Let’s Talk About… Best 3D Mario (and is Mario Dead in Super Mario Odyssey?)


If you’re reading this, it means you’re visiting the Miketendo64 website and it is Let’s Talk About time!

 

But what is Let’s Talk About? Well it’s our feature series that continues to evolve and as part of its evolution, we’ve taken it public, so that instead of just me or Mike Scorpio and I doing all the work, discussing all things Nintendo related, now you too can join in and have your say. So in light of that and eager to strike up yet another instalment, as a follow-on to the release of Super Mario Odyssey and the end of our #MarioWeek, last month we took to Twitter to talk about Super Mario Odyssey and today, we’re sharing just how exactly that chat went down: Continue reading Let’s Talk About… Best 3D Mario (and is Mario Dead in Super Mario Odyssey?)

So in light of that and eager to strike up yet another instalment, last month we took to Twitter to talk about the Nintendo Switch’s (at the time) current line-up of games and asked the question, “Is it all too much, too soon?” And today, we’re sharing your answers:

But what is Let’s Talk About? Well it’s our feature series that continues to evolve and as part of its evolution, we’ve taken it public, so that instead of just me or Mike Scorpio and I doing all the work, discussing all things Nintendo related, now you too can join in and have your say.

@austinclan9999: “Super Mario 3D World. I reckon they could really expand on the multiplayer in a sequel…”

@darthcsad: “Do do do do do doot, doot!

@wraithgames: “Geno, Wart, Daisy, and Midbus.”

@austinclan9999: “BUZZY BEETLE!!! Let’s get him into 3D!!!”

@darthcsad: “Mouser.”

 

Since Mario has a mobile game, who thinks Luigi or Wario should be the next Mario characters to get one? Warioware on Mobile devices would be Fun!:

@austinclan9999: “Actually Warioware on mobile would work far better than it ever has on console IMHO.”

@miketendo64 (in response to @austinclan9999): “Touch controls, voice controls, tilt controls. It has plenty of promise. They could even make it a 1-2-Switch tie-in by having those sort of games but with Warioware. Aka 1-2-Warioware.”

@austinclan9999 (in response to @miketendo64): “The thing is that Nintendo wish to use mobile to attract people to their systems, and so I doubt they’d ever make it a complete experience.”

@timmi1812: “I think a simple Luigi’s Mansion mobile game would be nice, where you can defend ghosts on the go.”

@miketendo64 (in response to @timmi1812): “And Halloween would have been as good a time as any to release it, only it doesn’t seem it will be this year.”

@timmi1812 (in response to @miketendo64): “Yes, maybe next year. That would be really nice.”

@darthcsad: “WarioWare mobile would be sweet, A Luigi’s Mansion, top-down view type game would be neat.”

Once you get Hold of Super Mario Odyssey, what’s your plan of attack? Lock-in/long gaming session or get everyone round, get out the Big TV and play in Style? (No inviting Karen):

@austinclan9999: “(Karen will be VERY upset BTW…)”

@miketendo64 (in response to @austinclan9999): “I don’t doubt that she will be, but she didn’t invite us to her party and it’s not like anyone ever saw her again.”

@austinclan9999 (in response to @miketendo64): “Well first I’ll unwrap the cellophane… Seriously, I will just hang around the first world doing crazy stuff for the first day!”

@miketendo64 (in response to @austinclan9999): “Nah, I think I prefer the cellophane answer. Our EiC unwrapped Nights of Azure 2 with a sword. Video is taking forever to upload though, so you can see, but when it’s online.”

@Paul_Pope: “Big TV, recliner chair, kids in bed, all-night session, suffer the noise of small children the rest of the weekend!”

@miketendo64 (in response to @Paul_Pope): “You won’t let them delight in it also? That’s bad parenting, but very smart gaming!”

@Paul_Pope (in response to @miketendo64): “One just dribbles as he’s 4 months old & the other broke her arm last week so I could be a great parent & offer knowing neither can play.”

@darthcsad: “Marathons both solo and then letting my 5yr old son dig into it.”

 

Should the Switch get another big Mario title within the next 3 years, any preference as to what you would want it to be? A Super Mario Maker Port? A New Super Mario Bros? Paper Mario Switch, or just something else that is 2D?:

@Jome20: “Love a Paper Mario similar to the Thousand Year Door or Super Paper Mario (Wii). Super Mario Maker DX port makes a ton of sense too.”

