So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

I'm in Australia, so I pre-ordered at a local JB Hi-Fi store (which is like America's Best Buy, I think?).

I have a few friends working at JB Hi-Fi so that's why I usually go to them.

JB's usually cheaper compared to other stores than best buy is.

Its been confirmed you have to have a origins account to play EA games on the Wii U

" the company explains, "If you sign up to play EA games through a Nintendo Wii U console, your Nintendo account information will be provided to EA so that we can establish an Origin Account for you.

"You need an Origin Account to play EA’s titles online.

"By signing up to play EA’s titles, you agree that limited user account information can be transferred to EA. Information transferred to EA includes your Mii information, email address, Nintendo Network ID, friend list, country, language and date of birth but does not include credit card number or other financial account information."

This brings EA's attitude to the Wii U in line with the Xbox 360 and PS3, as owners of those consoles currently face the same rules when playing games such as Mass Effect"

Yeah pretty shitty, but that's how it is on 360 and PS3 too.

That's why i don't play any EA games on console anymore.
On the PC at least you can get no-origin cracks, but i'll be damned if i'll ever use that 'service'.

You know, i'm starting to get the impression the WiiU is going to win this generation. Remember how much the 360 ruined the PS3 simply because it launched earlier and got a market share?
Microsoft have yet to release shit about the next xbox and the PS4 won't be out until at least 2014. So basically the only company to have even officially announced a new console is Nintendo, who are currently taking pre-orders at a good price and creating artificial demand to get the same magic as the original Wii launch where people would stab each other for one.

I couldn't believe i was actually tempted to put a pre-order on the WiiU when i picked up Horizon today. I had to stop myself.

Unless Microsoft really quickly announce the name and a tentative date for the 720/durango, everyone's gonna grab a WiiU and never even bother to look at the other consoles.

I can see the correlation you make here but you gotta understand even taking exclusives out of the picture the WiiU is about or just slightly more powerful than a xbox 360. The new xbox will have a lot more power to push when it comes out and people will naturally flock to it over the Wii U

If you asked me a week ago if I wanted a Wii U I'd say no. However, after getting a 3DS I'm in love with the first-party franchises. I might have to get a Wii U, now.

what happened to Nintento that I have absolutely zero interest in a new console launch ? Sad

why can't they just make a normal console, with better mario 64's, zeldas, metroids, donkey kongs, diddy kong racings, etc.

sigh

i watched the preview for the new super mario game and it looks identical to the one on wii vanilla

Nintendo was always my favorite.

LOL at Nintendo haters. People have been hating on Nintendo since the Sega Genesis. People hate, Nintendo stays humble and continues to sell and do just fine, it's the way it's always been.

So go ahead and say the Wii U is garbage, nobody cares.

Yup, we're currently trying to decide between a WiiU or two DS's.

Honestly I think your boys will get more mileage on the DS, especially when it comes to car trips, holidays, etc. The Wii U is just something for them to fight over.

In the end, you could buy them two original-model 3DS...es before spending as much as you would on the Wii U this year.

Now, if this is one of those "we'll get the kids this and then I'LL have fun playing with Daniel online" then definitely go with the Wii U.

Haha, I actually just got shot down on the WiiU last night because of "car trips". We're currently looking for DS Lites. But I'm feeling lazy this Sunday and lack the motivation to find good onesand find them at a good price.

calm down girl. i never said i hate nintendo i just don't like where they've gone with their product and a lot of people don't.

strong fanboyism.

Nintendo is my favorite, TBH, I just for the first time have no interest in their newest console, Wii 1 1/4

hopefully it's epic and i'm wrong and i go out and buy one.

^ I'm with you. I'm a little more interested in the 3DS than I am with the WiiU. But I'm pretty disinterested in both. And I loved Nintendo.

I've barely played my 3Ds... I've got a few games for it. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (which is TERRIBLE), The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (which I liked) and Resident Evil: Revelations... which is good, but I'm failing to get into it.

I'm annoyed as crap that Nintendo released the 3Ds XL... furthermore, annoyed that it still doesn't have an inbuilt right analog stick.

Honestly those games suck compared to some of what's available on 3DS now.
