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.

YoshiTails commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

They've been fairly smart with the controller design - power chord the favoured shape, constraining stretching to a 3-fret limit, so might be good lead into real guitar for beginners.

For actual guitatists it'll be a cinch - partial C chord, D chord, Em chord and power chord shapes seem to be all thats required



YoshiTails commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

How amazing would it be if Nintendo released a console more powerful than Xbone and ps4? Course that may be unlikely given their stance on innovation over grunt. But there is a chance to catch the competitors out, a state of the art console to attract some of the mass market back.



YoshiTails commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I remember a lady on the bus with her 5 or 6 year old telling me how GTA was his favourite...

As frustrated as I was being a 14 year old whose parents wouldn't let him have Goldeneye, I think age ratings are there for a reason. The younger you are the more impressionable.

Mind you that didn't stop me playing Goldeneye at my friends house ;)



YoshiTails commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

At least it shows how much Nintendo care about quality - speaks volumes that they would avert the juicy holiday cash grab.

But Miyamotos quote stands - look at sonic boom and the damage it has done to the brand and sega....

Well look at a vast number of 3D sonics you might say! Though prior to Boom they had regaine some credibility with Colours and Generations.

This neew Zelda will be worth the asking price of the Wii U it seems so let's sit tight and anticipate :)



YoshiTails commented on Nintendo to Lead Design and Development of Sma...:

I think Nintendo have tried to compete with or at least straddle the tablet market with the wii u - their thinking clearly influenced by the popularity of tablets, so let's have a tablet-like controller and the consumers will flock.

But this hasn't succeeded - so it's a case of if you can't beat em, join em.

Unless you're Miyamoto. Miyamoto joins nobody, he's too busy pioneering.



YoshiTails commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

NX - Nintendo Xtra? Nintendo Xtreme?, Nintendo X? , Nintendo Xylophone?

Or maybe it represents a cross - merging both platforms

Either way it looks like Nintendo have just entered the 21st century. Buckle up, it's all or nothing now.
