JuleyJules commented on Extended Nintendo Network Maintenance on Wii U...:

@Yoshis_VGM Last month's Direct was hardly major especially if you're a Wii U owner. imo it was EXTREMELY disappointing for Wii U. Hopefully if there is one it has a bit (if any) 3DS new and loads for Wii U. They really need one for Wii U to calm fans down, get up the excitement and show what's coming. Maybe Baseball is coming and the idea of accounts not tied to systems would be great especially if they announce a special edition bundle for Mario Kart 8 or something!



JuleyJules commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

@Shroom_Muncher I'm not regretting my Wii U but I'm tired of games not coming to it. However, I think Nintendo needs to step it up and do something about this. For one thing 3 months between games like SM3DW to DKC:TF to MK8 is ridiculous! How do they expect to sell systems and attract 3rd party developers like that? They've got to release games like they do on 3DS and have 2 or so at a time or in the same month. After all on May 2nd TWO games are coming to 3DS from Nintendo! That never happens on Wii U but it needs to so while it sucks WB is not bringing this game to Wii U who can really blame them??



JuleyJules commented on Recently Departed Official Nintendo Magazine E...:

As marketing manager hopefully he knows how to get the word out for Wii U. With his experience as editor of a magazine he know very well what needs to be done! Let's hope it's the start of good things for the UK and Europe as big games are released!



JuleyJules commented on Extended Nintendo Network System Maintenance S...:

I seem to recall that last time we had extended maintenance on Wii U the update happened immediately after. I guess we'll see tomorrow and hopefully there are some surprises for Wii U owners though I'm not holding my breathe. We don't all own a 3DS after all.



JuleyJules commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@Warruz It's very true as the PS4/Xbone are getting a lot of the same games with a few exclusives - even if it's more than before - and Wii U will continue to have more family oriented games and other exclusives like Super Mario 3D World that can't be found anywhere else. As the great games come for Wii U sales will go up and it might be the companion system. I think that now that PS4/Xbone are out the talk about "next-gen" will die down as they are now current-gen along with Wii U. As that happens it'll be back to the way things have been for a long time now. Sony & MS will battle it out for the top and Nintendo will sneak up in between them as they appeal to a different set of gamers in addition to some who don't simply go with one company and that's it.



JuleyJules commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Resilience Against W...:

@Blastoise-san I find that so irritating too. This past weekend here in Canada there was a great deal at Future Shop where you could trade in any game for PS3/360/Vita/3DS or Wii U for AC4, COD:Ghosts or BF4 (on PS3/360). The staff told me it was current gen systems only. When I asked why Wii games couldn't be traded they said it's only current gen. Uh, Wii is current gen - Wii U is next gen! I was irritated they didn't see it that way! So what Nintendo released two systems in one generation? That makes no sense!



JuleyJules commented on Iwata: Wii Fit U's Free Trial Period Will Impr...:

@TruenoGT Usually in NA things are available after noon EST. A few more hours and time to download. I'm looking forward to using the wii fit meter to keep track of things when I'm away from home and maybe it'll be motivation. That combined with Zumba next week should help keep fit over winter before running season again in spring!



JuleyJules commented on EA's Financial Figures Reveal Dismal Wii U Sof...:

I love how they don't release anything for 7 months, put out crappy ports of games, bash Nintendo at every chance they get, publicly come out and say they are avoiding Nintendo systems with new games like Fifa, Madden and Tiger Woods and THEN they release news like this! More reason not to buy EA games again. Plus if it's only 1% of sales if they didn't make money they certainly can't be saying it's because of Nintendo or the Wii U. Move on and keep putting out annual games that are not much different year after year. Pathetic!



JuleyJules commented on Nintendo Provides Reassurances on Wii Availabi...:

Why is Nintendo purposely competing with itself? Sell Wii games but tell consumers they can play those on the new Wii U system and ONLY sell that! This makes no sense. Nintendo Japan apparently has the right idea. It's time Nintendo American & Europe follow suit.



