  1. I don't want it both ways. I want amiibo to die or at least be kept a million miles away from games. No just die.
  2. Please stop making "erroneous" statements. Splatoon has content already on the disc but it's locked away behind amiibo. 60 challenges, equipment, weapons, minigames. Mario Party 10 had a full mode locked away unless each New Super Mario series amiibo were bought.
  3. Wii U General Discussion

    This is the Wii U discussion thread. They both helped and made games for handhelds during the Wii generation as well so what's your point?
  4. Wii U General Discussion

    It's almost as if your fanboyish defending has become more blind and knows no bounds, Seggiebii. 1 game in 6 years(unless something springs out of the ether before the NX arrives) from 2 studios, is that acceptable? A whole console generation.

  6. Wii U General Discussion

    Nintendo have very few Western based studios and I got to thinking about what they've been doing the past couple of generations. Retro Studios during the Wii made Metroid Prime 3, Metroid Prime Trilogy and Donkey Kong Country Returns. Next Level Games made Mario Strikers Charged and Punch Out!! and also worked on various third party games for Wii including Ghost Recon, Spiderman and Transformers. They also did a Wiiware spin-off of Punch Out. This generation Retro have made Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and that's most likely all they'll do and Next Level Games have made nothing for Wii U. It's a sorry state of affairs. That's 5 main first party games versus 1.

  8. Super Mario Maker

    http://mynintendonews.com/2015/06/20/heres-a-first-look-at-the-super-mario-maker-mystery-mushroom-unlock-page/ While the site think they might not all be amiibo, I think it's possible they might be. They might be alternate skins for each amiibo. I remember seeing Isabelle in a green jumper. Edit: And there it is. http://gonintendo.com/stories/236543-will-super-mario-maker-give-you-different-colored-amiibo-costumes Random Super Mario awesomeness that maybe best fits in here seeing as there's no SMB3 thread.

  9. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    What are the games as big as MK8 and Smash Bros. last year? What's the big Christmas game? Zelda was supposed to be. Zelda helped make E3 great last year and was a no show this year. So that's another promise broken. I'll be happy with Xenoblade Chronicles X but many won't as it's a niche title. Nintendo seem as interested in selling amiibo as they are making games. Money is money to them. There was 18 new amiibo shown at E3.

  13. I don't get why people want an amiibo game. They don't add anything, if you're a kid, the interaction could be fun. How can people not see them for what they are? Trojan horses. People have spent hundreds of £'s on them. I would prefer games instead. If given the choice would you rather 3 Splatoon amiibo sitting on a shelf or spend that money on the game itself? Something you can play, you know a video game, what this whole hobby is about? I may well wait to see NX for myself, not believe what Nintendo say but what the gaming sites have to say. If Nintendo fail to reveal the specs for a 3rd generation in a row prior to launch, there's probably trouble on the horizon.
  14. FAST:Racing Neo

    Shin’en Say They Personally Pushed The Wii U To The Limits With Fast Racing NEO We had our first look at Fast Racing NEO earlier this week and it does indeed look glorious. The game runs at a buttery smooth 60fps and displays in 720p. If you saw the footage of the game during E3 then you’ll know that its also extremely fast. Shin’en’s Manfred Linzner believes that they personally pushed the Wii U to its limits with Fast Racing NEO and they’re extremely pleased with the results. “When starting with the game we had a vision. We wanted to develop the most exciting futuristic racing game on the market. We decided from the beginning it will be 60fps, anything else was not an option for a game that fast. So we knew all GPU and CPU stuff must fit into 16 milliseconds, which isn’t a lot, especially when most games you get compared with are running on consoles with higher specs and with 30fps. We knew from the beginning we can’t develop this vision with techniques everyone else does use. We would need to find different ways to achieve our vision. This was a big motivation because we like working on limits and pushing boundaries.” “We started experimenting for a year. After a short time we had a working prototype but it ran only at around 15 fps when we enabled all the cool stuff and effects you now see in the game. We had 8k Softshadows, a complete HDR pipeline, physical based rendering, SSAO, more than 10,000 drawcalls, High Quality Motionblur, High Quality Godrays, Cinematic Color Grading, Volumetric lighting and so on. It looked really pretty but was near unplayable.” “We then needed the rest of the year to find fast enough solutions to handle all these effects or to find new solutions that give the same results. Often we used tricks from the past that are pretty complicated to implement but that deliver the same effect with a fraction of the costs. To make long story short: In the end we were pretty happy seeing finally the game reaching 60fps. When finally playing at 60fps with all bells and whistles for the first time we knew we did the best work in our career. I don’t say anyone else can’t go even further on Wii U, but personally we reached our limits.” http://mynintendonews.com/2015/06/20/shinen-say-they-personally-pushed-the-wii-u-to-the-limits-with-fast-racing-neo/
  15. Splatoon

    I swear bloody blue murder at times. Which is nothing new.
  16. Splatoon

    I can't. I don't have Skype setup and my Wii U is way to far away from my desktop.
  17. Splatoon

    I haven't bought a weapon mainly because I don't want to give up the Bubbler.
  18. Star Fox Zero

    Star Fox Zero: Corneria Graphics Head-to-Head Comparison (3DS vs. Wii U)
  19. Splatoon

    Yep, they were good games. Voice chat would make it better. @Cube is definitely the best. If I get some more practise in and some higher level equipment, I might be nearly as good. I can see now what ye were talking about with those who score 200 points. They really do mess it up and there was one game where someone scored 137. I haven't bought a single weapon still yet and that level with the moving palette trucks is made for rollers. Edit: Port Mackerel.
  20. F#ck amiibo!!! They have nothing to do with games.
  21. There'll be 2 devices. Nintendo aren't going to put all their eggs in one basket. Yes they'll work on the same OS and we'll get indie games and VC games ported easily between the 2 with the same save files shared on both rather than this generation with games like Mario vs Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars. We won't get games that will be dumbed down from the NX to play on the portable. That would be too difficult and expensive to do I think. The NX may have a standard controller and the portable can be used as a controller on it to allow for games and developers who want to use dual screens. The 2 devices will link up more than they ever have before. Possibly allowing some aspects of the NX games to be played when out and about on the portable, e.g. designing a house in Animal Crossing and sending back data to the NX received from Spotpass. Maybe a Spotpass app for your smart phone too.
  22. Splatoon

    Yeah, a lot of things would be good. It's too bare boned with annoying programming like you can't back out of a lobby once you've clicked continue, can't change weapons or controls on the fly and the Calamari girls telling you what stages are available each time you load up. I'm not a fan of the controls either. Give me a Wii remote and nunchuk any day of the week.
  23. Splatoon

    They stack yes. But the effect is reduced for each additional ability. I don't know if you know but the main ability is locked and each secondary unlocked ability is weaker. So everyone who gets the same item of equipment has the same ability but the others are random.
  24. Splatoon

    Keep getting this over and over on equipment. Enough already.
  25. More than anything, I want amiibo to die. I want them to have nothing to do with the NX.
