For some reason in the West, handheld games don't usually get nominated for GOTY. No matter how good they are. :(
"Human embargo laws do not apply to robots."
The review is appreciated, but good luck getting any more review copies legitimately from Nintendo.
edit: At least they shouldn't.
This is a common type of post when any site makes a post that criticizes another company.
"Oh, you must be a Sony fan."
"Oh, you must be a Nintendrone."
Or whatever. We're apparently fanboys of Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Lord knows we've been called each with each new opinion piece.
You're trying too hard.
Nintendo has stamps (achievement-like goals) for games like Nintendo Land and Wii Sports, so it's a natural evolution, really.
13 1/2, you big meanie!
I kid, of course (about the age part, not you being a big meanie). :P
I love Spring Yard, Labyrinth, and Star Light zones' music from Sonic 1 the best. Marble is pretty good, too!
Is Yoshi sniffing Ellie's...?
Yes, it was poorly sequenced. I've fixed it. Thank you for pointing that out, all.
Sonic is not a good seller in Japan. Still, these are pitiful numbers.
Their current online system is serviceable, but it's not worth charging for.
Also, how was this approved?
To be honest, I'm starting to get really happy with the Wii U. Sales are sadness, though, definitely. :/
I might get both versions, as they're two games with differently designed levels.
On N4G and many other communities for gaming all fanboy groups are pathetic and act immature. No group is better than another, and a person trying to argue against that is probably a fanboy themselves. It's absolutely embarrassing for this hobby, and it's no wonder why the industry is seen as such a joke-- which it absolutely is.
If you read the article instead of coming up with a kneejerk response, you would have read this part:
"Another reason as to why some folks say they've outgrown Nintendo has nothing to do with their games and more to do with company's policies. In a generation where $400 and $500 systems will be the norm with their beastly power, the Wii U, in comparison, has all the power of a kitty cat. These critics who have "aged out of Nintendo" have possibly grown...
Hi there. No, I did not mean you were obligated to like Nintendo or their games, or it's lunacy that a given person doesn't like Nintendo games. I thought I made that clear. It IS lunacy, however, to say you've outgrown an entire company's entire output of games when it is so vast and varied.
Sorry if there was any confusion.
There are great alternatives from Sony and Microsoft to Nintendo. It's just Nintendo has more IPs that are for everyone-- not just what you say "colorful, kid friendly platformers" either. They also have plenty of other series they do, such as Fire Emblem, Kid Icarus, Smash Bros., Pikmin, etc.
I don't think he bothered to read the article anyway, as I went over what he just said.
I was going to get this until I learned that the quasi-exploration aspect of entering dungeons was gone.
