aside from the Wii's introduction of a motion control scheme, I am doubting Nintendo's ability to go forward in innovation in software. the hardware innovation has been proven many times.

all that said, I await the HD Zelda that is the dream of many, before I pass supreme judgement.

Does this mean new IPs?


Don't get me wrong, I love Mario and Zelda and almost everything Nintendo makes when it comes to first party games (unless it's Wii Music, that stupid piece of crap), but something fresh is certainly welcome. Can't wait to see what's going to come, and can't wait for more info that will most likely appear at TGS.

wii was ideal for new types of games, and what did miyamoto give us? shit like wii play and wii music.

so when he talks about new types of games for wiiu, you know he is talking about some shitty gimmicky games that will involve those pathetic mii characters.

you know that 'mii chase' game at e3 this year? its obviously games like that.

miyamoto has lost his appeal to me this gen. he needs to stop pissing around with gimmicky ideas and get back to making traditional games.

if i would have known the concept of wii would have basically boiled down to wii play and all that shit, i probably wouldn't have bought a wii. most of the best wii games rely little on motion control.

so this wiiu has a lot to prove. it will most likely turn out to not be taken advantage of in the ways we all might imagine... just like wii.

if i'm immature then you are totally deluded. you are the one always talking about the wii being as powerful as a ps3 only with lower resolution.

im talking about facts and that makes me immature? but there you go again with your baseless tech specs comparisons.

and you don't even use paragraphs, commas or full stops.

so you grow up!
