He may be right... Not a shame for me because I haven't played it. But it's probably a shame for others.

Well, he would say that wouldn't he? I thought Zombie U was the best showcase. Oh and the gorgeous looking Pikmin 3.

Arkham City looked better in my opinion. Still EA boss plugs his own game shocker! :roll:

Hahahahahaha! Nice one, Riccitiello. Roflcopter and all that. ME3 best game on the WiiU? What a hoot!

I used to have a lot of respect for Riccitiello and the efforts he put into creating new IP at EA (e.g. Dead Space, Mirror's Edge, etc) but after all the shareholders whined about profits he's taken EA back to the tried and true formula of rushed development and endless sequels (oh and lots of DLC).

I guess Riccitiello spent the whole show walking around blind-folded with his fingers in his ears shouting "la la la I can't hear you" in order to conclude the hugely disappointing ME3 was the best game at the show.

Maybe he knows something we don't? Maybe the screen on the WiiU controller will actually have a good ending on it, unlike the one everyone else saw when they finished ME3? Maybe the second screen will have all the missing hub worlds, character interaction and planet sub-missions that were also missing in ME3 too?

I thought it was weird. Seems Nintendo is just having developers zip their lips for a little while longer. Though why they didn't come out and show this is anybody's guess. If you have it show it.

Nah... I was bitterly disappointed with Mass Effect 3, so in my Opinion, Rayman Legends, ZombiU, Super Mario Bros U, Pikmin 3, Batman Arkham City and Aliens Colonial Marines all look better.

Y'know... It's really not a bad line-up of games.

So they're saying the Wii-U's best games will be stuff we've been playing on PC/PS3/360 for like a year? I totally need one now :roll:

The ZombiU gameplay trailer was the standout for me as i thought there were some great uses of the pad. The extended version had multiple cctv camera footage on the pad for some reason.....i've no idea why but,well,it looked really cool. The Platinum Games effort looked like great fun and i've been thinking about Nintendoland. It's been described as the U's Wii Sports and yeah,it'll probably be fun to play ( tin-hat on ). Can't get that Majora's Mask video outta my head. Ah man,that was beautiful and that,a remake would've stolen the show,imo. Ah well.

Well the best game certainly wasn't Mario that's for sure. ME3 is a great game and I'd be intriged to see how they incorporate the touch screen. Should be easier using powers.
My artwork. Hope you like it :)
