We're talking about eva 3.0 now? This thread just got infinitely cooler. After what happened in the second I don't know where they are going or how they're going to top what they already did.

Pikminmaniac

Well I have no idea what they are doing since Mari is involved but I can't wait, the first 6 minutes were pretty damn awesome.

Man these loading times suck.

EA sports games generally suck for load times, but I thought the wiiu was supposed to be a lot better at this. It's also troubling that they can't install the games to the hard drive.

The ports are probably pretty lazy.

Just looking at the reviews for NSMBU and I'm liking what I'm seeing. Let's just forget about the 3DS one.

Same with Scribblenauts. I'm tempted for a launch buy now.

I'm not too positive about IGN in this one. Looking in MC for WiiU games, IGN always come on top. =/ But I'll try myself the games next year most likely.

Because this thread is for fans, if you're not a fan, why are you in this thread. Your answer is obviously to not to answer.

Finalstar doesn't feel like picking up the will that he wrote I guess, it is a depressing process for some people.

According to rumors, Nintendo will have plenty in stock so anyone that wants one for the holidays will be able to get one in time for Christmas. So basically after the initial shipment, more should come in every week. They are hoping to be able to stock better than with the wii.
#480 Posted by Shadowchronicle (25977 posts) -
Wii U actually looks like something I'd play with unlike the wii... Which literally just sat in my corner for about.. Let me think a year. I like all the stuff Nintendo put into it I'll have to get this sooner or later.

I would not be surprised at all if all this fuss over lack of supply is just marketing BS. It's an artificial shortage meant to make people crazy about getting one and making it seem more special to own one.

Link, mobile only since it doesn't show up on the desktop version of the site. Pretty surprised by the score, the game actually looked decent in videos.

Huh. That's pretty damning. Isn't that breaking embargo though? I thought ZombiU reviews go live on 11/18? In which case, it might still be a mistake. [spoiler] Desperately wanting this to be good... [/spoiler]

The reviews aren't officially out yet. For whatever reason, the mobile site sometimes shows scores/reviews before they actually go up. It happened before with Resident Evil 6.

edit so I don't triple post:

The text for the ZombiU review is here.

Hm, toying with the URL leads to more unpublished reviews. Unrelated to the Wii U, but found the Hitman Absolution review too. :3

Worse then that judging by the score.

Damn that's pretty rough about ZombiU. Seems like pretty much what I thought would lower the score, there just not being enough stuff to do. It's shame the melee combat had to be boring on top of that.

That NSMBU review sounds very positive though, must be at the very least an 8.5
