tysonfury commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

I don't get it. Wii U is outselling XBone by thousands a week according to the controversial site vgchartz - and from a variety of sources its install base is currently 7m to XBones 5m and P24s 10m..

The argument that Wii U is not selling DOES NOT WASH

There must be another reason why so many 3rd parties are shying away, it must be something Nintendo themselves are doing or not doing...

tysonfury commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

Good to see easy-to-understand coloured buttons coming back to nintendo hardware - playing SM3DW with my dad at christmas was difficult, telling him to press the 'A' button and he needed his reading glasses to tell which one it was...

tysonfury commented on Minor Web Miiverse Update Allows You to Show O...:

Miiverse is still toooo sloooooow, so is eshop. It really puts me off posting or even checking my notifications. It's still browser based, why the web elements couldn't be integrated into a static OS I don't know - for example, Miiverse notifications in games like SM3DW, or, day I say it, Xbox 360's OS....

Incredible news!!!!!!! This is a great move by Nintendo and will turn Amiibo into a force to be reckoned with..
And I hope Wii Coconut Mall is one of the DLC classic tracks..

I wonder will online players be able to play DLC tracks without buying first..?

tysonfury commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

Great point - I think Wii U will be a second console for most people. Of course it will need to hit $250/£200 first.

I think this a happy future for Nintendo - their systems will always provide unique experiences from 1st and 2nd parties and indies. Big franchises will always split the difference on Xbone and PS4 and their successors. Nintendo is a small company that can sell at a low cost and still make large profits - I don't mind, long may this continue!

tysonfury commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

If you think about it, it makes sense that many third parties aren't supporting nintendo hardware as a general rule. Nintendo is a software developer. Consistent the best and most successful games company in history, and the primary competitor for EA, Activision, Ubisoft etc..

In the 80s, NES was the only game in town - if you were a software developer you had to go to them or maybe Atari, or Sega, who also developed their own software

Now there's Sony and Microsoft who mostly make phones, TVs and PCs (not including Windows), they're not trying to sell their own games. Meanwhile some software developers are bigger and richer than Nintendo and don't have to go begging to them to be allowed to distribute their games.

Except for cases like the Wii or the 3DS, where the platforms' runaway successes are irresistible cash cows to developers:
WHY WOULD ANY SOFTWARE COMPANY SUPPORT A PLATFORM THAT PROMOTES THEIR BIGGEST RIVAL!!?

Let's get used to the fact that nintendo systems sell nintendo games, and the gaps will be filled by indies, which nintendo is fully supporting, and 2nd parties (there are more and more of them recently)

That's not a bad deal.

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

Another point worth making - Assassins Creed has been a long established franchise on xbox and PS (starting with the woeful first game). Its reputation with gamers has been built up over time. Ubisoft can't honestly expect to introduce a new franchise to a whole new market in two years and expect it to sell the same numbers. This sounds like an excuse to me.

@FullbringIchigo
Mass Effect 3 on Wii U didn't sell because it was the only version of the game where players couldn't bring their previous save games from ME 1&2. For a game that's meant to be played as a trilogy, and where decisions you make influence the outcome in the sequels, it was a lazy and fatal error.

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

That's disappointing, I had never played an Assassins Creed game until I got AC3 on the Wii U, and am totally hooked. Loved it, and AC4, and will now probably have to buy a PS4 just to play ACU.

He's missing the opportunity to introduce their most popular franchises to new audiences. Repeat: I HAD NO INTEREST IN AC UNTIL IT CAME TO WII U!!

tysonfury commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (Europe):

I hope all these Mega Man releases are part of a deal that Nintendo has signed with Capcom, and in return Capcom will become an official 2nd-party developer, do all the legwork of porting Nintendo and third party VC titles from now on, and release HD Wii U exclusive remakes of all the Resident Evils, Street Fighters and Monster Hunter games

I hope.

tysonfury commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:

@Nico07
We do have Yoshi's Island on the GBA and it used the Super FX chip. And they were able to emulate the custom chips of the N64 (which my macbook still struggles with). I don't know the exact technology but it should fit that it's possible with some effort. Though I agree that Nintendo probably didn't see it as worthwhile.

tysonfury commented on Ocarina Of Time Began Life As A Remake Of Zeld...:

I think the people who hate Ocarina (I can't believe I just typed that sentence, but they exist..) are those who didn't play it when it first came out in 1998. At the time it was groundbreaking, in fact earth shattering (you can play an ocarina?? with buttons!?) but it has of course been surpassed by its 3D sequels..

tysonfury commented on Wii Sports Club Update Arrives, Probably Doesn...:

Wasn't convinced when just was just Tennis & Golf, but now that all 5 sports are out I actually think this a great game. Boxing is much more fun than some reviewers are giving credit for, and Baseball is excellent.

Hope they release some more sports soon, and maybe some gamepad-centered ones

tysonfury commented on Review: Wii Sports Club (Wii U):

I'd rather see a new Wii Sports collection that just uses the gamepad, I don't think this HD throwback to 2006 is going to win over any new believers

My suggestion: Wii Sports Touch
5 new sports,

  • Hang gliding
  • Windsurfing
  • Bodyboarding
  • Dodgeball
  • Netball

Maybe have it as DLC or something. Or while we're at it, where is Pilotwings for the Wii U?

tysonfury commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

  • A photo & video editing channel
  • Wii games load straight from Wii U menu without having to go into Wii mode first
  • Folders
  • post to miiverse straight from the home screen without having to go to the miiverse site first
  • In-game notifications
  • chat and photo channel in the home menu so that you don't have to quit your current game to use them
  • VC Suspend points 'in the cloud' and shareable between Wii U and 3DS versions
  • TVii in Europe
  • Wii VC games
  • Disc install

and then we're all done!

@JQuest
That sounds like a great idea - maybe release some NFC power rangers too, or maybe it Amiibo compatible. I'd buy it!

Starfox will be totally brilliant, it's exactly what we've been waiting for. I hope it uses the gamepad mic and camera for in game voice chat too.

tysonfury commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

99% of you do not know what you're talking about.

Twitch feeds have adverts at the beginning, I don't see the controversy here at all. It's a good thing that Nintendo are allowing people to upload their content at all rather than blocking it, and of course they have the right to tag their intellectual property for profit - they created it - the tag is about so much more than ad revenue by the way, but about claiming ownership of the owners work.

The ads that appear will most likely be for other nintendo games anyway. As if that's not enough, an affiliate programme is being announced to SHARE BACK THE PROFITS with the uploader. So who's complaining?

I only hope this is being announced because there's going to more Youtube integration into Wii U and 3DS games!

tysonfury commented on Fresh Nintendo Wii U Patent Looks Like a Wii M...:

@BertoFlyingFox

Yeah I think this a good thing - the Wii U needs more casual games and I think it's a good use of the gamepad - if marketed right it could have some of that original 'Wii factor' in that it looks fun to play when you watch others.

Throw in Miiverse sharing and DLC and you have a great title with lots of potential!

tysonfury commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

Reading this review I realised, Miiverse stamps are the 'achievements' that Nintendo promised - I had thought they would just appear in SM3DW and NES Remix, but it looks like every major Nintendo title will use them now. Cool!
