CVG- ZombiU: Is this the hardcore title Wii U is aiming for?

CVG- A popular train of thought among gaming's chattering classes is that Nintendo has to recapture the so-called "hardcore" with the Wii U.

Fail to do so, they say, and Nintendo's new console is doomed, destined to be a Dreamcast for the HD generation. Or worse.

To recapture the hardcore gamer, the argument continues, Wii U must offer so-called hardcore games. Perhaps mindful of this rather spurious notion, Nintendo are currently promoting ZombiU as the standard-bearer for Wii U's more mature content.

it looks to be a decent start, hopefully more new appealing exclusive games come out down the road and of course ZeldaWiiU

Puddlejumper752176d ago

It already has more than either the PS3 or 360 had at launch so I am not sure what you expect.

Of course its not going to launch with 20 exclusive games.No console ever has.

It's the Wii all over again. People dont mind looking like completely clueless morons as long as they can find a reason to hate on something they have no interest in.

I can understand people being skeptical of the Wii U, especially after E3, but in all honesty I don't see what's there to hate about it. The launch window has quite a few games covering quite a few different genres. Fighting, strategy, racing, action/adventure, shooting, etc.

Or perhaps they just hated the Wii and that hatred translated over. Who knows.

People are always crying about how much people hate the Wii U and calling people names. People have hated systems for worse then they have the Wii U and people seem to think they need to jump to its defense more then anything else. The PS3 has had a whole generation of hate. The PS1 was said to be a failure before it even launched. The VITA is said to be dead before it has been out a year.

I have said a million times that people should wait because you can't expect a whole bunch of games so soon after the first batch for the VITA to an avalanche of disagrees but people are already making excuses for the Wii U's launch? The Wii U's launch is made up of mostly ports and games that will probably be on other systems and people are okay with that while the VITA was attacked from all sides for even have a few ports at launch or any sequels. So what makes Nintendo so special? What,are they too good for scrutiny or concern or to be attacked? Why is every concern or anyone pointing out flaws in the Wii U classified as hate? As soon as I open my mouth to criticize it in any way I am a clueless moron? Is that so? Or people just oversensitive psychos?

Give the Vita a chance but hate on the Wii Ubefore it launches..
Whats really sad is that you openly admit to being bias yet cant figure out why people dont agree with you

Why should anyone give Vita a chance yet you cannot do the same for Wii U

BTW kid if you check my post history you will find I also defended the Vita.

Hmm I'm wrong for giving every console a chance and you are right to hate on one company wanting others to wait and see about the one you prefer... And you wonder why people dont agree with you.

Also unless the first comment is an alt account of yours, you have no reason to say I am attacking you.

I think the one making excuses is you. NSMBWii wont be on other consoles.NintendoLand wont be on other console so that is 2 exclusives that wont be lost and that is more than either the 360 or PS3 had. But please continue to blindly hate one company while begging others to give Sony a chance all the while thinking you are an none bias gamer.

Its ignorance like that,that keeps me coming back here every day to laugh at people like you.. Seriously Read your post over again.
Your bias is so obvious you openly admit to it so Whytf are you even in a Wii U article??Oh that's right to put down a product you have no interest in..

BTW thanks for proving my first post 100% correct. The part about people don't mind looking stupid as long as they can hate. You couldnt even finish one post without making your bias obvious

From my own post history
"Its not anything to worry about honestly. The Vita is just starting out so its too soon to call it a failure.Just look at Virtual Boy, it didnt kill Nintendo"

Now who exactly is the hater and fanboy again?

LOL_WUT2176d ago

Well, it certainly is the only hardcore game its got that isn't a port.

I also agree with remanutd55 the more hardcore titles there are the better. :)

ronin4life2176d ago

I thought project P-100 looked pretty cool... And that is exclusive.

Ck1x2176d ago

I just don't understand why now people are deciding not to buy a system because its launching with some ports? Consoles for as long as I can remember have had ports of some sort during the initial systems launch... What's so different now?

Puddlejumper752176d ago

First gen gamers and fanboys..

They dont understand how gaming works at all.

They think the console winner this gen is the one they prefer, not knowing its always been sales that decide the winner

The think casual gaming started this gen,not knowing that gaming has been casual since it was created. 50 year old business men and 75 year old women lining up to play Space invaders and Pacman isnt what they would call hardcore.

There was an article today on the Konami code and it amazed me how many of N4Gs gaming experts had no clue what it was yet they claim to be old school.

"I just don't understand why now people are deciding not to buy a system because its launching with some ports? Consoles for as long as I can remember have had ports of some sort during the initial systems launch... What's so different now?"

True but the problem is this isn't like the last generation where it was a jump to HD and multiple consoles releasing in a short space of time. At the moment the Wii U is the only next generation console. So a port is not going to be drastically different than current consoles which a lot all ready have. I personally do not want to get a system when I am interested in only one game that isn't a port because consoles are not cheap. For me it is more cost effective and more sensible to miss out on that one game and get the ports for my current system (a lot of big games coming out) as they will be marginal differences between the games (like we see now) .

I think the only reason I will get a new system is when Microsoft and Sony start releasing theirs because then I will be able to make a wise decision but more importantly the ports will be at that next generation level because at least two possibly three of the big three will have their new systems out.

Never owned a nintendo system and I have been gaming 28 yrs but I am interested in getting a wii U just for zombie U knowing there will be some good uses for hardcore gaming down the road. Dont get me wrong loved starfox, mario 64, goldeneye and donkey kong country bk in the day, but played them to def on friends consoles instead while playing pc and ps1/2 in my own home.

ronin4life2176d ago

Damn it... scrolling with a touch screen and hit the "disagree" button....
Just subtract one from the total, if you happen to get more(which I doubt...)

You disagreers should feel silly, disagreeing with an apology.
