Wow. The year of the WiiU is upon is.
Unless of course you've not yet bought one. In which case the year's line-up looks like this:
Post reply to chalkitdown on GRcade
Wii U price slashed to £149.99 with two free gaemz (Splatoon and DMLGOTF Mario Maker)
Mario Kart 8 announced as free-to-play for all Wii U owners. GR stream becomes most popular channel on Twitch; Steve comes out of forum retirement, his subsequent swear-laden tirade against noobs goes viral
Starfox U released; actually a cross between Lylat Wars & GC Starfox Adventures (except good) with elements of Metroid Prime and Fallout 4 thrown in. Early GOTY contender
Nintendo admit AC amiibo festival was a filler; full-on proper Wii U Animal Crossing announced. Best version yet
Nintendo announced its new "U MUST BUY MII" range of discount hits. Each title £9.99 + free amiibo. Dan buys Wind Waker HD, Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, Smash Bros and Tropical Freeze
Pikmin 4 MMO; Nintendo profits go through the roof; movie-tie-in announced directed by Alejandro G. Iñárritu
Mario and Sonic at Rio pulled due to IAAF doping scandal; Sega decide to develop good games instead. Sonic Boom 2 not terrible; jawa vindicated
Paper Mario U better than TTYD, absolutely nothing like the vile piece of scum that was 'Super' Paper Mario. True believers rejoice
Sony announce PS5 in order to counter struggling PS4 sales due to Nintendominance
Zelda U so good, solves international conflicts. UN announces 'World Peace Day'; Bernie Sanders' speech: "no longer shall any nation Triforce in resolving their differences". Wins Presidential race by landslide; confessed Xbox owner Trump fails to carry any states
GRcade replaces Google as default homepage for Chrome users; Dan buys Captain Toad. Slightly disappointing. But hey, it's Christmas
