CaPPa commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

Not new, it has been there since Splinter Cell Blacklist released.

I doubt that Watch Dogs will release now, it's more likely that Ubisoft just can't be bothered to remove it from Uplay. From what I've experienced of the game on the PS3 it won't be much of a loss though.



CaPPa commented on North American Club Nintendo Replenishes Its P...:

I was excited when I read the headline as I thought the rewards were back but it's just the same 5 rubbish ones. I miss the days of there being 20+ physical rewards, I want my Mario shoelaces or games cases back. =(



CaPPa commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

Revelations sold the most on 3DS.

I think part of what made the game good was the fact that it was designed for the 3DS. They likely had to confine the environments more due to less power, which made for some tense claustrophobic gameplay. The switch to more powerful systems could result in larger environments and lead back to the 3rd person shooter influence that has made the RE games rather mediocre in recent years.

So I won't be buying Revelations 2, in fact the only Crapcom game I can see me buying in the future is MH4U.



CaPPa commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I'll definitely be picking up a new XL, hopefully there'll be a MH4U themed bundle.

It's a shame that they still haven't fixed the screen scratching issue though.

With the extra C Pad and shoulder buttons maybe it could double as a Wii U controller.



CaPPa commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I don't buy the Assassin's Creed games, not because I'm a Nintendo gamer but because they are s#*t. I hated AC, AC2 and AC3 (I gave it a chance to see what the ships were like but regretted spending $15 on it); so I wouldn't bother with any more of the series.

I did buy Zombi U, Splinter Cell and Rayman Legends though.

I think the PS3 version only overtook the Wii U one after it hit a price drop.



CaPPa commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

Considering that Ubisoft boasted how easy and cheap it was to port from the 360 to the Wii U they should be able to bring the Crew across fairly easily. It's probably better that they don't though as it probably wouldn't do the system justice.

Ubisoft does make some good games (I enjoyed Rayman Legends and SC Blacklist) but they also make a lot of questionable decisions. Still they are better than EA (although anyone is better than those doucebags).

The whole 'next gen' thing seems to be mostly hype and I'm not buying into it. I haven't seen a single game that has really shown me anything new and the systems are like mid level PCs; so I'm sticking with Wii U/PS3/3DS/PC for the time being.



CaPPa commented on Goodbye Galaxy Games Reveals First Teaser Imag...:

I've really liked all of Hugo's games so far, they have great ideas in them and above all his games are fun.

It'd be easy to write off this FPS purely based on the visuals, but the fact that this is a game by Goodbye Galaxy Games on the Wii U means that it's a day one buy for me.



CaPPa commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

I'm sold on Hyrule Warriors now.

So for 2014 I think I'll be getting:
Hyrule Warriors
Bayonetta 2
Smash Bros 3DS
Persona Q
Captain Toad Treasure Tracker
Smash Bros Wii U
An Amiibo or two (Samus for sure)

I'll also consider Watch Dogs (if it's better than the PS3 version), Sonic Boom and Project Cars; although I should really have enough games to play already.



CaPPa commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

I don't think that I could play RE Remake so I definitely couldn't play RE Remake-Remake. The reason being that I'm arachnophobic and had to play parts of the PSX original with my eyes shut.

It's stupid that it isn't coming to the Wii U though as it should be an easy profit on most platforms. Capcom have been pretty clueless for a long time though, which is reflected by their current financial situation. So far it looks like the only Capcom game that I'll be buying in the future is MH4U.



CaPPa commented on Review: GAIABREAKER (Wii U eShop):

Nano Assault is definitely a shoot em up. It isn't onrails, aside from some tunnel sections inbetween levels. Onrails doesn't disqualify a game as a shmup anyway, S&P2 was the best shooter of the 7th gen for me.



CaPPa commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (North America):

Little Inferno is definitely worth buying for $4.99.

As to how much of a game is there, well all you really do is burn things to get money to buy more things to burn. There are combinations of items to work out (some are incredibly vague) and you progress through a story (which is also very vague). It is unlike any other game, despite the rather light gameplay and story it becomes a real thought provoking experience.



CaPPa commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I'd rather there was a straight eShop credit option (say $15) so that you could buy whatever game you wanted. For people who buy a lot of games there might not be many options, the only games that I don't already own are Game & Wario and Dr Luigi.

The switch to digital only rewards and the reduction of gifts on Club Nintendo make me think that Nintendo is beginning to phase out these rewards. Perhaps they'll switch to the accumulative game discount that they talked about before.



CaPPa commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Sum...:

Bayonetta 1+2, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad and Super Smash Bros. U are all day one purchases for me.  I'm not really in to racing sims, but I'll keep an eye on Project CARS anyway. I'm also interested in Lego Batman 3, but could wait for a sale on it. Same goes for Sonic Boom. I'll wait for a review of Watch_Dogs, as it looked pretty bad on the PS3, so it'll be interesting to see how it turns out on the Wii U.

The games on the Wii U are certainly stacked up for the final 4 months of the year.



CaPPa commented on Feature: Braving the Queue At Nintendo's Best ...:

I had a terrible day at the Smash event. I'd planned on taking 2 kids (aged 5 and 9) but ended up having to take a 1 year old baby too. We queued up for about an hour, were about another 15 or 20 minutes from getting to play but then the baby puked everywhere and we had to leave. So I didn't get to play Smash and they didn't have much swag for the kids either.



