SKTTR commented on Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power Announced for ...:

Trine 2 - Director's Cut is the number 1 indie megaseller on Wii U in almost all regions, and the reasons are probably really nice detailed HD graphics and a beautiful presentation and introduction that seems to lead into an immersive world, unique gameplay, co-op 3-player local and online, voicechat, all original content + all DLC content in one package, and everything expected like off-tv-play and no bugs. It helped that it was a launch game and has a good demo too, so I wonder what happened to Trine - Enchanted Edition for Wii U.

However, Trine 3 looks like a different beast. Much more exciting.

My main issue (a minor one) with Trine 2 was that stages were too long, lasting around 20mins each. And a deep forest wasn't just one relatively long stage. It was a series of several relatively long forest stages. I personally prefer shorter stages (then it's easier to take breaks when playing with friends and more comfortable when you missed items/collectibles). That, or a map.



SKTTR commented on Review: Pac-Attack (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

Good you pointed that out. If you want Pac-Attack with 2-player mode on Wii U you need this SNES version because unfortunately all GBA games on Virtual Console don't have their original multiplayer link feature.

But if you don't care about multiplayer, just get the GBA Pac-Man Collection where you get this and three other games for less money.



SKTTR commented on Scram Kitty Developer Praises the Wii U and Me...:

Scram Kitty is pure action skillz, for gamers not for players.
I wasn't into the silly cat theme, but the spot on controls+physics and the fresh challenging fast on-rails action were totally doing it for me.

Can see the similarities between this and a Treasure action gem. They really nailed that uncompromised 16bit arcade shooter feeling.

Obviously Dakko Dakko's next game has a reserved space on my Wii U menu.



SKTTR commented on Former Rare Developers Will Show Off Their New...:

A spiritual BK successor would be a great start for them to show off and I certainly have my ekambokam ready for a fun modern retro-inspired 3D platforming collectathon. But secretly, I can't wait for their spiritual Jet Force Gemini and Blast Corps successors. ;)



SKTTR commented on Clive 'N' Wrench Aims to Bring Back Those Rare...:

i can live with N64 graphics as long as the game is good.

More of this potentially good "at-least-we-try" kind,
and less of the flappy "coded-on-a-weekend" kind.

Just hope it doesn't rip off Banjo-Kazooie beyond having a main character duo and being a 3D platformer. If this has absolutely no original ideas that's way worse than unappealing main characters or blocky graphics.



SKTTR commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

I vote Donkey Kong 64 because Nintendo probably has to change it anyway to rerelease it. They probably need to edit out some stuff like the Jet-Pac arcade game, and the Expansion Pak issue, which are two of the reasons a Virtual Console release is impossible.

If Diddy Kong Racing isn't counted because of a DS version, then Super Mario 64 should not be counted as well, as there's Super Mario 64 DS.

I'd like to see sequels of SM64, Pokémon Snap, F-Zero, 1080, and S&P, but on Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains Several Design Choices in...:

Link transforming into a wolf in front of a crowd and the crowd not realising it is Link. I explain that one with Midna's shadow magic. The crowd/normal people don't see Link transforming, they just see the wolf suddenly appearing out of nowhere, as if the seconds before never happened.



SKTTR commented on Indie Title Bizerta: Silent Evil is Stalking i...:

Flashlight horror adventure from Germany on Wii U eShop? Wollen wir!

Could be a great addition to the library of indie horror on Wii U, next to Master Reboot, Lone Survivor - The Director's Cut, and How To Survive.



SKTTR commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

@RaphaBoss Wasn't complaining. Just referencing posts above and joking because some people think 20 bucks is too much for a pretty good, relatively new game that's 40-50 bucks anywhere else. I guess Nintendo should have added HD to its title and sell it for 59,99 and everyone would be happy.



SKTTR commented on Video: Check Out Kirby's Adventure Wii on the ...:

Fire Iwata and let him take his games Kirby, Smash, and EarthBound with him! That's what real fans want!

But really, can they please stop Wii and focus on bringing more new games? Like Rainbow Curse in Europe!
Drop the Wii support already. Everyone has a Wii, the games are all available. We could have already bought them all. In fact most of us have those games already and can play them on Wii and Wii U! No need to waste time making extra download versions. So please stop it. I'm very disappointed I paid 50 bucks for Kirby's Adventure Wii and 50 bucks for Super Mario Galaxy 2 just 3 years ago, and you can get them for 20 or 10 now on Wii U???
Same for Metroid Trilogy. Paid 150 bucks for the games, and now fans can have it for only 10?? Sucks!!

