UpdateNightmare commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Online is much better now, even though two of my match slots is broken.
But they still had a year or two after initial complaints on the other platforms to make the online better by design, but they didn't.

Right now as soon as one person makes a move and go do something else for the next few hours, that game takes days to complete, as neither of you know who will be online at that time....

This would of been solved by Live Games where you had to commit time, and a period in which you had to make your move.



UpdateNightmare commented on Feature: VooFoo Studios and Ripstone on Pure C...:

I'm not happy with the Wii U version, online seems to be broken, takes way too long to find a player. I was expecting an online game where I could quickly find an opponent and not have to wait years for a game to even begin.

It should be simple, search online, find player, each gets x-time to make move and voila.
So far it seems they tried to recreate a browser game of chess.
Feels like I waisted my money.

Can't stand the blur in the backround either. It's just there permanently, doesn't matter where you focus.



UpdateNightmare commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Satoru Iwata's Nintendo...:

Look at the nice reflection on that cheaply produced made in China screen...
The Wii U hardware was outdated the moment it arrived, today's smart phones just have better screens, multi touch functionality (in the art academy this would allowed you to rest part of your hand on the screen while you draw) and it doesn't hurt your eyes when the sun is out.

The triggers aren't real triggers either, when they made the wii U they cut way too many corners. Removed all possible useful functionality like being able to watch blu ray movies and even to show the family photos and videos you took with the camera.

The PS3 is honestly more next gen than the Wii U



UpdateNightmare commented on Nintendo "Confident" in PC Box Anti-Piracy Cas...:

I want to play BluRay and MkV files on my Wii U...

Any modding and piracy can be quickly made irrelevant if there was official support or just a great pricing model that required zero effort from the user's point of view. What if Wii U had the Steam sales equivalent for the virtual console where every game went for 50cents -> $1?

I'm also annoyed that I can't put a PDF file on a memory stick and read it...



UpdateNightmare commented on South African Retailer Slices Wii U Price in Half:

The price reductions in the remotes and games actually made me fork out a lot of money. Also we finally got the eShop, although we still don't have the eShop prepaid cards. The prices are good so far, if we get those cards and the prices remain affordable like this, the Wii U might gain traction here fast.

Currently I'm playing ME3 which I bought for R200 new (less than $20).



UpdateNightmare commented on Cliff Bleszinski Likens The Wii To A "Virus":

His kinda right to a degree, so many people selling their Wii consoles with only a few games in their collection. It's normally Wii Sports with some utter crappy game no one cares about.

Maybe if the wii didn't consist of 90% crap kids won't even enjoy then maybe.
