TTGlider commented on Review: psyscrolr (Wii U eShop):

To put it simply, yes, it is poor form to move between the singular first person in one paragraph and a collective pronoun in the next. It's weird. We get the 'we' bit, that wasn't the point'. The point was mixing 'I' and 'we', and it was a correct and useful one.

Wow, good sale on Tetrobot. I loved it at full price. Nice Wii U adapation too with the Wiimote pointing or screen touching. I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone that enjoys puzzles, especially the classic box moving kind.

Check Angry Joe Show's youtube channel. He just had a friendly play video of Mario Party 10 pulled by copyright claim from Nintendo. It's time for NL to followup on this issue of Nintendo's aggressive copyright claim practices. This is sleazy.

To Nintendo Life, next time you write an article about tweets, would you mind including, by quote or screenshot, said tweets? They are nowhere to be found in this article, and it appears the insane RCMADIAX has altered his twitter.

TTGlider commented on Review: Dot Arcade (Wii U eShop):

My take on the font of the score (this font is also used when you hold plus or minus to break out of a game and return to the main menu) is it's going for a "debug menu" type feel, intentionally breaking the "fourth wall". If not, then yes, they should have maid a stacked filament type font or something.

Sweet mother mary I'm excited for this one. Alreayd have it preordered on Amazon. Considering a second Gamestop preorder to keep one sealed. I don't have 3DS so I'll get it on WiiU(plus Wii). THANK YOU to the companies still making and bringing over physical boxed goods from Japan

Just bought Dot Arcade and played for 20 minutes. Not bad. Kinda cool. Could use a couple more modes as a free update. I could see a dollar per mode considering the overhead and small market. I like the way the games use the brightness of the dat in addition to color. Also never played a snake with falling environmental collisions or wrap around.

TTGlider commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (Wii U ...:

I'd probably go 8 for this. The item selection on the gamepad is awkward to hit during boss fights, and for the premium price, the reused pixel art is a little disappointing. And I think there were one too many blind jumps to be comfortable with a 9. Plus, there is some backtracking, and with the way enemies respawn, it's a little tedious. But it's still really good overall, and has great music.

TTGlider commented on Year in Development: Nyamyam:

It was alright. Needed harder puzzles, Wiimote pointer "point and click" style controls (big time needed that) and maybe twice the length.

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

I debated on the price but finally just bought this. It needs Wii Pointer controls for two glaring reasons. 1) the art is nice and I'd rather play on my TV than the WiiU's pad. 2) the pointer controls navigate faster and more naturally for me than tapping the pad. I'll wait a little while for the second half of the campaign to allow for the potential update.

TTGlider commented on Review: Tetrobot & Co (Wii U eShop):

I just bought this and played through the first world. I'm loving it. It taps into the simple but satisfying vibe of the Toki Tori remake back on WiiWare. And the control works awesome with the Wiimote since it seems it was designed around a mouse and a left click. And its polish is on the high end by eshop standards.

TTGlider commented on Developer of Retro City Rampage Explains, Agai...:

I bought it for WiiWare, beat it, downloaded the DX update (AWESOME of him to do), played some of the update. Yup, I love this game. I don't mind too much that it's not coming to WiiU because the graphics wouldn't really be much different in 720p and I probably wouldn't launch it too much since I thoroughly beat it on Wii. If anything, I'd like Nintendo to upgrade the Wii Mode to launch in to specific Wii Channels or the Wii Disc, rather than just booting the Wii menu.

