So, who is getting Borderlands 2 on PC on release?


Not until it's $10 on steam. I haven't even been following any of the borderlands 2 info. I enjoyed the original enough on the 360, but it didn't seem like anything too special.

You also get a ton of Joel Alts that look rapey with the season pass! You know you want it!

So, I haven't slept yet. I've been playing the shit out of TTT2.

Whelp, Uraizen is buying a Wii U...

Nintendo announced Bayonetta is getting a sequel on Wii U, and it will be exclusive to the console. Nintendo revealed Bayonetta 2 in its Wii U presentation this afternoon, with the game being developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo. The news is surprising, given the 2010 hack-and-slash released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

We'll keep you updated on Bayonetta 2 info as it comes.

WiiU launches in NA on 11/18 for 299.99/349.99 (white 8gb/black 32gb).

Apparently the black one also comes with a sensor bar, gamepad stand, Nintendoland, and a "Nintendo Network Premium Subscription", whatever the hell that is.

Still not buying one. Maybe 5 years down the line for $149.99 and I'll pick up Bayonetta 2 for $10.

I bet it won't even be a true sequel. I find it hard to believe Platinum games would release the sequel to one console.

Its gonna be like NG sigma hopefully...

Thinking about how *bad* the performance of the Bayonetta games on consoles was, maybe the Nintendo console has just enough juice to maintain 60fps and Platinum said "no, we're not going to compromise, we're not going to do bad ports [see: Sega being forced to port Bayonetta to PS3]." Or maybe Nintendo threw a ton of money at them because Kamiya was working on that other WiiU exclusive game in an effort to sway hardcore gamers to the platform (see bringing Ninja Gaiden 3 Sigma to the WiiU, Black Ops 2, etc.)

Definitely no Wii U for me. If I get a next gen console I'll pick between the Sony and MS offerings after the first price drop based on game library.

I wonder if that was part of the problem with getting a Bayonetta 2... I think I once saw something saying Bayonetta 2 was far off or unlikely because the first game's sales weren't spectacular. But if Kamiya was working on Project P-1000 or whatever with Nintendo and they said "hey, we'll publish Bayonetta 2 if you want to make it for Wii U only. ;)"... yeah, he might have been like "MY DREAM! YES! LET'S DO IT."

Published by Nintendo probably means we won't ever see a Bayonetta 2 Sigma or Bayonetta 2 PC, I'm guessing.

However if Project Dolphin is doing all sorts of awesome Wii emulation, I wonder how long before PCs and the development community come up with WiiU emulation...

Yeah, I don't have to worry about buying one anytime soon... looking at the bold titles at least and considering I've already played NG3 and would only give it a second shot because action-king uraizen said he thinks it would be worth checking out. ZombiU, NSMBWu, and Rayman (as much as I loved Origins) aren't worth a $350 price tag and being a console beta tester.


I also did some googling to find out what Nintendo Network Premium Subscription was and found this:

Nintendo Network Premium is included with the purchase of the black Wii U Premium bundle that comes with the more expensive 32GB console. It is currently priced at 31,500 yen ($405) and comes with the black Wii U, a Wii U gamepad charging dock and stand, a Wii U console stand.

Nintendo initially said that the Nintendo Network online service would be free but couldn't guarantee that it would always be that way. It sounds initially like they are going with something similar to Playstation Plus in the form of Nintendo Network Premium but it's actually more of a rewards program.

Games purchased online via Nintendo Network Premium gives back 10% of the purchase price in Premium points that can then be exchanged in increments of 500 for Nintendo Points that can then be used to purchase other games and DLC.

The service will only be offered through 2014 but it is currently unknown if those that purchase the white Basic Wii U package will be able to buy a Nintendo Network Premium subscription.

If Rayman, Pikmin, and The Wonderful 101 stay on the launch window list, I'll probably try to get a Wii U on or around launch. Also somewhat interested in Monster Hunter since I didn't play the Wii one.

They put a really nice anticipated launch (or 6 months thereafter) list together. They even managed to fit Funky Barn and Rapala Bass Fishing in there. Look out, world.

The thing is, you really have to cool your jets on this. You might be able to get Funky Barn in November. You may have to wait until March. Then again, it may not be released at all.

You've just got to buy that WIIU at launch, cross your fingers, and hope for the best.

No, you watch TVii with it! They even got movie reviews onto the tablet.

It's also compatible with almost all of your old Wii games, so you can play through those old games again using the old controllers while you wait for the games that use the new controller.

(I hear in ZombiU, you can use the tablet screen to look through your inventory. It was a beta build, though, no idea if that's fully supported. Or if ZombiU will be released in the expanding launch window. Regardless, it's exciting!)

If I hadn't left out Funky Barn it would be easier to tell that I am DEAD SERIOUS.

If and when Funky Barn drops in that probable launch window, there's a chance that the WIIU might surprise a lot of people who are considering buying a WIIU but not certain about it. Or so Reggie tells me...

In theory, it's pretty much the same game that's coming out on 3DS, since they're trying to do "transfarring" between 3DS and WiiU saves. So in theory, you could just buy it for your 3DS and wait for something on the console that you *really* want. 8-)

I've found 3 really fucking annoying things in TTT2 online:
(1) Characters dressed the same -- blue combat beret lars and jin look similar enough I wasn't sure which one I was fighting. Makes it real fucking hard to block.
(2) Teams comprised of Eddy x 2.
(3) Teams comprised of Hwoarang x2.
