So this one took me a bit because it’s a collection of games and I only finished the first 4. Castlevania 1 – 4… Having barely played the first 3 before.. it was intersting.. so here..we..go

Well to begin with I have written about my love for this series in the past. I grew up with Super Castlevania IV for the SNES (That being the first in the series I played and Finished). It wowed me back in 1991 with it’s amazing background designs and simple yet technical platforming adventure. The game was and still is pretty straight forward for the most part but having gone back a time before with the first three games was a treat and a challenge.

This collection which holds the first 4 games in the series for both NES and SNES along with 4 other titles that had been previously released for Gameboy and Sega Genesis and Overseas release was fun to dabble with. With this be the first part of what will be a two part write up. I will be talking about I – IV.

Castlevania 1…3…and 4 are pretty straight forward games and in some ways are the same game. 3 being the most different because you play not only as Trevor Belmont but it introduces two other characters to the series Sypha Belnades and Alucard who both have there own traits to add to the gameplay of the game. This also the first and from my understanding the only game that has multiple endings and routes to play it between these 4 games.

Castlevania 2 was by far the most frustrating but also interesting games I played between the 4 because it wasn’t liner in that it was an open world platformer. It took place both during the day and a night and required a great deal of mystery solving to it that honestly without a walk thru I have no idea how anyone could figure out. You played as Simon Belmont and some parts of the game were so difficult that I couldn’t think of how anyone for it’s time figured out how to solve the game with it’s poorly written clues. From my understanding Nintendo Power was REQUIRED to figure out much of it.

Honestly for what the games are I understand all to well why they are classics. It’s monsters and action at it’s best and at times most difficult. The game today still runs for about 20$ and really for that price you get your dollars worth considering this is more than 10 + hours of content involved with it. Personally I’m glad I bought it and while the series continues on well past this point. It’s a great classic to have on the switch and has aged well enough for it’s time.

So me and the girlfriend last night played and Finished the newest addition to the Streets of Rage series.. Streets of Rage 4! for the Switch… and here…we..go..

My background with this series is very limited as I never owned a Sega system till recently while getting into Emulations on the pi… So beat em ups are really just a dabbling genre that me and the girlfriend will pick up every now and again to enjoy.

While a background with this series I am sure would have been cool from what we gathered of the story and the characters it became clear it’s not Necessary. I does a good job of explaining what is going on and the why.

Picking up the game is super easy and you don’t need Two Controllers to play it. We used the Two Joy Cons and no issue playing the game. It plays pretty basic. Jump, Attack, Special Move and Pick up items. A combination of pressing two buttons at once allows you to do a super move. Again pretty simple and very Classic Arcade system for a beat em up.

You move up and down the screen beating up enemies of several types. Progress from stage to stage each with it’s own types of bosses and Enemies. In between each stage a small comic book clip like move explaining the story.

The game is beautiful by design, with really cool Synth Music to keep you pupped and going. It’s fun and easy enough to learn that anyone can just pick it up and play.

The best part!! Cause of a sale in the Nintendo Store it only cost 9.99! However I would have probably payed more cause it is a fun coop game. It does comes with other modes and you can reply it with lots to do in variation. Honestly.. IT’S A FUN GAME.. and I hope for more!

With the release of Doom Eternal “The latest in the Doom series”.. a Re-release of 1997s Nintendo 64 Doom 64 has been released for current gen Consoles. I have already finished it and played thru all of the game and here is what I have to say about probably my favorite in the series.. so.. here.. we go..

screen1

Doom 64 to start with is a game I have written about several times in the past.

https://videogamesalexander.wordpress.com/2011/10/30/something-for-now-till-darkness-is-finish-here-is-doom-64/

It’s without question one of the games I would recommend on my top 3 games of all time. It has atmosphere and a feeling to it that is both simple and Creepy at times but always full of action. With this being ported to current gen games I was a bit worries we would get a poor copy of the amazing experience we had in 97 however I was pleasantly surprised to find that the game holds up VERY WELL!

screen2

The graphics while dated of course are clear and adjusted extremely well for HD. While basic in it’s design but amazing for it’s time. This translation of the game is everything a person who didn’t play the game would want. It controls are simple as it was in 97 and the sound design holds up perfect for the experience. Everything was translated to this port in a perfect art.

