    Someones saving all their good shit for E3 to try and Cock Block MS & Sony….

    Or they better be! :)

    This is one thing I hate about gaming now, waiting endless months for things to come out, announcements, delays, re-announcements, count down teasers etc…

    I can see my life force ebbing away while I wait for some titles! :/

    Little way off but some of definite interest on WiiU for me …

    Retail:
    Rayman Legends – February 28th
    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate – TBA March
    LEGO City: Undercover – TBA 2013

    eShop:
    Toki Tori 2 – December 20th
    Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien – TBA Q1 2013
    The Cave – TBA Q1 2013

    Still to pick up ZombiU and maybe ACIII too.

    Hmmm… That’s a bit of a lean WiiU release schedule.

    I was hoping for more original titles on the digital store.

    MH3 might be the tipping point for me, but Ninty really need to get some momentum going before E3.

    Devil Survivor is still not out here?

    Fucking hell I hate that they region locked the 3DS. Horrible.

    @5 Yeah. I think post new year will mark the start of Wii U’s third-party potential. Launch is always followed by a little burst of support, but will the big names stick around for the long-game?

    Not sure, but it’ll be interesting to see.

    @5
    Agree the eShop in particular is a bit sparse. That’s where I expect the majority of the non-Nintendo developed gems to appear eventually. It’s not like I’ve not got enough to play elsewhere mind :)
