I never even gave much, if any thought to a Pikmin game on the 3DS, so I'm a little taken back to find out that one was in the works all this time. But why fans are so butt hurt that Pikmin 3DS is a side scrolling platformer and not the traditional RTS games that the first three console versions have been truly mystifies me. The 3DS is a powerful machine but not powerful enough to manage a Pikmin game in the same manner as the console games. Besides, Pikmin 4 is already in development for the NX, so I don't see why Pikmin fans have their pitch forks raised.
|Game isn't even out and it already sucks. Why?|
Because it isn't like The Thousand Year Door. SMH.
Fans have been dissatisfied with the Paper Mario games for years now. Super Paper Mario didn't get the same reception the original Paper Mario or it's greatly improved sequel, The Thousand Year Door enjoyed, but most fans pretty much agree that Sticker Star is the Anti-Christ of the series. Shigeru Miyamoto had Intelligent Systems do away with the partner System of the previous games, drastically turning Sticker Star into something else entirely. So the Trailer for Color Splash, which revealed that the game is once again, not like The Thousand Year Door, has fans up in arms.
The trailer for Color Splash, honestly looks fun. But most fans are so caught up with "IT ISN'T LIKE THOUSAND YEAR DOOR, BOOOOOO!!!" Should every Paper Mario game be exactly like that game or close enough to it? For crying out loud, the game isn't even out yet, and it has already been labeled as trash because it isn't like everyone's favorite Paper Mario game.
As was the case with Federation Force, Color Splash as well as Pikmin 3DS have ridiculous petitions on change.org for the games to be scrapped in favor of proper games in the series. Just stop. Stop with these useless petitions and stop embarrassing yourselves. The petition didn't work for Federation Force and the game was not the disaster so many made it out to before they even played it. You don't want these games? Fine. Don't buy them. It's called voting with your wallet. But despising a game that hasn't even been released just because it isn't exactly what you want is just dumb.
