jariw commented on Feature: Assessing Affordable Space Adventures...:

@Action51 It's single player OR co-op multiplayer. The brilliant thing about the game's design is it's all very transparent. It's the same game in co-op as in single player, but in single player you do all tasks yourself. Co-op is less tasks to do for each player, but gets harder at the same time as you need to co-op and sync all actions. I have played both single and co-op, and they are 2 completely different gameplay experiences. Highly recommended to play both styles.

Strange list. To omit games like Stealth Inc. 2, Nova-111, The Swapper, Art of Balance, Child of Light and many others while including a game like Ducktales Remastered...?

@brandonbwii You have great taste! Affordable Space Adventures, Runbow, Shovel Knight is my personal rank of those games



jariw commented on Hover: Revolt of Gamers Will Be "Properly" Rec...:

I fail to see what's so extremely demanding in this game that it couldn't just be created in Unity? Flat cartoon-style surfaces and fairly simple lighting? Compared to what Shin'en have achieved in Fast Racing NEO, this game is nothing.



jariw commented on Feature: What We Expect from Nintendo Direct -...:

"It's also extremely likely that Xenoblade Chronicles X will get a decent chunk of time"
Sure, devote a global Nintendo Direct to a game that has been available for half a year in Japan, and it even got its own Direct...



jariw commented on The Next Nintendo Direct is on 12th November:

@XCWarrior You're joking? Delaying the release of software because they judge the software need more work is not lying, it's delaying software. Putting an official note on the official Nintendo Direct page 2 days before a Direct (which probably is fully recorded by now) that it will not feature mobile and NX things, and then change and do something else 2 days later would be a lie.



jariw commented on Review: Toto Temple Deluxe (Wii U eShop):

Thanks for the review, I'll get this game! A number of the recent indie couch multiplayer games has been much better as party games than many of Nintendo's own offerings.



jariw commented on Rumour: Data Miner Uncovers Evidence Of Twilig...:

Why is everyone focusing on the icon? The title for the eShop entry was found as well.
Am I seeing things or is title ID 000500001019C800 really "THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Twilight Princess HD"?! seems like pretty straightforward info to me.



jariw commented on Nintendo Download: 15th October (Europe):

I'll absolutely get Momonga Pinball Adventures, if the Wii U version is good. I played it on the iPad, and a console version will be better than 90% of that VC crap many people seems to be want to replay on this site.



jariw commented on English Version of SplatNet Website for Splato...:

@Quirky Turf War is also a place to fill slots on new gear. I've seen lots of level 45+ with empty gear slots in Turf War.

If you get a couple of bad losses in Turf War, try exiting the lobby and rejoin a new lobby. That might join you with players a different playing style (Turf War matchmaking is based on playing style) and/or a different skills.



jariw commented on Review: Nova-111 (Wii U eShop):

@shani No, I don't think it's that comparable to Affordable Space Adventures. From what I've played from Nova-111 so far, the Wii U game that it remind me of the most is Steamworld Dig.

Affordable Space Adventures is very much its own thing.



jariw commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Why does the article compare the current Wii U sales numbers with the lifetime sales of the Wii? Wii sold 67M after 3 years.

@PlywoodStick According to Wikipedia, the lifetime Dreamcast numbers are 10.6M? What numbers do you have? The Wii U figures in May was 10.5M. And the Japan Wii U sales alone are much more than 100,000 since then.



jariw commented on More Than A Million Super Mario Maker Levels H...:

@SuperWiiU Many uploaders get passed the 10 upload limit quite quickly, and the requirement to get 20 uploads isn't particularly difficult. Why would auto-deleted levels on the server affect the statistics regarding number of uploads? Even if a level is deleted, it has still been uploaded?



jariw commented on Guide: 9 Tips for Playing Runbow:

@13AM_Alex Any word on when the update for the lags when running on secondary HDDs will be out? I'll try to move it to the console storage instead, even though it's not an optimum solution for me. Great game, BTW!



jariw commented on Some Western Splatoon Players Would Prefer Not...:

BTW, terrible that NintendoLife link to a Kotaku article as "news". Kotaku is just filled with click-bait articles, and NintendoLife wants to go that way as well?

As many has commented already, lag goes both ways since Splatoon is P2P. The biggest problems I have had with lagging players has been with the (regional) Splatfests prior to the 2.0.0 update.

Most matches I play (rank A/S players, mostly level 35+ players) usually are 6-7 out of 8 Japanese players. I think the reason why many Japanese players are good is because they play the game a lot.



jariw commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

@multicoloredyoshi The toolset is not a "statement on how limited it is", since the purpose of Super Mario Maker isn't to recreate games that are already available. Super Mario Maker can combine gameplay elements in ways that no Super Mario game currently available has done. You're comparing apples and tomatoes.



jariw commented on Splatoon Version 2.1.0 Update to Fix Some Bugs...:

@gatorboi352 The matchmaking was bad enough during the last Japanese Splatfests, when America was also a sleep. And probably since many S and S+ ranks skips random ranked now. The user base has probably been split enough now, with random ranked, Private battles and Squad Battles..



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

Great! I saw some gameplay footage of the full game (having briefly played the promo demo), and it's a game where everything seems to be done right. And all currently available reviews praise the game. Looking forward to the European release!
