Emblem commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

I can't take this article (or comments) seriously when it rates a console by its sales... This is a game site leave the business talk to business sites. Games, hardware, fun and experiences are what you should rate a console on as a gamer. Lets talk about what matters for the gamer and not what matters for the investors please.



Emblem commented on Twili Midna Joins The Battle In Upcoming Hyrul...:

Im still on the 1st adventure map lol, i really need to complete it and get working on the second one for those sweet alt costumes and 8bit weps. This year has been great for games, so many great ones and not enough time is my problem now.



Emblem commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Evolved From a ...:

Toon link would have been cool but i prefer Toad even if i'm not that interested in this game (i'll likley still pick it up to give it a try though). Reason being is that even though Toad has been around for ages this is his first full game and if it does well it could encourage more spin-off games with existing but under used characters.



Emblem commented on Amazon amiibo Pre-Orders Hint at More Retailer...:

@sinalefa I find it hard to believe that the NOA store won't even be selling them, that's a very stupid move on there part. I hope NOA are getting a good deal out of this exclusivity because Nintendo fans don't like crap like this and Nintendo have alot riding on these things.

As others have said before, this is a new market and beyond nostalgia value Amiibo have no real hook so making them difficult to get is not a good idea.



Emblem commented on Video: Take a Closer Look at the Awesome GameP...:

Awesome game, haven't tried Co-op yet as I got stuck while unlocking levels lol. I generally hate puzzle games but the Stealth Inc games are so cleverly creative I can overcome my usual puzzle game frustration and play them.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Discusses Plans for amiibo Cards, Fra...:

@Captain_Gonru I think Nintendo fans are very (too?) vocal so as soon as Nintendo make a wrong step they will be called out and hopefully correct their course.

In anycase lets see where it goes. The market has already shown they are okay with having levels, characters, etc locked to a figure so it would be hard for Nintendo to screw up too much... I hope.

@rjejr I'm sure someone asked at Gamescom and they said possibly November on one of the Youtube vids floating around. Hopefully we will hear about it in the direct tomorrow. Worse case scenario it gets pushed back to early next year, it was originally expected late 2014 early 2015 after all.



Emblem commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@datamonkey That sucks, I feel the same way about most Mario games so I understand. I wouldn't expect any bombshell announcements tomorrow in regards to games for this year since all the below games are releasing within the next 4 weeks:

Sonic Boom
Planes Fire & Rescue
Penguins of Madagascar
Lego Batman 3
Shovel Knight (EU)
Swords & Soldiers 2
NES Remix 1&2 retail
MK8 1st DLC
Hyrule Warriors TP DLC
Capt Toad (not eu)

There are also about 15 more indie games missing from the "Over 40 indie games coming out in the next few months" early October quote.

Hopefully something on that list can hold you over until Capt Toad hits our shores on the 9th Jan.



Emblem commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

@DualWielding @GAMEandASH Certainly the price point should have been alot better considering this is a trimmed down version of the Wii U game.

It may well be a lazy port but since i own a Wii U i'll never find out as it brings nothing new to justify getting it on my 3Ds (Especially at that price), which in itself is a wasted oppertunity by Nintendo to get an additional sale i guess.



Emblem commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

@GAMEandASH I wont pretend to know the technical side of it so i have no idea how difficult or easy it would have been to replicate on 3Ds. I do know however they didnt think it was a good idea originally and only caved due to fan demand.

In anycase this is the same issue Playstation faced with the psp and vita, every game that already had a version on a home console was unfairly compared and always came up short, we all know how that story ended.

I have not played the port so cant speak on the quality so im not defending Nintendo, im just stating that no one should be picking up a 3DS game and expecting it to match up to the Wii U version.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

Nothing for me this week, Advance Warfare is out today for PS4 so ill likley pick it up for multiplayer weekends. Still trying to get through Stealth Inc 2 and unlock everything for Bayo2 anyway.



Emblem commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

Are people seriously suprised that a 3DS game isnt as good as the Wii U version? People are already saying the same crap about Smash bros 3DS being gimped. The 3DS is not a portable Wii U they do not even come close in terms of specs.



Emblem commented on Sounds Like Super Smash Bros. Director Masahir...:

@Artwark I think your looking at it the wrong way, your seeing him as a standard game dev when he is in fact an artisan. He's not working hard to please a boss or too earn more money, he is crafting a game that embodies his vision of what video games should be. People worship him mostly in jest (i hope) but its not hard to see why people love him, if you read his Famistu column or his interviews he embodies everything that people love about video games and truly loves his craft.



Emblem commented on Review: Stealth Inc 2: A Game of Clones (Wii U...:

@Peach64 I actually bothered to read that review as it was the first one out (I generally dislike Eurogamer reviews), true to form it has no actual information on the game itself and translates to "its too hard", strange considering the 1st one was merciless and yet a (different Eurogamer) reviewer gave it an 8 despite its difficulty. Seriously where's the info on co-op or level editor/sharing, game length, replay value, game modes etc?

Anyways i loved the first game so this was a day one for me anyway, but im glad to see that its technically sound and sounds better than the 1st.



Emblem commented on Pixel Paint Lands On North America’s Wii U e...:

This advert was horrible, they didn't show anything that would help me see how the game actually plays. I know they were trying to ham it up but a little info on the actual game would have be useful, as far as i can tell its ms paint.



Emblem commented on Nintendo Download: 30th October (Europe):

Stealth Inc 2 for me, I expect Wii U owners to put their money where their mouths are and support this game (providing its as good as the first and bug free of course).

Fallen Skies is abit pricey considering it reviewed so badly on PC where it was also over priced. Its a fun X-com clone but the PC version is riddled with bugs so anyone interested should hold off until its reviewed to see if they remain. Any idea of the DL size? Its 8GB on PC.

SMT4 is a no for now as i simply don't have time for it with all the amazing games just released and on the horizon.
