Shockingly slim release schedule. I hope there's much more that just hasn't been announced yet. Makes the Wii U's first year release schedule look positively meaty by comparison!

Knowing Nintendo I kinda expected them to charge a lot more than that so I'm pleasantly surprised by the price and surprised that anyone could complain about it. I expect it'll be well worth it.

The Resident Evil films are hardly Oscar material but I've always enjoyed them for what they are - mindless zombie romps with plenty of monsters and special effects. This final installment will no doubt be more of the same and there's nothing wrong with that imo.

Super Mario Maker update to add mid-level checkpoints, new levels

Chompee

3 years ago

It'd be great if a future update allowed levels to be ranked so that the poorer ones could be less visible and better ones more accessible. At the moment too many of the top ranking levels are those automatic ones which get very boring very quickly. It can be very difficult to find the decent levels among the dross!

According to those figures the ratio is actually closer to 14:1, which is an amazing achievement for Nintendo and dismal for Sony.

If the Wii U Gamepad is only being used to display an overhead map, wouldn't it be less cumbersome (not to mention save electricity) to have an option to display this map on the big screen? Seems like using the GamePad simply for the sake of using the GamePad.

Wii U Darksiders 2 graphics "at least as good" as PS3, Xbox 360 versions'

Chompee

6 years ago

"At least as good" is a bit meaningless really.

Strictly speaking the graphics on 3DS are "at least as good" as the original DS (for example) but obviously we know it's capable of much more.

Let's just wait and see - not that I'm overly worried about the graphics to be honest anyway. I'm much more interested in finding out what surprises the Wii U has in store!

Perhaps they'd have enough room if they cut back on the huge pre-owned sections of crappy shovelware titles or wall space devoted to useless, cheap peripherals that nobody in their right mind would ever buy.
