ghosto commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):
7.8 Too much water
ghosto commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:
The Monaco circuit would be mayhem but the French Riviera would look incredible with the MK 8 engine. I would be neat to see more courses with a Mediterranean inspired look.
ghosto commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:
I agree with Reggie because my 360 has been banished to storage because the online and games are pure junk.
ghosto commented on The Original NES Duck Hunt Is Coming Soon To T...:
I hope this game plays as well as the original. I am going to search for one of those nyko handguns.
ghosto commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:
They should add a goofy side quest with a character that resembles Robin Williams.
The people trying to shun him for committing suicide should do something with their lives instead of trying to ride the coat tails of a dead man into obscurity.
ghosto commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:
Children cannot access the internet without opening an account with an ISP so parents who open that door for them should be held 100% accountable for what happens, it is no different than alcohol, tobacco, firearms and vehicles at home.
ghosto commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:
They tend to put the product placement on their packaging not in the game. I wish I got some MK8 coins for eating Doritos.
1080 snowboarding and Wave Race 64 had this and it wasn't a big deal. When they go the Microsoft route and charge a premium to jam the Wii U full of adds then its time to grab the pitch fork and torch and head to the Nintendo HQ.
ghosto commented on Nintendo Looking To Grow Wii U Audience To Tem...:
Do the third parties even have any toes left to shoot off? Borderlands and Civ 5 should of been on the Wii U because the gamepad would make them the best versions out there by a long shot but instead they do a crappy vita port with Borderlands and absolutely nothing with Civ 5. It wasn't that long ago the third parties were shouting from the rooftops about how revolutionary the Kinect would be and not even a year in Microsoft has already abandoned it.
ghosto commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for June, Led by...:
I wish kirby's dream land was on the wii u, I remember as a kid playing the game and stomping the final boss only to have my batteries explode in the gameboy so I never got to see the ending.
ghosto commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:
The reason Ubisoft games don't sell is because they make garbage games. Did they find this clown scrubbing toilets and promote him to CEO because scrubbing toilets is about all he is qualified for. Ubisoft destroyed its own franchises nearly 10 years ago and since Mario Kart 8 is selling very well the problem is clearly Ubisoft.
ghosto commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:
Nintendo are suckers for listening to their lawyers, the only people who benefit from this is the Nintendo legal team. This already hurt sales and damaged the brand yet they are going to spend millions of dollars to prevent somebody on youtube from making a few bucks.
ghosto commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:
Free DLC. Making tracks and extra characters costs peanuts now that the core game is finished. Paid DLC only splits the online community and lots of people are tired of being nickle and dimed to death.
ghosto commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:
Nintendo is turning into Pentagon Wars with the decisions being made regarding the gamepad.
ghosto commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:
It was an old game released at full price, can't blame Nintendo on that one. If it had tighter handling and got rid of those dumb crash animations it would of sold more copies.
While some people love the game at the end of the day much more people thought it was a bad game and that is why they didn't buy it and bad game category is the developers department. Make better games next time and they will sell more copies.
The people who buy your games make less money than you, work more holidays, work more weekends, do more dangerous jobs and work much harder than any developer so it is very insulting to the customer to go on a rant like this.
ghosto commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:
Typical greed mentality of cutting the goose open to get the golden eggs. Maintaining servers costs peanuts and all it does is force people to never buy your product again when you pull the plug. Shutting down Gamespy and Xbox Live didn't exactly do wonders for Microsoft or the PC gaming market and the lost sales from rightfully upset customers will eclipse what ever server costs would of been.
ghosto commented on Nintendo UK's Store Offers The Mario and Sonic...:
The xbox 360 is garbage, the online is horrible, the games are broken, the interface is buggy and cluttered with ads and every feature is blocked by a pay wall.
Nintendo games look gorgeous, they launch instantly without stupid installs and 5000 patches plus the gamepad destroys the piece of garbage 360 controller.
You don't like the wii u fine, but don't go around claiming the 360 superior because its not, I've been with xbox since it launched and I jumped off that sinking ship and if you want to jump on that band wagon best of luck pal I hope you have deep pockets.
ghosto commented on Congo Calling's Bandi Mbubi Urges Gamers To Pr...:
Is Apple claiming that no part of their product is made in a NATO country? No wonder Apple products are so expensive, they must harvest all the materials from conflict free outer space.
ghosto commented on Nicalis: We'd Like To Support Europe, But Nint...:
Who in their right mind would trust a total group of strangers to determine what is okay and not okay for their kids to experience?
ghosto commented on Preview: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze:
This game looks fantastic, interesting choice to roll with viking folklore I just hope the game shows some mercy because of the lag from HDTV.
ghosto commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:
Ubisoft had 3 franchise games on the original Xbox that dominated and in the blink of an eye they destroy all three of them by taking the games in the direction nobody wanted with all the future tech crap and pretty much paved the way for Call of Duty and Battlefield to take over and now those franchises are circling the drain to obscurity by making the exact same mistakes.
While Nintendo's polices aren't perfect they are setting themselves up for the long term and not painting themselves into a corner to make a fast buck. Nintendo has invested far more into the Wii U and the 3rd parties have invested next to nothing into the console yet expect a massive return with minimal effort and all the 3rd parties refusing to support the Wii U are doing it because they know their own products are junk that won't sell.
ghosto commented on Mass Market Price And Mario Kart 8 Will Revers...:
The price isn't the problem, it's the lack of games but with Donkey Kong and Mario Kart on the horizon that will change.
Nintendo could make some killer light gun games if they can utilize the mounts on the gamepad and incorporate the Wiimote and a fiberglass stock to be used on the jaws of lunatic teachers and mothers who don't like guns.
ghosto commented on Nintendo "Confident" in PC Box Anti-Piracy Cas...:
It's one of those situations where if you give either side an inch they will take a mile :/
ghosto commented on EA's Peter Moore States That "Nintendo's A Gre...:
The current EA business model of releasing a lousy port of last years game on the the Wii U and charging full price is going to fail every time. If EA had a booth selling T-shirts at the Superbowl this year they'd show up with Ravens and 49ers gear and then blame the NFL for poor sales.
ghosto commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:
These crybaby 3rd party developers are the problem not the hardware. All they do is spew a bunch of corporate speak to justify their jobs. If they make good games people might buy them but if they put in zero effort, offer zero support, release the game for the Wii U weeks or months later, strip lots of features, then have the balls to charge full price and then when it tanks they instantly blame the customer and Nintendo.
If turd party developers refuse to make a game for the Wii U I refuse to buy it on Xbox 360. Up yours EA, Codemasters and anybody else who pulls this nonsense.
ghosto commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:
When you have the exact same tools available to make a game that your competitor has and you keep finishing last place I've got some bad news, its not the hardware that is the issue, it is the operator. The whole anonymous angle is pathetic because these sources know the world will be rolling around on the floor laughing at them when they reveal their list of "accomplishments".
