@WinterWarm can't help it bro! My passion for this hobby is great! With the wii u I see lost after lost opportunity and I just get sooo mad at Nintendo for not seeing certain things that we fans do see...you can spend another couple hours just discussing cross buy (or lack of it).
I refuse to download ANY vc classics that I have on wii or wii u that I have to pay for again just to have on my 3ds! And the Shame of it is that there's quite a few vc games I wouldn't mind having on my 3ds!
But I will stand my ground till they fix that!

@WaLzgi yes they did especially for the Genesis. The output was incredible between sega japan, sega America, and other outside teams in japan & the states that created these Genesis games but didn't have the $$$ to publish them!
Yes of course I realize again that development teams are larger- been following the industry closely since my Atari 2600 & Bally astrocade purchases in the 70s when one guy did it all!! ....there's this thing called out sourcing or subcontracting tho!! Or know what?? Hire more staff and assemble more teams?? Nintendo needs to explore that more and I don't care what anybody says they have the $$ to do so. Sorry Can't convince me otherwise. I think sometimes they're just a cheap company!
They had sega do F zero for them on the GameCube so why not now?? Get creative and find ways to pick up their out put! Especially when you know wii u isn't on fire right now (but slowly improving) and knowing that with 3rd party retail support all you can hear is crickets!! And to pick up the pace with virtual console as well!! Simple...

@WaLzgi uh....Sega was supporting Master System right into game gear during the Genesis era. That's 2 systems at once. And then Sega CD. Then supported Genesis, sega CD, & game gear going into the Saturn launch!! C'mon man!
Sorry you can't give Nintendo a pass here.
Iwata even admitted that they underestimated the length & involvement of HD development and I feel that backed them up big time and they still haven't recovered yet...E3 however, showed signs of slight improvement but there are still franchises they haven't touched in years! F zero and Metroid just to name 2!?!?
And again don't even bring up virtual console...terrible terrible!! They've lost touch of what classics are with very few exceptions!

@CaviarMeths thank you!! There's no reason why they can't arrive at that rhythm of 1 game retail per month by say next year. I know it's 25 years ago but sega was releasing from 2 - 5 Genesis games a month until the third party games finally kicked in.
How? By reaching out to other studios and increasing Sega's American staff along side Japanese production etc!
Why? Because they knew they only had 10% of the market and that 10% was shared with Atari who by 1989 was only a shadow of its former self! Also because they knew Nintendo had almost all third party locked up so they no choice & stepped up production...made sense then & would make sense now...

@WaLzgi I don't think 1 major retail release a month is too much to ask for. They are a huge company with billions and much resources and need to step it up a bit in light of the bad 3rd party situation.
Perhaps it's true the NOE been localizing since the 90's but I always read that duty was shared with the US. If not then I stand corrected. But it's probably safe to say that NOA at least on wii u hasn't localized anything since earthbound....for the record I'm a tremendous wii u fan and every Nintendo system before it. Just wanna see it succeed is all. :-)

@WaLzgi you're talking out of your butt. I run a business with 200+ workers my friend..Nintendo profits have been on steady decline since wii u launch beginning with forecasting 9 million units sold which turned out to be less than 3 milion sold thru...STEP 1: - boss takes salary cut (Iwata) & other high up suits take cuts as well!! This means you too Reggie!! STEP 2: lay off unnecessary staff in this case translators why? Why not? What the hell have they localized since Earthbound?? Why carry their salary??
Step 3: shut you're imvestors up any which way you can and keep them smiling!!
Step 4: get some damn games out the door???? Ya think?? The only major title from Nintendo between MK8 & Hyrule Warriors was......Wii sports club??? C'mon man they need to do way better than this especially knowing full well that they're 3rd party retail support has almost completely dried up!!
To add insult to wii u injury the virtual console release pace has been nothing shy of atrocious!! It's absolutely ridiculous and all I read see & read about is how everyone seems to agree!! I could make a list of missing classics on vc that would stretch across the Verrazano Narrows Bridge!!!!
Sorry, I saw these layoffs coming a year ago and I wouldn't be surprised if NOA was next cause their still with their head in their donkey, haven't localized poopoodoodoocacapoopledoople either since earthbound and the only reason they're slapping Nes remix together on a disc, like they did with wii sports club, is because they figure it's a good cheap way to get another game on store shelves quick to fill huge retail release voids & try to achieve some retail presence!! NUFF SAID!!!!

joey302 commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

My favorite console ever!! Was such a big SEGA fan!! Wanted them to mangle Nintendo cause I was pissed that Nintendo mangled Atari! Lol. But really the Genesis blew me away!! Wow!! Such an amazing library of games!! My personal genesis collection consists of 300+ games most of which are compete n mint condition!
So yea SEGA really blew it today and should've celebrated this bday with something! Probably should've been an announcement to get classics on the wii u vc?? But then again this is not the same SEGA of 1990 when Mr Kalinske was running the show! Great book btw, Console Wars, if you guys haven't read it yet!

@k8sMum Makes sense. What happens is when you hear of tragic news such as this you try to make sense out of it in your own mind and you simply can't especially not knowing all the circumstances. Either way I was a huge fan of his and still in complete shock!! So many classic movies!! RIP Robin!

Hard to believe! As powerful as depression can obviously be I cant help but wonder how the combination of having plenty of money for the best treatment and a loving family around him couldn't save him?!?!? Or am I just ignorant? Yet sincere..

Even though i download plenty of games, The more games for wii u in retail the better! Most people shopping wii u games or the system itself don't have a clue what the eshop has to offer anyway! Or worse yet, that the eshop even exists for that matter!! At least if an eshop game is converted to disc like duck tales & wii sports club they can see the games on store shelves otherwise they probably wouldn't even know the game exists as a download for wii u! The more retail games the better anyway! I'm old school and I'm proud of my collection too!
