  • News EA Outlines Its Reasons for Lack of Wii U Support

    From "unprecedented" to "unsupported"

    To say that EA's lack of support for the Wii U has been to the detriment of the fledgling console would perhaps be an understatement.

    I am Jack's complete lack of surprise

  • News Sniper Elite V2 on Wii U Lacks Online Co-Op and DLC

    Hardly the "definitive version"

    Sniper Elite V2 has arrived in stores in Europe and North America with next to no fanfare.

    A return in investment looks a long way away

    Just over a month ago Retro City Rampage arrived on the Wii Shop on the Wii and, of course, Wii U, bringing a wacky, irreverent tale cloaked in endless parodies and retro-GTA infused gameplay.

    Not so long ago Capcom released its Lost Planet spin off game E.X. Troopers in Japan on the 3DS and Playstation 3.
