@XFsWorld ''However I think this will be Nintendo's last handheld.''
@NImH ''I predict a console/handheld merging next gen.''

There's no sign that Nintendo will give up on making proprietary hardware and games that utilize them.
There's likely change coming up, but to which direction, no one knows.
The handheld/home console merging is an interesting idea. I would be excited to see a unified Nintendo platform.

I'll get the white standard model provided I can trade my 3DS XL for a reasonable price. I doubt I really -need- many of those "New" features, but I really like a lot of them - and it's always nice to get new (ahem) hardware!

It IS a stop-gap without a doubt, and I don't like it how many people have just got their 3DS's and a new one is announced, and soon an even newer one will be unveiled! (My guess is E3 2016 for the 3DS successor)
Still, it should extend the 3DS life a few years more.

To be honest, every feature of the New models "should've" been in the 3DS originally. Especially the better 3D effect and the c-stick.
So this feels a bit like a too late update. But I understand if some features weren't technically possible or were too expensive at the time of 3DS's release.

Hey, even if it is stop gap and will confuse some customers, it indicates what the next gen Ninty handheld will be.
It will probably have 3D (since they spent resources developing a better screen) and it will have four shoulder buttons and two circle pads along with NFC.

@FragRed Maybe the New 3DS exclusives will be eShop only?

Moshugan commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Wow! I'm liking the packs so far, and including other Nintendo franchises is just smart.
But they seem to be pricing the DLC in similar rate to the main game, so if the packs keep on comin', this game will end up costing near a $100. x___x
And including franchises such as F-Zero seem to indicate that no new games in that series is in the works. :(

Moshugan commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

It's impossible to pick one in such a bunch. :D

I love all of the NES and SNES iterations. They're all almost perfect games on their own right, wouldn't change anything about them.
SMB. is just pure platforming fun, pioneering the genre. The second one changes things in just the right ways and it has some incredibly memorable tunes! The third one perfected the original gameplay and fleshed out the franchise more. World felt like an organic next-gen evolution to SMB.3 and it oozed with personality.
I think the first Land is a great Gameboy iteration, but it's not that spectacular. And please, let's not talk about 6 Golden Coins... :p
Yoshi's Island could be considered as the first in a new series so I wouldn't vote for it, but that game is just my favorite as a piece of art.

The ''New'' SMB. series has some tight gameplay and I've enjoyed them quite a bit, but they're just so uninventively generic Mario that they don't really have a life of their own (and I'm guilty of thinking that it was the intention all along).

I think that the 3D games are the most inconsistent, but most of them are very lovable. SM64 was a genre shaping game and it's still awesome, although the old 3D hasn't aged too well. It really deserves a HD facelift.
Although by no means perfect, Sunshine has a special place in my heart. I has a leisurely and adventurous vibe to it.
But oh, Galaxy was sublime. At first I was upset by the loss of freedom in it's structure, but later on it showed itself to be a near perfect gameplay experience. Voted for that.
I really liked 3D Land and especially 3D World, but they're not as memorable or coherent as the earlier games.

@LDXD Well, you do have an admirably positive attitude, I'll give you that! ;D
For the developer's sake I hope they manage to produce something good and make a winning with it.
I too hope to become a dev in the near future, so I do have sympathy for other budding devs.

@LDXD ''no I'm not kidding, are you telling me you can review a game based on 1 simple screen shot?''

Dear LDXD,
Reviewing the comments in this thread, I think no one made that kind of a claim.
Everyone, including me, just said it ''looks'' bad, or ''seems'' like it's of a poor quality. There's actually no comments that include a statement that it's going to be or is a bad (or a good) game.

And I restate that yes, I think you can form your overall expectations from the THREE screenshots I found on the web and the one musical piece linked here. Omenapoika is also very correct.
And I restate: It looks horrendous.
But heck, who knows, even if it ends up looking and sounding like this, then maybe the game mechanics are still going to be sublime!
But I'm highly doubtful...

