@kantaroo Actually, ACGL was always their official company name. Ultimate PlayThe Game was "merely" a label / publisher for their Spectrum releases. Hence the ACG key in Atic Atac!

BTW: in my little world, coder brother Chris Stamper is a demi-god. His work in the 8 bit home computer era cannot be overestimated. This award is long overdue.

Oh please... i'm starting to feel embarassed by all the negative butthurt spread by my fellow "fanboys". E3 was just fine with plenty of surprises and some interesting news. People should just stop acting like Nintendo owes them anything.

It's indeed extremely annoying but also makes them look very silly. And it's not even a very effective defense because once you've sussed them out, they are easy targets.

Translation: we thought we could build a Wii U version using the same codebase but we have discovered it would never perform decently unless we rewrite large parts of it to better suit the hardware. Given the economics of such an effort I'd say this will never happen.

All the more reson for Nintendo to give us a new F-Zero !

The extended period did NOT go more smoothly. I finally managed to get in a battle but got kicked out after about a minute. This also screwed up my connection and i had to reset my router. Then i couldn't get back in.

Finally got in a match after an hour of frustration but after 1 minute the connection was lost and the game stopped. i had to reset my router after that. Get your act together Nintendo or I'm not buying this!

Mk_II commented on Mario Maker Japanese Website Points to Inclusi...:

Mario Maker is already a solid must-have for me and Yoshi is like the cherry on top. Anything is better with Yoshi.

Are they going to give all the different graphic styles a single, unified physics engine?

The actual engine would be the same but it will implement different a physics & action model for each style / era. So Mario's jump will differ from level to level.

@Kirk releasing anything nowadays requires certification in most countries. Here in Europe Nintendo has to get age certificates from four or five different boards and the procedure and timeframes vary wildly between them. So it really is not that simple.

I just hope that the "smart device" Nintendo products don't eat up what is left of the dedicated handheld market. On the other hand: as a collector it is good that series / franchises / things come to an end at some point :)

Mk_II commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

Not really shocking. They already announced they'd be looking at new ways to leverage and sub-license their IP. And it looks to me like the development work for smart devices will be done by DeNA so it won't distract from Nintendo's core business.
