PlayBoxie has tailored its HTML service for different platforms — PC, PS4, Xbox One, and now, the Wii U as well. The new Wii U update allows players to enjoy free HTML5 games on the GamePad or the TV. You can check out the full lineup of HTML5 games on playboxie.com. Just visit the link in your Wii U browser and you’re ready to go. Or you can do it on your PC and try out the games as well. local_offer html5 Nintendo wii u wii u browser stars Further Reading Switch vs Wii U game case size comparison Miyamoto dismisses the Wii U as a “nece 6 reasons to grab a Nintendo Switch before March 6 reasons to skip the Nintendo Switch for now Nintendo Switch Amazon Pre-Order Watch the Nintendo Switch reveal live! Vinicius It lags a lot Saul Rivera Not only does it lag but it has difficulty using your gamepad…but let’s hope this all gets better later on..since it’s nice to have some free games to play linkzero65 omg that is soooooooooooo COOOOL Simon Stevens Thanks for this 🙂 this right here is good news, I’m sure the service will only get better with time Daniel Gonzalez It was a good move. HTML5 is coming along fine. Simon Stevens This is true, though flash would still have gotten my vote jjbredesen Nah, HTML 5 is the future, more and more of the web, is moving away from flash, it is to slow and resource consuming. In 10 years everyone will have forgotten about flash.. Daniel Gonzalez Plus the fact that Flash needs a plugin to function in browsers. HTML5 saves you the trouble. It’s much more convenient, and has more upside in the future. jjbredesen Yeah. and it is super easy to learn to code, since you sort of have everything you need in your browser, and the whole web uses it. Magnus Eriksson But no movies are in HTML, theyre all in Flash. Daniel Gonzalez There are quite a bit in HTML5, but yes you are correct. However, HTML5 is growing in popularity and flash will be phased out year by year. jjbredesen Yes they are i use this instead of flash all the time, mush faster! IGN’s video player and a lot of others are moving over to HTML5 now. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/html5-video-for-youtube/dolajcekhnohkpncmhgledbmndjpblei Daniel Gonzalez Even Youtube is making the jump. They have the option of HTML5 just recently. jjbredesen Yup, not that suprising as google sort of owns the web XD, and are one of the leading companies within this area, don’t like what they did to youtube, but since they make android i am ok with them. Also adding a video in html is super easy all you need is; Your browser does not support the video tag. All you need to do is write how big the demensions are, where the movie is in the src (shrort for source) section and your ready to go, its a lot more simple than using flash. Simon Stevens the future yes, doesn’t help us much in the present though, there’s been certain pornos that looked so good! but alas, thar be no flash 🙁 jjbredesen Yeah, but the future is now! I am sure, that there will never be a console that supports it, as next gen there will be no such thing, so just use pornhub, works great on Wii U 😉 Magnus Eriksson LOL! Why Wiiudaily hasnt written an article about watching porn on the pad yet? 😀 Your Wii Porn U guide! Also with an extra article for experimental use of the Wii Motion Rumble effect. jjbredesen lol! Yup, John Kingsley’s WiipornU guide, will be ouit soon XD, also don’t forget about the 3DPornS 😉 I wonder if you can use the balance board to? SP-937-215 The balance board? “Now hold your Wii remote and nunchuk in front of your body at waist level and pump your hips from back to front. Try to stay within the pink line for extra points!” Logan Wayman Does this mean BTD5 on the Wii U? CP9Kaku I know this sounds off-topic, but I just got an Xbox One today as it is my birthday. So far, it is a lot of fun with the voice commands and hand gestures, I yet to see how the games turn out. I am downloading one right now. I already have a Wii U and I plan on eventually getting a PS4. I chose an Xbox One over the PS4 because none of the games really interest me right now. Hopefully the next Little Big Planet won’t suck like LBP Karting apparently did. MachoMadness Not only does this sound off topic, it is off topic. I sentence you to bukkake. Daniel Gonzalez Oh man. Simon Stevens splat CP9Kaku What I meant to say was that I WAS off-topic. There is so many fan boys, Sony, Microsoft and even Nintendo, who seem to hate the prospect of having tastes for different consoles. I love Nintendo, they are my favourite game and console manufacturer, but that doesn’t mean I can’t play some Infamous from time to time. If you can’t accept that there is people who are like that, then that’s one of your problems. Superstick98 I can probably understand why you chose the Xbox One. It has better exclusives and stuff. Like Killer Instinct and Titanfall. I prefer the PS4 but it’s good that you chose your preferred system. Especially since you’re getting a PS4 later. 