Ah, I had completely forgotten that, once again lack of common sense, you don't touch it if it's downloading/installing an update.

I hate to bring this up, but I'm rather upset about all this: "Wii U is doomed and how PS4 and the next Xbox will finish it off". I mean c'mon, it looks like most people just don't have the extra money for the U, so with this logic, how will PS4 for example, destroy it?

The PS4 is suggested to cost at least 500$ or maybe even more, why do I not see any negativity for it, what has Nintendo done to deserve all the BS people are saying about them, they've always given a rather good system with decent price. Wii was't bad and I personally enjoy the Gamepad, I can play Ninja Gaiden or Nintendoland on my bed and be on my own little world while others are watching TV.

I'm hoping things to turn around once the PS4 and Xbox get released, they may be far more powerful, but if the price is high then I've got a feeling that Wii U will be the number one choice for those who are willing to come to the next gen.

Getting real tired of this shit.

Is it me or is the Wii U becoming a flop? Most blockbuster tittles wont be released for it and third party support is going quickly, also it can't run unreal engine 4 and sales are pretty crap right now. Western third parties are starting to stray away from it, not even treating it like a next gen console. I'm starting to think that Th-e was right about Nintendo going the way of Sega, unless one of their mascots brings out a game that isn't a remake this year, they might bite the dust by the end of the year.
(One day i'll figure out how to make my writing dark here) Hurry up and bring out a Mario Kart or 3-D game Nintendo, that will help you!

The system's doing pretty badly in sales at the moment, but it's not necessarily a flop. Especially since it's only been out for a couple months. It'll start picking up in sales once more games come out.

Lego Undercover has kept me busy for at least 30 hours now, and I'm only 3/4 done. Buy it if you want a good Wii U title that's just plain fun.

I seriously the doubt the Wii U will flop. It has a really cool interface, Miiverse is implemented much better than one would expect, and the it has a lot of cool games that are out for it, although few in number.

I feel come Autumn, the system will have an army of first party stuff to back it up.

I don't know, I mean I checked the article from a link Bobbybroccoli posted above, it did give you the impression that they could make it run for Wii U, Unreal 4 that is, but they also pointed that it already supports the U3.

I do feel bit upset about how many games got canceled so far, I've always been with Nintendo, PS1 made me cry, it was horrible IMO and I've never felt good with those damn horrible button layouts, I want challenging games with very simple controls, not the other way around.

I just don't get it how Ubisoft made the Rayman game a multiplatform, couldn't they have just released it, since it's 100% done for the Wii U already,? Once again, FUCK YOU M$ AND YOUR FUCKING CONTRACTS!
Well I've heard that they've got some shitty paper with a deal...

Been wondering, since there is barely anything announced to come this year, in the first half that is, could Nintendo have some strategy, struggle until PS4? Think about it, PS4 gets announced, Nintendo figures it will be expensive, people are asking WTF, and then look at the Wii U's library with bunch of epic games.

That's a theory I made in my little head.

Nah the only good Lego game is the star wars one, and that was mediocre. And that's what I mean, by autumn things might pick up, but if they don't, the PS4 might fuck up Nintendo.

You need a certain mindset. They aren't complex games, but they bring out the inner kid in everyone, and they usually have legitimately funny cutscenes and fun co-op.

This game may not have co-op, but it is the pinnacle of the series in my opinion, having played Star Wars 1 and 2, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter 1 and 2.

Plus, the open world city is really cool and very big, so you can't get bored in it. Always some little trinket to lure you in for 2 more hours of playing.

"Everyone knows that the Wii U hasnâEUTMt been doing well when it comes to sales. And thatâEUTMs largely due to a lack of high-profile games. But this trend might be changing now, as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate has hit the store shelves in Europe and North America.
The first sales data from UK game retailers reveals that the Wii U sales have increased 125% since the release of Monster Hunter 3.

This was great news.

People are saying how it won't matter because it's still not that much, but screw them, it's better than nothing and obviously shows to developers that once Wii U gets good game that everyone is looking forward to, it will sell and boost the U's sales.

