Minotaurgamer commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 - 1996:

Not my favorite Mario game. Action platforming was replace by puzzles and star-hunting losing many of its charm , although still entertaining.

I still remember the first time I saw it in flesh. I was mesmerized! I couldn't believe what I was looking and though that it felt "too real". Ah those innocent days...



Minotaurgamer commented on Mario History: Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Is...:

For many years I always considered Yoshi's island my favorite SNES/16-bit videgame and platformer. I loved the artstyle and the gameplay.

But after all these years playing it in many consoles and versions, I don't think the same anymore. The exploration can be more tedious than fun and the collectathon is annoying. Also the levels are too big and stuffed. But the worst is Baby Mario, who passed from being a cool character to a crying baby. I still like it of cpurse but I think after all these years that DKC is definitely the best SNES platformer with YI in a strong second.

@rjejr ok..
2DS is an entry model for people with budget issues.
New 3DS is a model aiming to the high-end customers.
Wii Famuly is just the Wii without the GC backward stuff because, GC games are only for Nintendo fanboys and the Wii is for a mainstream audience, i.e people that never played and don't give a damn about the GC
Wii Mini...why fans are freaking with this? really? why? are you guys so arrogant that you now have amnesia of some sort? ALL SUCCESFUL CONSOLES RELEASE BUDGET RELEASES WHEN THEY ARE REACHING THE FINAL YEARS. The NES, the SNES, the PS1, the PS2, etc. Yeah the wii was succesful no matter how much you want to pretend it isn't Welcome to the real world.



Minotaurgamer commented on Analysts Suggest That Nintendo's Quality Of Li...:

Lol pachter. I can't believe people still takes him seriously.

I doubt they cancelled the QoL platform they were planning although I wouldn't be surprised if it was cancelled. I mean, even when Iwata was alive he never shown anything.

Or who knows? maybe next year along NX will be the start of a brand new Nintendo.



Minotaurgamer commented on Mario History: Super Mario Land - 1989:

Heh, I have never noticed Daisy in the cover before.

I remember playing this game at my aunt's game boy and loved it. I still hear the soundtrack and makes me feel very nostalgic. Yes, this game is shorter and weirder, but that gives it its charm.



Minotaurgamer commented on Splatoon Passes Half a Million Copies Sold in ...:

Half-million copies in 2 months is actually very low. Although is a new IP but still is a bit dissapointing.

But man, Just look at Minecraft! All these years and it hasn't fell from the top 10?! Amazing! I tip my hat to Notch. He really created a new gaming phenomenon and I respect that.



Minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:

@MrPuzzlez @OorWullie New Super Mario Bros. U was sold along the Wii U and was the only game that was sellling at the same rate as the console. Have you forgot about it? You're delusional if you think a "make your own mario" would have sold to the masses like crazy. Make no mistake. This game is mostly for fanboys and Nintendo knows it.

"Gamers and casuals"..hmm. dunno why but after all these years I still want to punch in the face to people that use that idiotic buzzword. no offense.



Minotaurgamer commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

I really doubt that Nintendo's next home console will be Backward's compatible. I dunno. I don't think it is a major issue now as it was before. Simply put, the PS4 is the best selling console at the moment and it doesn't offer BC either. Maybe wiiu ehops games will run on a custome emulator like the VC games..or maybe not at all.



Minotaurgamer commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

There you go. Not picking up this game. Being mature and bloody is not enough to get a game if its broken and stupid.

And there is a difficult named "casual"?! are you fing kidding me?! MUCH more reason to not picking this garbage and support the idiotic "kazualHRDKR" mentality. Screw it.



Minotaurgamer commented on Gunpei Yokoi Discusses The Struggle To Make Th...:

What a great interview. The VB was a dud but he had his feet on the ground unlike many developers of today, including the ones from Nintendo.

Speaking of the Big N, It really pisses me off how they are starting to show little respect to his legacy like he never existed or something. The way they treat Metroid like giving it to that absurd failed filmmaker named sakamoto or how miyamoto's ego likes to pretend the Super Mario Land games never existed and ignoring them on the Mario anniversaries.



Minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

I guess that what Nintendo is trying to do is not another Dreamcast, which, in its time was a powerful console created to attract the PS1/PC users and failed because of it but making a console for the masses, like the NES, GB, Wii, DS which were very succesful.

I think this is a better solution to keep along and return to profits than making another Gamecube fiasco like the Wii U. The fact that Miyamoto is out of the project points to that.

That's actually good news, it has a bigger chance for a better future.



Minotaurgamer commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

"was blamed by NST's senior Japanese management for the failure of the project. They seemingly took no personal responsibility"

Nintendo (a.k.a Miyamoto's play house) in a nutshell: "if we succeed, we are genious. If we fail, it's because marketing/they didn't get it/they are not japanese".



Minotaurgamer commented on Prototype SNES PlayStation Found In The Wild, ...:

Thanks @megalink I am tired of "journalists", including Nintendo ones, still painting Nintendo as the villain while it was Sony who pretty f****ed up and Nintendo just defended themselves.

Anyway, this is an amazing finding. But I guess it would be succesful seeing how many CD-ROM add-ons failed.



Minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

A lot of people compare the Wii U to the Dreamcast. I don't see it. I see it more simmilar to the Sega Saturn.

Both are succesors to very succesful consoles (the Wii was successful, you like it or not), were aimed at the "hardcore" gamers and fanboys, its launch price was a pricey and its' lineup was full of ports, had a small but good library or games in its lifetime, it is remembered fonldy by gamers and it made lose faith ib the brand.

Dreamcast failed because it was aimed at the PS users that didn't give a damn. Let's hope the NX doesn't make that mistake.



Minotaurgamer commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

The HUGE majority of "indie" games are very creative and terribly boring. so nope sorry but that's not how things work. if they cannot make a game that can be better than a 30 year old one then they should stop wasting money and find another job.