Zero load times, smoother than the original frame rate and a slightly faster running speed that really can only be noticed while fighting off some monsters that otherwise weren’t a problem before are now. It’s perfect and exactly what any Doom fan would want out of a translation. screen3

Now people who pre ordered DOOM Eternal will receive the game for free which clearly is a STEAL!! However if you didn’t preorder the game you can still get it for 4.99$.  Which again is a steal.. Now why would anyone who already owned this game buy it?.. Well three changes I noticed that made it worth the price. First ADDED LEVELS!! Yeap they added a entirely NEW chapter to the game called THE LOST LEVELS… This was in prep for Doom Eternal.. and while I will say they are fun to play and give a little more insight into the story of Doom 2016. It more than made for the price point of 5$..

Second thing I noticed is that on the Nintendo Switch Version of the game it has a tracking Movement control. Doesn’t sound very interesting but it’s a cool thing to see. You move the switch motion Left.. The guy moves left… so you get it.. The other odd change I noticed which really was the ONLY change to the game was that medical boxes are BLUE …Not Red Crossed.. my guess .. Copyright or something… Either way.. YOU SHOULD PLAY IT IF YOU HAVEN’T!! it cost less than a pizza… Why wouldn’t you buy it??

H2x1_NSwitchDS_DOOMIIClassic_image1600w

To go along side the release of Doom 1 and 3.. Doom 2 was also released for the Nintendo Switch so naturally I had to buy it with the rest of the series. This time around I played it solo “Yes coop is in the game” and came into a few different issues with it. SO HERE are some thoughts..and here…we…go

screen1

To begin with Doom 2 is the least played Doom game I have played and not because I didn’t want to play it more but because I never really owned it for PC until I got my first Personally owned PC which was maybe in 2002. It’s slightly different from DOOM 1 in that the difficulty level even on normal is SOOOOOO MUCH HARDER..

So what makes it more difficult? More enemies, harder stages to solve and a personal sense of ego that causes me to never give up on stages that i put myself into a hole with! The biggest change in this game from DOOM 1 is that you are given a Double Barrel shot gun and NEW DEMONS!! The Double Barrel is slower but more powerful than the single Barrel and it helps to killing off some of the previous monsters but not so much the Newer Demons such as the Pain Elemental and Revenant “HATE BOTH OF THOSE GUYS!! But love the designs!”

screen2

You can tell that with this sequel everything that was learned from DOOM 1 that worked.. Works really well with this Sequel. The satisfaction factor of clearing out a room of 30 Demons is always pleasant however I will say that so many times you will die and saving is a must considering how often you can do it in this game.

With this game concluded I am happy to say that a recent update has added that on top of this game coming with the Master Levels which is a added 30 + stages. The game will have added FINAL DOOM AND DOOM SIGIL On top of the upcoming release of DOOM 64 which now comes with the new Doom Eternal to be released on March 20th!

SUPER EXCITED About that.. Yet coming back to topic.. Yes doom 2 is sooooooooo much harder than Doom 1 but for the price of 5.99.. your out ya mind not to buy it! It’s fun…Simple.. AND challenging

After months and months and months of me telling my girlfriend I would get to Undertale.. WE FINALLY DID IT… and all it really took was for me to buy it on the Nintendo Switch.. to do it… SO HERE WE GO!!!

lady.0

To start with HAVE AN OPEN MIND…cause to say this game is an experience is an…UNDER….STATEMENT… HAHAHAHAHAHAH…. ok … ummm

You play as a little boy?…..little girl…… ummm…little person.. “That works!” who falls down a hole into a world of Monsters. You encounter lots of different creatures, monsters, both cute and scary looking.  One of the most interesting things about the game is how it’s played. It has sort of a turn base thing that gives you the options for Fight, Act,Items, and Mercy. It forces you to interact with your actions by moving your heart piece in a box while things try to attack it.  Personally I think I sound crazy describing that but that’s exactly how it works.

Switch_Undertale_screen_02.0

Lots of text fills this game and personality is a quality I have learned it builds very well. It’s a unique story to tell and often I found myself saying….”what?…what happened?” The music and graphics are probably some of the best I have heard in awhile with this type of retro style. It was a good mix of horror at some points.. and some action rpg…You will gather items and build the character as you would in most RPGs.  Like I started with it was a experience.

