Why Mario Kart 8's Lack of Voice Chat Does and Does Not Matter

12d ago ... So Mario Kart 8 has no voice chat feature. Let me be the first to say that this kind of sucks for Wii U players (and technically for me when I get the thing in the future). A lot of people seem pretty upset by this news, and rightfully so. Some people really want to be able to talk to the people they are playing with and that's a perfectly fine criticism. Although, I do feel like some of the cr...

You never cancel a pre-order early.... especially over something as stupid as graphics.

18d ago ... Gamers have made me angry ALOT over the years. Here's a small list of the stuff I've dealt with. PS4 haters. Xbox One haters. Wii U haters. Cheaters in online multiplayer. People who try to "expose" you. People who want Ridley in Super Smash Bros 4. But THIS topic takes the cake. Some of you actually CANCELLED your Watch Dogs pre-orders because the graphics were "downgraded" from wh...

The Adventures of Rocksteady and Wii U

22d ago ... I read the recent news article about why Rocksteady took the decision not to port to the Wii U. I already knew they weren't gonna release their game on the Wii u as well as the PS3, X360, and smart phones. But in this specific article the commenters reaction towards Rocksteady was highly negative specifically for the Wii u decision. On the other side of the coin, commenters were also highly neg...

The Next Generation Console Dilemma

24d ago ... The new stationary console generation is finally here with all its excitement now that the three big players – Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft – are out on the market. Which console is to be chosen: PlayStation 4, Wii U or Xbox One? This is the first time in my life I have been very hesitant as to which console to choose. The only console that can be ruled out is Xbox One because I do not wa...

Why I left N4G almost a year ago

27d ago ... As most of you here that are reading this, I am a Playstation fan and have been since the PS1 but that never stopped me from enjoying other consoles and discussing even the ones I don't like fairly such as the Wii U. Why am I mentioning this? Because as a Playstation fan I am embarrassed to say N4G is probably one of the worst places on the internet for video game discussion and here's why....

What's "sexy" and what isn't "sexy" in gaming

27d ago ... I hate classifying gaming as "Sexy" but to be honest I just wanted an excuse to show off that picture of Palutena. Anyway, there are many things that people like, and many things that people don't like. It's mainly all opinions, but here's mine. We'll see if you agree. What is "Sexy:" Graphics This was a no brainer. I've stated many times that I don't care about graphics as long as they lo...

Wii U, XBox1&PS4 How the #'s Stack Up

29d ago ... I've read countless theories and opinions concerning people's favorite console and the reason they are "winning" the console war or why they are "losing". This invariably is followed by recommendations as to how their respective system should go about either furthering their "lead" or how to "bounce" back- So, I've decided to take another approach to what at times can be a very frustrating argu...

Wii U can succeed without muti-platform 3rd party support

32d ago ... Truth be told, Wii U doesn't need mainstream 3rd party games like Grand Theft Auto or the latest Need for Speed to be successful. The Wii U is getting its own exclusives, however they also need exclusive 3rd Party Franchises in which fans can become familiar with. Nintendo has the resources to establish 5 franchises if they were to choose to in my opinion. If I had control over Nintendo right n...

My Take on Gaming: 8th Gen

36d ago ... 8th Generation gaming is among us following the launches of Sony's PS4, Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Wii U. Nintendo's Wii U was launched last November and gave us a glimpse to what 8th Generation or more commonly known as Next Gen gaming had in store. Many in the gaming community do not consider the Wii U a true Next Gen console due to its weaker hardware specs when compared to the PS4...

10 Reasons why the Wii U Wins!!!

37d ago ... I am not going to write a "love" letter about Nintendo(though admittedly I do love Nintendo) and I am not going to try and be a "shield" for all the negative outlooks on the Wii U. What I am going to do is simply compile a list of all the strengths and positive things that I (emphasis on the I) see and have found as a Wii U owner... 1. Backwards compatibility-I can't stress the awesomeness...

Get it through your skulls;Graphics. Don't. MATTER! (To an extent.)

40d ago ... So news recently came out that Watch Dogs was apparently downgraded graphicswise after its delay. I don't understand HOW they made it look worse. I usually respect the game creators, but I don't know what made them think it looked better than before. I could've had this back in November for the PS4 or Wii U or Xbox 360, yet it was delayed to "polish." Now, is the downgrade worthy of CANCELLI...

Why am I getting dejavu from 6th gen?

53d ago ... Everything that's been happening seems VERY familiar, and I'm surprised nobody else has noticed. The PS4 is the best choice. It's cheap, powerful, has great multiplats, a few great exclusives, and offers innovation aside from the console at a different price. The PS4 is selling extremely well, and is dominating the other 2. Didn't the EXACT same thing happen with the PS2? The PS2 is the b...

The PS4 is selling well..... WHO KNEW!?

56d ago ... Everyday I go on the internet, I see articles talking about how much the PS4 is crushing the Xbox One and how it's close to outselling the Wii U. I expected it to sell this well..... and so did Son Ponies, Xbots, and even Nintendrones alike. We get it. The PS4 is winning. Be quiet and actually play your PS4 instead of gloating. We ALL knew the PS4 would sell well. It is an excellent console....

What is Innovation? And does it matter?

62d ago ... While some think the Wii U gamepad and Kinect 2.0 are excellent features to the consoles, some think that they should be optional, and follow in the footsteps of the PS4, which supports Off-TV play and motion control separately. I agree and disagree. It was the right move for Sony to let people get more Innovation out of there console at a different price, and simply let us pay a cheaper price...

An open letter [of thanks] to Indies on Wii U...

64d ago ... This is something that has been rolling around in my mind for quite a while, now, but for ages, I haven't really had a push to deliver it in any solid form on any place where most devs could see it, like on a public forum. The recent delay of Watch Dogs on the Wii U has given me that push that I needed to finally come out and say what I should have said since I first bought Nano Assault Neo....

miiverse.nintendo.net < the real evil

67d ago ... what is the miiverse ( Mii universe), I'll just copy and paste this nifty little piece ---- Miiverse allows users to seamlessly share accomplishments, comments, and hand written notes with other users. Miiverse is integrated into the system menu of the Wii U and 3DS, but social interactions can also occur within supported games and applications. ---- As we all know we are not free to thin...

Sony, We Need To Talk

78d ago ... I was just reading the article here on N4G where Sony said they don't expect the Vita to sell as much as the PSP and I was pretty disgusted. It's the inspiration for this blog and I will cover a few things I am either disappointed about with Sony, or what I would like to see them do. Sony, you need to stop half-a$$ing your handhelds. If you don't intend to throw your full weight behind a han...

Nintendo Should Revive the Gamecube Controller with Smash Bros Wii U

81d ago ... Super Smash Bros Wii U and Mario Kart 8 are the two premier titles Nintendo is set to launch on the Wii U later this year. In case you haven't heard, the Wii U isn't exactly selling all that well. Nintendo was forced to cut their sales estimates by more than 6 million for the system. Many have written articles with recommendations for "saving Nintendo" and "turning around the Wii U," but I'd...

What I would do as CEO of Nintendo.

85d ago ... Note: This isnt all i would do, these are just 13 descision within the realm of possibility that could help Nintendo in its struggle with the Wii U. What i do if i was CEO of Nintendo. 1. Put Xenoblade Chronicles on the eshop for $29.99, this would build hype for X as well as attract all the people not willing to pay 70 bucks for it at GameStop. 2. Fund a Resident Evil 2 remake a la the...
