I love how this is now above MK8 on the "Hot Games" list.

NLife, you have a lot of nerve trying to overwhelm me with all this awful new data! I go to this site for Nintendo news, NOT math homework. Change it back RIGHT NOW

just kidding this is really helpful keep doing awesome stuff

Unfortunately, shovelware is a fact of life. Before there was eShop shovelware, there was Wii/DSiware shovelware, retail shovelware...I think what Nintendo needs to do is keep their platforms open and do more to promote the indie/obscure games that are actually good. I believe the eShop could be much better organized in that regard.

@GeminiSaint It's very interesting. I think some of these people had the impression that the game would raise enough money and then just pop out of nowhere. Just look at all these comments whining about how boring it looks or how they don't like the animations when the game is still almost a year away from completion! The ignorance on display in these Kickstarter-related posts is truly mind boggling.

But it isn't a tablet killer, at least not right now. Like others have said, it just doesn't have the same multimedia and app power iPads and Androids have. Nintendo should simply keep building it up as a unique, quality gaming experience. In my opinion, that's all it should ever have to be.



ekreig commented on The NES Story Began On This Day 31 Years Ago:

So, the NES is a whole 12 years older than me. I grew up with a PS1 in the house, so yeah, way before my time. I DID get to play a few rounds of SMB1 and Duck Hunt at a friend's house as a kid, however. I'm pleased to say I remember being thoroughly impressed with it.



ekreig commented on Final Fantasy Explorers Is Hitting Japan This ...:

Really hoping for a western release because I've been wanting a multiplayer 3DS RPG for ages. However, I'll admit the phrase "stepping-stone into the world of RPGs" worries me. The way I see it, that could either mean highly customizable like Bravely Default or just watered down. Like always, I shall reserve my judgment until I read some reviews.



ekreig commented on Interview: Bertil Hörberg Jumps Back Into the...:

Game is looking good. I'm not at all surprised that the first one sold better on the eShop; a game like Gunman Clive with touchscreen-only controls would be a nightmare for me! Keep up the good work, Mr. Hörberg.



ekreig commented on First Impressions: Taking Sonic Boom for a Spi...:

"it’s rooted in old-school side-scrolling Sonic, with an added element of exploration that comes from both the level design and its four playable characters."

Oh wow. I thought I was done with Sonic, but I might actually want this. Just have to wait for some reviews, I guess.



ekreig commented on Review: ATV Fever (DSiWare):

From an economical standpoint, making DSiware still makes a lot of sense. Developers can reach both DSi and 3DS owners while not having to learn the complicated 3DS hardware, win-win.



ekreig commented on Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (3DS):

How to Train Your Dragon 2 3DS? Oh, thank goodness. My dragon has been playing Super Mario 3D Land and he uses the Golden Leaf in every single level! Day one buy for me.



ekreig commented on Eiji Aonuma Vows to Reduce Hand-Holding in Fut...:

Sounds great. I REALLY hope the Mario & Luigi developers are listening to this.

Dream Team: Hey, check out this unskippable 30-minute long tutorial for a move you'll only be able to use in the game once or twice!



ekreig commented on Creator Shu Takumi Testifies on Ace Attorney W...:

"This made me wonder if, given that Edgeworth was supposed to be such a brilliant prosecutor, it wouldn't be rather sad to have him lose case after case to Phoenix"

LOL, this is always something I've thought about. It seems like every new prosecutor in the series is built up to be this big, bad, prosecuting champion that always gets their guilty verdict....until they overlook extremely obvious contradictions and end up losing in every single case you see them in. I'm glad to see that he's at least somewhat aware of this, haha.



ekreig commented on Grezzo Seeks New Employees Asking If They Want...:

Yep, MM3D is coming. I was certain they were going to announce it at E3. Kind of a missed opportunity there (especially with the 3DS retail lineup being a bit thin at the moment), but whatever. Bring it, Grezzo!
