@Action51
Yeah that's true I forgot about just dance, although I have never liked those games or understood how they became so popular. I am not an xbox guy but I have always preferred dance central games to just dance when I get in the mood to shake my groove thang LOL. In all seriousness, I will play dance central with my wife and her friends, but I never play just dance.

As far as rayman, hopefully they keep supporting wiiu with those, they are always similar but always very awesome platformers.

Just curious, what are your thoughts on watch dogs wiiu? Think it will be cancelled?

As others have said this will end up being ubi-fodder for dropping wiiu support. Do they really expect it to sell well on wiiu MONTHS after everyone else gets it for other systems?

I've said many times I fully expect the wiiu version to be cancelled, which is a shame as I'd want it on wiiu over any other system

@KingGanny
In regards to watchdogs I hope you are right, because i want to own it on wiiu. I do not want to have to get ANOTHER next gen system right now to play it. I wouldn't purchase it for PS3 or Xbox 360 and I sure as heck am not buying an xbox one ever.
But here is the thing, ubi already said AC unity is not coming to wiiu, has been dropping support as time goes on, and we all remember how the wiiu got that "definitive edition" of colonial marines we were promised (I know, different company but it's the premise) .I just feel the chance of cancellation is very high because it's doomed to fail from the start BY DESIGN

REALLY NINTENDOLIFE???
Let me ask YOU a question, at this point how many users on this site do you REALLY think give a flying f@#$ what EA has to say? And ubisoft is equally on the s#$% list for delaying (and more than likely cancelling) watch dogs wiiu and skipping AC Unity.
I know you live off clickbait and all, but seriously, give it a rest

Wishful thinking that someday this could be played without using my n64 on wiiu virtual console, and I agree with the fullbringichigo guy...much better than the remake which was great in its own right but their is just something about the original. Easily one of my ALL TIME favorite games

@theadrock13
first off the wiiu is more powerful than ps3 and xbox360, people love to use this argument but they are wrong.

second, their is no need for wiiu to be as powerful as ps4/Xbox one..if they were all the same in terms of power what purpose would it serve?

finally lets talk about power...colecovison and intellivision were "more powerful" than the atari 2600 and what happened? PLENTY Of powerful systems in the past and so what? did neo geo, cdi, psp, ps vita, 3do, or 32x set the world on fire? exactly

Good thing Nintendo has something EA sorely lacks...class. I would have tweeted back so glad you finally got SOMETHING to work because battlefield 4 sure STILL doesn't months after it's release for millions of paying customers!

On a side note I'm not big on FPS games as they get repetitive and boring, but for all activisiona fault at least call of duty always works upon release and is so much better than boringfield

@faint
No I get that, I was just saying that the wiiu one was advertised as the definitive version that was coming later than the other versions and look how that turned out. Yeah it got horrible reviews and I know that didn't help, but I suspect if watch dogs gets bad reviews the same thing will happen like it did to aliens. Off topic, how is that major jerkface randy pitchford not in jail for what he did? Scamming for years while funneling money into BORINGlands when it was supposed to go towards aliens?

@dumedum
Well I won't be surprised when the article pops up here and other video game sites that says "watch dogs wiiu cancelled"
Think about it, neither of the new assassins creed games are coming to wiiu, even the ps3/360 version. Watch dogs is due out in about six weeks on every other console. Do you remember a recent article that said a 2014 watch dogs wiiu was "a possibility" do you really think months later Ubisoft will release a game on wiiu that has been out for a long time on all other systems? Why so they can cry "oh look how bad it sold on wiiu!"

I know ubi was the biggest 3rd party supporter of wiiu for a long time but that ship has sailed

@faint
They said the same thing about aliens colonial marines, I think anyone who really thinks watch dogs will ever arrive on wiiu is being naive. Which is a shame, I was really looking forward to it on wiiu. IF I ever get a PS4, that will be the game to justify my purchase, bit I would much prefer it on wiiu

@outburst
I respectfully disagree with you about wiiu not being able to handle the graphics. Wiiu gets so much flak about not being "powerful" enough yet all the games I have played graphics have been awesome. Personally I care much more about gameplay though

@8bitforever
That's your opinion and you are entitled to it, I respect your view..I just firmly disagree that nintendo isn't "capable" anymore. Look at Super Mario 3D World and Donkey Kong, seem like very capable games. If they don't do it for you, sell your wiiu and move on. Nobody is stopping you.
For me and a lot of other gamers, we want the alternative to the same old song and dance with sony or microsoft.
For now I'll stick with wiiu and my ps3, I see no reason to get anything more than that. NOTHING out right now has me wanting another next gen system. And despite PLENTY of people on this website who disagree with FACTS, Wiiu is a next generation console.

