CaPPa commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Ralek85
Most of these games are not available on other platforms and some of the ones that are (Okami, RE4, HOTD, Muramasa) are arguably better on the Wii anyway.

I picked Fire Emblem, Mario Strikers Charged and Paper Mario. What I'd really like though is Fatal Frame 2 and even more so Fatal Frame 4.

CaPPa commented on New 3DS and Nintendo-Exclusive Games Stay On T...:

The PS4 sells on hype and the good games that might come at some point in the future.

The Wii U doesn't sell because it lacks the hype and people will wait until the new 'insert name of game' is released.

It's crazy that people will buy one system on the potential of what games might come but not another that will definitely have the games coming.

CaPPa commented on Nintendo of America Issues a Fresh Batch of Mo...:

I never got a code, pretty disappointed as I buy a lot of games and I'm a huge Monster Hunter fan. Why not just release the demo on the eShop.

I doubt I'd bother playing the demo anyway though as I've got my MH4U N3DS preordered and will just want to get into the full game.

CaPPa commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

Axelay is a great shmup, it felt like an evolution of Gradius, so it's sad that the evolution didn't continue.

It's even sadder that Konami has fallen so far from greatness and are just a shadow of their former selves.

CaPPa commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

@Chubblings
If you change region you can still play your existing games and buy games but you cannot redownload games from your previous region and lose any credit that you had in that region.

I had to switch my 3DS to US as I had a US points card and that was how it worked for me.

@Superryanworld
I didn't get much use out of the free PS+ games on the PS3 because I'd already bought most of the games I was interested in. It is good for discounts though and it did pay for its time on PS3 just in that alone; but for the PS4 it hasn't been as great yet.

Nintendo has been good to me though, with free online, free games and the dpp for a year.

@Yorumi
There were lots of games on the Wii that supported the Classic Controller, in fact it was probably close to 100 not 2. Nintendo themselves probably published about 10 games that supported it.

As for inferior services/overcharging well online on my Wii U is free and always seems to work; whereas the PS4 is costing us $50 for online and doesn't even work a lot of the time. I know which one offers me better value.

Underground, overground, wombling free
The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we
Making good use of the things that we find
Things that the everyday folks leave behind

I used to love the Wombles, Orinoco was always my favorite.

This game sounds great (even if it doesn't actually have Wombles in it) and I'd definitely pick it up if it releases in NA.

@sillygostly
I don't think that they are on disk unlocks but I'm not sure. The file sizes would be very small anyway because they are just skins.

When I preordered I could only get the Ocarina costumes but now I've finally got the Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess costumes that I really wanted.

CaPPa commented on Review: Duck Hunt (Wii U eShop / NES):

@Grumblevolcano
How does the dpp ending make digital purchases pointless? Admittedly it made retail games more enticing but there are still reasons to get digital, for example Lego Movie was $15 on eShop and $20 in store.

While the Wii remote doesn't offer perfect ADS (without some serious customization) I've never found it as laggy as some people make out, so I bought Duck Hunt and I'm having a blast.

CaPPa commented on UK Retail Survey Highlights the Challenges Fac...:

The UK is pretty much a lost cause for Nintendo as it is Sony country, where it seems like the majority would rather play a steaming turd on a Playstation system than a great game on a Nintendo one.

To be fair though, the UK did always get gouged on console prices and games being late (if appearing at all) and I'm not sure how much it has changed.

@mh1989
For the rest of the world the 3DS is the best selling system with the best lineup of games. Isn't the Vita popular there? I'm not sure how that can offer more value with a higher price, less games and ridiculously expensive memory cards.

CaPPa commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (North America):

@Quorthon
Nintendo's online practices are much safer than Sony's or Microsoft's. The PS3 automatically stores credit card details, as did the 360. Even worse on the 360 was that it was impossible to remove your details unless you owned a PC. The Wii U and 3DS however give you the option to store details or not.

