-AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAwwwwwwwwww shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii its Wii/PS3/Xbox360 all over again.

You're right.  As an aside, these were the type of threads that were popular during the "good ole days of 2008".  Some random developer would downplay the Wii, or hype the PS3/360 and youd have a s-storm incoming.  At least that is back...I guess.

Could mean the site is going to move into a new heyday.

All we need is for our prodigal creator to return...

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

Probably the first unfiltered comment from a developer on Wii U's power.

This is bad news fro me considering Metro LL is one of my top 3 most anticipated games. I would have gotten it on Wii U over PC if given the option. My comp had some significant frame rate drops down to almost 20 FPS during some of the more intense over world sequences. Last Light looks to improve on the graphics and is honestly one of the best looking games I've ever seen. Guess this means I'll be upgrading my graphics card.

Shakarak on Nintendo Switch, Steam.

Was anybody planning to buy Metro: Last Light on here? I saw a demo play and it just bored me.

I don't think the Wii U will be competing with the next Xbox or Playstation (since it's not trying to) graphically, but even a Sony fan like myself can see that it will eventually produce better looking games than the PS3.

I do however, predict that the Wii U will not get the third party support Nintendo was hoping for. It'll probably do as good as the GC did.

I am the Playstation Avenger.

Remember what Epic's Mark Rein said this summer about the Wii U. Here is the quote about Unreal 3 and 4. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/07/unreal_engine_4_ports_possible_on_wii_u

You saw games at the Nintendo press conference again this year - a fantastic demo by our friends at Warner Bros. showing Arkham City running on Wii U. And Aliens: Colonial Marines is coming on Wii U, that's also Unreal. There's, I'm sure, several others. Mass Effect [3] was announced for it as well. So we're certainly playing a role there with Unreal Engine 3.
I'll state that I don't think it's our intention to bring Unreal Engine 4 to Wii U, but Unreal Engine 4 is going to be supremely scalable. We'll run on mobile phones and on a wide variety of things, so if a customer decides they want to port an Unreal Engine 4 game to Wii U, they could. But Unreal Engine 3 is a really good fit for that platform.

it doesn't matter what links you give people they will still only believe what sounds good in their minds!

Well, I guess I just won't be even considering buying their game. Also, they seem like a poorly skilled development team based on their comments, so I'll make sure to ignore them in the future.

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Okay, where is the dribble coming from. I have the Wii U, PS3 & 360 and I can tell you that the graphics on Blops2 are in no way, shape or form worse than the 360 version, so obviously, the system is at least as capable. This was a quick and dirty port of the game and it looks at least as good if not better and functions perfectly. I own all the system and love playing on all of them. I'm sick and tired of the biased BS in these forums. If you're a true gamer and don't own all of the systems, you are only doing yourself a disservice. If you can't afford them all, fine than buy the one you will like the games most on, but whay do you feel the need to go into topics on the other systems and cause trouble. It seems like these forums are filled with a bunch of 12 year olds.... If you go into a forum for a product that you don't have or like and talk smack about it, that says more about you than the product. What a bunch of losers.

Stop hating and start playing.

So they are basing this on an "early look" at the CPU? Okay, that is pretty much useless. Next?

Clock speed can become nigh-inconsequential (well, maybe not inconsequential, but still) depending on what enhancements/streamlining the CPU has.

Metro 2033 was  a very heavy cpu usage game. My guess is that they will go the same way here so i dont expect the other consoles version to run "good".

We really, really need the hard specs on this system. Get to work, top men.
