@Marshi I agree, when was the last time someone bought a game after it got a score lower than a 8.0? Ign scored demon souls low because the review found it to be to hard.

Not to mention that most game reviewers have no business reviewing games as they have little idea what it take to make one.

@Shroom_Muncher Well you can't expect to get a shiny new game with all the bells and whistles without showing a little support. No matter if the game has a few flaws. At the end if the day Wii U owners picked the console they bought. If they don't support it then they are also to blame for when it fails.I love my Wii u but I know what it is. Its a Nintendo game player that my daughter uses to watch nexflix on. Oh and sometimes Disney infinity. I play Zelda on it and that's about it. I have a PS4 and love it but its just for me. The Wii u is for the family.

@Shroom_Muncher because publishers look at sales numbers. If they make no money or even loose money on releasing a game on the Wii u then support will stop. Buying the Wii u vers of the past 2 games could show the publisher that there is a possibility to make money. Its common sense really

P.s. if you don't own ether bat man games released in the Wii u then you could be part of the problem. If every Wii u owner bought a copy of those two games it could let the publisher know that the game has a home on the Wii u.

At this point I know this is not a shock to anyone. Good news is that in the mean time Smash Bros., and Mario Cart will be released. I sure that there will be a news release on a New Zelda title. Just let go of the thought that 3rd party's are going to support the Wii u and you all will be a lot happier.

Lopezdm commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May Be Playing Catch-...:

@JaxonH He is saying that they should have come out to devs and asked what hardware would make Nintendo's console good enough to develop on. Believe it or not some devs want to push the boundaries for what they have done before. It's how you stand out. You make the new IP that blows other out of the water. The Wii U was old before it was released, and for Bethesda developing on the console would be a step backwards.

Lopezdm commented on Sam Fisher Shows Off His Abilities In This New...:

It looks pretty bad ass, the cqc is spot on. This IP has changed for the better over the years. It makes you feel bad ass when you take out 5 people and walk away like it was nothing. I still might hold off until the reviews come out though I have little time to play games and I don't really need another game gathering dust.

Lopezdm commented on Hardware Review: 3DS Circle Pad Pro XL:

I was thinking of buying this just because of comfort. I have big hands so the buttons on the the right side of the 3ds XL are still to close to the edge making me have to use my thumb in a odd angle. After a hour of that I feel like I am getting arthritis. So the added space would remedy that. I just don't know if 35.00 US is too much. I think 25 or 20 would have been a better price. I think I will wait.

Lopezdm commented on Aliens: Colonial Marines Cancelled on Wii U:

It’s not a huge surprise considering the sales numbers on the other consoles. It seems once again the Nintendo nation was dealt the bait and switch. I think that it’s unfair how dishonest that game developers and publisher are being with gamers. The video that was shown at the game show was nothing like the finished product. The video was better then the gold release of the game. That’s really just crazy considering the short amount of time that went into making the video footage compared to the rest of the game. If they would have continued the same kind of effort it would have been a better game. It’s just sad that there is no support for the Wii U at the moment. As the PS4 and Next Box come out the amount of money that it will take to develop games will be much higher then it is now. The costs of a game will increase as well. The Wii U will have the same development cost of the current gen and sell at the 59.99 while the PS4 and next box will range at 69.99 and 79.99 per game. I will not be supporting those consoles because I am not made of money.

Lopezdm commented on Talking Point: The Downside to Delayed Release...:

I find it hard to care about this game or the politics that go along with it. I know a lot of the buys they would have had left with the decision to delay. Now that people have forgotten about the game some what, Rayman stands the chance to sell almost thing like the last game they released. Rayman is not a must own game though fun to play its easily forgotten. It would have been better to release as promised and see how sales went and released if the demand was high enough. That would have avoided pissing people off and losing sales on the Wii U side of the market.

Lopezdm commented on Epic Games: Developers Can Use Unreal Engine 4...:

I knew the comments made before were just BS. The Wii U gets this rap for having no power but it will cost less money to develop for compared to the PS4 and Next box. I think we will see developers come back to Nintendo after the PS4 game sales are in. The PS4 games will cost 69.99 while Wii U games will sell at the current 59.99. Have fun trying to talk your parents into buying games for kids.

Lopezdm commented on Epic Games Rules Out Unreal Engine 4 For Wii U:

@AgentAPE Your right, most developers didn't a reason for the next gen to come right now. As for the comment made above, I think that being a little more professional would go a long way. I would like data on why Unreal 4 couldn't run on the Wii U not some ego pushed answer that we got.

prime example

Next gen games will require a 10.00 bump? Nintendo is releasing it's games at the same price or less (59.99). I just don't see playing 70 bucks for a game when that used to be the price for the collectors edition. If there is a 10 dollar bump every 5 years then we will paying 100 before we know it. I think in the next 2 years that developers will see that developing for Sony and Microsoft is a bigger risk then NIntendo due to the fact that one poopiedoodledingdongs game could close their doors due to the amount of money invested. We are very jaded as gamers and we are hard on games. If you hear that a game sucks from anyone you are less inclined to buy it. If Nintendo has the same game for 10 bucks less what game are you going to go with?

Lopezdm commented on Epic Games Rules Out Unreal Engine 4 For Wii U:

Epic games isn't one of those developers that doesn't have a deadline but so many other developers do. I wonder how much money it's going to take to make a PS4 and 720 game next to a the Wii U. With 2 to 4 year turn around on games what will the quality be? Will developers make any money or die out because they didn't have the resources to finish the ideas they had for their IP. After having a lengthy conversation with my game history professor I came to a retaliation that Nintendo could be as crazy as a fox. I think they could be banking on the overwhelming tole that it's going to take to make PS4 and 720 games. Those 2 console are going to be more powerful but what if the games don't sell because they are broken and suck? Dreamcast anyone?

I have Come to the realisation that next gen consoles like the PS4 and 720 are going to be to expensive to develops for. With the time cycle developers have to Make games its going to make every game a flop. The production costs Are just To much and the payoff to little. Nintendo seems to be the only company that has prepared for this. I am just waiting to see how long it takes for developers to realise that it's less expensive to Make games for the wiiu.

Well the game turned out to be a flop and a lot of people were pissed. They might have shot them selves in the foot by releasing the game so far after the other versions. People know its was rushed and not was shown at game shows so understandably they are upset about it. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo had less interest in the game then before.
