      1. THIS IS WHY NINTENDO IS AND ALWAYS BE FOR CASUALS. EVEN IF THE GAME IS RUNNING ON 20FPS THEY ALWAYS GON BE HAPPY. THATS WHY THEY REFUSE TO BRING A REAL CONSOLE.

      2. What are you even talking about… Their game is 60fps, Nintendo games are extremely polished.
        You’re talking like a child, showing his ignorance to the world is not the way to go…
        Nintendo provides new and unique ways of playing with each of their consoles when Sony/Microsoft sell their consoles by saying they are very powerful systems when the PC is a miles ahead.
        Coming on a Nintendo fansite to troll shows you obviously have some troubles dealing with the fact that Nintendo have amazing exclusives when Sony/Microsoft can barely offer a couple good exclusives a year to their players.

      4. They’ve opted against 1080p so that the game runs at a silky smooth 60fps. Nintendo make professional games, not sloppy like most developers settle for.

      2. agreed Sonic’s sctick is speed but whats wrong with a little diversifying? I mean I don’t like sonic because I can never go at my own pace always racing against a timer… no thank you, I prefer a game in which you enjoy the story and the artwork but Sonic just makes it too pressurising

      3. I never got into the Sonic franchise, but many Mario games have timers too and you kinda have to hurry – like this one. It still won’t stop me from getting it, it looks too awesome. :)

      4. of course many Mario Games have timers, but that’s just to make sure no one exploits scoring high points in unlimited time, BUT ALL the Sonic games are timed, I can name over 10 Mario games that don’t use timers, and let you pace yourself heres a little few

        Super Mario Galaxy

        But we’re talking about 3D World here, that’s why I mentioned it. I hate being rushed in games, I guess Mario is not that bad in that regard – Sonic does look more intense.

      6. Then again, I just recommended Rayman Legends, which has some really rushed levels. I’m not very consistent, I guess. *g*

      7. I liked Sonic Lost World. The problem wasn’t that it wasn’t “speedy” enough. It was that the controls we’re a little questionable and the game had too many cheap deaths. Plus they made collecting the gold rings meaningless.

        I believe if the Sonic team sticks towards the direction of Lost World, and refine the “less”-refined aspects of the game, create a better story, but keep the visuals then the next Sonic game will be REALLY good.

      8. Once again, your troll is bad. Ignorance is killing it.
        Sega said Nintendo players clearly were the main public of Sonic.
        Others consoles players just don’t care about the video game franchises they’ve learnt to play with, as long as they have their tons of generic games that can be played with a way better quality and maniability on PC.

    3. also my definition of a hardcore game is how hard it is or how comples it can be. just because a game is so called more mature like cod (lame same old bullshit, most casual game out there) doesnt mean its hardcore. that word is stupid too but thats how i have to explain games now, either casual shit or more hardcore. normal too.

  4. Well, a Nintendo magazine gave that quote….soooooo yeah. I have to admit that I really didn’t like the quote either because it’s a very unnecessary and inaccurate shot at the other consoles. Mario 3D World looks good, but I’ve seen older games that looked better. (Final Fantasy XIII-2 makes this look like the ET video game)

    Like

  5. The thing is, Super Mario 3D World actually does look absolutely stunning. It’s akin to how Super Mario Galaxy looks compared to similar titles around that same time period. Even now, I’d say Super Mario Galaxy’s graphics (and SMG2, for that matter) still look excellent, and as we know, the Wii’s an SD console.

    Yes, some games do look better than 3D World in the eyes of other people, but so far, 3D World is easily one of the best looking games I’ve seen this year. I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.
