Happy New Year from Wii U Daily!

General-Luigi-Masthead-e1364200242526

Over the past year we’ve had our share of amazing stories, from the announcement of the Year of Luigi to covering the many Nintendo Directs that have taken place over the year. We’ve covered them all for you and we look forward to another year of bringing you the hottest Nintendo, Wii U, and 3DS news as we move into 2014.

It’s customary to make new year’s resolutions, so we here at Wii U Daily are asking the community, what are your gaming resolutions for next year? Do you plan on picking up any Wii U games you may have missed out on this year? Will you finally take the plunge and get a Nintendo 3DS XL? We’re eager to hear what Nintendo fans around the globe are resolving to do for the 2014 year.

Be safe and have a happy new year!

  • Ducked

    “Happy New Year”. Whoa, “New Year” offends me. Can you say Happy Holidays or 2014 Greetings

    • RockieOllie

      “New Year” offends you??
      I’m guessing you follow a different calendar???

      I hope with the release of Dr. Luigi we can being the Year of another Nintendo character…hope its Yoshi!

      • RoboticLink

        I hope it’s Link!!!! (fingers crossed for Zelda HD)

        • David Horowitz

          They’re showing it off for the first time at E3 this year. They WERE going to do it at Comic Con, but they were too occupied showing off A Link to the Past.

      • Ducked

        I’m teasing people who are offended by Merry Christmas lol :p

        • RockieOllie

          Lol, people these days

        • Steve

          Hahaha! I love hearing these morons complain about everything each year. When are they going to realize that it is impossible to please everybody. There is always a group that will disapprove what you say or do, no matter how careful you are.

          To anyone offended by the term “Christmas”: suck it up and move on. No one is forcing you to celebrate their way. Don’t like how they do something? Don’t take part in it… That simple! Don’t make it anymore complicated than what it really is. Lol

          • Laud

            You totally just made it complicated by acknowledging them though. :O

          • Steve

            Well, lol.

          • Ducked

            Well put Steve, and that’s not sarcasm lol

        • Rinslowe

          That’s one of those concepts that just seem like….What?
          People are actually offended by Merry Christmas – LOL.
          :P

      • Arthur Jarret

        It’s likely to be Yoshi… seeing he’ll be in mario kart, smash bros, new yoshis island will be released as well as Yoshi’s epic yarn. They can build hype for it by re-re-re-re-releasing yoshi’s island and a simple 2.5D game like yoshi’s story would be a fine start for N64 VC.

        However, yoshi will be 25 years old next year, as he debuted in Super Mario World in 1990 – so it’s possible they will wait a year for it.

        I hope they will partner with sega to make a Nintendo-exclusive ‘Year of Goldenaxe’ (which will be 25 years old this year). Of course, the Turtles videogame will also be 25 years old…

        The only Nintendo-exclusive game that’s celebrating a notable anniversary is Adventures of Lolo.
        Maybe it’ll get the Kid Icarus treatment?
        (Appearance in Smash bros. followed by a sequel game that has completely different gameplay from the original.)

        • Ducked

          I forgot to add you, what’s your Wii U username again?

          • Arthur Jarret

            Samael_blackwing – as Samael is the angel of Death in biblical texts, it’s my go-to nickname for any deathmatch-style game… it’s also my psn-ID!

          • Ducked

            Nice username. My Nintendo ID is CloudxBlade, (for Cloud Strife FF character).

          • DarkLegacy

            Nice username

          • Arthur Jarret

            Grandma, what a large key you have!

          • DarkLegacy

            I’m getting ready for the final battle against Xehanort

          • Arthur Jarret

            Don’t get your hopes up… there will be at least 35 portable spin-off games before it’s time for the final battle in the last numbered game.

          • DarkLegacy

            Lots of spin-offs. I’ll be waiting longer for KH4

          • Ducked

            Thanks, btw can you join the website?

          • DarkLegacy

            Sure. Can you send me a link please?

