Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
[...]
The pines were roaring on the heights,
The wind was moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.

QFT. I know several die-hard nintendo fans that... just don't seem to care anymore. I have numerous theories as to why, but it really seems like a trend.

Realize that several people who grew up with a NES, SNES, and/or N64 already have children, and therefore a lot less time to devote to such things...

And as with most new consoles, the biggest games were not released on the same day. Zelda is slated for 2013, I guess (lol, Zelda always gets delayed), but it's going to take a year or two before the games that people, especially Nintendo fanboys, really want are released.

It's not like they don't have other consoles which they aren't avidly using.

But, in the case of the people I am speaking of, they were excited for the Wii even beyond Twilight Princess.

Sure, but if it was something that blatant I would have mentioned it. Again, the people I'm thinking of are still regularly to be found at game-stores on certain Tuesdays. They're just not doing that sort of thing for Nintendo stuff anymore.

So basically your argument is similar to what I said: "People changed."

But in addition to that, the WiiU hasn't spun up to be in line with the multi-platform game launches, there aren't that many "great" games yet, and despite the tablet controller, there isn't as much to differentiate the WiiU from other consoles, while the Wii offered something completely different that could not be matched by the 360 or PS3 at the time.

I'm just saying that you shouldn't be surprised if there is little chatter at the moment. Each console release has its own quirks.

so, I have some prescription decongestants I take when my nose gets plugged really bad. THey're kind of a last resort (mostly because they're more expensive than an OTC) but have never had any side effects until today.

Took one at 7am cause I could not frigging breath, and, well, it unplugged more than I meant it to :evil: And now I'm a shakey, sore, tired mess. But I can breath. Honestly, toss up on if it was worth it.

Maybe you're getting sick and the additional symptoms aren't side effects from the decongestant.

Actually, no. If anything, I'm just implying what you just said yourself in the last two paragraphs: there are reasons pertaining to the WiiU that are why there is "less chatter."

Hmm Diet Dr. Pepper. My drink of choice, particularly when it's cut with Kracken rum.

Job search don't fail me now...I'm somehow in charge of setting several statewide policies and no matter what I do I'm going to piss people off :lol: Either that or the policies woudl be so weak as to be irrelevant and thus not fix the concerns...

Ugh. Have to work on Friday. This 4 day/week man is quite used to not working on Friday (3rd time in 16 years). It's also a 3:30PM engagement. Those who understand the regulatory business know what that means.

I would enjoy a 10hr/4day schedule... I wouldn't take Fridays off, though. 3 day weekends are nice, but having a free day on Wednesday always worked out well for me.
