It's happening. ZombiU was no joke, the UK is already brain-dead, the virus is spreading. The Prepper warned us all but nobody listened. Nobody listened and it's too late. IT'S TOO LATE!
Capcom just released a demo of Resident Evil Revelations on Wii U (roughly 600mb) and I jumped on it. I'm a huge fan of the 3DS game, it was so good I think it should have been called Resident Evil 6. The thought of a more polished version of the game with Wii U features … Continue reading Resident Evil Revelations HD – Wii U Demo Impressions
ZombiU opens with uncertainty. Just what the hell are we getting into? Is the game good, bad, scary, ugly, beautiful? Music plays with a scattered melody as a man stands alone. Sweat drips from his face as the hopelessness of his situation sinks in, he's surrounded. He threatens to give the scene a 4 out … Continue reading ZombiU – The World Ends With U
It has been a few weeks since the WiiU launched, and I am loving it. Miiverse is amazing, ZombiU is amazing and New Super Mario Bros U is pretty close to topping Super Mario Bros. 3 is terms of being my favourite side-scrolling Mario game. While the game journalism side has already been torn apart … Continue reading “I like my new WiiU, but I won’t make games for it!”
Wii U has come out and has caused an interesting reaction with the gaming community. It's exploded onto the scene like a bird shitting on a park bench. Wii U isn't selling as well as Wii did at this very early stage, and after skeptical claims of "artificial shortages" people are now falling over themselves … Continue reading Wii U is bombing, and we’re OK with that
This is a quick post, because I'm playing the shit out of my Wii U right now and don't have any spare energy to write. There's an overwhelming amount of fun stuff to do and Nano Assault Neo blew half my face off. Anyway, paid journalists were also overwhelmed and fucked up a lot of … Continue reading Wii U – Launch Misconceptions
The Wii Remote & Nunchuk was last generation's innovation in violence - still strong today, still better than the competition. This was the method of controlling the last true console Resident Evil experience the world would know: The Umbrella Chronicles. For the previous console cycle, there's a seldom-stated lesson Capcom briefly learned (see RE4:Wii) then … Continue reading Hey U – Give Me Real Controls
As we near the Wii U launch, we also near the launch of a surprisingly-original Ubisoft title in the form of ZombiU. It's a fresh take on the survival horror genre, and is more of a Resident Evil game than Resident Evil 6 is. The gist of the story is that John Dee, head magician … Continue reading ZombiU, or is it really GhostU?
Zombi U was the best game at the entire Expo. That concludes the Zombi U impressions, now let's take a closer look at the GamePad. It's a thing of beauty. Lift up your generic keyboard, close your eyes and pretend it's a controller; the Wii U pad is somehow lighter than that. I had concerns … Continue reading ZombiU – EB Expo Impressions
The EB Expo exploded into Sydney this weekend and I spent two days there playing as many games as I could and meeting lots of cool people. What is the EB Expo? Sorry, Pietriots does not supply tutorials. LET'S DANCE! No, stop dancing! First let's get one thing out of the way: I'm a bad … Continue reading EB Expo – Pietriots Style
Holy shit! This is the most excited I've ever been about a new game console - Nintendo blew my mind with their presentation and I loved every little thing. In fact, the little things were the best part. No catchy title here; I'm just going to run through my thoughts as I watched the conference, … Continue reading Thoughts – Wii U, E3, Community Reaction
