SKTTR commented on Community Interview: Give Us Your Affordable S...:

My question: Is Nifflas doing the soundtrack? If so, I'm on it day 1. How many tracks are in there, how many hours of music?

Knytt Underground had an amazing 3 hour soundtrack. One of the best on Wii U, or should I say in game history? Up there with my other favourite soundtracks EarthBound, Chrono Trigger, Tetrisphere, World of Goo, and the DKCs. Also, 8.99€ for that 20+ hour game was such a bargain, so I'm more than happy to spend a bit more on his new Wii U game.

That argument about the game's price is funny though. Cheapskates. Probably mobile phone players. No respect for quality exclusives that use Wii U proper.



SKTTR commented on Review: Elliot Quest (Wii U eShop):

I grew up with 8 bit games, so I have a soft spot for these kind of graphics and music.

But I don´t like many of the old games. Due to their lack of save points many are too difficult and frustrating. The other thing is, there are no hardware or file size limitations in a modern "pixelgame". Anything is possible and much more surprising.

I also prefer modern 8-bit games over new Virtual Console releases. I love to play retro-looking games on Wii U and find them more appealing than original NES/Atari games nowadays. And I played hundreds.



SKTTR commented on Gunman Clive 2 Developer Talks About a Possibl...:

I prefer HD home console versions instead of 3D portables. So yes, any good 3DS game that gets a polished Wii U port is gonna get my support.

I´d love to see both games combined for a more fitting (bigger) home console experience though.



SKTTR commented on Underground Is Coming Stateside Next Week, And...:

I completed Underground 100% and found it quite enjoyable! It´s a very atmospheric and original puzzle game / construction adventure mix.
One of the few good and unique Wii U exclusives. Now that a few months have passed (since the EU release) I´m ready for a sequel.

Wish Grendel Games success!
It´s crazy how this relatively small indie team achieved to make their own hardware. Respect for that! Probably one of the biggest curiosities and the most risk-taking game to ever hit the Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Elliot Quest Patch Adds Several Additional Con...:

The Wii U GamePad is the best controller Nintendo made so far. The perfect size, feels as it was made for my hands, or for normal hands in general instead of kids hands. Obviously don't need to mention the other unique, practical and comfortable features.
I don't like playing 3DS and Xbox One because their controllers give me cramps. I wish I could use the Wii U GamePad for my 3DS and Xbox One. I bought a 3DS XL but it's still too small. The games are great but the controls aren't fun. I skip the New 3DS and hope the next Nintendo console is a hybrid: a Wii U that can also play 3DS games.

Anyway, since Wii U can be played with a bunch of different Nintendo controllers it's always nice to see when a developer puts all options in.
I can't wait for Elliot Quest to release in Europe next month.



SKTTR commented on Kaio: King of Pirates, by Keiji Inafune's Comc...:

They got $4 million dollars on kickstarter for Mighty No. 9 minus $3.8 million dollars for the losses on Marvelous' Kaio.

That's still $200.000 left for MN9 and that translates to: 10 people with a monthly paycheck of $1600 working for 12 months on the game. Still a fair amount of money and time for a medium sized indie team, wouldn't you think?



SKTTR commented on Gallery: The Natives Are Most Definitely Hosti...:

Nothing against a clone.
1. There should be good clones of good games that aren't available on the system.
2. There should be good clones of good games that can't get on the system because of legal reasons.

And since there's not a MineCraft clone on Wii U I'm all for it.

I don't know how close this is to MineCraft (as I don't know every MineCraft pixel by heart), but it's concerning, so please don't rip off the graphics straight and try to do your own thing, or your game gets pulled and no one is happy.



SKTTR commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

At least it did appeal to me, a longtime puzzle adventure core gamer. With 25 years of experience in this genre is was blown away by Toki Tori 2's ingenious puzzles, outstanding design and wonderful audiovisuals. I paid 13,49€ on launch date and thought it was worth much more than that.

One of the indie highlights on Wii U and my number 1 favourite Wii U eShop game of 2013. After this I went to buy everything Two Tribes had to offer, and while all of their games are great, I still think Toki Tori 2 is much better than everything else they produced so far.

