What are the first 2 games i should buy?

I'm really bored of nintendo land... after beating all team attractions, so I need to find 2 perfect launch games to keep me covered while other games release

Please add me on my Wii U!

NSMB wii u will keep you going for a good while, especially with the DL Luigi wii u. this is a super fun game if you like side scroller Mario. Nintendoland is the only other one i own...Waiting for Mario Kart are we?

1. New Super Mario Bros. U
2. Um.... I'd take your pick of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, or Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate.

NSMBU is a great choice. Apart from that, while waiting for upcoming games later this year (such as Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Watch Dogs, Rayman Legends and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze), maybe Lego City Undercover or Batman Arkham City (or perhaps Darksiders 2). Or save the money for Pikmin 3, because it's soon here!  :)

I'm in the same situation, but since I already own a PS3, I'm looking to get the Nintendo exclusives first, so NSMBU, Lego City, Monster Hunter 3 are all great options imho. Looking forward for Pikmin 3 and the WW HD remake  ^_^


Oh and Trine 2 sounds like a great experience on the Wii U. Excellent game overall, but from what I've heard there's some extras on the Wii U version.

Sonic if you like Kart Racing, Need For Speed Most Wanted U if you like run from the cops, Monster Hunter if you like games full of a lot of content and that are hard to master.  :D

Sonic if you like Throwing your controller through the TV but in a good way, Need For Speed Most Wanted U if you like run from PS4 and XBox One but get an EA game, Monster Hunter if you like games full of a lot of content and that are hard to master.  :D

Fixed your post. ;)

The best survival horror i played in the last years. The games have an amazing atmosphere.

I think Pikmin 3 is worth waiting for. Only a month more.

Also, have you tried out the Rayman Challenges App? It's free and has new challenges every day. It should help until the games you actually want come out.

Call of Duty Black ops 2

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate


Those games should keep you busy for awhile (if not for ever lol)


But i would also recommend Assasins creed 3. 

I have completed the game with a total of 36hours playtime, and yet i have only 36% total completion because i havent done mutch of the side quests.


Bonus is that the game is really cheap also.

You should get Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, you will probably get more out of that for your money's worth than any other Wii U game right now :D

Can`t go wrong with Mario. Having also played the Wii and DS game, this is the best of the 3.


Lego City is pretty good too and there`s a lot to do. I finished the game and normally i would put the game away, but i really feel like exploring it and do some objectives that are really cool.


Still, whatever game you choose, Wii U has a really good line-up if you never played the ports.

If you like M games ZombiU or Call of Duty Black Ops 2

If you want the best E games get Mario Bros U or Sonic Racing

If you want sports Fifa, NBA, or Madden


You gotta tell us what you like and what you don't like.

I would suggest u to wait 1 month for pikmin 3 OR wonderful 101... or both...  but there is also lots of other good games out.


buy 1 now and 1 in a month.. (pikmin 3, if u like RTS, real time strategy)
