Nintendo’s Project Guard, Project Giant Robot and Star Fox, show off the Wii U’s potential

With the Wii U, Nintendo has an opportunity to be the quirky third combatant in the console war, and nothing shows off this potential more than the company’s in-house developed first-party titles like the "Project" series.

Read it and weep Sony. That's innovation right there.

Wii U is the best there is, best there was & the best there ever will be.

Hush you. Sony innovates in different ways from Nintendo.

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1724d ago

Yeah they do but not the way we play games though

I could't agree more, although most people will call games like this a "gimmick."

While Star Fox looks amazing, Guard and Robot look more like tech demos than "games". With Robot, the reviewer mentions the controls not being too responsive and even the video in the article shows the guy playing the demo staring at the ground and almost falling over... 10 min in does not make it look that impressive at all...

I wouldn't be surprised if the tech demo game play all ends up in Starfox. Project Guard had the Starfox insignia in it and Miyamoto kind of suggested it in an interview.

This is a gigantic scam. These aren't even real games. Miyemoto has lost his touch and has for years.

They were extremely rough tech demos that were made to showcase things that Nintendo can do with the gamepad.

These titles are far from complete.

Theyre set to come out in the first half of 2015, look at Nintendo's updated release schedule

Um, hello...

Pikmin 3 released less than a year ago, and was one of the best games of 2013, across ALL consoles.

That's like looking at Beethoven or Edison or Franklin and finding one of their less successful pieces or experiments, then using that as proof that they lost their touch for years, and saying it less than a year after the lightbulb was invented.

Brilliant minds, if you look at them historically, only produce exceptional results periodically. It's just that in retrospect, people only remember the memorable, so it seems like they were on fire their entire careers. Pikmin 3 is undeniable proof that Miamoto still has it. The game was and is phenomenal.

Star Fox is on the way. Reserve judgement until release. But even if it sucks, that doesn't mean Miamoto can't turn around and surprise everyone with another fabulous game.

all 3 were not meant to be games per'se. they were meant to motivate and get these developers off their @ss and create games. sometimes you have to show people what or why they need something and challenge them to make whats already available better.

Dunban671723d ago

Didn t he say he may incorporate Project Guard and Project Robot into the Star Fox game?

Either way I don t see how any of these games could come out In the 1st half of 2015- Myamoto himself said they we're looking for a developer for Star fox and that he HOPED it could be released in a year

For the other 2 to go from tech demos to games In 6 to 12 months from e3 sounds like they would be rushed of they did- I doubt any of those games will Coe close to releas in 1st half 2015

Myemoto??? U ve lost your touch too

Mikito111724d ago

No.. Also, learn to spell please

Concertoine1724d ago

What i found very unusual was that Project Guard and Robot were listed as stand alone titles slated for release early next year. I thought they were just pieces of the new star fox, i honestly can't picture either of them being stand alone releases.

jholden32491724d ago (Edited 1724d ago )

They're probably listing them now to make the schedule seem more filled out.

But if they do by chance release separately, they'll probably be along the lines of Dr Luigi or Pushmo World. Little $10 eShop games available for download, know what I mean?

It's not like they're gonna package Project Guard as a physical retail release or anything. That's just common sense.
