Marshi commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

@SahashraLA I could not have put that better myself. I am constantly moaning and wanting nintendo to make a new star fox,a new metroid. But to be fair I bought star fox 64 3ds and metroid other m and loved them too.
I really think the gaming industry is struggling and WE are the ones to blame. I dont blame capcom for making resi 6. I dont blame activision for making cod. Frankly they could care less what we moan about as long as they make money,which they do. But if devs keep on listening to hardcore fanboys they will bury themselves in a corner they cant get out of. Oh wait ive just described the wiiu! Its a hypocritical industry now where the only way to make money seems to be to make the same old game on an annual basis. And the very same fanboys that created this mess are the first ones to cry that nintendo are for casuals and dont make new ip's anymore

Resident evil 5 split fans down the middle. Some wanted more online action gunplay,some wanted a return to the horror routes and a whole lot wanted more story on leon and wesker. As a result we got resi 6 was an amalgamation of all of the above. So in what way is my comparison ridiculous?

Ken lobb is so right its almos. Painful to see how many people will disagree with his view. Let me put it into perspective for any doubters : if you listen to fans all the time you get Games like Resident evil 6. Nuff said

Marshi commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

Hey Nintendo life,and Thomas. This is probs completely untrue,but an ubisoft rep at a game store said he heard a rumour about nintendo pulling out of the uk market? I didnt believe this for a secone but could I ask if you guys have heard anything similar? May be worthy of an investigation...

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

@redsoul91 Argh,its frustrating but I agree with you. Which is why I was forthcoming about my (now ex)housemates indescretions in the hope as good customer service they would give me the benefit of the doubt. I even said they could watch my profile like a hawk and if the saw anything even slightly against code of conduct then they could ban my profile. But to ban my entire wiiu console is ott of the highest degree. Its like finding there are terrorists living somewhere in a city so to neatralise the threat just nuke the entire city

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

Id love to use miiverse,but through no fault of my own (it was a house mate misbehaving on a SEPARATE profile) my entire wiiu console is banned forever from miiverse. Ive stamped my feet and complained and even threatened legal action if my profile is not reinstated but they just will not budge. Whats hilarious for all the wrong reasons is that the mods who ban you are not an official part of nintendo. The nintendo customer service agent even said,and I quote: "id love to reinstate your profile and I would if I had the power to do so but its not up to us",this was a NINTENDO EMPLOYEE WHO DEALS WITH CUSTOMER COMPLAINTS! Ridiculous and the whole ordeal has broken some of the love I have for wiiu.

As a side note I think its genuinely hilarious that you cant even say as much as "boobs" on miiverse. Yet ps4 has live broadcasted sex shows that anyone can see and even do themselves if the have the camera...

Marshi commented on Next-Generation Visual Novel Nero Confirmed Fo...:

Urgh I wish people would stop with the "i want games not-insert non game content here-". Im just happy wiiu is getting a diverse range of software. Its really something that is overlooked I think. If you want your countless shooters and third person adventures then buy a ps4 or xbone. Sure I want games just like anyone else,but having the option of buying awesome indie games,visual novels and lifestyle software like wii fit u and those overlooked wiiu panorama view experiences just add to my overall enjoyment of my wiiu

Marshi commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

Hope: Super mario universe for wiiu utilising the gamepad in unique ways and creating massive open worlds to explore. Like a kind of skyrim with mario in it!

Reality: Its super mario 3d land 2 for the 3ds. More of the same 3d that plays like a 2d mario adventure that will sell loads but be about as inotative as cod

I hate been cynical...

Marshi commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I think the staggered release makes sound business sense. Think of this as nintendo's metal gear solid ground zeroes. A taster for the full smash experience. Plus with updated graphics and more content for the wiiu version it will be very tempting to fans. Which after purchasing the 3ds version either you will be!

Please please please release this for the wiiu monolith! Heck even just rerelease the wii version with a repackaged "works on wiiu" logo on it,as the game is so hard to find and I sold my copy like a fool. One of the best rpg's ever

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

@element187 I think you will be right. But what a crappy attitude for nintendo to have if thats the case! What about the people who have never played a smash bros game? What about all the potential new fans to a nintendo system? I hope you are wrong,but its a fools hope!

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

While I voted for "nothing this week" im impressed with the turnaround the wiiu eshop is getting. A decent hd update to a great 3ds game,2 WORTHY vc games and a retail release no less. I hope nintendo keeps up the momentum and gives us a smash demo after the direct

Marshi commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Id buy ANY album featuring remixed or orchestrated video game music and I mean buy. Id pay good money for a cd or download. Its such an underappreciated genre with things like Zelda's 25th aniversary orchestra proving how amazing it can sound

Marshi commented on Review: Metroid Fusion (Wii U eShop / Game Boy...:

Okay nintendo looks down at nintendo like a father whos just seen his son do something great for the first time you're onto something great here. Look at all these positive comments. I think for alot of people you have reinvigorated peoples hope for the wiiu. Keep this going with other classics like Zero mission,golden sun 2 and mario and luigi partners in time. Then increase momentum with another vc platform (gamecube,please gamecube!) and I promise your wiiu platform will garner much more ofa positive reputation as an awesome system pats nintendo on the shoulder

Marshi commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Endlessly About Mario ...:

