Every Friday here at Wii U Daily we like to take a look at what our esteemed colleagues on the forums are talking about. There’s always some big discussion that’s going on and this week is no exception. Here’s what’s been popular on the Wii U Forums this week: Photoshopped Wii U Game Cases Now that Yamauchi has passed, what will become of Iwata? Will the next Zelda game be a First Person game? Are there enough games that make the Wii U worth buying? Is a Gakai-like service possible for Wii U? If you think any of these topics are worth discussion, why don’t you pop over to our forums and check them out now? We’ve got a very active community of dedicated Wii U gamers to chat with and plenty of them are eager to find new people to play Wii U games with. See you on the forums! local_offer Nintendo wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Nintendo was brainstorming about Switch when Zorpix Good topic choices. Specially the shopped cases one :3 Zorpix I guess people dont like that I like things o,o Nintendude Silly Zorpix, this is the internet, nobody can have an opinion! 😀 Zorpix HOW DARE YOU THINK THEY CANT HAVE OPINIONS! 😉 CEObrainz I was surprised to see it on the list. TheLordOfDarkness I really enjoyed them! The shopped cases were mostly very plausible and they were all fluent with their series and the Nintendo ‘bright’ and glowing theme! The only criticism I had was the 1st Pokemon case was really bland. It seems like they should be standing on grass with maybe a cartoonish town or a house in the background, or hill or something. Just a plain white background doesn’t really do much. Awesome photoshops! 🙂 CEObrainz Thanks, I wasn’t sure what to do with that. I’ll definitely have to redo that one. CEObrainz Well I did manage to update it: Looks less bland now and more like an actual game. http://th01.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2013/271/e/4/pokemon_universe_wii_u_game_case_by_ceobrainz-d6o9u1h.png david jarman Wii u is capable of cloud base gaming on gamepad. It would require an update in the firmware. Aamir Islam My new goal: Get one of my threads to get on this list. My username is Gameboy Nintendude Why hello Gameboy. We meet again. Aamir Islam Greetings gtosheex not to be a debbie downer, and no offense to those who put in the hard work, but those photoshopped Wii U games look terrible… Henry Hotspur Yeah, really don’t know what they were going for. Guest As I said to the person before you, why not explain what’s so bad with the cases. For example: http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2013/269/8/e/fire_emblem_x_shin_megami_tensei_wii_u_by_ceobrainz-d6nz96y.png CEObrainz Just tell me what you don’t understand about it. Use this as a reference for example: http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2013/269/8/e/fire_emblem_x_shin_megami_tensei_wii_u_by_ceobrainz-d6nz96y.png CEObrainz Rather than just say it looks terrible, why not describe what makes it so terrible. Constructive criticism goes a long way to helping you know…. gtosheex That is actually the best one but Shin megami tensei needs to be bigger. They all just look like people copy and pasted characters onto a lame ass background. The lighting or shadow outline around every character does not help at all. Overall just really cheesy looking… CEObrainz That’s a better comment. There are actually several backgrounds layered on top of each other in that particular image. I get what you mean with the bigger logo for SMT and the outline is just something I like to do. I’m not exactly trying to fool people into thinking it’s the real thing, just having a bit of fun. gtosheex yeah i wasn’t trying to be mean – i know you put time into it. i just looked at pikmin 3, w101, and rayman .All the covers seem to have something actually going on in the picture – not just still frame poses of characters randomly assorted. I think that is probably more the way to go. CEObrainz True, but those covers were designed by actual artists that have access to a database of concept designs and models for these characters. So it’s not exactly like they go through the same process I do…. 🙂 oontz Less outer glow on your layers and a more subtle drop shadow will go a long way. Also zoom in more on your edits/cuts and soften the rough edges. 🙂 CEObrainz Noted, I’ve started trying to use it less now. oontz You can use drop shadows all you want. But play with the spread and reduce the drop shadows transparency so it’s more blended. You can also do this with inner and outer glows. Remember the old saying, “less is more” this really applies to design. Also one last thing… Be sure to copy and paste your blend options to each (similar) layer to maintain consistency in the design. Keep practicing, you can only get better, not worse! Cheers Luna Moonfang *cough cough* Summer Update *cough* *cough* Nintendude Now come on the forums and find the most popular thread, there is most likely an argument going on. NextChannelGames Got news from Mighty No. 9! It just reach its Online Co-op mode and they just announce a new stretch goal for the game to be on both 3DS & PS Vita 😉 IBlock Nice. 🙂 Archiq09 I want a Twitch TV system for streaming as xbox/ps4. John Aguilera I made this just a bit after Metroid Other M was released. I didn’t like the cover art they chose for that game so I decided to make my own. howling_wolf1334:[ IS GAIKAI!!!! Not “Gakai”…. Duhh!!!! Mark A cloud service is definitely possible on Wii U; all Nintendo has to do is make a cloud service or partner with a third-party one.
