Nintendo Direct Recap
So basically... We missed nothing
Basically. The only good things announced were Little Mac and a release date for Mario Kart.
Did you turn it off after 2 minutes or something?
I missed Dragon Quest VII 3D. And Dragon Quest X. And Dragon Quest XI. I missed them, terribly.
Wasn't that exciting until the end. I wish they would focus more on Wii U. What they showed today will not improve sales.
I don't think so. They could have focused more on indie titles coming to Wii U or at least release WINDOWS for some of these games.
Well they did gove release windows.......very, very.....very vague ones.
Dravidian: For Wii U games? Not really. 3DS, yes. They could have given windows for Bayonetta 2, X, and Smash Bros.
This direct was used to show all of Nintendo's shovelware titles and X
NIntendo I hope you blow me away by E3 with some big new game.
I hope they actually show up this time unlike last year which totally ruined them and the console ;)
Well they will probably just due a stupid Nintendo Direct which I still think is a stupid move
So disappointing. All the 3ds titles shown should have been made for the Wii U. Then maybe the Wii U would have a shot at getting a bigger base.
Well that was underwhelming
I feel the disconnect between myself and Nintendo growing. Cant they just hype the crap out of their games? Twitter, or a flash mob, anything would make more sense than these. These meager details shouldnt trickle out of the company, they should be loud and proud. Waiting for the next Nintendo Direct or E3 is ridiculous. What is the point of all the secrecy Nintendo?!
They don't get it lol. They don't understand that content no longer woos the people anymore. It's pure hype and keeping your name in people's mouths that gets gamers excited for your products. It sucks, but it's the mere truth.
Thats the reality of living in a world with rampant social media I guess. Hype does carry weight. And I hope to Gawd Ninty gets it. At least in NA at least.
nintendo needs to step up or the wii is going to continue to crash a burn. as long as they're doing stuff like devoting first-party dev time to garbage like steeldiver 2 (for the 3DS no less), they're going to continue to fail.
Nintendo just does not care about the Wii u, nor the people who own them. They can t even give release windows for most of their games- we are having a 2nd huge game drought this year and they say things like "in the future" or "coming months" which means absolutely nothing Iwata, Reggie and co have promised more than once we would not have these droughts again - Iwata said we would have consistent appealing software in the 2nd half of 2013, then it became holiday 2013 now it's "in the future". They can t even tell us what year X is coimg even though this direct was supposed to be about games for this spring Also the May 30 date for Mario Kart is suspicious to me- Why May 30? Why not may 1 or may 15? I think they will push it Not feeling good about my Wii u investment and def could not recommend someone else buy a Wii u at this time Iwata is a used car salesman
Hopefully they listen more down the line and get better. One thing Nintendo doesn't know HOW to do is sell hype. They are still very modest and Japanese, no offense lol. In the west we like hype and explosions, Nintendo keeps it tame and level. We over here don't like that lol. Being secretive is ok, but being TOO secretive can hurt Nintendo, which up until yesterday was the case. Notice how positive Nintendo news was yesterday because people had something to look forward to. Now it's about to go downhill AGAIN, because Nintendo is still holding out on info and not giving people a reason to be excited. Or hype.
Nintendo releases games on their time. The quality of nintendo games shows that they won't rush a product to meet a deadline if its not 100%. The lack of 3rd party support to fill in the time between ninty titles doesn't help. However I agree that wiiUs future looks dim compared to competition. And as many have said it wouldn't hurt nintendo to hype up some stuff.
Nothing missed :/
Lame. As a day one wii u adopter, I have given N the benefit of the doubt thus far, but I am now extremely concerned. Given all the bad press lately, they needed to bring their A game and the only really new anouncement was game boy advance games on the wii u ... *facepalm*. Its Valentines day not April fools.
no wonder the wiiu is dead
