'Best game on Wii U'? That's not that hard tho is it? Will it really sell consoles? Reaaaallllllyyyyyy?
classic200  +   781d ago
LOL I know its possible that it is a great game but it will sell the consoles is a little bit too much.

Might can get kids audience but not most mature gamers.

I am more excited for this than I was for Mario U.

I don't see why not, imagine a kid seeing an advert for it. If I was a kid and saw an advert of a Lego man running around a Lego city doing Lego stuff my head would explode.

are kids really into lego these days? I have no clue
TechnicianTed  +   781d ago
@grailly

Yes they are.

@technicianTed
ok cool, didn't know at all. In a show I watch there was a joke about people not knowing what lego is anymore, thought there was some truth to it.

are they playing with just the building blocs or is it the "prebuilt" sets?
TechnicianTed  +   780d ago
Um, prebuilt sets? If you mean boxes of lego that have instructions in to build a model that has been designed by someone else, then yes, they play with them.

My sons got so much lego now though I think he could build a real size Death Star lol.

From my experience from my kids, their friends, kids from the rest of my family, and my friends children, a lot of them are very much into lego.

And some kids who never grow up, like myself, don't grow out of loving lego.

How can you, when you see stuff like this?

@Dailynch thats plenty hard to do. did you forget wii u has darksiders 2, Assassin's creed 3, Mass effect 3, Batman Arkham City, Tekken, and lots more. not exclusives but still Wii U games.

It looks good at least

Traveller's Tales dev says Traveller's Tales game is the best game on a console without any games?

Hmm.
PrivateRyan  +   781d ago
Maybe for now…
1upgamer99  +   781d ago
The game looks great. I will pick it up for Wii U, but I am not sure how many systems it will sell though. I hope it does. Some people will only buy a game if it is at least T for teen. They think otherwise the games are "kiddie games" no matter how fun or challenging the game may be. I don't need to pick up a hooker, or slash someones throat all of the time to have a good time...LOL :)

You know you aren't forced to do any of that all the time in GTA.. I don't know why everyone acts like GTA is made to be so violent and perverted.

That is the players choice, that is apart of the game making moral choices.. A) I can hit someone with my car while I am driving down the street or B) I can simply drive down the road like a normal person.

Sadly I don't play games to live like I do in life.. Not dissing Lego City I just can't stand when people act like GTA forces you to constantly kill innocent people or have sex with hookers and so on when it doesn't.

If you wanted to, you could play GTA just like Lego City without ever doing a bad thing period.

I know where you are coming from, and I agree. All I meant was if a game is fun without all of the violence, well that is okay with me. I play GTA too, and in that game I am far from innocent. :>

That's sad
gamer42  +   781d ago
It's only sad if it's a bad game.
Nodoze  +   781d ago
Game looks very promising. I know my 6 and 7 year olds are both looking forward to this one.
ape007  +   781d ago
it might be wiiu's best game (after NSMBU) but sell consoles?? i don't think so, if it was GTA V and was exclusive to wiiu, it would move at 10 million consoles

the system just needs a more variety games.
without any incentive, wii u ain't gonna sell well...for the time being.

I'm just holding out for the zelda games. they are what keep making me purchase nintendo consoles.
Jek_Porkins  +   781d ago
I plan on getting it, it was one of the reasons I bought a Wii, aside from the prospect of an HD Mario, Zelda, Metroid and other first party games. Rayman Legends was also a reason, but we know what happened there.
CalvinKlein  +   781d ago
What a hate article! The games on WiiU are not that bad!!!!
ape007  +   781d ago
i found zombie u to be very very good, the game may lack a lot of flash\cutscenes etc.. but the core game design, the core gameplay is absolutely fantastic, zombie u is the complete of resi6 aka all flash no substance

zombie u was their first game ever i think, i want these talented developers to make zombie u 2 on wiiu or ps4\720

ZombiU was developed by Ubisoft. It's far from their first game.
ape007  +   781d ago
^^^^^^
opps, ma bad
smashcrashbash  +   781d ago
Since when do Lego games sell consoles? Not trolling.Just pointing out that I have never seen out of all the Lego games made any of them being console sellers
LOL_WUT  +   781d ago
Considering how the only good games on the Wii U are few and far between, this might actually work out in Lego City's favor and it could make it stand out more. Hence, being the best game on the Wii U but, I could be wrong though. ;)
profgerbik  +   781d ago
I feel when a Lego game becomes a system seller something has gone severely wrong. Maybe it is just me or the fact I would never believe any Lego games to be a reason to purchase a console let alone even a handheld.

I don't enjoy them personally and I don't care if anyone does but buying a system for those types of games seems a it overkill.. I am sure maybe very few will but I doubt this game is gonna start having Wii U's flying off the shelves..
Captain Qwark 9  +   781d ago
i enjoyed the first couple but they are so basic and mindless that they get boring quick and other than using legos as graphics they have little to nothing to actually do with legos. when i think legos i think creativity, building, imagination, etc. those games have none of those qualities. minecraft is the real lego game
falcon79  +   781d ago
If u think LegoCity thats basically Lego GTA won't sell WiiU's your daft,lego games are extremly successful on Nintendo hardware and in the UK we love these games,it's graphics are superb as well basically it's NEXTGEN lego,by the way ive been following this game and in an updated memo there is now 200 vehicles wow.
mcstorm  +   781d ago
Im looking forward to this game and pre ordered it. The strange this is I don't know why im looking forward to it as I have never liked gta games and could not get into red dead.

I hope it lives up to what I expect and I also hope it helps sell more Wiiu consoles to.
TuxedoMoon  +   781d ago
The game looks really interesting and it is something I'd want to get for the Wii-u. But to say it will sell systems? This is lego...this isn't Mario Kart or Zelda. Those games are system sellers. I just don't think this game has the potential to move sales for the wii-u at all. Still looks good, but not good enough
FinalomegaS  +   781d ago
system seller?

maybe if they bundle it with the system but i don't see this being a system seller since MH3U is coming out also....
AWBrawler  +   780d ago
didn't those leggo games on 3DS boost sales when it wasn't selling likr hot cakes. then this one is exclusive. Lego games do sell. we cant deny that
MilkMan  +   781d ago
Ill stay optimistic on this one.
Trago1337  +   781d ago
My younger brother can't stop talking about this game, so i think it will resonate with kids, not so much Nintendo Fans or other gamers.
Munnkyman  +   781d ago
It looks fun, and with 60 hours of story mode I am in. This and monster hunter for me this month