@hylianhalcyon I second that, but I will add that also like the wii,the hardware was built to work a zelda game. With wii,we got the wiimote,and was shown its effectiveness in wiisports and wiisports resort. Later we got zelda skyward sword which features an amalgomation of all the best points of wiisports(1-1sword use,archery etc). So its pretty safe to assume with wiius nintendo land,it was a test built to see how people react to the mechanics there. In other words id be surprised if zelda wiiu dosnt have the same archery mechanics and other features ripped from nintendo lands minigames

Marshi commented on Video: Check Out The Mario Kart 8 Visual Upgra...:

@JohnRedcorn Its not that graphics are not important,they are. Just that graphics seem to be used more and more in whats determined as "better" . Eg. "wiiu isnt next gen because ps4/xbone look better" or even "ps4 is better than xbone because its graphics are better". There are so many gamers that only care about how a game looks and not how it plays nowadays,you only have to look at the unbelievably average Crysis series to see that.

At least with mario kart 8 nintendo owners can prove to these gamers that wiiu is next gen as far as these gamers see it. Only we can say with some degree of certainty that it will play fantastic too

Marshi commented on Video: What Could The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward...:

@RoomB31 could not agree more! Nintendo are insane sometimes. Why on earth is there no gc vc when so many people want it? I personally would be happy to pay upwards of £20 for games like f zero gx and eternal darkness. Id at the very least like an explanation as to why nintendo arent doing it. Gb advance vc is a step in the right direction though so heres hoping

Marshi commented on Mario Party: Island Tour Makes Japanese Chart ...:

Okay I know im in the wrong camp but bear with me and it'll make sense: Im actually really pleased the ps vita is doing well. Its an awesome machine with amazing and STILL massively untapped potential. The vitas only problem is that the software for it is either watered down ports or retro experiences weve played and payed time and again for. Sound familiar? Exactly like the wiiu is. If the vita starts selling more,maybe some great exclusives will arrive,thus creating more sales and then MAYBE nintendo will take note and make some great exclusives for the wiiu

Marshi commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

Well this is more like it! At least 2 or 3 new vc games that have never seen the light outside of gba(unless you werea 3ds ambassador) per week starting next week. Please please PLEASE Keep the momentum going nintendo. Then in a few moth id love another vc console,like maybe n64,dreamcast or (hope among hope) gamecube to be announced

Marshi commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

I think everyone will download mariokart. And 3 downloads rather than 2 is an improvement on previous weeks. But we need more snes and n64 and dreamcast and megadrive and neo geo please nintendo. It was done for the wii so there is no reason this should be left out of wiiu

Marshi commented on Super Mario Kart Record Holder Sami Cetin Give...:

@LetsGoRetro Your points are sound and valid mate. However,dumping 100's of pounds/dollars on a product which is then noted by its developers to not be supported anymore would be suicide for nintendo. They simply HAVE to support the wiiu for a further 2 years at least or they will lose trust. And trust,despite how you made it sound,is vital in business. Wiiu isnt selling BECAUSE of that lack of trust or faith from fans and critics alike.so if nintendo turned round and admitted failiure.more trust and faith and thus sales would be lost.

All ninty can do is ride the storm and come back fighting with a more aggressive price point,further reveals of new AND long unused franchises and much much better marketing

@Peach64 Perfect comment! I second that! Though I do wish game devs would stretch out that olive branch and at least give us the same experience other consoles get. Releasing games with missing dlc and/or features that every other version has helps no one

Marshi commented on Expect Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty To Cost Around ...:

Thing is. Abes oddysee IS a AAA title,so to me its worth the punt,just because its digital dosnt mean its a simple indie game.
Look at it like this,if they remade metal gear solid 1 for wiiu,using the engine and graphics of mgs 4. Would you expect to pay £10/$15 for it? Ofcouse not. Heck youd expect to pay full price! So oddworld new and tasty is,as the say,reasuringly expensive. Count me in.

Ps. WHEN ARE WE GETTING STRANGERS WRATH?! Cmon Lorne spill the beans!

Marshi commented on Big Red Button Explains Its Sonic Boom Charact...:

Ah people never do like change do they? Its those same people that cried in outrage at windwakers look. Change is GOOD guys! Especially when there has been several games with the same old designs,having something fresh and new is great. My son is nearly 4,and the first thing he said upon seeing the sonic boom trailer is "daddy,i want a knuckles toy!". People who hate the new designs need to take a step back and ask themselves if they want original content,or maybe just go back and play the original games. Personally id be curious to see what these "wackier" designs looked like

Im gettin bored of saying this every week...WHERE ARE ALL THE GAMES? Where is Strangers wrath? Where is gamecube vc?dreamcast vc? Heck WHY ARE WE GETTING 2 NES GAMES THAT ALREADY CAN BE BOUGHT ON THE WII? Why arent we getting big handfuls of snes,megadrive neogeo and n64 games on wiiu vc? The wii u e shop is crap

Marshi commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@Jayvir I was going to write exactly that. Men in games are usually depicted as super men with massive upper bodies and an attitude of violence in mind. So why dont guys feel offended? Some women just get way to defensive. A girl friend of mine even looked at senren kagura and said it felt empowering to her having these "sexy anime girls"(her words not mine) as the protagonists of the game.

People just get way too pc nowadays!
