1 game won't "save" the system. I'll be picking it up at some point though.

ITT: Niche titles save systems.

EDIT: Eh. This post felt more troll-y than I intended after I read it.

8.8 is what the average good game gets from them.

9.5+ is outstanding.

It's not Mario or Zelda but it's one of the bigger IPs

^ It's still a niche title.

Man, I was really looking forward to this review since I've never played a Pikmin game before, but there's no way I'm watching a video review with Keza. Can't ****ing stand that ****'s voice.

Dude, niche would be like SMT (though maybe not now, it's gotten quite big) or more like Cavestory popular but only within a select crowd, pikmin while not Mario or Zelda is still rather large, next you'll be telling me Kirby is niche

Good to hear. I'm looking forward to this arriving on Thursday. Still the review itself was of ok quality, but I hate how that Keza always bangs on about emotional attachment and nostalgia. It's a load of old bolocks, just tell us about the game.

^ Pikmin is a niche title. It has unique gameplay that only a number of gamers are interested in. It's a console RTS and it deviates from even that simple classification. Pikmin is niche whether you accept it or not.

EDIT: I always get into arguments on the Wii U board without even trying. I even admitted my post was a little more inflammatory than I wanted it to be.