          • Arthur Jarret

            Grandma, what a large sword you have!

    • D.M.T

      It wasn’t meant to offend you obviously and you need to remember that this isn’t about you. If you don’t like people saying Happy New Year then ignore them and move on.

      • Ducked

        Can’t you read sarcasm? lol. It’s just a joke. Like when people get offended of Merry Christmas. See what I did there?

        • Lusunup

          You can’t actually read sarcasm its a from of verbal tone unless you typed sarcasm…

          • greengecko007

            Sarcasm is a form of irony, which happens to be often delivered through tone of voice. That being said, it is perfectly possible to convey sarcasm through text, in fact, many famous writers utilize it in literature. It’s just something not everyone knows how to do well.

            If I were to say “You’re really nice”, it would be impossible to determine if that was sarcastic.

            However, Ducked’s comment was obviously satirical irony, which can even more obviously be seen through his use of quotes.

        • D.M.T

          No it’s not possible to read sarcasm because it’s a fucking forum, it’s not possible to read sarcasm unless you write ‘sarcasm’ after your sentence.

          • David Horowitz

            “Can’t you read sarcasm”!?… Was that sentence sarcasm, too?

          • David Horowitz

            How many fingers am I holding up?

          • David Horowitz

            When writing in sarcasm, you need to be careful. People who never cuss like D.M.T. might think about it too hard.

          • Lusunup

            Calm down man :) Its a new year the matter is resolved. Now party on!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Too true.

          • Ducked

            But I made it so obvious lol :)

          • Magnus Eriksson

            12 downvotes…

          • D.M.T

            Do you really think I care about downvotes? Lol 100 people can downvote me and i still won’t care

          • Arthur Jarret

            But at 101 downvotes it all begins to fall apart…

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Not everyone understands it. Though, some just can’t handle it. :P

          • Ducked

            Only “Few Good Men” can :D

    • lonewolf88

      XD

    • DarkLegacy

      Happy New Year to you too

  • Jack5221

    Already bought a 3DS XL when Pokemon came out and I love it. My gaming resolutions would have to be finish Link Between Worlds in both Normal / Hero mode, and build a bunch of awesome teams in Pokemon and go crazy online. If you don’t already have a 3DS, go buy one! And if you have fat gorilla hands like me get an XL because the normal one is too small. xD

    As for my Wii U games, just enjoy the hell out of them. I have pretty much every game I want until DK Freeze comes out. Then I have to wait who knows how long until all the other good stuff comes out. So Im assuming I have about 2 – 5 months to really complete all my games 100% if not close to that. Just added Dr. Luigi to my collection yesterday and its amazing!

    Happy New Years everyone! 2014 is going to be a really good year for gaming regardless of what your console of choice is.

    • Steve

      I’m waiting to see if they come out with a SSB 3DS version of the XL. I still have my regular 3DS. But shoulder buttons are jammed, battery is worn out, screen is scratched, etc.

      Its pretty messed up, but it still works. Plus, I’d rather wait for a SSB version of the. XL than get a regular one. But if there is no SSB bundle, I’ll settle for the next best thing.

  • Rinslowe

    I had a pretty big night last night in Shenzhen… But thankfully as far as drinking was involved only so so… :) (Have my wife and son with me to keep me honest as well as friends – and the Wii U with SM3DW still getting daily plays between site seeing…)
    Gonna just spend a few days close to the hotel now and just eat and game, swim a bit in the indoor pool and then game some more, lol
    Happy New Year Wii U Daily and all the peeps out there!

  • brik27

    Happy new year!

  • Steven_Segal

    Just wanted to say HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!!!

    • Laud

      I hate you, you tub of lard.

      You know what I got last christmas? Two of your movies and you wanna know what I did with them? Nothing because I hate the way you’re like 60 and act like you can still do something to someone. That’s why Anderson Silva’s leg broke, because of my contempt for you, you slime ball. >=(

      Jokes aside, happy new years.

      • Steven_Segal

        What’s wrong with you? j/k

        Happy New Year to you.

