copeland4 commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

The online matches went smoothly without many disconnects, but we hope they'll put a permanent ink level gauge on the HUD... it's rather annoying and inconvenient to have to dive into the ink to see your current ink level.



copeland4 commented on Club Nintendo in North America to Remove Post-...:

There wouldn't be a problem with getting things registered in a timely manner if Club Nintendo would allow anything over 600 coins to go towards the next calendar year's gold and platinum status. We have tons of games waiting to be registered because anything over 600 coins won't count for next year, and the truth is that the platinum reward is usually better than anything Club Nintendo regularly offers. Are you reading this, Nintendo? :P



copeland4 commented on Month Of Kong: The Making Of Diddy Kong Racing:

"And in many ways, Diddy Kong Racing is most certainly the better game..."

"’s fair to say that Diddy Kong Racing not only did a lot of things better than Mario Kart 64..."

Let's try not to let our personal biases get in the way of an otherwise pretty good article. We know way more people playing Mario Kart 64 nowadays than DKR, so MK64 must not be that horrible. There are many things that MK64 did great that DKR could not reproduce with as much success (e.g., item system, multiplayer), and there are several things DKR introduced that were rather unwelcome (e.g., unforgiving difficulty in several areas, sometimes confusing and race-inhibiting stage design). It's almost hard to even compare the two: MK64 is purely racing and multiplayer, while DKR is action-adventure racing with a plot. Both are great games, but remain objective in your writing, no matter how much you favor one over the other.
