mushroomer commented on Video: Everything We Know About Nintendo NX, S...:

Hey guys can we start a Prediction Thread? that would be fun to brainstorm what WE think the next system should and shouldnt be able to do.. NO?

My first Prediction:

One of the surprise announcement will be that you can take this VERY portable and POWERFUL system with you anywhere as well as screen cast it to smart tv's and a special NX set top box. similar to ChromeCast and Roku.

The cool thing about being able to take this system with you is that they will start opening hotspots in Malls and Gamestop stores and Arcades so that you can play the games that are hosted there.

Another NEW and amazing feature will be that you can bring this system with you to the new Nintendo Theme Park in Orlando. There will be rides and kiosks with exclusive content and gaming action that only people who bring them with them can experience for themselves. So for EXAMPLE

The Mario Kart ride at the new Theme Park is fun like any other ride similar to Olando studios and Disney World. but if you get on the same ride and bring your NX portable. you can use it to shoot down koopas and enemies and at the end of the level. you get a highscore.. the leaderboard will really bring people back for more and it wont be a stupid one. it will be very clever and Miyamoto-like.

Anybody think this to be cool?

I heard the title is not Mario vs DK , it will be Amiibo vs DK, Mixing Mini's
At any point in a level you can tap an amiibo to the controller to unlock that character. For example, tap the mario amiibo and the mini will start shooting fire balls. Sorry guys, my attempt at a fake news.

@Mogster totally on same page with you. everybody says zelda maker.. i say no. mario is a platformer. you get instant jumps and hurdles to satisfy that part of the gamer. zelda is a puzzle adventure. puzzles have to be designed by teams and implemented over months of thought and brainstorming by design geniuses. if we got the world to design puzzles, boy they would either be trolling or horribly boring. compared to a complicated nintendo deisgner.

well... looks really polished for a fan made short.. BUT, all amazing productions aside.. story is very bland. What i mean is, many will be dozing off because there isnt any character development.. but really well done.. feels more like a tribute short rather than a realistic Hollywood film. I would love to see a sort of time travel element introduced into the metroid universe. J.J. Abrahams meets Metroid. Or even alternative universe.. which i suppose the prime games did play around with.. where you revisit areas that have changed...

can you imagine a Star Fox Maker? where you place asteroids and enemy ships in a 3D environment and share with the world? then you could have 100 Fox Challenge where you have to get through 10 levels randomly created by others.. place buildings on a planet. recreate death star?

One more advantage for Nintendo to offer digital on Amazon is exposure. Right now, a parent who goes to Target usually doesnt go to the electronic department. And the definitely do not go to eShop on the wii u. But, they do get slammed with Amazon ads and offers.. I can imagine many amazon users seeing mario maker for the first time through amazon. Not really knowing what it is.. and if they know that their kid or grand kid has a wii U. then purchasing a game gets much easier for them. theyve also always had the physical option too. i suppose.

What should I do guys?

I already preordered physical copy from amazon with $10 discount with Amazon Prime.

But the physical copy could be scratched someday.. I have little kids who do that sort of thing from time to time.

Amazon doesnt give 10 dollar discount for digital.. (as far as i know) so my question is to this community..

Mario Maker Digital for 59.99
or
Mario Maker Physical for 49.99 (potential of scratching and.. disc load time and.. possible for loosing disc)

Also, having an option to filter out certain topics like new features in a game like Mario Maker that spoils the enjoyment of discovering things yourself. Maybe dont reveal it in the headline. but rather require a click to the actual article to reveal it. you could put something like this "New Character Unlockable Mario Maker" instead of "Be Windwaker Link In Mario Maker"

@manu0 totally agree. seriously. just put a flag icon before or in the headline. and also have an option for USA users like myself to filter out UK and JAPAN news. i really dont care if UK is getting more club nintendo items.. if anything that makes me more angry.

mushroomer commented on Video: Let's Remind Ourselves How Totally Radi...:

GUYS i was in the Chicago based one. I made it past the first round. then they said you have to return the next day for quarter finals.. My parents didn't even consider returning again. Totally out of the question.

