nintykid commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

@hylianhalcyon Yep gotta agree with you. SM3DW was a good game, but nowhere close to the hype it got. Nintendo should really just drop moer traditional Mario games for a decade to make it feel fresh again. They gotta come up with something more immersive...

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

I agree with this guy. I have yet to play a game in which I say "wow, the gamepad is what makes this great".
SM3DW - gamepad is useless, used only for some occasional unnecessary touch controls and it mostly mirrors the TV
Lego games in general - gamepad is map or inventory, and is used in Undercover for that scanning thing; nothing worth the gamepad's cost
Zelda WW - gamepad shows map or items...
Pikmin 3 - this is the game which I think best uses it with the managing of pikmin, but again the game could totally be played without it, doesn't justify gamepad's cost
Not even Nintendo knows what to do with it, what were they thinking?
And I'm surprised at how many fanboys come to the gamepad's defense. I mean, it is useful for off-screen play, which is why it should be OPTIONAL, because it brings nothing whatsoever to gameplay.

@Oubie
You're probably right. However I think that a more powerful Wii U that would come with the pro controller would attract way more people than the way it is now, even though probably a good number would move as you said to PS4/XB1. Lego Marvel Super Heroes for Wii U, for example, has a really inconsistent framerate due to underpowered hardware. Things like this keep people away from the console and its software.

Nintendo should focus on actually delivering an awesome experience rather than "innovating" with their accessories. Where are all the VC games for Wii U, third party support (which when present is usually a bad port), decent Netflix app and so on. I'm sure they'll deliver great content in a while but it could be muuuch better.

@jord91
You made a point haha. But I still think the gamepad keeps the console back. It's looked at as a gimmick by most of the gaming community, and I'm sure many of them haven't bought the Wii U because of the image that the gamepad gives to the console. Besides, the latest sales figures show the Gamecube did better than the Wii U... I think Nintendo should concentrate more on the actual on-screen gaming experience instead of many accessories and extra screens which suck a lot of man power which could've been used to make the games even more amazing. My opinion though

The gamepad should've been optional. What it adds to the Wii U experience is definitely not worth the price it puts on the console. At this point Nintendo definitely won't drop it. But I hope next time, Nintendo decides to put their money into power instead of expensive gimmicks. Seriously, if the Wii U had the power PS4/XB1 have and had a regular controller, everyone would go after the Wii U, because besides the third party games which would be on the console it would also have the exclusive Nintendo content which is amazing. Too bad :(
