Drip, drip, drip Nintendo Q2 releases

Nintendo released their Q2 games list (found after the jump) in the middle of all the GDC hoopla this week. It's not a "drought" with games like Mario Party 8 and Gamecube's mid-semester transfer Super Paper Mario, but we still aren't seeing the Wii original titles that give the system purpose. It's almost as if the Wii is just two duct-taped Gamecubes with gimmicky controls and no real purpose -- nahhhhhhhhh.

On the other hand, the DS is getting more Pokemon with Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl. We're expecting commercials featuring Prince and the New Power Generation singing Diamonds and Pearls. And honestly, isn't Pokemon all Nintendo really needs?
