New Legend of Zelda
« on: February 13, 2016, 10:08:37 PM »
The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U is slated to come out at the end of this year and I'm stoked.

I'm wondering if getting Twilight Princess for the Wii U and its Wolf Link Amiibo will be worth it, in light of The amiibo function being able to carry over. I've got TP and Skyward Sword for the wii so its nothing new, I'm just wondering if the updated graphics and the figure is worth the 50 I'll end up paying for the game.

I wouldn't mind playing TP again and now that amazon prime members get 20% off of pre order games the expense isn't crazy, I'm just worried that the amiibo functionality still wont be there by the end of  the year. So far nothing with amiibo functionality has been all that great. The figures are amazing but they do very little to enhance the game, each figure ccan only work with one game. if you try to use it for two different games you've got to basically format the figure for the new game, losing any data from the old. There's some stuff coming out this march that will allow you to back up your amiibo so you can use it for multiple games but that seems like an added pain in the butt.

Just started thinking about the Wii U today as I was standing looking at xenoblade chronicles x at the local Walmart. This game might just influence me to consider a Wii U. With Zelda on the horizon I start my analysis with the investigation of what other games look good on the Wii U.

Right now anything Mario has been great. Toad didn't really do it for me but all the Mario games have been well worth the investment. I've always dug whatever RPG gets released on Nintendo and can see the amiibo becoming something awesome but it's just not there yet. Interactive gaming toys are huge and I really hope Nintendo gets this right as I could care less about them throwing their hat into the app arena. Amiibo and regaining favor with third party developers will make or break Nintendo.

With that being said the Wii U is completely skippable unless you just have to play every Mario game invented. It's small numbers and decent titles will most likely make it collectable at some point in the future and I'm betting since the remote control is an absolute have to have a good condition working unit will become rare more quickly than some of the other systems, so in that respect as a collector its probably worth while.

I still remember places blowing out the virtual boy and the turbo grafx 16 because  they just didn't catch on. Both are pretty hard to find now. The wii u has had more systems sold so i'm not saying it'll be like either of those but I do believe that with the NX's pending release the wii u will soon be abandoned and we'll be left with what few titles come out this year plus the handful of must haves.

I understand that the Wii U consoles were recalled by Nintendo before the Switch release. So if I do decide on one it will have to be used for sure.

I hate that Nintendo pulled stakes so quickly, although that may mean a spike in collectability..

I enjoyed being about to use all that crap I bought for my wii

I'm not really fond of Wii. Would a starter enjoy Wii for the first time they play it? Though I like playing Legends Of Zelda
