All average edit:(close to) scores of 80 and above. The Wii was awesome (though admittedly not a system geared towards all audiences)

And if you hate motion controls then for the most part the Wii was a great disappointment. Like you said, it was for a particular audience.

At least we had dreams. And three out of five great games is not bad. With Wii, outside of the launch period we never got a moment of hardcore hype for the system. There was a good two+ years in Gamecube's life where excitement for present and future games was nonstop.

He was super excited about that when he posted it, and we were talking about it just before he posted it on the site. It came from an actual dev, but that's about as much as I can say about the source, other than what I've already said.

But that same source has also commented on Epic's comments from yesterday too

So how ever you wish to take the info, with or without salt... or perhaps not at all, E3 should be really good this year. One that I'm sure I will never forget at least.

RE4 Wii >>>>>>>>>> RE4 GCN

RE4 Wii is a testament to good controls making a great game even better.

If you disagree... well... you're entitled to your opinion. Even if it's wrong.

Unfortunately, there was a big cost for it in the form of Miyamoto joining Epic.

and I guess while I am in here, and before I go to sleep, I will just drop this in here.

It's linked to in the OP, but with less than a month to go before E3 and conversation slowing down, now would be a good time to drop it in it's entirety.

**all links lead back to NWR forums which then may link to the respective sources of "rumor"**

-uMote to get better range than we thought!? let's hope so. Nintendo was conservative with Wavebird too...
-Wii U to "Street Pass" like 3DS?; using Gamer Cards to collect data on the go? sounds good to me... I guess.
-Wii U @ $350?; Likely just a place holder price, but why spend money to advertise it?


May
-More to the "Android on Wii U" rumors than we previously thought? Very fully featured OS incoming? A supposed Google employee on GAF seems to think so....
-Google and Nintendo have been working on an OS together since 2007 (post from 4/30/2010)
-"Clicky Sticks" on the uMote!?; Another controller feature to bring parity between Wii U and PS360
-New Patents show possible uMote stand and Zapper gun attachments; lots more plastic attachments to come, I''m sure.
-Starfox in the works for Wii U?; Let's hope that whoever is making it, loved SF64.
-Blockbuster Leaks Wii U Lineup?; looks pretty solid if true.

But that same source has also commented on Epic's comments from yesterday too


So how ever you wish to take the info, with or without salt... or perhaps not at all, E3 should be really good this year. One that I'm sure I will never forget at least.

Would be interesting to see what his 'source' is. Nothing I've heard about Epic's engines and the Wii U imply this, including the reputed v4 -> v5 (or v3 -> v4, whatever it was) 'significant' performance boost.

I'm in the same boat, I want to be hopeful but I just can't bring myself to set myself up for disappointment.

I know him personally and he knows the source. And like I said, we were discussing the info before he posted it to the site. There is more to it but I can't really share anything else without compromising him and/or his source.

Every E3, before Nintendo's conference, I purposely lower my expectations to the worst possible case (i.e. E3 2008). The problem is that I still come out disappointed one way or another.

I don't like not having a lot of Japanese games for WiiU

Famitsu should have been all over that already

Are you willing to place a perma-ban bet on this UE4 news coming true by E3?

I've never suggested someone take a ban bet unless I really can't stand them, but don't think I want you gone or anything. I'm just really curious to see how strongly you believe this rumor.

Fair enough. As said, it's interesting he says that, as yeah, from the people I've spoken to UE4's situation was still up in the air. Same go for reports of any notable hardware alterations.

Does he personally know his developer source? As in face-to-face communication?

I can see Nintendo making background deals not to have WiiU locked out of ports
Hopefully things are not as dire as we imagine them to be

Now if they had reworked other aspects of the game with these controls in mind, then it would truly be a better game. To me the pointer are interesting, and a fresh take on the original game, but it does not automatically make it a superior experience.

Thanks for the update. Hoping it turns out to be true, but I will not expect it.

He already did a sort-of ban bet on himself (from NWR) if it didn't happen.
I will not place that same faith in the news as it was not told to me directly and therefore I can only vouch that the person who said to me really believes it to be 110% truth.

Portal 2's DLC got me thinking what Nintendo's stance on user generated content is. Would they want tightly controlled content and networking like MS or a more open approach to user content/control like Sony?

It does seem like Nintendo would be very interested in having UE4 work on their system. Watching the interview between Geoff and Reggie again, Reggie says several times that Nintendo is concerned about 3rd party content and having games the other systems will have.

Crysis 3 (best console version)

GTAV w/3-6 months exclusivity

Yes, I know this will never happen, I'm just asking to ask

God, I dream of the day (Nintendo supported) user created Mario and Zelda content exists.
