Dan Marshall: Nintendo’s Main Problem Is Its Games, Super Mario Galaxy 2 Is Extremely Boring

black_wii_uSize Five Games founder Dan Marshall says he’s not sure about Nintendo’s latest console, the Wii U. Marshall also says Nintendo’s new Wii U console will be like the Wii in terms of being in a hardware generation behind, compared to competitors’ forthcoming consoles.

According to Marshall, Nintendo’s main problem isn’t necessarily with its hardware, but with its software. For example, Marshall says he got extremely bored after playing Wii-exclusive Super Mario Galaxy 2 – one of the highest-rated games of all-time – for about an hour.

Feel free to read some of Marshall’s words below.

I’m not sure about the Wii U because I haven’t touched one, but I bought a Wii on launch day and got my £179 worth of joy out of it by playing tennis with my mother. That was enough for me. I think Nintendo’s problem is actually one of software rather than hardware. I played Mario Galaxy, and enjoyed it, but played Mario Galaxy 2 for about an hour before I realised I was playing exactly the same game and was bored shitless of it. After a while, the Wii’s core buckled under its own success.

It didn’t have the hardware for many games like Call of Duty to justify making a port, so it was basically lumbered with Nintendo’s software for a large part of its lifespan.

The problem is, Nintendo end up putting out Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, Metroid, all these staples over and over again to the point of self-destruction. I think the Wii U looks good in terms of the fact that it’s got Batman and Darksiders and LEGO all coming out for it, but because it’s suddenly going to find itself a hardware generation behind again, it’s going to suffer from the same problems.

I haven’t turned my Wii on in three years probably – it’s been gathering dust because it’s all Mario games that I’m not interested in. So I worry that, because of that hardware gap, the software is going to be lacking in the same way for the Wii U.

      1. Got to love it when the harshest critics begin with statements like “Im not sure about the Wii U because I haven’t touched one”

        This guy is worried too much with “power” of the consoles and that makes him dismiss great games.

    1. You should care, the Wii U is going to be too far behind in terms of power and it is going to fail. New games will be released for newer systems and the Wii U will die early.

            1. The Wii U is actually very powerful by Nintendo’s standards, because one thing you have to remember is Nintendo consoles were never about powerful hardware, and neither does it necessarily matter as much with consoles to create quality games. Nintendo has only ever put out two consoles that were factually more powerful than their main competitors. The SNES was a more powerful system than the Genesis, and the N64 was a more powerful system than the Playstation. (The Gamecube was very slightly more powerful than the PS2 in terms of graphics, but the difference was barely noticeable, and both were outclassed by the Xbox anyway.)

              However, what systems were more powerful still didn’t matter at all, because anyone who has a history with some of these consoles know that all of them had extremely high quality games going for them, and in the end, that’s all that matters. Nobody cared so much about how powerful the hardware was (except maybe Sega). Horsepower only assures so much, it’s how that hardware is utilized to create quality experiences that will win the day. Look at the PS2. It was the weakest system of its generation, and yet it was the console to go to. It had a vastly larger library of great titles than the other guys, and that was what made it the 6th gen system of choice, not the hardware. Nobody can play games like God of War, GTA 3, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper with a straight face without admitting they were fantastic games. Same goes for the SNES with games like DK Country, Super Mario World, and A Link to the Past. All of these are legendary titles considered to be some of the best that gaming has to offer.

              In the end, it’s not the Wii Us power that matters, it’s how developers deal the cards they are given. PC is the only platform where powerful hardware actually does matter a lot, but consoles are a different race of being. Look at how amazing games like Crysis 3 are looking on outdated hardware in the 360 and PS3. The PC version of this game, however, is demanding very intense raw power. Anyone who thinks the hardware in the Wii U is outdated is underestimating what can be done to create fun and memorable experiences, and that’s all that matters. Yes, the Wii was outdated. But look at games like Xenoblade, or The Last Story, or Monster Hunter Tri. Better yet, look at Skyward Sword and Mario Kart Wii, which do well to create unique experiences other than the usual button mashing. Don’t underestimate the Wii U because of the hardware. Have an open mind, and wait to see what this system rolls out. It’s way too early to call out rise or fall on the Wii U yet.

          1. Didn’t people say the same for the Wii, DS and 3DS? And to be fair they were all under powered compared to competition.

            1. Its not power you morons, its efficiency. And whats the point of the Vita being a PS3 without the cell? Its trying way to hard and failing because its way too much money for a system with games that do not appeal to me.

              1. thank you they say its the same, but when uncharted golden abyss is great and it nowhere near 2. the vita is trying to be a portable ps3 but sucks at it dats why its tanking and thats why people say it has no games even though over 100 games have been released cause they dont count mediocre exclusives and multiplats

            2. Absolutely, and as I stated in a past article, people like that little Yoshi are just one of unnecessarily many users who are willing to spout the same opposition rhetoric over and over again for every last device Nintendo’s put out, like a decade-old broken record.

              A cycle that will never end… oh well, live and hope, I suppose.

              1. I know you hate me, but please don’t put the time and effort responding to my comments. For now on I will automatically ignore any reply as soon as I see your foolish username. Because I know your just going to be a douce bag and disagree with me, no matter what I say.

                1. I don’t think that the wii u is bad by any means, and if you have little cousins or familly, members, then it’s loads of fun. If you are a solo gamer looking for an online experience, nintendo does lag in that department.

              2. Could you be any more blind, idiotic fanboy? If Nintendo sold a really powerful system for that much, you’d be complaining like crazy. But since it’s Sony it’s perfectly fine… alright sure…

                1. “If Nintendo sold a really powerful system for that much, you’d be complaining like crazy.”

                  No I wouldn’t. That is the direction I want them to take. Also, I ain’t a sony fanboy, more a PC fanboy if anything.

      1. The Wii was way behind in power too and it was the best selling console for a few years until the amount of amazing games started slowing down a couple of years ago. I think the Wii U will do amazingly. Nintendo shows gamers that you don’t need a powerful system to have fun playing games.

        1. Honestly if you have a machine that’s stronger than the PS3 and Xbox 360 while using half the amount of energy and heat couple that with Ninty innovation and when its all in HD anyway power really isnt going to be that much of an issue unless you want to play Crysis 3 and whatever other PC game. When you have the console and the online running smoothly and awesome software ( I havent played a mario so yeah)

          1. as a pc gamer, i can say that the crysis games are super over rated. sure they’re the best looking games ive ever played, but they’re nowhere near as fun as any mario game.

              1. Please look up Super Mario Bros., Super Mario 64, and Super Mario Galaxy. Three of the most innovative and well reviewed games of all time.

