OneBagTravel commented on Minecraft: Story Mode is Heading to Wii U:

I don't own Minecraft in any form but I could see myself actually throwing down cash for a Wii U version. No idea why they've held out this long. I know Microsoft owns them etc. Just seems silly to not "take my money".



OneBagTravel commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

Well owning the figures is part of the appeal. So if someone wnats to just unlock everything in their games then I guess they're going to be able to. But they won't have the actual figures. I imagine this won't put much of a dent on Nintendo's income. Their low stock is already doing that



OneBagTravel commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

He messed up, he knows it and he's taking responsibility for it. Nintendo is a company that needs to protect it's name and has policies in place about this kind of stuff.

It's unfortunate that this happened but he'll find another job people.



OneBagTravel commented on Mario Memories: How Super Mario Land Made Me A...:

I got this the year the Gameboy came out for Christmas. I remember playing it thinking "hmm this is a weird mario game" but after mastering the controls I was sucked in. It's still impressive to see a mobile gaming device churn out that quality of gameplay back in 89. And then Super Mario Land 2 came out later and blew this one out of the water. Impressive stuff.



OneBagTravel commented on Mario Memories: Being Taken To A New World In ...:

Everyone praises the 2nd one but the first was such a huge boost in the 3D platforming genre. Most of the levels were totally out of the box thinking. I'm not holding my breath but I hope Nintendo does an HD remake similar to what they did with Wind Waker.



OneBagTravel commented on Editorial: Paper Mario is 15 Years Old Today, ...:

Always felt these games had way too much dialog even by JRPG standards.

I'm 2/3 the way through Dream Team and they're STILL releasing new mechanics which means a constant flow of tutorial moments. You never really feel like you've mastered the games even close to the end.



OneBagTravel commented on Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay...:

With games like Bastion making it out relatively on time with a smaller team, it makes me wonder what these people are doing with the time they have. I follow a lot of indy dev teams and this isn't uncommon but having delay after delay isn't as common as you might think. I'm not sure what's going on behind the scenes but I just get the impression that things aren't being managed well.



OneBagTravel commented on Masahiro Sakurai Tackles Criticisms of Bonus F...:

I don't get his logic though. He says he feels goofy playing the mechanic and even says he doesn't get the fascination with dating sims... yet there it is, in the game. Is this in the game because it was a check box from upper management or does he really see the value behind it? Cramming a game full of mini game mechanics is exactly what ruined the Assassins Creed series.



OneBagTravel commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

Here's one point he can't argue, there are games out for the Wii VCs right now, perfectly translated and ready to show up on the Wii U VC eshop... yet they aren't doing anything about it. So I ask again, why do you hate money Nintendo?
