Anonymous asked: Is Nintendo better off ditching the Wii U at this point? The Vita is consistently outselling it (not by much), and people just don't care about it. This past week in Japan, The Vita sold more units because of God Eater 2, and the Atelier Rorona re-release, and the Wii U had a Mario game! And Lightning Returns cost more, and sold 200,000 more units than Mario's 95,000. What can they do? Re-messaging can't do anything to help the apathy around the system. Should they just Xbox 360 it, and ditch?
Nintendo is a company built on loyalty, and it’s not about to abandon even the meager few who have purchased a Wii U. It might make more sense to cut its losses and focus exclusively on 3DS, but I don’t expect that to happen. If Nintendo was a traditional company, Satoru Iwata would have started laying off employees by now. If he won’t do that, he won’t abandon his customers, either. Wii U will be a platform with excellent first-party Nintendo releases, alongside a few third-party games that Nintendo dishes out some money for, and that’s about it. It’s going to be another GameCube, but you know what? GameCube had some kick ass games.
(P.S. Mario Sunshine haters are the worst.)
Hell yeah! I really enjoyed Mario Sunshine. The GameCube was the only system I had for that entire generation and I loved it.
E3 Is Over!
Well, actually E3 2012 has been over for a few days now and after trying to break my Twitter feed with updates I have now had the chance to sit down and collect some thoughts into a blog post. So if anyone will indulge me, I’m going to pretend I know something about games and write an absurdly long post for, most likely, no one to enjoy. For every idea that I had for something to write about, it lead to several other thoughts and ideas so I’m going to try to break up the blog into smaller, bite-size sections so readers won’t get too bored going through big chunks all at once, and to give the option of skimming. So, here goes nothing, we’ll start off with games, those are what people want right?
Games of E3 2012
E3 Has Begun!
It is that time of late spring, early summer again and E3 is making the internet explode with nerd once more. I will probably be dusting off the blog and writing some thoughts later this week, but for now, if anyone cares, follow me on Twitter @bigevil1987 to hear all my stupid jokes and comments about E3 happenings. Thanks to anyone who clicks on me!
