After making the mistake of buying my farm thinking it would be a nice casual sim I vowed to never buy a download game without first reading a Nintendolife review.
I agree with this article it should be categorized.

@unrandomsam That depends on who you are asking. Knight's was a good game for its time but it has aged badly. Only fans of the first game would enjoy a nostalgic replay.
I my opinion many of the NES games are timeless classics that comes from a time when gaming culture was completely different.

@Alucard83 Hardware power has never been the issue. Generation after Generation the system with the best offering comes out on top. gameboy colour won when the Game Gear was more powerful, playstation 2 won when xbox was more powerful, DS won when the psp was more powerful, wii won when the ps3 was more powerful. 3DS is winning when the vita is more powerful.

It has never been about specs.

@JaxonH I have to say. I disagree. Although I love my wiiu and the first party games, I can't afford a PS4 so I was hoping that the wiiu will at least get all the PS3/xbox 360 games in 2013 and 2014. I bought it back in December 2012 when EA and Ubisoft still pledged their undying loyalty to Nintendo. O well.

It was a really good digital event. It made the announcements entertaining it was amazing! Splatoon was a big surprise and and Amiibo looks fascinating!


Can't deny that some things were missing. Like the DS virtual console information announced months ago, and that Quality of life platform is still a big mystery.

Like it or not Youtube is a powerful marketing tool.

Getting games in the hands of youtubers like Pewdiepie which has something like 25 million subscribers and counting is important marketing strategy.

Even if the system is flawed that is the way it is going.

So I think this is a good move by the Big N. It is a step in the right direction.

@Dark-Link73 I get your point about the wording used. Middle class is a very vague term. but in context I believe it is a very fair word to use.

I come from South Africa and in Dollars I earn about $12 000 a year.

I own a wiiu and I am responsibly well off. But middle class is the word we use.

I bought my wiiu in June last year so the end of the first quarter and I did not realise back then what the wiiu would go through, but it if people could just look past all the bad sales figures they would see that it is a much better system than it was a year ago when nobody wanted it.

The miiverse is unrecognisable and all the changes are for the better. The eshop now has a really decent line-up unlike a year ago when it was a desert. The price drop and dozens of amazing games already out and more just around the corner.

When I got it I thought I made a big mistake but I don't regret it any more. Anyway yay for the 3DS.
