Mother of God, somebody help me! I'm stuck between getting monster hunter 3 ultimate and Bioshock infinite! Why do good games have to come out so close to each other?!

I did see some guy on Miiverse saying how he is forced to buy a DLC because he got busted, sounds complete BS to me, but if it's true, then, WTF?

Still for some reason there is something inside my head telling me, that I won't end up liking it, been right too many times before and ended up being disappointed, so I'm not going to get it any time soon at least, still, I'll keep it on my "list".

Indeed. I've still only had the game freeze on me once and I have played a lot more since my little write up on it. That issue appears to be not as major as I have heard it was unless I am just lucky.

That guy on Miiverse must have been going crazy or something. DLC is on the disc already as a part of the original purchase price. I got busted by cops several times and nothing bad came of it. Don't you think this game would be getting a bad reputation if you had to buy DLC when getting busted by cops? That would be stupidity on a whole new level.

If you enjoy racing titles at all I think you will like this game. I really enjoyed burnout paradise and I came into this game thinking it wouldn't be as good but I actually feel like I am enjoying this more than I did with Paradise a couple years ago. If you aren't going to get it right away definitely keep it on your list it is a game worth having if you are into racing games at all.

Right now I'm quite desperate to find a good news site about gaming in general, places like eurogamer and wiiudaily makes me want to smash pari of lemons into my eyes, both seem very biased, the other one is full of negativity for Nintendo, the other one is full of.... well fuck, they just make me sick.

Any recommendations?

Try Gamesradar. They are quite fair to every console, and they give plenty of coverage of every thing you would possibly want to know about. Also, they have a really funny team of writers. I started reading about 3 years ago, and although their staff has been rearranged, they still have the best articles I can find on the internet.

For Nintendo only, try Gamexplain. Their main site has all consoles, but the guy who runs their youtube channel (as well as their site) has pretty much all Nintendo coverage in the form of analyses, discussions, and lots of preview content.

May have been a troll or just simply one of those who act before they think, I'd find it amusing if you really had to pay real money for it, would be a bitch slap to all those people who always complain how they want their games to be as realistic as possible.

But for everyone else, it would of been completely retarded.

Looking good, thank you, checked some comments and didn't see any 8 years old kids talking about, CPU's GPCPU fkahkrwjfbjhrfklnzdn,fmna, bullshit, I find it amusing, they talk about stuff they obviously know nothing about, just names and what they're supposed to do.

Those people had their consoles bricked because many were impatient during their system updates and cut the power feeding the console, as it was installing and was halfway done, which is clearly a very retarded move.

Aside from that I had my share of freezing issues while playing certain games that got solved without any major problems but since I installed the latest system update released a couple of weeks ago I haven't encountered any more of these freezes.

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!

Where do you get your information from? lol

I'm pretty sure that Epic games said UE4 could run just fine on the Wii U but they themselves personally weren't going to support it, it was up to their clients. That means that anyone who bought a license could make a Wii U game with it if they wanted. Also sales have been slowly increasing in several countries thanks to MH3U and LCU. As for third party support it's too early to tell, I mean, the console was launched 4-5 months ago. The PS3 and 360 launch was pretty shit too and then they gradually got better. All this doom crap is pretty retarded honestly.

Anyway I got mine just for 1st party and all the Nintendo exclusives that tend to be a lot better than Sony's and Microsoft's.

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.

From a few days ago:

"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. Over the past weeks, UK retailers have been battling Nintendo and slashing Wii U prices left and right. Nintendo eventually met with the retailers and laid out their plans for the Wii U over the next months.
And itâEUTMs not just the UK where Wii U sales saw a significant increase. Nintendo France confirmed that Wii U sales have tripled since the release of Monster Hunter 3 in the country.
Hopefully this is the start of the turnaround for Wii U sales. There are plenty of upcoming games that can easily cause a sales spike of the console. Games like Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 are just around the corner."

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.

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.

Something I saw in IGN today and thought I should share

"Wii U sales up 250% worldwide
Wii U sales:

January: 57,000
February: 59,000
March: 146,000 (vgchartz)

The official numbers are always higher than the Vgchartz numbers so expect something between 146,00 and 170,000 units sold.

And by the way Lego city Undercover is the 4th best selling game in Europe last week : 90.000 worldwide in less than a week, it was released on the 28th in Europe"

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.

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.
