Pushing back Star Fox Zero is going to kill the Wii U.
Boo hoo, stop crying. If it helps the game, then let them work on it. You'll live.
"There is a positive side to the inevitable death of Nintendo’s latest flop, and that is the fact that the company won’t have a choice but to go in a different direction for the next console system. Nintendo has run out “get-out-of-jail-free cards.” They’re at a crossroads. On one side, the company can continue to remain a self-contained infrastructure and suffer the consequences of not adapting to today’s technology and the ever-changing platform of video games. On the other, Nintendo can finally wake up and stop trying to be the smartest person in the room and grab hold of it’s destiny." Ouch. Pretty harsh, but also very true. Nintendo really can't afford to continue down the path they have been pursuing; they need to stop with the gimmicks, and just focus on solid hardware that can handle games for years to come. The Wii U wasn't able to compete, hopefully the NX will be a much more feature-rich, solid console.
Err..the author missed quite a few Wii U titles coming out through the end of this year. Story quality? WTF? Like this website? No 😃
No it isn't! then it'll be a buggy mess, then the complaining starts rolling in how buggy the game is and need to be fixed. So it's a good thing to delay it to work on it more to make sure there is no issues with it. Jesus some ppl are really impatient these days!
Agreed. Also, I guarantee 99.9% of the moaners have a backlog of games as long as their arm. Yes, everybody want the newest toy asap, but if anything a delay should give us a breather and allow us to take stock of the many, many games we've accumulated. Gutted about the delay, but, be it Steam, WiiU or PS4 games in which I've barely scratched the surface, I'll get along fine.
Best bit about the Wii U fail is it will hopefully go same route as the wii. In a few years you will be able to get the console plus a stack of games for a tenner on Gumtree!
Yeah, I already can get Wii-u games used really cheap. Still not buying a Wii-u yet, in a few months will cost me next to nothing to own one with a ton of games.
I think Mario maker has some legs Mario kart defo does and smash bros is epic more than enough to keep me busy and I've not even started Pikmin 3, Lego City undercover, Splatoon and Mario 3D world plenty of games to get through all epics. Earthbound as well can't wait. New star fox would be great but not end of the world, New F-Zero from Nintendo/Sega would be pretty cool tho ;)
Just taking a look at Nintendo's pathetic eshop, lack thereof virtual console and the lack of a real lineup this holiday, wouldn't really be surprised if they drop out the console race and focus solely on mobile
Nope, just checked and my wii U is still alive and well.
Your game pads died tho yeah? ;) don't even use mine for a week or so go to have a blast oh gamepad needs charging ;( haha 2 hours?! Still great little system shame Nintendo drip feed the virtual console but Wii u has plenty of virtual console games just wrong ones for wrong system 3DS has been forgotten about not a single SNES or GBA Game sort it out Nintendo.
I would say next year is starting to look great with 4 big games on Wii U. We got a new ZELDA, FireEmblemXShinMegamiTensei, StarFox and Pokken Fighter. I'm sure there will be a couple more that Nintendo will reveal soon. Like maybe Pikmin 4.
It been doomed from the start. I said it'd sell less than Gamecube and looks like it will since NX is coming next year. 1st Nintendo console to not reach 20m is shocking. I hope NX does better because if it don't Nintendo will have to go like Sega.
It's not shocking - unless you are a suit. From an owner's/gamers perspective, a success. When did this become a numbers game? You can mark my words...Microsoft will exit the dedicated videogames industry before Nintendo.
Another day, another anti Wii U article from cheatcc, nothing to see here.
There's no smoke without fire...
This article is ridiculous......Oh cheat? Makes sense
Such negativity...or it could mean another sign that next year is going to be a great year. Personally, I'm glad Star Foxed got pushed because with everything else I need to buy this year SF was sadly had to be put on the wait/christmas list. Now it can be purchased easily. Here's a tip I learned in life. Leave the teen angst in high school, nobody cares or wants to hear about whatever delusion you want to spin about something you hate. Have an open mind or stick to what you like but there is no need to spread hate or misinformation. Mario Maker came out and it's getting praise and great reception....but you won't admit that. Fatal Frame is coming out later this year and that is going to be AMAZING....yet still not mentioned, same with Xenoblade. So one game gets pushed back still great games coming.
There was a lot of negative buzz about Star Fox Zero from visuals to lack of enemies and even the controls. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Nintendo is reacting to that and pulling veteran developers to rework portions of the game. Nintendo as of late has been very reactive to fan feedback.
Since when did Morbo of Channel √2 start caring about video games?
Almost everyone thinks that tomorrow is promised to them but it's not and you could die at any moment,so for those who think they have all the time in the world are dumb when they spit out words like calm down it's not the end of the world does not put into account that tomorrow is not promised to us,and for nintendo bad call,no 3rd party support and in house kiddy games to keep them afloat.Mario is ok but the company must grow up with it's fanbase and make console that would appeal to gamers and dev,so when a delay such as this 1 you could count on 3rd party support to fill the void.Bad move NINTENDO.
I don't understand. You have both PS4 and XB1 to appeal to the self-proclaimed 'gamers', but you want the exact same games coming from Nintendo itself!? I bought both PS4 and WiiU this gen. It is the WiiU I have amased more time playing and built up a far more entertaining and larger collection of titles. The day Nintendo starts listening to 'fans' such as yourself is the day I tune out. It baffles me. Why do all the Nintendo trolls focus so much energy on a console and games they claim to hate?
Maybe they are paid to do just that.
I think that would actually be a good thing, star fox is a pretty popular 1st party title. This game was an injustice to many fans who love star fox. So if a delay can fix the game and it needs a lot of fixing all around, then I could care less. There are plenty of replayable WIIU games to hold of this inevitable delay of the NX.To my point of why I believe it will be pushed to the WiiU, There was a leak of a Nintendo patent of a controller, some speculate it could be the NX controller and yes it also has a screen, and scrollable trigger buttons. Also I doubt it's an updated WiiU controller as the new CEO is pretty open in saying the WiiU failed, so doubt they would still push anything new for the wiiU especially hardware. Or could also be a new portable system.
This 'fail' bollocks must end. Shenmue was considered a 'fail', as was Okami. Thing is, neither were.
Your the commercial failures are normally high up my list tho they may not sell Apples millions but have the quality that Nintendo consistently produces.
For me, Nintendo is like an ex I used spend a lot of time with but things changed and we went our separate ways. I wonder how Link and Mario are doing? Maybe one day she'll walk through the door with a nice make over. Until then she's still doing the "creative thing" that I'm just not in to.
wii u meh
... oh wow. ANOTHER one of these articles.
Just think how much more sad Fall-Winter would have been without the artificial delay of Yoshi Yarn too.
We still doing this Wii U is doomed thing? How original of you.
