Irony is that Wii U probably will end up with at least as many good games as Wii did in 2012.

Also, YIIK is supposed to come out soon but no idea when. I feel like that game's been delayed like 10 times in 3 years.

Bioshock Infinite Let's Play, please watch and enjoy!:

3DS code: 2878 - 9709 - 50...



I heard that Ackk Studios moved both YIIK: A Postmodern RPG and Chromophore: Two Brothers - Director's Cut to Switch.

I think World to the West by Rain Games was confirmed to be still in development for Wii U. I'm not sure though if it launches alongside the Switch version.

No, I think they just added Switch. I follow them on Twitter so if they cancelled the Wii U version, I probably would've known.

@SKTTR it will continue for a while especially since Legend of Zelda botw did so well so the audience for games are still there.

Star soldier uhmm memories.

Bring in the love


@Chandlero Yes, all the games listed above exist in the European Wii U eShop.


You didn't mention the HD remastered edition of the Tortuga Island adventure game one of the best adventures on the PC in the last decade.