😉 CP9Kaku I’m glad there is people like you who can tolerate other people liking different consoles. John Andalora Eh, different strokes, different folks. Cartune Can I watch porn with this…. HTML 5 browser? NintendoNoob Yes, trust me… I tried xD bizzy gie Yes. You’re very limited, but yes. Deadpool U You didn’t hear this from me but yes but remember you didn’t hear this from me. Gamer Mania I think I heard it from you Deadpool U Impossible! I’ve been riding a rocket this whole time! http://i.imgur.com/1Ve8VMk.gif Daniel Gonzalez You look bored on it. Guest Looks like he is having a orga…. XD Magnus Eriksson Yeah, it kind of remind me of the Breaking Bad actor who tried the Wii U. Simon Stevens He looked supremely unimpressed, as did Wayne Brady when he did the Wii U advert….. god awful Skelterz http://www.p4rgaming.com/satoru-iwata-says-he-was-drunk-during-nintendos-investor-meeting/ Skelterz if you want a giggle read this. http://www.p4rgaming.com/satoru-iwata-says-he-was-drunk-during-nintendos-investor-meeting/ Mario What are you Deadpool? Four? Deadpool U No! Yes! Maybe! Um clever distraction! http://static2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121119212852/gravityfalls/images/a/a7/S1e11_SMOKEBOMB.gif Mario …I know you’re still there. triplegamer3K . Ok.I didn’t hear it from you. (I read it from you) XD Magnus Eriksson Watching porn on the pad is its only usage. Nintendo should rebrand the Wii U to be a Off-TV porn machine. jjbredesen This makes me want porn in 3D on 3DS…. Skelterz Here’s the truth.http://www.p4rgaming.com/satoru-iwata-says-he-was-drunk-during-nintendos-investor-meeting/ jjbredesen What?? Is that real????? If it is, i don’t know what to say XD Skelterz HAHAHA thtat’s the real news my friend i should be posting articles on wii u daily!! SP-937-215 I don’t understand why this hasn’t happened yet. jjbredesen You can download 3D images, so i think it has happened? SP-937-215 But… video… jjbredesen It can film in 3D 😛 SP-937-215 Best porn studio evar, lol Simon Stevens once again Magnus, you are not wrong, xhamster, hd porn :’) it’s what the console is for Magnus Eriksson Its only purpose 🙂 Simon Stevens That and youtube (when it wants to work properly), wish the Wii U had an adblock though, them porno ads Shota XD Nintendofreak I use my wiiu browser for porn just like 98% percent of the time u.u jjbredesen Yeah. but it is better on 3DS, because its in 3D! RyuNoHadouken yeah, because thats what I bought the console for…smh HungryMetroid it’s still nice to have the option bizzy gie I use my browser 90% of the time (I’m on it right now). Mainly because I don’t have a computer. Joey LOL don’t have a computer, heh bizzy gie Nope. Had a netbook, but it messed up for whatever reason. jjbredesen wow, i have like 7 computers that i don’t need XD, you can have them all.. Skelterz Cool i spose but i don’t really play browser based games. Marcus Larsson Oh look My wii u got some games Deadpool U My has had games for a long time this must be something wrong with yours or you. Marcus Larsson Naw only good game i’ve played on my wii u is smw3d, zombieu and batman arkham origins Deadpool U You obviously don’t own many games. Marcus Larsson Wii u obviously wasnt the gamepacked console i was hoping for Deadpool U You obviously don’t know about all the great Wii U games. Superstick98 XD XD Marcus Larsson Then why isnt it selling? 😉 Deadpool U Because Nintendo needs a better marketing department. Marcus Larsson Finally something we agree on Superstick98 Obvious troll. XD Marcus Larsson No a bitter wii u owner Magnus Eriksson Yeah, Wii U is getting better and better. Nintendomination have begun. Lusunup there was an update for the browser? when? lonewolf88 omg that means i can play runescape and other html5 rpgs on it. bizzy gie Bookmarked. Thank you. darkcreap Talk about slow news days… Not just at WiiU daily, but about WiiU in general. Man, we need some announcements. NintendoFan Cool! Nathan C. YES! I can play Super Smash Flash 2 on my Wi… Oh wait…dang it. LopsidedPasta Is it just me, or has there been like, no notable gaming news in a while? Like, for any console? It seems like the entire industry is taking a time out right now. I want news! FutureFox They’re too busy spending 3 – 5 years in development bringing you the best experience possible. Go HD 3D 60 FPS graphics w/ DLC! The Clockwork Being Yeah the biggest news recently was Sonic and thats it! C4 January announcement, fall release. Boom. Why can’t Nintendo do something like that for Wii U. They really should have prepared better to create momentum. Now it’s even more