If Miyamoto says the fun will begin, then the fun will begin. If you hadn't noticed, the N64 controller does not plug into the Wii U. Sometimes games need to do things differently, they just need to do that. Even the... yes, the controls.

The "Nintendoomed" has not been as bad as it was in 2013. That year was unlike any other with all the doomsaying going around from both industry professionals and enthusiasts. "Fire Iwata" was something you read every second day that year.

DreamOn commented on Sonic The Hedgehog is Now 24 Years Old:

I'm older than Sonic so I was able to appreciate the birth of Sega's awesome mascot, unlike Nintendo's. The sonic genesis games are still near and dear to my heart to this day and constitute a huge chunk of my video game nostalgia

Freedom Planet Demo was an awesome surprise. I was waiting for this game to move to console and I'm so happy they're putting it on eShop. I've played through the demo tons of times already I'm just that excited

@TheFurminator But even then, the tree house played much longer demos and some games were played three times in each days they had Treehouse live and with different people playing. That really gives you a lot of gameplay footage and a step above those very brief onstage conference demos that played one section of the demo max.

DreamOn commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

Businesses take risks not consumers. Consumers are sold on sure things because that's what they can afford and any risk is hidden or in the fine print. He'll need to tackle the challenge using different wording and approach than that.

Well, they'll try multiplying the order by 3.5 times the stock before quadrupling it. If there's still customers upset, they'll quadruple it at that point. Shipping 5X the stock? Out of the question, they don't want uninformed customers to have a chance to see these characters just sitting on the shelf to maybe then become interested in their products!

DreamOn commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

People aren't talking about it much anymore but the future prospect that Mario is leaving his consoles as mascot to be just another character on mobile in the eyes of mobile phone users is a huge, huge step for Nintendo. Yes, the hope is that they discover who Mario is, and where Mario is coming from, and will want to follow him back to those roots, but Nintendo has played a massive card here already.

Reggie got insulted at World Champ, Internet blew up at his E3 Direct, people are seeing some red flags go up about future Wii U releases... It's just not Reggie's year. I'm surprised no one's pressed him about amiibo stock yet

DreamOn commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

I feel bad it happened to Next Level Games, a studio that had a previous scrapped Metroid concept. I'm not a fan of some of the stronger reactions going on but I think a lot of booing is fair. They replaced Samus with Federation nobodies and the morph ball with the blast ball. It's strange, right?

That said, I think the game will sell decently in the end, at least in the eShop and at the very, very least, after a sale price. But I don't think the game is as doomed as Internet comments would make you think. It'll do better than Codename Steam.

DreamOn commented on Nintendo's E3 'Roadmap' Infographic Shows Off ...:

More than enough for me, and I do mean more. Not unhappy about the line up at all outside of a bit of sadness that Zelda U was delayed. As far as E3 goes the only thing disappointing to me was the Metroid. Had that been a Samus adventure instead of the robots it'd have called it a great E3. Some great indie stuff coming too this year that gets me excited and looking for the time to play it all

DreamOn commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Lol. I'm fine with what was shown. Star Fox, Yoshi, Mario Maker, Splatoon, it's a good year as far as I'm concerned. But I have very few gaming needs as I play a lot of retro games in a year, so I guess I'm not the average fan.

DreamOn commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker Stole the Sho...:

It went as well as one could hope. There's something about video games that make it challenging to build a spectator show around. So much of the excitement of interactivity can be lost when just viewing all the action, and heaping on televised sports, game show and even Hollywood elements don't do it justice. I will say that Mario seemed to transcend all that complication. Probably because of how brilliant and iconic and meaningful that game truly is.
