The Legend of Zelda is no showing E3? Whats going on?
lol the wii U is hurting nintendo. And they're stuck in the 1990s
The 1990s is a nice place to be suck. You know games use to work when you bought them and Internet play was free. You are so right it's like 1990 with HD graphics I'm loving it. Oh and xenoblade rocks man. Tell all of your skinny pant friends!
You meant blowing on catridges, paying for expensive cartridges, and playing split screen was the pinnacle of the 90s. Games work, that's a bunch of overhyped BS. It just wasn't has publicized. Chances are that you and your few friends weren't able to find game breaking glitches. Stop being a relic and get with the times!
Internet play was free? There was no internet in the early 1990s.
Dude the snes was launched then.... no one blew on carts after that. Sony had crazy ken and the psn was just a glimmer. The neo geos was bad ass. Pc games had freeware! The arcades we meet in public and you got beat face to face. It was great. I wish you could have seen it all. It kept punks to a minimum. You know what else was great the Internet wasn't as wide spread and trolls like you didn't exist. What times are there to get with? The currently released games on the HD twins suck. Online is still the best On pc and it's still free? Maybe you just need to stop sucking. Oh and the wiiu online is still free and it works. If you want to believe it sucks then isn't that what DDena is for. Plus xenoblade rocks and you know it. Also I'm sure I've found more game breaking glitches than you mike. I mean come on you don't really play video games and I've been making glitch free games for a while. What video games do you play mike? I just see you trolling something you don't like. You do realize this site isn't THE video game right? @colonelRex oh the Internet was out then. You couldn't use it but it was being used and it did exsist, just not officially.
I don't see Nintendo being stuck in the 90's--kind of an odd comment. But to the topic, I was going to buy a Wii U this year because of the new Zelda; it's my most anticipated game of this generation. But now that it's delayed I am going to wait. I like the Wii U, but it just doesn't have enough games that interest me to justify a purchase. A lot of people are enjoying it, and that's great, but outside of Mario 3d Land, Pikmin 3, Bayonetta, & Mario Kart, I'm not interested in much more. I only have so much time to play games, and between my PC (own 200+ games), 3DS, Vita, & yup my PS3, I just can't yet justify getting a new system. Besides, by the time my PS3 becomes obsolete, the next logical step seems to get a PS4--and I get remote play on top of that. I love me some Nintendo, but the lack of a diverse library of 3rd party games has been an issue for awhile, and it's not looking to change anytime soon. Here's hoping Nintendo surprises me at E3.
Nope, got loads to keep me occupied in the mean time. Can't wait for star Fox and devils third
and Splatoon, and Mario Maker, and Yoshis Wooly World, and Xenoblade Chronicles X, and Legend of Kay HD, and Rhodea Sky Soldier, and more N64 games on VC..... I agree with you man. I am pretty surs I will be busy because I am sure there is even more than that coming that I just cant remember right now.
If anything, it'll allow the other titles to shine better~ Besides, there's so many fanboys at there, it's not like even an amazing game like Legend of Zelda will convince anyone to pick up a Wii U. People are worse this gen than they were last gen. People care more about their brands and discrediting others' than actually playing damn good video games.
Pretty much this.
I disagree. Zelda was Nintendos 2015. All the hype for the Wii U this year was because of Zelda. Yes theres other titles coming (XCX, Splatoon, maybe Starfox) but Zelda was the big one. I was going to get a Wii U this year to play Zelda, now I wont be buying one. Im sure the other games will be good (especially XCX) but with the lack of third party support AND the lack of a huge exclusive this year, I really dont see reason to buy one. This move will absolutely hurt Nintendo imo
I couldn't agree more. And you and I are not hating Nintendo despite the disagrees we are bound to get. You and I want the new Zelda this year. It's totally reasonable to wait to buy the system until it releases. It's not like there aren't other games to play until then. The new Zelda is one of if not my most anticipated games of all time. An open world-sandbox Zelda is a dream come true. 2015 has taken a big hit in my opinion, unless Nintendo surprises us at E3.
