        1. I hate COD with the bottom of my heart . But its going to be full 1080p on wiiu and you can use two screens for coop .

          The wiiu version is clearly a LOT better than the 360 and ps3 version .
          Can the pc version run 2 screens asymetrically ??? NOPE !!! the wiiu verion is superior in every way . You can even use the legendary wii pointer controlls !!!

          1. You most likely haven’t even played it yet. This is just like when others say WiiU will suck and you guys say they have no way of knowing that yet. Saying the WiiU version is better before you’ve even played it is just as bad. I’m not saying it won’t be better, because for one thing I haven’t played it yet either.

Hahaha funny how you say “Nintendo Fanboys” are the worst when most “Xbox/Playstation Fanboys” constantly down Nintendo all the time without giving it them a single chance, and anyway all “Fanboys” suck in general. Plus you barely ever see “Nintendo Fanboys” go on Xbox/Playstation sites and consantly talk about how bad their systems graphics suck, how badly their controls suck, and how bad their 3rd party games are. There are only about 3-5 serious “Nintendo Only” gamers on this site, the rest are usually just making fun of how they act, and talk, etc. Oh yeah and I never see any of the “Nintendo Only” gamers talk about how they are “hardcore gamers” and how others are only “casual”. Oh and I remember you as Alison lol, for some unknown reason I only see you on here when Aeolus is on here, Coincidence I think not.

None of my friends are really that into Nintendo games, the only person I know who’s buying it, is buying it only for Smash Bros, I can perfectly understand why Cynphira would rather get it for those consoles.

              1. Most core gamers with a Wii also own a PS3, PC or Xbox, meaning that they may have already played 1 or 2. Mass Effect 3 is a relatively new game, and is for people who have not played 3 yet on other consoles. I have already played 3, but the Wii U version is better than the other versions.

                  I personally have not played that series, and I know plenty others who haven’t. So unless you can fish up some statistics that prove most core gamers on the HD twins have played the Mass Effect series, this is total conjecture, especially the quality of the Wii U port in comparison with the others.

                    The Wii U version is for people who have played through 1 and/or 2 but not 3 yet, are planning on getting a Wii u and want the best experience of the game.

        1. Fact: the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3 will be better than the version in the collection.

          I agree, the 3DS version of MGS3 was very inferior to the MGSHD Collection, but that is because of better controls and graphics on the collection. But here, the Wii U version ME3 is better in just about every single way to the collection version, there is no getting around it.

            1. From the information we have gotten about the gamepad compatibility, and the fact that it is coming out for a more powerful system, it is very safe to assume that it is the better version.

    Like

    1. Very strong ? Sure, if you call a line up that mostly consists of ports and shitty games “strong”, then it is strong indeed.
      And why would any core gamer buy a new system if they can play all the ports on systems they already own ? Yea, because there’s no reason and thus they won’t buy it.
      The only ones who will buy the WiiU at launch will be the category of those Nintendo fans who buy basically anything that says “Nintendo” on it.

      1. “Shitty” games? Yeah, Zombi-U, Pikmin 3, P-100, etc. are shitty games? Besides, most of the ports are either enhanced or have more content or run better and they’re still good games. Oh and I love how you’re saying that only Nintendo fanboys are going to buy it but, then again, what did I expect from Aeolus’s boyfriend.

        Like

        1. First of all, I said it MOSTLY consists of ports and shitty games. The word “mostly” is referring to a fraction that is bigger than 50%. But, it is not referring to 100%, because 100% is not “the most” of something, it’s “all”. Means, I was not talking about every single game in the list.
          Secondly, the little bit of not-so-signifant content is not worth 500$. I highly doubt that anyone with common sense will buy the WiiU just to be able to play those ports with an unsignifant amount of extra content.
          Thirdly, Pikmin 3 and P-100 aren’t even on the list.
          Fourthly, ZombiU is shitty. And ugly.
          And last but not least, I am a female. So, due to biological reasons, I can’t even be Aelous’ boyfriend. Just because two people are in the possession of common sense and agree with each other it doesn’t mean they’re in a relationship.

