i know, i know. there's a "wii u for dorks" thread for discussing wii u shit and a "new videogames" thread that occasionally makes mention of wii u/3DS, and then there's a "retro gaming thread" where petty posts a lot, and an "old videogames" thread that deals with some NES/SNES era shit alongside old PC games, but i mean come on. where can a fan of all things Nintendo both old and new post up to reminisce about the games of old or get the latest info on new developments in marioland?

Imagehere. this is where.Image

i was deciding between buying a Wii U and a 3DS a couple of weeks ago, and went with the handheld. grabbed the Mario & Luigi: Dream Team version and am about halfway through that game now. fucking love it. the kid falls asleep, the wife falls asleep, and i'm sitting there in the dark cross-eyed with 3-dimensional delight. just cruising around stompin' on baddies and reading hilarious text bubbles. good times.

also grabbed Super Mario 3D Land, Bravely Default, Zelda: Link Between Worlds, and Shovel Knight. man it's going to be a fun couple of months around these parts!

holy shit you just killed my productivity for the day, thank you

and yeah i got a 3ds, i think that was the right move. link b/w worlds is soooo fun. haven't played mario & luigi tho and bravely default is like the next video game i'm gonna buy. currently i'm waiting for my everdrive 64 flashcart to come in though. i already have all the nintendo 64 no-intro roms downloaded and am waiting to relive my teenage yrs once the package comes in and i got the nintendo 64 hooked up.

Weird question, but did anyone remember a distinct smell when opening SNES/Nintendo 64 boxes up for the first time? It wasn't a bad smell or particularly noticeable, but I feel like it was a part of my childhood. It was probably just cardboard or something.

i've owned a NES, Gameboy, SNES, N64, GBA, Gamecube, DS, Wii and 3DS over the course of the past 28 years. i had forgotten how happy playing a new Nintendo game made me until powering up the 3DS. it's who i am.

i was feeling the exact same way before i bought the 3DS. i grabbed Super Mario 3D Land as well, which i forgot above. haven't played it yet but i'm pretty psyched for this and, eventually, 3D World on Wii U.

the only one i didn't own was the gamecube and 2002-2007 was basically the time in my life when i was heavy into drugs and drinking and almost ODing and dying. really makes me feel like nintendo is what keeps me from wanting to slowly kill myself thru chemicals in the end. nintendo saved my life y'all!

It's kind of odd that Nintendo doesn't have any bad first party games. I've been trying to think of one, but nothing comes to mind.

so was Metroid: Other M as terrible as they say? it's the only game in the series i haven't played.

also, has there been any rumor of a new Metroid for either 3DS or Wii U?

Not technically a first party game, but it's not bad from what I played. Just kind of boring.

i just remember that magazine as being unrelentingly pro-nintendo. it would talk in high terms about how great a shitty game was.
don't get me wrong, i love nintendo, just the magazine made me erk a bit.

i remember one day in 1986 or so when my dad got home from his weekly trip to some other state for work, and he comes walking down the stairs to the basement where my brother and i are eating polly-o string cheese and playing SMB. and he's got this smile on his face as he produces a copy of Baseball for NES, and then sits down and proceeds to play the game with us for hours. best memory. he played most sports games with us through the SNES years and that was it. but he was excellent at Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf and Super Play Action Football.

This post really speaks to me since I sit there in the dark and play my 3DS till mad late while my girlfriend is asleep next to me. Sometimes she wakes up and goes what are you doing and I say "Going to sleep soon"

I will say that my Wii U has been collecting dust in my living room mainly because I have no one to play games with but also because usually I'd just rather play 3DS

Well, Nintendo published the magazine, so of course it was editorially bankrupt from a reviews perspective

They also held content hostage, and were somewhat hostile toward third-party enthusiast press outlets

I would suggest that anyone who owned console hardware between 1985 and 1996 read that new Blake Harris book, Console Wars
