heyzeus002 commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

The w101 was hands down my goty last year and b2 probably will be for this year.im just glad that in spite of continued low sales, platinum are still around making games that they want even though they aren't going to be million sellers. Also, b2 and w101 were the reaons that I bought a wii u in the first place. For the first time, I bought a nintendo machine for non nintendo developed games which speaks volumes with regards to p*'s quality.

heyzeus002 commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

Cant wait. B2 was the reaon that for the first time ever, ive bought a nintendo console for primarily a non nintendo developed game. I also hope they dont make another one now, would rather she retired at the top of her game and not dilute her legend with unnecessary sequels.also donkey kongs 1,2 and 3 on vc, whoooooo!

@Jazzer94 id love it if it did sell better even more so as it would be in the running for game of year in this or any other year but im not optimistic.none of platinums games have sold well (barring mgr revengeance) and that was probably due to mgs license.i just hope that p☆ either keep going independently or nintedo buys them out. Developers like these need to stick around

heyzeus002 commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

@bouncer0304 it's arguably much better than w101 which incidentally was my game of the year last year so if you enjoyed that then rest assured, you're in safe hands:-)

also an eight does not do this masterpiece justice, i demand a recount or a full blown riot at NLife towers, whichever one is easiest to organise. one of the gems of last gen and my personal best game of the generation and that's no mean feat as street fighter 4 was also in the mix (my 2nd best game of last gen)
oct 24 seems so far away.CAN NOT WAIT. (but obviously have to...)

heyzeus002 commented on Shovel Knight Rated By The Australian Classifi...:

@BLPs sounds like a good old fashioned power trip to me. With regards to the regulations I feel it's a no win situation. Game shop staff, ultimately, can't say no to an age appropriate person even if they know for a fact the purchase is for a minor. The lanfuage thing iss ridiculously ridiculous, I still remember people having a huge problem with the game boy color when nintendo released it in uk using the us spelling

@BLPs good point. I've lost count of the amount that little 10 year old Johnny comes in to game shop to buy cod or whatever with their mums/dads, makes it all seem slightly pointless. Also, shocking that you got banned for not using us english. I'm wondering though, when you used the letter U in words was it perchance *@$# yoU?! ;)

Whose idea was this reboot/revamp anyway?! I remember it when it came out, was absolutely horrendous so no surprise they're looking for more potential backers from wii u owners as they will no doubt struggle with the target

For the first time ever, I bought a nintendo console primarily for a non nintendo game and this was it. CAN NOT WAIT. This is going to be indescribably awesome. The fact they are throwing in the first game is just icing on the already gratuitously rich cake..

heyzeus002 commented on Target Blast Mini-Game Blows Up on Super Smash...:

@KHaceattorney I see what you are saying but its just me. When im playing a 2d game I always use d pad if poss, just feels more intuitive to me.like in dk: tf I tried stick controls and just couldn't get on with them. Its no deal breaker though and ill just have to adjust. Ive only played brawl on wii very very briefly so this will be the 1st smash game ill be playing 'properly' as it were. Thanks for the response btw, much appreciated kind sir.

Seems like a cool little distraction from the main game. Cant wwaitfor this. Can someone who has played this (or know the answer) please tell me if you are able tto use the d pad for movement or is it just analogue? Im used to playing 2d fighters with d pad and would much prefer it that way..

heyzeus002 commented on Wii U Reference Discovered In Call of Duty: Ad...:

Hope it does come for those that want it.personally, I shall be getting it on ps4/ xb1 due to the dlc and superior version that those two systems will no doubt be getting. I don't biy cod dlc and I never have done actually as far as I can recall but I like to have thr option to acquire it if I want it.also, after really enjoying blops2 I got ghosts on wii u and that just looked and felt horrendously bad for some reason which has left a bad taste in my mouth. Tbh, ill be too busy playing bayonetta 2, smash 3ds and sunset overdrive at the time anyway

heyzeus002 commented on Play & Win: UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament - Live!:

There I was thinking people kept leaving because there weren't enough people in the lobby, how naive of me.i just assumed it was a quiet time and kept going as I wont het a chance to play now till after the expiry time so thought might as well do it in 1 go.these types of tournaments just dont work tbh with all the cpu/human issues and those comm errors messing things up

heyzeus002 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

The only problem I have with the directs is I find it tricky to temper my expectations.in spite of owning all 3 next gen machines, nintendo are closest to my heart due to being responsible for so many amazing experiences and memories over the years ever since I was a kid so for me the nintendo hype has no equal. Of course this is my fault and nothing to do with nintendo but its probably the only thing I don't like about the directs. More pertinently, I am ecstatic that we Europeans dont get treated like 5th class citizens anymore. That for me is the biggest thing nintendo have done.thank you sega dreamcast, you were seriously wounded but your soul still burns...

