Forums - Nintendo Discussion - As a Nintendo fan I feel relief with the current drought.

excuses, I have never seen fans make as many as Nintendo fans do. There are freaking 87 million users, I doubt most of them has that backlog, they have different taste, you can't just spend months ignoring the consoles. Adding insult, you have fans defending this shit. 

Go tell that to the Japanese people who buying less than 8k right now, this is the console leader, you can't take breaks.

Ah I see the negative train has arrived in a otherwise nice little thread looking at it a different way than you. I will help point you in the right direction if you wish to be negative on what some people are finding a bit of postive in. --------> http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=127188&page=8&str=344136252#7

I couldn't care less about the userbase. I couldn't care less about Japan sales. I couldn't care less about Wii sales in fact, beyond wanting a company that makes me happy to be rewarded.

All I really care about is me. And MY point is, I totally agree with the sentiment of the OP. I am not in denial, I am not defending anyone, I just couldn't care less if new games for my taste come out right now or not because as it is I have a serious backlog, and no, it is not a backlog of Lair like games. I just don't have the time I thought (hoped) I would have, and have even stopped buying Wii games I still would like to play (of which I have a failry long list) because of that, unless they are in a serious bargain price and one step from being unfindable.

Yes there is somewhat an exception to that rule, the 3DS, but I will be playing it in very different circumstances (e.g. late at night in bed, something I can't do with a console), and between Ghost Recon and a plethora of DS games I have never played (since I haven't had a DS) such as 999 which I also bought I am set until (and well after) OOT comes out...

Where the heck are you getting that from?  Last week was not 8k in hardware and ten times that in software... psrock I really don't know why you're taking such offense to a thread not negative and you have to insist everyone needs to be negative, we get it you like to make these statements cause you've got something to prove, other people have their own views, personally I own all the current consoles, there's a bit of a drought in games I want no matter the console, last game I REALLY wanted on home consoles was LBP2, and that was in Jan... it's been 3 months since then... does that mean I'm negative and whing about PS3? Am I whining about 360?  Am I whining about Wii?  

No I'm using this time to catch up on my gaming and play my portables... and using the money to flesh out my classic games collection.  

Seriously different strokes for different folks, it's mighty funny the demographic wanting to whine about other consoles, just as you're suspect of "Nintendo fans" motives many would be suspect of your motives... just saying >_>

I don't know I did get some older games for the ds that I missed earlier but I would rather be playing the new Zelda than anything I by passed. They were passed for a reason which was that there was something better available now that there's nothing I have to go back to the second rate game I passed by.

 While I agree with the OP, my backlog is not that big, I normally play 2-3 hours every other day and several hours when I am off (not all the time, but still) I havent got enough pokemons yet, and the conduit 2 is just around the corner... Probably I am going to use this time to play metroid the other m for a second time (I know some people hate it, but I love it) and probably a good round of no more heroes2... I really like beating games 2 or 3 times just for the fun of it, so probably I'll be going back to some of them... The only thing that I missed was a confirmation for xenoblade and the last story, actually thats the reason I think for all the hate, as long as we get it I dont really mind, hoping for a fall release...

We shouldn't be excusing the drought just because it might benefit us personally. The fact remains that a console that has 86 milion users should not be receiving this few games, and the blame is on Nintendo just as much as it is on third parties.

Sure, if we're speaking personally, I am sort of relieved, because I simply do not have the money to buy more games right now, and I have plenty of games to catch up on that I already own. Though obviously this is not the case for everyone, and Nintendo is risking pissing off a lot of Wii gamers, or at least cause them to move on to other consoles. However, I am confident that E3 will change this, much like last year.



Well, since there's over 10 games I want for the Wii alone...yes, I'm happy. It also means I'm not buying new games just before exams...

I've mentioned this earlier, but it's nice to have some good, solid, logical opinions on this sort of thing for once. Doom is nice, but it's time for a break from it me thinks.

 

Does this mean the whole drought thing is over for good now? Can we be quiet about it and just, I dunno, move on?



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

The trouble is this drought coincides with a drought of interesting games to me on the PS3 as well. I've never been a major FPS fan but the major releases this year have been Crysis, Bulletstorm, Homefront, Killzone and LBP. So LBP aside (which I don't think is cheap enough to warrant a purchase yet), practically all FPS on PS3 plus limited Wii release schedule plus not much of a backlog equals milky not getting much playtime lately.

And there's not much in the next few months either, and not just for the Wii. I was supposed to be holding out till later this year for a 3DS but I may just crack if LA Noire (which is the only imminently releasing game I'm looking forward to on any platform) doesn't turn out to be all that...
