Falkor commented on Nintendo Releases An Awesome Mario Kart Infogr...:

Looking at the titles side by side like that, I actually prefer the older, more "cartoony" style of the first four games' titles. The sleek design of the new title is neat and all, but doesn't really feel like Mario to me. Maybe someday Nintendo will go back to that blocky/cartoon font for the title.

Falkor commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

I would estimate that I had fifteen or so Virtual Console/E-Shop games on my original Wii--at least a few hundred dollars worth of content. Well, my Wii bricked about a year ago (stuck at the health warning screen). Needless to say, I lost all of my purchases forever.

Falkor commented on The Link Between Worlds Poster Set is Back on ...:

@King47 Mario RPG is excellent, and well worth the 200 coins. It'd a bit easier/simpler than most Square RPGs, but is definitely not a "kiddie" game. Get it, you'll be glad you did.

Also, just ordered my Zelda posters a few minutes ago. Gonna put them in a frame and put them up in my game room!

Falkor commented on Nintendo Download: 20th February (North America):

I just noticed today that Nintendo actually has Super Mario Bros. 3 listed on the North American Wii U virtual console, but it's like "shadowed" out and has an "available soon" message on it. What's the deal with that? Confusing, to say the least. Anyhow, nothing this week for me. Here's to hoping we get Super Mario 64 sometime soon on the Wii U virtual console!!!

Good God I just threw up in my mouth a little. That blonde bimbo is cringeworthy. Random shots of her cackling and pretending to laugh along with somebody off camera...this is terrible. I don't know what else to say.

Falkor commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

This Direct was awesome! I can't understand why so many people are complaining. It's like a bunch of rotten, spoiled little children. Nintendo gave us pretty much everything we had been asking for:
GBA games on VC
Release dates for MK8, Mario Golf, and Kirby
Metroid Fusion on VC
X footage
Bayonetta 2 footage
a few surprises (NES Remix 2, Little Mac)

Falkor commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

Next Level Games tweeted to watch tomorrow for the Nintendo Direct. Do you think we will hear about a new project they are doing? Mario Strikers 3? New Punch Out? Or what about a Star Fox? They have said in the past that Nintendo keeps giving them "better and better IP's."

Falkor commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

My expectations are low. I just have this feeling that we'll get a new character for MK8 and maybe a new boss for Donkey Kong or something. I hope I'm proven wrong. Here's hoping we'll get release dates for Bayonetta 2 and an update on X and Yarn Yoshi...but I'm not holding my breath.

Falkor commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

"Beyond that, Google Glass is all the rage, for those that like the idea being "connected" all of the time — that seams like another step towards an Orwellian dystopia, with the NSA no doubt spying on your eyeballs, but we digress."

Couldn't have said it better myself, Thomas. Let's just hope that this new, unannounced Nintendo product isn't something along these lines.

@gatorboi352
"Please explain to me how something like that is going to equate to higher 3DS/Wii U sales."

I think it's safe to say that there's a whole market of untapped Nintendo customers with the younger generation of kids playing games on mom and dad's smart phone. What if Nintendo did a tie-in with Angry Birds? (I know, it's out there, but it's just an example) If Nintendo can release a quality, addictive, yet simple game on a smart phone, lots of kids would play it and be begging mom and dad for the bigger, better Mario game on the Wii U.

Falkor commented on The Nikkei Reports Potential Nintendo Smartpho...:

It's about time Nintendo gets with the program and brings its advertising/marketing strategies into the 21st century (i.e. smart devices/social media). This is a good thing, imo. Nintendo isn't going to ditch making games for the WiiU or 3DS. It seems like this smart phone strategy will be a complete overhaul to its marketing. Imagine a Nintendo "app" that allows kids to play Mario minigames (like the ones on the old DS carts). At the same time, this app would tease upcoming Nintendo games and products. This article really isn't that far off...

Falkor commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

At the very least, Nintendo needs to release the entire Wii Virtual Console library onto the Wii U. And I agree with what @ajcismo said...every first party NES game NEEDS to be on the Virtual Console. There is no excuse for it. I remember when the Wii was still in development, a lot of gaming magazines called it a "Nintend-all." That was the idea...it would be capable of playing all first party Nintendo games through emulation. Unfortunately, this is not the case. The release of Earthbound, however, was a step in the right direction.

Falkor commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

The lady and I bought our Wii U last night. We opted for the Mario/Luigi bundle with the two "New U" games packaged in. I have to say, we were both up FAR too late last night having a blast. I was deeply saddened and concerned to wake up to this news today. I sure hope Nintendo continues to see this console through and provide content for it...I would hate for my $300 investment to be dead on arrival.

Falkor commented on Nintendo: We Don't Want To Remake Past Zelda G...:

If Nintendo were to package the last two Zelda console releases as "re-imaginings" of the old games they could totally get away with it. There are several elements--especially from TP--that could back up the idea (Zant=Aganhim, Light world/Dark world, etc.).

Falkor commented on Be a PAL - Become a Connection Ambassador:

Holy smacks!!! This is an amazing promotion! When is Nintendo going to be bringing this to the states?!?!

Unfortunately, I have no doubt that there's gonna be folks online somehow scamming the system...we'll see.

Falkor commented on Rumour: New Mario In the Works?:

When I saw the headline, for some reason I thought it was referencing a new Mario movie. Then I saw the picture and thought Martinet was Jeff Daniels (they look almost identical).

So the first thing in my head was a Mario movie remake starring Jeff Daniels as Mario! How weird would that one be?
