Nintendo has officially taken down the servers for Wii U shooter Devil's Third developed by Valhalla Game Studios.
Talk about a kick in the nutter butters
this game creator payed his idiocy to change the development for exclusive release on a dying hopeless console with the best way ....the game was generally good i liked it and was the closest thing to a hardcore Ninja Gaiden we could get on new consoles ....but literaly its creator was idiot as f..k to undermine his game (it was obviously downgraded for Wii u) and release it exclusively on a underpowered system for some cash,destroyed his name in a moment
Oh boo hoo. Someone didn't get a game to come to their system.
Believe me I know the feeling haha, just pushing out a similar statement many others make, just cause.
How did they ask for it? You know the company responsible for the engine used to make the OG game went under forcing Itagaki to scrap it and start over, right? Not to mention THQ, its original publisher, eventually withdrawing support before going under. As for it becoming a Wii U exclusive, Nintendo was the one willing to help Itagaki with the funding to finish making the game.
This is easily one of the stupidest investments I've ever seen any company ever make for an exclusive by a third party. I'm surprised you think the game is any good at all because I don't really believe the Wii U made this game bad, believe it was going to be bad regardless of where it was. The Wii U has a handful of really great games please do not blame the hardware for how crappy this game actually is. To my understanding when you create a game for a specific piece of Hardware your job is to adapt. So do not blame the hardware for why this game was horrible blame the developer for even downgrading the game in the first place as opposed to adapting to their situation. If you have to downgrade a game so significantly that it begins to affect the design and quality you're probably not supposed to be downgrading it in the first place to such a platform. I don't blame the platform in this respect I blame the developer because they chose to continue despite knowing the hardware differences. The regular Wii U exclusives don't have that problem because they were made to actually work on that platform...
@rjason- could be because it sounds to me like he basically likes the game but he's angry at the decision of it being exclusive somewhere else
I have not felt so selfish about a game before. I like many waited and waited patiently since this games release and out of no where Wii U exclusive. At the time i didn't have a Wii u and honestly i wanted it for ps3 but that never happened nor for 4. Anyway i honestly am glad this happened. Save for the innocent dev and people involved But i never wanted a game to fail so badly. Not to mention when i finally played it i think it sucks imho. I'm fine with exclusives but when a game's announced for your console or platform of choice then retracted they're asking for it.
he had no big name to start with.. this same guy did the same to DOA4 and Ninja Gaiden for 360 and in the end he talks s### about Team Ninja about NG3 and DOA5. He's a loser !
Ikr it looked interesting in the beginning before it became an nintendo exclusive. Don't know what happened when it became an exclusive.
Who knows , it was probably always going to be bad.
A lot happens when a game gets developed. A proof of concept demo or pre rendered video being received well doesn't necessarily equate to a game game being good.
I'm still looking to buy a copy at a reasonable price.
Depends on where you are located. Here in the UK you can pick this up for around £12.
I'm in California. I haven't seen a hard copy yet.
bro you wont they made so few copies they are mostly locked in cages atm in ppls collections waiting for the value to skyrocket.
Yeah that's what I figured.
i only say that because im in the same boat all physical copies near me were scooped up day one and ebay had a field day
and this is why we should not support nintendo any more
they done it with the wii and they killed the ds off for no reason.
total bad for business
Um. You can still get the main D3rd game, albeit digitally. The only thing they killed here was the online multiplayer.
Wait why are peopole acting like they care now? You didn't when it was released.
Cause it's Nintendo!
Yea, I haven't heard a peep or a whisper of this game since its debut.
its the principle of it, i don't like seeing any games shut down so quickly
I don't think Itagaki is crazy for making a Wii U exclusive.
I think he's crazy for pushing out a half baked, flawed as all hell, generic gore fest on the Wii U without making use of any of the console's specific features, and throwing his toys out of the pram when people criticise it.
you guys sure like to talk out of your arses, the reason why this is a nintendo exclusive it's because THQ went down, and nintendo was the only one willing to publish the game at that time, if it wasn't for them, devil's 3rd would have never seen the light of the day.
the game was also being originally development for the ps360, but all that changed when THQ went bankrupt
Not just that, but also when the company they got their game engine from for the OG PS360 version went out of business.
Itagaki might leave the industry after this. After the Tecmo scandal and the poor launch of Devils Third,I see little opportunity for him.
