maneauleau commented on Review: LEGO Dimensions (Wii U):

Not sure I will buy this for my kids but this "...local co-op play is nicely implemented (one player on the TV and another on the GamePad)" is always a great thing!



maneauleau commented on Review: Skylanders SuperChargers (Wii U):

"Another good advancement in the value stakes is being able to use previous year's portals. Unlike Trap Team or Swap Force, Superchargers works with any of the previous Portals...It's good to see Activision honouring the time and money spent on previous iterations of the game"
Does that mean we can use the traps in this version?



maneauleau commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Well if NX is a handheld then yes it will be less powerful than a PS4.
If it's a console then it doesn't matter really so long they nailed down the services this time. Nintendo doesn't really need to beef up its console specs wise. It just need to beef up its services: Better VC, proper accounts, cross buy, cross save, cloud saving, better friend features, internal voice chat, no region lock, eShop accessible from the web for everyone etc.



maneauleau commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:

This article make it sounds like Nintendo games won't be on Youtube anymore. People don't go on Youtube to see Mr X streaming this game. And when they do then they don't really care about that game they just care about Mr X. And Mr X has never really been streaming Nintendo games beforehand so...

In any case people go on Youtube to check the game out so it does not matter who plays it. There will still be many Youtube videos with Nintendo games from Nintendo channel, from Treehouse, from game sites, from enthusiast not caring for money, from enthusiast caring for money etc...

I am not saying theirs ways are the best but I don't think their games are really suffering from this.



maneauleau commented on Talking Point: Star Fox for Wii U is an Ongoin...:

I am surprised you did not mention the StarFox levels in Smash. I think they are gorgeous and really showcase what the mood and graphics of a StarFox Wii U could be like. In any case they have me hyped every time I play them.



maneauleau commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

"Miyamoto also hinted — but didn't confirm — that the next Mario title might be reserved for Nintendo's next console, rather than the Wii U"
I am sorry but I don't see that hint in what he says. He just says that we will see a Mario game in the next console.



maneauleau commented on Developer Interview: Aurelien Regard Talks Abo...:

The unique tastes of the creator along with his intrinsic artistic talent, his hard earned freedom and his passion already show on the small trailer. I will definitely pick this one up. Thanks for the nice interview and the link to Kingdom Grand Prix game which I didn't know.



maneauleau commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

Nintendo definitely need to make amiibo appealing to kids if they want to succeed. And so far this implementation is not appealing to kids. Nintendo won't be successful with amiibo if they only rely on Nintendo fans. These sold out reports are only indication of limited supply and eager fans. The kids/parents that are buying the amiibo now are going to be disappointed when realising that the fun isn't there and won't be coming back for more. I hope we see a glimpse of something in a direct in January.



maneauleau commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Fans Fi...:

If only they at least allowed friend sharing levels that could have become a way to prevent "mature" stage from proliferating and still secure some form of sharing.
Oh well I guess I will do some old school copy then ^^
Nice vids btw



maneauleau commented on Interview: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's De...:

@sinalefa Well that might be true for you but I'd like to have the choice because I actually have fun unlocking stuff and seeing what I am unlocking.
It's not the end of the world I just hope this is not a new trend or that next time they'll leave us the option to choose.



maneauleau commented on Interview: Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker's De...:

@rjejr I am not sure about the items but I am sure the characters, trophies and achievements are all shared.
I know it's absurd and it's also absurd none of the reviewers talked about that. I mean surely lot of Wii U owners share their console with their kids or siblings.
It could have been nice as an option to let us have the choice.



maneauleau commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Nintendo doesn't need to release a phone they need to release phone apps that act as baits to attract phone users to Nintendo devices. They also need to release a phone app for current Nintendo users. We should see something next year. Better late than never.
Phones have crap batteries and ergonomics: Phones are not gaming devices.



maneauleau commented on White Wii U 8GB System Trade Price Has Been Sl...:

32GB is nowhere useful if you go the digital route. Concrete example? I bought Ken's Rage 2 on the eShop since it's only available digitally and it's almost half of that space that vanished. White model is really attractive now especially since the deluxe digital program linked with the black model runs out at the end of the month. If you are in for a Wii U go for this it's dirt cheap. This bundle is fantastic



maneauleau commented on Amazon UK Offers Bargain Prices to Shift Its W...:

These are great fantastic marvellous deals especially since not only as said above that even with 32Gb you need an external HD but also because the deluxe digital promotion, linked to the black 32GB model, ends end of December of this year anyway.
