  1. It’s going to be a fun year.
    Munster Hunter 4 will be my first MH game. I thought the trailer looked great!
    Animal crossing, day 1 purchase.
    And I’m actually excited for the Pokemon X/Y as well.
    I may be among the minority, but I absolutely love playing gamed in 3D. I don’t mind it not being HD, because the 3D is so emmersive.

    Additionally, I’m finding myself playing more and more of my WiiU games on the gamepad, for convienience. The Gamepad totally was a stroke of genius. I can play console games anywhere in my house, it’s a blast.

    Keep up the good work Nintendo.

    1. I can completely agree with you. There’s been countless times where I’ve thought “I wish this was in 3D” while playing the Wii U, and even the Wii, and I found myself staring at the GamePad more than the TV with games like Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U, and HD graphics are slightly important if used well and not just for “Oh look, we’re in HD now.”

  2. I’ll probably be getting one towards the end of March, being by birthday n all, might treat myself x3
    Hopefully Pikmin is out by then :(

  3. That’s not to good I don’t want to be playing launch titles this time next year I hope it’s just gaps that will be field at e3 ?
