It's typical Nintendo. An impractical gimmick that will be forgotten, reducing it to a standard gaming console with an annoying controller. The only games I seen so far that look even remotely good are just ports of Xbox and PS3 games, and the only draw for them will be the motion controls. No thank you. I'd rather play Black Ops 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 with a controller that wasn't designed by a PR department who snorted coke off a dictionary opened to the word innovation.
Which is how I suspect all their business gets done.
"Let's see, uhm, like, FUCK, so... huurrngh... what's, like, big right now, and, how can we Nintendo?"
"Well, I have an iPad, and it's like a TV IN MY HEART because my nose is on fire!"
"DUDE YOUR RIGHT! Screens are everywhere! I literally saw an entire shop of screens! Lets put some buttons on that shit run through this plate glass curtain!"
"That's guna be so perfectly comfortable and fuck... so perfectly FUCK! What the FUCK is a Nintendo?!"
"We need more innovation, line some up Miyomoto"
Aside from that, we get New Super Mario Bro's Wiiu. If that name alone doesn't make you shake your head, your brains already fried from years of Nintendo loyalty.
The original games, as in, not the rehashed franchises or the ports, just look gimmicky to the point of unplayable. Zombiiu. Here's a standard first person zombie game with standard objectives complicated to make it seem more real. Don't just open a door or look in your pack. Make it an experience! You ARE the door knob!
No. Fuck Nintendo -.- I'm all for innovation, but throwing out poorly conceived products every which way until something sticks is not how you change an industry.
Unless you're Nintendo and have been doing it for decades, in which case, you get a infinillion monies.
Is that sufficient for you Council of Useless?
