@MasterWario
Take a look at my previous comment. You probably own a smartphone. Really, wouldn't it be SIMPLER to just tap a "nintendo button" that replicates the 3ds home screen on your phone? All you would need is a "3ds grip" your phone attaches to with a second screen and buttons. While that may be a bit pricey, it would be cheaper than a 3ds, and then everyone saves money.
And , most phones are more powerful and have a better display than a 3ds, so that's a plus.

I partly agree with you, however I don't think Nintendo should just go 3rd party. They would be viewed as a failure like when Sega did. Rather, stay in the competition. They can even release their own "handheld" or "console", because , what are the reasons people would prefer a dedicated system? Controller, UI , dedicated online shop, that kind of thing. Most of those could be achieved digitally on a phone.
Take the ps vita for example (only because it is more in the shape of a phone than the 3ds). Couldnt the "ps vita" be achieved with a high quality grip for your phone that had a back touch pad, that came with a download of the ps vita UI? And then, when you want some console games , you just slip your phone into a cradle hooked to your tv and use a downloaded ps4 interface. All you would need is a controller, and you've got an all in one console that saves Sony the cost of producing machines and saves you the cost of buying them.

Exactly. If nintendo released all their handheld games on smartphone, they wouldn't really need a dedicated device anymore. And the smartphone would probably be more powerful too. It saves Nintendo so much mine, and WHAT would be the downside?
and Quality wouldn't be an issue if the game is identical to what they release on 3ds.

You say that Nintendo doesn't care about their fans because they left the Wii u to die, and because they neglect series that don't sell well. Don't you think maybe that's BECAUSE they still want to save the Wii u ? They're making Mario and Zelda games because that's what attracts people to Nintendo systems. I would even argue that that's more for the fans than not. Just look at the hype surrounding the new Zelda. Yes, there are some fans who would prefer a new f-zero, or kid icarus, but the majority of the fans would prefer Zelda. They EXPECT Zelda. Imagine if Nintendo released a fzero for the Wii u but no Zelda. Fans would panic and complain, and say that Nintendo have "forgotten" the series (Just look at metroid for proof of that. It's only been 4 or so years and people are already saying that it's "neglected" like you did) Do really, Nintendo is acually keeping the fans happy by releasing a Zelda every generation. More fans like it, as reflected in the sales figures. Then, when that's covered , they can deliver, say, a new Star Fox. The way I see it Nintendo haven't forgotten the Wii u at all, they're actually doing a pretty good job keeping the dedicated fans pleased.(now virtual console, that's a different story).
Anyway, about the actual article, I've been doing a lot of thinking about this, and my question to the people panicking about this is: what would be the actual DOWNSIDE of Nintendo DID release all of their 3Ds/future handheld games on phones as well? What's ONE?

The title seems a bit misleading. Reading the quote he's saying that he "would love to have Call of Duty on our platform" and "I would love to have any of the big blockbuster, multi-platform titles".
But then he says that if he had to choose, he would rather Nintendo get their exclusives than the multi-platform titles, so that Nintendo could provide a different experience, instead of a different version of the same thing.

Of_Folsense commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

There could be a price cut. OR there could be a highly advertised sale during the Christmas season.
Because anybody who's going to buy one anytime soon would buy it then, and then there can be a price cut mid/later next year, when the reason for the price cut would be the regular reduction of price as the console gets older, instead of "because Microsoft did it".
EDIT: Reading closer instead of skimming, I see that this is what Microsoft is doing, actually. I thought we were talking permanent price reductions. Oops.

I had a gbc game simply called mickey's racing or something like that. I don't know how many have played or remember that game but it's is one of my favorite racers ever, despite the limited technology of gbc. It was kind of a sim/kart racer if i remember corectly. I had as much fun with that old game as any mario kart.

This is awesome! Plus its another ad for MK8, which it needs. I think the people saying it looks out of place have convinced themselves in their minds that it does. Try imagining a couple spikes on the hood and see if that helps.

@ikki5
Well then it's really a question of how smart Nintendo is. After that Smash Bros direct, I think Nintendo are really taking this game seriously. If its released before the holiday, you can be pleasantly surprised. If it doesn't release until 2015, I'll be surprised, but I won't be complaining. Complaining about a company "lying" (like you seem to be doing about VC) makes no sense to me. But I won't get into that.
And about the VC, cheer up! It was really good for a month up until last week, but more GBA games are coming soon, so hopefully it will improve again then.

Of_Folsense commented on Month Of Kirby: Minigame Mania:

The GBA game "Nightmare in dreamland" had some good minigames and modes. It had a racing minigame, one that had something to do with bombs, and the best version of quick draw. Those are my favorites.

The comments for this are really sad. The guy does an awesome interview for this site and people insult him? Maybe before discussing how arrogant Mew2King sounds you should be thinking of how mean some of the comments you're posting come across.

To those who are saying that this list is disappointing or too short, these are the "biggest games" coming to Wii U, not all the games coming. If none of these appeal to you, there's still a bunch more games coming this year. There's really no need to be so pessimistic.
Anyway, I'm glad Project Cars was on this list. It deserves it.

Of_Folsense commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

Has never really been a problem for me. Pretty much every missing Nintendo game soundtrack is on Youtube, so I download them from Youtube and then edit/cut them as needed myself, and then compile them into a soundtrack in iTunes. Takes a couple hours per soundtrack.

I hope they use this for games. To me it sounds like some crazy virtual reality stuff. It sure would be cool if they could "put you in the game". That's what this kind of sounds line, with the "healthy" stuff and all. In a platformer, you could really lose some weight.

Why is the comment section the massive bashing of EA? It was funny the first couple of times, but really? Maybe this is why EA doesn't release games on Nintendo platforms. Apparently all the fans hate EA.

At least he says positive things about Nintendo. Lying or not, at least they're not "dead to him". It will be much easier to revive they're relationship if he thinks they're a "great partner".
