Nintendo loses battle for WiiU.com domain ownership

Nintendo failed to take over the WIiU.com domain name.

Wii U Logo
When Nintendo revealed the Wii U, they filed a bunch of trademarks around the world, as it’s expected. When they got those trademarks approved, they expected it would be easy to get the WiiU.com domain name. But apparently, it wasn’t that easy.

Nintendo filed a “cybersquatting” dispute with World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO), where they wanted to take over the domain from the current owner. However, the domain was registered long before the Wii U was revealed — in fact, long before the original Wii was revealed.

Now WIPO has ruled against Nintendo, saying the original WiiU.com owner can keep the domain.

To make matters even more interesting, the domain was actually on sale right before Nintendo filed the complaint. They could have simply bought the domain, which would have probably been cheaper than paying all those lawyers to try and take it by force.

  • Morits Lian

    WiiU.com is still kinda advertising for Nintendo, so I have no complaints.
    All except “University for Nursing”, which is kinda odd

    • bizzy gie

      Gotta getcho bachelor degree and learn about computer science.

  • Stuart Thomas

    Doh! Who cares, just use wii.com I’d be typing that before wiiu.com anyway.

  • tooby77

    Pretty owned. Is wii2.com taken?

  • Newness

    It’s pretty dumb that the owner wouldn’t simply work something out with them though. People can be stupid

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      There’s two sides to every story. Maybe Nintendo wanted too much or was demanding they give it up, which is trying to take it by force. That was a horrible move and it backfired on them.

      • Newness

        Wanted too much? They want the site… Not sure what else you’re thinking they’d want? The current owners first born? The site owner is ridiculous, it’s a worthless site right now. They’re holding onto it for the sake of being a douche. I’d understand if it were a good site. Or had a point at least..

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Maybe if Iwata wasnt such a greedy liar they could have worked something out. No one wants to make business with him anymore after he clawed himself to the president chair even though he promised to resign if Wii U failed.

          • Newness

            Greedy liar?
            Wii U hasn’t failed yet. It hasn’t even been out for a year yet and with some solid games coming things should shape up. I’m also expecting they will do a price reduction a la 3DS. Worked very well for them in that case.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            He promised he would resign if Nintendo wouldnt reach 10M in a year. Now he says he doesnt remember saying such a thing. Grasping his greedy claws to power. Makes me sick.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I agree with the last statement, but I don’t know if he said he’d resign it didn’t reach 10 million. Do you have a source for that?

          • Newness

            I don’t recall him saying that. Proof?
            They do need change how things are handled with 3rd parties and also get more mature games in the works too. Get some teams together tha make games like Eternal Darkness or Conker for a grown up audience. But I do enjoy the hell out of some smash bros, animal crossing, Mario, Zelda and metroid.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If Nintendo at least published some mature content, then it might persuade hardcore gamers to come back.

          • Newness

            Absolutely.

            I feel like the are so many obvious uses for the gamepad that they aren’t tapping into. Imagine they make an action game along the lines of Mass Effect and add some strategy elemets with the gamepad. You control your character via the regular controls and on the touchscreen set up attack plans for your squad.

            It just seems they’re holding themselves back in some areas. Mature gaming being one. And I’m not just meaning violence, gore, bad language or nudity. I mean some adult substance.

            I’ll be buying the usual bread winners but I’d like to see them branch off and create some franchises to compete with Halo, uncharted, infamous, gears of war.. They have the creative ability to do so.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Also.

            Just send it to my email @ OfcourseIwasright,idiot@hotmail.com

            That was from Nintenward. I rest my case on this.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            As for your long comment, yes I agree that there are other uses for the gamepad, but so far, they haven’t been used much tbh.

          • http://MacroManJr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            I find it most ironic that most “mature” content is anything but.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Mature content just means that it has blood, gore, alcohol and bad language. Whether you think it’s mindless or dumb is another story and your opinion. While that’s true for any game rating, it’s a matter of preference.

          • http://MacroManJr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            I know what it means. I’m just saying, those aren’t necessarily “mature.” In fact, a sheer reliance on such (to the point that the game is pretty much nothing else but those elements) is anything but mature.

            Though, it’s not that I’m against “mature” games, necessarily. I would agree with your sentiment more if even half of the “mature” games out there weren’t anything more than a sheer gore-fest compilation of targeting people who think having nine ways to decapitate a guy counts as “innovative gameplay.”

            I wish more “mature” games would be like Metal Gear Solid series. It’s a series targeting older gamers that does include some of those “mature”-rated elements in its content, but it doesn’t rely on them solely. It focuses on excellent storytelling and carefully-crafted gameplay, to a level where few other “M”-rated games even care to touch.

            Of course, that’s not to call every “E” or “T” rated game a masterpiece (certainly not!), that most games in general won’t be mediocre, or to say that we should even play games based on mere ratings, but still, if there’s any rating of games that tends to have the most uninspired and non-progressing game designs in all gaming, it’s generally the “mature” games. Nintendo reinvents Zelda with every game. Meanwhile, Killzone 3 still looks, plays and feels like Killzone 1.

            I’d love for Nintendo to regain the hardcore gamers again (heck, I’m a core gamer myself–I can appreciate core games), but notice that back when Nintendo last owned core gaming (on SNES), most of the games weren’t M-rated. Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Secret of Mana, F-Zero, Super Castlevania IV, A Link to the Past, Contra III, Final Fantasy VI–it was solid gameplay that reigned. No one even cared about their ratings.

            Even the “mature” games among them had to rely on balanced solid mechanics. Then polygon-3D gaming came out, and generally, uninspired FPSes and hack-a-thons have been plaguing the core-gaming industry ever since. People mistake pushing the edge in ESRB ratings as pushing the edge in gaming.

            While I’d want more core games with Nintendo (desperately so), I wouldn’t want that same sea of “M”-rated mediocrity to flood Nintendo with core gaming in much the same way it does elsewhere. I’d hope developers would try to be more creative with their “mature” games with Nintendo. I’d want people to take core gaming back to its solid-gameplay roots, animated blood or not.

            But just inviting “mature games” in general–as they stand today–on Nintendo might ruin the last breath of fresh air in the industry. Though, if only Retro Studios and Intelligent Systems would step up more…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. It’s failing and he’s still here. If he stepped down and left the company or just went back to Hal Labs, I’d be all for it.

          • http://MacroManJr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            1) If you’re thinking about a greedy suit, you’re thinking of Steve Ballmer. Or, at least, you should be.

            2) Iwata didn’t “claw himself” to the president chair–he was a game developer who over the years got promoted to the top of their head of their corporate planning division, taking the position of president offered to him after the previous president retired. Because, you know, that’s what most companies do–they offer high positions of leadership roles to people with leadership experience in their company.

            3) Wii U hasn’t failed yet. It’s struggled, but then again, it’s hasn’t even been out nine months yet.

            4) I don’t recall any such promise from Iwata. You’re misquoting his “commitment” quote.

            5) You sound completely irrational in the way you make points. You probably shouldn’t go about doing them anymore. You just look like a troll here.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          The want the site, yes, but they were taking it by force instead of paying for it. If he paid for that domain name, he can do what he pleases with it even if it is “garbage.”

          That’s how the world works my friend.

          • Newness

            If I had a website like that I’d give the thing up. If it weren’t for your distaste for Nintendo I’d bet you sing another tune

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Why bet when I can just tell you straight out. I didn’t agree with Microsoft throwing their weight around either. If anything I’m not even getting a Xbox Done. So about that other tune again….I assume you want something from the Zelda library?

  • Guest

    Too bad it’s not named simply Wii2.com.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I know right?

  • http://wiiudaily.com/ Monomon

    Why he didn’t call it TheNextWii?

    • Nintedward

      WiiUltra . Such a bold name…

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        It has to have quite a killer lineup of games for it to even deserve that name. However, I agree partially as any name other than Wii U would have done it more justice.

        • Nintedward

          It has a killer line up of first party/exclusive games for sure , 3rd party not so much…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t care if people like Mario or other Nintendo games that I find bland and dull. You can disagree all you like, I’m all for free speech as I said before, but if you’re gonna call people idiots just cause they don’t see it “your” way, then that makes you the idiot.

            Relying on first party isn’t enough, it will only keep them afloat for only so long. Plus, what if those games don’t sell? What will they do then? That is the things that fanboys or even just fans in general don’t think about enough.

          • uPadWatcher

            Spoken like a “Pretendo”… a person who was once a fan of Nintendo, but not anymore.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Lmao. Do you even read? I don’t think you do. Even Nintendo fans and I’m talking about the ones who aren’t afraid to voice their opinions are the ones that I respect. The fact that you attacked me just for being a Nintendo fan and calling me “Pretendo” which is very cliche to say the least shows how people like you are so full of yourselves and can’t handle a little criticism.

            Grow up if you are an adult. If you’re a kid, nuff said.

          • uPadWatcher

            The only kid in here is you, Danny boy. You are a pretendo. Either support the company or don’t.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Hahaha. So I have to support a company to be here? That sounds like pre-school behavior to me. Sounds like you’re the kid U-Boy. If pretendo is all you have for an argument, you have no defense.

            One last thing, I don’t have to support a company just to post comments here. This comment section is for the public, not just for Nintendo fans. Deal with it.

          • Newness

            Hmm the simpleton continues.
            It is fairly pathetic that as someone who doesn’t like Nintendo you’re dedicating so much time to a Nintendo article.

            Some of your time would be better utilized tending to that unibrow.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Oh lord. You people need to learn to read. Just because someone criticizes Nintendo doesn’t mean they hate Nintendo. I still like Nintendo, but does that mean I can’t criticize their practices? I believe I’m entitled to my opinion. You’re pathetic for acting like no ones opinion matters and just what you think is the norm.

            Grow up and realize that people such as myself are within their rights to state what they like. It’s not my problem your type get upset over someones own opinion. Do I disrespect yours? I think not, yet you call me a troll. Who is trolling who? I thought so.

          • Newness

            Look all over these comments and its you talking trash to people. Calling them idiots for liking Nintendo, saying how nintendo a going down.. It’s no secret the Wii U is having struggles but its also no secret that haters have been hating Nintendo for years and predicting failure and they always bounce back.
            It’s not your opinions I have a problem with. It’s your lack of class when expressing them.
            You think the Wii u is trash.. Ok, but we aren’t stupid for liking it. We aren’t idiots for believing the games it has are solid. It’s our money and we’ll spend it how we wish.
            You should quit with the nonsense and brow out… Uh I mean bow out.

          • NkoSekirei

            agreed

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You have a one track mind to think I’m the only one calling people idiots. As I stated, when people call it me first, then it’s fair game. If you can’t handle fairness, then don’t respond to my posts.

            Also, I never called you stupid for liking it, you obviously made that up. I said time and time again that people can like their games, but that doesn’t mean I can’t criticize their games. People are entitled to free speech, so I don’t see what the problem is. Now, if we all wanna sit here and debate about this all day long then no thanks.

            It’s easy really, if we all want peace then we need to accept that not everyone here that criticizes Nintendo hates them. They have their reasons, why not start with why they don’t like their games or their practices rather than call them idiots? Food for thought.

            Before you go criticizing me for my opinion, you should know that people have the right to do it back. As long as people can keep from calling me an idiot, pretendo or any other name then I will refrain from it and there should really be no big problems. Don’tcha think?

          • Newness

            Nintendward stated his opinion and you attacked. People calling you names deserve a response but you’re all over being a dick. And a lot of your comments come off as insulting Nintendo fans and really seem like bait. You use some statements that are trashing Nintendo fans just in an indirect way. You came here lookin to piss people off and you know it.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You and other fans on this site can see it how you like. I know what is the truth and know what my true intentions were. If you think Nintenward did nothing, then you obviously missed a post. I see it just fine in the last article. Besides, if I was here to piss people off I would have done that long ago as I’ve been here for several months now. My outlook changed, nothing more. If that’s attacking people, then we have nothing further to discuss.

          • http://MacroManJr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            Just saying–there’s a far-cry difference between a “right” and a “freedom.” You’re here because you’re free to be here, not because of some right to be here.

            Though, I just wondering, if you don’t like their practices, why are you still following news about them? It’s not like they’re going to take notes from your critiques.

            It seems to me like only thing you could possibly be doing is seeking to start debates with others you well know will disagree.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Why are you following comments? See? There is no other reason than I can be here and I will continue to do so. Just because I talk about Nintendo in a negative light doesn’t mean I hate them. That’s what most here fail to see. They assume everyone is a troll just because they criticize. I criticize any company when they’re screwing up, even Microsoft with their bs Kinect.

          • http://MacroManJr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            After talking a bit more with you, I’ve retracted one of my comments above about you not having a life. I’ll man up to that one being overdone and unnecessary. I apologize for that one. Though, I do stand by this comment here.

            If you’ve ever seen me here before, you’d probably know that I’m no stranger to criticism towards Nintendo myself–in fact, I feel that the people who love them the most are going to be critical towards their moments of not living up to what strong position they know Nintendo can be. After this last E3 2013, I was visibly upset about a lot of things (like the no-show for Zelda Wii U).

            But the thing about me is that I’m don’t just come here merely to leave negative criticism. If anything, what I try to do is make a point addressing the gamers that may contribute to a standing issue. Like when some people kept insisting the mediocre “Nintendo Land” was a strong point at Nintendo’s E3 2011. I wanted to leave my points behind in saying, “No, it truly wasn’t. Don’t make Nintendo rest on this as their laurels.”

            On that note, I do try to leave with making it emphatically clear that I don’t actually hate Nintendo and that I do know they can still turn things around. They have before and they can again. I, like yourself apparently, do wish they’d play their cards better–but I make it clear that I don’t dislike them.

            If I weren’t mistaken, I wouldn’t have known you actually liked Nintendo, given by the bulk of your negative statements…and only negative statements. I see that here that you’re doing it now, but you don’t particularly make it clear much elsewhere that you do still like them. You just sound like one of the many people who do just visit the site just to bash Nintendo.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t just leave negativity. If you pay attention to my previous posts, there is positive comments within those negatives. Most people on here just see one negative words and they just jump on it like it’s a goomba.

            Apology accepted. No hard feelings here.

            You are all over the comments in here calling people names for disagreeing with you.