As for RIVE, I'm excited to see if they can pull off an action game as (so far) their strength is in quality puzzlers.



SKTTR commented on The Man Behind Fluidity And Stealth Inc Discus...:

Wii U has the TOP3 'Best Shooters of 2015' in their pipeline:
1. Splatoon
2. Starfox U
3. Devil's Third
(Didn't count Metroid Prime Trilogy which was already released this year).

There are Nintendo fans that like shooters, but they need to have pure gameplay, like the ones above. Wii U fans don't really want those scripted hellzones that feel like 50% movie and 50% game.



SKTTR commented on Life of Pixel Developer Highlights Sales Figur...:

Oh, I'd get it for nostalgia. Love how they nailed the oldschool graphics.
A nice throwback to classic systems. It doesn't seem to be much more than that though. If it's around the price of a SNES game (7.99) retro platformer fans like me certainly pick this up (on Wii U).



SKTTR commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

Wii U has 3 Warriors games already. There's really no need for more.
1. Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
2. Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2
3. Hyrule Warriors
and if you want you can also play the Wii games
4. Samurai Warriors 3
5. Samurai Warriors Katana

I have more than enough Warriors games. Hyrule Warriors alone will keep me occupied for the rest of 2015 and when I finally complete it I'll need a long Warriors vacation, especially with Xeno and Zelda on the horizon.

If Tecmo Koei could stop this Warriors overflow and bring Project Zero 5 and Romance of the Three Kingdoms U over to the west, that would be more interesting.



SKTTR commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

Since there was a Shovel Knight cameo in Armillo, I always wondered why there wasn't an Armillo cameo in Shovel Knight...

Looking forward to Plague Knight and multiplayer content.

Battletoads and Kratos? Seems random. Is this an extra level or something?

If the Nintendo version gets a cameo, Link from Zelda II or Meta Knight sound alright, but I guess it's not easy to license those characters.
Anyway I'm not suggesting or wishing for anything, wanna be surprised and see what they come up with.



SKTTR commented on Euro Release Of BLOK DROP X Twisted Fusion Sel...:

First day sales?
Well, it was released alongside 5 other eShop games in NA,
and alongside 1 other eShop game in EU.
Launch day sales are generally better when not much else is released on that day.
Also, Europeans love puzzle games.

I think UK sales are better because people in UK know BLOK DROP U.
Germany doesn't have access to BLOK DROP U so BLOK DROP X is new/unknown to them.



SKTTR commented on Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power Announced for ...:

Trine 2 - Director's Cut is the number 1 indie megaseller on Wii U in almost all regions, and the reasons are probably really nice detailed HD graphics and a beautiful presentation and introduction that seems to lead into an immersive world, unique gameplay, co-op 3-player local and online, voicechat, all original content + all DLC content in one package, and everything expected like off-tv-play and no bugs. It helped that it was a launch game and has a good demo too, so I wonder what happened to Trine - Enchanted Edition for Wii U.

However, Trine 3 looks like a different beast. Much more exciting.

My main issue (a minor one) with Trine 2 was that stages were too long, lasting around 20mins each. And a deep forest wasn't just one relatively long stage. It was a series of several relatively long forest stages. I personally prefer shorter stages (then it's easier to take breaks when playing with friends and more comfortable when you missed items/collectibles). That, or a map.



SKTTR commented on Review: Pac-Attack (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

Good you pointed that out. If you want Pac-Attack with 2-player mode on Wii U you need this SNES version because unfortunately all GBA games on Virtual Console don't have their original multiplayer link feature.

But if you don't care about multiplayer, just get the GBA Pac-Man Collection where you get this and three other games for less money.



SKTTR commented on Scram Kitty Developer Praises the Wii U and Me...:

Scram Kitty is pure action skillz, for gamers not for players.
I wasn't into the silly cat theme, but the spot on controls+physics and the fresh challenging fast on-rails action were totally doing it for me.

Can see the similarities between this and a Treasure action gem. They really nailed that uncompromised 16bit arcade shooter feeling.

