Why am I Readying my Spade? post 1
comment by The Digital Ninja    Jun 19, 2006
Is it me, or does this list comprise of more than a few No brainers? Zelda? Metroid? Mario/wario/smash brothers? for a company much vaunted for it's undeniable penchant for innovation, why are we still having Nintendo's forced Mascot rammed down our throats? I for one would be very, very intrigued if every other game wasn't 'Super Mario Sunshine Blast'

With the Wii, Nintendo have a real chance to show how innovative they really are, instead of giving us an awkward way to jump a fat plumber into a box...

Mr Ninja... seems a bit harsh considering the general lack of innovation from the other consoles' games. A least there's a distinct lack of the "man running around with gun against the world" games, which seem to be flooding the industry. And no WW2 games! On the Xbox it's getting to the point where I'd quite like the opportunity to let Master Chief and the Covenant settle their differences through a bit of 3 on 3 basketball.

Interesting though that I haven't seen anything on Nintendo's promised back catalogue download features. Given that Xbox arcade is pretty much agreed to be a success, they've got a bit of competition there...

Incidentally one of the recently announced games I like the look of most is B-Boy on the PS2. Bit of breakdancing action will be a nice change from blowing stuff up or racing touring cars. Bit of classic Arthur Baker on the soundtrack, and I'll be happy.

But Microsoft and Sony aren't the ones claiming to be innovative - they're quite clearly gonna spew out the same stuff we've seen for a decade or so, Nintendo are the ones claiming to to create a new world of gaming with their quirky little controller, and so far? You can swish a sword and click and drag stuff. Wow.

I dunno, my girlfriend likes Nintendogs on the DS. It keeps her off the streets. ;-)

Plus I named one of her dogs Barry Scott. BANG! and the limescale is gone.

I disagree with this opinion,we have all played mario,zelda games etc before.However nobody has played these games with the new control system,if this is not innovation what is? no-one is forcing you to play these so-called mascott games are they? These pattented nintendo characters have been with us for many years and have proved to produce the BEST titles time and time again on any console?

BTW - you won't need your spade anymore with a Wii, it'll be able to recreate the digging experience just by waving at the screen. I believe Mario Super Shovel is coming out Q3 2007.

you can wave your damned controllers all you like, This will just be a repeat of every console since the snes, 1 good game a year in europe, delayed from the year before, a weird pad, and the japanese market will kill each other trying to buy one, as the stock slowly dissapears from the shelves in europe and America; bring on whatever the next one is called, if Nintendo's european research team have a hand, it'll be called the 'porpoise-poo'

I agree, I enjoy my gaming lethargy - waving my arms about is far too energetic for me. Athough sticking to that philosophy almost caused me to drown once.
