Dr. Noh Says Relax



Entering a new world

This interview on Wired has caused quite a stir over the internet. Misleading headlines will tell you that Shigeru Miyamoto is retiring. If you actually read the article, which by the way is not actually the full interview, you’ll realize that what Shigeru Miyamoto wants to do is create art. Yes, he plans to continue developing video games, but he doesn’t want to have to spend five years at a time with massive development teams to make one. When you consider that a game like Braid (2008) was only created by two people, just imagine what Miyamoto could create on his own, or with a small team. I for one, can’t wait to see what he comes up with. If Pikmin is an example of what’s in his mind, then I imagine that players are in for a treat.

    I wish he would retire. Isn’t he behind the Wii-U?

    I think he’s past his prime.

      I think we have to see how the Wii U plays out before we know that for certain.

      • Brendan Corcoran

        Agreed, but my uninformed gut opinion (and it is just that) is that the Wii-U is two years too late and two years too early.

        Microsoft and Sony have so ingrained themselves into the online-gaming market for consoles that I have a really hard time believing it’s gonna be like 1996 (N64) all over again with everyone rushing out to get the latest Nintendo console. And when I say “everyone” I mean real gamers too… you know, the ones that fire up the same games every day and play them to death. I haven’t met a single person who plays the wii on anything one would call a consistent basis.

        I want so badly for Nintendo to put out a competitive console — in the sense that game developers are given pause when choosing which platform to develop for. It will make games of the future just that much better.
