I hoped that there would be some Indie sales for Wii U. Especially on "How to Survive" which is worth much less due to lack of online.

Cubemen 2 with cross platform play, level sharing etc. looks like a must buy thou.

Ventilator commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@Pod: Okay then.

Anyways. This DLC will probably sell 1 million on Wii U. If this was a 3rd party racing game, they would be lucky to sell 1000 depending on how much the game sold.
Hell.. Its hard to sell 500.000 on third party games on Wii U, and MK 8 sold 3 millions "in short time".
Most Wii U users bought Wii U for the Nintendo games and not third party games. I'm one of the big 3rd party supporters on Wii U, so there will be less for me to buy.

@Jazzer94 : So you are telling us that economics is 100% the same in countries worldwide? Its obvious that the prices and salaries is different from country to country. Since you didn't know, food prices differs too. ;) Isn't it ignorant to say otherwise?

PS: Don't tell me China, Hungary, Somalia, India etc.. have same salaries and money power as Germany, Norway, UK, Denmark etc.

Ventilator commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

I just pre-ordered both DLC packs at the awesome price and downloaed Mercedes DLC.
16 brand new tracks, new karts, characters etc. was indeed cheap DLC.

At the moment of writing, MK 8 patch is not online yet in EU. The game refuse to recognise the Mercedes DLC until the patch is out.

We complain about companies milking DLC too much, but in this case its too slow.
2 DLC's in like 9-10 next months is too long. The good thing is that there is 16 new tracks.
In DLC pack 2, i'm sure there will be Starfox and Metroid tracks. It makes sense due to the existing tracks, and DLC 1 pack.

@Grumblevolcano : No problem. Online games on Wii U is mostly fully alive with loads of people on each game. Mass Effect 3, NFS Most Wanted, 007 Legends etc. is still fully alive. As for Blacklist its random now due to 2 player coop. I'm sure people is still nagging for coop players on Miiverse, so it shouldn't be an issue. Xbox 360 don't have anything like Miiverse, so its harder to find people.

@ULTRA-64: The cost to make games today is more than ever, while game prices is same old.
Day 1 DLC is their sneaky way to increase the price of the game. Its not always greed, because the game alone might not always cover the development costs. They also need money for their next game.

Third parties is insulting when they claim Wii U can't have mature games, and even more insulting when Call of Duty is considered a mature game which its far from. Pre-teens and teens is 80% of the COD gamers.

@ULTRA-64 : On disk DLC is a very bad thing. It means it is already in the game, but you have to pay to unlock it.
I own both AC on Wii U, but haven't played them yet.

Co-op was most likely not patched due to overall poor sales. Thats why there is no new DLC either. Its a very underrated game, and its very good for people who don't like Stealth too. You can play the levels how you want. Sadly gameplay will be changed again in the next one due to bad sales, which means i may not like the next. Normally i wouldn't buy it, but i bought all big title UBI games for Wii U. 10 of them. Blacklist was 10 times better than expected.

Ventilator commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

@Grumblevolcano : Blacklist is the only UBI game getting all DLC. I think the DLC was already on disc, and was unlocked by key or keys. The second DLC is mostly weapons. Both is on eShop. Its strange that they skipped DLC on AC 4, while AC 3 on Wii U have some DLC.
Since Blacklist sold so bad on all consoles, it never got any future DLC :( Personally, its the Splinter Cell i liked most ever.

I own 39 Retail games on Wii U, but to date Blacklist is the most played.

@ULTRA-64 : No problem. Online co-op on Wii U is awesome. I played Bacllist 10's of hours online and unlocked everything. In total i played nearly 100 hours. Blacklist was so fun that i bought it again on Xbox 360 to play it all again online and offline. I prefer Wii U version because of touch pad usage.

@C-Olimar : 48 tracks would be nice. I think some MK game already had that.
They need to make some new online Battle Arenas too which requires less work than a new track, but they can't just make one track. There will most likely be 2-4 tracks at once.
I think they should focus more on tracks than cars.

Ventilator commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

Its obvious that peoples first choice is the free MK 8 DLC.
However i wonder why Nintendo never announces new DLC tracks or something? Maybe they wait long time so they can't be caught for milking.

I might get Steamworld dig and more Zen Pinball tables too.

Ventilator commented on Zen Studios Announces Another Three Tables for...:

@Spoony_Tech : Atleast we get the best tables in my opinion. I didn't care much for the football ones anyway, but thats me.

And besides. I own most Zen tables on Steam, PS3, VITA and 360 too. ;)
I could get football ones there eif i wanted.
I just prefer to buy the new tables only for Wii U nowadays.

Ventilator commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

This was the last major third party dropping Wii U.
Because of this, i also cancelled my pre-order of Watch Dogs on Wii U today.

