Turtle Jump is a weekly video game podcast focusing on Nintendo, Playstation, XBox, and PC games, and more! Join us as we talk news, reviews, and in depth discussions of our favorite games. In this episode, we bring in special guest Andrew DiMarcangelo of the PolyComics podcast to discuss Nintendo's current troubles--their NintendWoes, if you will. Wii U sales have been abysmal, and Nintendo has posted terrible financial losses for the last couple of years. What could they do to turn the game around? What games would help them, and what policies should they change? We ponder these questions and more in hopes to find hope and a solution for the Big N's big problems.
