Just for the record; he’s not in the game. He might come as DLC later on, but as of right now, SEGA thought Meemee, Amy and Danica Patrick would be a better fit.
On the other hand, there are still some cool characters in it. I personally love newcomers Vyse, Joe Musashi and the excellent AGES. I won’t spoil what the latter really is, but it’s probably the best vehicle in a fun racer ever.
Yeh think Ryo's one of the DLC characters or something, my NN ID is 'DisturbedSwan' same as my XBL Gamertag, I've sent Friend Requests to you Maryokutai, Platinum, Maf-Me-Quick and Shadowman and Grizzly
Only had time to play ZombiU today as I was trying to get the internet set up and then downloading the HUGE update for most of the day.
I knew I would like it but actually playing through it has probably exceeded my expectations to be honest, loved the atmosphere, environments and sense of dread, reminded me of the Condemned series (which I absolutely love aswell) the only bad point so far is that the objectives seem a bit dull, but I'm sure things will heat up as I get further into the game.
As for the Wii U itself, I'm impressed. The Wii U gamepad is pretty cool, feels great in my hands and feels just weighty enough to not feel tacky. The console itself looks smart enough but you hardly realise its there most of the time to be honestas the Wii U Gamepad dominates gameplay and all the Wii U menus are primarily navigated by using the gamepad.
The Wii U menu itself is bloody annoying, it feels like it hasn't evolved atall and it takes AGES to navigate between applications, also things are in strange places. I spent AGES looking for the Friends List to add you guys on here, and its burrowed away in the Wii U home pause menu thing which is extremely hard to find.
I had a little fiddle with MiiVerse and (surprisingly) it seems quite cool, quite facebooky/twittery and a cool place to write messages/share tips with friends and stuff.
Not had a go on my other game (New Super Mario Bros. U) yet but I'm gonna hopefully get round to playing this tomorrow.