heyzeus002 commented on First impressions: HD Brawling with Super Smas...:

@Luna-Harmony same in the sense that the characters and core gameplay are the same but stages are different and both versions will have exlusive modes and such like.as far as im aware they arent going to be like other games where the console and handheld games are almost like two distinctly different games.

heyzeus002 commented on First impressions: HD Brawling with Super Smas...:

@SuperiorYoshi87 true in a sense about the community making it competitive but its give and take, the game has to allow that on its end.for instance, capcom vs snk 1 and sf x tekken (pre patch) weren't taken seriously at a competitive level due to issues with mechanics so even though the community wanted them yo be competitive, they just weren't mechanically so a lot will depend on the game and not just the community. Also, sf4 does not favour defensive play.nor does it favour offensive play.thats what makes it brilliant competitively, it is supremely well balanced and probably the best example in videogame history of a game that can cater to competitive and a non-competitve audience with equal aplomb.

heyzeus002 commented on Awesome New Hyrule Warriors Trailers Show Link...:

They should have got team ninja, platinum or capcom to do this sort of game.the combat could have had some depth then and would have been a better game at least. Still, the dw series sells well in japan and that's what nintendo need so hope it does well sales wise even if it is only in japan.

heyzeus002 commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:

Shame really.say what you will about ea but they do make a very good football game.the thing that annoys me is that they released fifa 13 on the u and then not the subsequent ones citing poor sales but don't seem to understand that most wii u owners aren't stupid and didn't buy it as it was fifa12 but with new kits. Which as someone above says is disgusting behaviour and one of the reasons why I cant wait to see the fall of ea.

On amore positive note, good e3 showing for the u, cant wait for most of the stuff shown and splatoon was great to see, bayo 1 packaged with 2 is awesome news for me as that was my personal game of last gen and zelda looks crazy.was surprised they didnt show a sizzle reel of ds vc games though seeing as it was announced a while back..

heyzeus002 commented on Dr Kawashima's Brain Training: How Old is Your...:

@readyletsgo I'm pretty much the same as you and was really hoping e3 would bring some megaton vc announcements, was hoping for gcn in particular. The thing I dont get is why cant they just release all the wii stuff?! Annoys me no end that these games are available but I want to play with the gamepad so they're no good to me at present.iwata was saying how he wants show the value of the gamepad and yet they fail to do simple things like this that would increase the uses of it.as far as im concerned, gamepad control compatibility should have been there on day1 with regards to wii vc and n64 vc.gcn would have been slightly trickier without the analogue triggers but still very doable.and like you say, its been 2 years and the wii u still has software drought issues and yet nintendo is the only company to have an extensive back catalogue spanning decades that they dont seem to be aware of.software droughts should not be in nintendo's lexicon oweing to their peerless history if only they used the vc properly.uber annoying. ..

heyzeus002 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

@KennyPowers it's obvious dude.in a racing game, going faster will help.it may not make you win but then I never said it will guarantee you 1st place all the time for the reasons that you mentioned. But you, good sir, are missing the point entirely.allow me to elaborate: if you are fire hopping in a race and say it helps you shave off 4 seconds in total so you are 4 seconds ahead of the pack.then lets just assume that a blue shell would make you lose 3.5 seconds.in this scenario you would still be .5 secs ahead beacause of the extra time shaved due to fire hopping.your argument while it may be more indicative of an actual race, is also inherently flawed due to the fact that you dont spend ALL your time getting hit.you spend more time actually moving than in hit/recovery frames.finally, if you cant grasp the concept that being able to GO FASTER IN A RACING GAME WILL HELP then there's not much else anyone can say as logic seems to have deserted you so stick a fork in me because I'm done..

heyzeus002 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

@KennyPowers how can going faster by making the boost more effective NOT be beneficial in an online competitive race? If there's a way to go quicker then of course it's going to help! Naturally, it may not help as much as it would in time trials when you have an empty track and no weapons to be hit with but going faster in a racing game is obviously going to help..

