The Wii U list is not accurate. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Feb21st....
There are others too, but I don't feel like looking for the links.

sitharrefus2561d ago

Ya the Wii u list should also include the Eshop titles coming soon, and they forgot the Walking Dead, Monster Hunter, Pandoras Tower should be there since the Wii u can play Wii games..

crazy_man2561d ago

No Feb 21 is when they are releasing the demo.

March 19 is the launch.

Sorry my bad...ooops...:)

JScotty282561d ago

I didn't post the entire list. At least half of it are titles most gamers don't care about. In the article it was never stated this was the entire list, just games worth mentioning. I do agree Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate was an omission. I've included it now. Thanks for the heads up.

U have missed way too many games very un professional ?

"at least half of it are titles gamers don't care about"

Its statements like these that make me not want to visit your site now, honestly.

If you took the three seconds needed to post some of the niche games that a lot of people who come here care about we might have a reason to read your work. Etrian Odyssey 4 has had a lot of buzz from the target audience on n4g, and to say that its "not worth mentioning" hurts your cause.

JScotty282561d ago

Honestly, I appreciate that. I'm new to writing about the games industry and welcome all the constructive criticism I can handle. Even though I highlighted all the games I thought were the most mainstream, I absolutely should have included the entire list. We all learn from our mistakes, right?

JScotty282560d ago

Oh, and I see you took "most" out of my quote: "At least half of it are titles most gamers don't care about." It's a key word, very sneaky of you.

klecser2560d ago

And I do intend to be constructive, not mean.

I want good game writers to succeed. The biggest turn off to me is when game writers write to too specific of an audience. This usually manifests itself as personal opinions being projected unto other gamers. Its great that you have personal opinions. But it also doesn't help when you evaluate a game on your personal opinions only. Jim Sterling is a good example of an extreme of how not to do it. The only opinion that matters to Jim Sterling is Jim Sterling's opinion. He has zero empathy for other gamers.

Develop that empathy in your own writing. Acknowledge that just because you don't like something it doesn't mean that others won't like this. A good writing style to develop is leading paragraphs with: "Some gamers will appreciate this feature for X reasons, and many won't" as opposed to: "This feature is terrible." That last sentence is pervasive in game writing. I think part of the reason is that we are in a culture right now in which "anyone" connected to the internet can be a game writer, regardless of literary training. And it shows.

Be a good game writer JScotty. Please. ;)

I have sad news for Wii U owners regarding Aliens Colonials Marines. It is being ported by an outside source Demiurge Studios. Gearbox isn't even developing it so you can most likely say goodbye to all those visual improvements that Randy Pitchford was so excited to talk about. It will probably end up a sloppy port with a worse framerate and zero visual improvements, also I predict that it won't be out until late March at the earliest.
I'm not trolling I'm just trying to inform the N4G community and I sincerely hope that Demiurge Studios does a great job and it ends up being the best version, I just have my doubts.

It could still be the definitive version, Im just not getting my hopes up so I'm not overly dissapointed.

ElectricKaibutsu2561d ago

Your link didn't work for me, but I found it through Google. You got a lot of disagrees but I personally appreciate the heads up.

PopRocks3592561d ago

Yeah, I want a source as well. Or is this just more BS misinformation?

hduce2561d ago

I hate to admit it but herbs is correct. If you go to Demiurge Studio's website, they talk about developing the Wii U version of the game. That doesn't mean its going to be an inferior port but I hope Demiurge has had enough time with the newest development kit and not try to port the game as if the Wii U was an xbox360/ps3.

1upgamer992561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

I call BS....Whenever I post something that is news like that I almost always give a link, and since I just Googled your claims I call BS, as NOTHING says that at all in terms of sloppy port and framerate issues , in fact they say the opposite ...So Link Please? I am not going to post all of the Positive links about Alien, on Wii U. I've done it like 10 times already.

animegamingnerd2561d ago

too many 3DS games in march

ElectricKaibutsu2561d ago

Too many games is the kind of problem you want to have :)

crazy_man2561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

I agree...


Fire Emblem being my fav tho

animegamingnerd2561d ago (Edited 2561d ago )

it doesn't help that i am trying save up my money to get a wii u for my birthday in april and pokemon mystery dungeon and luigi's manson come out just 2 weeks before my birthday

Phil322561d ago

I'm interested in a lot of games, but the Wii U list is not anything that will sell consoles imo. I'd love to be wrong, though.

I'm wanting:
Rayman Legends (the demo was awesome)
LEGO City Undercover
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (Wii U version)
Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates of Infinity
Castlevania: LoS - MoF