                    1. then specify (the words “to me” . Not stating it as a general opinion)mario bros is reloaded i think so too i dont play it that much same with COD dont play it that much too. GTA which seems to be the best this year awesome ps2 games but i could not finish more than 1 ver, story crap game play same in all ps2 games, general stuff same that game was one of the largest cash grabs but still it had a lot of fun things that were there. But once you have spent too many times with the game doing all sorts it boring to do it in another cause they have not added much. but lets see what GTAV has am impressed with what i have seen. but Mario bros is worse

                    2. most of the problems on this site is, youre allowed to have opinions, but people express those opinions like complete fucking jerks. NOBODY seems to just say what the think of anything in a respectful manner and leave it at that. They ALWAYS have to throw out some sort of baiting insult. So, no it has nothing to do with kissing any ass and everything to do with nearly nobody showing even a modicum of respect toward anyone or anything at all.

              2. Crysis is fucking shit.

                It’s the most dull game ever. The only thing is has going for it is visuals.

                Fuck off with your PC master race bullshit.
                ” oh i spent $700 building i my rig, i splooge on my Nvidea GTX card every night”

                WE DON’T GIVE A FUCK, NOBODYDOES.

                The fact that developers can release 8 bit games now and people still buy them proves how irrelevant graphics come to true game quality.

                You are not a gamer, you are a poser compensating, and trying to get all high and mighty because steam sold you train simulator at half price.

                Shut up.

              3. What Mario? be more specific…. i love Mario but not all Marios. Crysis 1 was really only a graphics “show off”, the game was boring like hell, even Far Cry 1 was overrated (the story sucks)…

                You want a example with good graphics, gameplay, story and presentation? Metro 2033 says hi, not Crysis.

              4. uh no it’s not lol. the ai is borderline retarded and every level is the same thing over and over. but it is pretty.

              5. if you dont know the difference between the mario bros series and 3d mario or other games in the mario franchise i suggest you look it up its been a long time that you have said this and i tot by now you should have known but i guess it is not good to overestimate people like there doing with the wiiu

      2. you think so if its like that,that mean the psvita should be flying off the shelf since its more powerful than the 3ds but its not, why cause people dont give a fuck no more about power its about the software and gameplay . nintendo makes great games the dude speaking is a nobody and im a laugh when you guy see the low spec on the new xbox and ps orbis and anyone saying nintendo is not next gen is dumb fuck and doesnt know the meaning of next generation

        1. ” im a laugh when you guy see the low spec on the new xbox and ps orbis ”

          I’m going to laugh at you when you find out the Wii U is another Wii and will have little to no 3rd party support. Also, calling people a “dumb fuck” while not structuring your sentences properly makes you look like a tool. Also, it’s price that’s the difference between 3DS & Vita. That’s it. The Vita has plenty of games.

            1. quality for handheld yes but when you can get a superior version elsewhere with a larger installed base no. and price is what the 3ds has over the vita 1st but why do you think animal crossing is flying in japan cause out of all the ds and wii versions it is superior, same with MH3g and Mario kart. No game like KI:U is on the wiiu or wii or ds. revelations is not the best to most people hence no high sales. and have you seen the third party support in japan almost every week siliconera have one minor or not so major announce ment

          1. Tons of games? Oh yeah! You’re right! Like Uncharted featuring asshole extraordinaire Nathan Drake, watered down PS3 games, and a bunch of shit only Japanese childern and weaboos would play. OH YEAH, JELLYBEAN! Man that’s one hell of a game library!

            1. “Japanese childern and weaboos would play” Gravity Rush, Persona 4 Golden, Ragnarok Odessy, Shinobido,etc. Honestly it’s like you are just upset and are bringing in another console from another company into the argument. This article is about someone whining about SMG2(Which is awesome in my opinion) and Nintendo, But many people have found some crazy way to bring in vita to defend themselves as if their pride is at stake so (Ok time to bash something else to feel good!). Get over yourself kid.

                    1. Did I ever say I didn’t? No. I’ve played with plenty of Nintendo Systems. Nintenlord said no one is playing with the Vita, I then asked for proof, what the fuck does your comment have to do with anything?

                    1. No he is kinda right, there are several quality games on Vita, is it as much as the 3DS? Well that all depends on what you like. If you want console quality games with a beautiful display & scenery, then go for the Vita. If you want great handheld content & Nintendo franchises with glasses-free 3D, get the 3DS. If you want to experience both console quality games & Nintendo franchises, get both. To say the Vita has little quality games with out properly looking at what it has is fanboyish & stupid. It’s like when people complain about the Wii not having good games, yet they don’t educate themselves on the library enough.

                1. Thank you for the correction.

                  I don’t know, I just keep getting mixed up between the two -___- My brain needs to stop being so lazy.

                    1. Me too drinking is need is a rip rip of how can any 1 cuartel money for something that taste like piss but the ocational cup of wine.

              1. yep, but they don´t sell.. when you go to a shop you don´t find many Vita games, because as they dont sell retailers also do not keep them in stock

          2. everyone nostradamus these days. why the hell do people care how the wii U or the theoretical new consoles coming in the coming years may or may not do as if theyre directly invested in a contest that doesnt exist? you dont want to be berrated for your opinions as you had said earlier in the thread, yet you spend a lot of time berrating others opinions. let them go, take a highroad, relax.

      3. Sony is the one that will die. There wont even be a PS4 with Sonys situation. So between Wii U and the Xbox 720 where else will devs go? Steam Box or Ouya lol. Wii U will be dominant in the 8th gen. Indie devs will choose Wii U cause Nintendo doesnt charge them to update and fix there games like Microsoft who charges $40,000 for a single patch. Once Wii U gets party chat it will be the better choice for online since its free. As for Multiplats…people dont buy a Nintendo system for multiplats. They get them for Nintendos games. Nintendo being HD, Zelda HD, Metroid HD, Smash Bros that alone gives Nintendo the 8th gen.

        1. hey dick, i like nintendo as much as the next guy but lets you and i(meaning you) try something new and not worry about whether or nto play stations or xboxes “die” so to speak. IT DOESNT FKNG MATTER. do what you enjoy and quit putting people down for doing what they enhoy, its pointless.

      4. OH I don’t see any new smash bros, zelda, metroid, mario kart, star fox, or any “strong” titles yet…too soon boy, what you saying about new games? god of war 4 with a new weapon, a new call of duty with 2 more perks, new gears of war 4 with one extra campain…..lol

      5. It’s true it will be lacking in hardware in a year or two. However it won’t “fail” because of it. The Wii was crazy successful. Outsold everything else.

