Ever since late July where I was told that Mega Man Universe would not be on Wiiware. I thought to myself "Wow....the Wii really is terrible when it comes to hardware..." Now I fully taken an understanding to how bad Nintendo has gotten. With titles such as Epic Yarn and Other M, it really just shows how much Nintendo just wants to innovate. Tweaking is one thing but showing how god awful they could make one of their NES/SNES heroes really shows how they really don't know how to cater to hardcore fans anymore.
I have little to no use for my Wii anymore so I officially softmodded it so I can get Brawl hacks to save replays and put them up on Smashboards. The only justice I see in playing Wii now is either playing with friends, playing Super Mario Galaxy (that Donkey Kong Country 4 and Epic Mickey being the only decent platformers on the system) and playing both Tatsunoko vs Capcom and Brawl competitively. I am ranked top 800 in the game worldwide.
It just saddens me that Nintendo doesn't care for games like Brawl and only cared for the money it would rake in. Capcom to this day is still shoveling more and more into Super Street Fighter VI which is very impressive. Capcom really shows how they are completely dedicated to their series' and giving a lot to their fans. (Off topic but I would say the same for SEGA if they made a Jet Set Radio 3. They renewed the license to the series recently so hopefully that means a new game is on the way. :3)
But still, seeing games like Gran Turismo 5 and Marvel vs Capcom 3 shows how pathetic the Wii really is compared to it's competition. Nintendo does a better job with the DS than the Wii and that is straight up my opinion.
I am hoping to get a new system. If I had to choose, it would be a PS3. I don't have money to pay for Xbox Live. I am really hoping for Mega Man Universe and Rayman Origins to come out soon so I can easily pay for those. I am commited to characters and series' not franchises. (Except for Capcom. They can take my money anyday. ;D)
I have a ton of love for characters like Mario and Fox but I don't think Nintendo really does anythiing except cater to Zelda fans, whore out Mario for profit and fap off to Samus. It's a joke and I've had enough of the lack of F-Zero and a new hardcore Star Fox game.
I still rank Mario as a top 5 favorite character, but I have no loyalty to Nintendo anymore unless they go back and make games like on the NES, SNES and N64. Wii is just a terrible gimmick that has suckered people into buying their system. And Move still feels more fluid and better than WiiMotion+.
Please don't hate me for believing in my opinions. I take it that you should all be mature enough to do that without attacking me.
Mario, Mega Man and Rayman FTW!!!
