Maybe one day. Have others played King of Swing? I tried the game but didn't really "get it" and never bothered to give it a second shot. Is this release something we should be excited about? Not sure I care about Tilt and Tumble… but I’ve always wanted to try WarioWare Twisted. Maybe one day.

Have others played King of Swing? I tried the game but didn’t really “get it” and never bothered to give it a second shot. Is this release something we should be excited about?

Comment on Review: Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley by haruhi4 http://www.nintendojo.com/reviews/review-harvest-moon-the-lost-valley#comment-24397 haruhi4 Fri, 21 Nov 2014 11:15:37 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?post_type=reviews&p=133690#comment-24397 i bought this game. I though it was going to be a great harvest moon. I was wrong. I need a walkthrough to play it. The goals(to restore the seasons) are not intuitive, there is no village and no "give item to character to raise friendship". One of the WORST entries of the series. I even contacted the technical support to know how to advance on the game and they don´t have a walkthrough, they only have this incomplete walkthrough: http://fogu.com/hm12/walkthrough/index.php i bought this game.

Comment on DK: King of Swing Rated For Wii U By ESRB by Robert Marrujo http://www.nintendojo.com/news/dk-king-of-swing-rated-for-wii-u-by-esrb#comment-24388 Robert Marrujo Fri, 21 Nov 2014 04:06:08 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=133704#comment-24388 Sadly, no; the controls were mainly based around using the two shoulder buttons. I hear ya, though, no excuse for Tilt to not be on Wii U (or 3DS, for that matter). Sadly, no; the controls were mainly based around using the two shoulder buttons.

Comment on Watch Dogs Receives First Wii U Screens by ejamer http://www.nintendojo.com/news/watch-dogs-receives-first-wii-u-screens#comment-24374 ejamer Thu, 20 Nov 2014 16:23:44 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=133662#comment-24374 Despite my negative comments about how the release was handled, I expect that Watch Dogs will be a good game and will fill a niche on Wii U that doesn't have a lot of competition. Like you, I am glad it's getting released on Wii U and do plan on buying - just not at full price.

It's a game that's always interested me, and I don't have another platform to play it on. On the other hand, yes, Ubisoft's handling of the game, overall, just baffles me, to put it mildly. Basically it feels like they have a 'don't care' attitude of the game, and of course that carries over to their support of the Wii U in recent times. And to further add worry to the quality of the game, I see videos like this that show some of the graphics glitches that I hope are not a common occurrence: http://youtu.be/sXBHOqyJLQU On the one hand, I am grateful that this game did release on the Wii U, finally.

Watch Dogs reviews weren't stellar on any platform. Now the Wii U release is coming out months late, at full price, with no marketing, and is going head-to-head against Smash Bros (along with other holiday releases for various platforms). Despite the delay, the Wii U release apparently contains no meaningful additional content, no existing DLC added on disc to make up for the lengthy delay, and will never get the well-received Bad Blood DLC pack. Seriously, what kind of sales expectations should be taken from that scenario? I'll keep my eyes open and will consider buying once Watch Dogs hits a sub-$20 price point. My guess is that it won't even take that long. I don’t know how Ubisoft (or anyone, really) could expect strong sales for this game though.

Sad to say Ubisoft has announced this is their last real game on the Wii U. I'm hoping they change their mind if Watchdog sales are good. Unfortunately, with SSB coming out this weekend, the outlook doesn't seem bright. Better late than never. Sad to say Ubisoft has announced this is their last real game on the Wii U.

Comment on New Details Emerge Regarding Majora’s Mask 3D by penduin http://www.nintendojo.com/news/new-details-emerge-regarding-majoras-mask-3d#comment-24285 penduin Tue, 18 Nov 2014 06:10:14 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=133598#comment-24285 After the masterful job they did with OoT3D, I have nothing but confidence we'll get the ultimate version of Majora's Mask too. Fishing, a revamped boss and some more story details? Yes yes and yes please! I remember talk of how the drag-n-drop inventory wasn't done in Oot3D due to the 30fps framerate but worked perfectly at 60 for Link Between Worlds. Dare I dream of a stereoscopic, silky-smooth 60fps Majora's Mask? As for New 3DS enhancement, I'm a little stumped. Amiibo? Wind Waker-style camera? A special edition console for the US as an apology for releasing the thing so unforgivably late? :^) Probably just extra assignable buttons, but a guy can dream...