Did you guys see the new Yoshi game in the newest Game Informer magazine? It is coming up for the Wii U and all of the environments and character models look like they are made out of yarn. Looks pretty awesome to me even though their isn't that much information out on it yet.

Kind of late dude, that was announced like two months ago along with and New Zelda game and Wind Waker HD. Just saying, but you should get a Wii U, you post one the thread a fair amount but you haven't got one, you probably would enjoy it.

Just a suggestion though, if you don't want to, that's cool.

Free Dev kits for 3rd parties?

If it's true, then that's awesome. More third parties will jump on the Wii U and we get more games, and the developers get free money. It's a win win situation!

I hope it's true, after that, it's just nothing but being an ass if there doesn't start to appear some surprising titles.

On another topic, couple months back when the freezing issue was still very common talk, someone said that turning Miiverse to allow English only would reduce the chance of freezing.

Well today I finally turned the option back to all languages, it felt smoother and I noticed how much more life there appeared to be on certain communities, than there was with "English only", yet most of the post were still written in English, interesting, feels like I would of taken a step to another dimension, full of germans, spanish and french.

My Wii U freezes every now and then. I hope the spring update reduces this or gets rid of it all together.

Mine freezes when there is clearly something that screws over my internet while using Miiverse or the browser, it's weird, but could the software just be so unstable?

I'm sure the next updates will fix it, if not, well the problem clearly requires more attention.

Yeah, it's really annoying when you are in the middle of an intense battle with like twenty soldier in Assassins creed 3 then it freezes.

I'm just hoping newegg offers a pre-order sale like a few months ago. I have it pre-ordered at 47.99 on the 360 already but would gladly transfer my pre-order over to the Wii U version if they let me.

The modern ones aren't as good, but they are good, the original three are the best, Pandora Tommorow is my favorite.

I heard that when you pre order in the states you get a mini statue of Sam. I'll probably get it for the Wii U or 360 as well, it depends which gets more players, I don't want to be waiting online for an hour to find a match like in Assassins Creed 3.

Assassins creed is because of ubisoft botching online with that version of the game. There are plenty of people you just can't get into a match with any of them because of their faulty matchmaking. Of course now that you bring up the issue I remembered this game is made by Ubisoft so now I wonder if I should back off a Wii U version since they may botch the online in another game if I am not careful.

I'm starting to have thoughts of keeping the 360 version pre-order in now since ubisoft is sure to not screw up THAT version of the game while the Wii U version could be easily as screwed up as Assassins creed 3 was.

Because this is Splinter Cell, and the series has had a tough couple of years, I'm doing what i always do when I'm skeptical about a game. I wait a few days or a week to see how fans like is and if it is good, then if it's good, I buy it. Now donw't get me wrong I LOVE Splinter cell (most of my favorite series are on my sig) but I will admit, it's become too action based compared to the original three. On the bright side, spies versus mercs is back, and that was the shit on Pandora Tommorow and Chaos Theory!

Well I do want this game. And if I cancel my pre-order I would have to wait for a price drop for it to match the 47.99 price I pre-ordered at. I'm sure I am mostly going to play the single player anyway since that's what I always liked about splinter cell but I am sure I will give the online a good look in this game and that's the only thing scaring me off the Wii U version just because of what happened with Assassins creed 3. I want my game to be complete and not have any part of it be broken. I just think maybe the Wii U version is at a higher risk of having a broken online after the issue with AC3.

I have faith in Ubisoft, what I'm more concerned about is Rayman Legends and it's online and story, if it's not good, the developer of that game will have my copy of the game up his ass! (I don't fuck around when it comes to Rayman, It's my favorite series of all time) Anyway, they probably have learnt from that mistake and will make the online good, maybe they'll eventually release a patch for it like they did with Zombi U. By the way, what's your name, I'll add you and we can play ac3, if you have it and if it works. Mine is Snoopertrooper3.
