LavaTwilight commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:

Thanks for the review Martin. To be honest I was hoping for a "meh it's ok if you like the series" or a "this game is awesome like a thousand hotdogs (Eddie Izzard reference) you must buy it". Instead I got exactly what I thought the game would be like beforehand and I still don't know if I should buy this game or not... I love the series and I have F-Zero on the SNES, with my limited funds and ever-growing list of games-to-buy, I just don't know if this is one I'm going to be parting with my money for just yet...



LavaTwilight commented on Rumour: Ubisoft Working On 2D Prince Of Persia...:

BRILLIANT! Would definitely buy that game.
On topic however I don't see how any of those quotes can support a new PoP game. A new Rayman's game sounds more likely since the "limbs" are animated independently.
Saying that, if there was a HD remake of the original Atari Prince of Persia game, I'd definitely be getting my wallet ready.



LavaTwilight commented on Yoshi, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus Confirmed as...:

I love that ZS Samus and Sheikh are their own characters but I just hope they're not going to take up character slots that can go elsewhere. I'm sure they won't but still...
I was hoping for a surprise character announcement other than the pokemon but there we go...
And did anyone else feel that ZS Samus' boots were kind of similar to Bayonetta?



LavaTwilight commented on Feature: What We Want to See in Nintendo's Sup...:

I love your optimism... SSB on the Wii U for $60, buy it for the 3DS for $10... It's more likely to be $25 or something.

I for one wouldn't mind seeing a return of the points system. I love smashing my foes off every corner of the screen to get the 'Compass' points, attacking with every jump attack to get the 'Aerial' points or finding Mew in a Pokeball to get the 'Mew' points (I can't remember what their proper names were since I haven't played it in ages). It was simple but I missed it from Brawl and I'd love them to bring it back.

After that I'd love them to bring in a wider variety of single-player modes.



LavaTwilight commented on Nintendo Releases An Awesome Mario Kart Infogr...:

I've been playing Mario Kart since the start and it's my fav racing game series ever. I've gone through every last one of them and my top choice still is Double Dash. I must admit though, it may be removed from it's top spot if MK8 lives up to it's expectations!



LavaTwilight commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

I cannot wait for this! I hope the direct touches on one or two other games first, you know just to give updates on games we're already expecting, maybe even announce a new purchase for WiiSports or something else like that as a surprise. But on the main topic they simply MUST provide a release date. They'll be so sadistic to build hype like this over several days and then turn round and withhold the bit of information EVERYONE is waiting on! I hope for a surprise announcement of a newcomer too, maybe some new weapons, more info on single-player campaigns, why we must own both WiiU and 3DS copies, etc etc.
I'm looking forward to 8th :)



LavaTwilight commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:

I love the new video! Thanks!
It's a huge shame about the gamepad, I felt that this was a title that could really utilize it. Either by players. 2 players without the need of a split-screen or anything else. It's a shame it's such a let down but hey, we're only noticing it because it's there right?
I still can't wait for this title!



LavaTwilight commented on Mario Kart 8 Producer Explains The Absence of ...:

Why would I want to play tracks other people create? Nintendo's courses are so much fun. And in other games I've found the custom-courses tend to be hideous anyway. Very rare is there a course in there worthy of being there. So hyped for this game :)



LavaTwilight commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

But then I would've said that about the mobile gaming industry. Typically games have been for gamers only and that's it. Who'd have thought that people who would claim not to be interested in computer games and dedicated gaming consoles, would still be willing to spend so much time and money playing computer games just because it's on their phone with a pick-up-and-play style? That craze is still going on. Indie developers are indie developers because they stay indie. If they sign with a company are they still indie-devs? No, they're no longer independent. Now that the technology has been made available to the public, anyone who's interested in IT programming, there's always going to be indie developers.



LavaTwilight commented on These NES Remix 2 Screens Are Full of 8-Bit Go...:

I love the prospect of this game and first things first, I loved the original so much I'll be buying this as soon as it's out.

What I will say however is I'm disappointed the first one didn't feature as many 'remixed' stages as I'd have liked and instead just seemed to be 'do this, do that' which I could have done when playing the original game anyway.



LavaTwilight commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

I'm sorry but this is why the BS these companies give is just that: BS! Rayman was delayed so that it could be released across all platforms at the same time; a decision from higher management. The WiiU version is being delayed, but are the other platforms delayed so they could be released across all platforms at the same time? NO! Why not? Just tell us the truth! It comes down to money and profit and stop feeding us this BS because it tastes like BS! The only problem is if we boycott all studios (other than exclusives) for doing this, we'll buy no games.

That said I'm waiting for the WiiU release before purchasing Watch_Dogs. If it gets axed I'll purchase a PS3 version but only second hand to ensure Ubi don't get any money from it.



LavaTwilight commented on Matters of Import: Prepare To Die In Fire Embl...:

I admit I'm one of those whose first experience with FE was in SSB, and the first FE game played is Awakening. Still, I like to play games 'as they were' and as such I tried so hard to go through Awakening in the classic mode. That said I cared too much for my characters when they died and found myself going through innumerous restarts. I gave up after a while. I can't imagine going through this kind of game where I don't have the option of turning that off.

That said, bring to the WiiU Virtual Console and I'll be putting money down :)



LavaTwilight commented on SNES Classic Super Mario Kart Is Racing To The...:

I'll be repurchasing Mario Kart no matter what offers they had. I won't download Mario Kart 8 though as I have it pre-ordered atm for £35, so the discount won't justify it.

On the note of Mario Kart 8 on the Nintendo Website, has anyone else noticed that it's down for just 2players? Surely that should be 5???



LavaTwilight commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

I think anyone relying on that list too heavily is setting themselves up for disappointment. It'd be kool to have Dixie interchangeable with Diddy though, especially if we throw in Cranky too, similar to how the Pokemon Trainer was in Brawl.
I really don't see Snake making a return though, especially since we have Megaman as a third-party character.
It's not too late for Pacman though and there are several others I'm hoping for too :)

But not Wario...

Never Wario...



LavaTwilight commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

I'd love a new F-Zero game. It has such a huge backstory that you just don't get to see due to that it's a racing game. To get a new F-Zero with more than just racing elements... similar to GX but with a bigger deviation from racing. If that makes any sense?



LavaTwilight commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

I've searched online and can't find any info on it but then the internet wasn't really around back then to report it. I remember them doing it for me though and they did it for a friend of mine too. I don't need any other source to tell me they did or didn't do it.



LavaTwilight commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

Nintendo are a company of integrity and loyalty to their most loyal customers: they've proven that time and time again! At worst they'll ask all Wii-U owners to return their WiiU's to them so they can supply us with a new WiiU and allow all data to be transferred over. They did it before with the original NES (minus data transfer of course, though they did supply us with a free game). There's no reason they won't do that again.



LavaTwilight commented on Less Than 5% of Those Polled by the Game Devel...:

Facts - bah! You can use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true. The point is, how many developers come and go each year? Maybe their refusal to utilise Nintendo's experience is what causes them to go bust. Statistics are only good to look at. When it comes to the end results, they can often differ greatly from statistics!
