The price was right the mood was spirited and whimsical with just a sprinkling of madness as I decided to tie myself to a cinder block and lob it into the deep end. I ordered myself a Wii U and 7 games that should be here by weeks end. I decided despite my patient waiting for Monster Hunter 4 on the 3DS to come out sometime this year, I’m just going to wait until the nimrods port it to the Wii U.
As it stands they have stated they have no current plans to release the game on any other system…which would be fine if I could feel comfortable using a 3DS for that kind of lengthy session style game. They generally give you 50 minutes to perform a mission and I know from my experience with Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii that sometimes you need to squeeze out ever last second. I’m not doing that with cramped hands and a godforsaken top screen sitting on hinges that don’t even lock in place, the thing jitters back and forth making me super uncomfortable. I like the system yes but that one little aspect has been a peev of mine since I got my hands on the thing.
While they might say they have no plans and people will keep asking, I’m pretty damn sure they are gonna release it. Reasons being both Capcom the the company who would port street fighter 5 Ultra Boogaloo Hadouken Edition to the Commodore 64 as well as the fact that they are also the company who seems to be suffering from financing troubles. I could take a swing in the dark and say it is the flagrantly ignored franchises that aren’t street fighter that sit in Capcoms pocket but that wouldn’t be fair, they’ve done plenty of other wrong or at the minimum stupid things.
For anyone who cares (yes you there, I am acknowledging you and considering you when typing up short posts made out of too much time and too little effort) the games I am buying are MK8, Smash Wii U, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, MH3U, 3D World and the Bayonetta 1+2 combo on a 32GB model. Gaming of recent on consoles has become uncomfortable due to the TV I usually use becoming reserved for the henceforth “Netflix PS3” and the nature of shifting consoles up and down with cables that don’t bend the way you want and TVs with to little ports for the average gamer pile into a mass of stress I do not wish to assail.
I don’t often do these small little posts as I generally like to make what I do post to be something that might be worth reading and frankly this probably isn’t all that fascinating nor will it attract any insightful comments or discussions on gaming. Ah well, Guess I’ll just stick to some pokes into your lives instead.
What “next gen” consoles do you own or want to own? What Wii U games or big games for the consoles you own are you looking forward to in 2015? In your opinion, is the Wii U a console worth getting/owning? Thanks for the brief skim of this useless post and I’ll catch you later with some REAL posts…..and blackjack…..and hookers for every gender Tumblr can imagine.
