Do You Still Like Your Wii U?

Game Informer - It's almost been five months since Nintendo launched the Wii U. The system hit with some solid first-party offerings like New Super Mario Bros. U along with ports of popular games like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin's Creed III. Wii U owners haven't had much new to play since the console's release, and to (Wii U)

I like the console but not it's game library. Once I get more games for it and more games come out for it, I'll use it more.

I like it but...
I will like it even more when there are more appealing games for me.

Im not out to change anyone's view of the wii-u. I like the idea, i see potential and I'm a patient person. I know the games will deliver.

Now if there will be some sort of update as to when 90's arcade racer is coming out.....looking so forward to that game.

i think to many wii-u will be a failure because it won't sell as much as wii, but that's like saying ps3 failed because it didn't sell as much as ps2 or psp failing even though it sold 60 plus million

all wii-u needs are games and a lot of games, i still don't understand how these publishers launch new systems without games. we went through the same thing with ps3

i hope MS and Sony are taking notes because we needs games at launch

i don't see wii-u selling 60 plus million but it will do alright, as always nintendo is stuck in the middle, they are not next gen and people are tired of last gen. and the message of wii-u is very confusing to those not 100% familiar with gaming. if they had called it wii2 or wiiHD IMO that would have been better for consumer awareness
kirbyu  +   867d ago
I still don't see how it's a current gen console.

It was the 1st Nintendo console after Wii, it improves on the Wii, it will compete with ps4 and 3rd xbox, and if ps5 and 4th xbox come out and if Nintendo makes a console after Wii U, said console will compete with other said consoles. So what's current gen about it?
scissor_runner  +   867d ago
Just got a ps3 for the god of war collection but I'm playing a ton of need for speed and monster hunter with the 3ds also.

Being playing with java script on it a little also. Pretty impressive.

I usually don't get Lego games but wow I like this better than gta. Nintendo land Pikman made me a believer along with the Zelda and metroid games. It really is too bad people are simply ignoring this console.

I also still have to beat ninja gaiden and zombiu.

The graphic heavy games have not even started yet. So I'm good right now. Plus indies are doing a good job on this system.
kirbyu  +   867d ago
My brother hates the Pikmin & Metroid Nintendo Land games.
scissor_runner  +   867d ago
The music in Pikman is some of the best in game music I've heard in a while. Why does he hate those games?
Shnazzyone  +   867d ago
Right now I really like it but it does feel like it's in beta. Zen pinball, blops2 and MH3U is keeping me busy for now. Until nintendo updates the system features and it gets a few more titles to justify it's existence. I still wouldn't recommend someone else to pick one up yet. Especially since by end of year (likely just before ms and sony drop their system) we'll likely see that price drop a tad.

Best system I've had since n64. and could surpass it once the hard hitters hits. the system is just pure fun. games had lost that for a while. at what point did games turn into trophies/achievements? I had missed the days of just picking up a game and playing it to enjoy it. and wiiu owners are the ones paving the way for its return. hence why cod didn't fair so well on wiiu. we love games for fun.

"Best system I've had since N64"

Wow, you've really been missing out all these years.
DigitalRaptor  +   867d ago
Fair enough for you. However, if you think that Wii U is better (at the moment) than PS2, PS3, 360, even Dreamcast, I will just sit and smirk from behind my hand.

Kinda like this: http://24.media.tumblr.com/...

Nothing compares to Dreamcast
IIC0mPLeXII  +   868d ago
Its a slow burn. It will pick up steam just like all Nintendo consoles. Give it some time.

To me, Nintendo consoles have been secondary consoles for more than a decade. Ever since the N64, I've never viewed it as a primary console for the hardcore gamer.

I understand that there are people out there that still want to play Mario, Zelda, and Metroid games, but I the market for these games is dwindling IMO.

There will always be a market for Nintendo. Just because your not a kid doesn't mean Disney isn't going to make millions.
BitbyDeath  +   868d ago
Disney movies often have subtle adult themes/jokes in their movies which appeals to adults. Nintendo do not.

Not knocking Nintendo but poor comparision is poor.
truechainz  +   867d ago
@bitbydeath

clearly you havent played luigi's mansion 2 yet

@Logicwins

In the sense of third party nintendo has been secondary for me, but my favorite games have always come from nintendo consoles each gen. Just another opinion
HexxedAvenger  +   868d ago
I like my Wii-U. I wouldn't buy it if I didn't like it. Not to mention, I have monster hunter. I'm good. Can't wait for all the heavy hitters to be out.
Trunkz Jr  +   868d ago
I love my Wii U, but right now it's dusty. Just waiting for some more good games to come out, thats all.
LOL_WUT  +   868d ago
Fair enough ;)

