Miiverse: Two months in and the network's flaws are increasingly apparent

Digitally Downloaded writes "It's been about two months since the Wii U launched. We've had some time to get ingrained in the Miiverse community. How has it stacked up as a social network, or a resource for gamers? Well, not especially well on either count." (Miiverse, Wii U)

I have seen allot of negative comments on Miiverse, I ignore them, and I am also glad we can see if someone has played a game or not. Nintendo was smart in that respect. Also not every game is for every gamer. I have said it before, I really like Zombi U, my friend hates it. That does not make it a bad game. I challenged my friend to play it next weekend, with only short breaks of playing other games. Can't wait till he has to sit down with it for a couple of hours straight. LOL. I am sure Miiverse will be getting some of his comments that are going to be negative, at least at first.

I can imagine if DMC was there in Miiverse. You would have tons of trolls. That's the unfortunate side-affect to communities, you always have your idiots out there who have ulterior motives.
1upgamer99  +   659d ago
LOL, just like the few on N4G who make it sometimes irritating. Oh well, it takes all kinds. I do like Neko_Megas comment about the inbox.

One thing I'm starting to hate is I have to go to the Miiverse to check my messages, why couldn't their be a inbox or something?

Other then have to go through alot to read a message, I got no problems. Well besides loading screens. But that has nothing to do with Miiverse.

1Upgamer99, ZombiU is pretty good. Only think I hate is sometimes it lets you skip the load screen and sometimes it doesn't. Other then that the game is pretty awesome and I like how if you die an come back to where you died at. Theirs your old character as a zombie wanting to eat your brains XD

What a fail article. Not every opinion is going to be positive and having a negative opinion about the game is not trolling. Also, if you find issues with a post then report it. The function is there for a reason.
1upgamer99  +   659d ago
I think the one point of the article that is important, is some of these people making these comments have not even played the games they are bashing. So if you have not played a game how can you have such STRONG opinions about something you know nothing about. Kind of like Non Wii-U owners saying this and that about the Wii U without having really having spent any real one on one time with it.

"For a start the community, though small (with some games I can come back to the community a day later to find my comment still near the top), is absolutely filled with trolls."

"filled with people with nothing better to do that post about how bad the game is, and make other comments about the game I can only assume are meant to be funny."

"This would be fair enough if the people criticising the game had actually played the game. Most of them haven't."

"In the worst-case scenarios, such as the recent Rise of the Guardians game, the accusations of shovelware were flowing thick and fast... before the game was even released."

Sounds like N4G to me. Or pretty much every other gaming forum in the internet.

Touché.

Except it isn't. This dude is grossly exaggerating this. Yes, Miiverse has its fair share of trolls, but actually the moderation in there is great. Most of the "trolls" are pretty mild and do it just for innocent fun, they are usually amusing. Try and say a bad word publicly on Miiverse, and Nintendo's admins will delete your comment pretty fast.

In my honest, uncensored opinion... this dude needs to take that giant stick out of his ass.

I was all about the Miiverse when I first got my Wii U, but recently I haven't checked it at all. I've actually been just using my Wii U to play games, believe it or not. When a new game comes out that I'm excited about, maybe I'll get back on the 'verse.

I use Miiverse regularly and haven't encountered any of the issues the article mentions. The crappier games communities have turned into surrealist wonderlands (I suppose that's a kind of trolling) but it's normally incredibly funny artwork and things that make you smile. Some of the quieter communities have been turned into free-for-all galleries - but surely that's better than a barren wasteland? I just wish I could draw so I could join in the fun.

The more active communities are also fine. Well moderated, friendly and you can get help and advice without some buffoon messing up your thread.

I've posted a hell of a lot on Miiverse and haven't received a single "Wanna cam?" friend request so gawd only knows what the author of the article has been posting to encourage those sort of requests... In fact if anybody has any advice that can get me some "Hot Miiverse Action" let me know :D

why is trash articles like this being written?? Im mean come on! This is a flat out lie of an article on Miiverse
zingers  +   658d ago
I sincerely doubt he has ever had a "wanna cam" request. And as for things going unmoderated for too long, that's a load of crap.

what is this person on about?

Miiverse is great and i love seeing teh pop ups and updates from people.

There is so much potential with Nintendos online this time and it's solid.

I have all the systems and I have to say, i find it more intact then PSN and as solid as live and it's FREE.

It can only get better.
