At least their announcements aren't Halo, COD, Battlefield, yet another generic shooter with better textures, yet another generic shooter with better textures. I still have my doubts about Nintendo but it wouldn't be the first time they pulled a hat trick.
I didn't see anything any more innovative on Nintendo's side than some of the indie games from the other two companies. They're still bringing out the next Mario, Yoshi, SSM, and Zelda, although no complaints on a sequel like that last one.
Am I the only one totally pumped for Yoshi's Wooly World? Maybe it's just nostalgia, but Yoshi's Story was a favorite of mine years ago. I picked it up on VC recently and was sorely reminded how much better I was at gaming as a teenager vs now, but still loads of fun. I could play xbox or ps shooters on a PC with better graphics and controls, if that interested me. Nintendo has surely been late to the game with interesting titles this generation, but they definitely look promising.
First of all, Nintendo RIP? What a joke. 3DS handheld and 3DS games alone could keep the company afloat until the next generation with zero problems lol. Say nothing about the flood of people who are going to buy a Wii U when Smash Bros, Hyrule Warriors and the new Zelda title are available.
Between those titles, the newly released and simply amazing Mario Kart 8, and future titles like Metroid Prime Wii U and more, there's no reason to buy any other console. Wii U sales have sucked up until now, but that's because they lacked killer games to sell the console. Smash Bros, Zelda, Mario Kart are going to sell truck loads of Wii Us.
What does sony or microsoft have? 1 or 2 semi-decent exclusives each and a bunch of titles that are better played on PC anyway? Pff pff pff lol.
