We’ve covered the massively immature and annoying Superdae before, mainly because he somehow has a ton of confidential information around the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and threatened to release all the information onto the Internet if he gets arrested.
The gloves are off in the battle to win the next generation of consoles and we’ve already seen a few missteps from the main contenders. Nintendo went early in an attempt to pick up the early adopters but forgot the most important rule of them all. It’s all about gaming, make sure you have games.
I’m an unabashed fan of Skylanders and the idea of integrating real world objects into video games. Which means I should be excited about the upcoming Disney Infinity.. and yet I can’t seem to get the same level of excitement going.
We posted previously that EA currently had no games in development for the Wii-U which I took as a sign that Nintendo is failing. Then we heard that EA were stopping their online pass fee which took us all by surprise.
I like the Wii-U, Geoff and Zoe are also solid fans of the new Nintendo device but by the look of things that’s about all the fans the poor console has at the moment and the latest news that EA is currently not making any games for the Wii-U isn’t helping.
The video’s and news about Assassin’s Creed 4 just keeps on coming and it’s becoming very obvious that this title is a seriously big deal for Ubisoft this year.
Rumor has it that the Wii U will soon be boasting a range of new games, courtesy of smartphone apps.
E3 is renowned for 2 things, the first being the huge amount of new that is broken at the event. We get to see the latest and greatest plans for everyone from the big console manufacturers to the latest geeky hardware to the top AAA titles we are going to be playing in the next few years.
Ubisoft have released a new Splinter Cell Blacklist trailer that specifically showcases the advantages and features of the Nintendo Wii-U version over the others. It’s nice to see a developer specifically targeting the strengths of the new Nintendo console.
Back in early February we were told that Rayman Legends for the Wii-U was being delayed as the title went multi-platform and the fans vented with the most amazing amount of vitriol. However according to the creator of Rayman, Michel Ancel, this delay isn’t all bad.
The Wii-U isn’t selling as well as Nintendo hoped and that is partly because a lot of people are waiting on the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 and partly on the current slate of games available for the platform. The guys and girls over at Neogaf have been putting their Photoshop skills to the test and have put together a bunch of gaming covers that they think will make the platform soar.
You hear that? It’s the feint cries of happiness of all the Nintendo Wii-U owners waking up to find out that the seriously sub-standard Aliens: Colonial Marines will not be landing on their device in the near future.
I’m a fan of the Wii-U, I desperately want one but right now my finances can’t stretch to get one, but it looks like I may be in the minority on this one and some people even believe the Wii-U could spell the end for Nintendo.
Geoff posted the news about the new Skylanders Swap Force the other day and it is pretty clear that Geoff isn’t a huge fan of the Activision plan but I can’t say I hold the same contempt for the ideas coming out of the publisher.
How serious are Nintendo about protecting children on its online network? So serious that they banned a user for simply allowing his niece to draw a picture using his account.
