    See now I just think it is cruel to keep things on life support from the moment they were born.

    Am I the only one who sees this situation as VERY GameCube-esque?
    (Zelda title that's supposed to save the console being delayed past consoles expected life-span, leading it to be launch title of next system?)

    This is incorrect. The Gamecube had shitty third-party support, but it had some. Resident Evil, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Zero? Time Splitters 2 and Time Splitters: Future Perfect? Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes? Tales of Symphonia? Phantasy Star Online? Sonic Adventure DX and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle? Soul Calibur 2? Eternal Darkness? Beyond Good and Evil? Skies of Arcadia? Star Wars: Rogue Squadron? Even if you don't count Nintendo's games, there's still some good stuff on the platform. What's there on the Wii U? A few remakes from previous generation systems (ME:3, Batman), Call of Duty (and only one of'em), erhm... Just Dance? Gamecube's library was poor, sure, but the Wii U's is in the intensive care ward.

    It'll drop like a lead zeppelin and everyone's going to be flabbergasted like they didn't see it coming.

    X looks to be an improvement from the previous installment. If the trailers are any indication, anyway.

    How about a zeppelin filled with lead instead of hydrogen (or whatever gas you want to use, but hydrogen provides a pleasant bang after the drop)? ;O;

    I'm thinking that part of the reason XC3D is selling poorly in Japan and Europe is that it was previously released on the Wii there. Here in the states we only got a very limited number of copies of the Wii version and it seems to be doing a bit better here

    That would make sense if the Wii version was some kind of a best seller in Europe or Japan which it wasn't - it came out and nobody blinked. Xenoblade is the Earthbound of the 21st century - nobody really cares about it aside from a small number of circlejerkers.

    Much like the development of Xenoblade X.

    Don't read the comments section under that article without protective eyewear or you might catch autism. Comments range between nonsensical ad hominems like "people in the UK have no taste, all they know is how to drink beer and start bar fights over football" and "well, it's a game for a brand new platform" with a few comments that make sense inbetween. I cried. Then again, what did I expect from My Nintendo Life - fuck me, right?
