With news like these, Wii U's storage does not feel as small anymore. Mario 3D World is less than 2GB anyway.

But if this is for physical, what is the benefit? You are not saving any space in your HD. Guess there is only sale/trade/lending value.



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is...:


That is why I said "exclusives mentioned here" as in this particular article. I never count Knack after it was panned by the critics. Resogun is a great game, though.

I agree with you that the PS4 is not there yet, but it is getting there. I guess I am still very happy with my old phat :)



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Why PS4's Christmas Offering Is...:

While the line up is great if you already have a PS4, it does nothing for people who want to upgrade from a PS3 to a PS4. Of all the games mentioned here only DriveClub and Infamous are exclusive to the new system.

For Xbox One is not too different either.



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weeke...:

Yesterday I finished Steamworld Dig, great game overall. Today I was playing some Pokémon X and Guacamelee on Wii U. Possibly I will continue with Armillo and unlock my last MK8 character, which happened to be Pink Gold Peach.



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Are Publishers Taking Pre-Order...:

I hate preorder bonuses, first for the reason @FullbringIchigo mentions, and also because they try to force you to buy a game you may not care about. I would rather wait for reviews to see if a game is worth it.

A friend of mine wanted Lightning Returns. I told him to wait a couple of months so the game gets cheaper (as the other two FFXIII) but he wanted the Cloud outfit that was only available in preorder. For me a simple thing like that is not worth the extra cash.



sinalefa commented on Microsoft's Messaging Mishaps Prompted PS4 Bos...:

I found that moment sad for the whole industry. When Tretton said "you will be able to do the same that you have been doing" which should be taken for granted, but it is met with cheers as if it was a new, great thing?

And if Microsoft would have gotten away with it, Sony would have probably adopted it as well. Not necessarily day 1, but look at their paid online this gen when it was free with PS3. Good thing neither company proceeded, thanks to all the disgruntled customers voting with their wallets.



sinalefa commented on Sony's Not Worried About PS4's Software Lineup...:


"I just cant care about X1."

In my case Scalebound could sell me on a One, since I love Kamiya's games, as I think you know, and MS is funding that one. The other is access to IPs that I have never touched like Halo (all games in a single disc sounds sweet) and Forza. On Sony's camp only Uncharted 4, while things like the Order are a maybe at this point.

But based on exclusive games I care about, for the third year in a row I would choose Wii U as my holiday console.



sinalefa commented on Blimey, Only Four in Ten PlayStation Games Act...:

Maybe if the majority of players weren't that interested in expensive graphics the numbers would be very different. And before everyone says anything in their own defense, I don't include regulars here, as we are the vocal minority.

Maybe that is why they don't want to make more AAA titles on Vita?



sinalefa commented on Yu Suzuki: I'm Ready to Create Shenmue III Sho...:

As long as this gets done, I could not care less about the console. I don't even know what else is he working on anyway.

And if you have 11 chapters planned, you better partner with Activision or Ubisoft and this will get done in less than 10 years ;)



sinalefa commented on EA Eagerly Anticipating PS4 and Xbox One's Chr...:


That is exactly what I am doing. Waiting for both new systems to get games, to decide which one I prefer. And maybe a price drop or a slim model, depending on how long I wait.

Even if the launch numbers were impressive, maybe customers are not upgrading as much as they would have liked, hence they are not able to leave PS360 owners behind, as we are a huge userbase. Still I don't care about any of EA's IPs.



sinalefa commented on Sony: There Are 'Many, Many' First-Party PS Vi...:

Yes, there will be Sony games for the Vita, but less than before, and their most important games will be the ones coming to PS4.

I hope that at least with smaller budgets they make interesting, innovative games. That, along with indies, could help the Vita, I think.



sinalefa commented on The PS4 Dev Team Were 'Dancing in The Aisles' ...:

That was at launch. Now both are priced the same, so games will do the talking. Right now the scales are tipped on MS' favor for me. But I want both systems to get more games before taking the plunge with any of them.



sinalefa commented on Soapbox: Was Dragon's Crown Just A Joke That N...:


I agree. The Elf is the example of a strong, not sexualized character and she gets ignored in the article? Ain't that sexist? :p

Anyway, the game is really enjoyable, and I loved the animation. As the violence in Madworld, it is so over the top it stops being shocking and enters comedy territory.



sinalefa commented on Now a Second Sony Exec Says That the Firm's No...:

That is very sad to hear, and again makes me glad that I did not pick up a Vita.

And a bit ironic that they are letting the Vita (life in latin) die, and let indies do the hard work. The powerful portable becomes a PS4 peripheral.



sinalefa commented on Talking Point: Should Sony Ditch E3 Stage Show...:

I don't watch MS/Sony conferences because they are a snoozefest, with Layden being as uninteresting as Tretton. While they try to act cool and serious, Nintendo shows games and even make fun of themselves to spice things up.

Nintendo's conference was better IMO because it was prerecorded, thus allowing things that were not possible any other way, skipping all PR crap and being shorter. There is no way you can make a 90 minute show and keep a good pace. And the Robot Chicken segments and Iwata/Reggie fighting were a goofy but welcome palate cleanser.

About the treehouse, not only Nintendo but NintendoLife made a much better job than Sony/Push Square. The treehouse live feed was in NL's front page, while much later I realized Sony had something similar because a commentor here told me (thanks @AeroZeppelin!), not someone from the staff.
