Original Gamer: "Hope you're not hoping for a lot of Wii games to play this year because there's not much to wait for. Make sure to ask Santa for a better system this year."
pfft donkey kong, kirby, epic mickey, and while i dislike the game golden eye say other wise
you can add rabbids in time to that and sonic colors if that's your thing (not mine)
after reading this informative article I have decided to sell my Wii.
Donkey kong, kirby and raving rabbids. That sounds familiar, wonder why? haven't these games been released at least 20 times before?
You should know by now that Nintendo die-hards love to buy the same thing over and over again.
This year's holiday lineup is a big part of the reason I just purchased a Wii.
From all these only Sonic Colours and Kirby really interest me. Even if i wanted all of them it's still an poor line-up. Only 5 games are even remotely worth playing.
only game im looking forward to on wii is Epic Mickey that's it.
I agree Epic Mickey is pretty much the only title I will be buying for Wii. I wish they would make it for the PS3 as well so I can get rid of the dust magnet they call a Wii. I have gotten a game for that thing in a long time.
the only game i have for my wii is Mario galaxy and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Would you mind explaining all the disagrees?
imo nintendo has the best line up with Epic Mickey, Goldeneye, Donkey Kong, and Wii Party. Metroid other M just came out the end of August too. Nintendo is just catering to their audience which is a mix of casuals and the nintendo hardcore. Sony has GT5, multiplats, and move titles. MS has Fable III, multiplats, and kinnect titles.
Wii line-up is the BEST actually. I laugh at this article and anyone who believes it. I love my Wii most. And guess what WON E3's Game Of Show from Gamespot? Kirby. Guess what won best graphics from Gamespot? Kirby. GO CRY..lol. You like fun? Buy a Wii. This article is just mad Nintendo has the best holiday offering they have ever had coupled with the best reviewed game this year. :)
Kirby's Epic Yarn looks awesome. The textures are incredible and the gameplay looks just plain fun. The early "previews" that I have read seem to suggest that it is going to score very high with critics, but only time will tell on that one.
I'm with Theonik as far as interest, but I wouldn't mind having a play with Donkey Kong and Mickey. ^_^
what really sucks is that the japanese have a stronger line up than the US. i mean hell the mario 25th anniversary thing is the lead game going into the holiday season there even a mario theme Wii coming out over there that i highly doubt will come over here
Correction: Wii is horrible. Owned.
I bet you walk into a room full of people and randomly claim you are their king. Am I right or am I right?
coolection ,gt5 and move games exclusive from sony as well what has 360 got now nothing until gears of war 3 arrives everything is multi
When was the last time ps3 had a major game release? God of War 3? Gees, that was eons ago. X360 has at least had a big release in recent memory. . . Remember Reach? Cos almost 5 million people did
The next Reach will be multiformat under another title and also appear on PS3 since Bungie went multi. Fable can also be gotten on PC later this year. That just leaves Gears of War 3 which won't appear untill end 2011. I respect the Xbox360 console but for exclusives PS3 is the obvious choice.
Somehow I have a feeling Bungie will go to a completely new genre. It seems they didn't want to do FPS anymore.
The article doesn't sound serious, but I've seen people be this stupid before, so I can't say for sure if it's serious or just flamebait. O.o I mean, it's obviously flamebait, but the article has got to be satirical...right?
The writer even says that the Wii has QUALITY titles coming like Donkey Kong, Kirby, and Mickey etc. But he says it's only "3" games. First of all, that is $150 worth. Second, most people get around 3 games anyway. Third, Nintendo has the NPD top 20 on lockdown with Super Mario Galaxy 2 and NSMBW any month of the year. I have around 7 games to buy on Wii this holiday and a couple more on DS. Far outnumbering any other console. Not to mention 2011 has yet another STELLAR line-up coming. :)
Yeah, how rich are you people that you need 20+ games to buy over the holidays? I'm lucky if I get one home console game at Christmas. This is fine for me. If too many come out at once, they fall through the cracks and I never buy them. Also, this article isn't news. Can we please stop with pure opinion pieces, especially if it's "_____ sucks" or "_____ is horrible"? There ARE mature people on here who would like to know what's going on in the industry without fanboys putting their edgy "spin" on things.
