Keyword: first-party. Those are all great games you mentioned, but I was sticking to Nintendo-published titles for the list. As for Fire Emblem which is Nintendo-owned, I thought about it, but I figured I'd only list games that can have slightly altered controls and improved mechanics. I'm not sure anything could be changed about the way Fire Emblem played. Seriously, though, that's easily one of my favorite GameCube games.
Borderlands was easily one of my favorite games of 2012, and aside from the gameplay, that had a lot to do with the writing. Anthony Burch is a genius. Absolutely hilarious.
I see where you're coming from, and I agree that new games would be great, but I also wouldn't mind a few favorites in HD.
Because it got horror-themed DLC titled Nightmare in Northpoint. The company announced it weeks ago.
I've been getting more excited for this game. Really looking forward to playing it!
Some interesting ideas and food for thought, but the article was so poorly written that I couldn't even be bothered to do anything more than skim through it.
I expect an apology from the three jerks who gave me "disagree" votes when they're playing Rayman Legends on their 360, PS3, Vita, and PC next year.
Because if Rayman Origins was any indication, this game will probably be available on every platform in both physical and digital formats less than a year after the Wii U version's release.
Like I stated before, I personally don't think Mario is dying (pay attention, people), but there are some truly valid points about the series getting stupidly stale. Sadly, that's all I can say as this is my last bubble. Attack all you want.
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!
