Think the Wii U is a Piece of S&%$? Well Nintendo is Calling in the Plumber to Save the Day!

VG Republic Writes: Should you have an opinion about the Wii U as many gamers and media outlets seem to, then you more than likely share the sentiment that the Wii U is, for lack of a better term, a piece of S&%$. Nintendo has been dogged for their next-generation console not only for minimal upgrades over what the current offerings for Sony and Microsoft can already do and have been doing for going on 7 years, and with what is presumably on the horizon from the other competition. It has been a troublesome time with more time being spent on a Public Relations team attempting to clean up the crap storm that has flowed their way since the Wii U announcement rather than on what the system can offer; one had to wonder if the console would be able to make it in the competitive market. Then Nintendo announced today that they were relieving the duties of all personal from the clean up attempts and calling in the plumber to unclog the nightmarish mess. Yup, that’s right a new 3D Mario is on its way to the home console that Nintendo decided to announce before next months E3. (Dev, Mario Wii U, Wii U)

Best title of 2013. Brilliance.

Please be:

* Mario 64 2

* 200 Stars

* 20 Worlds @ 10 stars each

* 2 Stars in each world you use either Luigi or Yoshi.

* Music like Mario 64....as in...brand new never been heard in the series before type of stuff. The music fit the atmosphere of platforming and exploring that open world. It was nearly perfect.

* No cheap gimicks

Firstly the game may be shit (I said maybe) and second it's not even announced officially to arrive this year. Why not be patient before shouting from the rooftop?

Just make 3D Mario for the PS4 so I don't have to spend $400 bucks on your console just to play a couple games.
PopRocks359  +   604d ago
Hey, I didn't whine that I had to pay $300+ to play Metal Gear Solid 4 on the PS3. Either suck it up or don't pay. It's as simple as that.

C'mon man
Brucis  +   604d ago
Then wait a few years for a price drop like I did for the PS3. That or just don't get it. I paid about ~$300 for Demon's Souls, Disgaea 3+4, Ico+SotC collection and a couple others. Don't see me going "Why won't Sony give me their exclusives on a MS/Nintendo console so I don't have to buy their's." That's so silly, asking a company to give you their exclusives so you don't have to buy their system. Exclusives are the main point to getting a console, the "what games does this one have that doesn't" thing. Why would they ever do that?

I only played killzone 3, demosn soul, and valkary chronicles on my playstation
I guess i will start hoping that they go multi plat so that i can just have the new xbox
At least demons soul did

Obnoxious statement is obnoxious. Why don't they make a game like Gran Turismo, Uncharted, or InFamous on the Wii U, so I don't have to pay $500+ dollars to play those games on a PS4?

Oh, yeah, that's right. There's something called "First-Party Exclusives". I'm sure you'd keel over if you found out any of the former mentioned games were coming to XBOX 360/NextXBOX or Wii U.

That's all Super Duper! I was being obnoxious on purpose, you don't have to tell me I was. I was trying to imply that maybe Nintendo should think about selling their games on other platforms if they continue to be unable to move the Wii U.

I didn't know Obama had also taken our freedom of speech and opinion.

REPLY TO "Axonometri" #2:

- SONY wasn't moving the PS3 as well as they would have hoped for either? Now look at it? Nintendo wasn't moving the 3DS as well as they hoped to either - NOW look at it?

Your argument is invalid, my friend.

No... but it's really great for Netflix!

C'mon Nintendo... I need something to play on this thing!
Axonometri  +   603d ago
See, here is a innocent bystander proving my thoughts on the situation. He wants games for his Wii U real bad also!
Benjaminkno  +   603d ago
Omg dude, give it up. I don't see what everyone is bitching about, there's plenty of games right now. There's some awesome Wii games I still have yet to play.

The average Wii U gamer isn't going to be waiting for games, they're just going to enjoy it.
stuna1  +   604d ago
A nice play on the title! Because we all know plumbers are good for unclogging sh#t.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   604d ago
So, Mario is going to flush the WiiU down into the sewers?

Wait- do people still say, "Straight from the Sewers" as a compliment?

Anyway I agree "Mario is a life saver".

I hope he does it again- in a New WiiUist-Way.

A new 3D Mario adventure game is what the Wii U needs. ;)
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   603d ago
LOL_WUT now you got me confused.

