Gamers, 2014 is When You Can Buy A Wii U

GaminRealm: Nintendo plans on going out of 2013 releasing only “casual” mainstream titles for the Wii U such as Super Mario 3D World, Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club. You know, the kind of games that grandma and grandpa plays. In the hopes that it will make the console sell more but I highly doubt it. But starting next year, Nintendo will be focusing heavily on games aimed at the “enthusiastic gamer”. (Bayonetta 2, Mario Wii U, Nintendo, Wii U, Wii U Party)

Can't believe he didn't mention Mario Kart 8. That game looks like the 8th wonder. :)

Honestly, Mario games seem pretty hardcore to me.
AKR  +   383d ago
The insane difficulty of collecting the Green Stars in Mario Galaxy prove that it isn't casual-only.

Just because something doesn't have blood, gore, sexual content, profanity and high amounts of violence doesn't make it "hardcore". IMO - what makes a game "causal" vs. "hardcore" is its overall playability. To me, a casual game is a game that anyone can pick up and smoothly play, while a hardcore game is something a little more of the difficult variation, that requires skill and concentration.

I had a WiiU, it got stolen :(
I may pick one up next year if I see a good deal on Kijiji, other than that, I will wait until the holidays/2015.
Maybe by then there will be enough games to make me actually use it more than 1-2 times a month.

I have been waiting ages to get some proper Nintendo games in HD, and so far Nintendo has blown it.

Along with my PS3 and Xbox.

Why would I make that up? Are you mental?

^ It was a xmas gift from my wife.

It in no way changes the fact that I had no games to play, and was waiting for ones I wanted for ages.

My WiiU ID WAS Parapraxis.
I wonder if it's being used still :/

Nintendo admitted it themselves, they focused too much on the 3ds last year. Now it's wii u time.
