I'm glad Nintendo are finally stepping up, i didnt follow E3, but the glimpses i've noticed have me very excited

I got one on release day and my opinion remains the same. It's the console I use to play Zelda games, not much else to it

GodzillaGuy92:

Dexterity:
Though I don't know why I'm telling you this. Nothing's going to change your exceptionally cynical opinion. Hell, I bet if they showed Wii U software that magically cures you from any disease when you turn on the console, you STILL wouldn't be impressed.

...Where'd you get that impression? The same source that told you cynicism is an inherently bad thing? I gave very clear reasons in my second post why only a few of the games displayed (several of which you brought up in defense despite my positive statements about them) caught my interest. And just for the record, the prospect of a new Star Fox does improve my estimation of the Wii U's future lineup; if they'd deigned to show us something from it, my appraisal of Nintendo's presentation would have been more enthusiastic. Perhaps if I walk away with an overall negative impression, then, it's because their presentation was genuinely underwhelming, not because I have some sort of prejudice against the console.

You're more than capable of defending yourself on the internet, but I agree, you and many of the others who "aren't on the Nintendo Hype Train" certainly have had entirely valid reasons for not doing so. While, in your case, I might also consider looking at some of the gameplay videos by people demonstrating them (particularly for Xenoblade Chronicles X), rather than just the trailers, I see no reason for you to not have the right to be not-hyped. By delivery or by base appeal, you just aren't too interested. Nothing wrong with that.

And I sure as heck would love to see a look at what Miyamoto's been cooking under the hood. Not just Starfox (though Starfox will be awesome), but his other 2 projects, too, since whenever Miyamoto does anything, it's usually pretty frigging good.

For that matter, for all the people clamoring for a new Metroid, didn't we confirm sometime back ago that Retro Studios (if I recall correctly, the brains behind the excellent Metroid Prime series) was interested in a WiiU project? Even if it's not Samus, it should be decent, huh?

Objectable:
I was pretty much blown away. I mean, their presentation can even be turned into a music video!

Oh god, people have too much time on their hands.

No, still not interested. I've played most of their releases so far, and while I reckon they're goodish games, there's nothing for me to really get invested into.

I'm waiting to see how the new Smash turns out, that is what may sell me on it. Though I'm happy they're working on a new Starfox so I can't wait to see how that will turn out.

Nazulu:

I'm not singling you out here; I'm just legitimately curious:

Hyrule Warriors (noteworthy because it is to combine both types of gameplay properly in one game)
Devil's 3rd
Bayonetta 2
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Splatoon
Project Guardian
Project Giant Robot
Wonderful 101
ZombiU.

No thoughts on any of these at all? Especially since most of them (all but Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta and Xenoblades) are entirely new ips, and only 2 of them have actually been released to be playable?

Edit: Dear god, I hate this Justin Bieber thing. I feel like I'm talking to the same person no matter where I post since everyone has his face on it.

Oh I have thoughts, and that is I really don't give a damn about most of them.

I'm not going to go into detail but there are certain things I don't like in how they design and stylise their games. So I prefer to wait till they're released so I can I go into in depth research. Because after the Wii, I really need to confirm things now.

Out of the competition, Nintendo is by far the most interesting. So I'm not saying they suck, but they're not the Nintendo I used to love. I was a big ass Smash Bros fanboy once, so that's why my main focus is on the new Smash.

Also, I'm sorry to hear you're a victim of the mystery button. lol

To each his own. I came for smash, and found everything else I liked to be icing on the cake, but we like what we like.

It certainly doesn't help that I was trying to make a gif avatar and now I can't until this thing goes away...

I still think it's a gimmicky wii clone

Was a POS, still a POS, will stay that way.

Where's the, "I was going to get one before but now I don't want to" option? This E3 has really made me realize that even if Nintendo presents a solid offering, it simply isn't enough to carry the entire console with the majority of multi-platform games I care about not getting released for it.

If I buy a WiiU, it will be after the generation is done to get it and all the best games for a steal.