There is no point of supporting these companies anymore on any console for me. I own 360 and PS3 too, but i wont get these anyway.
I have purchased ~1200 games on Wii U, PS3, 360 and Steam, so i have backlog for 20 years anyway.

Ventilator commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

How can a console be Next-Gen if its already on the market? PS4 and Xbone is the weakest console upgrade ever too as they use cheap off the shelve PC parts. Also. UBI have abandoned Wii U, so we know any new game is skipping it. Whats the point of making news of this every time? We know before a game is even announced that its not coming to Wii U.

@Anguspuss : Sales is quite repetiting nowadays. There is so many other Indie's that should be on sale, because they are overpriced.
Since Wii U have so many Indie's on shop now, most will drown in the jungle. They will be forced to lower sales on other games soon to make them sell some more. Better with sale price, than no sale at all. Steam already does this.

This is a good week. First buy is "Ice Climber" VC which is finally at the correct price. Also got my vote.
Edit: Damn! You need to buy NES Remix first :( No buy for me then.
I should get Bombing Bastards as its inspired by the mighty Dynablaster which came like 25 years ago.

Ventilator commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

@WillMelnyk: Yes, they did a good deal. I think Nintendo also sold them because many key people quitted at Rare when Perfect Dark was finished.

Microsoft don't use Rare's IP's much. They will re-release the N64 Banjo games on Xbone, but almost all Rare IP's is dead. Actually Killer Instinct is on Xbone too, but not made by Rare.

Ventilator commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

Nice update. It would be cool if you could see which games have on your friend list.
They also need to tie software to account and not hardware.
Even Microsoft allowed that on 360, but PS3 was partially locked.
Android is only locked to account too.

Ventilator commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

Since 1999, Rare employee's have been spread to like 10 companies.

People started to quit Rare before MS bought them, but even more quitted when MS took over. There isn't many original members left.
Rare have been Dead since N64 days if you looks what they done since N64.
Rare made more games for N64 in 3-4 years than they did for MS in 12 years.

Ventilator commented on Wii U Version Of Project CARS Drops To The Bac...:

#98: Hernandez:

EA "marketed" NFS Most Wanted as a quick and dirty port to Wii U.
EA "forgot" to tell people how much effort Criterion did with the game.
Not even the Wii U cover on NFS MW shows that the game is upgraded.

Blame EA for NFS to sell bad, because they didn't even tell the media that the game was superior to other versions. Months after they vaguely did, but it was way too late anyway.

Project Cars would sell much better, because it was very hyped on Wii U unlike NFS. Also because SMG bragged so much about Wii U version.

BTW: I already cancelled my pre-orders for both Wii U and Steam versions.
I refuse to support a poopoodoodoocacapoopledoopledoggiedoople company. Secondly, i refuse to buy a game on Wii U in 2015 at full price, when its old on PC, PS4 and Xbone.

I'm getting Swords and Soldiers HD, even when i own it on both Steam and PS3.
I want the Wii U touch features, and the price is low.
Expect the game to be native 1080p when its a Two Tribes game for Wii U.

I'm surprised that there is so little Indie releases on Wii U, when there must be over 200 upcoming announced by now. Indie support is great, but barely any releases. ;)
I wonder if there will there be a time with 5-10 Indie's a week later like on PS3?

Ventilator commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

@LDXD: Yes, alot points out to that Nintendo will be the publisher, but also payed them off to get it exclusive. X, Bayonetta 2 and The Devils Third will show that Nintendo have more to offer than Mario etc. as exclusives.

Also the boss of that dev showed off how could it would be to play it with Touch pad over a year ago. He swiped on screen to rip off a tail or something as a teaser. :)

And yes, i had forgot the game myself. If it was still multiplatform, there would be news several times this year to keep the hype alive.
If its Wii U exclusive now, they are probably making it from ground up natively to push the console. Thats why it takes extra time before we hear about it.

Ventilator commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

@SahashraLA: I agree with you. Miyamoto himself said a few years ago that such violent games is needed for a console these days.

Gory games is never mature games. Gory/violent games is mostly attractive to younger people because they think its cool. They have mature rating for content, but mature people mostly don't care about these games.

Older people usually prefer funny games like Wii Sports, Tetris etc.

Super Mario 3D World is a game for all ages, while 95% of kids games is not.
Somehow Mario works for all ages, while games like Barbie and Smurfs is only for kids.
Mario Kart is for everyone.. If it was Smurfs Karting, it would be for kids only.
Mario and Disney is almost the only brands which suits the whole family, because they have that kind of "magic".

A Mario/Pikmin game is more mature than games like Ninja Gaiden.
