Mk_II commented on Mario History: Super Mario World - 1991:

There is no contest really; this is the ultimate Mario platformer. Best looks, best soundtrack, precise controls and some very challenging level designs. I would happily trade all the others for this one game.



Mk_II commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. 2 - 1988:

I'll be the heretic and admit i never really liked SMB2. My first encounter with these games was thru the All Stars compilation and I was unaware of the Doki Doki origin. But SMB2 just didn't feel (or look) "right" compared to the other Mario platformers. And seriously... do people actually like Birdo?

IIRC Pachter was one of the "analysts" who repeatedly called for Iwata's resignation. Ah yes... “If he can’t make change happen, the company should find someone who can.” Sanctimonious little sh*t...

@kantaroo Actually, ACGL was always their official company name. Ultimate PlayThe Game was "merely" a label / publisher for their Spectrum releases. Hence the ACG key in Atic Atac!

BTW: in my little world, coder brother Chris Stamper is a demi-god. His work in the 8 bit home computer era cannot be overestimated. This award is long overdue.



Mk_II commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

Oh please... i'm starting to feel embarassed by all the negative butthurt spread by my fellow "fanboys". E3 was just fine with plenty of surprises and some interesting news. People should just stop acting like Nintendo owes them anything.

The Legend of Zelda: The Powerful Tongue

Mario Wheelchair Basketball 3
New Mario Bros. (Working Title)
The Legend of Zelda: The Naughty Bathtub
Wii Feeling U
Metroid: Brother-in-law Online

It's indeed extremely annoying but also makes them look very silly. And it's not even a very effective defense because once you've sussed them out, they are easy targets.

Translation: we thought we could build a Wii U version using the same codebase but we have discovered it would never perform decently unless we rewrite large parts of it to better suit the hardware. Given the economics of such an effort I'd say this will never happen.

All the more reson for Nintendo to give us a new F-Zero !



Mk_II commented on Reaction: There is a Positive Angle to Nintend...:

The extended period did NOT go more smoothly. I finally managed to get in a battle but got kicked out after about a minute. This also screwed up my connection and i had to reset my router. Then i couldn't get back in.