            Yawns…..that bored me, nice try I suppose. Anyways, you obviously don’t see them calling me names I guess, or you don’t see it as wrong that they do so. Only time I do is when they throw at me first.

            If you’re gonna say the usual comments that I’ve heard about this already then there’s nothing to discuss.

          • Michael Ocampo

            actually you started acting kinda mean when Nintedward was only posting his opinions. I’m not looking to start an another argument I’m just trying to put a stop to this one.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I only insulted him when he called me an idiot for not agreeing with his comments. I have no problem with him beyond that. As long as he doesn’t call me an idiot or other such comments, there will be no fights at all. I never come here to fight, only to discuss things like adults. However, there’s plenty here that apparently can’t do that.

            I’m aware of the old saying, but even old sayings don’t always hold up too well. Sometimes you have to do what you feel is right and unfortunately, people get upset over it. Not my problem if people can’t handle it. Disagree with me if you like, but is it really necessary to start name calling? Course not, but it’s what they most relate to.

            Ah so good, I want to follow you, or friend you, or whatever its called on this website.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Usually following I think. Would be nice to add you as a friend but they don’t do that. I would give out an email to some people, but on these sites, it’s guaranteed to that people might send hate mail. If you ever wanna talk off this site, contact me on facebook if you use it. At the very least, you can follow if you wish. I’m usually around this site at different hours.

            Thank you for understanding me. If most people understood more people on this site rather than call them a troll, this site would have a more pleasant atmosphere.

          • 210stuna

            It’s a pity there’s not a “Message” option or something for this site. We can’t even post on other people’s profile.

            Well I did what I can do at the moment, and I look forward to reading your future posts on any Nintendo topics. I’ll have to shovel through some replies though, because like you stated, it’s mostly arbitrary, double sided, hypocritical nonsense.

            Like I said before though, I’m glad to know there are still some quality posters on here who do things the right logical, and most civilized way.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            People on here claim that I name call. That only happens when people throw it at me first. Of course the diehard fanboys on this site will defend their own and their Nintendo fandom as if Nintendo will toss them a treat.

            Thank you again, and yeah, there are some people here who are logical and can be reasoned with. Some more harsh but can still be reasoned with if you talk to them rather than call them names all the time, and some more calm.

          • 210stuna

            I have a bad feeling they wont sell. I dont think it will sell great untill next year if it even does sell great. The only 3 games I want are the Xeno game, Mario Kart, and Zelda U. And I promised myself I wont buy another Zelda if Nintendo dont go over the top with production, High quality graphics, Gameplay, and superior voice acting.

            Seeing as no one is really agreeing with you, your opinion apparently has 0. Mine has plenty seeing as you commented, which means my opinion had value, you only find it negative, which doesn’t surprise me. People like you seem to think that it’s wrong to have one different from your own. Grow up.

            I comment when people comment back, that simple. I see right through you. You’re one those people who go around calling people names and think that you’ve won the internet. Sucking up to Nintendo doesn’t give you any rewards. I at least bring criticism to any gaming company. Go back to your hole and a learn to type properly at least. That’s a big sign that you’re a troll or just lack education.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            so his cock tastes good?

          • greengecko007

            One of the developers for the Zelda series, probably Anouma, once stated that he didn’t want Link to have voice acting because he didn’t want him to sound like any particular person, since he is the “Link” between the players and the game. He then stated that having voice acting for all the in game characters except for Link would be weird because it would only amplify that Link is mute.

            And I think that is the most bullshit answer I’ve ever heard from a developer. The Elder Scrolls is a widely popular and massively successful series, and is also an example of a great game that has voice acting for everyone except the playable character. As much as I love Zelda, it kills me to know that the developers are so adamant against voice acting. They are willing to make annoying grunts and other sound effects for characters, but don’t want to take the time to add something that would greatly deepen the experience.

            You can act like Nintendo is innovative, but this is just another case of Nintendo being lazy and stuck in the past.

          • DragonSilths

            Nintendo is lazy cause they dont want to put voice acting in Zelda? You realize the people who want voice acting in Zelda are the MINORITY, very few. Yet Skyrim a complete shit game in my book made by bathesda who CANT PROGRAM WORTH A DAMN releases a game they know are filled with bugs and glitches but they think ehh we can patch those later. THAT MY FRIEND IS LAZY.

          • greengecko007

            So you’ve polled every Zelda fan on the subject of in game voice acting? If not, don’t state that my opinion is in the minority like it’s a fact.

            Skyrim is full of glitches, but so are a lot of large sized games. There are so many calculations in the game that somebody with a knowledge of how the game works can exploit it. These glitches are all fairly minor, and like you said, they are still getting patched almost 2 years later.

            Have you played Skyward Sword? How about those glitches, especially the game breaking quest for the Song of the Hero? Kind of lame that players can’t download the fix for the game anymore. Why bother fake patching the game if you were only going to let people download it for a limited time?

          • DragonSilths

            I went through Skyward Sword without a single glitch…now ZombiU though…that’s another story lol.

          • oontz

            Bethesda can’t program worth a damn?? Ha ha ha

          • DragonSilths

            Brink, Friendly AI’s were USELESS walking into the fight without shooting and just dieing, walking into walls and bumping around them.
            Skyrim, do I really need to say much? And the award for MOST GLITCHES IN A GAME AT LAUNCH GOES TO!!! Bethesda and Skyrim!!!
            Not actually sure whatelse they made, but regardless they haven’t made a game that is glitch free. Even devs from Retro Studios, Shin En, Namco and Capcom have commented on the “Poor” programming standard at Bethesda.

          • Lord Carlisle

            Actually, I think the ratio of people for and against voice acting in Zelda is very close. I for one, want it, just not from Link.

          • oontz

            No voice acting? This is 2013. Why would you accept any less?

          • DragonSilths

            What the fuck does the year have to do with anything? I honestly would rather be still getting 8Bit and 16Bit games from the NES and SNES today that would benefit from better memory and being HD then most of the junk from nowadays. Ducktales>Crysis 3 and so forth. Why fix what isn’t broken. Voice Acting in Zelda would cripple the magic of Zelda.

          • Link Slayer

            I seriously think day day 1 there will be more ps4′s out there than WiiU’s in its whole year span

          • Nintedward

            What a load of bullshit you just spewed. Wiiu is at roughly 4 million worldwide right now. It should be (emphasis on the word should) at about 6-8Million+ by the end of this year. By comparison the 360 sold 8 million in its first year.

            I can guarantee the Wiiu will get to at least 6 million by years end , and the PS4 will probably sell about 800K in its first week in US and Europe each territory with a Japanese release coming later.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Again, you’re guarantees are just opinions. Leave it at that. How is it bullshit that he thinks something different that you don’t agree with? Come now, none of us here are analysts, which you yourself try to do and then accuse others of such things. Calling it bullshit he spewed could’ve been said better.

          • Newness

            I don’t see him calling you an idiot so…the fact you had to put that in says something. He is right though, there are some good games. You stated your opinion and then got bitchy when he mentioned his..

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            He did in previous comments if you paid attention. I don’t know if it was this article or another. Look around if you wish. Believe what you like.

            I never got bitchy, I only respond back with the same if they try to insult me. Eye for an eye.

          • DereX

            To finish your quote… “An Eye for an eye LEAVES THE WHOLE WORLD BLIND”… In other words, Don’t resort to calling people names because two wrongs don’t make a right.

          • bizzy gie

            And two Wongs don’t make a white (sorry couldn’t help myself).

          • DragonSilths

            2 wrongs dont make a right, but 3 lefts do.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Maybe so, but I don’t go by the whole quote. As long as he and other keep their insults to themselves, there shouldn’t be problems.

          • Newness

            You want to keep telling people to read.. Do it yourself. All over its you bad mouthing people and starting arguments. You’re a jerk. You don’t simply state opinions, you attack Nintendo and its fans with insults knowing very well that you’ll get people snapping at you. You can’t go into a Nintendo area making comments that are simply bait.
            If I won’t onto a Xbox site and said “Microsoft makes products for stupid people” and expect nobody To say anything

          • peeer

            Then you know not to reply and let them speak alone, that won’t make you look bad to not reply. It is when you reply to their non-senses that you look bad. Enough said.

          • Newness

            Indeed. I allowed myself to get hooked

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Like a fish.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Your nonsense speaks for itself when you call my opinions nonsense. Enough said.

          • peeer

            When I speak to you, you can reply to me, this reply just shows your non-sense to the public. Which is something I’m not going to bite to. :/

            Speaking of opinions, I respect everyone’s opinions, can you say as much?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I can and I just did. Either you don’t see both sides here or you choose not to. Only time I start is when someone starts with me. If they don’t like what I say, then they are free to leave it be and not respond, but they do anyways, and keep it going or turn to name calling, which I don’t do unless they bring it first.

            Also, I can reply to you whenever I want. Just like people have done to me. As long as I’m not doing anything against the rules, then it’s all fair game. I replied to you just a bit ago cause your comment related to me.

          • peeer

            It only relate to you if you feel so, I haven’t mentionned any names if you noticed. I’m just tired of seeing peoples crying that one said something he did not like. I tell them to quit replying when its useless to say anything.

            EDIT: Besides, the games you guys are playing its like a double edged knife. Trolling is fine if the other was trolling you first but when it goes too far, who is trolling who at the end? ;)

            Have to have a stop somewhere.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t go to Microsoft websites. Thank you very much. I do go to sites like GameInformer that talk about everything gaming and yes I do leave criticism there too.

            If you wanna continue to see it as attacking then there’s nothing I can say that will change a person who only sees it one way’s mind. “You” go look at comments and find it as I don’t have to explain myself no one. Not my problem if you can’t dig for them. First impressions are very deceiving my friend.

          • Nintedward

            Vice versa….. nuff said.

          • greengecko007

            Relying on first party games IS the way to promote the system. The reason the Wii U isn’t doing so hot right now is because Nintendo mistakenly believed that all the 3rd party companies they ignored for the past 20 years would start bringing their games over. The Wii U isn’t selling as well as it should because of the lack of first party games.

            People claim that launch periods are always hard, but I seem to remember the Wii launching with Twilight Princess, and having a difficult time finding a store that wasn’t sold out of Wiis.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            A LOT of people dont even know what the Wii U is. i run into them everyday at work.

          • lonewolf88

            then we have indie and they can just make new ips
            plus i doubt we will see mario going away ever it has stayed for years and each year it stays the less likely it is to ever leave. and we already know zelda and metroid will never die.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Oh I know Mario will stay, but that doesn’t mean I can’t voice my opinion and say he’s over used with so many games in his name. Even sports games which is really stretching it.

            Indie games however Nintendo is doing a fine job on, they’ve got that one under control and we’re seeing games being develop a lot more. Wiiware was horible and we know that, even with some good games, the space limit really hurt Nintendo. E-Shop isn’t perfect but it’s a huge improvement.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            perhaps youve voiced it enough.

            Rocky! theres a limit.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Perhaps you’ve showed your shallow opinion enough? How cute, my very own stalker. I think I’ll name you Tingle.

        • YouAreStupid

          Yeah… like the WiiOne or Nintendo 6. Genius works those would have been.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Super Wii? Why not? I think it would appeal to old fans that got lost during the way. And much easier to differentiate as something new.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. Or just drop the Wii name and go with something completely new.

          • DragonSilths

            I still like the name Nintendo Stream since it Streams to the Gamepad.

          • Akatosh

            Hey, that’s a pretty good one! ^^

          • DragonSilths

            Thanks, I thought so.

      • http://wiiudaily.com/ Monomon

        WiiUltra – ltra= WiiU?

    • Michael Ocampo

      He probably didn’t rename the Wii U because of all the trademarks he already put into motion around the world.

    • DereX

      They should have just called it the Mario Machine and gotten right to the point. Why is this news today?

  • JB

    They still could just offer to buy it from the domain owner… Though, who knows how much they’ll ask for it now…

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I don’t think it would have been that huge. Taking it by force was just an arrogant and douchebag move.

      • Ducked

        I don’t know why people downed your post, it was a douchebag move…

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Hahaha. Yet, I’m a douchebag, hilarious. It’s a site revolved around the Wii U, I expect the down votes. If you’re praising Nintendo, you get upvoted, if you tell the truth and tell like it is, you’re downvoted. That’s just how it is with diehard fanboys, of course the ones that do at least understand and agree with me.

          Regardless, upvotes and downvotes are just numbers to me. Why take them that seriously? That’s the way I see it. It won’t stop me from voicing my opinions.

          • Guest

            I have one question for you…. Why have you used your Prisoners ID as your profile pic ? LMAO!!!!

          • Kriskura

            @Nintendward: No offence but… Do you feel smart insulting persons like that on their profile pic/photos?… That comment was gratuitous violence and really immature. How do you want to be taken seriously with that kind of attitude?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            My thoughts exactly. It’s fine if he wants to make stupid comments about why I dislike Nintendo, but to talk about my profile pic or anything personal is downright shameful of any person, young or old.

            He’s only mad cause of comments earlier and apparently didn’t get over them. People like that I don’t take seriously. Of course with fanboys or anyone really over the net, they don’t care cause it’s easy to say it behind a computer instead of their face. Makes you wonder where his folks are.

          • Morits Lian

            “@Nintendward”? I only see that as a guest comment

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It wasn’t like that last night. To be honest, I don’t know why it says that now. Kinda odd. Regardless, he said those words and I’m sure he won’t deny them now.

            Anyways, it’s done with and I think most of us are moving on from it, so it doesn’t matter much now.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I have a better question for you, why is your ass up Nintendo’s? That’s right, cause you kissed it so many times it eventually slid up there.

            It’s cute that you try to be clever, but you fail hard at it. Also, prisoners wear red up here so you’re off on the color. Nice try. The fact that you even tried to even fight back means that you’re butthurt otherwise, you wouldn’t need to comment back.

            You can say the same about me, but unlike you, my reasoning has to do with the topic at hand, not on ones personal life. At least I use my real name and not hide behind a fake name and pic. I can show who I am. I don’t see you doing that, right? Of course, cause you don’t want people seeing your forehead with a tattoo that says “I’m a butthurt fanboy.”

            At least I tell it as it is and don’t go around asking questions that have nothing to do with this site, and trying to find ways to release your anger because someone talked down your favorite company. Grow up little kid.

