Topic: Why no save state in Wii U games?

Posts 1 to 16 of 16


They really need to implement save states in Wii U games. The Bowser battle in Paper Mario Color Splash is impossible without save states. It's not right to force players to be right when it comes to timing or can't beat a game just because the timing is off. If they can do save states for older games there's no reason why it can't be done for Wii U games.

For real?

So Anakin kneels before Monster Mash and pledges his loyalty to the graveyard smash.


Sure there is a good reason. The Switch is coming out in 4 months. Meaning that development is pretty much done for the Wii U.

Now we just need @ogo79 to pop in here and tell us how manly he is and doesn't use save states.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)


Seems to me the problem isn't the save states. You're just terrible at playing.

Don't get the Trauma Center series, you'll be ripping your hair out by the final mission.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

@Luna_110 That may be true but my gaming time is kind of limited so unfortunately don't have the patience to fight the same battle over and over. Plus the last battle is hard to anticipate when Bowser attacks since it keeps showing him charging up an attack. Not sure if the game will adjust the difficulty of the final battle after multiple failed attempts like it does for that ship voyage level. Why did they discontinue the super play mode that was introduced in DKC Returns? I had to cheat my way through Snifit or Whifit level by using my cell phone to take photos and videos throughout the challenge.

Play Animal Crossing. That game is a snoozefest when it comes to difficulty.

I thought he was talking about Wii games on Wii U.

What console has natively supported save states? It defeats the purpose of game design breaking every new game on your system. Cheating is only optional in older games as a way to entice you to play them can get the nostalgia trip with out dealing with any difficulty or challenge unless you want it.



Wii U needs a rewind button as well while we're at it.
