@crimsontadpoles "the story generally isn't that important in a Mario game, so could be difficult to get right in a film"
...just adapt an RPG

"live action wouldn't work for the Zelda world"
How so? I'd prefer if it were live action, it could be taken more seriously than a CGI movie.
Silly lighthearted properties like Mario, Kirby and...Earthbound would work on CGI, but not more serious ones like Fire Emblem, Zelda, F-Zero ("serious") or Metroid. They would have to shove a ton of stupid jokes and whatnot into trailers to attract children and their parents.



Melkac commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

You know, it would be nice to see them try something mature. And by "mature" I don't mind boobs, blood, big muscular space marines.
Whenever Nintendo tries to do mature, they usually succeed (Twilight Princess is the best selling Zelda title, Majora's Mask often being considered the best Zelda game by fans, Metroid as a whole since Super [sans that one game that doesn't exist], especially the Prime series, F-Zero GX...)

The kiddy artsy thing you're doing with Zelda is alright and all, evidenced by the reaction to the E3 2014 video, most people would've prefered a realistic game. Not the fourth cell-shaded game in a row.



Melkac commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federa...:

Yeah because people are ONLY complaining about Federation Force's art style...
They're not complaining about the art style, gameplay, and the fact that it's the only Metroid game we've had in almost a decade. Or the fact that it's a damn unnecessary spin-off.

Nope. You're completely right Reggie, you know what we spiny pink platypus want.
Now apologize for the horrible Direct just like mr. Iwata had the decency to do, you hack.



Melkac commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

Reasons I dislike this game:
-It's a metroid game in name only. It has nothing to do with Metroid, not even the art style or naming conventions (?) are similar (the ice monster thing is beast... ... ...while other species in the series have names such as Chozo, Tatori, Etecoon, and of course, Metroid).
-It's an spin-off. I'm sick and TIRED of Nintendo spin-offs, it's the reason so many people are tired of Mario already. Why do that to Zelda, Metroid and Animal Crossing?
-It's not a Wii U game. Not only does the game look worse than freaking Hunters, it's a multiplayer-focused game. Why not make it a console game?
-It's not a new IP. Would anyone really be mad if this game didn't carry the Metroid name? No.
Think of it this way: When Codename S.T.E.A.M. was announced, most people didn't really care about it. They thought the art style looked ugly so they decided not to buy it.
...Now imagine if that game was the new Advanced Wars.



Melkac commented on Mario Kart 8 Is Getting A Blisteringly Fast 20...:

@TheLobster Uh...the whole nintendo partnership program or whatever is a huge misunderstanding, if that's what you're referring to. One of the youtubers against it (I think it was ZackScottGaming or something?) started posting Nintendo videos again a few months ago, after not having posted anything in weeks.
There are a few more examples but yeah that's the most public one...
