I don't think it's going to die, but there's no denying that MelonSaurus makes some great points. And I really think it's only a matter of time before more people realize that Nintendo's been doing the same thing over and over again. Already a few folks have figured it out.
Best argument on here, hands down.
I'm not arguing against the series' popularity. I know Mario's a strong franchise. But the fact is the 2D games have grown stale.
Also, "this guy" isn't living under any rock, nor is he a "Nintendo hater." For years the only current platform I owned was the Wii. I'm a fan, but I've grown tired of the series. You don't have to love Mario to be a Nintendo fan. Xenoblade and Last Story? Pre-ordered and own both. Kirby? Easily one o...
Umm ... I never said anything about sales. My gripe is that the 2D series is getting stale. Will I buy New Super Mario Bros. U? Yeah, probably, because I'm a fan. But it's going to be the same thing we've come to expect.
Sales reflect popularity. Mario's popular, I noted that. But it's a series that's relying on a fading novelty. Really know what you're arguing against before you make a blind argument yourself.
I thought the first DLC pack was really good. I can only hope we get some more great maps down the road.
I think at this point we won't get any single-player expansions aside from small additions to Arcade Mode like this.
But ... Mega Man.
"Amature" is not a word.
I totally see your point, but believe me, I've started my articles in a positive manner and I still get blasted by pricks who don't know anything but to disagree with others. When the attack on the Vita was at its peak, I wrote an article about why people should give it a second chance, and I had a bunch of stubborn readers telling me that it didn't need a second chance because it was "still on its first chance." I was like, "Umm, the Vita's getting decimated by...
Sorry excuse for a journalist?! I resent that! I'm a games writer, not a journalist!
Twenty-two games?! This joker!
Didn't mind the criticism, and I actually gave you an "agree" vote because unlike so many other people on this site, you were actually posing an argument in an educated, coherent manner. I still don't agree that the Vita has a lot of worthwhile games, but that's my personal opinion. Just like that entire list is my personal opinion. I'm certain there are people who think Snapshot is a joke, but that's one of the games I'm actually super stoked to play on the...
That's correct. You need to download the new content right through the game itself. Everything should be unlocked for you to download it.
Same here. Really intrigued to see how that will play out!
The flashbacks were some of my favorite sequences in the game. They had the dark, gritty vibe that I loved about the first two games. That would definitely be great.
This DLC features some of the best maps in the entire game. Sadly, everyone keeps voting for Branco HQ during the pre-match voting sequence. Geez!
Yeah, I was really hoping for launch and pricing info at E3 this year, but the lack of said announcements made me reconsider buying the Wii U at launch.
There are some cool games in this bundle!
Journey is one of the few games I've played in recent memory with an actual awe-inspiring atmosphere.
Really looking forward to this film.
