  1. It’s so hard to believe that the 3DS is still selling so well. It’s even harder to believe that anyone would want a Wii U just for Super Mario Maker. Splatoon? Well, I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it’s not really my cup of tea.

    1. Splatoon is absolutely amazing, my Game of the Year by far! I’ve put so many hours into that game, great example on how Nintendo’s uniqueness can affect games in a positive way!

        1. I haven’t got it yet either but it’s on my list to buy. There is currently 3 games ahead of it I need to buy first.

        2. I am a solo player, but still enjoy Splatoon very much. It doesn’t require you to have to be social since all matches are random.

    2. There are other games on the system. There are people who will buy it for the collection of games.

  2. The Wiiu best game has to be Splatoon and is one of finest game released in 2015 nothing comes close to it not even super mario maker now we had mario party 10 not for everyone unless big fan of party games, rodea the sky soldier isn’t good as nights and is very difficult game to play and bad controls not bad game, mario tennis ultra smash is good solid tennis game not real style and no real players just Nintendo characters seriously how many people would like this to close as to real tennis not many still great game then got Xenoblade chronicles haven’t played it yet no comments and finally fast racing neo will be released on 10th December another title need to be seen.
