Ricube commented on Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop):

@YannEA Thank you for supporting our console! You really did a great job. Armillo is so fun, immediate but still pretty hard in later levels. It reminds me of some old school platformers on the N64 i loved.



Ricube commented on Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop):

"In terms of technical prowess this has to be one of the most impressive eShop-exclusive titles" Really? Don't get me wrong, I played for about 2 hours and really like this game, but I'm not really impressed by the graphics... I mean, Nano Assault neo is much better. This one reminds me of some Gamecube games (in HD, obviously)



Ricube commented on Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop):

I got this after reading the great opinions on Miiverse. Now I need to free some space on my WiiU (or maybe to buy an external hard drive...) to download more great games!



Ricube commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I was actually thinking about getting a PS3 now that it is really cheap (console and games)... But anyway I bought every Nintendo Console at launch and have no time to play with another... except for some PC games



Ricube commented on E3 2014: Bayonetta 2 Comes With The Original G...:

Right... peach costume... I'm also pretty happy that they will include the first game. Even if I would have liked it as an eshop download to pass the time till October. Anyways, I like that Nintendo is going to sell 2 games for every new game ;-)



Ricube commented on Check Out This Incredible Valve / Super Smash ...:

Well... didn't Nintendo registered a trademark for a game called "code name S.T.E.A.M. some time ago? ................. I don't think it has something to do with Valve, but it was the first thing i thought about. ;-)



Ricube commented on Here's a Video of The Temple of Time Made With...:

I also think this may be too realistic for a Zelda game. Still, i love it! I for myself like the darker look of TP much better and I think that game has an amazing art style and beautiful graphics (just look at the interior of Hyrule Castle). My question: is the WiiU capable of graphics like these? Probably Nintendo has made a graphic engine just for the new zelda on WiiU and I'm sure that game is going to show the real power of the WiiU! Just hope it's on par with this, anyway better than the graphics demo of e3 2013



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!