      6. yeah you must be right because the ps vita is more powerful than the 3ds and that should mean its doing great, and out of ps3,wii, and 360 the ps3 should be number 1 in sales because of power right and that should also mean genesis and snes got killed by the 64bit atari jaguar right so power and capabilities of a console mean shit its all about the games which makes nintendo succed.

      7. Yup that underpowered Wii system was such a flop :::rolleyes:::

        How about some trivia… The second most played game in history is…. Wii sports… What’s the first? The original Super Mario Brothers on NES.

        The wii was a smashing success and beat the pants off of the PS3 and 360 combined…. and did it with PS2 level graphics.

    2. ^ My thoughts through the entire article.

      We don’t care about Size Five Games. We don’t know who Dan Marshall is. And we all know that Super Mario Galaxy 2 was even better than the original in almost every way.

      The only debatable part over whether or not the first one was better than the second was that Super Mario Galaxy 2 lacked an actual hub like normal 3D Mario games. Starship Mario did not suffice—it was funny for the first few hours of gameplay to be traveling through space on top of Mario’s head, but it doesn’t last long until you start thinking about why Nintendo decided to go in this direction with the game’s hub. The level overview map made me think of Super Mario Bros. 3 design though, and I liked the ability to pick what levels I wanted to replay quickly.

      At the end, the only aspect of Super Mario Galaxy that I like over its sequel was that—the overworld hub. It is still fun for me to go back from time-to-time just to fly around the Comet Observatory, collect all of the hidden 1-Up Mushrooms, and find an observatory to travel to faraway galaxies. It’s just a timeless experience that never gets old, much like traversing Isle Delfino or Princess Peach’s Castle.

      As said before, EVERYTHING about Super Mario Galaxy 2, other than that, is better than the first game. From difficulty progression, to level design, and boss/enemy encounters the game is a masterpiece.

          1. yeah his opinion holds about as much weight as all you fucking idiots stating your absolutes about which consoles are better, nintendo, play station or xboxes. shit doesnt matter. just enjoy what you enjoy and quit worrying about what others like and wasting your time putting them down for it.

        1. I just think of Elf after reading these first 3 comments. “There’s singing on the North Pole” “No, there’s not” “Yes there is!”

      1. No the game is ASTONISHING. It doesn’t matter if you don’t like it. That doesn’t change the fact that the game is perfect.

        If Aeolus says Ocarina is a bad game , does that mean it’s a bad game ? No , pretty sure it’s the best game ever made. …….

          1. 10M+ all the reviews and metascores beg to differ.

            What I’m trying to say is , if something Like Ocarina or Mario Galaxy is regarded as some of , if not the greatest games of all time , then they must be doing something right. The 5% of haters are irrelivant to the positivity of the game.

            Ocarina is probably the greatest and most important game ever made. If someone like you doesn’t like it , that doesn’t change every other persons opinion.

          1. Yoshi, you are such an asshole and you have no life. I don’t see why trolls like you are on a Nintendo site anyway. Leave us alone jackass.

                  1. I’m mainly here because:

                    A) I only dislike Nintendo’s new direction, years ago I loved them
                    B) I like to state my opinions on topics :D

                    1. Hmmm, intresting….
                      To answer that question you gave that other guy, I’m mainly here to observe and laugh at the ignorance around here. Cuz as I’m sure you’ve noticed, it’s EVERYWHERE on this site… Am I right?

      2. yes it is, please if you think its bad, tell me reasons why it is because MG2 is more innovated than game ive played. I remember one developer I forgot who mention that one world is like and entire game already in other games, might be a bit more exaggeration on his comment but the point was the game is that good and very hard to 100% complete it.

  1. I personally stopped reading at the Mario Galaxy 2 bored him shitless part. I can’t agree with that. But each to their own of course.

      1. Well no. He has a point that all Nintendo release is Mario, Zelda, Pokemon etc. Most of the time they are sort of the same games. What game devs and gamers need to see is that Sequels are ruining gaming as a whole. People don’t want sequels they want new games, new ideas. If you give someone that then it will make people buy the console. If people see the same game has been released on a different console they are bound to turn away.

        1. All of Nintendo’s creations revolve around Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Animal Crossing and Pikmin… what more do you expect?

          1. But its the repetitive of those games that are driving people away. If Nintendo want to do well in terms of software. We need new games.

                    1. Cod, Halo, Borderlands… aren´t all the same repetitive fps thing ? and people say that Nintendo is repetitive…. seriously, some people need a doctor.

              1. I really hope you’re fucking joking. Seriously, so “troll” somewhere else, or, not at all?
                By the way, 4 3D Mario games ever made since the N64. 6 FPS Halo games since the Xbox. Mario’s a what now?

                1. How many mario games are there in general? FUCK LOADS. A majority of Nintendo franchises have been milked to death.

                  1. The only Nintendo Franchises that are Milked are Mario & Pokémon. Zelda only sees 1-2 releases per platform. Do you even know of all the other stuff Nintendo offers? Fire Emblem, Sin & Punishment, Xenoblade, Golden Sun, Metroid, Pikmin, Donkey Kong, Wario Land, Smash Bros. etc.

                  2. Yeah, and theyre in different genres!
                    2D Mario, 3D Mario, Mario RPG(turned based, and action),tacing, party, you can single it out as rehashing whenthe games are conpletely different genres. Who fucking cares? As for every other Nintendo franchise, Zelda is the inly one that comes close to the amount Mario has, Metroid has only had 8 games, ever

                    1. “they’re in different genres”

                      NSMBDS, NSMBWII, NSMB2, SM3DL, Mario Galaxy, Mario Galaxy 2, NSMBU, are all the same motherfucking genre and released within the span of 6 years. Two of those came the same year as well.

                    2. Aelous can´t tell the difference between 2d and 3d platforms gameplay…. this guy really has a problem

                  1. It’s a successful franchise, it would be logical for any non-retarded person to want to make lots of money out of it. If Sony had a franchise THAT successful, I’m sure they’d milk it just as much.

                1. Yeah, because a ban is going to be so effective. Why would they ban me who is just stating an opinion and not you who is being a dick to Alba, hmmm? ;)

                  1. Ban would be ineffective you say? Oh my fucking god! Are implying that you would use a proxy to comment on this site? Holy shit? Get a life!

                    1. Very immature insult, Jellybean. Don’t even bother trying if that’s the best you can come up with.

                    2. Funny, didn’t you call me a pathetic cunt? I think that’s a bit more immature than idiot. Wow, someone must have dementia.

