This is Colin Moriarty of Kinda Funny Games. He grew up as big of a Nintendo fanboy as they come. He openly admits he would drink Miyamoto's bath water at one point of his life. But Colin grew up, and Nintendo didn't. He was hoping Nintendo would make a console that he would want for the first time in 15 years. The rumors surrounding the console had him more hyped than he had been since the Gamecube was launched. He hoped Nintendo was finally going to make a console that would push him back into being a happy Nintendo console owner, but worried that Nintendo was Nintendo, and would fuck it all up.

Unfortunately Colin was right.

Isn't it funny that the people who bash the system the most seem to have that exact same story down to a T.

As soon as I hear someone say that story, I immediately ignore them. They don't love Nintendo. They love other games. Nintendo games have improved each time a new one comes out. Has Zelda, or Mario taken a hit in quality at all? Name other big IP's of theirs and ask the same thing. No they have not. Those "sob" stories about Nintendo not growing up with them is bullshit. They just don't like those games anymore.

So what is so wrong with the Switch reveal that we didn't expect. Ignoring any hardware stuff. Before this conference we KNEW it was going to be a handheld/home console. Nothing changed. In conference we got a new Mario that looks amazing, no one can deny that. We have a Zelda being released that looks amaizng, again no one can deny. We have a sequal to one of the highest acclaimed RPG's. It is getting a ultimate edition of the best Mario Kart game to date. It is gettting a sequal to a highly praised new IP(Splatoon).

Basically, it comes down to it's missing 3rd parties. Which, is NOT NINTENDO. Nintendo is Nintendo games. That is it.

I couldnt imagine the NES and SNES without the shit ton of amazing third party games. The GC had a decent amount and the Wii got some really good ones. For many of us Nintendo alone cant support their console enough for it to be more than a console you play a few times a year. Im really excited for Zelda and the next one Im really excited for is Mario. If you absolutely love pretty much every game Nintendo makes, then you are going to be much more excited for their consoles. Maybe us older gamers dont matter much, but we are not quitting gaming. We just have to find it elsewhere.

Colin always comes off as self-important. When he does a podcast with Greg and Tim, more often than not, he looks like a pretentious dick who listens to what the others are saying with an air of "I know better than them" in his face. It's annoying.

I'm not saying he doesn't make good points at times. Just that the guy likes his own crap way more than he should.

Kinda defeats any credibility he has though.

what I don't like about colin is that he's not too informative, he says stuff even if he's wrong. I saw the video and I see a big rant, "same old Colin" that's what I saw. He's video, just like a lot of people, screams "this console is doomed because of one presentation" same old "the playstation vita is set to succeed" colin. Same old colin, ironic.

By your same logic should people be posting pictures of your ass every time you speak confidently about a Nintendo product?

I doubt that would be as embarrassing as it is to be Colin.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

He's like one of those people who acts repulsive to everyone and everything, probably because his parents never loved him.



Switch is making obvious the epic amount of simpletons that form gaming comunity

This is the guy that still swears Vita will outsell 3DS right?

 

Why should I watch a video of a guy who wrote this gem

http://www.ign.com/articles/2011/10/22/the-playstation-vita-is-set-to-succeed

Polygon levels of wrong.

Lmao! This guy is always trying to look like some kind of intellectual when is the biggest simpleton you can find out there "It has huge power=success, It has low power= failure" what a freaking genious, the best part is the "Nintendo is the least of Sony's concerns these days" acting like Vita not only gonna sell well, not only more than 3ds but WAY more than 3ds, lmao again.

Is funny how now that Switch is gonna be everything that Vita wasn't and more, NOW he feels pesimistic about it. Truly genious.

Moderated for this and other posts today.



You shouldn't just try and remove his credibility when you cant come up with an argument for why he is wrong.

The thing is that I'm not an experienced gaming journalist with more than a decade of experience who used to work at the biggest gaming editorial. So when you're biased as fuck and a journalist... that looks bad... and that's why now he's a youtuber and their channel is a joke compared to other youtubers. I like Greg tho.

Ohh right, because before the Vita was released, it was easy to gauge how difficult it was to port games to the Vita, and know how little Sony was actually going to support that platform. He was supposed to know how a lot of Sony's plans for the platform were going to fall through. Of course. What an idiot. The article is about the Vita's potential, and it had a lot before it was release. The potential was just wasted. What an asshole.
