wreckgar23 commented on Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch (Wii U eShop):

A fair score, though I experienced a few sound issues that I found more jarring than the drops in frame rate. Some dialogue would be missed were it not for subtitles and a fair bit of distortion at points. Enjoyed it though, but would recommend picking it up on another platform if you're interested and you have that option

Not a game dev but don't get why x86 of itself would matter. It's all about the tools. Guess backwards compatibility will be with virtualization. The thing about talk of the NX 'platform' is that I'm not used to platform meaning anything concrete anymore.
Iwata previously talked about iOS and android and iirc how 3ds and wiiu successors could benefit from a shared set of tools for how you'd write for their hardware/platform/whatever

Really enjoyed this. Liked how they got so much out of the mechanic, to the extent that getting past a tricky section would put a smile on my face, appreciating the ingenuity. If I'd not picked it up yet I wouldn't be waiting for the physical release.

6 year old sat next to me playing the original Legend of Zelda on 3DS Virtual Console. His big sister plays a lot of Tomodachi Life. Animal Crossing they obviously both like. Can also recommend Kirby, Pilot Wings, Harvest Moon and Freakyforms

Took the plunge with this game last week and was sufficiently moved to register on this site and comment on the review! It's definitely difficult, unevenly so, which, for me, took a bit away from the enjoyment of swinging off rails and shooting stuff. Filled a swear box getting to 80-odd cats. The updates sound like they're exactly what's needed to get more people to appreciate it. Enough for a re-review?

I agree with the score. Review doesn't mention the difficulty level though, which can be ridiculous early on and I feel is quite uneven, with some later levels being more forgiving. Experienced getting stuck on one level like the reviewer. Best played with a second player to keep an eye on the TV so that they can give you the tips and cat locations that are sometimes displayed on it!
