Yoshis_VGM commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

@DESS-M-8 Personally Mario Kart 8 looks like the most visually impressive game the Wii U has offered up as of yet. But I totally agree, the next 3D Mario game needs to be an entirely new game, NOT GALAXY 3!! Honestly, I don't want a Galaxy 3. I loved the first two, don't get me wrong, but a third one is not needed.

Although your comment with 3D World though, I felt that it's better on Wii U. I don't really see the 3DS being able to pull that game off. It was a fantastic game but I admit, it's time for a brand new Mario game.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

Wow, such negativity in the comments! Seriously people, it takes about 2-3 years to develop these games and they JUST STARTED on the new one. It won't be here until late 2015/early 2016, I'd suppose. And honestly, this is hardly milking the franchise. This game will be the 16th Super Mario game in roughly 30 years, yet there has been 18 Call of Duty games in 10 years. That is hardly milking it.

On top of this, you guys made these exact same comments when 3D World was announced, and look how good that turned out to be. I'm never doubting the Tokyo EAD team again. They say they're making a new 3D Mario, it's guaranteed it will be nothing short of amazing.

Common sense, people.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

This is actually pretty bad. Because now, after Mario Kart 8 on May 30, the only confirmed release window is December 2014 for Smash Bros. Wii U. Bayonetta 2, X, and Yarn Yoshi still don't have official dates. Not good. Not good. Unless they can make the Wii U one different enough, this won't do anything to help Wii U sales.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Nintendo Releases An Awesome Mario Kart Infogr...:

I've never played the first first Mario Kart ever was DS but I was able to play Double Dash with a friend on a few occasions. All of these games are great, and Mario Kart 8 looks simply marvelous. Can't wait for May 30.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Report Suggests That June Could Be Crucial For...:

Here's something you guys don't seem to understand: dismissing Iwata will not, I repeat, NOT magically solve all of Nintendo's problems. They will still be there when he leaves, and they will still be there when a new guy takes charge. And there's always the possibility (and it's a big possibility) that a new CEO will only make the situation at Nintendo worse. Don't get rid of Iwata, it will only make the situation worse.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Video: Nintendo Approves of this Mario Kart Song:

Wow so much negativity in the comments!! I hate to use a bad pun, but seriously people, LET IT GO. It's a SONG. It's supposed to be just a fun little video.

But you can't ignore the fact that this man brings up some very valid points about the Wii U. While the console does have quite a few fantastic games, the lineup is still very thin. Which brings me to another point...Mario Kart 8 is currently the ONLY upcoming Wii U game that has a solid release date. Let that sink in for a moment. And he was right when he says this is the chance to save Wii U...if this game doesn't cause a big boost in Wii U sales that will remain CONSTANT, then that will be a major hit for Nintendo.

All in all, this guy makes a lot of valid points in his parody. But seriously, set your fanboy rage attacks aside and just enjoy the song, because it's actually quite clever.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:

I kinda stopped using Miiverse once the 3DS community joined and once 3D World introduced the stamp system. People never use the stamps for anything creative and instead just spammed the community down with childish-overbearing stampiness. Seriously, I could never ask for help on Miiverse for 3D World because my post would quickly become buried under spam posts. Miiverse was great once but the quality has rather degraded now...



Yoshis_VGM commented on Extended Nintendo Network Maintenance on Wii U...:

@JuleyJules To each his own, but I think the February Nintendo Direct was quite major because it talked about Nintendo's plans for the first half of 2014. If you can recall, they mainly talked about games that will be launching through May. After May, we have E3 in June. The February Direct was essentially a mini-E3 for the first half of the year.