          • 210stuna

            If I could write down how I feel about this article, it would be a waste of time. You sir have my thumbs up for saying what needed to be said, regardless if you feel nothing from the gesture. You get what I am saying, and I like it.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I appreciate the gesture, always have from people who can respect my words, even if they don’t agree with them. Thumbs up to you for taking the time to read and understand where I’m coming from.

          • bizzy gie

            Somebody’s butt up somebody else’s butt?

            Why sir, you just gave me one of the worst mental pictures I’ve ever had!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Glad I can help.

          • Nintedward

            ”why is your ass up Nintendo’s? ” lol! I needed that one.

            Stop trying to get personal lol it was just a joke sorry if I offended you… The reason I use this name and gravatar is because I thought it was funny.

            I had a few to drink last night and was a bit drunk…. I apologize for that comment is was out of line lol. I’ve given you a load of upvotes and you are totaly right on this topic.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I wasn’t getting personal actually, just mirroring what you’re doing to me really. When you name called me I did it back. Pretty much it.

            I’ll apologize for seeming harsh, but again, that’s my personality and I don’t see why people would get upset if I don’t agree with them or use insults. Hopefully, this clears some things up.

            Not all of us who criticize Nintendo are assholes, we just have our way of saying things, and unfortunately, some people take it far too personal and start attacking and some even ban together, which makes me laugh when they think they’re at war.

          • Nintedward

            Indeed , I sincerely apologize for that comment lol I made it after I’d had a bottle of Wine and a few beers with some friends…. I cringed at it when I saw it the next day lol. I was drunk , but I should know better even when I’m drunk hehe….

            It’s all for shits and giggles though , let’s not take anything seriously though if our opinions collide ;)

            Add me on Miiverse if you want xNintedwardx

          • TheLordOfDarkness

            I’ve seen you on this site a lot and always thought you were a great contributor and impartial fan, but I’ve lost a lot of respect for you because of this comment. In fact I logged in just to downvote you.

            You aren’t being funny, you’re being a cunt – and for all the reasons Daniel, who I happen to agree with, mentioned.

          • Nintedward

            Daniel was being a dick in a previous article…. And i’d had a couple to drink when I made that comment. It was meant as a joke lol but I see it’s pretty offensive…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You started the name calling and you know it. Lol. You can at least admit to that and stop acting like you did nothing of the sort. Address your mistakes on that and things should be fine between us and there will be no hard feelings. Drinking or not, you’re responsible for your own actions. Own up to them as I’ve owned up to mine. I’ll admit that I come off as harsh at times, but then again, a lot on here are far worse than I and even mindless fanboys and they know who they are more at fault.

            I’ll make it simple though, not everyone here who doens’t agree with you is a troll, people just assume. I just tell it as it is and with my own opinions with some facts to back them up. You may not agree with them, but you can at least leave the name calling out of it as well as personal fibs.

            I’m more than willing to call a truce. Not everyone that criticizes NIntendo is here to troll, like I said, people assume.

          • Nintedward

            Yeah , I was being a dick lol… *shakes your hand :)*

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            *shakes* I was right, and you were wrong. Mario still sucks. Glad we understand this. (Joking of course)

          • bizzy gie

            The thing about Disqus is that when you delete a comment, the comment stays. You just separate your account from it and the comment becomes anonymous.

          • QuizmasterBos

            Nah, people just act violently towards namecalling. It’s like they scan a post for words meant to badmouth and then immediately downvote instead of reading it. I use logic and say it as it is all the time and barely ever get downvotes.

            And yes, I agree, don’t let the downvotes stop you. You’re doing great!

          • Ducked

            Those votes changed haha

      • DereX

        Especially because the domain was for sale WHILE they were taking legal action against them for it.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Exactly, so I don’t see why people would support this, I don’t even support Microsoft when they tried something similar.

    • Joey Perez

      Not a problem … Kind of a no news story here u know ha ha … Nintendo.com suffices all too well anyways …

      They should advertise the Wii u as. Nintendo u …. A new Wii system for you .!

  • me

    im cool

  • Link Slayer

    Nintendo is starting to sound like Microsoft. I’m really starting to lose respect for them.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      They lost most of mine. Only thing that links me to them is the past when they were more brave and risk takers. They’ve become liars and douches of late.

      • Unimportant Bystander

        Unfortunately they are not the only ones. Even Sony and Microsoft have made mistakes in the past and still are making mistakes today (Microsoft). I hope that one day they’ll earn the respect they once lost.

        • Link Slayer

          the problem is.. Nintendo Wii U has already been out a year. And Sony Games will be coming out around the same Time as Nintendo’s big games and thats Two years after Wii U launched. The games this holiday is not big launches to me. I really hope Nintendo picks it up

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Agreed. Finally, some people here get it.

          • YouAreStupid

            That you’re stupid? Everybody got that.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Seems like someone can’t resist commenting back, why? Because you’re stupid? I got that already.

          • YouAreStupid

            Oh, I can resist, hence, why I haven’t responded back to a lot of your posts. Go ahead and pile up more evidence of your stupidity.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I think they got that you’re a butthurt fanboy. Nuff said.

          • NkoSekirei

            continue to make ur self look like an @$$ troll cause frankly microsoft and sony will suffer the same drought that the wii u went through

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You’re the ass troll for even commenting on my comments with hate. I never hated, you did. As for the drought claim, you might be right, but I can bet it’ll sell better than the Wii U by years end.

          • NkoSekirei

            the only reason im responded to u alitte agressively is that ur the one that throwing the insults around on this article to people that are disagreeing wat ur saying but it seems u wont understand that will u

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            As said, so are other people and they are the ones who decided to insult me just for not sharing their opinion. I wasn’t aggressive to you at all, you brought it on me. I understand perfectly, but that doesn’t mean I have to put up with people who attack just because I suddenly don’t agree with their posts. You know they do, and you seem like you’re trying to single me out. Sounds a bit unfair, doesn’t it? I think so.

            I have no problem with you or anyone on this site, but I don’t bend backwards for anyone.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Do you know why the developers are so skeptical with the Wii U?? *Drum Roll* It’s the because of the Wii. The developers are unsure about it 1. Because they made a weak system before 2. They don’t know the Wii U specs in Concrete hard facts just speculation. The developers know already that the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft are going to be powerful because of last gen ( next gen started when the Wii U launched). There are after shocks from the last gen that affect the next. Just like the transition from PS2 to PS3. A lot of people though it would be successful at it’s first year just because of the PS2′s success. Look how it turned out, it only got better later down the year. Just like the the Wii being underpowered, the devs would expect the Wii U to be underpowered. However that is not the case. This gen would be a PS2/XBOX/GAMCUBE genereation again. Iwata said that the Wii U is NOT UNDERPOWERED and will PROVE TO THE DEVELOPERS that it’s NOT WEAK as soon as possible.

          • YouAreStupid

            The Playstation 3 never got better. It’s a disgusting failure of a system. It appeals to the dumb, and the dumb are easy to appeal to. Show a naked chick, a gun, an explosion, bad language, and in these days – a zombie, and suddenly the masses call it the greatest thing they’ve ever seen. That’s the people the Playstation appeals to.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Hahaha. That one made me lol. Are you saying that Nintendo fans are the only fans that are smart? Oh man, good luck with that one. Just because someone prefers games that you don’t like doesn’t make them dumb, A lot of them are even college educated. Just because one person plays something that you don’t like doesn’t make them stupid, It makes you stupid for even thinking they are and having no knowledge on who they are or how bright they are.

            That’s very hypocritical and it doesn’t surprise me.

          • Link Slayer

            Thats because thats what people want. Look at the Last of Us its probably the best game I’ve ever played next to OoT. Its story telling at its finest. I shed a few tears in that game.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t think he’ll get it.

          • DragonSilths

            Oh god, call in the Nintendo Ninjas. The Last Of Us as good as Ocarina???NOT EVEN CLOSE. What did TLOU bring new to the industry? NOTHING. TLOU has AMAZING GRAPHICS AND A GOOD STORY BUT PLAYS LIKE UNCHARTED.

            It brought the best most engaging story to ever grace a gameing console, The best voice acting to ever be in a videogame, really good gameplay and rpg upgrading elements, one hell of a robust online multiplayer. I Didn’t say it was better than OoT but it is the best game since OoT. Nintendo is just a dying breed and It hurts me to say that I mean it hurts me deep down in my heart. I was in denial also. I bought a 3ds at launch and a Wii U and I defended Nintendo on those consoles for months. I just cant take it anymore. I give up. There going to have to show me they can make the best games again. Not half ass kiddie games thats family friendly. Those are great but I want it to be like the Nes, SNes days. I mean I’m so depressed about all this. The 3ds is doing really great and they are really putting out quality content but Nintendo really needs to stop putting out consoles and making fans wait a year to two years for us fans to even get our high Quality titles we deserve. We pay our hard earned cash for those systems. And a system without games is just a piece of plastic, soder, and metals that are meaningless dust catchers. Times has changed so much and I dont have money to buy 2 or 3 consols to play all good games first and third party. Thats why I have converted to Sony I get there amazing top of the line First party games and all the great 3rd party games that come out. I’m not getting third party with Nintendo or First part for that matter. Its just a sad time to be a Nintendo fan. I really want to blame it on Iwata. They need somebody young and new and willing to take bold risks to take over that company. I mean the Wii would have done awefull like the 64 and Gamecube if it wasn’t for that mass apeal to casual people that arn’t gamers.

            See Nintendo messed up big time on the 64 and Gamecube, Two great systems but they were missing certian things sony had. The ps1 was able to play cds and had great games so people really wanted that they could listen to music and play games on one machine that was unhurd of then. The ps2 had a Dvd player so you could watch movies and play games on one machine. As small as that may sound that really was a big deal. Of course I stuck it out with Nintendo through those times while all my friends were like Nintendo is lame now. Nintendo got real lucky with the Wii it had a mass apeal factor but you couldnt play dvds on it but people really liked the motion controls and most were non gamers all but us hardcore Nintendo fans. Nintendo thought they could do somewhat of the samething with mass apeal using a tablet controler. Trying to use that tablet hype to sell a console. They figured that would sell the system they didnt need games right off the back. They didnt think ahaid. Just like the Wii it didnt have that many games because people only cared about those few little games. See Iwata even said we need that one game just a few weeks ago. But reggie contridicted that by saying i dont think we just need that one key title we need a steady stream of software to apeal to all gamers and we need that steady 3rd party support. I really think reggie knows what he is talking about. Iwata I’m starting to believe is a drunken idiot.

          • DragonSilths

            You would think devs would LIKE a system thats not all POWERFUL!!!! Cause that means less expensive for them to make games. Remember where you came from devs. Did you make a game on the NES or SNES? If so THOSE WERENT OMFG SO MUCH POWER ITS OVER 9000!!!

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Yeah but devs this days are like “look at thag pawa—! There are so much graphics that we can put here like the dirty under your finger nails and fish moving out of your way *pukes rainbows* ” Devs care about power so much that they make the gameplay so bad. If they focused more on gameplay than graphics they would be sellers.

            7 months equals a year where you live?

          • Link Slayer

            close enough 7 months and 1 game thats pretty damn pathetic. Maybe I’m just outgrowing Nintendo, there just not for me anymore

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That’s more or less me too. I don’t hate Nintendo, I’ve just grown from their games pretty much. When we grow up, we wanna see something new that appeals to your new state of mind, not the same things we’ve played during our childhoods.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            By something new you mean all the same games from other companies played the same way sitting on your ass with a controller staring at a screen… You mention that Nintendo needs to evolve yet they are the only company really trying to innovate new ways to play video games and are often copied or mimicked.

            Sure Nintendo uses their world known characters and even makes games similar to past games but name one company that does not. The truth is that just like movies the video game industry uses the same ideas and every once in a while you see something new and fresh.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Do you see new IP’s? I sure don’t. If they do, it’s usually Mario related which in my opinion isn’t a true IP. Call it how you like.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Yes I do.. Bayonetta 2 (which is not exactly new but new to Nintendo) which Nintendo found interest enough to help fund the development in the game. Then there is “X” which is being developed by one of Nintendo’s developers.

            List all those new IPs from these other game companies? The vast majority of what was shown off for the other platforms are just new editions of the same game titles but apparently that is OK because of the “Ooooh look at the pretty graphics” The list is just as small. People seem to be fine to be excited about the next CoD, GTA, New sports game, Killzone, or whatever but if someone finds that it is still fun to play a 2D Mario Platformer or another game with a Nintendo Character then it is the same old boring stuff.

            Why can’t you just admit that you like different games and move on.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Because those new games aren’t games that I’d want to play. I’d rather take a current IP with new editions than a new one that I know for sure I wouldn’t sit down and play for long. Know what I mean?

            As I said before, I grew out of a lot of Nintendo games, only ones that still hold up for me are Smash Bros and Mario Kart which can be entertaining with a few people.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Oh so because they are games you may not be interested in then you do not see them??? And you have the gall to call others blind fanboys?? Seems to me you are the fanboy simply by if it is not what you like then other people are wrong. Make claims that everyone cares about specs because you do.

            I cannot predict the future of Nintendo but using the factual information I have that Nintendo’s games are often amongst the highest rated and reviewed games by the experts and players themselves I will make the educated guess that with a few of their top titles are released sales will increase and if they keep the games steady and of quality the sales of their console will get better. This trend has been proved with pretty much all of Nintendo’s consoles and most recently with the 3DS. Same goes for Sony and Microsoft…. If they fail to deliver their own exclusive games then THEIR future will become unclear.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Wow, you’re so blind too. I said several times that people can like whatever they want, it’s their problem. My problem is most get upset over an opinion. I made that pretty clear. I don’t care about specs, but the 3rd parties do, and that’s the real issue. If I cared always about specs, then I wouldn’t own a Wii.

          • oontz

            Sony will have 20 exclusive ps4 games in the first year alone and 12 of those are all new IPs.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Power to them. Now if Nintendo can take a hint….that would be a change in scenery..

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            I’d like to see your source because most sites reporting only show a handful of new IPs (meaning 2 -4 at most) and not a whole heck of a lot of exclusives within the launch Window. Those are the confirmed games.

            For example take this list edited just a couple days ago
            http://www.ign.com/wikis/playstation-4/Playstation_4_Launch_Titles

          • oontz

            Here ya go…
            http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/24/20-games-12-new-franchises-coming-to-playstation-4-in-year-one

            Keep in mind as well this doesn’t even include the amount of 3rd party titles also hitting the ps4. Sony had mentioned before that they planned this transition much better than previous generations. It also helps that they own 13 first party studios, producing content only for them.

