@Nintenjoe64 @OorWullie it really is overdue for a remake/rehash/re-release or even a vc option. Wave race maybe more so.... I find it frustrating that , as a non handheld user, I can't play the latest versions of this, Mario64 or lylat wars for example. An e shop version, even if it was game pad only handheld ports, would shut me up. An hd version of any of these would send me over the moon! =)

@Jenraux well don't get bitter if it bombs out, you don't want to be making games like this for a living later down the line. ;)
My opinion on this is that I really respect the developers honesty and straight up attitude. It shines out as a good thing in a horrible industry plagued by liars and marketing men with no morality. However I don't think that joining them game wise will do anything other than more damage to the bigger picture. It's a sad truth that this game in terms of artistic statement is nothing, however making games with integrity is rare and bills need paying and let's face it- somebody would do it if not him!

Great game, not nearly as complete as dkr but great. I thought the tracks were great, loads of short cuts like the wall jump in wario stadium and the rainbow road big drop. Surprised to see the multiplayer marked down as, for me, that was this games best feature and the best battle multiplayer ever in a Mario kart!! Many good memories of this one......=)

@Manfred thanks for the screen shot, there's been very little to keep us going so far ;)
Could I just ask if you plan to update the game, if successful, with dlc and content? Since nano assault was an amazing game with a superior engine to most retail games. It was a shame that it's flaw was limited content, you guys did the hardest bit but more levels would have been perfect for that game!

@Usagi-san its a thin line what would be classed as copyright infringement and free advertising with internet mods and viral videos nowadays. Much money has been made by fan made campaigns featuring well known image rights used without permission. If it made them money they set it slide. In this case the rights would belong to id and rare. Since rare will never use the brand again and id are desperate to resurrect the doom brand, i would file this under 'no harm done'. Relax ;)

Amazing game, one of the best n64 games made. Beat mk64 into submission in EVERY category!! Graphics, single player story mode, boss battles, inventive multiplayer modes, multiple vehicles, non linear progression.....let's not forget that there was a way to play the single player campaign in 2 player aswell people!?! The multiplayer was this games best feature . In a league above any Mario kart games made since. Outstanding game!!

@ShadyKnights very well said, you just cut through a massive pile of bull and went straight to the point. I salute you. Personally, I've mixed feelings on this that only reviews will help with. In other words, I'll actually check out the game before I decide!!

Quality game, enjoyed this allot at the time and was a real system seller as there was no game like this on the psx. Came up allot on the playground as a tip for tat argument over which was the better console. Loved it!!

ULTRA-64 commented on Watch Dogs Stares at a November Release Date o...:

@AcesHigh73 @IxC don't worry I'm not a hater, I just want this to be a fair debate.
The biggest supporters of the Wii u are surely Sega, with multiple exclusive games with all dlc available. In some cases free. Ubisoft deserve a terrible reputation with Wii u owners, not maybe boycotting them, but some kind of back lash!!
How many 100%complete (no missing dlc/updates/same time as other versions etc...) Games have they actually released? Even zombie u which I loved was riddled with game breaking bugs that didn't get patched for over 6 months and the delay on rayman was on top of it being promised as exclusive. Furthermore, having played through black flag on Wii u, the frame rate was TERRIBLE, crashed often and full of glitches- it was 100% the worst version available and to cap it all off had no dlc!
Let's be fair, ubisoft were the biggest 'launch supporters'....the problem is they couldn't walk away quick enough after. To show support with flaws then back off whilst pointing fingers at consumers for blame is the reason most have an issue, imo.

ULTRA-64 commented on Review: The Fall (Wii U eShop):

Strange that the other reviews I have read say the voice acting is the strongest feature of the game and never mentioned the controls being bad at all! It's also hard to say a game should have more d pad support just to match the old skool menus. Sounds like the reviewer did not get along with this game entirely but I respect his opinion enough to maybe read up on this more rather than dive in!

ULTRA-64 commented on Catch Up on All the Bayonetta 2 Direct Videos ...:

Count me in for the two disc special ed , day one! Waiting on Amazon pricing before I pre order but I decided a little while ago I would only have time for bayonetta 2 or hyrule warriors and, short of reviews being shocking, this looks a far better game. Also in terms of value and reputation, the amount of content on offer in the two for one is unbelievable.
As posted above, Nintendo need to give this some major media backing! Not just for sales of the game and promotion of the Wii u. But as a message to 3rd party devs that different games can succeed and Nintendo WILL back them not steamroll them with another Mario game!

