Re: Games that Sell a system?

Shouldn't a 'system seller' be a system exclusive?

Re: SuperHero TV

Interesting. Daredevil never clicked with me with the central conceit of the blindness / super senses thing. Marvel made a deliberate copy in Moon Knight, that I thought would have more potential. I will have to give Daredevil a go. One thing is of course, its Netflix, that releases entire seasons f...

38. Tecmo Super Bowl (NES 1991) http://www.consoleclassix.com/info_img/Tecmo_Super_Bowl_GEN_ScreenShot2.jpg I thought American Football should be a spot in here somewhere, and there were a few in the decade to choose from. I went with Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES, which sometimes makes lists of the v...

Re: Modern or classic gaming

For pure pick up and play short gaming sessions it's classic gaming all the way. If I have a bit of time on my hands I will get my teeth into a modern game. I will second that. Modern games are equated to longer gaming sessions for me as well. Depending on what classic means to you, there are class...

Re: new 3DS game is an old mobile game

Yes, you guys are correct. Whether Old Nintendo or Modern Nintendo, it has acted in ways that cheapen the brand many times in the past. I guess I am guilty of just allowing them to forget about it like it never happened, and continue to see Mario as some sort of seal of quality. Its not. Its just ma...

Re: "It's terrible but I like it anyway" games

One game that I forgot about until I recently watched the Game Grumps play it was The Three Stooges for the NES. It's definitely a terrible game, but I loved the Stooges as a kid (and still do, to a lesser extent) and ... the mini-games actually do reference specific Stooges shorts. As far as I kno...

Re: new 3DS game is an old mobile game

Nintendo loaned out Zelda to Phillips. They farmed out Star Fox to Namco. They held their physical chips for ransom from developers. They gave the green light to the live action Mario Bros. Movie. They made propaganda cards for the Axis powers. I don't think they're really slipping for the first ti...

37 Elf Bowling (Flash browser plug in, 1999) download.jpg This game had its moment in the sun, or snow, during the 1999 holiday season. That month, everyone was worried about the Y2K Millenium issue destroying civilization, using Napster to help destroy the music industry, watching NASDAQ go over 50...

Re: new 3DS game is an old mobile game

I think a character cameo is a world apart from a complete cast, don't you. Creating and marketing this game might be evidence of things to come, of Nintendo leveraging their characters on someone else's creativity. It is what DeNa suggested they would do. Would you mind if they just reskinned other...

Re: new 3DS game is an old mobile game

I am actually very disappointed in Nintendo for this. Charging $30 for a free mobile game that's been available for three years, all for a Mario skin? No thanks. When Nintendo said they were going to get into the mobile market, I expected them to show mobile developers how it's done. I didn't expec...