SKTTR commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

The first Kirby Paintbrush game on DS was difficult and kinda frustrating at times. It still got very high scores (9/10's everywhere) for being fresh and innovative and a good challenge.

This however, being a tad easier, and having a 5-player mode, and looking miles better, is certainly more fun.



SKTTR commented on The Nintendo Game Plan - How the NES Slowly Wo...:

Nintendo could remember and learn from their NES launch.

This NES poster has a colorful mix of games for everyone.
Mario games, all the most popular Sports genres, Zapper Shooters, Puzzlers, Racing, Pinball, Adventures, Gimmicky Robot hardware games. If they could only launch with such a diverse quality line up nowadays.

This kind of advertising still works today.
Wii U had a slow start but now it has all the different important genres covered. Make a modern poster showing off the diversity Wii U has now! Include the best of 3rd parties and eShop too and a reminder that all the 1000+ Wii, WiiWare, and VC games work on Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Reaction: Pokémon Shuffle Isn't Quite Microtr...:

Those investors are evil. Nintendo should buy themselves out of them.
If I was a Pokémon fan I'd bury my Pikachu today.

Very frightening to see this becoming a thing in future Animal Crossing, Smash, Zelda or Mario Kart games.



SKTTR commented on Review: Rock 'N Racing Off Road (Wii U eShop):

In 5 player mode this is decent fun, as the physics are pretty good, and no cheating and buggy CPU players interfere.
But single player modes are underwhelming and don't even come close to the content and charm of the 20 year old classic and ultimate reference Ironman's Super Off-Road.



SKTTR commented on Humphrey, of SPIKEY WALLS Fame, to be a Guest ...:

Looks like some simple fun arcadey one-screen multiplayer jump&run.
Is it co-op like Bubble Bobble or versus like Mario Bros.?

Don't mind the cameo. But it sure is unexpected.
Here's a list of indie cameo characters people like:
CommanderVideo (from BIT.TRIP RUNNER)
Shovel Knight
The Clone (from Stealth Inc. 2: A Game of Clones)
Toki Tori
Juan Aguacate (from Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition)
Scram Kitty and/or his Buddy on Rails
Ray (from Stick It To The Man!)
Sugar Plumps (from Little Inferno)
Mi (from Knytt Underground)
Lemeza Kosugi (from La-Mulana)
The Player (from Retro City Rampage)
Quote (from Cave Story)
Patricia Wagon (from Mighty Switch Force!)
The Boy (from Teslagrad)
Shantae (from Shantae and the Pirate's Curse)
The Poet (from Tengami)
The Swapper
Rusty (from SteamWorld Dig)
The Vice President (from Citizens of Earth)
Daniel (from UnEpic)

Edit: Huh weird format glitch.



SKTTR commented on Review: Puzzle Monkeys (Wii U eShop):

Really put off by its cheap visuals. Fortunately the price point prevents harsher crticism.

Yes, gameplay is most important, but... It's like a lady.
If you don't like how she looks you don't want to... go to dinner with her.....
except when you're starving.



SKTTR commented on Yusuke Hashimoto Outlines His Desire to Contin...:

I'm in the final chapters of the first Bayonetta (20+ hours in, playing on Normal difficulty). And when it's done I'm going straight into Bayo 2.

I love this game, the combat is nice and the graphics are sweet, but I'm playing for the story. Yes, I like the story and for me it's the strongest point of the game.

However, halo farming (to buy all the things) is kinda annoying and time consuming, but maybe I'm missing something. Help?



SKTTR commented on Review: Tri-Strip (Wii U eShop):

It's a 1.99 game and the core gameplay seems good.
I don't mind the art style. I rather like it.
And I love a good puzzle game.

But no highscore saving really hurts games like this one.
The developer should consider adding that feature in an update.
Then I'd like to get this (if it ever gets released in EU.)



SKTTR commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

The emphasis is on "seamless",
seamless transitions between areas (like the overworld of Wind Waker).

My favourite part is you stay immersed: There won't be hardware limitations/distractions like loading screens that pull you out of the game world.



SKTTR commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Gives an Update on Devil’s ...:

I'm not totally sold, but "content for 2 games" is always a good deal.
And that it's an underrepresented genre on our Wii U made by a prominent quality developer.

