@Lizuka no it didn't. If adding characters is hardly influential. ALL games add new characters.
It's the format, structure, level design, power ups, aesthetics and mechanics that were introduced in SMB3 and expanded on in super mario world that are influential factors to consider that not only influenced the mario series but the platformer genre in general.

DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

@GAMEandASH the game wasn't a mario game. The onkynretained feature from mario bros 2 is the jump styles and alternate characters and that is it. There was no gaming feature or level design that was retained in any subsequent mario game and one feature an influential game doesn't make. But your opinion is your opinion and it is more than throwing out there for discussion

Super mario world is technically super mario bros 3 part 2.
The whole format of super mario changed with SMB3, which remains today through super mario world, mario galaxy, new mario bros, mario 3D world.
Way more concepts and game changers were brought in through SMB3 than any other game ever.
Super mario world is the better game as it took mario bros 3, tightened it up, brought us more character, a mario world more Visually inline with what we all now know and love, and of course yoshi. However these are all aesthetic and the core influential facets are all lifted from SMB3.

It would be nothing like trying to make a ps2 game for a ps1. The power difference is nowhere near the same. The point is, is that the game could DEFINITELY run on wii u. Check the minimum PC spec for this game
http://www.game-debate.com/games/index.php?g_id=17044&game=Batman:%20Arkham%20Knight
Wii U?
Or how about when splinter cell was made for Xbox, then remade for gamecube? Visually you could see the differences, but the game was the same. But the consoles this gen (wii u included as it is next gen) are so powerful, the graphical in-game difference between ps3 and ps4 is subtle and close to negligible, so the wii u would be closer to ps4 than ps3 would. Not developing a wii u version of this game for the reason they've stated is just fobbing people away from the real reason.
I wouldn't be surprised if it is developed already to a point and it is sat waiting to see if the userbase grows then it gets more funding, finished and released 12-18 months later as they announce "oooooooo we mysteriously found a way to make it run"

@Mega719 I've nothing against lego games and i own lego batman 2 on wii u, I just this one as a slap in the face after telling us we're not getting the main batman game, especially after I've invested in arkham city and origins. To start us a franchise off and then deny it while it's still goings just insulting. The DLC situation around arkham origins proves it's their attitude toward wii u that's the sticking point and nothing to do with the capability of the hardware which is plenty powerful

@FragRed that would true if it wasn't an utter lie. It is more likely they were bunged a load of money from Sony and Microsoft to push it as "next gen" only. If the wii u can run project cars it can run batman. There is nothing graphical or AI wise about a car that the wii u couldn't run.
If the wii u is going to run a seamless 400 square mile gaming environment for zelda then Gotham is no where close to being to big for wii u.

Will be buying all 6. I would love if this is followed up by all Rare's nintendo licenced games being released and we saw Killer Instinct, Conkers Bad Fur Day and the Banjo games eventually being release. And SUPER BATTLETOADS IN BATTLEMANIACS!!!! Not licences I know but a SNES game all the same AND one of my all time favourite from Rareware.

This would be a smart move from Microsoft. Better to take a cut of profit from game that would sell millions worldwide wide rather than a cut from games developed by the now Rare that sell nothing.

DESS-M-8 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

For gods sake. That's ridiculous.

They should have bypassed this whole charade and just released a wavebird styled pro controller. Basically a bluetooth wavebird incorporating the extra buttons the pro controller has. By the time you've bought an adapter and a pad it would be just as much for a "ProBird" and you'd have an unparalleled replacement for the nondescript current project controller

They need a release date. My son has £20 burning a hole in his pocket this weekend but unfortunately skylanders is out on Friday so that'll disappear there, it would have gone Amiibo's way if they'd pull their finger out

@Damo and you don't even actually know me. But there are a hell of a lot of people, gamers and publicised reviews that rate monster land over dragons trap. But that'll be true of any two games being compared, somebody somewhere will prefer superman 64 to ocarina of time. But the world still turns. Ultimately, everybody's opinion is utterly worthless to anybody but themselves, including publicised reviews. Everything is subjective and down to the person subjecting it.
EXCEPT MY OPINION WHICH IS LORE AND MUST BE OBEYED AND RESPECTED BY ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!

@electrolite77 can't copy and paste your lengthy message using my phone to disect and reference what you've said, but in summary, you are just completely wrong on every single point you've attempted to make.

