Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

I'm not sure what the 'disappointment' would be.... other than "oh, it doesn't play all the Sony / MS games". Anyway, I think articles like this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25805136 are no help at all to the cause of the Wii U. I'm sure a lot of people will read that and simply not buy one o...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25772276 Sobering news from ninty... Cutting Wii u sale forecasts by 70%. Time for them to drop the price. I'm not far of justifying buying one. Super Mario 3D World, the upcoming Mario Kart and some other gems would certainly be worth shelling out say £130 for the ...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

Not that I can really blame them, as most Nintendo games still have the look of the GameCube era about them, even if they're now in HD. Now, can someone clear this up for me. Which consoles can you play HD games on ? I presume when people say 'HD', they are talking about 1080p or something? Are the...

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

Pfft, the 3rd-party developers all want it handed to them on a plate? They should be reverse engineering the thing like in the old days with people reverse-engineering the atari 2600 etc :)

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

Doesnt the Wii mean motion controls? These sorts of questions are the things consumers will come up with when they see this. With all of this, it's a MUCH more difficult sale than the easily-understood-by-anyone-at-first-glance Wii. This may worry you even further but the gamepad on the Wii U *is* ...

That VGChartz bar graph is interesting isn't it? What is going on with that PS Vita bar?

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

Pretty much every single gimmick other than the DS's screens that they'd come up with up to that point just.... well, they didnt even get to the "cough a few times" part, they just fell over and died. Not to forget that this 'gimmick' of two-screens was not to do with the DS and happened in about 1...

The 1st party exclusives, basically. Seems to be what most people (myself included) are waiting out for. i.e. mario kart, smash bros. and hopefully a new zelda

Re: Is there room for the Wii U in this gen?

The wiiU seems to have completely revitalized my Nintendo love though (along with the 3DS)... I seem to want to get every Nintendo product I can get my hands on at the moment and I'm loving it. I haven't felt this enthused about modern gaming in a long while! Could just be that you've deprived your...

Re: Experiencing headaches, dizziness or nausea?

The only thing at all that makes me feel bad is using it to take 3D videos and play them back, I cannot take more than a few seconds of watching those. Yeah they're not great but the slider has no effect on those or the photos, the 3D effect is either on or off for videos/photos. I have to say that...

Re: Consoles on modern TVs

Actually, while we're on this whole subject : Now that we've moved into our new house it's time to get a new TV stand / unit. We have this one which we now hate which is basically two glass panes on wheels, the TV is on the top glass pane and on the bottom glass pane we have our Blu-Ray player, huma...

Re: Consoles on modern TVs

If your Panasonic Viera looks good then stick with that. Remember the N64 always did look a bit blurred anyway - nature of the hardware! Yep. But.... the issue is we've just bought a house and the lounge is a little bigger than our current one and the Panasonic is only a 26" TV, was hoping to get s...
