"Nowadays, you have to build the game and then hope you can keep nickel-and-dime-ing people afterward. You have to interrupt the experience asking for money, and I think it takes away from the game."

Spot on. The "freemium" model is quite unappealing.

Mahe commented on Nintendo Download: 10th April (Europe):

WarioWare is a great game, but I already have several copies of it (GBA, GC, 3DS Ambassador). Nothing for me then.

@Frapp That would be great, but it would require some special engineering. It could work with just a Wiimote, too.

Mahe commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Played some two-player Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze already, hunting those missing puzzle pieces. Other likely candidates include Mario & Luigi from Wii U Virtual Console, and 3DS games headed by the Streetpass Mii Plaza games.

@TurretGunZ It's partly Nintendo's fault that the video game industry is doing badly. By driving Wii U to the ground with the asinine Gamepad, they're hurting their own games as well as third party games. If there was no Gamepad, Wii U games from both Nintendo and third parties would be selling better.

"It's little surprise that this charming Mii-sim has come to the West, especially as it's enjoyed impressive sales in Japan."

Not that clear-cut really. It's been out for a while in Japan. Meanwhile, another even much more popular "Mii-sim" from Japan, Tomodachi Connection, hasn't even been confirmed yet, and the DS version was never translated.

Revolution? The 3DS wasn't a revolution, it wasn't even an evolution - it was actually a worsening from the DS and DSi. Still a good handheld that has come into its own, but one can only wonder what would have happened if Nintendo hadn't bet on the 3D screen and had made a truly revolutionary successor to the DS/DSi instead...

@faint The difference isn't all that big, and it would help if there was a wider retail presence as well as downloadable games from bigger publishers. Just think back to the recently cancelled Pac-Man collection - which still came out on other consoles. That's just the tip of the iceberg in showing that even download games are avoiding the eShop.

@JohnG There's not much Nintendo can do about it right now. They coupled the Wii U with the Gamepad, it didn't take off, many developers don't want to develop for it. Hence the lack of games, especially interesting ones.

@cfgk24 I also avoid using my Gamepad at all times when possible, because I simply don't like it. I'd rather have a console that I could use completely without the Gamepad, but that's not currently possible.

Glad that many games like Donkey Kong Country TF don't require the Gamepad.

@wombatkidd Here you go, CVG article about the PS1:

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/364728/features/cvg-classics-playstation-revealed/

"--first pic of the 32-bit Sony PlayStation console which has excited punters and producers alike with its allegedly 'better than Saturn' specification."

"We're not too sure about that nasty-looking (PS1) joypad".

Slamming both the Saturn and the PS1 in the same article! (Though it's generally positive for the PS1, as the PS1 was really shaping up to be a worthwhile console back then - easily the best of the bunch between it, the Saturn and the N64.)

Mahe commented on Video: What Could Super Mario Galaxy Look Like...:

Makes me want to replay the game. Looks much more interesting than Mario 3D World. Wonder how it would look on my Wii U?

@Melkac It's not fact, you just have a poorly compatible HDTV. Wii games look great through Wii U backwards compatibility and HDMI on my HDTV. Much better than the "SD" version in this video.
