I picked up a Wii U yesterday, I got the black 32gb set that comes with Nintendo Land. I also picked up New Super Mario Bros U because well, duh. I have enough money for one other game, what other game should I pick up for my brand new Wii U?
I can't really give any recommendations since besides Nintendoland and "N"SMBU, which you already picked up, I only got Warriors Orochi 3. (which I am having fun with it, but it's a hard game to recommend to someone) and am feeling pretty set.
I mean I think what I've heard about ZombiU sound potentially interesting but it's not popping out as something I would definetly enjoy so I'm passing on it for now. I think if you don't have anything that you're particulary interested in you should just save your money until something more worthwhile comes along.
@Sackmanjones: It felt to stressful, the fact that if I died I would loose everything and would have essentially just wasted the past hours. I don't have a problem with difficult games, but I do have a problem with games that force you to replay past areas hours back.
Might as well just wait for the spring releases if nothing else immediately catches your eye. Pikmin 3 and Rayman Legends are coming, so it wouldn't hurt to save for those if either interest you. Beyond Mario, Zombi U and Nintendoland, I think you're good. Unless you missed one of the previously released games that were ported over...I hear Ninja Gaiden 3 fares a bit better on the Wii U.
So, if you don't like Dark Souls/Demon's souls style games, then really the only fully worthwhile games available for the WiiU are NintendoLand, and if you've never played one before, New Super Mario Brothers U. Maybe Black Ops 2 if you don't have it on another platform?
Otherwise everything else is bad, broken, or boring.
If you have not had a lot of experience with Wii games, like you had missed some of the essential titles, that could be an interesting route. Probably not that neat of an option if you have been actively playing Wii for awhile, but the slightly better graphical appearance (compared to the standard video out option) does help a bit. Most of the time my TV had always looked glitchy when using the ancient type inputs.
I've only played a little bit of Mario 2D on the original Wii, so I'm planning to go Skyward Sword, Mario Galaxy, Twilight prince as my next titles after I finish Mario U (on the castle area now.....). I have trouble with the idea of purchasing re-releases, since the major ones on Wii U are way more expensive than they are available elsewhere and inferior to the already existing PC ports (e.g. Darksiders II for 60.... or $13 and a perfect frame rate, if your not super DLC aware).
@Sackmanjones: I wrote a review. (http://www.giantbomb.com/little-inferno/61-38828/user-reviews/?review_id=24751)
A quick summery would be it's the Wii U version of Journey.
@Zekhariah How do Wii games look on the Wii U, how much better are they. One other game that looked cool was Tank Tank Tank, is that any good?
Wii games are not upscaled on the Wii U.
From what I've read concerning Tank! Tank! Tank!, it should've been a $15 downloadable title. It's supposedly a fun enough concept, but it doesn't last long enough to justify its price point.
ZombiU is great... what you need to be into that kind of thing. I can totally being frustrated with it.
Littler Inferno is a great downloadable title.
Other than that, I'm more waiting on the titles I bought the Wii U for. Rayman Legends, Bayonetta 2, ect.
For me, I only have nintendo land and zombi u, however those are really great games. I'm interested in getting Tank! Tank! Tank! I would consider trine 2 and Little inferno, but I already own them on PC and I don't want to have redundant games on my wii u for the sake of wii u games. But, I would still highly recommend those games if you're interested.