Lightknight:

I legitimately hadn't considered that as an option, though I think I'm running out of slots...

Are you asking what I think of the Wii U as a console or what I think of its game library because those are different questions entirely.

All these new announcements certainly make the console look more enticing, definitely more interesting than the Xbone/ps4 lineups currently are. That said I still think the console as a whole is an underpowered gimmick rather than a relevant gaming platform and no amount of new games could change that for me.

If I ever buy one it'll be because the value the games it has are of high enough interest/ value to me to offset buying and using the actual console.

the new Star Fox, from what I've read, sounds horrible. What I've read sounds like Kid Icarus for 3DS is being made into Star Fox for the WiiU. I hope this isn't the case but not really feeling it

Devil's 3rd... let's be honest the only reason this is coming to WiiU is because Valhalla Studios developed this game for last gen systems and there's only one system that still uses last gen technology, meaning they won't have to invest too much in converting everything over

is there a sequel to Wonderful 101? Why does everybody keep mentioning this game like if something new about it was coming out?

the Xenoblade X game looks really good but it seems it won't be out for a couple more years, same for Bayonetta, I highly doubt the new Zelda starts Zelda, I think it would make more sense if it was Aryll. Also Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem? What happened? No new Fire Emblem, Metroid, or Pikmin?

Now I'm not saying I'm not happy about all the announcements but I just don't see what the big deal was about them. They were indeed better than Microsoft and Sony but I just can't be all excited for the poop that floats the most :/

I didnt want a wii u but after nintendo's digital event I will definetly buy one. I think that when all these games come out then nintendo's star will start to shine brightly again.

good for Wii U owners, and Nintendo in general. I am not getting a Wii U though, I prefer the PS4 right now, it has more games I find interesting, though I agree that the new Zelda is tempting.

MrBaskerville:

But the most important game is Devil's Third, i love Ninja Gaiden and i really need to get my hands on this one, same goes for Bayonetta 2. Probably not going to buy one anytime soon (I'm not rich), but it's the only next-gen console i consider owning, if it wasn't for WiiU i would go handheld only.

Though i will say that i wished that the From Software game and the Suda51 game were for WiiU, as they are some of the few games that got me excited on the ps4 (so far). I wish they would reach out to From Software to get an exclusive Armored Core game, or something and maybe a replacement for the Wii's No More Heroes?

This is sort of what I've been thinking myself, I've been waiting for another decent AC game from FROM, 5 and it;s spinoff weren't all that great and left a bad taste in my mouth along with them not scoring and selling as well as 4 and 4 answer.

I have doubts though I mean it's been since 2012 now and they've so far focused only on the Souls series, the latest game BloodBourne is going to be PS4 exclusive and looks to be exactly like a Souls game minus a few tiny elements, it's main selling point being dark and super gritty (a little gothic in there) along with again difficulty being a selling point and the story will no doubt be super mysterious that we need to constantly play the game multiple times to be able to understand it all because everyone on this planet objectively loves to do that in gaming (just in case since I know the answer is that already).

Really their latest game just doesn't sell me at all, the Souls series isn't at all a franchise I'm remotely interested in and it doesn't drag me in, nor do I want to play it but the AC series has done so in the past, I only wish they'd just come out with a new AC game for the Wii U or something multiplat, normally I can be patient but I'm not willing to sit around for another 5 years for them to come up with another AC game that could turn up mediocre while they ride the niche Souls gravy train.

I dunno I feel left out from them and I loved them in the past, I want to again but only if they're willing in return.

OT: I think the Wii U has more than sold itself for me, last year it was already decent for me with some games, now this year and for the next it's practically sold itself and validated the purchase, same with Microsoft's XB1 with what they've offered.

Sony on the other hand, not really much if anything, maybe R&C but I guess if I grab a Wii U and XB1 along with some PC gaming I might end up picking up a PS4 at the end of the generation when everything is an absolute steal and play all their single player stuff.

