I own the games out of this sale that I want... but I would like to add that this is such an underrated system. I bought a 320$ bundle of the deluxe edition w/ 4 games (Monster Hunter, Blops 2, Mario U, & Nintendo Land) about 2 weeks ago and I absolutely love the system. Obviously the ability to play games on the gamepad is a plus, but I just flat out enjoy the videogames. I also need to echo the sentiment that Sonic Racing on this system is absolutely insanely good. I just think most people don't wanna give this system a chance because of the way it is perceived online and I can understand that.
A lot of the multiplatform games that have been brought to the Wii U also have all of their DLC and extra modes added which is awesome.
Yeah I second that. I love the Wii U too. It's a nice little device alongside my PS3/PS4. But I don't use it very much compared to my PS3 or even my Vita. In fact, i'd take a vita over a wiiu if I could only have one because i'd use it more. The wii u is a great sidepiece if you have extra money to burn, but i wouldnt use it as a main platform. I'm glad it won't be getting more 3rd party support come next gen because i'm buying those games on a platform with trophy support anyways.
Nintendo just needs to hit it hard with the 1st party games for cores. They've done all they can do to attract the families until they can price cut it. They need to attract gamers with exclusive content. I'd actually like to see a breakdown of the age of consumers who bought the WiiU. But really i'd say they need to start making more games that appeal to the 20s-30s. Anyone who is old enough to have a job and gaming as a hobby.
They'll be fine once they get DKC, Smashbros, Mariokart, and 3d Mario shipped. It's gonna come down to how well they can make core titles for "everyone". Pokemon openworld mmo would sell a ton of WiiUs. I just hope they don't double down on the failed strategy of more lackluster pre-teen games and shovelware. Their huge catalogue of 3rd party re-releases didnt do anything for them. They live and die by their 1st party games. They need to bring back more players who were playing the NES back in the 80s or snes in the 90s. A good mix of nostalgic games and new experiences is needed.
I mean really you look at how they're releasing games for the 3ds compared to the WiiU. The 3ds library is killing the WiiU library in terms of the quality of the 1st party games.They simply took the media center strategy over games approach and it didn't work. At least they're moving in the right direction now.