          • DragonSilths

            Wonderful 101…and Miyamoto’s New IP whatever it may be.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Not really much, but it counts I guess. However, they’re not guaranteed to be system sellers, so we’ll see.

          • DragonSilths

            Besides Wii Music any Miyamoto game is a system seller basically.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            If it was any, then Wii Music would have sold too. I think you mean most.

          • oontz

            How is Nintendo trying to emulate the success of the ds by putting a watered down tablet in the living room seen as innovation? So far even they aren’t using the game pad to its full potential.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            +1

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            It has only been 8 months.. While some may only use the gamepad for a second screen similar to the DS for maps and item inventory there have been some that have used it as a tool for the game itself. Nintendo Land does that very well when it comes to multi-player and other games incorporate the gamepad controller into the game as a device that can scan your environment. The funny part when it was leaked that Nintendo was going to do something like the gamepad controller we saw Microsoft Glass and Sony use their Vita and tablets in a similar manner. Yet neither of them seem to do the functions as seamless as the gamepad.

          • oontz

            The question remains… where is the innovation? IT HAS only been 8 months but in that time Nintendo should have had a AAA game launched that showed the full potential of the gamepad. Nintendo land… although okay, doesn’t do the gamepad justice. So far the best game to show its potential is ZombiU. As for other companies copying the gamepad idea… to be fair remote play has been around for a long time. Even on the psp, well before the wiiu was even in development.

          • DragonSilths

            Speak for yourself. I’ve seen the way games are going in general, and honestly its not a good direction. Development Costs will continue to rise as more and more yell, kick and scream for more power and better graphics which will drive the price of games up and ruin the industry. Honestly I would love if 8th gen games were 8 and 16 bit like the SNES days. Just make those types of games but with the bigger memory they would be HUGE single player campaigns.

          • oontz

            This may be the stupidest thing I’ve ever read

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You read my mind.

          • greengecko007

            There is no trend to support that belief though. Even with 30 years of inflation, the MSRP for video games has always been $40-60. Yes, there were new NES games that sold for $60.

            Development costs continue to rise? Generally, technology that is considered better is more expensive. But because technology is always improving, development costs typically start high and decrease over time for every console generation, because the hardware in the console becomes outdated.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Makes sense to me.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Yeah…..no.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Close enough?? Wow More like a little over half a year.. Comments like this is why you cannot be taken seriously

          • YouAreStupid

            And Sony has no big games coming out during it’s launch. Just more of the same garbage you see coming out all the time these days.

          • Link Slayer

            Killzone isn’t garbage and Infamous will be out launch Window. And Knack will be just as good as all the kiddie games Nintendo is making these days.

          • DragonSilths

            Killzone is your generic FPS. Kill enimies, advance, kill enimies, advance, get to the end of a level WOO HOO! Infamous is good but still. In MY OPINION the best PS4 game so far is Destiny, a multiplat that got delayed till next year.

          • Link Slayer

            This new Killzone is soposed to be pretty awesome. Also Killzone 3 was pretty good. I like it

          • YouAreStupid

            Killzone is garbage, as if Infamous. They appeal to the lowest form of human being. The simplest form.

          • Link Slayer

            Awesome I guess me and millions of others are super low. But I already knew I was the lowest on the totem pole of humanity. Thanks for reminding me though.

          • YouAreStupid

            Yes, you are. You are stupid.

          • Link Slayer

            I’m worse than stupid. I’m a stupid ignorant piece of white trash crap that has no life and is better off dead sometimes

          • YouAreStupid

            You said it. Not me.

          • Link Slayer

            I guess the upper end of society likes jumping on musrooms and breaking blocks.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You can call them garbage, but most of these games sales figures tell you otherwise as well as user scores from websites. Are those people garbage too? If you say yes, then you found a new low for yourself.

          • DragonSilths

            Your forgetting 1 MAJOR thing. Wii U had a year to get all the features up and running at 100% and all the bugs/glitches fixed. PS4 at launch…well get ready for system bugs/glitches Yellow Light Of Death so forth lol.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Now you’re assuming. Nice job.

          • DragonSilths

            The saying “History repeats itself” comes to mind.

        • Link Slayer

          Ps4 and Xbone are getting brand New Third Party games right out the box. Not games that are nearly a year old Like wii u getting Mass effect and Batman

          • YouAreStupid

            Except those new third party titles are going to be garbage.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Or, you’re just upset and now they’re garbage just cause they’re not coming to the Wii U.

          • DragonSilths

            Nintendo fans for the most part HAVE NO INTEREST IN MINDLESS SHOOTERS. And cause we dont want games made by the WORST COMPANY IN NORTH AMERICA 2 YEARS IN A ROW is a big deal? Sorry for having standards. As for GTA5 much like Destiny it hasnt been revealed for PC or Wii U yet. So thats an incomplete argument. Regardless I have never enjoyed the GTA games.

          • Link Slayer

            I dont think BF3 or GTA 5 will be garbage!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I know right? Even that statement can be easily argued.

          • DragonSilths

            Think you meant BF4 but its a supped up BF3. Slightly improved graphics and more destruction in game but its same old. Anyone who supports EA needs to be stranded on a 5 foot X 5 foot island where they can fight to survive.

          • oontz

            Ha ha it’s fanboys like you that need to wake the fuck up!!! There is a reason that the wiiu is being swept under the rug. How you can claim those games will be garbage when they’re not even released yet is beyond comprehension.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            They try hard to defend, but it usually backfires on them.

          • Gabe Hoffman

            Except that if you look at it in perspective many of those launch games are mainly cross gen ports that will also be on PS3 and 360

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            How many of those cross gen ports are coming to the Wii U. Not many, right?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. It’s good to see some people will take a stand over mindless fanboys.

          • Link Slayer

            Tbh I am a fanboy, I just cant take getting raped for my money anymore. If people dont buy Nintendo products they will have to be bold and make quality products again!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            But are you a mindless one? You don’t to me, which is a plus. There’s nothing wrong with being a fanboy as long as said person can be reasonable and can actually stay within reality.

            Fact is, if you keep feeding people the same things, they’ll never know what’s different and just want the same ol’ stuff time and time again. Nintendo really needs to change that. They can still be succesful even with some changes.

          • XroyD

            Yay, lots of 3rd party titles for PS4 & XB1 (90% shooters)

          • Link Slayer

            I like shooters especially 3rd person shooters. Red Dead, Uncharted, The Last of Us, and Gears of War are my favorites. I’m not a huge fan of First Person Shooters.

          • XroyD

            The Last of Us and Uncharted are great, but what I was saying is that their isn’t a lot of variety of games coming out for those consoles

          • Link Slayer

            there is jorney, Ne Nu Kino, God of War, Final Fantasy, and a whole lot more. there isn’t nothing on Wii U. But games that came out 2 years ago for the multiplat and 1 Nintendo Exclusive. Sony has a great line of Exclusives and all the multiplats

          • XroyD

            Yeah, you’re talking about a console that has been out for 6+ years or whatever. Obviously will have more games but you’re saying Nintendo has nothing on Wii U? A better port of NFS Most Wanted, Lego City Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, New Super Luigi U, Scribblenauts Unlimited, New Super Mario Bros U, Zombi U, RE Revelations, Injustice and Nintendo Land. Plus you have your virtual console games and new games on eShop (Nano Assault Neo, Little Inferno and Bit Trip)??? I have to admit that there has not been something new in a couple of months (except for New super Luigi U) but that will start to change in August.

            Upcoming (exclusive) Wii U games:

            Pikmin 3

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Does it really matter? They are getting games, right? I mean it’s not the games that you’re used to, but they are getting third party support. Nintendo needs to jump in and get some of that otherwise they’re falling under.

          • DragonSilths

            I found Red Dead, neat but only mediocre at best. Not a bad game but nothing great. Uncharted or as I call it Unchanged since there all rip offs of the old Tomb Raider games just you play as a guy instead of Lara Croft. The Last Of Us…was SO promising but besides amazing graphics my god it felt like Uncharted. Same style of shooting, crounching and hiding behind stuff, it just felt like Uncharted with infected zombie clickers in it. As for Gears Of Bore…well Judgment was just terrible and has run its course. Even the creator of Gears left cause he was done with the series lol.

          • Link Slayer

            When you were typing that I could almost sware your butt cheeks were just flaping away! I think that is the single most dumb thing I have ever hurd in my entire life dude. The Last of Us had an amazing story, great graphics, tons of gameplay, really hard trophies, a robust online multiplayer differnt than any game out there. The replay value on that game is top notch. Red Dead was the best open world game this generation had to offer.

          • DragonSilths

            Real hard trophies? OH THANK THE LORD!!! Cause virtual pats on the back are anything.

          • Link Slayer

            It really does extend the replay value man. I sware your an idiot dude!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Kids can’t usually be reasoned with. Very true. It shows on this site’s posters.

          • DragonSilths

            Spending 3 hours to try to do a challenging task is replay value? And I’m an idiot? Look at your picture…now that looks like an idiot to me.

          • Link Slayer

            Fuck you. Your a mother fucking piece of shit. Go fucking choke on a rock!

          • Link Slayer

            Keep playing your fucking shity kid games with no fucking effort by a bunch of drunken Japs that cant make decent games. The Wii U aint selling because its a piece of shit and gamers know that. 90 percent of Wii owners are Moms and Gramparants the other 10 percent are Nintendo fans. Nobody wants a Wii U except Serious Nintendo fans. I bought one and it was a waste of my hard earned cash. I sold it for 90 dollars and I feel sorry for whoever buys it from gamestop because it will end up being sold or someones paper weight. I hope Nintendo changes.

          • Link Slayer

            you can play your little blocky ass graphic games with 10 minute load screens and just be happy about it because your are a Nintendo Zombie or you are just so retarted that you really like there games.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True, but at least they are getting third party support, right? You can criticize it all you like and that’s fine, but that’s something Nintendo should have had long ago.

          • DragonSilths

            So? If Wii U launched this year it would to. There wasnt that many worth while new 3rd party games out at the Wii U’s Launch. Wii U is still getting alot of the same ones the PS4 and Xbox One are. Watch Dogs, AC4, Batman Arkham Origins. So forth.

          • oontz

            Watch dogs will suck on wiiu they aren’t even focusing on it yet as all their efforts are going towards the real next gen systems. This is exactly what they stated in their last developer interview. Actually they didn’t even mention wiiu

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t know the whole story on that one, but seeing how most third parties have that thinking, I’ll take your word for it.

          • DragonSilths

            OMG. You are one of those “HarDCorEZ” Specs this and that. PS4 will have the best version in the GRAPHICS department. Wii U version will have the most UNIQUE version with hacking with the Gamepad. Xbox One version will be usless anyway. PC version if their will be one will rape your PS4. Get your shit straight.

          • oontz

            Wow you sound like a 12 year old valley girl. Ha ha ha. You’re such a loser.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            word homie. but wiiu will be a good system to have down the road for sure.

            also, we dont know the quality of these new ips.

            im hoping that they will be great.

            we will see when the ps4 and xb1 debut :)

      • Link Slayer

        Thats how I feel. I bought a Wii U because they said they learned from the 3ds mistakes and were going to insure Nintendo fans that there would be a hefty amount of First party software and exclusives like Rayman on the Wii U all at launch and launch Window. We only seen 1 damn Nintendo title except for Lugi U and its just another version of the only game they put out. They bluntly lied to our face. You could argue Nintendo just wanted to make the games better and of course that is true but I think Nintendo is just to cheap to hire help. The other only option there could possible be is they realeased the console way to early that people were just starting to develop on Wii U when it came out. So thats why there games are coming out in 2014. So they should have realeased this holiday a few months before the other companys at a cheaper price point. And maybe beefed up the specs a bit to entice hardcore gamers and Third party developers. So us Hardcore gamers could be like wow Nintendo is back and they have a sweet controller. And it should have been called like Nintendo X or something or Super Nintendo X. Man that would have been sweet.

          Nintendo aren’t the only ones with 2014 lauches, Sony and Microsoft will too. Not all the games they said or announced at E3 will be released in the first year. Also Nintendo X would be a good name.

        • Shaise

          its not all about specs

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Unfortunately, for hardcore gamers, it is. While they’re not the most important aspect of gaming, they are still necessary otherwise most third parties will look past the Wii U, which most are right now.

          • Shaise

            yeah, but thats why nintendo has spoken about getting 3rd parties on board

          • YouAreStupid

            That’s the problem with the gaming industry. 3rd party developers tend to be brainless retards who make redundant copies of long established game series. They change the look a little and change the character names, and the dumb masses by into it. They believe they’re playing something they’ve never played before.

            Then, gamers bitch and complain about Nintendo making Mario games while thinking Call of Duty, Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Tekken, Street Fighter, Battlefield, Final Fantasy are all genius pieces of work that are also being creative and original.

          • Shaise

            Yeah, atleast mario gets new powerups, cod is just shooting the hell out of people in every game

          • Link Slayer

            Yeah Nintendo lied about that since the n64

          • Laud

            I’m sorry but hardcore gamers don’t care about specs.

            They care about the level of competition and how fun the games are.

            The ones who go for specs and graphical prowess are the casual ones imo.

            Also, they aren’t looking past the Wii U because of specs, they’re looking past it because of ‘poor’ sales.

            If you don’t even understand that then there’s no hope for you.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sorry my friend, but you’re delusional if you think it’s just low sales. Even Wii had good sales and most third parties didn’t even bother to put out their triple A titles on it. Your point is flawed.

            It’s to each their own on what is hardcore or what is casual. However, whether you like it or not, for most 3rd parties, specs matter.

          • Lance Data

            I Have to agree with this guy, specs might not be everything… But do you have any Idea how hard it is to port a game from the PS4 or even Xbox ones specs down to the Wii U? That is why third parties pull support so quickly.

            I can make games for both the install base of the PS4 and Xbox one and most the art can port between the two especially if made on a engine which is designed to port the game to both systems. The Wii U on the other hand well have to have new lower quality models and such remade to accommodate. This is why Nintendo loses out on so much third party support. It’d be easier to make a exclusive nintendo game and then port that out if it must be on other system, but that means poor graphics compared to what the other systems well be use too.

