Every week we line up with our money and our hopes. Every week we're disappointed. I do love Galaga ever since I played the cocktail table Galaga/Ms Pacman machine when I was a kid but I don't want it as the star release for virtual console. That said...pinball.

@unrandomsam

I think it does reward the better (skillful) players with leveling up and unlocking different subs. I think it's great and worth the $10. Nintendo is trying to make money off of it, nothing wrong with that. But a skillful player with a free sub has only a slight disadvantage, if any,over a paid user. Free to play, but not pay to win.

Do you ever wonder if Nintendo is intentionally trying to fail? I would love to see the faked enthusiasm that must exist in their meetings. Bring us the heads of the virtual console team! Then fire them.

I don't mind having more games but this scares me: Iwata-san says, “The DS will be the main driver for profit for the next fiscal year and the firm will focus on more efficient marketing.” MAIN driver for profit? DS games? Iwata please..

@MixMasterMudkip I think that's his angle. It'll be met with more apathy. The 3DS has a higher install base so if he's looking to squeeze pennies he's barking up the wrong tree. Can you imagine anyone ever saying, "You know, I want a PS4...but Wii U is gonna get DS games so I'll buy that instead"?

Iwata says that DS games will drive hardware sales of Wii U by showing off the second screen experience....that's just stupid. There's right way and a wrong way to relive the glory days. Pretty sure this is the wrong way.

@Nareva
The hardcore AC people buy two so they can trade with themselves and acquire more goods. I never played one before New Leaf but it hooked me. It's addictive. Perfect pick up and play. I've got over 1200 hours in now...it's a little sad.

As much as everyone is freaking out, I'm sure Nintendo is freaking out worse. They're losing tons of money in casual impulse buys right now. In the entire time I've had my 3DS I've never seen an outage this long. I just feel bad for the people trying to download their Link Between Worlds digital copies. Enjoy your Face Raiders and AR games you poor souls.

It does seem a little late but I guess they can start aiming for the tax return crowd in the U.S. soon. I was discussing Wii U with my mom and she told me she thought it was a portable because of the gamepad and since her grandchildren had 3DS already they wouldnt need it.

Noonch commented on Poll: Nintendo and the Wii U Fight For Your At...:

I went to Best Buy last night to pick up ZombiU for $15. I thought all WiiU systems sold except the dusty Nintendoland bundles. Then I walked around the corner and saw a stack of about 50 WiiU Mario bundles with a few missing from the top. So who knows. Zelda bundles have been selling it appears. The good thing is that stack still counts as units sold I would think on Nintendo's end. Either way, we should at least get another year out of the system before they give it up even if it doesn't sell well this shopping season.

I love Nintendo. I've owned/bought almost every system they've released with blind faith. But I do not have Wii U. It seems to me that Wii U owners are being treated as second class citizens by publishers. What's worse is that even with a miracle holiday season there are still no 3rd party games in development to sustain it. Games take time to develop. The Wii has a great virtual console, it seems Nintendo is flushing money down the toilet by not filling the Wii U and 3DS eshops with virtual cashcows. In short, I'm worried.
