AMN Points at Me
DS Advanced (part of the Advanced Media Network) has a review up of New Super Mario Bros. In it, Matt Green- also the webmaster for PressTheButtons– has a section on the second page called “Game Boy Advance Need Not Apply”, a 3 paragraph allusion to my “‘New’ Super Mario Bros?” article.
I find it funny how people keep trying to justify this game’s intentions when its sole objective was fan service. The point isn’t whether it could or couldn’t run on a GBA, it’s that Nintendo only made it to capitalize on the current DS rage with a nostalgic throwback. Reviewers are also saying it, it’s not “new”.
Listen, i’m not trying to shine a spotlight on myself. I’ve let the NSMB thing go; i really don’t give a shit. (I never expected it to get the publicity it did in the first place.) But, apparently, the faithful haven’t stopped coming at me and i thought it was worth pointing out. I just say this because i’ve been accused of having an ego over it. Seriously though, what other “outspoken people” could Matt be referring to?
However you may think, I don’t care about internet recognition. Gimme a fuckin break, please. This is blogging, not film.
