mozie commented on Inazuma Eleven Shoots And Scores On The North ...:

lol, this is so funny, not releasing it in the uk because of the voices when its available across the pond here in Ireland for €17.99, I've enjoyed the 3 games and I'am sure they were all pal uk carts, crazy. Good games though



mozie commented on Radirgy De Gojaru Website Shows Off The Firepo...:

Have the sega naomi cart and while its just not a very good shmup imho (chain/scoring system is poor) so many other greats that could have been ported, still i suppose its better than nothing, 3ds is seriously lacking some shmup love, wish there was an option to flip the screen though, horizontal your missing half the screen.



mozie commented on Matters of Import: Bahamut Lagoon Roars Onto T...:

@Alucard83 Off the top of my head, Tales of Vesperia, Eternal Sonata, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Resonance of Fate, Star Ocean: The Last Hope,
Record of Agarest War, Magna Carta 2, Enchanted Arms, Infinite Undiscovery, The Last Remnant and NEIR were some good jrpg times I had on my xbox last gen, sure action/shooters get all the press but there all titles there if your willing to look, suprising we got these considering the Japenese gamers bias towards Microsoft, which was also the best shmup platform last gen.



mozie commented on Pac-Man Museum Reportedly Cancelled on Nintend...:

don't think they'll cancel it rather than delay wiiu/ 3ds versions. didn't they say one version of smash would come out before the other? if they cancelled this, that would be stupid for them, they should know nintendo if where their audience is



mozie commented on Matters Of Import: A Peek Into The Tragically ...:

Was this released on wii u in Japan? I remember the wii version looked great but wonder what the wii u version adds although i imagine the gampad would come in handy, eitherways I doubt we'll see it oversees due to the small wii u userbase, translation costs & monthly fees, shame as it looks great.



mozie commented on Sega Has No Plans To Bring Alien: Isolation To...:

Idont know looking forward to playing this although I feel one of the main issues is that the wii u is seen as a second console rather than a main one, all my friends that own a wii u also have a 360 or ps3 and I think developers who are very firmiliar with the architecture of these consoles at this point are hedging their bets that most will pick it up on one of the other formats so why invest in a wii u port. unfortunately this is what ya get for bringing out a comparable console technically while there are two others that have been well established in the market for years. First party titles is what will sell nintendo hardware as always.



mozie commented on Looks Like Batman: Arkham Origins Isn't Gettin...:

That's really lame, ill prolly pick up one of the other version's now particularly if its the same price. sad thing is i'd rather buy the wii u version and support the system but coulden't justify buying a gimped version.



mozie commented on Mario Kart Arcade GP DX Racing to Arcades:

Wonder what hardware this is running on, have a triforce running the originals on naomi universal cab, wouldent mind giving this a go, thankfully no annoying announcer in this one :)



mozie commented on Review: EarthBound (Wii U eShop):

It's certainly strange that the same reviewer's opinion of the game seems to have changed fairly significantly since that review in which he claims the game "is just way too plain when it comes to graphics, music, and even gameplay" and this review in which he describes the visuals and soundtrack as "captivating". I know peoples opinions can change but this drastically? or a softer scoring policy here on nl? would appreciate an explanation.



mozie commented on Poll: Do You Follow and Watch Rival Console Re...:

Don't really regard any systems as rival's, prolly eventually get the nextbox and maybe ps4 depending on software/exclusives, was'nt impressed at all with ps4 reveal and not expecting the xbox one to excite me either. Either way ill probably wait until theres a few decent titles out, wont jump in at launch like i did with the u .



mozie commented on Talking Point: Wii U's Graphical Grunt is Laid...:

I dont know, I had alot of fun across all formats this gen as I'am sure I will with the next including wii u of course but still I have to say far more of those great experiences came from 360 & ps3 than the wii, there were some great titles for sure but the waggle factor because boring quickly and the majority of titles I enjoed the most were those which placed little emphasis on wiicentric features and for the most part would have been better without them at all. I'll probably invest in all next gen hardware and hopefully wii u wont get left behind in a couple of years like the wii did. Dont think anyone thats played all three can honestly disagree that both xbox and ps3 had far greater catalogue overall than the wii which missed out on a load of great multiplatform titles. I really couldent see myself getting by with just one console whichever one it may be.



mozie commented on Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 Will Be D...:

From Businesswire:
Publishing giant Electronic Arts has issued its financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012 and fiscal 2012 as a whole and, wouldn't you know it, a year with a new Mass Effect game results in revenue totals that are much higher than years without Mass Effect games.

Looking at just the fourth quarter of 2012, EA's total net revenue stacked up at $1.36 billion, a 24 percent increase over the $1.09 billion reported at the end of this same period last year. Net revenue generated from digital sales nearly doubled year-over-year, $419 million in Q4 2012 as opposed to $211 million in Q4 2011 – a 98 percent increase.

Packaged goods still made up the majority of the publisher's revenue, however, at $949 million, up from $879 in Q4 2011. Net income for the period was also up year-over-year, $400 million for the period ending on March 31, 2012 as compared with $151 million for the same period in 2011. Naturally, EA contributes its successful fourth quarter to the release of Mass Effect 3 and the continued popularity of FIFA 12.