JuleyJules commented on Soapbox: The Wii Changed The Face of Gaming, B...:

I barely play any Wii games now since they're a pain with a separate menu. That has improved with updates but I wish you could just insert a disc and it would bring up the appropriate way to start - gamepad or wii remote. Personally I love the Wii U as I'm playing games I never could before like Assassin's Creed, Batman Arkham City and next year Bayonetta 2. However, it will be great getting games like Wii Party U this week, Wii Fit U, Wii Sports Club and Mario & Sonic at the Olympics in the next few so that others will enjoy the system too. I think we'll see a change when people can play familiar games and over time some of them will try new games. Down the line there will be lots of games coming for fans of Nintendo games to keep us all happy with Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country:Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros 4, Yoshi etc!

What we do need to see very soon without a doubt is advertising. Casual gamers and families aren't going to know the Wii U is there once PS4 and Xbox One come out in November if Nintendo doesn't step up advertising AND have a new Nintendo Direct at the beginning of November. They get a lot of press when they have them and people talk about it too.



JuleyJules commented on Interview: BetaDwarf On Humble Beginnings, Bri...:

I wonder if this next-generation will see more indie games on Wii U and PS4 simply because Microsoft will continue to force delays. Time to get with the times MS especially if Xbone sales are way behind Sony which seems to be the way it's going to start off.



JuleyJules commented on Reaction: Nintendo Reminds Us of the Wii's Glo...:

Love the idea rjejr had to get Ellen playing Wii Sports Club online with Sophia Grace & Rosie when they're home in England. Imagine the views that would get on youtube! Advertising is key to get word out on these upcoming games as well as Wii Party U.



JuleyJules commented on Rayman Legends Sells More Copies In The UK On ...:

I bought it on Wii U - the only system I have - and it shipped already! Out tomorrow here and I can't wait!! This is the system it was originally made for and seems to be the best one. Glad to see it's exclusive to Wii U in Japan.



JuleyJules commented on Talking Point: New Super Luigi U Opens The Doo...:

Just downloading now and will give it a go later on! Other ideas for a game to add DLC on to get players back playing is Nintendo Land. They could add in some other franchises they might be bringing back down the line. There was an article recently that Reggie said they're thinking of ones to revive. Put them on NL to guage response by fans. Also, for NL it would be great, if they aren't doing a full Wii U Sports, to add some of those games into NL as other 'attractions' that people could play. It could get some other casual fans playing again. It's still a pain to have to load the Wii menu to play older games.



JuleyJules commented on Rumour: Best Buy's Wii U E3 Demo List Revealed:

@zeldagaymer93 Someone on miiverse pointed out that Nintendo has always been very secretive. It's possible that Reggie will announce others on Tuesday after the Direct. I do hope they have learned and we'll see soon. They need to show big system sellers. In any case I'll be at Best Buy on Wednesday!!



JuleyJules commented on Rumour: Best Buy's Wii U E3 Demo List Revealed:

They better not be! We’ve heard of these games for 6 months. They need to have Zelda: Wind Waker, 3D Mario, Mario Kart and maybe Pikmin 3. Luigi U is bloody DLC. They need to blow people away and the 4 above wouldnt do it. They’ve said Mario 3D and Mario Kart are at E3 as playable demos.



JuleyJules commented on Ian Livingstone: Nintendo Should Have Their IP...:

"Nintendo should have their IP on every platform. Otherwise a whole generation of young people will miss out on their games."

If these young people want the games buy a Nintendo platform. If you don't it's your loss for missing them! Nintendo had games on other platforms like Atari 2600, Intellivision and Colecovision when they started out. Then they brought out the Famicom/NES. Since then they've not been on anything but their own. Why on earth would this change now? It's not like Nintendo is in trouble or anything of the sort. These idiots need to accept this and buy a Nintendo system instead of wishing, praying and saying stupid things like this. If that's the case Microsoft should put Halo on other platforms and Banjo Kazooie on the Wii U. Sony could put out Little Big Planet on MS and Nintendo too.