            So though I love my nintendo games, and own a Wii U. I never expect to see good third party support of main stream games. No matter how well it sells, its just not going to beat the easy of designing a game that can sell for both the xbox one and PS4 do only to the specs. I do however expect to enjoy great exclusives or first party games.

            Ask any computer gamer how much difference the specs can make a difference, or better yet just pull some ram out of the computer you use and experience the difference it makes.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Thank you. I’m fine if people are happy with their WIi U’s, but why can’t people state their opinions on here and say they don’t care for Nintendo’s games or even their direction?

            That’s ignorant beyond belief. My big problem with Nintendo is their president for doing a horrible job and not getting things done more quicker and not reeling in 3rd parties.

          • Lance Data

            You’d think in the economic down turn Nintendo, who could sell nothing over the next 6 years and still have enough for next gen. Could higher 3d animators capable of producing HD graphics. I mean they have been standard for a very long time now and if someone wants to try to convince me their are many looking to work long term at a studio go ahead… But I mean they bought the gay who makes super smash his own studio when he quit Hal, if you have that much money to put into a title I think you can crash course some people in HD graphics.
            I think the real question is that it takes at least 2 years to produce these systems with there custom cards why didn’t they start training crew in small sections, can’t Nintendo afford to put out a 3D HD animated cartoon to build hype for their system and train their artists and animators in the long hall it seems like it would have paid off.
            Not to mention that a big name title outside of a side-scroller would have been nice, not that side-scrollers aren’t fun, I’ve just played a million and a half of them since the atari/ arcade days and feel that 3d graphics don’t help… infact I’d rather have a huge version of castlevania in 2d hand-draw style graphics than any side-scroller that has released in full 3d in the last few year,

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Please explain that if it is so much about the specs and it is hard to port a game to the Wii U from PC, PS4 or XB One then why are many of these developers and publishers advertising that their game engines are so scalable that they can port their games and engines to iPads and tablets with minimal to no issue??

          • Lance Data

            Because you can port code doesn’t mean you can port graphics. The models have to be reworked to fit the specs of the system, Your not going to be able to port a full Blue ray disk down to a few MB or GB that might fit on a phone. Models do not always scale well and it well be a while until this changes. Also its important to remember that even though the engine runs code on a platform doesn’t mean that anything on one platform can be moved to another without work. If it had nothing to do with specs then why haven’t smart phones completely replaced systems? I can buy a blue tooth controller to match the PS3 controller very easily and hook a smartphone to a t.v. its simply the specs that prevent this.
            If you watch the market and its movements its more likely you well see phones start streaming games from servers as the phones with there specs can already do this well and several servers offer it similar to how the vita streams the PS4 on a much larger scale.This is the real reason they believe that gaming well soon be dead not instantly, but its a dying fire. As soon as the greater portion of the internet can stream games at full graphics, the gaming industry is going to move big time. That is probably a gen off at least though.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Well just like in the PC world if the game engine is so scalable that code is designed to adjust the graphics detail and other graphical aspects accordingly with the hardware it is running on.

            There is no doubt that some of the games made cross platform will not look as good on the Wii U as they do on the PS4 and XB One just as the graphical detail on those same games run on a high end PC blows anything away on any console.

            My point was that these companies cannot claim their game engines are so scalable that they will run on a low end PC all the way down to a ultra low end (spec wise) tablet and then make the claim that the Wii U is underpowered

            Besides I think the Wii U is more powerful than people think it is… What some of these self-proclaimed hard-core gamers are upset about is that the official specs of the Wii U were never released or used as a bragging advertisement tool for those that only care about specs.

          • Lance Data

            The problem is that a game designed to run a number of process on 4 GB of ram at its most optimal is not going to run on 2 GB of ram because your going to be cutting out processes which means the game will lag. You can scale down these processes but the game then you are removing parts of the game, and if it is already fully optimized then the game can’t run.

            Even if the graphics scale their are lots more to games. If this wasn’t true then as before why have smart phones not killed the industry, its not like graphics along matter that much. Lets take dead rising its a rather famous series, Having so many zombies on the screen with so much A.I. running takes a lot of power and that can’t just scale down or there wouldn’t be any reason for higher specs at all. Your not going to see the next halo scaled down and playable on a windows phone because of some miracle engine that makes specs not matter.

            Also there are more aspects, for instance the specs of the Wii U have to run a separate screen. the game pad takes extra graphical work to make that screen functional along with reworking the controls. Its not as simple as just being weaker as there is also the aspect of being different which hurts porting. Sure Nintendo is innovating, third party support is the cost. Not to say that The other companies don’t have issues. It takes extra work and the businesses are not seeing this work as worth the cost.

            PS4 might face a similar problem with the forced streaming for the vita, matters how automated it is as streaming shouldn’t be hard if its core design. The Xbox is likely to face very bad sells do to their miss information no casuals are really going to know whats up with the system and even hard cores might bail for them even thinking about half of it..

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            You make some very valid points and I agree that specs matter to a point but I suppose I just find it disappointing that some game developers rather not take a risk to bring something new to the table even if it is just a new way to play game inspired by a game of the past. I tend to think this is why the video game industry is suffering just like the movie industry is hurting. The lack of original ideas and innovation. But if people are going to focus on specs then they need to understand that the PS4 and XB-One are not as powerful as they are made out to be. I guess that is why there are gamers who say only the true hardcore gamers game on PCs. Despite the 8-core Processor and Ram those consoles do not hold a candle to what a PC can do when it comes to raw power.

            In the end it is about how the game engine can be optimized for the hardware it is running on. So while there are some sacrifices that have to be made when the game is scaled it does not mean the game will not work on those other platforms. Most times the sacrifice is the graphical quality or depth in the game but AI does take power as well.

            I understand why some 3rd party companies are hesitant to make games for the Wii U due it’s lack of sales but they need to understand that they often hurt themselves when the release a game later and gimp out on features such as play modes and DLC that have very little or nothing to do with the hardware it playing on.

            Maybe game developers need to start focusing a little less about specs and graphics and find better ways to play the games. They are the ones that are hurting themselves just like the music and movie industries. They need to quit passing the blame around and take ownership of the situation. I see many posters attacking Nintendo while praising other companies for doing the same thing if not worse but yet they have better specs and prettier graphics. I guess that is why I hate the term hardcore gamer. I have been playing video games since before Atari was king and play on a variety of platforms but I tend to lean towards the games and systems that offer new ways to play.

          • Lance Data

            I agree, In the truth I would like to see someone use the game pad for something beside the ability for a second screen to make DS ports. It has a lot of functions which just are not used and could easily make it top if they where mixed together. Mostly the game pad is used for two things, a glorified map holder/ inventory or to make a very short range HD quality hand held.

            Nintendo does have one thing going for it, the supposed ‘fourth’ party which they are doing a huge job catering too, indies and if it turns out some of the most innovative and amazing games are going to come out for nintendo from the group that is willing to take risks… not release another lousy CoD cheaply ported and wonder why it fails. Indie dev’s can’t really make use of all that power anyway except to help skip on some optimization. I think back to when the wii was first released and people where making all kinds of flash games that where made to function just with the wii-mote these where not the best games, but if made on a larger scale they could be a blast.

            I mean it sanctum or sanctum 2 came out with the game pad used to set up your level and wii-mote fps controls I’d by it in an instant. The in-house multi-player would be a blast for sure.

          • DragonSilths

            Uh no. Its much harder to up port a game to a newer system then down port a game to a weaker system. Ubisoft put RAYMAN LEGENDS AN 8TH GEN GAME ON THE XBOX 360 AND PS3, thats a downgraded port. Yet downgrading a PS4 game to the Wii U is to hard? WRONG. Devs be haters and Devs be lazy, its just that simple.

          • Lance Data

            The virtual console games are harder to make then to make nintendo-land function on the original wii perfectly without error? This is the reverse logic I am seeing here a lot, I’m not against Nintendo as stated, but really there are more problems then people are seeing with downgrading specs, also the choice with Rayman isn’t a good show and it actually probably has more to do with Rayman its self being made in line the power of those systems in mind originally.

            This isn’t some rant about graphics specs help make games easier and sadly nintendo choose not to listen to the 3rd party about the specs they wanted to see. A business choice that is hurting them as their competition did decide to match these specs so the dev’s are going with the people who seem to care aka PS4 which is being really hyped by company’s unlike the WiiU which is getting the opposite reaction. In the end Nintendo only cares about having a their own system for their own games. They even claim that is why they make hardware still. third party has been an after thought since the N64 and through the generations it shows more and more.

          • DragonSilths

            The thing is the “Specs” ARE THERE. They just don’t want to do the work actually learning the Wii U in and out. Look at monolith Softs X. THATS WHAT HAPPENES WHEN A DEV ACTUALLY TRYS. But a lot of devs think that just the default Wii U without any research or optimizing a game for it makes it low specs.

          • NkoSekirei

            ur plain retarded thats wat u are troll

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Haha. Because my opinion differs from yours, I’m a troll? I think we know who the troll is, and I’m looking at it. Nice to meet you your trollness. Don’t like my comments, don’t respond to them in the first place. At the very least, try to have a civil discussion rather than a pre-school one.

          • NkoSekirei

            u are a troll cause a wat u state is full of crap and second microsoft is far worse wen it comes to shutting down or retaining sites by force/lawsuit

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I never said they were. So you are putting words into my mouth now? Nice job. If i was a troll I’d be out right hating on Nintendo in which I don’t cause there are positive comments in my posts as well.

            You made absolutely no sense there.

          • DragonSilths

            Funny how pretty much all the devs who make these top notch graphic games with all this power are shit developers making shit games. Gameplay in them SUCKS look at Crysis 3 with that like most devs who want power and graphics you got a shiny piece of shit woop dee doo. Then with say the Wii and Mario Galaxy that puts those games like Crysis 3 to shame. Im not even a Nintendo fanboy, alot of the shit they do I dont like, I even make youtube videos about it, but in this topic Nintendo is the ONLY one doing what needs to be done when it comes to THE GAMES THEMSELVES.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Well if it was all about the specs then they should not look at the PS4 and XB One either because compared to a PC they are weak as shit in terms of power despite their weak 8 core processor and RAM they have.

            My point is that you are wrong about specs and alleged hardcore gamers. In fact the term hardcore gamer is joke in it’s own right made up by those who like to brag about specs.

            The truth is specs matter to a point but if a game developer is designing a game around certain specs then they are in the industry for the wrong reasons.

            Some 3rd parties are looking past the Wii U because of sales which is justifiable but there are other reasons too. Some of them the fault of Nintendo and some of them the fault of the game developer/publisher.

            So keep talking specs if your opinion revolves around it but if you have followed the game industry for the past 30+ years the facts show that specs and graphics are not what matters in the end.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            You can call it the way you like. I have my own views on what I consider hardcore games and you have yours. Truth is and it doesn’t really matter what we think, and that is that it matters to most 3rd parties about specs, otherwise they’d be on board with Nintendo, low sales or big high sales. PS3 suffered from low sales in the beginning, and a significant amount of developers stuck with it. Can you really say that for Nintendo? Kinda hard to chew the way I see it.

          • DereX

            Nintendo made their new console in HD because they know that the average gamer today wants their games to be flattered by wonderful HD graphics…… There are only 2 types of gamers.

            1) The old gamer – These people should just go buy a SNES, or get their games from VC….

            2) The new gamer – These people need graphic intense games. Heck, these people want everything

            Finally, I am going to say that computer games are unhealthy and you shouldn’t condone them.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Wow… you could not be more wrong…

          • DragonSilths

            HAHAHA. Hardcore Gamers are gamers who game all the time, that have gamed for years and years. They follow gaming news regularly and stay up to date with stuff. They pre order stuff. Casuals dont do any of that. Power, Specs only matter to PC Elitiest. Cause lets be honest here, if you want to game with POWER AND GRAPHICS PC IS THE WAY TO GO, NOT A CONSOLE.

        • fireheartis1

          Dude how come every time anybody mentions “hardcore gamer” specs are involved. Specs have nothing to do with being a “hardcore gamer”. I hate that word anyways. I’ve been gaming since I was 5 years old, and now I’m 32 and still love Nintendo products. The Wii U has plenty of power to satisfy my gaming needs. I don’t need super beautiful graphics to be a “hardcore gamer.” Heck a “true gamer” plays on every system rather they own it themselves or not man. I still play on older systems as well. 8 bit, 16 bit, and 32 bit what ever I get my hands on. I still love Atari 2600 bro. Now that’s a “hardcore gamer”. Specs have nothing to do with gaming and it should have never became about specs period.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            Because the term hardcore gamer is made up of mostly douchebags that care only about bragging. It’s penis envy and nothing more. Specs matter to a point but it seems that if the specs are not the highest then it sucks balls. Of course Nintendo could make the most powerful system on the planet but then they would bitch about price if it cost the same or maybe even a little more than it’s competition.

      • YouAreStupid

        They lost most of some random retards respect? Oh no…. What are they gonna do now?

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          You think cause people are retarded just because they don’t see it how you see it? You’re the biggest retard not to think Nintendo isn’t in the wrong for anything. Hi5 hypocrite!

          It’s comments like these make me glad that I’m not a mindless fanboy with no logical thinking. Just so you know, I still love Nintendo as a company, I just don’t respect their direction of late or their figureheads such as Iwata or the “Regginator.” Before you go around critiquiing others, look at yourself and maybe you’ll see how dumb you sound.

          • Luca Invernizzi

            Geez, I’m sorry for all the hate you are getting.

            I like what nintendo is doing, and I think the WiiU is great, but we don’t need to agree on everything, for god sake.

            Not everyone on this site is like that… we should take more care of people that is able to move a critic without being a troll, like you. If we don’t, we deserved to be trolled.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Thank you, it’s nice to see some people can disagree but still be civil. My respects to you. Also, I know not everyone is like that, just the ones who get butthurt over any little criticism that comes their way. I know most of them are either immature adults or kids.

            No one really deserves to be trolled and I don’t. They call me a troll pretty much for having a different opinion than their own and then attack me calling me a troll. Gotta love the irony in it.

          • Luca Invernizzi

            Yap… and honestly, the name choice and all this burocratic mess is pretty much impossible to defende. Come on, you do the big jump to HD (Even if you don’t really want to compete in specific with PS4 ore XBOX1) and you name your console in a way that seems like an add on for you old not-HD console?

