Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Which Wii U games are going to bomb?


Employee at GameStop said we were the only customers to pre-order this Wii U launch title. No online play, but it seems promising. We could use some arcade tank blasting fun!

Seeing how they were the only ones to pre-order this game, I am kind of thinking this one will not do too well.

ESPN may not do too well either.

 

What games do you think will bomb?



 

Around the Network

Mass Effect 3 will probably bomb hard. Then EA will go "hurrdurr our gaemz don't sell on Niitendo conzole, we outa here". And I will be like

and pick up ME3 for Wii U in 6 months from the bargain bin.



Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

I am sure they will. "Lets release a game that no Nintendo gamer will understand because they have not played the other ones, make it no different than the HD systems, and call it a day!" Hopefully it pushes a million so we can laugh in their faces!



 

Bomb sales wise - Probably a lot simply because there are actually too many launch games to be properly supported early on. Not the fault of the games but the nature of a selection.

Bomb review wise - Could also be several as teams rushed and/or were outsourced to quickly cash in on the Wii U launch.

The rEVOLution is not being televised

Given how well TTT2 sold elsewhere, the bar for TTT2 is pretty low here, given the additional handicap of a late-port-launch-title. I think it could handily meet reasonable expectations

Mass Effect 3 is going to terribomb.

Thanks for making voice acting an a-list pastime.

Back to school soon enough :/

Mass Effect 3 has been designed to bomb, and it will do so in a glorious, spectacular fashion.

Those types of numbers were fine for the Wii back in the day. Just to maybe break even. But that is not going to cut it this gen.



 

I think most titles will underperform, simply because there's too much and too many late releases:

Flop:
Mass Effect 3
Darksiders 2
Trine 2
Tanks Tanks Tanks
That 101 game whatever it's called now

Tekken Tag TeamNinja Gaiden

Mediocore:
Batman:AC
CoD:BO II (very poor compared to 360/PS3 but okay overall)
Madden

Well:
ESPN
Rabbids
Sonic Racing (probably sells best on WiiU)
ZombiiU
Assassin's Creed 3 (by far lowest of 3 consoles)
Wii Fit U (but this will be terrible compared to the original's sales)
Just Dance 4 (poor compared to JD3)
Rayman Legends (I'm just hoping here...)
Lego City
Scribblenauts

Great:
NSMBU
NintendoLand

ME3, AC3, Darksiders 2, Tanks Tanks Tanks, the 101 game. What's ESPN?
