DreamOn commented on Talking Point: Market Expectations Remain High...:

To continue: I mean, just look at the 3D Classics project from Sega and M2 for 3DS. A company already earning probably more from its most popular Sonic mobile app than those re-releases. That is a passion project for M2 while also being given the go ahead with the expectation of modest profits for each party involved.

@Peach64 Your comments regarding Nintendo being just another cold corporate entity striking at only the richest vain, strike no balance. You're talking about the company that still produces hanafuda cards. I don't believe Nintendo would accept losses in producing console experiences, but I do believe there is some flexibility with modest profits to preserve a more traditional and core experience for its still profitable fan base which includes its own passionate staff.

I hope everyone has been reading the M2 interviews over at the Sega Blog for each of these re-releases. It's a good way to really appreciate what's been put into these games!

Played 6-7 levels of Captain Toad last night. It's unbelievably charming and polished in appearance! I'm loving the gameplay very much as well.

It's too bad that this is the kind of game that will only sell to a minority of Wii U owners. And compared to the broader industry, it's like it won't even sell at all.

The issue is that sometimes committees like this aren't always as informed as they should be before issuing advisories. Third parties can be useful when it comes to the acceptance of certain sources of "endorsed" research. In a world where all ruling bodies and corporations are clamoring for control, it's good to keep open minded

DreamOn commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

You have to blame Nintendo. They have taken most of their 2D characters and given them all fantastic 3D gameplay. Without their flawless record in this area, we could be a little less harsh on old Sonic.

Seriously speaking, Sega needs to restore Sonic. Restore him, Sega. Please find a way, Sonic is a great video game Character.

Wow! What other developer of Sakurai's stature even says things like this? The man brings it back to the roots. He cares deeply for game crafting and obviously just as much for the consumer experience. A gem in the industry, Sakurai is.

If there is any dissapointment here, it's that the platform was not rolled out with a sandbox Nintendoland that lets you "transport" the character into it's digital place, as Activision or Disney might have handled it. But again, I find Nintendos execution of tacking on the platform to a game NOT built around a make-believe concept to be the better use of their development resources, and my gaming time.

@ThomasBW84 That's fair enough. I can't help but think the generous and exciting prospects you are talking about were people's own imaginitive expectations after the announcement and limited diagram. I really don't believe there's any reason to feel dissapointed by the amiibo platform yet. I think this is better execution of the concept than Activision's and Disney's. And the limited retrofitting or shoehorning if want to call it of MK8 is not really the pin to the ballon of this platform that the article makes it out to be.

No mention of NFC cards and smaller figures? Nintendo has stated plans for what is highly likely to be more affordable solutions to NFC locked content. So I wouldn't be so quick to start throwing around the word "cynical" in relation to what will be a very very limited production run of one-game Smash amiibos.

By the time the majority of the clueless public becomes aware of amiibos on the shelf, these one-time Smash amiibos will be bought up never to be restocked. That's almost a garaunteed scenario and Nintendo knows it (and has even stated that caveat). Plus it will give confidence to retailers for stocking future amiibo branded products with the 'Sold Out' due to under produced initial run of smash amiibo.
