Wii and Wii U
  • Think you might be right on the zombie/resi thing. As for HD Wind Waker, i cant imagine anyone not loving that though perhaps it's best suited to the 3ds? (pithy thought: Fez belongs on 3ds!)

    Imagine the shit Phil Fish would make you do with the stylus. Probably writing in Hebrew or sommat.
  • Pikmin 3 is the first party launch game.  It's probably reason enough for me to buy the U at launch.
    HD WindWaker would be a good idea, if they bothered finishing the game this time around.

    Trying to obtain a copy of Pikmin 2 Wii that isn't from fucking Australia is making me cry tears of blood.

  • Is Pikmin really the game to lead the charge? It could be a masterstroke of fluid, intuative interaction or a gorgeous but fiddly reheat. You need something to get folk's hearts' racing on launch day...not fucking darksider 2 tho.

  • I never played Pikmin and don't really understand what it is. It's some kind of RTS isn't it?

    If it's proper 1st party ninty then I guess it'll be the one to go for.

    And I think I smell Fzero.  If not at launch, then at least shown at E3.

    Saw a used copy with an unused points card, rashly bought it straight away. Let's hope this one turns out OK. My copy of Pikmin 1 Wii was £5 used from the GAME fire sale, as new with an unused points card, so let's hope it's a good omen...

  • Why would you want to play Pikmin again? Surely Nintendo treating it as a system seller is a bit like Reggie's claim a few years back that the Wii's hardcore game that year would be Animal Crossing?

    Problem I see is that Nintendo are pushing the fact that it's as powerful as the 360 and Ps3 just as we get ready to launch to a new generation of more powerful hardware. This would've been fine 4/5 years ago but NOW? It needs to be MORE powerful than the current gen in order to compete.

    Disagree completely. Look at 3DS and PSVita. Which is selling like hot cakes and which is tanking? Look at DS versus PSP. Look at the number of Wiis sold compared to PS3 and 360. As far as I know, it's still outsold them both. Look at what happened when Nintendo tried to compete on power, they ended up with the GameCube (which I love, but it didn't exactly set the world on fire).

    Games consoles aren't about power, they're about accessibility. The Wii came out when very few people had HD TVs. Now more people do, it makes more sense to include 1080i/p output. When it was released, the Wii was far cheaper than the 360, and a fraction of the price of the PS3. Don't forget how important that is. The average man in the street doesn't give a shit (or in a lot of cases, even understand) which console has the most cores, the most RAM, etc. They want the one that they can afford that works with the TV they have.
    Also Elm made a very valid point about Aliens and (I hope he doesn't mind me paraphrasing this on here) the whole tension thing between having your pulse rifle in two hands and having to lower it to bring up the motion tracker in one hand, rendering you vunerable to attack would be totally lost by being able to have it constantly at hand.  Plus... Fuck Nintendo

    Also disagree. It's the perfect antidote to a tension-breaking HUD with an always visible tracker in one corner, whilst still maintaining that sense of vulnerability. "Shit, I can hear a pulse. Now I have to look away from the TV and down at my tracker to work out where it's coming from."

    Plus, it's the motion tracker. From Aliens. In your hands. How is this not purest awesome?

    Does anybody know if there is a way to unlock all characters and tracks on Mario kart wii quickly or with cheat codes? Checked google quickly but can't see anything.
    @n0face

    It's definitely possible. I have my Wii games installed to a hdd and use usb-loader GX/configurable usb-loader to run games, they have built-in system where you can download game-genie cheats and apply them before you launch. I had a look once and there were cheats to unlock all tracks etc. in Mario Kart.

    There are probably other ways to apply them but if you can soft mod and install one of these loaders i'd highly recommend it.
  • I'd actually love to play lylat wars on the Wii U. I can imagine them making good use of the controller - targeting, or map view for battles, formations/squad control. Would want a new lylat wars though, not a reboot.

    I think Zelda's probably going to make the most ingenious use of it though, and combined with standard inventory/spell management that'll make it a joy to play.

    I never got a 360 or PS3 so I wouldn't actually mind getting those games, updated a bit. I imagine it'll be the same for a lot of Wii owners. Last I checked the graphics point to a 360 1.5. I think that's no bad thing, but whether current 360 or PS3 owners will bother with it, especially when it's not going to be as cheap as the Wii I reckon, I dunno. I think the clear physical difference/new way to play should win over current Wii owners though. So it might not sell as well as the Wii. For me though, seems like a great bit of kit. Ninty games with decent power to back them up, proper third party support, lots of easy ports that'll hopefully be done well, and a new way to play that has some promise.

  • I've decided against getting this at launch, which will be the first time since the SNES that I haven't had a Nintendo home console from day one. I will get one eventually, but I want a good catalogue of games before I jump on board.

    Any possibility of the launch line-up changing your mind if it turns out to be surprisingly super-duper (or if the hardware is surprisingly cheap)?
    "ERE's like Mr. Muscle, he loves the things he hates"
  • It's possible. Unlikely, but possible. It will be the next home console I buy, it's just a question of when.

    Same here. Day one console purchases are over for me. I bought the Wii at launch, but before that it was the Xbox. I'm looking forward to the console (and its inevitably superb exclusives), but I'm only just about ready to consider buying a 3DS.
    You have minecraft?
  • I refuse to buy a 3DS until they sort out the second analogue stick debacle.
  • +1 for a 3DS Lite. When's one coming out anyway? Until then it's the DS Lite and more advance wars

    I'd quite like a 3DS XL. I think the DSi XL might be my favourite portable console ever.
