Update since then as well

Quote:
Criterion founder Alex Ward noted on Twitter that the Burnout studio was also offered the opportunity to work on the first Forza, Mad Max, a Vauxhall only racer, a Command & Conquer FPS and a Gone in 60 Seconds game.

This begs the question, which of these properties would you have most wanted Criterion to tackle? Or did it make the right decision sticking with Burnout?
Think it good that mad max went to avalanche.

Re-Logic's 2D sandbox hit Terraria is heading to 3DS and Wii U in Q1 2016, publisher 505 Games has announced.

Both versions will feature touchscreen controls with online and offline multiplayer. The Wii U version will support up to eight-player multiplayer with four-player split-screen available. The 3DS version, however, is capped at four players total.

Necrothread, but did not want to make a new one just for this.

I picked up Ghosts and Black Ops 2 for the Wii U. Pleasantly surprised by both!

Both peaked at about maybe around 2000 or so last night, mostly in TDM(which I like to play Hardcore TDM). If you're looking for a specialty type gameplay, make some friends then!

I did prefer Black Ops II. Would love to see a a new COD game on the Wii u.

Xenoblade Chronicles comes out in a few day as well.

Eurogamer: Essential (Simon Parkin)

Nevertheless, this is contemporary Japanese RPG-making at its boldest and most imaginative in years. For every cliché - the helium-voiced furry mascot who totters along behind your group, the incongruous, schizophrenic rock-cum-rap soundtrack - there's an invention that hauls the open-world JRPG into the present, and then another that shunts it breezily into the future. Perhaps the game's greatest achievement is that, over the course of this journey, you settle into Mira and, in that mystical way of all video game greats, Mira settles into you.

The Jimquisition: 9 (Jim Sterling)

There are moments that make me scratch my head, infuriate me, and even make me cringe, but when I consider the layered mass that is Xenoblade Chronicles X, all I can think of how damn arresting it is. How much of it is there. How much of it is thoroughly enchanting.

Gamespot: 8 (Peter Brown)

Mira and its inhabitants are awe-inspiring, and experiencing everything X has to offer is a monumental and rewarding task. It makes the journey consistently interesting by giving you intricate control over your characters' abilities and gear, and by offering a wealth of new toys to play with as time goes on. You will roll your eyes at characters, and bemoan the unnecessary story padding, but these frustrations are quickly forgotten when you head into the wilderness in search of unexplored territory and unforeseen challenges. X is a grand adventure that satiates your appetite for exploration and combat in ways that few games ever do, but because getting started is half the battle, it’s an experience reserved for dedicated players who have the patience and energy to unearth its greatest treasures.

Destructoid: 9 (Chris Carter)

This is one of the more interesting reviews I've done as of late because I know Xenoblade Chronicles X will be divisive. But it truly feels like an MMO world I've been living in for several weeks now. The more grimdark theme isn't quite as charming as the original Xenoblade, but everything else makes up for it.

Polygon: 7 (Philip Kollar)

Xenoblade Chronicles X finds itself in a constant struggle between scale and bloat. When I crested over the game's first mountaintop and saw a dinosaur drinking from a lake in the valley below, it was amazing — one of those rare video game moments that can be described as "epic" without hyperbole. But the UI is just one example of how X gets in its own way, hiding its beautiful world beneath overly complicated and under-explained systems that just don't add enough. Monolith Soft has once more created something special under the Xenoblade name; it just happens to have buried that something special under a mountain of annoyances.

Kotaku UK: YES (Chris Schilling)

It’s all too much – and therein lies XCX’s greatest strength and most glaring weakness. It’s lacking focus, yet its scale is unsurpassed. It’s a game that deserves to be played, but isn’t always deserving of your time. It’s unforgivably flabby, yet capable of moments that will make your eyes widen and your mouth involuntarily gape. By turns, it is daring and safe, majestic and frustrating, impeccable and hugely flawed. Be prepared to suffer the lows and you’ll experience some incredible highs. But I wouldn’t blame you one iota if you weren’t.

Game Informer: 7.25 (Matt Miller)

I began Xenoblade Chronicles X filled with enthusiasm for its intriguing world and gorgeous visuals. But like the hackneyed songs that play ad nauseum throughout, the gameplay doesn’t have enough depth or entertainment to sustain such a prolonged experience. Players with great patience for grinding are rewarded with intriguing places to discover and creatures to fight, but for me, only a handful of the 100 hours I spent wandering Mira felt like a true adventure.

GameXplain

Gamer Professionals: 10 (Morgan Lewis)

Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of those games that comes around maybe once every decade or so. Its enormous scope, compelling story and characters, amount of sheer customization, incredible music, beautiful graphics and environments, and — I have to highlight — giant flying mechs make for a once in a lifetime experience. This doesn’t even take into account the online mode, which is not fully functional at this point, that allows you to play in squads of up to 32 different people to complete difficult quests and pick up other players’ characters for help and have them join your team for a limited time. The scary thing is that this seems like the first part in a grander story, and we may have a part two, either through DLC or another game altogether. Xenoblade Chronicles X puts the Final Fantasy games to shame and is the best RPG in the last decade — at least. It took me roughly 85 hours to complete the main quest, but there is still so much to do afterwards that you could literally spend hundreds of hours on this game. This is Tetsuya Takahashi’s masterpiece, and in his words, “15 years have passed since Monolith was founded, and I believe that with this game I have finally met the challenge I had within me, of creating an RPG in which humans and robots can co-exist.”

IDigitalTimes: 4/5 (Phillip Martinez)

Xenoblade Chronicles X won’t get the fanfare and accolades as other RPGs that came out this year, but what Monolith has brought to the Wii U should be in “Game of the Year” discussions. These are the games Nintendo needs to put out in the future.

They have increased somewhat, last time i played them both were under 900, and nobody, but nobody ever seemed to play my fave, search and destroy, i don't think i had one game on that mode, yet on the original wii this was very popular on the BO.

My wii u is sitting at my gf's house. I knew if I kept it here I would of sold it off and I wanted to play Xenoblade Chronicles. So thankfully, I still have the system to play this game now that's its almost out. Unfortunately, the girl got quite attached to Mario Kart 8 and new super Mario bros U. I'm gonna have to kick her in the front butt and run out the door with it.

I find Xenoblade Chronicles X to be the most disappointing game I have ever played. Its okay, but riddled with bad design decisions, and absolutely terrible city music. Add to that, its not really a "land traversing adventure," its more of a hub city where you go out and explore the planet, and come back... and its far too heavy on the Japan-anime stuff/tropes/whatever this time around. Buyer use caution.

I am only posting this to potentially save people money, as I wasted mine (yes I bought digital).

And for the record, I made the Xenoblade Chronicles 1 thread years back, and it still remains the best game I have ever played.
