Considering that I've spent less than € 60 to buy Vanquish, Binary Domain, Metal Gear Rising and Shadows of the Damned I'll sure skip this, saving money for Fatal Frame LE!

andreoni79 commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

Once the gaming industry will go digital-only I'll finally have a good reason to stop playing videogames after 25 years. Since you can't sell or borrow a digital game, you are just renting it! DD games sometimes costs more than their physical counterpart so all the "no printing manuals and cds and boxes that have to be delivered by a truck in a shop" is just a crappy joke. Customers just like to be cheated...

Hi Reggie, do you want easy money? Ask Zen Studios to create Nintendo themed pinballs and once you have 10 tables, go retail for € 30.
BTW, why do people still think that the problem with Federation Force is its artstyle?

andreoni79 commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

@IceClimbers
It seems that IGN Italy is a bit wiser than its american counterpart, especially since the only game that had a lower score in Italy is the slightly disappointing (at least for me) Kirby, who received a 7.9 (instead of an 8), while Mario Party got an 8 (6.5), Splatoon an 8.2 (7.9) and Yoshi an 8.2 (7.4).

P.S.
If I'm lucky I'll receive my copy tomorrow, but guys, please don't hate me because saturday I'll leave home for a job in a summer camp. Hope I'll be able to finish it in September...

My biggest concern with the Gamepad now is: will it fall off my hands or will I throw it in the air while playing Fatal Frame? This is the reason why they decided to release it worldwide: many Gamepads will be destroyed because of the scariest game ever!
BTW, crossed fingers for Starfox...

@Alucard83 He wrote "So while it's undemanding to complete almost any stage in less than five minutes, doing so with the full set of collectables in tow requires scrupulous scavenging and sleuthing, and some of the most fiendishly concealed secrets will evade your best search efforts for upwards of half an hour" than complained because game is too basic, with hard to find collectibles and - this is the best part - "Visuals won't impress everyone"... Poor guy...

Yoshi, Fatal Frame and XCX for sure.
I hope Nintendo will put Project Zero 2 on eShop: the controls were quite bad on Wii, but if they switch them to the gamepad I'm sure the fans will download it even if they already have it as I would do.

@OlicityBlows Are you saying that you'd prefer an old turn based Fire Emblem with shiny HD graphics on your WiiU? Well, me too. But at least FE still lives on 3DS... And this looks enough crazy to be interesting. If the combat system works, then I'll have no problem.

BTW, do we need a microphone to play this?

andreoni79 commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

Holy... Why closing the article with Metroid Prime: Federation Force again!? Is this the NEW thing Nintendo needs? A mobile look-a-like multiplayer shooter on an handeld? This is gettin' ridicolous.
Nintendo needs a huge ActionRPG based on Zelda, a huge first person adventure game based on Metroid, an amazing racer based on F-Zero, a huge turn based RPG based on Fire Emblem to attract new gamers and to satisfy the aged ones and finally selling the Wii U.

@ottospooky
You say: "The install base just isn't good enough for AAA titles. Metroid, F-Zero and other franchises really aren't system sellers. Nintendo will not pay high development costs for new games..."
I say: This sucks. If true, it means they just don't believe in theirselves. I bet those who complain for the lack of AAA titles are those who bought the Wii U at launch because they believed in Nintendo.
GC had 2 Metroid. Wii had 2 Metroid and an optimized port of the GC games. Wii U got a straight port of a port without any kind of optimization. This is the reason why Metroid fans saw Pinball and Hunters as harmless spin off and this thing as a fishbone in their throat.

@Shiryu They sure won't stop, but at this rate I fear I'll die before I'll have the chance to play them!
Btw, consider that I recently got a 100% in the last Kirby: it took me less than 5 hours and this sure set me in a pessimistic mood. Let's hope in Yoshi...

@Shiryu My fear is that Nintendo will end up releasing spin off games which need low investments, selling them at full price aside with another wave of amiibos. I know I can refuse to buy them, but if other 2 gamers do than I'll be the minority and I can say goodbye to AAA games.

@BXXL I'm a bit younger than you, but I'm still an aged gamer that love this expensive hobby. With all the bills to pay it's hard to save something for gaming and I hoped that the Wii U, thanks to more power and HD could have been the definitive console, the one I'd played the nintendo classic series in a new shining light and great third party games. Three years later we still don't have a Zelda, a Metroid, a F-Zero and we must consider ourselves lucky if we'll play the first of it next year. It seems that the only way to be not disappointed with Nintendo is having a PS4 next to it...
I even wonder in what they are investing all the money they get from these **** amiibos...

The Event just confirmed that I need another console next to my Wii U, but the very same thing happened in the last three generation too.
The most disappointing thing is how they used Metroid and Zelda brands to sell us badly disguised mobile games.

andreoni79 commented on Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Wii U eShop):

@Varelius Ok, thanks! To pause the action in a permadeath game resolves everything. The game will be mine now!
EDIT: For some reason I was sure this had an unforgivable and unpausable menu system like Dark Souls that would have made it too hard since there are a lot of menus to scroll. Sometimes I wonder why reviewers don't spend some more words in explaining how a game literally works: the dear old reviews in gaming magazines were 2/3 pages long!

andreoni79 commented on Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Wii U eShop):

@Captain_Gonru I'd like to try a demo before spending some money. "Choosing what item you have equipped, switching between food and useful items, mixing things together, or moving items around. All of this and more could have been simplified and streamlined by the Gamepad, but [...] instead you have to press a button to bring up the inventory, scroll through it, close the inventory, then hit the corresponding D-pad direction to perform the action. It becomes tiresome quick and yet players will have to perform these actions over and over as they progress through Don’t Starve: Giant Edition."

Online it's not my style, so I was waiting for news about single player campaign. Now I'll pass. I wonder why it's so expensive in USA...