difficult. Sonic the Hedgehog Although I recommend that my game is released WAY after the Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros games for the Wii U. These games can help Wii U sales by a HUGE margin. That can help increase sales of my Sonic Boom games too! Jack5221 Other than Pokemon Bank FINALLY being released, and a few new screenshots of Smash Bros nothing is really going on. :-/ You’d think that by now we would have a Nintendo Direct, but so far… nothing. I feel just as bored! I need something to get excited about!! Shota i’m waiting for a wii u animation app. and a yugioh game for wiiu. well maybe it will never happen:( GamersTreeHouse2013 A Yugioh game on the Wii U would be awesome 😀 Would go hand in glove with the gamepad Shota wii u gampad with a duel disk accessory. grip for arm and see your card deck and info on the gamepad and summon on the gamepad while tv shows the monsters 🙂 . wii had this http://www.aeropause.com/wordpress/archives/images/2010/09/yugioh-scanner.jpg , i hope wii u have something familiar Skelterz http://www.p4rgaming.com/satoru-iwata-says-he-was-drunk-during-nintendos-investor-meeting/ Shota lol XD that site Skelterz HAHAHA jjbredesen Agreed, i would give anything for a Nintendo Direct, now i guess Reggie and Iwata are still not done with the vodkas…. Magnus Eriksson Nah, they are on rehab. Getting treatment for alcoholism and cocaine addiction. But they’ll soon back. As soon theyre out again theyll probably start over where they left. Iwata, Reggie and Miyamoto wont stop until they have used all Nintendo’s assets on prostitutes, drugs and drinks. They will soon be there though – please understand – be patient. jjbredesen Yup, i am still waiting for them to bring back the love hotels… sadly i can’t bring them back, as only this account got unbanned, all other accounts on my IP’s are banned… sorry I also am unable to upvote comments, for some weird reason so don’t get offended if i don’t upvote you 😉 Arthur Jarret Hmm – love hotels… I would’ve picked the nurse’s office instead of the mission to mars if I was Logan… Anyway – love hotels were the least of nintendo’s vices: http://kotaku.com/5784314/the-nintendo-theyve-tried-to-forget-gambling-gangsters-and-love-hotels FYI – I know I still have to make a photo of my arcade table. Been busy lately making my own amp and I didn’t exactly forget, so much as — did something else in my time. I’m easily distracted (which is also why the table is half-finished… functional but taken apart again for a final coat of paint – which was supposed to happen a year ago) It is very easy to get distracted when you have multiple ongoing projects, a huge backlog, a bunch of aquaintances that come over spontaneously and a bunch of people who keep trying to wii U chat me since I got banned… (so: no weekly euro e-shop updates this week… although I could post it here if you or someone else would be willing to copy it to miiverse.) I actually do show my home-made (terrible looking) amp, arcade table, screen and game collection to those who call while I happen to look at the gamepad (I usually don’t notice due to streaming videos to my big screen). I hope to post some photos tonight. I also want to brag about my game collection… so I might post some pics of that, too. jjbredesen Dam, Nintendo has done a lot of shit XD, good luck with your projekts, i am also easily distracted. Arthur Jarret Yeah – at least I finished my amplifier, even though it looks like hey look, a squirrel. Nope.avi Iwata warned me about people like you! Daniel Gonzalez Iwata has a very deceptive expression. I wouldn’t trust a guy who looks at people like that. ;P Magnus Eriksson What do you expect from a mug shot? He is probablystill high. Haru-chan-GOT7<3 dfg rp17 What kind of hacking is going on? Magnus Eriksson Dont know. How do you do that btw? jjbredesen They (the hackers) use some sort of upvote bot, that uses multible proxies so that Disqus gets tricked in to thinking that it is coming from multible computers, as for the downvotes, i am not sure how they do it, it is not manual, as i have seen the downvotes (live) on one of my posts, so they are using some sort of bot for that to, but i can’t figure out how the downvotes work… working on it though. Mozellergodt Don’t call them hackers. The right term is “script-kiddies”, they just use tools written by someone else. Anyone could do it really. As for the downvotes it’s probably a script generating a pool of Disqus accounts. They don’t require a security input , and you don’t even need to confirm the email adress, so it wouldn’t be much trouble at all 😛 jjbredesen True, the term Script kiddies, is verry good, i guess WUD, could just ban there IP’s from the server? Problem is it looks, like they are using proxies, so