SKTTR commented on Review: PEG SOLITAIRE (Wii U eShop):

Put your first ten games in a collection called RCMADIAX ARCADE for, let's be fair, 3 bucks and that's probably the bar where I think I take the plunge (if only because of the variety and acceptable amount of content). There might be two or three games in it I would play and then pass over to my friends. It would be nice if the highscore-based games had actual highscore lists where friends & family can put their names or initials in. Such a collection could then possibly reach a 6/10 in my book. I'm sorry to say, RC, but I've played all of your cloned and basic games decades ago and the concepts, content, and audiovisuals don't seem to have evolved since then. I'm talking 1978 4-bit stuff here. Respect for staying true to the roots and making your games so simple my Grandma can play them, but if you develop overused classics for Wii U you need to be prepared for the Nintendo gamers that can imagine a modern 2016 version that uses all of the Wii U's features, or shows its graphical power, or boosts the value with massive content, or oozes with charm, or just pick your own combinations. Still waiting for at least one of these to happen in your games.



SKTTR commented on Review: PEG SOLITAIRE (Wii U eShop):

At least this one has the minimal kind of content a basic and totally bland 1 dollar game should have. Pixel Slime U and Color Bombs were also among the ones that had at least a bit of meat on the bone. 2/10

Don't Crash, Skiisy, Avoider, and Spikey Walls failed on that. 1/10



SKTTR commented on Chasing Aurora Dev Broken Rules Offers To Port...:

Oh these guys are ur-great! I am thankful they picked this one up. Can't wait to play it.

I really respect Broken Rules for their WiiWare game 'And Yet It Moves' and their Wii U Guacamelee port.

And yes, what about the Secrets of Reatikon port? That one looked so nice.
Probably scared because of Chasing Aurora sales. But that was just the racing/multiplayer part of an artful flying adventure, like a mix of Child of Light and Tengami.

Recently I bought Electronic Super Joy, and it would be great if they could publish the sequel too (I know it's been ported to Wii U by another developer) It's been out in the US for a while.



SKTTR commented on Nine Nintendo Titles Pass One Million Sales Fo...:

Even when Nintendo is doomed and dead, they always seem to have around ten millionsellers every year - not even counting third party games - for the last 20 years!

I don't think anyone else is capable of that. Most companies struggle to have even one game hitting 1 million.



SKTTR commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:

Mad times. It's weird to even think about it... The Wii U is only 3 years and 2 months young and we talk about launch titles for the next console. Zelda and Pikmin are in the works for Wii U, no need for a port, especially if the new console is, hopefully, and again, backwards compatible.

What should I say, a main series Animal Crossing, Metroid, a main series Pokémon, a new F-Zero, Wave Race, Excite Truck/Bike, Mario Sunshine 2, Luigi's Mansion, Kid Icarus, Prof. Layton, Paper Mario, more epic endless RPGs and this and that, and yeah of course that would make us happy, but I can't see why all these games shouldn't be on Wii U. It's the perfect console that could handle all these games beautifully! It's a console that, honestly, just needs more great sequels of great classics in full HD and with online multiplayer (for the Nintendo tech geeks), and with innovative, practical, useful, or funny uses of the GamePad (for the Nintendo gameplay geeks).
Plus a few surprises! (to add new audiences)

For me NX is a far away thing. Maybe at the end of the year, after Zelda and some NX facts I join the hypetrain. The only thing I say is, if it's a hybrid console it should mean a combination of 3DS and Wii U, and that means: more games! Something both Nintendo consoles need at the moment. And you don't need 2 Nintendo consoles anymore.

A warning for an too early NX release: as a hybrid console, with the power of at least a PS4 (what the dreamers expect here), it will be the most powerful handheld ever! That leads to very high energy consumption and very high production cost though. Wouldn't it be an expensive handheld/tablet/controller/laptop-thingy that only lasts one hour on the go? Why do so many wish for that? Give it time!

Until then, enjoy the Wii U! That's Nintendo's big console now.



SKTTR commented on SmashPad Arrives on iOS and Aims to Deliver a ...:

@AlexSora89: I think Melee being the most successful Gamecube game added a great deal to Smash's status as well. (Not to mention, even Smash 64 was one of the best fighters of its time.) The mass market 100millionseller system Wii and a game called Brawl was the third step to cement Smash's status.

amiibo and an Nintendo All-Star range of 50+ characters was just step number 4.



