RantingThespian commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

I will be very disappointed if it turns out to be another 3DS game. 3D World was great, but it wasn't that innovative, and didn't show off all that the Wii U can do.

This better be a new 3D Mario game like SM64, Sunshine, or the Galaxy games.

Armikrog. is well on its way to the Wii U (and of course PC) this year.

The crew is currently hard at work building sets and recording all the stop motion animation for the game. Pencil Test Studios (Ed, Mike, Lu, and the rest) has already created the whole game in "Pencil Test" form. Music is currently being written by Terry S Taylor, and audio recording with all the actors will be happening in about a month.

RantingThespian commented on Review: Quake II (Nintendo 64):

I love Quake 1, 2, and 3. But, the N64 versions were a let down. They just can't compare to the PC versions. I'd rather play Goldeneye, Turok 2, Turok 3, or Perfect Dark.

Everything from Mega Man to X to Power Battle to Battle & Chase to Zero to ZX to Battle Network to Star Force to Legends to Soccer to Battle & Chase to the Game Boy titles and anything I missed in one collection PLEASE!

Oh, and a new game would be nice.

@CorporalPegasus I have nothing against mobile games. Heck, I am typing this on my iPad (which has many games on it, as so does my android phone and tablet)

What I don't like is the idea that Nintendo porting games that were designed with controls that can't be replicated with a touch screen (Capcom and Sega have tried . . . and it is not the same). I also don't like the idea of Nintendo using its major brands and watering them down just for quick mobile games (which is why I dislike the Rayman games for mobile).

I am against Nintendo giving into the naysayers, ruining their amazing games just to make a few bucks on mobile devices, only to have their games then forgotten 2 months later.

RantingThespian commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

Basically Bayonetta 2 was not going to happen. So Nintendo swooped in and saved the day. So if it wasn't for Nintendo and the Wii U, Bayonetta 2 wouldn't exist.

I have never played the original Bayonetta, but I am going to buy Bayonetta 2 immediately when it comes out.

Yeah, the older series is a bit . . . dated. It's like comparing Star Trek and Star Trek: the Next Generation. However, the actors playing the Doctor are much better than the actor who played Kirk (I disliked Shatner in the series, but I learned to love him in the movies).

You may not want to go back to the very beginning of Doctor Who when revisiting the classics. The old series really hit it's stride with the 3rd, 4th, and 5th Doctors. Sadly, the series started to take a nosedive during the 6th Doctor's era. I do not blame Colin Baker (the 6th Doctor), but I blame the BBC. The head of the BBC at that time hated Doctor Who, and was looking for ways to get it off the air. It started to redeem itself with the 7th Doctor's last year . . . but then it got the axe. The TV movie in 1996 was alright (the Master's portrayal I think wasn't handled well), but Paul McGann did a wonderful job as the Doctor. Sadly his only other screen time was on the mini episode that was made for the 50th Anniversary. However, he's been doing audio stories as the 8th Doctor for years (which he is still doing).

When it came back in 2005, I was relieved that they weren't "rebooting" it. They were just continuing it. The show reboots itself every 4-5 years, anyways. New Doctor, new companions, new story arcs. It's survived so long because of how it can change and adapt with the times, and the central character keeps changing.

I could keep talking about Doctor Who . . . but I'll stop for now. :-P

I'd only like WaLuigi as a playable character so I could beat him up over and over and over again.

I'm sorry, but other than the Mario Kart DS track (WaLuigi Pinball) and how he is treated in the Stupid Mario Bros. youtube series, I hate his character. The name, the look, the voice, I hate it. He's an insult to both Luigi and Wario.

Sorry, but it's just how I feel.

To be honest that last scene with Tennant always chokes me up. I'm actually a huge Doctor Who fan, and not just of the new series. I started with watching reruns of the show on PBS in the 90s (thanks to my mom). Tennant is actually tied for my favorite incarnation of the Doctor with Tom Baker's 4th Doctor.

I am sure you will love Matt Smith's Doctor, he's my 3rd favorite (with Peter Davison's 5th Doctor being my 2nd). It was really sad to see him go last X-Mas, but I am excited to see what Peter Capaldi (a life long Who fan, like Tennant) will do with the character.

Hey, if you ever want to talk about Doctor Who, I'm always up for it.