          1. Ouch, looks like someone is upset. I guess, you’re Aeolus’s lover. Besides, you said it’s filled with mostly shitty games and ports, which is not the case. Besides, no one spends $500 or above on a console unless you’re a Sony drone who actually went out to get a PS3 at launch.

            Again, if ports and multi-plats don’t count as good games, you’ve effectively removed 90% of the PS3/360’s gaming library.

            1. I’m pretty sure she meant $50 titles. Wii U games are seemingly going to retail higher than that, so it’s an even worse scenario for the shovelware on it.

              The Wii U has virtually nothing going for it for people who already own a HD console, that is the point being made here. In no shape or form is it worth a purchase until they start showing some next-gen games that aren’t looking like PSN/XBL titles. ZombiU could very easily end up being the next Red Steel, but were woefully overhyped and time will only tell when ZombiU likely isn’t going to be as good as previews suggested.

              Like

              1. Seeing as Zombi-U is getting good impressions while Red Steel didn’t, doubt it. Also, of course the Wii-U is going to have $60, wtf did you expect and, besides, EVERY system has shovelware and the best selling system has the most. Oh and what Wii-U game looks like a PSN/XBLA title, I’d love to know…besides the occasional bad launch title. Oh and, btw, the PS3/360 are sub-HD systems and the Wii-U is getting superior multi-plats so there are definitely reasons to getting a Wii-U, especially since it has exclusives on top of it, you know, the reason for getting a console in the first place.

            2. How can you tell by a comment that I’m upset ? As far as I know, simply typed words are not able to express any feelings.
              And no, I’m not.
              And yes, it indeed is the case.
              And yes, you’d be spending at least 500$ for the WiiU plus the games and ports that would be worth buying if they wouldn’t happen to be out on other systems already, despite the fact that the WiiU itself is about 350$ and the games are 60$. So, the WiiU plus 3 games makes more than 500$ already.
              And I never said ports are bad games. I was trying to say that nobody is going to buy a new system at launch if a big part of the launch line-up consists of ports because there aren’t many people who would spend so much money on a system that offers mostly the same games as a system they already own.
              And uh, you don’t seem to know much about gaming. If you would, you would know that both the PS3 and Xbox360 definitely offer more things than ports. In fact, they offer a bigger variety of IPs than the Wii, which offers, when it comes down to IPs, only rehashes of the same IPs that have been around for 30 years. Well, actually every Nintendo system does that…
              Oh, and they offer 3rd-party titles. A lot of 3rd-party titkes. But you probably never heard of them, the Wii didn’t really offer many of them after all.

              Like

              1. So no one should’ve brought a 360 or a PS3 at launch with their mediocre launch titles

                No should buy a 360 over a PS3, seeing as it doesn’t have the same amount of exclusives as the PS3 and more or less lives off of multi-plats

                It’s common knowledge that the vast majority of games on the PS3/360 are multi-plats, especially in the 360’s case

                Nintendo doesn’t rehash old IP’s, using the same characters isn’t rehashing, unless you’re trying to tell me that SMB plays like SMG and that LoZ plays like LoZ: SS and, if you are, then you just proved how biased you are against Nintendo

                I own more than a Wii but keep on assuming I only play on one system, it’s cute to see someone argue like Aeolus, a certified Sony dick-sucker

                Like

                1. Launch titles of the PS3 and Xbox360 were entirely new games, no ports that existed before the systems actually launched, if I’m not mistaken.
                  And about the Multi-plats… Multi-plats = 3rd-party titles = 3rd-party support.
                  So, of course it’s worth buying consoles that offer a big library of 3rd-party titles. I don’t even see why you’re trying to bring them up as a negative aspect.
                  And Nintendo does rehash old IPs. Of course, it’s not only rehashing, saying that was my mistake, I’m not sure why I said that. It definitely wasn’t on purpose. But, they are relying on the same IPs over and over again, instead of creating new ones to offer their fans something different. And I’m definitely not biased against Nintendo. In fact, I’ve been their fan for many years. Doesn’t mean I can’t express criticism.
                  You call me a Sony dick-sucker, yet you are kissing Nintendo’s ass to an indescribable extend. But well, hypocrisy isn’t anything new in this community.
                  And I don’t assume you own a Wii only. Actually, I didn’t really say anything about what I think you own.