        2. Let me teach you a lesson. With innovative games from the Mario and Zelda series your beloved Madden and Call of Duty would most likely not exist.

                    1. Let’s get back on topic. If Mario and Zelda suck, why are so many of the series games on that list?

            1. Ooooohhhh…Do we have a PC elitist here? If Mario and Zelda suck I need to explain why they are so high on this list.

            2. Ok … Really jellybean ??? REALLY ?? Zelda sucks ???? What kind of games doesn’t then ???? Zelda is and will be the best game ever made in the history of gaming ….. It doesn’t need blood and sex to be the best

        3. Fire Emblem: Awakening, Punch-Out!!, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Xenoblade Chronicles, Kid Icarus: Uprising… You were saying.

        4. Man, Mario, Zelda and Pokemon are completely different games. And, no, people don´t want new games. Check out the sales boards and will see that new franchises don´t sell well until the second or third installment. What are the games with better sales so far ? CoD. Assassin´s Creed, Just Dance, Super Mario. Fifa. None of them are new IPs.

  2. So he has a problem with Galaxy 2 being like Galaxy, and he mentions he plays Call of Duty, but has no problem there’s a new one each year? Interesting.

      1. No, it’s not as good as Mario. Yes I HAD Black Ops II on Wii U. I sold it already since it was boring. NSMB U > Black Ops II

        1. All day. Mario shits on CoD. Mario is the undisputed Master of Video games. And his Main games are always innovative and amazing. CoD is the undisputed Cancer of video gaming. There’s a difference.

          CoD is OK , it’s fun nailing people over and over and over again. Then it becomes no fun at all when you’ve nailed too many people.

          1. Don’t even bother getting into an argument with this useless piece of duck cunt. I seen his comments, all he says is “Mario sucks” or “Call of Duty is better” giving no argument to back up his statement. Then when some disagrees with him he acts like a spoiled child and says “I’m right and you’re wrong” once again giving no argument to back up his claims. Probally some pre-pubescent prick who’s typing his comments from his mommy’s iPad.

          2. I’d say Zelda is the master of video games xD Mario is the more accessible one.
            Miyamoto seemed to forget that when creating Skyward Sword ._.

                1. I mean the franchise as a whole. But yeh , Link gets the credit. Zelda is no use to anyone apart from being a bit of eye candy…

          3. Although to be fair, Mario Galaxy is probably the closest thing i’ve seen to a perfect game. I actually can’t think of anything wrong with it…other than it had to end xD

      2. that’s your opinion. I never really understood what was so great about the franchise because it doesn’t really offer more to me than just to point aim and shoot. There’s no incentive to get better in the game, at least not from what I’ve seen; if there was an incentive, it’s very little. However my beliefs on COD doesn’t plague my judgement of the genre though because I love borderlands

    1. ridiculous i have nothing against america but it is the most shallow game industry i know with stupid comment from analyst CEOs, editors, and guys on the net seem all so blind COD is great noting wrong with yearly release but one mario bros per console is a reharsh

  3. So he says he got his fill with Wii Sports’ tennis as well as SMG1, NINTENDO games, but then he claims Nintendo has problems making software?

  4. Hey fuck you Dan Marshall.

    This is just some irrelivant Douchebags opinion. Mario galaxy 2 is easily one of the Best 3D platforming Games I’ve ever played. In the top 5. Mario Galaxy 1 was the game that innovated and changed everything. Mario Galaxy 2 is just the perfect sequel to that game.

    The general attitud amongst critics and the 10M+ who bought the game is that this game is pretty much a masterpiece. The only way you couldn’t like this , is if YOU didn’t like this. That doesn’t mean the game isn’t perfect.

    I Found the Uncharted Trilogy massively overated, Moving on .

      1. Exactly. If people had the almighty ”Dan Marshalls” attitude towards Nintendo – then fuck off and don’t play Nintendo. Is that so hard to Understand ? Is it worth your effort saying Negative things about a company that you personally don’t like ?

        Who gives a shit if someone else doesn’t like something that you do ?. It’s like a vegetarian saying Bacon and sausages are horrible. When we full well know they are essential to our existence…

          1. It didn’t change my opinion. Still a irrelevant, hypocrite. When nintendo make a sequel, omg why we dont want mario ever year when cod dose with little to any changes best game ever!!! then when nintendo stop making a mario game for 2 years or so where my mario fix!! retarded wankerrs

        1. Wow, he was probably just asked a question by an interviewer and gave his honest opinion. I thought you Nintendroids were all for people having opinions? Guess not …

          1. Sadly I will have to agree with you at this point …. Everybody has his own taste …. But seeing idiots like this guy saying that. nintendo games sucks over and over … That what is wrong .. I don’t need blood or sex to have fun playing …. Sadly this generation only thinks about these sort of games .. I just hope this changes soon

      1. Oh man, agreed on that.
        I never played the first Uncharted, but i loved Uncharted 2, i liked the story, the gameplay, the voice acting was awesome, it was funny, the visuals were probably the best i’ve seen at the time, the locations were great, the soundtrack, thought it was an amazing game, but 3 just did nothing new, what so ever, the gameplay was exactly the same, the story was uninteresting to go with it’s terrible villian character, it was nowhere near as funny, in fact i dont remember a single joke from 3, but i can remember a good handful of ones from 2, the level desin wasnt as interesting, it was just a poor poor sequel :/

      1. Not any mario game. Mario Galaxy is a Masterpiece. It’s not overated or under rated it’s just a masterpiece. Some may think Uncharted is , I do not.

                  1. Well ………. it is a masterpiece of a game …………. *twiddles fingers like mr burns*

                    I’m fune cheers lol. U ?

      2. Because every Mario game is the same genre….

        You’re worse than when people argue over Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Oh, what’s better Mega Man 2 or Mega Man Legends, i duno, 2 entirely different fucking games

        1. I was referring to what NIntedward was saying, please make your comments have some relevance to what we are talking about.

                  1. No im from a coutry that gay people and straight people respect each other. If a gay in my coutry try to hit on me i will say im not interested and they will leave but on your country you have to let them rape you or the suit you.

                    1. So why did you try and use “having man on man sex” as an insult then? hmmm? Also I live in Australia, we respect everyone who deserves our respect.

  5. Another thing, we live in an age where people buy sequels and not so much the new stuff. It’s not just Nintendo using the same genres/characters, it’s all developers. Call of Duty has a number after it, so does Halo, Gears, God of War, Final Fantasy… everything that’s top notch. Developers find a formula and enhance the series (most of the time) with each sequel/prequel, etc.