            And this really piss me of, cause I think that pad it’s a brilliant addition. I think in the future people will consider normal to have a second smaller screen in your home console. I honestly love it.
            It hurts me see Nintendo not having credit for it, just for some bad decision in advertising, name and 3rd party support.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True. I say at least Nintendo blames themselves for the mess, but I find it funny that people on this site are not allowed to say so as if this is a communist movement.

            Even you got a vote down just for defending. I guess they see you as a traitor lol. If that’s the case, it just stengthens the point that most on this site have one track minds.

            Again, it’s nice to see some people who have their heads on right. If Nintendo can reel in some good third party then my opinion on them might change, but it’s not gonna change just because minds fanboys on this site want it. I can take the heat and I expected it.

            Way I see it, if you can’t handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

          • ranjeybaby

            how is he a hypocrite?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Mostly cause people like him call some people trolls just because they have a different outlook on Nintendo. Let’s be honest here, there are some people here who are complete trolls and those who just put their opinion out with some facts along the side, yet we’re still called trolls.

            I do recall this is a public forum and free speech shouldn’t be shunned just because some fans on here can’t handle criticism. Would they rather me say lies and act like Nintendo does everything right? No thanks.

          • ranjeybaby

            ummm, do you know what hypocrite means, because that was not really an answer to my question.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            A hypocrite is someone who claims they posses certain traits, or
            criticize people who don’t have them, but then they don’t have them themselves.

            That good enough for ya? I never criticized anyone for sticking to their beliefs, they can believe what they want. My problem is people who criticize mine and sudden think theirs matter more than mine, which is retarded. Everyones beliefs and opinions matter and I’m all for that, but if people are gonna sit at their computers and type nonsense and shun others just because they think their beliefs are dumb or stupid, then who is the hypocrite?

            People can hate me all they want and my comments, that’s their problem.

          • ranjeybaby

            You are probably the biggest hypocrite on here right now. You claim that your problem is people criticizing you, but you are the first person to criticize them for opposing your opinions, assuming if they don’t agree with you they are a kid, fanboy, or an idiot, you could just be the bigger man and realise this is what comment sections and forums are like, but instead you jump straight into a slagging match and take part in the very practices you condemn.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I criticize them for calling me an idiot and just bashing on them like theirs are facts. There’s a difference. What don’t you get that I haven’t said several times before?

          • fireheartis1

            Dude how are they not risk takers? The GamePad rather you like it or not is a great innovation. No one else is trying new ways to play. Sony and Microsoft play it way safer than Nintendo does. The only thing Microsoft tried was taking away gamers freedom. That’s not cool at all man. Sony got rid of the PlayStation Camera to cut cost and make the system cheaper. If that’s not playing it safe I have no idea what is. Innovation isn’t all about pure power in graphics bro. Sorry but rather you think so or not Nintendo is the only risk taker in the videogame industry today.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Not really. It’s basically just a dumbed down tablet. Nothing that innovative. If you mean for consoles, then I’ll agree with you on that one. In other words, it’s already been done so it’s not a new idea.

            You are the dumb one for responding to fireheartis comment. Nice one. Plus, I never said it was a dumb idea, dumbed down means it doesn’t do what a pc tablet would do. Also I said it wasn’t that innovative, and to say I don’t know what innovation is means you assume like any bigot. Get it now? Or are you too “dumb” to refrain from name calling?

            You started it this time, and you know you did.

            because off-screen gaming for consoles wasnt innovative right?

            I don’t agree with most of your posts, but come on! Daniel’s comment there was completely truthful and reasonable! How the heck did it get so many downvotes?!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t expect you to agree, only to keep name calling and idiocy out of it. However, most people on here have a hard time doing that. Must be due to their age. Yet, they try to ban together fight back like this is some sorta war. How cute.

          • Lord Carlisle

            Hey, another one of your posts that I agree with!

            Honestly, I’m starting to realize that some of the more popular users on this forum are just pro-nintendo trolls. I disagree with your whole “eye for an eye” way of doing things, but a lot of the people on this site really do need to learn to accept different opinions, and to just quit arguing.

            In response to the reception you’re getting; I don’t think you’re a troll. A troll is knowledgeiswhatsup. Stating an opinion AND insulting others who disagree from the get-go. Actually, people seem to be getting the meaning of the word “troll” wrong.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I pretty much know who the pro nintendo trolls are, and they know who they are. They try to play nice, but bite your head off when you say something negative about Nintendo. They show their true colors, and immaturity.

            Knowledgeiswhatsup is just harsh when he comments, but he does tell the truth about most things on here. Not all but most. True as well, most don’t really know what a troll really is. They just assume when someone talks negative and already label people as such. Some people never heard of free speech.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            Gotta love free speech huh fairy boy?

            you having fun yet?

            because im having a fucking blast.

            Nom NOM NOM

          • BLACKendTiamat

            troll is misused a lot. the meaning of troll is someone who is trying to sway the masses with their beliefs.

            so danny boy saying that nintendo’s gamepad is dumbed down, is trolling.

            comparing it to a tablet is like “apples to oranges” (hey another saying)

            its the controller for the wiiU gaming console.

            it is built perfectly for said system.

            i know some people like to put others on a pedestal.

            isnt it sad that in the end, danny the troll has trolled you?

            considering you agree with him, right?

            but i guess you both can have like-minds.

            hmm…. anyways

            IMO

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sadly for you, the one’s who have brains on this site don’t seem to support you. Know why that is? Cause you’re the one trolling someone just based on a difference of opinion and then have the nerve to to call them trolls when it’s clear who the real troll here is.

            It’s laughable that you think you’re right, and my guess says you’re a kid by how you type. You only pick words that I say and then try to twist them around to defend your stance. Nice try. Anyone can see that quite easy. Go back to your Nintendo. You’re done and lost credibility.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            googoo gaga!

            yes, i lost credibility because of your opinion of me.

            being hypocritical again are we?

          • BLACKendTiamat

            because he has a conflicting personality. simple as that.

            hes the type of person that ALWAYS has something to say lol.

            IMO

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There’s nothing wrong with saying something. Just because you don’t agree with it, doesn’t make it wrong. You however, are wrong for assuming the worst on anyone who has an opinion.

            If it bothers you that much, then why do you comment on my posts? Simple, you are either a troll or lack maturity.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            because its fun.

            youre just such an easy target fairy boy.

            keep em coming!

        lol if it was possible to upvote multiple times I woulda upvote this 1000 times.

  • Marcel Kleine

    they shouldve called the wiiu the SWii, like SNES

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      That would have made more sense instead of Wii U. It’s just a cheap gimmicky name. Wii 2 even would be fine. People would get it’s a new console rather than just a Wii with a new gamepad or it being a handheld.

      • Unimportant Bystander

        I wonder how can a name be cheap???

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Cheap has many meanings. Wii U in my opinion was a horrible choice. Wii 2 or even Super Wii would have helped.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Wii = We + U = You = Wii U
            Just though I should say this…….

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            So? That doesn’t make it a good name just because it makes sense. While I get what it means, not everyone will take a liking to it. Hell, even the Xbox One was a dumb name.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            you just have a problem with only viewing things on the surface.

            Xbox ONE has a meaning.

            as does Wii U

            try not to be so narrow minded, danny boy.

            im sure youre a smart whippersnapper to know what the names mean. try to think! clap your heals together if you have to and fly away fairy boy.

            i think thats what ill call you from now on. fairy boy. i can just picture you wearing a pink tutu with tiny little fairy wings.

            youre so precious! (b^_^)b

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Well it’s not as bad as Xbox One at least you can call the Wii U other names like Wii Ultra Or Super Wii. The Xbox One should have been called Xbox Fusion because there is almost no way you can counteract that

      • Tyler Hilton

        there was a reason it wasnt called wii 2 , that aside ps4 , 2 is smaller than 4 and so it would seem even more inferior but if they had then it would seem better than xbox one

      • 210stuna

        Also with all the “NEW” Super Mario games they keep spewing out, I agree that the Super Wii would’ve made some what of a better name than WiiU.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Super Wii or even Wii 2 would have been just fine. Someone mentioned Nintendo X, and I found that a decent name.

          • 210stuna

            What was the code name for the Wii? Wasn’t it Revolution or something? Anyways yeah, Wii 2 makes more sense. It pretty much is a supped up Wii. Imagine though, when you’re talking to somebody “Aye man you got a Wii 2? Ya I got a Wii too.”

            The confusion that would happen.

            Let’s not forgot about the “Wii” penis jokes. Anything “super” might cause an even louder raucous from that crowd, ha.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Yes, Revolution, which would have been the better name than Wii.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            who the hell down voted this?

            it would have been the perfect name for the wii u, at least.

            albeit it was originally for the wii. safe to say the wii was more of an evolution.

          • BLACKendTiamat

            this is why you will always be pushing a mop around danny boy

        • BLACKendTiamat

          wheres all this IDIOCY coming from? Super Wii? really?

          what ever happen to Nintendo Revolution?

          doesnt sound nearly as retarded compared to some of your guys assumptions.

          OH WAIT!

          Danny boy is going to counter this with “its my opinion leave me alone, wah wah wah!”

          lol. best defense.

          so from now on i will post at the end of every comment of mine…

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I’ve admitted to being wrong and apologized to people before on here. Again, you assume. Your trolling is beyond lame and has no reasoning other than to do just that.

            As for the opinion thing, you have something wrong with people who think logically than idiotically like you? Some of us like to stay in reality instead of our heads up our asses, such as yourself.

            You must have some man crush on me, Tingle.

            Tingle, thats cute. almost as cute as your beady little eyes staring up at Noknowledge.

            real sweet danny boy.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    This just shows that Nintendo isn’t a god among gaming. I agree with John that they should have bought it off, it would have been cheap. They honestly thought they could throw their weight around and just snatch it away? Quite ignorant. Just like they tried to steal money from content creators for let’s plays of their games on youtube. Nintendo realized that people could just stop uploading videos and they’d get nothing out of it and lose important advertising of the Wii U or even 3Ds.

    I guess that’s what’s going on with Wii U’s poor sales so to speak. True, they don’t have many games of their own, but maybe it’s also because people are catching on and refuse to settle for shovelware games and cheap ports? I’d say so.

    • Unimportant Bystander

      Well first of all Nintendo wasn’t a god of gaming in the first place, more like the veterans among gaming (In my opinion). Anyway when Nintendo thought of the name for Wii U they though about the first Wii which sounds like WE, then they thought about bringing the focus to YOU so they named it Wii U. Not a bad name but not so great either. To counteract that you can call it Wii Ultra Super Wii just like they do in Japan for some reason. Also Microsoft is also at fault for calling the new xbox the Xbox One which can confuse the consumer mass (casuals). Also they removed taking revenue from let’s plays so it’s back to normal again NINTENDO IS NOT TAKING MONEY OFF OF PEOPLES LETS PLAYS ANYMORE. Also cheap ports were both Nintendo’s and the developers faults. Nintendo for not advertising the Wii U to get enough exposure and the developers for not giving enough effort to make the game any better.

      • Shaise

        Nintendo is the reason that the console market still exists & we made it to the 8th gen

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          No, Sony had a hand in that as well. Nintendo isn’t any savior.

          • Shaise

            No they certainly did not, I’m talking in 1983 when the video game crash happened, because of atari ET game, it seemed as if the 3rd gen would never happen, however Nintendo then came out with the NES in 1985, with games people liked, which then revived the market & began the 3rd gen, sony only got into the market in 1995

          • YouAreStupid

            You have to understand that Sony fans don’t know the gaming industry existed before the 1990s.

          • Shaise

            Yeah because apparently they keep saying, stop living in the past, well history is what made things up we know today

          • YouAreStupid

            Sony has not had a hand in it. I own both the Playstation 2 and 3, and I can guarantee you that neither of those consoles were good, nor do they have any games. All they sell is garbage that appeals to the dumb.

            Now watch as the dumb start throwing out lists of the garbage they like.

          • sdmac200600

            Someone didn’t pick up KH 1 and 2 for their PS2

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            My thoughts exactly. Those were some great games even if I wasn’t a total fan of them.

          • sdmac200600

            Yeah I don’t see how anyone can say KH 1 and 2 were garbage. Also, I’m sure the PS2 didn’t become the highest selling video game console (I know the DS passed it in sales but I’m talking consoles only) in history by having “garbage games”

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. That’s quite impressive “garbage” to sell that much. I guess garbage games are the new awesome in gaming. All gamers need to respect that not everyone sees what they like as awesome. Not even Nintendo games. Even Nintendo has had plenty of hit and misses.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            That was the most idiotic comment I’ve ever heard anyone say. So games that Sony makes are dumb and garbage? Believe it or not, a lot of those Sony fans were at one time a Nintendo fan or even a Sega fan. A lot them grew out of Nintendo and moved on to Sony, Microsoft and Sega at the time. You really should think about what you say before you put it into words on here.

            Nintendo games can be said to be just as dumb or dull. You got three dislikes for a reason. Not because of your opinion, but the reason that you spew out garbage and try to think it’s some kind of fact. I guess your username needs some editing.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        I already know about the let’s play fiasco. I don’t need to be informed of that as I already made that clear. Putting it in capslock doesn’t make it important.

        • Unimportant Bystander

          Oh well at least you understand the situation. By the way I have faith that the Wii U will become successful this year with the 1st party titles that’s coming out periodically each month (did you notice that?) I barely noticed it…….

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I noticed, but that doesn’t mean it’ll get them out of trouble. Until I see some improvement, then I’ll back off them a little.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Forgive me if what I’m about to say is going to offend you but I have more likely noticed that your criticism over Nintendo leaves an atmosphere of hopelessness and and pessimism. As if you have no hope of Nintendo ever getting themselves back afoot.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Not at all. I’ve stated that I do like the new Smash Bros game and Mario Kart 8 looked decent enough. So no, you don’t offend me, but I will fight back with those who just spew out bs just because I don’t fully praise Nintendo. I see hope for them, but they need to change, even if it’s a little one.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Oh ok I know that not all of us would agree in one thing but at least there is a good reasoning. Hopefully Nintendo will see the mistakes in their ways and learn from it. Just like Sony did from the PS3.

