rustyshell: With Wii U turning one this week, here’s a look at the biggest disappointments in the machine’s first year.
Lol who does that? Celebrates a birthday by recapping on the biggest disappointments? Haha, damn.
i wanted to say the same thing why would you wanna do that for the 9999th time
"And then Jack crapped in his pants in front of the entire class! Hahaha needless to say, his girlfriend dumped him and he got kicked out of school." .....This birthday isn't as happy as you guys claimed it was going to be.
best comment on N4G to date. HAHA.
Lol excellent comment.
who approves this fucking shit? Mario Bros U sold well enough with 'sub par visuals'; the o.s. loading times were never a huge issue for early adopters (drought of games was our biggest gripe); rayman legends delay was a huge mistake by UBISOFT, not nintendo. A lot of wii u owners such as myself said screw ubi, and bought the excellent Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 instead. And as for Rayman Legends being undeniably a great game with wonderful vibrant graphics, well Nintendo is taking them back to school with game of the year contender Super Mario 3d World. Let me guess whats gonna be in your '10 things wii U got right': "By having an underpowered console, they helped Sony and Ms...." Utter tripe article. Troll like a man, not a weasel.
Seems a pretty fair assertion to me.
LOL. The Wii U is about to get one of the best games this year and people still think the Wii U is s***
Great game, the console itself is still pretty crap.
Nintendo, please fire iwata.
He is a great guy, but I agree! It seems like even though he is optimistic, he is not doing Nintendo any good. Also, Reggie is not as good as he seems to be. The marketing for the Wii U has been horrible, and he is the guy approving everything. Nintendo really needs a fresh start with their executives and bring people that care about the games, but also about having great, cutting-edge technology.
PLAY THE GAME! (reference to his E3 2013 presentation if you missed it, it's pretty priceless)
The Wii U still doesnt quite have enough games for me to want one yet. Super Mario 3d World looks awesome, but personally Im still waiting for Mario kart 8 and a new Zelda game. At least MK8 will be a game that I'll keep coming back to for online.
this title made me LOL.
Once X comes out it will be game over. Plus a new Zelda or a StarFox and the Nintendo and their WiiU will be right back in the contender spot. It's very easy to count the WiiU out but now that we have the full swing of the new gen coming and we won't see just ports of 360/ps3 games, you'll start to see the WiiU shine.
Do you mean once X is out they are gonna call it a day and stop making WiiU?...cause that's not the worst idea I've heard.
LOL! I can't believe you just said WiiU will shine as PS3/360 die out... You can't be serious! If you mean the production quality of WiiU titles is impaired by current gen hardware, it's really hard to go by as WiiU exclusives don't look much better than those. If you mean the support for WiiU will rise... Who are we kidding? PS3/360 games being so easy to port to similarly powered WiiU is the reason you still see the little third party support you see, as devs move on to higher assets on PS4 and XB1 chances are the third party support will shrink even further if not almost completelly. So which is it? Not that it matters, one way or another you just can't be right... Nintendo can't simply count on PS3 and Xbox 360 fading away for them to be successful. They need to change direction, grab that third party support anyway they can, enhance marketing and start to realize mature audience that are NOT their 80's/90's follwing buy consoles too. You know, get relevant into hardcore gaming again. Those are the people driving the number this time, last gen curious soccer moms and grandpas are long gone into Tablet-land now and Ninty can't count on them. Oh, and for god's sake, it wouldn't kill Mario if they try a new IP that doesn't look like something my little niece would love to play on 3DS every once in a while.
I can't believe it's been a year already.
This can be confirmed by the layers of dust.
As a newely ps4 owner if i had to choose to buy another console it would be wii-u over the crap box one. Wii-u > X-bone
No one asked what you would choose and I doubt anyone cares. Both systems have their pros and cons.
The disappointments came in the first half of the year with the exception of paunch day and the brilliant lego city undercver. But since August the quality of titles avaiable has been incredible. Maybe they arent everyones cup of tea but they are certainly mine as I am a firm believer in the philosopy that games should be fun and arent all about how many headshots you can get.
