SKTTR commented on Video: Curve Studios Demonstrates Stealth Inc ...:

The ingame instructions and electronic manual don't describe some of the more deep stuff in the level editor (like some functions in the "logic" category).
I'd like an indepth look video next, or better yet some kind of ingame demonstration/instruction in an update.

SKTTR commented on Review: Thomas Was Alone (Wii U eShop):

Sound glitch after credits in main menu, the game, the commentary, everywhere. Needed to quit and restart game because it wouldn't go away.

I played through the Wii U version twice (without and with audio commentary).
Story and character development feels more like an unfinished experiment. Characters disappear without explanation: once characters get interesting they will never show up again. Even Thomas is just gone at the end and you beat the game with other characters. I don't understand, even the commentary says it's Thomas' story.

The ending is open, but I can make no sense out of it in Thomas Was Alone because there are two new characters beating the game instead of the original 6 or 7 main characters. I thought the plot wasn't satisfying because all the favourite characters kinda vanish without a goodbye. Did I miss something?

Skipping framerate issue when voice kicks in cost a few lives, especially when you're performing a big jump across obstacles, but you have unlimited lives so that's just a minor thing.

Anyway, the 120 puzzle platforming stages are an engaging mix of story, art and challenge, and the commentary is interesting enough to beat the game twice. There's even time trial online leaderboards (with friends I think) for each stage. So there's even more replay value.

Not a bad game, but I expected more from the "story about friendship".

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

story in the manual? uh, i dunno. they should put story, instructions, and everything into the actual game just like (almost) every modern game. especially when there's an elaborate background story. more meat to the bone. in a digital manual it never feels as immersive.

looks fun though. is this coming to eu?

I'm not interested in the 3DS but I'm interested in having all characters in the Wii U version, so if Mewtwo is the only paid DLC that's at least an option I can live with. I hope they announce the price soon

Didn't Reggienator start off the fight a few days ago?
Now he just got something in return.

But do I understand that Sony guy right? Sony is now copying Nintendo's last gen strategy to get casuals on board and that's the reason why they have the better console at the moment?

Nintendo has already released the most innovative and most comfortable console with loads of amazing exclusives and other great games plus they're always looking for the next fun innovations they can bring to gaming (and yes, I'm aware Nintendo is still not perfect), but Sony goes back to 2006 to copy the success of Wii? Flattering! Why don't they go back and copy the success of the PS2?

You know it's christmas soon when the console wars begin. ;)

If all you can see in the video shown above is the whole game it's an instant 1/10 (or lower). There are a few funny memes on the internet, but in this game it seems all random and annoying.

Yes, I will get Thomas Was Alone too. I like games with an interesting narrative and polished art styles.

Looks acceptable, better than expected. Very atmospheric.

However, 60 bucks is a stretch.. that's something I only pay for a few selected games like the new Smash or Legend of Zelda. I don't even have Mario 3D World because it's 60 bucks. I know what I can enjoy for 60 bucks and I know when it would make me feel ripped. I'm good at waiting for sales and supporting good indies in the meantime.

Curve Studios is such a great company. I haven't got The Swapper yet as I already got Bayonetta, Stealth Inc. 2, Costume Quest 2 and Tengami this month and need to save for Smash. But I'll get around that and Thomas Was Alone next month. Wish them success and a great holiday and hopefully more fantastic new Wii U games coming from them next year.

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

@MadAngryGamer Your excuses are just as amusing but let me help you.

The game is short because only 3 people worked on it, and they had to create all locations in real life, to learn how the pop-up origami-style folding technique works, then porting their handmade models to make it as realistic as possible, without the use of easy virtual fake-folding. It took them 2 years.

Yes, I wish it was longer than 2 and a half hours. The development team would have benefited if they hired some additional staff and made the game bigger. But they're just a small indie without those extra funds, and maybe they were a little bit too ambitious with their first game.

Anyway, in this game you need to appreciate the art of realistically folding landscapes. If you don't appreciate even an empty cave and rush through in 5 seconds, blind to the many hours of work that's been put into it, then this is not your game.

SKTTR commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

@DiscoGentlemen: NintendoLife' scoring system simply glitched out on that Spikey Walls review. On that we can all agree. Just as some games are criminally underrated, some others are criminally overrated. Happens!

Honestly, we know it doesn't matter which one is better because any game deserves more attention than these two. In the case of Spikey Walls and Flapp&Zegeta to me Zegeta is marginally more "exciting" (as in "for a minute"), it has a tiny bit more stuff going on, but it's also 5 times the cost. They ultimately both end up at the bottom of the Wii U shovelware barrel.

