Topic. I'm gonna buy a Wii U in August or so. Anything out of the gate that's worth playing/coming in August?

I don't think so, but if you buy it in August you'll already have plenty of great games available to play.

Nope, but previous big titles will keep you more than enough busy until Smash comes out.

Right. Yeah, I'm gonna get the Wii U sometime in August, then go for the PS4 in September.

Problem is, due to my personal situation (just like I mentioned over on the other board), I might not be able to get a ton of games right after getting the system. The Wii U has a ton of good ones.

I liked Mario Kart 8 from its demo, and 3D World is good, but if I can only get like two from the start, which would be good?

Bump. Any other opinions?

If you're able to get a game prior to picking up a Wii U, I'd recommend Mario Kart 8. If you live in North America, get it before the end of July and register it on Club Nintendo, you can also get a digital copy of either New Super Mario Bros. U, Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3, or Wii Party U.

Only in Japan. It's September elsewhere.

I don't know if I can get Mario Kart 8. I mean, I could try.

Anything worthwhile that's out already?

How's Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition? I sold AC for the PS3, wouldn't mind playing it again. Though... are last gen ports really as bad on the Wii U as people make it seem?

MH3U would last you the longest if you like the game most likely so If you won't be able to get any other games for awhile get that. I would of said buy Mario Kart 8 now so you can pick a free game but if you are unable to buy it now you can just wait for the price to drop since MH is already 10-20$.

If you get MK8 you should do the Club Nintendo thing, even if its before you can play. It'll at least net you a free game
