FINALLY! I skipped the 16-bit era entirely (no SNES or SEGA), but whenever my older brother and I went to our dad's place, we'd play Sonic 2, and I'd play as Tails, since I wasn't as good at video games. So I might not have any nostalgia for a lot of other SEGA Genesis games, the Sonic games, particularly Sonic 2, will always be something I fondly remember!
I do hope M2 will add some way to play the game in 2P mode, as well as allow you to play as Knuckles, as if the Sonic 2 cartridge were connected to the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge.

Even if the retail copy came with Plague of Shadows, it wouldn't justify the $30 price tag (especially since it's free DLC anyway...). Shovel Knight is the reason I like Yacht Club Games, but this is some stupid crap they're trying to pull!

Still can't see why the Wii U isn't a suitable system for an F-Zero racing game. Miyamoto's developed some of the greatest games of all time, but his excuse for why we haven't had an F-Zero game in so long is absolute crap.

In the harsh light of modern opinion however, some of the rose-tinted sheen has definitely worn off, and a sense of repetition sets in before too long.
Where was the harsh light of modern opinion in the Super Mario 64 review?

Not sure I like having on-disc content unlocked with amiibo. It would be different if the amiibo came after the game, and the challenges they unlocked were released in an update on the day the figures were released, like the Spinner in Hyrule Warriors. This is essentially paying $30 to unlock what's already in the game.

@astarisborn94 Maybe it's because I didn't grow up with a SNES. I skipped a generation from NES to N64. Even so, I didn't say I would vote for Tiki Tong or Fredrik, I'd vote for Cranky. If K. Rool does make it instead, my reaction will be similar to Duck Hunt's reveal; I'll disagree with it at first, but will eventually be taken in by his charm and accept that he's a viable roster addition.

If I'm gonna vote for a DKC character, it's gonna be Cranky. K. Rool was a pretty neat villain, but that was ages ago, and he's been removed from his position as final baddy since Retro started making the DKC games. Now he'd only be another obscure addition to the roster (Lord knows he was in Mario Super Sluggers!)

@JellySplat Airports are the worst places to bring literally anything! I lost my 3DS adapter and pouch, which both disappeared the moment I had my back turned. If I didn't have my 3DS constantly attached to me via wrist strap, I'd have lost a bunch of downloaded games.

@andyg1971 Ever stop to think about how not everyone has your taste in games? Maybe just because something doesn't appeal to you, it doesn't mean it won't appeal to anyone else. You are of course entitled to your opinion, but you look like a self-centered jerk if your opinion is that everyone is weird for getting hyped for a game you have no interest in. So if that is your opinion, it's best to keep it to yourself instead of trying to be a downer for those that look forward to the game's release.

Don't get me wrong, I love this game... but a perfect 10/10? I grew up with Mario 64, and even I can say it hasn't aged extremely well, and I wouldn't just be talking about the camera controls either. I acknowledge that it was a masterpiece for its time, but by today's standards, it doesn't hold up that well.

Why are people complaining? This could've been avoided if Nintendo launched the game without a matching Miiverse community, true, but we should've known that they'd remove the screenshots eventually, given the nature of the game.

@Stubborn_Monkey Glad I'm not the only one voting for him! I'd like him to spit out his chattering false teeth like he does in Tropical Freeze, and his FS would be the finishing attack in every boss fight; mash the buttons to beat up the opponents and send them flying! I'd rather not see K. Rool in the game, as he hasn't been a main villain in quite a while. The last game he appeared in was Mario Super Sluggers.
I also voted for Simon Belmont, Tetra, and Isaac.

Also, I hope Rare can cut Nintendo some slack and let them release Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Goldeneye, or at the very least, Diddy Kong Racing. Microsoft doesn't deserve ownership of such games, not after what they did with Rare.

I was actually planning on buying an N64 mainly to play DK64 at the end of the month. Glad I can hold off on it until I feel like playing whatever Reggie won't release! Yeah, I'm happy to get N64 games, but I'm not too optimistic about how NoA will do in providing us with more VC games on a regular basis, even across the two added platforms.

@ThomasBW84 You should also add that the Elite Status Rewards will be available starting tomorrow:
"Your free Elite Status gift will be available between April 1 and April 30, 2015. A list of the Elite Status 2015 gifts will be posted here once announced."
That last part makes me wonder if the Elite Status gifts are to be announced in the Direct tomorrow...

@IceClimbers on that note, I am glad that Zelda U's development won't be restricted to a deadline like Smash Bros. for Wii U. It's a great game, but the stage builder, among other things, like the lack of Tournament Mode, make the game feel like it was rushed out the door unfinished. I'd rather have a complete Zelda game, not an unfinished release followed by a number of patches.

Not too surprised, but if they're gonna delay the game anyways, they might as well make a trailer to show it off at E3... And maybe give it a name that rolls off the tongue better than "Legend of Zelda for Wii U."

I almost enjoyed Sonic Generations' online multiplayer on the 3DS. Anyone who has tried it will know what made it unenjoyable, but take that stupid element out and make it a speedrunning contest, and you have a solid multiplayer experience similar to Sonic 2, 3, & Knuckles. Multiplayer could be a good area of focus for future Sonic games, but it doesn't HAVE to be co-op.

I don't think this means Nintendo is doomed in any way. They see enough demand for mobile games, and are acting on it. Can't say I'm too happy about it, though I'm more upset that Nintendo was acting all strong and keen on not producing mobile games, only to produce mobile games anyways.

@Hy8ogen I timed it while going as fast as possible. One loop only took about 2.1 minutes, 2.3 minutes when completing a puzzle. If you're not focused on doing it fast, it will take longer, but I wouldn't hold it against anyone to watch videos while performing the exploit. Depending on how many pink pieces you need, it could take a good while, even longer if you decide to get blue pieces this way rather than spend Play Coins for a random chance of getting the ones you need.
I hope Nintendo doesn't decide to stop sending special Mii's. I got a growing collection of Eiji Aonuma Mii's in Mii Maker!

I plan on backing them, whatever I can give. These guys are responsible for some of my favorite games of all time, and I owe it to them to support Project Ukelele. If there's one piece of input I would give the team, it's that the Wii U version of the game needs features exclusive to Wii U, such as a map on the GamePad.
