Nintendo is the moral police, so they know what's wrong and what's not, so if anyone is allowed to use strong arm legal tactics is them. Just ask the millions of fans owner of fan sites what it feels like to mess with Nintendo. Or hell, ask any developer that worked with Nintendo befor N64's downfall, and what it's gonna become now that the Wii is dominating.

Besides, Nintendo Zealots support this attitutde. I mean who DARES to rate a nintendo game below a 9? Remeber how Jeff Gerstmann got lambasted for rating the Wii version of Zelda TP an 8.8? Even though I don't agree with the rating... the zealots go "how DARE he, it's NINTENDO!".

famitsu will give a square-enix/nintendo/first-par ty sony game a guaranteed 35+

there's no arguing with this fact.

dont be a hypocrite, if your favo game got a low rating you would be b/tching like hell.

You know, bootsielon, that fansite thingie was an april joke went awry. Then again, you might've ignored that as well. Who knows?

But it's quite callous to go and say Nintendo doesn't do quality games. Someone seems to have forgotten, that while they have lessened the control on 3rd party games, it seems the Nintendo seal of quality is still ticking inside the company itself. Of course it helps somewhat that it's a strong brand behind the games, but let's face it: Most of those scores Nintendo made games get, they deserve them.

I think mario kart was crushed in the 64 era by diddy kong racing, and double dash didnt really freshen up the formula much.

i will still buy it along with brawl when the big N decides we aussies are worthy of a release date...

bootsielon3853d ago

Didi Kong was overly complicated. It was a good game, but too hardcore so it didn't have the staying power of MK64.

ChickeyCantor3853d ago

then you didnt play Mario kart DS.......that one is awesome...

FinalomegaS3853d ago