Yes and No- They need more titles to fill the void of big 3rd Party Support. But if you have a WiiU just to play Quality Nintendo titles... NO. In fact, Xenoblade Chron.'s Over 300 Hrs of Gameplay and the reported deep options of Splatoon and Devil's 3rd are enough to keep us going. Since the WiiU is mostly about Nintendo at this point. Releasing to many of their Big Name Franchises in a year can be self-defeating.
which do want? Zelda to overshadow new games and smaller IP this year or release next year with Illusory Revelation Fire Emblem Possible Pokken Fighters Animal Crossing Metroid F-Zero Retro's new game Next Level Game's new game and unannounced games
thats sad list, I mean after no Third party support at all except indie
That's a decent number of exclusives. I wouldn't consider that sad. Lack of third party is a huge blow for the Wii U, no doubt about that, but lack of worthwhile exclusives would be even worse for a console IMO. The Wii U doesn't have this problem. I wish I can say the same for ___________ _.
they will be only if Nintendo is collaborating. As that the only reason third party developed on Wii U unless it a Wii ported game.
I would rather have Zelda U than ALL of those games tbh..
Animal Crossing, Metroid and F-Zero? Provide source or it's nothing but speculation.
Splatoon, Xenoblade CX, and StarFox say hello! I was upset at first with the delay but in the end I'd rather have a great game that reaches it's potential and hype then a half made game that is broken. Splatoon is going to be loads of fun. Star Fox....we have yet to see, Xenoblade looks mind blowing with it's environments, and then there is also Mario Maker that will be a ton of fun (can't wait for the impossible troll levels), plus whatever else they have to announce at E3. I don't expect SMT X FE this year (possibly Devil's Third if it hasn't been canceled) and then Retro's mystery game has to be revealed maybe release for this year. Haters can hate but WiiU is a fantastic system and it's a shame it's as under appreciated as it is. Between my Ps4 and my WiiU I have a hard time figuring out which one I want to play on a particular day.
There's absolutely NO WAY that Starfox will be releasing this year, considering we have barely seen anything from that game yet. Zelda dropping from 2015 is a big loss to the WiiU. cause that's a system-seller, but I have a feeling they might push it to Nintendo's next console, kinda like what they did with Twilight princess. That basically just leaves the excellent Xenoblade X, but we'll have to see if that comes with the original Japanese voices, and if they'll change more content to 'suit a western audience', which would mean I'd lose all interest, cause I don't like butchered games. Just keep it exactly the same way as the Japanese release. That's part of it's charm.
Don't forget the faces in Xenoblade X. The horrible, horrible faces. Won't somebody PLEASE think of the children?!?!?11?!
Yeah, I don't think anyone likes the faces. No idea what went wrong there, considering Xenoblade on Wii looked fine.
Zelda's absence always hurts. She needs saving. A hot sexy princess... Link throws Zelda down on the pile of straw, grasping the handle of his large sword... wait... where is this going?
rule34 here we go again
It might not hurt but it certainly won't help. They do have a few things in the mix still but Zelda is pretty much their "Keanu Reeves" at this point as South Park would put it.
At this point I don't think any game will save the WiiU. Zelda titles on consoles have had a downward trend in sales, WiiU already has Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and a 3D Mario game, all of which were the Wii's best franchises. There is nothing about having a touchscreen that is revolutionary. Every device has it now. WiiU's days were numbered from the start.
You do realize the Wii U is actually doing pretty well? http://www.examiner.com/art... As long as they have a strong E3, this trend will continue.
The wii u is the Dreamcast again.
Dreamcast was technically the most powerful, at least till Xbox was released, and it had a large library of must-play games, both 1st and 3rd party. Sega really messed it all up in the marketing department. WiiU has some great games, but they don't seem to ever come down in price, and for many gamers that means it's not worth investing in (yet). Zelda & Xenoblade would have been big reasons FOR ME to buy the system this year, but Zelda has been pushed, and we still don't know what will be changed/missing with the western release of Xenoblade, so I'll just wait and see. If it's dub-only, I'll pass. If it's cut/censored, or altered too much in terms of story/names/music/whatever, I'll pass. And if I pass on Xenoblade, I'll pass on WiiU, at least until it"s in the bargain bin, together with it's games.
I respect the Nintendo faithful as I grew up playing NES and the SNES is still my favorite game console of the last 35 years. As a console specific gamer I just can't understand the reasoning of robbing yourself of all the great Multiplatform games like the Witcher 3 Mortal Kombat and Arkham Knight just to Show your support for Nintendo. Just give in and get a PS4 already, or a Xbox One if you really like Halo.
Being Faithful has nothing to do with it really. If you bought a ps4 or xbox one over a wii u, then you would be robbing yourself of experiences like Mario 3d World, Smash Bros Wii U, Mario Kart 8, DK Tropical Freeze, Bayonetta 2, Xenoblade Chronicles X and so on.
They may have another surprising Zelda for us, an early announcement for Twilight Princess 3DS, perhaps.
