I know it's weird and there's not much that I think I would want to play on it but I have started to desire a WiiU. They just seem like fun. Pikmin 3 could be fun, mario kart 8, virtual console games etc in bed. I know that will get superceeded by Ps4/vita remote play but there's still something about it. Price is too high though for an impulse buy so I am hitting eBay hard for a cheeky deal
I kinda want a WiiU(30 posts)
Played it.. got friends/family? it'll be great. For solo? Don't bother.
It's a fantastic console. Also great for solo stuff too, I feel the above dismissal is slightly dramatic.
It all really weighs in at how many exclusives it has that you like playing to price ratio. Good games include:
Wario Game And Watch
Lego City Undercover
Ninja Gaiden 3
Then stuff coming soonish:
Donkey Kong U
Mario 3D land 2
Smash Brothers U
Fire Emblem Crossover
Wii Party U
Wii Fit U
Sonic Winter Olympics
Mario Party U
That's about 20+ exclusives with a good few out by Xmas this year. I think this is a pretty good selection of multiplayer, single player, party games and most genres covered.
Also that doesn't include E Shop and Virtual console stuff, and Miiverse is a great online space, easily my favourite place to hang out compared to all 3 current consoles.
I think, if you can pick one up for £150 - £175 it's a complete bargain! :)
If ever I feel the wiiu itch I'll look at that list...
Kills the urge pretty quick.
You sir, have no soul! :D
^ I sold it to Kotick for 60fps shooters with GRAFIX'S!!!
"I know that will get superceeded by Ps4/vita remote play"
No it won't.
Waiting on price drop
them feels, i really want one aswel but im gunna stick to getting a 3ds this year, maybe a wii u next year and a ps4 or xbox one the year after
Its called morbid curiosity. And after you've played that first party game you wanted to play, you'll watch your Wii U sit there and gather dust in till the next first party game comes out. And you'll sit there and wonder to yourself, "Why did i do this?"
If your into Nintendo games like Monkey listed go for it, although if your expecting major third party support like GTA, MGS, Skyrim or Battlefield you will be upset.
If you have to make an either or type choice, WiiU is prolly not the best choice for most people. However if you are looking at it as a secondary purchase. A complementary console, then it is worth its weight in gold.
In addition to what MG said I would add Monster Hunter Ultimate 3. I also enjoy it for Blops, Madden, and more. Plus it does have Netflix/Amazon/Hulu without a Paywall(if that is something to consider).
If I could only pick one console own, I would prolly stick with what I had (PS3 or XB360). Or if I was only looking to buy one new system, PS4 would be my pick. However if I was lucky enough to be able to have multiple systems, I would own a WiiU asap.
I have and enjoy my Wii U and will get a PS4 to subsidize it with.
Just like the last two gens, Nintendo has the first party games you want, then you pick up a Sony/Microsoft system for third party games.
Am i the only that sees a problem with "picking up a Sony/Microsoft system for third party games."
Not the only one I bet, but that is how I feel tbh. I tend not to like many of the first party offerings from either MS or Sony.
It was especially true of the 360 late in the gen... What exclusives were there? Apart from endless sequels. Still, XBLA stuff was nice.
I used the 360 for third party games. Generally ran better than PS3 and I much preferred the pad.
PS3 / Wii (or Wii U) being for first party stuff, although I find Sony exclusives extremely over rated.
Next gen I'm doing the same. PC and maybe PS4 and my Wii U for exclusives.
@OlderGamer + Monkey
That was the context i was looking for.
Happily skips away :D
i kinda want one too (again)
Well, I won a premium wiiU with two pro controllers and zombieU. Just saw a video of wonderful 101 and it seems pretty fun, I may pickup pikmin 3 as well. If anyone wants to post their Nintendo ID then I will add you when it arrives.
Gratz madjock! Free is always the best price for any console. I am oldergamer on Nintendo.
Good choice! :)
My ID is monkeygourmet, feel free too add!
Had 4 people over last night and absolutly ragged the Wii U. Seriously good fun for multiplayer games.
Game and Wario
Tank Tank Tank (which is partly free too play btw)
Then had a marathon session of Super Ghouls N Ghost on the SNES virtual console.
Such a good console, I hope you have fun with it! )
My friends have it and they seem to enjoy it. To be honest, the lineup of titles so far seemed boring to me, but with the upcoming Wind Waker HD and Bayoneta 2?
so where´s the pricedrop?
how´s it working with those nintendo id´s now? are they connected to your console or not...i sold my wiiu, if i buy one again, can i reclaim my id that i created on the other console?
Absolutely nothing on the WiiU I want. If they'd release a new metroid game, or a brand new zelda game (preferably where half the game isn't tiresome travel minigame time sinks), or an actual real pokemon game, then chances are that I would get one.
I hate pikmin. :p
Pikmin should get kudos for being one of the only RTS's on a console that actually work and is fun too play.
That was something that Nintendo do particularly well. If they set their mind on doing a certain type of game, they usually nail it and don't give up on it till it feels 'just right'.
Also, I can't understand how anyone wouldn't like / want to play Pikmin 3?! :/
It looks amazing, both graphically / art design and playability?!
Added monkey and oldergamer on my newly deliver WiiU. Took a while to setup and transfer from old wii but seem to be fully operationalt now. My ID is themadjock..... game on
Have fun on Miiverse MJ!
Now you won't bee needing a ps4.
Given the changes to light bulbs, it's hardly amazing that so many of us toss up our arms. The old, inexpensive incandescent lights, once globally available at the markets, were removed from 2009 and lightweight neon lamps (CFLs) were commonly marketed to take their place. While these bulbs provided off much less warm and provided much greater energy-efficiency - durable up to six times longer - they had their disadvantages.
