      This E3 was either a make or break for gamer's at large in regards to their interest for Wii U.

They provided great details on Mario 3D, Mario Kart, and X, to name a few. These games look great and they will be a...

    Wii U, a marketing problem or are the masses just not interested?

    in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 22 April 2013

      The Wii U, released 7 weeks ago in North America, has had an underwhelming response by gamers and media alike to say the least.
