I joined thewiiu.com in early 2011. While I didn't become an active member until April 2011, I liked the site. I became active at the site after I had a falling out with the 3DS forums due to various issues coming up.
When I first arrived there, the place was awesome. It was a small community, sure, but It was close. Every member was kind to each other, and feld0 was active at least once a day. He wasn't afraid to enter discussions with us lower mortals, and I liked that. He was willing to be a friend to nearly everyoner, and was helpful. The perfect idealisms of what an Admin should be, IMO. The forum's stayed like this even after we crossed 1000 members. Everyone was usually helpful and kind to one another, and the community prospered. I made friends with loads of people, and I was happy.
I guess you could say that when I really began to have a falling out with Feld0 was at around the start of the new year. Feld0 was becoming increasingly busy with MLP Forums, and I could see why he was paying much more attention to it then thewiiu.com. I had no issues with that, but It seemed to me like Feld0 was drifting away from what had made me like the forums so much. He was logging on less and less, and seemed to be comfortable to leave stuff to the others, meaning AMAC/Brian. However, AMAC had practicably vanished from the site, leaving Brian to try and manage the site all for himself, alongside trying to set up this current site that I'm leaving to.
It wasn't just that the powers that be weren't getting less active, it also seemed that the members were getting increasingly bitter with one another. I noticed this in myself and in others. We were fighting each other over pointless rumors, getting nowhere in terms of growing as a community.
Eventually, I joined N00bpwners. I still went on the site, but I think the biggest disconnect for me went on during my 2 month hiatus from the web. When I returned back to thewiiu.com after having been gone, it felt entirely different from what I had gotten used to.Members were fighting each other, using foul language left and right, and a good chunk of the friends I'd made had either left the forums for other sites(See GC, etc) or they'd gone MIA(see wertville). I also noticed that Feld0 had made it so that the News was no longer updated on thewiiu.com. I'm not complaining, I just found it convient to be able to load up the WiiU and see all the news, with links so I could comment on it on the blog. It was stuff like that irked me.
One of the largest things that led to me leaving the place, never planning to return was the way the moderation team was acting. As you could guess, I'm a friend of Brians. As I finally got back to the web, I noticed that the rest of the moderation team had left everything from what I could see to Brian, despite Feld0 knowing full well that he had this site to run. That's probably the biggest reason I left.
I've kept my mind open about returning for a while, up until a few weeks ago. I was linked to a thread by GC and saw certain users openly smashing each other. That was the final thing that pushed me over the ledge, IMO. I had seen an once peaceful site, consisting of my friends, fall into basically 4chan with a Nintendo theme. It made me sad that a place I had considered my internet home had fallen this far, and I realized I was powerless to stop it, let alone reverse the changes. That's part of why I accepted Brian's offer to become a mod there. 3 sites that I had considered my internet home had fallen, and I was determined to not let another go the same way.
Anyways, it's been fun, the members of thewiiu.com. Some of you I hope to see again, while others I don't. Until then, in the words of the great N Harmonia Gropius, Farewell!!
If you need me, I'll be at n00bpwners.com.

Oh I make friends all the time! Even new ones. And yes I do to have thumbs to play games with. Studing is what I have to do but not all the time.
Should I delete this thread? I'm sorry.
No, Let me put on my Feld0 hat (This is a joke Feld0, don't take it personally. )
Feld0: My Name is Feld0/Twilight Sparkle. You stole my name. Prepare to die.

Yea that fan sucks
No, I'm pretty sure it blows.
Anyways, I have to say all Fanbases are the worst. Everyone sucks at different times for different reason. Metroid Fans on Other M, Pokemon Fans on B/W, Sony Fans defending over-priced memory, Nintendo fans defending the 3DS launch sales, CoD fans telling me MW is an entirely different game then MW2, etc.
Seriously, there is no one "Worst" fanbase. They all suck at different times. They be like Vaccum Cleaners.

Black and White
And i havent played 2011 Wii Games, I played the previous years ones. But i chose the game that i liked(from the trailers) and its Skylanders. I loved the unique(or is it?) idea. I also liked SS but S made me wanna jump at the game. Ill buy both at some time. Ill mostly buy SS When the Wii U releases so i wouldnt have to buy the Motion + controller and will play it on the screen
You will need Motion+ to play SS.

Trust me, it may be for you, but it's not for me. Radiant Historia, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy VI, and Bastion are some of my favourite games, and I don't put them on that level. I can see the appeal of Skyrim, but I'm not a fan of it. I'm not sure why, but it just doesn't feel like a good game to me.
Skyrim is Jesus reincarnate. Seriously, it is. Also, it's combat is awesome; only thing I don't like about is that you can't actually stab through a wolf or something -- you just slash at it.

