Nintenjoe64 commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

I would be sad if I thought Advanced Warfare was going to be different to the last few CoDs but the multiplayer gets worse with every game and the single player is only good for the set pieces. They had it right with Modern Warfare and should have left it like that until they were able to make a significant jump in quality or add something new (I know there have been some good things added in the last 7 years but hardly enough for 7 £50 games). I would buy a Wii U version of the Modern Warfare Trilogy before I bought any of this new laser gun BS.

Nintendo needs to make a decent FPS and actually promote it, not Splatoon, Splatoon is its own thing. They pretty much invented the 'realistic' console shooter market by publishing Goldeneye and have since abandoned it.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

The prices are too high but a SNES/GBA RPG will last me weeks and only costs as much as a pint and a half of lager in London. I think they need to encourage multiple purchases with 'buy one/two get one free' offers and have steam-like sales on the stuff nobody is buying.

I am pretty sure Sega must have some kind of retro console plan by the way they have never really looked into bringing a significant number of Arcade, Saturn or Dreamcast games to consoles. If Nintendo could get Dreamcast and Saturn games on the VC, there'd be a revival. Some of the DC games would look incredible on the gamepad and the Saturn has dozens of games I could never get a reasonably priced PAL copy of.

I don't really need any of those except Waverace as I have all the other originals except Metroid which I have individually. I voted Metroid Prime Trilogy but only if they added some online features.

I'd like to see them retry Geist. It was let down by a few technical issues that the Wii U could sort out, not to mention that it is a pretty unique game. Like a post above me, I would prefer they went back further and maybe remade some NES and SNES classics in a modern 3D perspective. Games like the 2D Zeldas would still play well despite being based on relatively flat worlds.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Mario Kart 8's Hackers Open Up Over Their Plan...:

Piracy is bad but would probably put an extra 5 million Wii Us in circulation!

I hope they haven't made it easily available knowledge to hack MK8 because MKW online was a joke when the cheaters were in town. Nintendo need to add a 'kick cheat' button or just a report button.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Yokai Watch 2 Passes Two Million Sales in Japa...:

Ultra Street Fighter IV should be on Wii U without doubt. It's annoying to see so many titles getting repackaged for other consoles where they're not going to sell in particularly huge numbers while being missing out the console that actually needs a Streetfighter/Tomb Raider/GTA/whatever game.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Weirdness: A Resident Evil TV Show Has Been Pr...:

I think a TV show that followed the stories that you learn about as you play the games would be pretty good and might not even feel like a weak attempt at jumping on the Walking Dead bandwagon but this could be a new level of terrible not even seen in the films.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS Games That Are Perf...:

I went for Wii Fit U (possibly on my own). I don't think I can go back to running and playing football without a fit meter to show me how hard I tried.

The luge and skiing are two of the most fun minigames I've ever played and it's absolutely shocking Nintendo haven't made good use of the balance board for a proper Skiing/Winter Sports or a 1080 reboot. I've not heard great things about the Mario and Sonic ones but should probably try it before passing judgement.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Die Rise Could Arrive in Call of Duty: Black O...:

I still have the occasional game of BO2 but it was probably my least favourite CoD multiplayer ever. It was enough to make me avoid Ghosts. I might be persuaded by Advanced Warfare if it reviews and sells well on Wii U but would prefer them to make a Wii U exclusive Modern Warfare Trilogy. My favourite maps and weapons are still the original Modern Warfare. Although I think the franchise might skip Nintendo for another gen.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Hyperkin RetroN 5 Review - King Of The ...:

@stephenmunn I was joking. I know blowing was never actually meant to help but it always seemed to, even when tested in slightly controlled conditions such as trying a temperamental game up to five times without blowing and it didn't work til I blew in the slot. Even the within the last month, I got my SNES out, Top Gear didn't work so I blew into it and it worked after.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Preview: Exploring Black Magic in Bayonetta 2:

Do we actually know the state of play regarding the bonus inclusion of Bayonetta 1 in EU?

I'm sure it was confirmed but will it be download only or will there be a 2 disc edition? I think I would prefer discs but not sure.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Preview: Exploring Black Magic in Bayonetta 2:

If the the over the top action is as funny as W101 I will enjoy this game.

@Diddy_kong Check your NFS disc isn't dirty or scratched, I had a serious crashing problem with FIFA and it turned out someone got kebab grease on the disc. I think NFS and all my other games have always run fine for me. Having said that, I sold Sonic Racing because it was unplayable on certain multiplayer configurations. I never completed a 3 or 4 player race due to persistent crashing. I also get lots of 'non-starts' with my Wii U since the quick start thing was added.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

It amazes me how many people think this sort of game is button mashing. It's the same as saying Smash is just button mashing. It's only button mashing if you randomly hit buttons hoping to do something.
They're probably the same people that think A - Attack, B - Block, X - Parry is a deep combat system.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

Doesn't having 'an improved scrolling camera' completely ruin what made the original scary? HD remake of an SD remake. I wouldn't be surprised if this is followed by RE2 1080p without improved textures or models.

The thing I don't get about this is that RE:R did much worse on 360 compared to Wii U given the massive disparity in userbase. This would sell like dog business on Wii U so you can't really complain that it's skipping Wii U. It will be funny when it sells worse than revelations though :)
