Cool Dude

Male, 30, United States

I love video games and I love writing about them. I used to do so here, as well as edit, but now I'm simply a mild-mannered Wii U and 3DS owner and appreciator of fine Nintendo Life articles. And no, I'm not afraid to admit that I love Clu Clu Land.

Great article. I've made a rule for myself re amiibo - I am fortunate enough to live in NYC where a Pac-Man or Mega Man or Sonic is not impossible to find in stores, so I will only buy them that way. Finding a rare one in the wild is way more fun and rewarding to me anyway than ordering one online.

@Darknyht that's still a problem with the critic, not the criticism. Take who he is out of the equation and take the criticism at face value and he has good points, that's what I'm saying. Besides, one or two game series is more than I've made, and more than most of us have, so you could argue that we are in no position to judge his criticism or Nintendo itself. But Nintendo has been with us for a long time, and because we're gamers, we feel that entitles us to a position. As it does him - he just approaches it from a different set of experiences.

Funny when some people automatically begin attacking the critic. He has a good point. It's not as simple though as Mario will fail, and it does ignore Splatoon, but I think his points have great merit.



Zach commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I thought the Animal Crossing board game looked pretty distinct from Mario Party but wasn't crazy about it. SMTxFE looks really cool but I can't tell what the gameplay will be like. Metroid FF looks like a lot of fun, just not the Metroid game anyone really was hoping for.



Zach commented on Exciting Hints of amiibo Restocks Can Be Found...:

If anyone's interested, I went to the Nintendo World Store and while they did have Toad and individual Splatoon Boy and Girl, the rest were common ones and mostly SMB series. Oh yeah, and Mega Man. Lotsa Mega Men.



Zach commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

I know that many have said it before, but I am so sick of the slow trickle of virtual console releases. Yes, some take longer, and I appreciate that, but can't they throw us some NES nuggets or something when the pickins are slim? They have such a huge catalogue...

No subheader? Need some submissions? How about...
What's in the cards?
Prizes and dragons
Puzzle & Dragons: SMB E-Dishin' out prizes
If Sean Connery voiced the dragons in this game then they would have half a heart like in Dragonheart, but YOUR heart will be filled when you read about these prizes... filled with envy for Japan, and love for Sean Connery

Any other ideas?



Zach commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

No one has watched a pirated movie and then said, "Now I'll watch it for myself!" But that's what happens with video game vids - people watch, then want to play for themselves. That is why this is inherently different from trying to profit off of movie clips that you post online and maybe talk over. What if a car company wanted to keep people from uploading vids of them driving the car? It's a similar principle here.



Zach commented on This Is What Happened When A Kid Pitched Super...:

Funny, but I pitched an idea for a sequel to Super Mario 64 years later as a kid and got an almost verbatim reply. It's less cute when you realize it's a stock response that they used for over a decade.
