GreatPlayer commented on Sonic Lost World's Wii U Exclusivity Ends With...:

@Dankykong As said by many players before, Lost World does not have bad design. When people complain about it it is because they die too often in this game. Expert reviewers are very divided about this game: some love it and other hate it. It is, however, more difficult than Genesis Sonic games. I think people think Lost World was bad because they have compared the game with Mario games, which tend to have strong exploration aspect. But does Mario Galaxy has bad levels? Yes - I still remember trying to stump the beetle boss which flies around a bush for 30 minutes but still could not kill it because players could not perceive the 3D distance on a 2D screen. I still remember playing those pinball stage for 30 minutes but keep dying because of poor control.

@Kage_88 You have missed Made in Wario (basically trash) and Mario U.



GreatPlayer commented on Video: The Just Dance Unlimited Subscription S...:

After playing Dance Central Spotlight, I have no interest in Just Dance. The game Just Dance does not teach you moves.

The only good merit of Xbox One is Kinect 2, and they are not planning new games on it. So this generation of gaming largely relegates back to button smashing on the controller rather than motion control. This is unfortunate.



GreatPlayer commented on Climate "Not Healthy" For Dedicated Handheld G...:

The problem of playing games on smartphone is the poor control. I really have not much interest on mobile games (except Sonic Runners recently). The control needs to be extremely simple (e.g., simple tapping) in order to work well on smartphones. Therefore, most smartphone games are not complicated enough for me.



GreatPlayer commented on 3DS Exclusive Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice Slips Int...:

@AshFoxX Rise of Lyric took 5 years to produce. Is that a rush? BigRedButton screwed it up. They even made a blatent lie that Sega did not tell them that the game would be on a Nintendo platform, when every single Sonic game in recent years has been put on Nintendo platform.

The quickest way to unlock is to keep placing blocks on the screen. Then you will receive notification of delivery tomorrow. Quit the game and then set tomorrow date. And viola, your delivery has come. Repeat the process and you can unlock everything within an hour.



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

@ShadJV That is because not everyone thinks Galaxy 1 and 2 are as good. Galaxy 1 has the problem of depth perception. I still remember that there was a boss flying around a tree truck and I could not kill it because I could not perceive the 3D distance between me and the boss. It took me an annoying 40 minutes to kill it by trial and error. Galaxy 2 is better. But still, 2D mario is a lot of times better than its 3D counterpart (exception: Mario U and Luigi U, which are both rehash of the original games) - just look at the sales.



GreatPlayer commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Shift Its...:

I personally do not care if the gane is indie or non indie. Life is Strange is a popular indie game that sells well. Papers please is a superb indie game. What is lacking on Wii U, however, is ganes with a more mature tone. That is why Wii U gives people an impression of a kidie console, which hinders sales.



GreatPlayer commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

Honestly, optic disc drive is outdated. On Xbox One I don't understand the purpose of having a disc drive - the game is installed or downloaded anyway on hard drive. How many people still watch DVD or Blueray disc? Everyone downloads. So the move to remove optical drive will save cost.



GreatPlayer commented on Freedom Planet Runs into Delay:

I played this game on PC and I like this game. This game, however, was designed primarily on PC but surprisingly not optimised in my i7 computer with noticeable slowdown. A lot of recent sonic games are better than this (though Sonic Boom was a failure). When people say this is better than sonic this is a conundrum to me.



GreatPlayer commented on Video: Watch Sonic Repeatedly Rescue Tails In ...:

Sonic 4 was not very good (not too bad), but most of the recent sonic titles (Lost World, Colors, and Generations), in my opinion, are vast improvement over the earlier titles.

Nevertheless, the bosses in Sonic 2 has a strong 'mechanical' feel to it and I love it.



GreatPlayer commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

@TheRealThanos if what you said is correct, then slightly mad never promised a Wii U version.

If one think about it, how many Wii U fans will go out to buy this game? If you are simulator fans you would not buy a Wii U anyway. Why blame a third party which publish games that you will not buy and do not care?



GreatPlayer commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

@BLPs I agree. Actually, Megaman series is a difficult game that requires a lot of attention to skills. I remember the first time I owned Megaman X and I died a lot. After picking up the skills I can go through most of the stages without much difficulty. It is unfortunately that reviewers and gamers nowadays just want a game to spoonfeed them.



GreatPlayer commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

@BLPs @ThomasBW84 I agree with you that Sonic Lost World is not a difficult game, but see what Nintendo Life has said in their review:

"this is a demanding, difficult game to play... The 3D environments are most troubling, as Sonic moves relatively quickly — even when not dashing — and lacks the precision and balance of a certain chubby moustachioed rival. Lining up a dash for a wall climb, making precision jumps and any moves that require accurately hitting a specific spot are fiddly to execute."

So skills are busted by reviewers nowadays. Sonic games always require some skills to control Sonic's speed. However, Nintendo Life's standard is that a game should be easy to pick up on control. A game requiring skilful control, on the part of the players, are no longer favoured well.

It seems that reviewers nowaday are just good at writing but not at games. I bet the same thing happens to Devil's Third.



GreatPlayer commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

My guess is that Wii U right now is ABLE to run high graphics games like Batman Arkhan Knight or Witcher 3, but third parties will need to make a lot of work. Therefore, unless Wii U is at least as powerful as PS4 or Xbox One, the system will alleviate a lot of work of those third parties, which are likely to port games to the other two systems mentioned.



GreatPlayer commented on We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Fas...:

Nintendo probably has troubles in creating emultion software. For some reason, the emulators on PC somehow runs smoother than the one on Wii U. There are noticeable slowdown in Super Mario World on Wii u but not at PC, probably due to Nintendo having to develop a new set of emulators for each console.



GreatPlayer commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

Nintendo needs to ensure its new console having more mature content. Maybe letting players to turn the violence on and off. After playing Kife us Strange, I realized what kind of games is missing on Wii U. Second, the gamepad is gimmicky and takes up lots of power when operating.



GreatPlayer commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Could Use Google's Android...:

That will be such a smart idea: put android based os on Nintendo console can be a brilliant way to solve the lack of third party problem. Lots of people develop games on abdroid. I am sure that the prospective system will be much more powerful than Oyra. However, please scrab the idea of the gamepad. I have not seen many games that really use it.