E3 is going to be very interesting.
Ilovetheps4  +   868d ago
These might not be your types of games, but you should give Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Lego City a look. I'm thoroughly enjoying these games. I have 50 hours in Monster Hunter and I haven't gotten bored at all yet.
Studio-YaMi  +   867d ago
That's exactly how I feel about my Wii U too,but I've been passing time playing lots and lots of MH3:Ultimate,greatest game on the Wii U to date IMO.
DA_SHREDDER  +   868d ago
I'm playing monster hunter on the gamepad and looks better than on my tv. I love my WiiU too,
G20WLY  +   867d ago
Sorry to hear about your TV - if it can't be repaired, buying a new one may be long overdue :)

Monster Hunter is a good game, I always enjoy it!
animegamingnerd  +   868d ago
i do i am loving monster hunter and i finally got around to playing AC3 on it and this week i am trying to finish up xenoblade and maybe i might pick up pandora's tower
thezeldadoth  +   868d ago
i love the interface and controller and how little space the console takes up. Its also the best netflix machine out there. Mario, Lego City, and sonic racing have all been awesome games.
josephayal  +   868d ago
Maybe one day the Wii U will takes my PS3/360 spot as favorite console
Trago1337  +   868d ago
I just want the big games. For now, it's ok.
chrisarsenalsavart  +   868d ago
waiting for the new metroid game
ShaunCameron  +   868d ago
I love it. I just wish there could be more games to make use of it.
Dannagar  +   868d ago
It hasn't been used since the day I bought it. I'm waiting for Bayonetta 2 and Wind Waker. For now, it's gathering dust.
MNGamer-N  +   868d ago
My WiiU and PS4 are getting married this fall. I am so excited for the happy couple!
gamer42  +   868d ago
I wanna be there for the wedding.
MasterCornholio  +   867d ago
Just don't let the 720 crash the wedding.

Jek_Porkins  +   868d ago
Of course I still like my Wii U, I have about 10 games for it, but it needs some of the Nintendo staples, Mario 3D, Zelda, Mario Kart, Metroid, Smash Bro's, Starfox, Mario Party and Animal Crossing.

I'll have plenty of fun when those types of games come out.
Drainage  +   868d ago
i knew launch would suck but i know all the nintendo games will eventually arrive and I will have the option to play them all unlike nintendo haters.
Erimgard  +   868d ago
I love my Wii U. Needs more software and faster loading times, but I don't regret the purchase.
THEMIGHTYDOOVDE  +   868d ago
Ditto
_QQ_  +   868d ago
still like it, will love it once all these announced games get release dates.
Realplaya  +   868d ago
Like what type of question is that I love it.
just-joe  +   868d ago
Yes, it just needs game. Though seeing as I'm going through what they have now as well as my backlog of 360 and PS3 games, I can wait for when Nintendo brings out it's big name games.
Edward75  +   868d ago
Playing Monster hunter more then any other game atm. It may only last a month or 2 more, but hopefully by then something comes out for the WiiU!
Parapraxis  +   868d ago
Not so much.
I'm sure I'll like it when there are core franchise titles on it, like Zelda, Mario Kart, etc, and I'd like it even more if Nintendo would make a trophy/achievement system, there's really no excuse not to have one.
I've been gaming for 20 years, achievements/trophies are not necessary, but I like them, and I personally get more value out of my games with them...as silly as it is.

I'm loving it still. Played the crap out of Nintendo land, scribblenaughts and nsmb then during the dry period I caught up on the wii games I wanted to play but couldn't since I skipped the wii. Now I'm playing Lego city and looking forward to the rest of the year for releases.

It's really a great system and its a shame people are hating on it purely because they are afraid of the new controller (which still surprises me how comfortable and natural it is.) there are a tons of games for it, a lot may not be to people's taste but Lego city, mass effect, batman, assassins creed are all amazing with it and need for speed has even been proclaimed as the better version by the devs.

Honesty it's made my Xbox more used then it was since January and I playe my fill of halo 4. Still play my playstation lot but my wii u has had a lot of attention.
mydyingparadiselost  +   868d ago
My internet browsing is now almost completely done on the gamepad and on my slow days at work I can hook up the system and play on the gamepad which is AWESOME. I love it, can't wait for Bayonetta 2!
worldwidegaming  +   868d ago
Good! I am enjoying monster hunter!
THEMIGHTYDOOVDE  +   868d ago
My Xbox has been collecting dust since MH3U.
truechainz  +   867d ago
I love it. I agree with everyone that there could be more games, but I'm using this opportunity to get through my backlog on 360, ps3, and also using the wii mode to catch up on some lesser known wii titles that have turned out to be really underrated. I will be fine cuz I always have more games to play.
OwlEyes  +   867d ago
Yep. There was an annoying drought from December to late March, but with games like Lego City, Runner 2, Toki Tori 2, Need For Speed, Monster Hunter all out in the last month or so, I've been very busy.
PFFT  +   867d ago
Yes yes i do. I love My Nintendo Wii U.
MH3U is a freaking blast!
