GoneFishin commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

Wii U has had dozens of game changers according to Nintendo Life. It's a game, nothing more, nothing less. It will surely succeed on its own merits, but there's no reason to act like this is some sort of launchpad that will take the Wii U and Nintendo as a whole to previously unimagined heights.

Stop fabricating drama where there isn't any.



GoneFishin commented on Social Networks Go Into Meltdown Over Apparent...:

@sillygostly If you scroll upwards to a previous post, I don't disagree. Frankly, I think if they were out to fabricate and spread a believable rumor, they failed miserably. You only needed to exercise a little bit of logic to see that this is much too soon, with Majora's Mask 3D just weeks old.

That said, your point isn't really correct as a reason for why this doesn't make sense. The only semi recent rerelease for Twilight Princess since 2011 in North America, was Australia about 18 months ago.

If anything, they could use that against both of our points. Europe received several Nintendo Selects releases in the 12 months after this, yet Twilight Princess remains unavailable as a Nintendo Selects release.

One of the biggest titles on the Wii, which in earlier years was reprinted in two large markets, yet it remains unavailable in Europe despite the Selects program actually still being underway there (And unlike anywhere else, their program has been regularly active since the start in 2011)?

Continuing to sit on it at such a late date could easily allow someone to read something into that, and construe it to fit their claim that Nintendo now has plans of another sort for Twilight Princess and doesn't want a budget priced Wii release in such a huge market to take away from it while lesser titles continue to see rereleases.



GoneFishin commented on Review: Yoshi's Island DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

Why aren't you using screenshots of the Wii U version? Providing your readers with an accurate representation of what they can expect to see on their tv screen for a DS title on the Wii U, should be a prerequisite. You may as well skip even bothering to include screenshots when they're not representative of the product available.

With the plastic in all those Majora's Mask 3D cartridges barely even cold, did this claim even merit a story? Nintendo isn't going to follow up immediately with another major Zelda port on this platform.

Would've been much more believable had it been something like Super Mario Sunshine 3D.



GoneFishin commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

I didn't see a lot of good sales for the PS3, but I'm not buying that PS3 related sales only accounted for 1% market share. There are funny numbers here that aren't telling the correct story. Hopefully more reliable data such as from NPD will surface soon.
