What the videogame industry needs now in the music compartment is to get rid of some cliches and start employing musicians who have experience in live music rather than a piece of paper at Berkeley. We certainly don't need more "My Heart Will Go On" and other kind of muzak to appeal to the masses.

The idea of having big "mainstream theme tunes" in videogames is totally a money-driven concept. There is absolutely no respect for the art in his words. What he means is "let's put cheap pop tunes in videogames, so we can sell the music as an individual product".

I usually don't watch Youtube gamers, but a great guy I knew named Andy showed me Lydia's video years ago when she started her channel. I hope she becomes a regular contributor here because she's very competent!!

spizzamarozzi commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

So all these extra months of developement and the only exclusive feature WiiU gets is the interactive map - the bare minimum?! I thought the hacking concept would have gone hand in hand with the GamePad, but apparently UBI couldn't be bothered. Oh well, at least now they have enough clues to understand why they don't sell on Nintendo machines.

This is an insult to all the good eShop stuff priced 1.99 - Edge, Rush, Toki Tori et al.
And where's the humour anyway? Humour is when you blatantly take something from somewhere else and twist it until it's your own. This is just a rip off of another doggeyoopsiepoopiepoodley game.
Hope this stays in America.

spizzamarozzi commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

I think it was a mistake from UBI to publish an Assassin's Creed as random as the third one for an audience that has probably never experienced the first two. I think it would have been a lot wiser to publish the first three AC in a bundle instead of just the third and the fourth, so people could play the serie from the start and they didn't feel like they were missing anything.

Watch_Dogs is going to suffer aswell because it's been out for a while and most of WiiU owners now know it's not that great.

So it seems UBI is testing us by throwing incredibly unfair challenges like "Buy a game you already know is not as good as you thought!" or "Get hyped for a serie starting from the middle chapter!".

spizzamarozzi commented on Shovel Knight Sales Numbers Revealed by Yacht ...:

I like how this company keeps fans updated - well deserved achievement. And, if I'm not mistaken, Steam releases worldwide, while the WiiU and 3DS versions of Shovel Knight have been out only in the US - this means that if the game was launched in Europe at the same time, the WiiU and 3DS numbers would have destroyed the PC numbers, and a game selling more on WiiU than on Steam is practically unheard of at this point in time.

spizzamarozzi commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

Ages ago I predicted a drop in sales for general portable gaming this generation and I believe we're heading towards that. It's going to be impossible, for 3DS, to repeat the great sales of DS, which was helped a lot by piracy and by a lineup of softwares that went beyond the gaming world (literature books, cookbooks, music making tools, language learning softwares etc etc). Forty-four million units is a very good results anyway (I think most of the people with a strong interest in videogames got a 3DS by now...), but I don't see this number growing by 12 millions by the end of the year unless they don't start bringing the non-gamers in.

Is Capcom going to release a text-based game in Europe again without a French, Italian, German, Spanish translation?! My english is decent enough to understand and enjoy the game, but if Capcom wants to get away with not translating their full priced text based games again, then we (the audience) are doing something wrong.

spizzamarozzi commented on 3DS eShop Exclusive Nintendo Pocket Football C...:

I thought it made more sense to discunt it when football fever will strike for Champion League final and the World Cup. However, it was a day-1 purchase for me all along, so I'm happy I can get it with a discount (full price seems a bit too dear in my opinion).

spizzamarozzi commented on Shovel Knight Release Pushed Back "A Few Weeks":

I don't mind waiting more to get a better product, but delays and vague release dates are becoming the standard in the indie game industry. Not good. Also, I hope this game is still a WiiU/3DS/PC exclusive - that "all platforms" scares me.

spizzamarozzi commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (Europe):

That's the fourth week in a row without a proper WiiU indie release - that's rather sad. I wonder what has happened to all the games scheduled to be released Q1 (1.001 Spikes, Citizen of Earth, Pier Solar HD etc) now that the quarter is nearly gone. Anyway, gonna get Dr. Luigi, more for the discount than for actual interest in the game.

spizzamarozzi commented on EA: Nintendo Needs to Drop Wii Price, Help Thi...:

Are we sure Wii is strictly a family system? I wouldn't bet my money on it. Of course it's undeniable that a good portion of its users are families and occasional players, but what happened to that giant bunch of people who grew up with Nintendo in the 80s and 90s? There's thousands and thousands of seasoned players who got a Wii for serious gaming because of the quality of Nintendo's historical products and its loyalty to the fans. Newbie gamers who turned "hardcore" in a day maybe, they opted for HD systems: I have seen kids the half of my age beating the s*** out of Call of Duty while I was waiting to play Donkey Kong. Or grown up kids who got into videogaming with the PS2, they opted for HD systems aswell. But there's so many hardcore gamers who grew up with Sega and Nintendo who opted for a Wii!! We kept the industry going for more than 15 years and these 3rd parties are now sh***ing on us as if we were second class gamers who started to play yesterday because of these War FPS (whose only use is to romanticize the Army to the people by the way). I don't care about EA (f*** cares about EA anyway)? I want historic houses like Sega and Capcom to put out great stuff for the Wii: they owe us more than a few good titles.

Weird, I kinda agree with the EA guy. Not sure if a price cut is a solution, but Nintendo surely needs to be more cooperative with third parties. I don't want them to sell out but sure a bit less stubborness and "totalitarism" from them would have given us the double of the games we have at the moment.

spizzamarozzi commented on Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Blocked Marvel vs Capcom ...:

I'd rather have Tatsunoko, cause for now it's a little exclusive gem. By the way the Capcom guy is a moron. The Wii clearly needs more fighting games and Capcom's contribution has been minimal so far (considering that each system gets within the years approximately 10 Capcom fighting games). That's disrespectful towards Wii users and I think we should boycott Capcom products sooner or later.