Should I agree with or not... but then you're winking.

lol

-I guess will agree with the words not the wink.
DivineAssault  +   604d ago
But the plumber is already on the system remember? NSMBU.. Its not the mario galaxy successor but the plumber is there & it didnt help it.. They even have a LOZ game incoming.. Im not interested in playing WW again but we will see if the rest of the world is.. Rayman got delayed so im stuck with NOTHING to play on the damn thing til Bayonetta 2 decides to surface smh.. Wheres the smash bros progress?
BigDuo  +   604d ago
Smash Bros 4 has been in development for about a year now. If it requires as much time as Smash Bros Brawl did, then we're looking at around 2 1/2 years. Of course, there is also the 3DS version being worked on too, so its hard to say how much time will be needed if Nintendo plans to do a simultaneous worldwide release for both versions of the game.
yugovega  +   603d ago
if you can't find anything to play out of the 50 games that are on wii u the you either not enjoying games or trolling.
Genuine-User  +   603d ago
50 retail games?
I want to get a Wii U so bad but there is not a single game I currently want on the system.
Hopefully their E3 Nintendo Direct will change my stance on the purchase.
-GametimeUK-  +   603d ago
I'm a big Zelda fan and I want to play WW again. When the time is right I will buy a WiiU, but I wont buy one until there are plenty of Ninty exclusives
DivineAssault  +   603d ago
Well thats what im saying.. I jumped in & bought into it right away for nothing.. I thought id have rayman by now but its delayed (thanks MS) & i havent seen any progress on bayo 2 or smash bros so i have nothing to play right now.. I dont want any of the other stuff thats on it.. Was going to get Ninja Gaiden razors edge but its on PS3 for $40.. Why pay $60 when the gamepad controls werent all that hot?

Ill just have to deal with it but i really REALLY hope they dont redesign the system or gamepad along with a price drop when the good games come around cuz ill be PISSED! I know its inevitable for them to release a brighter longer lasting gamepad but still

Mario has sold over 2 million units on a low install base. Do the math 2 million times $59.99 and tell me if the game made Nintendo money.
thaimasker  +   604d ago
OMG That title. LMAO
gigoran  +   604d ago
Yeah! 1 game is going to fix the underperformance of the machine and the lackluster games! No problem! 1 game is going to solve everything!

What's a Wii U?
CaulkSlap  +   604d ago
Might make the Wii U worth buying to me. But no game is going to change the fact that the console as hardware is piece of garbage and overpriced for the capabilities.
yugovega  +   603d ago
wait you don't own the wiiu yet assume it's garbage, and overpriced? most wiiu owners have been happy with their purchase. that's why they aren't filling up the used hardware section of gamestop. talk to some real wiiu owners before assuming.

yugovega  +   601d ago
I disagree. I have a ps3 and it hasn't been plugged up in months. and my xb was traded in after nearly a year of nothing to play on it. I have yet to browse the web on my wiiu. Netflix? yes. games? yes. miiverse? yes. eshop? yep. haters gonna hate
thaimasker  +   604d ago
I want a realistic mario where u actually go around plumbing peoples toilets
mydyingparadiselost  +   604d ago
The goombas would be turds, and jumping on them would create badass particle poo effects.
And of course Bowser would be a sewer gator, the Princess a real estate agent and Luigi would sell meth on street corners. And the Ghost Adventures guys would show up to do night investigations on the Ghost House levels. Also the game would have to take place in Florida cause that's the only place a batshit crazy reality Mario game would feel right.
Yea, reality Mario FTW!
Totoro17  +   603d ago
You know what'd be amazing? A new Animal Crossing and Pokemon with online multiplayer capabilities, the NEW killer Zelda game (not a remake), and a surprise sequel to Eternal Darkness. If those were announced today, I'd buy a Wii U today.

hmm im still skipping wiiU.
Jek_Porkins  +   603d ago
Well there is supposed to be more than just a 3D Mario game, Wind Waker HD, Mario Kart, Pikmen 3, Bayonetta 2 and some other games are supposed to liven things up a bit.
danitanzo  +   603d ago
Dat title...
Benjaminkno  +   603d ago
Doesn't anybody else not like the fact that Nintendo is the only one that centers their games around their console? Sony and MS make hardware... that's it...
Which is why Sony and MS still have "traditional" outdated controllers.

Any software engineers they do have are bought. I just don't like that.

I'm not sure I see this ending well for anybody.
scottd  +   603d ago
Still wont buy a Wii U, Mario is not a good enough reason anymore (but thats me) Not hating on the Wii U there's just no reason I see for me to buy it. I've already played all these Nintendo games before... and nothings different from 10 years ago. I think Super Mario world is still better than Galaxy or the new super mario bros. games.
