banacheck commented on Weirdness: This Super Mario Maker Level is a F...:

I love game's like this that give you the tools to make your own levels or games, I am not sure how in-depth this game is as I don't own it. But LBP people made some unbelievable game's, levels, calculator's you name it, MM even hired one of it's players because his creations where that good. I am really looking forwards to Dreams as it has powerful creation tools, in-fact it's more or less a game engine designed for everyone to use. They have even used it to make Dreams itself, you'll be able to make anything you can Dream-up from level's, game's, films etc. So it'll be interesting to see what people will make, looking forwards to it.

MM says that the thousands of characters in its game already were all made on the PS4 — not in a separate development tool. Its artists and designers used the same system players will use to make everything seen in the gameplay demos so far. The ambition is to literally allow players to represent their deepest, strangest ideas in glorious, easy-to-build 3D and take one of the most tedious things in life — people explaining their dreams — and turn it into one of the most compelling new ideas in gaming.

I don't have a problem with remasters if done right updated graphics frame rate etc, like Uncharted collection, Tearaway Unfolded, & Wind Waker HD. But remasters should not be price as a full new game, the Uncharted collection was done right because it had 3 games for the price of one. Gravity Rush has been done right because it's only £24.99 with all its DLC, this is what Nintendo needs to be doing also regarding pricing. Anything from £19.99 - £29.99 depending on what it includes, is fair especially if they've spent there time on the remaster.



banacheck commented on Soapbox: If Nintendo Took On Virtual Reality, ...:

Speaking with BBC, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai confirmed that over 200 different developers are currently working with the PlayStation VR headset on roughly 100 different titles. That kind of support for a piece of hardware that hasn't even been released is almost unheard of, and it should bode well for anyone who purchases PlayStation VR when it launches later this year.

VR needs software support if it's ever going to take off, as you can see above Sony already has over 200 developer's signed-up to support VR. This is one area I cannot see Nintendo doing very well in, Nintendo already struggle's with 3rd party support for there console never mind a VR headset. There is also another factor Nintendo would need to consider, VR is not going to take off over night something Sony & others are fully aware of. The only time Nintendo would jump in is when its cheap enough to make & to sell to families, which again is a fair few years off yet.



banacheck commented on Nintendo Is "Looking At" Virtual Reality, But ...:

I don't think even Nintendo know what they are doing, first they publically dismiss VR by saying "it just isn't any fun". & now thay are saying thay are looking into VR, no wonder investors are not investing in Nintendo.



banacheck commented on Talking Point: Online Gaming Can't Recreate th...:

I think people also forget online has brought new ways of play Demons Souls/Dark Souls being an amazing example of this, it blurred the lines of online & single player. Dragon's Dogma another game that used online in a amazing original way, and I am sure we are going to see other games using online in some original way.



banacheck commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2016:

It's a pretty underwhelming list for 2016 hopefully more games get announced, Zelda Wii U is my most wanted game on my Wii U for 2016. In a way it's for the best as 2016 for my PS4 is going to be amazing.



banacheck commented on Talking Point: Five Key Challenges Nintendo Fa...:

I don't get why hardcore Nintendo fans don't know or don't want to believe Nintendo isn't competing with Sony or Microsoft, Nintendo is a family console who see's themselves as toy makers Nintendo themselves have stated this more times then I can remember. This means Nintendo is going to do there own thing like thay have been doing, new ways to play over powerful hardware. If people think Nintendo going to release a hybrid portable/console as powerful if not more powerful than the PS4, then you cannot know Nintendo as well as you thought you did. Nintendo will want to make it's hardware which is profitable from day one which is also affordable for families, there selling point will be uniqueness in the way you play over powerful hardware. This time around isn't going to be as easy as last time as the PS3 & Xbox360 where almost at the end of there life cycles, almost 10 year old hardware. Not hard to make a more powerful hardware that is also affordable for families, yet Nintendo still sold its hardware (Wii U) at a small loss while still costing a pretty price for families. Also Nintendo has other problem's regarding software, sure it has it's own software with droughts in between but that's where 3rd party fills the gap. Also if I am not mistaken Nintendo stated themselves that thay underestimated HD development, and with more powerful hardware cost & resources for development have to come from somewhere.



banacheck commented on Minecraft Finally Digs Its Way Onto the Wii U ...:

@Raptor78 Says:

Now when this fails to burn up the charts and bring in the big money who are they going to blame?

Do you really think it's been ported over to the Wii U to make £££? they know full well Minecraft on the Wii U isn't going to set the charts on fire. This is more about getting Minecraft to Nintendo fans, & probably the reason why it's $10 more is to try & make the money back for its port as they know full well it isn't going to sell loads.



banacheck commented on Video: New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Aims to Bring ...:

I see the sheep are out in force. The game doesn't like nearly as bad as some are making it out to be, the gameplay itself looks really good with a rock solid 60fps, & its got plenty of game modes. Definitely be buying it come Feb...



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

It's bye bye Nintendo if they go digital-only Microsoft have already proved millions are not ready for a digital only future, otherwise Microsoft would of have not pulled a 180 & the XboxOne would be disc-less as we speak.



banacheck commented on Oddworld Inhabitants Is No Longer Working On W...:


It has been known for a few years now that it actually costs Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo nothing to allow you to play online, and chat.

