Nintendo's quality output as a third-party developer

Scotland, I believe Sega still has Yu Suzuki, who was once considered to be Sega's answer to Miyamoto. The point is this: Sega has made good games since going third party (Super Monkey Ball, Billy Hatcher, Outrun 2), but when's the last time they made a GREAT game that could be seen as a system sell...

Nintendo's quality output as a third-party developer

First off, I know that people are probably getting burnt out on Nintendo-focused threads, so allow me to apologize in advance. Since the days of the GameCube, there has been a constant rumbling about Nintendo going the Sega route and bringing their games to MS and Sony. Even then, this made no sense...

Help me choose an 8th gen console

JWK, that's what happened to me last gen. I bought a Wii at launch, and I loved it! However, once Sony lowered the price of the PS3 to an amount that I was willing to pay, I picked one up and my Wii started collecting dust, save for the occasional game (ala Mario Galaxy 2, Swords and Soldiers, DKC R...

Help me choose an 8th gen console

I would recommend the Wii U above the other two..... For now. The selection of first-party games is great, and there are some really good eshop games to be had. With a few exceptions, third party support is basically dead, unless you count the occasional eshop exclusive. You already know that PS4 an...

Let's DIscuss DLC

But the point being made by Scotland was that there was no "good/bad dlc" discussion until Nintendo got involved. Plenty of companies have done the Mario Kart 8 approach, long before Nintendo made it popular for the Nintendo faithful. Prime example: From Software. Dark Souls 1 and 2 were absolutely,...

Let's Discuss: Compilation Discs

I often wonder what Nintendo's arcade legacy would be if they would have taken the Sega route and had an active arcade division right alongside their console division. I mean, what brilliant arcade games would Nintendo have cooked up in the 90's? Maybe Mario Kart would have gone to arcades first ins...

[QUOTE=snakeboy][QUOTE=Tron]How about this, 20 games on the disc, but you can only play each 1x as a trial. To unlock each gameindividually for unlimited use you can pay $1.99 online. The disc itself will only cost $20 so it's a great deal. [/QUOTE]<br /><br />Brilliant!  It almost makes <em>to...

2014/10/30: Super Nintendo: Bram Stoker's Dracula, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein

I'm curious: how does a game go from being a D game to an F- upon a rereview? I take F- to mean that the game is completely broken, but wouldn't you have noticed that in the initial review?
