Re: $1.2 billion

SNES 2 is what's required.

Re: $1.2 billion

While I'm all for more vairety I'm not convinced something like Wave Race is the killer app the Wii-U is looking for, I'd love to be proved wrong though. I think there's quite a difference between pleasing individuals like us and satisfying the mass market. Nah Wave Race ain't a killer-app for sale...

Re: $1.2 billion

Well it certainly was that. :D It's just frustrating as hell Mootown. Nintendo have a wealth of diverse franchises I would love to see on Wii U in any form. A HD Wave Race 64 perhaps with improved visuals etc. Make it a £15 eShop item and I will be there. F-Zero X. Update the engine, unlimted draw ...

Re: $1.2 billion

Here's a fact - Donkey Kong Returns on Wii outsold all of the Metroid Prime games put together. So? The Wii U has sold a tiny amount. Smashed by the PS4 in a week or two. The strategy is clearly not working. When DCKR came out, the user base was already huge and we hadn't seen many really classy 2D...

Re: Which battle was the best?

Hardware battles are hilarious. I couldn't give a f**k whose logo is on the hardware. It either plays games I want to play or it doesn't. So in case of the Wii vs 360 vs PS3, I just bought them all :) The 'best' battle though was Megadrive and SNES as I loved all those press ads where each manufactu...

Re: $1.2 billion

Just to put it into context, I'm only talking about not wanting to play a new 3D Mario game on a touchscreen. Not once did I say 'all touchscreen games are rubbish' or 'I think all Nintendo waggle controls are ace!" or in fact, anything else, other than I don't want to play a new 3D Mario game on a ...

Re: $1.2 billion

So a touch screen is bad, yet holding a steering wheel in the air with Mario Kart on the Wii was fine ? No, holding a wheel in the air with Mario Kart on the Wii wasn't fine, it was s**t. No, it was great. My daughter would never have learned how to play otherwise. Without that, she would have give...

Re: $1.2 billion

If I ever only have the choice of playing the next 3D Mario game with touchscreen controls I will kill myself. This why Nintendo make their own hardware, so they can dictate the gameplay experience of their games, rather than being constricted by an industry standard, in this case touchschreen only...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I'm having a love hate relationship with Killzone ShadowFall at the moment. There's parts of it I really enjoy, and it looks lovely. But it can really frustrate at times, stealth doesn't work blah blah etc etc. Same for me. Looks amazing but sometimes you think you're well hidden, snipe one guy and...

It's kind if how I felt when Child of Eden was ruined by Kinect implementation, only more serious.

Re: what's your favourite Lego game?

Lego City Undercover by miles - by not being tied to a license, the entire game is just parodies of movies and games and it's actually funny. That and it's got a cool GTA-meets-Lego world to bomb around in. The entire Arnie section is hilarious, there's a Lego builder/workman who talks in Arnie quot...
