I just bought a Wii U and I'm going to get the following games-
NSMBU, Nintendo Land, ZombiU, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Arkham City Armored Edition, ACIII, Black Ops 2, Darksiders 2, and Monster Hunter 3.

Are there any other retail games that are already out that I should consider getting?

So I'm using the Wii classic controller pro on my Wii U. Is the analogue stick supposed to be so sensitive? Any way to change that? Is the Wii U pro controller any different?

I know Pikmin 3 is out this week (hooray!), but I cannot believe that since launch, the only two games really worth buying are Super Mario Bros. U (the Luigi DLC was disappointing) and LEGO City Undercover.

... really poor show.

Been a Nintendo fan for years and I cannot remember a more appalling start to a consoles life!

@Peek-a-boo I can only partly agree with you, though you might not like the games I like. There's NFS Most Wanted, Tekken, Nano Assault, Injustice, Little Inferno and Sonic All-Star Racing to name a few. I've liked all of them even though not all of these names aren't worth getting a Wii U for. In fact, There still isn't a killer-app, I agree with you there. But for the poor souls who got a Wii U because they were persuaded by Pikmin as a launch-title, there was enough to keep you busy IMO. The list of Killer-apps can finally grow starting this month. In fact, It's probably the start of the killer-app list.. Can't wait for Pikmin!

@Sjoerd ... trouble is, I have a PlayStation 3 and some of those games on your list came out before the Wii U version or were quite a fair bit cheaper, especially Need For Speed: Most Wanted, which wasn't as good as Hot Pursuit anyway!

I played Little Inferno on my iPad as I got World of Goo on it too (the GamePads screen doesn't support multi-touch either) however, Gunman Clive was a nice distraction for a couple of hours. Nano Assault Neo is technically pretty, but nowhere as fun to play as Geometry Wars or Super Stardust HD.

Still, after a surprisingly poor seven months, Pikmin 3 is finally here on Friday.

Let's hope things improve from here onwards.

@Peek-a-boo Ah, that makes sense. Geometry Wars is great indeed. I'm still sceptical though, they still have a lot of catching up to do..

Greetings fellow games. I just bought a new Wii U basic for just 200 euros! I have not seen much of the games available and I know there isn't much variety but I would like some recommendations. I mostly play rpg/jrpg and adventure games but I would try any good game. However I have a Vita/PS3/Wii(now I am transferring my VC games, too pad you cannot use Wii mode off tv) so I most likely have played any multiplatform release. Also prepaid cards are not sold here so e-shop games is not an option for me which is bad since I see some interesting games.

The only "bad" think I see so far is that the menu is sort of slow.

I need help with which of these games to get.

Should I get:

  • New Super Mario Bros. U (for $45)
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us (for $40)
  • Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed Bonus Edition (for $25)
  • Need for Speed Most Wanted U (for $20)

I listed the prices because my parents are very, very tight on money, therefore I need to know which option presents the best value for the money.

For the Price

Sonic All Stars Racing.. will deliver the goods..

of the entire list..

I would go with Injustice: Gods Among Us.. it has a lot of content and characters and is well worth buying.. you might also find it cheaper online..

Of course I would try and get all these at sometime.. and while Need for Speed is good.. IMHO Sonic just barely scrapes by it for the win.. (But it's very close)

1. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
2. Earthbound
3. Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem (Coming Soon)
4. Project X by Monolith Soft (Coming Soon)
5. Bayonetta 2 (Coming Soon)

Basically, buckle up because the games are coming but it may take a little.

I have both. Sonic is way better. NFS is one of the pointless stupid games but is fun to play. Sonic is my favorite game. Injustice is also stupid but very fun and playable.

I'd rate as follows:

Sonic
Injustice
Mario
NFS.....

They are all worth a look at these prices tho. Mario is like playing with an old friend. Pretty cool and nostalgic, but I think you might find the other two more entertaining.

ChrisT99 wrote:

@Relias I should mention that all those prices are from Amazon.com, which I have a $25 gift card for. Does that change your reccomendation at all?

I know that NfS and Sonic are completely different types of racers, but what are some pros and cons of each?

I got Tekken recently and it's been a blast, but I'm just spamming offline with random characters. Learning all the moves/combos and counter reaction times looks frustrating.

I'm back here, and seeing how Need for Speed isn't shipping until Monday now, I might as well reconsider, so I ask again: which game should I get?

These are the only games that are in my price range (< $25), so any help would be greatly appreciated once more.

Get Excite Truck for Wii if you haven't played it already. Also get a 2 GB SD memory card (not SDHC) so you can put your own music into the game.

Wouldn't this fit better on the Wii Recommendations Thread?

I'd go with Batman, personally. It's one of the best games I've played in a while, all in all very well done, blows the other games out of the water.

You seemed to have a leaning towards racing games, and Excite Truck is really quite a fantastic game even today. You can also get it pretty cheap, even if you get an additional SD card for the custom music if you don't have one at the ready.
