fluggy commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

Course it's a sequel and it's certainly a better game than 1. Started playing 2 again last week and it's just as incredible as I remember... So many different styles and nice uses of the wii mote... Each level offers something different. Really is a masterpiece. Looking at the wii back catalogue.... It's really quite sad that it's not remembered more fondly... There's cracking games from every genre!!



fluggy commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

My heart says SNES World.... But after starting galaxy 2 again 2 weeks ago... It has to be that. 25 years of gaming experience fine tuned and refined to a glorious celebration of all things Mario. . . Complete with new mechanics and incredibly realistic gravity system. Wow!!!



fluggy commented on Mario History: Mario Kart 64 - 1997:

I was really impressed and so excited when I first saw this on my mates imported jap N64... The graphics blew me away. Hasn't aged nearly as well as the SNES version. The jerky graphics make it a hard game to go back too. A lot of N64 games don't play as well as I remember.... Going back to Goldeneye really wrecked my fond memories... Really is an atrocious looking game!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

Amiibos are a scandalous, cynical cash cow created to fleece money out of kids and unsuspecting parents by a company who really should know better. Your average Nintendo, posable action figure toys don't exactly fly off the shelves... So we'll make rigid, unposable models... TONS of them... Pretend it does something useful with a miniscule amount of DLC (which would retail on its own for bout $0.50) and... bingo.... The kids ll be hooked! Why can't it just be about the games like the old days??!!



fluggy commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

Never used it.. Never will.. No idea what it is or what it does and I bought my U at launch. Is this the pest that allows other people to post meaningless nonsense like "good level" or "this game is sooo hard" .... Basically interfering and spoiling my play sessions!! I miss the old days. No trophies, dlc, patches or rubbish social networking nonsense!



fluggy commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Amiibo are a passing fad... a cynical cash cow aimed at kids and unfortunate, duped parents!!.... wish they'd kill it already and concentrate on making games!!! All it is is a way to charge a good chunk extra for very small portions of DLC!!! They focus on amiibo and everyone slates there E3 presentation!!!!! Get the message Ninty ... we want games - not overpriced plastic ..... come back from the dark side!!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

They would've been better just showing JUST Starfox ... then cutting the feed .... and ive never liked Starfox!!! Never has so much excitement been destroyed in such a short time!!! Yoshi Yarn was the only thing I liked ... and that was announced ages ago!!! We get a "Non-Metroid" game no-one wants..... a multiplayer Zelda no one wants(4-Swords was the weakest Zelda game), another seemingly identical Mario tennis game, mmmmooooorrree Paper Mario and way too much Mario Maker ..... which is soooo dull to watch!!! You've had a year to prepare and this is the fruits of your labour???!!! Completely unacceptable!!!!



fluggy commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

Shocking!!!! Metroid is about isolation!!!! What Metroid fan wants to play something called Metroid Blast Ball!!! The whole presentation left me seething with rage!!! Awful!!!!! Not one BIG reveal!!! Really have lost me with this crap!!!



fluggy commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

Load of tat!!! Hope this fad ends asap!!! Got Disney Infinity for my son. Fun for a week! 10 figures now in a bag in cupboard. NFC should get scrapped. This is something that should be 0.99$DLC. Instead kids are made to collect unbendable, boring figures. My son has great Nintendo figures ... ones you can actually play with. He plays with the figure ... he plays a Mario game ... there ... "Toys to Life" without any NFC figure collection nonsense. Its a cynical, greedy, cash-grabbing, marketing ploy focussing on prolonged milking of parents and children!



fluggy commented on Video: What If Super Metroid Was A 3D Classic?:

What if it was remade for Wii U or 3DS with a graphical overhaul to the level of "Ori and the Blind Forest" (the best Metroid style game ive played since Super Metroid with the best graphics of any 2D game ive played)! That would be glorious!!!!



fluggy commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:

RockBand died out because it was stale!!! Fun initially... sure!!! I don't know anyone who continued to play each iteration much or anyone who would want too!! Its a dead franchise!!! I couldn't go back to tacky plastic after rocksmith2014 which really is a great (and useful) app/game!!



