      1. Yeah but calling it Nintendo Wii is the last gen console of Nintendo while calling it Xbox or Playstation sounds current

            1. No, not really. Only those who know the difference between the Wii and Wii U are the ones who are up-to-date with Nintendo… essentially. All of this could have been avoided, if Nintendo chose a better name.

              1. lol yah even when Nintendo first announced the name there was an awkward pause then an applause.
                (“WLCOM TO THE WORLD OF WIIU!”
                “HUH? WHAT THE…… WHAT A WEIRD NAME BUT ITS a NEW CONSOLE… YAY! *applause*)

        1. they should have just put “Sony’s Best Console Game”
          “Nintendo’s Best Console Game” etc…
          Pretty simple. -,-

  1. splatoon not nominated for best online multiplayer?

    but hey sure why not nominate FIFA15 instead which is the exact same as every year

        1. so when someone posts a link to this mynintendonews article someplace else then it’s suddenly mynintendonews who nominated these games?

          1. article says “respected” publications, linking to IGN, amd I did not find with quick look, so presumably publications including IGN, no matter whether people actually respects it or not.

            1. the term “panel” should already have told you that, even if IGN was involved they’re not the only ones on the panel

              the panel is selected by the gamescom host (BIU)

              IGN have their own gamescom awards (mentioned in the source article)

      1. With the difference that they put in the name of the “Playstation” and “Xbox” brands and not the name of the console of a generation ago, as Nintendo Wii.

  2. sasorideidara obi the puppet master clown destroyer

    glad call of duty advance warfare wii u will crush the pathetic splatoon game. #wiiuneedsmoreCODplayers

      1. come on, man!. really?, the village people?
        if we are in the “Everyone purgatory”. i do not wanna know about your “pa-ra-di-se”.

    1. You must really love this guy to take your time and make 12 memes of him. Your obsession with him is kinda cute to be honest. I hope you feel accomplished with your life up to this point. Also, at this point in society it’s ridiculous that racism still exists, get a fucking life man

      1. you have to get a life too ; )
        also if you didn’t know those memes were made by different people, all of them hate sasori.

          1. Nintendo is my Blood

            Quite, in fact, let me celebrate by making a new meme, someone ought to spread them all over the net

              1. “anonymous” i don’t think so, with this:
                “Also, at this point in society it’s ridiculous that racism still exists, get a fucking life man” i’m pretty sure he’s either speed akpodiete or pokemon nerd 2000

                1. Nintendo is my Blood

                  Speed, I doubt it, Speed seems to genuinely believe Narutard is capable of change, “fucking” doesn’t seem to be a word he would use

        1. and they are doing an excellent job. facts?, he went to one of the sites and added an insult to the great master that made one of those memes XD. something like “screw this faggot”, when sasori says “mostly kids use the word fag”. someone send him a band aid and aloe vera for the burns!

      2. actually, a lot of people made those memes. sasori got all the hate due to his lack of intelligence. he made racist and sexist comments and went to youtube to say he is the victim.
        oh, and he created his own virtual church, wishes death to iwata and all japanese people in general. says martin luther king is “overrated”. think gamestop employees are retards because they did not sell him m rated games.

        1. Nintendo is my Blood

          Indeed, he wants to be a prick, we’ll treat him like one

          OH, I know, we have his picture, someone sign him up on porn sites with his Twitter and Youtube links

          1. i trolled him to the point he called me “anoymous social reject”. that does mean i trolled him so badly that he does need insults to counter LOL.

          2. the fact is that sasori exposed himself, the anonymous guy should know that sasori is a motherfucker who hates everybody who don’t agree with him (women, gay people, Asians, Afrodescendants).
            Also is so fucking easy to find his information, the idiot keeps using the same nickname everywhere and this anonymous guy should be careful i heard rumors that the people behind most of the memes and stuff that exposes sasori are the trolls from ED, i don’t know if it’s true, but i bet that it is.

        2. I stumbled upon this site by looking for release dates. I noticed tons of love for this kid Sasori but had no idea what a cunt he actually was. Carry on with the bashing, seems he deserves what he gets.

          1. Don’t worry i have to admit that i’m not the best person ever, but we started to insult them because he started to call people fagots, social rejects, idiots, clowns and such things also he is known for his sexist comments and his hatre for everybody who don’t agrees with him he went as far as wishing death to Iwata and made sexist comments about women. sasori has made a lot of bad things and i can’t stand some people believe he’s a saint. sorry if i was an asshole with you anonymous.

            PS: we attack sasori not because we like nintendo, we attack him because he has been an asshole with everybody

      3. @Anonymous guy, i don’t have a life, but i’m sure you’re a generous individual so you could you be so gentle and sell me one? maybe yours?

  3. 3 games … not nominations For hyrule warriors or bayonetta 2 or even X…they mentioned splatoon and yoshi wooly world but none of the other titles in 2015…yeah.

    1. The logic is probably something like: A movie with fighting is an action movie. A game with fighting is therefore an action game.

  4. I dont get online multiplayer. The games werent even available to play online?? Why not just: Best Competitive game and Best Party game.

  5. Pingback: Estos son los nominados para el GamesCom 2014 – Arcadiavg

  6. That panal is a fucking joke. The only true rpg X, doesnt get nominated for best rpg. Skylanders trap team, and Risen 3 instead. Why the hell did they even make a Risen 3, the first two sucked ass. And no nomination for Bayonetta 2 is an unforgivable act.

  7. No Hyrule Warrios, Bayonetta 2, the new Toad game or Yarn Yoshi?

    And it says Nintendo Wii and not Wii U?

    Ok, these are haters. Not watching.

    1. Oh and what about that game Devil’s something and Xenoblade Chronicles? And they still only nominate 3 games? FOR FUCKS SAKE!