Renegade Kid doesn't seem to be a thing in Europe. At least on Wii U. I was interested in Mutant Mudds Deluxe, but it seems the developer doesn't want an audience here. Anything Wii U related from Renegade Kid changed from exciting to we'll probably never see it anyway.

Captain Toad out one month later in Europe? Hahah, that's funny, because.. if it was just a month then we could live with it. The real point is: we want Project Zero 5, Yakuza 1&2 HD, Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Games that don't get released here at all.

SKTTR commented on Former President Of Silicon Knights Announces ...:

I wish you haters would shut up and let the man develop the sequel to one of the finest horror games ever made.

There are actually people with taste in good horror, and Wii U doesn't have many good games in that genre:

  • Project Zero 5 is only out in Japan,
  • Master Reboot is not out in my region,
  • and then there's Lone Survivor and that's all the good ones.

Shadows of the Eternals is anticipated by psycho horror fans that want a deep and creepy story.
The Resident Evil's and ZombiU's just don't cut it anymore.

Where are the remakes? The VC versions?

The most recent creepy games that fit into the Halloween theme are be Lone Survivor - The Director's Cut and Master Reboot. Maybe even Stick it to the Man! Strange to see those new treats not on the list, it's mostly old tricks.

Too much good things to say about this puzzler. Especially the music and atmosphere, one of my all time favourites. This needs a HD remaster.

ROBOX was awesome! You either love or hate it. I love it. Great atmosphere, huge worlds, tough challenges, nice graphics and some unique gameplay details.

I'm undecided on Tetrobot. It's 9,99€ and from having only the trailer I really can't tell if it's good and fun.....
and there's Bayonetta 1&2 this week, Stealth Inc 2 next week, and The Swapper in two weeks.

SKTTR commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

So, they need to compress all data from the original 8.5 GB game into roughly 4 GB max (the other 4GB is for Wii U software update/save data.)
That means they must cut the game in half, or bring the textures down from hi-res to blurry-mess. Or maybe much framerame stuttering from in-game graphics decompressing? It's contraproductive to do extra work to make a worse version. Every Wii U owner interested in downloading games has their external hard drive hooked up.

And we want the best version of this game that it can be.

SKTTR commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (North America):

Man, those sales!
I hope you guys on the fence check out Squids Odyssey and Master Reboot now.
Squids Odyssey is very similar to Fire Emblem, and Master Reboot is a very atmospheric psycho adventure.

SKTTR commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Definately spread some words. 80% on this list gets my support.
Impact Winter, Warlocks, Ray's the Dead, Animal Gods, Aegis Defenders, man all of them look extremely good. Hope they come to Wii U. :)

Oh yeah I'm reading comments about people who only like 3D games and obviously it's only 2D games on this list, no need to bash em because good games are good games. Kinda sad you're sad for not enjoying good 2D games, only good 3D games. ;)
Hey have you tried some of the 3D indie titles yet? Master Reboot, KickBeat, How To Survive, Nano Assault NEO, Stick it to the Man, The Cave, Little Inferno, Trine 2, Giana Sisters, Art of Balance? Good 3D graphics take more time when you develop them from the ground up like a new small developer, that, or you have a bigger studio with some 3D graphic artists - in this case you'd rather find their games on retail, and most of their expertise is butchered into mediocre licensed games. ;)

SKTTR commented on Nintendo 64x64: Sin & Punishment:

This is a crazy non-stop action game, (climax action before Bayonetta), pretty much the one of the best railshooters out there, I prefer the Wii sequel though. Better controls.
My love for Treasure started on the N64 as well, but with Mischief Makers! That game was so charming and perfect gameplay-wise. I'm sure it'll be mentioned soon here. :)

SKTTR commented on The Studio Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Mig...:

I have all 6 Wonder Boy games on the Wii Virtual Console. Love that series so much since I first played Wonder Boy in Monster World on Wii.
I also liked the original Wonder Boy on the Master System and C64 very much back in the day.
I supported them and hoped for a revival, but now it's their demise. Very sad.

Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap has a special place in my gaming book. The game is probably the best game that was ever released on Sega's first home console. That music is one of the best 8-bit soundtracks ever. It's only 5 bucks (500 Wii Points) and freaking amazing. Also, if you liked Zelda II, then you really need to play this masterpiece too.

SKTTR commented on Actos Games Launches Tutorial Video Series To ...:

I like the mix of button and touch controls. Done right it enhances the aiming and adds to the moveset. Shouldn't be a problem if you're used to Metroid Prime Hunters or Trine 2 Director's Cut. They have the same control setup and are better than the versions that don't have it.

