SKTTR commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

1. Super Mario Maker
2. Wind Waker HD
3. Smash 4 U
4., 5. & 6. Placeholder for Zelda U, Starfox, and Xenoblade

Honorable mentions:

7. Yoshi's Woolly World is way waaay better than expected. I'm even saying it's the best Yoshi game ever.
8. After the disappointing Mario Kart Wii, I was glad Mario Kart 8 got the series back into form
9. & 10. Hyrule Warriors and Splatoon were absolutely worth the money with all their content and replay value.
11. & 12. Super Mario 3D World is great fun for being the first 3D platformer for up to 4 players simultaneously and New Super Mario Bros. U was unique with its innovative 5-player mode.

Small disappointments:

Pikmin 3 was too short and complicated compared to Pikmin 2 and I don't like the DLC. That being said, I couldn't get enough of its story mode and can't wait for Pikmin 4.

I couldn't get into DKC:TF and TW101. They just didn't hook me. Sad because I loved the DKC trilogy on SNES and even 100%ed Returns on Wii.
The Wonderful 101 had annoying characters... I think it's because their voice actors were bull.

PS. I still have to download Captain Toad, Bayonetta 2, Lego City, Scribblenauts, and Deus Ex if they ever go on sale.

And I skipped Monster Hunter because I have it on Wii and couldn't stomach starting over from scratch.... this game needed a Wii-to-WiiU file transfer.



SKTTR commented on SNES Title Super Star Wars Coming to PS4 and Vita:

Super Star Wars cooler retro release than this weeks The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks, or Animal Crossing: Wild World? You're such a joker. Especially since we we got Super Star Wars and the whole SNES trilogy years ago on Wii VC, and even more years ago on SNES.



SKTTR commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Endures Awful UK Launch ...:

I love Chibi Robo but this doesn't feel like a Chibi Robo game. The Gamecube (and Wii) original was the best, followed by the sequel (Park Patrol on DS). These were original and fun RPG adventures. Some of the best games of their time (and even today). I feel like Zip Lash is just a way too early (and unnecessary) spin off, just like AC amiibo festival. Kind of alienating their fan base by putting lovable characters into unrelated genres. As good as these games may be, they're not what fans wanted.



SKTTR commented on Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch (Wii U eShop):

I just beat this game (on Wii U). It's very fun and innovative, but only 5 hours. Fortunately many hidden collectibles and unlockable achievements, time trials, bonus chapters, and co-op control bring lots of replay value. The developers could do an update to fix the area with the framerate drop and the muted voices on tv though - but it's still a great game. 8/10.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

10 new games in one week. (3 retail downloads, 2 eShop downloads, and 5 Virtual Console titles). I think that's a new record. I think I'm getting Electronic Super Joy, and I hope the sequel which is out in US will make its way over here soon too.



SKTTR commented on Review: Human Resource Machine (Wii U eShop):

I got Octodad, Slender, Freedom Planet, and Swords&Soldiers II this week. I hoped Human Resource Machine would arrive in EU on 29th Oct as well, but I'm ok with what we've got. Will get this next time, probably in combination with The Binding of Isaac Rebirth.



SKTTR commented on International Age Rating Coalition System, IAR...:

The times of having a German, an Austrian, and a UK Nintendo Network ID just to have full access over the European eShop catalogue are over soon!

Soon we can finally have 1001 Spikes, Master Reboot, Ittle Dew and other unreleased gems on the German and Australian eShop with just one account.

Certainly another fair step into a better next gen.



SKTTR commented on Video: This Laparoscopic Wii U Controller is T...:

I completed Underground 100% with Wii U GamePad controls. It was quite good if you're out for something different. It's a little rough around the edges though. I'd replay it if I had access to that other controller.



SKTTR commented on Pikmin 4 is "Very Close to Completion", Though...:

I never was a fan of the mission mode and DLC in Pikmin 3, and I kinda want them to dump it for a bigger adventure/story mode in Pikmin 4.
Also, the time limit, which is rather generous in Pikmin 3, is unsettling for many. I prefer Pikmin 2's more relaxed approach where time is just a highscore factor.
And finally, I never made much use of the multitasking in Pikmin 3. I only switched characters when it was needed for 100%. I just like finishing things one by one. Controlling more than 2 characters at once was a bit too much for me. Didn't help that the mission mode was based entirely on multitasking all 3 characters.

