The Wii U Launch Lineup Isn't Bad

"Coming out of Nintendo’s E3 conference, many people were disappointed by the lack of surprises and the supposed lack of good launch games. It seems to be a divisive issue, with some gamers excited for the Wii U games while others remain severely underwhelmed. I personally remain cautiously optimistic about the Wii U. While I agree that the Wii U launch lineup is missing that surprising, must-buy first-party title everyone was expecting Retro to make, the launch games are still quite strong.

Historically, consoles have launched with either few games, bad games, or both. Compared to the PS3 and 360’s launch games, the Wii U is looking pretty good. The question is, is it enough to make the Wii U successful with both the hardcore and casual audiences when it’s launching during the twilight of the current console generation?"

How does Pikmin 3, 3rd party hardcore titles and Mario count as terrible?

If money would be credit for trolling....he is holding a big bag of it.

Don't feed the troll.

Megaton2100d ago

Agreed, that does look pretty terrible, PopRocks.

AO1JMM2100d ago

Because he is obviously one of those "HARDCORE" gamers?

The Wii U launch lineup is pretty good in my opinion and I will most likely get a Wii U on launch day as well.

@ Fanboys
I agree with PopRock you saying how Pikmin and mario terrible ? so 2 games are considered good line-up? what if someone don't like those spesific two game? get AC,Batman-Darksiders you say? why get them on WIiU if i can get them on my PS or Xbox i already own? why get a port ? The only good game there is ZombieU.So yeha the line-up is terrible.

The Wii U launch lineup isn't bad for Nintendo fans. I don't see any games that would make people go rush out and buy the Wii U day one outside of Nintendo fans.

Hisiru2100d ago (Edited 2100d ago )

PS3 only had Resistance in America and Ridge Racer in Japan and that's it, so why is people saying bad things about the WiiU's line up? The WiiU's launch line up has at least 10 good games (and I want 7 games). Why is it terrible?

-Pikmin 3
-New Super Mario Bros. U
-Darksiders 2
-Assassin's Creed 3
-Rayman Legends
-Trine 2
-Tekken Tag Tournament 2
-Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition (for people who never played the game or want a complete -edition)
-Mass Effect 3
-Ninja Gaiden 3 (improved version)
-Project P-100
-Fifa (already confirmed)
-Black Ops 2 (almost confirmed)

Also, some third parties already confirmed they have more games to announce (EA is probably going to announce more WiiU games at gamescom, they said they will talk about it at the end of summer, so it's probably gamescom).

u took the words out of my head lol.. hopefully it gets better real soon

live2play2100d ago

even nintendoland looks really fun
seriously read some hands on previews

because nintendoland was shown at the end when people expected a big bang of a reveal it made the HATE the game

and its gonna be packed in so cant complain

cant wait to see what games are based off of yoshi, pikmin and mario

DivineAssault 2100d ago

It will get better with time.. Launches are always a bit disappointing.. After a year in & theres still nothing great, then u should start to worry.. Nintendo will keep itself alive through 1st party games even if the worst case scenario happens

Sgt_Slaughter2100d ago

Compared to the Gamecube, Xbox 360 and PS3, this is a great line up!

bothebo2100d ago

Yeah however, this is 2012 and the 360 and PS3 already have a massive catalog of games. You also don't need to pay upwards of $300 to play them.

PopRocks3592100d ago

Wii U is not a current generation console.

bothebo2099d ago

@ PopRocks How have they proven that?

Sgt_Slaughter2099d ago

@bothebo are you ****ing kidding me? Have you seen the graphics on some of the games? Assassin's Creed III and New SMBU to be exact, and I'm pretty sure I miss a lot of games that look amazing.

omarzy2099d ago

@ bothebo. it is not a current gen console because it comes after the wii. Has the gaming definition of "generation" made you forget about the real definition of what a next generation is?

It really is a good launch lineup. I remember the ps3/360/ps2/gc, everything lineup. 5 games, with no known franchises. This is a solid choice of games available for a console launch.
