Comment on Reminder: Splatoon Global Testfire Tomorrow by Kevin Knezevic http://www.nintendojo.com/news/reminder-splatoon-global-testfire-tomorrow#comment-29221 Kevin Knezevic Mon, 25 May 2015 15:30:42 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=141559#comment-29221 Yeah, connection issues were rampant on Saturday. I wasn't able to connect to a game until Nintendo extended the Testfire. It worked well after that, but I hope the initial hour of Saturday's Testfire isn't indicative of what launch day will be like. Yeah, connection issues were rampant on Saturday.

Comment on Is Yooka-Laylee Priming Collect-a-thons for a Comeback? by geoffrey http://www.nintendojo.com/features/editorials/is-yooka-laylee-priming-collect-a-thons-for-a-comeback#comment-29184 geoffrey Fri, 22 May 2015 22:28:28 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=141282#comment-29184 I'm just desperately hoping they avoid the mistakes of Banjo-Tooie; the levels in that game were just simply too large for what was in them. Getting from A to B to get a Jiggy took way too long. I'm hoping things land somewhere between BK and BT. Some of BK's levels were a little on the small side (be quiet Click Clock Wood, of course I don't mean you), but so many of BT's were just way too sprawling.

Comment on Send in the Clones by Toadlord http://www.nintendojo.com/features/editorials/send-in-the-clones#comment-29162 Toadlord Fri, 22 May 2015 00:51:55 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=141404#comment-29162 This is a really well-written article. I think that we very likely will see this new generation of mascots replace the old. Simply put, the reason these new titles are generating so much buzz is because the gameplay types that the old mascots represented are not being made anymore. At least not at a satisfying rate. Honestly, 3D platformers or 2D side-scrollers probably are not the best way to show off a system's powerful capabilities, so maybe that's partly to blame for the drought by AAA developers. But hopefully the clear interest in these Kickstarter projects proves that there is still a market for these game types. This is a really well-written article.

I wonder if we'll get anything of note in the weeks between May and E3, or if they'll just put out a couple forgotten NES games before announcing a new wave of DS, GBA, or N64 titles.
