I understood you, and I am NOT saying that the HD consoles are in a drought, just that if most of the games named were Q3 and onwards, they are not in themselves any proof of a lack of a CURRENT drought in the HD consoles. The drought people are talking about for the Wii is until end Q2, not in Q3 and Q4.

Meh, not sure on the dates of them but I know a few are in the current Quarter.

ok, that's what I was asking you (it was not a rhetorical question...) since I don't follow HD games much beyond knowing they exist...

Wow. You are dead wrong sir. You are grasping at straws now lol. Accept it, Nintendo is in a severe drought. There are 0 quality games coming out. Luckily, a new system is likely to be announced, but that does not change the fact 0 good games for the wii are coming out anytime soon.

Good HD console games

Battlefield 3

UC3

Twisted Metal

Socom 4

La Noire

Portal 2

Infamous 2

Gears 3

Resistance

Forza 4

and so many more.

I agree. A lot of the games that I simply grew to dislike are now looming again thanks to not having any money to buy new games, and not having any new games out. 

Thankfully, the only game I really need is little king's story, so I'll just replay that when I'm done. Nintendo can wake me back up in a few years.

@conegamer  good move on serving MS, seriously kinda funny. TO be fair there was a thread or 2 about MS' lack of 3rd party support, howevever. We expect much more from Ninty than MS (at least i do) especially when it comes to 1st party. Its kind of understood that MS 1st party isnt all that. Sony is the only one kicking ass this year. But dont worry they are going to have a drought next year for PS3 while they support their NGp if they dont then they are trully monsters among men

Oh yeah, I'm well aware of that.

But the problem isn't just for Nintendo, even if it is the worst...

I mean, how many games are there coming out for the HD consoles in May onwards? I can count but a few...they'll be a drought for all consoles. 

 

And like someone said, you can't expect a Mario Galaxy or Metroid Prime EVERY MONTH. That's not the way Nintendo works

oh hell no.... :D you need to check the line up again...there is NO drought for ms or sony..at all

For me, this year, we have had:

360- Nothing. Coming up- Gears 3, Portal 2

Wii- Nothing. Coming up- Conduit 2, Skyward Sword, Xenoblade, The Last Story, maybe Pandora's Tower

PS3- Little Big Planet 2, maybe Killzone 3. Coming up- Uncharted 3.

 

So I know which one has the most games I want coming up anyway

sure but that's not what you said now is it...which is a blatent lie to say the least. There will be NO drought for HD consoles no matter how you say it. Carl did a good job listing some of the more known games...if you add XBL and PSN games (there are some real gems like Jounrney coming up, new games not rehashed versions of older games)...so no..there is something for everyone...

Again, are you talking about Q2? I see Conegamer's mistake, he wrote "May onwards", to which people are responding. But the drought discussed by most is a Q2 drought. To say "There are 0 quality games coming out"(unless you meant Q2 - in which case why did you name Q3 and Q4 games as well?)  is beyond wrong. Of course anyone can claim that they think Zelda, the upcoming Kirby and Xenoblade (and possibly, though it's not certain it's coming this year, Last Story) will not be quality games, but that would be on par to saying Uncharted 3 and Gears 3 will not be quality games...

For April:

Conduit 2

PS3: 

Portal 2

Mortal Kombat

360: 

Portal 2 

Mortal Kombat

On this list that I care about?  Portal 2

May:

3DS: 

Dead or Alive

All consoles LEGO PotC

PS3 & 360 :

LA Noire

On that list that I care about?  LEGO Pirates on 3DS

June:

Wii:

Wii Play: Motion

PS3: 

inFamous 2 

PS3 & 360:

Shadows of the damned

PS3, 360, PCl:

Alice, Duke

3DS:

Resident Evil

OoT

Games I actually care about?  RE, OoT, and Shadows of the damned.

So there's like 2 PS3 and 360 titles that I'm interested in for the next couple of months... one of which I'm only getting on PS3 cause it comes with a PC copy of the game...

Conduit 2 and Wii Play Motion are maybes so there's two Wii titles... amazing most of my focus is on 3DS since dead or alive is another maybe for me...

It's a typical summer drought, the games I've listed will likely interest a decent section, be it casual or core or niche, it'll appeal to the vocal ones that get online  

There's just not that many notable games cause you know... it's getting closer and closer to summer... E3 is always quiet for releases...  Even then the releases coming out aren't for everyone...

Good HD console games

Battlefield 3 (November)

UC3 (November)

Twisted Metal (October)

Socom 4 (BAD GAME)

La Noire (May)

Portal 2 (April)

Infamous 2 (June)

Gears 3 (November)

Resistance 3 (September)

Forza 4 (October)

and so many more.

Nobody is saying that there is drought for the next quarters in the HD front, but for Q2 there are not many great games coming out, specially exclusives.

@Conegamer.

I said drop in the ocean as in there are many more games releasing/to be revealed, not just the ones I named.

Surely it's the same thig for the Wii though?

Who knows what will be announced at E3...and only Portal 2 and Mortal Kombat that I can think of are coming out this quarter for the HD consoles...the Wii has Wii Play:Motion and Conduit 2, so they all have some big games, it's just people decide to ignore that and pick on Nintendo due to its party games. Which is unfair.

Just speaking in general there

True, but it's the same for all consoles. We're talking about Q2 ONLY, so UP TO JUNE, ONLY.

And as others have already said, there's only a couple big games for each console in Q2. It's a summer drought, it happens for all consoles.

Oh, you can add Carnival Games to the 360 list if you'd like. We aren't gonna buy it, but it'll still be a million-seller. So just because the games will sell millions, doesn't mean they're good games, SOCOM 4 is an example of this if reviews are correct.

Hey, I never said the Wii was having the drought, you did

I argued in one of the threads that the Wii isn't having a drought at all. Nintendo and 3rd parties are just catering to the userbase that's there...