From my understanding of this game it has several endings..and depending on how you choose to play it can change the game dramatically.. I went with the pacifist route…  Meaning I didn’t kill anyone the entire game… Which was hard.. but not impossible. I might go with the more aggressive route in the future but … who knows…

Was it worth the money to buy it off the Switch Shop…YES!! If you are looking for a adventure game that is over all easy to play and unique… GO FOR IT!

BOTW-Share_iconSo before I start this I think a brief bit of history should be given. I have in the past Finished Most of the The Legend of Zelda games which include (The Legend of Zelda, Link, A Link to the past, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Twlight Princess, and A Link Between worlds) Any that I haven’t named I am still working on currently. I have never been a fan of open world games and have even gone on the record to say I HATE OPEN World games. So this being my prospective of this title I was very weary going into it. Yet here we go…lets see what I thought.

339cdeff6ec52c0c-600x400

To start off this is the first Zelda game I have played in awhile that really had no guide to it. You wake up and you get going for the most part. No real directions are given as to what place you should go or how you should go about playing the game. This is also the first Zelda game that I can remember in awhile that you didn’t get the sword or shield in the first 10 minutes of the game. Cause it’s open world (very much like Zelda 1) you are pretty much given the story that you have been asleep for 100 years.. Zelda needs your help.. and you need to find your memories to figure pretty much everything out. No Navi, No Midna, No real help….short of the nice people of Hyrule.

Now while I did finish the story to this game I am 100% sure that I didn’t find everything the game has to offer. I knew from exploring that I had to defeat the 4 Guardians and that the world was open to explore and without bounds. Which is why it took me so long to just get past the story.  I knew that from playing the other Zelda games that a Master Sword was probably in a forest some place. That a Master shield had to be around to go with it and that Link would also acquire different outfits to get past different areas. That much is Common with every Zelda series. However the amount of exploring this game opens up for you is just OVERWHELMING.

One of the main reasons I don’t really do well with open world games is because I get lost very quickly. However getting lost in this game is pretty much how you find everything. It places into your hands the thought of HEY .. what’s over that mountain or what’s in that cave and lets you explore. Personally I both love and hate that idea. I love it because if you think about something chances are you can do it. I hate it because if you just want to get from point A to point B chances are you will have to deal with some nonsense in between that.

It’s a beautiful game without question and has all the things I personally want out of a Zelda game. Puzzles, Interesting Monsters, Interesting mythology, Fun story telling, Items to help me get in and out of places and above all HOURS UPON HOURS of replay ability. Yet for the most part the one thing I noticed that was missing was lack of Direction. I know at least 4 people who are currently or who have already finished this game. Every person has a different story to tell as to how they managed to finish it and what they needed to do TO DO IT. Personally I think that is awesome because it becomes a experience. It makes for great conversation and keeps the game mysterious while maintaining a basic concept for what is happening.

450978-breath-of-the-wild-4k-screenshots-2

Again the game is beautiful and full of things for you to explore and do. The world is very much alive and something is constantly happening around you at different times. While I will say I would have much rather it been a linear adventure much like A Link Between worlds with some exploring on the side I find this game to be a very new and very modern way of exploring the game world. Who doesn’t want to run around Hyrule without bounds after all?

Now in terms of game play the game has a really easy setup. You get health from eating/cooking combined Items. Yes you can still gather faeries and yes they still do what they always have done but for the most part you want to keep the food to up your hearts. The game puts a emphasis on gather hearts and gathering Stamina upgrades. All Zelda games have had in the past the heart meter and while the Stamina gauge is new it also limits what you can explore. Without the correct amount of Stamina you aren’t climbing some mountains or gliding to some areas. So in a very clever way of gathering that you are required to gather orbs from Shrine locations all over Hyrule. From what I understand the game has over 100 Shrines. You are required to have 4 orbs per heart and or Stamina Upgrade.

maxresdefault

To sum it all up simply If you find a shrine you deal with a small puzzle and or Enemy to get the orbs. Again the game emphasis or exploring to get those heart and Stamina upgrades.  You will run into Forest, Deserts, Water temples (I HATE THOSE in every Zelda), and Caves. Overall the game never leaves you bored with things to do and to explore.  It does have a fast travel system that allows you to teleport from one Shrine to another and this time around you can gather mounts to run around the world if you like as well. Again the game is an experience because of all the things it allows you to do while maintain the basic structure of a Legend of Zelda Adventure.

