    The Third Party titles I'm getting on WiiU This year:

    In spite of some who tend to deliver only half-realized ports of their titles, there are still some titles on WiiU that I DO have interest in getting and will hold my purchase to:

    -Deus Ex: Human Revolution
    -ACIV
    -Rayman Legends
    -Watch Dogs
    -Splinter Cell Blacklist (minor omission)
    -The Wonderful 101 (sort of; it's a third party exclusive published by Nintendo)
    -Sonic Lost World (EXCLUSIVE!)
    -Batman Arkham Origins (the only title in my third party list that seems "gimped", but I'm still getting it for single player)

    Of these titles, W101 and Sonic Lost World may arguably be the best for Nintendo this year because of their exclusivity. Deus Ex is a wildcard, but at least SR is making this the definitive experience for WiiU. Splinter Cell Blacklist is still pretty much the same game, so it's a no-brainer (a minor omission not withstanding). Rayman Legends was meant to be for the WiiU. ACIV and Watch Dogs, so far, have no major omissions to speak of. So that's basically six out of eight titles that I'm purchasing that aren't "gimped" versions. (Blacklist hardly counts.)

    Eh, I'd probably choose other available versions for those. As for the exclusives, I think I'm gonna hold back on The Wonderful 101 for now, but Lost World looks damn good.

    Deus Ex, Watch Dogs, and Sonic Lost World for me. These are the main 3 games I am looking forward to on the Wii U period besides Mario Kart until Zelda Wii U is announced.

    Batman looks pretty good, but I want to go back and play Arkham City before I get the new one (and before that I wanna get COD, TTT2, and NFS MW).

    Pretty much Imma play used game catchup for a while

    to me from 3rd party will be w101, sonic and watch dogs

    I know Rayman will be great, but it lost it chance with me since I'll have many nintendo first party to buy, it'll be hard to have enough funds to all the gamming I'm interested in, actually, even DKCR has got my interested, I'm doomed ><

    Wonderful 101 is an absolute must for me. I'm running out of demo plays! Assassin's Creed IV is also on my interested list, along with Splinter Cell. Sonic just hasn't done anything for me as of yet, and for some reason I just haven't looked into Watch_Dogs.

    I've already purchased Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Resident Evil: Revelations this year, and I plan on picking up Rayman Legends, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and potentially Watch Dogs as well.

    Not really many for me this year. Wonderful 101 is a must, but other than that, I'll have my eyes on Watch Dogs and Batman and get them when i have the chance and they drop in price. AC4 I'll get after a large price drop. (which won't take long)

    Why is that? The GamePad support will severely trump the barely perceivable difference in graphics on the other platforms.

    I suppose for the online component? Nothing against the Wii U, but plain and simple, I think I'd prefer the other versions.

    Yeah, if you are really wanting the online, I can see getting the ones that don't support it on other platforms that do. For the games listed, I don't care much about that feature, though.

    The only thing for sure (preordered) on my list is Skylanders. . .

    For Christmas I'll be adding some to my wishlist (Batman, AC4, Watch Dogs, W101, etc.)

    And I have already purchased this year:

    If that is not trying to encourage the third parties, I don't know what is......

    Well it's good to see that people here haven't totally given up on third party titles for WiiU. I never did, even though I agree that the stupid actions of several companies has been detestable.

    At one point I've owned/still own:
    Tekken Tag Tournament 2
    Injustice Gods Among Us
    Need For Speed Most Wanted
    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    Call of Duty Black Ops 2
    Resident Evil Revelations
    Splinter Cell Blacklist
    Mass Effect 3 Special Edition
    Assassins Creed 3
    ZombiU
    Scribblenauts Unlimited
    Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor's Edge

    I think I've pulled my weight.


    As for future purchases coming out this year, it's going to be Sonic, W101 (probably not day one, but will eventually pick it up), Watch_Dogs, Deus Ex (depends on when it comes out), and a very slim chance of CoD Ghost Dog. The only game I'm getting a different console is Batman, mainly because of the exclusive content and I like keeping my series on the same platform as I own the first two Arkham games on PS3.

    Why is Need for Speed Most Wanted so expensive? Everywhere I go it's anywhere from £37.99 to £54.99.

    Picking up Sonic Lost Worlds, Deus Ex, Watchdogs, CoD: Ghost Dog and I don't know if you can count Mario and Sonic and the Sochi Olympics but I'll be getting that as well. I don't know about Rayman. I liked the free app but I really only played it for a few days so I eventually I might. I'll be picking up Dungeons and Dragons next month. I have a bunch of third parties already released this year and I am sure I will be buying more than those before the year is up.
