I'm hoping for a must buy Zelda title to appear on the Wii u. That way ill simply have to buy one. I would also love to invest in the GTA franchise again, if it goes back to its fun roots somewhat. And if there's a dark souls 2 coming out I would be all over that like a rash.

Tomb Raider: a Survivor is Born (PC)
Sonic & All-Stars: Transformed (PC)
Aliens: Coloniel Marines (PC)

and maybe GTA V? I just seem to have tired of the GTA and Saints games lately. GTA V may pull me back in though.

Yeah, that's the first game that came to mind when i first saw the Wii U's controller. If they don't rush it i reckon it could work really well.

I've seen Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed is currently available to pre-purchase (digital download) for PC/Steam for only £13.50. I'm sorely tempted to get it at that price but are trying to resist as I want the Wii U version instead. I've been informed the Wii U version comes with more content as standard than the PS360 version and presumably the PC version too. Also, I quite like the thought of its Gamepad integration of using the screen to aim/direct weapons... and being able to play it in on the Gamepad exclusively. However, the current cheapest price is a shade under £30 which I point blank refuse to pay when the PC version (digital download) has an SRP of £19.99 and the earlier released PS360 versions can now be picked up for only £14.99. Must have patience! :lol:

As for Aliens: Colonial Marines on Wii U, I just hope they don't lazily bolt-on Gamepad integration as a lazily implemented uninspired afterthought. If it's just a case of having to look down at the Gamepad screen at an inventory or radar detection screen then I'll probably snag the technically superior PC version instead. If using the Gamepad as a radar detection device like in the Aliens movies is well thought out and ably implemented then it could add significant tension to the gameplay. If it's done in a half-arsed way then it'll serve to detract from the gameplay and make the game frustrating to play relative to having the on-TV-screen radar detection device the PC/PS360 versions have.

Not really interested in the big blockbuster titles like GTA V, Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider etc. Gears of War Judgement looks pretty cool though, I'm more interested in these....

Phantasy Star Online 2 - I will buy a PS VIta for this!

Kingdom Under Fire 2 - Haven't heard much about this for a while. last i heard it may be PC exclusive :( KUF on the XBOX was awesome. KUF Circle of Doom however was horrible on XBOX 360

Project X Zone - this might get me playing my 3DS again if ever it comes out here :?

Bayonetta 2 - I love that Platinum are supporting the new tech but c'mon guys, i can only have so many consoles under my telly!

otherwise im looking to expand my JP & US PS2 collection... oh and actually playing some games i own

Battlefield 4 and GTA5 - I do hope they're doing the different covers for the boxes as there is one I really like!

Completely forgot about PSO2. I would be happy to pay a subscription fee for a chance to play it!
I'm somewhat doubtful about Project X Zone ever seeing the light of day here. Way too many obscure anime characters from franchises unknown here for it to have widespread appeal.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

Tomb Raider interests me as well...in the past when it's been good, it's been excellent. If it's one of the mediocre ones or simply more of the same I won't bother so will wait for feedback. GTA is one I will likely buy immediately like I did with Far Cry 3
