    1. thanks god was waiting for a chess game! just hope for online and i’ll bite day 1. considering it’s 10-15$

      1. In the video clip on the Nintendo website it says “challenge your friends online” although the description mentions nothing about online which I find odd as this would be a very important selling point IMO.

  1. This seems more of an iOS gaming staple, but it’s nice to have these things on dedicated gaming platforms as well.

  2. When will that game Nintendo showed at 2011 E3 where two players play checkers on the gamepad then you shake it to start over?

  3. Or the one with the bird where rhe gamepad records and send it to the TV to play it? Where those just concepts or something?

    1. From the trailer of the wii u it seemed like those games were meant to come with it. Guess they thought the Wii u didnt need any extra games huehuehue

      1. Those games at 2011 E3 would have made great lauxh games for Wii U and would have allowed people to better understand the difference between Wii and Wii U. Those are features Vita can’t do. And will this chess game for Wii U allow two players sharing the gamepad? Those are exclusive functions the Vita can’t do. And what about the game where the Wiimote and Gamepad work together like playing golf where the golf ball is located on the Gamepad on the floor. You swing the Wiimote like a club the ball leaves out the Gamepad and onto the TV. Vita can’t do that. Or what about tossing darts from the Gamepad and goes fromthe gamepad to the TV. The vita can’t do that.

      2. And don’t forget about the baseball game shown at 2011 E3. Player one is batting and player two is using the Game pas to catch. The ball leaves the TV and if player one strikes the ball will then appear on the GamePad.

      3. Where is that game. Fuck Wii sports. I want that game its completely a different way to play and if advertised right and launched right Wii U sales could have been wayyyy better. And when will we see some AAA Wii U tittles that actually could be done similar to this like Mario baseball or golf or even super strikers? And what about that Ray man Legends trailer showing off NFC technology? When will these GamePad exclusives be available on Wii U consoles?

      4. And what about the function of the mic in the Gamepad? There is so much potential in the Gamepad never used I forgot it could do all that besides just a cloned TV screen. It can send messages and receive from the TV to the TV making it feel like an object actually left your hand and went to the TV. It can also reverse it. Also when will we see the Gamepad held in both hands and showing images that can’t be seen on the television?

      5. The GamePad does have a lot of potential. Unfortunately, Nintendo doesn’t have any innovative or unique ideas that make use of the potenial. It is becoming more and more evident the GamePad was created to try and cash-in on the tablet craze.

  4. So the GamePad is more than a cloned TV screen its just Nintendo has not released a game that did this. Also Wii U can handle two gamepads. So how will that be. Better yet will the design be different or the same? Also I didn’t know Wii U had two CPUs. An Dual core for the operating system only. I want to know where Wii Us potential really is.

    1. man, the gamepad is as much of a fail as the cranky kong reveal.

      the quicker you find that out the faster you will accept that nintendo failed with wii u. as if the wii wasn’t a fail enough, people buying it to store n there closet. the wii was a bigger fail than the wii u is. it was not even a gaming machine, it was a toy.

      1. do i really need to give you fucking reasons of why wii u failes?? i do that all the time and fags like you will just cry and damage control it. there is no point of me repeating it every time.

      2. Don’t even bother trying to explain the failures of Wii U to a Nintendo fanboy. They’ll never agree with you even if back up your arguements with facts and evidence. Denialism is the Nintendo fanboy’s favorite behavior.

      3. also snowman, to whatever the out trolled thing down there. yeah i remember when i showed you that i just dont go a nintendo website to hate,i have interest, its just that nintendo is bogus right now and has been that way for a while, so im not just going to blindly follow a corporation like an idiot when there is stuff to address or is crap.

        so i showed you my youtube on that video about how blackbond was being stupid to me and being blind from fanboy hate when i was agreeing that nintendo failed with wii u. then you were clamoring me for fucking months for so called out trolling blackbond and how i owned him or some shit, its still there i wonder if you will magically change your mind. its like get off my dick, and now you are just a whiney bitch, i have never changed never. you just dont care because im not one of those stupid nintendrones like you might have thought. ive been the same here, never chsanged and always got hated. so its ok to be a troll if its against someone that isnt a nintendo fanboy but its wrong when you so called troll a retarded nintensheep or any other fanboy??? im just saying my opinion anyway, cant anybody say anything how they see it with out somebody like you being a baby.yeah fuck off you stupid hypocrite. you would just worship me if i hated the shit out of blackbond or someone like that. your just a nintensheep.

        im not even going to check my grammar because i dont give a shit how fast i wrote that or want to take anymore time on this

      4. Oh, did I make you mad? To the point of calling me a hypocrite, a whiny little bitch, a nintensheep, and you think I was praising you for out trolling Blackb0nd? You mistake respect for praise sir…and it was for a week. Reason why is because you then saw the truth. Not like you do today and that’s for sure…the fact that you calling me a fanboy just proves you got nothing. You have no sense anymore, I bet I can out troll you 5 times now then I could back then…the fact of it is when I do, you just disappear for a few days.

