Wii U Speculation thread IV: Photoshop rumors and image memes

Status
Not open for further replies.
I saw someone in another thread mention an NDA on WiiU games. What's that all about? Can developers not announce games or something?
Many games from e3 11 that've been announced for wii u have not been talked about again in detail since their initial announcements. There are other games in the past few months that have announced wii u support with logos in press releases, web pages (project cars), etc. that have been subsequently taken down. Lastly there have been a couple of developers, Ono, vigil, etc. that have even directly said or hinted that nintendo has been laying down heavy NDAs for the system and it's upcoming games.

Ha ha pretend. Whatever.
 
I've said it in every thread about the wii U and I'll say it again I hope HOPE Nintendo's classic "there's one more thing" at E3 is Earthbound I think I'll cry tears of joy and the only other thing that'll make me cry is a cubs world series win.

Both are pretty farfetched.....

Like, an Earthbound or MOTHER 1 remake? Because I think Itoi said the series is pretty much done. But I would take a remake if it allowed them to actually release it here.

They wouldn't save it for the big reveal though because nobody would know what it is. :(

My aunt & uncle run a Mom & Pop store, "The Gamecube Hut", and sold 80k WiiU within minutes of opening.
I get the feeling that if Microsoft and Sony are mum about their next gen consoles at their press events, than Nintendo will in turn hold back some secrets about Wii U.

No. If they do hold anything back, it would probably be an indepth look at the OS or NiN. No hardware stuff is going to remain secret months before launch. Also, corporate spying is common place. Microsoft and Sony know more about the wii U than we do.

Hence why there are various WiiU dev kits in the wild at the moment. The ones with the best kits are the ones smart enough to keep their mouths shut.

If other two are no show, Then what ever power and all that Wii U have everyone will say its not next gen and it dont look much better then this

:/ I cant see any of the next gen looking much better to most everyday joe, but if Wii U only one to show it will get a label as unpower what ever they show

Not a remake an all new entry in the series I think if it starred Ness people would know I mean look at kid icarus one smash bros and people are all over him why not give Earthbound the same treatment it could work again....

Yes, it could work. But. The writer of the series (Itoi) has stated he's done with MOTHER, and chances are, even if he came back, it wouldn't get released over here.
The best chance are VC ports or remakes, but it's doubtful we'll get those, unless they either buy the rights for all the music and shit, or they change it. Option 2 is unlikely cause Itoi has expressed opposition of changing the sound design.

@Terrell:
By the way; I don't like parting on bad footing (or starting on it) - are we done with our little thing? Cause you seem like a cool guy. Don't want to put a potential buddy-ship in jeopardy cause of me misunderstanding.

how about Cel Shaded instead makes the fire and thunder really pop.

Money has the power to change any mind.

No, I meant secret games and OS features like you described. For example, don't be surprised to hear nothing about Retro's new game.

Not an asshole.
My guess (still catching up on this thread sorry if it's been said to death) Nintendo wants to put Skylanders to shame with a proper console Pokemon.

Will probably be the first Nintendo console I don't buy at launch. : (
 
If Nintendo has to change something it will be the "U", not the Wii brand.
If they retain the Wii brand, naming it anything but the Wii 2- which flat out denotes a generational leap- will be stupid. The audiences, as they have already amply demonstrated, are too dumb to recognize a generational leap when they see one, unless it is actually told to them in as many words that this is a new system they're dealing with, not a revision.
 
So guys, if they reveal Pikmiin and Olimario was replaced by a Mii...how would you feel?
I wouldn't mind..I never rated him as a character. The Pikmin were the stars.

The ideal solution would be to allow you the choice of using him or a Mii. ..or even allow you to map your face onto the character using the camera ala Face Raiders.

Activision says "No comment" about Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Wii U...

http://www.officialnintendomagazine...-2-coming-to-wii-u-no-comment-say-activision/

The NDA strikes again!
The only COD that wasn't on Wii is Modern Warfare 2 and that's because MW Reflex came to close it's release.

It would be the biggest joke if Black Ops 2 wouldn't make it to Wii U (or Wii).

EDIT: Hey wait, why ask if it's coming to Wii U when the game isn't even announced? We're not even supposed to know it's Black Ops 2.
 
I wonder why Nintendo recently broke library compatibility. As of a few days ago, you can't link binaries unless all objects are compiled with GHS 5.3.10 or later. That's a rather significant change - not something that should happen at a minor version bump (bugfix release). So what exactly made that change necessary? Did Nintendo switch from IBM XL to GHS? Or were there ABI changes (new, slightly incompatible processor)? And why use such an exotic and incredibly expensive compiler in the first place?

What the hell are you talking about?
 
I forgot how people don't know about or don't believe that there is an NDA for Wii U. E3 is going to open some eyes.

In other news, Nintendo doesn't want to talk about the upcoming Zelda game for Wii U.

I definitely don't know.

From Star Wars to Star Trek?

This probably explains the CPU complaints. Looks like this won't be easy to develop for after all.

Hmm..sounds like a processor change to me.
No, it sounds like a compiler change.

The compiler is part of the CPU.
 
They haven't talked about it since E3 last year. I don't think they are letting Ubisoft talk.
Indeed. Ubisoft had setup a twitter to tweet updates etc and right after E3 it went silent. Ubisoft admitted they weren't ready to talk but Nintendo arm twisted then twisted again to shut them up

Someone give this man an account on WarioWorld.

I look forward to Ubisoft's big reveal of ports and shovelware.
Well, somebody's gotta make money in this industry.

Tech stuff.

A compiler is an application that translates source code to something the CPU itself actually understands. So you have several source files that are compiled to a number of object files, which are then "linked" to make a single binary. Usually, you can compile one source file with, say, GCC 3.1 and one with GCC 4.3, and still link both. You can even compile one file with ICC (Intel C Compiler) and one with GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) for example and still (usually) link them. On Wii U, Nintendo recently broke linker compatibility for some reason. Everything has to be compiled with GHS 5.3.10 or later or it won't link. And that's quite unusual. The two obvious reasons would be that a) Nintendo previously used some other compiler and linker and 5.3.10 is the first version of GHS for Wii U, or b) a recent devkit uses a different CPU that simply isn't compatible with older object files. Because a switch from GHS 5.3.9 to 5.3.10 shouldn't break compatibility unless something far more significant was changed at the same time.
