Aren't you the guy who compared Nintendo's "selling out" to the Holocaust?

Yeah, I know right.

That NES sure failed when it started catering to those lazy casuals who wanted to stay at home rather than going to the arcades like us REAL GAMERS.


Have to admit, this made me laugh.

First off, the Wii U is doing fine. It isn't bombing anywhere.

Second, Nintendo has always been about the casual gamer, not the hardcore. The NES was marketed as a toy, not a gaming machine. The SNES was pretty damn casual. The only time Nintendo tried to be hardcore was with the GameCube, and that failed miserably.

So yeah, catering to casuals has always been Nintendo's thing. And it's smart and profitable to cater to a large audience rather than an unpleasable dinky minority (hardcores).

Yea I personally never really liked pineapple pizza, it just seems like such an odd combination? Like you said anybody else feel the same?


Salty AND sweet??? Well it is delicious. Only a fool would knock less they try it. I used to hate anchovies as a kid too, but now I love that on a pizza. What happened?

Uh, Playstation Move?


Sony got rid of that garbage and stopped supporting it like instantly after it came out. Go ahead name a single highly advertised move game. Yup nothing, zero.

Sony wised up.

But last E3 proved MS still only cares about Kinect and CASUALS.

Do you have any better suggestions for how to derail a topic?

Talk about the Vita. Thats what most of the fanboys do.

That's not a half-bad idea. We can even get the trolls to pitch in when they complain about people derailing topics!

It's the systems LAUNCH! Every launch since EVER has been like this. Jesus Christ you people, did you just start gaming with the PS360 last gen? Hell even if you did you'd have to accept that Wii U's launch did better than either of those consoles. So either way you've caused my brain to hurt. Good work.
