pretty much, their 1st party line-up does nothing for me, or my kids anymore. I have 2 Wii's in the house that haven't really gotten any use in 2 years now outside of Just Dance 4... If they got some great 3rd party games then that might sway me, but I've already been burnt once....
If anyone isn't convinced now, then they weren't going to buy one to begin with (which is perfectly fine).
Nintendo needs new franchises. I’m sick to death of the same old franchises. They’re also screwed when it comes to third-party support....
Some of the stuff they showed today is certainly promising (FINALLY!). But once next gen is unveiled I doubt I’ll care as much as I do now.
As it stands, it'll have to wait until the instant I'm back home. Considering picking it up while travelling back from the airport.
Zombie U already has me wanting a Wii U.
That new Monolith game certainly has my attention.
Windwaker HD?? Starting to shake now........
Now give me a proper Metroid game from Retro, and you have my money N.
If doesn't sell you then nothing will.
Just saw this...HOLY SHIT!!!
I should have waited. Oh well.
I won't make the same mistake I did with Wii and the DS Lite as both early adopters.
These games are just upgrades of their Wii brothers who are upgrades of their Gamecube ancestors.
Wind Waker HD - hd remakes are a no
Wonderful 101 - good, confusing but good
X - great
New Mario - nope
New Mario Kart - nope
New Smash Bros - nope
New Zelda - maybe but years away
So no, not even close yet. No killer apps unless you really love the same Nintendo franchise games.
Some recycled franchises with a new coat of paint and a JRPG is hardly exciting to me.
As Stump said in the other thread, this is about what we expected from Nintendo. First party was never going to be an issue. Third party output will continue to be miserable and only get worse when the next gen consoles hit quite likely.
No, not yet.
Now we all know that the Wii U has gotten flack for not having any games that supposedly pushed the platform to its best potential and some criticizing it for having lackluster release titles that hadn't yet convinced them that investing in the Wii U was worth it. I myself was one of those who figured that jumping into the Wii U just wasn't worth it.
And then we had the Nintendo Direct today.
NEW YOSHI GAME. WIND WAKER HD. FIRE EMBLEM X SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI. CONFIRMED SMASH BROS, NEW MARIO, AND AND MARIO KART AT E3.
As I said in another thread, it's as if Nintendo went online and literally looked at every piece of wild speculation surrounding this Direct and made it a reality. So with these Nintendo titles, are you finally willing to invest in the Wii U, or does Nintendo still need to do something else and if so, what is that thing?
Yoshi Game - Expected and meh.
Wind Walker HD - Definitely something I would get if I had the system, but no system seller.
Fire Emblem x SMT - Now this could be really fucking awesome... but when will I get to play an English version of it? 2015?
Smash Bros - Was always coming anyway, not my type of game...
3d Mario - Was always coming anyway...
Mario Kart - Series has fallen the fuck off and was always coming anyway...
New zelda - Seems a long way off, has my interest but sometimes you don't change things that aren't broken... who knows if they'll go through with this version of Zelda in the end too.. and it seems a long way off
Monolith's X - Okay this is the game for me, but again the question is when.
