Ricube commented on New Instalment In The Popular Fatal Frame Fran...:

I really loved Fatal Frame IV on Wii! This is maybe not going to sell a lot in western territories but it woul make a lot of fans happy. This should get a massive advertising because you hardly see scary games like those today...



Ricube commented on Guacamelee! Developer Stirring Up A New Title,...:

Even this trailer reminds me of Metroid. I thought, playing the first metroid games, that Samus was actually missing an arm... In Guacamelee there are a lot of Nintendo references and these guy's sure love the Metroid games they get inspiration from. So it's about time to publish games on Nintendo consoles! Even their logo has a Wiimote in it... ;-)



Ricube commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

I was thinking that this may be a game, in this generation, on that Nintendo could bring DLC's for new caracters and/or stages. We still don't know if there is a stage builder, right? And we now know the special mode of the 3ds version, but not the one on wiiu...



Ricube commented on EA Boss Peter Moore Apologises For Frostbite's...:

Arrogance often comes from envy and ignorance. How much would they love to actually see the frostbite logo in a Zelda or Mario game? And the 4th generation thing is just embarrassing ignorance from who wrote this.



Ricube commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

This move seems really strange to me... I'm not getting those games until owning them on the virtual console brings no advantage. I can still play them on my Game Boy Player for the Gamecube... also with all gamecube games. Even the price point is wrong as you can get physical copies of these games for less.
Anyway, those games run on with an emulation program, why can't Nintendo create an emulator that actually improves the games? I like to play some N64 and Gamecube games with an emulator on my PC instead of the physical copies on the consoles i still own (because I collect them...) because the graphics are much better. Why don't they optimize the games for the new hardware, for example? Now Nintendo is trying to keep the fanbase busy providing old games for a way to high price! This is a profit-only move because it's absolutely costless loading those games on the VC, or how long do you think it takes to emulate a game? This makes me really angry!



Ricube commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

@NbaJunkie the thing is that even the minority of the fanbase really buys VC games more than once. I only bought Metroid because the was the 30 cents promotion. Prices for VC games are way to high (higer then new and really good indie games). I would buy a lot of them if they were cheaper and tied to my account so that I can play them wherw I want.
Another point is tha I would like to upgrade from my 3DS to a 3DS xl (that means buy a new console, nintendo) but I have a lot of downloaded games on my 3DS so that is not going to happen (non more money to you, Nintendo). The VC market has never been a success also because of those problems, mainly because you always have a cheap, easy to use alternative: emulators (i have heard they work perfectly with NES, SNES, GB, GBA games...)



Ricube commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:

So, is Sonic becoming a Nintendo Mascot? ;-) For anyone ho was playing in the '90 it's weird to see that Sega has become Nintendo's greatest friend. Therw was a time when they where great rivals. This game looks really good, it reminds me of Sonic Advebtures 2 Battle on the Gamecube...



Ricube commented on Nintendo Confirms "Super Indie Connection Sale...:

I didn't read the condition to be eligible for the discounted price... I just thought it was a normal discount. If I download one of the games for full price will I still be eligible or am I too late?

I think I already know the answer... should pay more attention in the future...



Ricube commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

@XCWarrior same opinion here. You can only understand it when you try it. For me even the use of the gamepad in Zelda TWW was fantastic, switching items on the go and especially looking at the map while sailing! Even with this basic use it improves the experience. They just need to push the gamepad and touchscreen features when they make a big game that sells. Maybe create mario kart circuits by drawing or some special attacks items.



Ricube commented on Nintendo Download: 30th January (Europe):

Wasn't there a post some days ago that Spin the Bottle owners get a free DLC when it comes out in February? I really think it's time to get that little funny party game... ;-)



Ricube commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

It's sad that Nintendo's only "weapon" against XBO and PS4 is Super Mario 3D World. It's a great game, but the problem on the WiiU is that there are not enough games to cover all genres. I would not get Sony's or Microsoft's console because instead I'll rather buy a PC where, thanks to Steam, there are almost all great 3rd party games at lower prices and running on a much more powerful, upgradable machine. So the weakpoints, in my opinion, are that N's first parties can't cover all the needs of a gamer and the other two consoles are way too similar to a PC, that's why I think that int the future, and with the perspective of a Steam machine, console's and PCs are going to merge into an hybrid. Nintendo is doing the right thing as long as they focus on their strenghts: make great games and great consoles for those games. Nintendo needs to continue making toys (instead of super-technological stuff), because toys are always fun to play with!



Ricube commented on Review: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Wii U):

The only AC game I really enjoyed was AC II, maybe because I live next to Venice and that city has not really changed... Now I can't think of the game when I go there and try to climb some buildings ;-) I also played AC III on WiiU but all the wilderness was kind of boring after a while. For myself I would appreciate a new AC game that plays in cities



Ricube commented on Super Mario 3D World Director and Producer Dis...:

@Kodeen Actually AC3 does not support a 3D mode for 3D TV, it just duplicate the image in green and red so you need cheap plastic glasses. Processing power is not involved in that game. But from his statement it seems that WiiU supports a 3D output for "real" 3D, 'cause I think the GPU needs to support that mode. If they make 3D games I'm going to get a 3D TV!



