Playing a lot of Monster Hunter now. It's a shame the first half is exactly the same as Monster Hunter Tri. 60€ for a game i've already played. Plus the graphics are exactly the same, quite crappy.

Still fun though.

No offence to anyone who bought a WiiU. As long as you are happy, then I'm happy too.

But I think it's safe for me to say that I'm completely done with Nintendo for now on. I've moved on to Sony and Microsoft. I just feel that if a game doesn't have violence, blood, guns, grittiness, then I can't bring myself to play it. I don't know why. Maybe it's because I'm just growing out of that Nintendo phase. I remember being so competitive in games like Mario Kart, SmashBros, and anything Nintendo related. But nowadays I feel like gaming has evolved so much and Nintendo doesn't do enough to support my interests.

But don't get me wrong though, if I'm at a buddy's house and they're having a Brawl tournament, then I'd definitely join, but in terms of consuming my time with a Nintendo game on my own; no chance.

Also, after seeing the PS4 presentations, I can't possibly bring myself to buy a WiiU.

I have a question for those with a WiiU. Why did you buy one when you know that Microsoft and Sony will release a much superior console with greater opportunities in terms of technical aspects. What keeps you "in" the Nintendo phase?

Lol it's supposed to be the other way around... Most kids these days only want to play mindless, violent, and bloody games, whereas mature gamers want to play engaging and interesting games that actually have more color than brown. Hope that didn't sound to rude though, to each his own. Tongue

Um the PC will always be superior to consoles. Why would I get something from Microsoft or Sony when I can get a PC? If a game is worth its salt it will port over to PC. Nintendo 1st party games will stay on Nintendo consoles though. You will never find Zelda, Mario Kirby, Donkey Kong, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, (the list goes on) on anything other than Nintendo. Far Cry, Bioshock, or Borderlands on the other hand are all cross platform.

Yes there might be some exceptions of really good exclusives for PS3 and 360, but I haven't seen any that would be worth the money of investing in a new system. Just pointless FPS's.

I'm 19 and even though I've grown out of that "Nintendo phase," I still appreciate games that have a unique color palette to them. I don't really find having browns and grays in gritty shooting games to be a bad thing. It's only bad if it's overused. To be honest, I think it works great and gives off a unique and haunting atmosphere. Resistance Fall of Man, Fallout3, and Gears of War are examples.

There's this game called "Knack" coming out for the PS4, and I'm actually looking forward to it. If you're a Nintendo gamer, you should give the trailer a view because I think it's a good example of how "childish" games can evolve and fit into the next generation. The game has scale, and you can clearly see it in the trailer. It's using the PS4's capabilities with physics engines and implementing it to the gameplay. It's very hard for childish games to impress me, but this one did.

The reason I don't have a gaming PC is because the exclusive games on the PS3, 360 feel more worthwhile to me. Franchises like Resistance, Halo, Gears of War, Uncharted, inFamous have a certain quality that I don't normally see in a lot of hotshot PC titles. Plus, I'm just more comfortable playing games with a gamepad. I don't like the idea of me playing on a gamepad on a PC while everyone else is using a mouse and keyboard. Makes it unfair haha

Anything that's not an FPS I use a 360 controller on my PC to play. And unless you play nothing but exclusives, I cannot recommend building your own enough.
