Article: Wii U? Wii? I never Wii'd before, and more - a commentary by cjizzle
I totally agree, I had the same childhood growing up when it comes to video games, You made some great points in your commentary, i'm with you on this one, forget what others say im sticking it out with N.
Love your story lets hope it does have a happy ending I agree 100% about the bad name and marketing but I also think it was just bad timing. Everyone is waiting to see what Microsoft & Sony are doing, when you think back to the release of the Wii it was a slow start for it also. I love N also, they may not have the best graphics (and as you said I could give a crap) because they always deliver on fun, Happy Gaming guys & girls.
I just got a Wii U today, I wasn't going to get one but I couldn't stand to miss the new Mario's, Zelda's, Metroid's, Donkey Kong's. The system is actually really cool. Totally worth it, they do need to work on marketing though, but the exclusives that Nintendo will have is going to be worth the wait!
