Gamerscore: Nintendo Goes Down the Pipe

Ladies and gents, boys and girls, prepare to be astounded, bedazzled and otherwise, stupefied. It’s Jeffrey Wilkinson making a big splash to the blog scene with some gaming stuff to boot. Gamerscore is going to be a monthly blog that talks about games. Good games, bad games, games with good stories, games that I like, and anything else you can think of that relates to games.

Thus our first topic, Nintendo. The ship of Nintendo seems to slowly be sinking as the Wii U dropped their hopes. But at least one thing remains. If they can release Super Smash Bros. with good sales, they might be able to save their sinking ship for a few more years. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire might also patch the holes that their failures created.

Nintendo tried, releasing game after game, system after system, but they still seem to be sinking faster and faster. Nintendo had reported loss of over $450 million, since they keep making more consoles and games than they are selling. Nintendo has seen this crushing loss, due to its lack of hit titles for the Wii U, but they hope to rake in enough cash from the remakes of Ruby and Sapphire, the new Smash Bros. for 3DS and the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors, and Bayonetta 2. They hope that these eagerly awaited smash hits will turn their misfortunes around.

But will they? Many hundreds of thousands of Nintendo fans argue and bicker. “The loss will totally outshine their gain. Nintendo is dead.” “No! If they continue at this pace, they will definitely gain a profit by the end of the quarter.” Or if you hate Nintendo, you could say it was dead from the start.
