Wii U Daily: "We take a look at Iwata's track record as president of Nintendo to determine whether Nintendo is moving in the right direction."
It seems they are always on the rebound from something, they never give up after being written off time and time again. Nintendo are survivors and they will always be a major presence in the gaming industry due to the strong IPs they own.
They just took a big dip on the last sales update.
if Nintendo ever did a rebound, it would be like pudgy on a dirty floor. keep in mind, this dirty floor is full of rusty nails....
They sure have had my gaming money these past few weeks. Go Ninty! :)
Ask again in six months.
The WiiU and Xbox one. In my honest opinion, they're the only true next Gen consoles. I use to laugh at the WiiU until a friend got one and explained how it was everything that Xbox is missing. I get the perfect fix with them. Halo and Nintendo first parties. Everything else is icing on the cake. Witcher 3 as well. Take my fuckin money Sunset OD Madden 15. (protesting this years madden so I'm not buying it even though I need a football game) Zelda Mario Dead Rising Crackdown Phantom Dust (weary of this one, but color me impressed) There's so many games I haven't listed that deserves to be there.. who's got more to add? Forza Horizon 2 Mario kart Smash bros Xbox live indies
They'll be fine as long as the focus more on getting good exclusives. Gimped multiplats won't raise the Wii U's sales or reputation; only well-built exclusives from all corners of the third party industry and indie industry, big and small games, can do that.
Nintendo could get stronger if Sony continues to rely mostly on indie development to support their console. Uncharted and The Order 1886 aren't coming out probably until late 2015, and other than that, the only other somewhat medium sized exclusives they have coming out before then are LBP3 and Driveclub. I've been super critical of Nintendo over the past 2 years, but at least they give their fans what they want, which is all of their best exclusive games. Even Microsoft coming out with the Master Chief Collection this year is huge. Titanfall being an Xbox Exclusive also really adds some excitement to the Xbone. Currently everything that Sony does feels mediocre. Uncharted probably will have extremely high production values and will most likely be loved by the fans, but The Order 1886 is still an unknown at this point, despite some nice looking footage at E3. I'm actually tempted to buy a WiiU, despite the fact that I haven't bought a Nintendo product in many years.
That's kinda BS really. Sony has plenty coming in both 2014 and 2015 that isn't from small indie devs. And the major indie stuff on PS4 going into 2015 is more what you would call "medium sized": No Man's Sky, Shadow of the Beast, RiME, ABZU, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, SOMA... Still, if you've been gaming on PC long enough it's easy to discover that indie development vastly outweighs AAA. All Sony is doing with their platforms is allowing creativity to strive in a similar way that a PC platform does. Catch up with The Order: 1886. It's coming in February 2015. Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank redux are "early 2015" with nothing coming for Xbox One until the second half of 2015. I also wouldn't pretend that the hype and excitement for Titanfall is still alive. LBP3 and DriveClub are not "medium sized" exclusives, they look great and have received fantastic feedback. People asked for The Last of Us: Remastered and they got it. People asked for PlanetSide 2 and they got it. They asked for H1Z1 and EverQuest Next and they will get them. Pay attention and see how Sony's first parties take roughly 2 years to get the momentum rolling to be an unstoppable beast of unique and compelling content.
IMO One of the things that save Iwata is Nintendo's "Family" like atmosphere- -This atmosphere that has been documented by many 3rd Parties and from interviews with lower ranking developers at Nintendo- If he is the lowest rated CEO in Japan (as the Article Suggests), then they are far more willing to put-up with his dry spell. It can also be the success of the 3DS and the past, unprecedented, success of the Wii. That said... I like Iwata, and Iwata gets my vote.
still waiting to see some or more wiiu commercials. Mario kart... should show someone walks into a early 90s type room and pushing the super nes MK in and they show you the game and it fuses into the next MK,and the next and so on until it hits the HD version. "MK! it's back and only for WiiU" show a bundle discount, in stores now. 249.99 Premium Kart Bundle. included Super Smash Brothers Demo.( Digital download 5 days) tell me that wouldn't sell
Xenoblade X for me. I so much need this game. Bayonetta and Hyrule Warriors do look cool too.
