That's not a good example. Hardcore gamers have lost faith in the Sonic franchise and a large proportion of Wii U owners at this point are hardcore gamers. Hardcore gamers are also more likely to hear about review scores, and when Lost World was derided by critics, most people probably gave up on it. I know I did. By comparison, I'm quite confident that Bayonetta will get good review scores. It helped push the attach rate of Super Mario 3D World as high as it is.


Well technically it has a higher meta than the other games in the series I posted....

And if you are using the hardcore gamer angle how do you explain this very casual/kids focused title

Should have used Wii Party U instead.

But that was massively bundled, and is an internaly Nintendo developed game that includes their major IPs. That wouldn't have been fair.

The Wonderful 101 was an incredibly weird game, received average reviews, and wasn't actually hyped that much.


http://www.metacritic.com/game/wii-u/the-wonderful-101

I disagree.


70-79 = Good/Average.

A lot of people thought it looked cool but others didn't know what to make of it. It's basically a Japanese-style superhero game with character models that look like action figures. I remember when is was revealed as Project P-100 at E3 2012 and people weren'really that interested. Even though it had been a year, people were still talking FAR more about the Zelda Tech Demo.


#1 Look at the userscore.  It's above that.  #2 It's a 78, in the "good" range.  #3 It has 75 critic reviews.  That's a LOT.  #4 it has more than the normal amount of user scores (234).  

I would say it would be really hard to find a similarly selling game with as many critic and user reviews (as well as the score being quite decent).



Voted 4 Watch Dogs. Bayonetta2 will sell badly, for sure, but this is expected result and can not be called 'bomb'.



Around the Network

I'm hoping The Crew will bomb it just doesn't look that interesting to me. Wii Fit U is the biggest bomb of the year so far I know its also available digital but I doubt it sold a lot more that way its one of the worst selling sequels of all time.



Looking at the votes, it looks like people were picking the games they want to see fail, I love these polls just for the laugh. And I am not saying which one I voted for.



Infamous second son. People act like this game is a big system seller and the mainstream cares. It's not and they don't. 



it is really easy.. WiiU will be a total flop.. oh wait, it is already a flop :) But seriouslly.. I think other..



The more I read the "console flamewars", the more i love my dreamcast :D

every 3rd party game on wii u, Bayonetta 2 being the biggest flop U_U


Bayonetta 2 will NOT flop harder than third-party games. Many NIntendo fans will buy it simply becuase it's an exclusive.


wonderful 101 would like to argue with that.