I personally cant believe CONTRA is not out yet on disc. all those Snes portfolio nintendo has and none of them is release yet??? WTF nintendo what are you waiting for?? cant believe another dev has a copy kat copy of contra: "Hard Corp up Rising" is coming out beating nintendo with Contra. I wanna buy the WII but no old school games out yet.
"HARD CORP: UP RISING" What? How is this related to Nintendo xD Sega had Contra:hardcorps! "ant believe another dev has a copy kat copy of contra: "Hard Corp up Rising" " What? Contra belongs to Konami .
what u said made no damn sense wow........................ XD they are plenty of classic games i dislike the name old school sounds stupid and ghetto and they have classic contra on v.c and w.w if I'm not mistaken
Seriously, stop smoking dat "HD" smoke, it seems to rot the brains...
lol wii line-up is far from horrible, ps3 line-up is good too, we can't really complain we have just had loads of move games and soon to come time crisis, gt5, castlevania, enslaved, cod:bo, vanquish it's a shame lbp2 got delayed:-( as for sales ps3>wii in media create again, now lets all stop fighting
whoever wrote this has been sleeping in a cave the last year.
He is out of touch with reality (and real gaming IMO but..lol). He can go play COD (which is on Wii too but I'm sure he is only playing that all christmas...LMAO). :)
Maybe it stinks in the eyes of the core gamer... But Nintendo will also once again be laughing all the way to the bank with games like Kirby Epic Yarn, Donkey Kong, Goldeneye, Epic Mickey, Micheal Jackson The Experience (Lets be real here... the name alone will make Ubisoft a ton of $$$ and its only coming to Wii in 2010.PS3/Xbox 360 version got delayed), Just Dance 2 (if the first game can sell millions you know this one will), etc... And it may surprise you but Black Ops will also sell well for Wii (both WAW & Reflex sold over a million units worldwide)... So either way if you think the Wii Lineup stinks Nintendo will still be laughing all the way to the bank this Holiday...
Because that's what matters - how much money Nintendo makes. How us gamers are treated doesn't matter right? Heck, throw out another hannah Montana game, maybe even a justin bieber one while they're at it. True gamers LOOOOOVE the shovelware. Naat.
In the case of DK, Kirby, and Goldeneye, people buy them because they want them. These are good, high-quality franchises. Yes, they've been around for a long time, but only because people still want them around. They're not cash-ins like you're saying, and CERTAINLY not shovelware.
GCNSeanFoster: "Maybe it stinks in the eyes of the core gamer" THIS is what I'm getting at. One of your own wii fanboys have said this, you really don't think everyone else thinks this too?
epic mickey lol michael jackson the experience...i have a life long love for nintendo but these aren't games for people who love video games these are games for very very young kids and you know it. Now DK,Goldeneye,xenoblade and the conduit 2 are games that get gamers going. My wife likes just dance btw. Nintendos holiday this year is way better then last but by know means are gamers rushing out to resevre michael jackson or epic mickey. Wanted to add for god sakes let retro make the next metroid nintendo... project m isn't bad bad but its not all that great ether.
its called Other M, noob and epic Mickey is no more kiddy than kingdom hearts. I guess you're going to like you never liked that huh? typical
no i didn't like kingdom hearts and i love rpgs and yes mickeymouse is kiddy. I made comments in the past about kingdom hearts. Do you still have disney blankets on your bed AW? Its ok mickey isn't all bad.
nope, but I do have a disney glass i've had for 3 years! And though you're trying to make me sound like a child, ask yourself this: Aren't all 3 consoles sold at Toys R Us? So guess what you're doing Mr.Manly mature Hardcore gamer? You're playing with a Toy! Its a shame though, You're trying so hard to look cool and be Hardcore that you're missing out on one of the greatest RPGs of our time: Kingdom Hearts! I assume you also missed out on Zack and Wiki, anything Kirby, probably Sly cooper, and maybe even Ratchet and clank.
