EDGE: "2013 could be the year in which the videogame landscape is utterly transformed, more quickly and more viciously than anyone could have forecast. When Nintendo finally delivers the games its fanbase wants, will they still be interested?"
Answering the last question, "I will be." Lulls in games mean very little to old school gamers. This is nothing compared to the N64/Gamecube days.
Sucks the old Rare is no longer with Nintendo, i would love to see Conkers Bad Fur Day 2 on Wii U.
we were lucky in those days though that a few REALLY GOOD games were there to hold us over. We didn't just play Mario Kart 7, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Diddy Kong Racing, Super Smash Brothers, Super Mario 64, Wave Race, Mario Golf, Mario Party 1,2,3........... We played the crap out of them over and over and over again until we invented our own game types within the games themselves. We created out own fun. It's hard to do that now with how corporate everything has gotten. Companies want to tell us how to play there game and they want us to play it exactly like they want. They've taken away the exploration and creative freedom that comes from just playing a game to relax and have fun.
The gaming journalism community really seems to have a special hate for Nintendo. No matter what they do, they always find someway to make something bad out of it.
Didn't you know? Nintendo is forever damned if they do and damned if they don't. there's no inbetween...:/
"It can promise and tease all it wants, but Nintendo’s fiercely loyal fanbase is growing uneasy. Not to mention impatient." Not really, I think gamers would prefer Nintendo to take their time and make sure the games are of high quality as opposed to something rushed and full of bugs.
Nintendo did a great job imo
The Final List of the 2013 Multiplats that are (-NOT-) coming to the Wii U ULTIMATE MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3, Watch Dogs, METAL GEAR SOLID: Ground Zeroes, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Killer Is Dead, Crysis 3, Splinter Cell Black List, Metro Last Light, Hitman Absolution, Anarchy Reigns, Dead Space 3, Lost Planet 3, Metal Gear Rising Revengance, DMC, PREY 2, GTA 5, Street Fighter X Tekken, BioShock Infinite, Dead Island Riptide, Fuse, Remember Me and Tomb Raider (-Tales of Xillia & Ni No Kuni-) are the Most Wanted PS3 Exclsuives by Wii U Owners. GOT MILK?
You should at least try to compare similar things. A six year vs. a three months console. Here, I give you the PS3 launch games, so you can see how "doomed" was the console at the moment: Blazing Angels: Squadrons of WWII Call of Duty 3 Genji: Days of the Blade Madden NFL 07 EA Sports Marvel: Ultimate Alliance Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire NBA 2K7 Resistance: Fall of Man Ridge Racer 7 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 Tony Hawk's Project 8
It's funny how people forget things like this. Every console goes through this and they will most likely forever will.
I believe most of those if not all have been demanded for a via port too. Also why would games tht have been worked on for 2+ years be just willy Nilly thrown over to the wiiu when most devs had the system for at most a year? Think buddy. Not to mention wiiu has 5+ years of its life remaining to build a great library, how many dose the ps360 have before next gen for them comes? A year maybe two before people stop caring. Stop trying to troll a two month old system when it had a better launch line up than the wii, ps3 and 360.
You do know without these key 2013 Multiplats none of the Hardcore Gamers that own a "ps360" will give 3 shits about spending $350+ on a Wii U. You are clearly lying to yourself by saying the Wii U does not need help from the 3rd Party that are making the Large List of 2013 Multiplats that are NOT coming to the Wii U below. ULTIMATE MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3, Watch Dogs, METAL GEAR SOLID: Ground Zeroes, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Killer Is Dead, Crysis 3, Splinter Cell Black List, Metro Last Light, Hitman Absolution, Anarchy Reigns, Dead Space 3, Lost Planet 3, Metal Gear Rising Revengance, DMC, PREY 2, GTA 5, Street Fighter X Tekken, BioShock Infinite, Dead Island Riptide, Fuse, Remember Me and Tomb Raider
@pyro I didn't say anything about the wiiu not needing maltiplats. However I think you expecting games with 2+ year dev time on them to just be thrown over to the wiiu is an idiotic expectation. Start new maltiplat projects with them in mind not make shotty ports. These games aren't the last multiplatform games being made ever again so you can stop pretending like they are the end all be all of the gaming world. Why can't you have patience to see where the system goes in 5 years instead of trolling after 2 months. Look at the ps3 launch. 600 bucks and no games with one or two exceptions. Look where it is now, it finally gained the ground it lost at launch.
People just hate Nintendo without looking back. Does anyone here remember when the PS3 was "doomed"? There were a big post-launch window when the only good games avaliable were Resistance... and Lair. And it was a $600 console, so people were really angry. Same happened with the 3DS. Even the Wii has a great library of exclusive games, so, IMHO, Nintendo have never lost the touch. We're just blinded by "the hardcore" and "the power".
Yes, it did, partially ...the new Monolith Soft title looks promising, but I know how it will end, in the end we will have 2-3 good third party games or games which are not zelda or mario and for the rest we will have more of the same, which is not really a bad thing, but you have to look at the price of the Wii U (currently = 300-350 dollars), which is a little bit too expensive for the current line-up of Wii U titles.
Nintendo isnt "damned if we do, damned if we dont" thats complete bs and alot of you guys give Nintendo free passes and scapegoats. If they would have mentioned a majority of exclusive ips instead of rehashes and sequels than i doubt very much ppl would have been criticizing them. I for one would have jumped on the Wiiu train. Not only do they mention mostly the same old same old that was expected but those games arent coming out till possibly in the middle of next year.
Why don't people just wait until Nintendo does their next Direct outlining 3rd party support. Which Iwata mentioned would be coming very soon! Then you guys can bash them or not based on what comes out of that session. Because all of this nonsense could be for nothing, if Nintendo ends up producing results that they have in fact secured the big 2013 games... So why is everyone so impatient for?
NARUTO SHIPPUDEN Ultimate Ninja STORM 3, ULTIMATE MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3, Watch Dogs, METAL GEAR SOLID: Ground Zeroes, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Elder Scrolls Skyrim, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Killer Is Dead, Crysis 3, Splinter Cell Black List, Metro Last Light, Hitman Absolution, Anarchy Reigns, Dead Space 3, Lost Planet 3, Metal Gear Rising Revengance, DMC, PREY 2, GTA 5, Street Fighter X Tekken, BioShock Infinite, Dead Island Riptide, Fuse, Remember Me and Tomb Raider (-Tales of Xillia & Ni No Kuni-) are the Most Wanted PS3 Exclsuives by Wii U Owners.
No, none of them is really good, most of them are rather overrated. I want The Last Guardian for the Playstation 3, but where is The Last Guardian ...?
I am still waiting for a price cut of the Wii U, not jumping in the lavic rapture too soon. Have bought the 3DS (very pleased with if so far, waiting for monster hunter 3 ultimate and 4 and of course pokemon x/y), at least they have some longevity.

Its tiresome hearing people say that Nintendo does nothing but Mario, Zelda & Pokemon. So as you can see from this list, I have removed any title with those characters in them. Just to prove that yes Nintendo makes games outside of what you guys assume to be rehashes. It would be wrong of me to think that Sony only does Killzone, God of War and Uncharted... I acknowledge the other games that they make and its a failed attempt to say that Nintendo does nothing outside of their main franchises. Because this list proves otherwise.)