          • NkoSekirei

            heres a thing u or any other person complain that nintendo cant retain sites but microsoft especially them have done far worse then wat nintendo has done wen it comes to forcing owner of those sites to shut down or sell them

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Don’t put me in with the rest of them as I never stated that Microsoft and Sony doesn’t do no wrong. I have on plenty of other sites besides this such as GameInformer.

            Before you say me, you should at least do research and not just assume that I’m one of those people.

        • Unimportant Bystander

          August 4 : Pikmin
          Spetember 15 : Wonderful 101
          October : Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD
          November : Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
          December : Super Mario 3D World, Wii Fit U
          Spring 2014 : Mario Cart 8 (Possibly at April)
          Q4 of 2013 : Sonic Lost World, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winder Games
          The rest of 2014 : Yarn Yoshi, Monolith Soft’s X, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

          That’s most of the 1ST PARTY TITLES and some 2nd party titles coming out this year and the next. That’s not even including the 3rd party titles.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            There is little to none, and that is the problem. Even 1st party is slow coming in.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            As little as you think it is, did you ever consider the quality of these titles? They aren’t your usual fps games have crowded themselves underneath Sony and Microsoft’s hoods.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Despite the quality, they should have had some of these game done before the launch of the Wii U. That is a fact. It doesn’t matter on the quality. If that was the problem, then maybe the Wii U should have launch this coming holiday rather than last year.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Yes, and Iwata also said that they underestimated the development of hd games, and said that they will increase their staff to make sure that they can work on them faster and work on multiple games at once. As I said again however, hopefully this games would help Wii U’s sales.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I guess we’ll see, huh?

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Most of the games that are mentioned are big sellers. As long as there is enough of these titles it’ll sell enough units for devs to reconsider.

          • ICHI

            There is enough for me in that list to possibly find a gem or two. Honestly in a generation how many games do you find which you’ll remember forever, cause for me it seems to be around 5 or 6 per console? If Bayonetta 2 is up to the standard of Bayonetta 1 then thats at least 1 new game for the Wii U I wont be forgetting. Putting a lot of hope in Pikmin and X at the min too.

          • John Raybell

            yeah thats because there really arent any third party titles pretty much.

            pikmin=another milk
            101=very very very short, could still be neat for $19 when its used
            Zelda wind waker=a fucking remake, nothing new to see here
            Donkey kong= meh played the wii one and the 3ds one, ill get it, but very very meh for retro

            Super mario 3d world=a 3ds ripoff, might as well have been a 3ds port!

            Mario Cart 8=more of the same, but doesn’t look bad at all. graphics wise better then anything nintendo has done on the wiiu.

            X looks awesome, saldy the best looking wiiu title

            The issue here is most of this crap is repeats and milks
            Tiny list also, very small, hardly a few months of titles there, unless you like to replay those same games over and over and over like I dont. games now days dont have much for replay and get old very very very fast, tons of first party nintendo titles are like this, sadly but Nintendo reminds me of Activision allot these days milk milk milk milk milk milk milk milk milk

          • Lord Carlisle

            Pikmin is not, by any means, a milked series. This is only the third game, and a new Pikmin game hasn’t been released since the gamecube era.

          • Unimportant Bystander

            Unfortunately most of the games don’t appeal to you. Fortunately there are many other people out there who are not picky and just play games for the fun of it. Also if you’ve done your research most of these first party titles come out once every new console cycle.

          • John Raybell

            they use to appeal to me, but years after playing this same stuff, its tiresome, been playing nintendo titles since the nes.

            Nintendo has an issue of showing old fans the support they want, people like me helped nintendo get to where they are today, and yet the new kids get the games made and catered for them.

            What about the people who grew up?????

            Our games never grew up with us, nothing nintendo did was for the ones who grew up, its a market they aren’t even in, more and more and dont appeal to “Everyone” and this is a huge business mistake on there part, they left us out in the cold YEARS ago. and they dont care either

    • YouAreStupid

      Steal money from creators of let’s plays? Nobody should be making money from doing let’s plays in the first place.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Says you. Most of these let’s play content creators don’t make really that much to begin with and only a handful make more. Even so, the fact that they more or less advertise these games in a sense makes it pretty fair considering they buy their games just to do them.

      • Newness

        Yeah I found it pretty odd that people make money by simply playing an discussing another persons work.. Nintendo was right to have done that. Nobody should be making money of their hard work. Too many leaches out in the world now trying to ride another persons coat tail to make profits

        You can disagree with my opinions all you like, I’m all for free speech, seems like you don’t like it. My attitude is just fine, the fact that you say I suck just shows yours does. I never insulted you, you did. Nice job acting like every other mindless fanboy I’ve come across. Try having a fair argument rather than subpar posts.

        • ranjeybaby

          claim you don’t insult peopl, when a large percentage of your posts refer to people as being idiotic or dumb, also called someone a retard and in this comment you call the guy a mindless fanboy, if you think that this makes your attitude ‘fine’ then you are mistaken, and to think in another post you called someone a hypocrite. lol gj bro

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Probably, because…..I don’t know, they throw them at me first? Hmmm….yeah, that is obviously it. Good job for not seeing it both ways bro.

            I only insult those who insult me first. You go into comments and there are a good handful of people who responded to me with disagreements and were calm about it and did I insult them? No. Get a clue.

          • John Raybell

            um,but most people are idiotic or dumb, and there are tons of people on here that need called a retard, and there are tons of mindless fanboys on here.

          Like I said before, these people in here have some major issues, and most of the time you are talking to a little kid in here, which is another issue with this site, bunch of fanboy babies, most likely still is elementary school. Also if thats the case, those wouldn’t be tired of nintendo titles as they are still new to them and the wii being there first console and all. They dont understand that we have been givin the same crap for over 20 years.

          We understand that because we have been around, play everyone of there consoles ever made, I grew up with nes when it first came out, was born in 1986 and I very much so agree with you, Mario is getting old, among tons of there other franchises.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            True Story. I was born in 1981 here.

    • YouAreStupid

      I find it bizarre that you talk the types of games coming out. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V is about to come out, and for some reason, it’s going to be big. It’s a horrible game series and none of them have been good, yet it’s going on five games now, and will probably have six be put into production immediately after release.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        You can call it what you like but the fact that remains is that 20-25 million people will say otherwise. Call it what you wish, but the reality is that it’s one of the best games of all time, just not to “your” standards.

        You can critique it all you like, but actually have facts to back up why cause you showed me none. I at least made points on why Mario and Pokemon are getting old. GTA games are at least not made annually like CoD or even a shit ton of Mario IP’s everywhere.

        • Link Slayer

          lol Mario has become quarterly

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Mario has just become dull That’s mostly from the constant releases of games in his name.

        • ICHI

          Oh I used to love GTA I’m a bit wary of V due to how laborious it got driving your cousin around while pissed or keeping up appearances with your ma over email in GTA 4. Those parts of the game were total dick and it made me stop playing before the end as I just wanted to play multiplayer to mess about. I know that portion will be good at least (if Max Payne 3 was anything to go by)

          Ah don’t hate on Mario, if its not for you ignore it, arguing over whose value in their game is worth more is a little pathetic. I like the Mario games I like and for me I can ignore party, tennis, golf etc Just stick with racing or platformers, but Nintendo are doing what they know will sell to try and increase product awareness. If Nintendo never innovated with a few games here and there then there would be a problem. A lot of people hate on them for releasing so many similar things but then how many devs release that many games in a year, up to that standard? I know they hire in other folk to pull it off, and I like the fact they have a level of quality which is almost always met with positive results. Playing on these names helped the 3DS and Ninty think they can do it again, I hope so cause a little breathing room for them will mean the more inventive games will come :)

          keep in mind, most of these people here have issues.

          You are right, mario is getting old, among many many other nintendo titles.

          I have been a nintendo gamer for 27 years, and let me tell ya, they are getting old.

          Almost never a new ip, and they milk the shit out of there games.

          When the first NSMB game came out on the wii, I knew we were all in trouble.

          Sadly but they have just repeated what they do with every console, same games, just upgrades, and then this new mario game seems like a major down grade to the full title galaxy was.

          I like nintendo, but holy crap im tired of the same titles over and over and over. god damn cookie cutter crap.

          Hell a full title NSMB game should never release for any more then $20 and should only be an arcadeeshop title.

          They have been taking a shit on pretty much all of there franchises lately.

          And they also dont give a shit about the ones who brought them to where they are, THE NES GAMERS, they forgot about us a long time ago!

          Also I would like to see nintendo make games for ALL not just the younger crowds, I would love to see some major titles that can compete against some of the new IPs that Sony and Microsoft has.

          Something new needs to happen, i will get all the recently announced games but will still be disappointed in them, just for the fact they are remakes, nothing new, more milk milk milk.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I know how that is. While they’re fun and we remember them well, the adult in us knows that they’re just the same games over 20 years ago, just upgraded like you said. I don’t think Nintendo will ever grow up like their NES gamers of the past.

            Nintendo had it all years back, but they took a step back and never went foward again. I agree to, Super Mario 3D World is a port from the 3DS basically. That’s Nintendo for you, stuck in time.

      • oontz

        “It’s a horrible game series and none of them have been good”
        ha ha ha you keep telling yourself that while GTA games sit as some of the highest rated games of all time. I’m sure rockstar is not missing your $59.99usd one bit.

        • YouAreStupid

          Highest rated game? That doesn’t mean good. That could mean they bribe the reviewers. That could mean the reviewers are complete morons who would give good reviews to Call of Duty games. That could mean that the reviewers know the general public (retarded people like oontz) will like it no matter what, and they don’t want to upset them. Plenty of reasons why it gets high ratings. Ratings don’t mean anything when the people who give them are complete idiots.

          If you were smart you’d understand that.

          • oontz

            Wow I think you may have had a Freudian slip when choosing your screen name because ironically “you are stupid”

            Lets see… GTA IV on Metacritic scored 98 out of 100. (Metacritic takes all the reviews from around the world and averages them out to get the final score.) So from 64 reviews the average was 98%. Do you really think that Rockstar paid off 64 different companies/reviewers to give a good review of their game?

            Further more you’re basically saying those 64 reviewers are complete idiots? right?

            Does this only apply to non Nintendo games? Or are the same people STILL idiots when they review those and score them high?

          • YouAreStupid

            I don’t believe those 64 reviewers are all idiots. Probably about 55 of them are. The rest is spread out from being paid to give good reviews, or people who are afraid to give good reviews to games that people will threaten to kill the critics over giving bad reviews to. The game deserve something around the area of 3 out of 100. But yeah, not all of them are idiots. Just most of them.

            This only applies to crappy games.

            Grand Theft Auto
            Battlefield
            Devil May Cry
            Call of Duty
            Infamous
            Saints Row
            The Last of Us
            Tomb Raider
            and others for example….

            Crappy games that idiots like. The kind of people who judge quality based on sales and what other idiots say about the game.

  • Madmagican

    huh, that’s different…
    oh well, they’re still advertising Wii U

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      The fans advertise more than Nintendo themselves.

      • John Raybell

        Yeah its true, and not only that, the fans do a better job of advertising then nintendo does, not just more

        In fact nintendo ads suck pretty bad, dont do justice for this console at all!

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Can’t argue with that.

  • Gabe Hoffman

    How is this news?

  • iceazeama

    nintendo……. you are such cheap bastards, who lie and are selfish to even fans, they are just becoming worse, who would have thought they would become any worse.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I don’t know about worse, but they sure aren’t doing themselves any justice.

  • greengecko007

    Microsoft tries to obtain domains for stuff like Xboxone.com, and everybody loses their minds saying bullcrap like Microsoft should have come up with a better name, or checked to see the domains first, etc.

    But when Nintendo tries to obtain a domain for WiiU.com, nobody bats an eye or cares at all?

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Yeah, that’s how land of Nintendo is right now. It is called Wii U Daily for a reason, so Nintendo fans will defend anything Nintendo does, the mindless ones at least.

    • Newness

      Nintendo catches way more criticism than Microsoft. And undeservingly so. Nintendo is way more creative than the Halobox. I loved the original Halo but they have ruined the franchise. Same for Gears and Fable. Microsoft doesn’t really care about games it’s ALL about the money. Nintendo obviously wants to make money too but those guys love the industry. Look at how Shigeru, or even Reggie act. They care about games not only $

      • greengecko007

        It’s impossible to say which company gets more criticism. It should make sense to you that ALL companies receive criticism in some way, but that’s not really relevant to the point.

        The point is that so many people (Nintendo fanboys) have double standards.

        It’s ok for Nintendo to try and obtain revenue from let’s play videos, but people on Wii U daily go up in arms about the Nyan Cat creator filing a lawsuit because the creators of the new Scribblenauts game used Nyan Cat without permission or licensing.

        When Nintendo only makes minor but necessary adjustments to a game, people exclaim how the game is staying true to the series. But when other games like Uncharted, CoD, GoW, Assassin’s Creed, and other games only add the necessary adjustments to improve the game, Nintendo fanboys slam the games as “rehash”.

        The first Halo has a special place in my heart too. But Bungie ruined the franchise? I, and 8 million other players disagree.

        • Newness

          You make tons of stereotypes.. Nintendo fanboys have double standards? Don’t a lot of fanboys period have double standards? How about the fact that Sony and Microsoft have also been in similar situations as Nintendo is with the Wii U but that was never turned into the craze that is the Wii U’s struggles. I don’t recall ever complaining about Scribblenauts…
          A lot of companies get crap about ‘rehash’ including Nintendo. Other fanboys tend to be more crazy with their approach. I always see Xbox fanboys on Nintendo articles screaming doom but I really don’t see Nintendo fanboys on the other forums usually..
          I was also under the impression Bungie no longer handles Halo. And obviously my believing halo is ruined is my opinion so you’re free to disagree but I do feel its lost the charm it once had and while not everyone will agree with me on that there are tons that do.

          Thanks for a debate without name callin btw. Respect

          • greengecko007

            First and foremost, I have to address this, even though it was at the tail end of your reply.

            “Thanks for a debate without name callin btw. Respect”

            I’m not sure if this is sincere or sarcastic, but I did think that I should point out that nowhere in my post did I call you any sort of negative name.

            Anyways, fanboys of all kind are bad. They are the blind people that follow their fandom to no end. I know that there are Microsoft fanboys, Sony fanboys, Nintendo fanboys, and of course, the PC fanboys. But do I really need to address this? The point of my comment is that Nintendo fanboys on this site are holding double standards. There is something to be said for upholding relevance.

