GE: "A new Wii U system update is now available for Wii U."
I can see someone in the TV's reflection! Not bragging as it is easy to see, but still. I found it funny! :) EDIT: It takes little to amuse me tonight apparently.
nintendo will take advantage of the 3ds connectivity for the wii-u and allow for it to be used as a gamepad type of interface. I just got the circle pad pro for use with a few games already out. If the 3ds w/CP was an option, it would be really nice option to have. I know that Nano Assault EX is coming to the EU eshop (with CP support) but there has not been any news of a US release. Maybe they are waiting to see how well it does on the eshop before they do. Nano assault Neo on the wii-u is fun to play and I am sure the 3ds version is just as fun with the CP attached.
WII Uis getting better in almost all aspects
Not 1st party software at the moment! Most titles still have no ETA even!
What aspects are you talking about? It's not getting better. Better would require more games. I am currently playing Wii Fit on my Wii U...
Lego City Undercover, Monster Hunter 3 and Need for Speed all come out this month. Plus Bit Trip Runner 2 is out! Go play that instead of Wii Fit
Lego City Undercover...I'm getting. Need For Speed? I already have that on PC. Monster Hunter 3? No. Absolutely not. I tried it on the Wii. Terrible game. I tried the new demo this week, as well. Still terrible. The combat is sluggish and there is no story to speak of. Soul Sacrifice comes out next month. Why settle? Bit Trip Runner 2 is out on PC, as well. I'm not buying any Wii U stuff digitally until they can back up purchases to my account. If this system dies...I lose all purchases.
Wii fit xD lol, its k my wii u is collecting dust :/
don't call Monster Hunter a terrible game just because you suck at it. The game is amazing and YOU are terrible at it :P on another note: you're really playing Wii Fit???!!! WTF?? I'm a huge Nintendo fan, and I NEVER bought that casual game. It's a good game for casuals, but there are some CORE games on Wii. Why aren't you playing RE4, RE Umbrella Chronicles, No More Heroes, Mad World, Okami, Muramasa, Tomb Raider Anniversary, God Father Black Hand Edition, Scare Face, Klonoa, Zack and Wiki, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Punch Out!, Sin and Punishment Star Successor, No More Heroes 2, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Galaxy 1 or 2, Xenoblade, Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Mushroom Men, Fishing Resort, Rune Factory, Fragile Dreams, Animal Crossing, Super Smash Bros, Metroid Prime, I COULD GO ON FOREVER!!!!!!!!! there are so many damn good games on the Wii that it's a shame people only talk about the shovel ware it had. EVERY console has shovel ware, even the 360, PS2, PS3, and PSP ect. have shovel ware. That does not make those systems bad systems.
WeAreLegion So things aren't getting better because there are games coming out you don't want to play? Runner 2 is better on the Wii U cause of off screen play. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is difficult at first, but no way is the game terrible. You probably just suck at it. I'm not trying to be mean, it's just the truth with a lot of people and Monster Hunter.
Man look at these people trying defend the Wii U with their life. Wow Lego City, Monster Hunter 3 with added stuff, NFS and bit trip are their recommendations.. Man if any other system had such a poor lineup right now you know how much shit Wii U fans would be giving it? Since it's on the Wii U and by Nintendo though it is always acceptable. For christ sakes the PS Vita has more games that are far more interesting coming out soon and it is selling just as poorly. I am sorry but Lego City is not a selling point for me no Lego game ever will be, not saying they can't be fun but seriously.. Lego games aren't system sellers. Neither are ports or a multi-platform indie game that really doesn't have much depth to it. So basically they want you to be stuck playing nothing but old games on the Wii U? Amazes me people are even going to buy NSF again... even if the graphics are slightly better.. Still doesn't justify purchasing the game again just so I can have it on the Wii U. I also understand Monster Hunter is not for everyone and it is kind of stupid that no one can not like the game, I personally don't find it that amazing either. I love it but I have played tons of PC games far more entertaining and now with the Vita's lineup there are tons of games that easily compete with Monster Hunter that are coming out.. PSO 2, Malicious Rebirth just announced for NA and EU, Toukiden by Tecmo Koei, Soul Sacrifice and Ragnarok Odyssey.. Not including Lord of Apocalypse if that ever gets localized. God forbid if you like something more or have another interest in the same type of games that aren't titled Monster Hunter. For the people saying you suck at MH that is just stupid, the game is slow that is how MH is, it takes forever to hunt the monsters unless they are smaller.. I don't get why anyone is disagreeing with you on that, maybe they find that fun but this person doesn't. No denying the game moves at a very slow pace compared to other more action oriented titles.
There was a guy whose system died had all his wII and WII U digital games on it and Nintendo gave him enough money to buy whatever he wanted. So even though they don't have a back up plan they do right by there fans.
When Wii Fit U comes out all the soccer moms will have a must-buy purchase. And I hear the gamepad supports at home tanning for all the girlz
It was fun when I owned one but I sold it cus I figured my money would go better towards the Nextbox and PS4....BUT, it's possible I may still buy a Wii U again once we see games like Pikmin and another Zelda game.
It only does another useless update.
this update improves the load times of the console which was i hear the biggest problem with the system
Biggest problem with the system is a lack of games at the moment.
