    Man, I thought the Wii-U was DOA since it's launch. Then there was Mario Kart 8, which piqued my interest. But I was totally unprepared for them to dominate E3 the way they did. They still are lacking some of the multiplatform games I want (Destiny, and I doubt they'll get Mass Effect 4 or Dragon Age 3)...but now they've got an actual library of interesting-looking games on the way...imagine that?

    A teaser, but an exciting one:



    One of the most creative departures from the increasingly-formulaic multiplayer shooters out there, with some very unique mechanics:

    A follow-up to the most highly-rated RPG of the Wii:



    A darned fun-looking platformer:

    And for a company that normally has poor third-party dev support, I have no idea how they got Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive title:



    And it's not going to be the only "mature"-rated game for the platform:

    Yeah Nintendo won E3. Good for them. About time the Wii U got a decent, dare I say great, games catalog.

    This means I might have to break my Wii-U out of the junk drawer and hope it still works. It may have collected enough dust to malfunction.

    Don't forget Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or The Legend of Zelda Wii U! :hi2: Nintendo also managed to snag Bayonetta 2 as an exclusive. Dang, now I may have to get the Wii U after all...

    Let's see......I'll be getting Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros. (on both 3DS and Wii U), Splatoon, Xenoblade Chronicles: X, Zelda, probably Devil's Third as well......am I missing anything. Oh yeah, Yoshi's Woolly World. So nearly every title announced for the Wii U this year is on my purchase list. That's quite a lot compared to GTA 5 and Destiny for my PS4.

    I think Splatoon is the title that I'm looking forward to the most, after Super Smash Bros., of course. I'm not a fan of playing shooters online at all, but I think Splatoon will be an exception. It looks like it'll be quite fun.

    Wii U is the only console worth getting for a PC gamer 'cause it has the games and experiences that are actually unique and which we can't get on our platform of choice. PS4 and Xbone are just more of the same as PC, only inferior in all aspects.
