Can Nintendo Win Back Hardcore Gamers?

The Nintendo Wii and its motion capabilities were certainly innovative ideas when they came out, but lacking hardware relegated the Wii to be the console of Cooking Mama and Wii Sports while the other platforms went on to feature the more demanding titles. With their Wii U E3 lineup this year, Nintendo seems to be on a mission to prove that they can once again do more than casual gaming. With big titles like Mass Effect 3 and Batman: Arkham Asylum Armored Edition headed for their new console, will Nintendo be back in the good graces of core gamers? The video below shows some of the titles they hope will bring us back on board.

Breanna has been gaming since infancy, if gnawing on an unattended controller counts as playing a game. One of the younger members of the Gaming Trend family, she dabbled in PC games as a kid but wasn't fully consumed by the hobby until the sixth generation of consoles. Now an avid PC and console gamer, she looks forward to the day when she can scape together enough cash to join the next gen club.

In the last week of middle school, a math teacher taught her how to program a calculator; she was pretty much hooked then and there. Currently working towards a degree in Computer Science and Applied Math, Breanna hope to someday make games instead of just writing about them. Other hobbies include playing guitar, binge-watching Netflix, and cooking delicious food.