This is definitely excellent software, my son uses these books are school. The software backs them up and gives another way to enjoy the series. It doesn't replace reading books, but when we've done his home reading and he picks up the 3ds and picks to play this game through his own choosing, it consolidates his learning in a way that's fun to him. I couldn't recommend this software enough, infact I did do to his school the morning of its release after I downloaded it day one at midnight!!! Not smash bros I know, but an excellent title to engage your child thinking and learning while they think they're having fun

DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

@electrolite77 yes it was.
There is the same comparative between the ps3, wii u and ps4 as there was between PsOne, n64 and ps2.
The N64 fell into exactly the same generational slot then as the wii u does today. Wii u was the most powerful console available till ps4 came out, justice n64 was until ps2 came out.
I never said The N64 was on a par with ps2 I said it fell between PsOne and ps2

@Pigeon there were plenty of great games on Saturn and PsOne. Most have aged appallingly. Final fantasy is nearly unplayable. Metal gear would have been infinitely better if developed for n64, FACT, as would resident evil, but resident evil 2 proved that point.

The hardware and capabilities were way above PsOne. They were 32 bit, 64 was 64 bit, ps2 was 128 bit. Just a fact that shows what I'm talking about. The loading times rubbished anything on PsOne enough to make CD based gaming seem like a backward step.
N64 was for games, PsOne was for good games developed on inferior hardware hiding behind the shine of CD music and pre rendered cut scenes and marketing to distract from the disgusting graphics compared to the 3D world's and models the N64 could achieve with ease.

I don't care at all. I'll be getting smash at midnight on Friday. Definitely want the new 3ds, was sold when they announced port of xenoblade chronicles.

DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

@Pigeon no. There just were that many games on N64 that were that good and proved it was a generation to itself. Way beyond any playstation or Saturn could offer.
It almost seems that because of the generational leap the N64 made, that's what's resulted in nintendo always being in a limbo generation and wii u somewhere between a ps3 and ps4 as the N64 was between a ps1 and ps2

Won't be getting this.
I want digital eshop copy, gamecube controller adapter and the satisfactory of dusting of my wavebird (the greatest controller ever made) for use on a game in 2014. It won't know what hit it.

I have no idea why the wii u pro controller was a poor 360 styled pad, it's awful. They had, for its time, the greatest pad ever as a stock controller in the gamecube. They should have just evolved that with minor tweaks to number of buttons and their layout, bluetooth connection and rightstick adjustment

DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: History Shows Us That Nintendo'...:

@Caryslan sorry but the general consumer was most definitely swayed by fmv and most importantly marketing.

The fact such great games only came to PlayStation alone was due to the market gains of PlayStation from flooding marketing and exclusivity deals Sony paid for. Those games would have been better in every way if developed for n64

The first two years of PlayStation games were dire and relied wholey on marketing, they were primagine mainly 2D gaming with CD sound and pseudo 3D in a 2D plane like crash bandicoot. Later endeavours at 3D were even worse with appalling control and had to retain 2D control such as metal gear solid. That game was crippled being developed for PsOne, but at least it kept it's cutscenes. (metal gear solid is one of my top ten games of all time, just not the PsOne version) The PlayStation hardware was appalling, hence the constant revisions. The pad was a quick cheap SNES knockoff repeatedly revised to imitate advancements made in the N64 controller.

Marketing by Sony was the N64s failure, that marketing lead to a shift in some later key titles going Sony only. And that has been they're marketing strategy to this day. They are not a video game company, nintendo is the only one left. They are an electronics manufacturer and only make hardware and payout out millions for exclusivity in production rights and marketing.

To this day, they release garbage and pay for exclusivity, then repeatedly copy nintendo innovations.

Not one good aspect of Sony hardware and peripherals has not been copied from nintendo.

They're only original and exclusive feature? The ps4 'share' button. Every other part of that controller has come from nintendo. The PS move? Pretty sure I've seen that somewhere before. The fact you can now use a vita as a touch screen controller for your ps4? Now that sounds even more familiar.

Gamers buy nintendo, consumers by Sony. Idiots buy Xbox. However, the swing of third party sometimes pulls so far right of nintendo that you need a second console, hence I've had a ps3 for the last 6 years. But I will not own a ps4 ever again, pointless console and my wii u/3ds/ps3 combo will last year's to nintendos next gen

Sorry, I was talking about the market as I saw it in the UK at the time. The neo geo was a market to itself really. But good point.
CD gaming was just appallingly slow and took away the quick blast nature that is a foundation of home console gaming. The N64 was really unfortunate that the general consumer was swayed by non interactive fmv cutscenes. That is ALL Sony ever aired on their tv commercials, never a single frame of in game footage
