I've been a gamer since 1990, when I got my NES and Master System. I love Nintendo because they're are a haven of personality and witty gameplay in an era when everyone puts way too much stock on cinematics and gritty realism. Also a huge fan of Civilization and Magic Online on my PC.

As much as I love Splatoon, I hope they save inklings to be a high profile addition to the inevitable Smash for NX.

K. Rool, however, is my main man here. Shovel Knight and Dixie Kong would be mighty fine by me too.

I'm betting all my 3DS chips on this one this year. Aside from Majora's Mask 3D, I haven't gotten a single retail release for the system in 2015, which is sadly a far cry from how things were a couple of years ago.

This is too bad, because I'd be extremely interested in an expansive 3D adventure for the Wii U in the franchise. This 2D 3DS game, conversely, has looked a bit ho-hum to me from the start. It's gonna be hard to justify getting it at launch with the amount of backlong I have.

They need to realise that people need news. Nintendo has been silent on new releases, new plans, and the new user reward platform ever since Iwata-san passed. As much as we'll all miss him dearly, Nintendo has to get their stuff together and get down to business already.

@Koopa-King I think it depends on the game, and also on the moment. If this was released as a novelty spinoff during a year packed with big releases, people wouldn't have a problem with it. Instead, it's coming on what's by far the most barren year for the 3DS, with many other weird spinoffs (Animal Crossing, Metroid, Pokemon) around it.



ricklongo commented on Review: StarTropics (Wii U eShop / NES):

This seems like a perfect Club Nintendo reward to get eventually, if those were still a thing. WIth as many games as I have on my plate right now, it becomes harder to justify purchasing it.



ricklongo commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

I don't think I'm ever bothering with this. I already think Animal Crossing games are limited in scope, and this seems to be much worse. The lack of challenge is a fatal sin in my book... I mean, why bother playing then?



ricklongo commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

I think you guys overrated Starfox's mainstream appeal. With or without it, the Wii U lacked a big-sales title for these holidays.

Oh well. Xenoblade is going to be my title of choice this December, so I'm not really saddened by the delay.

+1 for the "there's absolutely no reasonable reason why this shouldn't be on Wii U" team.

I may get it for 3DS, and even own the amiibo, but I don't have a New 3DS or a peripheral to access the feature, nor do I intend to get them.

Meh, guess I'll get the game on PS4 instead.

I don't think SMW would even make my top 5. Yes, it's a good game, but it hasn't aged well in a few ways, with its - those cape controls, for example, are just the worst.

Oh well, SM64 and SMB3 will always be on top for me.



ricklongo commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. - 2006:

I spent a good chunk of my late teens / early adulthood as a PC gamer only. As such, the DS was my first actual dedicated console since the SNES. Titles such as this one (and Pokémon) were the reason why I took the plunge again, and I never looked back since, having subsequently gotten a PS2, 3DS, Wii U, and soon a PS4.

Great game that brings great memories.
