Excerpt: Pikmin has always been considered an iconic Nintendo series, despite the fact that there have only been 3 installments in 12 years. When Pikmin 3 was announced as a Wii U launch title, it was an exciting moment.
Summary: When Nintendo saw what "realistic polygon-powered graphics" were possible on the GameCube/Xbox/PS2, their first instinct wasn't to make a game about human beings doing crimes, saving the world, or even talking to each other. It does not seem that Hollywood-style activities are in Nintendo's DNA.
Excerpt: I feel like a pancake being cooked when it comes to the Wii U. I am flipping, and flopping all over the place. I just want it to be cooked completely through. I want to avoid that doughy taste in the middle if I can help it.
Excerpt: When you really boil it down, Nintendo's success can be attributed to its ability to turn the mundane into the fantastic. A short Italian plumber, a small boy from a village, all made to be more than they were.
Conclusion: So has the wati been worth it? Your Pikmin 3 adventure will take you between 10-20+ hours, depending on how many fruits you collect, challenges you complete and Bingo-battles you wage. Each mode has allot of content but can be raced through quickly and seems to be built with replay-ability in mind.
