1. an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.
Nothing about it is comical. My above post wasn't an exaggeration; I nearly fell asleep trying to watch it.

I'm too busy finishing my collection goal of getting the original Smash Bros. 64 veteran cast. I just need Pikachu, who I'll get after I get paid, and Fox, who I'll import when I'm sure I can afford paying double for an amiibo.

@MasterBombad I can definitely agree with that. I can not for the life of me understand why Miyamoto thinks F-Zero needs a new controller. The GamePad works great in MK8, even with motion controls in 200cc, so what makes F-Zero so different? I could go on, but this is old news, and there's nothing left to say about it.

@MasterBombad It hardly seems fair to compare a fanbase whose first game in a good while is a co-op game to a fanbase that's spoiled to hell with how many games they get. Neither is a perfect fanbase, but they're way too different. Try comparing the Metroid fanbase to something more relatable, like the F-Zero fanbase. I can't remember which came last, GX or GP Legend, but it's been much longer than 5 years, and all Nintendo has produced for F-Zero was a minigame in Nintendoland (which was vastly inferior to the hectic multiplayer Metroid minigame) and a couple of DLC tracks and some other minor content in a non-F-Zero antigravity racer. If anything, the F-Zero fanbase has received less love than the Metroid fanbase, and have more reason to riot than the Metroid fans, yet there was never a petition to have Mario Kart 8 cancelled, or have its antigravity physics removed, or there was and I never heard of it because it didn't receive many signatures.

@roy130390 Well, I don't see what people see in Ridley, he's just a barbaric space dragon, whose backstory is only explained in a non-canon manga, but he'd definitely be a better candidate than any of the bounty hunters from Metroid Prime: Hunters. @MasterBombad I can definitely acknowledge that Zelda fans such as myself have been spoiled rotten by Nintendo, to where a good number of them were upset at Zelda U's absence from E3, despite the unexpected announcements for 2 3DS games (for the record, I didn't expect any Zelda announcements and would've been okay if the series was completely absent from E3, just knowing that Zelda U will be shown at some point later). Still, they've never had a petition with 22,000 signatures to have a game cancelled, either.
I find that the fact a petition like that even exists is a testament to how bad the fanbase has gotten, especially when they complained the last time a Metroid game was cancelled, and now they'd rather have another cancelled game than give this new game a chance.

It's been a while since Pachter was featured in an article here! Not surprising, really. Let me pick apart this quote:
"My advice to the next CEO of Nintendo is to consider exploiting Nintendo IP following the Disney example, with movies, toys, toys to life, pajamas, theme parks, etc. Nintendo has already begun to do this, but the successor should redouble their efforts."
You want another Super Mario Bros. Movie? Seriously, Disney characters are born from movies, and are usually awkward in video games, even in Kingdom Hearts! Nintendo characters are born from video games, and don't belong in any other entertainment medium, period!

@Whopper744 ^This. I don't see why the Metroid fanbase can't be happy we're finally getting a co-op Prime game. Up until now a bunch of other Nintendo franchises got a co-op game: Mario (both 2D and 3D), Zelda, Kirby, so why not Metroid? Any time Nintendo tries to be creative, the fanboys go ape-you-know-what-crazy!

I never knew about the petition. The Metroid fanbase, IMHO, can be the worst fanbase for any Nintendo franchise. They expect too much from a new game before it's announced, then gripe when it doesn't have what they wanted before it's even released. Case in point: Ridley's absence from the Smash Bros. roster, even after Sakurai explained the reasoning behind it.

Tiny Galaxy, airport management, Blaster Master, G.G Series and more
So when you say "more," you mean "I Love My Dogs and absolutely nothing else," right?
Not that I'm complaining. It's kinda hard to, knowing what's happened to Nintendo's CEO this past week. :(

Iwata, not only did you help shape Nintendo, nor just the video games industry, but I feel like you inspired me to be who I am today. You were an inspiration to us all, and I wish your family and Nintendo's employees well. I don't think they'll be able to replace such an amazing person.

I like the idea of using the Happy Home Designer houses in amiibo Festival, but without that and the fluctuating turnip prices, this sounds like it might as well be a board game. I'll gladly buy a K.K. Slider amiibo, but only as something to display on my shelf, and maybe if I buy HHD, but amiibo Festival is hardly worth my time.

I have to buy Splatoon for my friend's birthday, so I'm not too broken up about the lack of interesting VC games, but it does hurt a bit that I'm gonna have to miss out on another sale for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.

It would be neat if amiibo cards became the next baseball/PokéMon cards. Maybe Nintendo could sell them in foil-wrapped booster packs, and offer characters in different rarities, like the Collectacards in Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call.

GameStop sells Star Fox: Command pre-owned for $5, and that includes the multiplayer, as well as the luxury of portability. Now why on earth would I buy a stripped-down version on the Wii U for double the price?!

@Iggly I only came close to beating Partners in Time, and just picked up Dream Team a few days ago. I'm definitely enjoying all the familiar faces that pop up every now and then.
Hopefully Bowser's Inside Story comes soon; I never got deep into that one.

allav866 commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Is Basically ...:

I was most looking forward to Animal Crossing U; the timing couldn't be better, y'know? I saw Isabelle pop up out of the ? Block and was instantly excited, and then they started talking about the lame home designer. I felt a bit disappointed, but then they showed Wii U footage for an Animal Crossing game! Isabelle walked out of the train station, and I was really getting hyped, and then I saw weird tiles on the ground. My reaction was as follows:
"What are tho-- No... NO..."
Well, at least we have a Wii U Animal Crossing. I just wish it wasn't Monopoly. Home Designer doesn't look so lame anymore...

I'll definitely get this, but I really hope other Zelda characters will be added as DLC, like Groose or Nabooru. On that note, I hope owners of the Wii U version can transfer the DLC to the 3DS version.

"Hello! I'm Masahiro Sakurai, director of Super Smash Bros. Today, after this presentation, you'll be able to purchase Lucas from Mother 3, but I believe there are many of you who may not quite know exactly who he is, outside of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Well, I'd like to give you an opportunity to become acquainted with this character, so later today, Mother 3 will be available, for the first time ever, in all regions on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. We at Nintendo hope you'll enjoy playing as Lucas in Super Smash Bros., as well as in Mother 3."
A guy can dream, right?

I deleted it when they stopped uploading funny 3D videos and started putting up crappy 2D videos like "Baman and Piderman."
It's a shame we can't just download the videos. I'd like to keep the Kid Icarus and Kirby videos wherever I go.
Edit: Just found out the Kid Icarus and Kirby videos aren't even on the eShop.