I'm not saying a Nintendo Direct next week is unwelcome, though. I would gladly accept one. I just don't think it would show anything too different from the last one. April seems more probable to me, as that could detail the three major May releases (Kirby, Golf, Kart) and could act as a pre-E3 Direct. We'll just have to wait and see.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Extended Nintendo Network Maintenance on Wii U...:

@ThomasBW84 I guess we'll find out Wednesday, right? I'd be surprised if it points to another Nintendo Direct, though...last month's was pretty major and we're still pretty far out from the major upcoming releases, with the exception of Yoshi's New Island on Friday. April seems more probable for the next Direct, as that's right before Kirby, Mario Golf, and, most prominently, Kart.

But you never know, Nintendo might surprise us. If it is a Nintendo Direct though, I have a vague feeling it will be rather underwhelming compared to the last one.



Yoshis_VGM commented on This 'Provisional' Mario Kart 8 Box Art May Ge...:

@ThomasBW84 This is the same box art Iwata used in his investors meeting, so it's most likely the final version. Just look at the report and go to the page where he announced the game is coming out in May. The slide has a super tiny version of this box art. Because of this, I believe that this is the final box art design.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...: Keep the GamePad. Removing it would not be smart...they may think that it would be a good strategy, but think about this...once they remove it, the Wii U literally is just an HD Wii...and there's no appeal in that. Also, removing the GamePad will make the ~5 million current Wii U members VERY pissed, because then they'll have this useless controller.

I personally really like the GamePad. Off-TV Play is fantastic and it is a wonderful feature. We really just haven't seen a good game that utilizes the screen to its full potential yet.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

For all of you wanting Iwata to resign: stop and think for a moment. Iwata resigning/being fired will NOT magically solve all of Nintendo's problems. They will still be there once he leaves, and they will still be there once a new person takes charge and they could get worse if management changes at this point. Kicking Iwata out is not going to change anything, so I say keep him around. 2014 has lots of potential for the Wii U, let's just see how it goes.

To all the people saying the Wii U will doom Nintendo: they're currently sitting on a massive pile of cash that has accumulated from the huge success of the Wii, DS, and the ongoing success of the 3DS. The Wii U will most certainly NOT doom Nintendo.

Take these two accounts into consideration before going on an Iwata manhunt and calling doom and gloom.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Nintendo Confirms Major Reductions In Sales an...:

Oh boy, I wasn't expecting that huge a dip for the Wii U sales projections...

I am sincerely hoping 2014 will be better for the console. I absolutely adore it and I've had a lot of fun with it, particularly with Super Mario 3D World. 2014 looks very promising. I'm hoping it will all turn out okay. As for the 3DS, it'll be fine.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to avoid gaming news websites for the next few days because I have no intention of reading the doom and gloom articles that these new financial projections are sure to bring...



Yoshis_VGM commented on Dallas Tech Company iLife Thinks Nintendo Stol...:

When was their supposed "breakthrough" technology created? If I remember correctly, the Wii entered development shortly after the GameCube launch in 2001. I seriously doubt they were making motion controllers before that.

And considering the fact that they filed 8 lawsuits since December 2012, I think it's perfectly acceptable to label this company a patent troll. So pathetic...



Yoshis_VGM commented on Wii U Skylanders Bundle Deal Heading to GameSt...:

@Alucard83 Oh yes, because the low storage space was the reason why Wii U sales were so low in 2013. Please, as many other people have mentioned, you can easily expand the Wii U's storage. Besides I'm more of a retail guy when it comes to games so storage space doesn't really matter to me.



Yoshis_VGM commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

This place saves my Nintendo sanity. I know that I can come here and not have to deal with any absurd "Wii U has no gamez!" or "Wii U is dead!" or "Nintendo is doooomed!" statements. Thanks for all your hard work and here's to a great 2014!



Yoshis_VGM commented on Nintendo Apologises for Nintendo Network Issue...:

At least they acknowledged the problem and kept us in the loop while they were fixing it, unlike some company that totally ignored their red ring of death disaster...

Anyway, glad it's back up. I'm not a Pokemon fan, but hopefully they'll get those apps released soon so that people can stop complaining.