I can see myself picking this up, the character designs are badass. I only need confirmation that the gameplay is badass too.



SKTTR commented on 3DS Flashcard Users Playing ROMs Online Report...:

You stinky filthx pirates. Those developers got a job to do and a life to feed, just like the hundred thousand breeding and cutting swine for you.

Get faced with it & Pay for it!

Edit: No, I'm not that bad. In reality I think everything should be free for everyone. And everything created should be accessible for the ones interested, just because it was created. but as long as we live in this prehisoric monetary system we have to pay if we want to support. And anything we pay for is a support for them blooming in the industry.



SKTTR commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

As long as people understand a 5/10 as just an average game coming from a subjective opinion (we're all just humans) and not dismiss it as total shovelware a 10-point system is easy to understand. You can have fun with an average game! Some people seem to forget the scale goes down to 3/20, 2/10 and 1/10 for really boring, short games, or cashgrabs, or trash.

In the first place reviews are written to inform people if their choice is good for them, not to rank games against each other.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Pitched For The Media Rights To Harry...:

The only experience I had with Harry Potter games was Order of the Phoenix on Wii a friend gave me. Even though it is a licensed game tied closely to the film, it is very vivid, with an openworld Hogwarts in full architecture, and all the characters, and many different quests. It amazed me that it had no loading screens, great audiovisuals, and a fantastic atmosphere. Apart from some minor control, camera, and framerate issues it was a very pleasant experience. Couldn't stop playing until 100% completion, never expected that.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Wii) 8/10

The GBC & GBA games sound interesting, might look into them if I find them.



SKTTR commented on Curve Digital Confirms OlliOlli Release Window...:

Curve Digital with OlliOlli
Two Tribes with RIVE
Broken Rules with BLEK
Shin'en with FAST
Image&Form with SteamWorld Heist
Nifflas with Affordable Space Adventures

The eShop is gonna be great (in Europe at least).
Look at the releases just for this year. Good/Great games like Underground, Chariot, Citizens of Earth, Shantae, Alphadia Genesis. Even Rock 'N Racing Off Road is decent and full of potential. Frenchy Bird is the only bad eShop game this year, so far.



SKTTR commented on Sega's Wonder Boy Lives On In Monster Boy, And...:

I got all the six Wonder Boy games on Wii Virtual Console.

Real classics, to me the best platformer/adventure series on Master System and Mega Drive/Genesis, and therefore I always seen Wonder Boy as a better SEGA mascot than Sonic or Alex Kidd.

The soundtrack in the Wonder Boy/Monster World games is always fantastic too, so having someone as knowledgable as the Symphony of the Night composer is great for a spiritual successor that needs to convince fans in every department.

No question about it, I'll get this if it hits the Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Feature: The Making of Wetrix and Its Route to...:

Wetrix was amazing. One of the all-time puzzle classics.
Well-designed, polished, the N64 version even had online leaderboards, sorta.
Why no revival? Bring a HD version to Wii U!!

What happened to Vampire Circus?



SKTTR commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

I have all of them except ExciteBots because it wasn't released in any PAL region. That one's at the top of my list.

With 180 Wii retail games in my collection and playable on my Wii U I can skip almost any game. Unbelievable crazy prices though: 9,99€ for Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid Prime Trilogy, etc. Good for those who missed out for so long.

What's left for me is ExciteBots and a few japan imports, translated if possible, even though I'm learning Japanese at the moment: Captain Rainbow, Chibi Robo!, Zangeki no REGINLEIV, Project Zero 4.



SKTTR commented on Cube Life: Island Survival is Another Minecraf...:

@Patchouli: Cypronia brought us Color Zen by Large Animal which is original. And a pretty good puzzler.

I didn't found Angry Bunnies, Cake Ninja, and My Style Studio appealing, but this one looks quite good. Better than the other Minecraft-like games I've seen in development for Wii U.



SKTTR commented on New Screenshots for Rock 'N Racing Off Road Sp...:

Here's hope that this is Wii U (eShops)'s Super Sprint / Super Off-Road, just like Konami's very recommendable Driift Mania is on Wii(Ware).

