TreesenHauser commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

First off, I'll start by saying I've only had a passive interest in this game since I've owned a Wii U--I liked the idea of a racing sim on the console and saw its potential, but wasn't too sure if I'd buy it day one, for example.

With that out of the way, I'm very disappointed by the way they're handling this now. At this point, I'm used to third-party games not coming to Wii U. It's no shock to me anymore. The console hasn't sold terribly well and the user base is small. If developers don't want to bring their games to Wii U, that's their choice. They're a business first--they have to make money in order to keep going and all that.

However, don't turn it around back at us, Slightly Mad. It wasn't always a maybe. Ever since I could remember, you talked of bringing Project Cars to Wii U, like it was a for-sure thing. I remember all the articles where you'd tout how great it's looking on the console. Heck, don't believe me, do a search on this very website, I'm sure they'll pop up. It's your word against your own word, not ours.

If you want to shelve it until NX, that's your deal. But I promise by then I'll probably have forgotten about Project Cars. It'll be up to you to find some way to sweeten it enough to make it worth the interest. Good luck.



TreesenHauser commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

Still deciding whether I should wait until later, or go ahead and trade some stuff in for this on Friday. I had a blast playing Global Testfire :D



TreesenHauser commented on Waka-Waka-Well I Never, Pac-Man Turns 35 Today:

Happy birthday Pac-Man!

Pac-Man is one of my first gaming memories growing up. After setting up the NES and playing Mario when I was about five, I popped in a Tengen cart of Pac-Man and played away! And the game never gets old either. Heck, I admit I even like Pac-Man 2 The New Adventures. And when Pac-Man was announced for Smash I was beyond excited about it!



TreesenHauser commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Demo Confirmed For Th...:

I can understand their reasoning for doing this, but at the same time it'd be nice to play an offline demo so I can at least have some time to adjust to the game's controls and see if it's something I'd enjoy playing. Whether my money goes to a pre-order or not will be determined by how the demo is.



TreesenHauser commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

@JaxonH "And I do recall people complaining every single time a virtual console game released for a system that was on the WiiShop. Now that they've moved on to GBA, DS, and Wii (and broke ground on N64 which was another huge complaint, even though it's not new), I noticed people start complaining that Nintendo is not releasing SNES games. But when they were releasing SNES games, it was all "move on to something new already". So I really feel like people are going to complain regardless of what happens."

Nailed it.



TreesenHauser commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a Nintendo Direct...:

Since pretty much every member on Nintendo Life has given their wish-lists I may as well throw my hat into the ring too.

-Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2
-Mewtwo DLC release date
-Splatoon release date
-More info about Devil's Third
-Release date/window for Xenoblade Chronicles X
-Yoshi's Woolly World release date
-Trailer/Gameplay footage of Star Fox
-Of course, as much info about the new Zelda as I can get

I'm in no shape to get my hopes up about N64 games on Wii U Virtual Console anymore. Not to be a cynic, but Nintendo would have released some already if it was ever seriously part of their plans. And yeah, I know on that site of theirs it said they were "coming soon," but it was way too long ago. Nintendo seriously dropped the ball with their handling of the VC on Wii U.

Oh, and until Nintendo figures out their amiibo stock issues here in NA, I'm done with those things. I've basically come to terms with the fact I'll probably never get my hands on a Ness amiibo... though I'll sure as heck try.



TreesenHauser commented on Chrono Trigger Turns 20, but is Ultimately Tim...:

I've been playing this for the last couple of days. I've got it saved just before the final battles. Then I saw this and now I feel like finishing it off.

Anyone who has never played this wonderful game needs to get it. Worth every cent.



TreesenHauser commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (North America):

I'm leaning towards OlliOlli, but for those that have played it... how is it? I'm always on the fence about skateboarding titles. I saw a preview for it this morning and it looks cool, but I'm curious about what players think of it.

And if not OlliOlli, probably Tengami since I hear lots of good about it.