With my hopes and fears out of the way I hope Pikmin 4 is to Pikmin 3, what Pikmin 2 is to Pikmin 1 - and it has to land on Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Video: PolyKid’s Wii U Adventure Platformer ...:

I think the game looks fun and the graphics look great for a 2-man project, and yes I see that they're not finished with it, but it's promising if they polish it up. Unique art style, 2p co-op, and not just platforming but also exploring with tools like bug nets and shovels. If I only had the money to support this. Looks like more than just a regular 3D platformer.



SKTTR commented on These Disturbing Year Walk Bedtime Stories for...:

any chance they added the ebook stories to the in-game? looks like that's the case having seen a few scenes from the trailer. can't wait to read them on my Wii U in the dark and find out what this visual novel puzzle horror adventure mix is all about.



SKTTR commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

Shovel Knight is a finished product on the eShop. You paid money for it and got the full game.
Now they make extra content, most of it for free, and some of it behind an amiibo. If you want the exclusive amiibo features (that cost money to develop and weren't part of kickstarter) then in exchange you have to pay for the amiibo, what's the problem?
I mean, there is no Shovel Knight advertising that ever said "with this purchase you paid for co-op mode and other things we may work on in the future".



SKTTR commented on Teyon's First Wii U Game Combines Real Time St...:

I think Teyon is relatively succesful with their WiiWare railshooter series Heavy Fire. It's still in the Top 20 in some regions.

But this is the first Teyon game that I'm interested in. Looks better than all their previous efforts.



SKTTR commented on Video: Metroid in Unreal Engine 4 is Shiny and...:

The graphics and framerate would be different if there were some actual enemies, desctructible/moving objects, items, different weapons exchangable on a whim, a control/option interface.

Much cpu power can go into beautiful graphics when you take away essential and complex gameplay elements.



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

Considering this if it gets a EU (German) release.

Long ago I had a black&white game called Hacker where you had to navigate a remote robot and hack cameras. It had a great atmosphere even with just 8-bit and 2 colors. Factotum seems to be somewhat similar.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo and DeNA Smart Device Game Still On T...:

Nintendo games that would do well on a smartphone is almost anything without buttons: Zelda Phantom Hourglass, Zelda Spirit Tracks, Nintendogs+cats, Style Boutique, Hotel Dusk/Last Window, Big Brain Academy, Electroplankton, Dr. Kawashima, Phoenix Wright, Prof. Layton, Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, Puzzle League, Picross, WarioWare, Animal Crossing.



SKTTR commented on Video: This New Soul Axiom Trailer Sets the Scene:

@shani: It's a mystery thriller puzzle adventure, a heavily underrepresented genre on a Nintendo. You aren't supposed to know what's going on. That's why you play the game. To find out.

It's comparable to classics like Myst and Shadowgate, where you're stranded in a strange place somewhere, not knowing where you come from, where you are, who you are, with focus on atmospheric environments.
Simply a game for curious oldschool adventurers pepped up with modern standards.



SKTTR commented on Video: This New Soul Axiom Trailer Sets the Scene:

What faint, FlashmanHarry and Raptor78 say

It's a first person mystery adventure (just like Master Reboot). It's about solving puzzles, exploring new worlds, an immersive story and atmosphere, a unique artsy style... and it's not about realistic graphics and fastpaced action.

In games like this I can forgive a jumpy framerate as you can go slow with it anyway. And they're working on that issue for sure, it was just a demo of a beta. Let's not forget it's a small indie studio that made this game, and not a 200 man team with the help of a veteran publisher with 30 years of experience. Those 3D graphics are a great effort for such a small studio, and since it's much harder work than any 2D game, cut them devs some slack, especially if you haven't played Master Reboot and don't know what you're talking about.

I think it's great that a few indie devs put effort and resources into 3D worlds as we have plenty of 2D games already and lack some real 3D games at the moment.

Give this dev a chance, they don't even have money for the USK rating to release their games in Germany, and still they're producing costly games and sell them cheap and put them on sale regularly.



SKTTR commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

@nintenkid: Nintendo is making Wii U games, and pretty fantastic ones at that, not just in glorious HD but also with orchestral/liveband soundtracks now!
Have you heard about Kirby and the Rainbow-Paintbrush (May), Splatoon (June), Yoshi's Woolly World (July), Devil's Third (August), Super Mario Maker (September), Project Zero: Maiden of The Black Shrine (October), Starfox Zero (November), Xenoblade Chronicles X (December), The Legend of Zelda U (2016), Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei (2016), etc. etc.



