Still putting out crap Wheel of Fortune and Jeporday games?? Awesome
Wow that's a lot of games! Rayman Legends is the one I'm most interested in, but Marvel Avengers, Epic Mickey, and Super Mario are all ones I would consider getting as well.
Never have I seen such an impressive line up of games for a launch of a console!
Although I personally can't stand the CoD games, having Black Ops 2 is going to be very nice for Wii-U. At least some people are going to get it when they pick up the console (provided it releases in Nov like on other consoles) just to play it with their friends who do the same.
If I do manage to pick up the console within the launch window, I'm sure I'll get AC3 for it, ZombiU, maybe Epic Mickey 2, and certainly the Nintendo first party titles. Maybe even Darksiders 2 since I don't have it yet.
Great launch window !
TVII, Bayonetta 2 and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate HD stole the show really.
DAY 1 !!!!
"Warriors Orochi 3: Hyper"
What! Yes! Now I don't feel guilty about not picking up Warriors Orochi 3 when it came out. I am so picking it up for the WiiU *adds to list of "Games I want for systems I don't have."
wiiu doesn't sound like a serious console. I mean it still sounds like a child toy.
This is a really great launch list! If only I could get eveything on my list of games to buy for the Wii U...
What are YOU going to buy a WiiU console in order to play?
My list of reasons to buy a WiiU:
2. Lego City: Undercover
3. Aliens Colonial Marines
4. Bayonetta 2
5. ... maybe Assassins Creed 3-- it depends on if there is an edge to playing it on WiiU.
WAIT! I don't have enough money for all of this!
ugh, they're tempting me. they really are. i don't want the WiiU, but.....THE GAMES!!!! So many good ones like Pikmin 3, Monster Hunter, Rayman......maybe i'll wait to see the Smash Bros, then decide then.
Which ones are launch titles??
Tank! Tank! Tank! Hilarious.
I don't think I'm gonna get it at launch but I'll consider buying one. Mostly because of ZombieU and Aliens Colonial Marines
can't wait for funky barn!
