MY WII IS MY LEAST PLAYED CONSOLE EVER

SO .. NO

ALTHOUGH ZOMBIE U LOOKS INTERESTING. MAINLY AS I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE IDEA WAS GOOD! ALWAYS WANTED A GAME WHERE YOU WERE JUST A NORMAL BLOKE MAKING IT THROUGH THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE.


Hasn't Dead Island done that already?



Not really ... on Zombie U you have one shot as a random character and you try to escape. That's sounds scary as hell. If you die you restart as another new character. That put's the fear into the game!

Dead Islands has an RPG set up ... you can grind your way to success eventually...

I wouldn't like to think how many hours of action my Wii has seen. Mario Kart alone would be a scary one.

Whats the overall consensus on the Wii U then?

Everytime I see one online or in a shop I am slightly tempted but there aren't any games that seal the deal for me at the minute.

A Zelda or Metroid game would do it for me...

Well Ive had my Wii U for about four weeks now and Im really enjoying it, but then I enjoyed the Wii, despite everyone claiming there were no games for it, which is funny because I had quite a lot and virtually none of them were mini game collections.

The pad looks bulky but is surprisingly comfortable in your hands. The only games Ive got so far are Nintendoland, Sonic Racing, Super Mario U, and Trine 2.

Nintendoland is a bit of mixed bag, but is really just a way of showing what the pad can do, and some of it works really well, and other bits not so great

Sonic Racing is great fun, particularly if you are a fan of SEGA and its history of games

Super Mario, is well, Super Mario, just a lot shinier, but still great fun and very frustrating in equal measure

Trine 2 is simply gorgeous. Coming from the SD Wii, to the HD fairytale graphics of Trine is a revelation. Its a great fun puzzle / platformer, that continues to stun with its amazing artwork.

Me and my mate both played the Zombie U demo, but we've decided not to purchase it as it creeped both of us out too much!

My mates got Black Ops and he is really enjoying playing that online.

The Miiverse is a great place to meet and chat with other players. I like that fact that if you get stuck, you can just pause the game and go and post a help message with a picture of the bit you are stuck on and others will hopefully leave notes on how to proceed.

Overall Im very pleased with my purchase, and am looking forward to Aliens: Colonial Marines, Rayman Legends, and Lego City in the next few months

My brother splashed out on one of these last weekend, went round his the other night to have a play for a couple of hours.

Random thoughts off the top of my head are:

1. It's a lot bigger than I thought. Small and sleek looking from the front but it's long, quite long.

2. The dashboard/OS is functional enough but it's slow, launching in and out of various apps like Lovefilm and the Internet Browser seems to take a while.

3. Graphically the better ports like Assassin's Creed III and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed look every inch the equal to their 360/PS3 counterparts. Black Ops II looks fairly decent also, albeit with a slightly iffy framerate here and there. Didn't get a chance to play Zombie U unfortunately, it hadn't arrived yet.

4. The gamepad range is good and bad depending on the surroundings, my brother can barely get out to the landing with it from his room before it drops out, but it works fine immediately beneath his room in the lounge, presumably because wooden floors are less problematic than concrete walls.

5. Which brings me nicely to the best thing about the console, streaming games to that pad. It's always sounded like a neat idea in practice, but it's instantly more awesome than you anticipate. It's a major bonus, and a geunine novelty being able to play full-fat games in the palm of your hand. I'm not sure I'd want it with the new Xbox or Playstation, simply because I'd rather see the money spent under the hood of the actual console, but as an add-on peripheral for those willing to pay for the luxury, I think there's something there.

Its a shame to see this thread and sales of the Wii U not doing so well.

After my initial disappointment of the consoles release i have to say i'm really tempted to get one. Yes i know its not going to get many games made by third parties, in much the same way the last 3 Nintendo consoles haven't. But i'm a sucker for Nintendo's games and i really want to play New Super Mario Bros U.

Also after the disappointment that was the PS4 launch, i have a strong feeling that both Sony and Microsoft's next consoles are going to be a bit dull. Yes they will up the graphics and the online play but lets be honest aren't we all a bit sick of "Look how real it looks" and "10 different online play modes". After watching Wreck It Ralph it reminded me what i actually like about computer games, its been taken out of reality and playing something fun, that's why i have always loved Nintendo.

So now the dust has settled a little on the Wii U how are people finding it? What are the best games? What games are coming out that look good? And when do you think there will be a price drop for the console? Also which version is better value, the Premium or the Basic?

If anyone is interested in a Wii U there is a cracking deal to be had at HMV. Premium 32gb bundle with NintendoLand and ZombiU for 199. http://bit.ly/Yt2gQe

The console has its negatives, but as a companion to another console, and if you go into it knowing that you'll probably just be picking up the main exclusives and the odd other game here and there. The GamePad while looking a bit cheap is such a cool part of the setup.
