whatisyourforte commented on Review: Ice Cream Surfer (Wii U eShop):

to the contrary, i just picked this up on Destura for Windows, and had a blast playing it (even if it only took me 30 min to beat). the graphics, premise, characters, etc. are all a BREATH OF FRESH AIR compared to all of the normal schmups we play everyday. Yes the game is rather easy, but there are many reasons to replay the same levels (try to get all the ICE CREAM letters). I agree that there could be more to round out the package, but for what it cream surfer is awesome.



whatisyourforte commented on Sonic Lost World Gets Patched Up On Wii U:

it doesn't really matter that much about the rings/lives, whether you get 5-10 more on a GAME OVER screeen, because they're infinite regardless. i'm certainly not complaining, though, since this and a lot of the other updates will streamline the experience (especially adding normal controls to the Wisp powers). This game was great to begin with, but I didn't really think they had to make it easier. It wasn't as hard as some of the reviews portrayed it to be.



whatisyourforte commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

oh and to the people that think GTA is "childish" or "immature" many games do you know on Nintendo systems that attack issues such as America's torturing of detainees after 9/11? How many games do you play that successfully recreate a satirical look of modern America, with its superficiality, shallowness, and obsession with material items? Exactly.



whatisyourforte commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

@element187 i play games of all kinds. i'm a collector. this article just comes off as someone who has to go against the norm just for the sake of doing so (or because they're butthurt that WiiU can't get any GTAV-caliber titles). I am not the hugest GTA fan by any means (never have finished a single GTA game), but I can certainly respect the fact that the new one is one of the best games ever made. Period. It will hold a place in gaming history (whether you like it or not), and as a collector, it's a no-brainer for me to purchase it. I plan on also getting Wind Waker HD, but to put that in the same ballpark as GTAV is pretty fanboyish to me. Let's celebrate good games in general, and not this "don't pay attention to that game getting amazing reviews for those other platforms, we have an HD remake coming in three days" attitude. I love games of all types, for all platforms, etc.



whatisyourforte commented on Review: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist (...:

best game on wiiU to date. loaded with features, replay-value, and is a great example of the powers of the wiiU (graphics, gamepad integration, etc.). i have most of the wiiU games (i'm a collector), and this is the first game i've played for it that really held my interest since Lego City Undercover. This game, however, is much more streamlined of an experience and much more mature in terms of the story and gameplay. if you're on the fence....just get it. trust me, you won't regret it!



whatisyourforte commented on Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U Version's Perfor...:

best game on the wiiU right now. loaded with options (even with the exclusion of local co-op), some of the best graphics on wiiU (if not the best), and definitely one of the most exciting single-player adventures to hit the console to this date.



whatisyourforte commented on Sonic Lost World Deadly Six Edition Announced,...:

I am all for WiiU games getting more content. Seems like SEGA is dedicated to making a beefy game. One question: Do the graphics look fuzzy and/or blurry to anyone else but me? I'm hoping it's just crappy screen-capturing, and this baby screams in HD.



whatisyourforte commented on Review: The Wonderful 101 (Wii U):

I played the demo and was immediately enthralled by this game. I choose the hardest of the three difficulty levels, and didn't seem to run into the crazy difficulty issues some of the reviews have lead people to believe. i also didn't have a problem drawing the different shapes for unity attacks, but the demo doesn't get to the part where you're drawing the more complicated ones (i.e. the whip). I can't wait to pick this up. Loved every minute of it.
