Realistically, who would pass up getting Punch Out for 33 cents and spend 200 coins for it? I would assume most of the people that wanted Punch Out got it when it was practically free.

This may sound strange as a Nintendo fan, but it could be a good thing if the Wii U tanks. Why? Because it might be the only thing that wakes Nintendo up out of their customer-unfriendly, stubborn slumber. Give us a true VC lineup with Gamecube and more retro games, give us a true account system tied to purchases, and not the console...give us a system with more power and storage, give us more ONLINE play in games. It may take an epic failure for them to wake the heck up and start paying attention.

It's hard to name a game I haven't played yet, but I do think Galaxy and Sunshine were very creative names that distinguished themselves from the field. For example, I think Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a GOOD name, but I wasn't a fan of Donkey Kong Country Returns as a game name. Something less generic. Mario Kart Double Dash was a great name which emphasized the use of the 2 characters...i think something similar to that name would work with this game because you can play with many different characters at once. Maybe something like "Super Mario & Friends Frenzy"...anything that emphasizes the use of the multiplayer.

Still hate the name no matter the reasoning behind it. Mario 64 was a Mario 3D World...so was Sunshine....so were the Galaxies. It doesn't matter if they think it's the most creative name in the world, it's about public perception. If a casual gamer without previous knowledge sees this game, the name is not likely to draw their interest. The same goes for the Wii U name. It doesn't matter what Nintendo thinks about the name, it matters what the general public thinks....and we've all found out that much of the public doesn't know the difference between Wii U and Wii. Miyamoto probably named his children "Boy" and "New Baby Girl". Other creative names tossed around for this game were probably "New Super Mario World" or "Super Mario World Returns".

I'm a 28 year old med student. Very little time, and my fiance doesn't play video games...nor do any of my friends. Nintendo deserves to continue losing profit until they wake up and realize the internet exists.

Buying on Amazon (with no sales tax) is basically the same as utilizing your DD Promotion $5 to pay off the sales tax. So I don't see how downloading "in order to get the DD Promotion" is a justifiable reason for downloading.

Wouldn't Mario 64 be considered a "3D World"? I really dislike the name of this game. Nintendo is horrible with naming its games.....for example: NEW Super Mario Bros. Wii, NEW Super Mario Bros. U, NEW Super Luigi U, Yoshi's NEW Island. Really???? In a few years these games will not be "new" anymore, and the name will be even more idiotic.

The difference between this game and playing NSMB U on Time Trial mode is what?? Both involve running as fast as you can without getting hit. I'll get blasted for this post but it seems to lack creativity.

luke17 commented on Nintendo Reveals Specific Dates For Wii U Virt...:

Let me get this straight...if you already own these VC games on the Wii you can transfer them over with system transfer and play them on the Wii menu. But if you get games on the Wii U VC then that allows you to play them on the gamepad. Is that the only difference? Just wondering why you would even need to buy them again.

It's at this point where I can bring up the question...does the Wii have more or less horsepower than the Gamecube? It appears that graphics on the Gamecube could top this. What a joke. Is the Wii really that crappy that ALL the shooters have to be on rails? Gimme a break.

wouldn't this be more of a "contest" instead of a "competition"?

luke17 commented on Mister Bumblebee Racing Champion:

This game is an app for IPhone and IPad. It has gotten quite alot of good comments on the sites I've visited. I'm gonna go ahead and predict a surprising score of 7.

luke17 commented on Review: Super Mario Sunshine (GameCube):

I applaud Nintendo for trying something different with the game. It didn't all work, but it is a nice addition to the franchise. I think Mario 64 is the best of the 3D games, but Sunshine and Galaxy are tied for 2nd.