It's nice that they keep trying, but unless The Witcher 3 is Nintendo exclusive, I will not buy a WiiU.

Their games just don't do it for me, and I have acclimatised way too much to PC to even want to go back to consoles.

Maybe once another generation rolls out and they become cheap; for the exclusives, but until that day, sorry, I just have no interest in it.

Considering the strong offering of first party titles they showed it's forgivable not to consider that option. But it made me think, "Well, if it's still not enough then I guess 3rd party really is that important to me".

It was a gimmicky console before, it's a gimmicky console now. Did not and does not want.

I did go back and add that, in an interest of fairness. I just don't think I could make too much more broad a spectrum of options, especially since now I am completely out of slots.

As for 3rd Party, it's funny. Some companies don't want to make games for Nintendo until they get more customers. Some customers don't want to buy the WiiU until they get more 3rd party games. It's and endless cycle that hopefully this e3 will break. I'm certain that they'll push out more units once Smash comes out, and that should hopefully be enough to get more people to ride the Hype Train.

There is no options for people who want one but can't afford it because that would mean they wont eat this month.

First of all i don't really want a console and Wii U would be the last one on my list if i ever considered investing in one. The main issue i had with it still remains, it's useless if you arent interested in Nintendos exclusives, plus the fact that it's hardware is considered weak after the xbone and PS4 launched so it's even less likely that it will get many AAA titles from the third party after they completely abandon the previous generation. Not even one title from OP's list seems even remotely interesting to me, but thats my fault and not the consoles.

Davroth:

Food counts as something they would have to buy before they could consider a WiiU. I'd file that under option 6.

Almost none of the new announcements matter to me. I think I can say my opinion is relatively unchanged.

My opinion didn't change. Only the most cynical of people assumed that nintendo wouldn't beef up the library of the Wii U with first party titles eventually, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that suddenly a ton of nintendo games are finally coming.

Problem is, at least as far as me being interested is concerned, I couldn't care less about first party nintendo games. Not enough story, and I generally don't like the art design. Of all the games nintendo announced at E3, literally the only one that interested me in the slightest was Xenoblade. Maybe when more information about SMT x Fire Emblem comes out I'll be more interested, but for now, a resounding meh.

This is pretty much why I buy Nintendo systems; regardless of support from fickle 3rd parties, you're guaranteed a quality lineup overall no matter the circumstances.

Still would be happy with mine even if I hadn't been following E3.

I have very little interest in the AAA games that the WiiU will be missing out on, and I'm excited for the titles that are coming.

I think between this, last gen and PC, I'm not going to be missing out on any gaming any time soon.

None of that seems very interesting to me.
I love Nintendo as a company. My lack of caring about the WiiU speaks volumes of it.

Currently, there are 2.5 titles I am interested in (Bayonetta, Xenoblade, and MAYBE Zelda...never been a big fan). The Wii-U seems like it's becoming imminently playable for me. I never really got into their party games, or anything Mario related (including Smash and Kart), as I OD'ed on that stuff my first few years as a gamer.

If a few more compelling titles come out, I will have officially become a convert. Hell, all they need to do is announce two things to make me a die-hard...

1) Make a deal with RPG companies who fear "HD budgets." However fallacious, people don't expect bleeding edge graphics from Nintendo's system. This will assuage the corporate idiots who feel that RPG's are too expensive to develop for other consoles.

Hell, 3DS already seems to be the last bastion of JRPG's, so...

2) Allow crossplay with 3DS. I swear, if I can use the Wii-U to feed my 3DS video onto a TV, that will be worth it right there!

I've made these points before, but they are worth repeating.

The point where you can tell this poll isn't representative is the point where over 1/3rd of respondents have a Wii U =D

Anyway Nintendo make good games. Of those admittedly, there's only one or two I actually want to play in the sea of other good games in the world, but still they're really solid. Even more than that Nintendo surprised me and announced a lot more good games than I thought they would.

