Am i the only one who doesn't care about indie games?at least the kind like chasing Aurora.Everyone is trying to make the indie scene a huge deal for next gen.

It's because aaa games are becoming more expensive to make and so indie games fill out the empty months and days. Some indies are amazing like bit trip runner. It's only gunna get bigger so u best learn to respect the indie scene

I can only see game droughts for people who only own one system. My problem is some indie games are too expensive for what they are. Example this game.

seriously i tried the demo it just sucks it's not worth buying and the initial price was too high for something like this

agreed, nintendo eshop prices are outrageous! they need to consider that allot of the eshop virtual console games are games which people have owned multiple times, and also on emulators and roms, so why not make them dirt cheap? they would sell allot more, and also the indie games are too expensive too, when i compare indie game prices in eshop to psn most times its cheaper or cheaper on my pc, so why should i give nintendo any extra?

Game droughts for people with one system? Few people own one system so that was never the problem to begin with. Its the desire to utilize the system.

Unlike Sony and Microsoft's consoles, people buy the Wii U because of its consoles features, not its money hatted games. People find the console itself fun and want games to play on it.

Its something a Nintendo hater could never understand because its something their preferred console doesn't provide.

This plain and simple

I agree the demo was quite boring.

I thought I was alone in this.

I played it, and after I actually figured out what you were supposed to do, I released that the game blew. Its pretty much a small scale racing/tag game with nothing much unique about it except you use colorful birds, and you have to play it multiplayer(from what I saw) which is another problem.

it was more like a free game i see by the dozens on my android phone and on my iphone, so why would i pay ridiculous amounts of money for it on wii u when games like it with little to no substance i can get for free elsewhere? that's the problem with eshop they are trying to sell games for more money then they are worth and which allot of the times are clones of free games on android and ios, so why not make them 99p or better yet free? the only game worth any money on wii u shop for me was trine 2 which was a master piece, and well worth every penny, and it had substance, unlike the game mentioned above!

gedden7 speaks the truth!

Ah yes, chasing aurora. The game I wanted to buy the moment I put bleach in my eyes.

Edit:
gedden7 pretty much says it.

I love indie games and have bought many on the Wii U. Chasing Aurora was not one of them. I played the demo. Its not a very fun or interesting game.

Its sad that when uninteresting/bad games don't sale on Nintendo hardware, Nintendo gets blamed for it. Maybe if they made a game people actually wanted, people would buy it.

Most indie devs have told stories on success on the Wii U so they can't claim that games don't sale on the console.

Honestly, I bought that game and have only played it once. It has a neat concept and good-looking graphics, but it's no fun if you're by yourself.

I wouldn't blame the lack of satisfaction on the Wii U customers... I would blame it on the game itself.
