Just a couple of months ago myself, I was plenty worried about the release schedule for retail games. Now, not so much. Here's a list of what I am getting for retail releases this year:

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Mario Kart 8
Bayonetta 2
Lego The Hobbit
Sonic Boom
The new Transformers Title
Yarn Yoshi (fingers crossed)
Hyrule Warriors (crossing different fingers)

This is besides what might be announced at E3. If just the eight manage to come out this year, factoring in eshop titles, that is MORE than enough gaming for me. Even if they show up in bunches I can still spread them out.
On the other hand, I look at last fall as a negative time. According to my Wii U log, I put 32 hours in September, 46 in October, and 36 in November. But then I had played everything I had backlogged. There was nothing appealing to me in December or January and I was only on both months for an average of one hour, mostly for the browser while the rest of the family was on the PC. So far I haven't had anything to play this month, so DKTF is looking good to me.

I purchased my system on launch day and have never been unhappy with it, just disappointed at times. At this point, though, this year doesn't look dire overall just sparse at times.
