I assumed it was for 3ds as well. I thought it would have made more sense, but who knows maybe there are a lot of game play mechanics that can be utilized better with the wii u. Time will tell.

Looks good, the artist has the potential to develop their own style in the near future.

this looks good, love the atmosphere
Spectator commented on Review: Strike Force Foxx (3DS eShop):
@TantXLYour right they were both also on the genesis. I'm a pretty hardcore sega guy and those were some of the games I played back in the day, when EA wasn't horrible.
Jungle Strike was pretty awesome
@SetupDiskAre you thinking about Desert Strike?
Nice to see a decent little old school choplifter game on the handheld. I'm a sucker for arcade style games.

Spectator commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:
@Action51I agree with your statement and where the current industry is at. I believe that the exposure and the demand for indie games has risen and continues to rise.I don't believe the impact of small developers is a fad on the industry. I just believe that small companies have been making an impact through out the lifetime of the game industry, there are just more small game companies now. My impression is that small companies are now getting more exposure because of technology, access to a wider audience to market their product, a changing consumer base, and a bloated mainstream game industry that has become less innovated over the pass 10 yrs when it comes to original IPs.
You are also right there is no way that companies can maintain themselves based on the million dollar budgets they put into games, and if they do they usually go the safe route because they know the consumer may not buy the new IP unless its a sequel to something already established unfortunately. The reality, like you said is that the game industry has turned into the movie industry and it is contracting on itself, at the rate there might only be small companies or at least medium sized companies that could be considered stable. Watching companies like Bizarre Creations, HudsonSoft, Radical Entertainment, and so on go bye bye makes me wonder if all the future next gen games will come from just a hand full of companies. It'll be interesting in the coming years what game companies we'll be talking about.
The word indie is a nice fad, the reality is that its just a hip word like casual and hardcore. Small independent games from small companies have been around forever,that won't change. Who knows how long the label indie will be used for small independent companies; that won't stop those companies from making games whether they are labeled or not. I'm sure the game industry will come up with a new word to replace or spawn off the word indie once they get bored... just wait.
Spectator commented on Renegade Kid Confirms a Console Game Kickstart...:
This is either milking, or Renegade Kid isn't generating enough money to support their current staff.
Spectator commented on Koji Igarashi, Best Known for the Castlevania ...:
Yikes, at this rate the only games that will be available from Konamiwill be MGS remakes.
Spectator commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:
Interesting topic, but this subject matter won't be resolved anytime soon unless consumers stop buying, and that probably won't happen anytime soon.
Spectator commented on Review: Vacation Adventures: Park Ranger (3DS ...:
The developer probably priced it at this point so they can put it on sale later. Get the initial money now and then increase visibility on sale day after a couple months. Its nice to see that the game got a decent score, its hard to get a high rating in this saturated genre. Unfortunately there are just too many hidden object games at a lower price for this to compete. I hope it sells based on the hard work the developers put into it.
Spectator commented on Adventure Thru 8-Bit Land is Another Wii U eSh...:
@gamecrazy94 Interesting concept, good luck with your game.
Spectator commented on AE Games Reveals Mad Men Football, High Impact...:
Hope it works out
Spectator commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:
I thought it was a good direct. The only thing I wish was that they had games for next year, or at least some third party we don't already know, because the Wii U looks pretty barren after these games come out this year. I guess they are saving what they have for E3
Spectator commented on Brand New Game Developer, AE Games, Shows Its ...:
Guess will find out Friday

It is very hard to get a games into Europe, very hard, to many hoops to jump through.
Spectator commented on Pac-Man Museum Reportedly Cancelled on Nintend...:
I'm surprised they canceled the 3ds version, that would have sold well on the eshop.
Spectator commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:
Controller is only as good as the games that use it. Right now...... not many games use it yet. Nintendo better get plan B warmed up if they can't convince third party companies to maximize the gamepad. There should be no excuses left this year.
