I remember the time when I decided to grab a Wii U. I had my first job and my parents allowed me to get any game console of my choosing. Of course, after analyzing every option, and to my friends' protests, I got myself a $250 Wii U bundled with Smash and Splatoon. Lemme say that I can understand why people are frustrated with the system. I admit it has it's flaws, like its measly 32 GB of internal storage, it's measly library of games and a handful of other complaints that I'm not personally bothered with. But despite all of this, I don't think I would enjoy any other console as I had enjoy my time with the Wii U. As small as its selection of games are, I enjoyed my time with them. In fact, the release of Xenoblade Chronicles on the Virtual Console made me super glad that I got a Wii U, as that game became my personal favorite game of all time ever. I would bring my console over to my friends' and we would all spend COUNTLESS hours on Smash. For online fun, I would Skype a friend as we play Splatoon together. It's not just the fact that the console had good games, it's the memories of playing those games that count and I think that's why getting a Wii U was an excellent choice.
But sadly, that would not last forever.
With Nintendo ceasing all support for it since the Switch's release, the Wii U's just been collecting dust on my shelves, a terrible fate for any electronic. I decided to put it to good use and trade it in to Amazon so that it may find another owner that can take better care of it. I will not be getting a Switch immediately, not until all my school work is taken care of, and hopefully by then Nintendo would address their hardware issues.

As I watched everything being removed from the system, I could not help but feel sadden by how the Wii U would be remembered by many as a "flop". Considering how much time I put into the system, I would say that I still cherish the memories I had with it, and that was not a sign of failure in my eyes.
Adieu, Wii U. You may be removed from my living room, but you will always find a home in my heart.

It's no secret that Nintendo hasn't been doing well the past few years. I own a Wii U, and I have played some of the best games ever on it: Xenoblade Chronicles (not X, I also own X, but it shrivels in comparison to the original), Smash Bros, Splatoon, Mario Maker! But I cannot deny it's flaws. It's internal storage is incredibly tiny and the small library of Virtual Console games have been some of the complaints I have with the system. It's sad that it'll forever be known as a flop in the coming future.

Anyway, the Wii U has finished digging it's own grave, and although it's sad to see it go, it's also time to look forward. Last night, Nintendo showcased it's upcoming console in a video presentation, the Nintendo Switch. With many fans divided on how they view this handheld-console hybrid, we all unanimously agree that this video would determine the fate of not only Nintendo sales, but also the future of the company as a whole.

And after watching this presentation, I say that Nintendo nailed it. I have never been excited for a console in my whole life.

SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY!
SPLATOON 2!
XENOBLADE 2!
FIRE EMBLEM WARRIORS!
o yay...skyrim...
SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI 5!
ZELDA!

Nintendo please...my wallet won't last...

This far exceeded what I've been expecting! yeah, no word on Monster Hunter, Metroid, Smash Bros and the like, but it's amazing of how much of this reveal hasn't been leaked or even hinted at! There are other titles like Arms and that Switch party game, and they look fun too!

The only bummer was the fact that it's online multiplayer service isn't free anymore, and I'm hoping beyond hope that it wouldn't be pricey....but they do promise free SNES games with that subscription, with online play?

I dunno.
My mind is just too busy with the Xenoblade and Fire Emblem hype!

Hopefully, I can get back to updating my status regularly instead of rarely. I've been planning on doing some intense practicing with my art skills over the break and am currently working on a secret project. I had this idea for about a year and I hope beyond all hopes that I can get myself to finish it ASAP! I won't say what it is yet, but know that it involves 3D and one of my favorite games of all time!
How about a little funny story? Me and a group of friends decided to do a Secret Santa a few weeks ago. My personal rule when giving gifts this year is to not give anyone any video games or gifts cards. I had absolutely no idea what to give my person, he's not exactly the type who loves everything, even the closest of his friends don't exactly understand his tastes. So me and two friends went over to the mall to pick out our gifts, and while we were browsing through GameStop, I found this Pikachu onesie.

We all thought it would be the perfect Secret Santa gift, and knowing my person, he would either give me a hug or strangle me or both. But that dream was dashed when I went up to the counter and I found out that the price was $40 (the price tag said $20 btw, so i dunno what to believe anymore). In the end, I ended up giving him a book along with a couple of card games, all of which he enjoyed, so yay!
So that was the past week for me, I hope you guys have a Happy Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, New Years and I'll be sure to post alot this coming month!

I watched a friend playing as a werewolf in Skyrim, I started and finished playing To the Moon, and there was a super moon in the last week, so I figured that I would continue the trend by playing Pokemon Moon.

My brother would be playing Sun at the same time.
