It all started with Aladdin and Sonic on the Mega Drive, then Mario arrived with his triple jump and high octane kart racing on the ENNNNSSIIIXXXXTTTYYFFFFOOOUUURRRR. The rest is History. Also Banjo Kazooie. And N64 Magazine. And Beetle Adventure Racing. Awesomeness.

If they'd dropped the whole Metroid thing and just called the 3DS co-op shooter "Federation Force" , it would have garnered some respect from gamers as a fresh IP. But instead Nintendo have inflamed the Metroid Fanbase - it feels tacky because Metroid is a specific brand associated with alienation, strong female leadership and eeriness.

What was ultimately missing was a sense of blockbuster. A lot of the games look like mobile experiments, thin and flippant ideas. I guess if Zelda had not been delayed or at the very least shown, it would have been more satisfying because that will be a blockbuster, which is something the Wii u struggles to get more than 2 of in a given year.

Well the opportunity is there so got Sonic, Charizard (which I might give someone as a gift) and wii fit trainer for the hell of it.

Is Mario Party Yoshi really that rare?

Intend to get a normal yoshi but not in any rush as they seem plentiful - a popular character that'll surely restock plenty.

If zero-suit samus and Ganondorf become avilable again then consider me all happily amiibo'd out.

As a point of comparison how many PS4s & XBOnes have sold?

I'm not sure what Nintendo can do to grab attention from more consumers. Sony really turned my head at E3 this year because they had variety, creativity and surprise. Not that I can foot the bill for a PS4 but there were compelling reasons put forward to own one.

Microsoft were boring and generic - most of their games were FPS - and old franchises were milked more than even Nintendo has managed recently.

So I guess Nintendo have a mountain to climb to challenge Sony for the mantel. The NX might as well launch ASAP to give Nintendo its best chance but it will have to find a receptive market - whether that's going to rest on graphical prowess, innovation or just simply a greater bulk of software, it's difficult to say.

As Shigsy points out the Wii U has fallen by the wayside at the mercy of the tablet market and as a console proposition it doesn't make sense to the majority of consumers.

So we can expect the NX to be a clearly defined product.

How about F - zero NX as a launch title for next generation? It represents the arrival of the future, the music would make for an incredible E3 opening trailer and making Nintendo fans wait so long for new f - zero means plenty of folks would want the console right off the bat.

Sony had Final Fantasy 7 remake, shenmue 3, an Ico successor - lots of lovely original ideas. Microsoft was awfully generic and Nintendo looked lazy. I guess every dog has its day - Last year Nintendo knocked it out the park and this year was Sony's turn.



YoshiTails commented on Weirdness: eBay Listings for the Club Nintendo...:

Here's something to put things in perspective- for all the nintendo products I have bought totalling 4 figures easily in cash terms I have got two folders + bookmarks, a yoshi plush toy and a tiny lamp from Club Nintendo. Wow.... we're suckers.