                  1. Yet the 360 had plenty of ports for it’s launch and, like the PS3, didn’t exactly have many great games at launch. Most of them were ok or good at best. There wasn’t a killer app there buddy.

                    My point was that you’re saying that no one would buy a system that has multi-plats and ports, yet that’s what the 360 is almost entirely reliant on, with few exclusives such as Halo and Gears of War.

                    Using the same IP doesn’t = rehashing. Using the same characters doesn’t mean it’s the same game over and over again. Unless you’re trying to tell me that changing the characters would all of a sudden make the game a lot different.

                    If kissing Nintendo’s ass means defending them, then cool.

                    1. Please tell me where I said that having multi-platforms is bad. Ports =/= multi-platforms.
                      I think there’s a big difference between a game that launches for multiple systems at the same time and a game that launches for certain systems first and then on another system a few months later.
                      And please tell me how Super Mario Bros. isn’t basically always the same, how Mario Party 1-8 isn’t basically the same just with different minigames + playboards and a few new features per game, how Mario Tennis isn’t basically always the same, how Mario Kart isn’t basically always the same just with different tracks and a few power-ups, how Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 weren’t basically the same just with different stages. I could go on but I guess you should be getting the point by now.
                      And I already said that it was a mistake of mine saying that all the IPs are only being rehashed.
                      Changing the characters, in-game items and level-design aren’t the only ways to create new and different games.
                      And if you see “being blind to Nintendo’s mistakes” as “defending” then you sure are defending them.

As for Mario Kart, if you didn’t notice changes in how the game is played from SMK, MK64, MKDD, and MKW, then there’s something wrong with you. As for SMG 1-2, you’re right, hencewhy I only own SMG.

                      Oh and, you’re trying to bring up supposed mistakes, so I’m defending that.

      2. “And why would any core gamer buy a new system if they can play all the ports on systems they already own ?”

        Welcome. To. PCs.
        There was no reason to buy a 360, which was and still is a watered-down PC, at launch (halo fans lapped it up though). Even LESS of a reason to buy a PS3 at launch (everyone had a PS2 and people only bought it because it had “Sony” on it, even though it was fucking $600 and had like 1 good game at launch). And the only conceivable reason to buy a Wii at launch was because it was “the wave of the future” at the time.

        The WiiU is a NEW console that costs $300 and has exclusives that people care about. It’s in no way a system for brand-loyalty. It’s going to have a better launch than last gen and many consoles before it, and that’s a fact.

        1. I think comparing PCs to gaming consoles is something entirely different than comparing a console to another console.
          And yes, there were reasons to buy both the Xbox360 and the Playstation 3 at launch. They were new and offered things that haven’t ever been offered before them. Their online systems, for instance. Or the hardware. No other video game system ever had such technologically advanced hardware at that time. Though, the first games didn’t really show much of it.
          For people who do not own a PS3 or/and a Xbox360, the launch line-up may be considered as good indeed. But for those who do own at least one of them, it is not that outstanding. Because of the reasons above; It offers many games that can be bought on those other systems already.
          And I still do think that at launch it will be up to brand-loyalty.
          But yea, as well as I do not really agree with the points you did make, you are not forced to agree with me neither.

            WHY? How? In WHAT conceivable way?? They are all -gaming platforms-. The only difference is that there is NO brand loyalty to owning a PC. Not a single one of you kiddies on this site who argue DAILY about who’s toy is better has built a gaming PC that they maintain. I guarantee it. This is what’s wrong with you console-only “gamers” who think having the most powerful CONSOLE to play multiplats on is in any way relevant. PC is better in every single imaginable way, consoles are only for exclusives.

            “They were new and offered things that haven’t ever been offered before them. Their online systems, for instance. Or the hardware. No other video game system ever had such technologically advanced hardware at that time.”

