I rather have them focus on adding voice chat (at least when I race with my friends) instead of wasting ressources on mariokart.tv website.
Even though I know this is probably useful groundwork for other websites/apps linked with NNID for other games to come.

Kids who loves tablet don't care about "Why don't we have eBay, Gmail, Amazon, Spotify and countless other popular applications on the Wii U". Kids only likes games. Parents buy tablets for their kids because everybody can use it. And tablets can go in the car, in the plane, at grandma's house while the gamepad sadly can not (or not as easily). Thus the tablet replaces the home console and the handheld. This is a battle for the next Nintendo iteration the one with the unified OS which will facilitate home play and play on the go on the same device family. This iteration (Wii U and 3DS) need to to just deliver good games until the next iteration.

I hate the fragmentation between Wii classic controller and Wii U pro controller meaning that, especially 3rd party titles, are not supporting classic while they are all supporting pro controller. It would have been better then if they or Nintendo had released some Gamecube pro controller then.

There was no special Wii U+ Mario Kart Pack released in Japan and no free game so I am not so suprised

I am glad you are being harsh with buggy ports. I have Lego Marvel on Wii U and while it's a good game for my son, the bugs and crashes are so frustrating that this game could have also been marked down especially since they don't patch it when they could...

While I agree with the propositions (improving communications, marketing and eShop) and surely agree that founding indies would help a bit too, that is still not going to be sufficient to make some profit. What Nintendo need is to go after the categories between indies and AAA. Invest in some western studios, in some mid size japanese studios, this will be an investment not only for the Wii U but for the future too. Capitalize on your current users by improving 3DS and Wii U interactions with cross play and cross saving. In the meantime work hard on your next machine and reward faithful Wii U owners with free transfer (or cheap) of their library on next machine.
maneauleau commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:
I would have like an advanced wars for Wii U with the gamepad it would have been nice I think. They could do some nice RTS or Tactical RPG with the gamepad don't you think?
maneauleau commented on Mario And Zelda On Mobile Could Bring New Play...:
Nintendo capitalize on what you have, offer cross platform buy and cloud saving to play seamlessly from one device to the other. Unleash the VC games, make it rain and make it cheaper too.
@Nomad you are right that we should wait since Mario Kart and Smash Bros are around the corner and potentially they attract new players. But what if it's not enough? Isn't it better to try and think now about alternative solutions?
I think Nintendo should push harder is effort to attract loyal 3DS owners to the Wii U and vice versa before deeper phone interactions.
I see a lot of people saying it would be wrong for Nintendo to put some of their games on the smartphones and while I respect that and understand that, I don't see anyone proposing an alternative way to regain profitability.
And that's the problem Nintendo is facing.
So ok no games on smartphones and for sure no games on concurrent platforms but then how do you make the extra money? I am sorry I don't have a proposition either then.

@PinkSpider I still can't believe there have been no Wii U footage of the game yet. But if you search there are also no real footage of the game on any consoles. The only version being displayed is always PC I believe.

@Kirk Great list, you just forgot to tick the box that makes the console region free.
maneauleau commented on Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (Wii U):
The best part is that WiiU is the superior version with all the gamepad possibilities: map om the gamepad or quick character select on the gamepad or choice of coop spit screen or no coop splitscreen with the gamepad. Only regret, no wii classic pro controller support while wiiu pro controller is supported.
@withoutdk The console doesn't really need more ram or better performances, what it really need is more good games or system seller games if you prefer.

I am not convinced by this usefulness of the gamepad in that situation. Hopefully there is more to it that I don't know or realise.
maneauleau commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:
I forgot to add that I really hope the next Nintendo home console will also come with a gamepad
I think the gamepad appears as an odd or clumsy thing for most of the people who haven't owned it. Even trying it out in a shop doesn't reveal its value. But once you become a WiiU owner it becomes a love story. Sure the screen definition could be better or the battery life should have been sorted straight away. But still, it offers so much and at the same time the developers can choose what to implement. So much more possibilities such as:

@kokirii it's only temporary.
At 2 euros the game is a steal, even if you are not into puzzle, just buy it to show our interest in cheaper games too.
maneauleau commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:
I think and feel exactly like you Thomas, I am not only a Nintendo player, I am also a PC gamer and I appreciate genres like FPS, RTS, dota-likes etc... but I really hope these and Nintendo can coexist because I need both. And if I have to choose I would prefer Nintendo because I am not really convinced or attracted by ultra realistic graphics. Life is realistic enough, let me enjoy dreamy unrealistic colorful worlds instead. I hope Super Mario 3D World will be like a Christmas fairy tale and will sell Wii U like hot breads and let the Wii U build some confidence and a bigger audience. We need more titles like this.
maneauleau commented on Review: Toki Tori (Wii U eShop):
Man for 2 euros, whether you like it or not or whether you have it on another platform, you should just buy it. So that send the message is sent around that price has also a big weight on purchases decision
