Wii U owners, how many eShop games do you own? (not counting VC games!!!) [poll]
1 (3/30 votes)
2 (4/30 votes)
3 (4/30 votes)
4 (4/30 votes)
5 (1/30 vote)
More than 5 (9/30 votes)
None (4/30 votes)
I don't own a Wii U! (1/30 vote)
I'm not counting VC games here, but original eShop games like Little Inferno, The Cave, etc. A list of the Wii U eShop games in our database.

Just curious to see how well the eShop is supported here.

Apparently I have 6 (Little Inferno, Nano Assault Neo, Trine 2, Chasing Aurora, The Cave, RUNNER2.) 7 if you count Zen Pinball 2 but considering that I only downloaded the free core package thing and never got around to playing it, I'm not counting that.

@VofEscaflowne I didn't actually vote in the poll yet, so I'll vote 4.

Dammit, I voted over 5 because I didn't see the VC thing.

Myy actual vote is 4:

Rayman Challenges App
Little Inferno
Nano Assault Neo
Trine 2

I would have Runner 2, but it's not out in Australia yet :(

Ten! Eleven if you count Rayman I guess.
Posted: 05/30/13, 06:13:50
None. Boo, small companies, woo huge disc people!
Posted: 05/30/13, 07:02:14
That's it, you're off my Alpha testers list.
Posted: 05/30/13, 07:08:40

Solid. Abandon part of the public.

Good luck!

@Mr_Mustache Well if he is making an indie game, he is probably most interested in the opinions of people who play them.

...speaking of, why don't you? I vaguely recall you explaining this, but I can't remember. It's kind of weird to me to draw this firm line in between retail and indie games. Especially when you consider that certain indie games are basically full-on productions from high quality teams.
Posted: 05/30/13, 09:54:19
Meh, one Mustache is nothing compared to the rest of the mustaches.

I am curious as well. Some of the best games I have played have been indie games.
Posted: 05/30/13, 10:05:58

Eh. A lot of them seem "blah" to me. And a bunch of the WiiWare stuff I DID download did NOT impress me. Definitely not as bonkers about That Water Game or Contra ReBirth. And thats Konami!

@Pokefreak911 and Zero

And part of marketing / testing is finding out WHY those people don't play those games, and trying to sell to them, too. Economics, who knew?!

Just Mighty Switch Force.

I guess I'm still warming up to eShop games in general. Last gen, I enjoyed World of Goo, Cave Story, and Fluidity well enough, but none of them enough to replay them. This gen, Gunman Clive, Aura-Aura, Photo Dojo, Shantae, Kersploosh and Plants Vs. Zombies were pretty good but again, none of those amazed me. My favorite downloadable game is actually PiCTOBiTS, which is pretty much a Nintendo series anyway. And for the Wii, Mega Man 9 was brilliant (and 10 was solid).

I'll probably get Shovel Knight though.

@Mr_Mustache Well, the major developers usually (but not always) throw their b-level teams at the digital download stuff, so I don't expect much out of Konami or whatever there either. Castlevania: The Adventure Rebirth from Konami is pretty awesome though, albeit tough as balls. And Mega Man 9 / 10 from Capcom were pretty awesome, and Nintendo has released tons of great stuff by this point... Art Style games, Pushmo / Crashmo, the Fluidity games ("that water game"? ha ha), Mario vs. DK stuff, etc.

Really though it is the indie developers that end up making the best stuff on these platforms.

@TriforceBun What about Pushmo / Crashmo, you have played those, right?

I've got six. Seven if you count the Rayman app, but six otherwise (Runner2, Little Inferno, Trine 2, Zen Pinball 2, Mighty Switch Force! HD, and Toki Tori 2).
Posted: 05/31/13, 00:26:32
None. Nothing has been released that has interested me so far.
