WhiteSpyderZero commented on Talking Point: Are E3 Conferences a Dying Breed?:

The problem with E3 Press Briefings, is they weren't originally intended for public consumption. They're for press and industry members only - It's only the advent of the Internet that has let non-industry folk see these events. Back in the pre-internet days, you wouldn't even see these briefings mentioned in magazines.

Because these events are now in the public eye, they've become spectacles and have lost sight of their purpose.



WhiteSpyderZero commented on Feature: The Making of Super Play Magazine:

Great work as always, Damien.
I completely missed out on Super Play (I had a subscription to TOTAL! at the time, and my parents wouldn't get me get another sub for another mag), something which I truly lament.

Anyone know a good place to get digital versions of old issues?



WhiteSpyderZero commented on Feature: Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symp...:

It was a truly magical evening, well worth the price of admission! I longed for some Zelda II/Link's Awakening love, but unfortunately I found myself wanting.

Still, words cannot convey the shock and awe displayed by the audience when Koji Kondo showed up!



WhiteSpyderZero commented on Nintendo Download: 13th October 2011 (Europe):

@Bass_X0 - That's the problem, if you are going to put one of these lesser titles on the VC, at least back it up with a "prestige" title like a Zelda, Mario or quality third party game. Nintendo don't seem to understand the concept of consistancy with their digital releases.

This is the perfect time for Nintendo to dazzle us with decent VC content, while we are waiting for worthwhile 3DS retail releases and for 3DSWare to take off.



WhiteSpyderZero commented on NES Ambassador Games Available in Europe Now:

Definitely can't complain about 10 free games :)
However I can complain about Nintendo's insistence on sneaking Balloon Fight and Ice Climbers into everything!

This will definitely give me an excuse to play through Zelda 1 & 2 again, although I'm pretty much done with Super Mario Bros. at this point.

Looking forward to the GBA games a lot more then these, so hopefully we'll get an ETA on those soon.



WhiteSpyderZero commented on Feature: 20 Years of the Super NES:

Definitely the pinnacle of Nintendo gaming - They got mostly everything right with the SNES; a phenomenal library consisting of a sublime balance between great first-party and third-party titles, one of the most comfortable and easy to user controllers around, great hardware (especially the brilliant Sony-produced sound chip) and 20 years of fond memories.

We could have done with a bit more RPG love in Europe, but at least we got Secret of Mana - Definately my favourite SNES game, and one of my favourite of all time.
