Err... your comments are increasingly confusing. XD

As far as the launch lineup posted, it looks very solid actually, but the key word is "launch WINDOW," meaning some of those games could be coming out months after launch. Still pretty good regardless I guess, especially when you compare it to the Gamecube launch. Wii launch was strong in sheer numbers, but not so much in quality. At least the Wii U launch games, it is a pretty safe bet that many of those games will be of quality.

I already plan on picking up Pikmin 3, NSMB Wii U (looks to be a true sequel to NSMB Wii), Assassin's Creed 3, and Rayman Legends. I also may pick up ZombiU for the same reason I got Red Steel 2 - because it seems to make use of the controller better than most other games for the console. I somehow doubt all the aforementioned games will make it day one though.

 And all you people crying about not getting all the big games, just stop. They were NEVER going to get all those, if you thought so then go see your doctor and up your medication, cause you have gone crazy.

Why's that, oniyide?

Alot of these games people have been clamoring for have been in development for years, probably long before they got any Wii U dev kits, maybe some of them didnt even get any dev kits, hell maybe some just straight didnt even want to mess with the Wii U (crytek) my point is it was completly unrealistic to expect every single HD game to go to Wii U. Be happy with what you're getting which isnt really bad

OH MY GOD, that's exactly the problem!! These are the leaders of the industry, they dished consoles to more homes than the other two, and with the WiiU design they also did everything to make sure 3rd parties were happy. And now, with all that, we still get zilch on multiplats? Where was BOII?? We know it will release on time with the others, but why didn't they say so?? This is not just some random 3rd party game, it's a record breaking, massive game selling series!

COME ON oniyide, now you're just heaping on insult to injury. Nobody's insane here, you just don't get it.


it doesnt matter how much more they sold, if a company feel that their isnt a market for it or the market isnt as big as the lesser selling ones for a particular game, then they wont mess with it. Crying about not gonna change a thing most people will ( and have) will find a way to play that particular game and if that means getting another console so be it.  Not getting multiplats?? Are you blind I see AC3, ME3, Tekken might come, Aliens, Darksiders etc. I dont know where BO2 was, probably on Vita. If you know the game is coming for sure, what difference will it make if they show it or not. It would just be footage you've seen already. Hell they didnt even show the Vita version. Hell maybe they didnt mention Wii u version cause ther is NONE.

You've let me down I thought you were one of the sane ones among the Ninty crowd. Calm down a bit, itll be aight.

You forgot to post the Wii U Ambulance image too. You're falling behind on your quota.

It doesn't work if used too often. I promise it's the last one (but I had to do it, this is so snipingly inefficient)

The tablet gaming + TV gaming at the same time is a bad idea, because you need to watch the tv and the tablet in order to interact in an efficient way with the game; and would be a pain in the a$$ to look to the tablet, and then look to the TV, the tablet, TV, tablet-TV-tablet-TV-tablet-TV-tablet-TV-tablet-TV-tablet-TV over and over again in order to avoid getting killed while watching the other screen.

I bet this will be a major complain when the console releases. I bet most people will play only with the tablet, because that is the only way you can play without having to watch 2 screens at the same time.

WiiU = FAIL


Under that logic, the DS would have flopped.

The DS/3DS screens are actually very close.  It is a big screen that is foldable.   You can see both screens without moving your eyes and head, making a simultaneos view for both screens (or at least you can the other screen with yout peripherical view)

The problem with the WiiU is that you will be looking front (TV), down (Tablet) over and over again, so that you dont gent killed in a game; and that will be a major problem.  Because like in Zombi U you will be bussy checking the inventory, and while doing so you will be eaten by a zombie. RE LOL

WiiU = FAIL

I'm a little upset by the Wii U's graphic capabilities and the lack of compelling first party content, so I can understand complaints about that.   This complaint I don't get though.  Right now I am writing this post with my cell phone on my lap while watching tv in bed.  I do this all the time.  I also use my Nook Color and watch tv.  I can do both at the same time becuase I have basic human multi tasking abilities, the same ones that most people develope at around 5 years of age, and becuase both screens are easily with in my field of vision.  I can not fathom how someone can not do this.  In addition to this, most of my gaming sessions are played this way, either laying in down in bed with the controller in my field of vision or with my feet up while sitting on the couch with the controller in my field of vision.  I also played games on the gamecube using the gameboy advance to navigate menus.  It was super easy.  If you have the mental acumen to figure out how to use a controller, I doubt it will be a problem.
