I hope nintendo are just being their normal conservative selves and are just being mum about it, though id imagine xmas is normally a large chunk of their annual income, so to not have anything other than the two new mario games seems a bit of a shame.
It's not uncommon for a mobile device to have more titles than a console though.

Well i have just started playing Deux Ex HR on the wii-u, and it is fantastic, the game looks glorious, and the gamepad integration is brilliant, if i were to get 5 games of this quality a year for the wii-u i would be as happy as a british mp filling in their expenses forms.

^^^Of course it's better than the second coming, the Wii-u is a physical tangible object, the second coming is a man made fantasy. lol

He bounces, pretty useful for spike levels.

He's also the fastest character to speed run for, almost all the records will be with him and the speedrunners do some mad precision timing and jumps. Check out the records for the first level for an example of it.

When you jump, if you roll first you will jump super fast and far, kranky can keep that up while pogoing on his walking stick.

Just used my free download code after buying MK8 and downloaded Pikmin3.

At first I was dissapointed there was no Olimar but I soon forgot as the lush maps drew me in and wowed me at just what a great underrated console the WiiU is!

Really wouldn't mind a Wii U myself my only fear is that it'll just end up collecting dust like my Wii, literally owned 3 games for my Wii, smash bros, Mario Kart and donkey kong country returns and again there about the only 3 games I'd probably end up buying for the Wii U.

Just wish Nintendo would be a bit more brave and come up with some new IP's instead of relying on the older franchises, that's not to say the games they do make are bad or anything because they're not, would just like to see them put some of that creativity into creating something fresh.

The Game Collection have ZombiU for 4.99 delivered to the UK for the next 2 hours (flash sale). The box text will be in French or Dutch but the game will play in English.

I grabbed one myself, can't complain for less than a fiver. You also get 100 points for signing up, which brings the total cost of the game down to around 4.70.

EDIT: It's still being sold for 4.99 even though the timer ended yesterday.

Picked up a Wii U bundled with Mario Bros U and also grabbed Mario Kart 8 that had a code to let me download a free game, I chose Zelda Windwaker HD. So I got two games for free basically.

Mario Kart is fun, typical Mario Kart. I don't have the time to invest in starting Zelda right now. I will when it gets cooler outside and I'm in longer. Mario Bros U is good fun.

It's refreshing playing games that don't require you to shoot at something every 8 seconds.

I'd still like to pick up Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze but I hear it's reaaaaally tough. My next purchase for this system though, will be Mario 3D World.

Excited for Zelda Hyrule Warriors in September as well.

Am I missing anything that's currently out I should try that isn't listed? How's that Wonderful 101 game?

Lego city, Zombis U, Pikmen 3, Nintentoland, if you don't get these there is no point in having a Wii-U.

Also forget Mutiplat titles, Wii-U was made for exclusives only, that is were the gold is.

Played Mario Kart online last night for an hour, boy do I suck against human competition lol. This is the first game I've played the MP portion of in years. I kind of got burnt out on MP stuff after Unreal Tournament 2k3. That being said, it was a lot of fun. These kids are schooling this 33 year old but it's really exciting. Think I'll try the battle mode MP tonight.

What's everyone's opinion of Mario 3D World, is it as good as the reviews claim? I get hestiant with the ign/gamespots, they seem to be a bit overgenerous to anything Nintendo does. I am very interested in it, but just wondered what your thoughts were?

Well at lunch today I went and bought Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze over Mario 3D World. I still plan on buying Mario but after running through Trine 2 on my PS4 and seeing the new Oddworld remake I've been craving some visually appealing 2D scrollers. I've played all the ones for snes and the 3DS version, love them, so as hard as I hear it is, I'm up for the challenge.

It also didn't hurt that it's $49.99 vs. Mario is $59.99 AND I had $10 in coupons at Best Buy so it was only $39.99.

After some Mario Kart I'll give it a try tonight.

Some nice stuff coming out starting next month for PS4/XBOX ONE so I'm trying to give the Wii U some attention now before that stuff hits.
