@DESS-M-8 How to switch to Gamepad mode on Arkham Origins without using TV:

1) Start game. When Gamepad shows WayneTech logo, press +. Wait 20 seconds.
2) You would have started at the default save location, so just press a to select it the default one.
3) Wait two seconds, then press down and a.
4) Wait two seconds, press up and a.

That should switch you to Gamepad. I do it all the time as my TV is not with me at the moment.

Don't want to bust anyone's balls, I'm going to simmer down on this. The PS4 and XBONE have yet to come to the fight in that part of the world. I do hope Nintendo gets to take advantage of the Christmas while they are still absent.



shad0w-7 commented on The YouTube Wii U App Update is Now Live:

@unrandomsam While I cannot comment on how good or bad IE on XBOX One is when combined with a tablet and Smart Glass, I must point out that your statement is not relevant. To reiterate:

"Wii U web browser is the best browser on a console - ever."

Using Smart Glass with a third party tablet to browse with IE, while equivalent in terms of function and experience, is not the on par with to my statement.
Here's why: You don't get a $300 - $500 tablet with your $500 XBOX One purchase. (Do you need XBOX Live to use IE?)
The tablet is external 3rd party hardware. It is not a peripheral that is part of the console's function, and it is not purpose built for use on the console.
So, you need to test browsing with IE from your XBOX One using your XBOX One only, and then compare that to the Wii U. That is inline with my statement.

And for the record, if I had a tablet, I'd just use the tablet's browser.
But I don't have a tablet, so the Wii U fills that requirement for me.

That being said, if I had an XBOX One and a tablet with smartglass and IE (And XBOX Live - if required - I don't know), I might use it to browse on my XBOX One. But the feature would never be that relevant, as I'd still use the tablet if I wanted to browse something.

So I stand by my statement:
It is the best browser on a console - ever.

And remember, it is not a statement intended to start an argument. It is my opinion that I am sharing.

I hope you understand the point I am trying to make.

@Caryslan Erm. Dude. The Wii U fully takes care of the Wii issue. You can migrate all your saves, WiiWare, VC games over to a Wii U to continue that expeirieince there. And then you still have Nintendo's next gen system to expeirience. Things like the new controller, the best Internet Browser across any gaming platform, MiiVerse and a new improved eShop with Indie titles dropping in on a weekly basis. Your Wii has been replaced by the Wii U. That's the next evolutionary step for you as a Nintendo gamer.

In regards to your statement about XBOX and PS3 being pure profit for their respective manufacturers. I seem to be reading fairly recently that MS or Sony were only now breaking even with their production costs on these 7 year old consoles, while the Wii was profitable from day one.

Nintendo hasn't abandoned anyone. They just have a new better Wii out there. It's called a Wii U. If you haven't abandoned them, you'll go and pick one up. Simple.



shad0w-7 commented on Soapbox: The Wii Changed The Face of Gaming, B...:

Wii U was a natural move for me. I transferred all my stuff over, and I've packed my good ol' Wii away. It's now part of history for me. There is no need to keep it out and powered up anymore. I'll never get rid of it though. But back to the point. The Wii U is a complete replacement, because it's got a Wii built-in. If i want to play my old Wii games, or my old VC games, I just click a channel. Done deal. Who else has done that in Next Gen?
And don't even get me started on why the Wii U rocks.



shad0w-7 commented on Nintendo Wants Wii U To Be "The Console That E...:

@bizcuthammer Dude, there's no reason any of those games can't run on Wii U hardware, with or without making use of the Gamepad. Bottom line is, there are devs who are happier to be identified with PS and XBOX than they are with Wii U, while other devs (the lesser of the two groups) don't care and make things for Wii U.



shad0w-7 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

@Yorumi Agreed dude. I will put money on this: When Bayonetta 2 releases, we will get a true hardcore, HD, donkey-kicker. I predict this:

  • Super smooth frame rate
  • Quick loading times
  • Amazingly awesome HD graphics
  • Over the top, "hardcore"-kick-you-in-the-balls action

Can't wait for this game.
It will be a benchmark I reckon. At least for the Wii U's early life.



shad0w-7 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

@SkywardCrowbar right you are. Bundle an external with the next deployment of Wii Us. Like a 250GB or something. Strike a deal with Western Digital or Seagate to get an awesome deal for it. Add $25 to the price if you have to, or if Nintendo feel like being champs, include it at the same price. Launch it this Christmas. Be awesome.



shad0w-7 commented on Former Nintendo Marketing Specialist Sheds Lig...:

People in the industry tend to hide behind corporate walls.
They don't explain their situation, and then the speculation begins.
For instance, I still would like to know how much of a saving WB is making by not including multiplayer in Arkham Origins, as this is the only reason I can see them making the cut in the first place. But is that saving worth the damage to the WiiU version?



shad0w-7 commented on Talking Point: Wii U and Third-Party Inconsist...:

@marshi - dude - I agree with you in regards to the reaction being too strong with the Splinter Cell thing. That being said, with WiiU's two screens, it would have made local co-op the most complete. Add this to all the other WiiU only features, and suddenly you have the definative version of the game. IGN would have lost their doodoopoopoocacadoodles, because suddenly the WiiU would have won something. Would have done something right. But we didn't get local co-op, now did we? So what are they going to say?
WiiU got gimped. Again. Stay away. Blah blah blah. Developement staff are dime a dozen to these companies. Need a feature added quick? Put more staff on it.
Watch the profanity please — TBD



shad0w-7 commented on Looks Like Batman: Arkham Origins Isn't Gettin...:

You know what would be cool?
And let me know if you agree or not, but how about everyone just stops reporting the bad Nintendo news, and instead focuses on what WiiU is getting, what it does well, the good things that are said about it etc.
How much happier would everyone be?

I see a lot of Capcom hate right now. But let us not forget, they've shifted the Monster Hunter franchise to Nintendo consoles. And it's exclusive for now. And let me take this further by saying it's actually one of their best franchises right now, and we all get to play it while nobody else does.

@CanisWolfred Dude, PS4 and XBOX One have no installed base. At all. Doesn't matter how you cut it. The money for all those new systems are not in the bank yet. Nothing is guaranteed. So porting costs a chunk of change to do. So what. If there are losses on the WiiU side, they can be made up on the other consoles. Releasing it as an eShop version is minimal investment, the least they could do is pay the fans some service.