            “How about the fact that Sony and Microsoft have also been in similar situations as Nintendo is with the Wii U but that was never turned into the craze that is the Wii U’s struggles.”

            Microsoft’s former policy on used game DRM gaining massive publicity outside of the gaming industry disagrees. Microsoft has been under press scrutiny the most recently. The average person doesn’t care if the Wii U is or isn’t failing. They probably don’t even know it exists.

            “I was also under the impression Bungie no longer handles Halo.”

            They didn’t make Halo 4, and it is unknown who is working on the next console game. But again, that is unrelated to the point.

          • Newness

            It was actually sincere. You made a strong argument but kept cool in terms of not being disrespectful. A rarity.

            A far as the double standards comment I just find that on a lot of sites fanboys of all company’s hold double standards. Go check out a Xbox page, there’s a ton of double standard as well. Same for playstation.

            I’ve owned every game system so I do give everyone a shot. I just find that Microsofts systems aren’t for me. I also grew tired of all the hardware issues. I have a screwed up 360 collecting dust as we speak. Some people had few or no hardware failures I know but personally I had bad luck with them.

            I currently play PS3, Vita (another hated system I enjoy), 3DS and Wii U. So I wouldn’t pin myself as a fanboy but Nintendo has been around for a while and I think it’s wild every generation they’re said to be doomed..

          • greengecko007

            Sincerity in statements like that is also rare. It’s laughable how many people think that sarcasm is conveyed well in text.

            There’s no doubt that fanboys hold double standards. I completely agree with you. It’s just that I was addressing the issue at hand, being the people on this site.

            “So I wouldn’t pin myself as a fanboy but Nintendo has been around for a while and I think it’s wild every generation they’re said to be doomed..”

            You don’t come across as a fanboy. As for the “Nintendo console is doomed!”. Yeah, it happens every generation, and with almost every console. Last generation, there were fanboys on all sides saying the Wii would fail because it was a gimmick, the PS3 would fail because it was expensive, the Xbox 360 would fail because Microsoft wasn’t nearly as established with videogames. The reality of course is that the last generation was the best ever. All 3 major companies made money, and it was the longest lasting generation for the video game industry.

          • Newness

            Yeah this past generation was great. I’m wondering if MS and Sony will see any struggles similar to the Wii U. The economy has changed and people are fairly frugal with their money. Even if not to the extent of the Wii U I think they’ll have some rough patches. There are some solid looking games coming though.
            I had a buddy at work I told him about the Wii U and he thought it was a peripheral.. I believe THAT is the biggest issue. Nintendo hasn’t done well advertising. Once people start realizing it exists I think itll sell respectfully.
            I think it’s a way better console than the Wii ever was. The Wii may be my least favorite Nintendo console. But the masses disagree and it sold like Hallucinogens at a Rave.

      • oontz

        Wow you really are blind… they run a company the goal of any company including NIntendo is to MAKE MONEY! Of course Reggie cares about money, he doesn’t work for free!

        • Newness

          Didn’t I state that I’m aware they’re wanting to make money? I said obviously they want to make money but you can tell they’re passionate. Those guys get excited about their products. I don’t think you read the whole statement man.

          • oontz

            You can’t make a blanket statement like that assuming Nintendo are the only game developers that are passionate about gaming. TONs of developers are. At the end of the day profit drives Nintendo and every other company. They don’t give away their system for free do they?

          • Newness

            I can’t? Yep I can and I just did.
            I think that’s part of what gets Nintendo in trouble sometimes is they think as fans at times and don’t always make the best business decision. I didn’t say there’s absolutely nobody else passionate its just they always seem to have a good time with their work. The Sony and MS bigwigs tend to be very businesslike all the time. Once again, read my original statement. I made it clear I know they care about $ too. But if you choose to ignore half of what I said you can make my statement mean whatever you want. I never said they give things away for free.. Putting words in my mouth again…
            Should probably end this convo because you’re bound to say I said something else I didn’t. I stand by my statement because history supports it. Disagree if you will but because you have a different opinion doesn’t mean I’ll change my mind.
            That’s how I see it.

          • oontz

            How is me asking you a question = putting words in your mouth?

          • Newness

            You keep making comments as if I believe they don’t want $ when I acknowledged from the get go they do. And why would I think they give their systems away for free

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            No one here told you to, only to respect ours. It would be nice if everyone on this site did, but naturally that’s a longshot.

    • ICHI

      you mean 1-2 years it often happens with new consoles, when PS3 was released only Motorstorm actually got any action for the first 18months, the rest of it was shoite!

      • John Raybell

        I think he and many others forget the wiiu hasn’t even been out for a year yet.

        • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

          No kidding right.. 7-8 months in and I see people posting the Wii U is over a year old and when you correct them they say “close enough” How are they going to be when they get their new shiny XB One and the new Halo does not come out for over a year, or if there is not a God of War at the PS4 launch…

          Sure the game delays are painful but I hope they are behind Nintendo and it seems they are for the most part as I suspect the games will be coming more steadily from now on.

          • Link Slayer

            we were soposed to have Pikmin, 101, and Rayman by now. But Nintendo has pushed them back to far. Rayman was done but ubisoft realized they wont make no money on it so went multiplat

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            That is partially the reason Ubisoft decided to may Rayman Multiplatform but the game was delayed because if it goes to the other platforms there is some contract rule with Microsoft that if a game is multiplatform it cannot be released earlier on other consoles. Ubisoft also added lots of content to the game.

            Nintendo’s own game delays are unfortunate and the fault of Nintendo which they full admit but please do not act as they are the first to have major game delays. So while were SUPPOSED to have those games by now it is not the end world.

          • Link Slayer

            Nintendo shouldn’t have launched there system when they did. They really pretty much screwed Nintendo fans. By the time the good games come it will be cheaper. I feel ripped. They should have really waited until they knew there games were closer to the release of the console. There really getting stupid. They were soposed to learn from there mistakes! THEY DIDNT! Not yelling at you i’m yelling at Nintendo. Its not the end of the world by no means but if Nintendo dont do something quick its the end of them. I can say If Wii fit U dont sell to the casual fans there screwed

          • david jarman

            I guess you don’t remember ps3 or Xbox 360
            Both had a horrible dry spell on their launches.
            For the ps3, other then restistance, it was mostly ps2 ports and took over a year to get games that actually showed what it could do.
            Same with Xbox 360.

          • https://www.facebook.com/BlueLightningTechnicalServices Bob Wilkerson

            If you feel ripped then you should really never buy a new console within the launch window. I cannot really think of a new console where it didn’t take a year or more to get a nice library of games.

    Rule 1: buy your web domain before you reveal any important trademark names. Thing is, Nintendo was thinking in Japanese, and thus failed to get this done. They probably already had the Japanese equivalent at the time.

    not really, everyone is trying to figure everything out, e3 sucked for microsoft because of the choices they made, sony claims you get a better deal with playstation even know they removed the cam from that package so they could be cheaper.

    fact is everyone is making poor choices this gen.

    Man why are you still here, you gotta be autistic or something.

    I just cant imagine someone without mental issues doing what you do.

    Shit you live on here to bash nintendo, its retarded, how about go to a ps or xbox page and be happy there?

  • david jarman

    That’s why both those companies bled more money then made and it took them about 6 years to start making money through software sales.

  • ICHI

    E3 was disappointing at first and I thought Sony did probably the best in that I was expecting a massively overpriced machine with nothing impressive on show as far as games went, then they went and showed a reasonable price point!
    Games on all sides were a little limp at first as we knew about so much of what Nintendo showed but then looking back over the videos and watching gameplay sessions, Nintys games are looking incredible, the least said about MS the better and Sony still just have an awesome price point.

  • Rick van der Linde

    MS knows that they are doing? So that’s why they suddenly reverted everything they stand for, because they knew what they where doing. Now Sony, Sony knows what they are doing, they are kicking some MS ass.

  • david jarman

    Actually, I just read that the camera had an impact on a lot of the launch games due to controller losing a functionality.

  • John Raybell

    first off, i state issues when they need to be stated, weather it be xbox or sony or nintendo, no one is perfect.

    What I dont do is go to xbox daily and bash the fuck out of the console.

    I have a wiiu, xbox360,3ds,ipod,pc,wii and on and on and on, im not an agent or a fan boy.

    I have posted many negative things about nintendo, and positive things, i dont go out of my way to attack Sony or micro, nor do i suck Nintendo’s dick.

    I rarely bring up sony and Microsoft here, because well its WIIUDAILY.

    The fact that you are here and do what you do shows you have serious mental issues and im not even kidding at all, i really think something is very wrong with your brain.

    There is no fair in this, hes a fucking horrible troll with no life what so ever.

  • John Raybell

    no functionality was lost with the PS4, its only lost if you dont buy a camera :), meaning nothing has changed, still going to use move, and the camera, and controller with move stuff like has been said.

  • david jarman

    That’s if you buy the camera.

    um, right, didnt i make that clear with saying its only lost if you dont buy a camera. how else would the controller stuff? lol

    Just reiterating it.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    He does bring up a lot of good points about Nintendo though, only he comes on too strong. I can’t speak if he has mental issues as I don’t know the guy in real life. I only go by what I see.

    I usually just talk to him like I talk to everyone else. Flaming him to hell and back won’t get through to him. I get where he’s coming from but yeah, he could learn to ease down a bit. However, I can’t blame him for the mindless fanboys on this site as they usually have it coming often. If you know what I mean.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    BDA owns Blu Ray actually, not Sony, they’re just investors along with several other companies. Sony just brought it to the mainstream. I suppose you can call them partial owners in a sense, but they’re certainly not “the” owners, but they are huge supporters for sure.

  • david jarman

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for Sony and ps4, but until the console actually launch we don’t know for sure because pre-orders in all honesty don’t mean anything cause people cancel and a lot of online stores and just regular a**holes buy up a lot of them to mark up the price that end up getting shipped back or sitting in inventory.
    Edit:
    Sorry for the over use of “don’t get me wrong”

Do we really need two? No! Even better question! Do we really need any of them? No! But we love them cause gaming is suppose to be fun. Why can’t you just fun with your system and let us have fun with ours.
    Good day!

    the man just said that he likes several different consoles and what not. a lot of nintendo fans are also sony, they grew up with both pretty much.

    also you didnt deny the mental disability accusations, funny.

    as far as people getting bent out of shape. you are the main one that bitches and gripes about nintendo on this website.

    in the end, you’ll be okay. you’ll live, and nintendo will probably be taking your money. you will find yourself buying a wiiu in 2014 or 2015.

    then you can vent all your hatred towards turning other players into tiny little stars on SMB4 when it comes out.

    until then, its obvious that your body is not ready.

    all thats left is for your balls to drop.

  • Akatosh

    You’re taking your hate for Nintendo just a little too seriously. Might I point that out. If you’re willing to go on a fan site and troll.

  • BLACKendTiamat

    everyones on the payroll today huh?

    you must have forgotten to take your medication today.

    you mad bro?

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Or at the very least, not go into EA territory.

  • BLACKendTiamat

    Churning the gravy? yeeeuh you are.

  • BLACKendTiamat

    no, but i was talking to you.

    to the 2 question- females.

    calm down NOknowledge. you’ll be okay. at least God still loves you.

    oh i better be careful now! treading on dangerous waters with these opinions of mine.

  • BLACKendTiamat

    have a mirror nearby? look into it. stare at yourself for a solid… 2 minutes (just to be sure.)

    do you see the douche that everyone else sees?

    you should, Cocklick.

    that means you lick cock.

    danny boys to be more precise.

    edit* danny boy actually licks yours. my bad! dont want to go spreading lies around now do i?

    I find it funny that people say me or knowledge run their mouths often, yet you run yours like there’s no tomorrow. Btw, by your logic, the fact that you comment on our comments makes them more credible than yours, that goes even for maturity.

    You mad bro? Why so angry? Did your mom take away your Wii or Wii U again? While Knowledge shows some aggression, he makes good points, in which you fail to see. This comment section is meant for opinions, so should he or I just say things to make Nintendo fans like you happy? No thanks, that’d be too easy and redundant. Just like your bad sense of humor. Of course trolls lack that too.

    I may criticize, but at least I can be civil. It doesn’t come naturally to you. You mad that I can actually speak my mind freely and still get along with most people on here? Seems so. Ahh well, you lost the internet today. I may be an asshole at times, but at least I keep it real and not go around on comments and blatantly attack opinions.

    That is all. Go back to your trolling. I expect it as much. :)

  • BLACKendTiamat

    i stopped reading after the first sentence.

    because you know, im so immature and lack any train of thought. *rolls eyes*

    to answer your question- no, you guys dont run your mouth, thats impossible considering you both spew crap out of them constantly.

    you state the obvious, over and over again. we all know nintendo needs to turn certain aspects of the wii u around (games mainly.) it just so happens that people are more patient than others. which is a good trait to have.

    but ill admit, youre not as bad as Noknowledge. ill give you that much.

    Doom and Gloom is getting old. a lot of people on this site have read through all his negativity and retaliate so. for something they like, and love.

    im not a nintendo fan boy neither. i would buy all 3 if theyre worth it. like i did last gen. nice try with passing judgment though. TRY harder.
    ———————————————————————–

    and, was i trolling? didnt we have a discussion on what trolling is? have i tried to convince you of something otherwise?
    Im a troll feeding off trolls is all. and just like you say im a troll, i have made the conclusion that you, are also a troll. i won this argument newb. just by the fact that you called me a troll. thank you. i am full.

    NOM NOM NOM.

    oh yeah,
    IMO

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I stopped reading the rest of your comment after the first sentence as well. You’re immauture? About time we agree with something.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    You actually had one? I don’t think telling someone to suck dick an opinion, sounds more like you’re either homophobic, or covering up your insecurities on your sexuality. Stick to video game topics. I talk video games and lay out what I think, you like any other typical troll I’ve seen using sexual insults to defend your arguments. The fact that you keep commenting on it shows you’re that bored or just mad that we’re criticizing your favorite company of choice.

    Are you mad bro? Sure sounds like it.Otherwise, you wouldn’t feel the need to comment each time, especially ones that weren’t directed at you. Why so mad? :)
