Were Wonderful 101 and Pikmin unanimously disappointing?

They just came out and already no one is talking about them, and no one seems to care about them. Funny, considering they're the only releases for the system in months.

Its not the games that ppl dont care about, its the system in general. When you have a system thats only in like 4mil homes, the games arent exactly going to get a ton of attention until something happens and the system starts flying off shelves.

Pikmin was never popular in the US. Its a lower tier Nintendo franchise that does well in Japan because they love strategy games, but they dont do well here so that was never going to get a ton of attention here. W101 is a new IP, with cartoony graphics, how much attention is that really going to get?

You really have to wait for the heavy hitters, Mario Kart, Smash...

Pikmin 3 felt like a step back from the second to me for some reason.

I know this board has a problem recognising trolls and falsely categorising others as trolls but this is Goon.

Don't respond to Goon.

I loved Pikmin 3, probably my favourite game in the series. W101 hasn't been released here yet, but I'm buying it day one.
Everybody's havin' a good time with Poppy Bros!

Its funny when you see TC make topics like this, and then see him on the Vita board going "Stahp trolling guize!! >:0"

Delicious hypocrisy.
