Thumbs Up/Down: Top 5 Most Wanted Wii U Launch Titles | GameBlurb

GameBlurb writes, "The 3DS suffered lackluster sales due to a, ahem, weak launch library…Nintendo cannot look at the shareholders after the Wii U launch with the same results. Here are the top 5 games that might convince me to pony up for the newest console at launch!" (Culture, Dev, Nintendo, Wii U)

I've bought or plan on buying every nintendo console that has come out (don't have a 3ds YET)but for once I think I'm going to have to pass. Maybe it'll be clear to me a few years down the line what the hell this thing is even supposed to be. For now, I just don't get it.

I'm so wary of new Nintendo consoles these days. Got a Wii, hardly used it, got a DS, hardly used it...though Knights in the Nightmare is a good enough game to warrant buying a DS just for that. Hopefully the Wii U brings more than I expect.

You should plan out your purchases. The whole reason I bought a 3DS was because there were games I knew I wanted to play on it (mostly ones that had not yet been released), not necessarily because I knew it was a new Nintendo platform.

You have to look at a game console as an investment. If you are aware it will get strong support, even if you have to wait for it, then it's worth the buy. I adopted the 3DS early on because I knew I'd get Resident Evil and Star Fox. I wound up getting 20 free classic games out of it.

A Zelda title seems likely

At Launch? I doubt it. Skyward Sword only just came out, and the previous one was supposed to be a gamecube title that got pushed onto the Wii. The development cycles for Zelda games seem to be quite long for another one to pop up so soon.

Yeah, Mario Galaxy 3 isn't ever happening... Just look forward to the new thing that they make instead of the old ones that are already great, which you can still enjoy. And Smas Bros remakes don't make sense; two new versions are coming out (probably in 4 years...), and since they aren't exactly epic quests, remakes seem unnecessary. A new Zelda at launch is laughable. Why does this list even exist? The content doesn't match the headline (except for AC3...), in that none of these games are even realistic, let alone coming at launch. Starfox could be real, a racing sim from Nintendo could be real, and Eternal Darkness 2 or an HD remake could appear at or near launch, and this asks for Galaxy 3... Okay.