...and it's never going to be worth getting a Wii U. I am not and never will be rich enough to justify buying two consoles. It doesn't matter if Nintendo manufacture pure pixie dust because you can't live off the output of one publisher alone and it's absolutely crippling to do so. Could I spend the next couple of years missing out on the equivalents of Mass Effect, Fallout: New Vegas, Tomb Raider, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Arkham Asylum, The Witcher, The Walking Dead, Alpha Protocol, Mirrors Edge, Bastion, Saints Row 4, Portal 2...

...and just play friggin' Zelda?

No way. I need to believe that the console I'm going to buy will give me access to as wide a range of potential games as possible and Nintendo could explode hugs all day and it wouldn't be good enough to ensure that. Maybe this fantastic selection of first-party games will bring in the gamers who will then attract the third-parties? Because that sure worked with the Wii...and the Gamecube... and the N64... Nintendo have been failing to guarantee access to a wide range of games for literally longer than I could read. I'm serious, Nintendo were failing to do this when I was five.

It's basically a bunch of first party titles and games for kids.

Not really interested. Never really was.

Nope. The Wii U isn't even on my radar. Unless you are an avid Nintendo nut, I really don't see too much of a reason to get one, and even with E3, my stance has not changed.

Before e3: "Meh...Call me when Smash 4 is out. I'll consider it"

After e3: "Modsbannit, now I need to get myself a WiiU. And get almost everything they showed me. ;_;"

Between Hyrule Warriors looking even better, The elder Triforce Hyrulerim now being a thing, A yoshi's island that doesn't look like crap, and Squid kid super soaker wars (Splatoon) blowing my mind, I REALLY want a WiiU now. ;_;

The only thing that would make me happier is SNES games on the 3DS Eshop.

The only damn title that ever sparked my interest was Xenoblade Chronicles X, which was planned for a 2014 release.
So I thought: "Fine, then I'll buy one in 2014, when the game is released".

Now they have announced that it has been pushed back to 2015 (again, not even a mention of a month or anything), so I guess the closest thing on this poll that reflects my sentiment is: "I wanted one before, but I don't want one anymore." (Though, again, I might buy one in 2015, gonna wait till the release and the reviews.)

And before anyone tries to make the argument: "But won't you buy it for the other neat stuff?" No, I won't, there is nothing of interest for me. Super Smash Bros WiiU? Huzzah, more of the series that is neither party nor fighting game, so it just ends up being fanservice without depth. Mario Maker? I've been making Mario levels since the TI83+, this has been so long overdue I don't even care anymore. Zelda WiiU? I bought a Wii, played Twilight Princess, I'll stick with Okami thank you very much. (And what the hell was wrong with those faces?) Hyrule Warriors? I had to review a Dynasty Warriors game once. ONCE. Yoshi's Wooly World? Yeah, because the Yoshi games have such a good track record. Kirby and the Rainbow Curse? Gotta say, I kind of like Kirby and his "copy power" gimmick, but I didn't like Canvas Curse, so I doubt I'll like this. Sonic Boom? No. Devil's Third? Ahahaha, no. Bayonetta 2? To be fair, I really wanted to like the first Bayonetta - and I still think it's a well developed game - but I just never enjoyed it that much; never even finished it, so I'll probably skip this one. Xenoblade Chronicles X? So paragraph above. Splatoon? What if de Blob was a third person shooter - skip. Starfox WiiU? Honestly, haven't really heard or seen much about this one, but if it's more shooting around in space, I'm not interested, not my kind of thing. Project Guardian? Project Giant Robot? I don't really know enough about these to for an opinion yet, but Tower Defense isn't really my thing, I know that much.

before e3: "They got a few strong first party games and some more coming, but nothing I'm interested in and that damn controller is making that console overpriced"

after e3: "They are rolling out the wagon for first/second party games here, but once again nothing that I'm interested in and only seems to sate the niche nintendo fans that already have the console. Also, that controller being necessary is still making me not want it, microsoft was smart and has dropped the kinect as being necessary at least"
