Hero-of-Time

Wii U General Discussion

Recommended Posts

I suspect I may invest in Switch at Christmas thanks to the Super Mario Odyssey so that may be the time I eventually get to play Breath of the Wild too. That's fine for me as I intend to clear Twilight Princess HD and Majora's Mask 3D in that time :smile:

 

How are you finding Xenoblade Chronicles X now, @Hero\-of\-Time? I picked it up earlier this week because of circumstances that meant it made sense to but I've never been particularly interested in playing it. I'll certainly try it out now that it's there but I know I can sell if for a considerable profit if need be :grin:

 

The only other game I need to get to in my Wii U collection is Starfox Guard, a game I haven't unsealed yet :red:

I'm not that far into it. I've only played about 4-5 hours and most of that has just been me grinding. :D

 

I've been playing most of it on the GamePad while watching the footy and it's certainly a strain on the eyes. You can hardly make out the menus and stats due to text size and screen resolution.

 

The character designs still annoy the hell out of me. They look so weird/garbage but I did manage to create a half decent, normal looking guy.

 

The story hasnt grabbed me yet, nor have the characters. With Xenoblade I was quite hooked from the start and there was a lot of intrigue there. With this I haven't found the story that interesting and as such have been avoiding anything story related and just spent the time randomly running around getting into fights.

 

It's still early but whether I stick at it is another matter. At least I got further than I did last time.

I never did go back to Xenoblade Chronicles X. As I said at the time, the entire game had a very PS2 feel to me which I was finding hard to get past. I doubt I'll have time to go back to it now with the other Wii U games I want to play and the great few months we have coming up on the other consoles.

A problem I have with it at the moment is that I'm playing this having played Final Fantasy XV. The combat just feels so slow and boring compared to FFs more action styled setup.

 

There's also loads that hasn't been explained to me. I had to keep googling stuff on my phone to find out what was what. :D

The end is near: Reggie

 

“From a first-party standpoint, there's no new development coming after the launch of the legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” he said. “We really are at the end of life for Wii U.”

Trying to compile Wii U videos that were aired just before its release to correspond with what we're likely to get before the Switches release.

 

Anyone know of anymore?

I swear the Wii U has ceased production about 5 times in the last few months now :p

To be fair, with the switch coming out in a few weeks, and Wii U sales being as sky high as they are... this is a lot more credible. Even the last 4 times were credible :P

Probably they have enough to last the year, I imagine Wii U sales must have dived off a (admittedly not very tall) cliff after the March 3rd date was announced for the Switch....

Ugh, this news is worse than Sadness, Donkey Kong Racing and the Tab Cube put together.

His face.. so full of joy and happiness! I think they should release it as is for Wii U owners, free of charge.

I wish I could sell my Wii U. Damn 3D World and WWHD making me want to keep it.

Aren't you getting Zelda for it?

 

Don't tell me you are buying a switch?! :nono:

I tried playing 3D World the other week and struggled to get very far at all. Can't put my finger on what exactly was the problem but it didn't seem to hold up at all for me.

I think I'll be trading my WiiU and 3DS in and getting Switch. It'll work out so I'd be picking it up with Zelda for about £20... I might as well, right..? ::shrug:

I guess, if you don't use your 3DS much.

Wii U got a firmware update today, seems all they added was some text pointing to the closure of Miiverse. It might still not happen for a while yet but it seems too early. This will also mean that games will lose some functionality (Winder Waker, Smash).

If it happens any time soon I'll be a bit pissed and it will put me off Switch even more.

As bullshit as Wii going offline was, at least they had a legitimate reason. It just adds fuel to the fire that you can't trust any online component Nintendo offers because it could disappear in an instant.

5.5.4 obviously wasn't stable enough so they skipped right over it. Any excuse to crack this out though and remember the good old days...
