Wii U owners unite for 3rd party support.

29d ago ... Alright so it’s no secret that 3rd party support generally sucks on Nintendo consoles. I’ve been on the defending side of both parties, but honestly the only party that can change the current situation and lack of proper 3rd party support is you, the gamer. So here’s a list of good no great 3rd party games that every Wii U should own if they’re a fan of the genre. Oh and remember, please “BUY N...

Nintendo's Biggest Issue with Third-Parties IS Nintendo

30d ago ... Yes, you read that correctly. As we all know — third-parties haven't played well with Nintendo, for quite a while now; over 20 years to be exact. Yes — it's been THAT long. Every generation, it seems to be the same old story; Nintendo announces new system with a myriad of the tried-&-true exclusives and only a handful of (decent) third-party titles to accompany them. While their handheld...

GAME BITS: WAR THUNDER

41d ago ... Like its Belarusian counterpart, War thunder is an MMO game that caters to WWII military buffs. This short article will center only to game battle instead of the game mode that War thunder offers. Unlike World of Tanks the game is more difficult to play because of its extreme leaning to realistic battle; in World of Tank you have the health point to see if your tank can still carry the br...

3 Platform Future: Nintendo N-Fusion!!!!!!!!

42d ago ... Nintendo will always be remembered as a pioneer in the gaming industry by standardizing the consoles, and creating some of the most well-known, successful, and established franchises in gaming. However, Nintendo's fortunes has taken a turn for the worse with the home console once again in risk of being a commercial failure. Nintendo's home console sales have been on the decline each console g...

The ongoing list of third party ports and their flaws:

53d ago ... Note: This list will be ongoing and will include games outside the Wii U, so if I miss any, feel free to contribute. It's time this parties were shown where they went wrong, where common sense in development failed to enter into their plans for some ports, and to silence apologists who use their console preferences to defend the flawed ports. So a bunch of people (read: apologists) have tak...

At a Glance: Image and Form

56d ago ... [b]Image & Form[/b] is a video game development studio made up of more than a dozen brilliant, childishly creative and mostly overaged people in Gothenburg, Sweden. They haven’t a clue what they’re going to be when they grow up, but they’ve been at this game development thing since 1997, and are more productive than ever. http://imageform.se/ [b]SteamWorld Dig[/b] is a platform mining adv...

Why Hironobu Sakaguchi making JRPG for Mobile, not home console.

80d ago ... Hironobu Sakaguchi, Why Mobile ? HS: [in English] Ah, Kutaragi-san's architecture...seven DSPs and a low-powered CPU. I don't like the PS3's architecture. [in Japanese] First off, with Sony, programmers want to do well and want to create good software, but Kutaragi-san makes the final call and [designs] the [hardware and software] environment himself. So that's been really challenging....

In-Engine Vs Gameplay

86d ago ... Since E3 came and went, a lot of crazy buzz has been thrown about with varying degrees of awesome. Microsoft has proven that the Xbox One has a fighting chance with great looking upcoming games, Wii U not only showed its continued relevance but arguably won the entire show and Sony had a megaton of stuff to show, so much so that their conference was a massive two hours of announcements. But som...

Opinion: Nintendo Has it Backwards With Virtual Console.

88d ago ... I love the Virtual Console. It may not have a perfect selection, and I have to wonder why Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, and Milon's Secret Castle are available for download on all current Nintendo devices, despite the AVGN ripping into them both, but it's still a great service for enabling a new generation of gamers to play the classics. Nintendo even has a handheld Virtual Console now, wh...

Why the Wii U Should be the Wii 2

88d ago ... "What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet" - Juilet Cappelletti Romeo and Juilet Before any Wii fans protest to the notion that the Wii U should be NAMED the Wii 2, that is neither the thrust nor the theme of this article, I hope you all hang in there to get what this article is all about. The Wii U possesses the moniker of it's predecessor,...

Do Better Graphics Make a Better Game? (Round 1! Sonic 3 & Knuckles vs. Sonic Adventure)

90d ago ... Let me get this out of the way right now: I am pro Sonic. Ever since I was old enough to play games I always though Sonic was so much better than Mario. In fact, the only reason I owned a SNES was to play Final Fantasy VI, otherwise it was Sega all the way. I have played nearly all the games (up until the Wii exclusives, but I did play Generations) so I hope that gives me the right to lay out t...

I want an Xbox One, but I'm not getting one.

102d ago ... So I've been reading up on the comments for Microsofts E3 press conference, I can't exactly agree or disagree for any of them. I liked just about every game I saw. Each and every one of them looked exciting. Yet with every good game comes a buttload of ridiculous controversy. Just look at Watch Dogs. Here's a couple of post I saw. Keep in mind that they are NOT word for word. My memory isn'...

E3 Is Almost Here

103d ago ... E3 is right around the corner and here I am stuck once again in my cycle of life. Earn money, take care of kid, and hang out with the family. But I almost forget. I have to spend some time with the Playstation 4, but that will be difficult considering there are no compelling games to play. Oh well back to collecting dust I suppose. In all seriousness my Playstation 3 and Wii U have been gett...

More Wii U words

106d ago ... So, there are lots of things wrong with the Wii U. Marketing has been confusing, the games have come slowly, third party support is gone, the asking price is too high and the tech is too old. Nintendo doesn't have a problem that people need to insightfully boil things down to; they have a large, unlabeled umbrella full of issues collected like so many undesirable Pokemon. That's the lens the...

Polygon's Nintendo Nightmare

107d ago ... Let me start off by saying that Mr. Kuchera's views are probably not representative of the entirety of Polygon. I always find that gamers tend to associate one person's review or statement with the entirity of the site/company, and this isn't usually the case. That said, I find his statements to be an additional footnote to the laughable incompetency that Polygon trails. The article in quest...

Why I’d like to see Nintendo become a third party only games maker in terms of TV consoles

125d ago ... First of all, Nintendo’s position as maker of handheld machines has been relatively stable. My post is not in reference to handheld buyers at all. My post is to argue that Nintendo need no longer spend money on making the major TV consoles. The history of Nintendo as a major console maker (NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, WiiU) has, original Wii aside, been one of diminishing sales. The NES...

Mario Kart 8 Officially Justifies the Wii U's Graphical Prowess

131d ago ... Say what you want about the Wii U. Whine and complain as much as you'd like about how the system isn't at the same 'power-level' as the PS4 or XBOX One. One thing is for sure, though: Mario Kart 8 is one damn-fine looking game. It's been a little less than a year from since the public got a chance to first see the title in action. It's been a little over a year from since Nintendo showed...