@LDXD ''lots of great indie games''
I agree completely! But there's an alarming number of really bad ones too.
''You don't like kick starter or indies don't support it/them its that simple''
Believe me, I won't support them. But I do support those that I like. But I've been burned before, especially with Steam's Early Access.
''And enlighten me on how you can tell how good a game is by looking at one screen shot?''
Are you kidding me?

So far it looks and sounds like a homebrewn freeware PC game. Something someone would make in their basement with a game maker program and Fruity Loops.
Where is the Nintendo quality control? And developer pride?
I would be ashamed to announce a game this early in development, let alone attempt to publish a game with this low production quality.

Good riddance, now I'm angry.
Where is the game industry going, with all of these ''indie'' devs with their no-talent garbage trying to grab a slice of the indie-pie, and all of these sad ''early access'' games which on the most part are left forgotten?!
I actually thought Kickstarter was a good thing, but there's so many would-be's trying to trade our money for good old crap.

Moshugan commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I voted for Majora's Mask, because I LOOOVE it's design, gameplay ideas and strong atmosphere!
But I do think Ocarina of Time deserves the top spot, because it brought the most new things to the series of all the games and it's such a strong game as a whole. It's also the one I had most fun playing and exploring. :)
Worthy mentions are Link's Awakening because it perfected the 2D formula and it has such good music and atmosphere, and Wind Waker because of it's amazing artistry in the graphics and music!

Moshugan commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@denpa-ben ''Why are the 2 Twilight Princess games lumped together? That doesn't really seem fair. They are not the same game.''

I agree!! The Wii version is quite different from the GC version. They should've been separately listed on the same basis that the other remakes and versions are.

Moshugan commented on Grezzo Seeks New Employees Asking If They Want...:

Not all remake demands are equal.
It's reasonable to remake a game when it's hard to play satisfactorily with current hardware and there's substantial demand. Both of which apply to MM.
The Wii VC version is off-putting to look at. The framerate is awful! And it has to be played in Wii mode which is unfortunate.
For these reasons it's totally valid to ask for a polished and well-running version on the portable console.
Early 3D games in general have not aged well. I hope Mario 64 will get an HD makeover.

Demanding HD re-releases of Wii games on the other hand is quite unnecessary.

Moshugan commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

The Zelda reveal was PERFECT.
There was just enough to fuel massive speculation and get our inner children really imagining! It just hinted at so many features in the game without making anything explicit.
I can't wait!!

Moshugan commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

Well, I for one have had the same kinda frustration with Wii/Wii U's controller options as @Kirk :p
It's clear that few things are "mandatory" but simple convenience and vanity has made me buy a lot of Wii equipment.
I have three regular Wiimotes, two Motionplus dongles, one official Motionplus mote and a third party motionplus mote, and of course three nunchucks. Then I have one original classic controller and one classic controller pro. (I also have four Cube controllers since the previous gen) I've managed to avoid the new Pro Controller.
That's a lot of money!
I love having different kinda ways to play but it's not always practical or economical.

It's great if you're given an option to use either motion or buttons, motes or pads, but some games do require a few additions controllers.
For example, it's impossible to play many VC games in Wii mode without a mote and classic controller.
It's great that on Wii U, even a single Wiimote can be used for SNES VC etc. so they're going in the right direction imo.
If only Wii U equipment could be used in Wii mode...

Moshugan commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

Oh man, that reveal in the trailer was so sexy!
This is really great! I have four good condition GC controllers. Like everyone, I just hope for large support for this in other games.

About the GC controller itself...
I love it's form, the button layout and the main stick. So perfect!
The D-pad is too small, and for that, too imprecise. The C-stick is kinda bad for 1st person shooters, but decent in most games. And the Z-button is awkwardly small. If they'd make the C-stick more loose and wide, the D-pad a bit bigger and the Z-button bigger (and add another one), then it would be "the perfect controller".
