I looked into the wiiU at launch and well I wasn't even close to impressed, it had a bunch of last gen games all of which that I was interested in I already had, it had no account or back up system so I'd never buy anything online not to mention it didn't even come with a decent harddrive, all of Nintendo games were being delayed, it was behind ps3/360 feature wise and didn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, hardware was weak (I know this won't improve) so I don't really expect it to have decent third party support ever and tablet controller just seems like a waste of money.

But anyways now that it's been like a year I'm wondering how it's doing now, any noteworthy games come out, did Nintendo get it's online network and wiiU's features up to par ect.

Not much. But it'll start to pick up next month.
Welcome to Gamefaqs, where my opinion is wrong, and your opinion is right.

The UI was sped up a bit and there will be another big update between September-October, and there's a big 1st party release every month this year starting in August with Pikmin 3, followed by the Wonderful 101 in september, Wind Waker HD in october, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in september, and Super Mario 3D World in december.

Wii U hasn't been out a year. It's closer to half a year than a full year.

Anyhow, no it doesn't have a lot of games and it doesn't have a very active online presence. Unless you count the Miiverse. The MiiVerse is VERY active, and quite unique and cool.

It should be getting some games rolling out consistently in a couple of weeks. We will see.

Yes, because the games we know are coming out are actually just clever ruses.