  6. In other news…Super Mario Galaxy 2 is the third highest rated game of all-time. I would love to know much Microsoft is paying his creep. Nintendo’s main problem is their games?! Does that Nintendo’s first party games are far better than Sony and Microsoft have or will ever offer? Does he not know that even Michael Patcher thinks Nintendo’s first-party games are amazing? I honestly can’t believe people like this are considered “professionals” in the video game industry.

      1. A game that do almost everything diffrent wen is released is boring but a game that repeats the same thing over and over(even more so than Mario )is fun? Also if he worked on any meaning full game like fez,minecraft,journey or even fucking solitary his opinion could have a bit of meaning.

      2. Your logic for agreeing with a guy who makes sexual education video games is utter bullshit.

        When people dont know what in the fuck they arent talking about its apparent
        He didnt like Galaxy 2 because it felt like Galaxy 1. I thought the point of the sequel was to maintain core experiences and update everything that surrounds that core experience.

          1. Stop trying to sound intimidating to feel so good about yourself… you’re not funny or slick or anything. You’re just trying to make people mad and you’re not very good at it. 0/10

            1. 1) Wasn’t trying to sound intimidating or funny
              2) Not making people mad? You must not know how to read at all. I’ve mad plenty of people mad just on this post alone.

  7. Dan Marshall article for me lasted longer than his experience with Galaxy 2. I got bored reading the topic of this. Atleast he gave Galaxy an hour. I didn’t give him a second.

  8. “I haven’t turned my Wii on in three years probably – it’s been gathering dust because it’s all Mario games that I’m not interested in”
    He hasnt touched his wii in three years? So he only buys mario games? That’s his fault then. He should expand his library of games. What about some nice LoZ, or Xenoblade Chronicles? There’s also SSBB, Kirby, Wario Ware, Pikmin and much more.

    1. Exactly. People need to realize there is more to Nintendo outside of Mario. You also forgot Fire Emblem, Sin & Punishment, & DKCR

  9. did this guy just say mario galaxy 2 is boring because its the same game as the last and then give call of duty a compliment

  10. Well a Metacritic average of 97 from a whopping 88 critics would disagree with him. His entire comment is the same argument we heard about the Wii and then he says he hasn’t turned on his Wii in 3 years because no good games have come out. Hmmmm. Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword, Super Mario Galaxy 2, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Little Kings Story, Punch Out!, Cave Story, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Kirby’s Epic Yarn, Sin and Punishment, Rayman Origins, Xenoblade Chronicles, and Rhythm Heaven Fever. Yeah I don’t think so. I don’t know why he cares about powerful hardware anyway. Have you looked at his website? His indie games could run on a toaster. What a moron.

    1. He just killed his company whit that bold statement now if he get some 1 to publish his game they have to be above Nintendo standars.

  11. This is just laughable. Genuinely laughable. Is he talking about the same SMG2 which is considered by many to be the second best game of all time?

  12. In order to really understand where this guy is coming from, you need to experience his “game” called “Privates”, a sex education game.

  13. I totally disagree, the Wii U is awesome and the Classic Nintendo titles will likely never be played out. Nintendo franchise games (Mario, Metroid, Zelda, etc,) have incredibly large followings and their fans get tremendously excited about seeing their favorite characters in new stories. Nintendo also creates new franchises that traditional and nontraditional gamers love, Luigi’s Mansion and Professor Layton being examples. Nintendo does a great job of creating new story and game play elements that keep franchise fan bases happy, there’s a lot of excitement about the Wii U. Mr. Marshall hasn’t even played it. I have, and it’s pretty damn awesome.

  14. How could he say that the Wii’s power didn’t justify ports of games like COD, when the COD games all were ported to the Wii? :/

  15. Well honestly it’s not BORING, it’s just a rehash, same thing as Mario Galaxy with little added, even Miyamoto has admitted it. It’s a good game, but it’s basically Call of Mario Galaxy 2.

    1. Just felt like glorified DLC. I didn’t nesseccarily have a problem with it, i when what i’m really expecting picking up a game called Mario Galaxy 2, released 2 years after the first, but yeah, certainly not boring. Not as good, but not boring, nowhere near.

  16. “Bored shitless”

    Ok, i agree that Mario Galaxy that spark of the original, and some levels were B-team levels in comparison, anyone who say’s it’s better is either personal opinion or blind fanboy, but it’s certainly not boring.
    And bored shitless? Really? How does anyone expect to find this guy credible or proffesional talking like that, at a game thats at number 3 on game rankings.

    How the fuck do these people get the following and even their own website, and career? Follows who are equally stupid, blind fanboys?
    I would give a leg to have a job reviewing games, all i see everyday i bias, advertised, unproffessional, and frankly idiotic reviewers and gaming sites, morons like this guy.

    I like all the consoles, although the 360 just didnt interet me with its software, Halo isn’t enough, and i respect any form of gaming as long as it’s good, there’s effort put into it, and it’s not just a lazy cash in sequel, like COD, that he praises so much.
    I’d give Mario Galaxy a 9.5, and 2 a 8.5-9, and games like God of War 3 and Bioshock 9’s, but i’m not blind to see games like Skyward Sword and Other M only deserve a 7, same with Halo 4 and Uncharted 3.

  17. Bullshit!
    He says that Nintendo Uses Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, Metroid and all others to the point of self destruction. I ony agree with the NSMB series, but saying Nintendo is over usng them is stupid. Nintendo has the most mascots to represent their company than any others. Also I wouldn’t agree that Mario Galixy 2 is boring, it was just now “New”. Pachter had better stuff to say about Nintendo.

  18. It’s not really fair to judge all Nintendo games based off of a recent Mario title. Super Mario hasn’t been good in twenty years. Zelda, Metroid and Pokémon are still excellent, and Pikmin 3 looks like it’ll be solid. Xenoblade Chronicles was an excellent title, and Donkey Kong Country Returns was a step in the right direction for that franchise. I would be willing to be that if F-Zero and StarFox were put back on the right track, they would be excellent as well. I really don’t think Nintendo games are hurting TOO badly TBH.

  19. BORING? Who the heck is this weirdo, and how could he think that one of the greatest Wii games is boring? Probably just because Mario doesn’t go around with a gun and shoot people’s heads off.

  20. Honestly, super mario galaxy 2 is good but just not great. It feels more like an add-on rather than being a direct sequel. In all honesty, it’s just a re-telling of the same story with the addition of Yoshi and added difficulty to the levels. It’s basically what the first installment should’ve been to begin with.

    as far as the Wii U being a hardware generation behind, I still find it difficult to believe that, especially after seeing a couple of project cars trailers. If it was a hardware generation behind, then explain the internet browser, how it can multitask well, the fact that the multiplats it shares with the 360 and PS3 look a bit better on the system itself and not the other 2 and it’s only a month and a half old. It’s only just begun and yet you already cast it aside without giving it proper time to flourish. Sure you are expressing your opinion but you are stating it as though you can see into the future.

