Good idea but fucking horrible execution. Wii U has a solid line up of 1st party titles, but jesus if you want any third party titles you should get a different console. Hell, if you've just bought the Wii U for the 1st party titles then you might as well just buy a Wii because all the 1st party games are the fucking same. Also, the controller is so awkward.

Arkham Asylum was straight up better on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

You should have got one, they're both cheaper than a Wii U. Asylum, City, whatever, the Wii U port isn't very nice looking and has some serious frame rate issues.

I liked it from what I experienced. Really all I did was play a couple levels of New Super Mario Bros. U at a store. I might ask for a Wii U for Christmas or my birthday since potentially great games are going to be released.

The console has some potential, but it seems like they're squandering their year long advantage, particularly with the 3rd party games that they promised are not showing up, and a few big-name developers have already bailed on the console. Not to mention that the controller is pretty wonky at best, which could potentially hamper the selection of games further.

Unless Nintendo can pull off something big between now and the end of the year, they will fall behind Sony easily and possibly Microsoft as well, because I'm sure that they can't rely on gimmicks and the demographics that they got with the Wii.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

I've only played it in a shop (New Super Mario Bros. U) and I thought it seemed alright as a game, the controller was awkward though. I had a quick mess around in the Wii U menus too and for some reason I couldn't select with the buttons, I had to use the touch screen. Not sure if that was by design or a faulty controller, but it was irritating.

Ultimately, I'm far from sold and will never buy it myself, even if they bring out a new Zelda game (not this Wind Waker HD crap).

besides the First party and second party games there's not really special on the Wii U that would blow my mind and capture like every aspect of my imagination.

Do you even have a Wii U, because there are almost no frame rate issues. In terms of game line-up, well yes, it is slim. The second half of the year looks good, and Pikmin 3 is only a week or so away.

People always have the mentality that the first year of every console ever has been amazing, and like to pass off newer consoles as terrible because they don't have 5 years worth of games to play on it.

Great first party line up
Besides that, nothing much. However, there are quite a few upcoming titles for it that look good.

And the controller isn't very good.

It's actually a fantastic system and really doesn't deserve the hate it's getting. It's not a failure. Wait a year after it's launch before claiming it is one.

There is a stylus, but it is admittedly faster to use your hands if the game requires two sticks/buttons. I find the only thing really wrong with the controller is where the plug for recharging with a cable is located, on top. The cradle charges from the bottom, but if you want to play while charging, you have to sit where the cable will be.

I personally think that the Wii U would be highly recommended for players who usually bring friends at home to play together considering that unlike the other consoles, you can play with a maximum of 5 players in the same game. Even though people says that the Wii U sucks, I have to agree a little because when the Wii U came out, barely any games were available and I'm still waiting for a few games to come out like the new Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World and a few other upcoming games. I also like the Miiverse since it allows you to communicate with the people you meet online, but I still hate the short character limit since the limit is only 100 which is bugging me. But I do like how you can switch from the TV screen to the Gamepad's, I have to say; this is quite useful if you're sitting in the living room with your Wii U and your parents want to watch the TV for a bit. Because of that, I consider the Wii U a Semi-Portable console since you can play on your Gamepad anywhere you want, but not too far away from the console. Let's just hope the Wii U a better future. =P

I haven't played it, nor am I interested in it. But apparently it's pretty good, Nintendo is awesome.

I always wonder if you people like you really donâEUTMt get it, or not want to get it. There are way too few third party titles.
One title isnâEUTMt going to solve that problem.

I think the Wii U is a amazing console with a lot of potential. In the right hands I think the games can also look stunning even without all the extra CPU/GPU power that other next-gen consoles will have.

But the fact is, IâEUTMm getting tired of first-party titles. I have love for Mario, but after just playing NSMB2, Mario Land and NSMB WiiU itâEUTMs kinda hard to really look forward to yet another Mario game where I have to run around in the same universe.

Sonic Lost Worlds currently holds the #1 spot on my wishlist (even surpassing games on other platforms). I really wish there were more third-party games like that for the system.

It's a slow burner. The first year has been very slow, as it was for the 3DS, but now there are a load of exclusives coming that will result in a surge in sales, and hopefully more 3rd party support.

I feel like it is aiming at a different audience to the Xbone and PS4, and that is why so many gamers slate it. It isn't attracting hardcore gamers, but still has a massive casual fanbase, that will continue to grow. It's real advantage is with a low price hardcore gamers may still purchase one as a 'second console' for the 1st party exclusives like smash bros, thus getting the best of both worlds. That worked great for the Wii, which lets not forget sold the most of the consoles in the last generation.

I don't have one, but it certainly isn't out of the question when some great games do start to come out. I'm a sucker for smash bros, and a good new Zelda title would be hard to resist. For now I'm content with my PC.

If it had more interesting titles like ZombieU and not just your generic Nintendo titles I would actually give it try. But as of now Zelda games aren't enough to win me over. I know it has Arkham City and Mass Effect 3, but I already got both and I don't want to buy a "next gen" console to re-buy games I already own.

Haven't gotten one yet but I'm planning to. I have heard Pikmin 3 has been boosting Wii U sales which is good. I'm mainly getting it for first party titles. But I know it will get third party titles as well so I'm looking forward to them as well, even though it may not be as much as the other consoles are getting.

The console's hardware is only slightly better than the Xbox 360/ps3, which both use hardware from what? 2004/2005? so the hardware for the console itself is beyond outdated, making a lot of devs steer away from it. The first party titles are just the same super mario bros shit apart from Pikmin 3. So currently, it's just a kids toy rather than an actual console. and based on how the Wii turned out I predict the Wii U will be the exact same.

The best selling console of the last generation, with a bunch of beloved first party titles, a smaller number of great third party games, and the only system that puts any emphasis on local multiplayer?

I'm interested in Bayonetta 2. If they make a Metroid game for it I'll probably buy one eventually, and if Nintendo buys Atlus I definitely will. The only thing that really pisses me off about the Wii U is that it's region locked. Fucking nintendo.
