Tried the demo.  While I would have preferred a pure 2D Castlevania I thought it was really good!

The hobbit is probably the first movie I’ve ever seen where I would pay for an edition with an hour cut out…

First I’ve heard of it.  I watched the video and it really didn’t do much for me though, I can see why it didn’t turn out well.  The presentation itself seemed fine but the game had no personality. To get my kickstarter money you either need to be making something I can’t get elsewhere or have a completely charming concept.

I think the reason backwards compatibility goes away is because the people who really want it are not really their primary demographic.  Even if there are a lot of you, and there probably are, you have pretty much admitted the fact that you mostly buy/play games much later in their life cycles.  If you are not going to buy the latest and greatest on release day at $60 a piece there is little incentive for them to try and keep you happy.

I wish this wasn't a Wii U exclusive as i would love to play this,this game being the only game due out for Wii U that i want to play,the rest i have no interest in whatsoever...unfortunately the days of me buying a console for one game(PS3/MGS4)are long gone
People need to stop wishing for non-exclusives. Tongue  For games to actually take advantage of what the WiiU can do they NEED to be built from the ground up for the platform.  If that doesn’t happen there is no reason for the game to be on the WiiU in the first place.

Now if Nintendo pulled a Sega I would be very happy but for this generation at least it is what it is and I want some more good games on the WiiU!

“With the next Xbox, you supposedly have to have an internet connection, and the discs are watermarked, whereby once played on one console it won’t play on another," Livingston said. "So I think the generation after that will be digital-only.”

That would be a worse decision than having a code based requirement for a game that ties to an online account.  If your console breaks and you need a new one your whole library has to be replaced?  How about if a new version of the console comes out and you want to upgrade?

Spoilers for my ending...
Spoiler for Hiden:
I was really disappointed that my final mission to stop Havelock was as basic as climbing the lighthouse, walking into a room where he was standing alone at a table, Blinking behind him for a choke-out, and letting Emily out of a locked room. As soon as she jumped into my arms, the final cutscene and credits final dialogue with the big bad guy, just a summary of everyone's life after the rescue.  It wasn't bad, but I guess I expected a bit more.
Spoiler for Hiden:
The bad guy has a big long monologue if you jump down in front of him instead of just killing him outright.

 I get the impression that the developers are trying to send us a message, but the only message I'm receiving is that they're sexist.
I think it could be looked at as sexist but not in the way you are implying.  It comes down to most men want to protect/shelter women but they don’t give a damn about other men.

If you want a vulnerable male protagonist you can also find them in a few games, although it seems to always be first person.  I’m thinking games like Amnesia or even ZombiU.

They're already seriously struggling for sales, with only 57K consoles sold in January.  With very few big games scheduled from third parties I'm pretty sure it will quickly become an also-ran that is only really good for the Nintento first-party games.  Which will be enough for a niche audience.

This is a true statement but I’m not sure why it should surprise anyone.  The Wii was an anomaly.  People buy Nintendo systems for Nintendo exclusives.  Nintendo has a unique degree of nostalgia and charm that the other console producers can’t touch.  Look at Playstation all-stars vs Smash Bros. Sales so far are abysmal because there are really only three games on the system that you can’t buy elsewhere.  I really don’t know why there was a push to get third party ports on the system in the first place.  And I do mean ports.  If a developer wants to throw everything into the game, like ZombiU, then I’m all for it.  But if it’s a game you can buy somewhere else, only now with touchscreen support, than they are better off putting their efforts somewhere else.

That said, once a few games come out I think the WiiU will do well for itself in the role of a second console.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate demos, F-Zero for .$30, and PicDun 2!

Spoiler for Nintendo Weekly Download:
Wii U demos
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Trine 2: Director’s Cut

Wii U Virtual Console
F-Zero – 30 cents

3DS demos
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed

3DS Virtual Console

3DS retail
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan – $39.99

3DS Download
Picdun 2: Witch’s Curse – $4.99
Viking Invasion 2 – Tower Defense – $7.99

I picked up F-Zero on the WiiU yesterday and I’m actually pretty impressed how it’s handled on the system.  When you start the game you get a SNES controller display and you can remap any button on the SNES to any button on the WiiU pad.  I also saw the option to add a checkpoint into your current game to save progress.  Of course the best feature for me is that the games can be played directly from the WiiU pad without needing the TV on.

Can I just vote for Alpha Centauri instead?  I played that first and all the civ games have been a disappointment in comparison.
1012  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Rayman Legends on: February 19, 2013, 04:58:27 PM
A new appeasement offer, the Wii U will now get the online challenge mode for free in April.  This mode will contain daily and weekly level challenges for between 1-5 players.  This will be the first time Rayman has ever been online and will feature leader-boards and more.

It's not what I wanted but it's better than a demo.  Doesn't seem like it's going to be enough to calm the fans down though.

Not sure what class you are playing but I'd stay away from the PsiOps class for a first go around.

This.  I would choose a navy/tech guy if you want to experience everything the game has to offer.  Hack doors, rewire security systems, etc.  PsiOps is fun as well but pretty hard until you get used to the game mechanics.  The heavy weapons guy just seems a bit dull in comparison to the others.
1014  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/18) on: February 18, 2013, 04:36:32 PM
F-Zero (WiiUShop)

If your thumbs hit each other when using that controller, you're doing it wrong. I've never ever had that happen to me. The thought has never even struck me.
Eh, I actually have a bit of the same problem. If I put more than just the tip of my thumbs on the sticks my fingers hit.  If I were to rest my thumb in the same position as it sits on the 360 controller I can actually touch the opposite joystick from the one my thumb is resting on.
1017  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Orbis. aka PlayStation 4? The rumors begin. on: February 15, 2013, 05:45:46 PM
Another photo of the previously pictured controller.

