Nintendo sticks F-Zero cars in Mario Kart while steadfastly refusing to develop a new F-Zero game.

Sometimes I hate them so much.

As much internet buzz it gets and mindshare, F-zero doesn't sell. Gotta keep the lights on at Nintendo somehow.

"Dry," Bowser? Does this mean we should attribute Bowser's princess-knapping to his struggles with alcoholism?

I thought so too, but it seems to be a Dry Bones version of Bowser.

Love it. I've kinda wondered why the Mario Party series didn't expand to include Nintendo IP in general...and have minigames based on their actual games, like a minigame that was basically a Mario Kart track, or a Smash Bros fight, or multiplayer platforming levels, or various Mario Sports battles. They could also use the minigames to highlight their more obscure titles.

Thought the racing levels of Mario Galaxy could have simply been MK tracks for example.

Love the work!

Though I am against the attempts at rebranding SF GB as West. It's GB. I'd accept 1 or maybe Prime though.

This has to be a Tag fighting game right? It would be crazy not to be, but who knows.

Cheers, Patrick! Keeping me amused for some time as ever.

That Brock Lesnar tweet is golden.

Now I'm left wondering if Patrick gets the real joke of that tweet, because holy shit that tweet is the best.

Barnwell does bring the thunder at times. I've grown to really enjoy his NFL work though his music snobbery (probably well earned) can be a bit much.

Bring Dan on Alt+F1 for some 3D action.

But...what about Drake, John T.?

@sub_o: So all we need is a stealth based survival horror JRPG based on licensed anime characters eating bone in meat? That actually sounds kind of amazing.

So, Mario isn't even human? Craziness!

I think he might still be considered human. He is still of the Homo genus.

If EA was putting out quality titles that I wanted to play then this offer would be enticing. But most of the games they release are PC only and/or pretty bad.

The biggest scare for me is that I feel like this would further encourage EA to a free-to-play/pay-to win model because even if the games are included in subscription they are going to encourage the extra revenue. Lets not forget that this is EA we are talking about.

Given I've so rarely seen a sale on any major DLC for the EA games I'm interested in, while seeing the games themselves happily get discounted on Steam, I definitely see this being the trojan horse to that kind of model. Cheaper (insofar as you are already subscribing) games up front, with stuff locked away perpetually at full price.

Obviously Sony cares about the consumer as far as they can squeeze proprietary stuff into things for them to buy. I don't take any of their claims of concern for consumers seriously. But I don't see EA's plan as particularly interesting now with such nebulous terms and limited selection nor later if it it gets more robust and a success. It will only usher in other major publishers doing the same, likely locking things behind that paywall to ensure subscriptions. Maybe every publisher will get their WoW money by way of millions of subscribers. Oh well.
