Looks like we'll be seeing N64 games hitting Wii U's virtual console pretty soon! What 64 games would you guys like to see there?

Okay, so this has been confusing a lot of people lately so I thought I'd briefly try and clarify this issue somewhat. In 1996, a Japanese company called Victor Interactive, (now known as Marvelous Interactive) created a game called: Bokujō Monogatari.
Marvelous Interactive wanted the game to be released in North America, and so a Japanese company called Natsume, had their American branch in charge of translating and distributing the game in the West. Natsume changed the name to Harvest Moon, to appeal more to North Americans.
Ok, so now back to the present.. Because Natsume has the patent for the name 'Harvest Moon', Marvelous was unable to use that name, and so Xseed-an American subsidary of Marvelous was in charge of production and named their new title: Story of Seasons.
Natsume is creating an entirely new farming franchise with Lost Valley,...
Mario Maker is something I've always dreamt of being able to do... Create my own Mario game, and I can't wait till its release in early 2015.
That being said, I don't think I'd be prepared to pay 60 dollars for the game from what I've seen, unless Nintendo has a lot more for the game up their sleeves that they haven't revealed yet.
This is a game that would highly benefit from sharing level designs through a social network, and being able to play friends levels, or rate/comment on random designs (similar to Brawl). I'm really hoping Nintendo will push the social aspect of Mario Maker, and have a ton of DLC as well.
I personally think 40 dollars would be a reasonable price for this game, what do you guys think?
Looks like the Wii U may finally be turning its dismal sales around, and is finally starting to move units!
Reports of hardware sales following the release of Mario Kart 8 have already been reported to have quadrupled sales. It seems that Nintendo is finally stepping up to the plate and is beginning to realize that Hardware doesn't sell by itself, there still fundamentally needs to be an abundance of great software at its core. Mario Kart 8 was only out for 2 days or so during May, and already the numbers are that high. Some reports say Wii U sales are up 90% since last year.
During E3, Twitter was also abuzz with #Nintendo tweets, Nintendo received almost 50% of all E3 related tweets during E3. If Nintendo's momentum keeps up, it will be interesting to see what this bar chart looks like in a few months time.
Great news for Metroid fans!!
It looks like we may be seeing more Metroid soon, possibly in 3D-like the Prime series, as well as a throwback to the original 2D Metroids. As a huge fan of both of these styles, I couldn't be more excited for both equally. What do you guys think, which style of Metroid do you prefer...2D or 3D?
To be honest, when I first saw the trailer for Splatoon I wasn't that interested in it, but the more I watched gameplay footage, the more it's quickly become one of my most anticipated Wii U games. Nintendo is hoping it will do for the shooting genre, what Mario Kart did for the racing genre, and Super Smash bros. did for the fighting genre, and I really think they have a good chance at achieving that. What do you guys think?
Here's the trailer and some gameplay footage in case you haven't seen it yet:
What controller do you prefer using when you play smash bros.?
I remember when it came out for Wii most of the people I know used GameCube controllers because we liked them better than the Wii gamepad and of course using the motion controller is impossible. That and we all had a couple lying around already.
I may as well make this a poll!
