Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?

Well, I figure people who own it will play ut, and those that dont will go on with their lives. I will be focus in on my career and homework, and squeeze in some gaming when I can.

Super Mario 3D World started out with poor numbers in Japan, but has now picked up and has sold over 2 million copies worldwide.

Same thing could and will probably happen Tropical Freeze.

Dk historically sells much less than mainline marios. Not that sales matter in regards to game quality, but i firmly expect the fact that only a few people were asking for a dk sequel this soon to bite nintendo in the ass upon release.

Platformers cant be released back to back to back and be successful in the ways that theyre hoping. Even those that saw release on the wii were very spread out with the exception of that year that dk came out with colors, metroid and kirby. Even then, though, it had been YEARS since those franchises made 2d appearances on consoles at all and their releases were a big deal.

Now, due to the new 2d boom, it's just kinda, 'meh. More of this.'

Wiiu, at the end of the day, will have the hands down best kart racers and platformers. Im not sure thats enough when people tend to want action shooters and open world adventure now and nintendo, though they have the franchises, doesnt seem to be interested in caring.

It's just donkey kong, no real need to freak out.

Wait til real titans like Mario Kart 8 and Smash come out, and if that doesnt pick up Wii U sales, then yea nothing will save it.