  • Sdudyoy

    Happy New Year, although I’ve never seen the excitement for New Year’s, but whatever.

    • Ducked

      Neither have I, it’s just a “new” year lol. We’ve had 2014 of them

  • Gabriel Fiala

    Happy New Year to everyone who reads this!!!

  • D.M.T

    Happy New Year to all the great Nintendo fans out there.

    2014 is Nintendo’s year. It is the year that 3DS will continue to dominate and the year that Wii U will become really successful.

    • Guest

      Why the downvotes?

  • YogiGRB

    happy 2014 to all, luck, good fortune and lots of gaming pleasure

  • Skelterz

    My new year’s gaming resolution is to pick up a 3DS or 2DS of some sort at some point so i can enjoy all the fantastic games man i just wanna play chrono trigger on something other than a emu!

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    Dr Luigi came out already?

    • C4

      US eShop, yes.

  • Petri

    Finally the 2014 is here.
    I hope there’s another direct soon, detailing games for 2014, with lots of pleasant surprises, and more importantly, solid release date for Bayonetta 2.

  • Lusunup

    Im just waiting on Mononlith soft X, Yoshi Epic Yarn, Bayoetta, Super Smash bros 4, Zelda U (maybe) and Mario karts release date. No big whoop…

  • jjbredesen

    Happy new year to all of you to!!

    • DarkLegacy

      Happy New year to you too, jjbredesen :)

  • jjbredesen
  • Chong

    Happy new year ,

  • Chong

    And yes I am going to stock pile my wii u games this year I bought 8 just in the last week and going to pile up this year .love the wii u and love everything about it and everyone is going to pick up this system sooner or later and in china there is 1.4 billion people .so maybe a good portion will pick it up lol and just also to say ps4 and Xbox are both junk…..

  • Ducked

    Maybe this year will be Year of Yoshi, with Yarn Yoshi and Yoshi’s Island 3DS

    • starwars360

      Yeah and he in MK 8 and maybe Super Smash Bros too I bet he will be in.. :)

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      The year of Pachter? I know, yeah right.

      • Ducked

        Patchter for Smash Bros!

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Oh man…..that’d be hilarious. Lol.

          • Ducked

            I know right, Reggie couldn’t compete with Patchter lol

        • MujuraNoKamen

          LOL Maybe he can have his own game mode – it’s just like the sandbag game in Brawl only you get to beat up Pachter and see how far you can launch him.
          If he is a playable character his final smash can be “fanboy rant” he lectures the Nintendo characters with his groundless doom & gloom predictions. After a few seconds they just beat the crap out of him and he automatically loses every fight (as his predictions are so wrong) :D

          • Ducked

            Nice idea, he could also be a punching bag in Boxing in Wii Sports Club

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    HAPPY 2014

  • wiimenonowiiu

    Happy new year lots of new gamed yo play this year

  • andrewjcole

    Got SM3DW yesterday as a late Christmas gift, played from 6 to midnight. Today I’ve played from10am to 1am. Hardly looked at any family. That’s what it’s about, right.

    • Steve

      I needed a break from college work. So, when I got 3D World, I played from 8AM to 10PM no breaks, except for food and bathroom.

      • andrewjcole

        Adda boy!

  • David Horowitz

    So I guess the Year of Luigi is finally over… Right?

    • David Horowitz

      Will a new character replace Luigi for 2014? What they did with Luigi in 2013 was unique; they didn’t always do that.

      • Jeffery02

        I believe that Nintendo is continuing the Year of Luigi into 2014. There wasn’t enough Luigi to fit into 2013. Lol! They had to extend it.

      • C4

        I hope not to be honest. LM2 and NSLU are fine but the other YotL themed games? It feels unneccessary. They can do Luigi games and content every year if they want to.

        Same goes for Yoshi as someone mentioned him. 2 games and (I hope!) multiple colored Yoshis in MK will be fine for me, don’t need a year of X.

