maths commented on We Have Shigeru Miyamoto To Thank For The Supe...:

Yup. Super stable 3D is the feature that sold me on the system. Considering that was pretty much the most highly touted feature in all their promotional material, it's hard to imagine how they would have marketed without it: "Hey, here's a New 3DS....amiibo support for all those toys you can't find....this cool little nub thing.....and a little bit faster." I'm definitely glad Miyamoto got his way.

maths commented on Preview: We Take Aim at Splatoon to See if It ...:

Almost every piece of news that comes out about this is positive (except the voice chat thing). I won't use voice chat anyway (with strangers) since I find it kind of awkward, so that doesn't bother me much.

maths commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

@aaronsullivan here's one way it could look and be both technically possible and appealing:

There would still be a box under your TV with the power to drive the latest console graphics. The "gamepad" would be upgraded, redesigned, and downsized a bit. The subscription service allows access to all of Nintendo's VC games from past systems and the gamepad has hardware that can handle playing any of them on the go. To play modern Nintendo console games, you've got to be at home with the set top box.

maths commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 Yes, Nintendo Life's review scores are probably biased because they are written by hardcore Nintendo fans. However, I find this to be a useful bias when deciding whether or not to purchase a game. If scores are skewed high here, it's a pretty good bet that a game that receives a 7 or below is definitely not worth my time. Also, I'm not sure how you would get around this problem. It seems pretty difficult to find people that aren't biased toward a particular type or genre of game.

maths commented on Kirby Mini-Games Now Available on North Americ...:

I just bought Kirby Fighters on impulse and am pleasantly surprised. It seems totally worth the $7 to me as they added several new stages and abilities to the Triple Deluxe version. This will definitely keep me entertained and whet my appetite for Smash Bros.!
