The 5 Games I Want For My 2015 Christmas Wii U

Essentially, this post is similar to a post titled “Top 5 Wii U Games I’d Buy Now (If I Had A Wii U)”. That post was created early last year. It’s amazing how much has changed in a year and a half. I purchased the Mass Effect trilogy for $9 on a flash sale a few months ago …

E3 2015 (Quick and Easy) Predictions

Here are some quick predictions for this year’s E3. There seem to be some certainties about E3. I am making predictions on things that I am fairly sure will happen, but are not guaranteed. In other words, I wouldn’t call any of these predictions particularly bold. I will be more surprised than not if these …

Thoughts on Nintendo in the Smartphone Market

Nintendo has announced that they will develop, publish and release games for smartphones as early as this year. While we can expect to hear much more at E3 in June, this announcement is timed well for investors as Nintendo approaches the end of its fiscal year. That aside, this is a truly surprising piece of news. …

Wii U in 2014

I like all the flack Nintendo got for not releasing a console that played HD games until 2012, which was released 6-7 years after its competitors. There are several things to say regarding this, and likely most of them have been said. To address HD in 2012, I must say I am sorely disappointed at the lack of …

Top 5 Most Difficult Missions in Perfect Dark (PA Difficulty)

This was a list I have wanted to make and have been thinking about for years. It’s a tough one to make because most of the missions on Perfect Agent (PA) difficulty are difficult. For this list, I didn’t consider the “bonus” missions. At least 2 of those 4 would have probably made the list. …

Top 5 Wii U Games I’d Buy Now (if I owned a Wii U)

If I was harsh with Nintendo a few days ago, let me show some love by telling you what games I’d buy if I owned a Wii U today. None of these games by themselves are compelling enough for me to want to buy a Wii U. However, if I owned a few of these …

Seriously Nintendo…Where Are the Games?

Harsh title? Harsher reality. The Wii U has been available for consumers to purchase since November of 2012. That means it’s been out on the market for a period of 16 months. I still can’t think of one ‘killer app’ game for the console. It might be worth revisiting what Nintendo has accomplished with their …

Nintendo cuts Wii’s Wi-Fi in May

In a bit of shocking news, Nintendo has announced that it will stop all wi-fi gameplay functions for its games on May 20th. I thought this would include 3rd party games, but this appears not to be the case-it means I might still be able to play the Wii’s Sonic Racing game after that date …

The Last of Wiis in Japan

Nintendo will stop making Wii consoles in the Japanese market. The picture used in the article written by Japan times shows happy Japanese people who had just bought a Wii console. This is kind of a interesting news article for me, because I sat in line for about 19 hours in 2006 to be one …

The Disappointing E3 Nintendo Direct

You can read my previous post to get a basic understanding as to why I am disappointed with Nintendo right now. I was just asking for some revival to some old franchises on the Wii U. Particularly, F-Zero and Star Fox would have been nice; Pilotwings also is a personal favorite of mine. It’s bad …