Ricube commented on Satoru Iwata Emphasizes "An Opportunity" for t...:

I see that the problem with low commercials is anywhere, not only here in Italy. In one year I have NEVER seen a WiiU commercial and only tonight I've seen more than one ps3/4 and xb360/1. Even an arkham origins trailer not mentioning the WiiU version... In stores the WiiU and it's games are hidden in a corner and a lot of internet shops still have wiiu games in the Wii section. Even had no WiiU section until a few months ago!



Ricube commented on Nintendo Download: 17th October (North America):

I downloaded Steamworld Dig yesterday. It really is a simple but engaging, fun and clever game and I recommend it to everyone.
I live in Europe and don't really understand why on the eShop Nintendo charges the USD price in EURO equivalent. I mean, this game costs 7.19 € that are 9.82 $ by current change rate. I see why it happens with retail games, but even digital downloads? That's kind of unfair...



Ricube commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants the Wii U Zelda's Hyrule to ...:

@ICHIkatakuri It sure is, you are rigth. But it's always in a time when the world has been rebuild and a new menace is coming. Maybe twilight princess plays in something like a "dark age", or the future in Ocarina of Time (with the destroyed buildings in Hyrule, and the zombie-like creatures), or the dark realm in A link to the past. I would like to play in a destroyed world, were Evil has won. As I said, i was thinking about a game not made by Nintendo, kind of a spin-off from the Zelda series. Maybe with Tingle smashing giant monsters with a large sword ;-)



Ricube commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants the Wii U Zelda's Hyrule to ...:

Ha! Anyway, I'm sure I will love the new Zelda made by Anouma and hope the maintain the high quality. But I was serious when I said some other producer could make a more sci-fi zelda (like Retro or platinum).



Ricube commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants the Wii U Zelda's Hyrule to ...:

Oh! And Nintendo should let Platinum Games make a post-apocaliptic futuristic steampunk action game. Zelda should be playable and all weapons have a futuristic look. There still should be a lot of exploration and the usual sound when opening treasure chests. AND he might meet Samus in a space level and team up with her!
And a semi-mechanical Epona that has rockets and can fly!



Ricube commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants the Wii U Zelda's Hyrule to ...:

@Wonder_Mask Yeah maybe an island like in Link's Awakening, with a lot of sidequests and non story dungeons to explore! They could even do some dream sections where everything could happen, like... in a dream! (kind of a dark realm in A Link to the Past or shadow realm in Twilight Princess).
I also love the non linear dungeons and items you can buy right from the start they are making for A Link Between Worlds, hope they bring it over to the WiiU Zelda



Ricube commented on A Decade After Being Bought By Microsoft, Rare...:

I didn't know that Woodrooffe is creative director at Rare. Maybe you can hear the sound of a child's dreams shattering to pieces. I mean, the first two Simon the Sorcerer were so amazing and my first adventure games! I can't believe this guy is still in business now working for M$. Such a wasted talent. He should go away from Rare and start his own company, a lot of people my age and older would support for example a Kickstarter game from this guy.



Ricube commented on Nintendo UK Looking To Raise Awareness Of Wii ...:

@Freakazoid Ich bin zur haelfte auch deutsch. I've got 3 figurines from mcDonalds and even here Nintendo characters are beloved as anywhere. The thing is people just doesn't know about the WiiU. Anyway Nintendo sure has a stronger presence in Germany than in Italy. Until the Gamecube game's wheren't even localised in italian language.



Ricube commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

I would, I also signed the petition on even if I'm not really a fan of the series. Still I think it's a game with a high value and... well... if someone doesn't like it for all the right reasons he might have, he doesn't have to buy it.
Anyway, even on this site this game moves a lot of opinions and I think that means people are really interested in it!



Ricube commented on Wii U Name Isn't To Blame For Poor Sales, Says...:

@Fingeldor Except for the sarcastic "better than wii 1" (really funny) This would have worked a lot better. Even in stores the put wii and wiiU games together in the same corner, and maybe a sign on the shelf that says "WiiU games are NOT compatible with the Wii". I always thought, before they showed the new console, that Wii two (read Wii Too) would have been the best name. Look at the Playstation...



Ricube commented on Check out SEGA Australia's Impressive Golden A...:

This really reminds me of the days when a went to a friend's home ho had a PC (386) and this game... a 2 players game. We always failed at the 6th level or so... Believe me that in my memories it had much better graphics than this one. Anyway this would be very cool and I would absolutely love to buy a remake of a classic beat 'em up (I feel kind of old writing posts like this...)
