Whoa this looks amazing! And sounds amazing!

This is all fantastic, but am I the only one wishing for some proper battle mode arenas?
Razzle commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):
I might be in the minority but the Zen pinball tables are a day 1 purchase for me!
Razzle commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):
Steamworld Dig is one of my favourite indie games. I highly recommend if you don't already own it.
Razzle commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:
WiiU is all I need, I have only the time for one and it must be Nintendo. I have a kid on the way and I will be brainwashing it with all things Mario and Zelda, heheh
Razzle commented on Interview: Zen Studios Outlines Its Ongoing Su...:
Zen games are excellent, I own everything these guys have released. Castlestorm & Pinball are awesome!
Razzle commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:
I'll tell you what 'breaks the magic'. Getting hyped up about Watchdogs for a year and then being told it's 'delayed' for WiiU. Then trying to avoid reviews and spoilers that might dampen my enthusiasm, but eventually I get to the point where I don't care if I ever play it or not. Oh yes, the magic is broken.
Razzle commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:
I have bought AC3, AC Black Flag, Just Dance 2014, Rayman Legends and ZombiU. I really enjoyed all of them, ZombiU being an absolute stand-out (I have never felt so much dread in a game). Ubisoft keep delivering late games though, at higher prices than other platforms. In these conditions they will always post poor results.
Razzle commented on Video: The Demon Legion Look Fiendish In This ...:
Swords and Soldiers was terrific fun! This is a day 1 buy for me. I recommended anyone who hasn't played it to pick it up on WiiU (it's only a couple of bucks). Perfect for off-TV play and excellent fun!
Razzle commented on Wii U Owners Finally Get The Nuketown 2025 Map...:
Dusty copy? No sir, my copy of Black Ops gets a fairly regular thrashing, it is still the best online shooter for WiiU by a long shot. There is still a decent amount of people playing, and the Nuketown map is actually pretty fun. It's a small map and very hectic!
Razzle commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:
The strength of every business is in it's people. Nintendo will miss you Dan, best of luck with the future!

I applaud this man!
Razzle commented on First Impressions: Exploring the Depths of Aff...:
Looks amazing, and as a WiiU owner I really want to support developers who put the effort in to make a unique, worthwhile experience. I will buy for sure!
Razzle commented on Interview: Nifflas Takes Us On An Affordable S...:
After Knytt Underground this is a day 1 buy for me - I like the cut of this guy's Jib.
Razzle commented on New Converse X Super Mario Bros. Shoes Are Ste...:
These should be a Club Nintendo offering. Probably 10,000 points though...
Razzle commented on Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn Slam Dunks Its Fundin...:
$450,000!!! Lordy Lordy that is a lot of money. I have no idea how they hit this target.
Razzle commented on Upcoming Child of Light Patch to Rename Diffic...:
@Spoony_Tech Yeh controlling the glowbug is ok in single player (touch screen or right stick) but when playing co-op it is done with a Wiimote d-pad only. There is no option for the WiiU Pro Controller or for motion controls with Wiimote. No big deal but it would have been nice.
Razzle commented on Mario Kart Month: An Outsider's View Of Super ...:
Kids these days...
Playing this through on 'normal' with my other and we're having fun. The story and narrative is a bit wishy washy but it's cool. I wish they included motion control with the Wiimote for the glowbug, using the d-pad is ugly.
Razzle commented on Cosmochoria Confirmed for Wii U Release:
Thank you fellow WiiU owners! I pledged on this game when it was at 10K and I wasn't sure it make the WiiU goal. Am very happy it did, I think it will be a great game.
Razzle commented on Exclusive: Opposable Games On Bringing Second-...:
I just backed this (it's $25 for the the WiiU potion) And am hoping heaps of other WiiU owners get behind this. It sounds unique and cool.
Razzle commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:
Cult County, I backed it. Depressing. I also backed 'Paradise Lost' which looks superb and it only had to hit $75000. Unfortunately for Renegade Kid, I don't think a lot of people put their money down until a project is close to making it - better to have a small target to get the project up and running, then hit stretch goals. Good on them for going big, but ultimately it has backfired.
Razzle commented on Forgotten Classics: Resident Evil Code: Veronica:
I finished this on the Dreamcast and looking back it was one of the best games I played on the system. It was genuinely scary as well, definitely a Resident Evil classic worth playing.
Razzle commented on Space Shooter Cosmochoria Lowers Wii U Kicksta...:
@mantrakid That would be awesome, thank you so much and best of luck with the campaign!
After hearing how passionate this guy is I couldn't help but chip in with $9.
Razzle commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:
I posted a picture from the credits of Donkey Kong TF, with the words 'Great game, loved it!' and got a warning about posting spoilers....sigh.
Other than this, I think it's a funny community which Nintendo is obviously piling resources into to keep it safe for all ages. I am fine with this, and I think parents would greatly appreciate it.
Razzle commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
AC Black Flag and the amazing Advance Wars, my weekend requires nothing more.
Razzle commented on Site News: Tom Has Evolved Into A New Form: Ed...:
Big congratulations. This site has become my go-to site for Nintendo news and original articles and I credit Tom for being a huge influence. Well done Mr Whitehead!
Razzle commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:
Off TV play is essential for my household. The wife is always watching something on TV, it allows me to stick headphones in and still enjoy my WiiU. I've also noticed the internet browser is super fast, much faster than my iPad or phone, so I use this all the time. The WiiU Gamepad is an older gamers absolute best friend, I feel like it was made for older gamers with families who need to fit gaming in around other competing interests.
