I doubt I’ll be able to pick up a Wii-U right away but I do have planned on purchasing the console someday. Until then, here are some launch titles I’m quite intrigued to try out.
Here’s my message to all the internet gaming community crybabies who are whining about this game being a Wii-U exclusive, GET OVER IT! It’s the oldest console marketing strategy in the book: Get a game many people want to buy and convince them to get the exclusive console it’s on. Threatening Nintendo and planning on committing fake suicide. What a bunch of losers. Be thankful this sequel which was initially cancelled, exists!
Rayman Origins is one of the best platformers I’ve played this year (I didn’t buy it at launch) so a sequel is a MUST PLAY for me. The gimmick looks okay. I won’t judge it solely from a video. I’ll play it myself THEN decide whether it sucks or not.
New Super Mario Bros U
I REALLY didn’t want to bash New Super Mario Bros 2 but in the end, I’ll admit that it’s kinda underwhelming because it feels incredibly similar to New Super Mario Bros Wii. U on the other hand looks like a more interesting game based on this demo vid. Too bad the 3rd and 4th characters are still those darn Toads. They could have at least made a different 4th character. Oh well, at least you can play as your Mii.
Tekken Tag 2 Wii U Edition looks really neat but I think I’ll pick up the PS3 version instead since I REALLY am impatient when it comes to certain fighting games. Still, I’ll rent the Wii-U version sometime.
The creators of the super awesome Wii exclusive JRPG, Xenoblade Chronicles are working on another RPG for the Wii-U and I love me some JRPGs.
Epic Mickey 2 and Sonic All-Star Racing Transformed will also be available on PS3 so I won’t need to buy the Wii-U versions.
Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate. Never got into the MH franchise but there’s a new one coming for those who are interested.
