“I think part of the fun of Mario is how you play and experience a series of courses, with boss battles, too, all of which get progressively harder,” said Tezuka. “Mario developers build up the whole world, making sure the different courses all fit well together. I don’t think the overall fun you can have with an entire Mario game is the same as playing a single course made in Mario Maker, and of course future Mario games will include lots of new features… so I don’t think the two will ever be in competition.”

I think he's right. Mainline Mario games and Mario Maker aim for different audiences.

I agree, but not for that reason


...People just like Mario games. I don't think this would cut off interest on a new main Mario game

Also from the looks of it so far is that the editor is pretty limited. Though this could change in time.

of course your limited stage editor isn't going to make people stop buying your Mario games Nintendo! your fanbase that actually bothered to buy a Wii U will buy ANYTHING you release!

I am not buying it. Nor am I getting anything Starfox, Kirby, Yoshi, or Pikmin related. Personally debating Zelda U though I may get it due to the slight interest Windwaker has given me which I got for free when I got MK8.

Either way no one is going to blindly buy a game just because it was made by Nintendo themselves. If they do... I feel sorry for them

If someone will blindly not buy something I don't see why you find it hard to believe someone will blindly buy something, or that it makes them worse than you are.

PASS;
1) Looks like a reskin of Mario Paint and Mario put together.
2) Can't do any "Kaizo/VIP and Wall Mix" SMW customization.
3) Can't build your own maps.
I'm biased, because of ROM Mods that did a better job.

I bought Eternal Darkness and Giest because it had "Nintendo" on it, was not disappointed. Also bought Samurai Jack because it had "SEGA" on it. was also not disappointed. I bought Pac-Man World 2 because it had Pac-Man on it. Amazing. Even bought Spongebob The Movie Game, Lights Camera Pants and Battle For Bikini Bottom because it had "Spongebob" and those didn't disappoint me at all.

However, I'm not like that for any game. Just some rare exceptions. As long as it's based off something I like, the gameplay sounds fun and it's made by someone I like, I'll buy it.


Unless you're talking about people that are just "If it has X name on it, I'll buy it instantly", then ignore the above of my post.

Even though I like the Wii U, I do not consider it a Nintendo system.

Mario Maker is basically a "virtual toy" kind of software, like people used to describe The Sims,, Pushmo World's Studio mode, Little Big Planet and Dungeon Keeper to a lesser extent, and some describe Minecraft that way too.

It appeals to a certain audience of people who like a virtual toolset and assets to play around with. Nothing wrong with that.

Here's my top 4 responses:

#4 Still not as bad as Microsoft, they managed to get their hardcore fanbase to buy a mandatory Kinect...ouch!

#3 I guess that shows how great a developer Nintendo is?

#2 someone is up late on Mom's computer

#1 I guess that's still better then Sony, their fanbase will buy the same game twice in one year!
