Mario Kart 8
Zelda U
Super Mario 3D World
Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze
Bayonetta 2
New Super Luigi U
Pikmin 3
Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem

Square Enix exclusives have been REALLY bad for the entire 7th Generation. They won't be getting any better for the foreseeable future...


My greatest gaming fear is they'll revive the Chrono series. Then proceed to bastardize the hell out of it.

I have a WiiU for Nintendo exclusives and an Ouya for Android exclusives. Both of them are collecting dust right now....


After using my Wii as a glorified emulator of old games, and using it pretty much only for Pikmin 2 and Brawl, I learned my lesson on that one.

The Wii U has Pikmin 3 and, eventually, Smash U/Zelda/Mario/Metroid(?) and that's it. ~5 games worth playing in the forseeable future. Not interested. Let alone the fact the console has, what, 2GB/Ram with 1 reserved for system functions. That's terrible. The online implementation, while free, is terrible like its predecessor.

Well, the bad thing about the 7990 is, it's a Crossfire card and in a couple years you'll not get support for it as you do today. Hell, in a few months AMD will roll out their new 9xxx series and focus support and driver optimization for those cards.

Other words, the next generation consoles will be supported far longer than the 7990 will. Without proper support you're basically going to be running a 7970 without optimized drivers.

That's not the way it works...

If you don't care for console exclusives then there is no reason to get one. I for one rather enjoy a lot of those exclusives.

And I also have hope that FF15 can be good. It's being directed by the guy who made KH. The combat system is supposed to be real time and the game is supposed to be more openened. How much I don't know, but it shouldn't be like FF13's corridors.
