Hi guys & girls, haven't bought digital in a while, could you peeps answer a few questions, i was going to buy some digital wiiu games off the eshop but I wanna know before I buy whether the games will be added to a purchased list for future download if I ever need to change my hardware or when the eshop on the switch makes the wiiu titles available? Is this the case?

Haha. That's naive (sorry). eShop downloads are for sure restricted to a console and not to a account. You have to buy it for every console new. You have ideas...

Yes, that's the sad truth.
But Nintendo said they change that with the Switch. Don't know if they made it, but it means you have to buy everything 'a last time' on Switch to bind it to your account.
You can download your bought games as often as you want, but only on the console you bought them (and use them with every account on said console).

Thanks for the reply, it's disappointing, hopefully things will now start to change with the Nintendo Switch, unfortunately no back compact titles have been announced so far but I'm hoping titles will start to be added I wanna go all digital this gen.

    @Xzi Thanks for the feedback! I'm planing to make alot more music for each of the levels, so it don't get so repetitive! And working on some graphical upgrade ideas!

    Do you use 8bit equipment for the music and FL studio
  • RichardTheKing @ RichardTheKing:
    I did notice one particularly bad bit of text formatting (and minor typo): in the UFO fight, when trying to shoot at the bottom, it says "Looks like the UFO have some kinda shield" - "has" is better. Also, the very next text box has "L et's try shooting the top instead!" with a line break in the word "Let's".

    @kenenthk I used OpenMPT to make all the music. My brother will be helping out with some more tunes in the future!
  • KimKong @ KimKong:
    @RichardTheKing Thank you so much for pointing out that dialog bug!! I never noticed it while finishing up these new boss fights..

    And that gap on that level should be close enough to jump if you run? I might have to lower that platform a bit maybe?
