Ventilator commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Expo Banner Raises Q...:

If this is real, i don't expect it to be a port this time.
It could have been made from scratch like 1 year ago. We know how secretive Nintendo is. Also note that Monster Hunter 3 was a port to get it much quicker to the market.
Also remember that MH3 is the #1 selling third party game on Wii U, and was #1 online game before Mario Kart.

@Alucard83 : Yes, but its probably because of all the negativity this year.
Its not a big deal, because nothing stops us from buying Xbone and PS4 to get those. You should read this below. :)
There is only 3 major third parties coming for Wii U, but the third is unknown to most people. Everyone know of Project Cars and Watch Dogs .

Last week i got confirmation on mail that "Straight Right" in Australia still is porting a major third party game to Wii U.
The same dev made the awesome port of Mass Effect 3, but were also remaking Deus EX 3 for Wii U..Then later ported to PC, 360 and PS3.

Ventilator commented on Scandinavian Gamers Will be Included in the Hy...:

@Tobias95 The 2 local Gamestops near me is promoting Wii U well. One of them have a big Wii U wall which can be seen outside of store. I think they have over 60 Wii U games on shelve at all times with cover fronts facing shop entrance for people to see.
Other stores here mostly have Wii U exclusives and UBI Games in stock at all times. VITA however is nowhere to be found anywhere anymore, and not even 1 year ago.
I'm sure all my local shops will have Hyrule Warriors on release day. Shops prefer to stock Wii U exclusives as main priority.

Ventilator commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

@DefHalan : It may be delayed so they can include all DLC on disc fore free.
A barebone release won't sell much unless its cheap.

But why going head to head with Smash Bros instead of Mario Kart 8?
Is it so they can blame poor sales again?

Why are UBI doing anything they can to sell bad on Wii U anyway, then blame bad sales.

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.

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

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.

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

@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.

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

@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.
