ULTRA-64 commented on Review: Swords & Soldiers II (Wii U eShop):

sounds great. I'm a little confused about the medals thing though!?! Are there objective based achievements or time targets to be awarded medals?? Not meaning to niggle but it makes a massive difference to me whether this game has enhanced life span due to this additional measure compared to s&s hd....

ULTRA-64 commented on Review: New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U eShop / DS):

Never played this myself, So will grab this when I've finished New Super Luigi U. I like to 100% these games so might be a while yet......plus, I don't have a ds vc game yet so I'm curious to see how it looks/works on the gamepad!

It all comes down to value for money for me. I support people charging more for quality or it gives me a decent value. It doesn't help that retail games are so aggressively priced, I got Arkam city for £6 and that has given me hours!! so for so to pay more for a non physical game I can't trade would be hard if it wouldn't last long or be fun enough to justify the cost.

Probably the worst 'world wide' championship competition idea conceived this millennium. A Japanese company holding the event in a limited selection of us states whilst ignoring the rest of the world is frankly cringe worthy......Epic fail Nintendo!!

The possibilities were endless......but that includes an awful game! Bottom line is it never happened and would almost certainly not have been as good as previously released rare games as key members of the team had left. I'm not gonna beat myself up over this one.....

Epic yarn I can pick up physical for cheap so no rush there and although I really liked swords and soldiers hd . It seemed really short to play through so I'm not so keen to pay £15+ for that until a review says there's more to it this time around....

@audiobrainiac interesting to see darksiders pop up, I was always drawn to that game. I heard really bad things about bugs and glitches in the game but saw it really cheap allot and it reviewed well. I haven't seen it on a shelf in ages now but would still want to try it out. Did you have many problems when you played it dude?

@rjejr and I was so sure you'd pick tropical freeze after finding it so easy!?! ;)

For me my favourites would be pikmin 3 , dk:tf , steamworld dig and deus ex. They have been my most enjoyable at least. 3d world was good but not open enough for me and mk8 is STILL missing a battle mode before I can respect how complete they have made the game elsewhere. And I think zombie u deserves a mention just for being so damn atmospheric, a hadn't been that 'into' a game in years before that. Lego city undercover should have been featured also.

We'll I'm happy about this, hopefully this will have some kind of launch discount too. I simply would bother with this on the ds as I prefer home consoles to handhelds and good 2d platform gameplay translates well to most formats so nothing to worry about except bigger pixels ;)

Another interesting take on the concept, like the others, though it all comes down to gameplay and frame rate on this type of thing so We'll see what materializes.
I'm gonna shamefully admit here aswell that I was more excited about the extreme g link than f zero as I preferred that franchise through the n64 era =/

@MJKOP yeah I finally got to try the game out, just! My dodgy internet meant I never actually finished a game, however I did get to run through the tutorials(twice over) and get the set up vibe and 'feel' of the game in general. It wasn't ideal tbh but it cheered me up rather than pissing me off and blew away a few dark clouds bothering me ;) overall fun game that has an energy about it lacking from my other Wii u purchases so far....bet its even better if you can complete a match and get that 'winning feeling'!
You got your copy pre ordered like a smooth criminal?

Fingers crossed I can get connected for the final session.....I really want to get involved but I'm trying not to get excited to avoid a let down if my poor internet fails. I've just had a terrible day all round.....could really do with something working for me today, fingers crossed!!!

@rjejr love that you still have time for the mothers out there after staying up late to shoot stuff..... ;)
I can't wait to try the game( if poss in the last UK session) if my internet holds up that is. I've got a very bad ping so online gaming is a struggle for me and I'm unlikely to get much out of this at peak use time. Would be nice to get excited for the game again after non-stop 'not what I wanted to hear' info getting rolled out.

Well it's all starting to take shape now eh? I'm staying neutral in the amiibo content for now, I'll wait to see more before I form an opinion. I've got the pack with the squid pre ordered so I can get involved without searching stores for now.
Cracking idea from @rjejr though. They really should do that!

Shovel knight does get about game wise.....popped up in armillo last night!! didn't expect that so nice bonus. 3games to go and my back log clearing will let me actually buy shovel knight and see what all the fuss is about.

@Kaze_Memaryu in the least confrontational way possible, I'm enquiring here and not arguing ;)
it sounds very hypocritical to get so excited about a 'theme' whilst lambasting mk8 dlc for being too superficial. At a price costing more than two entire tracks for a game, do you consider these themes to be good value?

ULTRA-64 commented on Preview: Unraveling the Truth in Yoshi's Wooll...:

I'm actually getting quite excited for this now. I got it pre-ordered as I love the art style and havnt played a yoshi game in years. But I think I'm ready for a game like this and the more gameplay details I hear the more I want the game.
I've got my yarn yoshi pre ordered but I'd be furious if I had a 'normal' yoshi amiibo that did nothing. I don't think they would do that tbh. To the people posting that they have confirmed it........I'm calling bull until somebody provides a link to a statement to confirm. Everyone loves to pedal bad news but without facts to back it up its just opinion!

@rjejr respect for using the motion controls btw! I had to for 6 weeks as when mk8 came out I had a cast I'm my left hand due to a broken thumb. It was hard going but let me play when I couldn't hold a pad properly so avoided a gaming drought!!

@rjejr you don't need all 3 stars fortunately.....I've only got 2 stars on the 1st dlc pack tracks and its letting me play them on 200cc. That is of course assuming you've got a gold Mario amiibo otherwise you have to finish everything in reverse ;)

I'm not really into the whole amiibo thing but there's a few characters I'll pick up if I can. I've been lucky to grab a toad and a wario which are apparently hard to find and got my pre orders of splatoon and yarn yoshi with the pack-in amiibo. shame people are struggling to get them so much....

ULTRA-64 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd April (Europe):

already bought the 2 pack dlc for mk8 so that's taken care of already. Mk:super circuit has to be bought asap after I've whined on here for ages about Europe still waiting. Get paid on Friday so that'll be my treat, might even go crazy and get mk:ds to complete the collection in one swoop. ;)
