I would love to see ZombieLuigiU.

Would Luigi be the zombies or the protagonist?  Either way I think I would have to buy that.  icon_lol

I know there are only about three people here with a WiiU but does anyone have impressions on LuigiU yet?

Quote from: McNutt on June 19, 2013, 09:34:45 PM

That extra scene does make more sense as to why the engineer gets angry.  I don't think it justifies getting angry enough to kill everybody.  That still makes him seem like a psychopath.  Plus I still have issues with their decision to wipe out Earth.  Why?  How do they know what the people of Earth have become?  Wasn't that engineer in suspended animation for a really long time?  For some reason I was thinking that those ships had been like that for hundreds or thousands of years. 

Still, nothing about that script made sense.  The engineers created life on our planet and possibly other planets.  They leave clues for us to go to this planet and find them and when we do it's actually just their biohazard stockpile planet where they were planning our doom.  Huh?
I looked at it like this; humanity was little more than a curiosity.  Letís say you had an ant farm then, and one day the ants became advanced enough to talk face to face with you.  Instead of revering you the ants said that they were your equal in every way.  Would you welcome the ants with welcome arms or would you be insulted?  And to that end, how guilty would you feel for killing a few ants?

Or you can look at it this way.  You created life.   Knowing that it would evolve you wanted to create a failsafe in case it evolved too much.  If the life stayed on its planet then fine, you could study it from afar as a science experiment.  However, if the life became advanced enough to seek you out then that meant that one day it might pose a threat to you.  In that case, isnít it better to setup a trap to wipe them out before they became powerful enough to put you in danger?

For anyone who found Prometheus lacking, track down the cut scenes on Youtube.  In my opinion they vastly improved the movie and I have no idea why they were cut. 

Does she not run in a straight line?  Does the scientist not try to get all cuddly with the hideous monster?  Do the connections to Alien suddenly exist?
No, characters still do dumb things but in a couple places you learn WHY they do dumb things.  There is generally more character development and a better understanding of peopleís motivations. 

I mentioned this is the old Prometheus thread but this is one example that would have been MUCH better with the cut content.
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the theatrical cut the Space Jockey/ Engineer wakes up and for no reason starts killing people.

In the deleted scene he actually has a brief conversation with the people in the room.  The Engineer is actually fairly calm until the Old Dude starts yelling that humans are their equals and that they are both like gods; at which point the engineer becomes offended and then attacks the people in the room.

For me this makes it perfectly clear as to why the Engineers would choose to exterminate the human race after their creation and added extra meaning to the movie.

I've never played an Animal Crossing game before, at any point do we get a backpack or any-form or extended carry space?  I find it a bit tedious to have return and sell things as often as I do, especially now that my equipment takes up a fair amount of my inventory space.

I also have 38 collectibles.  Do these do anything?  I noticed a special bit of dialogue on a comic book but that has been it so far.

Now that Iím a bit further in the game some of the sheen has worn off for me.  I loved the first hour of the game but once it threw me into a Clicker heavy area I became very annoyed.  In a game like this I want to explore and collect everything but I feel that the game punishes you for that with the fact that you can be killed instantly, thus making you have to re-collect everything since it saves only at the start of an area.  Combine this with a stealth focus and itís just too tedious for me to play like that.

My enjoyment went back up though once I discovered that you really donít have to be that careful.  Now I save all my equipment for Molotovs, nail bombs, carry a good melee weapon and take Clickers head on.  It helps that my game apparently bugged out in my favor and I got the shiv self defense upgrade for free.  I had been saving all my pills (havenít spent any yet) and once I picked up an upgraded shiv recipe I found that I now had the ability.  Convenience!

Also, at least on normal, if you hit a Clicker with a bottle and you can do a one shot kill on them with a melee weapon if you hurry.  Strangely, other Clickers donít seem to hear the bottle break.

858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Fallout 3 or Fallout New Vegas? on: June 16, 2013, 02:30:07 AM
Vegas will always get my vote as the better game but since you are replaying that goes double.  Vegas has multiple endings as well as location specific endings for every town you visit; which means every play through can be different based on your actions.  F3 on the other hand will always end in the same way.

860  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC] The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing on: June 15, 2013, 06:02:00 PM
Iím guessing itís more of an expand-alone expansion pack.  Given that itís a $15 game Iím ok with that.  I do wish they would fix multiplayer first though since Iím holding out for that.

