaming forward. Anyone can see that.

From my own experience I saw nothing great in the following before they were released: Mario Kart, Mario 64, the iPhone, the iPad. In hindsight I wasn't qualified to judge them. If you're not as visionary as the person who came up with the idea you can judge it's potential as well.



RedDevilAde commented on Molyneux: "I Struggle To See Anything Amazing ...:

Shigeru Miyamoto has been much more prolific than Molyneux at producing games that are fun and have stood the test of time (when was the last time I played Populous, back in the early 90s, compared to Donkey Kong - this year). I don't think he's really qualified to criticise if Nintendo have a good vision or not given the massive difference in their success compared to his (it's like Hanson criticizing Madonna's music).

I doubt anyone is only time will tell if Nintendo's strategy will work. I won't write it off at this stage.



RedDevilAde commented on Wii U User Accounts and Nintendo Network ID De...:

Doesn't seem to answer the main question, if we lose/break our Wii can we just buy a new system, register our Nintendo ID and get our purchases back? That scenario seems to have been avoided and it's the main reason not to like system tied purchases.
