TWK commented on Pokémon Go is an AR Game Headed to iOS and An...:

Wasn't interested until I heard that the guys behind this game, Niantic, made Ingress for Android and iOS. It's an ARG just like this new game. That game is very hardcore and a pretty deep experience. It came out some years ago. I hadn't really seen something like it at that point and actually haven't yet. There are still many people playing Ingress.

So my hopes have risen quite a lot. It's not just a mobile game. but a novel idea. I think this could be very interesting.



TWK commented on Feature: Our Tributes and Memories of Satoru I...:

What a wonderful article to celebrate this great man!

It is sad that Mister Iwata passed so soon. He will be dearly missed! His humour, respect for doing things right really did something for Nintendo. He has his own legendary status with his work and true heart at Nintendo. I am sad of his early passing, but I do hope Nintendo will continue the way of his leading. May his spirit find peace.

Thank you for everything!



TWK commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

What a great writeup, and tribute, to a man no one can't love! Thank you for that.

RIP Satoru Iwata.



TWK commented on Reaction: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D is an Impres...:

This game is astounding and one of my best gaming experiences ever. Everything in this game is just incredible; the story, gameplay mechanics, music, scenery and art direction all superb! Very seldom have a seen and experienced a game just like this one. The soundtrack is legendary. For me absolutely the best game on Wii and also one of the best games I've ever played. I will never forget the summer of 2011.



TWK commented on Weirdness: Pikmin on GameCube Can Be Run in Wi...:

As a professional software developer myself I don't think this is particularly weird. I mean usually the games are developed in a Linux or Windows environment and therefore it makes a lot of sense to be able to run your games locally on your machine, albeit at lower speed, but still working. I've done Nintendo DS development and remember using their Ensata Nintendo DS emulator on Windows (also called NitroDS).



TWK commented on The Wii U Is Region Locked, Of Course:

@ZeldaFan5991 You're absolutely right! As each region has completely different economies, and internal/external markets, and therefore prices are different. Also remember that the actual cost of publishing a game is different in each country; I'm talking about distribution, selling and stuff like that. Countries with higher income-rates generally have higher prices on products.
This was to be expected. Talk about hurting consumers... Nintendo is a company that wants to earn money and therefore needs to adjust itself to each of its markets.



TWK commented on Wii U Pre-Order Guide:

@19Robb92 I just preordered mine here in Denmark. The current announced price for premium is 3499 DKK, so I guess it will be around 4000SEK.



TWK commented on Nintendo Download: 7th June 2012 (Europe):

Heroes of Ruin is great, but the graphics are a little dull to be honest. The gameplay is great though... which I consider more important than fancy graphics.
One more thing... the game have some issues with the framerate... it is dipping below what I find reasonable whenever you do heavy combat.



TWK commented on This is How Game Gear Games Will Look on 3DS:

@Corbs Nothing new. When you play Game Boy titles on the 3DS you can hold START+SELECT before you boot the Game Boy game--this will show a Game Boy background just like with the upcoming Game Gear games. Furthermore, you can actually turn on 3D and get a cool 3D effect.



TWK commented on Wii Sensor Bar Works Using Heat, Claims UK New...:

Actually you could say the the sensor bar emits heat... it emits infrared radiation... which in term is can be interpreted as heat.

I will agree that it seems a little stupid to say it like the newspaper did.



TWK commented on Pullblox:

@Azikira Yes, I agree. It is Intelligent Systems... everything they make are grade AAA stuff.

Best 3DSWare title yet for me! Incredible game! Gameplay, controls and audio are top notch!



TWK commented on Pyramids:

Pretty good title.
I have some complaints though;
Controls are not that responsive (annoying at times)
Menu and restart level should be faster, it gets tiresome
