What are you buying on launch day?

26 May 2012 - 02:00 PM

With the launch of a new console, there's always a flood of games, accessories, hardware, controllers, and just general stuff put out to cash in on day-one buyers. Given that a large percentage of the members of this forum will be buying a Wii U on day one (including myself), I thought this would be a fun thread.

Feel free to copy my format below:

  • 1 Wii U (in black, if available)
  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (if available); if not available Ghost Recon Online
  • Pikmin 3 (if available)
  • Wii U Play (probably going to be a pack-in title, but whatever)
  • Assassin's Creed III
  • Whatever crazy-good launch titles Nintendo puts out
  • Whatever crazy-good launch titles third parties put out
  • Killer Freaks From Outer Space
  • If there's a new Classic Controller they put out, I might pick that up
  • A headset (if the U isn't compatible with my current headset)
Other Stuff
  • A $20 eShop gift card
  • Energy drinks and lots of sweets to keep me awake

Advance Wars Wii U Concept

16 January 2012 - 05:28 PM

I love Advance Wars. It's one of my favorite series of all time, and made the almighty GBA even more awesome. I have an idea for a Wii U entry, and so here goes:
  • Create-A-CO: Create your own CO. Customize his or her looks, proficiencies, and powers.
  • Online 4-Player Battles: Pretty self-explanatory. To avoid 3-hour sessions, there may be Words With Friends-esque "at your own pace" multiplayer in that you take your turn, the other players take their turns and you get a notification when it's your turn again while you do something else (probably if this was a downloadable game)
  • New Controller Utilization: Your TV would act as a live view of the complete battlefield and give in-depth stats, and you would carry out orders on the touchscreen. This would prevent other players from seeing your actions in splitscreen.
These are just a few ideas that I have. Personally, if this was available as Wii U Ware, I'd buy it in less than a heartbeat.

What do you think?

Launch Title Prediction Thread

02 January 2012 - 03:23 PM

Well, it's 2012 and before we know it the Wii U will be out. Along with new hardware launching comes launch titles. So, what do you think will be the U's launch titles? The Pilotwings reboot and Steel Diver launches caught me off guard with the 3DS last year, so I'm stumped for first-party titles. On the third-party side though, I think Ninty needs CoD as a launch title if it comes out in November. What are your ideas?
