This game is epic because Mario, Sonic, Mega Man and Pacman will fight each other, for those who are too young doesn't understand why is a huge deal having him on the roaster


Now all we need is Bomberman to complete that triangle. What? Bonk, no no no, big headed cave children aren't big enough. Clearly Bomberman is the key. That's all Hudson need representing that side of the coin.

Oh still we can imagine a fight between Hori Taizo, Sayo-chan, Twinbee, and Goemon but...
(And the relevance outside Japan is a bit shot)


Agreed on Bomberman. Sweet mercy, I miss him.

No No No.

First of all it'd be a pentagon that's completed, because he only have 4 characters.

Second of all, we need Bubsy. Not your silly Bomberman or Bonk. Bubsy the Cat is where it's at.

Choo Choo!

Here comes the Hate Train!

Miyamoto should leave Nintendo and word for EA, that way we can keep all the terrible ideas in one place :U
Right?

Uhm.. It's a Nintendo > Sega > NEC/Hudson triangle. There is also also a Nintendo(Mario) > Capcom(Mega Man) > Hudson(Bomberman) Triangle too. Sega isn't part of that one because pre Gamecube Sega had no relevance on Nintendo. Bonk get out classed by Bomberman for Hudson representative. Pac-man is for the Donkey Kong > Pac-man > ??? triangle, the 3rd member is unknown there though. Hori Taizo & Sayo-chan are odd choices as Dig Dug & Kiki Kai Kai(Pocky & Rocky before Rocky) weren't as big. Also a Space Invader isn't exactly a fighter, and Sony seems to own Q*bert. Frogger Maybe...

Bubsy is an entirely separate triangle that goes Earthworm Jim > Bubsy > Aero the Acrobat. Seeing none of them had any relevance in Japan and all three are in the video game graveyard, the real one not the one Konami, Capcom and Square Enix are trying to dig for Megaman, Hudson & Taito properties, its clear they have little relevance to gaming today. I even like Bubsy it just that the little Bobcat has no actual long term relevance to Nintendo or gaming as a whole(his best is the Superman 64 of Playstation).

There was this game called Paper Mario Sticker Star that was going to be awesome until Miyamoto came along and was like "What's this? Characters? Story? Humor? FUN!?! GET RID OF IT! I WANT NSMB THE RPG!" and then forced them to remove everything good about the series and make the blandest game possible.
You must've misread. He didn't want to remove Pac-Man, he wanted to add him.


I know, that's what makes it so awful.

Pac-Man is probably the most uninspired and overrated character ever.


You have got to be kidding. Pac-MAn is anything but overrated dude.

He's probably the first identifiable character in video gaming, what do you expect? They needed a basic yet recognizable shape on him because, back then, they didn't exactly have a lot of screen resolution to work with. Pixels were measured in singular amounts. They saw a pizza with one slice missing and the rest was history.
