Franklin commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival (Wii U):
Franklin commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:
I hate the phrase 'Haters gonna hate'.
On the plus side, it does immediately let us know that the speaker is stupid.
Franklin commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Developers on Baby Mario'...:
Wow, I wouldn't say it's better than Yoshi's Island, but yeah it's a great, underrated game.
I felt Woolly World was somewhere between the 2 gameplay wise.
Good game, but compared to the original, the bosses are really uninspired.
I really want to get a woolly Poochy!
Franklin commented on Video: Check Out Cloud Strife's Marvellous Sup...:
Upon download of Cloud, the game's title will change to Super Sword Bros.

Franklin commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:
Makes me feel old.
Franklin commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Details Revealed, In...:
If ever there was a case of 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' it's the Mario Tennis series from the N64 onwards.
Franklin commented on Talking Point: Five Key Challenges Nintendo Fa...:
As Tatsumi Kimishima is President, I like to think it's now more likely.
If it's not region free, I'm not getting it. This nonsense needs to stop.
Franklin commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Few More Challenge...:
Mega Mushrooms are getting tedious.
Franklin commented on Rumour: Mii Fighter amiibo Might Be a Toys "R"...:
There are loads of them in Akihabara.
Franklin commented on Super Mario Maker Makes its Way to Super Smash...:
Amazingly this is the first time SMB3 has featured in a stage throughout the Smash Bros. series.
Franklin commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:
Quite surprised Nintendo didn't use Mario Maker and Pokken as NX launch titles.
Should be the Master Hand.
Franklin commented on Tatsumi Kimishima Named As New Nintendo President:
65 years old?
Franklin commented on The Pokémon Green Blob, New Legendary Zygard...:
I find this underwhelming.
Franklin commented on Mario Memories: How The Super Mario Bros. 2 In...:
SMB2 theme should be in Mario Maker ahead of the charmless NSMB stylings.
Franklin commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Challenge With Super...:
I'd prefer SMB2 theme in Super Mario Maker over NSMB.
Franklin commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):
Too close to my dreams.
Some things you should keep out of reach.
Franklin commented on Mario History: Super Mario Sunshine - 2002:
Loved this game, especially Noki Bay.
Wish they had a suit or something that fir better into the Mario universe than FLUDD though.
Franklin commented on Mario History: Super Smash Bros. Melee - 2001:
Think it's spurious to include Smash Bros. entries as Mario games.
Not like there isn't enough Mario games to cover.
Franklin commented on Nintendo Life Weekly: Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo, ...:
I want yarn Poochy.
Franklin commented on Mario History: Mario Kart 64 - 1997:
No other Mario Kart got the balance between luck and skill as right as this entry.
Franklin commented on Mario History: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Is...:
Wooly World is a good game, but I think the bosses in the original were far more innovative.
Franklin commented on Talking Point: Pokkén Tournament May Not Be a...:
A Christmas release could really have helped, but this will be too late to boost hardware sales I think.
Franklin commented on Mario Memories: How Super Mario Land Made Me A...:
Such a pleasantly odd game.
Franklin commented on Mario 64 Speedrunner Offers Cash Reward To Any...:
A $1,000 to pay off your studies?! What university are you at?
Franklin commented on Rare Co-Founder Has No Idea Why Nintendo Didn'...:
I don't know why Nintendo doesn't buy more studios generally. It would solve their 3rd party games problem (well, technically they wouldn't be 3rd party anymore, but the result is same).
They certainly have enough money. They've worked closely with Capcom and Namco, giving them key franchises to work on, buying those would be a good idea.
What bewilders me though is that Nintendo hasn't bought Sega yet. I mean really, it virtually is a 2nd party developer for Nintendo already.
Franklin commented on Hardware Review: Awesome Super Mario Inspired ...:
Hmm, got past the Ad-Block...
Franklin commented on Feature: How to Track Down Nintendo's Original...:
There's a Pokemon Center in most major cities, like Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya etc, though they're not always the easiest to get to. The one in Fukuoka is right in the main station, if you're visiting there.
In Tokyo, there is also the Nintendo Game Front, located on the 2nd floor of the Panasonic Center. It's OK, you can play the latest games there. Amazingly, there is no Nintendo World Store in Tokyo or anywhere in Japan. Really.
There's so much in Akhihabara, but the most famous is probably Super Potato.
Quite a few people have made the trip.
Franklin commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:
I think they're be a lot of 'RIP Iwata' levels created.
Franklin commented on New Pokémon May Be On the Way Following Movie...:
Pokemon poses for trading card photo.
Franklin commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:
Very well written, thank-you.
It's easy to forget just what a risk the DS and Wii were.
Franklin commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:
It seems strange that the death of a distant CEO can feel like losing a friend, but it really does.
Rest in peace Iwata san.
Franklin commented on Review: Solitaire Dungeon Escape (Wii U eShop):
Sounds like a generous score to me.
Franklin commented on Video: Unboxing the Yarn Yoshi amiibo & Seeing...:
Best video yet.
