Ok nintendolife, here's what needs to happen.

You need to play mario kart 8. Monster hunter. Wonderful 101. Pikmin 3. Super mario 3d world. Games that matter.

Then, review a title. Any title - a dollar eshop, a blockbuster bayonetta - any title. Then think about the quality experience. Not the price, or the dollar for an effort - think about my precious time. My precious, little, rather to be well spent time.

Then, do you really recommend 5 minutes of blok drop wii u over 5 minutes of mario kart? Or 40 minutes of I've got to run over 40 minutes of pikmin 3?

I'm willing to argue that the first review site that's willing to review any game experience in that light, instead of falling for non-significant referentials of price to quality ratios that forgoes any time for quality enjoyment ratio, wins the entire internet in the long run.

I'm still hoping that will be you guys.

I think the ability to transfer your own console system to another is a great improvement. Should my wii U ever break down in a way my wii did, I can now just transfer the system and re apply my hard drive.

Here's hoping that never needs to happen though.

Whoa. Another field full of creatures waiting to be lawnmowed.

I need review material before I decide on buying this. I loved spartan total warrior, for instance, but things like co op and variety will dictate the quality of this particular game.



erv commented on Rising Star Games Is Now Ten Years Old:

Little kings story.

But bless them, it wasn't pushed to shop at all so the game didn't sell well. I like what they publish, but hate how they publish.

Lol at the "we don't know the gameplay yet but we need a suchandsuch control system!" comments.

By the way, don't be silly launching against the splatoon timeframe. So many games are published at time frames that hurt them.



erv commented on Nintendo Supported Our Vision The Most, Says D...:

It really looks and sounds like something I want to play, especially in motion. I didn't expect that to be honest.

I love me a hard rocking, blade fighting, carnage inducing protagonist. Yep, buying.

There's some great quality gaming to be found on ios devices people. Like it or not, it's nintendo competition.

But that ecosystem is gaming unfriendly - shovelware and crapware drown out gems, and getting interrupted by notifications makes the brain go numb through short burst distractions.

I experience superior quality and gaming with nintendo, mind.



erv commented on Bayonetta 2 Director Eager to "Nurture" the Se...:

@Emblem yep, I call it publisher hypocrisy. Launching at idiot timeframes because they work on paper according to a number crunching analyst, then just complaining things don't sell while facing crushing competition.

I wish this franchise the best though.



erv commented on Miiverse Update Adds Post Embed Option, Activi...:

Yep, this is called successful agile development.

Don't be surprised to see miiverse grow to one of the main social networks between now and 5-7 years. The focus points of these updates reek of proper ownership.



erv commented on Don't Worry, Splatoon Will Have A Local Mulitp...:

I'd love an additional 5 player local, but I think we need to really press on the ability to talk to each other and easily mute all but one of the people, etc.

I'd love to be able to talk to my friends instead of skyping them on the side. Use that gamepad properly :)



erv commented on Nintendo Executive Suggests Wii U is at a "Tip...:

@XCWarrior I agree the wii u is one of the best consoles nintendo has had in terms of great content.

However, games need development time. People always talk about "nintendo needs to do starfix or something" as if games are done within a few months. Most of the quality games we know and love nintendo for take years. Too many people seem to think you can create a game in two months or something.



erv commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms That Dual GamePad Su...:

Before it happens, nintendo will try its best to do better with a new generation of systems. If they go the modular route and make the portable hot pluggable to the console, this entire gamepad scenario will play out very different.



erv commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

@Tsurii897 yep, the account system is a must.

I hate the fact that most of my purchases from wiiware back in the day got stuck on my brokendown wii. It is archaic and illogical.

I still love the convenience of digital purchases, but just the account system up and running would be great.



erv commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (Europe):

Might get pullblox later, or on the occasional discount... got too much to game as it is. I'd advise everyone to get them toki tori 2+ as that is just a gem of a game.



erv commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Either an xbox 360 or a wii out of that 31%. So you assume those are equally divided? 30 percent was xbox 360 more likely, and 1 percent maybe a wii?

As long as 360 and wii are bundled in these statistics, you don't know much. I got a feeling that many 360 owners went for a ps4 in the first place.
