CRank: 14Score: 0

I pointed out minor flaws with Odyssey in my review, including an issue with motion controls and occasional frame rate drops. I also didn't get along too well with BotW, so I didn't review it.

That doesn't make it a 'perfect' game - does a literally flawless game exist? - but it DOES make it worthy of a 5/5 score for me.

It's not short (I've put 40+ hours in and still haven't collected all of the Power Moons, which unlocks a new section) and it brings more new, creative gameplay additions to the Mario series than most sequels for any franchise does, but you do you.

Although I don't think a Game Boy Classic is totally impossible, this filing was a story a month ago when it was first accepted, so 'just' isn't apt.

It's also a specific image trademark to be used for merchandise. It doesn't have anything to do with hardware.

Oh no, not at all, I'm worried about thousands of niche games. The Mirror is a mainstream outlet though, so it was the best example to use to prove the point to its casual audience, haha.

Mods reporting this as a duplicate should note that the other story - posted days ago - is referring to the rumour of an event happening, and not reporting on the event itself.

In fact, that article's information can now be proven to be incorrect, as the updates they referred to are not in the event at all.

This response tells me you maaaaaaaybe didn't read the article. ;)

Sounds probable, but can you give the source of that box art?

This is all part of a conspiracy to give kids spots on their faces.

As the concert/'announcement' only happened last night, several hours before you commented, yes, yes it's still news.

Possibly, but all reports from everyone there is that he specifically said 'remake.'

As a journalist and a retail representative, I can wholeheartedly confirm that game publishers do indeed do that. They'll leak a few tidbits of information themselves - either directly or via journalists - in order to initiate hype. It's kinda necessary if other companies are having pre-E3 leaks and building hype; unfortuantely, it's an important part of E3 PR.

Nintendo are super lenient in regards to embargoes, they're great in that respect.

They tend to be just generally lenient when it comes to this sort of thing. As a GAME employee, they're one of the only companies that regularly allow us to purchase their games early when they come in stock.

This should be bundled in with Advanced Warfare to boost its appeal.

I work in a GAME store and my store's Nintendo PR field agent - who, upon Nintendo UK's request, set up Facebook groups for their region's game store staff to talk about Nintendo games and to let them know what's new first - let us know that his entire division has been laid off due to cuts.

Apparently, they're outsourcing temporary PR agents for the release of Mario Kart 8, but after that they will no longer have field agents.

I debated e...

Precisely my point: it's like they're set up to fail. It's not that their PR division isn't succeeding, it's that Nintendo isn't giving them what they need to do so.

To be honest, I actually think this is part of the problem and not a solution. Nintendo don't seem to understand the changes that have come with the modern market as well as they should.

They completely underrate the importance of PR, branding and online. They can modernise themselves and still keep the unique qualities that make them what they are.

How is some mild game mechanic faults being fixed not polishing the game, exactly?

This is the exact sort of thing that I expected the game had been delayed for and that's fine.

Uh, not quite.

Here in Europe at least, it's fully legal to rip music/films from content that you've already paid for.

The architecture of the 360 and the Xbox One (and indeed the PS3/PS4) is too great in difference for emulation to be efficiently possible without having literally kitted the console with the innards of the predecessor console.

Anyone that still thinks emulation can be made possible for their discs via a software update isn't paying attention.

In the very least, I can assure you that Sony haven't recalled the stock of controllers we have in the GAME store that I work in.

My thoughts are they'll probably allow stores to sell off current stock before sending stock of modified controllers.
