Puddle Runs At Full 1080p & 60 FPS On Wii U

The developer has confirmed that the Wii U version of the game will run at full 1080p and 60 frames per second; you can also play the game entirely on the Wii U GamePad and still retain a 60 FPS. Puddle is scheduled to release November 18th on the Nintendo eShop.

          1. Well thats not my problem if they start acting like babies because of a comment I made. My post is not meant to be a troll bait. I’m just stating the facts: The Vita is a controller-wannabe that tries to mimic what the Wii U is uniquely capable of. Truth hurts.

            1. Sure the truth hurts, but it should be common sense that if you make a silly comment like that, trolls will reply. People complain about why they’re on this site, then you make comments like this keeping them on the site. Don’t ruin it for others.

                    1. You are the reason Nintendo fans get such a bad reputation. Stop the silly console wars, it’s immature and childish. Of course it’s unpleasant seeing people like you continuing to annoy the trolls resulting in childish insults being thrown around by both sides. Grow up, seriously. Discuss the news that is being reported, not which console is better. You’re as bad as Sony representatives at the moment, if not worse.

            3. I gotta agree with you sir. Its annoying when you cant post YOU’RE OPINION without others calling you a troll or stating you are trying to get a flamewar going on. We say what we want cause we have the balls to say it. Our intend isnt to give a damn how people react everyone can say what they want. It isnt our job to censor ourselfs so trolls dont run amuck, They dont need us to do that.

But hey, if you want to argue and look as bad as Sony reps, BE MY GUEST. If you want to ruin the comment section on this site for everyone, go ahead. If you want to make sickrs site look like shit, GO A FUCKING HEAD. You both a childish losers who need to grow up.

            1. I don’t know about that. Exclusives in my opinion is why consoles are so huge. Sony for example have some great exclusives. Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Killzone, LittleBig Planet, and the list goes on. Nintendo have exclusives that are memorable to their target audience as well like star fox, mario, zelda etc.

  1. Its not native 1080p thought is it trolls ??? its just 480p upscaled , blah blah blah .

    When making a game , if the developer says ”its 1080p 60fps” you know what they’re talking about .
    Just like when activision caused that recent shit storm by saying ”Full HD 60fps” . Activision OBVIOUSLY were not refering to upscaled supported video outputs . They are refering to the games NATIVE resoloution.

    I don’t care if its just a puddle , its good news . The wiiu has a large amount of Native 1080p games in its launch window now .

    Rayman Legends, Batman Arkum city , AC3 , Zombiu , Toki Tori 2 , Puddle , Monster Hunter Ultimate , COD black ops 2 , Scribble naughts unlimited and maybe a couple of others we don’t know .

            1. Mini Review:

              Graphics for 3DS: 9/10
              Story: 8/10 (Was a tad short, but the potential as a console version is quite huge)
              Game play: 10/10 (Nice and easy to shoot, can get quite hard when you put the difficulty up)
              Re playability: 10000000/10 (I’ve played it that many times, I’ve lost count lol)

              The characters are god damn awesome too. It has a nice anime feel to it. Overall the game as a 3DS download is amazing and certainly worth the money. It does feel a tad short, but god they’ve done well with this game.

  2. the thing about the vita isn’t that it’s a bad platform. it’s that the platform is $250 and is sold separately from the PS3. if you add the $270+$250 for the PS3 and Vita respectively, it comes out to $520. that’s nowhere near the Wii U pricing. And so, while the technology may be comparable to the gamepad, it’s not a system standard package, and so developers won’t develop with the Vita in mind like they will with the Wii U gamepad.

    it comes down to economics and install base.

    1. Exactly. Sure it can do what the gamepad can do to a certain extent. But Ubisoft hit the nail on the head. They don’t want to force people to spend the extra money to enjoy the game to its fullest. That’s why they like the gamepad so much.

    2. While current gen consoles can barely run the games at 720p, just display/upscale it.
      And this is at launch might i add. And tye games we know running a 720p, are all in 60fps, like Pikmin 3. At launch. With new unexplored tech.

      1. Pikmin isn’t going to be a launch tittle. Its schedule for a 2013 release, but you’re statement is pretty much true. Let devs get a hang of the tech and we will see gorgeous games in 3-4 years tops.

      1. Exactly. It’s like with the VITA. Developers are a tad bit skeptical at first with a new system. Plus they wouldn’t know a great deal about it. As time goes by, the system will get more and better games, with more and more of their potential being harnessed. :D

      2. The Wii U is the first true HD console. So the devs are not used to making true HD games yet. Since Sony lied about their system pumping out true HD games. They made very few 1080p games, so really the Wii U is the first real console that will support it. I do think the PS3 is fine I just feel they lied about bringing in the era of HD. No one can deny the lack of native 1080p games and even 720p ones. Though even so games still look nice.

          Horrible framerate becuase of lackluster development. People are teleporting around you online , and there is just a certain crustyness about the games FR . Not acceptable , not had this problem on ANY other of my tons of 3ds games . I have sold it now anyway…

          Framerate is crucial , in an ideal world EVERY game would have 60fps minimum.

          1. Yeah i heard it wasnt up to scratch. Thing is, the developer, N-Space i think, are used to just doing ports for the DS. They dont really get to explore the inner workings of a system, so i dont blame the for making it below par in terms of technicals, ect. But the most important thing is the gameplay, and the online premise, which they executed almost perfectly, so ive been told.

            Give them another shot at it, and in sure they could turn out as good as a developer as Intellegent Systems (minus the experience)

            1. Indeed . I like the game andthe framerate runs a bit better if you turn 3d off , but that makes the graphics look even more ”psp” than they already are. 5.5/10 , should of been an 8.5/10 with just a pinch more development.