there is no real way to stop them, unless we perform an attack on there computers, but that would make us worse than theme, so i guess we should just wait til they get board.. Mozellergodt Yeah it’s kind of hard to stop it, but they could f.ex add a blacklist of known proxies. But first of all require security input when creating a Disqus account, and we would at least get rid of the downvotes. jjbredesen Yeah, that could work, but that would have to be done by the Disqus devs, as i can’t find any options in the admin site, to add any security input, and blacklisting them is not going to stop them, i was banned from here a couple of days ago, because they thought i was assoiated with a troll group, and i simply changed my IP and made a new account, then it would get banned and i would repeat, untill they understood, so for the “hackers” to do something similar would be no problem, unless WUD has someone stalk the comment section 24/7 it can’t be done, and there is no way for them to track the IP’s of the downvotes, atleast not as far as i know. Mozellergodt Ye, has to be done by the devs I guess. I’m no expert but I’m sure there is a good solution or we would see this problem everywhere like YouTube and so on. But this has to be a known problem? I’ve only seen it on this site so far though. Only thing that can be done by WiiUDaily is making sure WordPress & all it’s plugins is completely up-to-date. jjbredesen Yeah, it is a problem only on this site as far as i am aware, but it is an easy thing to do, if you know what you are doing. since they use wordpress, it is hard for them to block people from the site, as it is wordpress that hosts the domain? I have been able to get the current IP of the hacker:188.8.131.52 Huxley Tanner That IP belongs to “TheScienceEnthusiast1130” “AND” it is his local IP not a proxy or VPN, lazy assclown… He clicked on to a couple of tracking scripts I sent his way a few days ago and I matched that up with his email and disqus account after having commented on a mirror site I created (14 days ago… like I said, he’s lazy) to look just like their old Nintenscience comment section before @ilovegoogleglass took it down… BTW, please don’t call this stooge a “Hacker”. Insulting…. But then, having admin rights yourself previously, you would already have known that. jjbredesen Yeah, i know its him XD, so you are the guy behind the petition? But, he does use a VPN service at times, i know he is located in the UK, but no more than that, may i ask, how you are affliated with them? Did he troll your site? Huxley Tanner not affiliated with them at all. yes he was trolling a friends site. yes they were banned. yes they hijacked the upvotes/ downvotes. And yes they are all ass clowns, but no they are not “hackers” yet they have been “hacked” jjbredesen Ok, well thats what they have done here. Only way to get rid of them, is to blacklist them from the server, I know that they are not hackers, as i scared the shit out of them. when they were trolling here, so i sent them some fake viruses, (.bat scripts) and they stopped trolling. So what have you hacked? jjbredesen Sir, the link in your comment, is not the real site 😉 Im not that stupid 😉 Huxley Tanner Young Sir 🙂 LOL it was never mean’t to be “the real site”. Just for fun readypembroke My mom said he looked goofy when she saw him in the latest Nintendo Direct. She really wants the new Kirby game! I do too! 😀 AAAkabob Welcome to the Q1 drought John Andalora The heck you talking about? I got Outlast last week for free, and I’m getting Dangan ronpa this week. Had my choice of the litter, too. Could’ve gone with Toukiden. And on the 25th, I’ll be getting Thief. It’s shaping up to be a fairly good month. AAAkabob Lol it was satire. I’ve sunk many many hours into Bravely Default this weekend and it’s my favorite game of the year. Soon I’ll be getting my PS4 and I’ll never have a productive weekend again =D John Andalora I gotta say, I’ve had fun with it. The PS4 has had my attention, an hopefully the games down the road will be a lot of fun too! Shota damn they did a great job with the brave and default system Pikachief It happens. Spring time. A couple of delayed or late projects get released in spring here and there, then we wait till E3 so they can announce games coming out Fall of this year and the next. It’s usually this barren till Fall cuz they want to build up as much info for events. rp17 All I have heard is Indie games like, 1001 Spikes, Shovel Knight, and Wooden Sen’SeY… John Andalora Eh, there’s been a few new things. PS Plus got a new game that’s really fun for PS4 (Outlast), PS Vita has two great releases, both games being localized to the US for the first time (Toukiden and Danganronpa), new Sonic stuff (If you’re into that), Bravely Default came out, and Flappy Bird came and went like a kind of eggy fart at a party. Saul Rivera Yeah it’s been slow everywhere…it’s mostly editor articles and not real gaming news…but here’s an interesting read anyways http://nintendoenthusiast.com/article/120-upcoming-wii-u-games-indie/ Xero Azure I randomly found out about this 2 days a go lol Dáibhí wotshissurname Wii U could play html5 games anyways, so it’s cool to have a site dedicated to the function! GregoryTheRainMaker Meh..it’s something. Donaald Cut The Rope seems fine but the rest are notably lagging. Deadpool U Breaking news! Mother brain announced as a trophy in Smash bros! http://www.