I'm getting it to support Chibi-Robo and for the awesome Amiibo. With it and Olimar I've got both of the ones I really wanted. On the other hand I'm disappointed that this is a platformer. The original NGC one is one of my favorite games for the system and Park Patrol was just an ok follow up. Don't get me started on Photo Finder, abysmal gaming at best and horribly broken at worst. As stated earlier the true DS sequel never left Japan and the Wii New Play Control remake never left Japan either. If they had this series may be held in higher regard than it is now.

I'm bummed we don't get more Nintendo Throwback weeks since I wanted a sale on Crashmo and the two Dillon games.

I'm also bummed we aren't getting any additional Wii downloads as Xenoblade Chronicles and Kirby's Return to Dreamland would be automatic buys. Though I'd also need an external hard drive at that point. I'm practically in need of one now.

For this week however I'll be grabbing Pokemon Shuffle (w/o transactions), Citizens of Earth 3DS demo, and Ice Cream Surfer since I can't turn down a cheap SHMUP. I'm also going to be picking up Kirby and the Rainbow Curse at retail but I'll get it on sale or used since I don't pay full retail price for anything.

Just goes to show that most of the people hosting these awards are either clueless or think they are smarter then everyone else and want everyone to be awed by their "intelligent" choices. While it's nice to see Mario Kart and SSB scoop up a few rewards it's the ones they completely miss on that make everything else they pick feel like feint praise.

I was hoping Gunman Clive would see a small sale, yes I know it's only $2, when the sequel arrived but I'll just grab them both anyway along with Metroid Prime Trilogy and maybe something else depending on what's in the Throwback sale; both Dillon's please? Or Crashmo?

I was more referring to the XboxOne but I'm tired of people referring to things about the Gamecube as bad when that system was loaded with quality games.

As for unique, you're correct and I should have used quality instead of unique, Happens when I'm typing in a hurry. I don't care what system someone plays on if they enjoy it. I know what I like to play and I know where I can find it.

The Gamecube is one of my favorite systems with a ton of great games on it so if the Wii U is even close to that I'll be happy.

In terms of sales I'll take a console with fun, playable and unique games over a console with a bunch of cookie cutter 3rd party games any day. If I want better graphics I'll buy a PC.



jmbarnes101 commented on Nintendo Dominated Japan During 2014, Despite ...:

I don't care much about the console wars and I'm happy with my Wii U. I see a bright future ahead since missteps usually lead to learning and innovation and that is one thing Nintendo provides in spades. However, If N never made a new console/handheld again I have 6 generations of consoles and 5 generations of handhelds full of fantastic games to play and more money in my pocket. Obviously, I'd prefer Nintendo succeed since it's the brand that has the games I prefer playing.

At the same time I have no issues with Xbox and Sony but they remind me of DC/Marvel after their relaunches and I'm just not their target audience. I'm happy they offer things that others want to play but why do people have to fight about it? It's like people who fought over WCW and WWE. One died and the one that was left is a much worse product with the lack of competition. Is that really what people want?

Been watching this site for ages and finally created an account so I could post to this. Some of these are very hard to find cheaply so they'd be great.

I would love to get the following in any format on the Wii (in order of preference):
Grim Fandango
Day of the Tentacle
Maniac Mansion
All Monkey Island games
Sam & Max Series
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (yes I know it's on the new one) Indiana Jones' Greatest Adventures
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Star Wars Trilogy Arcade Game