@PatbenSte (in response to @Jome20): “How would you build levels Mario Maker? Touchscreen only? Nintendo never would do that… With buttons? Uaaah…”

@Jome20 (in response to @PatbenSte): “Switch has a touch screen functionality so the creation tool menu would prob just overlap the screen and go away when not being used.”

@austinclan9999: “Super Mario RPG 2. I will never rest until it comes to fruition!”

@WizardDojo: “Bowser. But also Geno, Fawful, Rosalina, DK, and the Mario Bros. themselves, of course.”

@PatbenSte “All of them!!!!!”

@Paul_Pope: “A Super Mario All-Stars style HD collection of classics, they must be able to squeeze so many past hits into a Switch cartridge!”

@timmi1812: “The Switch definitely needs a New Super Mario Bros. A new Paper Mario would be nice, too!”

@darthcsad: “Yes, 1.5-2 years hopefully. How about an HD Mario 64 update? To hold us off until an Odyssey sequel!”

Now I could do the typical thing I do when we reach this stage in the newer version of Let’s Talk About, but not today. Our followers have said enough, and because #MarioWeek is about us and not I (even though there is a I in Mario,) there is no need for me to have my say, so instead, we’re going to wrap this up so you can go back to playing, or watching others play Super Mario Odyssey!

 

This has been another of our revised instalments of Let’s Talk About. Thank you reading. Thank you for supporting the series and if you wish to join in with the conversation, you can do so below by leaving a comment.

Let’s Talk About… ARMS (And the Lack of amiibo)


If you’re reading this, it means you’re visiting the Miketendo64 website and it is Let’s Talk About time!

But what is Let’s Talk About? Well it’s our feature series that continues to evolve and as part of its evolution, we’ve taken it public, so that instead of just me or Mike Scorpio and I doing all the work, discussing all things Nintendo related, now you too can join in and have your say. So in light of that and eager to strike up yet another instalment, we took to Facebook and invited members of the groups Handheld Gaming Network and Nintendoholics to weigh in on the subject of ARMS and amiibo and this is the responses we got:

* * * * *

So Let’s Talk About ARMS. While amiibo themselves might not be a good fit for it, how do you feel about ARMS amiibo cards that act similar to baseball cards as they have the stats and that of a fighter on them?

Responses from Handheld Gaming Network:

Conner Amays: I don’t understand why “figures wouldn’t be a good fit”? Although the baseball card idea is neat, I don’t see why figures sound like a bad option.

Konner Bowen: Figures could be great. If they implemented certain non-game breaking power ups or additional weapons that weren’t overpowered or just cosmetic then people would love them.

DeAnne Williams: I like the figure idea more. I have hundreds of AC amiibo cards and I’m not going down that route again. Trying to trade and sell duplicates is a pain. It’s not as fun like card trading was as a kid when you could trade pokemon cards at school or with your friends. It is too time consuming and schedule conflicting doing that as an adult. Not to mention the cost of it all.

Rebekah Rose Jordan: If I were getting amiibos, it would be figure. Like DeAnne Williams, I have AC amiibo cards, and while they are neat and serve their purpose, I remember trying to trade duplicates and driving an hour out to east Jesus nowhere and no, I’m too old for that garbage.

Responses from Nintendoholics:

Trintin Chlok: I think that amiibo could be cool. And if each one came with a few detachable fists. So that way if you got them all you could mix and match. I’d get some.

Angelika Papasodora: I think the amiibo cards would be a great idea for Arms. I personally would like figurines better since I have started on an amiibo collection, but not everyone has the room for them. Collecting the amiibo cards are easier and efficient, and you could even put them in card sleeves and trade them. It would be cool if they did different art for the characters as well.

David Beaudoin: I would buy amiibo so hard. Also, they could easily utilize amiibo. Let you save your ARMS configuration to take with you to your friends’ house!

Anthony Reynolds: I really want amiibos. The cards can kick rocks. Bring me sweet sweet plastic. Also ARMS is an amazing fighting game. I think Splatoon has overshadowed it a bit. But people should really give it a chance. Great game. Online is fun. 2 player local play kicks ass. Characters are sweet. Definitely original.