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/56955/mother-brain-revealed-as-new-smash-bros-assist-trophy/ http://cdn.medialib.officialnintendomagazine.co.uk/screens/dir_633/image_63304_thumb_wide930.jpg jjbredesen Yes finally some news!!! Saul Rivera Well it’s breaking news here… kevin nun—- These graphics though. They can do much better. HungryMetroid I hope they’re not rushing the game just to increase sales SP-937-215 I wouldn’t worry about that. They aren’t doing ANYTHING to increase sales. Magnus Eriksson That looked kind of shitty to be honest. It looks very rushed. I would think this picture was a fake if… is it a fake maybe? Superstick98 What did you expect from a cartoon fighting game? Crysis 3 or Battlefield 4 graphics? :/ Daniel Gonzalez Yes. Magnus Eriksson I expect the Mother Brain to look better than N64 graphics Deadpool U With the whole picture I’m only seeing a problem with Mother brain myself since there are screenshots that make the game look better. Magnus Eriksson I wasnt specific. I meant Mother Brain, the other stuff looks good. Deadpool U I think didn’t put as much MB since she’s just a trophy or they don’t wanna gross people out by having a way too detailed brain in the game. Magnus Eriksson Still, they could have made it looking like something made for a current gen system. This one is just sloppy made. 00EpicGamer00 I think it’s probably an early model of it that Sakurai wants to show us now so that we’re excited about something. I’m pretty sure it’ll get better. Carlos Webster Hey guys! I have great news! We may have a new combatant in the console war ring, and I’m talking about Apple! You see there’s currently a rumor going around that the next Apple TV will be a games console, by being able to download games natively on its own App Store, without the need for Airplay. If this is true, then it’s great because 1. it means more competition, and 2. I feel Apple is the only one who can stop the evil Xbox brand (Microsoft is only beating them in the Windows vs. Mac OS X rivalry, anyway). P. S.: another part of the rumor is that you will be able to use Bluetooth controllers provided by third parties as your Apple TV video gaming controllers. Johny slow news time huh….for ANY company/console 😐 Pikachief I just want TitanFall info :'( It comes out in a month and we still are in the dark for most of the game :/ I just want season pass details, beta info, a map count, a detailed description on how the campaign works, etc. All we know is that the game is online only, will have DLC, will have 3 titans, and we’ve seen 2 maps. That’s it. John Andalora Then turn to game releases. Outlast on PS4 last week, Dangan ronpa this week, Thief on the 25th, Brave Default last week, DKCR on the 21st. News might be slow, but games are starting to finally come in. guest umm, we have been able to play these games on the wii u since its release. Link of all time tried it, let me know when its better Jonathan Dogey These games don’t work. I load up pacman and pacman won’t move. my joysticks and dpad just move everything they normally move on ANY website. steveb944 It works pretty well. I spent too much time on there just now instead of jumping into W101 GamersTreeHouse2013 I doubt I would use this feature myself as I have a PC I use often BUT I think this is great for those without one. As a kid I would have loved my game consoles to be able to hook up to the net so I can play other games while I wait for my next birthday to get my next game from my parents 🙂 I beat Tekken 2 waaaaay to many times hehe Skelterz the truth of iwata’s drinking revealed.http://www.p4rgaming.com/satoru-iwata-says-he-was-drunk-during-nintendos-investor-meeting/ ~OMEGA~ 😀 this is awesome! now we just need adblock wii u Brennero Pardo Centanaro games run slowly. Just played Pacman and it takes forever to eat all those dots. Any game that can be played really good? LJay Who wants to use their Wiiu to play this trash? Fierce-Deity Link meh games and they run slowly.. hardly news worthy imo ;p Roman Yea… I tried these on the WiiU, every one I tried was SUPER lagy. Sucks. We need flash support.
