The track record of rebooting 80's franchises as MOVIES is so bad. The current TMNT show is pretty great, and while I'm just not a fan of the franchise in general I know Transformers has had some popular shows recently. »
I think this is going to be the 3DS's equivalent to the Game Boy Color. We'll probably see titles compatible with both systems at first, there may be some games that are 3DS compatible but have some features that specifically take advantage of the extra buttons (and maybe the extra power), and as the market shifts… »
The color buttons are a throwback to the Super Famicom. The ABXY buttons used the same color scheme, while the Super Nintendo got shades of purple. I doubt the rainbow buttons will make it out of Japan for that very reason. »
Woody mentions rules when talking to Sid's toys. There has to be some sort of innate programming, even if non-aware toys like Buzz Lightyear only display it subconsciously. »
Golden Sun and Super Paper Mario have similar moments to the Suikoden 2/Persona 3 endings. Both games, fairly early on, allow you to flat-out refuse to go on a quest to save the world, leading to a non-standard Game Over that implies the destruction of the world.
(And yes, I know Super Paper Mario isn't a JRPG, but the… »
Always love to see the Vita get some attention. It'll be interesting to see how well 2 players/1 system Nidhogg works out.
Well, now I need to go replay Ghost Trick again. For a plot-heavy game, it sure does have fantastic replay value. »
I forget, does Mario Kart 8 allow two players to select the same character in local play? I know online (at least with strangers) lets you just because it would be a mess otherwise, but the MK standard so far has been "no".
And the reason I ask is because I'm wondering this- do the different color Yoshi/Shy Guys count… »
It turns out the only winning move really is not to play. This is what he gets for doing his own beta testing. »
I'm getting the impression that Nintendo gets DLC, and really wants to make their customers feel like they aren't getting nickel and dimed. Especially since I'm pretty sure this content isn't already on the disc- otherwise the people modding the game would have found it by now, right? »
If the inevitable WiiU release also gets a special edition Arcade Stick, I'll be all over that on day one. »
I really hope that Palpatine rumor is false. The endless stream of Palpatine clones was my absolutely least favorite thing about the post-ROTJ EU. »
Well, it almost fits perfectly. There's room for 5 more on that leaked menu, but don't forget the Mii fighters (unless those are selected by some method outside of the character select screen). »
Given that Elsa is one of the most powerful characters in the Disney animated canon, probably over very quickly. »
The comparison of GotG to a pizza is brilliant: you know it has problems, certainly not the best thing on a strictly technical merit, but it's so amazingly delicious that you don't care about an ounce of that. »
