SushiGummy commented on Feature: What We Want to See in SNES Remix:

Now that it's actually on the Virtual Console, it's gotta be EarthBound.

"Take $64 from the ATM and buy a new bat!"
"Order a pizza!"
"Defeat the Kraken!"

Super Mario RPG would be pretty cool too.

SushiGummy commented on Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell Claims Nintendo "...:

I can never really see these (very common) arguments eye-to-eye. It's like saying the comedy movie genre is dying because most movies already have jokes in them. In the end, it all comes down to personal preference, which is something that will never collectively form into one single behavior.

I understand, people have phones, and phones have games. This alone does not make a competition, though. Phones have the impressive ability to emulate tools, but they should be approached like tools of a pocket knife, rather than the tools themselves.

An iPhone can be a watch, but not the best watch. It can be a camera, but not the best camera. I hate wearing watches, so my phone will probably tell me the time for years to come. On the other hand, for someone who doesn't mind wearing watches, a watch may be the better choice for them. It allows for quicker access to the time, and is more reliable in terms of battery life; a watch's battery won't drain when your phone's does. On the other hand, I would rather use a physical notepad than the one installed on my phone, for several reasons: I hate using a touch screen keyboard, a real notepad doesn't run on battery, and I have more flexibility when taking notes (drawing pictures/symbols, for example). Other people may not need to take notes the same way I do, in which case a phone's notepad might be enough.

I have a phone with games on it. I think it's probably safe to say that most people with DSs and 3DSs have phones with games on them. I didn't just stumble into a GameStop one day and accidentally buy a 3DS. I didn't look at my phone's store later and say "Oh whoops, shouldn't have bought that 3DS." I have a 3DS for a reason, and it's the same reason I have a notepad and people still have watches. Because sometimes you need a dedicated tool, and nobody makes hardware more dedicated to gaming than Nintendo does.

SushiGummy commented on A World of Keflings Is Migrating To Wii U eSho...:

Dear Microsoft,

We have your precious Keflings hostage, as you may have been able to tell by the attached photograph. If you ever expect to see them again, you will return Banjo-Kazooie to us by the end of the week. These terms will not be negotiated.

Regards,
Nintendo

SushiGummy commented on Review: Balloon Fight (Wii U eShop / NES):

I have to disagree with this one. I first played Balloon Fight 10 years ago on Animal Crossing and to this day it's still one of my favorite NES games.

There's also a fair bit of replayability if you take advantage of the different modes available (Balloon Trip, 2-player). Could use a bit more variety, but I certainly wouldn't say it's aged badly.

SushiGummy commented on Nintendo Comes Out On Top In Consumer Experien...:

@ngamer155
Comparably, the sticker tape on my Sackboy voucher for ModNation Racers tore some of the code away while I was scratching it. Sony wanted me to fax them a copy of the torn voucher, my ModNation receipt, and a bunch of my PSN information in order to 'look into it.'

Then I remembered I don't like ModNation Racers and I played Mario Kart instead.

SushiGummy commented on Satoru Iwata Says That Wii U is "Selling Stead...:

Not really surprising. It's not as if Nintendo particularly needs to match the Wii's sales right now. Not sure why people would set the Wii as the standard, since it released under completely different circumstances.

Look at it this way: They've got a head start on the next generation, and there really isn't any major competition for the Wii U right now. They're not even advertising it as much as they did with the Wii. I don't really think they're expecting or pushing for huge sales at the moment. I think they're holding their guns for when they'll need them.

I mean, what's the point of pushing sales right now if there aren't even any other companies getting in the way?

SushiGummy commented on Miyamoto Puzzled As To Why Anyone Would Want A...:

"It would appear that Miyamoto feels the franchise is unable to offer anything new"

I don't think that's what he was trying to say. When he asked "What do you want that we haven’t done before?" I think he was moreover wondering what kinds of new things fans would like to see if there were a potential sequel.

After all, most Nintendo franchises add some new and unique mechanic for each game, what would the next F-Zero have?
