Remakes/Remasters can be good, but at the same time, it shouldn't be substitutes for new games or new big entries in series. Wii U Virtual Console should also have GameCube games and more N64 and Wii games.

And no more locking content behind amiibo. I'm not interested in amiibo.



Yellowkoopa commented on Talking Point: Learning Lessons From the Past ...:

Nintendo needs to consistently have games coming to their new console throughout the year and no game droughts. They need to have a great launch. They also need to have great online support for their multiplayer games and maybe even some online support for multiplayer Virtual Console games. Have online purchases tied to your account. New game franchises along with the returning franchises, no Amiibo BS, consistent controller support, consistent VC releases, Cross Buy for VC, Lan Support, and have plenty of data storage on the console.

Of course Nintendo has to prove that they learned from all of the mistakes they have done the past years and actually do something about it, or else they will just repeat the same mistakes and things will get really bad for Nintendo.



Yellowkoopa commented on Review: Mario Kart 64 (Wii U eShop / N64):

I really wish they went with 3D models for the characters instead of those awful 2D sprites.
This game is okay. MK64 does have some good tracks and battle arenas, but there's barely anything to unlock and the items feel awkward to use at times. This game can still be fun in multiplayer, but far from the best Mario Kart, though, IMO



Yellowkoopa commented on Talking Point: The Allure of the Virtual Conso...:

Well, I'm guessing that the Wii U e-shop's library will continue with the NX, so they won't have to start over with VC releases. They should have just continued the Wii VC library on the Wii U. Hopefully, VC games will finally be tied to an account, rather than the console. They should also lower the prices for VC games, since some of them are overpriced for what they are.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Hi...:

The game does have many characters, which is a step up from the previous games. (Koopa Troopa, Morton, Lemmy, Iggy, Big the Cat, Storm the Ablatross, Charmy Bee, Big the Cat and part of the Deadly Six are missing from the roster. They might be only on the Wii U version, but I doubt it). If the gameplay is improved and the reviews are good, I might consider buying this.



Yellowkoopa commented on Editorial: Let's Make 2016 a Year of Nintendo ...:

I'm keeping my hopes low for this year, especially for the Wii U. I doubt the Wii U will be getting much else new things for it and the 3DS will slowly stop getting games.
As for the NX, I'm hoping the reveal will actually focus on the system itself and not a "special" controller. I guess we will have to wait and see how the NX will turn out and if Nintendo will learn from last year and actually improve things.



Yellowkoopa commented on Crush 40 Facebook Post, Since Deleted, Points ...:

Sonic Generations was great, so if they do a game similar to that, I'm sure the 25th anniversary game will be great, too. (If Sega is even making a huge sonic game this year).
I have doubts that it will be on Wii U and it will instead be for the PS4 and Xbox One.



Yellowkoopa commented on Feature: Our Staff's Hopes and Dreams for Nint...:

Hopefully Starfox will have some great local and online multiplayer. I would like to see a proper Paper Mario game return to the turn based style like the first two games. And I hope the NX is actually something great and they show off the console itself and not the controller. I guess we will have to wait and see.
I'm not really expecting much out of the Wii U and 3DS, since it looks like Nintendo is phasing both out.



Yellowkoopa commented on Talking Point: 2015 - A Peculiar Year of New, ...:

Man, this year for Nintendo has been very weak. Aside from a few games, the other games Nintendo made has been mediocre. And not to mention the delays Nintendo has made on their games. And that terrible E3 digital presentation. And Virtual Console and Wii downloads have been lacking, especially in North America. Overall, this year was very bad for Nintendo and that's being generous.

Better luck next year Nintendo. You're gonna need it.



Yellowkoopa commented on ​Super Mario Maker Director Shares Details A...:

Super Mario Land had a few shooting levels similar to the fire clown car.

Anyway, this game needs slopes, all the power ups and enemies missing from SMB3, SMW, and NSMBU, more level themes, different colored Yoshi's and Koopas with their abilities, Koopalings, other Boss characters from various Mario games, adding water and lava within levels, and the Super Nintendo versions of SMB 1 and 3. Multiplayer might be pushing it, but that would be cool to see. Maybe there could be some SMB2 elements, like being able to pick up plants. And also maybe they could put in secret exits keyholes like in SMW.