This article confirms that I'm not going to get a Vita for a while, considering ALL of my PSP games are on UMD.
But that's not the main reason I posted this topic, if you scroll down to the comments section, the Sony fanboys are arguing about this issue. How could one detail cause a fan base to squabble amongst themselves like this?
IN THIS CORNER, WIEGHING IN AT 400 POUNDS WITH CHEETOS ON HIS SHIRT, WE'VE GOT THE SONY DEFENSE FOOORRRRCCCE! AND IN THE OTHER CORNER, CLOCKING IN AT 160 POUNDS, WE'VE GOT THE SONY FAN!!!!!! THESE TWO MEN WERE THE BEST OF FRIENDS UNTIL SONY DITCHED BC FOR THE VITA, IN WHICH THE SONY FAN CAME OUT AND SAID HE WASN'T INTERESTED. NOW LET'S GET READY TO RRRRUUUUMMMBLLEE!!!!
Basically, Sony fans are ticked, Sony Defense force is defending Sony

Do I like Cod? Well, I love fish
For a long time, I've been hating the Call of Duty franchise (Well, the Modern Warfare franchise anyways.) saying they are all too similar to each other, but I rented Modern Warfare 3 for my Xbox 360, and I really enjoyed the game, but now I feel silly. I said that I hated it for so long, but now that I think its good, I dont know... Was I wrong about it or something? I just think its repeptitive gameplay that barley changed throughout the series.
Do you guys like COD? (I mean the Modern Warfare series.)
Anyways, I can see it's appeal gameplay wise, but It's just not my forte. What I hate about Call of Duty is the impact that it's had on gaming. Call of Duty has, in attempts to copy/beat it, has ruined too many developers and games. I'm not saying that the series is bad, just that it's impact on the gaming industry is.

What did Watson say to Sherlock when they were impersonating gangesters?
Okay, time for a great joke.
A man is the Zelda Franchise's biggest fan. Let's call him Andy. He spends all his money buying every game in the series and then sets out to create a perfect timeline after playing every game and taking notes. However, upon submitting it to Nintendo, he realizes that he forgot Twilight Princess from the timeline. When Nintendo sends it back, they write a note reading:
"Looks like you are missing a Link."

Alas I am going to shelve it for a little while as I am going to work on another project that I am super excited about. I can't talk about it too much but if all goes well it might just be one of my crowning achievements as an artist....
Add this line to one of his tweets
With these two pieces of evidence, we can deduce a fair amount of whatever Retro is currently working on. The first thing that we can deduce is that Retro is NOT working on a new IP. The reasons for this are long and complicated, but the main supporting evidence lay in the fact that what besides reinventing an IP of Nintendo, one that is supposedly big enough to for him to consider it a crowning point of his career, could they be working on? I can certainly tell you that I clearly believe that a new IP, regardless of how new it may be, would not be enough to mark as a crowning achievement. No, whatever this achievement is, it has to be something being transformed for the WiiU.
From the second quote, we can deduce that Retro is clearly beginning to put full steam ahead on their project. In fact, it is during crunch time when many new employees join a company. We can also most likely deduce that this project is not gearing up for a demo for an event like E3, but it is instead the stages of a game. Most often, game demos do not begin to be made using the engine until roughly 1-2 months before E3. So all in all, we can assume that this crunch time is the final parts of the game.
A 3rd piece of evidence that we can use to determine what the new project Retro is working on is that they stated(Source needed) that they were working on a project everyone wants them to do. Let's take a look at the facts so far, shall we?
- Retro has hired a bunch of new staff on a project that is clearly something big
- Retro is entering crunch time earlier then a company would if they were pumping out a demo for E3
- Retro is working on a project that everyone wants them to do.
I basically proven the point as to why it's Mario above, but the final nail in the coffin is that no one has really given any thought into what an HD Mario would look like. To make the world's most recognizable video game mascot HD would certainly be a crowning achievement for any artist, would it not? Also, the crunch time would make sense, as it's a proven fact that Mario can sell a console and Iwata seemed certain that the WiiU would not lose money in it's first year.

Then Vote for Vermin Supreme. Zombie power FTW
Every one is crazy. All the republican candidates are bat**** insane, Obama is the same as Bush, and Ron Paul doesn't seperate church and state.
If only the people could be properly represeneted. Everyone is either from a policital family or in the hands of corporations.