TTGlider commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Just beat it with about 40 hours logged and only a handful of sidemissions done so far. This is one AWESOME game. The gamepad map was useful but for long sessions I find the pro controller more comfortable. There are a number of aspects in WD that I think are better than GTA 5, for example in the density of interactive objects, and the variety of side missions / mini games. And the entire final mission and epilogue explores the "main character is a madman seeking justice that ends up on a killing rampage" supposed "paradox" that many reviews harp on. In fact the game presents a way for the player to "reconcile" that with a sort of demonstration of character growth in the final minutes of the game. Any other hardcore Nintendo fan that isn't going to get an Xbone or PS4 soon should by WD for their WiiU and experience this fun techy pulp adventure. And the online modes are really, really intense (when both parties are in the spirit of it, which has been the case in my sessions (over 50 so far) more often than not)

TTGlider commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Totally off base score, penalizing the game by comparing it to release dates and frame rates on other platforms that the reader may not even have. Don't you already have Digital Foundry to take care of the multi platform comparisons? In isolation of other platforms, this is easily an 8. Considering the dearth of similar games as this on the WiiU, I think a 9 wouldn't be shocking.

TTGlider commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Wii U Compare To Th...:

I've read the DF comparison article from yesterday/today. As usual, IMHO, they give far too little weight to the Wii U version having zero screen tearing, while the other versions tear constantly. Yes, I can feel that the frame rate is a big juddery when I play WD on the WiiU, but I must say that from a gameplay stance, the difference is far less important in this game than in AC 4, for example. And I don't get why the author of the DF piece spent time drawing so many comparisons between the U edition and the PS4. OF COURSE the PS4 trounces the U.

TTGlider commented on Watch Dogs:

I am absolutely loving this game on Wii U. The map is useful for clearing out the collectibles and it supports tapping to set waypoints and fast travel points. And the framerate feels better to me than Black Flag on Wii U did. I'm glad I kept my preorder for this. Really cool game, Ubi!

TTGlider commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

I watched the video without audio, but it looked like he was trying to glitch through the wall. And the framerate only takes a hit in two player, supposedly? Well, I'm having fun in Hyrule Warriors two player, so this is little different. What I'm more concerned about in the video is the fairly bland environment within the levels. But I'll probably still get the game this week. I really like platforming.

Dear editors: I always want to know what's happening on the gamepad. Especially for multiplatform games, how (and if) the gamepad/second screen is use is a critical deciding factor for me. This review has no such information.

TTGlider commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

What I'd love: better framerate than PS360, gamepad based mini games plus an interactive map while also supporting off screen play, and a couple exclusive missions or an exclusive area (maybe like 30 minutes total of exclusive activity), and all previously released DLC.

What I'd accept for full price: framerate similar to PS360, a static map on the gamepad, all the DLC (at least single player) rolled up.

TTGlider commented on PES 2014 Will Not Be Dispensed On Wii U:

This is a message no one will read. I just bought PES 2013 on Wii for a super cheap price. It is awesome. I don't know if it's the type of game I'd buy on day one, but it is really well made with some cool physics and awesome replay tool. I hope it does come back at least once on Wii U and supports the same awesome wiimote nunchuck control scheme.

TTGlider commented on Review: BrickBlast U! (Wii U eShop):

"Don’t get me wrong as I have no problem accepting criticism I just feel that this review was more one person’s opinion and doesn’t really represent the gaming communities best interest. "

What is this, satire? A review is one person's opinion. The reviewer isn't supposed to guess the audience's opinion. So let me get this straight: in YOUR opinion, the gaming communities "best interests" are met by buying you game. Is that about right? What an amateur reply, Mr. Statusphere. Yeah, I really hope Nintendolife "gets on the same page" with you. That's exactly what I want from reviewers. To "be on the same page" as the game developer as to the game's rating and review.... what a joke.

TTGlider commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

I'm really looking forward to this. If it has the DLC included, that would rock. If it has an exclusive mission set, that would be incredible. If it just runs at a steady 30 FPS, I'll probably pick it up.

TTGlider commented on Armillo Patch Rolls Onto Wii U to Fix Framerat...:

Hmm, the framerate still isn't what I would expect given the seemingly modest poly count. Also the game pulls you from bright to dark to challenge stage to boss fight with little thematic connection. And deaths sneak up on you out of the blue with the camera far back. But, there is some creativity here, I'll keep at it.
