Around the web
  • GirlGamer

    Good for Nintendo, Exciting for gamers!

  • swic11

    not my cup of tea, but its good to see some 3rd party exclusives

    • PridgMSS

      Your comment reminds me of the Wii…
      (shovelware

      • TheBoldman67

        The Wii did have a LOT of shovelware, but there still a lot of good games too, and people don’t be hating me. You know it’s true (although this guy did stretch the truth a bit too much)

    • Ultimate Cheez

      Yea I hope more hardcore games come to the wii u like I am alive and battlefield and halo even though I hate that game but more hard core games the wii couldn’t have AND BETTER MARIO GAMES

      • RichxGlov

        Halo will NEVER be on a Nintendo console; how can you hate Halo? I think it’s a very unique FPS. :3

        • jat

          unique and fps used in the same sentence!?! I thought i would never see that happen

          • EvanescentHero

            TF2 is a very unique FPS. There, I did it!

          • ninjabake

            Bulletstorm, Bioshock and Team Fortress are the shining jewels when it comes to unique fun gameplay in a FPS. Too bad none of those(sans maybe bioshock) really ever get the praise and hype many other shooters get, oh well they’re all really fun games. And fun factor is the single most important factor for me

        • AO1JMM

          He did use the word “like” for a reason. It wasn’t meant to be taken literally.

        • Mechadestroyah

          There was a halo game for the DS

          • Paul

            sorry but halo is a no go since its a microsoft title just like gran turismo for playstation

          • Amtoj

            Wow…Google it, Bungie really was planning for it!

        • TheBoldman67

          That is unless of course Nintendo and Microsoft partner up.

      • TheBoldman67

        I don’t know I think we got some pretty bad ass (meaning awesome) Mario games this generation. Just look at Galaxy 2 (critics rated 10 out of 10)

  • TFGuy

    I want Transformers Fall of Cybertron for the Wii U. Not this thing……

    • D2K

      Yeah. Me too. There is a lot of potential cool use of the U-Pad in that game. It could still be coming along with this game.

      • alex

        Halo is over rating killzone in ps3 is way beater and if nintendo make metroid more action and mature it,will kill halo

        • AO1JMM

          They are both over rated but I still enjoy playing them both.

  • GirlGamer

    This sounds exciting, but the real prob is…
    HOW THE GRAPHICS WILL BE LIKE. Like this comment if you agree guys. Thanks

    • PridgMSS

      Does this place look like Youtube to you?

      • Kamon

        I think he thinks it’s Facey-book.

    • Macarony64

      do ppl still bugging about graphics the only thing i care 4 this game is the game play hope is not bad like the first 1 on wii and not all games are going to be realistic look at the bloob 2 4 xbox 360 it looked amaising whit out having realistic graphics

      • PridgMSS

        I think you’re confused. Art Style ≠ Good/Bad Graphics

        • Macarony64

          bad graphic or art style can be used in interchage has they both refer to the visual .graphics refers to the whole picture including color ,shadow ,particles and even light while art style is referst to the shape the game have of those elements. a tree 4 zelda wind waker is has beutyfull has a tree from crysis the diference is art style

    • BananaPwnz

      All you people care about these days is GRAPHICS! There’s more to games than graphics GirlGamer…

    • *Sigh*

      That’s not the problem at all. We want to see what the gameplay is like.
      And why wasn’t the “like if you agree” comment put in the rules, Wii U Daily? No one wants to see it. This isn’t a gathering of desperate YouTubers.

      • Ted The PRO BRO

        OMG HAHA, you guys thought that it really was GirlGamer commenting! Haaa. It was me because i wanted to take revenge on her for saying she doesn’t love me! Now she’s bad in front of everyone’s eyes!!! Dont blame her it was me,no actually blame her that’s what my revenge is all about★ Anyway to see our fight go onto new super mario bros U. But the first comment is hers but all the others is mine. What a mastermind I am
        muahhaa

        • Macarony64

          and i now know why

          • u mad bro

            you know why GirlGamer doesn’t want cause she’s with me sucka! nah just joking, but she does sound like an interesting specimen ‹/3

        • TheBoldman67

          Ummm… that’s just pethetic.

  • GirlGamer

    Bumblebee is cool but optimus prime is Outstanding bro Outstanding.BTW how is swic11′s comment first when I posted First. Not fair wii u daily, not fair at all, but it’s O.k.

    • PridgMSS

      It is outstanding to find out that people still abbreviate “ok”.

  • Dmonkeyman

    the last transformers game i played on a Nintendo console was pretty bad hopeful this will be better

  • GirlGamer

    No problem, It was all a misunderstanding. Anyway I am not that serious about being first or second, I just post my thoughts. Either Way I was wrong! It turns out i am first, but i don’t care

    • *Sigh*x2

      If you didn’t care, why did you complain about not being first? And didn’t it say to stop doing that in the comment rules article?
      Stop trying to win this imaginary popularity contest you’re having.

  • derty

    Lol that was the wackest trailer for a game since Toni tori 2 XD
    Terrible, just terrible.

  • derty

    *toki :p

  • NiNtEnDoLoVeR

    Activision :$ I dislike this compagny like EA. they ruined Goldeneye…why they didn’t put the original music!!!!

