In this week’s episode of The Score we find out your thoughts on indie collaborations. In addition, with the recent news of Ubisoft’s abandonment of mature titles on the Wii U and the news that Call of Duty will be skipping the Wii U platform this year, do you believe that Nintendo even needs third-party support?

If the cross-over means more levels, I’m okay with it. Still, making a lot of this type of collaboration efforts at this rate will make the reaction “yeah! I love the idea” to “meh, another one. Can you be more original?”.

I can expect a Super Smash Bros. style game with indie characters in the future, featuring non-popular indie character like… Red Block, The Monkey from that puzzle game and The Girl from that platform game where her name I don’t remember.

I actually love these kind of cameos..it’s like all indies are there for one another…big companies can learn from them.

Hell seeing a Blok Drop U level in Maze has me close to supporting it ha.

-Fresnokila

I like the good ones like Hex Heroes, but anything linked with “the lower end” doesn’t excite me one bit. Certain indie developers can produce beautiful and unique games, one after another… others on the other hand just release shovel-ware and should honestly consider finding something else to do with their time.

-SKNYGY

I like it. More indies should help eachother out instead of trying to talk shit about one another.

-SirNintendo

Why not? Indie games are a interesting and fresh world and they’re getting stronger. An indie community creating games together only makes it better. I want to see the indies of today become the great developers of tomorrow and if they’re putting business competition away to collaborate, it may revel a good future of relationship among them and good results for us who play their games.
