    It'd be nice to see Bayo 1 on the WiiU, but at the same time i'm just grateful that Nintendo are funding/publishing the sequel.

    I picked up Bayonetta on 360 only recently and feel it's one of the best action games of last gen, possibly the best action/slash game of last gen now i think of it.

    We've been over this before, Nintendo are essentially funding the game, allowing the game to exist. Platinum approached MS/Sony who didn't want to know, Nintendo decided to back the project.

    While Nintendo don't own the franchise they essentially own the publishing rights for this installment in the franchise. You won't be seeing it anywhere else because it's a Nintendo exclusive.

    Platinum are sick of being asked about it, not because they want to do it but because it's been clear from day one that the game will be and will stay a Wii U exclusive.

    Bayonetta 3 however could concievably come out on all depending on who's going to fnd the project that time.

    Bayonetta is the best game of its type fullstop. Devil May Cry, God of War, Ninja Gaiden - it bitch slaps them all :)

    Well I disagree on the Ninja Gaiden front - Nothing can touch that game. I never complete games twice and that I did twice and found all collectables on the second run.
    But yes Bayonetta was an amazing game and well worth playing.

    On the main menu of the Wii there's like 5 pages of blank squares. Is this just for games or can you download other things?

    Cheers ��:)
    Appears to have migrated them over, seemed a massive faff though, I feel more like my dad every day! IT professional during the week, just want things to work easily over the weekend.
    Edit AARGGH they appear for wiiu but are now missing for the original wiifit plus, that will give her another reason to moan I'm sure.
    Got a good rainforest firesale deal on this. The premium for 199 with 2 free games, zombiu and rayman (inc Nintendo land). Also I couldn't help myself and ordered mario3d and party also :)

    Lucky bugger enjoy ;)


    Just finished Mario last night and have to admit I'm almost let down, maybe because I've put so much time into Mario 3D land on the 3DS it didn't do anything new for me, when all is said and done it will be pretty low down on my list of Mario games.

    So tempted to pick one of these up for Mario, mario kart and zelda coming up next year.

    What else is worth buying and is there any deals floating about?

    I'm either bad at games or Luigi U is hard.

    I think I should have purchased normal Mario Bros U!

    Game pad thrown out the window!

    Personally i'd say ZombiU is well worth a look and can be picked up for nice and cheap.

    Yup - welcome to a world of frustration.

    You could always resort to the super guide if you get mega stuck.
