Warring: Angry Anti-Wii U Rant
I once was a very loyal Nintendo Fan, then the PS1 and N64 Came out things changed. I hate N64 controllers and the N64 library of games No actual real Mario Game ether (Mario 64 isn’t a Mario Game). My hatred of Mario 64 is a whole another topic all together.
The Game Cube did very little to try win me back, 4 of the 9 GC titles I own is Legend of Zelda (Wind Waker, the Zelda Collectors Disc with Ocarina of Time, Majoras mask and the 2 NES titles and Twilight Princess), one being Soul Calibur II (which as Link in it). Having the Collectors Disk freed me up to trade my N64 collection for a whole box full of anime. The Wii pushed me more away from Nintendon’t, with a library that proves to be so much shovel ware that the only gems are 1st party ports and reboots, and a console I play so little I did not even bother acknowledging Skyward Sword. To Me Skyward Sword fell into the same pit as the Philips CD-i games. Oh and the Fucking Wii motion Plus, talk about a dollar short and a day late, that piece of shit should of been built-in stock on day 1.
So when it comes to the Wii U, with the second worst console name ever (first place went to Apple’s short lived Pippin system). A Controller tablet I think is PANTS-ON-HEAD-RETARDED. And come on for Christ sakes, a 8 GB and a 32 GB console where in reality, after formatting and initial setup and updates you have 3GB from 8GB? I can’t even download a good size game that comfortably fit 3 GB and have space for saves. 32 GB is also a joke, is this a Smart Phone or a Game console? So far every good game on the Wii is a PS3/Xbox 360 port on a next gen console that barely out performs the Xbox 360. They say Nintendo does not pay attention to the industry, the world, its customers or its fan base that they march in their own direction; maybe they should start paying attention to there customers when the last good console I think they had was the SNES.
I rather wait for the Ouya in March.
