    Are things so bad for Wii U owners that they're resorted to surfing the net rather than playing no gaems on their Wii U?

    I use my Wii U to read NeoGAF when I'm bored. So yes!

    NeoGAF, really? NeoGAF? They're worse than IGN when it comes to one-sided/biased opinions. They have no credibility, they're worse than Eurogamer in terms of notoriety. If I want to discuss topics without them devolving into blatant fanboyism, I go to another site, but that ain't one of them.

    Vita haz gaems?


    My mistake, I meant to say "Vita haz gaems that aren't for a niche audience?"

    IMO I think the Wii U and Vita both have games(good ones too)... it just that people are spoiled these days.. and want a AAAAAAAAAA game released every other day.. the VITA and Wii U are taking chance with new concepts... IDK when the fuck a game like COD AND FIFA(which i play alot) became the normal thing. some times evolution is good for bigger better stronger thing.

    I was trying to (albeit poorly) make fun of the mentality of the whole "Wii U doesn't have games, derr herr herr, herpa derp, etc" mentality that's all to prevalent nowadays. It's unfortunate, and people have already made up their minds. I don't have a vita, but maybe one of these days.... I have many Wii U games that I enjoy and do plan on getting Mario Kart 8. By and large, people are implacable when it comes to what they want in games.

    Is this a joke? The majority of those sites don't even have anything to do with gaming in the first place!

    Ideally you can post links for games that work in the gamepad, I only listed a few web based apps that I found interesting :)

    Bad luck isn't contagious, don't worry - the PSVita won't do any worse just because it's being associated with the Wii U. :P

    Eh, maybe they'll hold each other up as commercial failures.

    No offense but if not for the Nintendo logo on the system and Nintendo franchises I care for, you'd sooner see me walking out of a store with an Xbox One than with a Wii U - it's just a better system. ;)

    Can confirm, Xbox one Masterrace reporting in with substantially better good times with said system then Wii Dust Collector ;O;
    That being said I will be wiping off the dust a bit when MK8 comes out :P

    One console being better or worse than another is purely subjective, as there are people who would disagree with that in either direction. If a person likes a console more than another, then that, but saying a console is better without saying why is just confusing. Had you said "the Xbox One is better due to its game library", etc, then that would be an argument that I can agree with. Just saying "it's better than X console" without stating your opinion as to WHY, then I have to disagree. Again, not trying to argue at all, opinions are subjective, but I wished that people would explain why they prefer a console over another as opposed to saying they like X over Y without saying why.

    I like the Wii U because I grew up on Nintendo, I like their first party games, I like the backlog of being able to play Wii games and via homebrew, Gamecube games. I also like the free online, that there is my reason why I prefer it over the Xbox. Sony and Nintendo all the way. Microsoft can kiss my ass, all glory to the Xbox One!!

    I have my reasons as you have yours. This is the way debates should be done.

    Your argument really boils down to "I grew up on Nintendo" - I know the feeling, I did too. That's why I bought a Gamecube and not a PS2, that's why the first 7th generation console was the Wii and not the PS3, that's why I bought a DS first and the PSP came along later (given to me as a gift... that being said, the main reason why I bought the DS was because my lass had one :P) and that's why I have two 3DS'es in my room. That being said, I can objectively state that the Xbox One is a better system in and out of itself - liking or disliking the library is a whole different can of worms. :P

    Aaaanywho, it's time to head back to on-topic lands. :rofl2:
