Aside from Madden, I fail to see how anything Wii U can be the ultimate version of anything.
Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II  +   885d ago
Sorry but that would be the pc version which i can play in 2560x1600 thats the best version but not saying wii-u version isnt good but saying its the best is off the mark.
ChickeyCantor  +   885d ago
eh, doesn't this version have improved code?
Xof  +   885d ago
Since when is visual fidelity the metric by which we judge game quality?

All they have to do to make it superior to the PC or PS3 or 360 version is simply not make Boss fights suck so hard.
Triforce079  +   885d ago
If they say its better its better get a grip ?? fanboys.
Realplaya  +   885d ago
Just case the PC looks better does not make it better. Lets be honest the Wii U version looks great and I ads multiple elements that the PC can't. Take away the 2560x1600 of the PC now what does It do better?
The_Con-Sept  +   884d ago
I have an idea...... I can see it now. "Best 3 year old game experience on this version!"

Sorry I can't play this game on yet another platform just because of motion controls.
LOL_WUT  +   884d ago
How many times have we heard this? In the end it ends up being subpar ;)
wampdog29  +   884d ago
Yeah, as long as you have a PC that allows you to view the game in that resolution. Guess what, I have a receiver that allows me to upconvert the Wii U to 4K resolution.... see the point?
herbs  +   884d ago
Yah because resolution is what defines how good a game looks and plays lol go home Pope your a molester. The Wii U version is more optimized than any other version of this game with better effects than even the PC version and greatly enhanced gameplay through proper use of the Gamepad.

Get over it troll bitches.

that resolution doesn't make a difference. I have the PC version, and i'm gonna get the Wii U version for the enhanced gameplay, improved lighting and engine, and integrated touch controls. It'll be much more involved and overall a better game. Not to mention that the textures are hi res just like the PC version and will be 1080p.

If you watch the video he even states that it is better looking than the PC version.

The thing is you can do it with the wii u out the box for no additional charge everything you need comes with the package
Shnazzyone  +   884d ago
What about NFS Most wanted? Looks the best out of all 3 versions. Deus ex, it looks better than PC, the dev states. Must be the combo of convenient touch screen control options too.

PopRocks359  +   885d ago
Begs the question what's so "ultimate" about it if it's hitting the current generation consoles as well.

My guess? Slightly better looking graphics.
LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
My guess is the second screen I'll add a whole new level of immersion. I downloaded it off PS Plus and it while I think the subject matter is cool, the game feels like a poor mans Mass Effect. The stealth was frustrating and the shooting doesn't feel satisfying. Every part of the game feels like a chore.
Zichu  +   885d ago
So how does the second screen improve the stealth and shooting??
BattleAxe  +   885d ago

Agreed, definitely an overrated game. I bought it on Steam, and I couldn't bring myself to play it for more than 3 hours. The graphics are average, the shooting is meh (just like you said), the story isn't all that great and the world just feels lifeless.

Its like they were trying to copy different aspects of games such as Rainbow Six Vegas, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid and The Darkness, but it ultimately ended up feeling really flat on all levels...or at least that was the feeling that I got while playing the game.

LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
Zichu, I never said it did. I just said it would make the game more immersive as in controlling augmemtations and hacking via touch controls.

@BattleAxe- Yeah, the gameplay isnt satisfying. Dont know why it gt such high praise from critics.

TechnicianTed  +   885d ago
'Dont know why it gt such high praise from critics. '

Maybe because other people liked it more than you did, because your opinion isn't the holy grail of gaming?
LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
Obviously others liked it more than I did. What I stated is that I dont understand "why" they liked it more than I did.
TechnicianTed  +   885d ago
I'm sure you've been on this planet long enough to know that people have different tastes Logic. There are people that love different music to me, I understand it's because they have different tastes, I've known that for a long time.

If you're still having problems understanding that, then I don't know what to say, because it's a basic fact of life.
Xof  +   885d ago
Mass Effect 3 is the poor man's Mass Effect.
LOGICWINS  +   885d ago
TechnicianTed, even people who have certain tastes can explain WHY they have certain tastes. For instance, some people prefer fish/reptiles as pets because they are allergic to dog/cat fur.
TechnicianTed  +   885d ago
Ok LOGICWINS I'll let you know why I love Deus Ex.