Brian Irizarry: ARMS amiibo figures with detachable fists that can come in a blind bag would crush my wallet

(In response to Brian Irizarry:) Anthony Reynolds: Do not ever tell this to Nintendo. We’ll all go bankrupt.

* * * * *

Like I said, the discussions were short, but the responses were golden and since a whole lot has been said and I have yet to have the chance to have my say, I think it’s time I weighed in with my own comments.

I have never really been into the whole amiibo phase. Yes I do indeed own some, such as my still-in-the-box Rider Link and Guardian Breath of the Wild themed amiibo, but I’m not an amiibo collector and despite that, I was a bit disappointed amiibo wasn’t announced for ARMS. Granted it’s an entirely new thing and everyone could have hated the fighters so making amiibo could have turned into a huge loss for Nintendo as no one would want to buy figurines of characters they hate, but Nintendo could have least made amiibo cards of them.

They would be cheaper, could have been designed to be like baseball cards with fighter stats and possibly even their bio on one side, but it didn’t happen and it’s a shame. The amiibo could have been used to unlock additional ARMS, or even save your favourite loadout, so when you go round to a friends, when someone else, like your partner, has your Switch, at least by scanning in the amiibo card you can play as your favourite fighter, in your preferred colour, with your favourite ARMS, without having to go through the hassle of choosing everything.

But even if the amiibo cards of ARMS served no function at all, they’d still be worth getting as each one would be special and can easily be packaged up, like Nintendo did with the Animal Crossing cards. Sure they’re a hassle to collect that way, but what amiibo isn’t hard to get? Time and time again the ones we want sell out almost immediately, so why should it be any different with the cards? Also by going with card form, it would be a nice throwback to the time when Nintendo did cards of the Smash fighters when the original 64 game came out. (Those cards were awesome.)

Yes actual figurines of ARMS fighters would be better, especially of the ARMS were all interchangeable, but were that the case, not every fighter might get an amiibo. In fact only 5 might get that privilege, which wouldn’t feel right. This would have to be one of those times where it is all or nothing, as in all fighters get an amiibo figurine or none of them do and while it would be a little too costly and a bit of a financial risk, the risk is considerably less with amiibo cards, so I am disappointed it didn’t happen. But who knows? Maybe we’ll get lucky and when a sequel rolls out, so will a series of amiibo dedicated to it. (A boy can live in hope right?) Until such time though, ARMS not having amiibo is a wasted opportunity and nothing can possibly change that!

Let’s Talk About… Animal Crossing (The Smartphone Game the Fans Want!)


Year 3 of Miketendo64 is well and truly underway and in keeping with our desires of being more interactive with our readers and fellow users of Social Media sites, we have taken our Let’s Talk About feature series and made it public!

 

What does this mean? Well instead of Mike Scorpio and I doing the majority of the mouth/finger work, we’re letting you guys do it too! So with that thought in mind, we took to Facebook and had started a discussion in the Facebook group Handheld Gaming Network. Now the discussion may have been short, but the responses are golden and so I don’t delay it any further, this is how we got on with our first Facebook focused Let’s Talk About!

 

*          *          *          *          *

 

Jack Longman (EiC of Miketendo64): Hello everyone, my name is Jack Longman and something you may not know about me is that I run a Nintendo news site. That Nintendo news site is Miketendo64 and having just celebrated our 2 year anniversary, we want to spend the next year interacting with Nintendo gamers more, starting with doing discussions with all of you on social media.

One way we intend to do this is via Let’s Talk About. Before Let’s Talk About was a series feature on our site where Mike Scorpio and I do most of the discussing, but now we’re hoping to have you guys join in with us and what better way to have a discussion than on Facebook, so if you feel like have like joining in, it’s most appreciated, just know some of your responses will be shared to my website. You can however request whatever you say not to be shared.

So with this being a group with a sizable Animal Crossing fanbase and Nintendo giving us virtually nothing with regards to details on the mobile game, Let’s Talk About Animal Crossing (The Smartphone Game the Fans Want!)

With your expert Animal Crossing knowledge, how would you like to see the game work? Is there anything in particular you feel the mobile game needs and doesn’t need, but also what kind of model do you want to see Nintendo use for it? A system like the one Super Mario Has, or gacha like Fire Emblem Heroes?

Let the discussion begin!

