Wii are glad, are U?

Posted by LewaLew , Jun 11 2013 · 425 views

Glad I got a Wii U for my family instead of waiting for the next Xbox. And I never really considered PlayStation 4.
I care about fun games my family as a whole can enjoy--never been all that concerned about graphics. Besides, all of the games we would have gotten on an Xbox One will also probably be available on the Wii U. The main difference is that with the Xbox 360 we couldn't play Mario, Zelda, Smash Bros., LEGO City, or Donkey Kong, and now with the Wii U we can. Plus, there's all those Virtual Console games, and I've really enjoyed those--particularly Super Metroid, which was on sale for $0.30. I thankfully won't have to worry about any foul mouthed goons in those games like I unfortunately encountered so often in Arkham City.
To be fair, though, it's not like Arkham City wasn't on Nintendo systems anyway. I'm probably going to skip out on Arkham Origins. Or maybe I'll rent it. I'll see. I just hope the goons can form a sentence without me having to mute the game. I already play without subtitles for that reason. I'm even thinking of selling my copy. My Asylum copy is a downloaded version, but the goons in that game were much better than City's anyhow.
P.S. I don't understand why people are so fussy about Rare's project being DKC: Tropical Freeze. Yeah, I know, they wanted Metroid and are just whining about it, but what is it, do they think the Wii U will come and go without a Metroid installment?

I don't care about any Metroid games, I'm whining about no Star Fox. :(

The real crime is that there was no Star Fox on the Wii.

I think they're not upset because it's no Metroid; but because it's another DK title... Instead of stuff like Star Fox or Metroid, or even other titles.(After hearing something about a possible Sci-Fi game and seeing Megaman's inclusion, I was getting rather excited, until I couldn't find the source for that, and realized their new title really was the DK one.)

The only problem I have with it is that there was all this hype and suspense about "ooooooh Retro's making a secret project" - and then it turns out to be Donkey Kong. Again. Donkey Kong is awesome, of course - the game itself looks great and I'll definitely pick it up when I finally decide it's time to get a Wii U - but a little variety would be nice.

I suppose so. Though Donkey Kong has only had one game made by Retro. Metroid had, what, three?


Star Fox and F-Zero are more than due, though.

Howdy Folks!

I'm LewaLew, former BZPower RK, former Reporter, and former unofficial baseball blogger. Once, this blog served as the home of my primarily baseball-related musings. Now that I'm in college, I have little time for baseball and BZPower, so it sits here idle except for an occasional visit on my part. Please enjoy or cringe at what you read from my past, and if you'd like, go ahead and comment in the favorite baseball teams entry so that the next time a blue moon rolls around and I visit, I can add you to that content block.

Play Well!

For those of you who don't know (which would mean everyone but Aho-Chan and Sumiki) the BaseBlog is beyond a blog, this is beyond baseball it's a blog that focuses on the great American sport of baseball. The idea of a baseball themed blog has actually been in the works by me ever since Super Bowl XLIV, when Aho-Chan posted a blog entry asking if anyone besides himself didn't care for the Super Bowl, to which I suddenly got the idea of a baseball-themed blog so I could talk about my favorite sport without waiting for someone else to post in the Official Baseball Topic in the Completely Off Topic forum.

Play Ball, folks.
