diavu commented on Senior EA Employee Caught Out Criticising Wii ...:

that guy has no idea what he is doing, why does he want to make games for the N64, playstation and sega saturn? we are in generation 8 now.

he is just trash talking because he wants attention and he has, probably every nintendo news site is picking this up. the console is obviously more powerful than gen7, EA just don't want to work with it.



diavu commented on DICE Tested Its Frostbite Engine On Wii U, Was...:

Am i the only one who thought that Frostbite was created by FrozenByte? (the developers of Trine and Shadowgrounds).

anywho, the reason NO EA games are coming to Wii U is simple: Hardware sales are low, and EA is struggling financially. every big investment they've made recently has had trouble (SimCity, ME fanbase, DA2, SWTOR). so they're not going to go out and tell investors that all their games will be ported to a console that has 4 million hardware sales, or whatever the number is at now.



diavu commented on Coaster Crazy Deluxe Looping Onto the Wii U eShop:

theme park inc is also good, i own both theme park world and theme park inc, and all the RTC games. thankfully in windows 7 you can play theme park inc without too many problems (still random crashes, just save alot). whereas under xp you needed a patchfix for theme park world for it to work



diavu commented on Coaster Crazy Deluxe Looping Onto the Wii U eShop:

i really don't like these "roller coaster tycoon 3 inspired games" that frontier keeps making, they're trash. i'm not buying anything from them, i never had. i've tried their games and they are really poor in quality and lack the massive content and replayability of RTC games.
i'll be waiting for RTC4.



diavu commented on Review: Jeopardy! (Wii U):

It begins.

the unslaught of party games and family friendly games, that will overrun the game market with casual games leaving no space for good games, just like what happened with the wii.



diavu commented on Latest Figures Show The Video Game Market Is C...:

as many people point out, software on the wii u is a bit lacking.

but personally i've been focussing only on the PC for the last 2-3 years, although i have a Wii and a library of 15 games plus downloadable titles.
now that the wii u has arrived, my attention is once again directed towards the consoles and i am looking forward to aquiring a Wii U.

but the prices for games is close to scaring me away, on the PC games are cheap, and they are easily downloadable. normally you can buy some of the best games avaliable for 5, 10, or 15€. on the wii u, every game at the moment is 40€+. even on the old wii, zelda and super mario galaxy 2 is 30€+. this makes it very expensive to expand your library, and it's not something you just "do". you take care and attention into what you are buying instead of just going "oh, this looks cool. adds to cart". i am fairly certian this harms the sales alot, too.

it is pretty diappointing aswell. i remember 4-7 years ago the latest releases cost 50€, then slowly dropped down untill maybe 30€. this is 2013, and everything is still this expensive? it's insane.
