Within one year we are going to see three mario releases on the Wii U. That is a level of milking that only guitar hero has received. Why is nintendo getting a free pass for this when activision gets crucified for releasing cod every year?

Wait... You're telling me consoles have games that are different from one another? Huh, I never knew. They're all just so shitty I could never tell.
#3 Posted by madsnakehhh (13915 posts) -

Well, Mario sells and Nintendo is desperate for sales...however, as much as Mario is being "milked" the quality of his games are still pretty good...specially 3D Worlds since is looking like one of the best games this year, so that's why i don't mind having that many Mario games, unlike Guitar Hero where they just put new songs and try to sell the game as "new" without offering any significant change.

If you seriously can't see the fallacy of your argument already, it's hardly worth explaining to you.

It's Mario Kart 8.

The useless number/subtitle on the end is the biggest change in this entry. In the end, you're still racing around a bunch of boring, uninspired tracks a degenerate console gaming who couldn't play a real racing game because you don't own a PC.

The original Mario Kart is still the best one. Hell that goes for all Mario Spinoffs.

Of course you are. A troll tries to incite argument based on asinine posts. Which is what you are doing. Fact of the matter is that NSWBWU was a good, well received game that had downloadable content released in July. The downloadable content was so extensive that Nintendo provided a courtesy to gamers who hadn't purchased original game and offered it at retail for a very affordable price (especially given that they hadnt spent the original 60 on NSMBWU). Then you go on to act as if a.) the game and dlc was at all unsuccessful critically and b.) As if NSMBWU and Mario 3D World are in way shape and form similar apart from the inclusion of a titular character. One is a 3D platformer and one is 2D, drastically different gameplay elements and ACTUALLY released more than a year apart (contrary to your original post) So....yes, you are a troll.

Your point isn't really valid because I could include 3Dland to compare it to the U version, I just didn't bother to. Wow it's only 4 days off from being a year.. big whoop.

#29 Posted by NeonNinja (17318 posts) -

Mario is a character used in a ridiculous amount of games.  That doesn't mean the games are similar.  Nintendo uses the character to sell the games they want to design.  The last 3D platformer was Galaxy 2 back in 2010.  We just got a new RPG and a new 2D game.  There'll be a Kart game and eventually party and sports.  But using a character to sell different games is different from releasing the same game again and again.

Kirby's Epic Yarn comes to mind as an example.  Brand new game idea and Nintendo attached one of their characters to it.  You won't see other publishers pull that off with their major brands.  But Nintendo does it with Mario and a few others from time to time.

I was really only talking about the platformers, if I included all the mario themed games it probably wouldn't be pretty.

I have a very hard time believing you own a Wii U or a 3DS, because your idiotic hatred for a game company prevents you from enjoying good games... that's another strong difference between you and I.

Super Luigi was released as an expansion/DLC.

Super Mario 3D Land is completely different in design from New Super Mario Bros.  It's not Guitar Hero level milking if they aren't the same thing.

Those are all platformers, but are different from each others. It would probably take them another 2-3 years for the next 2D mario, and another few years for the next 3D mario.

Really? I don't recall crticizing the games, except maybe in the visuals department. SMT4 was a real downgrade from 3.

Only it's not. I don't remember Nocturne being in 3D. Looking at images on the internet isn't the same as seeing them face to face on a game screen.

No you didn't. And he's got a point. Nintendo aren't even spamming the character now, it's the character and the genre.

Trolls are going to stick together I guess.

If you take a look back, every single one of us shattered his feeble arguments. You guys should really try harder though.

It's like saying that Metroid Prime and Halo are them same genre...completely asinine.
