Although the name "Wii U" didn't help its sales, I think the true problem was terrible marketing on the part of Nintendo.

Also, the sales of the Wii, while fantastic, were destined to not continue on with the Wii U to some extent, because the non-traditional/less serious gamers that were drawn to Wii don't have a desire to upgrade.

I agree, Splatoon would certainly be no.1 on my list. Super Mario Maker would be no.2 for me. I think those games deserve the top two spots because they are the freshest (pardon the pun) games Nintendo has released in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I love MK8 (it is my favorite Mario Kart to date by far) but it would be no.3 for me because it just doesn't break new ground in the way Splatoon and SMM do.



bassoongoon commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Mario Kart 8 is my favorite. Admittedly the only handheld Mario Kart I've played was MKDS. I've played all the console ones except Super Mario Kart. I hated MKDS because of the snaking. Never could figure it out...



bassoongoon commented on Review: Fit Music for Wii U (Wii U):

I've never gotten the whole workout game thing. They do not seem particularly effective to me. I don't think they have anything on going to an actual gym, but hey: if they get the blood flowing for some, that is a good thing I guess?

"...during normal gameplay, Mario Kart 8 continually drops down to 59fps."

Well: I just can't buy this game now. It drops to 59fps during normal gameplay? That is just unacceptably bad. I mean come on Nintendo, get it together!

"Given Nintendo's family-friendly nature, we've already expressed our concern to Sanuk about the title of the game."

Not everything on Nintendo need be family friendly. In fact, that is a stereotype that sadly steers some gamers away from the Big N.

Awesome! The console wars are pathetic. I do not really care what any one plays but myself, everyone has personal preferences and should respect the preferences of others. I do not understand why people get so worked up about video games that OTHER people play.

It is great to see his respect for a competitor (something many fanboys could learn from), and I liked what he had to say for the most part.
