What makes Shenmue 2's open world so special?

ColdShoulder

Modern open worlds dwarf Shenmue 2, however cities like San Andreas feel more like sprawling movie sets. Great at a glance, or at speed but stop for a second and you can see the gaps. Shenmue's Hong Kong felt organic, pretty much any NPC had dialogue and an answer for you if you stopped them.

But, if ever there was a generation to pass us Dad's by surely it's this one? The Wii U release calendar has been perfect for my limited game time and barely existent disposable income.

When this was announced I was admittedly a little disappointed, so I went back to give DKCR the time it deserves to find out why the sequel. I'm converted. It's as fun as a 2d Mario but they nailed the difficulty and now this is one of the biggest reasons I'm looking forward to picking up a Wii U one day.

Nintendo UK not ditching Wii U Basic model despite GameStop withdrawal

ColdShoulder

5 years ago

@wogsy81 I think because they normally only have 1 version of each of their key titles on each console they've held off to focus on quality. I think 3rd parties have let them down a lot.
Their attention has been on 3DS, i'm sure Wii U will come good eventually. Might turn out to be another 3rd place Gamecube like console. Without mass market appeal there could be more niche 3rd party support and less partygame riff-raff.

The reason 8gb is acceptable is that you can plug in your own USB hard drive right? I don't have one yet, not until the price comes down but I really don't have a beef with the Basic.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Wii U "up for consideration", Rockstar boss says

ColdShoulder

6 years ago

I got bored with the boring missions in 4 and didn't finish it. 5 looks like more of the same, great production, vast city, rich character development and plots and excellent cutscenes; but the usual repetitive gameplay. For that reason I won't be playing 5 on 360. If Wii U added some kind of extra element to the gameplay that could mix it up a bit for me I'd be interested.

It's not that far-fetched either. Development teams have to be doing 'something' during console transitions. Making good on existing games is a no brainer. Expect to see a fair few ports on Wii U while publishers wind down on the current generation and look forward to the next.

Im not down on this at all.

1. Hard drives are a necessity now, and Nintendo aren't forcing you to own and use their own branded massively over priced hard drives.

2. External powered usb hdds are CHEAPER that their usb powered counterparts.

The only good thing about all this negativity is that hopefully after early adopters sales will dry up like the 3ds and they'll be forced to drop the price.

I can see more uses for the gamepad in bf3. It would be nice to have some peripheral vision in the aircraft, setting mcom charges by looking down and interacting with something in your hands would imo also be an improvement on holding a button down and waiting.
I don't get the hate, and I don't get why people think a map on the gamepad means it gets removed from the hud.
