jariw commented on Armillo Update Arrives in Europe:

Nice! I have downloaded the update now and I look forward to finally play it. I'm busy with Teslagrad right now and Hyrule Warriors comes really soon, but I think there will be some time for Armillo as well.



jariw commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

I was going to get this game anyway, but great review! Does anyone know if Teslagrad also is a 1080p game, like Steamworld dig was?

@rjejr Please note that Cubemen 2 only has online multiplayer. To me, that's unfortunate, since local multiplayer like Swords & Soldiers HD would be lots of fun. The mode I like the best is the new Wii U-specific mode, where a defeated unit turns to the other team.



jariw commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

If it would release in May, it would compete with MK8. With a release in November, it will compete with Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Smash U, the MK8 DLC release, and also to some extent Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.



jariw commented on Dahku Creations Announces Departure From Game ...:

I think the bad quality thing is mainly a U.S. eShop issue. In Europe, we sometimes get to wait forever to get games like Ittle Dew and Shovel Knight, but on the other hand we don't get the really quick-developed budget stuff.



jariw commented on Nintendo of America Unleashes Wii U Game Sizzl...:

@sinalefa I agree that this reel is very focused. The left out Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, which are both fantastic games (the fact that there are more great games available today, not present in the reel, can enhance the message for a "core" player with knowledge). They also left out Mario Party 10, Mario Maker and Mario vs. Donkey Kong U, which helped the "core" focus of the reel.



jariw commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

So nice to hear that they did a good job with the GamePad adaption! And according to Image & Form, this game is 1080p/60fps as well. I will absolutely buy this.



jariw commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

@jakysnakydx From an old NoA document: Lot Check is made up of dedicated game testers who methodically explore every possible unwanted scenario that your game may encounter. Their purpose is to ensure that players are satisfied with a consistent, bug-free interface to your game and to the Nintendo- specific features. Lot Check also tests your game on every hardware revision that Nintendo releases (hence the name “Lot Check”).

AFAIK, the lot check would check for game changing bugs, but (as you said) not for any quality control of the game itself.



jariw commented on Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop):

@ToxieDogg Hope those who complains about the graphics quality on Miiverse also recognize that the sound design of this game is better than almost any game available. Once the frame rate issues are resolved, this will great, IMO.
@YannEA Thanks for your hard work on this game!



jariw commented on Review: Armillo (Wii U eShop):

To me, this review of "Armillo" confirms that "Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails" was treated really unfair in the NintendoLife review (by the same reviewer). I'll continue to play Armillo when the frame rate patch arrives.



jariw commented on Video: Hands-On With Captain Toad: Treasure Tr...:

@SavoirFaire @JasonX @sinalefa FWIW, according to my Wii U, I've now put more than 120 hours into Pikmin 3, but I got all the DLC as well. Obviously, the basic single-player campaign was the minor part of that time. In terms of hours played, that's my most played Wii U title almost every month, and we just keep on playing here (as local multiplayer).

I personally don't look at time vs. money in terms of gaming. Quality gaming time and memorable moments are worth much more to me than lots of gaming hours.



jariw commented on Exclusive: Getting Into Sync With Dead Pixel E...:

I can't see how holding the Wiimote could be tiring, since the device is pretty lightweight (unless you play for hours at a time without break). I play Pikmin 3 pointing at the screen with the Wiimote for fairly long sessions without any problems.



jariw commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (Europe):

Armillo was the game that really got my attention to the Wii U eShop indies almost a year ago. I intend to get Armillo, Guacamelee! and Flowerworks HD if the average reviews of these games are favorable.
