Talking on Miiverse makes me feel... awkward. Is everyone on it six years old?

Okay, so pretty much every conversation I've had on Miiverse has felt like it has been with small children. There are a bunch of examples, but this one was funny.

So, people were posting screenshots of their ships glitching out and tipping over in port in AC4. Then, we get this post:

"this is weird. my ship tipped because there a washing machine in a room by mine & it shook like crazy & even shook my wii u & then messed up the wii u causing my ship to tip"


Yeah. Apparently, the game is capable of detecting motion on your Wii U console itself, and your ship will react accordingly.

Then, there was the time that I was ranting about a game-ending bug in Zombi U, that required me to start the entire game over. Even though this is a well documented glitch, a few people on Miiverse insisted that my physical game disk was faulty, and that I should demand a replacement disk.

Anyone else feel awkward chatting on Miiverse?

Honestly, that's nothing compared to some of the stuff you see. If you use Twitter, follow BadMiiversePosts, there's some great stuff on there.

To answer your question though, I wouldn't use Miiverse for a proper discussion - partly because of the character limit, and partly because of the type of people that use it for actual discussions tends to be kids or weirdos.

I only really use it for going on the wind up, because people there take it so seriously, or they're so bizarre that you get some great reactions.

It shows the audience those games (AC4, etc) REALLY target.

I check Rolling Western, KI:U, MH3U, communities and while there are always a few baby-brain posters anywhere (not just Miiverse) I can't really say I notice an abundance of posts like the one TC quotes.

The Rolling Western deserves a big budget sequel. People who agree: 1

That's what I've been saying for years. All of these kids who want to think they are cool by playing "mature" games (like a certain someone who posted right after my original post).

Nice. Just took a look, and some of those are hilarious. Thanks for the link!

I love the ones that go, "Wow. Why so mean Bowser? Hardest level ever!" in SM3DW, and it's a level I could beat blindfolded.

More like shows the audience the Wii U REALLY target.

Miiverse is full of children, delusional Nintendo fanboys, and the occasional sensible person.