Personally for my money I am happy I purchased it and still want to explore more of that world. Like I said I am 100% sure I didn’t find EVERYTHING just…yet.. and yes it has DLC…but we will get to that another day…maybe….

So this is a game I have been working on for awhile now. To this day I have only really played 3 of the 4 Fatal Frame games in the series, so going into this I had a small idea of what I was getting myself into. Any who..this is what I thought!

22

To begin with this is one of the more beautiful horror games I have seen to date. The Graphics are really good in a dark and gritty sorta way. Not so much gory or bloody but it sets a good environment and atmosphere for what the story is trying to tell. The ghost are creative and really you are going to run into the same ones over and over again but what really stands out are the places they appear.

Because the game is 3rd person (like resident evil 4, Evil Within) to explore and First PERSON to attack it becomes a bit difficult to play. All the ghost in the game are slow moving until the moment of attack. You will switch from 3rd to First in a instant and this will cause you to move the wiiu pad to follow the ghost. It took me a moment to understand but like taking a REAL Picture with a camera angles and position with timing is very important on how you attack each enemy. Getting a Fatal Frame which is the strongest attack you can have is tricky but by the end of chapter 1 the game sets you up to understand everything you need to know.

The Upgrade system for the Camera is also very important to keep in mind and while the game paces it VERY VERY SLOWLY.. not upgrading makes the later chapters harder to finish “EVEN ON EASY…personally I played on Normal”.

Now again this is a slow paced horror game. You aren’t going to be running and hiding like most games now a days. Film is used as ammunition and for the most part it’s a giving system. In total you have 14 chapters to finish and while that doesn’t sound like much I would say it’s probably a 6 hour adventure NOT Counting the bonus Chapters after you finish.

What really drives he game is the story and for the most part it’s clear to understand HOWEVER you are going to read notes and pages of information that seem repetitive at times. By the middle of the game you pretty much get what is going on and for some odd reason the game likes to hammer it in.

Over all it’s a very fun game and the sounds and graphics are worth playing if you are looking for a slow paced horror game. A couple of times I got lost but only because of some minor detailed glitches. I enjoyed the game and for the most part the characters are fun to play with. Do I think it was worth the price? Yes! It had a free demo which included the first chapter of the game so really anyone can try it out and see what think. I am happy I finished it and think the series is still one of the better horror series I have played.

So this is a love story about a event that accord recently. More specifically yesterday “04/07/2015” it involves Customer Service and how THINGS SHOULD BE DONE ALL AROUND!

So I have had my Nintendo Wii “Not Wiiu” for about let’s say.. 8 or 9 years now. The machine runs great! All but once did I have to send it to Nintendo to get it repaired and even at the time that I did send it in.. they REPAIRED IT FOR FREE. So really no big deal on my end.

Now at first my thought was that maybe it was the memory card. I have had that GameCube Memory Card since 2002 so that was more then 10 years ago I figure maybe I needed a new Memory card. I went on amazon and managed to purchase a NEW memory card for fairly cheap. No big deal! I put the memory card in and played Resident Evil Remake and it worked fine. The card saved my data no biggie.. didn’t think anything more of it.

Then I played Mortal Kombat Deception and managed to get all the way to the Second Quest of the Conquest mode and for whatever the reason when it went to load the next Chapter it started the issue again. Only this time the game said it was corrupted and needed to DELETE EVERYTHING off the memory card. Sad to say..it did that.. and I was back to START on ALL GAMES.

So I looked up the phone number for NINTENDO CUSTOMER SUPPORT. The phone call lasted over all perhaps 20 minutes. I spoke to a really nice gentlemen and explained my problem to him. He listened well and was very helpful at trouble shooting the problem. In the end it came down to me sending my Wii in for a repair. Not really a big deal because I sort of knew this was going to happen when I called.

