SSSocky commented on Review: Mario Tennis (3DS eShop):

To me this game is a 9 and Mario Golf for the GBC is a 10. I have both original carts somewhere. Mario Golf was a longer and slightly more rewarding experience partly due to the nature of the sport. I agree with Blue_Yoshi that not playing as Mario and Co. was genius and a crying shame that the tradition has not been carried on for the 3DS versions. I won't be buying them as a result. It is so much more rewarding to beat Mario at his own game than play as him.

It is also a poor show on Nintendo's part that the multiplayer has been excised.



SSSocky commented on Soapbox: Mobile And Tablet Gaming Is Creating ...:

I'm not sure about this article. No doubt games with traditional controls cannot be played skillfully on tablets. However I would say there are many games on mobile devices requiring thought and skill without needing the dexterity of manipulating a gamepad. There are lots of adventure games (Monkey Island series, The Walking Dead etc.) and strategy games (Xcom, Frozen Synapse etc.) on these platforms. Not to mention stuff like Word games (e.g Letterpress) and most RPG's could easily be controlled via touchscreen.