Obviously Dakko Dakko's next game has a reserved space on my Wii U menu.



SKTTR commented on Former Rare Developers Will Show Off Their New...:

A spiritual BK successor would be a great start for them to show off and I certainly have my ekambokam ready for a fun modern retro-inspired 3D platforming collectathon. But secretly, I can't wait for their spiritual Jet Force Gemini and Blast Corps successors. ;)



SKTTR commented on Clive 'N' Wrench Aims to Bring Back Those Rare...:

i can live with N64 graphics as long as the game is good.

More of this potentially good "at-least-we-try" kind,
and less of the flappy "coded-on-a-weekend" kind.

Just hope it doesn't rip off Banjo-Kazooie beyond having a main character duo and being a 3D platformer. If this has absolutely no original ideas that's way worse than unappealing main characters or blocky graphics.



SKTTR commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

I vote Donkey Kong 64 because Nintendo probably has to change it anyway to rerelease it. They probably need to edit out some stuff like the Jet-Pac arcade game, and the Expansion Pak issue, which are two of the reasons a Virtual Console release is impossible.

If Diddy Kong Racing isn't counted because of a DS version, then Super Mario 64 should not be counted as well, as there's Super Mario 64 DS.

I'd like to see sequels of SM64, Pokémon Snap, F-Zero, 1080, and S&P, but on Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Several Design Choices in...:

Link transforming into a wolf in front of a crowd and the crowd not realising it is Link. I explain that one with Midna's shadow magic. The crowd/normal people don't see Link transforming, they just see the wolf suddenly appearing out of nowhere, as if the seconds before never happened.



SKTTR commented on Indie Title Bizerta: Silent Evil is Stalking i...:

Flashlight horror adventure from Germany on Wii U eShop? Wollen wir!

Could be a great addition to the library of indie horror on Wii U, next to Master Reboot, Lone Survivor - The Director's Cut, and How To Survive.



SKTTR commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

@RaphaBoss Wasn't complaining. Just referencing posts above and joking because some people think 20 bucks is too much for a pretty good, relatively new game that's 40-50 bucks anywhere else. I guess Nintendo should have added HD to its title and sell it for 59,99 and everyone would be happy.



SKTTR commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

Fire Iwata and let him take his games Kirby, Smash, and EarthBound with him! That's what real fans want!

But really, can they please stop Wii and focus on bringing more new games? Like Rainbow Curse in Europe!
Drop the Wii support already. Everyone has a Wii, the games are all available. We could have already bought them all. In fact most of us have those games already and can play them on Wii and Wii U! No need to waste time making extra download versions. So please stop it. I'm very disappointed I paid 50 bucks for Kirby's Adventure Wii and 50 bucks for Super Mario Galaxy 2 just 3 years ago, and you can get them for 20 or 10 now on Wii U???
Same for Metroid Trilogy. Paid 150 bucks for the games, and now fans can have it for only 10?? Sucks!!

SKTTR commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

The first Kirby Paintbrush game on DS was difficult and kinda frustrating at times. It still got very high scores (9/10's everywhere) for being fresh and innovative and a good challenge.

This however, being a tad easier, and having a 5-player mode, and looking miles better, is certainly more fun.



SKTTR commented on The Nintendo Game Plan - How the NES Slowly Wo...:

Nintendo could remember and learn from their NES launch.

This NES poster has a colorful mix of games for everyone.
Mario games, all the most popular Sports genres, Zapper Shooters, Puzzlers, Racing, Pinball, Adventures, Gimmicky Robot hardware games. If they could only launch with such a diverse quality line up nowadays.

This kind of advertising still works today.
Wii U had a slow start but now it has all the different important genres covered. Make a modern poster showing off the diversity Wii U has now! Include the best of 3rd parties and eShop too and a reminder that all the 1000+ Wii, WiiWare, and VC games work on Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Reaction: Pokémon Shuffle Isn't Quite Microtr...:

Those investors are evil. Nintendo should buy themselves out of them.
If I was a Pokémon fan I'd bury my Pikachu today.