As for how safe your purchases are, well I never lost any Wii or DSi games when I switched to Wii U and 3DS. All of my PS3/360 games are lost in the move to PS4/XBO though, with Sony giving the option to rent games that I already own for as much (or more in some cases) than I paid for them. If Nintendo tried pulling a stunt like that then people would be up in arms, but for some reason give Sony/Microsoft a pass when they do.

@PinkSpider
That's what I want to see too, the screen shots and the video looked pretty good; infact it's a lot closer to the PS4/XBO than I thought it would be, but the outside world will be far more telling.

I'll probably pick it up when the Wii U version is the same price as the other versions.

CaPPa commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

As the first Bayonetta wasn't a huge seller it's not surprising that the sequel would get fairly modest sales too. Add to that the UK is Sony country and it's even less surprising.

It's a shame because Bayonetta 2 is a fantastic game, but the best games don't always equal the best sales. I just hope that it did well in North America as I'd like another sequel too.

CaPPa commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

I had it preordered so availability wasn't an issue. They looked like they had a decent number of copies on the shelves too.

What I've found in the past is that a lot of retailers will only get a few copies of a game. I had to buy Splinter Cell and The Wonderful 101 from the eShop because it was impossible for me to find them in stores when they released (they'd only get about 3 copies in).

I think that it has been damaging for the Wii U because if someone goes into a store it looks like there isn't much in the way of choice for Wii U games, as even though there's a bunch of great games out they're not being displayed on the shelves.

CaPPa commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

I think that there are opportunitys on the Wii U for indie sports titles due to the lack of EA titles. Unfortunately this doesn't look like it will/should be a success.

They need to get back to basics with fun 8-bit style game play but with more modern performance (so a NES or N64 look would be ok if it is smooth scrolling 60fps).

CaPPa commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

@SahashraLA
The PS4 might be a good purchase in a year or two but right now it's pretty lackluster and really seems to be selling on the greatness awaits hype. If it wasn't for DCUO and Netflix ours probably wouldn't be used much until next June. The one cool thing right now is the speed of the console, applications open really quickly (which is why it's being used for Netflix).

Meanwhile the Wii U is on a run of great games. I'm still playing through Hyrule Warriors and have Bayonetta 2, Smash Bros, Captain Toad all coming this year.

CaPPa commented on Curve Studios Outlines Release Details of Four...:

These are all good games. It's a shame they took so long to get to the Wii U though (except Stealth 2 which is new) as they've already given Lone Survivor and TWA away for free on PS+.

I didn't like the first Stealth Inc that much but I'd like to support Curve's Wii U efforts so I'll give it a look. The Swapper is supposed to be very good and I skipped it on PS, so that could be a buy too.

CaPPa commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@GreatPlayer
The original Bayonetta was developed by Platinum as part of a series of games for Sega (along with MadWorld), so Sega has the copywrite on the character. Nintendo just owns the rights for Bayonetta 2.

CaPPa commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@Grimlock_King
Sega has the copywrite on the Bayonetta character but Bayonetta 2 is copywrited by Nintendo. So the only way it could appear on another system is if Nintendo put it on them. Bayonetta 3 could appear on another system though.

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

If you're not into Smash or Bayo then it's pretty slim pickings.

Luckily I am, so I have Bayo 2, Smash and Captain Toad on top of my holidays list. Aside from those (and some eShop titles) there aren't many other games on any systems that excite me that much (I have access to PS3, PS4 and 360). They generally seem to be overhyped and underwhelming; so I've no interest in another round of DA3, COD, ACU etc.

Next year should bring more titles like Xenoblade X, Mario Maker, Devils Third, Splatoon and Batman Arkham Knight (the only PS4 title that interests me so far).

CaPPa commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

6 months late and with no dlc? You've hit the pointless release jackpot with this one Ubisoft!

Watch Dogs isn't even that good of a game to begin with, but maybe I'll pick it up when it's $5 or $10.

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

An 8 seems a little low for the best action game of the last gen, should have been at least a 9 and then Bayonetta 2 can get a 10.

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 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.

@HAL9000
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.
