ULTRA-64 commented on Guide: How to Get Involved in Splatoon's First...:

Wasted on me, shoddy internet has meant I rarely get to finish an online match =(
I've been spacing out the 1 player to get my splatoon fix but nearly done that, then I'll move onto the squid amiibo challenges. After that if my internet is still terrible.......well , then I will cry!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I'm sure they did all of this with the Wii u as well.......I really hope that more 3rd partys rejoin the Nintendo bandwagon. However, they might need to rethink allot of strategic partnerships as they got dropped quickly by supposedly loyal support before! Imo they need to put cash into subsidising and funding releases, maybe just to get momentum, from some companies to make sure they are on board 100%.
Let's use gta5/far cry3/4 and tomb raider as high profile games we missed at key points in the Wii u launch phase which might have gained more consumer respect!



ULTRA-64 commented on The Swindle is Sneaking Closer to a Wii U eSho...:

Good stuff, I'll be excited to read the review. Looks really good.
in other news, my yoshis woolly world and amiibo just arrived today earlier than expected, BOOM! =)
edit-just read the article again, thought the Wii u version was the 31st!! No date= not good news =(



ULTRA-64 commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

Well I've got this pre ordered already and I'm really happy with the review score........HOWEVER! Looking at how great all those 3d models are makes me wish we had a REAL 3d platformer coming in this (or any!?!) Style. I find it so weird that in this hd era we have moved to 'less dimensions' and whilst I truly love 2d platformers, I prefer 3d! If someone had told me in my n64 days that the amount of 3d gaming options from Nintendo would reduce drastically, well I'd have slapped that PlayStation fan round the times have changed =/



ULTRA-64 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

I voted devils third!!
I consider yoshi as already out as it's just days away from arriving at my door and it was bought months ago.(less time before Lego Jurassic world comes out in July,why was this game not featured??)
XCX is going to be great but really isn't my type of game normally, I'll almost certainly pick it up to try as the quality is clearly there but I'm not confident I'll be rushing to get it loaded up asap.....
otherwise just starfox interests me and I want that to be great so much that I'm better off ignoring it and hopefully being surprised in a good way in time (fingers crossed) .



ULTRA-64 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Great article, I can really relate to your point of view. I have very little enthusiasm for the whole amiibo thing, it's all about the games for me. I will spend money on whatever gives me a good gaming experience, be it dlc/toys/accessories, there just aren't enough uses of amiibo to justify a constant internet hunt for more! I have toad,wario and the squid and may get the other splatoon ones when I run out of things to do in the game. I don't think I'm missing anything to not have any more!



ULTRA-64 commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

@Caryslan well said man, sad truth for me.....I'm more excited to get Lego Jurassic world on Friday than for any of the Wii u games mentioned in the e3 broadcast!! I should be all giddy about starfox-the n64 game is an all time favourite of mine, but I'm too nervous they have it all wrong to be truly excited!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

I loved the game, bucket loads of atmosphere and great overall game design. Yeah it had some issues, it WAS a launch game after all! I can't see the original translating well as a port, it would need allot of reworking and the gameplay would change too much. It would however sell and make them money so who knows?
Another thing, the article states the game made a loss, I believe this to be INCORRECT, the statements I have read indicate the game sold below expectations and missed profit targets but turned in some level of reward for their investment! Greedy Ubisoft!!!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Sonic Dash Passes 100 Million Smart Device Dow...:

No biggie really, there a loads of rubbish games on mobile with far more users. If it makes them money, as a business they'll take it. But as a gamer and a consumer(and a mobile phone salesman) I really couldn't care less how well this meaningless tripe is performing......



ULTRA-64 commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

How about she crash lands on a planet where everything is oversized and huge except for these tiny ant-like creatures. She befriends them and they carry out tasks for her when prompted leaving the player trying to manage completing tasks with limited resources and time before it gets dark and some hungry bulborb, ahem, I mean metroids, come out and try to eat everything....... You see where I'm going with this right!?!?



ULTRA-64 commented on Splatoon Holds Onto Top 5 Territory in the UK ...:

@Rhydas @Mk_II the jumping is a common tactic in fps games to avoid getting shot in the head as much. Of course in splatoon it doesn't work that way and they look silly for trying. The good sign of this is less cod players out there and hey, at least they can't lay on the floor or tea-bag you if you lose ;)



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 11th June (Europe):

Well I feel stupid, I thought Dr Mario was on Wii u aswell, WRONG!! Nothing for me in which case, which is fine as I have loads to play still and more on the way. I've been well into batman: arkam city lately which surprised me by being great so far.....



ULTRA-64 commented on Splatoon Holds Onto Top 5 Territory in the UK ...:

Well credit where due, I HAVE seen splatoon advertised here in the UK!! Tv ads, website pop ups and magazine page''s been widely reviewed and commented on on tv and social media and seems to have a genuine 'buzz' generated!!
Let's hope it's a corner turned in terms of how future releases in the UK will be delivered and we'll see more recognition as deserved for the Wii u



ULTRA-64 commented on The Splatoon Inkbrush Weapon is Set to Arrive ...:

More stuff = good news!!
I'm warming to the game now......I was bitter I couldn't finish a match as my internet is terrible and that the local multiplayer sucked. I stayed up before my day off work and played it from 1am-4am to FINALLY get a taste!! Great experience online and now I have a fresh perspective I love the game. Shame I'll only get 2-5 hours a week in =(



ULTRA-64 commented on Super Mario Bros. Inducted Into the World Vide...:

@Einherjar wouldn't wolfenstien 3d be the first propper fps to be commercially recognized? I can see why doom is thought of first, it was way better and more popular. But I was under the impression that is was wolfenstien that 'paved the way'.
Also, I'm maybe being stupid here, was the warcraft(I played 1&2) strategy games before wow or is it all the same series of games?



ULTRA-64 commented on Feature: The Making Of Body Harvest:

Loved the game back in the day and this story is fascinating. I bought the cartridge again last year for the collection and was surprised how badly it had aged though.



ULTRA-64 commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Has A Dramatic Impact On ...:

Great to see such a big impact from the bundle gives more chance of future options in the UK for a similar deal. Personally I'd love a similar thing for the vc , a selection of different types of games not just Mario x3, to allow me to dip my toes into classic games I know less about. I'd settle for anything resembling the current one though, great games for the price!!



ULTRA-64 commented on Weirdness: Man Gets Inked In Splatoon, Literally:

I love tattoos and splatoon is great........but no!
It's hard to say someone has thought something through when there has been so little time to mull it over yet. Having said that, the pic he's chosen is one of the better images he could have gone for.....I just hope he agrees in 10 years ;)



ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th June (Europe):

Nothing to pull me away from my back log there, I'm running a finish 3/start 1 average to clear all the titles I left bits out on! Going well and got through loads but the last level on nes remix and the last level on sm3dw are killers so that will slow me down again!!
@Sakura loving your cat picture it yours or plucked of the web?
