I've been pretty disappointed with the retro selection myself. While Earthworm Jim and Boogerman bring very special smiles to my face, the fact that some of my favorite Nintendo games are not coming brings a tear to my eye.

Basically. Every story this gen has to be rediculously dramatic and bold.

I see Super Mario All-Stars in the top left corner of the pic. That is not on the VC, correct?

It is just like the rest of Nintendo. A fad. I hardly use my Wii anymore. I'll get a big game, then play for a week and leave it to collect dust. Like the VC, very cool at first, bought all the classics, then it just died out.

The Wii is being left to collect dust in my house. I'd much rather go outside and play.

that's why is consistently outsells the other home consoles, right?

A Fad.. because Nintendo has nothing left to offer, nothing else up their sleaves. We have already seen all they have and appart from the rare Mario game their is nothing that keeps the consumer a Nintendo only gamer. Nintendo has no exclusive titles that appeal to the adult gamers only Wii owners with children keep buying titles for their kids and little if any games for themselves.
Lately Nintendo are even making themselves look bad denying consumers any type of larger storage, as the consumers simply want to buy more VC and Wiiware titles, even calling those people geeks.., besides did we ever ask for Wiiware games? If anything people desire demo's not even more shovelware titles. Nintendo have greatly reduced the release of Virtual console titles along with well known classics making the Wii less interesting and this combined with no larger storage medium just looses Nintendo more profits that they would of otherwise had.
