@Samus7Killer How are Bayonetta 1/2 and The Wonderful 101 (and any other Platinum games on Wii U)? I know theyre good but I'm still not sure if they're games I would enjoy. Can you think of any other games (either Nintendo or other platforms) they are similar to, to help me see if I would like them?

Also, do you think the demos for each are a good indication of the general game and gameplay? I heard for Bayonetta particularly that the demo isn't that great so I'm not sure if I should judge either game by its demo.

@shadow-wolf Bayonetta 1 is really good but I personally prefer the second game. I would probably compare it to Dmc: Devil May Cry in many ways but I still think that Bayonetta is better. The demo for Bayonetta 2 is decent but it doesn't really capture the whole game as each level has really different scenarios. I think they picked one of the worse levels for the demo but as it's the first in the main game it makes sense.

I would say that if you're the type of person that will just play through the story once and leaves the game then afterwards you will still enjoy the Bayonetta games, but a lot of your time will be spent replaying the levels with different weapons and difficulties so you might miss out a little.

I've never played The Wonderful 101, I didn't enjoy the demo sadly...

Starfox Zero was codeveloped with Platinum so I guess that sort of counts?

@shadow-wolf Bayonettas are basically Devil May Cry 1 but modernized and you're a female witch. Super Stylish and Super Fun. B1 is probably Kamiya's best work if Okami didn't exist. If you're into Japaneesy Hacky Slashies then the 2 pack is your cup a tea.

As for The Wonderful 101 its as if Pikmin and Viewtiful Joe and Bayonetta all got together and made a 100 babies and with a dash of Okami.

@Kimyonaakuma YEs StarFox Zero is P* dev... but they were handcuffed by Miyamoto's motion control aiming. They actually perfected what he had envisioned and it's it's worst enemy for the game. People hated the game because of this, but the controls will grow on you and you get it down eventually. IT's a P* game, so it's really worth it to master it and play it twice at least. It's Super Stylish and Super LotsA Fun! It's my 2nd fave StarFox game. Yeah i said that.

@Kimyonaakuma @Samus7Killer Thanks for both of your suggestions. I tried the demos to Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 yesterday. I tried to like Wonderful 101 but it just seems pretty complicated and confusing. I'm sure it's a great game, but the demo didn't make the game interesting to me and made it seem a bit too complicated for my tastes.

Bayonetta 2 though seemed great. I actually never played Devil May Cry but I played a bit of God of War before and Bayonetta reminds me of God of War. I guess I could borrow it from the local library, they have both 1 and 2 so that should be worth playing.

@shadow-wolf If I can make a statement about Wonderful 101, while I didn't necessarily think it was the greatest thing ever like a lot of people, it was a lot of fun. The demo does not do it justice. And if you want to really get the most out of it and nail combos and go for Platinum medals on every level, I imagine it does get very complicated and confusing. If, like me, you just want a fun game to enjoy playing and enjoy the story and characters and gameplay, you can play on an easier difficulty and not care about what medal you get, it is a lot of fun. Plus, if you do that and then decide you enjoyed it enough to try to go back and do all the extra things, there will be a ton of replay value (although I didn't bother doing that).

Monster Hunter and The Wonderful 101 have actually demos that don't help the game selling. If I would go by the demos alone, I would have never touched those two games.

@Xyphon22 @SKTTR I'll keep that in mind, thanks for letting me know! I might as well try it when I get a chance then.

@SKTTR agreed on W101. It doesn't do it justice. The game is freaking good. It has the best game intro in the history of gaming. Game is freaking wonderful! nice icon btw

@shadow-wolf you should just buy W101. it's cheap as hell by now. Get it before it becomes rare.

@Samus7Killer Okay I'll try it out, considering both of you and other people have mentioned how good it is it certainly is worth a look.

shadow-wolf

Samus7Killer

@shadow-wolf it's basically a mix of Bayonetta + Pikmin + Viewtiful Joe designs + and a splash of Okami.

Samus7Killer

shadow-wolf

@Samus7Killer Quite an interesting combo for sure. I'll make it a point to try it out sometime!

I ordered The Wonderful 101.
I have most of the Nintendo games except Smash (only a casual so Brawl+3DS seemed enough for me) and Sonic Boom (though I hear it's bad but not terribly bad), Shantae Half-Genie Hero and Mighty No. 9 and first print Rodea (oddly that and Tokyo Mirage were the first games I bought).
Wonder if there's any others I should try to look for while the console is probably at its low in demand.

@Samus7Killer: Glad you're enjoying TP HD! It was my first Zelda game (the Wii version), though I'm hoping to get to the HD version soon.

Currently playing: Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, XC2: Torna - The Golden Country

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

If you don't have a Switch, get Breath Of The Wild!
It's a super absolute must!

Motion Control Games for 4yr-old?

Just bought the WIIU for my toddler grandson. Could someone please recommend a couple of motion control games and the type of accessories I would need. Something a 4yr-old could start off with?

Thanks for your time.

@DigiDave The 2 Mario Galaxy games off Wii VC perhaps? You would need a Wiimote and Nunchuk to play those. I imagine the Wii U Gamepad is too large for him? Or perhaps not, sometimes kids can surprise you. As for Wii U motion control games the big one is Splatoon. I'm sure there is still an active community playing that online. He may find that a little difficult though but I'm sure he'd still have fun playing Turf Wars and there is always the single player campaign. Mario Kart 8 as well has gyro controlled steering as an option. There's not a lot of actual Wii U games that have motion controls though.However there are quite a few Wii VC games on the Eshop that do, plus the Wii U can play Wii discs. As long as you have a Wiimote and Nunchuk for Wii games you're good to go.

Just to say, I noticed you posted earlier in another thread and it was locked. This site may have some links to Nintendo but it is an independent fan site and the moderators are just active members. Just letting you know so you don't get upset with Nintendo themselves thinking their staff are taking rude to you.

@DigiDave If it didn't come with Nintendo Land that's the best place to start. My youngest son is now 5 but he started playing that at 3 and he fell in love with Zelda on there. He could be the sword or the bow and arrow. He's probably played that alone for about 30 to 40 hours and that's not including the rest of the games.

@DigiDave Typically, Wii games have more motion control than Wii U games. But that is fine because the Wii U is able to play all Wii games. When my son was young he enjoyed playing Wii Sports Resort and Go Vacation, and like others have said, Nintendo Land has a wide variety of games. I am sure there are plenty more.
