Comment on The Nintendojo Interview: GalaxyTrail’s Stephen DiDuro by penduin http://www.nintendojo.com/features/interviews/the-nintendojo-interview-galaxytrails-stephen-diduro#comment-28181 penduin Mon, 30 Mar 2015 20:11:54 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=138531#comment-28181 Great interview! This game looks like a blast, and I look forward to playing it on Wii U. It's very exciting that indie studios can pick up where traditional publishers left off and revive some of these great formulas and mechanics. When Sega comes out and says, "there's no single-player future for Sonic", I just scratch my head. I understand them wanting to try new things, but there's still so much more mileage to be enjoyed in these old gameplay styles. Great interview!

I mean, heck, we waited, what, five years for Smash 4? And look how that turned out.

We wait, we wait and we wait and we forget until one day it happens and we are taken mind blown again and again. Patience and understanding is what helps us get through. Also a sparing in our wallet sure helps. I have been with Nintendo since NES and the delay of Zelda has become a tradition among the loyal Nintendo followers.

I really like AC, but each game is a bit hit-and-miss. None of them stand up years later as unique, polished treasures the way Zelda games do. I'm glad both approaches exist; I don't think every game should get delayed until it's perfect, but those insane standards at that end of the spectrum is part of why we're such big Nintendo fans.

I have no doubts it's going to be great game whenever it is released. I am not surprised but also a little bummed about it. I have no doubts it’s going to be great game whenever it is released.

I think it's great that Nintendo has personalities like Reggie. Watching them run away from a 3D Bowser does make you sometimes forget how smart and talented they actually are though! Anyway, here's to many more years of kickin' ass and takin' names! Happy Birthday to you for the 25th then!

Luckily, the system still has a fantastic lineup this year. I'm wondering if Star Fox gets pushed as the year's big holiday release now, or if something else will take that spot.