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

Its awful!!! Pikmin keyrings or ds game cases...?... Anyone????!! .... Anyone???!!!.. No, I didnt think so!!!! Nothing good to buy after years of collecting... No incentive to add points any more. Had a look last week and thought I'd just swap my substantial accumulated points for a few 1000 points cards to download games.... I couldn't as the only points card you can purchase are (baffilingly) only for (the obsolete) Wii Virtual Console and not the Wii U eshop!??!! Rubbish!



fluggy commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Snes for me. Up all night or Sunday sessions of SNES battle mode track 4 were great. . . as were the tight tracks and skilful gameplay. Can imagine new players hating it because if u don't master it u won't like it. But once you learn to jump n twist in and out of every tight corner... Its incredible.



fluggy commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

How bout a "normal", back to basics console thats as powerful as present tech allows it to be and with a framework that is in tune with 3rd party devs so we don't get the " Wii U's architecture is too tricky to create games for" crap.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

.... Or water down the legacy ... Any reasonable android phone can play games via emulator up to SNES/GBA!!! Who wants to play "proper" games on a phone??? Sony tried it .... Failure!!! Tablets added a controller ... Obsolete!!! Its DOA!!!! Stick to maintaining credibility Ninty!!!



fluggy commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

The pricing is all wrong!!! If you want to sell Wii U to be your customer's "other" console you want to make it cheaper!!! If you can get an Xbox One for $30 more, consumers will prob find that a more attractive offer!



fluggy commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Just about all third party games seem to have had this prob. Assassin's, 2 Batman games etc! Regardless of the troublesome infrastructure being different - surely it cant be that hard to get reasonable results!! Its probably extremely different to the original Wii also - yet Ninty game devs (who didnt actually design the consoles inner workings) can milk it for everything its worth!



fluggy commented on Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric:

Sonic is a total embarrassment.... The fact that this will sit on the same shelf ... At the same price as Smash Bros is shocking. Sega really are one of the worst devs ! Occasionally a game like Alien Isolation surprises u but generally ... Theyre shocking.



fluggy commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

Not allowing 3DS game piracy with this launcher is irrelevant now that Gateway claim to have cracked latest firmware. Running SNES/Megadrive emulators is piracy anyway, considering these retro games are available on Wii U V.C and 3DS eshop! On the plus side it could be a great way for Ninty to generate sales of the New 3DS. Think lotsa people would upgrade to new model if they had a compatible flashcart!



fluggy commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

Playing 3DS game just now and less than impressed. Coming to realise the original Sonic was completely over rated ... it just doesnt stand the test of time or compare to games like Mario World! .... The formula just doesnt work! Marios newer games have been worthy - even the lesser recent Wii/Wii U versions! Sonics not been in a good game for years!! How long does it take to improve/fine tune a game!?? Put the hedgehog out to pasteur Sega!!!Hes suffered enough!!!



fluggy commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

This is stupid. Nintendo made a decision not to include any reasonably sized storage. . . so gave us external HD support. There's no prob here. Release game - people that have basic model will buy a £5 flash stick to play it! Other companies release larger games on eshop!



fluggy commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

Damn..... The last Nintendo mag! Really sad day. Been buying this since the appallingly named Nintendo Magazine System. Guessed it was coming though coz the site wasn't exactly up to date recently. Ive been downloading my copy from Zinio. Can't believe I'll never look forward to another issue.



fluggy commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

Can't believe it!!! Fatal Frame 4 on Wii had a patch developed that worked a treat. Maybe same kinda thing could be used here ..... although the patch took bloody ages to be developed and released. I'm hoping this aint true!!



fluggy commented on A 3DS Can be Used as a Controller in Super Sma...:

