Also new this week:


  1. So Nintendo released ‘a’ game on the virtual console. As in one single game…

    My advice, wait for NX. They have given up on Wii U virtual console.

    1. You honestly think the NX virtual console will be better? The Wii one was okay cause it was the first time. With Wii U they started all over. That will happen on the NX VC to. They will start with the same 5 they always do and barely do anything with it.

  2. The Wii U is dead.
    Nintendo knows the Wii U is dead.
    It has exhaled its last breath such as one Robin Williams.
    The Wii U is a sad memory filled of “with if’s” and the certainty of potential that could never come to fruition such as one I will not name other than the ghost of Quadriaxis…
