No, I am saying it's a pointless rant from some butthurt fanboy, and I do find it funny how it's just as bad as the comments below it

well, that's your own fault for actually reading it, then. :3

Sorry, man, I was under the impression that this was a forum for discussing the Wii U eShop. I must have been mistaken!

it is a forum for discussing the Wii U eShop. you're the one who brought Kotaku into the mix, though. :3

that said, i haven't read/don't care about the article at hand, but these new-console droughts are natural. It happened with the DSi, it happened with the 3DS, it's happening now with the Wii U. we get a bit of a surge at first, then nothing, then it gradually gets steadier as a platform fleshes itself out, Wii U eShop included. Early adopters always wind up playing the waiting game. if that idea bothers you, hold off before purchasing a brand new console.

Re: Bit.Trip Saga - eShop release. Lag?

theblackdragon

@jdarrell: if you're a CORE fan like me, be aware that the Saga version of it has serious audio desyncing issues throughout Exploration and Control — Discovery is passable, and i think you can get halfway through Exploration before it starts getting bad, but Control was unplayable IMO. Runner is similarly compromised; i forget exactly where the lag begins to start, but it's also no bueno. It's possible to get used to Runner's lag issues, as evidenced by users who have worked hard to perfect it regardless of its problems (i know bezerker99 is one of those people, haha), but i'd rather play it on the Wii and not have to deal with that kind of thing if i'm in the mood to play it at all :/

Re: Ask theblackdragon.

theblackdragon

@kylo: I'm not a huge fan of fighting games, but i do enjoy watching people play (and making fun of whoever gets their butt kicked, lol). i think the MvC and MvSF series games are probably the most fun to watch tbqh.

@moomoo: I don't really have much of an opinion on the Dreamcast. A friend of mine had one back when we were in high school, he was the only person i ever knew IRL who had one. I thought the controller was silly, and I wasn't impressed by the Sonic game he tried to get me to play.

@AmazingPopo_Man: The worst game i've ever played... hmm. right now, at this very point in time, it'd probably have to be Mario is Missing. idk, my 'worst game i've ever played' probably fluctuates depending on how fresh the memory is for me, lol :3

@MrNiceGuy: Diet Pepsi, but only because Diet Coke is horribad and i can't stand it D:

@TysonOfTime: er... thank you, i'll probably look into it eventually :3

@Machamp_King: I hate mushrooms, so Venusaur :3

@Forest_Ranger: no game really makes me thirsty, unless you count like Rock Band or something, in which case that game is way better played while drunk and surrounded by at least ten friends :3

@sir_Anthony: Watch you some House and you'll learn the answer to that question.

@Happy_Mask: Batman.

@sir_Anthony: No, Batman.

@Starman_Deluxe: i have no idea what that is...

@Pikminsi: idk, i skipped that generation. :3

@Chrysalis: Nope, and I'm afraid I have no desire to do so. My mother-in-law loves it, though.

But they wheren't intended for play while on disc dlc is.

People would also complain if the game was 50 per cent more expensive and had all the on-disc DLC unlocked from the outset.

So how is a company meant to be profitable while making these games that have DLC? Big budget games are not cheap to produce.

I would have thought and hoped that with the massive number of high profile game developers that went out of business last year that consumers would have woken up and realised that there is a profitability problem with game development at the moment, but nah, of course not.

You've missed his point entirely. The test levels and glitchy abilities and cheats mentioned in the original post were never meant to be accessed, period, not even by customers who handed over their firstborn. This isn't the same argument at all, but nice try, guys.