            MAYBE FOR CONSOLES! You know what the 360 offered? Online -WITH ADS- that you have to -PAY FOR-. You know what the PS3 and Wii offered? Shit online. Online gaming is NOTHING new. There is nothing relevant you can do with a console that you can’t do with a PC. There is NO SINGLE REASON to play a multiplat game on a console. NONE. At the same time, there are TONS of reasons to play those games on PC instead (MODS, better online, better graphics).

            “For people who do not own a PS3 or/and a Xbox360, the launch line-up may be considered as good indeed. But for those who do own at least one of them, it is not that outstanding. Because of the reasons above; It offers many games that can be bought on those other systems already.”

            $600 fucking dollars for this. Don’t even TRY to defend this while at the same time saying this:
            “The only ones who will buy the WiiU at launch will be the category of those Nintendo fans who buy basically anything that says “Nintendo” on it.”

            You’re fucking JOKING. You’re DELUDED. It’s disgusting how hypocritical you are. The WiiU is -HALF- the price with an -objectively- better line-up. If you’re saying those things were worth getting at launch, there is NO WAY IN HELL the WiiU wouldn’t be.

            Fuck your “opinions”, they’re not consistent enough for me to care about your “well, that’s just your opinion, man” bullshit. Get the fuck out of here with that garbage. You and that areola dipshit are clearly biased and it could not be more obvious to someone who doesn’t give two shits about brand-loyalty.

            1. Comparing a console to a PC is different because of the reason you have given yourself. PCs are better in any possible way, it doesn’t make sense to compare a PC to a console because it’s a different dimension.
              And there apparently are reasons to buy/play multi-platform games on consoles. They sell well, as you can see. And they wouldn’t be called multi-plat if there was no reason to buy them, because if there was no reason, they would not exist on consoles. And that would make the games exclusive to PC. So, with that logic, gaming consoles probably wouldn’t even exist.
              And I like how you think you can simply tell that I am a console-only “gamer” just by reading like 5 comments of mine.
              And no, you are wrong. I do have a self-built gaming PC.
              I didn’t buy a PS3 at launch nor did I buy a Xbox360. So I can’t tell how the online was at the beginning. But I can tell that the PS3 has been offering great online for a few years now. I don’t really see anything shitty about it. And if I’m not mistaken, online gaming in that way on gaming consoles was new indeed, correct me if I’m wrong. But I definitely did not say online gaming in general was something new.
              You’re complaining about the 600$ people paid for it. If you look a little higher on there, you’ll see that there were people who actually paid 2000$ for it. I never said Nintendo has the only fan-base with a category of people who buy anything that says the name of the company on. As we can see, other fan-bases do have it as well. But, I referred to the Nintendo fan-base here because I was talking about the WiiU, which is Nintendo’s product, obviously.
              And to be honest, I don’t see why I’m hypocritical neither. The whole time I’ve been saying that the launch line-up mostly consists of ports and shitty games. And because I used the word “mostly” I was obviously not referring to every game on the list. And I said it’s not that much of a great line-up for people who do own a PS3 or a Xbox360, because, as we all should be knowing already, I said that it contains games that are available already, games that are not new. I do not see anything hypocritical about it. And just because I am critizing Nintendo’s WiiU and “defend” other systems doesn’t mean I hate Nintendo, nor does it mean I like the other companies more. It simply means that I don’t find the WiiU as perfect as many here are trying to make it look like. I’ll stick with my opinion.
              But yea, you can call me what the hell you ever want to call me, but there’s no way I’m going out of here. And even if I were to get out of here, I’d definitely not do it because some random person tells me to.

                Is this serious statement? They. Are. Both. Gaming. Systems. Get that through your head. If they can play the -same games-, there is no reason not to compare them. It’s in NO WAY an unfair comparison to make. You can have both in your home and use them for gaming. There is no reason you’d have to CHOOSE between them.

