I just finished watching The Killing Season 4. I went back and read your write-ups. Some of the best articles I've read on any site in a long long time. I don't know how you summarized all the fragmented thoughts I had while watching through the season, but you seemed to have figured out how to express them all.

@themightyme @Menashe I started watching Utopia because you said I'd adore it. Guess what? After two episodes I can safely say, I adore it! Good call.

@ValeFalkren @Menashe But they're not offering the Club Nintendo reward for the version on the Wii U eshop. Or am I missing something? To me it looks like it says it's a Wii download.

Not impressed. I would get Super Punch Out if it was on the Wii U. I hate going through the Wii Menu. Takes too long.

@ValeFalkren Care to explain? How can you tell from this article what the state of the traffic is? Also, the site is only two months old, so it definitely doesn't get the same type of traffic as Nintendo Enthusiast. But it's doing pretty well for itself considering its age. Around 10,000 users each month so far. Nintendo Enthusiast has closer to 300,000 users each month, but hey, it's a start.


Also, what do you mean that you can't login to the site? Which site?

@juegosmajicos The doctor always has a certain quirkiness. That staple never changes. Whether one likes that quality or not depends on the person you're speaking to and often changes over time. However, many people dismiss Doctor Who initially because of its quirkiness and don't stick with it long enough to grasp the deeper complexities of its universe and overarching storyline. It has a lot more depth to it than you'll initially see. Give the characters time to peel off their layers and give the season time to develop a central conflict. The quirkiness and silliness oftentimes becomes more attractive to you as you start to grasp the overall depth of the series. So, I'd say, watch enough of the show and you'll be giving it the opportunity to win you over.

@Yanni Fyssas Michael is the toughest reviewer on the site. We usually save him just for Nintendo first-party games but we gave him a crack at Armillo. He reviewed it with the same rigor he would apply to a review of a Nintendo game. A 7.5 from Michael is equivalent to an 8.5 from most other reviewers on the site.

Having been at E3 this year, I can agree with you from the showfloor. Treehouse added a lot for their viewers at home. But the Smash Invitational was such an unbelievable experience in person. The rest of E3 was just walking around, testing out games. The Smash Invitational, was a roaring crowd, cheering on your favorite Nintendo characters and icons. Nintendo did SO much right this E3.

@DonZaloog I'm more interested in Splatoon specifically because it's not just another Call of Duty. The art style is more vibrant and colorful, and they've switched up the typical FPS formula with the whole paint strategy. I love when Nintendo decides to take on a traditional genre with their own style- look what happened when Nintendo took on the fighter genre with Smash Bros!

@Aiddon Definitely true. You never want to put all your eggs in one basket as a company. Then again, companies that focus on a niche often do well.

The Wii U stretch goal has been announced as $75,00 which is explained at detail by Brian, citing “the advanced particle systems and shader effects were the primary issue that we needed to evaluate before making this announcement”. Fortunately after tinkering around with the Wii U dev kits “we discovered and tested that these particles will run on Wii U!”

In one of their updates they said that the particles weren't running on Wii U. I guess a deeper look showed them they were wrong.

@matthewwesley85  I think they probably even modeled themselves after Wayforward's Shantae campaign. They asked for 800k or so and got it. Renegade Kid is similarly esteemed in the indie community and expected to be able to get 500k for a multi-platform FPS.

For me it all comes down the brown color palette in the game. It's just too brown to get me interested in its atmosphere. Brown is the worst color scheme for a video game in my books.
