SKTTR commented on Cypronia to Offer Future Release for Free as C...:

I knew the first dev with a decent Minecraft clone would hit a gold mine on Wii U. It's Cypronia's best Wii U game yet (Color Zen was pretty good as well).
I hope for Gyro controls and some smaller bug fixes in the update.

It's very generous to make their next game free for Cube Life buyers, as it was a bargain to begin with.



SKTTR commented on Pokémon Shuffle is Heading to Android and iOS...:

Still playing the 3DS version.

I don't mind 1:1 ports to a smartphone. as long as the same game is available in the best quality on one of Nintendo's consoles, because that's where I want to play them.

So in order for Nintendo to not disappoint their fans, they should always have a perfect version of their smartphone games available for WiiU and/or 3DS.



SKTTR commented on Terraria Rating for North America Brings Its W...:

2D sandbox freedom, with charming graphics and tons of content is very appealing to me. I never played this but will get it on WiiU day one. If it keeps the online and offline multiplayer intact we have another indie highlight on WiiU.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

As long as you talk about games in a constructive manner there's nothing to worry about in Miiverse. Don't get entangled in personal things, never judge (even though you might be right), and don't write or draw like a caveman (trolling), and everything will be fine.
There are other platforms for your daily nonsense.

@ikki5 & BooJoh: Hahahah, nice! :)



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I have no problems on Miiverse other than using the word "after".
As I'm from Germany I'm not allowed to write this word until I change it into "aftr" or something else.

"After" isn't even a swear word in Germany. It's used by doctors to describe a peculiar part of the body. It's totally uncommon. Gets annoying to change my posts most of the time because of this...



SKTTR commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

I spend more money on Wii U eShop games than Nintendo's first party releases (I like more gameplay and less amiibo), so I'm not part of the problem.

My collection:
25 Wii U retail games (15 from Nintendo / 10 from 3rd Parties)
102 Wii U eShop games
(14 made or published by Nintendo,
7 made or published by 3rd parties like Sega, Capcom, and Ubisoft,
and the rest are indie games. 81 indie games. 81 INDIE GAMES you hear that?)

Oh, and 43 Virtual Console games - 28 from Nintendo and 15 from mostly Capcom.



SKTTR commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

Of course E3 was disappointing if you want to be smashed with new huge releases every damn year.

Epic must-have titles such as Zelda, Xenoblade, Mario Maker, and SMT X Fire Emblem take hundreds of people several years to develop. People tend to forget that! Kids nowadays think it's only clicking fingers and the magic is done. You all should get a lesson in game development.



SKTTR commented on Exclusive: Get Revved Up With the First FAST R...:

Der Trailer ist fett, Manfred!

I mean, the trailer looks damn hot. And I dig the music!
And obviously we don't really need to talk about the graphics, but this looks like the best thing Shin'en has ever done!

I'm sold, I'm sure it will be much better than the first one.

And to the one worrying about memory: Shin'en are code wizards. This looks like a 8GB game, but it will probably be only 300MB or so. ;)



SKTTR commented on The First Mother Game Is Finally Coming To The...:

My heart stopped the entire minute I read the first lines of this news until the time I realised it's not on the eShop yet! Now that I calmed down I cannot sleep until I see this game on my Wii U. EarthBound Beginnings. What a nice ring to it :) Nintendo won the E3! Now, must go check the eShop again....
will be updated tonight, right?



SKTTR commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'm skipping the handheld versions (and handheld games in general), because you know.... smaller screens, worse graphics, handcramp controls....
but I always have the moneys ready for Animal Crossing on a home console,
so if they don't release or at least announce Animal Crossing U this year I (and many others) will be disappointed.

That Animal Crossing app on Wii U was such a tease!

Also, I don't care about NX until 2018.



SKTTR commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Tweeting Some C...:

He's named himself everythingamiibo man, cut him some slack.