        I told you once and I’ll tell you again…I am a true gamer I play all whenever I can but Nintendo is my home console and I will defend it regardless. (even if I have no respect for iwata anymore or reggie, even if I see nothing to see worth my time).

        I bet your gonna say “blind nintensheep”, “corporate fanboy”, etc etc. all because I won’t say anything bad about it…right?

        Then you and every other stupid mother fucker claiming they hate Nintendo, “kiddie”, “baby games” when the real truth is that your hiding the fact that you can’t stay away from Nintendo, IF YOU TRULY HATE IT, THEN DON’T COME BACK…simple as that. You won’t deal with arguing, you won’t deal with anyone. ADMIT IT ZEAMA, your love for it had no bounds…IF YOU DUMBS FUCK TROLLS CLAIM YOU HATE IT SOOOOO MUCH, THEN WHY THE FUCK YOU EVEN HERE???

        RESPECT BITCH, know your place, because if what you keep claiming is true, EVERYONE will know! Now back down fool, Know who you are or stay the fuck out…that foes for adarazz too.

      5. oh yeah and whats up bitches was me you idiot. that just prooves my point even further, i changed my name and didnt change anything what i always do and your like yeah that seems like the old zeama….. uhhhh. ive even said that was me in the paragraph. just shows that fanboy hate is fanboy hate.

      6. “well said, now that seems like the old zeama in whats up bitches, maybe you can take notes zeama.”

        that was me and you didnt know, then i told you were a hypocrite blind hater and that just prooved it.

        “Oh then maybe I should take it back…dumb fuck…”

        hypocrite fanboy prooved to be 10000% true. you cant even hide it now, its right here in the open for everyone to see.

      7. Guess you never heard of sarcasm…that’s why I called you a dumb fuck…here’s a tip, before calling an anti troll a hypocrite fanboy, maybe you should look at your own faults…I just out trolled you 4 times now…keep it up zeama, Your making my words seem true, specially me doing it 5 times. Oh and by the way, yeah, you sure is making yourself looking like a fool…in three ways.

        1. reading and replying back…

        2. trying to make yourself look good by trying to make me seem foolhardy with my own sarcasm and me out trolling you every time.

        3. Actually coming back, replying to a thread that’s already dead to most…and thinking your winning…I’m actually laughing at you now…

      8. WiiU hasn’t failed… yet. There is still hope for Nintendo to turn this around.

      9. I buy WiiU for first party games and PS3 (PS4 soon) for all the other games. So for me at least, WiiU wasn’t a fail.

      10. no not really i knew for a while. im just saying you are a bitch. im betting your also macrony 64.

      11. i wasn’t hiding it dude, and if i am a bitch, i don’t know what you are, and you will lose that bet by the way

      12. so are you telling me your that piece of shit macrony 64, the guy that has a million alts, different accounts, says im every person on this site and likes little girls?? make up your mind and stop embarrassing yourself. this has to be the 5th time. i should have known it was you when you were pink floyd, you being a bitch and all every time you make a new account. im wondering what your next account will be because you will probably have to hide again, like alway…..

      13. wow, you really can’t think shit do you?, if you bet that im macrony 64, and i tell you that you would lost that bet, what does it mean?, c’mon i know you can figure it out, i know you can

      14. sorry for my english, as you can see in my profile i’m from mexico, so it is not that good, and no, i’m not none of these guys or that guy

      15. your macrony 64, you act just like him have that same bad english, everything. you were pink floyd and were a huge bitch, just like you were when you were voice of reason. you become like my ultimate bitch hater after you leave each time. before ninenlord then macrony 64, now that we all know your this…. you might just leave again and make a new account out of embarrassment….. so much for me being ben sanders and walter white and everything you keep on clamming me to be, when your fucking who knows. hypocrite nintendo fanboy at its best.

      16. you wish you were Walter White, that guy at least wrote decently, and not, im not tthose/that guy, just accept there are multiple people who don’t stand you

      17. how do you even know who walter white is!!!!! if your not macrony 64 then how do you know who that walter white guy is and how he wrights if he hasnt done anything in months!!! pink floyd was created after you left from getting bothered by people saying your a child molester. you just told me you were pink floyd. your pink floyd alt was only here since last month. if you were not macrony 64 i highly dought you would know how walter white wrote and what he did!!!!! you are horrible at covering this stuff up, go make another alt, we all know. when you come back you can become my ultimate hater bitch just like when you were voice of reason.

      18. mmmm, you know you can visit a page, without commenting right? i’ve been in this site since the Wii U got announced, waiting for news and leaks and shit, a since then i’ve been saw you, and all the other trolls, walter white, neutron, aeolus, you are just throwing shit, and no, Pink Floyd since last month?,bitch please, ask Anubis since i when i’ve been commenting on thi site, just give up, and accept it, multiple people, hate your guts

      19. yeah….. anybody could be an anonymous. shit i could name myself whats up bitch right now. im not surprised if you were macrony 64 you were pink floyd, which also reminds me of that pathetic guy. there was no point to even change your name. not even i changed my name, so nobody would know who i am.

        you have a lot of similarities, a lot. also if people hates my guts, you guys would be doing me a huge favor for feeding me every 5 seconds. the trolls will never go away here. i dont even look at myself as a troll though because thats not my main purpose in coming here anyway, its for the news, then i will say whatever the hell i want about nintendo, its my opinion. come attack me you pathetic plastic humpers, nintendo has gone to shit with how they run thing, and im not going to just say oh ok dddeerrr and say everything is awesome and worship them like a retarded nintenpuppet. yes i know almost everybody hates me here and i find it hilarious how attached you guys have to be to a peice of plastic to hate me so much!!!!!! you dont even know who i am, nor do i even know you!!!! its sad to hate someone that much you havnt even seen before and thats why its funny to me!!!!!

      20. so you admit that the wii was a toy. people bought it and threw it in the closet, just like a old filthy toy. unlike 360 and ps3 that people actually played for more than a shitty fad (wii sports) and had actual games on it. the only difference between the wii and wii u, is that wii u is a failed toy. maybe they shouldnt of failed with it and thought of actually making a gaming machine and not another fad,

      21. No shit the Wii was a toy, do you really think Nintendo said: “hey lets make a GAME console with characters like Pokémon, Pikmin, Kirby and other animated cartoon characters for business men? are you reall that stupid or did you have to take a class to be that moronic?

    1. you of all people are going to buy…… THIS!!!!! it should of been free just like that wario game, im pretty sure they were both supposed to come for free in the package, just with less content.
      that just shows how desperate nintendo is for games……. there is no way im going to get this or that fail of a warioware game.

      also…… what did you think of that cranky kong reveal. hahahhah.

      1. im not trying to start an argument. im just wondering what the guy thinks of it.

      2. Again Nintendo thinking their reveals are amazing. Idk why they needed to hide the info about Cranky as a playable character.

      3. I’m going to get it to learn how to play chess. That’s the main reason. I never had anyone to teach me to play and this looks like a fun tutorial and the best way for me to grasp the rules of the game. Once again this may depend on the price. This, in my opinion, should not be anything more than $5. Moving on to VGX, honestly I wasn’t even surprised. I had a buddy come over and we watched about half of it and got tired of it. The whole thing sucked really. What Nintendo’s presence revealed to me was they really do not understand the consumer at all. I was already convinced at Best Buy, when they had their E3 expo, that I was going to buy Tropical Freeze and that it was a great game. They no longer have to try and convince me to buy the game. If they had nothing new to show then Reggie should have sat his ass home and saved the Cranky reveal for a Nintendo Direct. All that VGX showing did was piss off fans. It would have been better to not have ever been there.

  5. I can’t wait for this one. I have it on my PSVita and PS3 and I love it. Can’t wait to put it on my WiiU. It’ll be a blast with the gamepad.

    1. Not really. Alba is just too much of an asshole to post what I sent in about Emily Rogers confirming via twitter that the update to 3DS coming after the maintenance is a Miiverse/NNID/balanced eshop update. But the asshole only wants to post negative news and never the positive news I send in. Smh….

  6. No online play on chess. because its nintendo HAAAAAAAA. play chess with your grandma on gamepad together :)