    And about Nintendo putting out those staples again and again, why not be fair and get on Microsoft? Sony? God knows if crash, spyro, jak & daxter, and megaman were getting as much support from Sony as Ninten’s flagships were, we’d hear people whistling the same tune about them.

    1. Glorified DLC as many have put it :p
      Still enjoyed it though, i didn’t want Mario Galaxy to end, so when 2 came out and i finished it i felt like a had my fill.

      1. I’ve forgotten that crash and spyro weren’t owned by naughty dog anymore since they’ve been outta commission for so.. long… and as far as megaman goes, I’ve never really seen mega man fall under any of the other companies aside from Sony except for the MMZ and ZX series.

          1. lol I’m 19. I was around when metal sonic had made his debut xD. Not it’s not because I’m too young, i just never cared for who made the game, as long as the game was good to great.

                1. I was born in 1993. Yes I do remember the megaman before that. Just as I said before, idc who makes the games, as long as the games have above average quality in most areas.

      2. When Crash 3 is one of my favourite games ever, it’s hard not to complain :/
        You’d think Sony, Naughty Dog and Insomniac would the rights, seeing as how loved they are by fans.
        An old school Crash or Spyro game is the sort of thing that would make me buy a Vita.

        1. Well, I know they FINALLY released the original trilogy on Vita/PS3. At least they’re doing something right with the series :P

          1. Crash or Spyro?
            Crash has been on PSN in the UK since i got my PS3 in 2009.
            I know for some reason we haven’t had Spyro though :/

            1. The PSOne Spyro games have been on the PSN in North America for a while too. I have all the Crash and Spyro games on my PS3 right now. :)

              But something fresh would be nice too.

              1. I read a while back it had something to do with the legal usage bullshit in Europe, Universal Europe or something, i duno, Activision being arseholes, unsurprisingly.
                Which is a shame, i loved the original, and 2.

          1. Making too much money on Skylanders ._.
            But we could at least have Crash :/ gaming’s come a long way since the last real Crash game, so have Naughty Dog, they could make some pretty insane stuff.

            1. Activision said they have no plans for Crash any time soon and wouldn’t even let the characters in PS All-Stars (without some ridiculous terms), I am not going to hold my breath for a new game.

              If they surprise me and do make a game, I’ll be really happy, no doubt (that is, if it turns out good).

              1. true. If they make a crash game that has the level graphics seen in today’s gaming that manages to capture the quality that was in the original trilogy, I’ll be ecstatic.

  21. So many Sorny trolls and Microshit slaves still harrasing Nintendo.
    But what do your Gods do people?
    *coughs* PS Move, Kinect, Kinect Sports, Wonderbook, Kinect Fitness, Hollywood Crap, The same so called childish games you blame Nintendo for, PSP, Vita, Touchscreen and worst of all the same speeches Nintendo said years ago about all these things.
    Other than that, most games you even like in these consoles are made by 3rd party companies not Sorny or Microshit themselves.
    Yes you must be really proud of yourselves.
    How about taking a look in your own turf before blaming Nintendo stupid fascists.

  22. it is not as boring as the plethora first person shooters out there i think since they where able to produce 3d graphics they have just go more and more. if you won’t to talk about boring and also there is no indication on what the other consoles are going to be like at this moment in time.

  23. Man…. I don’t know why, but I’m still suprised ever since the day I joined this site, how much you guys are just ignorant annoying twats… It’s amazing really. Keep coming back, just hoping to possibly see one decent person out there…. and still nothing…. Just, crazy man…

    1. I’ve gotta agree. I check in on this site about twice a month, read a few comment sections, and I honestly find it pathetic how some people get so freaking emotional over comments someone makes about a videogame. Rarely do I see a rationally minded person on here. You’ve got people on here posting stuff like, “OMG he’s a FUCKING DUMBASS! Doesnt he know that this is the best game of all time?!” or attacking other commenters with stuff like “You really need to get laid.” You know why My Nintendo News posts non-stories like this? Because they know how attached some of you guys are to your opinions on videogames. They know that a statement like Dan Marshall’s will just start the next World War among you guys. That’s why none of them try to stop it. The people who own this site love when this stuff happens. You guys belong to one of the worst comment sections I’ve ever seen. It’s pathetic reading this kind of stuff. Just accept the dude’s God**** opinion on SMG2, okay? I personally liked it, and his comment doesn’t bother me in the least. He doesn’t like a videogame? You guys respond as if he’s punched your best friend in the face. Just stop investing yourself so emotionally in videogames. Get off the computer, drop the controller, and do something real with your life.

      In other news, OMG HALO 4 IS TEH BEST GAME OF ALL TIMEEEEE, WAY BETTER THAN ZELDA WITCH IS TEH SAME GAME OF EVERY TIME!!!11!!

        1. I honestly was shocked to read your comment. You pretty much read my mind at that moment exactly. It was so unlike anything I’ve ever seen on this site. It inspired me enough to actually make a comment! And I’ve never wanted to comment here!

  24. Honestly, what’s with all the people going ape shit over opinions they dissagree with? I’m fan of Nintendo, but I’m not going to insult this guy because he played a game he didn’t like. And I certainly won’t dick ride a company 24/7. I can admit when Nintendo fucks up, why can’t you people?

  25. I really don’t care what he thinks. His opinion may be completely valid and I am the crazy person for playing Nintendo games. I have fun and I don’t care if you hate me for it. You can do it, go ahead. I will keep buying Nintendo until It is no longer fun to me.

  26. Guys does make good points though. I’m a long time Nintendo fan and the Wii U has been very unimpressive. And they seriously have to stop milking Mario. Super Mario Galaxy might be one of the greatest games of its generation…but the sequel was just a carbon copy with no soul.

      1. I have found it unimpressive, If I found out impressive I would of bought one, but I haven’t, little to no games catch my eye at all.

        1. The PS3 and Xbox weren’t exactly that impressive at launch either… give it some time, sheesh you’re so impatient… I’m sure plenty of awesome games will be announced at E3. In fact, the Wii U had the second most amount of launch games of all time, and yet you think it has no games, when it’s only been a month or two. Retard.

          1. I know they weren’t impressive, that’s why I didn’t buy those consoles at launch either. And yes I believe it has no games as the exclusives don’t appeal to me and most 3rd party are old ports. So in my opinion, yes it is unimpressive. Faggot.

