Wii-U, the Perfect Companion Console

Michael Alan at RetroGameFix.com writes: "I know what you are thinking, what the [explicative]? The Wii-U? Yes. The Wii-U will be the console I purchase along with my PS4. People can argue PS4, Xbox One or Both all day every day. But in my opinion the combination of the PS4 or Xbox One and the Wii-U will provide more must play exclusives for the life of this generation than combining the PS4 and Xbox together."

I will get one once there is 10 must play games on it.

BullyMangler1463d ago

so you will be getting a wiiU before a ps4 XoNe

wheresmymonkey1463d ago

A challenge ay.

Mario 3D World
Wind Waker HD
Wonderful 101
ZombiU
Arkham City Armored ED
Bayonetta 2
Smash Bros
Mario Kart 8
X
Zelda WiiU
Rayman Legends
Fire Emblem X SMT
Sonic Lost Worlds

Here's 13 granted they're not all out yet but most bar maybe X and Zelda should by the end of next year.

Concertoine1463d ago

good list except sonic lost world and arkham city aren't exactly bragging points.
yarn yoshi is another people forgot about, also mh3u is only on wii u :P

Hicken1462d ago

Are all those even out?

And remakes aren't usually considered must-plays, unless they were missed the first time around. And isn't Rayman multiplat now?

Seriously, though, your list has three games that are must-play titles for me: Bayonetta 2, X(which doesn't even have an official name, let alone a release date), and Fire Emblem X SMT. That leaves seven more games, by the Pope's decree.

RAFFwaff1463d ago

There are alot of great games already for it: Mario 3d World, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Zelda Wind Waker, Splintercell Blacklist, Rayman Legends, Earhbound, Monster Hunter Ultimate......

Also, your pic and name is not very clever and disrespectful in my opinion.

for we are many1463d ago

For me it's Wii U and PC, I might get ps4 if sony's exclusives turn out to be fun unlike KZ: Shadowfall, I may also get X1 when the price drops.

Fanboyssuck271463d ago

For me its Wii U as my first console, gonna get ps4 when price drops and they start getting some good games.

wheresmymonkey1463d ago

I totally agree. in fact i'm currently writing my own article along a similar line. The WiiU is the perfect 2nd console. The xbone and the PS4 besically offer the same kind of experiences on the games front.

The WiiU offers something a little bit different to that. Occasionally you just want to play domething,simple, fun, weird and colourful and the WiiU scratches that itch and then some.

wonderfulmonkeyman1463d ago

Doesn't hurt that those colorful games can sometimes be packed full of action too, though.
Wonderful 101 and the upcoming Bayonetta 2 are both awesome additions to any core gamer's library of challenging titles.

wheresmymonkey1463d ago

No not at all. I played Bayonetta 2 at eurogamer, absolutely blew me away, likewise Wonderful 101 is one of the best action games i've played all year.

I know its highly unlikely but i would love it if platinum ended up having a relationship with nintendo like rare did in the 90s. A platinum/treasure devleoped star fox would be incredible.

wonderfulmonkeyman1463d ago

@ Monkey:
Agreed.
The only problem I can foresee is people bugging Kamiya too much.
He's infamous for the verbal lashings he's given to people that have been too persistent in asking him for stuff.
I think that's why he decided against helping make a Starfox in the end, actually; he mentioned wanting to do it, people bugged him to no end about pushing for it, and he reversed his decision.
Something like that, anyways...

Yep1463d ago

I have no companion consoles. Wii U is just as much of a main as my PC.
