I'm...really not impressed with those graphics.

I just received the emails from Nintendo and GameStop heralding the WiiU and read up on it. Sounds all fancy schmancy for $299-349.99, right? I wasn't impressed, really.

And now, I'm really not impressed. I don't know if they rushed the game, or if that's the console's limitations, or what, but that just doesn't look great. I mean, I've seen better graphics on Android. I have N.O.V.A. 3 and the graphics blow this game out of the water.

I paid $.99 for it. This is $40-50.00!

PASS.

If this is due to the console's limitations, I'm honestly surprised. It has a Radeon GPU in it. I'm usually not swayed to Nvidia or AMD/ATi, but AMD has fully impressed me with the APU in my laptop. A $400.00 laptop capable of playing the Batman Arkham series on medium to high settings... A laptop. Yeah.

So, I'm more than a little stunned that an AMD GPU would look this bad. It has to be the design of the game, or the WiiU sucks in other departments.

This looks like a crappy, quick port from the Wii/3DS version. The character models aren't very detailed, but there's minor improvements to the textures, and some easy lighting effects thrown in. Judging by how other WiiU titles look, this game was a last minute decision. Can't say much about the gameplay, though. That might have been decent already, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Compare NOVA 3 to COD Black Ops, then, or Assassins creed 3. This game in specific looks more like a money grab. But if you prefer to dump on a console based on a single port, then go ahead.

It probably is a money grab, but I also dump on the console because I had a Wii. It turned out to be rather terrible. I don't regret getting rid of it. I pulled my GameCube out of storage and I've been happy with it. (Only thing about the Wii I miss is the component video connection. The GC doesn't have it unless you pay $80-125.00 for an import cable from Japan.) I realize this has full HD graphics (1080p) and just one game will not a console make, but after being burned by the Wii, seeing this game and knowing that PC gaming usually outclasses consoles in terms of graphics, I have every reason to knock the unit.

And Activision.

Do i really need to cement my point again about a good game not needing good graphics? PC owners who bash consoles always come off as snobbish and entitled. Bashing the Wii U is a bit dumb. seeing as how nobody here actually has one because it's not yet been released. TF Prime looks like a lazy port, but dont bash the system because of it.

I tried not to laugh at this. I tried so hard. But I just couldn't help but to laugh out loud upon looking at ratchet again.

And It was me who said it looked like it would be Dreadwing Piloting it. I thought for some reason that the little dude inside the Thunderwing pretender shell was named Dreadwing. I dont know were I picked that up, honestly.

Wow, people are using this topic to badmouth the WiiU? Seriously? That's just sad. I mean I can see that coming from PC-only gamers, who are always talking down consoles ('cause consoles are where most AAA companies focus their efforts). I'm an all around gamer (Steam is the best thing to happen to games in the last decade) and a huge TF fan. So let me clear up a few things.

1. The WiiU has at least equal if not better graphical capabilities than the 360 and PS3.

I have personally demoed several games on it, as they had a preview event in my area to which I was invited. I would specifically point to ZombiU as showing off how well the system's graphics can preform. Of course, as any gamer will admit, seeing a games graphics in action is far different from looking at screen shots or youTube videos. So I really can't stress how impressed I was with the graphics, as I did not expect Nintendo to jump to the forefront of console HD.

2. This game is clearly a port of the Wii version.

I'd hope- and everything seems to indicate- that they are adding some special features for the WiiU version. It would be a waste to port the game over if you weren't going to make use of the new controller. That said, this is Activision. Well, wait. First off most companies re-use their existing assets when porting a game to another system. At the preview event I mentioned the WiiU version of Arkham City looked terrible compared to the other games on had because of this. So those are likely all the same models and textures from the WiiU version, just touched up a bit. I mean, looking at it they might be new textures, but clearly optimizing this port was/is not a high priority. Most likely because we're talking about Activision, and they see something like a Prime-verse game as "kiddy" and thus not worth much in terms of time and resources.

3. HasTak needs to make a Prime Thunderwing figure.

Seriously. He looks very cool, even with the sub-par graphics. :P I'm wondering if he gets killed off in the game or if perhaps they'll work him into the show somehow.


As to the value of the WiiU. Well, only time will tell. Every [non-biased] gamer and developer I've talked to has been very excited about the possibilities of the new controller. But honestly there's no way to predict if interest will wane- like it did for the Wii- making the controller just a passing fad, or if it will prove to be a true boon for gaming's future.

Now ontopic

To pc people: Playing a game for graphics is like watching porn for the storyline.

Yes, pc graphics outclass consoles. But you have to buy a 800 bucks pc to do that. And withing a few months there's a new graphics card. + games for pc aren't optimized for one specific graphics card so you always have to mess around with the graphic settings. Which I hate. A console is, you buy it, games and for 4-5 years you're ready set to play all the games just the way every body else playes them.

More ontopic

I haven't played any of the games from Now Productions (what a game studio name, well, we also have From Software and they make aweseome games Dark Souls). Tie-in games are almost always rushed, and I seriously don't plan on getting any Nintendo console. Why isn't it released on the other platforms?

Woah. All the bad reception is annoying. This game is probably still in development, or it is the wii version ported to the Wii-U. (Also Bumblebee in his alt mode when he is battling Dreadwing means we can transform at any time)

Yes Wii U will be stronger that all current gen consoles. It's hilarious thinking any gaming console coming out would only be on par with something that came out six or seven years before. As for the screenshots, well I'll wait til closer to the game's launch (two months from now) before I make any judgement.

Sorry about diverting the thread a little bit guys, but i gotta defend my boys! I have one thing to say, a quote from the Avengers......a message you say? :-?
Councilwoman: "I don't think you realize what you've started, letting the Avengers loose on this world. They're dangerous."
Nick Fury: "They surely are; and now the whole world knows it....every world knows it.
Councilman:"Was that the point of all this? A statement?"
Nick Fury:" A promise."

Later, the Chitauri leader named the other confers with Thanos....
"To challenge them....is to court death.......
:grin: 8) 8-}

And on-topic, did they ever say where this game actually fits in with the show continuity wise? i can't seem to remember. I must say i don't really have high expectations, but the thunderwing has kinda got my hopes up. Wii-only games can swing both ways though, sometimes.......

Pretty sure they said that this game (along with the Rage of Dinobots comic) bridges the 2nd and 3rd season.

They said it's set concurrently within season 2 somewhere, but they didn't specify where.

Which leads me to believe that it's gonna be another one of those headache-inducing cases trying to find a place to fit it in with the show. :roll:

Dreadwing's in there, so after "Loose Cannons", at least.

Also, the Insecticons seem to be a threat, and no sign of Airachnid or Breakdown. Sometime after "Armada?"

That makes it even harder since "Armada" starts the beginning of the global relic hunt, going all the way to "Hurt" in one continuous storyline.
