The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Out Today for Wii U

Mar 22, 2013 - 12:34 PM - by Maura

Wii U-owning fans of the smash-hit, Emmy Award-winning TV series, The Walking Dead, will be wanting to shuffle down to their local games emporium today, as Activisionís Wii U game based on the hit show has just been released. The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct features the crossbow-wielding Daryl Dixon, played by Norman Reedus, and his brother Merle, played by Michael Rooker, on an unforgiving adventure through the walker-infested Georgia countryside. With both actors reprising their TV roles in the game, developer Terminal Reality shows its commitment to delivering a gaming experience that stays true to the characters, tone, and storyline of the TV show. The gameplay is very much first-person survival of the fittest, as players scrounge for food, water and ammunition in order to survive against both living and dead nightmares. The story takes place before the events of the TV show, as the brothers try to reach the supposedly safe city of Atlanta, amidst apocalyptic chaos. Once again, great to see that the Wii U gets a version of this game, along with the PS3 and Xbox games.

Need For Speed Most Wanted U Out Now For Wii U

Mar 20, 2013 - 2:04 PM - by Maura

EA’s Need for Speed Most Wanted U hits stores in North America today and in Europe on Friday, March 22, delivering a driving game experience that was specifically built for Nintendo’s newest console, making this version of EA and Criterion’s game more fun, more social, and more interactive than ever.

Rob O’Farrell, Executive Producer said, “At Criterion Games, we really took the time to learn and understand the Wii U. When creating Need for Speed Most Wanted U, we wanted to maximize the console’s power to deliver an immediately fun and accessible racing experience. We are very proud of the end result.”
As you might expect, many of the game’s Wii U-exclusive features are based around the Wii U’s GamePad controller. For example, the local co-op mode, Co-Driver, enables one player to drive using the Wii Remote controller or the Wii U Pro Controller, while another player uses the Wii U GamePad to support with control and navigation assistance via an interactive real-time map. This player can use just their fingertips on the touchscreen to distract chasing cops, switch from night to day, or turn on enhanced performance for any of the vehicles, or even control the amount of traffic on the road. Players can also switch into their favourite cars, track milestones, uncover the hidden gems of the city, and much more, all via the touchscreen. The entire game is also playable off-screen on the Wii U GamePad.

Other editions to the Wii U version of the game are the inclusion of the complete Ultimate Speed Pack expansion, giving the player the chance to drive five of the fastest cars in the universe, including the Lamborghini Aventador J, and the Paganini Zonda R.
