IGN: "WIi U strikes back"

#1EnVy_CaLiBeRPosted 1/23/2013 8:59:24 AM(edited)
"Today Nintendo did something remarkable, in a way that puts most other developers and publishers to shame. Though the Big N is often quiet and secretive, it has managed to find a modern, progressive format to deliver its news directly to its fans, while retaining its trademark sense of humility. In 30 minutes, over a dozen games were showcased, some coming in mere months, others perhaps years away. Regardless, the message was clear - Wii U is not only home to innovative new play styles for families, but epic, core experiences that rival the grandest, most ambitious endeavors available elsewhere."

I agree. Nintendo shut a lot of critics up with this ND and ended a lot of the confusion about the future of the Wii U and where it's headed. It's headed down a pretty impressive path, I'd say. Can't wait for E3 to see Smash Bros, the 3D Mario, and the other titles that they will more than likely announce.

They didn't shut up any critics, the critics just have more things they can say sucks.

Though it won't have that effect here until the board slows down.

also from the article..

Finally.

That’s really the only word that comes to mind after watching Nintendo’s new ‘Direct’ broadcast. In just over 30 minutes, the game publishing giant not only made a better case for the future of Wii U than in the previous 12 months, it managed to surpass the hype it generated at its past two E3 outings - combined. For months, even years, Nintendo has simply placed a tablet-driven product in front of us and asked us to imagine the possibilities. But our imaginations have limits, particularly in the face of games that exist in the here and now - games that aren’t on Nintendo’s systems. We need to see the future, not just believe it’s coming.


In 30 minutes, over a dozen games were showcased... these games are entirely, completely exclusive, all tied to Nintendo directly as a software publisher, not as a licensor. The sheer glee of Wonderful 101 won’t be coming to Xbox 360. The visual brilliance of Yoshi’s Island won’t be appearing on a phone with loads of in-app purchases. PlayStation 3 will never get a HD remake of the timeless, gorgeous Wind Waker.
