(if it doesn't have voice chat its an immediate red flag to me)
Nintendo needs to adopt a party chat system similar to Microsoft. You can simply chat with friends in your party regardless of what game you're in, or whether you're even in a game. That would eliminate most of the discussion as to whether "x" game, or "y" game needs voice chat. It's just soemthing gamers should be able to do with their friends while they are on their console. Period.
