  1. Shovel Knight

    Balls! I'd like the retail version but I'm not buying it twice. Haven't finished the game. Got to the last level and just stopped. Very familiar story.
  2. Splatoon

    Splatoon - Splatfest: Rock vs. Pop! (Wii U)
  3. Wii U VC

    I don't see any reason why they couldn't let us choose. If there's a 60 hz version let us in the UK and Ireland pick it if we want. It's not like the games are shipped all around Europe. They're games sitting on a server. And for games with multiple languages with 50 hz and 60 hz versions what's the reasoning for picking 50 hz? Edit: Australia and New Zealand should get the choice too.
  4. It was a second. The Wii did similar.
  5. MK8 would be even better with more powerful hardware. It would let the game run multiplayer better. It could allow one player on the TV and the other on the gamepad instead of the horrid split screen. What about multi gamepads? Never going to happen on the Wii U because despite Nintendo's lies it just wasn't very practical unless it was a stripped back game. Some say voicechat wasn't possible in race because the Wii U was already running at full tilt. Who knows? MK8 wouldn't need to look any better but the extra horsepower could help in other ways. Or just loading times could be improved. Yoshi's Woolly World I noticed takes 45 seconds to load just to press the A button. Splatoon is slow though I've never timed it. But it could be argued that with improved hardware that the graphics would also improve and so loading times would stay the same.
  6. Wii U General Discussion

    Forbes have conducted an interview with Reggie. Now normally I would paste and format the whole thing but it's quite long and it's Reggie the bull$h1tter so no thanks. What's Next For Nintendo? Reggie Fils-Aime Talks Games, Amiibo, VR and Mobile http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidewalt/2015/06/29/nintendo-reggie-fils-aime-e3/ There was one comment I was interested in that most supports the theory that the NX is a follow-up console. Let me find it now. Here it is.
  7. NINTENDO @ E3: Let the Hype juices flow

    A Visit To Jim Henson Studios with Mr. Miyamoto
  8. Metroid Prime: Federation Force (3DS)

  9. amiibo (NFC)

    New updated fan-made amiibo compatibility chart.
  10. Yoshi's Woolly World (June 26th)

    I'm taking my time, really chilled, haven't played much though. Still on World 1, 100% on everything so far. If it weren't for the collectathon I'd say you'd breeze through it in no time at all and if I did that I may not come back later to scour for say a rogue stamp. I don't know, maybe I would. I know with say Splatoon the single player campaign is retired to the annuls of history and I'll never play that again.
  11. Terraria

  12. Let's talk about this place.

    Which category do I fall in? I've stayed out of this conversation. I'm not gonna rake over old coals, there's no need for me, at least that's how I feel and I'm not going to fuel the fire. I've made 2 comments in here, both lighthearted humour. One a photo of BillyBobJimBob and the other about Splatfest having started early in here. Oh actually there was a 3rd comment asking if Shorty could find out who BillyBobJimBob is.
  13. You won't have to pay for a game twice and you can use the same save file as on the handheld. Riveting stuff. There's nothing stopping them from doing that now on the Wii U and 3DS. The only real benefit would be easier porting of games. That's not worth buying new machines for. There's far more important things to do. Are they going to have the same stance on voice chat? That's not a technical issue. It's a company policy.
  14. Star Fox Zero

  15. Wii U eShop Thread

  16. Splatoon

    That Spyke must have some massive drug habit to feed. You'd think with the astronomical prices he charges for gear he'd at least be able to get off the streets. "Hey man! D'you wanna buy some slugs? I got the best weed minus seas."
  17. I agree. I don't want a weak Nintendo console for the 3rd time in a row either. Create another weak console just for the benefit of cross platform play? It would be a massive failure.
  18. It wouldn't. They need games like FIFA, COD's and all the various AAA titles to help give it the lifeblood to thrive. Nintendo on their own can't work. They've already proven that. Was the rumour about what Retro Studios are working on not posted? Or what the NX may be? I thought it was. Maybe I was reading it elsewhere. I'll post it in a second.(Nevermind, I see it now.) If that rumour were true for their next console, it would be disastrous and wouldn't make sense.
  19. Splatoon

    I'm sick of seeing those annoying Squid girls every 4 hours or whenever I load up the game. The way he talked in the interview, implies that it will switch to a 3 stage rotation. The game is full of little annoyances like the not being able to back out of a match, changing weapons without backing out, being screwed if a player drops out, not knowing the mathematical stats of choosing equipment and stacking, playing the same stage 5 times in a row. All things that could be fixed with a patch.
  20. Stars Catalogue/Updates

    Not using my points on that. Maybe for someone who loves lamp. I have enough for 7,500 maybe 8,000. Haven't added them all up, but I want to use them on something truly special. Club Nintendo officially ends for the Yanks tomorrow. What's the message? While one light is extinguished, another one lights the way?
  21. Yoshi's Woolly World placed at number 4 on the Individual Charts in the UK Top 40. Batman: Arkham Knight was number 1 & 2 for both PS4 & XB1 respectively. LEGO Jurassic World was number 3 for the XB360. I'll post the images shortly. Splatoon is down to number 13. Individual Formats All Formats Wii U 3DS I was looking for the Wii U version of LEGO Jurassic World in the charts. I see it doesn't come out until next month. What can you say at this point? Probably should be grateful there is even a Wii U version coming.

  24. Wii U VC

    Yep, all 3. They should learn to space VC games better though as some weeks we have nothing.
