Just hurry up with the NX and put the wii u out of its misery.

"It's a really interesting game for us because it allows us to expand out to a group of people who may never have considered Wii U before" Ads on cartoon network isn't reaching out to people who may have never considered a wii u before!!!
I don't think this game will be a system seller, this game will chart at about no.5 and be gone from the top 20 within 2 weeks
Boxmonkey commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:
Splatoon is not a system seller! not a chance

Perfect adverts for the audience Nintendo are going for, after all these ads wont be on at 9pm they'll be morning ads on cartoon network!

Just to expand on my comment about twitch. On the first page of their site they say they get 45 million views a month. That's 45 million people purely watching other people play video games.
Websites that people visit to watch games are only getting bigger and bigger. Twitch is fast becoming massive, with thousands of people tuning in to watch someone else play through a game. Nintendo are so far detached from most of the gaming world it's scary. I personaly believe things will only change when Iwata is removed and Nintedo realise that it's not their console's that are the problem. The people running the company are the problem.
@OMC79 why do people that support nintendo say there are no good games on other consoles? I'm currently playing Bloodborne and it's twice the game that anything I've played on my wii u is.
Will today's average 15-year-old still be raving about Nintendo when they're 35? Not a chance in hell! Nintendo exists because of nostalgia, they are nowhere near the company they were in the 90's and probably never will be again.

Its quite sad that Nintendo cant even manage to convince Mojang to port minecraft onto the wii u. it really does tell you all you need to know about the current state of Nintendo and the wii u.
Boxmonkey commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:
This game will be fun but ultimately it won't sell systems. No voice chat is a typical Nintendo move, thinking they need to be moral guardians of us all. It's decisions like that which ruin nintendo and will be their undoing. They will never learn what the mass public want
Boxmonkey commented on Gallery: Fresh Xenoblade Chronicles X Footage,...:
the videos make this game seem really easy! the monsters aren't even bothering to fight back.mind you everything's going to look easy after bloodborne

To late my wii u is already on ebay. Only game I wanted was zelda u and that will probably be released on the NX along side the wii u.
Boxmonkey commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:
@Monkeyofthefunk so you think that nintendo have revealed a new project (NX) but won't show us anymore until 2 years and three months from now 😱
Very true the NX could be anything but anyone sitting on the fence about the wii u will be much more likely to give it a miss if they believe a new home console is on the horizon.
Nintendo's message is very confused these days and that's been the problem form day one with the wii u.
Maybe I'm just expecting to much form nintendo I've been a day one buyer from back in the early 90's. Nintendo used to push boundaries with the game they released on new consoles, these days they don't seem very capable at creating something truly breath taking. Four years into the wii u's life for the type of game nintendo should be making in year one of a new system.
The major concern with the delay for me is the fact that if it's not being shown at E3 this year you can bet it will be shown at E3 2016. We will also get our first look at the NX that same E3 which will immediately put off anyone buying a wii u. Essentially Nintendo seem to have killed any momentum and any chance the wii u had to succeed.
Nintendo haven't really pushed their own hardware and made a truly groundbreaking experiance on the wii u to date and now it looks like the one game that could do that will come at the end of the consoles life. Not good enough for me.
Boxmonkey commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:
I can't believe all the comments on here defending nintendo! They have had many years of planning and preparation to make this game. They have completely double chocolate chip cookie up any chance the wii u ever had with stupid planning and decision making. I for one will give the next nintendo console a wide birth and if god forbid they don't release zelda on the wii u I will never buy another nintendo product.
It's almost laughable how bad nintendo have been this generation.
The more I think about it the more I'm convinced this will be a wii u + NX release. Late 2016 early 2017
Boxmonkey commented on Feature: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U - What D...:
@crimsoncavalier you should visit nintendo life again mate.
Gutted it won't be released this year! But I'm massively angry that this game won't be released until the forth year of the wii u. They showed a tech swim of a zelda game to show off the wii u and now we have to wait many more years than I expected to get a new zelda.
It's very disturbing that the game won't be shown at E3! It sound like it could be delayed until at least the end of 2016, otherwise they would have move to show.
One thing we do know is that will game has no hope of being released this year.
Boxmonkey commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:
If the NX is another console with a new control system that in anyway feels like a gimmic I won't be buying it. I would imagine by reading the comments section on this site since the news of the new system was announced many others will join me in leaving Nintendo. Could be a great move from nintendo or a complete disaster, only time will tell.
Boxmonkey commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:
People are talking crap when it comes to third party games! Nintendo always had many third party games am they always sold well. This changed with the wii because it was underpowered so the aaa games couldn't get a port. With the wii u third party games didn't sell because they were largely bad ports of old games or low quality. If nintendo release the correct console with a controller system that people know how to program for I'm sure third parties would come flooding back to nintendo.
But what's more likely now is nintendo continuing down this road of "go it alone" which will just result in them losing more of their loyal customers, without pulling new gamers into nintendo. I fear for the company because they seem to make one stupid mistake after another.
Nintendo going their own way again! That just means no third party support and a bleak future for Nintendo in the console market.
Just give us a powerfull Nintendo console that has the right architecture for easy ports. That way we can enjoy big N games and the GTA's of the world.
For the first time since the Snes I won't be buying the next console day 1, I'll take a very weary approach. No third party = no purchase from me.
Boxmonkey commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):
Nintendo madness is the only reason I can think off as to why this game isn't online. I would have bought this game but I'mNot paying £40 to play this game once withy wife.
Boxmonkey commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:
Can't wait for zelda to be released! Apart from that game I'm not really interested in anything else nintendo have to offer so I think I'll trade my system in.
Boxmonkey commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):
@Chicagoway I've supported Nintendo since the early 90's and I've never been so disappointed with a console! The first party games have been great but if things don't change massively with the next console nintendo will be in real trouble. I shouldn't have to spend £350 on a PS4 just to play a couple of third party games.
Remember when Nintendo said that N64 games would be on the VC? Nintendo have let every fan down with this console so far! It's underwhelming in every aspect. Roll on Zelda U so I can finally trade it in and never buy nintendo again.

The UK's lack of interest in the wii u is a problem nintendo can't fix now! It's too late and the complete lack of advertising is crazy. Two years ago I bought my Wii U and I'm yet to meet anyone else that owns one.

Wii u VC! Waste of time.
Boxmonkey commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:
Another moronic decision from Nintendo! A massive lack of games in 2015 and no horror games since zombi u. Just give me zelda so I can get rid of my wii u.
Boxmonkey commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:
I have just looked up third party titles due in 2015 and found 4 games: Project cars, human Element, ashes cricket (2013) and sacrirgium.
This time next year the wii u will be on its way out. Zelda will be the swan song.
What does the wii u third party calendar look like for 2015?
Boxmonkey commented on Nintendo Download: 25th September (Europe):
Wii u VC is awful! Two years in and no N64.
Boxmonkey commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:
I bought the game on ps3 two weeks ago because of the lack of info regarding the wii u version. Anyway after I bought AC3 on wii u and it froze constantly I don't think id bother anyway
