marnelljm commented on Nintendo Has "Lost Its Way" But Should Never B...:

What worries me is that Nintendo is being mighty conservative lately...the Wii U was a risk that didn't work out. I think Peter has somewhat of a point. I wouldn't say they've lost their way but they don't seem to be willing to take any risks right now, even though a risk might be needed to jumpstart the Wii U (make gamepad optional, price cut, massive Nintendo Direct only focusing on Wii U, etc.)



marnelljm commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

Actually, I 100% agree with him. I've said since the system came out I will not purchase it until they make the gamepad optional. If I want two screens when I play, I will play on my 3DS XL. I absolutely love the games I have played on the Wii U using the pro controller, but I will never use the gamepad OR own it. I just do not like it. I don't even like looking at it.



marnelljm commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

It pains me to say this about the WIi U, but as Porky Pig once said "That's all folks!" Seriously, the Wii U is about finished. When a MAJOR first party release doesn't even sell 50K in it's first week, in it's home country.......I don't know how else to put it, and this is coming from a borderline Nintendo fanboy.



marnelljm commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (...:

@Funny_Moblin My friend has one, and I've beaten Mario 3D World playing on the gamepad (mainly because he also does not want to use it, haha). To each their own, I don't have a problem with people liking the gamepad, I just think they would sell a hell of a lot more consoles by making it cheaper and for people like me who do not want it. They made a 2DS? So why can't they make a Wii U without the gamepad? DKTF doesn't even use the screen?



marnelljm commented on Nintendo Releases Handy Wii U Comparison Chart:

@DarkKirby Amen. The window has closed, everyone is going for Xbone and PS4. The Nintendo apologists will blindly defend the console and say its going to explode in sales, but it won't. Sorry, Wii Party U isn't going to move millions of consoles. However the blind apologists will say otherwise. Sigh, back to my 3DS to actually play games...



marnelljm commented on Nintendo "Would Like to Enrich" Its Virtual Co...:

@wombatkidd Clearly you missed the point about the 3D Mario World. My main issue was that it took them so long to create this when it should have been ready months ago. Same with the Virtual Console. Every game that was released on the Wii should already be available on the Wii U VC. The fact that they do not have a unified account system after Microsoft and Sony have had them for YEARS just boggles my mind.
