It all started with Aladdin and Sonic on the Mega Drive, then Mario arrived with his triple jump and high octane kart racing on the ENNNNSSIIIXXXXTTTYYFFFFOOOUUURRRR. The rest is History. Also Banjo Kazooie. And N64 Magazine. And Beetle Adventure Racing. Awesomeness.

Given that Amiibo only unlock some limited "extras" this really isn't a big deal. If anything, Nintendo are locking what could easily be regular game content and perhaps, arguably, this should be available to All who purchase a given game.

I guess it's nice that it exists so that gamers relatively new to Rare can witness first-hand the magic that was.

And you could argue this is about the only instance where Microsoft are deriving value from their hefty purchase.

I guess business is business, as much as we'd love more flexibility from Microsoft (e.g. Licensing Banjo-Kazooie IP to Playtonic)

If only Zelda was coming this year, then the Wii U might hit 15million lifetime sales.

The 3DS is doing terrifically well - given the handheld device market

I guess it's tough to stomach the Wii U doing under 20 million lifetime sales even 2 years from now... NX can't come soon enough!



YoshiTails commented on Review: 3D Streets of Rage 2 (3DS eShop):

In last 24 hours have bought this, fantasy zone 2, sonic the hedgehog and outrun - These M2 remakes are pretty special and a great reminder of just how talented Sega were back in the day

When you get into Advance Wars, you fall in love with its clever gameplay of anticipation. And you'd buy any Advance Wars game to get that hit - If Nintendo released as many AW games as they have pull blox, I'd buy em all.



YoshiTails commented on Wreck-It Ralph 2 Confirmed to be Smashing Its ...:

Nintendo have promised to relax their IP licensing so you never know... can't see Mario having a big role as giving him too much dialogue might spoil the character somewhat - probably be similar to Bowser'z cameo in the 1st film



YoshiTails commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

This man comes across a giver. A man who put his job and fans ahead of his Health. A man who created a rollercoaster of ups and downs, determined to stay the course.

This is saddening because it takes a lot of courage and empathy to keep driving forward in the way that Mr. Iwata did.

Nintendo and its fans are indebted to Iwata's passion, dedication and hard work. He will be missed.
