  1. You know what. I’m getting Child of Light. I think it looks decent.

    Also, I’m tempted to get Remix 2. Hella a lot cheaper than buying a bunch of over-priced VC games, and the twists are fun.

    I’m also glad to see there will be a Demo for Mario Golf. Nintendo’s big chance to sway me. I’m thinking it kinda looks like Mario-Kart-Golf this time around…

    1. Getting Child of Light too. It looks gorgeous, sounds interesting and as a plus it will have a very attractive price. It is a Yes or Yes day one purchase on Wii U.

  2. Guys I’m thinking of selling my Wii u and get a steamboX

    Is it worth it,my wii u just sitting here gathering dust,i just use it to watch anime.

    Want to get rid of this shit, go next gen 100%



    1. Cool! Sell it.. then leave Nintendo related websites and never come back. You win, we win, The lucky guy that buys it from you win :)

    2. I’m a proud owner of a Wii U, PS4 and gaming PC, all paid for by a high school part time job.

      If financial situations prevent otherwise, I see nothing wrong with remaining or becoming multiplat.

    3. Valve Admiral GLaDOS

      You must be in really good shape and very intelligent since you plan to get a steambox and a PS4, even though the Steambox is virtually better in every way that you have no need for such a useless piece of hardware compared to a much more superior Wii U console.

    4. If your wiiu is collecting dust, you’re obviously using it wrong; wii u had way more appealing games than ps4 right now, and the recent sony aaa exclusive wasn’t all that. Don’t follow the ps4 hype, most of its games are also available on current gen.

  3. I’d at least wait until the end of 2014, we supposed to be getting some really good stuff this year. Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Beyonetta, X, and probably some other unannounced titles…

  4. i am upset most of the time with the wiiu because it is shit and is not a next generation console simple as that

    1. Of course it isn’t next gen. It’s current gen. As for being shit, that’s your own personal opinion. For me, it’s awesome and I can’t wait for more games.

      1. I mostly mean the lazy, stupid trolls. If you want to keep a troll as a pet, that’s you’re right! ;D

  5. A damn shame Ubisoft screwed us over with Watch_Dogs. No matter. I’ll just screw them right back by not buying Child of Light even though it looks like a beautiful game for the Wii U. I might change my mind & get it later when & if it drops in price on the eShop. As for the other games, I’ll need to check them out on the eShop to see if they interest me enough to buy them.

    1. Don’t be silly. Ubisoft knew watch dogs couldn’t compete against MK8 in May. At least we’re still getting the game.
      Buy child of light and support third parties that support wiiu!

      1. I hate to use this but don’t damage control for Ubisoft. They could have delayed all Watch_Dog versions, like they did Rayman Legends Wii U exclusive which was complete. They practically preferred to tell us we’re second class gamers, again, and delay just the Wii U version. Besides, they released Rayman Legends near Grand Theft Auto 5’s release date even though they knew that game would most likely hurt Rayman Legends’s sales. So don’t give me that shitty cop out of “but Mario Kart 8 would have lessened Watch_Dogs’s sales!” Enjoy Ubisoft while they abuse you then hug you later to make you forgive them. So enjoy being the beaten down girlfriend because he hugs & kisses you later on.

  6. Wow these game suck I will wait in till may when the good stuff is released moon chronicles megamanxtream grinsia shovel knight I will pass on these games
