MOOD SWINGS #6
Nintendo desperately need some fresh IP.
By MIKE HAZLETON & JAY TEE
Besides being the obvious side effect to a hormonal outburst, ‘Mood Swings’ is a weekly editorial crafted by our editor Jay Tee, alongside contributions from the JTGA team. It’s like a series of extended tweets, ranting or raving about something terrible / great that’s happened to us that week in our gaming lives.
It serves as a weekly collection of random musings designed to provide a snapshot of what we’re doing, things you should be excited for, and stuff to avoid as you navigate the choppy waters of this wonderfully unpredictable hobby.
Anything, from reactions to a new game announcement, surprising breaking news, to our cat just nibbled our thumb sticks, can be found here. Each “Mood Swing” will be tagged with either a green, yellow, or red Tarp badge. This represents a visual indicator of our reaction.

REINVENT THE WHEEL -
Now, this might not affect most people, since I was one of only twelve humans who actually purchased a WiiU and have therefore played most of them already. But any objective eye must recognise that this is not the Nintendo of the Gamecube era; experimental, weird, and willing to take risks on new IP. Look ahead to 2018 and all the big hitters (Smash Bros, Pokemon, Yoshi, Metroid, Bayonetta) are safe, secure bets. I love my Switch, but Nintendo should use E3 and beyond to establish a renewed wave of originality with their software. -
STUCK IN A REPETITIVE RUT -
I feel like it is pretty easy to make games like this addictive -
Arms was a good start. But Nintendo need more new, if the Switch is going to go stratosphere.
