My main question though was wether or not the WiiU improves the framerate of Wii games such as The Last Story.
No, it does not.

I'm sticking with my standard Wii it appeals to me more than the Wii U with its shockingly bad controller! what were Nintendo thinking? Iv'e been a lifelong fan but this was the last straw! they have tried to follow the trends by releasing an ipadalike controller - just aweful. Also where is the proper games? thy are seemingly giving up on metroid and F-zero and releasing more mario stuff than required, you can have too much of a good thing!

Your move N do the right thing by at least releasing some new ip or at least F zero or a new Metroid Prime or i'm outta here!

Nintendo just released a new IP (Nintendo Land) and you still beg for more? We haven't had a Mario game at launch in over a decade, so that was something to look forward to. Nintendo and Platinum Games also have The Wonderful 101 coming out next year. And Miiverse looks amazing, a huge step up from the social communication services that Sony and Microsoft currently offer (I do love PlayStation Home).

The Wii U is just 1 week old. Give it a few months to mature before you start bashing it. The surprises will come eventually, just be patient. God damn, Reggie was right, gamers are insatiable and ungrateful.

Nintendo pretty much started the touchscreen trend, before DS touchscreens were around, but not popular. When DS came out people had RAZR phones. DS came out 2.5 years before the Iphone.  If anybody started the touchpad trend, it was either Palm or Nintendo. I remember when DS came out I thought "if this had a few more features it would be super awesome like a computer..."

They just released Other M in September of 2010. Retro, might be working on a new one. F-zero never had a normal release schedule. In fact I will say F-Zero is the antithesis of Madden.

F-Zero is one thing but the last Metriod came out only 2 years ago.  Plus Other M still sold at least 500k, which is more then the last 3 F-Zero games combined did, showing Metriod is still far above F-Zero on Nintendo's scale of importance.

Seriously, people need to stop acting like Metroid is a dead series when it had more games then most other Nintendo franchises in the last decade and most of them still put up decent sales.  Not Mario level, but no where close to F-Zero dead level.

Has anyone tried an USB GC controller adapter to see if it works?  WII U doesn't have GC ports but I wonder if it still has GC drivers at least?

That way when ESHOP--Gamecube games go on sale you'll still be able to play them with standard GC controllers.

Also anyone tried an USB Fight stick modded with an GC PBC board?  Kinda want to know since I'm already ordering an light kit for my fight stick and might as well figure out what options I have for the WII U.

A USB GC controller adapter wouldn't be running GC drivers anyway.

I watched the 007 Legends trailer on the eShop and it looked like all the shaders were turned off compared to the 360/PS3 version. Was it originally planned for the Wii and then they just moved it to Wii U? I hope it looks better when it comes out, with lighting and textures turned back on.

Forget F-Zero, I want a Star Fox game. The lack of a Star Fox attraction in Nintendo Land seems like a bad sign... :(

Discussion point: Given the two thumbsticks and the gyroscopes in the WiiU GamePad, is the WiiU the first system with triple analog control? (Think about controlling the ship in Metroid Blast - that's triple analog.)

lamest excuse ever, shame on you Randy.

Lame indeed. He is basically saying they didn't do a Wii U port because he couldn't think of anything unique to do with the Wii U version. Either he was lazy or stupid because there are simple things he could do like put the map and inventory control on the GamePad. Plus, they could have just ported the same version and left it like that.

If I was a game developer I wouldn't had put Borderland 2 on it.  Maybe a collection of 1 and 2 enhanced but not just 2 because, whose going to buy it?

I don't think the Borderlands games are that story-driven. This isn't Mass Effect 3, it's more like Black Ops 2; not having played the previous game isn't really a problem.

Borderlands 2 is a big split screen coop game (because single player is dull) so there's a use for the Gamepad screen right there. Stopping making lame excuses Pitchford!

Another lame thing I read was in IGN's reasoning for saying to not buy the Wii U version of Mass Effect 3. They said you shouldn't buy it because you can't get ME and ME2 on Wii U (even though the Wii U version includes a motion comic that tells the story of the first two games, just like ME2 for PS3 did with the original). That's like saying you shouldn't buy a movie sequel on Blu Ray if the first film is only on DVD and VHS. Horrible logic.

Which is fine but back to is their enough people who don't have it who would want it?  I think not.  Especially with Steam sales.

As someone whose played all those games on the same platform I agree.  Whatever platform you start on should be the on you finish on (and that should be PC.)   Especially with the Trilogy coming out.  In a way it be like only reading a comic for the first two original Star Wars and then watching the last one otherwise.

I just don't get that logic. Say you have ME and ME2 for Xbox 360 and you just bought a Wii U. Why should you buy it for Xbox 360 and not Wii U? Of if you didn't even buy a PS3 or 360, and don't have a gaming PC, why should you completely skip this game since you only have a Wii U?

Think about it like this.  You have been playing on a basketball team with your friends for 2 seasons.  You know each other and even do things with them.  You have a good relationship going into the 3rd season.

Now think about if your someone who is coming in just in that third season.  You can hear the stories but a lot is missing by not being there.  Its a lot like that.

This game has a enough ripples and in things that not playing it where you can transfer saves (or with all the DLC for that matter) will diminish the value of the game.  ME3 is not good enough to stand on its own without the other 2 games.

I have a feeling that their publisher simply felt it was too long after the initial release on other systems.

Hopefully we won't be hearing this same excuse for Borderlands 3...

Two months is a long time in the gaming world, especially when games like these tend to have front-loaded sales. I remember a few GameCube games that didn't sell because they came out about two months after the other versions.

As a Wii U owner i would feel better if a developr just kept their mouth shut in the first place instead of coming up with lame excuses to justify why a game is not on a given platform, i mean you came up with ideas for aliens an not for borderlands, the potential for the gamepad usage for borderlands is inmnese since is a game that requires menu navigation all the time, the gamepad would be a logical fit, but i guess they just look for lame justifications so people buy future products. With Mass Effect is the same thing, anouncing Mass effect three for wii u,and later for the same price announce the trilogy on the other two consoles, that is just a shitty move by ea, well we all know their track record. I mean i am happy for those wii u owners who are experiencing the game for the first time, but clearly we nintendo fans always get ripped off by third parties, thats why i have no shame in saying that i buy a nintendo console for nintendo games, and if a good third party or colaboration comes around i would gladly give it a shot.

I think it's more that 2K haven't jumped aboard the Wii U yet. They think it's going to be another casual gaming machine like the Wii. They seem to be taking a wait and see approach before supporting the platform
