The Secret Developers: Wii U - the inside story

wario

4 years ago

@Mr-Writer You didn't get what I was trying to say (or I didn't explain it properly, sorry!). I did not intent to make other games look bad, I own every console except for PS4 & Xbox One, and I am hardly someone who only plays Nintendo games. But I think that fun matters more than raw technical power, which is something that often gets ignored in debates such as these ...

Point is: I think people should look over the technical aspects and should instead take a closer look at the games themselves. Wii U gets disrespected because it is weaker than PS4 & Xbox One, but why should anybody care that much if the games are so much fun?

The same could have been said about any other console in that position, regardless of the company. Take 3DS and PS Vita. Nobody complains about the 3DS being weaker than the Vita. Why is that so much different with Wii U and PS4 & Xbox One?

And just in case anyone tries to apply the "Fanboy-argument": As I've said, I own nearly every gaming console and my GOTY of 2013 wasn't Mario or Zelda, but BioShock Infinite. ;)

Kinda ironic that everyone calling himself a "gamer" debates about hardware and resolution, but ignores the fact that the Wii U had some of the best GAMES in 2013. Who cares which resolution Super Mario 3D World or Pikmin 3 are running at? I care about the games. And everything Nintendo has yet produced for Wii U is pure videogame fun - which should be the focus #1 for any gamer.

Ryse or Killzone may be beautiful games, but I'd prefer any Mario, Zelda or Donkey Kong over them, no matter the hardware.

Next-Gen Face-Off: Assassin's Creed 4

wario

4 years ago

Got the Wii U version at launch but I seriously think its unplayable.

Well, maybe not literally unplayable, but it's hardly any fun and nothing compared to the pure joy I now have with my PC version. I really want to support third party publishers who release their games on Wii U, I really do, but such lazy ports make me think about this twice the next time, and I have no doubt - sadly - that Watch Dogs will suffer the same fate.

@Cringles88 Take your money and time and play these titles in whatever order you like: Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Mario Kart 7, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Pokémon X/Y, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask.

I personally would give Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy, HarmoKnight (eShop) and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. a shot too.

Well, you couldn't do wrong with any of the bigger 3DS exclusives! :-)

Rayman Legends review

5 years ago

So many people here claiming they pre-ordered or will buy day-1! I just hope everyone is serious about this. Ubisoft and the development team REALLY deserve that commercial success considering the low sales of Rayman Origins. Don't wait for christmas and buy GTAV next month instead; spend your money on Rayman. GTA will be a massive hit, that's for sure, but Rayman needs our support now more than ever. :-)

Hoarding at the end of the world

wario

5 years ago

For me, The Last of Us is one of the most fascinating and interesting experiences I had with video games in the last few years, yet on the other side, as a game itself, it is pretty disappointing, repeating its very shallow mechanics over and over again without really evolving from beginning to end. I wished the stealth system was more complex; for instance, the Clickers actually heard pretty badly, and most of the enemies were just walking in circles instead of offering any challenge.

Very nice article, by the way!

Getting the game is one thing, getting all the DLC another one. I won't buy another Call of Duty for Wii U if Activision feels like there's no need for additional content on Wii U. Why aren't Wii U players get treated like players on the other consoles?

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. review

wario

5 years ago

@Blastoise I think you can't really compare Mario Kart, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. and NSMB2 just because there is a "Mario" hidden somewhere in the title ... Nintendo has many game series, and while they may look familiar they are just as different to each other as is Halo to Fable or God of War to Uncharted. It's not always just about the characters.

Watch Dogs includes 60 minutes of PS3-exclusive content

@abeeken If you didn't play it yet, you should add Rayman Legends to the list! The online challenge app which got released just a few days ago is incredibly addicting and well-designed and also contains the three normal levels the first demo had. Another game that uses the GamePad in some cool ways, especially fun when playing with friends or family :)

@abeeken I think what you said is exactly the biggest and best selling point the Wii U has: it is perfect for local multiplayer fan, with kids, with friends, with family - two screens, two different experiences (Nintendo Land, Rayman Legends, ZombiU MP, ..).

But I don't think that Vita & Smartglass can compete with Wii U in that regard; both need separate (and expensive) gadgets .. though I can imagine that Ubi puts Rayman Legends' GamePad featurs on PS3/Vita as well.

I just hope that people finally get to understand that two screens can really deliver unique experiences. If they do, Wii U would not only be selling better, publishers would also be keen enough to experiment with the system, the GamePad and all those features - and we get more games like ZombiU!

Probably wishful think either ;)

@abeeken There is definitely potential but I am afraid they just put a map and some shortcuts on the GamePad screen. ZombiU was so amazing because it was built from the ground up with the GamePad in mind. I doubt Ubi are so smart to make the Wii U version "unique", yet I hope so.

I don't expect anything I'd miss out. For me, the PC version is the one to get. Or Wii U - they could do some interesting things with the GamePad!

@Dark-Soul I guess they overestimated their own games and missed their release plans. Look at Pikmin 3 and W101, both should have been released in the "launch window" and are now pushed back to june/august. Plus, the saddening delay of Rayman Legends. It didn't look that bad at launch but since then ... I just hope that Nintendo have learned their lesson. New Mario Kart, 3D Mario and Smash Bros. at E3 will be the first step. For me, I only want Pikmin 3 to be happy :D

@Dark-Soul Then I think yu're gonna be pleased in a few months/years. I'm very confident that Nintendo will support the Wii U the same way they did with 3DS, starting this E3. They would be stupid to just let that wonderful console (yeah, it is - it is just missing games) die. Take a look at Wii U again in middle 2014 and things will be different. It's always the first-party-software that makes a console.

@Dark-Soul I don't regret having bought the console day-one, I loved NSMBU and ZombiU and right now MH3U and LEGO City are eating up my time. But it's kind of sad to see how Wii U gets ignored by nearly every third-party-publisher. That's the point I meant ;)