Image result for animal crossing mobile

Cristiano Campos Araújo: I think something like the idea of Happy Home Designer, as it would be better for mobile since it seems like something you’d do more casually. I’m unsure though because I remember Nintendo said they wouldn’t port any games.

 

Jennifer Anderson: I loved Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, I just wish you could do the same with New Leaf. I think they should add new characters allow everyone to get the Sanrio character because it’s not very fair otherwise.

 

Liz Footit: I’m not sure what they’re planning for the app, I just hope it’s somehow able to work with or alongside the switch game. But honestly I wish that they would just not make an app and move on to the Switch version. It could be sooooo good. I’d like a bigger world, new terrain, more characters as well as mixed in with HHD.

 

Victoria Thorley: I agree. I would rather they just go straight to a Switch game. I can just see the mobile game ending up like Miitomo. Fun for a couple weeks and then I got bored of it.

 

Liz Footit: Yeah I was gonna say that too. I don’t know, it’s possible they’ll just make it like mini games, but who knows? I say Nintendo shouldn’t waste their time.

 

Jim Clarida: I wouldn’t mind if it were like the New Leaf island mini-games to like earn bells (or buy bells using cash), to purchase furniture to customize animal homes like in HHD. I loved that aspect of designing villager houses- sure it felt like I was getting repetitive, but if they limited the amount to like 100 instead of the 300+ it’d be a perfect mobile game for me. That said, I’ve got the same attitude as Liz and Victoria, I want a Switch version more- was just fantasizing about what it’d be like to take the GameCube version everywhere, so I’ll even take a VC version at this point!!

Like I said, a short discussion but we did get some great responses, and since the discussion is still ongoing Facebook, more responses such as the ones above could be posted and find themselves added to this article, but while everyone else has had their say, I have not. Now I’m not going to pretend for one second to be an expert on the Animal Crossing games as I have never played a single one and playing an Animal Crossing character one-time in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe does not count, but I do see one way Nintendo could make the mobile title work. (Really?) Yes really and that way is by making an Animal Crossing alternative to Farmville?

Image result for animal crossing mobile

Farmville and its sequel Farmville 2, are both social network farming simulation games that involves a wide range of farm management activities which includes planting, growing, harvesting crops and even raising livestock. As for Animal Crossing, well that’s a series of community simulation video games, which has a lot of the same mechanisms of Farmville, but the games are more about a village than just a simple farm, but by comparison, Farmville is a lot simpler. In fact it may be going bare bones, but it might even be in Nintendo’s best interests to make the mobile version of Animal Crossing fully farm focused. Farming sims are still immensely popular, but things like fishing, bug catching and fossil hunting can still be included, and as for the name, because of the farm factor, it could quite literally be something like Animal Crossing: Farming Frolics.

 

Plus by being pushed as a game of this calibre, it would then be another free-to-start title that features in-app purchases for the players who wish to get ahead and expand everything faster, but in no way offers them exclusive content such as unlocking alternate characters, as this could be something that a My Nintendo account is used for, as other characters could then be available as rewards, who are steadily released monthly following the game’s initial release.

Image result for animal crossing mobile

But like I said, I’m not an Animal Crossing expert, so I shared the above view with a friend of mine from the Facebook group and this is word for word, what she had to say in response:

 

Victoria Thorley: My thoughts are yes it could work in one sense, but Nintendo would have to make the game  focus on raising only crops and not include raising animals as that would get confusing, but then it would feel like a watered down Harvest Moon and honestly, I don’t think fans would not be happy with that.

We have been crying out for a proper title for ages. Happy Home Designer and the New Leaf Campground were good enough to tide us over, but the AC community is getting restless. I think for us to be happy with a mobile game, then it’s going to have to be something amazing to keep us happy until a new console game finally comes out.

Something like Happy Home Designer would work well on a mobile phone, or even a simulator game where you run shops where the animals are customers, may work, but I feel the game needs to have a lot of depth to it, to please us.

All of the AC games have a great deal of depth to them and we literally play it every day for years. We aren’t thrilled about a mobile instalment as it is, and if it feels watered down, it will flop badly, or it will be fun a few weeks and then no one will bother it ever again.

 Image result for animal crossing mobile

Victoria, you are indeed very passionate about Animal Crossing, but you are absolutely correct and because there is nothing more that needs saying, it is time to wrap this sucker wrap!
