The many Nintendo references of Guacamelee

GN: ''I started playing Guacamelee tonight (PS3). I had heard that it was chock-full of game references, but I didn't know just how many Nintendo-specific nods there were. I grabbed all of these within the first hour and a half alone! Keep in mind, I only took pics of the Nintendo-specific moments. There were many other references to third party games.'' (Guacamelee, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS3)

And Final Fantasy (cactuar)
and they had Tales From Space
and Castle Crashers.

I know those aren't Nintendo references, but I've been looking around and taking screenshots for fun. Someone asked me what the game is like, and I said it's "Mexican Metroid".

Haha "mexican metroid" is a great way to describe the game! An yes I missed those, I remember seeing the Cactuar from FF.
Also the the ability to take in game screenshot's on the Vita is freakin awesome, I've only just found out it was possible! lol

Your observation, correct.

Your tone, unnecessary.

Your profanity, immature.

Anyway, you should play this game, it's great fun! :)

Don't have time and will not play it even when I have PS3.

And no my tone is the not same here.
What I type doesn't reflect my tone on how I feel about it.

Beside I am playing
Fire Emblem Awakening
Lego City Undercover
Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate
Bioschock (360)

Don't have time or interest.

Bioschock huh? Is that the German version? :P

You don't have interest in this game, yet here you are in the comments section of what must be the 20th article about the game. Hmmm...

I think you are interested and who could blame you? I reckon you should buy yourself a Vita and play this on it. For me, it's better suited to the Vita's awesome screen.

I wouldn't be a true gamer if I just sat back and watched you deny yourself this much gaming pleasure, friend ;)