SKTTR commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Questionable Expo ...:

These Monster Hunter games are so huge and time consuming. One game per console is enough for me anyway. I got my moneys worth from the Wii version (120 hours of playtime), but the endless and repetitive grinding bored me after a while. Or did they change it so that the rare monster item drops are more common now?

And why not calling it Monster Hunter 4? Did I miss a game?
Why MH4 Ultimate?
"Because it's Capcom" is a valid answer you say?

The third MineCraft clone on Wii U? It's way too early to tell how good they will be, but at least there's gonna be a selection to choose from by 2015. Fortunately it's not too hard to make them better than the original, especially on Wii U.

I hoped Epona would stand around in certain missions waiting for the playable characters to ride her just like in Samurai Warriors 3. After beating Hyrule Warriors I was a little disappointed they haven't used the horse mechanics for at least for one level. However, Epona now announced as DLC, being a weapon, seems fresh and I'm a little excited. Looking forward to it.

SKTTR commented on Nintendo 64x64: F1 World Grand Prix:

It had a sequel (F1 World Grand Prix II) on the N64 that was even better. I see (not really) how this can get a 5/10 for todays standards, but back in the day it was a 9-10/10 just like Mario Kart 64, Wave Race 64, F-Zero X, Diddy Kong Racing, 1080º Snowboarding, Excitebike 64, Ridge Racer 64, wipEout 64, Beetle Adventure Racing, Star Wars Episode I Racer, and the other 10 or 20 high quality N64 racers I forgot.

The N64 was the best console of its time for racing games (and 3D platformers).
It took a few years and an analog stick for all the other consoles to catch up.

Also the reviewer doesn't remember that there was no F1 game with better background graphics than this one at the time of release.

SKTTR commented on You'll Definitely Want to Try Out Stealth Inc ...:

After Hydroventure which is in the Top 5 of my 170 WiiWare games I'm very excited about Curve Studios second Nintendo home console release.

@rjejr
A lie is something different. It was just a broken promise.
And it was explained in detail not just once. It made sense to leave it out of the Wii U version because it had to be done from the ground-up. This isn't an easily ported Unity-game after all. The Wii U isn't compatible with (and doesn't have the rights for) Microsoft Windows or Toki Tori 2's Windows-based level editor.
AND the game is still worth more than anyone has paid for.
Two Tribes even released 4 more amazing Wii U games for just 2 bucks because a minority of people were sad about the lack of a much too complicated level editor. How can you be so resentful?

3 of the Two Tribes games are in my Top 10 of the best Wii U eShop games, and the other 2 are in my Top 20.
I love that they're well-crafted and cleverly designed, pretty much like Nintendo's own games, with the benefit of being just a few bucks despite their high quality.
Can't wait for their first action game that is RIVE.

SKTTR commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon:

This game was so expensive when it was new. I bought it for 150DM (75€) plus a Controller Pak for 40DM (20€) and it was totally worth it. Great game, with an amazing atmosphere, a big action-adventure world for explorers who couldn't wait for Zelda Ocarina of Time (which was released almost 1 year later!), funny humour, and an all-time favourite soundtrack (3 songs with singing which was said to be impossible on a cartridge-based system in 1997/98) Pure whacky Japanese magic! Was very disappointed when they took out the voice-acted songs for the Western market in the sequel.
Still my favourite game in the Goemon-series.

4/10? You forgot the minus before the 4. ;)
Is this a real game?, because each and every free demo on Wii U has more value and gameplay and everything!
The review is doing injustice to many better games that received a 3/10 2/10 or 1/10 on this site. :D
The Letter looks like a diamond of a game compared to this.
I haven't played it, but watch a video on YouTube and skip this borefest.

It is a short and easy platformer. I think only 5 or 6 levels. First gen N64 graphics too. At least the gameplay was good. 6/10

Chameleon Twist 2 (also on N64) was better.

They should finish Twisted Dreams first! Patch it and bring the DLC, then we can talk about a sequel.

And if they do a sequel, I hope it's a sequel from the C64 or DS version. The Wii U version didn't feel much like a Giana Sisters game and was the worst of the trilogy.

SKTTR commented on Wii U Art Of Balance Release Date Confirmed Fo...:

Shin'en can expand their audience of course as long as they don't abandon Wii U.
I liked 3 of their WiiWare games and Nano Assault NEO and I'm buying their other Wii U games too.

But yeah, I understand your disappointment
@Nintendo-64: I too was disappointed that Jett Rocket II was 3DS only... because it started as a home console game, and was just one part of a bigger story. Don't like it when series jump from home system to handheld without giving the home console players and fans of the first game a home console port. But if they think that's where the money is and if that's what they need to survive, then let them go.

I'm happy as long as they still make great Wii U games, and Art of Balance and FAST Racing were already great back on Wii.