I love it because it gives you a lot of freedom of choice in how you tackle objectives, there are not enough games of this type for my liking, and Deus Ex is one of the best ones. I also love the world it's set in, and all the back story that can be uncovered along the way.

While I don't think it is better than the original Deus Ex, it is still a great example of how a game of this type can work.

There you go, now you know.
_QQ_  +   884d ago
I think it has gamepad features, we will see but i'm not expecting much.
PopRocks359  +   884d ago
Apparently you're not the only one if those ten disagrees on my initial comment is an accurate representation of just how many people could not pick up on my sarcasm.
#2.2.1 (Edited 884d ago ) | Agree(2) | Disagree(1) | Report
_QQ_  +   884d ago
I think on this site it may be safe to assume that those disagrees came from the slightly better graphics comment.
PopRocks359  +   884d ago
No kidding. I was being sarcastic and no one caught it. That "slightly better graphics" bit was supposed to be in line with the first part of the comment.

As in I don't expect slightly better graphics at all. If anything I'm cynical of anything about the Wii U version being "ultimate" given that the game is coming to every platform.
thezeldadoth  +   884d ago
better graphics, native 1080, reworked boss battles, and touch controls which will be really great with this particular game.
Shnazzyone  +   884d ago
The ultimate part is with this version the boss battles are not outsourced. They are actually redone by the original developers. The boss battles really were a huge complaint about the original and that is kindof a big deal. In addition, there are tweaks to improve the overall interface, features added, and of course. Graphics and framerate improvements. That is what makes it the ultimate version.

The idea behind a "Director's Cut" is it includes things they weren't able to fit in the Original. Either stuff they wanted to do but didn't have the time/money, or new things they came up with since release.

Better graphics, more content, more intuitive inventory/menu system all leads to what should be a better product. At least that's what the math says.

ziratul  +   885d ago
Wii is getting only these obscure games.
thezeldadoth  +   884d ago
yeah because assassins creed, batman, splinter cell, watch dogs, those are just obscure

also, 90 metacritic, i think its something worth having

bayonetta 2 might be obscure but that doesn't stop there being petitions from people wanting it on other consoles.
RFornillos4  +   885d ago
in my opinion, i wouldn't consider the game as "the best" in it's genre, but it was definitely not bad. for me, i'd grade it above average. yes, it does feel like a chore to do at times, but i guess it depends on how you perceived the game as a whole.

i also found the option of going "stealthy" all the way throughout the mission, but end up being more like an action shooter in the boss missions also odd, but nevertheless found the game to be, all in all, good.

what i didn't like in the game was how it switches from 3rd person, to 1st person when shooting. i dunno, i feel it was either 3rd person all the way (except hacking part), or 1st person all the way. but it's a small complaint really.
Crillvirus81  +   885d ago
I guess none of you own I wii u cause if you did you would know every game as long as they they don't down grade the visuals to less then what the wii u can do will allways be better on wii u ...the pad adds so much from map display to off screen multiplayer to off screen play etc the possibility are great its just everybody so focused on ps4 and xbox one they won't even give the the wii u a try the devs too ..I have all 3 current gen consoles and the wii u is the first next gen one I have so far till ps4 comes but that don't change the fact that the wii u runs circles around 360 and ps3... I don't even touch my old consoles unless a new game comes out which there haven't been none I just beat last of us in 2 days so back the the wii u i go ...ya should give it a try before ya hate and I don't mean a store demo I mean at someone's home cause then you will see how good it is ...I'm a active person and a working father of 3 so its great to come home after a long day sit at the table and eat while surfing the web on the wii pad then sit back in my back yard and play a few games while sitting back and enjoying a nice smoke and a cold one .....I can even go online a shoot people in call of duty which by the way runs way better on the wii u then on the 2 other consoles with all the same features minus the maps ... If I get stuck some where I can pause the game look it up on the web then go right back to where I left off or go ask for help on miiverse which is like face book for gamers and I have been helped by people on there a few times allready and there some nice drawing up there too ..then at the end of the night me and my wife jump right on Nintendo tv where We can look for some thing to watch based off of a lot of dif factors like actors ,live ,favs etc or even connect right to Netflix or amozon video until we find some thing to watch ... And it's all for free and did I mention the wii pad controls every thing in your living room cable box ,tv, stereo ,etc it will swtich your inputs,put your volume up change your channel etc .. so you don't even have to get up now whats not great about that I don't know why people don't see what Nintendo made here it really does it all ....yes it won't be as powerful as ps4 or x1 etc but its stronger then last gen and that gave us pretty games like tomb raider,god of war , gears ,bioshock, last of us , metal gear, so it will get some pretty games .....I will enjoy then all like a true gamer I can't wait to get a ps4 and Xbox one I got them both pre ordered and paid all ready so I hope ya wii u bashers read this and give it at least a try before you comment or let a game web site or worker change your view on a console without you realy trying it for your self..your only robing your self out of a great experience :-)
byeGollum  +   885d ago
Sounds like you're getting the most out of your WiiU. I'll be joining the miiverse soon.
Crillvirus81  +   885d ago
For real I really am its really a great console and the screen resolution on the wii pad looks so clear you would think it was a 1080 display i guess its cause the image is not being streched like it is on our tvs cause the picture on the pad be looking way more better then the images on my 3d tv ...and it has some ok games right now and some good ones on the Vc on the eshop ..but come November I better not hear the famous wii u has no games complaint cause by then we will have batman ,watch dogs, splinter cell, rayman ,call of duty , donkey kong ,wonderful 101, pikmin, dc sribbnauts ,deus ex ,assasins creed4, Mario 3d world etc, I wanna see whats going to be every ones next complaint ..I wish gamers would be more friendly and stop choosing sides each company has something that the other ones don't ...
byeGollum  +   885d ago
Yeah, I want deus ex for WiiU but its delayed cause they're making the directors cut for current gen systems. . . I'm looking forward to wonderful 101, that'll release earlier here in Europe, August. I got to play monster hunter on it at a friends house, the game looked gorgeous and I love the potential of the gamepad especially what deus ex is doing with it.

