It's Time To Buy A Wii U

Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, Hyrule Warriors, Super Smash Bros.....all these games are out this year on Wii U and give it an excellent game library. It's not just a great library though, its unique.

The first party line up on the Wii U is second to none. The issue a lot of people run into is you can't "just own a Wii U." The third party support has been bad and a lot of games like Call of Duty and Assassins Creed would be missed. I think a lot of people who own a Wii U will also end up owning either a PS4 and Xbox One to cover those third party games and the Wii U will become their second console. I love my Wii U, but I wouldn't be able to own just a Wii U.

The Wii U is definitely a mandatory purchase as a 'side console' in that, you need either the PS4/X1 for the bigger third party/some first party titles but the Wii U's exclusives are unmatched. They really are very unique.

Also, I've found that when my mates come round, we struggle to find games to play together on the X1/PS4. The Wii U is a PERFECT console for that old-skool social MP experience with Mario Kart and Super Mario 3D World.

PC is for third party games. Though I don't feel I'm missing much by not buying Call of Duty 74 and Assassin's Creed 22. Give those series a rest already!

Sony has (well, will have) some decent exclusives for PS4.

Microsoft has nothing I'm interested in until Halo or Gears of War.

I really want a Wii U. I love my 3DS; Nintendo has an amazing track record with first party games.

Pc is not for third party games because some major third party games do not release on there.

DeusEx-Machina1560d ago

PC has it's own exclusives too you know.
- Arma 3
- Total War Rome II
- Star Citizen
- Amnesia
- Starcraft 2
- Company of Heroes 2
- Planetary Annihilation
- ...

just to name a few

Smash Brothers & Mario Kart 8 are as good as any games out there.....or smash will be I should say.

They get Crapr 3rd party support and it's not their fault.

If you can make a game for a crappy phone then you can make one for a Wii U.

Easily agreeable assessment

N4g_null1560d ago

The problem is you can get away with a pc and wiiu combo and get everything on the ps4 and xbone. Then upgrade once nvidia does the tech refreshing this winter. Plus Oculus rift is going to smoke morpheus. Everyone knows sony will get some good games out in about a year or two or 3 in my case so that purchase can wait. You can't be a pc and wiiu combo right now and a ps4 later. Sony better not pull a vita support wise.

Magicite1560d ago

No way I will buy a console with almost no 3rd party support, besides most of their games are platformers or cater to Nintendo fans.

Megajon I can tell you this I have both the Wii U and PS4. They are great together, I wouldn't get rid of my Wii U for anything it is a great console. I use my ps4 for online gaming and Wii U for FUN games. I am 24 and I didn't have n64 or super nintendo so I really can't get enough mario they are fun. I love how the games are different and unique.

truechainz1560d ago

You are definitely correct, though in my specific case I realize more and more that the majority of my library that I enjoy are made up from first party games and exclusives across the Wii U, PS4, X1, and PC. They all pretty much for a balanced ecosystem in my home where all have games I like and (especially this fall) all will get equal playing time (with some fluctuation caused by games like MCC and Smash)

I have a Wii U and a PS4. The Wii U gets no use now that I'm all Mario Kart'd out. Need some DLC to come out or it will sit until the new smash bros. Wii U will have a tough time competing though for playtime with the ps4 with NHL 15 and Destiny coming out. After that my Computer will get the love with Far Cry.

WeAreLegion1560d ago

I'm in the same boat. Bayonetta 2 and Smash for me this year though. There's just nothing right now.

N4g_null1560d ago

I really hope destiny doesn't suck game play wise. I was liking Titan fall but it just did not click and watch dogs was just boring.

It's hyrule, Bayo 1 and 2 then smash while I beat a huge back log of xenoblade up to pikman and w101 along with donkey kong.

frezhblunts1560d ago (Edited 1560d ago )

Is that a joke? With NHL 15 coming out? If you want to play realistic sports just go outside! or in your case a ice rink? Destiny I will be getting but on my wii u I am enjoying Armillo, old school gameboy advance games,I will be getting hyrule warriors and bayonetta before smash so there is plenty. The only thing I am using my ps4 now is minecraft until destiny.

Mykky1560d ago

"Is that a joke? With NHL 15 coming out? If you want to play realistic sports just go outside!" Do you really think you can compare the experiences of playing sport outsides to playing it on a gaming console? That is a joke.

Just because someone prefer other games than yourself on a other platform doesn't mean you have to get all buthurt.