Could you please go on to tell us who pays for Sony's, Nintendo & Microsoft online infrastructure? If these companies don't pay these costs themselves.



banacheck commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

It will be very ironic if it sells well & gets a sequel on the other systems. Also the Gamepad features where far from ground breaking as others would have you believe. I think no body is going to notice them missing if the truth be told.



banacheck commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

Hopefully Nintendo have got there head on this time around, & have actual games in development already for NX, & of course speaking to 3rd parties. I agree about Smash Bros being a launch game, it could be like you said an Ultra Smash Bros with all DLC etc. This would work very well with many not owning a Wii U, they could also do the same with Zelda U.



banacheck commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Wether your into the PS4, XboxOne or the Wii U this is a great loss for gaming overall, it is a massive shame that he was only 55. Iwata legend will always live on through Nintendo's Hardware & Software, & will massively be missed, R.I.P. Mr Iwata.



banacheck commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

Its sad it's not coming to the Wii U & it's also reasonable of why its not, definitely will be picking this up on the PS4. Don't gamers play games nowadays? I find it hard to believe people on here love games with some of these comments.



banacheck commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

Its not surprising with some of the games that have been releasing lately on other formats, and all you'll see in the charts next-week is The Witcher 3. It's good to see Super Smash Bros doing well with Monster Hunter, also the delay didn't help.



banacheck commented on Digital Foundry Gives Its Take on Watch Dogs f...:


Most people go in guns blazing shooter style and will quikly go back to GTA V but when you like the stealth approach you wil learn to appreciate the way this game works. Hacking the environment. Taking down guards one by one. Planing an ambush on a criminal convoy. I love this stuff

Glad you enjoyed Watch Dogs, I also enjoy Watch Dogs but own the PS4 version. I am like you by playing Watch Dogs stealthily, it's a lot more rewarding gameplay wise. Slowly taking out guards one by one, getting in and out unseen and only shooting if I have no other option. With all the stuff to do in Watch Dogs, the digital trips, side quests etc, I real enjoyed Watch Dogs.



banacheck commented on Keiji Inafune Discusses the Indie Experience i...:

In 2010 Keiji Inafune announced that "Japanese gaming is dead,” at the GDC Keiji Inafune was asked if the situation in Japan has improved he said.  “To be completely honest, not in a big way." This is what this speech at the GDC is about, it's ashame but thay've still got along way to go to get back to there glory days.



banacheck commented on Electronic Arts CEO Discusses The Company's Pl...:

3D VR two totally different things, the Virtual Boy failing not surprised technology has come a long way since then. It all depends on price and software, also VR will be a try before you buy sort of thing at your local Game or something. It not like it'll be shown at E3 with new software much like how Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo does it. The marketing is what's going to make it or break it, because how do you market something you cannot show over a TV?



banacheck commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

What i would say to dev's that put passion into there games is totally drop Nintendo, a business is a two way thing not one. Anyway in this day and age 3rd party's don't need Nintendo, there are plenty of other platforms that actually cares about there own platform.



banacheck commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


Well, it's so you could keep playing your PS4 games while you're out. It isn't a cross-buy deal, Killzone isn't downloaded to both your Vita and your PS4.

Cross-buy deals are game's you get both for the PS4 & PSVita, you talking about streaming Resogun work's perfectly find. But streaming comes down to how good "your" internet connect is, and this is explained to people in black & white.

And you mean the PS4 is essentially truned into a game server and the PS Vita into a client.

there are PS3 games with cross-buy too. That's a different thing, it's awesome, but different.

Cross-buy is on all Sony's platforms, PS3,PS4 & PSVita and i agree its awesome.



banacheck commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


If the second screen is such a waste of time then why is it one of Sony's main selling points now for connectivity between the Vita and PS4?

The main selling point with the PS4 & PSVITA, is so you can carry-on playing your game on the move while not on the PS4. One of the reasons for cross-buy again is so you can carry-on playing the game where you left off on the move,



banacheck commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I'm very happy it's an next-gen exclusive & not being held back by the PS3/Xbox360, cannot wait to play it especially as it's developed by Rocksteady. And for the first time you'll be able to drive the Batmobile, it not coming to the Wii U isn't surprising reslly.



banacheck commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

I agree if a game is not being made for the system you own, you should 1) if you want to play the game bad enough buy the system it's on, but let's be fair no one in there right mind is going to do that for one game. 2) So stop whining about it, and the same goes for the people whining about Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts3 & Bayonetta.



banacheck commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

Hopefully Sony gets more stock out fast, the PS4 has sold around 3X what the PS3 did on launch. PS4 has done in 3 months what the WiiU did in just over a year, when it comes to lifetime sale's.

There is a difference between constructive criticism and the flaming "fanboy" remarks. If you choose to do the latter, you may be banned. -Lz



banacheck commented on Talking Point: NFC And The GamePad Can Succeed...:

I love LBP for that kind of thing, some of the levels made by people is unbelievable. Everything from 2D shooter to racers, platformers. Game's that you wouldn't think where possible to make, Mod Nation Racers was another really good one which is on the PS+ this week for the PSVITA.



banacheck commented on Console Wars Book Paves The Way For Movie Writ...:

I loved Tazmania, Ecco, Sonic, Aladdin on the MegaDrive, but I also loved Street Fighter, Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country on the SNES thay both had some excellent games. I used to play Street Fighter a lot with my friend and his brother, winner stays-on good times.
