I went from probably not going to get one to maybe going to get one eventually. Other than Smash all the other games that were announced were 2015 or not dated so there's no point in getting one right now. I'd rather get a PS4 or a better graphics card and think about getting a Wii U down the line
Somewhere between no interest, and some interest. I still don't think that I'll end up with one, albeit Nintendo is slowly starting to make a decent case for themselves. When that Zelda game comes out, and it's in my wheelhouse, maybe. I've never owned a Wii, and some of its classic hold a minor interest for me, which is a plus.
Right now I'd rather get a 3DS for Fire Emblem. It's really the only exclusive game on Nintendo platforms in recent years which I actively yearn for.
Somewhere between loving my Wii U and feeling okay about it, but I'm sure that'll change once I finally get Mario Kart.
My Wii U's already seen tons of use from Monster Hunter and Super Mario 3d World, and I imagine getting Mario Kart is what'll get me to start looking forward towards the upcoming titles.
I've gotten more value out of my Wii U than I have out of my Xbox One or PS4. This can't keep up obviously, once the 3rd party games start coming in hot and heavy my multiplatform console of choice (The Xbox One due to navigation, digital marketplace and controller related reasons) will eclipse it but I feel it'll always be ahead of my PS4. After the press conference it seems certain that Nintendo will continue to have the most compelling suite of 1st party content of any of the console owners. Also the success of their livestreams seems to bode well for them.
They gained a couple of points by surprising me with Devils Third, but lost a couple of points by not having anything Metroid related. Everything else was a known quantity that I was already excited about anyway.
OH! Nothing on SMT x Fire Emblem was a kind of disappointing.
there are some great games heading to the console, still have no interest in one.
Sums up my feelings exactly. I think it's great for the people who own one that these games are coming, but I still would never pick one up. If Zelda looks like it did in the trailer though, that game is gonna be amazing.
I honestly felt much more comfortable with the idea of getting a Wii U after the direct. New zelda and the reminder of how much I love Smash bros, on top of my want of several other already released Nintendo games finally made me decide to get one later this year.
I was already a big fan of the system. I assumed it would be this thing where I only ended up getting ten or so games for it over its lifespan, but as of now I have bought seven games (and gotten one free) in under a year.It has mostly been positive experiences with three Wii U games in my top 10 of last year and only one real disappointment (Sonic) and one game that just isn't for me .(Pikmin)
With all the new announcements and cool looking stuff coming this year I feel really good about owning the system. I am super, duper, mega excited for Bayonetta 2.
Oh, and Super Castlevania IV is on the eshop, so the console must be rad.
I'm intrigued by the new Zelda (which is new to me since I stopped caring after OoT), if really is as open as they said which felt like he may as well have said Deus Ex: Zelda edition then I'm sold on it. Also want to check out Xenoblade Chronicles as I am a mecha fan, but if I see turn based mech combat I'm out.
Well, I haven't touched my Wii U in months. It's doing that dust collecting thing now, but there's at least 5-6 games from that event I'm dying to play. The 30 seconds of Zelda they showed looks amazing, claymation Kirby looks adorable, Xenoblade should be great, Mario Maker is a must-buy, Captain Toad... maybe, even Splatoon has promise. I might even get the Bayonettas just for the hell of it. Hell, I'm excited to play as Ice-T in Smash Bros.
But... fuck Yoshi. Wasting that beautiful yarn style on garbage.
You have...only one end?
Sarcasm and subtle wiener jokes don't work well on the internet.
If I bought one now I probably wouldn't feel bad about it. Definitely a good flow of upcoming games and some stuff on the Virtual Console that has piqued my interest. Before E3 I really had no reason to get one, but Nintendo is winning me over, albeit very slowly. I'll probably still wait a bit and see how these games pan out. I definitely want to get a PS4 so funds are limited, but we'll see. Nintendo is starting to move in that positive direction.
If they had announced a new Metroid this week along with everything else I would've bought a Wii U like, yesterday.
I've been loving my WiiU. Super Mario 3D World, Dr. Luigi and Mario Kart 8 have been taking up most my time lately.
The Digital Event, Treehouse, Dev Conferences and Smash Bros. Invitational all had announcements big and small. Great showing for Nintendo and the WiiU. Highlights for me were Mario Maker, Star Fox development, exploration concept for the next LoZ, Codename: STEAM and Xenoblade Chronicles X.
Before this event I just blew off all of Nintendo in general. I grew up with them but they lost me on the Wii with the waggle controls. I gamed on the 360 and recently built myself a pretty beefy PC. Problem is, I've been getting incredibly bored with gaming in general lately and I haven't been able to put my finger on why.
Their event was invigorating to watch! I was excited about damn near every thing they showed! I was blown away by the fact that I hadn't even recognized Nintendo at all lately and that I was suddenly very intrigued. It made me start to think that maybe I've been so bored with gaming because I've been missing the (mostly) simple, fun games that Nintendo has been producing. I'm now very much considering buying a Wii U to play games like the Mario platforming games, Mario Kart, Smash Bros., Zelda... re-immersing myself in my childhood loves that I have been missing for so long. The thought that I could finally re-energize my love for gaming has me excited. Nintendo's digital event did that for me and I'm shocked that it did.
Once it gets down to 200 I'll buy one. The new games they showed off look fantastic and I've been jonesing for some nintendo, since I don't have a 3ds either.
You can buy a refurb in the Nintendo store for 200. They're basically the same as new, only much cheaper.
Well looks like I'm part of the majority. What I love about the narrative in this E3 is how all the companies and the companies that seemed ot have their backs against the wall (e.g. MS and Nintendo even more so) actually had respective, strong showings. Not one necessarily blew the others out of the water, unlike Sony last year. I'm liking the direction that each company is headed and at the very least we don't have to worry too much about the future.
Also back to the point, I'll get a WiiU at some point :D
