    There are still a good few demos, so it's not like there isn't stuff to play about with. It's more that stuff that you'd see on the like of Live doesn't always have a demo, which I'd have expected. Some do, like Trine 2, but not all.

    There do seem to be articles that say demos can hurt sales, but it's hard to figure out how much given there's not really a control experiment to compare against. That said, I can see people finding the Monster Hunter 3 demo a bit overwhelming as it throws you in the deep end a bit. The game itself is a little more gentle. At the same time, it does let you experience the combat that makes up a large part of the game, so maybe some people bought it after playing it, even though they weren't planning to.

    I do at least hope that, when it becomes more financially viable, we'll see more regular demos. Of course, more regular games releases is a prerequisite for that so it's going to take a while. It's not the sort of thing that I expect Nintendo to lead by example with though. Can't see them bothering with a Mario Kart demo when the people that fancy it will buy it regardless. I've been wrong before though, as there was a demo of Mario Kart DS.

    Yeah I need to play bit.trip again. Got to the 2nd world after perfecting the 1st but not played it since.

    Its certainly a pad biter. That's for sure. Will go back to it again once I've caught up on my 3DS backlog.

    I love Bit Trip Runner; I too need to get back into it, other games have taking over my time at the moment.

    Still nothing in the gap for September but looking at the US schedule expect the following games to get slotted in for this year:

    Disney Infinity

    Some time in November:
    LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
    Sonic: Lost World
    Just Dance 2014
    Zumba Fitness World Party

    Not a bad lineup overall unless you really like COD and FIFA.

    I don't think that's too shabby, from a quality perspective. Nintendo clearly owes Ubisoft a lot here as they will be supporting the console with Splinter Cell, Assassin's Creed IV and Rayman Legends. The Wind Waker remake is due for Autumn. Then there's Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario 3D Land. Isn't Mario & Sonic at the Winter Games also due this year?

    All in all, there's about 10 Wii U games i'd like to pick up in the remainder of this year. If I don't quit my job anytime soon...

    Wii Party is another one due before the year is out but I can't really testify to its quality.

    Donkey Kong is October I think and Mario 3d is December.

    They did say they had other games to be released in the second half of the year that they were going to announce closer to release. Or did I imagine that?

    They did indeed. They said it was to protect ideas from other developers. Whether that's significant or not, I don't know.

    Well they did sort of confirm it, and Official Nintendo Magazine is still running previews of it most months, but what confirmation we have had is flimsy at best.

    It's certainly past the time where, if the confirmation was misinterpreted, someone at Activision should really have said "That's not happening". You'd certainly assume that when a game journalist is sent from Official Nintendo Magazine to interview you, you'd say something about it not happening before they put any more in their magazine about a game you're not making.

    I'm thinking of getting a Wii U over the weekend. Basic or Premium? Personally, I prefer the white model but it's only 8GB. Would I need to immediately buy a hard drive to go with it?

    Rule of thumb is that you will need a compatible external usb hard drive sooner rather than later if you buy the basic model as it only has a few gb free for game saves - you won't be able to download much from the shop.

    I had one lying around so just went with the basic, works a treat.

    The premium comes with charge cradle and stand and also this (allegedly) 10% premium pay back deal on eshop which actually equates to 8pts to the pound spent which then translates back into 500pts for £5 back.

    That doesn't seem to be 10% back to me or I'm a real number dummy.

    I bought the ZombiU premium because I also wanted a pro pad, and obviously the game.

    I think a hard drive is needed sooner than later if you get either console if you're planning on buying digital games so maybe the 8gb is better for you? Especially as you prefer the colour. Lego City is 22gb for example although games that size are in the minority.

    In other news. I'M GETTING PIKMIN 3 TODAY!!!!

    Are saved games stored in a separate allocation from the 3GB or are they eating into the 3GB also?

    Going back to the premium 10% deal. I'm not sure if it is 10%, but i've already been handed a fiver back. I also found out (a little too late) that this money can be credited to either your Wii U or 3DS eShop account, so you could technically spend it on 3DS games instead, if you have one.

    @mazty Does Super Smash Bros really need a story mode? It's a bit like Wii Sports. Great in multiplayer and great in single player if you've got challenges to beat. There's no need to be told that you're bowling to save the entire planet, or anything.

    The actual story mode wasn't amazing but the cut scenes were fantastic, all the characters turning up along the way was superb.

    I can't even remember it, to be honest. I only played alone to unlock things and that wasn't quite as often as playing multiplayer.
