IGN- When you're running a relay race, you don't slow down when you're about to hand off the baton. You sprint through, and make sure the momentum you've built up through your leg of the race remains relentless. Rest later - finish the race strong.
Unfortunately for Nintendo fans around the world, that hasn't really been the case with Wii. Some years during the system's lifespan have been very strong, and the motion-based console has received some incredible titles - not to mention phenomenal mainstream success. But just like the GameCube and Nintendo 64, Nintendo hasn't been able to translate its console's strengths into an effective transition to what comes next.
In other words, 2012 is looking a bit rough in terms of new releases, with the possibility of massively delayed imports being the last few moments of hope for the console.