As I enjoy almost all kinds of racing games from Excite Truck to Stunt Race FX, from Art Style light trax to MotoHeroz, from F-Zero X to Wave Race Blue Storm to 1080º Avalanche to Micro Machines to RUSH RUSH RALLY RACING to Mario Kart 8 and many more - but not from Forza to Gran Tourismo - I hope this meets my expectations in being a decent and fun racing title that is as playable as the old 8-16bit classics and has the content and replayability of a modern one like Driift Mania.

I really hope EnjoyUp makes this a competent package like they did with UnEpic and Spy Chameleon, and not a 2,49 minigame like 99Moves, Darts Up, or Abyss that don't live up to their full potential.



SKTTR commented on Review: Chariot (Wii U eShop):

Scram Kitty, Toki Tori 2+, Knytt Underground, Master Reboot, Zen Pinball 2.
They all got a 7/10 on NintendoLife.
And they're among my top favourite games on the eShop.

Maybe Chariot is another one in that roll.
I haven't got it yet, but the 7/10 makes me excited.
A 7/10 is NL's secret rating for underdog gems. ;)



SKTTR commented on Interview: Grendel Games Discusses Underground...:

1. So how much is the special controller? Any pics of it?
2. Does the GamePad emulate the original controls (with special controller) well or is it a different, classic configuration?
3. No Wiimote+Nunchuk support?
4. How many stages are in the game? Approx. game length?
5. Why is it 19.99€? For 19.99€ I expect a premium indie with fantastic audiovisuals and good content. I mean, the most expensive indie before Underground was Trine 2 Director's Cut (16,99€). All other Wii U indies never charged more than 14,99€ (not counting a few games with paid DLC).
This game needs more coverage, a video/trailer on the eShop at least, if not a demo. Hope there's some gameplay footage on YT.

I remember Grendel's first game on WiiWare, Diatomic. Looked interesting, had unique controls as well, but wasn't available in Europe unfortunately.



SKTTR commented on Curve Studios Talks About The Future Of The Hy...:

Bought a lot of WiiWare and Hydroventure is among the best games on that service.
In fact, during WiiWare's lifespan just five games (out of the 200 I played) got a perfect 10/10 score from me.
Hydroventure was one of them. (The other four were World of Goo, My Life as a King, MotoHeroz, and La-Mulana.)

Of course I'd love a sequel on a powerful HD home console.
Curve is a quality game studio, creating awesome exclusive games and porting/publishing interesting unique experiences.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January (Europe):

Tetrobot only. I have all the others except Wooden Sen'Sey (not interested, still too expensive) and Tested with robots ! (not available in Germany).

Also, Wii U eshop EU releases next week (15.01.2015):

  • The Amazing Spider-Man : Ultimate Edition
    (Activision) 49,99€
  • Angry Birds Star Wars
    (Activision) 59,99€
  • Family Tennis SP
    (Shin'en Multimedia, ARC SYSTEM WORKS) 4,99€


SKTTR commented on Year in Development: Nyamyam:

Very ambitious, costly, and challenging project doesn't translate into tophit bestseller because of game length.
I think it was worth playing it for the atmosphere, the overall experience, and the unique graphic style that created interesting puzzles and was nice to look at.
If you're ok with that and want the bonus of 1080p graphics on a HD tv, plus off-tv play, plus Miiverse stamps, then the Wii U version is obviously a better choice.

I figured 4 ex-Rare-staffers worked on this and everyone deserved at least 2 bucks for bringing it to Wii U! So I payed the asking price of 8 bucks day one, knowing it would be a short game, but also knowing it's containing part of the spirit of a Rare gem. The graphics and sound certainly shine through.

Our support adds to the chances that their next game is coming to Wii U. And we don't wanna lose such talent. Again.

@Nyamyam: You made your first game a crazy load of work that not everyone is able to acknowledge. I guess big publishers would run away scared finding out about your concept. That's ok. You're an indie. But before running out of funds I hope you find an idea for a game that is easier to create, developed in less time and bigger in content. With all the time and energy you put into such a complex graphic style, I'm sure you're able to create bigger games in less time when using more traditional graphic tools.



SKTTR commented on Feature: A Year in Development - RCMADIAX:

Bundling the three dice games (Poker Dice Solitaire Future, Shut the Box, Toss N Go) together in a single title is a good idea. Not just from a business/rating cost standpoint. It makes an overall better product! Maybe put in Spikey Walls as an unlockable extra and there we have a nice lowbudget collection I'd give a try. (Blok Drop U/X can stand on its own, and hopefully Super Robo Mouse too).