SKTTR commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

It's sad that Wii U will have just a normal life span being Nintendo's best hardware yet. There are enough great games out and many more even better games coming, and honestly they look great, even next to most XBOne and PS4 games. Even PC veterans are amazed the first time they see Mario Kart 8 or DKC: Tropical Freeze running. Of course NX was announced at a time when rumours where spreading about Nintendo going out of the home console business. It's all a bit crazy considering the huge jump in hardware power from Wii to Wii U.



SKTTR commented on Nintendo NX Could Get A Port Of MMORPG Final F...:

There were great FF games on Wii.... and most of them were exclusive
1. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers
2. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time
3. Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon
4. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
5. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a Darklord
6. Final Fantasy IV: The After Years
7. Crystal Defenders R1
8. Crystal Defenders R2
9. VC Games: Final Fantasy (NES), Final Fantasy II/IV (SNES), Final Fantasy III/VI (SNES)
10. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles (Gamecube)

Also, Square Enix made Dragon Quest X for Wii U in Japan and Deus Ex Human Revolution Director's Cut for Wii U in the West.



SKTTR commented on Video: Three Reasons Why You Should Be Pumped ...:

The only problem I had with the original Shovel Knight was that I wanted the world map to be bigger. It was a jam packed, colorful, fun and flawless world, but I thought a game with this quality and soundtrack deserved to be epic.

Shovel Knight is such a polished and welldesigned gem, an the slight lack of content won't be an issue anymore with the free huge update / completely new game coming soon.

If they ever do a Shovel Knight 2 I like the idea of having it in 16bit style.



SKTTR commented on Oddworld Inhabitants Is No Longer Working On W...:

I'm getting New 'n' Tasty when it's out. It's a brilliant looking HD remake of a real classic many of us never played, and I think many Wii U fans will be swayed over to get it if it launches for a good price / discount.

And please kids, stop your doomy gloomy attitude. Wii U development stops when the final games are out, and there are still hundreds of Wii U games on the release lists for 2015 and 2016.



SKTTR commented on Review: The Quiet Collection (Wii U eShop):

@dumdedum Yes, I loved that Fate of Atlantis was an extra game in Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings for Wii. The Wii could have more point&click adventures, but I enjoyed Tales of Monkey Island Chapters 1-5, StrongBad 1-5, Sam&Max Season 1&2, and even the uncoventional ones like Another Code R, the Phoenix Wright trilogy, and Zack&Wiki.

For Wii U, I enjoyed The Cave and Stick It to The Man immensely. Great adventures for small prices!



SKTTR commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Outlines His Goals With Devil...:

Since this is an online game published by Nintendo, it's safe to say that just like all the other Nintendo online games there will be plenty of updates ironing out all the issues. I think the game is going to be pretty good, and is obviously different from other games in the genre, and I'm confident that this will get better over time.



SKTTR commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

Miiverse has many young kids posting. For many kids it's their first baby steps in an internet community. We older gamers just need to acknowledge that they are here to stay and don't be too harsh on them or Nintendo's service for that matter. They too are part of the success for Nintendo. They're not a big problem though. Most of the spam is easily blocked out by the filters you can apply. And once you get to follow some hardcore gamers, artists, and developers it gets fairly enjoyable. I think the update will make Miiverse more interesting.



SKTTR commented on Elliot Quest For Wii U To Get Free Content Update:

This time you can count me in. I was always interested in Elliot Quest, because I love games like Zelda II, Metroid, Kid Icarus, Wonder Boy, Shovel Knight, but some reported bugs held me back. Can't resist now that it's fixed, updated with more content, and on sale. Will try it with the new Miiverse update too.



SKTTR commented on Aperion Cyberstorm's Multiplayer Versus Modes ...:

I worried it has only GamePad and Wii U Pro Controller support but it has any type of controller support so 5 player matches won't be a problem, though I don't understand how twinstick works with Wiimote-only.
Storymode sonds intriguing as well.



SKTTR commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

They have the final build of the game for reviewing, but they can't play the online mode until release.
All these previews and good/bad videos are about 10% of the game. We still haven't seen the main mode of the game, the 90% that is online multiplayer.



SKTTR commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

Well, the graphics look to be on Hyrule Warriors level or higher.
And the gameplay preview..... what gameplay preview? A tester that played the singleplayer campaign? It's like reviewing Splatoon by only knowing its offline mode.
Last time I checked it was online multiplayer that was Devil's Third big draw and selling point. And as of now, no one has played the online. So much empty talk here.