SKTTR commented on The North American eShop Winter Warm-Up Sale C...:

I have all those games except Castlevania and Breath of Fire, sure they'd be tempting but it's not for Europe.

And yeah, while America gets great Nintendo sales since start of December, we in Europe just got 8 games on 4 days(!)
I got Game & Wario which I could have gotten cheaper on retail, hurts just a little.
Bayonetta 2 on that sale though was a huge disappointment - for people who already got Bayo1 it had no discount at all - it was still 29,99€ - and on retail there are a million copies for 20€.
Oh well, I also got Xenoblade Chronicles, because it was basically free (you paid 9,99€ and got a 10€ discount on Xenoblade X) but like most people I already own it and completed it on Wii.



SKTTR commented on Review: SKEASY (Wii U eShop):

The core game is there, working and being fun. So why are there no different stages, modes, obstacles, collectibles, backgrounds... basically bonus things a programmer could add in a few hours. I don't buy home console games that have zero content. And why always these horrible short music loops?! Can't you put in a 2-5 minute track at leas for those 2-5 minute sessions these games are going to last? These 20 second loops are annoying and I see why reviews of RC's games always mention a mute button.



SKTTR commented on Video: Collecting Every Wii Game Is Difficult,...:

I have 190 Wii games (on disc) and there's about 10 I would love to add to have it complete with all good quality games (sorely missing A Boy and his Blob). There's another bunch of about 20 titles people always come up with, like the Boom Blox games that I should look into some day. And then there's about 20 other fantastic games like Excite Bots and Arc Rise Fantasia that never released here in Europe.

Even though this guy has an amazing complete Wii collection, what is it without Another Code R or Project Zero 2 Wii Edition? At least Europe got these, and a few more.



SKTTR commented on Review: Bigley's Revenge (Wii U eShop):

@spurgeonryan: Meme Run had a glitch. Sometimes you just fell through the ground and Game over. Which adds to the unacceptability of an already extremely simple and effortless game.
How'd you draw ties with Devil's Third is beyond ma goodness.
Devil's Third is actually good. And has content for 100+ hours. And graphics. And innovation. And good controls. And Story. And online.
Meme Run and Bigley's Revenge wouldn't even pass as Mario Party minigames. They're more like some hilarious "throwaway" WarioWare microgames. But in WarioWare you get around 300 microgames for only 6,99 in the same Wii U eShop.

From my perspective Ninja Pig games are only acceptable for either very young, or very childish meme fans with too much money, or trashgamers with too much money.



SKTTR commented on ​Mini Mario & Friends amiibo Challenge Launc...:

Nintendo developed and published many good WiiWare games.
The Wii U eShop really lacks Nintendo's support in comparison.

  • 1. 530 Eco Shooter (Intelligent Systems)
  • 2. Actionloop Twist (Mitchell Corp.)
  • 3. Art Style CUBELLO
  • 4. Art Style ROTOHEX
  • 5. Art Style ORBIENT
  • 6. Art Style light trax
  • 7. Art Style PENTA TENTACLES (all made by SKIP)

  • 9. Bonsai Barber (Zoonami)
  • 10. Dr. Mario & Germ Buster (ARIKA)
  • 11. Excitebike: World Challenge (Monster Games)
  • 12. Hydroventure (Curve)
  • 13. LONPOS (Genki)
  • 14. MaBoShi (Mindware)
  • 15. My Pokémon Ranch (AMBRELLA)
  • 16. Pokémon Rumble (AMBRELLA)
  • 17. Rock N' Roll Climber (Vitei)
  • 18. TETRIS Party (HUDSON SOFT)
  • 19. ThruSpace: High Velocity 3D Puzzle (Keys Factory)
  • 20. WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase (Intelligent Systems)
  • 21. You, Me, and the Cubes (fyto)

  • 24. Doc Louis' Punch-Out!! (no EU release)
  • 25. Grill-Off with Ultra Hand (no EU release)
  • 26, 27, 28. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon (Japan Only)
    Not to mention we had good third parties like SQUARE ENIX, HUDSON SOFT, KONAMI, TAITO, CAPCOM and many more supporting the Wii Shop with new (and old) games.


