Haha I know that feel. Every time I'm at Superstore or Best Buy I have to force myself not to pick up ZombiU and Lego City because I know they'll just sit there being unplayed. I already have a backlog of games but that doesn't stop me from wanting them in my collection so badly. What's better than bringing home a new Wii U game? Bringing home two Wii U games. If you have enough points definitely do it.
I really want to get this one since the last SMB game I played on a home console was on the NES times... But I've heard this is basically the same as the DS version (which I own and love) and the Wii version (don't own but I've played it as well). I could get it for around $40/$45... Do you think it's worth the price? I doubt it'll ever go down to budget price, since I still see the Wii version priced as much as $50.
It's worth $40. Do you like Luigi at all? You could also wait for the retail version of New Super Luigi U that's only $30. You seem to be playing a few games at the moment though. If I were you I would play what you're playing now, wait for Pikmin to come out, decide if you're going to get that (I bet you will) and then use NSMBU/NSLU as a bridge when there's a gap in games you don't like.
What is up with the OOT hate? I think OOT is better than SS by orders of magnitude. I would have thought that opinion was universal before this thread. Can anyone oblige me and tell me what the basis for their rankings are?
I wish I could remember which article it was and even so it was nothing concrete but it was mentioned their Zelda U will make full of use of the gamepad and be fully integrated in every part of the game. Nothing but talk at this point but it's possible they're not showing off the gamepad until they have a flagship game (or two) with which to show it off. I'm also of the opinion unless there's a meaningful, fun and intuitive way to incorporate the gamepad into the software just let it function as a second screen/helpful utility. Not every game needs to use it for the sake of using it. Let it build up some momentum and show off it's functionality so developers are tempted to use it rather than feel forced to use it as an afterthought just because it's part of the system.
That guy repeats himself a thousand times but his point is on the mark. Could've condensed that video into a minute long clip but I'll admit he's god damn good at crow barring zombies to death so I watched it all the way through.
I spent my childhood and most of my formative years playing Nintendo, I outright rejected the PS and Xbox and never had either in my home until the PS3 which my brother bought. I skipped the Nintendo Wii but I just bought a Wii U and have absolutely no idea why. Not to say I regret the purchase. I just have no idea why or how a wave of nostalgia so big so suddenly hit me and convinced me to spend $1000+ on a Wii U, games, accessories and a new TV. I didn't see an advertisement or a friend who suggested it. A random urge, some googling and about a week later and my room is completely revamped to incorporate the Wii U and Samsung as the centerpieces.
The first games I bought along with the system were New Super Mario Bros U and Resident Evil. Mario was fun and brought back a lot of memories but it had me thinking I was just too old to really love this anymore. Resident Evil (first time playing one, I've never been as into the Zombie thing as a lot of people are) I bought specifically hoping it would scare me and allowed myself to only play at night after reading messed up stuff about messed up stuff on the internet and getting myself creeped out to begin with. The conehead zombies didn't scare me but my character's shadow literally made me jump in my seat several times, I lost most of that nervous fear when I saw the whole game wasn't set on that ship hahah. Noob.
At that point I decided I needed to go to a classic. My bread and butter Zelda. I bought Skyward Sword and god damn I'm in love again. I went in thinking the motion controlled swordplay would be awesome, was annoyed at how painful it seemed to be for my wrists after getting a taste and went back to being fan after refining my motions. I'm so stoked for Pikmin 3, Wind Waker, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart and Donkey Kong. I'm a completionist so the games I have currently plus I'll probably end up getting Darksiders 2 and Assassin's Creed should tide me over until Pikmin and beyond when the rest of these games start coming out.
I can absolutely see how avid supporters of Nintendo who spent major time with the Wii could be disillusioned with how things are currently but I am utterly optimistic that I'm going to have so much fun with this system. Hopefully, with friends I make here because I don't know a single person who owns the Wii U. Again, that speaks to some of the trouble Nintendo is/or seems to be having but I'm 100% on team "they'll figure it out."