It looks OK, nothing great.  I would actually prefer a bit more bulk to it.  As one of about three people who own one I have to say the WiiU controller is actually my favorite in a long time.  I have large hands and both the 360 and PS3 controllers cause my hands to cramp up after about 30 minutes.
1018  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Rayman Legends on: February 13, 2013, 07:30:47 PM
They have over 10,000 signatures on the petition now.  Ubisoft offered a NEW exclusive demo for the WiiU which just made people angrier.  Now they’ve fired the PR person who came up with the demo idea and even the developers are publicly opposing the delay.

The whole thing is turning into a nightmare for Ubisoft now as even non-gaming websites are starting to pick up the story.  I saw an article on Forbes this morning.  It looks like they have their own personal ME3 style PR disaster on their hands

If the hardware is good and it only costs $100, is that really so much to pay every year?  At $8 a month I don’t think you can complain that much.

I LOVED the story and voice acting of the LoK games but the actual gameplay was pretty bad.  If they want to keep the same writers and voice talent and move the gameplay in a new direction sign me up.

I imagine any minute now they will be announcing that this delay is not related to the game going multi-platform.

The development team confirmed that wasnt the case.  They aren't happy either.

I completely understand you but you have to understand one thing. This is not a decision taken by the development team, this comes from really really high up, so please don't pick on the game.

If you're pissed, imagine how we feel. Think on the situation, we've been making overtime with this game practically since May preparing E3, and then almost a demo per month (gamescon, Wii U presentation, shops, eShop, etc...) and at the same time trying to actually finish the game. We had a first delay because it was obvious we couldn't finish on time but we gave it all to be there on February. What face do you think we had when the week we had to close the game we're being told it's not going to be released? I couldn't believe it. 

For practical matters, you'll have to wait for some months for the game to be released and will most likely serve for more content to be added and do it better. For us, this means we've spent 6 months barely seeing our wifes, kids, and friends for nothing because, after all, such a haste wasn't needed. Believe it, it was a hell to swallow these news. - Xavier Poix

1023  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Rayman Legends on: February 07, 2013, 06:32:10 PM
The amount of hatred they are getting on their Facebook account right now is amazing.  I would say they’ve gotten well over 200 hate posts in less than an hour.  If they are smart they will reinstate the original release date and release the other versions with a couple extra levels or something.
1024  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii U] Rayman Legends on: February 07, 2013, 05:58:22 PM
Some bad news for people looking forward to this one at the end of the month.

Rayman Legends has been delayed once again, to "early September." This is annoying news for Wii U owners, who already saw it delayed out of the launch window and into February and March. But it's good news for PS3 and Xbox owners who had yet to pick up a Wii U, as the game is now planned for simultaneous release on those platforms. - Joystiq

Horrible business practice.  I have no problem with an eventual multiplatform release but delaying a finished game 6 months is unacceptable.

The forums are starting to go ballistic with multiple people canceling preorders and threatening to boycott the company’s other games.
1025  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Are You Stepping Into the Next Gen? on: February 01, 2013, 05:48:58 PM
Given a couple years and some price drops probably both, but I’m in no hurry.  I purchased a WiiU on release day because I enjoy first party Nintendo games.  I can’t really name a first party Sony or Microsoft game series that I care about. I will always be a PC gamer first and most third party titles will come out there anyways so I can wait.

The gameplay and graphics in the trailer look fine but that was possibly the worst voice over I’ve ever heard from a game.  Apparently bad enough that the head writer stepped in and disowned it, saying that it’s not from the game itself.

I loved the first Sly Cooper but every subsequent game slightly less.  The problem was I enjoyed playing as Sly but didn’t care for the other gameplay modes.  I hope this one moves back towards the original and limits playing as the side characters.

I got the PC version from Greenman Gaming for $11.25, and now I'm just waiting for Steam to unlock it tomorrow afternoon.  Reviews are in the 7-8 range, with a 7 from Gamespot and 7.9 from IGN.
Picked it up on Greenman as well.  I had a $10 credit on there from something so I ended up getting it for $1.25!
1031  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Oddworld wants to know what game we want to see next on: January 20, 2013, 10:15:30 PM
The Brutal Ballad of Fangus Klot - Fangus Klot was mentioned in Strangers Wrath.  He was a gunslinger, so this would probably be a FPS similar to Strangers Wrath.

Oddworld: Squeek's Oddysee – A character from Munch’s Oddysee.  From the odworld wiki it sounds like Squeek’s race can take control of people.  Maybe a 3rd person stealthy type of game?

Oddworld: The Hand of Odd – I remember they were throwing around ideas for a squad based strategy type game with this name over 10 years ago.

SligStorm – No idea.

The WiiU version has been pushed back if anyone cares.  I was interested because I like the way the motion tracker was integrated in ZombiU but it’s still far more likely that I would pick it up on PC for the co-op experience.

I wonder if the side quest in Fallout 3 'Trouble on the Homefront' is a  slywink and a nod to that Spoiler you just posted,as the side quests ends similar
Spoiler for Hiden:
after helping vault 101 and restoring peace,you are asked to leave and not come back as there were still people who thought you were a dick and it would upset some of them if you stayed(or visited whenever you wanted)

and that second paragraph is what 'The President' asks you to do in FO3,release the crap into the water supply

Spoiler for Hiden:
I actually liked the “president” nod in Fallout 3.  Fallout 2 was a bit more poignant, however, since the president was a real person who had been democratically elected.  Fallout2 basically gave you the choice of dooming a bunch of people whose only fault was being born in isolation and electing an ass as president, or choosing to kill off all the people of mainland America.

I don’t remember Vault 101 kicking me out.  Maybe I was just too loveable.  icon_smile
