REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

StarDrive 2 Review
A 4X strategy game in space. Sounds like a perfect match, right?

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

Wii U Fails To Break 500,000 In Worldwide Sales Over Six Months

Posted on Wednesday, October 30 @ 06:00:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo has revealed the six-month sales numbers for Wii U, confirming that the struggling HD console only sold 460,000 worldwide for the period ending September 30th. The company told investors that "the Wii U hardware still has a negative impact on Nintendo's profits."

That said, it's not all bad news, as this past quarter was an improvement compared to the one prior. When breaking up the six-month period, the first quarter saw approximately 160,000 in sales versus this past quarter's 300,000. Hey, at least there's improvement, right?

The Big N hopes to turn things around and isn't changing its 9 million unit goal by the end of fiscal 2014, despite the fact that current lifetime sales are still under 4 million. The company plans to turn things around by "proactively releasing key first-party titles towards the coming year in order to regain momentum for the platform."

Fortunately Nintendo's handheld line is a very different story, with 3DS hardware and software sales reaching 3.89 million and 27.38 million units, respectively, during the period. 

Do you think the Wii U will eventually make a comeback? Will the likes of Super Mario 3D World and 2014's Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart 8 be enough to turn things around?
