james_squared commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

I just don't see how this is that much different than how the PS3, XB360, and Wii were in the so-called last generation.

If you wanted high-powered action games, then you'd need a PS3 or an XB360 (or a Windows comparable PC, I suppose). If you wanted a different style of game and a different gameplay experience than either of those could deliver, then you used a Wii.

This seems very similar to me, except that I now need to replace PS3, XB360, and Wii with PS4, WBOne, and Wii U, respectively, in the paragraph above.



james_squared commented on Nintendo Download: 16th January (North America):

Unepic looks pretty neat. I looked at a bunch of the reviews and videos for the PC version and it seems like a game I would like to play. It doesn't look like there is any special Wii U functionality to it though, but it still looks like fun.

I'm so very on the fence about Knytt Underground. I played the demo on the Mac and it was good. I might just wait until a sale or something. Hmm...

So many decisions. Maybe I should just focus on work instead...



james_squared commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):

It's been fun so far. I've done the Mario Bros. challenges already as that's one of my favourite NES games. I actually didn't know I could knock out the green and red fireballs.



james_squared commented on Review: Wii Sports Club: Tennis (Wii U eShop):

When the online works, I will admit that it's great. Lots of fun. But, when it's bad, it's just awful. Not too sure why the online matching system would even let me match up with some of these games where opponents have an irritatingly amount of lag. I hope this fix this soon--I don't want to play with people when there is only 1 bar out of 5 for lag. It's a total waste of time.

Getting the Marvel game! My daughter has been asking for it as she loves LEGO and superheroes--she's going to be the Flash tonight so she go super fast and get as much candy as possible. She's a big fan of the LEGO City game as she likes making traffic jams with busses and what not.



james_squared commented on Feature: Why Zelda: Wind Waker HD Is The Perfe...:

My daughter and I have played Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword together several times. She loves the story and always knows where we are in the game and what we need to do next. I find that quite helpful as, well, I do tend to forget what's going on in the game!



james_squared commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About the 2DS and Wii ...:

An interesting read. I did buy the WiiU because of ZombieU. That was the title that did it for me. Great game. Lots of fun. Scared me several times. Uses the GamePad better than just about any game on the WiiU; honourable mention to Nintendo Land. I'm a big fan of the GamePad, I'd just like to see it used more fully. Where are those creative game developers?



james_squared commented on We're Getting Digital Right On 3DS And Wii U, ...:

I'm very happy with their eShop. The release prices on the eShop seem to be the same as the release prices for the physical copies. If I wanted to wait a month or two or three to save a few dollars, then I'd just wait and get a physical copy. I have no need to have a bunch of boxes on the shelf to impress people...I find that notion odd. It's just more physical clutter that I'm not interested in having. Sure, there'll be some fun times when my external HDD crashes or my Wii U dies, but I'll worry about that one when it happens. And, yes, the external HDD will crash...that's what they's just a matter of time.



james_squared commented on Review: Pikmin 3 (Wii U):

My daughter, who is six, really enjoys the game. She mostly plays the missions rather than the story, though. We also have a great time using the multiplayer.



james_squared commented on The Wonderful 101 Demo Coming to Europe Today:

I actually don't mind the earlier release date in Europe as this gives me more time to read reviews and watch gameplay footage to make a more informed choice. This is quite useful for games that I'm not entirely sure I want to buy such as Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101.
