    In Pokémon's case, that's Game Freak's incompetence in hiring bad writers.

    Unless Miyamoto uses the "No Plot" card like he did in Sticker Star...

    ... Nintendo and GameFreak have nothing to do with the Pokemon anime. They're just the rights holders to the franchise. They didn't do any hiring.

    I knew I had something wrong.

    So, let me rephrase it.

    It's whoever is in charge of the Pokémon anime that makes it so bad.

    Is this, like, a real thing that people think? As in, there are people who complain that a hugely effective 22-minute weekly commercial with expendable viewership doesn't meet their high standards?

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    The worse that happened was that mother *******, sh**** anime that I shamefully say was supposed to represent F-Zero. It was terrible and then they made some less than stellar games of that stupid damn show that had the worst sh**** writing. 4kids did not ruin it. It was already ruined to begin with.

    Sounds like a plot to me.

    No, just all the craziness Best Wishes has caused. There weren't as many big problems with it before.

    The one diamond in the rough, or rather, a load of garbage. I will say that was awesome. Here's the ultimate F-Zero challenge! Don't worry, you don't have to touch GX, just name me another awesome scene from the anime.

    Never watched it, but honestly, that one scene alone warrants its creation.

    I picked up Pikmin 3 today. So far all me and my siblings have been able to do is Bingo Battle! It is so much fun!

    I've been playing the story mode and it's pretty fun. I still haven't found the captain but the graphics are really awesome. The only complaints I have is the camera controls are a little bit more difficult than Pikmin 2 (other than the lock-on feature) and the Gamepad controls, but I can just use the Wii remote anyway so that doesn't matter :)

    I think he achieved exactly what he intended, if poorly worded. Read his post closely.

    So I finally got Pikmin 3, but now I need to do an update before I can play, then later it failed, then I got a pop up for Nintendo Network ID, I tried it, but it said I didn't enter my info right or something, I don't what to do for it. What's with all the unnecessary stuff just to play the game? Why can't the update just be on disk like the Wii games?

    Because the update might be too big/was pushed after the game shipped?

    I don't disapprove of the console. I've loved Nintendo since the days of the NES. I grew up with all the cheesy 80s Mario and Zelda shows. I've been a fan as every system up to this one has come out, and it's likely that nothing is going to change that. And honestly, I don't think Nintendo's really running out of ideas. They're definitely playing it safe with some of their franchises, don't get me wrong. But I wouldn't say they're running out of ideas. But that's not what I was talking about with my previous posts.

    All I was originally saying is that Nintendo should have had more exclusives for the Wii U this past year, in order to make the console more competitive and sell more units. Do I think it sold horribly? Not really (at least in total; this quarter was pretty atrocious), but it definitely had the potential to sell much better, especially if one of those games they announced at E3 had been out at the time. I'm not saying they should have had every single game out at launch. But if they had one or two of those really good looking titles they announced at E3, and they had them back when the system launched in the first place, more people would likely own a Wii U right now. Therefore, there would be more potential for people to buy any exclusives that would be coming out this fall.

    And as expected, when I started to criticize the Wii U and mention all this, the Nintendo fans jumped on it with 'Oh, it's fine. Games take a long time to make.'. The thing that's funny about fanboys, is that there is a double standard when it comes to them. Let me explain what I mean.

    Back when the PS3 came out, people here were bashing the console as being 'dead on arrival' and my favorite 'the final nail in Sony's coffin'. And they did have a lot of the same problems with the PS3 that the Wii U has right now (which is why I'm NOT saying those kinds of things about it; they made mistakes the first year, but the console is nowhere near 'dead on arrival'). A console with few exclusives for its first year, and even I said they needed more exclusives. Now admittedly, I didn't own a PS3 the first year it came out (mainly because I usually have a policy of not getting a console in its first year, which I broke when the Wii U came out by the way). But I did understand where a lot of them were coming from.

    Now the same thing is happening with the Wii U in its first year, but there are two differences. First, the Wii U didn't have another big next gen system to compete with for its first year. And second, people here have suddenly changed their tune. It's now suddenly ok for a new console to have only a couple exclusives when it launches, and for it to not sell well right away. And anyone that says differently is wrong and doesn't know what they're talking about. But I promise you that if this had been the PS4 or the Xbox One that had done this, everyone here that is defending the Wii U would jump on them and attack them for it.

    And like the PS3, I don't think the Wii U is going to completely fail or anything extreme like that. I think it'll do fine, eventually. I just think Nintendo should have used their initial year more wisely, much like how I think Sony should have used the first year of the PS3 more wisely. Now granted, if the new Mario and Zelda games come out, and then after that the console STILL isn't selling well, well then we might have a problem. But I really don't foresee that happening.


    Just because kids watch it, doesn't mean it needs to be dumbed down. This has been proven true time and again. Kid's shows don't need to treat their audience like idiots.

    Seems to have worked fine for everyone else, and continues to work fine for me.
