ToniK commented on Video: Your Heart Will Melt At This Sega Genes...:

I guess I wasn't aware at the time that my precious Mega Drive II was called Genesis somewhere else. Loved that console so much. I still remember the day I got it in '93 I think. And that song in the end of the video was one of my favorites. From Sonic & Knuckles if I'm right?

I think this type of game would benefit from the 3D effect. It could possibly look really cool even in the simplest form. I'll keep an eye on this. Never played the original, Terraria I've played for some hours.

ToniK commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

Awesome game. It's a download title so it's not very lengthy but it has replay value. Would like to see a sequel with even more content :) Well done, I&F!

ToniK commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

Well I bought both AC3 and 4 and absolutely adored Black Flag. 100%'d it like a boss. Also bought Splinter Cell and Zombi U. I guess I'm in a minority. Great releases apart from occasional frame rate issues. Sad to see Ubi joining the Wii U abandoners camp.

ToniK commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

I have no idea what this could be but I welcome it nevertheless. I am getting older after all, and I could possibly be interested in some QOL (whatever that is). I can't see this harming other departments. They'll still deliver the few games they have to offer.

ToniK commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

MK8 is obviously a success. On the other hand, it can't sell infinitely while there are only 7 million Wii Us out there. It really starts to seem there is quite limited demand for a console like Wii U. No need for doom 'n' gloom, it is a great console but it is what it is. Can't see Smash Bros. changing it at this point and that is quite frankly their last resort. MK8 only gave a moderate boost which lasted for 2 weeks and that was it.

Skyward Sword didn't sell that well so I don't think the mainstream audience is that interested in the next installment. It's just us. Metroid was never that big in the first place. Metroid Prime may be the best game ever made but the sales were humble. So even if they officially announced a new Metroid it wouldn't change a thing.

So, we have a great console with great games that is not selling and won't sell in the future. We'll deal with it. I can't wait for the new Zelda and Project Zero and whatnot!

ToniK commented on Did You Realise Lone Survivor Was Coming to Wi...:

Cool, maybe I'll check it out. It just bugs me a bit that these games arrive so late. They've been on other platforms for ages and are usually quite cheap already or part of Humble Bundles and there we are paying overprice just to play it on this specific platform. Like always, I'll wait for discount.

ToniK commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:

Now they have a donation website. It would be really sad if they were in fact for real and now it's ruined :P I'm not saying they are but in these internet times it's sometimes next to impossible to get reliable info and when the snowball starts rolling...

ToniK commented on Master Reboot to Arrive on the Wii U eShop on ...:

Metacritic says 59 on PC and 62 on PS3. Seems like a game that has its flaws but if you're gonna like it you're gonna like it. The price is a bit steep but I'm gonna purchase this, either full-priced or from a sale. Looks great and if they gave it a makeover it would be awesome. Probably not though.

ToniK commented on Mario Kart 8 Still Competing in Nordic Region ...:

Finland is a Playstation zone, that's why. As a person in my late twenties I'm the only one I know who has a 3DS and the U. Kids are probably busy playing with tablets and teenagers and adults exclusively play NHL, GTA, CoD, Gran Turismo and some other random "mature" themed games. Well, you can see the list, it's pretty accurate.

Personally, I was never interested in Tomodachi Life. It seems like a social game and being a Nintendo gamer in Finland is not a social thing. It's quite lonely.

ToniK commented on First Impressions: Exploring the Depths of Aff...:

Consider this bought. I love the mood and visuals of Abyss and this seems to be on the same page. Also Knytt UG was great. The complex controls also seem like something I'd want to dive in. This type of indie stuff is what it's all about!

ToniK commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Well, I'm not "coming back" since I've never owned a Sony or Microsoft console before but I am planning on getting a PS4 at the end of this year. And yeah, I'm happy about the TLOU remastered. So in my case he's quite right.

Edit. Oh, and the point was that I was totally a Wii owner for some years. Played dozens of games.

ToniK commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

I've actually never visited their site. I did after reading this and will never do it again. The comment section was HOSTILE. Nintendo Life may not be Miiverse either but at least most people here are sensible and the overall atmosphere is friendly and mostly constructive even when dealing with serious subjects. I'm happy here.

ToniK commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

The lack of buttons is the biggest issue but also the superficiality and shallowness of the games on android devices is what keeps me away from them. Even the most console-like experiences lack all the depth of real console and pc games. Dead Space was okay but mostly "pick this up and then go to next checkpoint". Not to mention the countless Slendy and other games that rely solely on cheap scares. Tablets and phones are great for puzzle games but that's it.

ToniK commented on Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in...:

Like many have said, Shadow Wars is surprisingly good and should be bought by anyone who doesn't absolutely hate turn-based strategy. I would re-buy it with that price. Also Rayman Origins and maybe Legends after that.

ToniK commented on Review: How to Survive (Wii U eShop):

The price seems a bit steep but I'd really like to give this a chance. It somehow seems really charming to me, don't know why. Half off the price and I'm sold. I'm still quite deep in the MK8 vortex but in a few weeks I might check this out.

ToniK commented on Nintendo Executive Suggests Wii U is at a "Tip...:

Yes, I think Wii U still has a small chance to be a moderate success. Either way, I have enjoyed my Wii U like there is no tomorrow and it is probably my all-time favorite console. I still have many things to look forward to and if I need some of those immature "mature" titles, I will buy a PS4 or a pc. Which I probably will. But I've been satisfied and busy with this console and while I hope long life and prosper for the U, I and the other Wii U owners will have a decent amount of quality games which in the end is the most important thing to us as customers. Ok, off to Mario Kart then :)

ToniK commented on Eiji Aonuma Vows to Reduce Hand-Holding in Fut...:

That's fine. SS is my favorite Zelda but it did have excessive hand-holding at times. What bugs me though is that people still consider OoT pretty much flawless while some of its "puzzles" were unfair and stupid. "Oh, you're doing the exact right thing but you stand an inch off so go ahead and think of something else and wander through Hyrule for hours." Yeah, wasn't too fond of that game. It started a lot of beautiful things but every single Zelda after that has been better in my opinion. I want content instead of confusion and content did SS offer.
