MamaLuigi commented on Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition Coming T...:

I actually enjoyed the iOS "lite" version of P&Z (which was free btw) but it's obviously bare-bones unless you pay for the rest of the game, so now I have no choice but to get both games on 3DS in order to play the Mario edition. XP



MamaLuigi commented on Nintendo Dominated Japan During 2014, Despite ...:

@Quorthon tl;dr? Well not quite, but as I read it through that just seems like general bias in long paragraphs. You're going on about the Japanese market being "irrelevant" because it's small right? That's just like claiming ultimately Christianity wins because it makes up the world's religious majority compared to other religions... the Yen is still quite strong fyi, maybe not as much as the British pound, but compared to say, the American dollar, Euro, or even Russia's currency having inflated beyond measure it's just feeling the effects of other smaller island-based countries. Therefore even if Nintendo fails like the great Connectivity snafu of 2003 they can always pick up the following year.

And does a new Star Fox sound like Connectivity all over again? Didn't think so.



MamaLuigi commented on Nintendo Dominated Japan During 2014, Despite ...:

In spite of this, I bet there's a fair number of generally wealthy third party corporations who are angry that they lost money in 2014, likely on every platform they support including mobile, and no matter what are willing go the distance to blame Nintendo for everything like they always do.



MamaLuigi commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Um, just because Mercedes Benz DLC is present in MK8 doesn't mean you're REQUIRED to download it. Doesn't that apply to all other games featuring DLC as well, including Ubi's?

Seriously, big game company execs, they're no different from politicians when they say stupid things out loud.



MamaLuigi commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

This is what I was hoping for anyway. A big part of the Wii U's underperforming was due to the lack of titles that utilized all the Gamepad's technology. At least now we can anticipate NFP/Amiibo adding value to Smash 4 and MK8. :)



MamaLuigi commented on Final Fantasy Explorers Announced for 3DS:

Hopefully this will take a more inspired approach to multiplayer than the Crystal Chronicles series. Job selection is a nice start but the game also needs to be fun.

And yes though I'm still holding out for DQ7's release here I know Squenix love to take their sweet time in game translation, so this is nothing new. XDDD



MamaLuigi commented on Nintendo Looking To "Harvest" 3DS Success To A...:

Iwata's a very honest, straightforward man for a Nintendo president, so of course with the current Yen situation we're to expect some good things and some bad things.

I certainly would not worry about 3DS doing well. The obvious players being Tomodachi Life and the newest Pokemon remakes. And yes I'm curious about what those "new" 3rd party titles are.

As for Wii U, numbers were definitely below par last fiscal year but I refuse to believe things are only going to get worse from here on out. They've got Mario Kart and Smash Bros Wii U coming for crying out loud. The online matches are going to be so very packed.

And yet also there's so many indie titles coming out as well that Wii U sales won't skyrocket but they'll certainly get that added "oomph" they need.



MamaLuigi commented on Hyrule Warriors Set for Summer 2014 Release in...:

I HIGHLY doubt it will be Metroid Other M 2. Not sure if it will be Pokemon Conquest 3DS either. Personally I'm guessing Tecmo Koei will attempt to design their own version of Super Punch Out, complete with manga style visuals and a revamped fighting engine. XDDD



MamaLuigi commented on There's No Chance of Super NES Mortal Kombat T...:


You said it. All that button mashing made beating the AI enemies horrendously cheap... except when they were doing the same exact thing and kicking your ass. Sadly, that's what all the "challenge" in many fighting games boils down to. I'd rather stick with Smash Bros.



MamaLuigi commented on Curve Studios And Dakko Dakko Heap Praise On T...:

I'm ok with Bioshock and Portal 2 and all that, but I'd rather see smaller devs take on the big guns with more original software than have to put up with wave after wave of sequels and revisions made for the sake of profit.



MamaLuigi commented on Tomodachi Life is Big on Character, But Modest...:

I switched from 16GB to 32GB in my SD card slot last year and am still running out of space quicker than expected. You don't suppose they'll be making SD cards running 128 or 256 Gigs in the next two years, will they? :/



MamaLuigi commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:

Something seems VERY suspicious here... I know it's ok for a Sony guy to own a competing platform but making his Miiverse comments public like this perhaps means he's got talks underway for a kind of Nintendo joint venture.