      2. Please, back up your argument.
        ”Bullshit” is a bit vague.
        Truth is: I really wanted to be impressed by the Wii U, but everything so far has been a disappointment.

  27. Guys, Shut the Fuck Up! I Loved Mario Galaxy 2, He Didn’t, Lets get Drunk And Beat Off, You’ll Feel Better…(;

  28. This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Because assassin’s creeds/ Call of Duty/ FIFA are not the same game every year and they sell millions. Not only was Mario Galaxy 2 different to its predecessor, every level was different than the previous. So everything that came out of his mouth was bogus.

  29. LOL This was the funniest thing I ever read on this site! I think he’s talking about the ‘Get 8 million stars’ approach they’ve been taking. There are soooo many stars that you don’t care when you actually get one- it’s just,’Ok. 1 down 7,999,999 to go.’ The gameplay, however is near-flawless, or else no one would’ve ever finished it. Thanks for the laugh, guy!

  30. Seems to me this guys totally off base. I hear what he’s saying if its nintendo needs 3rd party support. He’s right there, but I think nintendo is making headway there.. They r getting that support… But to say the first party titles aren’t up to snuff, dead wrong. C’mon r you serious? That’s just rediculous. Nintendo in terms of creating revolutionary games and ways to play them… That is there stick.. As long As Nintendo can keep the 3rd party’s turnin up on the Wii u and combine that with great nintendo titles … The future is bright

  31. Eh, from my experience, Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a good game, but not a great game. I did enjoy it, but not as much as the critics rave about it. It just felt too much of the same with me; it felt like Super Mario Galaxy 1.5 or DLC, if anything.

    Sure, the soundtrack is awesome, sure there are some pretty well-designed levels here and there, and maybe Yoshi is fun to use at times, but, ultimately, it’s Super Mario Galaxy with different levels. All the incredibly, new factor, new engine, the first Super Mario Galaxy has.

  32. Never heard of this guy. Anyhow, same thing said about the Wii, and it outsold its competitors. Plus,the reason Nintendo has been in business for over 25 years is DUE to its software! Also, some of Nintendo games for the Wii are some of the highest rated games during last gen!

  33. No matter how great a game or series (or console) is, you’re still gonna see a bunch of people complaining because of one reason or the other. But if Super Mario Galaxy 2 was boring, then why am I wishing there was a Super Mario Galaxy 3? Sure, SMG2 felt like just a continuence of the first SMG, but is that really a bad thing? These are high quality, state of the art, award winning games. You can’t go wrong with these games. They’re so darn fun and creative.

    1. It’s a mainly subjective statement. Personally, I wouldn’t want a Super Mario Galaxy 3 since I felt that Super Mario Galaxy 2 took it a little too far. I would prefer if Mario had a new 3D series based on something different. We could still have the high quality parts of it, just used in a different matter so we get even less critics than the guys that say “Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a rehash, it’s boring!”

      1. nintendo is sure to freshen up the franchise soon, like they’ve always done and likely will continue to do.. might just be the next 3D mario game for the wii u

  34. This guy says he hasn’t touched his wii in what? Three years? Seems to me this guy had a Wee in his hand, His mouth, and his butt while he wrote this pile of dog shit!

  35. I don’t understand it lately, why does American gamers(360 owners only) and analyst hate japanese made consoles and software so much?

    1. Lets face it .. A lot of American gamers, are pissed off , gun obsessed, knuckle dragging, Neanderthals. That voted for mitt Romney . If it doesn’t have a high powered weapon, and a load of violence in it… They dont get it… Don’t get me wrong not all yanks are like this… Mostly Microsoft fanboys :) and yes I’m drom the u.s.

      1. Well put my friend, I have owned a 360 before I sold it and got a PS3, and I have a modded Wii, getting a WiiU around Spring, and as someone who has been playing video games since the early 90s with SNES, which I still have and buy and play games today, all i can do is put my head down in shame when I see 5-12 year olds beggin parents for COD,Halo,etc. compared to when I was around 8 we was dyin for the next Mario,Sonic,etc. I’m 20 years old and I often get ridiculed because I don’t find most M-rated titles appealing, unless it’s something like Grand Theft Auto. But the worst of it is that Im a JRPG guy, and I find Western RPGs dull and boring but I get bashed for my tastes. I like colors with my games, and as such I prefer more fantasy based games, if I want to look at brownish gray, realistic stuff, I can just go outside.

          1. Yep because of the bullshit gaming media sites and some shows, which I blame alot of it for all this hate it needs to die, fanboys, and the worst of all graphic whores, The WiiU is probably gonna be my last home console. No need for an expensive PS4, got all the games I need on PS3, and the Xbox 720………………….lol yeah right. Going to convert to PC by next year. Why are most American gamers so ungrateful, most complaining, brainwashed, picky, spoiled, and one-sided nowadays?

  36. Shigeru Miyamoto and company made super mario galaxy 2. This dude needs to respect creativity he can never reach, even if his entire family merged heads.

    1. Just goes to show you that the media is evil, they know WiiU will be successful and all the 1st party software, but their trying to get you to read their professional troll speech to get “you” to change your mind of giving WiiU or if it’s your first Nintendo home console, a chance. I can’t help it though, but I wished gaming news and media would die already and let the gamer and consumer make the choice and hear from in person reviews if he or she wants to try out a new game or console. If people could do it back before internet existed, why not now?

  37. WHO THE FUCK IS Dan Marshall??? He would be happy if he would hadmade a Game like Super Mario Galaxy!!! Stupid and ridicoulus blog post like everything here on this blog!!! I am sure that the Blog writers had a little attention from there mom when they was young ;)

  38. So this is boring:

    Okay. Whatever you say, sir.

    I do find it hilarious that he said it took an hour for him to get bored, yet this review says “There are more inspired ideas in just an hour of Super Mario Galaxy 2 than some games present in their entirety.”

    Also, someone please get this man a copy of Xenoblade Chronicles. Xenoblade may be many things, but it is neither “boring” nor is it a “Wii dust creator.”

  39. yeah.. he kinda disqualified himself to be taken seriously in any way with that statement

    MG2 and MG1 are definitely not the same.. far from it

    1. I’ll quote the above review again, as it’s basically what Kehool just said: “…structure is the only area in which the game feels even vaguely derivative.”

