RougeLeader commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

i'm happy for them to take their time and wring every last watt of power out of the wiiu. but i'll be hoping for 60 fps, 30 is barely tolerable in a racing game, even if it means the trees dont have sloths loping around in them.
also boycotting a game because it doesnt come out at the same time as the other versions is no way to get 3rd party support

@ollibald

sweet i have been waiting for this game since i bought my wiiu. what made me buy the system was the support/overhaul the eshop had gotten, while i could of bought this on steam id much prefer the gamepad/tv and to see quality indie titles on nintendo. cheers

oh yeah, i love the gamepad. best controller ever. particularly as an older gamer i love web browsing, youtube, gaming with my tv freed up for others or sport. developers got to grips with the DS and made great and profitable games, i dont see why that cant happen with the WiiU. maybe it hasnt yet because tv games are so much bigger projects than handhelds?
also the size and weight of the gamepad are perfect. i hear a lot of whingeing about the short battery life, sure that could be improved but really its not a problem for me as when ever i take a break i just chuck it into the charge cradle, even just 10-15 minutes every so often is good enough to extend the 5 hours nominal life. people make a meal out of the underpowered specs, but i cant think of too many games whose nature would make the wiiu version impossible, it generally comes down to graphical fidelity, and i prefer good controls and 60fps to detail

@kendorage

yeah i just saw it on play-asia and its only $30. japanese text only i'm assuming and i am not sure i can afford a japanese wii u anyway. despite my bitching i'll probably buy nobunaga anyway if it is released in pal. i put so many hours into l'empereur and uncharted waters in high school.

i think the major third parties looked at the industry and said games are too expensive to make 3 discrete versions of our games, so i either you guys ninty, ms and sony, share a common architecture or we'll just leave you out of our plans. if i wanted the very best looking version of a game as my basic requirement i'd just upgrade my p.c more often.
also i hate the idea of fb and twitch integration on my console.

RougeLeader commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

after growing up with amstrad, commodore. x86 XT, amiga and sega systems i switched to nintendo when i saw mario kart on snes at a shop. i had previously found nintendos approach to gfx and gameplay odd and unappealing. after the snes though i became a nintendo fanatic, even buying a ds having never been interested in portables before. i got sick of gaming at about the end of the gamecube era. i saw the homogenisation of both hardware platform and software design as boring and ignoring what makes video games compelling, namely interactivity. nintendos focus on that basic foundation has kept me gaming solely on their platforms apart from strategy and tactical fps on pc. their questioning/reappraisal of what makes gaming gaming and boldly embracing new ideas is to me what gaming is about.

oh man. i dont see why i should be caring about the release of nobunagas ambition when there is version of Romance of the Three Kingdoms 12 on wii u. i wish nintendo would translate and publish that for the west even as an eshop title

RougeLeader commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

compare nintendos approach to many other big companies. you wouldnt be able to buy mario kart you would pay per play, the disc would be a key and nothing else. always on internet etc.
the value of mario kart 8 is staggering. quality of experience, single and multiplayer, the replayability, which just got a huge boost etc.
the negativity here is laughable. dont want to have fun, dont buy it.
some were even complaining about the mercedes cross promotion! a car company! what is it doing in mario kart? its not Kia or Seat or VW its merc who have a glorious racing pedigree. these people are also forgetting that Wario has been driving a cadillac for over ten years in this game series.
I reckon nintendo have handled this perfectly

pretty hypocritical to bang on about apparently "skimpy" outfits and then take every opportunity to publish them, alleging falsely in my view that they are controversial. dont know anyone offended by a sports bra, particularly not women. anyone seen the ripping yarns episode where michael palins dad dressed in black head to to toe bangs on about lewd and lascivious behaviour when its not happening or even the topic?

"It is an evil book!"
"No dear thats not the atlas!"

RougeLeader commented on Image & Form's Olle Hakansson Teases New Steam...:

i was tempted to pick up the dsiware steam world game after playing dig, but i didnt as i hate tower defence games. so i will take a good look at whatever Image & Form deliver next. tower deviance is as appealing as a cross between hello kitty, tomodachi life and a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. TD is the essence of casual cured only by a dose of Fire Emblem or Advance Wars.

RougeLeader commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

this game is utterly compelling, in part the controls which are perfect and the setting and dig dugish/mr driller mechanics of wanting to go deeper and deeper. very close to perfect in my book.
