The company boss with a tekken name will show his secret knockout combo that unlocks more stuff in mario maker.

Then we watch Reggie play some guitar and announce that, while there's no trailer for Zelda u yet, there's definitely this kid paying the theme on a flute.

That's all folks!



erv commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:


I'm here for a long time already but plan to stick around for the next ten years as well.

And I'm really looking forward to the new site. Thanks for being q great source of Nintendo information to all of us. Does Nintendo know how important you are?

Almost anything can be powered up by being “makered”.

Zelda maker would of course not include the dungeons themselves or the core story. But imagine if each zelda game has you laying out your tiny little piece of land, somewhere insignificant in the game. 1 million users later when you stitch all of those together and you’ll have a free world to wander around in.

Then go explore and visit each others patches. Very possible.

Again, he's a good analyst, just a bad visionary. Analysts are supposed to use lagging indicators to communicate likelihood yet here he's speculating.

It's okay, I think he's right, but it's just gut feel and a bit of logic, nothing indicative.



erv commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

all download, all the way for me. The only disc based games I have are the ones that didn't show up in the eshop for some reason (black ops back in the day). So I got three discs or something from the year 2012. The rest? Digital only.

And I intend to never look back and keep it that way.

I really don't like the censorship at all. Of course I wouldn't buy a game for its erotic nuances when that is not the point of the game. I just hate content related to anything sexual being so under represented in an otherwise so fluent art form.



erv commented on The NES is Now 30 Years Old:

Oh I remember getting this for my birthday back in the day. The system was late in Europe but hey, who cares. I got to play it and thank my parents to this day that they introduced me to gaming.

I think the quality level the system had was great too. It definitely helped getting me to fall I love with gaming.



erv commented on Rumour: Data Miner Uncovers Evidence Of Twilig...:

I think it’s more likely to be a VC kind of thing. But I wouldn’t buy it because of the sound - I replayed it and think the game is awesome, but that sound just doesn’t cut it for me.

I’ll be interested in a remaster, though. Especially a HD one that is gamepad friendly and has that midi audio replaced with proper sound.

It's great to see the pirate ship back. It was one of my favourites and I was sad to learn it had gone missing in action. Here's hoping toon links down aerial a will bounce back again - instead of suicide - one day.



erv commented on Nintendo Partnering with Green Man Gaming for ...:

I want this to happen more. It opens the way for discounts, which is currently the only drawback for me in my digital only world.

Though the eshop promotions to date have provided me with plenty of discounts, more would be better:)



erv commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

As an analyst, he's not doing a bad job, but as a visionary, he absolutely and hilariously sucks. I think it's funny people look to analysts for vision. It's like asking an elephant for ballet techniques.

This is all based on the assumption that the status quo is never going to change and the concept of a game playing machine is not going to evolve. Which doesn't happen in any market, ever.

Fine analyst, bad visionary.



erv commented on More Than A Million Super Mario Maker Levels H...:

I didn't get a lot of plays for my levels yet so I have only a tiny amount of stars. I'll probably be stuck in the 10 level limit forever if there's a pick out of a couple of million in a few weeks!



erv commented on Reminder: It's Super Mario's 30th Anniversary:

Guess Mario's next game is midlife crisis mario management. Scale down on goomba resources for savings in the anti protagonist department, while wondering how the love of your life made out with your brother and your nemesis, got knocked up by him, spawning bowser jr in the process.

It's gonna be turn based, boring and stale, while the peach saga was, of course, too adult for the masses to screen. It's leaked online somewhere though.

The game's gonna feature lots of new power ups, like car lease contracts, hair dye medication and blue round pills.

You heard it here first people!
