  1. Star Fox Zero

    It can be a really good game if they polish the graphics and gameplay. It feels very sketchy now. Hopefully delayed to Spring 2016 after E3 reactions.
  2. Wii U General Discussion

    Surprised how well 2013 turned out while compiling the list, but yeah, one has to look behind the numbers: Luigi U is an expansion pack, Wii Fit U and Wii Party U are cheap to make successors and Wind Waker is a remake. Only Pikmin 3 and Mario 3D World required significant development resources over several years.

  4. Wii U General Discussion

    Even if the absolute worst case happens and it only has one year left (realistically it has 3-4 years) it will still get Mario 3D World, Smash Bros. 4, Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, DKCR2 and X added to its library. Maybe it will end up like Dreamcast. Very short lifetime, but still lots of great games.
  5. Mario Kart 8

  6. Nintendo development list

    Rare had an enormous output. They released 11 N64 games and 7 GBC games in less than 5 years. Retro has released 1 game over the past 5 years. Of course games had lot lower production values back then...
  7. [Spoiler-Free] Zelda: Skyward Sword

    First review in. 98% in ONM: link
  8. 3DS Console Discussion

    £150 3DS + Super Mario 3D = buy!
  9. First next-gen game confirmed. From Eurogamer:
  10. I think it's ridiculous that people are writing Wii's obituary before Zelda: Skyward Sword, The Last Story, Xenoblade etc. have been released. With the Wii successor not launching until mid-2012 at the earliest, I'm sure Nintendo has one or two games up their sleeve at E3 as well. With outdated graphics and online being the big complaints in its present, Wii will surely be better regarded in retrospect 5-10 years from now.
  11. The Conduit 2

    7.5 from IGN. Reads much more positive than GI's: "Conduit 2 is a worthy addition to the Wii library, and it’s worth playing for its visuals alone. The fact that gameplay and control operate as well as they do speaks volumes for the talent at High Voltage Software. The problem with Conduit 2 is that it never breaks away from doing what other first-person shooting games have done. It’s not telling the most original story, the action doesn’t feature much diversity, and you’re not going to care about the characters. But if you want action, and you want a strong multiplayer title to fire up and explore, you’ve got a winner here." Graphics: 9.0
  12. The Conduit 2

    "If you’re an FPS-loving Wii owner that doesn’t care about single-player, or someone who adored the original Conduit, you may be able to squeeze some entertainment out of this game. Everyone else should pass." 6/10 GameInformer
  13. Wii General Discussion

    I think Wii's single biggest design mistake is only 512 MB internal storage. This crucially limits both updates for the OS itself and the games as well as forced Nintendo to do a 40 MB limit on WiiWare (the iPhone App limit is 2 GB). Also demos are not doable with so little free storage. I also believe Nintendo would have sold more VC games if you could have all the games on the machine itself and not being forced to delete them/copy them to SD cards.
  14. Xenoblade Comes To Europe!!!!

    It was briefly mentioned back in 2008, but we haven't heard a word from it since.
