Which Games Are You Planning On Purchasing Or Do You Already Have?

So it's official. I'm getting my Wii U this week likely on the 17th along with 4 games (Will be taking advantage of the Target deal as well). I'm planning on purchasing the Wii U Deluxe model along with Need For Speed: Most Wanted, but I'm not sure what I want to get for the other 3 games because they're all such excellent choices. That's where you guys come in (I want to purchase what the community will have).

What games do you guys already have and are planning on purchasing?
NSMBU, Nintendo Land, ZombiU, maybe NG3RE. NG3 fits what I like to play best, but it seems to be a sufficiently good game, not a proficiently good one. It's hard to prioritize it with the games coming to the 360 and 3DS. The 3DS is killing it this year so far.

I'm a big fan of ZombiU, and it DID win our highly-competitive, coveted, and first WiiU GOTY (you always remember your first). Survivor mode is properly intense at times, and hunting down the corpses of online friends for teh lootz never gets old. :p

NSMBU wasn't on my radar at launch. I was burnt out on 2D Mario, but i recently picked it up and started having a lot of fun. The challenge modes are great when you're playing competitively with a friend, and the multiplayer is pretty damned good. As a solo experience it's fairly comparable to other recent efforts, so that is entirely down to how ready you are to go back to the series.

I'd say wait a couple of days for Monster Hunter. If you're a fan, it's going to be epic online fun with all of us. If you're not a fan, well there's nothing i can do for you. Maybe someone living closer can help you with some involuntary electro-shock therapy to bring you around. All i can do from here is hope you'll see the light.

Then there's the wildcard of Lego City...

I own the following games:- new super mario bros. u- darksiders II- assassin's creed III- mass effect 3- 007 legends- nintendoland- trine 2- black ops 2- sonic racing- nba 2k13- madden nfl 12- batman- fifa 12- zombi u- ninja gaiden 3
I'm purchasing the following next week:- need for speed- monster hunter - lego city


I'm getting NFS, Monster Hunter and Lego City.
I suggest you grab ZombiU though, my favorite game ever. Least until the even more awesome sequel gets released.
I don't know if I'm going to get Need For Speed this month or next, it depends on if I can get it on sale and how much spending money I have left... I feel like I overspent this month already buying a lot of music mostly (Just a lot of stuff came out/comes out in march, and with artist I like I'm mostly buying overseas so it's expensive shipping on top), plus Monster Hunter, Pokemon, Spider-man (which was a bit of an impulse buy but I wanted it before, and skipped it on the HD twins because I planned to get it on the 3DS since I was playing that more at the time, still true I guess, but then that version got panned and everything fell out. Still it was $30 on Amazon, heck of a deal I think). So now I'm debating on getting Need For Speed and Luigi's Mansion next month, of course next month I already payed for Soul Hackers and Pandora's Tower... so I dunno... Maybe I'm just being stingy.. I may get one... it just depends.
I have the following:

-Zombi U (8.3'd)
-New Super Mario Bros U
-Mighty Switch Force (7.0'd)
-Trine 2: Director's Cut
-Nano Assault Neo

ZombiU is one of the best games I've played last year. Don't let my score discourage you.

Some games weren't accounted for because they don't have a release date announced.

Arkham Origins has moved to low priority for me as it's just been said by GI to have no online. I can see it now, "We released a gimped version of our game on the Wii U and it didn't sell as well as the non-gimped versions!"

I love you Warner Bros., but no shit.

I'll be getting every Nintendo-published title released this year and 2014. Third party will depend on whether the version is up to scratch.

The Eshop will be taking a rolyal hammering from my wallet too, with CBK, Shovel Night and Scram Kitty as almost-definates, with Shadow of the Eternals, Cryamore, 1001 Spikes and 90s Arcade Racer all set firmly in my sights. I'm looking forward to seeing how Super Ubie Land, Liege, Armikrog, Ballpoint Universe and a whole load of others turn out too.

Support U, get my cash. Simples.


resident remnant robot relic
So far we have:Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (my reason for having the system now)Nintendo LandLego City Undercover (the wife's reason for having the system now)(also downloaded Super Metroid)I'm pleased as shit with what's going to be on offer through 2014 - it may not be a lot of software, but it's a top heavy line-up and more than enough to keep me busy. No idea what comes after that for the system, but I have to say it will have been worth it regardless. Here's what I am down for:


The Wonderful 101
(I have been won over recently on the grounds that it's not Pikmin but is in fact an action brawler first and foremost - one that does some neat things with the pad)

Deus Ex
(also a more recent conversion, and while I would love the variety this would add to the fall-winter holiday gaming lineup for me I don't really want to pay more than $30 for it and would either wait it out til 2014 or a PC release if necessary)

Winter Holidays

Super Mario 3D World
(Christmas day!)

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze


Mario Kart 8
(Day one)

(Day one)

Bayonetta 2
(Day one)

Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem
(Day one)

At some point

I'm going to get a copy of New Super Mario Bros. U
at some point, I've just been waiting for the right time. It will happen out of the blue I am sure.

As always there's a bunch of maybes and no doubt some stuff I'm forgetting as well. But that's the line-up that's really got my attention.

The Human Metroid
The demo was sluggish and choppy. Assuming you have the final, is it better than the demo?
My brother beat the demo and said he did not have any frame rate issues and that so far he has not experienced any issues with the full version which may have something to do with how much console memory you have left :-?


Well-Known Member
I was actually thinking about that the other day.The coming 3 month are probably going to be the most I've EVER spent for videogames.
- The Wii U- The Xbone- and at least
10 games ( W101, Ghosts, BF4, NB2K14, Madden 25, Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD, Watchsdogs, etc... ) !- and all the accessories.
DAMNED, it's going to hurt the wallet.
I hope, I'll make good commissions :)
