MamaLuigi commented on Nintendo Seeks Improvement at E3 2016, Though ...:

Fans are always going to complain about one little thing at e3. Wind Waker was arguably a better showing at e3 2002 than that "connectivity" disaster of e3 2003, but still suffered annoying backlash because it's wasn't anything like the "mature" Zelda demo shown at Spaceworld 2000.



MamaLuigi commented on Mercenaries Saga 2 Is The Closest You'll Get T...:

"Final Fantasy Tactics on 3DS" huh? Well, there are a lot of talented artists and musicians in Japan who want to be just like the big guys, yet they can't even make a decent yen, very much like job availability in the US, UK and elswhere, so filling in a void on 3DS would be most logical. :)



MamaLuigi commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Nobody's really going to have an opinion of games from e3 reveals. Xenoblade ended up as my favorite game on the poll simply because they revealed it early and I know pretty much everything about it already from trailers, PLUS there's a valid release window. But ironically, the same kinds of people who got Xeno X first when they wanted Zelda Wii U... they got Skyward Sword first back in 2011 when they demanded the first Xeno game, so the tables have kind of turned. As I keep saying, you guys asked for it.



MamaLuigi commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

This is likely to be both the best AND worst thing to come out of a new Metroid Prime reveal at e3. I mean it's not a super epic HD mature type of Metroid game, but as a spinoff it looks to be a fun one, and leagues better than Hunters. Plus even if people hate the look of the game they'll buy it when it comes out... same thing happened to Wind Waker.



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.
