Apparently there are actually people claiming Mario Kart 8’s screenshots are FMV cutscenes, or have been “photoshopped” to look better than the game will actually look.
I can’t believe people are so obsessed with the notion of Wii U having N64 quality graphics that anything resembling “good” graphics just HAS to be faked.
The Wii U is literally selling worse than the Dreamcast, what are you trying to prove at this point?
Play violent videogames: Ugh, what a sociopath! I hope he gets put on some kind of watch list before he shoots up a school or something.
Play nonviolent videogames: Eww, what a pedophile! Only little kids are supposed to play games like that. I hope he gets put on some kind of watch list before he sexually abuses a little kid or something.
You know, in spite of all the “Nintendo killer” and “lol Nintendo DS sux cause cartridges & bad graphics” hype, I really embraced this thing when it came out, even as a Nintendo fan, and I continue to consider it once of the nicest looking and feeling video game machines ever created.
I miss it.
Also, in hind sight its kind of ironic how Sony was basically hoping this would be the iPod Touch in terms of being “the 21st century Walkman that spanned all forms of media”, years before the device that would actually fill that niche ever materialized.
PS I’ll never stop gloating how many gamers and tech/gaming news outlets gave the PSP favor over the DS on the basis that the PSP used optical disks while the DS used “obsolete cartridges”, yet seven years later the PSP’s successor used the exact same cartridge technology as the DS for its games, and ditched optical entirely.
Looks like nintendo can now install un-asked for icons to my #3DS desktop to advertise stuff. Kinda dont like that.
Whenever I see the Magnavox Odyssey placed on any “Worst video game consoles of all time” list, I want to punch my freaking computer screen in the hopes that the moron responsible feels it.
Seriously, ODYSSEY WAS THE FIRST GAME CONSOLE EVER.
That’s like saying the Wright Brothers glider was the worst winged aircraft of all time because it only flew for 12 seconds.
So I just saw the Sonic Boom interpretation of Dr. Eggman (who I still call Dr. Robotnik because I’m an old reactionary).
I like how they invoked the character’s original Genesis-era design without simply copying it.
Come to think of it, isn’t this the first major redesign he’s had in the games since Sonic Adventure? I mean they made him look “realistic” in Sonic 06 but it was still the Sonic Adventure style outfit he was wearing.
Anyway, the way they did the jacket with the buttons and everything makes me think of a steampunk or dieselpunk interpretation of the character.
Someone got pissed that Super Mario 3 isn’t out on the Wii U Virtual Console in the US, so he called Nintendo tech support and subjected the operator to a self entitled hissy fit about how Nintendo “lied” to him.
The person making this sounds like its a kid, but he’s not the only one by far who thinks and acts like this.
I have seen this behavior IN PERSON and from FROM GROWN ADULTS.
At the E3 2013 event at the Nintendo World Store, from ADULTS, bitching and passionately angry that Nintendo was “fucking them over” and “lying to them” for things as trivial as having to wait in a line to play a video game demo.
I witnessed so much of this spoiled, wrongful entitlement and unfounded outrage from more than a few of the guests in the store that there were times were I literally felt personally embarrassed to be at the event, and to this day question whether or not I feel like going there for E3 2014.
I know it was only a minority of people acting up, but imagine having to be subjected to watching something like this phone call unfold RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. Its super uncomfortable and embarrassing.
I also know this is a general problem with human misbehavior, but stuff like this makes gamers look bad, and makes Nintendo fans look bad. :/

Excuse me, just laughing at more of the kneejerk negative reactions to the announcement of the Nintendo DS a decade back.
We need THESE in Zelda games from now on for grottos and so on.
Because they make a hell of a lot more sense than believing that Link would jump into a deep hole in a remote location with no rope or later to escape from and absolutely no reason to expect to be able to get out.
(also, ain’t this a pretty photograph)
