    Nintendo & My Dog Ben

    I am gamer, first and foremost, not one of these retarded Fanboy dicks!

    When I was younger I didnt see gaming about Sega or whether they did what
    Nintendont!! I was always a Gamer first and still am!

    I was never one to argue in the playground at school, whether Sonic was better
    than Mario, who would win in a fight between Robotnik or Bowser.

    I loved both equally & was lucky enough to own each console throughout the
    Sega/Nintendo wars.

    Nintendo my old friend,you nursed me through primary school with Mario 3,
    made college bearable with Mario Kart tournaments & made me cry when I was 17
    when I realised that OoT was over as the credits rolled..... in the last few
    years I feel like you have become the beloved three legged sheep dog of my
    childhood, that as much I love, I feel that I need to reach for the 12 bore,
    take you down the shed, give you one last fuss and blow you away.

    How did you get so lost? The writing was on the wall with the Wii U long before
    it was released, you said that you recognised that you didnt market your
    products effectively enough and that this was going to change, and yet people
    still dont get it!

    "Is it for my Wii thing?" quotes from my own gran, who plays Wii Bowling with
    the bingo brigade on thursday evenings.

    Christmast just gone, I saw 1 solitary Wii U advert and a Bazillion for PS Vita
    / PS 3 and this was the launch window.

    Well there will always be E3,. oh hang on,... youve cancelled that as well!
    Brilliant, way to go Nintendo, people dont get your products and you take one of
    the biggest platforms of communicating to people on the world stage on what you are all about and you cancel that for Nintendo Direct, yeah really personal that! Iwata running around in a fucking Luigi hat, fucking genius that!

    This isnt one of many Nintendo deathknells doing the rounds, I know they have
    cash reserves that would last 100 years of mistakes and they would still be ok!
    I "loved" Nintendo, but stumping up for a new console just to play Zelda, Mario
    just doesnt make sense anymore like I did from the GameCube onwards nor do I have the inclination to!

    This is more of a love letter to my first gaming love that feels like is no
    longer with us, which makes me feel kinda sad, the magic has gone from Nintendo
    or maybe I have to admit i have finally grown up,.....

    Come on boy, come on, we have some treats for you in the shed, fetch....BANG!

    They didn't cancel E3 you big silly billy, they switched out having a big E3 conference with having some smaller ones. That's the only thing I see that you've misunderstood. The rest is just opinion. I would suggest, however, you look into the 3DS as I feel it may have some of the things you feel the Wii U is missing :)

    Leave some exclamation marks for the rest of us, don't you know a thread auto-locks if a certain number is reached?

    That tale was fat too light on the dog side.
