      Considering how many look meh, or have had nothing shown at all, I agree.

      I’m only interested in M&L thus far. The rest that we’ve seen stuff of (sans AC) disappoint me. I just don’t like AC that much.

      I’ll probably like MK enough when it releases, and SSB too. SMB depends on the game, which we haven’t seen.

      I love Nintendo, but I wish they’d stop resting on their laurels. And I wish that their fanbase would stop letting them. I mean, I love their IPs but I don’t need them all the damn time. And certainly not when they all start to feel and look the same.

      How come nostalgia didn’t help them during during the N64-Gamecube era?

        I don’t know what you mean?

          (S)He means that N64 and GCN were huge commercial disasters for Ninty despite having a slew of “nostalgic” titles whose quality was rather high.

            Oh, alright.
            But that was a time where some franchises just started to get big.
            Nowadays it’s: “Oh hey, another Zelda. Remember Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask? Those were good. You all like Super Mario Bros., right?”
            And that’s what Nintendo is thinking at the
            Why not go for a few new franchises?
            Either way, Nintendo is kinda done for.
            The Wii U will share the same fate as the Wii with almost no 3rd Party Support.
            But this time people won’t fall for the gimmicky motion controllers.

              Here, take a look at this:

              I share their and – to some extent – your opinion. The last truly original IP concocted by Ninty was Pikmin. Been a while. I fucking want to know what Retro are working on. E3 is the last opportunity for Ninty to wow press and gamers alike and convince us that their top studios are working on something for WiiU. Otherwise it will be a Wii situation all over again, indeed.

              It will be an extremely tough E3 for them, as traditionally new hardware overshadows new software. Ninty are fortunate to have their loyal supporters who bought a WiiU at launch. I like them but they need to give me a damn good reason to buy a WiiU beside a PS4. Wind Waker HD ain’t gonna cut it. Something, anything by Retro, preferably an original IP, would be all the convincing I’m requesting from Ninty to make me feel excited for WiiU and finally buy that thing.

              My initial comment was a direct response to your question :P

              • xMCXx

                Yeah, I think so, too.
                I actually wanted to buy a Wii U, because ,hey, it’s pretty cheap and it’s just for games. No multimedia nonsense.
                But then I realized that there are currently 2 games, at best, I’m interested in. :-/

    I haven’t played either the sequel or the original, but that’s great news about the sales of Luigi’s Mansion. Well done Nintendo.

    A New Super Mario Bros game is getting announced at E3? Sweet. That’s something to look forward to.