@8bitforever
And waht exactly does all the "extra power" do? Social network feature and options that people don't want.

If I want to watch tv or a movie...guess what, I turn on my tv. What a concept.
If I want to look at facebook, I look at my phone.
I MAY be in the minority here, but I want my video game consoles to do one thing, play video games.

@electrolite77
I forgot to mention I also do agree Nintendo is "dropping the ball" when it comes to their franchises...Metroid, star fox, f-zero (which I never made a big deal about but I digress), excitebike (not offshoots), eternal darkness, sports games without Mario, EVEN WII SPORTS...all great franchises that should have a new game being made NOW or some news of one at least.. or actually games people want to play on virtual console, MORE nes/snes/n64 classics...I wish they churned those out more often

@electrolite77
Well at least you made some valid points, and I'm sorry you feel taken advantage of. But here in the US it was not that bad, and many of the points you listed did not affect us. Hey at least you got Doshin the giant for gamecube, I had to buy a special disc just to play it.

I agree about the selection of virtual console games being horrible MOST of the time, their are literally hundreds of great games they could have on there right now. But as far as the cloud based system, or what happened when your wii got stolen... Nintendo is behind on that, yes, but I think it makes sense that they would be as they have nowhere near the online community members that other consoles have. It would probably cost way more than it's worth.

Look at it this way, I have owned FIVE xbox 360s...not because I wanted to, because they kept dying on me. Whereas my wii got dropped, hit, went through two hurricanes, and it still works perfectly. Frankly, Nintendo hardware is usually super reliable.

Thank you for sharing your points, and again sorry it was that bad in the UK. But for a US gamer who didn't experience most of those issues I can understand you opinion just not share it.

I am venting steam as well, no worries! I just feel like Nintendo always gets the shaft. I too think the wiiu will eventually improve though. But honestly their is a "stigma" that Nintendo is only for Nintendo games. But IF 3rd parties put effort into supporting wiiu, gamers would buy them. I really think had wiiu sold like hotcakes, EA, Ubisoft, and others would be "gracing" us with their games more often.

@electrolite77
Well, let's hash it out then....Why do you feel Nintendo is nickel and diming you?

Me, I don't see microtransactions, every game having on disc DLC that we pay to unlock (cough cough mass effect) or paying for online services, or having to be "gold" to do anything with your console...

So let's hear you point of view, it sounds like you have been a gamer as long as I have (since the late 70's when I was old enough to have an Atari joystick in my hand)

As I said in an earlier post why would they release a new console? Who would buy it? Who would support it? It would be the exact same as now. And honestly, if their were three identical consoles out there, how many people would chose a Nintendo one.

I agree with you 100% on two things you said, Nintendo is far more respectable as a company than sony, and light years ahead of Microsoft.
Also I miss the days of local multiplayer, their was magic to be had staying up all night with three buddies talking smack and playing goldeneye 007 and Mario kart (Nintendo 64 days I mean)

And I also feel I'd rather have a select few quality games a year versus the milking that goes on with (for example) the music / dance games, maddens, assassins creed or call of duty - although there are SOME games in those series I enjoy. COD Ghosts was awesome, I got the wiiu version and never looked back

@HappyMaskedGuy

I do not blame fans for not buying poor 3rd party titles. And you are correct, what Nintendo lacks in quantity they make up for a million times over in quality. I'd rather play Mario 3d, or donkey kong any day rather than assassins creed # 74 or call of duty #256, or madden 37th year in a row.

Admittedly, I enjoy games other than Nintendo games, I play some call of duty games, a big fan of uncharted, gears of war, MLB the show, etc As much as I love Nintendo games, I love others too. But what I am pissed about is lame excuses from 3rd party developers and so called "fan experts" who think everything is nintendos fault.

