Nintendo may be shifting focus toward hardcore fans once again; Miyamoto says they no longer have to make products relevant to general players

Over the years, Nintendo has built a massive empire by creating some of the most memorable franchises ever to exist in video game history. From the original Nintendo Entertainment System, all the way up to the Nintendo Gamecube, fans swore their allegiance to the company console after console due to the complexity, depth, and overall amazing quality found in many of their titles.

However, once the Nintendo DS and Wii dropped, during the 2004-2006 time frame, the target market shifted from hardcore NES-heads to the more casual, everyday gamer. Since then, the legendary organization has kept with this business model, but it looks like things may be starting to revert back to the good ol' days.

In an interview posted in this week's edition of Edge Magazine, Shigeru Miyamoto -- the mind behind Super Mario, the Legend of Zelda, and much more -- made reference to a possible change in approach for Nintendo going forward. Addressing casual players quite candidly, the game designer feels it's time for them to step up and delve a bit deeper into their video games.

"[These are] the sort of people who, for example, might want to watch a movie. They might want to go to Disneyland," Miyamoto said. "Their attitude is, 'okay, I am the customer. You are supposed to entertain me.' It's kind of a passive attitude they're taking, and to me it's kind of a pathetic thing. They do not know how interesting it is if you move one step further and try to challenge yourself [with more advanced games]."

'Tier placing ain't nothing but a number, baby' - Amazing grand finals set between Julio's Yun and Hoodaman's E. Honda at Churning the Butter #2

It's fairly agreed upon that in Ultra Street Fighter 4, if Yun isn't the best character, he is at least among the very best. In a similar sense, many have said that E. Honda has fallen to the very bottom of the tiers, and isn't really viable to use anymore.

Despite this, and dabbling in Decapre for a while, pH|Hoodaman has decided to stick with his guns and bring the classic sumo wrestler into the spotlight once more against MMG|Julio, one of the USA's top Yun players. This match occured as the Grand Finals of Churning the Butter #2, a newly-established NorCal weekly tournament, with pH|Hoodaman coming from the Loser's Bracket.

Armada: 'Peach's entire plan against Marth is to get a turnip,' this in-depth SSBM analysis will teach you how to defeat the top tier

Over on Melee It On Me, one of the best Super Smash Bros. Melee players of all time, EMP|Armada, recently posted an in-depth analysis of the Peach vs. Marth match-up. The write up covers a ton of bases including neutral game, edge guarding, offense, and much more.

Armada starts out by divulging the key needed to win this match: Peach's turnip. He emphasizes, "the main goal for Peach in this match-up is to have a turnip."

He explains that Marth players should do everything in their power to stop her from pulling the vegetable from the ground, because when Peach is holding a turnip, throwing it at the opponent from the ground gives her numerous options that even the playing field a bit (which he elaborates on in the write up).

According to the exceptional Peach player, the neutral game in this particular match-up is more important than most other bouts in Melee. The simple act of not carrying a turnip can make things much trickier in this fight, but don't fret, as Armada covers what to do in these situations as well!

Dash forward passes over Dee Jay for nasty mix up, lethal fake cross up, and more; V-Ryu shows the power of Makoto's EX Fukiage resets in USF4

Earlier today we stumbled upon a new video from Makoto extraordinaire V-Ryu that shows off what she can do using her EX Fukiage buff in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

There are a bevy of useful set-ups included here involving the beefed up special move used in conjunction with a jumping normal attack. Fuzzy guard on the taller characters in the game, ambiguous cross under mix-ups, and fake corner cross ups are what you'll find here, and most of these sequences lead to a quick stun.

Another great set-up to keep an eye out for is that which is performed on Dee Jay. After a back throw, Makoto can step over the downed fighter using her forward heavy kick. If she dashes forward after that, well, just be sure to see for yourself.

Capcom suing Koei Tecmo for $9.43 million, claims patent infringement in 50 titles

Just on the back of SNK filing a criminal lawsuit against Square Enix, Capcom has now thrown its legal hat in the ring against Tecmo for patent infringement.

According to a report by Sankei, Capcom is suing Tecmo for patent infringement found in Samurai Warriors: Xtreme Legends and 49 other titles. The company is looking to acquire a total of about 980 million yen (roughly $9.43 million USD) from the lawsuit.

The exact nature of the patent is a bit vague. It seems as though Capcom is actually referring to the concept of expansion packs. Apparently, the suit was filed in 2002 for a function that allows you to add new content by combining an existing game with another piece of software.
