FJOJR commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

Getting a bunch of games. Hopefully I can accumulate enough to tip over into platinum level and be one of the lucky few to hit that mark every year of Club Nintendo. In fact it would be pretty cool of Nintendo to give out something to those who did manage that.



FJOJR commented on Talking Point: Star Fox for Wii U is an Ongoin...:

The Assault stage in Smash is hopefully a preview of what's to come for the new Star Fox. The Wii U has the muscle to pull off some amazing scenarios that the GameCube, DS, N64 and SNES just could not do. Gameplay is nice but if the game can be beaten in less than an hour like SF64 then it better come with a price tag to match cause $60 is asking too much. Heck $30 was too much for the N64 remake on 3DS.



FJOJR commented on Sega's Digital Restructure Means 300 Staff Wil...:

@GreatPlayer I love Sonic. Have since Sonic 1 on Genesis. Sonic since the end of the Dreamcast era has been, on average, atrocious especially when you compare him to Mario. There's no escaping it. Every platformer that comes out WILL be compared to Mario. Sonic's games have not all been bad. Colors and Generations were the 2 best 3D platformers for Sonic since Adventure 2. The Advance and Rush series on the handheld were solid adventures that showed that Sonic in 2D was still fun.

However SEGA has mishandled him far more. 2006's debacle, the fact that they somehow messed up a Sonic 2D platformer with Sonic 4, and now Sonic Boom which took a backseat to its TV counterpart (which is an ok show with Dr. Eggman being genuinely funny) instead of the other way like in the 90's and even in the beginning of SEGA's 3rd party venture. Sonic diehards will never admit it but the character still looks up to Mario and probably from further down now than he has ever had to before.



FJOJR commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:

I've played every Metroid game. My first was Metroid Prime on the GameCube. I knew nothing of the franchise other than Samus being in Smash Bros. This trilogy is near and dear to what I consider Nintendo's most pristine series.



FJOJR commented on Sega's Digital Restructure Means 300 Staff Wil...:

Hoping SEGA just keeps spiraling down the drain. Sad thought from a person who's owned the Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast during their generation but it's the only way to free the franchises to more suitable companies like.....Nintendo.



FJOJR commented on 3DS Web Browser Exploit Allows Game Boy Color ...:

This would be nice for those GBC games you know will never come out. Nintendo is taking way too darn long to trot these out. Their future handheld running the NintendOS would probably look to solve the issues for porting with speed.



FJOJR commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

The Prime trilogy! This means I don't have to pay a ridiculous price for the physical copy. This gives me hope for playing Xenoblade Chronicles which will probably be released sometime around X's release.



FJOJR commented on New Mario Maker Footage Shows Off Multi-Genera...:

Donkey Kong Maker, Wario Maker, Yoshi Maker, Kirby Maker would be relatively easy for them to produce. But doing a Metroid Maker and Zelda Maker would be a tough grind. F-Zero Maker could be good as the customization option has been done before in the series.



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

Sonic's handling in Smash Bros. is how he should be in his own games. It's amazing how much Nintendo nailed other 3rd party characters better than those companies themselves.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo Shuts Down Screenshots in Mario & Lui...:

Nintendo's been doing this since the 80's. Funny since Japanese culture tends to be less prudish in some aspects compared to western culture. Hopefully they get a patch going rather than take the lazy way out and hurting the majority for the misuse by a small minority.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Party:

As far as the best in the series I believe that 4 struck the best balance though 2 really was a step above the original while 3 was just 2 but bigger. 7 was a good entry especially for the experimental 8-player minigames. The mic games in 6 & 7 were more trouble than they were worth. 8 was just horrendous, probably the worst of the series, lazy ideas, lack of widescreen, lack of 60 fps, maybe it was a huge sign of the fall of Hudson. Have not tried 9, DS, Advance, e, or Island Tour but I'm looking forward to 10.
