"Nintendo hasn’t had it good for the last few years. With the Wii U underperforming for most of its life, Amiibos being scalped for exorbitant prices, a dubious mobile games plan, and the company’s overall inability to get with the times, things have not been great at the house that Mario built.

Other gaming topics include: No Sony conference at Gamescom, no Sega booth at E3, Batman: Arkham Knight DLC, and Oculus Rift release date."
