Random Time! - Capcom's Yoshinori Ono talks about his favorite Pokemon

A portion of a GameSpot interview with Street Fighter producer, Yoshinori Ono...

GS: Did you pick Bulbasaur, Squirtle or Charmander as your starting Pokemon?

YO: It wasn’t part of the original three but I chose Chikorita, which is grass type.

GS: What is your favourite Pokemon?

YO: Hmmm. Mew. I like Mew. That Pokemon is legit now, but back in the day it was something you got by doing tricks like pulling the cartridge out or cable out.

Nintendo takes 6th place in Metacritic's publisher rankings for 2015

“It wasn’t a good year for the Nintendo brand. A year after finishing first in our rankings, Nintendo saw its average Metascore decline by nearly five points and its percentage of games receiving positive reviews fall from 56% to just 41%. The company once again released more unique titles than any other publisher, but too few of them connected with critics. The duds seemed to be spread fairly evenly among Nintendo’s two platforms, with its Wii U titles averaging 71.3 and its 3DS games averaging 71.9.”

RUMOR - Motion controls a big focus for StarFox Zero, causing problems

We know that StarFox Zero uses motion controls for a lot of areas, but a recent rumor states that both Nintendo and Platinum really doubled down on the use of motion controls in the game. This has lead to some really tough development issues that are being worked through. Apparently, some of those control issues are still plaguing the game right now, even as the game is being sent off for certification.
