Is this John Lucas? http://www.youtube.com/user/Doctre81/videos
Look at the subscriptions (only Nintendo and wrestling and related stuff) and see the amazing lack of sense and hilarious spin in the videos ("yes, the Wii U beat the PS4 due to supply constraints, that's not my problem"). Amazing arrogance and huge ego as well, twittering and linking his stuff all over the web. It's just classic John Lucas all the way.

Did you know that being straight in today's world is harder than being gay? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=5880769
Not long ago, I would have thought that we could never possibly have been friends. Now look at us go. Thanks for the add!
Also, it surprises me that you don't have an Xbox One, right?
I do! I bought one at launch :)
I thought we were already friends, didn't I add you? That's weird.
But since I am no hater, and since I like MS very much (Windows 7 user since day one, and a supporter of the Windows Phone OS, and I've had the first 2 XBoxes as well), I don't think the situation in which we are NOT friends should last.
I think you're one of the most reasonable XBox supporter out there. Not hiding your bias behind a misguided sense of "I want people to think I'm perfect so I'm unbiased", and you're not condescending, hateful, spiteful and disingenuous like most others XBox fans.
It's especially more than due time we become friends now that we see eye to eye and are having fun with a common friend.
FUD spreading, talking out of one's ass, being overly unreasonable, talking out of pure blind fanboyism (which prevent to be fair and reasonable), or when someone is a hypocrite, belittling someone while doing the exact same thing he condemns, etc...
I need to tone it down sometimes, and will most likely get banned a few times again. But I'm no hater. I enjoy all consoles, all great games no matter what systems they're on, including PC. Even if my preference lies with the Sony hardware (very close second is Nintendo, then there's Microsoft with Fable [Fable 2 being one of my all time favourite games).
So all this contributes to make my hobby a really expensive one. ='(
In any case, not sure I've changed all that much. But I grow older (I'm 32), there are more and more moments when I think "don't get involved in this. He isn't worth your time". =P
Some people calls this wisdom. But I don't consider myself a wise man. -__-
It's great you have all systems, dunno how you find the time let alone the cash! I'm happy with just one as always, even then I'd say I'm a bit of a casual gamer really.
I get on with a lot of Sony fans these days, actually I find myself hyping up PS4 sales more than anything else as I know it'll be the big winner this gen, so there is not much for me to argue there, expect for the (hopefully) US & UK battle, that'll be fun! Most of my time is spent tormenting poor Nintendo fans that don't think WiiU is doooooomed.
I think viva vocé will help it over time. As a second console, the Wii U will be very well positioned. Being cheaper, with a game catalogue very different from the other big 2. It's unfortunate that it isn't selling better already. But I think this had to happen for Nintendo to wake up and deliver something that is more in-line with what third parties demand.
Yeah, sure, graphics don't necessary make good games. But great tech allows for far more than just better graphics. But that being said, people demand good graphics. Good Physics. Good AI, bigger game worlds, with better animation, voice acting, etc...
Nintendo needs to catch up with the other. With the Wii U, they've managed to build a really good foundation for a great online environment. They need to continue in this direction they've built for themselves (about online), but they also have to make it easier for third party developers to make their vision possible on their platform. It's not like they don't have the funds to create such a machine. The Wii has made them a crapload of cash, and they're the only company that has always been profitable. They can compete with the other players with no problem.
They're just too stubborn. They create a system THEY want to develop for. They tell others what they should like. While this is a behavious that is required to truly innovate, it's also important to balance it with the costumers expectations.
The Wii was a gamble. One that managed to be successful, ground-breaking and disruptive. But you can't reinvent the wheel every 5 years. They got cocky a little, I think. And the people have so far responded negatively. It doesn't help that the media have been quite harsh with it too. And people like Pachter (seriously, this guy is a joke), no matter how moronic and retarded they actually are, have a huge impact on the company's image.
Of course, Nintendo is responsible for a lot of the consumers' perception, but still, those hits from desperate attention seeking nobodies like him and a few butthurt devs do a lot of undeserved harm to the company. Because, once all is said and done, the Wii U is still a very nice console. And everyone should play Super Mario 3D World at least once (and if it happens only once, preferrably with 3 others people). =P

Those numbers are not attainable. They are ripping those numbers apart! Can it turn it's self around like the 3DS? Maybe.

osed125 said: Seece said: Nope, still an incredibly weak argument. You can't claim they're twins just because they get third party games (and I bet bottom dollar if WiiU got all those third party games you wouldn't be calling them them the HD triplets.)I suggest you go play an Xbox One and PS4 and you'll see they do things very differently, Xbox One is very focused on Kinect,...
Aielyn said: Seece said:Yeah, just because the games don't have cartoon graphics they're exactly the same. What a joke, this just shows you how much you fail at identifying diversity. You can't find anything like Dead Rising, Ryse, Zoo Tycoon or Killer Instinct on PS4, and you can't find anything like Knack or Resogun on Xbox One. Great job constructing that strawman. I...