    • PridgMSS

      Transformers Prime the Game is based on Transformers Prime, which is a kid’s show.

      • SH*TBLOCK

        Actually it is on the Hub and saying that this show is a kids show is just wrong. I am a grown man that loves all kinds of cartoons, so I know about 85% of the cartoons ever, who also happened to do some voice-overs. There is a another Transformers show on the Hub called “Transformers Rescue Bots” now that is based to pre-teens for sure. “Transformers Prime” has a adult look with computer based design artwork (like cinematics for video games do) and not a hand-drawn kiddie look. The cartoon has great affects, a great story, and some very cool and updated characters. I would say to anyone to watch this adaptation of the Transformers cartoon, it is a cool one for sure.

        • Macarony64

          aww i wish exo squad would return that cartoon was great

          • SH*TBLOCK

            hahaha it was good and cut short, now like a cult classic. it was like a smaller scale Battlestar Galactica…

  • NoPUNintendo

    I’ve always did love Transformers. Mostly the older ones. This does look pretty good actually. I would love to see some gameplay footage. I couldn’t care about the graphics. Although it could WOW some people into getting a Wii U, I’d just prefer this game to be about fun. I really do hope, they make some games based off the older series.

  • TheUNation

    If they have the voices of Peter Cullen and Frank Welker in that game, I’m renting it.

    • D2K

      I can almost guarantee Cullen will be in the game, but Welker is hit or miss. He probably has more gigs to do that Cullen as Welker does pretty much any voice and sound effect known to man.

  • SehxualPanda

    can we get some Beast Wars for the Wii U?

  • Dmonkeyman

    I think the trailer is good for catching the target audience of the game which is 7-10 years old

  • kidnintend

    1 thing worries me about wii u is i always see people say graphics arent everything and i agree and that goes wit out sayin for nintendos developers but more power always brings better ai and more things on screen so what happens to third party devs when they r improvin their ai and amout of things on screen. will they just not make a wii u game or make a crappy port. also with better ai comes betters games too it just doesnt have to about visuals. do u all think the wii u wil have a enough power for better ai and more things on screen when the next xbox and ps come out? but i will buy a wii u regardless day 1 with atleast 4 games.

    • kidnintend

      basically wandering if it will compete on those terms with next gen xbox and ps.

      • Captain Potato

        It all depends if third parties decide to invest their time and money to make a unique, bold, and daring experience on the Wii U instead of playing it safe and just porting an XBOX 360/PS3 pancake and adding syrup and butter! I hope they find a viable reason to invest or even jump ship to the Wii U, but that will come with time…hopefully?

        • kidnintend

          yea i hope i cant wait to get my hands on a wii u and have plenty of great support from third parties.

  • maxlazy10

    Not what I’d want, but the more games the merrier!

  • SH*TBLOCK

    For those who have said that they would rather have the new Transformers game “Fall Of Cybertron” brought to the WiiU I am in agreeance with you
    to a point. I do think this game is a great game and should have at least be ported to the WiiU. I have played the demo and the 1st game in the series and think they’re great games for sure. That being said having an exclusive game based on the new Transformers cartoon series is a good thing as well. Please read the comment I made about that below now and come back to this. I hope this new game isn’t childish and has a strong story and game-play. I would have to see more from this game before I would pre-order it and I feel if it comes close to the cartoon I would buy it, if not then it is a rent only, and wait for the port to come to the WiiU.

    This is what I put as a reply to another’s comment;
    Actually it is on the Hub and saying that this show is a kids show is just wrong. I am a grown man that loves all kinds of cartoons, so I know about 85% of the cartoons ever, who also happened to do some voice-overs.

    • Quad

      I perfer the hand drawn look not the 3D look. Shows like young justice and the legend of korra are way better then Transformers Prime.

      • SH*TBLOCK

        Oh I watch them too and like them, but I think for Transformers, the 3D feel from computers seems more like them…

        • Quad

          yeah i guess your right.

        • Quad

          oh wait i foregot my little pony friendship is magic is also up there but i guess your right the cgi look is good for the transformers.

  • SteampunkJedi

    If the gameplay is good, then the game should be good. I’ll wait till we see the gameplay before I decide if this game’s for me.

  • Riku

    If anyone notice this trailer is a wii video not the wii u.

    • SH*TBLOCK

      Yeah your right, said everything Nintendo except WiiU BUT they haven’t announced some games for the WiiU yet, and that would make this game be just a late comer to the Wii and won’t get as many sales as it would if it came out earlier in the year for the Wii. I hope they do have a WiiU version and it is a good game too…

  • GirlGamer

    Some of you guys are wanting to fight with me. Just Be Quite And Leave Me Alone! I GOT CONFUSED PEOPLE, WHAT I MENT TO SAY WAS GAMEPLAY YOU PEOPLE. Don’t Judge People Before You Get To Know Them, Same here with my comment or anyone else’s

  • Diogozaca

    Sorry but the graphics and the presentation are just horribles, not a TEASER at all. And… it’s for the WII not WII U.

  • Superobed

    If it plays like fall of cybertron i’m all in

  • Quad

    This game is going to be crap….. here comes the dislikes.

  • Arsonist Monkey

    With this, I’m going to remake Lemon Demons Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny!