I wouldnt say horrible - the lineup looks ok with some potential. Wii Exclusives Kirby - looks interesting Goldeneye - could be good, prefer conduit 2, but that was delayed DK - will be solid as usual Epic Mikey - very interested in this one Multi-plats Force Unleashed 2 COD Black Ops Hot Pursuit Jam (No online)
Sonic Colors Epic Mickey Kirby's Epic yarn DKC Returns Goldeneye 007 and i have yet to get: Muramasa NMH Desperate struggle RE Darkside Chronicles Cursed Mountain Monster Hunter Tri (Have to rebuy it, gave it to nephew as a graduation gift) Secret Files Tunguska and a lot of others I want. Why does everyone thing Christmas games, are only those released OCt, Nov, and Dec?????
I never knew this. Thought the only game people had for the Wii was Wii sports. LOL @ Wii..and WTF is this in the PS3 news section???????????????/
So you actually give in to your ignorance yet you "LOL @ WII"...Sorry but no one computes.
the line up this holiday is pretty bad lol XD g2 admit that but ders games that i don't own like arc rise and stuff so ders still plenty to get i am getting Kirby and not sure bout donkey kong maybe later on oh and ps3 don't have much ether :/ ima get naruto dat it lol
lol wow oh wow XD it was a oponion and a fact ps3 dont got m,any games none of the 3 do this holiday????? ha ders even a new artical about ps3 lack of exsclusives to bakc me up
hopefully at least that will come out or nintendo may have their worst fiscal holiday ever.
Sonic Colors Epic Mickey Kirby's Epic yarn Donkey Kong Country Returns Goldeneye 007 the wii has a great line up this holiday season. this guy says, well these games aren't out yet so we don't know if they suck or not. lame.
News For Trolls/fanboys..this site shouldn't be called news for gamers because there a vary few gamers here,its all fanboy Bull shit. The wii has lots of grate up coming games for the holiday season,only a fanboy would tell you any differently.like i said news for trolls,all they care about is letting others know how there console is better then yours and try to "win" a war..that's not even a real war..yeah have fun with that,while i play games you can fight over consoles :)
The holiday line-up is fine. Good first-party support (even including a brand new IP, but since people around here only pretend to care about those, we have to ignore it), a handful of solid third-party efforts, and if circumstances permit some really nice Wiiware entries. 2011's line-up is where people should be worried.
I really didn't look at the holiday line up too much but this via article full of flame bait pretty much says there isn't much to do on the hd consoles. It's actualy sort of sad. I mean move and kinect are suppose to be the things that keep hd consoles going but here we are with the most anticlimactic line-up since the ps3 was waiting on games. I guess this is the year gamers go and pick up a wii and 3rd afterwards since the psp is dead now xbox style and reach already came out for the 360 and seriously gt5 is all your gonna play with some mini motion games? It's really too bad you guys arn't gamers. Oh well.
I wish I could say that much for the 360.
I guess his tastes are different from mine. My list for this fall: Kirby's Epic Yarn Sonic Colors Games I would get if I could: Donkey Kong Country Returns(sure,why not) I'll rent Epic Mickey. It could be good, so hey. ^_^
Lets see. The Wii's holiday line up includes: NBA Jam Kirby's Epic Yarn Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 Call of Duty: Black Ops FlingSmash Sonic Colors Golden Eye 007 Ghost Recon: Future Soldier Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Donkey Kong Country Returns Driver: San Fransisco Epic Mickey I don't see why you think their line up is horrible. And to everyone above saying, "people love buying the same thing over and over again." You are just plain ignorant, just because the characters and backdrop are the same doesn't mean its the same game. Also, even if you honestly believe that, look at the Halo series, Killzone series, Grand Theft Auto series, Street Fighter series, ect. Are all these games rehashed games that are the same? Maybe, maybe not. I say no, each game brings new and exciting things to the table each time they make a new one. Just because the name and setting is the same doesn't mean its the same thing as everyone before it.
