cornishlee commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

I couldn't care one way or another about character DLC but as I've said before an adventure mode, even at £20 or so, would encourage me to pick up the game. If the dual-release and restrictions of the 3DS were one reason for not including a proper single-player mode this time around then surely Wii U-only DLC would get around that problem?

cornishlee commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Sadly, I won't be getting this. I was excited when it was announced but the lack of a good single player mode means I won't get as much playtime out of it as Brawl. I have enough trouble persuading my girlfriend to play Mario Kart. Of course, we've known for a while that there wasn't an adventure mode included this time but I still hoped to see something about the single player experience in the review. I guess there simply isn't one.

Still, I'm going to keep hoping for an adventure mode DLC. If that arrives then I'll buy the game.

I can't see Watch Dogs selling anything other than abysmally. Hopefully Ubisoft realise their own role in any poor sales. That said, it's great to see that they've offered the DLC, seeing as that's a common complaint for other games on the system... not that I'll be buying...

@Punished_Boss_84 @conman2012

Exactly right. I was one of those idiots that fell for Nintendo's proclamation of strong third party support for the Wii U ahead of its launch. The first games I bought were Darksiders 2 and Ninja Gaiden 3. I think it was actually over a year of owning it before I bought a first party game.

I eventually saw the error of my ways though and when it came to replace my laptop earlier this year I went the extra mile with a custom-build and now plug that into the TV via HDMI for all of those 3rd party releases I want. Not ideal but it gets the job done.

Does Nintendo not take note of holidays and traditions around the world? Delay it by 24 hours and more people in the UK will get your message (or does this just mean that Nintendo has given up on the UK market?).

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

Well, I bought a copy on Saturday but that was download, so it won't count...

I'd love to see more information on how digital sales reflect physical sales on Nintendo's platforms now, and how this varies according to genre, etc.

cornishlee commented on Activision Retail Titles Are Coming To The Wii...:

Hopefully it does signify some kind of attempt to offer more support in future. They can't really believe that these will sell well at full price so long after launch.

I can't actually say that I'm interested in any Activision titles but it's good news nevertheless. The last disc I bought for my Wii U was Darksiders 2 and I don't plan on buying any more. Even that title I'd probably buy again as a download if they reduced it.

@sinalefa Glad you liked it and I'm sure it didn't take itself too seriously - that's pretty much a Platinum hallmark. There are things I wish I could like which ruin so many games for me - superheroes, sci-fi, guns - but I don't and that's OK. There are plenty of things I like that others don't and I shouldn't really expect to enjoy every game should I? Not even every game from one studio.

cornishlee commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

The superhero thing in W101 was a massive obstacle to my enjoyment of that game. So much so that after the demo I gave up any ideas of buying it (pre-release I'd veered from scepticism to enthusiasm). MadWorld was simply brilliant though and Bayonetta 2 was a main reason behind my decision to buy the console all the way back in 2012.

cornishlee commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (Europe):

Does anyone know if there's a time limit on the Bayonetta offer? I'll be getting both games but I won't be playing them this week, so...

For anyone in the UK interested in buying the games digitally, the cheapest way that I know of right now is to buy B2 from the game.co.uk website. They currently have download codes for £32.99 (the same price they're charging for the disc version). Knowing how eshop purchases have worked in the past this should still activate the Bayonetta discount.

@AlexOlney As others have pointed out, I think you mean 'It's safe to say that Nintendo's Wii U hasn't been universally acclaimed by gamers and developers alike, but then again what console has?' As in 'what console has been universally acclaimed?'

Sorry, I don't mean to be a pedant and I know I can get annoyed when people correct my grammar but I think you'll agree that you lost track of the subject in that sentence. To claim otherwise is absurd, just own up and correct it.

I have no children and no interest in buying toys. (Yes, I know some adults will buy them for themselves, I'm not judging them). My concern then, is whether these figurines will give an advantage to someone playing the game that gives them a fuller experience. If so, I might just start to stay away from Nintendo games. (Someone must want a Wii U, right? Wouldn't hurt to bring some money into the house for something.)

cornishlee commented on Review: Super Toy Cars (Wii U eShop):

I loved Micro Machines but that was what, twenty years ago? So maybe my memories are rose tinted. I can't remember what the handling was like in that but I don't recall it being like what's described here.

Anyway, that music precludes a purchase as it is.

cornishlee commented on Philips Claims Wii And Wii U Infringe Two Of I...:

Weird. As others have pointed out, the technologies described in this article don't match the Wii/WiiU but do sound similar to those in rival products. Meanwhile, the Wii launched in 2007 and they're doing this in 2014?

Hardly makes sense for such a big company to do this unless they're pretty sure of themselves so I can't help but wonder if I'm missing something.

Best Wii U week in a long while.

And the first time (I think) the the home console update has been listed after the handheld. Probably too easy to read too much into that.

@TheRavingTimes
That's a very good point. I'm not sure I'd say 'casual' but I do see what you're getting at. I'm not really into superheroes or the bizarre Jap-American humour and, coupled with the garish colours, I just didn't enjoy the demo, which is a great shame. I still have high hopes for Bayonetta though.
