    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album
    Kinda reminds me of Drill Dozer and Wario Land. Those are things that I like. But holy wow, the visuals really have Game Freak written all over 'em. I would've assumed their involvement even without their name visibly attached to the project.

    Welp, this.
    Looks dope.

    That being said, the title feels a little "it's 2006 and I'm an edgelord!" Nitpick, I know, but it's something I'd be embarrassed to say aloud.

    The name really reminds me of Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit. The game itself not so much though. At least you'll be able to abbreviate it to Tembo, though then I guess people might confuse it with Tempo. :v:
     
  7. I honestly thought the topic name was a joke until I finished watching the video :P

    This looks interesting. Might give it a try.

    Not where I want to be.
    Sonic (?): Coming summer of 2055...?
    Thought title said Tempo. Got excited as fuck for a second.

    Honestly the game looks a little shallow to me. Like there's not a whole lot to it. Still looking forward to more info though.

    I'm getting super DK Country vibes from that trailer. Looks like a fun little thig.

    And if Tembo isn't a super hidden Legendary in the next Pokemon, there is no justice in the world.

    Guess we gotta make a Game Freak page on Sega Retro now. :v:

    How odd that it isn't on the Wii U but everywhere else.

    Their justification for that is golden. Apparently when doing the mockup posters they forgot to add "Wii U" when putting the consoles it's off to, and went "well, this actually looks nice as is".

    Yep. :v:

    Anyways, didn't we already have a Gamefreak page? We ought to, with Pulseman at least, plus Sugimori's constant SEGAwanking.

    Ah, with the wiki's search broken I didn't even decide to check.

    Well actually, it's only on PS4, PC, and Xbone. So I wonder if this is a case of them having developed it on PC first, and since PS4 and Bone are basically just that, then it was easy enough to do it. GameFreak isn't exactly the best developer when it comes to the technical aspects.

    This is probably the real reason its not on Wii U. Though I think next you have to think about how well 3rd party eShop titles sale. Not very many crack the top 30 on the system, its mostly Nintendo titles.

    This has been a issue with Nintendo and 3rd parties for a long time... sadly its getting worse.

    In this case, it seems unlikely that hardware is the issue. According to Gamereactor's interview the game is made with Unity, which Nintendo has made pretty clear supports the Wii U.

    Well then, I figure it's probably SEGA's idea moreso than GameFreak's. I mean, doesn't the Wii U SDK even come with a Unity development kit for free? So, Nintendo is a SERIOUS supporter of that engine.

    Looks kinda bland. It also managed to do the one thing I hated about NSMB Wii: freezing the whole game for a split second every time something happens. Screw that. Totally destroys the flow of the game. It made NSMB Wii unplayable with my brothers who die constantly :v:

    10/10 would not buy

    Same here. Then I remembered this was about an elephant.
