Whilst I'm as frustrated as anyone about the delay I'm not going deny myself the pleasure of playing it when it does hit Wii U. After all whats the alternative? An arcade racer or miss out entirely! There's nothing else like this on or coming to Wii U.



1wiierdguy commented on Skylanders Trap Team Tablet Starter Pack Poses...:

The presence of Amiibo on Wii U and 3ds is going to seriously reduce sales of Skylanders and Disney on Nintendo platforms IMHO. I wouldn't be surprised to see these upcoming installments be the last on Nintendo platforms.



1wiierdguy commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

I'm not disappointed as never expected it to have online anyway. Who gets a Nintendo game expecting online features to be fully realized? The second reason I'm not disappointed is I'm not getting this game anyways. I've tried some of these games and they're boring as hell. No Zelda coat of paint is going to magically transform that! ;)

There are certainly a few games and franchises I'd love to see on Wii U. I don't believe that 3rd parties are coming back though, regardless of userbase. The 3ds is the best selling platform this gen yet it doesn't have great third party support. A bigger user base means we will continue to get the Lego and Just Dance games etc. but that's about it IMHO.

I know all common sense will go out the window and we'll get all the "lazy third party" trash Comments Wii U owners like to spout. It's simple business, not enough of us bought the game so we miss out on the DLC. You want support from third parties then pony up the dough and support them back, with sales.



1wiierdguy commented on Interview: Codemasters - F1 Race Stars: Powere...:

If this had online I would have purchased the game on release day, without means I probably won't purchase it at all. I hate having to give up features and modes just because I own a Nintendo system. Treat me like like a second class gamer and I'll keep my money in my pocket.



1wiierdguy commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:

Reading all the negative news and doom and gloom in the gaming media and on forums I have to wonder if the rest of the world got the same Wii U console I did a year ago. The Wii U is an awesome console but you'd never know it without trying it yourself. Seems burying Nintendo is the "in" thing these days. :(



1wiierdguy commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I feel the Wii U will come third in sales but it will do better than Gamecube that's for sure. As long as Nintendo stays profitable then the games will continue to come. That's what's really important, games that can't be had anywhere else.



1wiierdguy commented on Talking Point: Sony's PlayStation 4 Poses a Fr...:

Wasn't too impressed with what Sony showed so far. All that streaming of games, downloads and updates is going to mean latency, even on decent Internet speeds. No backwards compatability for disc or digital Ps3 purchases, or the Dualshock 3 for that matter. Looking past all PR fluff I saw a prettier Killzone, tech demos and Ps4 versions of current gen games.



1wiierdguy commented on Talking Point: Time to Adjust Nintendo Direct ...:

Nintendo can't announce its major titles in development for after the launch window now. We all expect Sony and Microsoft to announce new hardware next year. Most likely at E3. Nintendo needs some big announcements then to grab some hype back. Sony and Microsoft announce their hardware. Nintendo responds here's the next 3d Mario title, Zelda looks like this and Mario Kart is coming.



1wiierdguy commented on Wii U Struggles to Make an Impact in the UK So...:

The concept of the Wii U just isn't as instantly appealing as the original Wii was. It's a system that you really have to go hands on with. It's then you understand. The convenience of off TV play. The allure of Miiverse. Unfortunately Nintendo made the same mistake they made with the 3DS launch. They relied on the appeal of third party games. They said it themselves. When they saw how many titles third parties were committing at launch, they held back on some of their planned 1st party releases. This has led to the launch games feeling a bit lacklustre. Reducing the overall excitement for the system.
