Postby FixBeatGames » 22 Nov 2012, 15:05

4 of those games have had GOOD reviews, NONE 'EXCELLENT' reviews. the rest MEDIOCRE and POOR reviews.

2 of the 4 which has GOOD reviews, are out on ps3/360 already.

but yeah, great launch line up :roll:

That's a mighty fine line up. Sadly, I can't personally justify buying one... Not yet at least.

Go back and look at the 360 and PS3 launch line-up. This is a strong launch.

ME3 Special edition? more like lite edition.

Think i'm going to hold back for this year, thats not going to be a launch line up that will be praised in 10 years to come, if the game isn't a weaker port its a shovelware title and only 2 from the big N themselfs? one being a milked mario bro's and the other a mini game collection? =/ just reminds me of how disapointing the e3 was.

Look I'm not sold on the Wii U yet but anyone knocking this launch lineup is insane or has forgotten the launch lineup of every console since the Colecovision.

This is such a solid showing for a launch, you can buy good games that aren't s**tty Ridge Racer cash in's or cobbled together nonsense on launch day, good games to play on launch day! That just doesn't happen. Props to Nintendo for a strong showing. Launch days are full of buyers remorse and desperately trying to show your friend why your purchase matters by showing him terrible games, it's always been that way*, Wii U buyers actually stand a chance of converting people day one with these games.

* With the exception of the Dreamcast that had an awesome launch lineup and can do no wrong ever.

You're joking right? Yeah, PS3 launch was crap but the 360 launched with Call of Duty 2, Condemned, Kameo, NFS Most Wanted, Perfect Dark 0 and Project Gotham 3. Much stronger lineup that the Wii Us.

Four of those have scored 9+ on ign,three in the mid 80's from what I've seen so far . This doesn't include inie games on the e-shop of which some are again getting great reviews. It's a good launch line-up. In fact I can't think of a better launch line-up. Not one.

At a glance, I would only be interested in New Super Mario Bros. U and ZombiU from that list.

You know the scary thing about his reply to you? That a fully grown man (presumably) just said "lol"

And implied that different genres = good line-up.

And not realising stealth doesn't need a sidekick.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

:D
Well I did think that originally, Baz but then I thought...'I am a fully grown man who has been awake for roughly 24 hours and yet still doesn't feel tired.
And who also put an 'aitch' in front of a random word for the sake of it!
Hwot hsorta htwat ham hi?
Agree with you about that 'lol' lark though.
Hhorrible.
With a capital 12!
