adrenochrome commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

i dont get why it's so difficult to get releases for different regions, except maybe for little independant devs with low budget and low visibility
but here, the title is already existing, there's only the translation work and the approval/validation costs for the various peggi, both costs should be easily covered even with poor sales in the new regions
where/what is really the obstacle to internationalisation ?

adrenochrome commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

@LDXD
i wasnt refering directly to the quality of the games ( there will always exist very good games on every platforms) but i was referring to the good games ratio. wikipedia reports :
1222 wii games, 793 ps3 games, 958 xbox360 games
now if you substract all the shovelware and all the multiplateform games( which are technically inferior to the other versions ), unfortunately the ratio of good game per wii is lower.
i fear even if the wiiu become the top-seller, the good games ratio wont be the best :/

adrenochrome commented on Nintendo Issues Full Statement Regarding Uncen...:

nothing should be done from nintendo or from joysound
if parents want to prevent their kids to be deadly shocked, they should keep them locked in an empty room : that's the only way to avoid them watching tv, listening to radio, using computers&consoles or hearing people singing in the street. any form of culture(news, museums, debates,....) should be avoided too

most wanted u was looking nice but was really boring, i regret to have put money in this old game port (in this area, ducktales is much better in every aspects)

i cant see why ea would want ports from old games to sell well, and they dare to use these number to justify their lazyness and their incompetency

adrenochrome commented on Bethesda: The Time For Convincing Publishers A...:

i dont understand his point of view, why would he want to be involved in earlier stage of console creation ?
i dont think his opinion had an impact on the sony or m$ console development
even more if their games are really generic and pc-targeted, so they are only ported to consoles and dont use them on a state-of-the-art level

does it mean that bethesda is involved in early windows, amd&nvidia gpu dev stages ?

adrenochrome commented on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Downloa...:

i'll never buy a game that's available physically through eshop :

  • price is not attractive
  • the product is not linked to my account (i my wiiu get stolen or broken i'll lose my game)
  • once i'll be finished with the game i wont be able to offer/lend it to someone else
    still the same remarks as the first day of the wiiu :/

ps: the size comparison mean nothing to me : compressing methods have surely evolved, more and more 3d things are handled by the gpu, 3d is like vector 2d which mean it can be rendered at any resolution especially for a cellshading game relying more on post-effects than polygons dots

adrenochrome commented on Ubisoft Delayed Rayman Legends On Wii U In Fea...:

ubisoft is only looking for money, creators dont think in sale quantities
eg: shenmue sales were bad but it's still a major piece of gaming history and i'm sure their creators are proud of it
with ubisoft behavior on rayman, the only thing that is sure is that is will sell even worst than if it was released when it was originally planned

adrenochrome commented on Poll: Wii U Hardware Revisions and Accessories...:

i dont get why people are asking for more storage
here, the white wiiu is at 230€ and the first black is at 320€
what's the problem about getting a white wiiu for 230€ and adding a 1Tb 2.5" usb hd (which will cost less than 90€) ?

adrenochrome commented on Children Of The Sun, Take Note: The Mysterious...:

the original animation is so great ! full of adventures and mystery
there's so much potential for a video game
but the new version of the anime has very few in common with the original one :/ especially the gfx look so bad (Esteban face is barely recognizable :((( )
I only hope the team of the new anime wont be involved in the game

@Damo
currently the comparison is not valid : the games are not the same, the prices are not the same
you may think that tomorow all dev will go where the money is but i dont : i cant imagine fire emblem, animal crossing or zombiu on phones, the experience cant be the same
the devs wont go to phone because it's not the same money, it's another, diffenrent source of money

adrenochrome commented on Hardware Review: MaxPlay Wii U In-Car Adapter:

what's the must-buy feature of this adapter ?

  • cigarette lighter socket outputs 12v
  • WiiU take 12v in input
    ( WiiU provide 4 usb ports and do the convertion from from 12 to 5v for the usb )
    2 wires between the plugs arn't enough ?

@PinkSpider

flash player is still outdated, videos from tudou.com cant be watched
and tests from http://www.chemgapedia.de/vsengine/info/en/help/requirements/flash.html

adrenochrome commented on Wii U System Update Is Now Live:

10 to go to settings, 20 to go back to main menu
15 to go to eshop, 2 to go back to main menu
goong to downloads take nearly 1 or 2 secs, going back to main menu take the same 1-2 secs

adrenochrome commented on Iwata's First Post On Miiverse Reconfirms Redu...:

very good news, ~30secs to wait to acces settings is unacceptable

another good improvement would be to add an option to : switch off at end of download while screen blanking on gamepad, currently you cant do both at the same time

ho.. and allow auto-download of game updates instead of forcing us to start them manually and wait

adrenochrome commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

i'll never download a title that is available on disc as long as Nintendo maintain the stupid hardware-tied system
i can admit that Nintendo forbid us to resell games but it's a shame not to be allowed to change hardware

adrenochrome commented on Chasing Aurora Update Now Available on Wii U e...:

@klautrec : thanks for your answer, i'll try this trick

i have another question :

  • into the gamepad settings there's an option to blank the screen
  • into the download manager there's an option to switch off the wiiu at end of the downloads
    is there a way to get both at the same time ? (screen blanking & switch off when finished)

adrenochrome commented on Crystal Dynamics Explains Why Tomb Raider Isn'...:

it seems that the wiiu gamepad is becoming new recurent excuse :((

they could at least put all the ingame maps&menus&huds on the gamepad with little efforts (for me that's already enough for a much better experience using the gamepad)

@ UnseatingKDawg
it's not a matter of game playing, look at this scenario :
going to settings -> wait 30sec, going back to main menu -> wait 30sec, launch browser -> wait 30sec, going back to main menu -> wait 30sec, going to eshop -> wait 30sec, going back to main menu -> wait 30sec

what would you say if you had to wait 30sec on your laptop before going to settings or before launching a web browser ?
it sound evident that the wii-u can do better :)

when you know exactly what you want to do, you can reduce the amount of 30sec waits, but when exploring everything -eg : the first time you unbox your wiiu- some could be easily shocked

@AlphaIchimoru
it's not a matter of xbox/playstation being wrong, it's a matter of lazy ports :
ok this time the port was fine-tuned (opposed to batman and cullofduty), but the WiiU regarding his capacities diserve something better than xbox/playstation, if not, then what would be the interest of the WiiU ?

adrenochrome commented on Unepic Adventuring Onto Wii U eShop in 2013:

despite being a huge fan of indie eshop content i wont get this game if his content is denatured.
Nintendo did setup a restrictive systeme for mature contents so they should allow indie content to use it instead of trying to censor the products :(
