There is a recommended order but I think part of the fun is figuring it out on your own. It is a very strange order mind you, this game is structured differently than most, think of it as old castlevania with each level having sections like 1-2, 1-3. But you dont do the whole level and move on.

I just beat the 1st boss I guess? But even after you beat a boss it doesn't seem like the level ends...so I guess you just jump in and out of each level trying to find the easiest areas to do first?

The whole + thing is annoying anyway...its like a big stroke fest.

I just find it annoying that the people who plused his post, didn't read the article or cannot have agreed with Bear's post if they did read it, because his assumptions were completely wrong if you actually read the content at the link. They just plused it because they have a problem with Neogaf or a problem with me, either way it's just banal.

For the people with a problem with NeoGAF here's a fact: well known gaming websites that report news and generate stories do so off the back of what is posted on NeoGAF. When some forumer trawls up a patent or a confidential Gamestop email or devkit information, or translates some Japanese article from the original Kanji, other sites like IGN, MCV, CVG, Eurogamer etc report on it based on what is said at GAF. Yes the board can be filled with idiots but yes, it's also a great source of gaming news and the most popular and buzzing gaming forum in the world.

_Bear said:

Ok I'm letting it go, just got tired of the vapor, being paraded as news. He can post what he likes, I just felt I have the right to dispute it. It's not everything he post at all, it was %100 Wii U Stuff that is suspect and subjective.

So it's the Wii U stuff you have a bug for?

Look man, Nintendo has issued a million NDAs there has been no info for a year. Their NDAs are actively stopping people announcing games, for instance:

Treyarch boss Mark Lamia...


PressFire: Do you have a release date?


Lamia: November 13th


PressFire: That's around the same time as the Wii U launch, isn’t it?


Lamia: (smirks) It is... That’s what I hear, rumor-wise. I don’t think they’ve announced a launch date for the Wii U though?


PressFire: They said before christmas? But that overwatch mode, on the Wii U pad ...it seems kind of obvious?


Lamia: (laughs) Do you want a job in game design?


PressFire: (laughs) So is there a Wii U version coming?


Lamia: Ah! We’re not.. we’re only talking about the other platforms at this time.


PressFire: I know.


Lamia: But here’s what I can tell you: Treyarch has a long tradition of working on the Nintendo platforms. A long tradition.


PressFire: That’s right, you did the Wii versions of the Modern Warfare games.


Lamia: Uh huh, and the Wii versions of all our Call of Duty titles. And we made the GameCube version of Big Red One. And the Wii version of Spiderman Web of Shadows. We have a lot of experience on the Wii and on the Nintendo platforms. So yeah, we enjoy the Nintendo Wii. We enjoy working on that.

We're like chickens scratching around in the dirt for pieces of corn and personally I'd rather have scraps then go without dinner.

It's not unfounded info either BTW, you are wrong on all counts in your post it is not "Quoting someone who is quoting someone else on Neo Gaf is not a real source."

If you can read English then you can see after the clickthrough the actual website link with the quote from an actual Wii-soon-to-be-U developer. So it's not some random NeoDouche quoting some random NeoDouche.

Honestly I don't post news every week for over 4 years only to get shit because someone didn't read a link properly. That's just unimaginably stupid.

And for the record, Capcom Dev Yoshinori Ono said the exact same thing about Wii U 8 weeks ago about how it had many suprises.

NWR said:
When he was asked about Nintendo's new system, Ono mentioned that the system "offers so many big and unique possibilities that it is going to be hard to sell them on the box it will be sold on."


"What was shown at last year's E3 is not a reflection of the power the system will offer. We have been trying out the development kits and some of the new features will increase its possibilities. It isn't like the Kinect or anything like that, it is something different," Ono further stated.


He elaborates on that comment by saying that "I can't talk anymore regarding the subject because, if I do, Nintendo will send assassins to kill me! (laughs). But let's say that the Wii U is going to be a console that will count with some great and unique posibilities that it will be hard to sell them across magazines and other mediums."

So don't give me shit for no reason.

I have enough crap in my real life to come onto the internet and catch more shit. Yesterday a contractor knocked down an internal wall in the house without telling me, covering all my electrical equipment and clothes in plastering dust so please understand that I am in a foul mood at the moment. There is no wall between a bedroom and a bathroom/toilet at the moment. indecision

Very true. But, Activision is not ripping anyone off, people are willing participants in giving over their money. Until people start using my money to buy shit games, I can't get too excited WinkWink

You can make the argument that they are taking oxygen out of the room for slightly better FPS games though (arguably Singularity, BloodStorm etc...) and dumbing down the genre, and on that I can agree.  But I still don't begrudge someone for enjoying some COD.

Blame the FPS genre itself. If it wasn't so insular then this wouldn't happen.



Yeah, so this story happened after we talked:

Almost every first person shooter released today loses money, according to the co-founder of Free Radical, the now-defunct UK studio responsible for the TimeSplitters franchise.

Speaking in an interview with Edge, Steve Ellis argued that the only series that turn a profit these days is Activision's Call of Duty and EA's Battlefield.

"Nobody really buys any FPSes unless they're called Call Of Duty," he said.

"I guess Battlefield did okay, but aside from that pretty much every FPS loses money. I mean, [look at] Crysis 2: great game, but there's no way it came anywhere close to recouping its dev costs."

Ellis also touched on the fate of TimeSplitters 4, suggesting its failure to get picked up for release was a result of publishers being too risk averse.

"I spent the whole of 2008 going round talking to publishers trying to sign up TimeSplitters 4," he revealed.

"There just isn't the interest there in doing anything that tries to step away from the rules of the genre - no one wants to do something that's quirky and different, because it's too much of a risk. And a large part of that is the cost of doing it."

I like how THQ is all, "well yeah we'll be participating at E3 (eyes dart sideways), we just won't have a booth... yeah that's it... back room deals and all that".

Oh, so you'll be like the 16 year old GameStop employees who conned their way in with fake credentials?

I like THQ, I hope their fate turns around.

That sounds like a giant hotshot start-up dotcom I worked for back in 1999. Our CEO was going to be a keynote speaker at this massive tradeshow in Dallas, and we were going to have a giant booth on the floor, etc. But a few weeks before some bad financials came out and the company underwent a massive round of layoffs, and next thing you know the company was no longer hosting a booth at the show and our CEO while still doing the keynote said he had to spend the rest of the show doing backroom stuff and preparing for an impending IPO.

And 6 months later we were out of business... good luck THQ.
