    The negative reaction was because it was fairly obviously (and cynically) dressed up as a Mario game despite not being on in any way shape or form.

    In itself is was an ok little game, but it was the classic Nintendo move of using their IP to sell a half-baked average game to fanboys.

    I've still got it on my to-do list. Straight after Eternal Darkness.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Nintendo are trying to work on cross platform development solutions, so something like this wouldn't be unlikely. It'll be a plud to any consumer who owns either a Wii U or 3DS. But if you've got both...

    It was a stopgap until a proper mario game came out. Sadly, that was super mario sunshine.

    Will the Wii U connect to a DLNA compliant server (Tversity / PS3 media server) to show video files? I couldn't work out how to do it when I had a quick look yesterday.

    Will a nintendo console do something that is now standard networking functionality? What do you think?

    Nintendo are innovators. Those functions are old and irrelevant.

    Luigi's mansion was great. Just played it for the first time on the weekend. Disappointingly short but great fun.

    I think I can strike that off my list then.

    Think I'll br continuing to plunder the Wii back catalogue for the forseeable future then.

    Monster Hunter and maybe Most Wanted are still possibilities though.
    based on one review? who incidentally gave Lego LOTR and harry potter 6's.

    Makes me wonder if it is bad, eurogamer have stuck gold with that saving the wii u headline, fanboys are going to have a field day.

    Bad reviews are wrong, only good reviews count.

    They've built it up themselves. I'd like to think it'll be a good game, but the older games didn't appeal to me all that much. They're simple enough to play through with your kids, if you have any, but they are quite simple and seem to get massively repetitive.

    Edge can drop the odd clanger every now and then. They gave Dragon Age: Origins a 5/10 IIRC. I somewhat doubt Lego City is going to be quite that much of a disparity from popular opinion though.

    Which relative to other Game Informer review scores means it's not as good as Resident Evil 6.

    I've never really 'got' the lego games. I had Star wars on the wii and it was just...meh. I just couldn't get into it.I appreciate that some people love them but they do absolutely nothing for me, I hate to use the phrase "kid's game" but this is certainly one series where I felt way too old.

    I just assumed it was in an app or something I couldn't find.

    My problem was always the camera. If it had a fully controllable camera like every other third person game I suspect I'd enjoy them.

    It would be next to useless without an ethernet port anyway.

    Why would you want to go online when it doesn't have an online account system?

    the 360 I have in the bedroom.

    My boy called me through to help with a bit he was stuck at yesterday - "Can you not use the Force on that lever?" I suggested? "No Dad, it's Lego Indiana Jones....". Clearly he was thinking what a cretin I was....

    Miyamoto wanted Pikmin 3 to release sooner.

    Me too Mr Miyamoto.........me too.

    That might have been something worth thinking about during the preceding seven years.

    I think the Wii U has more than enough ports don't you ;-)

    Amazon have dropped the price to 199/250 now as well. Seriously tempted!

    I honestly don't think I'd be tempted at 50. Until there's actually a game I want to play, the price of the console is irrelevant.

    Absolutely no trolling, total seriousness. What game do you so desperately want to play on the WiiU that you consider it worth spending 200 right now on?

    It's been available for less than that at various points over the last month... where have you been? Or is it that you only buy from Amazon?

    At this moment only Mario Galaxy 3, or a proper HD Zelda would get me to buy.
  • Deleted user 11 March 2013 18:22:54
    Nothing really as yet, i got an itch to play some mario, and i'm really looking forward to pikmin 3. If rayman had come out, then that for sure would have bitten already.