Fiscal 2012 as a whole presents a slightly different story. While net revenue was up 15 percent year-over-year ($4.14 billion in fiscal 2012 vs. $3.58 billion in fiscal 2011), net income fell 263 percent, from $276 million in fiscal 2011 to just $76 million in fiscal 2012.
Looking forward to fiscal 2013, EA expects an approximate net revenue of $4.07 billion, $950 million of which it expects to earn during the first fiscal quarter of 2013, which ends on June 30, 2012.



mozie commented on Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 Will Be D...:

Understandable given the size of the current Wii u userbase, ill prolly pick this up on one of the other platforms now. Surprising no one has mentioned the bandwidth issues associated with digital downloads, many potential customers could be lost due to speed/size limitations. Dont think physical media is going away too soon, someday maybe but not for a while, regarding the pricing it's a moot point since the economic value of $50 is different for everybody, it may be alot for some people and nothing for others.



mozie commented on Review: Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 (Wii U):

I seriosly doubt anyone commenting is actually going to play this either way, the game is awful, should have received a 2 or 3 max. The narrative (which is written by Andrew Kreisberg, who's penned Fringe & Arrow episodes) is dissapointing as is the awful voice acting and the visuals are low budget to say the least. The game reeks of a forced, rushed out title that no one should have to endure. Play every other Wii U release before this one! (and yes that includes tank tank tank!)



mozie commented on Zero Escape Director Craves Mainstream Recogni...:

It'll certainly never reach mainstream when it's almost impossible to locate in highstreet retailers, I've searched high & low for a copy and it couldent be found anywhere, apparently its a GAME exclusive in uk/ireland & with GAME closing down here last year a physical copy cant be got anywherem, increidble as it sounds in 2013. Managed to snag a copy on Amazon for €30, a tenner cheaper than its eshop price, which is also a fiver more expensive than the ps stores version. Nintendo's pricing strategy is truely baffling at times.



mozie commented on Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward:

I've enquired at Gamestop and it appears this was a GAME exclusive, unfortunately as GAME has closed down all of its stores in Ireland, ill have to pick it up on Amazon, (or download) really enjoyed the first one.



mozie commented on Review: Mass Effect 3 (Wii U):

In all fairness, while playing the others does add to the experience, anyone who doesent have the option is still in for an incredible time with this and the comic does a decent job of explaining the backstory. Sadly I doubt we'll ever see 1&2 on wii u, unless this sells extremely well which I doubt as most will have played it on other systems. + The ending is Great!! :)



mozie commented on Review: Mass Effect 3 (Wii U):

About time this was reviewed, incredible game made only better on the wii u, (the inventory system works so much better on the gamepad) 3rd time going through it and 1st time on wii u(as a fully biotic this time) and still loving it, really is a shame that they skimped on the DLC though, had pay to download them on ps3 when they should have been included, really enjoying the multiplayer on wii u too.



mozie commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Community Aw...:

Some good titles here but no virtues last reward and nsmb u as best wii u? maybe its the sites demographic but both nintendoland & zombi u were far more deserving of the top spot imho, nsmb u is great and all but its strange to see a title with little to no innovation beat out an exceptionally innovtaive title (zombie u) AND the wii u's own superb instruction manual!! (nintendoland). Perhaps this is one of the reasons the big game developers favor duplication over innovation! Gamers are always calling for something new while eating up the same old games over and over,



mozie commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Year:

hmmm wii u retail is difficult, I think mass effect 3 should be in there somewhere if ports are included, as it stands its goty material on any system regardless of which version is the best, and the wii u version is really excellent. either that or zombi u for 1 & 2 and nintendoland for 3



mozie commented on Nintendo Is Sorry For Wii U Load Times, Is Wor...:

@manic221 Dont know what you've seen but there are 0 differences in load times between basic/premium, its not possible by any stretch, unless your suggesting the basic model has a slower processor/less RAM than the premium which of course would be idiotic. If you have a white wii u OR a black wii u your going to have the same issues with loading times.



mozie commented on Developer Interview: ZombiU Producer Talks Abo...:

The fact that both IGN & Gamespot gave RE6 higher scores than this completely invalidates them, was a bit iffy about their reviews prior to the release of this and haven't gone back to either since. Anyone who thinks RE6 is a better game than this is an idiot, plain & simple



mozie commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop Needs Patience:

It really seems like nintendo dont want to make money, while eshop exclusives will come in time and i'm sure there are titles in development that we havent heard of yet there's no excuse (particularly in light of the poor 3ds launch) for not having vc games actually on the wii u eshop.



mozie commented on Annoyed About Age Restrictions On The Euro Wii...:

Who ever thinks this isin't going to have a negative impact in some way is only fooling themselves, it will take a while to see the effects but lets just wait and see how many eshop titles fail to come to europe as a result of this silly decision/law. while nintendo may be complying to german laws, I'am sure there are numerous ways around this. Nintendo really don't seem to get the whole online thing at all do they, always shooting themselves in the foot. As much as it pains me to say it, ill be using psn & xbla predominantly for digital content, apart from eshop exclusives (none of which will be rated 18)



mozie commented on Nintendo Explains Why Nintendo Land Doesn't In...:

@Adam I agree, think its only an excuse, if this was indeed nintendo taking the some kind of moral high ground, what does that say for future releases, by not implementing online multiplayer they run the risk of distancing themselves from the very 'core' gamer's they keep going on about. Really hope this isin't a trend nintendo is going to carry on with. Nintendoland would have been great if you could have met up with friends in game and went to attractions together and it was a serious omission to an otherwise great title.



mozie commented on Review: Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (...:

Really surprised by this game, picked it up on a whim and its superb, best karting game out bar none. A huge amount of effort has gone into this,its a love letter to sega titles of old and the developers deserve credit, easiest thing would have been to simply add a few tracks/characters to the original game and release it as a sequel but they really outdone themselves with this.The courses and remixed soundtracks are truly excellent. Really hope this sells well across all platforms cause it really deserves it, the skies of arcadia stage deserves special mention. Just falls behind nintendoland as best launch title. seriously to anyone who's on the fence, pick it up!



mozie commented on Review: Angry Birds Trilogy (3DS):

nice collection albeit at a cheaper price, picked it up for €15 recently and I feel its worth it considering the amount of content here.