Iíve gotta say, this is one of the first console games in a long time to hold my interest. 

Iím a little surprised by the reports that itís a long game though.  The in game percentage tracker says Iím at 15% after only about an hour.  That seems to imply only about 7 hours. 
864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thief 4? on: June 13, 2013, 11:37:28 PM
Dishonored was very much a spiritual successor to the original Thief games, perhaps even more so than Thief3 was.  I think there is still a chance this could turn out ďalrightĒ as a stand-alone title but trying to link it to the Thief brand is doing it a disservice. 

Fans of the originals donít want it because of the changes and everyone else isnít going to care either way.
865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thief 4? on: June 13, 2013, 07:20:02 PM
My take away from the video: A lot of people are complaining about the combat being a focus, which is valid if it really is a focus but I was more bothered by the type of combat.  My problem is that the combat looks WORSE than what was in Thief 1 & 2.  The originals had a fun sword fighting system where you could change the angle of your sword to counter attacks and parry (this was removed in Thief 3).  The new system looks like simple block and counter attacks with horrible quick timey type events (focus) added on.

Not sure.  There was some bad press going around after it happened.  I believe there were 3-4 reviews in the 70ís range.  It may have been a direct publisher action.  Some game companies basically say, ďYou can review our game in advance as long as you donít give it a rating below XĒ.  Those reviewers may have broken that agreement.

Metacritic removed all the negative reviews for the game. Or rather, all the mediocre reviews, none were really negative.

If youíre only going to get one get a PS4.  I like my WiiU a lot but it is definitely a secondary system.  There just arenít enough games in the library right now to support it.  Microsoft has made almost every mistake imaginable with the Xbox One.  Unless you really love the idea of playing Halo or Gears of War I would stay far far away.

That is just about one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Really Microsoft? You think you know what's best for gamers? Thanks for looking out for us. The world is a better place because of you. How's that XBox None DRM policy working out for ya?
The only time I play fighters is when I have a group of friends sitting in my living room with me.  Every person tries each character a couple times and we pass the controllers around.  Is this not a thing for most people?

A couple more Nintendo trailers:

Super Mario 3D World ĖWiiU Ė Unremarkable but looks fun.

Rayman Legends E3 CGI trailer Ė WiiU Ė Now with jiggle physics!
Or if you prefer actual gameplay to exaggerated Viking womenÖ - Iíve played Rayman Legends quite a lot so far and I have to say, between what Iíve already played and the trailer, they are leagues ahead of the platformers that Nintendo themselves make.

The Wonderful 101 Ė WiiU Ė If Freedom Force and Pikmin had a baby who went insane.

X Ė WiiU Ė Monolith Soft giant mech action RPG thingy.

Yoshi's New Island Ė 3DS- Love the painted style.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Ė 3DS Ė I hope itís better than Paper Mario Super Star.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Ė 3DS Ė Awesome.

Other M, to me, killed the Metroid series for a while.

It's the only Metroid game I haven't played. From what I read, it didn't seem like a Metroid game I wanted to play and neither of my kids were interested in it either.
The gameplay is Other M was actually fine.  The problem was they shoehorned in a train wreck of a story that took center stage and gave Sammus a daddy complex and more or less destroyed any credibility she had as a bounty hunter.

So, what did you think of the Nintendo conference, as our resident WiiU ownder L9?
MehÖ  To be fair most of those games do interest me and I will probably buy them but nothing really stood out with any WOW factor. 

The biggest problem I see is none of those games (aside from Party U :sigh:) will make use of the WiiU pad in any meaningful way, which makes people ask why itís there in the first place.  The best thing you can say is that you wonít have to worry about motion controls. 

Itís unfortunate because the pad really does allow for innovation in gaming.  ZombiU showed this very well.  Hell, even Rayman Legends does a fair job of this.  Nintendo really should have pushed for a new Metroid or a Zelda to show off what the system can do that is unique.

Bayonetta 2 -2014- New gameplay trailer.  I have no idea what is going on but itís pretty and could be fun.

Mario Kart 8 - 2014 Ė Video.  Itís HD Mario Kart.  

Super Smash Bros. Ė Unknown Ė New characters so far include a villager from Animal Crossing and Megaman.  Cross play with 3DS is possible.

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze ĖFall - A brand new side-scrolling adventure for the Wii U, starring Donkey Kong and the return of Dixie Kong.