@Dlacy13g true but i meant with the hardware and besides there are quite a few games coming at the end of the month
@Dlacy13g, lack of games? then what the hell is ME3, Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed, Tekken Tag 2, Black Ops II, Warriors Orochi, Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge, Assassin's Creed III, NSMBU, Zombi U, Batman Arkham City, Bit Trip Runner, Nano Assault Neo, Trine 2, NBA2k, and Darksiders 2? Those are all great games AND the system is backwards compatible with ALL Wii games/virtual console/Wii Ware?? If you own a Wii U and are complaining there are no games for it, you are one lazy SOB who can't get on amazon or ebay and look for games, because there are loads of great games you can play on Wii U. If you owned a PS3 or 360 and bought a Wii U and never owned a Wii, I would recommend The Last Story, Muramasa, and if for some retarded reason you haven't played it yet, Okami. Those are 3 games that are well worth your time and money, and are more than enough to hold you over til Lego City, Monster Hunter, Wonderful 101, Pikmin 3, and Need For Speed Most Wanted come out.
does the wii u upscale wii games to hd?
@WiiUSauce Most of those games are ony ps3, 360, or PC. When a console is referred to as having no games it's usually exclusives. Why buy a wii U when I can already get most of those games on my ps3 or 360.
@darlzero then by this logic ps3 and 360 have no game since they dont have that many exclusive
hopefully it speeds up the OS because it's painfully slow.
Does this update make it next-gen?
Stop being a Fanboy and embrace the fact that for Nintendo this console is a huge step!
A huge step into having no 3rd party games in the coming years....
@kwietstorm Nintendo Revolution? lol
http://www.youtube.com/watc... PC level of fidelity? Not next gen? I know it's not as powerful as the PS4, but it's still more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PS3, and A SHITLOAD MORE POWERFUL than the original Wii. And keep in mind that the system is capable of this quality of visuals IN ITS FIRST YEAR. The Wii U will be a BEAST in 3 years and can be home to some great exclusive 3rd party content like maybe side stories or spin offs to core franchise games like RE, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy, ect.
First of all, never say beast or core games in the same sentence as nintendo. Doesnt exist. Nintendo is built for children and casual girl gamers. It will never be a beast in 3 years. Infact in 3 years ps4 and xbox 720 are gonna be spittin out real next gen games while wii u will be begging 3rd party devs to even participate in making games for there gimmick box. Did you really comment up top saying animal crossing is a core game? Wii fans are the most delusional kids ive ever seen. When your balls drop you can go get a job so you can buy a big boy game box.
@NEo Tribe you kill me on here. For one the wii was built on the mindset that every body can pick up and play this system because it's fun. Go ahead and blast the gimmick controller because remember the other companies we all know and love decided it would draw these same casual game crowds we all love to hate on that Nintendo was getting. Lets just say lets not cast a stone less your house is not glass. We as people have to remember that Nintendo tried to do something that other companies would not risk and could care less about and that's bringing back people who wouldn't play games because they found the controllers to complicated. If you think this was a bad idea why would sony and microsoft try to do the same thing. Knock Nintendo all you want as much money as they have lost one thing they can say is were not laying people off.
@ Neotribe Why are you in here? You clearly don't care about a WiiU system update. Go Away
@ Chupa-Chupa The number of agrees you have makes me sad for some of the people on this site.
The PS4 also isn't next gen! My PC rig can testify to that ;-)
My PC can too! Good for you! But the fact remains that PS4,XBox 720 and the WiiU are all Next gen consoles in that they are following This gen. You can own, play and enjoy all of these things....Really! Graphics don't always a good game make.
You're putting PC in console gens? As a PC gamer, you should know that's wrong.
I hope my power doesn't flicker like it did on launch day, killing my first Wii U an hour after buying it. Talk about bad luck, my power rarely flickers. Who builds a piece of hardware without having a fail safe for corrupted updates, oh wait Nintendo does.
Seriously, true story. My first Wii U was broke in an hour, because my power went out for under a min during the the initial update. The lady at best buy tried to accuse me of turning it off during the update.
So they wouldn't let you exchange it?
It was best buy, they have to no matter what the reason for 30 days.
Just downloaded it, I don't know what it did.
Loading apps is much faster and so is returning to the home menu.
i heard this one is for system stability and the one in april is to speed os.
Okay but what about the games? Monster Hunter 3, Pikmin 3 and Bayonetta 2 are coming out soon and they're gonna be great but lets keep it real guys, they wont be system sellers The big guns start in late august with the remake of zelda wind waker then I HOPE mario kart and the new 3d mario come out at the end of this year, that and a $50 price cut would make me buy a WiiU even though I'll also be getting a ps4 ;)
Any Monster Hunter title is a system seller, Suck it has to be the WiiU in this case. Should have been for the PS3 like it was originally intended for. Edit: To be specific, MHTri.
i hope wiiu fans get to play sometime this week knowing how dang slow updates r for the fun but 1997 tech wiiu is lol
Two minute update dawg, two minutes... smh far from the primary update which included a helluva lot of stuff
Hopefully this updates enables 3rd party devs giving a crap about the system!!!
Cool. Nice to see it getting worked on. Would be great to have some moderation used in here, the amount of trolling from those above is ridiculous.
What do expect from children?
Sadly(in case you haven't interacted with them), the moderation isn't much better. Most of the them are hard core Sony fanboys and they will use their privileges to promote this type of thing from the side.
After the system update my system froze, locked up sound and all, and I was scared to death to do anything. After a lot of praying to the Nintendo gods, I pulled the plug and restarted the system. Everything is running perfect thankfully. *huge sigh of relief
Ya I had a funny sound too when shutting down last night, weird! Everything is ok now tho
Wasn't this about a system update. Where all the haters come from?
Nintendo cant even update a system without being hated on. A buncha high quality games releasing this month and it catches hate. Give them a break damn, or dont. Internet fanboys dont stop nintendo from making money. Mario will sell millions, Kart will sell millions, zelda, smash, party millions. People will still hate but the cash registers like Nintendo. Just ask the 3ds thats destroying its competition. Next gen started last november, its current gen now