Very frightening to see this becoming a thing in future Animal Crossing, Smash, Zelda or Mario Kart games.



SKTTR commented on Review: Rock 'N Racing Off Road (Wii U eShop):

In 5 player mode this is decent fun, as the physics are pretty good, and no cheating and buggy CPU players interfere.
But single player modes are underwhelming and don't even come close to the content and charm of the 20 year old classic and ultimate reference Ironman's Super Off-Road.



SKTTR commented on Humphrey, of SPIKEY WALLS Fame, to be a Guest ...:

Looks like some simple fun arcadey one-screen multiplayer jump&run.
Is it co-op like Bubble Bobble or versus like Mario Bros.?

Don't mind the cameo. But it sure is unexpected.
Here's a list of indie cameo characters people like:
CommanderVideo (from BIT.TRIP RUNNER)
Shovel Knight
The Clone (from Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones)
Toki Tori
Juan Aguacate (from Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition)
Scram Kitty and/or his Buddy on Rails
Ray (from Stick It To The Man!)
Sugar Plumps (from Little Inferno)
Mi (from Knytt Underground)
Lemeza Kosugi (from La-Mulana)
The Player (from Retro City Rampage)
Quote (from Cave Story)
Patricia Wagon (from Mighty Switch Force!)
The Boy (from Teslagrad)
Shantae (from Shantae and the Pirate's Curse)
The Poet (from Tengami)
The Swapper
Rusty (from SteamWorld Dig)
The Vice President (from Citizens of Earth)
Daniel (from UnEpic)

Edit: Huh weird format glitch.



SKTTR commented on Review: Puzzle Monkeys (Wii U eShop):

Really put off by its cheap visuals. Fortunately the price point prevents harsher crticism.

Yes, gameplay is most important, but... It's like a lady.
If you don't like how she looks you don't want to... go to dinner with her.....
except when you're starving.



SKTTR commented on Yusuke Hashimoto Outlines His Desire to Contin...:

I'm in the final chapters of the first Bayonetta (20+ hours in, playing on Normal difficulty). And when it's done I'm going straight into Bayo 2.

I love this game, the combat is nice and the graphics are sweet, but I'm playing for the story. Yes, I like the story and for me it's the strongest point of the game.

However, halo farming (to buy all the things) is kinda annoying and time consuming, but maybe I'm missing something. Help?



SKTTR commented on Review: Tri-Strip (Wii U eShop):

It's a 1.99 game and the core gameplay seems good.
I don't mind the art style. I rather like it.
And I love a good puzzle game.

But no highscore saving really hurts games like this one.
The developer should consider adding that feature in an update.
Then I'd like to get this (if it ever gets released in EU.)



SKTTR commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

The emphasis is on "seamless",
seamless transitions between areas (like the overworld of Wind Waker).

My favourite part is you stay immersed: There won't be hardware limitations/distractions like loading screens that pull you out of the game world.



SKTTR commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Gives an Update on Devil’s ...:

I'm not totally sold, but "content for 2 games" is always a good deal.
And that it's an underrepresented genre on our Wii U made by a prominent quality developer.

I can see myself picking this up, the character designs are badass. I only need confirmation that the gameplay is badass too.



SKTTR commented on 3DS Flashcard Users Playing ROMs Online Report...:

You stinky filthx pirates. Those developers got a job to do and a life to feed, just like the hundred thousand breeding and cutting swine for you.

Get faced with it & Pay for it!

Edit: No, I'm not that bad. In reality I think everything should be free for everyone. And everything created should be accessible for the ones interested, just because it was created. but as long as we live in this prehisoric monetary system we have to pay if we want to support. And anything we pay for is a support for them blooming in the industry.



SKTTR commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

As long as people understand a 5/10 as just an average game coming from a subjective opinion (we're all just humans) and not dismiss it as total shovelware a 10-point system is easy to understand. You can have fun with an average game! Some people seem to forget the scale goes down to 3/20, 2/10 and 1/10 for really boring, short games, or cashgrabs, or trash.

In the first place reviews are written to inform people if their choice is good for them, not to rank games against each other.