Razzle commented on Feature: Lifting the Curtain on Game Ratings a...:
Typical Australian approach - bog everyone down in red tape so a few public servants with can justify their existence. Wrap the kids in cotton wool so much they suffocate! This is a terrible approach and makes me feel for Indie developers especially. Plus, I am an Australian gamer and I really want to play these games!
Razzle commented on KnapNok Games and Nifflas Collaborating on Wii...:
Bring it on, I absolutely loved Knytt Underground and these guys seem to really want to make something cool with the dual screen of the WiiU. This could be a real gem exclusive.
Razzle commented on Month Of Kong: The Making Of Diddy Kong Racing:
Razzle commented on Space Simulator "Space Pioneer" Shoots for the...:
I truly hope so. I would love this to turn out well, and if I see some gameplay footage I will back it. Even if the game is just flying around visiting areas in our recreated galaxy. This would be so cool.
Right now though it is pie in the sky, some artwork and lots of ideas. I just can't put money down at the stage it is at right now.
It's $60 to get the WiiU version, only available as a physical copy. Why? Something about this seems overly ambitious, I don't see any gaming pedigree from these guys. I'm keen, but need more to convince me.
Razzle commented on Nintendo Reveals Release Windows For a Host of...:
This is awesome. These games are perfect for times between major releases. My experiences with Knytt Underground, Nano Assault, Trine 2, Castlestorm and Rush have been excellent.
Razzle commented on Weirdness: New Scientific Research Reveals The...:
I remember doing these science projects in primary school, and it was always tough as a kid to come up with something to "research". This kid has chosen a subject matter important in the wider community (texting while driving), and made it fun for himself to experiment. Clever kid! I think Nintendo games attract the smartest kids, but I am biased.
Razzle commented on NES Remix Update Adds Wii U Pro Controller, Re...:
I am really happy with this, playing with the Gamepad was really putting me off, I find the d-pad akward. I was thinking Nintendo should have released a limited run of NES style controllers to play this game, as an older gamer playing these games with anything but a NES controller is just not right! I will gladly settle for WiiU Pro Controller though.
Razzle commented on Dakko Dakko's Rhodri Broadbent Emphasizes The ...:
I can't think of anything more boring than having 3 systems all doing the same thing. On the other hand, I don't want the system I support (WiiU) to lose out on every big title. You have to make sacrifices I guess to enjoy something unique, I've not regretted my decision for a second.
Razzle commented on Ninterview: Stepping Into The Nintendo Arcade:
What a cool collection, great article!
Razzle commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:
It is a big shame to hear this, but EA have to shoulder some responsibility. When the WiiU launched, I was in the game shop and Mass Effect 3 was $70. I remember looking in the 360 section and you could get the whole trilogy for $60. This made no sense and was a poor decision from EA. I actually picked up ME3 eventually when it dropped to $25 and really enjoyed it, but it was an old game by then (and it was hard to avoid spoilers) and was only worth $25. They are also wrong about WiiU demographics. There is a huge older fan base on Nintendo systems, of actual adults, to say Nintendo is just for kids is ridiculous.
Razzle commented on Mario And Zelda On Mobile Could Bring New Play...:
@unrandomsam If you say so, I don't follow the stats but I just checked the Top 150 games on the App Store and there is nothing over $7.99. Most are $0.99. Are you talking about games or other apps? I stand by what I said, a $50 game in iOS is not going to go well.
Razzle commented on Team Kakumei Joins The Wii U Developer Family:
Good luck Jonathan to you and your team, sounds like a great start to your careers. I hope you are successful!
Yeah I can see it now. Nintendo will release Phantom Hourglass on iOS for what.... $50? Your average iOS user laughs and goes back to their free 5 minutes of Candy Crush or Clash of Clans. There is no brand loyalty with iPhone games, only a bit of recognition and a cheapening of the Nintendo brand. Damage to your brand is the worst kind of damage, they should remain a specialists gaming company as always. There is plenty of room in the market.
Razzle commented on Shadow Of The Eternals Isn't Dead, But Don't E...:
Most truly promising games seem to go alright with Kickstarter. This one failed big time, probably for the right reasons.
Razzle commented on Video: YouTube Challenge Winner's Video Blasts...:
If their goal was to make me laugh, mission accomplished!
Razzle commented on Nintendo Picks Up Multiple Nominations in D.I....:
Thanks for your thoughts. I know many people will agree with you, especially those who prefer a tougher challenge. I only died once playing through A Link Between a Worlds, I died maybe 15 times in LttP!
A Link Between Worlds was amazing and well deserved its nomination. It is a great example of gameplay which hits the casual market as well as the more enthusiastic gamer. I was hooked on it start to finish and so were others in my household who wouldn't usually get pulled into an 'adventure' game. Play a Link to the Past and you will realise just how much tighter and focused A Link Between Worlds is, it's much better IMO.
Razzle commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:
There is so much PASSION in these forums! Can you feel it? There is no gaming love like Nintendo gaming love. To me Nintendo is a refined taste, like a good wine, which only gamers with real taste ever truly appreciate. I just popped a 1991 vintage called A Link to the Past yesterday, it has matured very nicely.
Razzle commented on New Road Redemption Footage Blasts Away Road R...:
August is a while a way, so I give them benefit of the doubt. Not much variety in the video.
