Wii U Daily: "Since Nintendo has loosened the restrictions on becoming an indie developer, we’ve seen a flood of people interesting in bringing their games to the console."
Totally. It's great news for Nintendo, indie devs, and the players. Everyone wins!
Not sure if your serious or not but I'd rather have more 3rd party support than a bunch of indie games. It's not a win until Nintendo gains more support from more devs. ;)
Do you know that third party support it's dead on Wii U? It's irreversible, there's no way that we can get those games again. Wait until the next home console ;)
EVERYBODY would rather have more 3rd party support Lol_, but that isn't the reality right now. The reality is that both PS4 & Wii U are getting a pretty good amount of indie games. Some of those indie games are going to be really good games.
" I'd rather have more 3rd party support " You have no idea what those terms mean, do you ?
Indie support IS third party support. What's so hard to grasp about that?
"I'd rather have more 3rd party support than a bunch of indie games." Does that opinion also apply to the PS4 then? Yeah, didn't think so ;)
I think everyone knows what LOL_WUT#1.1 means Why are so many of you playing dumb? Indy support is great- but we have few 1st party games and virtually no retail 3rd party support- It is one of the main reasons among several tat the Wii U is selling at historically poor rates- we have some good games but a very shallow library with little diversity Nintendo is playing nice w Indy s because they have little else When are all these indy games getting here- I have bought a couple close to launch 1 recently
Indie developers are third parties. lol_fail ;)
It really is, more and more indies are putting their games on the WiiU. It's a shame this site doesn't recognize or care about this obvious fact.
not to mention its THE place for nostalgia aswell :D
Oh man, so much nostalgia playing Wind Waker and 3D World. Also, all those Virtual Console games! Planning on buying Super Mario Kart, it's basically a free game if you also buy Mario Kart 8 when it comes out. (you save the same amount off Mario Kart 8 for buying Super Mario Kart as you spent on it)
well nostalgia is the only reason i was a Wii U right now XD god damn Zelda Windwaker and Mario XD i know i can play my windwaker on my PC..... but its buggy in the damn firetemple and just ruins it for me XD im one of those guys that will get a Wii U just for my Zelda Fix and will be happy for it. playing ocarina of time on the gamepad while in bed with a headset? Suuuuure :3
The gamepad is great to play most indies games and is perfect for all the retro Nintendo games.
I've never bought anything from Nitnendo based on nostalgia. I buy Nintendo products for the exact opposite reason. Evertime I get something from Nintendo, its creative and original. I can't get that from Sony and Microsoft.
Same with ps4 for Sony. Same with Xb1 for MS. Not really breaking new ground there.
yet Steam have loads more indie games released every month that both of them combined.
Steam isn't a console, so how is it relevant?
they an article where you can go nuts about it on ps4 and xbone. We don't need off topic comments
The big difference is the gamepad. Most indie games I would rather play on my gamepad then my flat screen. With a lot of big name Devs going to the indie scene it's great for Nintendo. Most indie games aren't powerhouses when it comes to graphics. This takes the high power advantage of PS4 away. The indie scene is going to continue to bigger as AAA titles will continue to get smaller. Games are just becoming too expensive to make these days.
If Nintendo puts every single game from the handhelds, ESPECIALLY RPGS, they ever made on their new Wii U Online program, I will buy every single one. I would DIE to play all those Dragon Quest games on the large screen. I personally don't see why Nintendo and other companies don't put all their old games on site. I mean, can you imagine playing all the old Sega Saturn RPGS on the Wii U? Holy Cow.
yeah! and still 500 years behind the microsofts and sony fun
I'm pretty sure the Wii U will get much more indies then the bone. We can bet on that. Indie devs don't go crawling to m$ like they do with Sony/Nintendo. OT:Nintendo and Sony are really going all out on this indie movement. Its good to have a relationship with indie developers. Some of them might turn out to be the next great studios.
Too bad Nintendo fans don't need indie games.
well thats true. our Zelda and Mario have such great replay value and nostalgia level so we can just replay stuff all the time without getting bored :D
Nintendo does need better third party support for the Wii U. Desperately.
How many indy games have been released on the wii U since 6/01/13 - It seems like we keep hearing that a big wave is coming= at 1st around the holidays 2013, then in March 2014- now the date is being pushed back a little farther- Now most of the indy games release dates are "TBD" which is as good as saying "we don t know'
would the people disagreeing w my questions please provide some answers and some backup to what they disagree with?
The eShop is packed with them; there is no "big wave" because they're appearing on the shop frequently and regularly. They even have their own subsection of the eShop specifically for them. Also, a ton of Kickstarters are adding Wii U stretch goals and they're getting filled fast. Many of the indie games that have TBD release dates don't have release dates on other consoles either.
Most people dont' answer because there are some levels of ignorance that just give them a headache when they read it. When people are vocally talking against something that they clearly have not spint one minute looking into, why waste their time
