Razzle commented on EarthBound Director Shigesato Itoi Pays Tribut...:

"You always put yourself last, after you'd finished helping everyone else. You were so generous as a friend that this trip might be your very first selfish act."

Iwata must have been a wonderful friend. What a profound loss



Razzle commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

There is an outpouring of sadness across the Internet. Iwata was clearly loved by everyone, and rightly so - he was never above having some fun with his fans, even if it meant laughing at himself. For me he has been the face of Nintendo for the last 10 years, he has left a gaping hole in the heart of the gaming community.



Razzle commented on Nintendo Confirms Splatoon Tower Mode Release ...:

Splatoon has been the biggest breath of fresh air in my gaming life. I was getting so sick of online shooters and the same old thing - did anyone else see Call of Duty at E3 and just sigh.. It looked so dull and boring. Splatoon is just as frantic, especially ranked battles, but with more colour and POP and fun. I can see myself playing for a long time.



Razzle commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

Hey we may as well admit, if Nintendo were releasing these games they'd be $5 - $20 a pop, and staggered out over 4 years! Microsoft are passing up A LOT of potential income by releasing these for $30, so it's a fantastic deal for gamers. Enough to convince me to buy an Xbox One? Not yet, however I would definitely get one over a PS4. Microsoft are bringing the games way more than Sony IMO.



Razzle commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

ZombiU was an excellent game and it deserves more recognition. It's done all it could for the WiiU and it made really unique use of the gamepad. Haters are gonna hate but you cannot fault the effort Ubisoft made to create a truly unqiue WiiU title. I hope with a release on other systems it gets some more credit (though I believe it will struggle to generate the same fear and stress without the gamepad). This game left me properly scared and I cannot say that for many games.



Razzle commented on Monochroma For Wii U Scrapped Due To Technical...:

I supported a game called Chosmochoria, and although the game is finished the developer had to give up on the WiiU version due to technical issues. It is a big gamble with kickstarted these days, I have supported 4 games and am yet to recieve a single one on WiiU. Still waiting on Paradise Lost which is getting pushed further and further back, wouldn't be suprised if it gets cancelled as well.



Razzle commented on Indie Developers Praise Nintendo's Policies an...:

I love the Indi games. Recent purchases include Teslagrad, The Swapper and Guacamelee. All polished and excellent platformers, all different in their own unique way. They have breathed much needed life into the WiiU and that is to be applauded.



Razzle commented on The Hyrule Warriors Majora's Mask Pack DLC is ...:

We have been playing this a fair bit but holy moly, the highest character we have levelled up is Link and he's on level 52. Most of my characters are level 35ish. This makes it really difficult, we are still attempting to get the Skuktullas. I will say though, you cannot complain about the amount of content, this game is enormous!!



Razzle commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

Regarding the eShop male/female statistic. My wife is a regular gamer, but mostly enjoys just playing co-op, and we usually just log in under my account to play. So whenever there is a female playing on my WiiU the system will likely just register it as me.

However, I do know she has never browsed the eShop and shows very little interest in Indi games. She only really like the usual Nintendo staples, and she loves the 3DS (again, the account is in my name). I would suggest many women are playing Nintendo products under a male account system in a shared household.

A tiny and completely unrepresentative sample I know, but that's my 2 cents.



Razzle commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Curve Digital:

From Curve so far I've bought only Lone Survivor, I was very impressed and intend to pick up Stealth Inc, The Swapper and Thomas Was Alone. The Indi releases have been a saving grace on the WiiU.



Razzle commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok 2:

I liked this game up until the later stages. They became mazes of frustration and it felt like they gave up on designing open levels and just made corridors instead. The earlier levels though.... Awesome. Loved getting head shots with the bow and seeing the enemies tumble while running.



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 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!