SKTTR commented on Developers Dig into Sales Failure of Toto Temp...:

It's on sale right now, and frankly, I have more fun with Toto Temple Deluxe than with recent similar games (multiplayer 2D platformers) such as Runbow or Extreme Exorcism.
The gameplay is better, but there isn't that much content apart from a ton of unlockable goat costumes. I unlocked Juan from Guacamelee and tons of other characters... it seems there are about 60+ cameo characters to unlock. And while the "battlefields" seem all extremely welldesigned, I think there are just 8 of them.
Anyway,, just like Runbow and Extreme Exorcism, Toto Temple has its own fun and unique twist in that particular genre, and it's a great little game if you have family or friends around. More ppl should give it a chance.



SKTTR commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Can Exploit Its Rich H...:

As I said a thousand times, the Wii U would be perfect for basically any touch controlled DS highlight that would get a boost with amazing HD visuals and better tech. Remakes or sequels of Prof. Layton, Phoenix Wright, Another Code, Hotel Dusk, Nintendogs, Animal Crossing, Trauma Center, Dr. Kawashima, Style Boutique... I think they did good sequels to Art Academy, Kirby's Power Paintbrush, Mario vs DK, and Pullblox World but that wasn't enough. They also did outstanding sequels to Wii games (Xenoblade Chronicles X, Mario Kart 8), and amazing new games (Splatoon, Super Mario Maker), but more Nintendo brands would have helped selling the Wii U.

So a hybrid console that doesn't divide Nintendo's content into two consoles, but one that plays all of Nintendo's releases is very welcome. Just don't rush the system, bring the games.



SKTTR commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

Zelda U will show Wii U's GamePad capabilities. Practical GamePad map stuff and cool new open world stuff.
Zelda NX will probably get a hybrid Zelda game with multiple players, like Tri Force Heroes HD or Four Swords Adventures HD.



SKTTR commented on Minecraft Has Become the Ninth Best-Selling Ga...:

I will look into Minecraft when they add Splatoon-like gyro aim. I doubt it will happen so I keep playing Xenoblade, and get Twilight Princess HD, Starfox Zero, Fire Emblem X, Zelda U, and Pikmin 4 instead.



SKTTR commented on Feature: Time to Vote for Your Nintendo Life G...:

Super Mario Maker and Xenoblade X definately. Third choice was difficult but I will put Yoshi's Woolly World before Splatoon - I love both but I feel Woolly World needs my vote more.

On eShop Citizens of Earth is missing in the poll! That would have definately won one of my votes! Found it amazing, despite the many bugs! So I voted for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, Affordable Space Adventures, and Don't Starve. (I know I have to get Binding of Isaac and Human Resource Machine soon.)



SKTTR commented on Microsoft Gets Cute About Possible Rare Replay...:

I'd pay 50 for this on Wii U. I still have all the N64 games, but honestly, I'd get this for Kameo: Elements of Power, Viva Pinata, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, and Banjo Nuts&Bolts. These are the ones missing on Nintendo and in my collection,



SKTTR commented on Fascinating Patent Shows Nintendo Portable Uti...:

Weird buttons, and the screen doesn't seem practical.

You have your thumbs on the screen at all times, for almost every type of game (except for games using only motion or shoulder button controls), blocking parts of the screen, your sight.

Screens and buttons are usually the first things that break or wear out. Combining these make for a relatively fragile system.

And again, games ported to this, need extra money and time to be made for this weird screen shape.

Is that a desperate move to combine a controller with a tablet?
This is a huge step backwards, coming from the Wii U GamePad.

It could be a nice little niche console/collectible with a few games though, like Pokémon mini.



SKTTR commented on Poll: Are You Excited About Minecraft: Wii U E...:

Because of online I still think this version can be great fun. But labeled as "Wii U Edition" there are expectations!

They should have brought this megahit up to a Wii U standard by adding fluid motion aiming (as seen in other Wii U games like Splatoon) and more comfortable touchscreen controls for tedious inventory/crafting stuff. As it seems it's all d-pad/stick controls and that's not what I would label a "Wii U Edition". At least not in this case where Wii U's exclusive control features would make it a better game.

From the bits of infos I gathered this is just "Minecraft: Xbox Port for Wii U". Doesn't sound too bad as there is at least a Microsoft quality standing behind it, but combined with the Nintendo-quality it would make this port awesome! Nintendo-skinned characters and themes don't do the job, I'm sorry, use the benefits of the hardware for better gameplay! Seems like workers made this game and not a real development team.
I hope for more details coming soon. While some things indeed make room for disappointment there's always the option for the developers to update the game or surprise us to turn the opinion round.

