C-Olimar commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

Maybe, just maybe, the fanbase for Sonic games is shrinking because too many recent games are terrible. Nintendo maintains its core fans by continuously releasing great games.
In fact, maybe the biggest problem in Sonic Boom wasn't the lack of speed. Maybe it's the fact that the game is an abomination, a rushed insult to fans which his company published in the state it was in.



C-Olimar commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

Of course we understand the difference between an 80+ level platformer and, say, an endless runner on a smartphone, but most people are just going to see "Mario", so for them it's a choice between a sub-£1 game on a phone they already own or one costing £40-50 on a console they will have to pay hundreds for.
This move will decimate Nintendo's hardware business, I feel.



C-Olimar commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

"everyone involved - developers, publishers, hardware makers and the gamers who buy the end product - is guilty of having a very "stale" view of women."
Right. Literally everyone. Despite being a staunch feminist, if I buy this game then I'm definitely not taking it as the joke that it is. I bought the first one, so I guess I agree that women are just there to be pretty objects owned by men.
I mean, it makes total sense. Not like I'm gay and was just looking for a decent and funny brawler to play on 3DS.

Ugh. Why can't Squeenix just release this? 6 was released as the DS was dying, hence the slow sales in the West, whereas 9 sold pretty well (despite Jedward's best efforts to destroy the game's UK sales). I'm sure there is enough of a market for 7 to be worth a punt.

Kind of thought Termina's name could have been derived from the other meaning of terminal - "forming or situated at the end or extremity of something." Seems to make sense, given the story of the game.
Interesting article.



C-Olimar commented on Iwata Doesn't Feel amiibo Has Shown Its Full P...:

I'm looking forward to card amiibo, but I'm anxious to hear the price. Nintendo's previous attempt at collectible cards (Kid Icarus Uprising) was terribly overpriced - £1.50 for 6! And these didn't even have NFC chips in them.



C-Olimar commented on New Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Eon T...:

I literally just got my eon ticket today -_-
To be fair though I haven't played OR in over a month so I could have got the eon ticket at any point during that time... I had like 15 streetpasses.

I'm glad Ninty are doing an online distribution for this, so no-one is left out, though starting with Streetpass was a good idea. Hopefully we see more Streetpass promotions in future - as long as Nintendo make whatever content that is distributed available to all gamers later on.

Excellent article :)
I know Sakurai is sick of sequels but... Kid Icarus 4 now!
I'm surprised at how good Box Boy looks. I was initially sceptical about Nintendo's desire to release smartphone-like games but if this is the general outcome (more this, less Pokemon Shuffle) then I'm all for it (as long as they don't impact the release of bigger and better games).



C-Olimar commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

I wish I had the money to buy every amiibo in a store. Then I could send them to deserving nintendo fans who miss out on their favourite characters, thanks to greedy scalpers, nonchalant retailers and nintendo's own ineptitude.
As a side note, I would flip if I missed out on an olimar amiibo.