heyzeus002 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

@Einherjar the street fighter manual mentions only special moves and the like so is that the only 'valid' mechanics of the game?? The wonderful 101 manual makes no mention of pre buffered unite morph commands chained after one another so is that an invalid mechanic?? Manuals only scratch the surface of mechanics and to deem any that aren't included as invalid is quite silly and you may have misunderstood what the purpose of an actual manual is

heyzeus002 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Patch The Controversial ...:

It's not like a glitch shortcut in mk7 and in no way should be patched.it is a part of the mechanics and to argue against it seems silly just like it would be for someone to say that such a person only beat me because they can drift better than I can so it needs patching out.ridiculous indeed.street fightet is a good example in this case, so many characters have little tricks (frame traps, set ups, vortexes etc) that players discover after time which werent intentional by the developers but are left in.ultimately, everyone can do this fire hopping thing so heres a novel thought, instead of asking for a patch one could always actually practice

@Pit-Stain would have to agree. Enjoyed all of them to be honest but gba and gcn are joint crown holders for me.i like 8 a lot but at the moment I feel like the tracks in that (the 16 new ones) aren't of a consistently high quality, something I almost expect due to nintendo's quality design throughout 20 plus years.i feel like the tracks in 7 are much better if taken as a whole.but that's just me and I'm sure many people prefer the tracks of 8.

heyzeus002 commented on Brain Training / Brain Age Makes DS Début on ...:

@Technosphile I don't think that would work for a lot of games.the ds had two screens but it was essentially 1 screen with a strip of plastic in between so the dual screen worked because it took into account the mechanics of the human eyes. This is why the gamepad/tv combo isn't the same and doesn't work anywhere near as well as the ds/3ds.the gamepad is excellent for a lot of reasons but dual screen gaming akin to the ds just isn't one of those reasons. Of course this could all change if humans had 2 pairs of independent eyes..

heyzeus002 commented on Ubisoft Reconfirms Watch Dogs For Fall 2014 Re...:

Ill probably pick up the ps4 version at some point and not the wii u one.not really bothered about what they do with the gamepad as I only have 1 pair of eyes so can only look at either the tv or the gamepad so anything they do with it would work just the same on the tv from a pause screen.

heyzeus002 commented on Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Wii U Rumours P...:

@GuruOfGreatness I think what most people refer to when they put forward that argument is playing against different people so obviously the larger the player pool the more likely you are of playing different people. I jad blops 2 on wii u and I did find myself playing a lot of the same people on a regular basis. Personally im not too bothered by it, I had a blast with blops 2 regardless but I can understand why people cite the low wii u numbers as a reason not to get it on the u. Its the gimped versions with no dlc that bothers me more tbh. Ill be most likely getting cod aw on ps4 but this is great news for those of us that want it on wii u

Seems like a wise move and a good design choice to combat potential readability issues on the smaller screens.looking forward to the 3ds version more than the wii u one personally, something about playing smash on handheld seems decidedly 'next generation' to me.just hope it's mid summer as opposed to right at the end like in august or something.

One of my main hopes for e3 is gcn vc for wii u and this makes me hopeful..and then I realise it's nintendo so it's probably not happening soon.guessing they'll focus on ds vc for this e3 but like any nintendo fan I feel obligated to keep the dream alive!

heyzeus002 commented on Nintendo Download: 29th May (Europe):

@bouncer0304 re physical/ retail prices; businesses will always charge for a product what they feel people will pay.a lot of people wrongly assume that digital will cost less due to less cost involved. A good example our accounts lecturer used to give was nike trainers.do people really think they cost 100£ to make? Of course they don't but nike know that people are more than willing to pay so why charge less.it is often a misconception that companies base their prices on costs or profit margins but it is almost always the case that the price is determined by what people are willing to pay. And yes, nintendo account system is archaic, I hope they adopt sony's way because their system is fantastic.

heyzeus002 commented on Mario Golf: World Tour’s DLC Isn't Locked Aw...:

Whether its on disc or not is irrelevant really.the fact is if it was ready on day 1 it could have been on disc and part of the game as is . However, nintendo, like any other business needs to make money and this generation has provided ample evidence that gamers are more than willing to cough up for dlc, day 1 or otherwise. Ultimately, the morality of day 1 dlc is another debate entirely and as long gamers help publishers to maximise revenues in this way it will continue, supply and demand and all that. Personally I love mario golf and feel that for the price I paid it's fantastic value and a fantastic game with or without dlc. Also the price of the dlc is fair for the content imo as opposed to say fire emblem which I thought was way overpriced