Now here’s the best part! The guy would explain to me that a price would be required “something I also knew would happen”. He started out explaining the price of shipping tax and how much the repair would cost at about 99$. So I questioned him.. “at 99$ couldn’t I just go out and buy a new one?” and he replied.. “Yes you could so I tell you what.. I WILL DROP the price to 75$ is that a better price?” I was like …yea that’s not to bad.. but I think I will just wait it out then because that’s still sort of High for me…HE REPLIED AGAIN..”Ok 75 is too high how about I cut the price of shipping and make it 50$” …

I…WAS…IN…SHOCK… Because not only did he cut the price down to 50$.. but he added a renewed warranty on the machine IF they could repair it.. OR A BRAND NEW MACHINE with all my data transferred for the same price.. SO TO SUM IT ALL UP.. FOR 50$ I GET MY MACHINE SHIPPED AND REPAIRED “OR REPLACED” in just a week and halfs time!

no company I have dealt with in the past has been this giving..”I AM LOOKING AT YOU SONY”.. Hell Sony when I called about my ps3 being yellow lighted.. WANTED 150 BUCKS TO REPAIR IT .. PLUS I HAD TO SHIP IT… SO MORE THEN 200 BUCKS..

Honestly.. I will be shipping my Nintendo this morning.. I already have my shipping information.. and really.. I LOVE HOW AMAZING NINTENDO IS FOR BEING SO COOL WITH A MACHINE I HAVE HAD FOR ABOUT 8 OR 9 YEARS AND WILL PROBABLY CONTINUE TO HAVE FOR ANOTHER 8 OR 9 YEARS…

THIS IS WHY NINTENDO IS THE BEST!!

With the holidays in full swing and everyone and “there mothers!” Coming up with list of games you should and Shouldn’t BUY OUR CHILDREN this year. I have come to terms with something a little more easy to understand. Facts you should know about the stuff you are buying for your children!

Now all this information is coming from ME! A adult that was a kid during the 90’s so chances are I have seen and heard about almost every Violent, sexual, or other wise ADULT contented video game known to be released to date. I still play video games and really the stuff I played as a kid looks otherwise silly by comparison to some of the stuff they are releasing today! So here are some tips to help EVERYONE out when buying a video game for you child. 🙂

Tip 1.

First and foremost I think the biggest problem Shoppers have is that most people forget that they have a mouth. Communication is the mother of all HELP FULL things to do when shopping for your child. Ask the local sales man if the game is right for the child given the age. Ask Neigbhors if they know anything about the game. ASK THE FREAK DELI CLERK… Communicate your ideas and let it be known that you are buying a game for a child of age 1-16 and pull as much information about the game as you can out of it.

Best EXAMPLE: A man is going to buy his son a game titled Skylanders. His son is 8 years old and the man knows NOTHING about the game. The first thing a person can do in said situation is communicate with the sales men “who should be informed” about what exactly he is buying. Asking questions like “what does the game involve? Is it violent? Does it have any type of content that would offend me?” Perfectly normal questions that really you can relate to any forum of Media. Would you let your child watch CNN without known what was being presented? Probably not so really .. ask ask ask

Tip 2.

Reading!! READ! READ! READ! I don’t know how many times I have seen someone hold a box and still have no clue what the heck was being held at hand. Really it makes me laugh! The back of every video game box has a very brief explanation of the video game. Some back story! Also ..and it shocks the heck out of me.. but some people don’t even notice that the back of the box  in the same spot ON EVERY SINGLE BOX.. IS a Label titled ESRB..

esrb_ratings

I think even most Gamestops have a GIANT POSTER.. that gives this information. It’s a rating system and it explains exactly what is in the game. if it labeled M, A, RP, OR RARELY K-A… Chances are you shouldn’t buy it for your 9 year old. However who am I to really say .. some kids are more mature than others but really … that’s a judgment call and you will sort it out.

NOW I SHOULD also point out that while we live in a modern setting today.. It is also important to note THAT THE ESRB DOESN’T NOT control the content you can DOWNLOAD! Many full games today can be downloaded onto the system themselves and many of your children KNOW THIS! So while you might think I DIDN’T BUY HIM/HER THAT! You probably did buy him/her the Xbox box points, or Sony points…or EVEN ESHOP Cards.. that allowed the child to download the game ONLINE.

Most games you download online will tell you before you CLICK NEXT.. This game HAS ADULT CONTENT! again…READ!! While you might think nothing of it now chances are the game has a rating system on it and they tell you about it BEFORE YOU DOWNLOAD THE GAME!

Tip 3.