I can wait a little longer.....great game but my back log is not going down. I'm working on a finish 2 games buy one ratio and I've got steamworld dig to get before this so that means I need to 100% mk8 , dk:tf AND mass effect 3 before this is available. Good times!

ULTRA-64 commented on Rising Star Games Celebrates Its 10th Annivers...:

@CaviarMeths your probably right , but it's likely due to the need for more promotion in Europe. In America Nintendo products sell better so they have to 'do more' to get numbers in Europe. Also I wonder if the whole club Nintendo rewards effect this? If NOA have sacrificed margin for loyalty bonuses so they don't have as much room for discounts?

@RainbowGazelle I'm in your camp there . Maybe its a regional thing. I'm in England.
It just makes more sense to me to call them computer games as it's a computer not a vcr as was standard when I started gaming!

ULTRA-64 commented on Ubisoft's Latest UK Release Schedule Still Sho...:

Bwahahahahaha... Ubisoft are bloody useless!! In the past I've gotten defensive of ubisoft, and at one point I was telling all my mates to wait for this amazing inventive game coming called watch_dogs!! Now I just find the whole thing comical, it's insulting to everyone involved that they have still not got a date/screen shot/features or even behind closed doors viewings for the media. I've got this image in my head of a hundred monkeys typing code for them in a sealed room, a bannana drops every time they get a usable string of 1's and 0's......
The irony that a game about interconnected technology and they don't have a clue what's going on with theirs!!!!

I guess this is the downside of a popular e shop. I'll take games like this swimming around of we keep getting the quality games we've had lately . Swings and roundabouts I guess?

@iphys one of those things actually happened to me !!! I broke my left thumb training in April and needed surgery, only got the cast off this month. Of course mk8 came out in that time a few days before my birthday.....I totally panicked until I remembered the motion controls!

@iphys don't know why but that post just cracked me up. I had this image in my head of someone 'playing it safe' and canceling their holiday and not leaving their house. Trying to hop aboard the spruce moose..........all just to make sure they get all their mk8 dlc! Lol

@Ventilator mature games on Nintendo console's is a big issue for me, I'm 30 and love classic Nintendo stuff but I need at Least one mature game on the go to at a time to keep sane with all the bright colours. Cod etc are boring but also I love zombie games so I'm always looking/struggling for good mature games and after the excellent deus ex and zombie u I'm finding mass effect 3 a bit dull. I'm hoping blacklist is a bit better.

@stanleecroup might I suggest castlestorm, nes remix and the highly rated child of light as starting points. For more particular tastes, stick it to the man, master reboot and of course the virtual console options. Just some of my favorites and highly rated games, hope you like some of them ?

ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

@Ventilator I agree fully about the on disc dlc, it's ethically unsound to charge more for what's already there. At the risk of sounding like I'm defending it, it's pretty much a norm outside of Nintendo now and the alternative option is to pay more as, Let's face it, they want that dollar somehow! The games industry in general is struggling and they are trying to squeeze everything out of each product as they lose cash on most games, ubisoft in particular have succumbed to some really 'business minded' decisions that are very insulting to the educated gamers out there. I used to buy all their games new to show support, now I'm not bothered so much about helping them as they havnt shown propper respect to their consumers!

ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

@Grumblevolcano @Ventilator on disc dlc is a possibility but it's hard to know why the dlc never came for black flag. It was an unexpected treat that game, assassin's creed games bore me normally but I'd broken my thumb so a slow paced collectathon was perfect.....and of course pirates!! =)
I'm pretty sure it sold way more than blacklist aswell so there should have been dlc but these games take years to make and some decisions are made very early/late in development so it could have been decided way before sales figures came out.
My big gripe is that offline co-op was never patched , I can live without extra stuff so long as the basic game is complete, which this wasn't!

@Ventilator sorry dude, your right! I was a bit pissed about the lack of local cop op in the game so I must have missed a bit of news on that. Embarrassing thing is I own the game, just never put it in the drive to find out as my back log is huge!
