It gets like this every time a new system releases... "Where are the games at?" People just like to ignore the launch line ups, no matter how good they may or may not be.

You forgot about Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Egde :P

In my opinion this and Bayonetta 2 makes me kinda want to buy Wii U... But honestly, I'd like to see some new Zelda or Metroid (from Retro), would be about time.

Not sure what people expect from a launch line-up. You need to think about it, people can generally only afford to buy a couple of extra games when they buy a new console. There is little point having a long list of tripple A titles only for people to have to choose between them. I'm pretty confident out of the list of launch games, the majority of people could pick 3 games they want.

#7 Posted by spike6958 (4826 posts) -
I think it's got some great upcoming games. Not a whole lot to choose from on launch day but between now and March there's a lot of great titles coming out.

on the way

#9 Posted by MarioFan264 (780 posts) -

There are actually a great amount of titles for a wide variety of people.

You can't expect everything at launch. And I say that even though the Wii U currently lacks anything of interest for me.

dark souls? lol...soul calibur? lol....ocarina of time? again... dead or alive? meh

seems your tatste in games is niche my friend. niche games don't come out on a system until later..

Hell, i am just fine with ZombiU and New Super Mario U and even the pack in game Nintendo Land. ( and a little COD:BO2 and Tekken Tag U for good measure ), these will hold me over till Rayman Legends, Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 all before March. I dont expect to see Bayonetta 2 till summer at the earliest. After that....who knows..........

Just what games are you looking for anyway? Seems like too many already

I think there are plenty of games for a launch. Most of the time when a new console launches its a struggle to try and pick the best game at first (or even the first 3 months or so) But with the WiiU I dont think thats a problem.
#14 Posted by GunSmith1_basic (9818 posts) -
the wiiu has one of the best launch lineups in console history, if not the best period
#15 Posted by psymon100 (6138 posts) -

I don't know what the TC is on about, this is honestly a fantastic launch line up. One of the few console launches in history which compels me to own the system day-1.

We just got a Ocarina of Time remake. Way to encourage Nintendo to do the very thing they will be hated for... besides...upscaling games into HD doesn't really make much of a difference. Anyway, have you never experienced a console launch? They usually don't have that many games at first.
#17 Posted by nameless12345 (15125 posts) -

Another Ocarina remake?

No thanks.

And people say they don't want rehashes...

#18 Posted by sum_guy09 (482 posts) -

i can't help it that none of my personal favorites will be out for launch, or are even on the upcoming list for that matter...asides from zelda & smash bros which won't be out forever it seems like. im just wondering where all the big sellers are at & why so few games have been planned or announced yet. im more of a casual player & there's very few games that i'm willing to invest my time or money into.

i was at least hoping for more variety...online in particular. for instance, not everybody plays Tekken...there's only 1 fighting game to choose from, when i was hoping there would be something else, but no other fighters have even been announced yet. & as for shooters.. it's hard to get excited for another COD game. i bought & played MWF3 literally 1-2 times, because it was that boring & disappointing. those games in general are repetetive & not very competitive. then i was let down once again when i found out ZombieU has no online multiplayer whatsoever. im not even sure what games im getting anymore.. probably a couple of the 1s i mentioned simply because thats all there is.. but i know i wouldn't be if there was others to choose from, & there's a good chance i might not be playing them very much. right now im more excited for the Wii console itself than any of the games.. at least until there's more exclusives or games that i know i like & will have good replay value (online).. unless its a nintendo classic like zelda, but im hoping star fox will be online.

you're wierd.

#20 Posted by NaveedLife (17179 posts) -

I don't blame you for not being interested in the launch lineup (though it has some seemingly great titles), but to say it has a poor launch or no games is simply wrong. I think it has a great lineup, it just doesn't have a Zelda, metroid, 3D mario, or new IP from nintendo that makes me go wow, so I am a bit cautious for now.

#21 Posted by GreekGameManiac (6439 posts) -

Are you blind?

It has a bunchload of games...

#22 Posted by sum_guy09 (482 posts) -

it has a good launch lineup, yes.. i can't deny that, i just didn't see anything that made me go "Hell yea!".. or anything that i'm a personal fan of. there could have been at least 1 more fighter (mortal kombat, dead or alive, soul calibur, etc.. but there isn't so much as an announcment for any of those games which was surprising to me. i also think dark souls atorias of the abyss would've been really cool on it.. PS3 & Japan only got it recently, & there's alot of big fans of the series. if that happened i probably wouldn't even touch my PS3 again until the PS4 came out.

right now the games im thinking about getting are Black Ops, ZombieU, Trine 2 directors cut, & Tekken. i just hope i don't only play them 1 time. Aliens would've been nice.. Ghost Recon would've been nice.. but as far as i know they're still TBA. oh well.. i probably shouldn't even be getting the WiiU til more games come out but i don't have any self control. i just wanna see that sexy black box sitting next to my playstation

Why the hell would you want yet another rerelease of Ocarina of Time when the 3DS one was released last year? Why not another new Zelda or remake of a different Zelda?

because i didn't play it much on the 3DS, & id rather play it in HD on the big screen.. & because i might be dead by the time a remake of zelda gets released.. but of course i'd prefer an entirely new game, as well as star fox, smash bros, mario 3D, metroid, mario kart etc... it was my biggest motivation for getting a Wii U. i also think Wii U should've got castlevania lord of shadows 2.. it belongs on there instead of PC, but an exclusive would be even better. i also hope it gets GTA5

I think you were looking for the PS Vita forums. They are that way ---->

I'd love for there to be a brand new Star Fox game on WiiU, preferrably one that is in the vein of SF64. That is, no weird gimmicks (on foot sections), just pure, un hindered on rails shooting with lots of replay value.

yup.. u & me think alike. im all about the N64 style games & i hope there's more like those to come, just pushing the Wii U to its limits in terms of graphics.. bigger maps & of course replay value. i think online would work well with star fox but it should just be there as an option like deathmatch/coop

I've held off getting Assassins creed 3 so I can pick it up on the wii u and I'll pick up zombie u as well, might even get black ops 2 on it.. The launch line up looks awesome to me, and I'm a PC/ps3 gamer who thought the wii was beyond average, but the wii u looks great! Like Nintendo is trying again.

Be patient for the games you want. It happens when a next gen console is launched.
