@Wonder_Mask @TheLik98 @kkslider555200 All I know is that certain games like Bayonetta 2, X, Super Smash Bros. U, Mario Kart 8, and others should have these amazing commercials on tv before their release date comes. Don't show kids playing the games but show a older crowd of young adults and high schoolers. Nintendo can actually make the Wii U appear as the console with kid friendly games BUT also has a naughty and mature side. Man... I wish I had control over Wii U commercials.

@kkslider555200 That's exactly what I meant about the two terms "hardcore" and "casual". Lol

I don't think the lack of commercials is the issue. Everyone that knew about these games either has a Wii U, wants one, or went Xbox/PS. The crowd that these games appeal to have already chosen which system they want.

I'd rather have X, Smash, Kart, Bayonetta, Mario, Zelda, etc. potential games. Others would rather have CoD, Battlefield, Killzone, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising, etc. The OS and controllers have alot to do with this choice, too.

My point is that the audience for this game already knows what they would rather have, so commercials won't do much until the people who know the most about said products start to have a hard time keeping up. The only games they can advertise right now, are NSMB.U(part of the bundle, so check), Super Mario 3D World(check), maybe Game and Wario(not sure if there's a commercial), Sonic, and Mario and Sonic. They can't advertise stuff that's not out, really.

Even long time fans don't have patience for Nintendo, so what makes you think someone that doesn't jeep up with video games as much as we do, will?

@SCAR392 I think the Wii U has become a "companion" console. Its best to own the Wii U AND another console to be fully satisfied. HOWEVER... I do feel sad for those who just get a PS4 or just get a Xbox One and not a Wii U because they are missing out on some really great games. The same is vice versa. A Wii U owner should own a Xbox One or a PS4 or a PC so they can play games that simply won't come to Wii U.
The next Nintendo console prolly won't be a "companion" console. Its gonna stand on its own feet with strength from the second it launches. I think Nintendo has learned its lesson from the Wii U.

Wii U's best option right now, if I had to guess, would be to be a Japanese and PC gamer friendly console that serves as a niche to a good amount of people (the largest "niche" being the hardcore of hardcore Nintendo fans of course, quotation marks there very intentionally) and for other hardcore gamers to pick it up as a secondary system, as I have my doubts on getting a PS4 AND an Xbox One as a good idea for basically anyone.

and yeah, kinda like how no one listens to just one genre of music anymore, no hardcore gamer worth anything sticks with one brand's type of gaming system.

Please keep in mind that you really don't want to turn this thread into one of those type of threads.

While I agree that most cases might warrant another console(I plan on getting an Xbox One), alot of conclusions regarding this subject aren't entirely well founded.

No offense, but only a fool would think that Nintendo isn't capable of being just as relevant as the other consoles.

The Wii U can stand on it's own. This isn't 7th gen, over again. I'd argue that what we'll see during the lifetime of these consoles will similar to how 6th gen played out.

This is getting pretty off-topic.. My point is that we shouldn't be drawing conclusions until things hit the fan. I can assure you that that hasn't happened yet. I won't draw any conclusions until Wii U starts missing out on a year worth of games while Xbox One and PS4 are currently out.

Those 8th gen defined games that people are celebrating on Xbox One and PS4(2K 14, for example) are totally possible on Wii U. Just look at it this way: Even Dreamcast could have ran games that were on PS2 like GoW in some shape or form. If you look back, Dreamcast actually had better looking games than PS2. The difference is that Nintendo isn't in a bad financial situation like Sega was, so a Dreamcast scenario is literally impossible unless Nintendo literally burns at least $9 billion worth of yen.

EDIT: TBH, it's beyond ironic at what people have cited Nintendo's problem to be. They don't have money problems and their hardware is up to date. I don't think it's a coincidence that people are complaining about the GamePad and Kinect being mandatory with their respective consoles.

@SCAR392 and @kkslider5552000 I value you guys input. Thanks for sharing your opinion. I think all three consoles have flaws (U, PS4, and Xbox One) but I don't wanna change the thread so......
BACK TO ONE OF THE WII U'S BIGGEST BRAGGING RIGHTS.... X!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder how the game starts off.... Like does the game just thrusts you into a beautiful world with problems?

Well guessing from the beginning of the second trailer, our likely -to -be protagonist is in the army, and they already know what they're fighting So it's fairly likely that it'll be like Xenoblade in that the opening cutscene thrusts you into a war.

Judging by his design, it'll probably sound like your average 17-19 year old. Deeper than Shulk for sure, but not too deep. As for the name...your guess is as good as mine.

@TheLik98 I don't mean to sound weird... but based off the looks of the guy... he looks muscular.... I'm thinking he's in his early twenties.

I am looking forward to the Japanese voices in this game. I really like the JPN voice acting in Xenoblade.

While I don't mind the teenager focused thing that JRPGs love to use if done well (like TWEWY for example) but it is nice that while some of the main cast are teenagers, in Xenoblade that fact is incredibly easy to forget about and doesn't come with any of the questionable story ideas that certain other modern JRPGs would use (see: being a really bad anime instead of a good JRPG). In general, that's kinda the main reason Xenoblade Chronicles was so good, because it went against what people are sick about with your average modern JRPG, and being anime to sometimes embarrassing degrees would definitely be one of those things.

Sorry guys, when playing the game recently, in-game, Shulk's eyes can look brown-ish in some cutscenes, I guess in-game his eyes are lot more...subtly-blue?

Regardless, still super excited for this game. I'm probably going to disappear when I play it...

Anyways, out of curiosity, has anyone here played Xenogears and/or Xenosaga Episodes I, II and III?

I've recently dabbled into Xenogears, but even more recently have bought all three episodes of Xenosaga and started playing through Episode I. Gotta say they are some of the hardest RPG's I've played outside of Atlus' RPG's, but they're a bunch of fun!!

Also, I've decided: if Nintendo doesn't mention X in the direct this month, I'm ignoring this game's existence until something about it is revealed. That being said, even if they don't I'm probably lying, once you know this game exists you cant just forget about it.
