Nintendo fanboyism now in ludicrous speed


9:54 PM on 11.08.2006



spaceballs3qo.jpg You gotta love Nintendo fans. No matter what obstacles are in their way, they will overcome them. Come hell or highwater, nothing will ever get them down. Case in point: Despite Gears of War getting all kinds of praise from gamers and gaming journos alike, the Nintendo fanboys at Infendo and 4cr are unphased in their Wii devotion. Have a look at this from Infendo, who do say it is a "great game," but yet bash it in the same piece:
It’s because [Gears of War] is the same thing you were playing last year, with a new coat of paint. Oh, and a $10 next gen tax. And yet the reviewers are gushing over it. Honestly, if this is perfection, then count me out of the next gen race. Sure, you can slap on motion sensing to the 360 and the PS3 very easily, but their price points and development costs make that an unlikely success in the long run. Enter the Wii again. In a nutshell, this is what companies like MS and Sony think the next gen should be. Pretty graphics, great sound, and solid gameplay that we've all seen before over the last 10 years. The next five years will be about playing it safe and brand new televisions and re-buying the DVDs you already have with Blu-Ray/HD DVD ones. The next gen is an 8 out of 10. Unfortunately, playing it safe means you never move forward, and that doesn't help anybody. Enter Wii.
My God Ninty fans, can't you just accept that Microsoft and even Sony make good games too? Just because it doesn't say Nintendo or Mario or Zelda on the cover, doesn't mean it's tired and bloated. Why can't you just love all things equally? Most of us do and we're having a grand old time.

This Dreadnought video shows you how to actually play Dreadnought

As I learned at PAX Prime, actually knowing how to play Dreadnought is half the battle. It's an enamoring idea to rush in with the quickest ship and fire until either you or your target is dead. If that's your approach,...more
