Destiny on Wii U, and the appalling comments on the Bungie forums.

So there I was doing some internet browsing, looking up Bungie’s next project Destiny and the possibility of the game being developed for the Wii U. And what better way to get some information/answers, head straight to the horses mouth.

It turns out that a forum poster that goes by the name SurprisedRICK had asked the very same question. “Why no Destiny for Wii U?” In the forum post at hand, there are some reasonable answers, (possible no mention of Wii U development because of the current low install base) and some not reasonable answers, (Nintendo can’t do online).

Funny because I can play Splinter Cell: Blacklist online on the Wii U (a Nintendo product) and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate online without real issues. The odd Blacklist teething problem, but nothing a patch won’t fix. Like most games, they have bugs.

Most try and debunk the Wii U as childish, gay and for noobs, whilst others (kids probably not old enough to shave) bang on about the Playstation 4 and Xbox One being it. Yes they are the it, the buzzwords of the moment if you’re a fan of Sony or Microsoft. But what about fans who game the Nintendo way? Have they not got the right to ask, and get an answer without being called all things derogatory.

Yes we know it’s fanboy banter that gets too close to the knuckle, but on an official forum, this stuff should be moderated, do you not think?

So Bungie, are you planning to bring Destiny to the Wii U, a simple yes or no will suffice.

What do you, the gamer think about Splinter Cell?

So the honoured press, be it multi-billion conglomerates or small-time online resources have taken to Ubisoft’s biggest ever Splinter Cell game like a terrorist takes to killing. But what do you the Nintendo players think of the game? Good, bad, okay.

Even without the offline co-op mode, have you invested in Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

Personally Ubisoft Shanghai have done themselves proud, much like FarCry 3, Blood Dragon and the Rainbow Six games of old.

What’s the problem with online multiplayer on Wii U?

What’s the problem with online multiplayer on Wii U?

Developer laziness or is there something sadly wrong with Nintendo’s networking infrastructure? They/Nintendo struggled getting to grips with the high definition transition, (1st party content.) Are they/Nintendo now struggling to build a compelling online infrastructure for 3rd party developers to easily port/build full games for the Wii U.

I would love to know what’s going? And I’m sure so would you, my fellow Nintendo fans.

Share your thoughts, as to why games like Sniper Elite: V2, Batman: Arkham Origins and now How To Survive, a lush looking zombie survival game, based on a South American archipelago is going to miss/lack online multiplayer features on the Wii U.

Setting games up to fail on the Wii U from the outset.
