THQ Wii U Games Get Listed By The ESRB

The Entertainment Software Ratings Board has listed two THQ games for Wii U. Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune have both been given ratings by the ratings board. You may remember that both of these titles appeared on a leaked internal retail listing a few weeks back.

    1. You know you love me, I know you care
      Just shout whenever, and I’ll be there
      You are my love, you are my heart
      And we will never, ever, ever be apart

      Are we an item? Girl, quit playin’
      “We’re just friends,” what are you sayin’?
      Said “there’s another,” and looked right in my eyes
      My first love broke my heart for the first time

      And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      Baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      For you, I would have done whatever
      And I just can’t believe we’re here together
      And I wanna play it cool, but I’m losin’ you
      I’ll buy you anything, I’ll buy you any ring

      And I’m in pieces, baby fix me
      And just shake me ’til you wake me from this bad dream
      I’m goin’ down, down, down, down
      And I just can’t believe my first love won’t be around

      And I’m like baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      [ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/justin-bieber-lyrics/baby-lyrics.html ]
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      Baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      When I was 13, I had my first love
      There was nobody that compared to my baby
      And nobody came between us who could ever come above
      She had me going crazy, oh I was starstruck
      She woke me up daily, don’t need no Starbucks

      She made my heart pound
      I skip a beat when I see her in the street
      And at school on the playground
      But I really wanna see her on a weekend
      She know she got me dazin’ ’cause she was so amazin’
      And now my heart is breakin’ but I just keep on sayin’

      Baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      Baby, baby, baby, oh
      Like baby, baby, baby, no
      Like baby, baby, baby, oh
      I thought you’d always be mine, mine

      I’m all gone
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      Now I’m all gone
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      Now I’m all gone
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
      Now I’m all gone, gone, gone, gone
      I’m gone

        Now we crossed the line

  1. casual shovelware.

    suppose the wiiu will need a bit of that.

    the launch line up and upcoming games for wiiu are amazing tho. if the wiiu can replicate the same quality amount of games as what the 3ds is doing . i will be very very happy.
    for a year and a half there is already tons of awesome high quality games on 3ds. and there is some children’s shovelware but a tiny unnoticeable amount. which is great.
    wiiu – take the 3ds’s example and do better .

      2. Eh, that doesn’t really count. It was more the Kinect Sensors (hardware) that sold that much which came with a free copy of Kinect Adventures. People weren’t lining up to buy Kinect Adventures itself.

        The true highest selling game on the 360 is CoD… (at this time I believe it’s still Black Ops with Modern Warfare 3 just slightly behind) unfortunately.

      3. You do know that game show games are also available on the 360, PS3, and even Steam (Not sure why Steam allows those games, while declining some indie games, but whatever.). Shovelware was bound to show up, Activision, THQ, and Ubisoft LOVE shovelware, just look up how many shovelware titles they’ve published on almost all the platforms available, it wasn’t the Wii only, it was just more obvious due to the lack of big 3rd party releases.

      4. The only reason Rockstar and other third party publishers haven’t released their games on the Wii is graphical power and that’s no longer a problem. The only thing PS4 and the next Xbox will have over the Wii U is slightly better textures.

      5. Rockstar says what Take 2 makes them say, and guess who makes a LOOOT of shovelware, yep, Take 2, with such amazing games like Baseball Blast! and Birthday Party Bash. So they basically fucked a girl, and then accused her of being a slut, that doesn’t higher their credibility as much as you’d want.

      1. Exactly. I don’t respond directly to obvious trolls on this site anyway, not worth it.

        I play games on everything: PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Vita, 3DS, Wii, iOS and Droid, I plan on getting a Wii U, and whatever comes in the future.

        I play games from JRPGs, platformers, RPGs, MMOs, FPS, TPS, ARPGS, point and click, RTS, action, adventure, racing, sports, music, etc. Ratings E-M. If the game is good, I’ll play it. Even sometimes when the game isn’t good, I’ll play it.

        As long as I enjoy playing the game, that’s all that matters to me. A real gamer doesn’t let a single system, company, or group of people dictate what they play, we play what we enjoy, no matter what it is.

        I am by no means a ‘casual’ gamer. But hey, haters gonna hate, trolls gonna troll, fanboys gonna be fanboys.

  5. Last time THQ had released Wheel of Fortune for the original Wii, it was actually a fun game. Although it had Mii characters including Mii Pat and Mii Vanna, the gameplay was simple and easy to use… just like the TV show. Now that America’s Game is coming to the Wii U (alongside Jeopardy!), I’m sure the fun gameplay (especially when using the Game Pad), will continue. Whether the developers use Mii characters or not, it’s all up to them. Graphics doesn’t matter when it comes to playing fun games no matter what age you are right now.

      6. Yup, that’s why it’s so sad, the 2 biggest gaming countries are America and Japan, I’d like to include Europe as a whole, but Europe isn’t a country, and sales figure say otherwise, as much as I’d like Sony to be the ones with big sales, if it isn’t Nintendo, Microsoft has the most sales, which is a complete mystery to me. I guess patriotism isn’t so good as it’s meant to be.

      9. Sure, I use their products, but only their software as it stands. I just can’t get behind paying for online, while other offer it for free (Could be because the others are Japan based companies.). And I also don’t see any reason to buy it for it’s exclusives, unless you are a HUMONGOUS shooter fan. Sure, Halo is great and all, but it’s a another FPS, inovational FPS or not, it still is another FPS in era where FPS is mechanics are in every game. And Gears of War, don’t get me wrong I enjoyed it more than Halo, is still the same game all over again, and not just in a stereotypical game all over again, like people are saying about Pokemon games, it generally only offers a new storyline, and that’s about it with major changes. At least they aren’t shoveling the games out every year. I’m also on a fence about their quality and pricing. That’s about all I can think of for now, do you get why I dislike them now?

        I dont see nintendo changing any time soon, like I said almost everyone see’s them as the family gaming machine. If anything its PC that is getting more popular with Steam and the fact that computers are a lot cheaper then 10 years ago. I would never PC game though, mouse and keyboard = no thanks.

        its bullshit. the wii is awesome. if you are a ‘hardcore gamer’ . you should own a wii a 360 and a ps3. like me.
        the wii has some childrens games , shovel ware and family party games, yes . this is a fact.
        ok moving on , the wii ALSO has a lot of ‘hardcore games’ . skyward sword , xenoblade , muramasa , the conduit , red steel 1 and 2 , monster hunter tri , the last story , metroid prime trilogy , capcom vs tatsunoko , mario galaxy 1 and 2 , donkey kong country returns ETC ETC ETC.
        these arent ‘shovelware or kids games’ . these are stellar games that are just as good if not better than most ps3 and 360 games. why is that so hard to understand for sony fanboys ???
        yes the wii and the wiiu will be good for casual gamers. ie children , family’s women etc etc.

        but the wiiu will ALSO be good for hardcore gamers to.
        soloution = buy a wiiu and a ps4 .

      1. Shovel ware will rake in more of a profit then a game such as metro (if it doesn’t to well) lower production cost, way less advertising etc. Like I said, they have already given us ds2 and the new home front rumored plus with their mass studio closures and financial status I think you can at least let it slide from these guys. If it were from Activision or EA then yes, complain away and I will join in. But at the moment, for a company that is in this deep hole, I don’t think they are comfortable to sink a lot of money into a lot of their major titles on a new system that at the moment has install base of 0.
