It's a list that proves Nintendo's commitment to innovation within the gaming medium. Sequel, sequel, sequel, sequel, REMAKE!!!, sequel, sequel, sequel, REMAKE!!!, something.
WHAT A LIST!!!
I bought one expecting barely any games and some mediocre hardware with the occasional gem. Even with those low expectations I am astounded at what a waste it has been. One mediocre game. Done poor ports and two Nintendo exclusives that are the worst thing they have done since Mario sunshine. And they don't even have anything in the pipeline and are not even trying to get third parties on board.
Of course, I'm certainly not going to argue that disappointment isn't the most logical and popular stance. I don't think there have been all that many cancellations though, have there? I can only think of Aliens and Crysis 3.
Do the sales figures and the constant cancelling of games not make you think they may have a point?
The bigger concern (for me at least) isn't stuff getting cancelled, it's stuff not getting developed in the first place! Almost every new game multi-format game announcement doesn't have the Wii U getting a version. EA were barely supporting it in the first place and are all but withdrawing entirely. Nintendo themselves have only really got a handful of games they've revealed.
The onus is really on Nintendo to make games that sell consoles. Will they get better at this as time goes on? Who knows. I can completely understand being cautious though, as they really haven't proven they're really invested in the Wii U yet. This time next year even I may not be happy
New Super Mario 3D Game
New Mario Kart
New Yoshi Game
New Smash Bros
The Wonderful 101
Plus other stuff to be announced in the next month.
I'm being generous with 'sequel' for most of them as they're more or less add on packs for existing games.
I came in like a wrecking ball. Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung. Left me crashing in a blazing fall. All you ever did was wreck me. Yeah, you, you wreck me.
