    Sure is dusty around here with this small pile of games being released, half of wich are remakes or ports of games most of there fans have already played. I also love how most of the games they are releasing now are just sequels anyways. Btw Nindeadno it was nice of you to do a remake of a game that was touted as one with ageless graphics (windwaker) on;y to then make a report showcasing how much better the graphics are.  
       This inst a trolling thread its merely a case of tuff love. So get your pent up frustration out, im defiantly not letting myself become an abused housewife to Ninoutofideasoh (Ok that one was a stretch) like so many fans before me.
    So to you Nintengofuckyourself all i can say is Get your heads out of your asses before you choke on your own head you dumb fucks, for you are no longer the naked king parading around without any cloths we see that your naked, and you just dont seem to give a shit you dumb, fat, old, bastard.

    All of that is true, and it (probably would) bugs me (if I didn't have so many games to play).

    Like i've said before, they pull the fucking shitty nostalgia card because they can't come up with new ideas. They can only abuse their old, good ideas. Wind Waker HD? Wow, I can't wait to buy a Wii Poo to play a game I already own and not to mention the worse version of it! but WOWZA!! NOSTALGIA FACTOR<<< A MUST BUY. At least A link between worlds is a new game but still....WOW ITS LIKE A LNK TO THPASTT NOSTAAAALLGIA!

    There is still nothing released on the Wii Poo that makes it worth buying. it had a shitty launch, and I wont consider buying it until MAYBE it costs 99$ AND it has a large library. Super Mario 3D World, DKCR2, Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros should have come out near launch. Instead Wii Poo owners we're stuck with Nintendo Land and New(aka,Rehashedx4)Super Mario Bros. U. Good job Nintendo, really trying hard these days.

    Well actually, it's called DKC: Tropical Freeze,



    I'm glad they didn't name it 2, cause like you said it would sound dumb. They also got rid of the returns, another good idea

    Wii U is doing really shitty still. Not much of a surprise. Probably has to do with the price and that people think that it's a Wii and that there's no games for it even now.

    Even if the Wii U sales never pick up, Nintendo's consoles could fail for the next 20 years and they'd still be fine financially. But, here's to hoping the Wii U gets a huge price drop so I'll even consider buying it.

    To an irrational degree.

    Holy shit that just peeves me. My Mom and Ron both thought the WiiU was just like the Wii.
    What baffles me is that this has never been a problem before. I can't recall anyone thinking the 360 was just like the Xbox, or that the Game Boy Advance was just like the Game Boy.

    Ya, I don't really get it either. I'm guessing the "U" part of the name isn't a very noticeable name change. Where as Advance, and 360 I guess is...? I'm not sure. I think a lot of it has to do with poor advertising. They didn't market it well enough and clearly didn't make it obvious it was an entirely new console.

    But I still don't understand how that could be something that people thought. I thought that right away it was a new console. Everyone is just too lazy to look anything up about it?

    Its pretty much both a naming problem as well as a marketing failure. Or at least im assuming. Iv overheard many people at gaming stores asking what the difference is between a wii and a wii u is, or if they would be able to run wii u games on there wii. My guess would be that Nintendo has always been used to a crowd that was really deep into there gaming knowledge. After all Nintndo power was one of the first gaming magazines out there and out sold the shit out of its competitors. Then when the internet came into its own everyone started sharing there knowledge with each other online, putting themselves in a bubble, and forgetting that most people really don't know that much about games or consoles. So im guessing that Nintendo made the same mistake when they made the Wii, and marketed it to a wider audience who normally wouldn't play video games let alone follow news about new up coming consoles that are, for the most part only talked about on gaming areas of the internet or in niche magazines and T.V shows. . That could also account for why they had a hard time selling other game for the system (along with the mostly shitty library of games).

    also if that was too long, and or didn't make sense due to my shitty linguistic skills let me shorten that.

    Nintendo greatly overestimated the gaming knowledge of the mostly causal audience for the Wii, and are now paying for it.

    I agree 100% on that.

    One thing they always do is call each console/handheld a similar name to the last.

    Nintendo
    Super Nintendo

    Game Boy
    Game Boy Pocket
    Game Boy Light
    Game Boy Color
    Game Boy Advance
    Game Boy Advance SP
    Game Boy Micro

    Nintendo DS
    Nintendo DSlite
    Nintendo DSi
    Nintendo DSi XL
    Nintendo 3DS
    Nintendo 3DS XL
    Nintendo 2DS

    Wii
    Wii U

    I'm surprised more people weren't confused about the DS shit. There's so many damn DS' yet they sell so well.

    the ds's probably did well because most of them can still play the same games. the 3ds is the only one that uses different games.