  40. So let me get this straight… this guy judged Mario Galaxy 2 based on the first HOUR?! *laughs out loud* Might as well judge a book (or video game) by it’s cover. XD

    1. I don’t really agree with his views in the slightest, but I doubt he’s wanting people to think he’s stupid…
      He might be trying to put his opinion out there, like all of you do. You guys are allowed to think SMG2 is an amazing game, no? So why shouldn’t this guy be allowed to think differently..?

      1. He’s allowed to, but to decide so after only having put an hour’s worth of time out of it does not allow for a fair nor accurate representation of the game’s quality.
        That’s where his opinion falls flat; he’s deciding based off of extremely limited time playing it that the entire game sucks, and is using something similar to that as his reasoning behind why the Wii U will fail, all at once.

        Analysts aren’t as professional as they used to be. This guy is disgracing his job title, and it’s sounding more and more like he was paid off to say negative things about the Wii U for the sheer sake of it.

          1. Point taken. He’s still analyzing an hour’s worth of a game and deeming a new console a failure based upon that franchise, and the likelihood that he won’t like future games from said franchise on said new console, though.

            I mean, seriously. Think about it.
            What reasonable gamer actually judges an entire console, that’s just barely begun its life cycle, a failure, due to a game on a past system that they didn’t like too much? One that they only spent an hour on, at that?

            It’s along the same BS mindset that certain PC elitists tote around with them regarding consoles.
            They don’t like one thing about a console, and instantly blow it out of proportion for the sake of condemning it further.
            It’s not that much better than that Bill troll, really. The only difference is that this guy curses less and sounds marginally more intelligent, even if his views are inherently flawed.

  41. Well, he’s got Nintendo on one point. They do tend to recycle from time to time. The first hint of this lazy quality I detected was back when New Super Mario Bros Wii was released. Not only was it essentially a Wii version of what we’d already seen on the DS (right down to the character sprites and background music) but we were told it would have been too challenging to offer a different 4th playable character other than a second Toad.

    I disagree that SMB Galaxy 2 was boring because I really enjoyed it, but the cookie cutter method Nintendo is using with the New Super Mario Bros. franchise is a fine example of their ability to reuse what they’ve made before. Skyward Sword was a gem but how upset do you think fans would be if it simply replicated the game play and visual style of Twilight Princess? The Mario franchise feels like they’ve got a template and all they have to do is rearrange the levels. And we keep buying it. I’m guilty of buying New Super Mario Bros. 2 for my 3DS and New Super Mario Bros U for my Wii U. I did this of my own free will knowing full well they wouldn’t be all that different from what I’d seen before from that franchise. In this case Nintendo is blatantly producing the same game over and over again whereas in the 80s and 90s they at least had the creative balls to mix up the visual style. Did SMB 2 or 3 look like a clone of part one? No, but the Japanese SMB2 did. Maybe that’s when it started.

    I love Nintendo but do see a danger in no one putting up a fuss, not even myself, about buying the same game over and over again. They’ve been quoted as saying we haven’t seen a new F-Zero since the Gamecube because there is nothing new they could bring to the franchise. That isn’t stopping the New Super Mario titles. Maybe Dan Marshall is onto something, but like so many anti-Nintendo reviewers he’s given us his point in a hostile way.

  42. While Galaxy 2 was a great game, I like the first Galaxy more. The Bowser battles were more intense (imo) and I loved the hub. Also the first game felt a little more fresh to me.

  43. wiiu isnt next gen what fuuking planet did he come from the anti nintendo fanboy filth using his IM IN THE INDUSTRY status to try hate on the company that rules the roost IDIOT MAN

    and wiiu gpu is above a hd4850 with ease and in a closed console thats 4 X 360 easy what a retard over 3x the edram if x360 and ultra efficent low latancy ram shut up you retard

  44. I don’t even know who this guy is nor do I care about his opinion nor do I think it matters to anyone for that matter.

  45. This kind of scandalous negativity towards Japan’s most deadly company shall not go unpunished. I am dispatching the Nintendo ninja squadron to take care of this insolent worm.

  46. So let me get this right……………Mario Galaxy, Zelda, Mario Kart and Metroid, some of the most successful game series in the history of video gaming are boring as hell and don’t stand up to a Call Of Duty game????? I mean, do i really need to point out this guy is a complete dick?? If u wanna be a hater, do it somewhere else and at least back yourself up with decent facts instead comparing every gamer out there to be a fucking mindless CoD drone who cant even wipe their own arses.

  47. The Wii U has a beefy GPU and tonnes of ram. The processor is not much . re powerful but when was the processor the bottleneck?

    1080p is considerably lower in resolution than a PC and a good monitor. This lower resolution is huge when it comes to processing power needed.

    Next gen consoles won’t have processors that are leaps above what we have. Instead they will be like the wii u. Adding more of what bottlenecked development in the first place.

    This isnt ten years ago when we easily tripled the last gen technology. Things slowed down due to cost. Not just in hardware but in software too. Triple a titles are expensive to make. Fewer and fewer game developers have that budget.

  48. if you guys think that the Wi U isnt powerful cause it play this generations games look at the 360s launch line up look at tony hawk american waste land and Gun and tell me those look just as good as gears of war or halo 4. the reason their are no big ultra next gen games for the Wii U is companys dont want to make a very expensive game that probably be two to three times what it cost for this past generation and only be available to one system its too much of a risk to have it only to one console.

  49. 1; You dont lift dan
    2;Cod is the most milked and boring game of all time and doesnt have faggots working for them
    3;Smg2 is in no way the same. if you played more than 1 hour you would know. you probaly got stuck on the first level because it had no sex education
    4;your mom doesnt lift either
    5; have you even played xenoblade chronicles
    6; Microsoft or sony or whoever you work for are ok. but if you like microsoft you are some of the most gay people on the planets

  50. I’m pretty angry with Nintendo right now, but Dan is talking rubbish Galaxy 2 was brilliant, and how can he make that complaint in a world with anything good gets recycled over and opver again with little changing (COD FIFA etc) while Galaxy 2 changed its entire content.

    But games are Nintendos problem, mainly because they are making nothing and delaying on an epic scale anything they actually are going to release.

  51. I never read the comments here due to all the retarded flamewars. I clicked to read the comments on this specific article knowing full well how it was nothing more than flamewar bait. Glad to see nothing’s changed. Also completely, utterly disgusted at the same time.

  52. Well, I’ve been busy lately and I come back to the site today and lo and behold, we have this. Same shit, different year. First off, he’s never played the Wii U, so why is he giving his extremely biased point of view on a console he’s never touched. Some people really are just pathetic. This article should’ve been to sentences long. “What are my thoughts on the Wii U as a developer? I’ve never touched one so I can’t speak on it.” Done.

    Leave luck to heaven.