                I like how you disputed my claim and didn’t provide a single example. As if that’s going to convince anyone. Name some reasons. Go ahead, provide me with some incentive to play Boarderlands 2 on my console as opposed to my Please enlighten me.
                Your logic is INCREDIBLY flawed. The only reason they sell is because people are too lazy/dumb to build gaming PCs. Companies make games to make MONEY, not provide the user with the best possible experience. They’re a business and they do what’s profitable. Don’t be dumb, this is the real world.

                “And I like how you think you can simply tell that I am a console-only “gamer” just by reading like 5 comments of mine.

                Online capability. Being able to play your games with others through an internet connection. It’s worse on consoles when compared to PC. Also, nothing new. The SERVICE that is PSN or LIVE I could give less of a shit about, Steam is way better. That sort of service is nothing to brag about.

                “You’re complaining about the 600$ people paid for it. If you look a little higher on there, you’ll see that there were people who actually paid 2000$ for it.

                Congrats. That doesn’t contradict anything I said though. You’re still acting demeaning towards others for being excited for an -objectively- better launch than what they’re used to. Which is fucking obnoxious and sickening. Especially on a site filled with -most likely- a majority of younger people.

                “And to be honest, I don’t see why I’m hypocritical neither. The whole time I’ve been saying that the launch line-up mostly consists of ports and shitty games.

                And this whole time I’ve been saying that new consoles mean nothing someone who has a gaming PC (AKA, a smart consumer). This is nothing new. This is not something new with the WiiU. I, as someone who has been gaming primarily on PC for almost a decade, find the WiiU’s launch line-up to be in every way better than any system last gen and MOST other consoles before that. If you don’t? Ok, sure, whatever. Great! Don’t call others who are interested the equivalent of “drones” or some shit, as they have EVERY RIGHT to be excited in comparison to other console launches. Especially when you’re clearly showing bias that I guarantee is evident to most people who hold no ties to consoles. It’s obvious, like it or not. Not hating a company with every fiber of your being doesn’t make you less bias (looking at you, aeorgoalegrlelrg or whatever your name is).

                “But yea, you can call me what the hell you ever want to call me, but there’s no way I’m going out of here. And even if I were to get out of here, I’d definitely not do it because some random person tells me to.”

  6. I’m getting AC 3 and Darksider 2 at launch. I was also going to get Mass Effect 3 and ZombieU later on since I didn’t get the chance to play ME3 earlier this year, and the Wii U has DLC from earlier. Since it’s not there, I’m going to get ZombiU and wait for ME3. After I’m done with those, I’ll get Ninja Gaiden 3, Tekken, and Black Ops is looking kind of interesting too. We’ll see. I’ll also get some downloable games.

    I wasn’t going to get NG3 since the game was met with a lot of criticism, but the Wii U version is adding a lot of stuff not in the earlier version, so I got interested again. I have the money ready to be spent, but I’ll only get 3 games at launch because AC3 and DS2 alone will take a while to beat.

It’s coming to the 360, PS3, and PC. Yeas, even the PS3 is getting ME 1. I guess I’ll get it for the PC then since my PS 3 is broken. Way to go, EA, way to go.

  14. 1 – I never played any Assassin Creed before… because I never played on any other console than Nintendo systyems before. Pre-ordered it.

    2 – I never played Mass Effect 1-2-3 for the same reason. Pre-ordered it.

    3 – I Have pre-ordered CoD Black ops 2 because of Activision … and Activision made GoldenEye on the Wii .. and Wiimote-Nunchuck control is the best for FPS. I’m sure it will be the same for CoD BO2.

    4 – I pre-ordered Batman AC Armored edition for the same reason from 1 and 2.

    5 – I pre-ordered New Super Mario Bros U because… i’ts New Super Mario Bros U .. you buy it and shut up.

    6 – I pre-ordered Ninja Gaiden 3. Because Team Ninja + Nintendo = win. This version will be a lot bether for sure.

    7 – I pre-ordered Zombie-U too. Its an exclusive and from what I saw from all the video review.. this game will not be another Red Steel.

    8 – And I took the black Wii-U .. because of Nintendoland. Perfect game to show my friends how the Wii-U gamepad works. All my friends bought a Wii after I let them try it 6 years ago. The same thing will hapen in two months.
