I doubt Pikmin 3 will be enough for me to even consider buying a Wii U, but the game looks good nonetheless. The new captains all have pretty unique designs, and the new pikmin species seem pretty fun to play with (well, the flying pikmin anyway, the rock is pretty much just a glorified purple pikmin).
Aerial combat is a surprise, I didn't think Nintendo would push the flying pikmin concept that far.
Overall, I just hope Pikmin 3's as good and immersive as its predecessor.
Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
I'm far from planning on buying a 3DS. 3D is a gimmick that in no way makes my gaming experience better and I prefer to play my game on a big screen (A Game Boy Player 3DS/Wii U is a pretty good argument in favour of the later though…). I like that this game is a direct sequel to Link to the Past, the quintessential 2D Zelda game, and I also appreciate the fact that they are using the same map. But judging from the video though, one of my fears is that they re-use the exact same bosses from the first game, AND Ganondorf as the main antagonist (again). Other than that, nothing to complain about.
Donkey Kong Country : Tropical Freeze
DKCR is a masterpiece in platforming. It plays and flows well, the level design is unique and immersive, the atmosphere is varied and effective, and the remix of the original game's soundtrack might actually better than the old themes. That said, it had problems; the wii mote shaking was a gameplay killing flaw, and the art style was, frankly, pretty juvenile and kiddy, especially when compared to the original trilogy. But Retro did manage to bring us new environment and enemies, without relying too much on the established settings and characters, especially the Kremlins. As long as Tropical Freeze continues on this path (with the new controller, the shaking shouldn't be a problem), and give us a lasting experience with memorable characters (not sure about that walrus guy though… hoping he's not the main bad guy), I'm pretty confident about the new series' future.
Oh, and on the subject of DKCR on the 3DS… Remember how the GB version of the original DKC offered different levels and challenges and wasn't a straight up port? (I know there are new levels in DKCR 3D, but I doubt the overall content is that different).
Pokémon X and Y
… Why is that series still relevant and popular? And who the fuck designed those fruity looking new pokémons, like the rip off of the forest spirit form Princess Mononoke, or that bat with boobs on its head? And also "FAIRY" TYPE POKÉMON? Are you shitting me? Is the new demographic little girls?
Not much else is new about that one. I'm pretty curious to play it.
Super Smash Bros.
(That's it, just "Super Smash Bros.", not second title or anything. The fuck happed to Universe?)
Visually, the game really doesn't differ from Brawl, and you could actually say it looks worse in terms of textures and character design, but hey, even if inferior to Melee, Brawl was one hell of a game. And now you're adding Mega Man to the mix! And some Animal Crossing non-character nobody could possibly care about… but Mega Man! Nice to see that at least one gaming company still gives a shit about the blue bomber. Add to that a story mode with a boss we actually know something about and an actual opening movie and this one might be pretty freakin' awesome!
And now they added the… Wii Fit… Trainer… as a playable character… THE FUCK? They better have other better newcomers in mind…
Mario Kart 8
Don't give a flying crap about Mario Kart, well, not since the N64 game anyway. The game looks really nice though. One question: Did the Mushroom Kingdom just imploded one day and all of its locations are floating somewhere in the phantom zone?
Sonic Lost World
The bad guys in this one look incredibly stupid (except for that green girl, of course). Are they trying to kiddy up every franchise on the console?
Yoshi's New Island
Wow… This is one hell of a crappy soundtrack. And I'm not sure mixing Yoshi's Island and Yoshi's Story art styles is a good idea.
Super Mario 3D World
I… I'm done. I don't give a fuck anymore.
I won't play any new Mario game anymore.
Seriously, are you kidding me with shit? 3D? A cat suit? 4 players with that cunt and the little bastard? Was that game designed for little 5 years old girls and their dollies? What in the name of hell happened to this franchise! NSMB had its excuse, it was a throw back to the older NES titles, but the 3D series is a puke stain on the face of… the face of gaming! We were all waiting for a new epic Mario game, something on the same level as Galaxy and (especially) Sunshine, something to wash off the bitter aftertaste of NSMBU.
Give me worlds. Give me characters. Give me interesting environment to explore and jump in. Give me a new plot. Prove me that you actually give a shit, Nintendo!
But before that day, you can continue on this journey to suckitude without me. I'm jumping off here. Enjoy your primary colors, your sexist kidnapping plot, your fucking Bowser and Bowser Jr. and Koopalings and Goombas and Koopa Troopas and that waste of a fucking dinosaur without me. I'm done.
New Super Luigi U
Same fucking deal, but at least Luigi has a personality!
Legend of Zelda : The Wind Waker HD
… It's the same exact game… There is no "HD". The characters look the same, the environment look the same, the art style looks the same. The ONLY difference is light blur, which actually contradicts the Cell-shading look of the original game. At Least Ocarina of Time 3D improved its graphics.
This is preposterous…
And Rayman Legends
I want this game in my pants, right now.
All I hope about Legends is that it has a better story than Origins (or that it actually has a story that we can follow). Other than, I wouldn't mind seeing those cute as hell Nymphs too. Although Barbara's got it covered in terms of cuteness; that CG trailer starring her is freakin' amazing…
