DefHalan commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

I really hope the DLC will be supported on Wii U, I think any DLC released before November 18th should be free for Wii U owners but it won't stop me from buying it if the DLC is at least coming to Wii U

DefHalan commented on Dahku Creations Announces Departure From Game ...:

I understand what they are saying but I feel people want a meaty experience on consoles. What I mean by meaty is the length of the experience. The amount of time it takes for the consumer to get the "full experience" RPGs do this by having a long story. Shooters do this by having online multiplayer. Puzzle games do it by having random-ization.Soon Shine looked like it didn't offer much gameplay. I watched the Trailer and felt they showed everything in it.Just my opinion

EDIT: Just to add on, it doesn't have to be a long experience, Steamworld Dig does a good job of having a meaty short experience.

EDIT2: Can't believe I didn't say this before. Sorry to hear you are leaving the industry, I hope the best for you

Ok, I am not saying everyone needs to like the game. I am just saying it is a good game. I think playing a game with the same mechanics but with the story of walking around a castle finding out why it is deserted, would be equally as good and I think more people would be interested in such a game, mainly because of its story.

Well it is actually a good game, it doesn't have much in terms of gameplay but that doesn't stop it from being a good game. I like the exploration in the game... well the whole game is just exploration but I like it lol. Not sure if it is worth a second playthrough and don't think it is worth the high price.

Why do developers/publishers devalue their work so much on smart devices? I get that most smart phone users won't buy "expensive" games (generally anything over $5) but then how is it worth it? Do you really make that much money off selling it for so cheap on those devices? (I know this isn't as bad, so take this as more of a general statement)

@Captain-Falcon
I would rather get ondies on console. I find consoles indies are normally a better experience than on PC. I just hate how indies will be a part of a humble bundle before they release their game on all target platforms. Because of that I get their games for super cheap and aren't really supporting them. If they waited to do Humble Bundles until after they release on all target platforns then they would catch me twice, once on console and once on Humble Bundle

DefHalan commented on Skylanders Trap Team on Wii Will, Surprisingly...:

I think I would be more interested if the Wii U version came with a free download code for the 3DS version, pretty sure it is the same portal for both systems. Not that I would buy it but I would be more interested. I am already doing Disney Infinity and Amiibo when that happens.

DefHalan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

I find Nintendo's plan is to target their audience, instead of press. Which works and hurts at the same time. With Nintendo themselves targeting theaudience, press feels left out. I saw it happen at E3, where press would report on Sony and Microsoft's Conferences and when it came to Nintendo they were like, well you all saw it so we don't need to report about it. (Thank you NintendoLife for not doing that) A lot of press, from what I have seen, get upset if they aren't told first or given special treatment over "normal gamers"

I have agreed that if you did not do research about the game before purchasing you might feel ripped off. The developer has stated his plan to add content as the game sells more. Just because Nintendo doesn't have a Early Access program doesn't mean it can't have games like this. Maybe it shouldn't but it is a little late for that now. The point is NL is using a game that is known for not being complete as an example for bad games on the eShop. There are other examples, so why use a game that is "unfinished"

I do not have a problem with what the developer is doing just like I don't have a problem with Steam's Early Access program. If you think that because they are asking people to pay that it should be compared to fully finished games then shouldn't most Kickstarter game receive a 0/10 as most do not give the players anything right away for backing? It is the same concept only you get the game right away and get to experience how the game will change throughout the development process. If you don't like The Letter, then that is your opinion and I will not try to change that. I just think it is unfair for Nintendo Life to be using it as an example of how terrible the eShop is/has become when the game isn't finished and the developer is pretty vocal about adding more content.

@daveh30
I said how some could say it is "finished" and by certain standards it could be considered "finished" in my opinion it is not finished. The developer is still adding content. So the game is not finished in my opinion. But I can see where it could be "finished" by other standards, just not mine.

@daveh30
I can see how it made it through, even without the updates you can call it a "finished" game. It starts and functions properly to the end. It is the developer himself who has been talking about the updates, Nintendo is not in charge of the updates. So if you bought it without research then sure you might be upset. I don't understand how The Letter can be used as an example of what is wrong with the eShop as the developer has said what is released is not the final game. I call that unfinished, others call it what they want but that is the gist of it

I am not saying it is one guy so cut him slack. I am not even saying The Letter is good. What I am saying is the game is Unfinished. The developer is taking the money he makes off it to add more content. In the Miiverse message above, the developer could mean that the game is finished in the sense that you don't get to a point where the game stops but the story doesn't have an ending, I do not know I would ask the developer for clarification. If your example of the eShop goingdown hill is a game that is being built using the money it makes from selling the game then I think that is unfair. I have never heard of another console game that has ever done a similar strategy. From the preview of the first update there is already a lot of content being added. These patches are not to fix bugs but to continue to build the game. So if The Letter is your example of the eShop going downhill I have to disagree as PSN and Xbox Live haven't tried this, and even Steam Early Access hasn't tried it to this extreme (as far as I know). I am interested to see what the "final" product is.