What is the chance of any of that happening? About the same as Mario on anything but Nintendo I's say.



JuleyJules commented on Oh Snap, Now Rayman Legends Is Coming To PS Vi...:

More reason to skip this on Wii U. An formerly exclusive game now coming to another platform with new exclusive content. What's next PS4/Xbone versions with the PS Vita 'exclusive' content plus the Wii U exclusive levels too?



JuleyJules commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Next-Gen Challenge ...:

@Peach64 I completely agree. Sony and MS continue to be threats and competitors. I think Nintendo know what they need to do to turn things around just as they did with the 3DS. If the big games start coming out and there's still low sales then yes Nintendo would be in trouble with the Wii U. I don't see that happening though.

One thing I don't think fans of Sony and MS foresee is trouble with convincing the public to upgrade. I think they have a steep hill to climb just as Nintendo did. The marketplace is different than before, they're still supporting PS3/360 with no backwards compatibility and the price could be high based on specs. After the fans rush out to get them it'll be interesting in 2014 to see what happens. I've read so many times in articles that people are planning to wait to see what happens. Time will tell.



JuleyJules commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Next-Gen Challenge ...:

I vaguely remember talk a few months ago that there will be Wii U Chat to mobile devices. If that happens then the chatting would be more useful. For now I have yet to use it. The usual topic that more games are needed continues to come up but I think that starting with Wario in June to the end of the year we'll see lots of games a lot more often. At the moment the talk is that there are not enough games; later on I think it'll be there are too many great games to keep up with.



JuleyJules commented on EA Developing Frostbite Engine For Mobile, But...:

Exactly! This will come back to bite them in the butt. When PS4/720 come out and struggle for sales in this new market EA will see what all this crap has done for them. In the meantime Nintendo will be releasing their big name first party games and interest in the Wii U will go up. Christmas time will come and kids will be wanting their Mario Kart, Mario 3D etc.



JuleyJules commented on Activison Anticipating Rough End To 2013, Wii ...:

So this time it's Wii U that's partly responsible. What's next? if PS4/720 don't have great launches he'll blame them instead of the lack of games people wanted? Of course it couldn't have to do with Activision itself or the changing market.



JuleyJules commented on Wii U Virtual Console Launch Lineup Is Revealed:

I agree that the lineup could have been larger but these are not as simple as putting the games on the wii virtual console. I've read that people want ALL the games on day one and they too would complain that the weeks after launch there were no new games. I hope we get the update tomorrow and VC on Thursday but who knows. Hopefully they release a few games each week to keep us happy! We did see other games in pictures on Monday. I did see something about more maintenance on Thursday. I really hope that means update is before and maintenance is to add VC.



JuleyJules commented on Wii U System Update Coming Next Week:

these updates are great news. I'm looking forward to vc, wii booting from main menu and auto updates. I'm guessing that the wii u will update any software we have on disc based on the saves we have on the system. Either way it'll be great to update while it's off.



JuleyJules commented on New 3DS Nintendo Direct to Broadcast on 17th A...:

Honestly I would be fine with this 3DS Direct if at the end of it they simply announced release dates for Pikmin 3, Wario, Wonderful 101, Wii Fit U and the date of the update and miiverse change to mobile. Waiting until E3 to announce new games we've not heard of and show footage of them is fine by me! Dates that's all we ask for.



JuleyJules commented on New 3DS Nintendo Direct to Broadcast on 17th A...:

I know they have the 3DS and need to discuss it but it's selling well. What about release dates for the Wii U games we've been waiting on, date of update and news about Miiverse coming to mobile. Wii U really needs more attention here not the 3DS.



JuleyJules commented on Nintendo Download: 14th March 2013 (North Amer...:

Can't wait for Lego City to download on Monday and then NFS:MW is pre-ordered to ship out as well! Finally new games to play.

Supposedly March 21st for Zen Pinball 2 but we've heard dates before. Let's hope this time it happens with Star Wars tables too.