Whoa, whoa , whoa!!! Something really fishy about having to own the 3ds version of the game to only use the 3ds as a controller on Wii u! If u wanted local multiplayer on Wii U with 4 3ds owning friends you'd need 5(!!!!!!) copies of the game!! Surely integrating the 3ds as a controller would be/should be as simple as a dlc programme to install on your 3ds to make it compatible!!!



fluggy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Sorry but that is NOT what I meant when I insisted the 3ds shoulda had dual analogue. A tiny analogue nub???!!!?? Why not just give us dual circle pads. They continually revise these things and get it wrong time n time again. This fragmentation is appalling and unforgivable in the console industry.



fluggy commented on New Legend Of Zelda "Only Possible" Thanks To ...:

Not sure if I like the sound of this. Too many changes. Enjoyed Link Between World's but on second playthrough I realised the new item purchasing was rotten. I like stumbling through a dungeon and trying to guess which item will be hiding in a chest somewhere. To be able to complete the game without having to use ALL items just isn't Zelda.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

Nintendo should have a ROM/emulator service instead of VC. Dump every ROM from NES to N64 (without having to adapt it for VC) and provide the correct emulator and charge £1 a ROM. Cheap to do from Nintys point of view and real service at an apt price for customers.



fluggy commented on Nintendo's At It Again With Another Majora's M...:

Really enjoyed Majoras Mask but at the time I remember thinking its not a game I would ever want to play again. Slightly too many quirks for my liking n its all a bit of a chore remembering who's around and at what time.



fluggy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

Yeah.... On "vwii." Everything works from the Wii homebrew channel. . . been around for quite a while now. Really Cool ... U can use gamepad as screen for all homebrew apps.



fluggy commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

My first console. (Im 36) . Just completed Wonderboy in Monsterland yesterday on Smsplus on my WiiU.... Rock solid.... Can't believe anyone could complete it without relying on save states!!! Rastan, Shinobi, Psycho Fox, Gangster Town, Fantasy Zone .... All still rather playable today.Great console.



fluggy commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

Um .... No .... Because Its not portable (mine can't even make it past doorway never mind into bedroom), its not touch capcative = HUGE drawback. U can't store fave cartoons on it. I like the gamepad but my Nexus 7 buries it when it comes to entertaining my son ... and beats it in every other category apart from ... Um ... playing Wii U games.



fluggy commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

HAS to be A Link to the Past. Just a completely gripping story packed with every emotion AND the structure hasn't been changed (until the Wii U version allegedly). Hadn't played anything like it... used to race home from school to continue the mammoth adventure. That's the thing with Ninty.... U get experiences rather than just games. Had a Megadrive too ... But u just didnt get gripping pageturners like ALttP or Super Metroid on other systems.



fluggy commented on Eiji Aonuma Hints at The Legend of Zelda on Wi...:

God of War 3 on PS3 was best in series. The incredible visuals n design were watered down for Ascension.... If they had ignored spending time on multiplayer and created an incredible solo experience fans would be happy. They didn't .... They tarnished a legacy, sales were poor and members of the dev team were rightly laid off... All because some dimwit wanted to include a pointless multiplayer. I wouldve liked resi 5 a lot.... If it was just Leon in solo game without having to babysit Shiva. Dead Space 1+2 were both far superior to 3 ... WITH NO CO-OP!!!



fluggy commented on Eiji Aonuma Hints at The Legend of Zelda on Wi...:

Please not co-op.... My fave franchises, Dead Space and God of War were ruined with co-op. Single player in Dead Space 3 suffered and main campaign in God of War Ascension wasn't up to scratch as devs were spending time n resources to include multiplayer. Co-op Zelda doesn't sound necessary at all.



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

I'm guessing the reason Mario Kart 8 doesn't offer separate screens/streams to gamepad and tv (what possible reason would Ninty have for not including this) as opposed to the tv mirroring they opted for, is that the Wii U simply isn't capable of pumping out separate streams of Mario Kart. For the first time we have 2 separate screens (something I've wanted since the SNES game).... And Ninty decide to give us split screen on an already small gamepad display. Baffling.
