Yay! Finally picked up WiiU. Any advice on games to get?

#1donnbobhardyPosted 3/14/2013 5:12:46 AM
I finally bit the bullet on buying a WiiU. My wife is making me sell my Wii to help fund it. I got the Deluxe from the sale on Walmart's website where you get a game for free (Mario U!).

Any good downloads I should look for?

Any hidden gems I should know about?

Can the trolls stay away?

ZombiU
MH3U in a week.

There's a virtual console title going for 30 cents every month until the virtual console has it's official launch. F-Zero is this month's title.

Definitely try Dark Souls and Alan Wake.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

Well, there's obviously the ported third party games you may or may not have played. Batman, Assassin's Creed, Mass Effect, Need for Speed, and Ninja Gaiden.

NintendoLand and NSMBU are both great, ZombiU is good (but not great, a sequel fixing a few issues would be met with open arms by me)

Trine 2 is a good download title if you haven't played it yet.

Nintendoland is extremely fun with friends, solo it's meh.

Tekken is... well.. Tekken... If you like that tpe of game, you can't do much wrong.

AC3 if you like the franchise and haven't played it on PC yet.

Mario U is fun, if you like the 'new' series.

that's all the games I have

Lego City Undercover is a great mindless fun game unless you take yourself too seriously, in which case you might want to stay away.
ZombiU is great. Not the best game ever but definitely worth a purchase.
Monster Hunter coming soon.
Trine 2. Short but fun for what it is.

Fanboys are a cancer to gaming but Sony fanboys are a particularly aggressive and repulsive form.

If you've not played it on other systems Darksiders 2 is quite fun. Hack and slash with some puzzle elements. Paid DLC is already included.
