@Pod sorry, I should have made the comment more clear. To me, it doesn't seem worth it to pay full price for a port that came out half a year ago on other consoles. Ubisoft frequently has sales on their games and drops the prices with regularity so I will wait for one of those to happen.

I think it's strange that people are so put off by the Wii U. It's just a giant DS. They've been making DS games that take advantage of the two screens for almost 10 years now, why is it suddenly throwing them off because the screens are bigger?



dings commented on Satoru Iwata Cites Poor Basic Wii U Sales To R...:

I'm a pretty big Nintendo fan and I finally bought a Wii U earlier this week. I've never been a doomsayer or calling it the "next virtual boy" (it's already sold 4.5 times more systems). I was just waiting for Nintendo's classic first year drought to pass. With Pikmin 3 finally here and more around the corner it finally seemed like the right time to get one, and I'm glad I did!



dings commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for July:

I bought DK when it first came to the shop, got SPU as a reward when it was offered last but have not gotten Star Fox 64 yet and was seriously considering doing so! Now I can with out paying!

Touch screen only games are the worst. Has anyone tried to play Street Fighter, Sonic or any other traditionally controlled game on the iPhone/Android/whatever? It adds a whole new level of difficulty but for all the wrong reasons. I couldn't even play Pac-Man on the iPhone it just doesn't work.



dings commented on These Are Your Club Nintendo Elite Rewards:

For those complaining: Nintendo is the only gaming company giving anything away at all that I know of (could be wrong) and honestly, flipping out over something someone gives you makes you look like a child.

Don't forget there's also all the other rewards you still get to spend your coins on.



dings commented on Nintendo Likely to Retain Price Control in 3DS...:

As much as I love Nintendo it takes them way too long to catch onto current trends. They've got making great games down perfectly but every time I see them screw something up like pricing points, flimsy online experiences ect it just reminds me of their choice to stay offline for the GCN and cartridges for the N64.



dings commented on Bomberman Hero:

I wonder if it's really difficult for companies to port 64 games or they just haven't felt like it?



dings commented on Review: Robox (WiiWare):

Why are game programmers still making 2D platforming games with the same annoying problems that plagued them 20 years ago? Do they think it makes it feel more retro if they program something that doesn't control or move like you'd expect a game in 2010 to play?
This felt like one of those NES games that you rent based on cool box art only to realize once you've stuck it in that you're in for a frustrating weekend. You can only shoot in front of your face while enemies are anywhere but, random objects that don't stand out from the background hurt you among other things.
I spent enough time with games like this when I was younger that I really don't feel like be subjected to it anymore.



dings commented on Review: Zombie Panic in Wonderland (WiiWare):

I downloaded this demo and didn't much care for it!

The way enemies came at you and how you could only move back and forth it was like Space Invaders 3D with zombies and much lower difficulty!
