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.



marnelljm commented on Packaged Physical Release of Wii Sports Club M...:

I have never been a fan of digital releases for full retail-like games (Ducktales: Remastered). I always want a physical copy of it so I can do as I please with it. Until Nintendo changes their online so the games can tied to an account and shared between systems, the only digital releases I will buy are NES games on 3DS and SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger and Secret of Manna on Wii. The price for the physical copies of those games is outrageous, and also the digital release is reliable unlike some NES games and SNES games with old save batteries.



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

Well, what the hell are they working on anyway? Because it certainly isn't Wii U games. Seriously ridiculous it took them this long to make a simple Mario 3D game, great! WIND WAKER HD!!! Amazing feat by adding a fresh coat of paint on a ten year old Gamecube game. Bravo! You mean to tell me they couldn't have released many classics from the SNES on 3ds? BS. The Wii had no problems running N64 games so why are N64 and Gamecube games not on Wii U VC. TIRED of the trickle of games that haven't been up to par besides Earthbound (thanks mates took ya 500 years).

Just total BS that they haven't gotten their act together after such success on the original Wii.



marnelljm commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:

@wcb123 I personally know of at least 10-15 people that still think its an add-on for the original Wii. I don't think the gamepad is bad in any way, but is it worth the confusion and possible failure of the console? Just patch the games already out and start fresh using pro controllers and remotes. People can easily understand they can use their old Wii remotes.



marnelljm commented on The Nintendo 2DS Was The UK's Best-Selling Con...:

@Worthy funny too considering the 2DS name was "confusing" and the 2DS was "ugly". So what does that say about the Wii U? Perhaps people actually are aware of it and just aren't buying it because it is priced too high and there aren't must-have games for it? Shocking, I know.
