Wii U is inherently weaker than both the PS4 and XB1, that's a plain fact. Your kinda crazy to think otherwise.

That being said, is Nintendo able to develop some wonderfully looking games regardless of specs, absolutely. The Wii U has some great looking games, but is it going to be able to run a game like The Division without some limitations? Nope.

@aaronsullivan

Point made, a game like Madden, or any sports title for that matter, could really utilize the Gamepad in interesting ways (picking plays, maybe a first person outfielders view for baseball).

However, third parties aren't gonna go the extra mile unless your console is a success. Who knows as far as EA, but it would be reasonable to speculate that they are the ones who are mostly to blame (just cause). Now it's like Nintendo is trying to appease both sides, those that like the gamepad and those that like more conventional controllers, but are not satisfying either.....

I think most can agree that Ubisoft did a better job of selling the gamepad than what Nintendo has done thus far.

@JaxonH

Why do you think the Wii U has had poor sales up to this point than? I'm guessing a lack of appeal to the wider gaming audience, like you pointed out? It's just annoying how the big N was swearing on a grave during the pre-launch timeframe that they were taking third party developers seriously this time.......and although I don't think the current situation is 100% of Kyoto's fault, they do deserve some of the blame for sure.

Also, I didn't know that about Destiny, you can't beat it with online random encounters?? I might cancel my pre-order as well despite enjoying the beta.

Soon to be third place after the Master Chief collection comes out, and that's with a year head start...

Bottom line though, the Wii U can have a goofy controller and 7th gen graphics, who really cares, it just needs more games in general. I know the people who bought the system a month ago have a backlog, but that really doesn't count,....

PS4 and Wii U is the way to go, although if I had to be forced to choose between two systems, it would be the PS4 and 3DS. That being said, I like the Wii U, but it's far from ideal in a number of areas.

@midnafanboy

Yeah, remember before the Wii U was launched?......Reggie swore Nintendo was serious this time, all of those great multi-plats we had missed out on during the Wii years, they would be on the Wii U now......with your favorite Big N titles.

It was going to be different this time, etc. etc.

sub12 commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

The Wii U simply can't compete software wise with the XBO and PS4, the disparity in actual releases during Q3-Q4 of this year is huge......and unfortunately it won't be getting better. I also fear SSB will not be turning things around, given that MK8 has a superior mass appeal.

As far as the 3DS, 2014 looks kinda weak compared to 2013 software wise, and the 3DS is showing its age pretty fast IMO.

sub12 commented on Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique A...:

The graphics look kinda early-mid 7th gen, but with that being said, it looks outrageous in all of the right ways, I'm not expecting rave reviews, but I am expecting an entertaining (if not rightfully dumb) story and lots of solid action.

Day one purchase for me. A refreshing title in the Nintendo published library.

@Hy8ogen

Yeah, as a launch customer I don't have a backlog of first party Wii U titles, however, I am running through the Wind Waker HD again on the Wii U and the PS4 has Valiant Hearts soon.

I really want to get my hands on the 90's Arcade Racer this summer though.

Nintendo still needs more games and at a higher rate if it expects to maintain momentum, it would be nice to see a summer release of something / anything.......yeah, yeah, I know about Sports Club, but personally I don't find it all that exciting.

@Peach64

Good point, there was nothing major to purchase since DKC: Tropical Freeze in February, it's no surprise that the attach rate for MK8 is huge. When you have been starving for sometime, you'll eat anything, and MK8 is a delicious ice cream cake.

As said above, MK8 seems to have had a decent impact as far as encouraging fence-sitters to pick up the Wii U........now Nintendo just needs to sustain that energy.......no peaking when a killer title arrives and than diving back down in sales once a few weeks have passed.

sub12 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Anybody else think that Nintendo prob held back a game or two from being unveiled? My only worries is that the Wii U schedule for this summer is pretty bare bones. 3DS is also kinda hurting.....lots of 2015, not so much 2014.

Don't get me wrong though, great presentation in general, kudos for sure.

sub12 commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island ...:

One of my fav games of all time, regardless of genre.....this is pretty much a masterpiece, and although very different, I prefer this title over Super Mario World.

This biggest area where New Yoshi's Island stumbled was the level design IMO. It was all very linear, point A to point B stuff, pretty uninspired, the original, on the other hand, has some of the best 2D platform levels ever........as in ever.

sub12 commented on Review: Kirby: Triple Deluxe (3DS):

What's up with IGN giving Yoshi's New Island a 7.9 and Kirby TD a 6?
New Island was a piece of dog poo, only reinforced by playing the original Yoshi's Island on the VC. Kirby on the other hand, while rarely ground breaking, is always enjoyable.

Damn, that was one purdy trailer, kudos to Slightly Mad for bringing this to the Wii U.......Nintendo needs more games like this. Looks like a legit competitor to GT and Forza, hopefully it's not saddled with in game purchases.

The real Nintendo 2014 E3: Vaguely reference future quality of life product for twenty minutes, notify us that Nintendo has overcome the technological challenges of playing Game Boy games on the Wii U gamepad, introduce New Super Mario Bros. 3 for the 3DS, and notify us that Smash has been delayed to 2015 for the Wii U, please understand.

sub12 commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

I think given the lack of big directs this year (nothing even close to being on par with January 2013) and the question marks surrounding new hardware and software developments, Nintendo will probably hit the stage at E3 2014, as they should.

sub12 commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

The Dreamcast had sold more copies then the Wii U at this point in its comparative lifespan, ugh. Nintendo should make the Wii U a 4 year console, like the Saturn and Xbox, the U has failed the catch the consumer bases attention to any significant degree.

sub12 commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

IceClimbers, I think thats a pretty solid prediction, but I still believe Nintendo will unveil something during E3 for the 2014 Holdiay season, even if it's a HD remake in the vein on Wind Waker.

I don't see them trumping the PS4 or XB1 anytime soon though.

I'm hoping Nintendo becomes pro-active on HD remakes for the Wii U as well,.....that strategy worked pretty well for Sony and the PS3, it's a cheap to make guaranteed seller that helps to fill the voids.

sub12 commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

If it was not for the 2013 January Nintendo Direct, the 2013 E3 would have had quite a few surprises outside of DKC: TF and Zelda: ALBW......so I'm optimistic that Nintendo still has a few surprises left in order to full up the second half of the year. For sure the 3DS must have something new in the works, like a Metroid title or a remake of Majora's Mask, given that both have been teased.

Year of the Yoshi is announced, Yoshi's new island is releasing on the 14th, we haven't seen anything on Yarn Yoshi in ages, Yoshi has yet to be announced for Smash Bros., and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is coming to the VC.
