@iikki5 you're awesome dude. Glad to see a Nintendo fan that still sees the reality and error of Nintendo's ways. There's nothing wrong with being a Nintendo fan and also pointing out what they can improve on so that they can regain their popularity amongst all the gamers that moved on to other consoles

@JaxonH And I understand voice chat isn't for everyone but nowadays there's a solution for everyone in the form of parental controls and the mute button. I personally benefitted from voice chat on Monster Hunter 3 on Wii U just because it's easier to tell my teammates if I spotted a monster, plan to set a bomb, or just to make funny comments and socialize during gameplay. And perhaps the fact that Nintendo's online service is free is what's preventing them from offering a full fledged service like Xbox Live. If that's the case I hope they announce a paid online service in the near future.

@JaxonH By no means do I think the lack of voice chat will affect the quality of Splatoon. It still looks like a solid game with that distinct Nintendo charm. But when people start saying that it's ok for Nintendo's online services to be outdated just because Nintendo feels the same way that's when I feel there's a problem and it will only elongate Nintendo's archaic stance on modern gaming

I was looking forward to some strategic 4v4 matches with friends but like always Nintendo hates any form of real socialization between friends. I'll be wanting to ask my teammates for help during a match and the only thing I'm able to do is select a prewritten message that says "good game"

I can see the concern that people have when it comes to Nintendo flirting with mobile gaming. While my initial concern was that we would soon be seeing a generic, free-to-play, side scrolling Mario game with microtransactions I also remembered that Nintendo values quality and that they wouldn't just follow that conventional trend. Nintendo made it clear during their presentation that they're seeking ways to bridge the gap between consoles and mobile devices. With that being said I feel that Nintendo's take on mobile games will offer a different approach and experience compared to its competition. A coulple of examples of this idea would be something along the lines of a companion app/mobile game where say you control Link in a digging mini game with Dampe from Ocarina of Time. And whatever rewards you unlock whether it be rupees or materials to upgrade Link's equipment could be transferred over to the console version of Zelda. Another idea I feel is imminent is using their dedicated app as a central marketing hub for all the latest news, releases,etc. I can see accessing the eshop and pre-purchasing the newest titles, downloading a demo and having it ready to play on your console when you get home or watching the latest Nintendo Direct. The possibilities are endless and that's why I'm looking at the glass half full.

KingofSaiyans commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

My list of Wii U games (excluding numerous VC titles)
Nintendo Land
Pikmin 3
Splinter Cell Blacklist
Rayman Legends
Zelda: Wind Waker HD
Wonderful 101
Mario 3D World
ZombiU
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
DK: Tropical Freeze
New Super Mario U
Resident Evil Revelations
Mario Kart 8
Hyrule Warriors
Bayonetta 1 & 2

As far as games the Wii U hasn't disappointed me, BUT their watered down online multiplayer, lack of cross game/party chat and major 3rd party releases are the only complaints I really have against it.

No price cut. I think bundles with compelling software like Mario Kart 8 or Smash Bros will get Nintendo through the holidays. The console is already the cheapest of the 3. If PS4 is outselling Wii U and XBOX One at $499 that shows that consumers don't care about price, they just want a good gaming console with good software. Wii U has plenty of ammo: MK8, Smash Wii U, Mario 3D World, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Toad's Treasure Tracker. What they need is advertisment everywhere
