You said they only want family friendly games on their systems. Are those considered family friendly?


This. Heck Nintendo is excited about getting Bayonetta 2 as a Wii-U exclusive. I don't see that as family friendly.

correct. im sorry but the 3rd partys on launch are out on other systems already and hardcore gamer would have them on those systems


Yeah agreed, I won't buy games like Call of Duty for Wii-U until I see that the online is viable enough to play on. Not to mention the community will be quite weak for those offerings on day one since not very many systems are out and people already have the game for 360 or PS3.

did you play manhunt 2 for ps2 and wii? both were M rated games but at least handfull of videos that had decent info about the killings in the game was cut out on the wii


Outside of minor interface and control differences the game is identical between the Wii, PS2, and PSP.

The game was censored because the original version of the game was rated AO, a rating that no retailer would sell. Once the game was modified and re-rated at M, retailers would then agree to sell it.

that's the thing that kind of makes me sad is that nintendo seems like they think they don't need to take the money and time to make a legit online service like psn or live.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is an M rated video game full of blood and gore. There's more blood and gore added to the Wii U version, including bringing back dismemberment. It's not less violent than GTA. I think maybe what you meant earlier is that GTA is more adult than NG, what with the hookers and drugs and the such. But it's ludicrous to claim GTA as more violent or say NG is "not bad." It's certainly not "family-friendly."

I dunno if this has been answered, but my in store pickups of 2 Wii U games at gamestop still show as "open", and says I will receive a call when the items are at the store. Can I trust this? Will they actually take the time to call me on release day, or is my order even going to go through?

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I hope the wiiU has a good online service because some future super marios bros games with online multiplayer would be great but I'm only buying the Wii U for first party (primarily Mario) games. My console exclusive gaming is done on my PS3 and I've shifted most of my gaming back to my PC.

...not that anyone cares...

What, you mean like how Mario Kart Wii ran flawlessly and the 3DS has fantastic online? Adding friends is super easy and you can even join a friend's game off the friends list.

What you mean to say is you're basing it off your past ignorance.

Why are there several pages where this Timbo guy is like 80% of the posts? He's dumb as Fuck and basically belligerent. He also thinks writing shuffle instead of shovel is called a typo.


If anything this thread is helpful for fleshing out my ignore list, I find.

Difference is titles like GTA5 are the kind of things that will sell the 3rd party support to people that got fed up with the Wii.



I'm actually fed up with the grand theft series. Not much new...just the same shit with bigger maps and graphics improvements.

Only way I would pick up one is if they did another San Andreas style one.

GTA for PS3 got old ...really quick.


And for people complaining about online ... have you heard of all the PS3 problems ...again...

Target seems to have dropped the ball for online preorders. The system I ordered on November 8th still showed not yet shipped with and estimated delivery date of the 18th with express shipping. However, I was able to order a bundle from them this afternoon and I just got a shipping confirmation and tracking number. I went ahead and canceled the one from the 8th. I'm pretty sure they forgot about the preorders and took those systems and created the bundles. I'm happy I have one on the way, but I wasn't able to get my 5% red card discount on the one that is actually shipping.