Research is pretty much PARENTING! Most parents are so stuck on work, or other things that they don’t have the time to do the research. Can’t be bothered with crap like that.. and really just want to make sue and john happy! So My suggestion to you is this.. Take 5 minutes… BEFORE BED…AND REVIEW SOME VIDEO GAME WEB SITES… most web sites “this one included” have a search bar! All you need to do is Search the title of the game “hell google it!” and chances are you will find something on it. IF READING IS FAR TO TIME CONSUMING! We have alternatives! YOUTUBE.COM IS YOUR FRIEND! Chances are if it’s a new… title someone on youtube has reviewed it! If it be some random guy or a website like IGN.COM or GameTrailers.com… Chances are someone has said something about the game. It normally is a short review…KEEP IN MIND YOUR LOOKING FOR REVIEWS… NOT LET’S PLAYS…those are much longer.. and while yes they can be entertaining..chances are your going to watch the entire game with someone commenting about it.. and still have no clue what is going on..

REGARDLESS RESEARCH IS KEY! Again we are talking about MEDIA! Some of it is for children ..some is for adults…and really that is just the time we live in now..it’s 2014.. not 1990… i hope you all enjoy your Holidays..and i HOPE this was informative..

Bayonetta-Image-pic

So I downloaded Day 1 Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 on the Wiiu E-shop. It’s taken me this long to finish both games. More so it’s taken me this long to finish Bayonetta 1! Bayonetta 2 it took me all of 7 hours from start to finish which I managed to do today! So let’s start with the first one!

wii-u-bayonetta

I should note that I did own the ps3 version of this game. I never finished it but my girlfriend did. It took me a long time to find the time and build up the will power to play and finish this game. Which is sort of odd because I finished DMC before I finished this game and that game came out after it. Regardless of all that! Once my ps3 broke down AND I found out the Wiiu was getting the sequel exclusive. It was enough for me to trade my ps3 version of the game in for a little money and Repurchase the game with the sequel for just under 60 bucks. WHICH IS GREAT!

Bayonetta-2

 

So as I said the game play is very action based. However it also plays similar to a fighting game in that timing and maneuvering is very important to getting past enemies. Now I played this one on normal difficulty and found it to be EXTREMELY Hard to play. Yet this wasn’t a bad thing, it added to the challenge and made it rather entertaining to say the least. I can’t tell you the number of times I died but after a bit of planning and using my items correctly I learned how to make it all work. It’s one of those games that you really do need to practice at and take time to learn. Now with that said I am sure you could play it on easy mode and probably run past most of the game no problems. YET I didn’t know that when I started and well.. yea…it took me awhile to finish it but it was worth it.

It’s full of interesting characters, good story telling and it really is very fast paced and ACTION PACKED. You will not find much time to sit around..However I will say towards the end it kinda feels like it dragged on a bit.. but it wasn’t to bad. Regardless it’s a fun game and worth picking up for the price it’s being sold. I am sure you can pick it up for cheaper on the xbox and ps3 but you won’t get the best version of the game as those two versions are SERIOUSLY FLAWED with menu delays and graphic problems. This version is beautiful, sounds great, and holds little to no bugs in it.

bayonetta-2-logo

So having spent so much time playing Bayonetta 1 and having issues on Normal Difficulty I figured…ok this time..EASY mode or in this case “Climax 1 2 or 3” I figured 1 would be the best way to go as it took me forever to finish on 2 for the first game. However what I didn’t know is that the game would be EXTREMELY EASY having chosen 1. So really I should have started 2 and it probably would have been a more challenging experience. Yet none the less the game was fair to me and I managed to finish it in 7 hours. ….today

Bayonetta-2-Screenshot-07

The game pretty much picks up right from the end of 1. Give or take a months have passed and things ramp up pretty quickly to begin the game. Over all the mechanics of the game are the same in both games. So if you had no trouble with 1 you will have no trouble with 2. The monsters in this one are however EASIER TO DEAL WITH.. So again.. Don’t expect the game to be as difficult as the first one.

Bayonetta version 2

Again the game has a fun cast “most of which from the first one” and it goes on to explain more of the story. It offers lots of new elements but keeps the stuff that worked in the first one so really it’s a comfortable game IF you learned the first one from head to tow.

The series is a ton of fun to play, it has a cool story that makes sense once you finish BOTH games. The monsters and puzzles take a little time to learn but once you manage it both games are really worth the experience. I enjoyed the games very much and think for the price and bundle they are giving it at for the wiiu right now.. WOULD BE WORTH YOUR MONEY!