  • Mario

    Happy new year everyone! My new year resolution for video games is to obtain, for the Wii U, Mario kart 8 and Super smash bros for the Wii U, and for the 3DS, Pokemon X or Y and Super smash bros for the 3DS.

  • Kirbyomega

    Happy New Weegee!

    Gonna be a great year for Nintendo and a bad year for my wallet

  • Flawless Victory

    Happy New Year! (2014 Edition)

  • Jeffery02

    To be honest, a little over a year ago I got the Wii U day one on a gamble. I was a day one owner of a 3DS and, at the time of the Wii U launch, it was really starting to gain momentum. This gave me high hopes for the Wii U, but I was also scared. The Wii U was much more than we needed but still less than what we wanted (we, as in consumers).

    With the ever looming launch of the PS4 and Xbone hovering over me, I was worried that the classic nintendoom we always see would be the strongest on the Wii U, and it was. How could a bashed system compete with the mythical systems that everyone was placing on these unreachable pedestals? Even now the Wii U is suffering from that situation. If the PS4 and Xbone THEMSELVES couldn’t live up to what consumers thought they were going to be, how could anyone give the Wii U a chance?

    As of today though, the Wii U has been out for a full year and the PS4 and Xbone now have a tangible limited product out there for people to play. The hype of these “mythical” super-consoles is calming down. All of the games to play this gen are on the Wii U at the moment. Hearing that the Wii U numbers are even competition for the Xbone makes me feel that the Wii U is getting it’s bounce back sooner than the 3DS did and I am STILL proud to call myself a Nintendo fan. The Wii U may have more competition than the 3DS did, and probably see less success, but it will hold its own just fine. Xbone and PS4 fans alike will have a Wii U just for the experiences that only Nintendo can offer.

    This is the year that the Wii U will become a great console. It will be proof, yet again, that hardware alone does not make a great system. One day I may get a PS4 but this year will be MY year…of the Wii U.

      Thanks for the nightmares!! :D

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    Happy new year everyone. What am I looking forward to most this year, or so called new year resolutions (I never have new year resolutions as I make them in the last week of the year, not on the 1st if any resolutions at all) For me I’ll suppose I’ll hop onboard of the U train. Bayonetta 2, and Monoliths X must haves, probably smash brothers too and hopefully MH4 on 3DS is what I’m looking forward to in 2014.

  • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

    Happy new year Wiiudaily!, can’t wait for january direct ;)

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! :D

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Happy New Year to WiiUDaily and to the commentators. Here’s hoping for a good year in gaming and in everyones lives. :)

  • DarkLegacy

    Happy New Year Wii U Daily and to everyone here

    • Erik

      You too! Other than that.. since when you got buff?

      • DarkLegacy

        I’ve been working out for the final battle against Xehanort

        • Erik

          Careful out there.. You MIGHT make Kari a bit jealous… just a fair warning. That aside, any news about the Ultima Weapon? SE HAVE to make the strongest Keyblades in the game! Previous games made that either 2nd or 3rd strongest after like putting so much effort and work on obtaining it :(

          • DarkLegacy

            Have not heard news about it yet, but I think we’ll have to gather materials for it like we did in KH1 and 2. And speaking of keyblades they are able to transform into any weapons like guns

  • Michael Hancock

    Isn’t every day exactly 1 year later than it was 1 year ago? Does it make any sense to celebrate this January 1st, if at all? What a stupid fucking holiday.

  • kevin nun—-

    WiiUDaily works just fine but not Disqus when I used the Chrome browser but fine when using other browsers. Does that mean I was banned or something? lol

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Being a primary Chrome user,i’m guessing that clearing your internet cache will do the trick. Happens to me sometimes when I don’t see any news posts. It could also be your anti-virus software doing that or possible toolbars. Make sure they aren’t conflicting with any websites.

      If you were banned, you wouldn’t be here commenting.

    • http://Nintendo.com/ Reggie Fils-Aime

      Format you C: drive that should do the trick XD
