Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze Difficulty

Started by Abel2Disable. Last reply by V D Jun 7. 6 Replies

I'm considering getting Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. It looks fun, but I hear (from reviews) that it's very hard. I'm concerned that it might be too hard. I don't want to be frustrated, I…Continue

PS4 or Xbox One? Neither... I'll take a Wii U

This holiday season the big question for gamers is, PS4 or Xbox One? For me the answer was PS4. Then the two games I planned to pickup this year for PS4 got pushed to 2014, Infamous Second Son and…Continue

Any Axeheads in Japan play Captain Toad Treasure Tracker?

Comment by Jason Rodriguez on July 22, 2014 at 12:44pm

@LordX Both are good choices, but I went with getting New Super Mario Brothers U. Pikmin 3 is more RTS, and that doesn't interest me. If you haven't played a 2D Mario in a while, and do not want to wait for Mario Maker, its a good choice. If you want an RTS, go with Pikmin 3.

Going to be picking up Mario Kart 8 in the next day or two. What free game should I get between New Super Mario Brothers U and Pikimin 3? (I got Wind Waker with my system and have no interest in Wii Party U)

If you have a Wii U Deluxe model don't forget that you are entered into the Deluxe Digital Promotion. It accumulates points from digital purchases in order to give you $5  credit per 500 point milestones. Spend $1 you get 10 pts spend $59.99  and you get 599 pts. 

I had forgotten about it and found I had $35 bucks worth of credit stored up. It ends December 2014 and you have until March 2015 to redeem all your credit.

More info on the Nintendo DDP page

Abel2Disable Sorry for such a late reply  on Rayman Legends. If it's solo play only your good on either the Vita or WiiU versions. They both integrate the touch functionality that is lacking on the other consoles. The content is the same single player wise, the only difference is having one at home the other on the go.

If you see yourself playing MP the WiiU version is the one to get. As it was the primary console the game was built for it takes the best advantage of the touch/dual screen functions.

Just bought "the family" a Wii U and so far it's been a big hit with the wife and kid. So far only have NintendoLand and Wind Waker as far as games go, but my favorite thing so far has been that adorable "Wii -> Wii U transfer" animation. Watching that made me want to give somebody a hug.

I'm thinking of getting Rayman Legends on the Wii U. I'd be playing it mostly single player. Anyone with the game have opinions on how it plays on Wii U? My other option is getting it on the Vita.

Yes, if they see we're waiting it will change their behavior 0%
No, buying the game a week later is still buying the game. If they get our money, they'll keep screwing us0%
I think it can help with broken games and questionable pre-release reviews but not the larger industry problems we face0%

The Axe Factor 181: A Fat Guy Named No Man's Sky

Rubber bullets cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we lose our minds over the latest media from Batman: Arkham Knight, discuss one listener's suggestion that we renounce pre-orders to combat broken games, and go hands-on with Far Cry 4, GTA V, and more!

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

Grapple-parachute-traversal cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we're checking in on Tales From the Borderlands, digging on some Just Cause 3 and pondering our experiences as a customer of the game industry.

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…
