i guess i have to announce it, then: Keep your comments focused on the discussion at hand and not on each other, please! The 'AlexSays vs. NintendoLife' portion of this discussion needs to end, both sides, right now — it is not productive and keeps derailing the thread. You don't want to be the one to make me have to come back in here for anything other than to comment on Super Yoshi Galaxy, guys, i'm serious :/

guys guys guys

Yoshi's Island. A full 3D Yoshi Island game. The possibilities. Hell, call it Super Yoshi Galaxy, add Baby Mario, you likely have my 50-60 bucks already. Seriously, my favorite Mario platformers are Mario Galaxy and Yoshi's Island so I would be in heaven.

(a) i hated Yoshi in SMG2, but if the game were straight-up Yoshi only, that could actually be kinda amazing. if he throws eggs with the wiimote as a pointer, i'd be so down.

(b) i'm not sure why you wanted to report your own comment earlier — are you asking me to close this thread? because I'll do it, even though now that we're discussing Super Yoshi Galaxy as SMG3, i kinda don't want to do so :(

@Otaku: Because not everything in Japan is female and cute? Because there's more to life than pining for a pretty girl? Because not all of us spend our lives mooning over what we'll never have? Because Japan does not exist solely to amuse you? Seriously, pick your answer. :/

Either way I don't believe anyone is getting 'banned.' lol

I'm genuinely concerned. "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." So long as it doesn't become a back and forth brawl between users.

if you think there's a problem, report it. otherwise, leave it alone, please — you're creating an issue when there wasn't one in the first place.

'expensive' is entirely in the eye of the beholder — what country you're coming from, how you spend your money at home, how often you go on vacation, whether you mind staying on the seedier side of town to save money on a hotel or transportation, etc. and so forth. one man's expensive is another man's cheap bargain, so the important thing here is to do your own research and be absolutely sure that you can reasonably afford the costs of a trip to Japan if you are trying to make that happen. Don't blindly trust what one person or one report tells you, do your homework and make sure it's right for you.

seriously, this game sucks kirbies IMO. i absolutely hated this game and fought my brother and sister tooth and nail to play something else instead when we had it in the rotation on accident. boring, boring, boring. if you enjoy pinball and you enjoy Kirby, there are much better games available in the eShop on both counts tbqh.

all right, you guys asked for it, so here it is. i apologize for the crap quality, but hey, i'm no videographer, so deal. I did my best to refrain from using bad language, but i had one slip in the very beginning of the video, so you have been warned. enjoy! (or allow me to lull you to sleep, idk)

@AlexSays: life gets so much easier around here when you stop caring about what other people think. let them be wrong, it's not life-or-death and anyone with reasoning power beyond ZOMG NINTENDO YAY will understand what you're saying. :3

as to the original question, Nintendo's made no secret out of their policy to use existing technology in new ways, and good for them re: marketing their console to a then-untapped consumer base, but do i think the Wii was a revolution? not in and of itself, no. Roll on Wii U :3

last i checked, cellular networks of any kind weren't Wiis.

it's a simple question — do you feel the Wii lived up to its codename, yes or no. Post your answer, let others post theirs, and if those who disagree with you are too far out there to understand your logic, just move on — they're not going to listen no matter how hard you attempt to persuade them to your position. let's get back to the main topic, please and thank you :3