Apart from the obvious ones that have voice chat with friends (like Smash) I know Trine 1&2 have voice chat... and MH3U I think.



SKTTR commented on Minecraft: Wii U Edition Will Support the Wii ...:

You know, on Wii U are obvious options for better, more comfortable, and easier controls available. To not use them is ignorant and/or lazy.

If WiiU-Minecraft had GamePad motion controls for aiming/targeting (huge example: Splatoon) and GamePad touchscreen inventory controls (like Cube Life: Island Survival) then it would be the best version of Minecraft ever!

Keep it real. Microsoft can't do that! We get online, voice chat, keyboard support. It's Minecraft - Xbox Edition for Wii U and not Minecraft: Wii U Edition.



SKTTR commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

1. Super Mario Maker
2. Wind Waker HD
3. Smash 4 U
4., 5. & 6. Placeholder for Zelda U, Starfox, and Xenoblade

Honorable mentions:

7. Yoshi's Woolly World is way waaay better than expected. I'm even saying it's the best Yoshi game ever.
8. After the disappointing Mario Kart Wii, I was glad Mario Kart 8 got the series back into form
9. & 10. Hyrule Warriors and Splatoon were absolutely worth the money with all their content and replay value.
11. & 12. Super Mario 3D World is great fun for being the first 3D platformer for up to 4 players simultaneously and New Super Mario Bros. U was unique with its innovative 5-player mode.

Small disappointments:

Pikmin 3 was too short and complicated compared to Pikmin 2 and I don't like the DLC. That being said, I couldn't get enough of its story mode and can't wait for Pikmin 4.

I couldn't get into DKC:TF and TW101. They just didn't hook me. Sad because I loved the DKC trilogy on SNES and even 100%ed Returns on Wii.
The Wonderful 101 had annoying characters... I think it's because their voice actors were bull.

PS. I still have to download Captain Toad, Bayonetta 2, Lego City, Scribblenauts, and Deus Ex if they ever go on sale.

And I skipped Monster Hunter because I have it on Wii and couldn't stomach starting over from scratch.... this game needed a Wii-to-WiiU file transfer.



SKTTR commented on SNES Title Super Star Wars Coming to PS4 and Vita:

Super Star Wars cooler retro release than this weeks The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks, or Animal Crossing: Wild World? You're such a joker. Especially since we we got Super Star Wars and the whole SNES trilogy years ago on Wii VC, and even more years ago on SNES.



SKTTR commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Endures Awful UK Launch ...:

I love Chibi Robo but this doesn't feel like a Chibi Robo game. The Gamecube (and Wii) original was the best, followed by the sequel (Park Patrol on DS). These were original and fun RPG adventures. Some of the best games of their time (and even today). I feel like Zip Lash is just a way too early (and unnecessary) spin off, just like AC amiibo festival. Kind of alienating their fan base by putting lovable characters into unrelated genres. As good as these games may be, they're not what fans wanted.



SKTTR commented on Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch (Wii U eShop):

I just beat this game (on Wii U). It's very fun and innovative, but only 5 hours. Fortunately many hidden collectibles and unlockable achievements, time trials, bonus chapters, and co-op control bring lots of replay value. The developers could do an update to fix the area with the framerate drop and the muted voices on tv though - but it's still a great game. 8/10.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

10 new games in one week. (3 retail downloads, 2 eShop downloads, and 5 Virtual Console titles). I think that's a new record. I think I'm getting Electronic Super Joy, and I hope the sequel which is out in US will make its way over here soon too.



SKTTR commented on Review: Human Resource Machine (Wii U eShop):

I got Octodad, Slender, Freedom Planet, and Swords&Soldiers II this week. I hoped Human Resource Machine would arrive in EU on 29th Oct as well, but I'm ok with what we've got. Will get this next time, probably in combination with The Binding of Isaac Rebirth.



SKTTR commented on International Age Rating Coalition System, IAR...:

The times of having a German, an Austrian, and a UK Nintendo Network ID just to have full access over the European eShop catalogue are over soon!

Soon we can finally have 1001 Spikes, Master Reboot, Ittle Dew and other unreleased gems on the German and Australian eShop with just one account.

Certainly another fair step into a better next gen.



SKTTR commented on Video: This Laparoscopic Wii U Controller is T...:

I completed Underground 100% with Wii U GamePad controls. It was quite good if you're out for something different. It's a little rough around the edges though. I'd replay it if I had access to that other controller.
