As an objective gamer myself, the PS4's launch lineup looks more appealing than the Wii U's launch lineup did. I'd take NSMB.U, Nintendo Land & ZombiU over sony's and MS's next gen lineup 'combined'. I get a 2D Mario Sidescroller on launch day, a party game based on Nintendo franchises using the Wii U game Pad in fun unique & innovative ways, while ZombiU takes survival horror to a whole new level in terms of how you play game. At this point i'm far more interested in the potential hardware innovation/screen(aka 2nd window into the gaming world) of the game pad, rather than playing another slew of run of the mill traditionally twin stick controlled '3D' games with next gen visual facelifts. These days, i'm just not a big fan anymore of most 3D titles, unless there's some unique, nifty and innovative gimmick attached to them. Elebits, Zack & Wiki and Metroid Prime 3 are three wonderful examples which completely blew my mind, with MP3 taking the cool dudes crown. Now If the PS4 were busting out the vintage capcom guns, with a new 2D Mega Man, Viewtiful Joe, power stone, RE reboot using pointer controls and what have you i'd be singing a different tune. But as is, it's all very Western driven with a giant splash of B.L.A.N.D At this point, outside of Nintendo in order to get 2D titles we have to rely on many of these hit and miss Indie developers... Shovel Knight is definitly what i'm looking forward to the most! Edited on Thu 22nd August, 2013 @ 00:59 by WaveBoy Currently Playing: Donkey kong Country! - Virtual Console!
