The Worst Game EVER!? [SS Opinions #8]

Now, over the years, I have played a good number of games. Games ranging from all different genres, such as platformers, FPSs, RPGs, puzzle games, racing games, fighting games, the list goes on. But through all the games I’ve traversed, I’d have to say the worst game I’ve ever played TO COMPLETION would have to be Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. Continue reading

Nintendo’s Murky Future: Is iOS The Answer? [SS Opinions #7]

So one solution being thrown around to Nintendo’s current issues is the topic I discussed in the last SS Opinions, which is a combination-console where it’s both a home console AND a handheld.  But some are saying there’s a more immediate answer that could help Nintendo, and that is diving into the smartphone game market.

The Poké Market Crash of 2013 [SS Opinions #4]

Watch out Pokémon fans, looks like the Pokémon Bank won’t be hitting North American and European shores on December 27.

Direct Hit! [SS Opinions #3]

A few days ago, Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct video announcing a bunch of surprises for the holidays and early 2014.  Some were a bit intriguing, but a few captured my attention more than others.  I have to say the biggest surprise, hands down, was the Legend of Zelda-Dynasty Warriors crossover title Hyrule Warriors, which looks like a great game that should prove to be a popular one.  But my favorite announcement was the introduction video for Rosalina in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS.

We Don’t Need Another HD Remake! [SS Opinions #2]

Recently, Nintendo has been giving us a lot, and I mean a LOT of remakes of old games. It started with Super Mario 64 DS, which the added content in it mad it a legitimately fun and new experience, but now we’re getting Zelda remakes stuffed down our throats!  First Ocraina of Time 3D, then Wind Waker HD, and now there are pretty strong rumors about Majora’s Mask 3D!  I think it just needs to stop before it gets out of control.