AJSjedi commented on Latest Assassin's Creed Announcement Continues...:

Well allow me to be one of the first to say screw you Ubisoft. I'm DONE supporting your games. Why don't you get a set of BALLS and just come out and say what everyone already knows...watch dogs is cancelled for Wiiu.

And while I'm on the topic, please let's hear from some of these "armchair quarterbacks" on this site who think they are such experts as to why everything wrong with the wiiu is Nintendo's fault..

Last generation, developers cried and moaned that wii was too weak, so they made a wiiu which is leaps and bounds better than wii, and better than ps3/xbox 360 as it should be. It's not as powerful as PS4 or Xbox One obviously, but here is the thing..IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE.
If nintnedo came out with a system as powerful as them tomorrow, do you think anything would be different? Do you honestly think so? Developers would simply find another lame excuse as to why they don't support it. Gamers would still find fault with it and go back to their "mature" titles, and it would be the same as it is today.

I'm not an idiot that thinks Nintendo is innocent, but overwhelmingly it gets flak for things that are not it's fault. It's not nintendos job to market 3rd party games. And it's not Nintendo wiiu owners fault that we are not paying full price for watered down ports, rehashes of old games, half-@#$ incomplete games...that is the PUBLISHERS fault.

Why buy mass effect 3 for full price when the same price on other systems gets a trilogy? why pay full price for games like assassins creed 4, batman arkham origins, injustice gods among us, or splinter cell when they don't even include all features from other systems? I do not EVER buy DLC or play online multiplayer but even I see that ripping people off does not endear them to you.

One of the greatest strengths of Nintendo is that they DONT nickel and dime you with everything like "the other two" consoles out there. But when developers want to milk fans for every penny and Nintendo does not want that, it's Nintendo's fault?

I have zero complaints about being a wiiu owner, and I have no plans to upgrade my ps3 or (heaven forbid) 360 to their next gen as nothing appeals to me, I have a huge backlog on wii, wiiu, and ps3, and not the least bit impressed by ps4 or xbox one and their requirements. But to continue to blame Nintendo for not "making a more pleasant atmosphere" for 3rd party games is just plain stupid. What are they supposed to do?

Let 3rd parties go, I am sick and tired of half !@#$ ports anyway. If you are going to make an effort, I'll try it and if I like it I'll buy it. And stop the lame excuses about "our games don't sell on wiiu"

Have nintendo said anything about being able to use two balance boards at the same time? If so then my wife and I can play together instead of taking turns and we will wait for the deluxe set that comes out next year. If not we may just spring for two of the sensors

AJSjedi commented on Review: Disney Infinity Figurines:

@ACK
Where do I begin? First off let me say clearly this is not mean to offend. However, you sound like a marketing persona, and a bad one at that. I have to disagree with all your principles. You come off sounding like someone with a grudge against disney.

It has been established the roster is the way it is because it's targeted toward the younger generation. They are more familiar with pixar films / characters than classic disney ones.

Regarding skylanders figures, what exactly are they. Everyone I know who looks at one asks themselves that. Where as when you look at disney you instantly know exactly who or what it is. And saying they are poor quality? They are not meant to be "toys" you play with. You mentioned kids not wanting to buy things they already have...umm call of duty anyone? When they come out with new toys from a line already released they don't seem to have any trouble selling them.
One last thing also regarding skylanders, only little children seem the least bit interested, where as with infinity I've seen / read / heard more adults talking about this than kids. That is why you see so many items at the store, everyone is enjoying this game.

Again nothing personal but your points come off as bitter and biased. I copied this to your other article as well not to upset or anger you or bait you into an argument, but for the sake of discussion

@rjejr
That's an opinion I've read a lot. People asking why no classic Disney and mostly Pixar. The only theory I have is that since it's geared towards kids they figured start with more recent stuff. But i'm sure if this gets as big as I think it's going to get, I have no doubt eventually we will see more of the classics. How cool would it be to play as the love bug in a cars world? (NOT the Lindsey lohan love bug!) or to play as the cat from outer space in something...OOPS i'm showing my age...gotta run!
