Watchful_Eye commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube):

"Melee more balanced then Brawl!? I'm sorry, but you are completely wrong there. Melee has some of the most unbalanced characters I’ve played in a fighting game (well, at least compared to other fighters I’ve played, which is not much). For one thing, some of the characters like Jigglypuff and Pichu are completely useless because they’re very weak."

I just have to correct this.. on a very high level of play, jigglypuff is one of the best characters. One of the best melee players of the world - he is called "Mango" - plays jigglypuff and Ill promise you that you wouldnt have even a slight chance against him (me neither, of course) ;-) .

Here is a youtube link of tournament finals a year ago:

Watchful_Eye commented on Electronic Arts Less Than Happy With Wii Sales:

I'd agree with the EA complaints usually, but this year, EA has done quite a really good job on the Wii. Grand Slam Tennis, NFS:Nitro, Boom Blox, Tiger Woods and Dead Space are all games where a lot of effort has been put in it (I didnt play some of these games yet, but all of them made a good impression on me).

Watchful_Eye commented on High Voltage Working on Conduit Glitches:

Oh fine, I just canceled my preorder two days ago just not to pay for ANOTHER bugged game from Sega after Virtua Tennis 2009.

Would be fine if they'd do something, Ill buy it immediately when the glitches are fixed.

Watchful_Eye commented on Review: Virtua Tennis 2009 (Wii):

Just to warn you: I was someone who had high expectations of this game and really wanted to like it. I even posted in this board how I cant wait to play and stuff like that. But my level of disappointment raises the more I play it, really.

The value of options are great and all, but the controls are awful when you want to play this game on a "deeper" level. Its just a trial and error-thing if advanced shots like Drop Shots, Lobs or even Slices work, and I am telling you this after spending lots of hours in training mode. At the beginning I thought its more a thing of learning the controls, since it is pretty easy to make precise standard topspin shots, but for now Im quite sure it isnt. I know its arcade tennis, but still I dont want to have to make the same poo (erm.. I mean shot) over and over again.

The funny thing is that I dont seem to be the only one with these problems when I play against others. I win around 70% of my matches online and have pretty good stats - by almost only doing standard-topspin-swings (these work very fine and are even easy to place correctly). Actually I didnt play anyone online who made advanced shots with Motion+ and gave me the impression he knew what he was doing.

I cant tell that I didnt have any fun at all though, Id rate it with 5 or 6 points in the moment - but for now I am really sure that GST is the better choice, Im gonna buy it soon probably.

It obviously a thing of taste. Ill get VT tomorrow :) , since I like the graphics and the more action-focused gameplay. But I also like some aspects of GST, it is really a tough choice.

Watchful_Eye commented on Wii Sports Resort to Launch Internationally in...:

"Let's think about this: The game will come bundled with ONE MotionPlus add-on. Most people are excited about the multi-player "sword fighting" game which will require TWO MotionPlus add-ons. ...Inventory problem?"

If Nintendo is intelligent, they'll do it in the same way as they did with Wii Play: They sell it seperately on the one hand and together with Wii Sports Resort for a (slightly) higher price on the other.

By the way, I read about 8 different events in a print magazine.

Watchful_Eye commented on Review: Texas Hold'em Tournament (WiiWare):

@Shortay: I think it is already pretty good for a 500 points game to involve an online mode with different tournaments, a kind of "ranking system", and a Mii Support with showable facial expressions and different clothing. It has its weaknesses, but a 6th point hadnt hurt I think ;-) .

I think we already played 2 or 3 games together.. my name is "Torben" .

I agree with you that there are not enough players online, I always play more or less the same people - you are a perfect example ;-) .

Watchful_Eye commented on Review: World of Goo (WiiWare):

This game reminds me a lot of "Lemmings", which I played onm a 286 at my uncle when I was a child :D . He was a genius in that game and he probably also would be one in World of Goo. But by now, he'd never buy a Wii.. D:

To the game itself - it is a nice little idea which was made with a deep love for the details. Still I dont think that it deserves a 10, though. But I bought the game today, so my opinion is still "open to change".

Watchful_Eye commented on Texas Hold'em Tournament:

Hmm I have to add something negative Im afraid.. in the time I played, there was 2 times a kind of bug (different kinds of bugs?) which stopped the game in moving on..

At the first time, the game just didnt start when enough players were there and it should do so.. at the second time, we were already in the "poker room" and we didnt get new cards after an opponent left the game. The connection was still there though, we made annoyed faces with our Miis towards each other ;-) . Probably, the game cannot handle it if someones connection breaks up in the wrong moment, or whatever. But maybe I was just unlucky that stuff like that happened 2 times in between a short period of time.

Watchful_Eye commented on Texas Hold'em Tournament:

I'd give a 6, I guess. The presentation is relatively bad, but the gameplay mechanics work pretty well. Theoretically, you could just play any of these free online poker games for pc instead, but I just like to sit at my TV, to control the game per Wiimote and to see my Mii playing ;-) . If you feel the same, its worth 500 points, but its not a "must buy".

By the way, I got the impression that only a few people got this game yet, I always have to wait quite a long while until an online game starts - and when it starts, I often play against people I played against before.

Watchful_Eye commented on Texas Hold'em Tournament:

Now I got it and Id say it IS half way decent, just what you expect from a poker game.
The graphics are relatively ugly, but I don't see any major flaws if you forget about that.

"Why don't they make a poker game that uses the fact that the wii remotes have a speaker in them, you just press a button and the remote can whisper your two hole cards to you. You could play with up to four players then."

If I want to play "offline" with friends, I just take the card game ;-)

"I was HOPING for something half way decent.."

Is it not half way decent?
I'll get 2000 Points Tomorrow and plan to buy "World of Goo" and this game.. But I cannot find any reviews yet..