I feel like most of this should have been in the game when it was first released.



Yellowkoopa commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Wild World (Wii U eSh...:

Animal Crossing Wild World, on the actual DS and not Wii U VC, is much better than City Folk, which failed to improve anything from the previous games. New Leaf actually improved things from the previous games.

If you plan on going to other towns, you're better off getting the game on the DS.



Yellowkoopa commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Release Date Quirks in N...:

Yeah, Nintendo needs to start releasing their games on the same day worldwide, or within more reasonable time frames. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon and Paper Jam should have been released worldwide this year, I don't see much reason why it couldn't.



Yellowkoopa commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Few More Challenge...:

They should have showed off the modes in the game. It's great that those three are in, but they are kinda expected to be in the game at this point in the series. This game looks meh right now. A huge general Direct is really needed right now.



Yellowkoopa commented on Rumour: Data Miner Uncovers Evidence Of Twilig...:

This would be great if a Twlight Princess HD remake actually happens, since the new Zelda game isn't coming anytime soon. If this is just a VC/Wii download, I prefer that the GameCube version be available, but I know Nintendo is going to put only the Wii version on the e-shop. (If they could somehow add GameCube controller support, which most likely won't happen, that would be fine). Either way, it would be great to see the game on the e-shop.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Super Mario 3D World - 2013:

From the little I've played of it, I think this game is decent. I'm kinda mixed on this game. It's definitely better than NSMBU and 2, but not as good as Sunshine or both Galaxy games IMO. I think they should have had a couple more bonus playable characters, like maybe Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Daisy, and other characters like that.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. 2 & U - 2012:

New Super Mario Bros U is alright, it does have a few decent things about, but eh, it stills feels too much like NSMBWii. The world map looks good, I guess.

New Super Mario Bros 2 is just really terrible and very uninspired. It's easily the worst in the NSMB series and the worst game in the main Mario series IMO. The co-op is really disappointing, the game itself is basically a watered down version of NSMBWii, resused many music and bosses, it was extremely easy, and was this game really necessary? They should have only made NSMBU, and I'm even somewhat questioning that game.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

I enjoyed this game as much as I enjoyed Galaxy 1 and it may even be my favorite 3D Mario game. (Or maybe Sunshine). Too bad the story was ditched in this game, I liked the story from the first game. I do kinda agree that Galaxy 2 feels like an expansion pack, but unlike the later NSMB games, it does bring new things to the table. The music in both are fantastic, but I'm not sure which music soundtrack one I prefer. Maybe the first Galaxy? Either way, both are great. I think Galaxy 2 has more interesting levels than the first. Yoshi was a lot of fun to use in Galaxy 2. The camera in both games were a step back from Sunshine IMO. The post game was not that good for both games IMO, which included replaying the game in the first game and collecting green stars in the second game. (But I rather collect green stars though than replay the whole game). Overall, I think Galaxy 2 is an great game, even if it is just an expansion pack or DLC for the first and I prefer it slightly over the first only for the levels, but again, you can't go wrong with either game.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. Wii - 2009:

This game was okay, but not that much different from NSMBDS. 4 player co-op was fun, but at times it does get really annoying, like the game doesn't feel like it was made for 4 players, since a lot of the time there's barely any room to stand. That one second pause that happens every time someone gets hit or falls in a pit can screw you up and cause you to die. Why they didn't take that out in the next 2 NSMB games, I'll never know. The same exact themes were reused from the DS version. (And will be reused in the other NSMB games) The Koopalings was great to fight again. I wish there were other playable characters. (The two toads are alright in this game, but Nintendo could have done better with playable characters in NSMBU) Overall, this game is alright. This game feels too much like the DS version, and it's not one I would want to come back too, maybe unless I'm playing co-op with other people.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Mario Kart Wii - 2008:

I enjoyed this Mario Kart, but one thing I didn't like was that you just seem to get hit by items WAY too much and the blue shell was too common. The bikes was great to use, The graphics were not that good, becuase it looks a bit worse than Double Dash to me. Single player VS mode was a welcome addition, but I'm mixed about the Battle mode in this game. Being forced to be on teams was disappointing and no elimination Balloon battles. The arenas was good, even if some of them were way too big. The online was great, but too bad it's closed now, because I heard some things about the online was scaled back in Mario Kart 8. Overall while I prefer Mario Kart DS and Double Dash over Wii, I actually prefer Wii to 7 and probably even 8.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy - 2007:

A really great game and definitely one of the best Mario games ever. The music, atmosphere, levels, and the story is amazing. I do think Galaxy 2 has more interesting levels, but you can't go wrong with either game.



Yellowkoopa commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

I voted for Super Mario World. Super Mario Bros 3, SMW2 Yoshi's Island, Sunshine, and the Galaxy games are awesome as well. The only game on here that I really hate is New Super Mario Bros 2. Yes, I even like the Lost Levels,(Japanese Mario 2), over that game.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. - 2006:

I really enjoyed this game when it was first out, and I still think it's good today. The main game is good, the boss battles were really original (unlike the later NSMB games), the music was good, the Mario VS Luigi mode was awesome, (too bad in NSMB2 it's reduced to a bad co-op mode) the mini games were fun with 4 people. Overall, while NSMB DS (as well as the other NSMB games) IMO isn't as good as the other Mario games like SMB3, SMW, and SMW2, it's still a decent game. It's much better than NSMB2.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Mario Kart DS and Mario Kart Ar...:

Mario Kart DS is really amazing and IMO much better than 7, which was a disappointment to me. Single player VS mode, Mission Mode, and online were really great additions. The racing is always great, as well as the battle mode, and local multiplayer. Most of the new courses are fun, as well as the retro tracks.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - 2003:

I really do enjoy this game quite a bit. It's a huge improvement over Mario Kart 64. I actually prefer Double Dash over 64, 7, and maybe even 8. It might even be my favorite of the series, along with Wii and DS. (On a side note, I think the GBA version is underrated, it was really great for a GBA game, although I prefer Komani Krazy Racers on the GBA). I liked the two to a kart idea, even if it wasn't perfect. The Grand Prix was fun, since you could actually unlock things, and this game technically was the first to have 4 player GP when playing co-op, but I wish you could do it without having to do co op. I liked most of the courses, but I think there should have been 4 more tracks. The Battle mode is good, but Bob omb Blast is the best mode, and the arenas were good for the most part. The controls were good, although it can be a bit slippery sometimes, and I really liked the co-op, especially since the rear player can punch the other karts. No hopping didn't bother me in this game. I thought Double Dash had the best character roster, since everyone included had some justification of being there. (Maybe there should have been an option in multiplayer to be able to choose the same characters as the other players). I liked the specials items, but I do agree that it's not that great to miss out on triple red shells. LAN mode was interesting, I never tried it, but it looks like it plays well and I wish that it was included in its sequels. Overall, I think it's a great game even though it does have its flaws, but it's not flaws that break the game for me.

If there were to be a remake that makes improvements to this game, that would be great.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Super Mario Sunshine - 2002:

I thought this was a great game, and I even like it better than Super Mario 64. There's even some elements I like in Sunshine better than both Galaxy games. I felt I had more control of Mario, since the controls felt more loose in Sunshine than in 64 and both Galaxy games. The camera was more controllable than 64 and both Galaxy games. Fludd was also fun to use, especially the turbo and rocket nozzles. The game is more challenging at times. The voice acting, during the cutscenes, was interesting to hear, and I would like to see them experiment with it in future games. I don't know if I prefer Sunshine over Galaxy 1 and 2, but Sunshine is still a great game.



Yellowkoopa commented on Mario History: Super Smash Bros. Melee - 2001:

This game took everything that was good from the original Smash Bros and made it even better. For a limited development span, it's amazing how much they improved the game and how much content that made it in the game. Classic mode, Adventure mode, and All Star mode were at their best here. the fighting mechanics have improved, there's more ways to attack, and the music is fantastic in this game. Brawl is good, but I just prefer Melee over it.