CaPPa commented on Free Copy of Bayonetta Comes as a Separate Dis...:

I wish we were getting a disk too, it'd make my purchase much easier. At the moment I'm stuck between digital and physical; I'd like digital so I'd have both icons for the games together, but I'd also like the box on my shelf. Maybe I'll just buy both.



CaPPa commented on Mario Kart Month: The Developers Who Tried To ...:

Nothing matches up to Mario Kart for me. Sure other games have had more features, but they lack a certain intangible quality that Nintendo games always seem to have. It's the same with platformers, the Nintendo ones just 'feel' better.



CaPPa commented on Download Developer Hits a "Brick Wall" When Tr...:

I'm not sure why an indie dev wouldn't know about the licensing fee being waived, because I knew about it and I doubt that I go as in depth as a proper dev should. If you don't know about your own business then you've got problems.

As for Nintendo paying to bring indie games to the Wii U, sure if they want to make it an exclusive, but if it's multiplatform then there isn't much to gain from it.



CaPPa commented on Guacamelee! Developer Stirring Up A New Title,...:

From the video it looked reminiscent of Okami's celestial brush mechanic (a game that screams to be on Wii U).

I've heard good things about DrinkBox Studios games, so I'll keep an eye on Severed. I'm also going to pick up Guacamelee! when it releases on the Wii U (I didn't get it on PS3 due to games not transferring to PS4).



CaPPa commented on Details Emerge of a Cancelled Nintendo-Exclusi...:

I think that The Phantom Menace is really underrated. It isn't the greatest Star Wars movie by any stretch but it isn't awful. Anakin and Jar Jar were poorly conceived characters but Qui Gon, Obi Wan, Padme and Darth Maul were all great. The soundtrack was really good too, with Duel of the Fates being amongst the best Star Wars music.

I'd have liked a Darth Maul game. The Force Unleashed series were average games (although better on Wii) with terrible storylines. I hated how Vader was beaten and captured; reducing him from the most feared villain in the galaxy to being second fiddle to a ridiculously overpowered clone. So I doubt that a Maul storyline could have been any worse.



CaPPa commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

Project M always seemed counter productive to me. The premise seemed to be to make Brawl more like Melee because Melee was a better competitive tournament game; but modding Brawl means it could never be a real tournament game because it's modded. So in the end it's just a fun little mod but its not actually 'fixing' anything.



CaPPa commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edit...:

The reason that they cancelled the Origins dlc was because people didn't buy it on Wii U. Then those people say "I'm not buying Origins because they cancelled the dlc". They have no right to complain because they were the cause, I should be complaining though because I actually did buy the game and season pass. I also bought Blackgate on the 3DS.

Origins is underrated imo. It has a good story, good boss battles, good detective sequences; in fact it actually does a lot of things better than Arkham City did. It doesn't feel quite as polished as the previous games but it's still a good game. I found Blackgate to be a bit flat though (not because it's 2.5D) and I haven't even got around to finishing it yet.



CaPPa commented on Little Inferno Has Sold A Million But Gamers D...:

Little Inferno is a wonderful experience and is very thought provoking.

I thought that the meaning was reasonably clear, but only if you played the game in its entirety.

It's very different from WOG but it feels like its from the same world by the writing and visual style. Definetely worth picking up when its on sale (I got it for a bargin $5).



CaPPa commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are In For March:

Why is the North American Club Nintendo selection so terrible compared to Japan or europe? It used to be a lot better selection than they have now too.

I'm still waiting on the 3DS XL charging docks to come back.



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

While I do think that Nintendo should help more in marketing 3rd party games it wouldn't have made much sense for them to put their resources behind a year old port.

I bought Most Wanted U, but I doubt that I'll be buying any of Ward's future games as I'm not getting a PS4/XBO yet and don't want to buy digital content on PS3/360 if I can help it. His attitude doesn't sound good either, so if it's not on Wii U then forget it.



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

I'm disappointed that Arkham Knight doesn't appear to be headed to the Wii U but not surprised seeing as Origins had its dlc cancelled due to poor sales.

I do plan on picking up a PS4 in the future but I'm waiting for some games that I actually want (there's only Batman, Kingdom Hearts 3 and maybe The Order at the moment) and for PS+ to start giving away good games. Then I'll have the PS4 with the free games and will just buy games on the Wii U/3DS.

I own all 4 and I'd say it goes:
Mario 3D World>DK Tropical Freeze>Rayman Legends>NSMBU
DK is one of the best looking games on the Wii U too and definitely the best looking 2D platformer.



CaPPa commented on Airtight Games Feels That Murdered: Soul Suspe...:

"In all honesty, all the Wii U games I've ever played, the only good ones are the ones that are made specifically for [the Wii U]. And this just doesn't fit."

I read that as their game is going to be bad. It doesn't surprise me as most of the multiplats that have skipped the Wii U have been rather mediocre (for example, most recently Thief).

Hopefully Ghost Trick will be a DS game that gets onto the Wii U, as that is probably 100x better than Murdered Soul will be.
