And so, the butter was spread even thinner :?

The series is out and done, focus on fixing up what's there.

If it's true then why not show it last night?

Given EA's half-assed attempt to bring the series over to the PS3, I really hope for future WiiU owners they're gonna get the whole package this time around.

Nintendo might have blagged EA for the reveal of it. Sort of a "Here's our first party exclusive games AND here's some decent 3rd party support. Very nice, very nice! How much"

Yes, Borat will be doing the reveal.

Clearly EA don't want Nintendo owners to miss out on the s**t-fest that is ME3's ending.

I hope there are some secrets left for the Nintendo conference. When i was a kid,me and my brother knew we were getting the Master System for Christmas so we wagged school and took the back off our parents wardrobe to sneek the console out. We'd finished Wonder Boy in a few hours and when Christmas Day arrived we were bored shitless with the thing as there were no surprises to be had. :(

No idea how I didn't think of that, I'm just running on fumes today after staying up for Sony.

Great for anyone without any of the other consoles and PC. Funnilly, I am going through the first one for the first time. I would have thought of waiting if I hadn't gotten the first not long ago.

But at most, it's still only going to be Mass Effect 2 and 3 (since Microsoft published the first game and I don't see them being generous enough to give it to Nintendo) with some random WiiU functionality thrown in. Unless they chuck in that iPad game for free for use on the WiiU gamepad...

It's not a bad thing Mass Effect coming out on the Wii, it's just with the amount of trash that EA publishes, Mass Effect on the Wii should be a whole new game (a spin off), but it won't be the case. I don't see what all the fuss is about with a lot of Wii U games, as a high number of them are just cross format games. But once the PS4 and Xbox 720 are out, I wonder if the Wii U will be able to keep up? I doubt it.

If you thought Wii U users were just going to be disappointed by the hardware, then wait till you get a load of THAT ending, guys...
