    Right, that makes sense.

    In general I agree with you, but that hasn't always been the case for Mario. SMB2j isn't exactly friendly to newer players and games like Mario 64 or Sunshine had steeper learning curves than more...

    It was in another Kalinske interview: https://lukezapart.com/tom-kalinske-interview



    I'd forgotten why Kalinske said it was moved, so maybe it wouldn't have worked in any event. But if...

    I think you are right, with all those people working on games the management must have thought a new Sonic was just around the corner. Otherwise it seems insane to launch a new system with Bug! and...

    It's funny you say that because I had the same reaction when I saw Bug!. You get to the bonus area where you race against Sonic and it's like, why didn't you just make a Sonic game in the first...

    I guess we can agree to disagree, because I don't see it as "getting away with" anything. I thought the whole point of selling is to make as much money as possible. If you choose to set a price...

    I don't understand this logic. Go on eBay almost everything is being sold at auction... why should videogames be the one item that has to be sold at fixed cost? Why shouldn't the seller try to make...

    You are patient as hell. I would have given up explaining this about five pages ago.

    Thanks Gryson, would rep again but it seems I've already repped you too much lately :)

    I'll take Naka at his word but I thought it was even more lines than that, with Sega CD, the PC ports, the...

    Sure, Breath of the Wild was released on both platforms and some people did buy it for Wii U, myself included... but the key thing here is that it was still one of the best games Nintendo had made in...

    I give Sega all the credit in the world for being willing to try something new but to me it still felt more like a tech demo than a polished fighting game. I just didn't think 3D was there yet. A few...

    I suppose that's one way to describe Breath of the Wild :rofl:
    Any way you look at it the game was an enormous success. Reviews were nearly unanimous in praising the gameplay and it sold very well....

    Oh that's right. You guys had Wipeout at launch. That would have impressed me more than any launch title we had in North America. I definitely wasn't getting bored of 16-bit though. I'll still take a...

    The Saturn had one of the worst launches of all time. That doesn't always doom a console but it certainly doesn't help. I agree the PS1 launch titles were not very impressive though. Battle Arena...

    Really? I had the opposite reaction, I like the art style. Makes me think of a storybook come to life, or a puppet show. I can see where people are going to love it or hate it though.

    Thank you, had no idea that existed. Makes it look like a brand new game.

    I thought Resurrection was pretty good. Gorgeous art style, solid level design, a few frustrating sections but it wouldn't be a GnG game without those :)

    I didn't buy a Saturn at launch. For me it was a combination of factors:

    -16-bit still looked pretty good to me. I was having plenty of fun with my Genesis, SNES and Neo Geo. The next gen systems...

    I think the bigger advantage for Sony was that they had some of the best hardware engineers in the world, plus a ton of experience in designing consumer electronics. If we were talking about...

    OK I get what you mean. And wow, that is indeed one hostile interviewer! It's not even interesting to read at that point because nearly every question is about a competitor.
  21. I don't know the total number sold during that...

    I don't know the total number sold during that time. What I'm referring to is that if you look back at any of the PlayStation launches, the consoles always sold out within days, or sometimes even...
  22. The PlayStation completely sold out everywhere it...

    The PlayStation completely sold out everywhere it launched - Japan, UK, US, etc. All of its successors sold out at launch too. I always figured Sony planned for that by holding back some units early...
  23. Yes I agree on that. It was a lose-lose...

    Yes I agree on that. It was a lose-lose situation. But seeing the Saturn launch like that just made Sega look desperate.
  24. You're good, like I said you followed this way...

    You're good, like I said you followed this way more closely than I did. I spent too much money on gaming back then too but that was more due to having a Neo Geo :rofl:

    I just don't think it's a...

    It was Paul Rioux who talked up both the Neptune (as a combined Genesis/32X) and mythical 32X->Saturn adapter before either system had even launched. When neither of these things happened and the 32X...
