Nintendo fans, and not only them... the Wii, for god's sake, deserves better.

Jesus fucking Christ on a duck. Go commit sepuuku already if you guys are gonna whine like this instead of waste space here on the VGChartz boards. We have absolutely NO FREAKIN CLUE WHATSOEVER what Nintendo's lineup will be for the 2nd half of the year outside of Zelda. NONE. You honestly believe that Nintendo has revealed everything that will be coming to Wii for the holiday season in a press relase in April?!?!?
What the hell is wrong with you people? Where is the common sense in the Nintendo forums? I feel like a bunch of the pretendo fans from GoNintendo decided to infiltrate these boards and whine it up like they normally do. Christ almighty.....
Yes this looks not so good for nintendo fans. But at least there is an interesting shooter (conduit 2) and an interesting beat'm up (thor).
But if nintendo doing it right the second part of 2011 could be full of topgames (xenoblade, pikmin 3, the last story, pandoras tower, zelda, etc.). I think in europe we will get Xenoblade in june or july.
On the other side: 2010 was packed with top-wii-games. I guess you have played not even the half of it?
Theres no 'I don't care because I have a 3DS' option?
“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.
I was mainly disappointed about Nintendo releasing this whole Wii Motion Plus and then not releasing any games for it. Flingsmash and Wii Sports Resort are the only games that have been released by Nintendo in 2 years of release. That is pretty absurd. Nintendo has no one to blame but themselves. They could have lifted the Wii back up with lots of good Motion Plus games. Skyward Sword isn't going to completely rectify this issue.
Wii Play Motion?? Stop messing around with these stupid mini-games already and build a real game.
Star Fox Wii with controls similar to the plane on Wii Sports Resort was a no brainer-- instead we get a Starfox 64 port for the 3DS. A Haunted Mansion kind of game with Motion Plus could have been great.
There were a lot of missed opportunities. This whole 5-year life cycle thing is getting pretty silly, especially when Nintendo is so overstretched trying to make games for 2 consoles that they can't support the 1st and last year of their console properly.
The Wii has been a lot wasted potential IMO. Nintendo kept releasing a bunch of peripherals and then never supported them. I'm so glad I haven't heard any more about this vitality sensor because it to would have joined the waste heap of Wii Fit and Wii Motion.
Most anticipated games of 2011:
Uncharted 3,Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Rocksmith
Modern Warfare 3, Super Mario 3D
Well I am only getting the conduit2, sticking to wiiware for the next few months... that line up is really poor, but thats ok, I just bought my 3ds and so a I am fine, Oot & DOA wii do it for me for this months...
I hope this lineup means they are saving the last story and xenoblade as E3 announcements, otherwise reggie better get some police protection...
3DS code: 1289-8222-7215
wii has been by far the worst market leader software-wise

i'm not feeling insulted at all. It surely is a weak line up, but i still have something to look up at (Conduit 2, Fast on wiiware and Chrono Trigger on the virtual console), while i'm busy with ds (dragon quest VI and solatorobo) and 3DS (DoA and Zelda).
and the second part of the year will be epic. just think about it: Zelda and Xenoblade are pretty much coming in the second half of the year. We know that The Last Story is coming too. then there titles that are coming in japan: pandora's tower, inazuma eleven wii, dragon quest x, earth seeker, rodea, rhytm tengoku wii, the new kirby game, fatal frame II remake. we should be getting at least some of theese. oh and there is pikmin 3. it should be time for that as well. there is a chance for tales of graces f too, and europe is still waiting for trauma team...
As others have already said - yes this lineup is weak, but:
1. I am certain the lineup for the rest of the year will look very diffeent
2. There are very probably more than a few good to great Wii games that you haven't played yet, many of them available at bargain prices.
For me personally I couldn't care less, even ignoring the 3DS that I bought, I have a serious backlog of Wii games I already bought
Currently Playing: Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked, Professor Layton and the Curious Village
Anticipating: Xenoblade, The Last Story, Mario Kart 7, Rayman Origins, Zelda SS, Crush3D, Tales of the Abyss 3DS, MGS:Snake Eater 3DS, RE:Revelations, Time Travellers, Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney, Luigi's Mansion 2, MH TriG, DQ Monsters, Heroes of Ruin
Nintendo releases these lists every quarter, and everytime I read them I usually see at least one game worth buying, but for the first time there's absoultely nothing here that I want.
Not that Nintendo are alone in this, my Q2 is going to be entirely supported by LA Noire, and that's it.