I don't understand why gamers downplay other platforms. I don't think I ever will, and things won't change anytime soon. Just ignore the politics and game.

"Dev: Wii U version of Deus Ex is 'the ultimate version'"

Ultimately, I hope it sells well.
Crillvirus81  +   885d ago
Company's are looking at attach rates now they allways do with new consoles so if the wii u version only sells 50 to a hundred thousand it's a better attach rate then say a million on Xbox cause there's like 70 something million Xbox compared to 4 million wii u's .. And it shows them that money can be made there of course its not going to sell like the ps3 or Xbox version there's millions of them consoles out there if the wii u version of watch dogs or assassin credd or any third party game this fall doesn't do better or about the same sales wise as the the ps4 and Xbox one version of the same game then Nintendos got a problem ...all these current gen multi platform games are going to all ways out sell the wii u version

Say you and I sell t-shirts for a living. If I produce 1 and sell 1, but you produce 100 and sell 50, by your logic...I am more successful?

Realplaya  +   885d ago
By his logic he is correct. You have sold 100% of your inventory and he only sold 50%
oof46  +   884d ago
@Realplaya: Yes. Even though I most likely made $10 and he made $500. Flawed logic.
BosSSyndrome  +   884d ago
No, oof46, you made more money. For simplicity's sake let's say shirts are 2 dollars to make and you sell them for 3 dollars. You spent 2, made 3, and had a profit of 1 dollar. He spent 200, made 150, and had a loss of 50. This is how business works, bro.
oof46  +   883d ago
@BosSSyndrome: Yes. If we use your produce/sell numbers. But if you're pricing your inventory so low, compared to cost to produce, how could you ever expect to make a profit?

A more viable example would be shirts cost 2 dollars to make but you sell them for 5. If I made 3 and sold 2, I have a profit of $4. If he made 200 shirts and sold 150 while he made a profit of $350.

The model you used made it economically unsafe to make more, to sell more...and isn't that what game makers want? As many copies sold as possible?

Realplaya  +   885d ago
What I don't understand is if the developers have access to create a Miiverse page why won't they do it before the game is released and market the hell out of the game. I watch all the demo videos and they could send a indicator to check out the new page.
InTheLab  +   884d ago
They're asking for $50 for a game I paid like $5 on Steam, is free on PSN+, and paid $60 for almost 2 years ago. It's also on sale for $15 on Xbox 360.

So while WiiU owners get to play a great game, it's also 2 years after the fact and $35 to $50 more for a minor update.
BosSSyndrome  +   884d ago
I wouldn't call the update minor. It includes a ton of things as well as the DLC integrated into the story.
