Freedom Planet delayed.

 

As luck would have it, a serious bug in the Wii U version of Freedom Planet was found today that causes Wii U consoles to freeze, requiring a hard reset of the system. This bug only occurs in retail versions of the console, so neither Nintendo nor MP2 experienced the issue and we were only made aware of it by members of the press who tried the game over the past couple days.

 

We cannot allow the game to launch in a state that would potentially cause damage to Wii U consoles or make players think there is something wrong with their console, so we are delaying again until the issue is fixed. No one is more disappointed at this than me, but we have to do what we have to do.

 

Thank you for your patience and we will continue to update you on the status of our Wii U release.

Freedom Planet delayed.

 

Noooooooooooooooooo...ooo..oo.o... :(

 

But at least they are doing the right thing by delaying it, game looks phenomenal just from the demo so it will be glorious when it's finally released. :)

I've got Darksiders 2, but I am probably going to play Darksiders on PC and then play the second part on Wii U.

Freedom Plant delayed....AGAIN!

 

We received some sad news today: Our patch for the Wii U version of Freedom Planet didn't fix all of the freezing issues. In light of this, we are cancelling our launch for the time being. We're only going to announce a release date after the game is fixed and free of all issues not present in the PC version.

 

I understand that some fans out there were already upset at the last delay and that further delays would be the last straw, and to them I can only say that I'm sorry. I do not intend to deliver anything less than a 100% faithful and clean port, regardless of how long it takes.

 

If any of our new Wii U fans are interested in playing the PC/Mac/Linux version to tide them over, we'll keep you updated on any sales or bundles we may be involved with in the future. We also have several extra announcements coming later this month including for our planned character DLC, so stay tuned.

 

We're sorry again and thank you for your patience!

I'm playing The Bridge now for a review. It's quite good - it's a bit short but the puzzles are excellent and the art style is nice. The sound is a bit boring but it still fits the gameplay rather well. If anyone needs a good puzzle game this is definitely a good choice. A bit expensive, though, about £5 would have been more appropriate.

From your perspective in that you seem to be mostly buying digital games due to the extortionate prices where you are on physical games - if I'm understanding your situation correctly - I would say that Darksiders II is almost certainly worth buying for £9.99 as it is a good game.

 

But go into it with the perspective that it will be a one-off enjoyable experience because sadly we won't be seeing any more games in the series as THQ went down the pan a while ago, I have both titles on the Xbox 360, otherwise I'd have considered this as well.

 

Also regarding Legend of Kay Anniversary, I have it, plan to review it but haven't unsealed it yet as I'm working on other reviews but I'll see about playing it within the next few weeks, by which time it will probably be cheaper anyway.

 

Hope this helps. : peace:

 

So, did you review Legend of Kay?

 

Btw. Darkseiders 2 is like a darker Zelda game. I like it :).

Not yet sadly, still working on other reviews.

 

I'm glad to hear you like Darksiders II though. :)

Sin & Punishment is not HD, isn't it?

 

Not the N64 version, but the Wii release entitled Sin & Punishment: Star Successor is also on the eShop (not HD either, but one hell of a game).

Who has picked up Runbow then?

 

Will be getting my first taste of this tomorrow at my friends house for some multiplayer action, before picking it up myself when I've finished the Gears of War campaign, very excited!

 

Not this coming week but the one after (from Sunday onwards) I'll have a week and a Wii U to myself so would be up for some online Runbow shenanigans if any one else is getting it :) in fact, do we have a Runbow thread?

Not sure. If not, why don't you thread it up and tell us all about Runbow and why you are so excited about it? : peace:

Hang on... Runbow is online?

 

Yes has an online mode where you can play with randoms or friends and do the levels that way.

 

 

I have to say, Runbow is absolutely brilliant fun. My friend compared it to Super Meat Boy (which I've never played) but this is exactly the sort of game Nintendo had in mind when saying that local multiplayer is still important.

 

I can imagine on your own it will be an intense platformer with some challenging and infuriating moments. In local multiplayer it is just an absolute blast! Haven't laughed so much playing a game for ages, just pure fun!

 

And the ability to either help or hinder each other is so simple yet so effective, it's brilliantly executed.

 

In my opinion, everyone should be seriously considering picking this up, just a great indie game. In fact, a great game full stop! :)

Yep. I also concur with these sentiments. Found the online a bit buggy, but when you actually play the game it has such a good one more go feeling.