I also remember gameboys on display for the first time. The first time i saw tetris on a portable.

I also remember going and watching a boy show off his skills. He was the winner in california or something and he showed off how to get coins faster in the 1st part where you have to get i think 50 coins.. then you have to do 2 laps of rad racer? and then finally you have an overall time limit to get as many points as possible in tetris NES. SO cool. but that memory is so deep. hard to remember all the details. Also without internet back then, I had not clue who won.

I already voted for BONK.

The problem with opening up voting to the public is that majority of voters im suspecting will be the more recent generation meaning they wont even know what im talking about.

It was
Bonk
Excitebike Racer
Thomas from Kung Fu
Mike Tyson (would be totally awesome. They could create a Dream Bout level.)
Wart from Super Mario Bros 2 USA
Birdo (why not)
Mother Brain
QBert
Frogger
Popeye
to name a few...

seriously.. this puts less and less faith in their NX online plans.. can you imagine? if they cant even get a SURVEY based online experience to work smoothly? how will they unify 3ds, wii u, nx, pc, and phones.. i guess if you dont mind waiting around 5 hours and hope you can log in... and once you are.. who knows if you can even jump.

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

What happens to all our digital purchases from previous generations? i am only on board with NX if you can bring thing to it. if not, they are asking some people to throw away hundreds if not thousands of dollars worth of content. millions if you consider everyones purchases.

mushroomer commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

@Zombie_Barioth Im sort of leaning towards your theory that they need to get rid of excess inventory before the summer.. where i believe they will reveal The NEW Wii U to match the branding of The NEW 3DS. with more features.. but still compatible. its more like a 1.5 update of the system rather than a full 2.0

mushroomer commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

so 225+17(tax)+5(shipping) = 250ish for a used machine and who knows if it really includes club nintendo.

299.99 is for the new one so for about 50 bucks more, you get a brand new machine from b&h

BTW, anybody get this feeling that nintendo is trying to get rid of their inventory so that they can cash in on it before this summer? i really have this bad feeling about summer being the time they reveal The NEW Wii U. which will have many better features but still be a wii u but just have more features..

am i the only one?

@Sonicman I watched an unboxing video for refurbished bundle and they included club Nintendo codes. Also... They don't have tax free/free shipping so in the end... Is it really worth it? B&h photo has it 299.99 no tax free shipping. Let's do the math... And brand new.

mushroomer commented on Review: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars (...:

@rjejr
yeah, so i think the 10+10 will hopefully pay off for people who invest in this game not from the 80 levels that ship with it but... the community that could potentially get involved because its not tied to one console. also.. it costs money to upkeep online stuff and this game seems to be more involved. where you are doing some sort of tipping stars to each other. i am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be a great value but in the end, you may be right.

if it was 10 dollars, i can see how online and long term support might be difficult. but it would be nice if amiibo's could unlock things..

BTW on a different topic related to the game, did anybody notice on the official site, that there is this GOLDEN MARIO that you can unlock.. what if the Walmart Gold Mario could unlock that gold mario... as well as grinding..

take a look at the text next to the GOLD mario..

mushroomer commented on Review: Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars (...:

@Nintendude789 there have been 4 or 5 games and only 2 of them were 10 bucks or so. 3 of them were full priced nintendo games 29.99 list price.

i think the 10 price was aimed at the digital download only games. that they didnt do too much developement on. but this game, since its cross buy between wii u and 3ds..as well as sharing between systems, they are sort of pioneering a new thing that nobody has ever done before.. i can definitely see the 20 dollar price tag as being a very fair price point.

if it was a 3ds eshop only game and there was no effort of changing much from prior iterations, then yeah 10 bucks.. but this game lets the community share levels and play levels between device and console. isnt that worth something?
