SparkOfSpirit commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

@IxC I just don't see Metroid Prime 4 being announced. Maybe a 2D Metroid for the 3DS, but a full blown 3D Prime game being out by this holiday (since most games announced at E3 are usually out by then) just seems unlikely to me.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Review: Mario Kart: Double Dash!! (GameCube):

This is still one of my favorite games and I'm speaking as someone who has been playing the series since the first one. I hope this gets a VC release or a HD remake (with retro tracks!) sometime this gen. This game does not deserve to be forgotten.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Feature: Nintendo Moments You Never Saw Coming:

I thought Tropical Freeze was a great surprise. In my opinion it's the best game Retro has made and it came out of nowhere to me. Though I'm sure Metroid fans will disagree. They already trashed the game endlessly before it even came out.



SparkOfSpirit commented on Mario Kart Month: The Developers Who Tried To ...:

"From my own experiences now as a parent, kids are more likely to want to play Forza 5 online in a photo-realistic McLaren P1 than try to clout Bowser with a Red Shell. Kids have moved on."

Sales don't seem to indicate that. I'm not sure why western devs still think kids care about "photo-realism". Kids like games that are fun. I don't know too many Mario Kart players that switch to Forza of all things.
