@djura: Agreed. Nintendo needs to make sure that everyone from hardcore gamers to mainstream, casual audiences understands that the NX is a brand new console with brand new features. The rumored console/handheld hybrid feature is obviously the big selling point, but they also need to make sure the launch lineup is exciting as well. Hopefully Nintendo doesn't make the same mistakes as they have in the past and the NX can immediately take off and become a hit.
Superzone's forum posts
@Coolyfett: So far I've gotten the Twilight Princess Picross game and Metroid Fusion from the service. It's not bad so far, but it could be better. I currently have about 2,000 platinum coins and I really don't have anything to spend them on.
@djura: It certainly didn't help that the name "Wii U" was massively confusing to all but the most dedicated gamers too. Was it some new add-on for the Wii? Was it an upgraded model? People had no idea. I really never understand the logic of it. The "Wii" name should have been left alone with the previous console. I'm not sure if Nintendo thought continuing the Wii brand was going to maintain the massive success they'd been having or what, but it simply didn't work out. The NX (assuming that's not the final name) needs a catchy, cool name that will instantly get people interested.
I would recommend playing A Link Between Worlds first. Not just because it's my favorite of the two, but because it's more of a traditional Zelda game. MM is definitely one of the most complex games in the series, and the hardest. I wouldn't start with that one if you're new to the series.
Sounds like a similar issue to the charging dock I used to have. The problem ended up being the dock, not the Wii remotes. My suggestion is to pop in a couple of regular AA batteries to make sure the remotes themselves are ok, and if they are I would look into either getting a new charging dock or getting new battery packs.
A few big things on my list:
A good launch
Let's face it, the 3DS and Wii U both had very weak launches. There were a few good games, sure, but both systems took a year or two to really find their legs and build up a solid library, and that's just too long to wait. The NX needs to have a great launch and be ready to follow up the launch with a great lineup of games that are only mere months away. Having Zelda: BotW right away would be very nice, but just that one game can't carry the console for 6+ months. Nintendo needs to have some great games ready to go within the first half-year.
I'd really rather not have to purchase the same Virtual Console games AGAIN
I've bought the same VC games on Wii, Wii U and 3DS. Enough is enough. Nintendo needs to fully unify the account system and let me play ALL of my currently purchased classics on my NX free of charge. Anything else is honestly unacceptable at this point. I shouldn't have to purchase Super Mario World 4 times just to have it on all my systems.
The return of Metroid
A new traditional Metroid game just needs to happen. Whether it's Metroid Prime 4 or something else, I don't care. I miss one of my favorite franchises and it needs to come back (Yeah yeah I know about Federation Force. It looks good, but it's merely a spinoff in my opinion). The launch of a new console is the perfect opportunity to get Samus back on her feet.
Alright, so this isn't exactly what I'd call a deal-breaker, but how about some neat color options with this console? The Wii and Wii U provided some pretty bland choices: black or white. I would love to see Nintendo take a page from the N64/Game Boy Color era and give the NX console multiple color variations. See-through colors would be wicked awesome too, but I won't push it.
Those are just some of my hopes and dreams for the NX. I have a lot of confidence in this console, and I can't wait for Nintendo to finally reveal it.
For me, I think it's gotta be Double Dash. That game just remains so creative with the two-racers-per-kart feature, and the courses are some of my favorites in the series. The battle mode was also incredibly fun to play.
A close second would be Mario Kart DS, which I think still remains one of the greatest handheld multiplayer games ever. And at the time of its release, it simply blew me away with the amount of content it had.
Rounding out my list:
3. Mario Kart 8
4. Mario Kart 7
5. Super Mario Kart
6. Mario Kart 64
7. Mario Kart Wii
8. Mario Kart Super Circuit
