    1. I’ll be picking it up also!! :) If it’s good, it will raise the bar for the 4-million dollar Mighty #9

  1. Okay. This week looks better than the last and WTF is the GBA, N64 and GC games? Did the GBA release stream just stopped? lol

    Also, Blacklist for $20? Sounds decent but I’m not supporting those fuckers at Ubishit anymore. I’ll just wait for the preowned at the same price so they won’t get my money.

    1. Your attitude is the very reason they sent going to bring M rated games to the system. They say they don’t sell, so your answer is, you want buy it….good going

    2. Sorry dude, but Blacklist had an amazing campaign mode. It looks amazing, plays great and I got a shit-ton more playtime out of it than any CoD I ever played. (not counting the hours and hours of time I waste on Zombie Mode. :)

      But I hear ya. I feel the same about how Nintendo has been acting up until recently.

      1. I said I’m thinking about it when the pre owned copy is priced similarly because I’m not supporting those jackasses until their get their shit straight and cut the crap and start making real games ON TIME.

    3. Why do you care about the company that made the game so much? I bought Assassin’s Creed 3 $20 no problem. I don’t like EA, but I bought NFSMW for the full $60. If you enjoy those type of games, then you should buy them. I don’t see what the problem is. As that guy up above just said, you are proving Ubisoft right when they say their mature games don’t sell on Wii U. You like the game but refuse to buy it which is only making the problem worse.

      1. Its not that their mature games “don’t sell”. We don’t buy anything gimped or intentionally delayed. That’s it. These fuckers don’t get it so we won’t pay a single cent until they cut the crap and start taking Nintendo more seriously.

          1. I’m talking about how they’re treating Nintendo fans like second hand smoke. Now they’ve become an after thought to them and after all we have done for them, this is their “thanks” for our long term support for nothing but a fuck you. So, we’re not gonna take their BS anymore. They can keep making casual garbage all they want. They’re stupidly wasting their time and money.

  2. Stranga, your high command lied to you just as the serpent lied to the women. N64 games wont be around till at least after Zelda comes out and even there will only be 7-9 games that will come out till the end of the will u life cycle. Sure GC games will never come out in light of them doing certain HD releases of GC hits but 3 or 4 of those at best. Nintendo will continue to kill dreams like Robin Williams kills comedians

  3. Just the free Mario Kart 8 Dlc for me this week, Nintendo doesn’t really have that great of sales on the eshop for any of there or 3rd party games on sales. I will stick to Amazon for Nintendo games. Also just a few days ago on the Psn Flash sale I could have purchased Resident Evil Revelations for only $9.99 instead of Nintendo’s so called sale price of $19.99 really why should I even bother with a digital download of it, when the disc version is only $24 on amazon? Plus I am already out of space on my Wii U console don’t really know what nintendo was thinking when they came out with only a 8gb and 32gb console and expect us to actually download all of our games from the eshop.