As for Project Dream, that's what turned into Banjo-Kazooie. At least that's what I got from 1997 magazines. There might be unseen N64 footage, but I doubt there was ever a line of code for the SNES. I mean, after DKC3 they actually had Killer Instinct Gold, Blast Corps, and probably Diddy Kong Racing and GoldenEye ready, before they even talked about Project Dream, and they were all on the N64.



SKTTR commented on Video: Fan-Made Mother 4 Gets Shown Off In 'At...:

From the looks of that trailer it doesn't seem to have any graphics or music from the other 3 Mother games.
Yes, the style is very similar, but that's it.

They should change the name and any copyrighted assets (if there are any), and put it on the eShop.



SKTTR commented on Cool It, Conspiracy Theorists - Sakurai Didn't...:

I think Smash4U is probably the most balanced fighter out there.
Not even Street Fighter or Tekken come close.

However, I still can't get my head around Palutena. She's one fighter I struggle with, but frankly I didn't use her much. I quickly dismissed her as a slow moving character because I prefer the faster ones. A personal thing.



SKTTR commented on ​Tomonobu Itagaki's Devil's Third Will Lay W...:

I want demon banning tattoos all over my body too.
This seems to be the Wii U online shooter for the big guys and girls! Good to have that covered, Nintendo.
I'm not sure if I buy it day one... but I think I have to, just to not lag behind others that play online.



SKTTR commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

I was under the impression that amiibos don't sell well, at least in Europe, or rather Germany.

Normal price is 12,99€ here, but big retailers like MediaMarkt already selling them out to make space for other stuff.
I picked up 6 amiibos there: Samus, Luigi, Pikachu, Peach, Fox, and Diddy Kong for 40€ instead of 78€.



SKTTR commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

A quick look on the realtime map and you instantly know what's going on with all the colors flying and players moving around.

The problem is not having no voice chat in Splatoon. The problem are all the other shooters that don't provide a second screen with a realtime map.

Honestly, voice chat in Splatoon would destroy the innovative strategies you develop for some of the secondary/special "weapons". Voice chat would make a few weapon sets (like the one with the tracker) redundant. No thanks!



SKTTR commented on Harvest Moon: Seeds of Memories Heading to Wii...:

I have three Harvest Moon games on Wii if you don't count the SNES original on VC and Rune Factory Frontier.

Magical Melody - The first Wii Harvest Moon and the best of the bunch. Unfortunately it's just the Gamecube version but without the ability to play as a female character.

Tree of Tranquility - A real letdown. Graphics, audio, loading times, long walks, loading times, no widescreen, and lots of loading times and long walks. Probably the worst HM game ever.

Animal Parade - Basically the same slow frustrating engine that Tree of Tranquility runs on. Couldn't get around playing much of it, but looks a bit better than Tree of Tranquility.

It's sad to see all Wii Harvest Moon games being either gimped or running on a slow bad-aged engine. I liked Harvest Moon on SNES and N64 best. No long ways, no long loading times, no frustrating controls, no bad 3D graphics... Hope they go back to that 16/64bit style.



SKTTR commented on Chibi-Robo Platformer and amiibo Coming to Jap...:

Chibi-Robo games should come to Europe! And to Wii U!
I loved the first two games. I bought the Gamecube version when it was new (it was one of the late gems on the system, and a new Nintendo IP, and Miyamoto worked on it!) and the US import of Park Patrol for the DS.
Chibi-Robo would make a great addition to the Smash roster, next to the Inkling, Bayonetta, and Krystal&Tricky.



SKTTR commented on Cube Life: Island Survival Hits the NA Wii U e...:

The trailer showed good visuals, responsive controls, action, and lots of content, and the launch sale price is great.
Will it be a fun Minecraft substitute for the price? From what I've seen, yes.
Nice to see it coming next week! Hope it turns out well!



SKTTR commented on Review: Stone Shire (Wii U eShop):

Cypronia made a good Wii U game before, Color Zen, and Cube Life: Survival Island looks promising and could be their next hit.

