Nintenjoe64 commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

It will really annoy me if some of the same reviewers give this better scores!!

The only things I would change about Zombi U are; slightly better controls, less screaming from the survivor, all the graphics up to the same level as the best looking bits and less loading. I would love a sequel on Wii U with a 3rd person view and a massive portion of London to explore without loading screens. I wouldn't care if they went Red Steel 2 and made the graphics basic but stylised instead of scruffy but detailed.

I hope this is so successful that Nintendo start making more things like this. They need to fill every niche that PS4 doesn't and being 'the console you can make your own games on' would probably be a decent selling point.

I wonder if they remove cloned levels.

I admire his conviction. I'm gonna try this out at some point. I'm pretty sure it will be bad because it seems to be a universal consensus at the moment but I often find fun when others don't.
I saw reviews of Zombi U that rated it down with the Flappy Bird clones, I loved the game when I played it.
I saw reviews of Ninja Gaiden 3 on Wii U that made it sound like a broken mess. I think it is only few rungs below Bayonetta on the beat em up ladder and has some aspects I actually preferred. (although a Platinum made NG game would be my dream come true)
Sonic Racing got good reviews for Wii U but I thought it was a stuttery, broken mess.

In summary, I won't knock it til I've tried it. For less than £10



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Plans to Bring De...:

@ZeroZX-Dev what do you know about HL3...? please share... My theory is that Valve are waiting for ray tracing to be feasible for gaming so they can make a game that looks like nothing seen before. I just hope they don't try to 'raise the bar for emotions in gaming' like every overly hyped gaming epic seems to try these days...

Half Life 3 - Gordon's First Baby!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo of America Confirms Plans to Bring De...:

I'm kind of shocked they bothered to clarify this. They normally let lies snowball but I guess they realised a game they paid for was getting too much nonsense spoken about it. This was a lightning quick response by recent Nintendo standards....



Nintenjoe64 commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

It's almost like they're scared of 'western' games being successful. The utter rubbish that has passed Nintendo's famous quality control in the last few years is unprecedented and it seems like every year a couple of really promising games get mothballed.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

I can't completely disagree but I sometimes think its their insistence on making the visuals of their games appeal to kids that are too young to play their games that holds them back. By the time a child has any say over what presents it gets they will probably think most Nintendo games are too young for them.

I think every time they tried to be bold their
fans deserted them and bought the Mario branded filler instead but I also think they're stifling the creativity of their own dev teams by having them make things like Wii Party U.

To be perfectly honest though, I'm not sure why any of this 'terrible e3' is headline worthy. Almost straight after launch they admitted 3DS 'would be their main profit driver' which basically meant Wii U was getting scraps. They even slashed their targets down to a level that made it clear they don't expect many more sales.



Nintenjoe64 commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

Most of the graphics on the trailer look fine but StarFox used to be a series that raised the bar in terms of graphics, sound, cinematics and playability. Nintendo need to grow some balls and make the NX infinity billion times more powerful than Wii U.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Poll: Early Impressions on Splatoon and That A...:

I've had no issues with connecting at all. The longest I've had to wait for a game is about one round of Squid Jump.

My only gripes are the lack of content and lack of changing loadout mid game. I also need a new gamepad battery and charger. I'd like to see 8 vs 8 because sometimes the maps seem a bit empty.

I don't fully understand why they couldn't get a couple of overly simplistic arenas as filler for launch but what there is, is fun.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric Blame Could L...:

I blame the Sonic fans as much as Sega. They've lapped up a series of sub par Sonic games, steadily worsening each time, going back as far as Sonic Adventure. That's why Sega will let any old rubbish with Sonic in it get made.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Horizon Chase Pays Tribute To SNES Classic Top...:

I was skeptical until I saw Barry Leitch was involved. I still listen to the Top Gear soundtrack when I go running. I wonder if Kemco ever revisit Top Gear. I've been told the BBC pretty much killed any chance of any more games called Top Gear
