The Games are finally here, Wii U!

I said in my introductory article that this is not a Nintendo news blog, therefore I don’t report on news. However, this seemed too important to not write about it. The games are finally here! I don’t know if you know but four games were released today for Wii U. Oh, and all are third-party games. Here is the list: Lego Batman 2, Sniper Elite V2, Fast & Furious and RE: Revelation. But, the point of this article is not just on these 4 games. We are close to June which means that we are closer to the release of Game & Wario and New Super Luigi U. This can only mean one thing, we are finally here!

As many of you know, Nintendo hasn’t released a game in a while. Actually, there hasn’t been any main games this whole year. This is due at the fact that Nintendo decided to delay some games in order to start a stream of releases for the second half of the year. This is when Iwata, and all of us really, hope that the Wii U will pick up momentum. This is the beginning of what I wrote about last week. Not only are the games coming, but Nintendo has started new marketing campaigns. For example, http://crowdfarter.com was created to promote Wario and it’s genius. Let’s just hope that the marketing to come are equal or better than this one.

For Nintendo, this is it. This is the moment they have been waiting for, but can the next Xbox or PS4 hype get on the way? That’s something that we will have to wait and see, the most important thing is that the games are coming, finally.

My Introduction

First of all I want to welcome and thankĀ you for landing here. I know you didn’t get here on purpose, so I don’t have a lot of time to hook you into browsing my blog and following it so let’s get to it.

Background Information

I’m just a regular guy who plays video games during his free time. I used to own a gaming news website called TWGNews a couple of years back, however I sold it and the person who bought it didn’t do anything with it. As life went on I sold my Wii not too long after that and moved on from video games a bit. Recently I decided to buy a Wii U and got back at playing video games. As a result, I found myself more and more involved in searching for news and participating in forums discussions so I decided to make my own blog. This blog won’t be were you find your latest Nintendo news, I recommend Gonintendo for that. Playing Nintendo will be used for Analysis, editorials and opinion articles written by me. (Sometimes I will write about gaming in general). I’ll tend to focus on the business aspect of the gaming industry, specifically Nintendo, and sometimes I will write some small reviews for specific games.