Stone Shire however (only watched a 15min gameplay video) looks basic in comparison. There wasn't even water and that's kinda disappointing. I know they wanna update it, and I hope they do with water and their own fresh and fun ideas. And for the confusion about the 3/10.. this is a review of version 1.0 and not of something of the future.



SKTTR commented on Talking Point: Retro Gamers Beware, PAC-MAN 25...:

I guess the ones having a hard time with their hands-eye coordination are non-gamers. People that avoid anything with gameplay that's beyond 4bit or involving more than one button. But they can eventually level up to being videogame beginners and then to be casual gamers.
In this video it seems one of those nongamers finds another mobile game simple enough to play and present to the smartphone-using nongamer-massmarket.
Last time it was a simplified version of a dodge the walls game from 1960, and now it's an endless version of good old Frogger!

There's always a massmarket for simplistic throwaway games. Because a baby and her grandma are smart enough to understand the basic gameplay.



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

Some people are going to like this game more than others. I showed this game around and I saw how many different opinions people have on this game.

Some dismiss it entirely, and some others play on and on and buy it for their own Wii U. I wasn't very impressed by the easy 4 hour story mode, but the unlockable void mode (harder game) saved it for me. That's where the game starts to shine with unique and challenging ideas for puzzles and action.

Also on the positive side: the atmosphere that gets across well thanks to great music , sound effects, and 16-bit graphic effects and animation.
Negative: there is a lack of final polish to the technical quality, and man I didn't understand what the story is all about.



SKTTR commented on Exclusive: eShop Publishers Are Dropping Relea...:

Hope Nintendo goes up the Steam or Apple route. No barriers. No censorship. All games in all territories. No extra cost for developers, publishers and consumers.

Germany missed out on a few minor WiiWare games in the past, but on Wii U it's more than 10 games already, great ones such as Master Reboot and Ittle Dew included! :(



SKTTR commented on UCraft is a Wii U Exclusive Once Again:

Let indies create more creative freedom games, Or has everything to be a platformer? We don't have anything similar to Minecraft, so all those clones are still very welcome and hopefully good.



SKTTR commented on Feature: A Fit-To-Burst History Of Kirby Games:

Kirby's Fun Pak was my favourite for the longest time. For me it was up there with the SNES' greatest platformers (the Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country games), but now my favourite is a tie between Kirby's Epic Yarn and Kirby's Adventure Wii. The Wii really had the best options for Kirby games, even considering the disappointment that Kirby's Dream Collection wasn't released over here in Europe. I also love Kirby's Block Ball, the best Blockbreaker/Arkanoid clone ever.

3 Kirby games I missed and would love to try are Star Stacker (with the SNES version for Wii U VC as my prefered option, lucky Japan has got it on Wii VC), Tilt'n Tumble, and Mass Attack.

I just downloaded Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (both GBA VC) for Wii U, and I'm eager to get the brandnew Kirby game for Wii U when it's released this Thursday.

And for Kirby being so easy... KDL2's final boss is mega brutal (back in the day I wanted to throw that game away because of it), KDL3 wasn't easy at all with some puzzles and later stages. And huge respect to everyone who was able to complete Air Ride 100%!

PS. That video of Tilt'n Tumble running on Gamecube nearly blew my mind! :D



SKTTR commented on First Impressions: Tapping In With amiibo Tap:...:

I have all of the 30 games on Wii VC and/or Wii U VC, so it's useless to me.

I also think it would have been a better idea if each amiibo was tied to a certain game and not a random one..
Of course, well-known characters would be obvious:
Mario to Super Mario Bros.
Peach to Super Mario Bros. 2
Luigi to Super Mario Bros. 3
Bowser to Super Mario World
Yoshi to Mario&Yoshi

But then there are the ones with the potential to make this hyper exciting:
Marth amiibo gives you access to a translated Famicom Fire Emblem demo!
Ike amiibo to introduce a Gamecube demo of Path of Radiance!
Mr. Game & Watch amiibo to a HD series of G&W games!
I see potential wasted, but hey it's free, so at least it can be forgettable and forgiven.
