I would keep it as is. Am I the only person that wants a quirky console that will eventually have a handful of exclusive Nintendo games? I love that Nintendo is oblivious to the Internet and social media. We already have PC and 4 consoles that harass us to post it to Facebook, upload it to Youtube and pointlessly tweet out our game scores. I want to turn on my Nintendo and play some Nintendo games with my friends at my house without dealing with extra non-gaming related bullshit.

I think last generation had a bigger impact at launch because most people were upgrading to huge HD televisions at the same time.
I enjoyed Heavy Rain and (most of) Indigo Prophecy, but I will probably wait until it's around $40 to pick it up. I don't agree with David Cage and him thinking the future of games is just turning them into slightly interactive movies, but I don't mind this type of game occasionally. I'm also a little disappointed that this one doesn't support the Move controller. Heavy Rain was one of the few games where motion controls actually made it better.
This sites been a godsend for me for a while. All too often I'm playing a game and thinking "Uugh...is this over yet?" and HLTB gives me a good idea.
I do the same thing. If I'm bored of a game and HLTB tells me it's only a couple more hours to go, I usually push on. Sometimes I look and realize it's another 25 hours and just abandon ship.
It's not as good as The Simpsons was in it's prime, but I will agree it has similarities. It's still adult, but without trying to be totally random or offensive like Family Guy and Archer (not that they offend me, they just try too hard lately and end up lame).
I hate to dig up old posts, but I just bought this game and heard about the difficulty spikes from various reviews. Should I play on easy, or is too easy? In RPGs I generally never avoid a battle and clear out every enemy in an area/dungeon. Is this enough? Or is it like Persona 4 where it expects you to grind each area 3 or 4 times?
Nintendo will do fine, and I hope they don't "evolve" like most people want them too. I don't want a FOURTH (counting PC/Steam) machine with the same multiplatform games. I don't want to be bombarded with twitter/facebook feeds, Skype, NFL stats and other non-gaming related garbage when I turn on my console. I just want to play Nintendo games on my Nintendo, and everything else on PC (or PS/Xbox if not on PC).
I've been using the gamepad instead of the wiimote and haven't really had any issues. You are able to lock onto specific areas which makes up for not having precise aiming controls. Having the map on the gamepad is a huge help and being about to rotate your view instead of snapping it constantly behind your character is nice. Both sets of controls work well, and can be used simultaneously. I'm mainly using the gamepad because it rarely gets any use other than NintendoLand.
Also, when you lock onto an enemy or object, press B to make all your pikmin charge at it.
