It’s no secret that many third party developers haven’t been invested in providing quality online multiplayer gameplay for the Wii U. With that said, Ubisoft is one of the few third party devs making strides to provide Wii U owners with a complete online experience. So, I thought we could all enjoy their most recent online multiplayer game together.

Starting tonight at 7 p.m. CT (Chicago Time), and continuing throughout the weekend, I will be playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist online under the Nintendo I.D., JohnnyDaily. I invite anyone in the Wii U Daily community to friend me to play some multiplayer. I will be recording all of my play sessions, and publish a video on the site next week featuring all of the best moments.

I’ve only put about an hour into the game at this point. So, I’m not specifically looking for hardcore players, but I won’t mind anyone willing to carry me.

If you want to watch all of my mediocrity live, I will also be streaming the sessions on For updates on when I’m going to start playing, follow me on Twitter, @JohnnyZaccari.

Who’s ready to do the sneakings?

    Damn, not gonna have time, going to a Music Festival this weekend, but feel free to friend me for next time. KcebEnyaw

  • Wish I could… any of you have Rayman Legends? It’d be fun for WiiU daily to compete against one another as a site in the weekly/daily challenges :3

    • AAAkabob

      • I’m zorpix, so add me back

    Wii U!!!

  • Laud

    I would if I had the game. I’m trying to win it with this giveaway you guys are doin’

    College drains money so quickly. 🙁

  • Jon

    Well… I would but I don’t have the game and I won’t for a while. TOo many awesome games coming in the next few months and money is limited… I can only afford 1 game on average per month 🙁

  • Good luck trying to party up with anyone. Multiplayer is heavily broken across all platforms, with the Wii U being the worst offender, and trying to get into any match type except SvM Classic is next to impossible.

    • Why didn’t you tell me that before I made this post?! Haha. I played two matches yesterday and it seemed fine.If it’s broke as hell when we play, we can try to play something else.

      • If the experience I just had no more than 3 minutes ago is any indication, this game will be broken until Ubisoft releases a patch.

        I should state that there I have had some good multiplayer experiences on Blacklist. However, there is an equal, if not larger, amount of terrible experiences as well.

        • I believe you, I just haven’t experienced it in my few games yet. In fact, anyone interested in playing tonight, feel free to list other Wii U online games you own and would be down to play if we run into trouble.

  • Derk

    I didn’t know this game had online multiplayer. The last splinter cell game that I played was the original game on the Xbox like a decade ago. I haven’t followed the series since then but I might get down on this one when its cheaper. I remember not being able to finish any of the later missions because I was an impatient little brat.

    • ICHI

      you can run and gun of a sort in this one so you dont have to be patient any more, accept for the loading screens.

  • AAAkabob

    I’m down. But John, I’m not sure if you’re aware of how bad the online sucks for the Wii U version. Every version had lots of bugs at first, but right now the Wii U is the only one still waiting for a patch.

  • AAAkabob

    Also, I think you have your ID written down wrong John

    • It’s written correctly. I’ve already friended a couple people on here. I added you just now. So, if you want, you can add me back

  • Ducked

    Of all times for my Wii U to be not working, it’s right before all the awesome games are out.

    • Striker

      • felony211662

        What’s up bro !^)

  • Leorio

    Doesn’t the Wii U version of the game freeze for like.. no reason at all? lol I was going to buy it until I saw how horribly broken it was in a few ways.. like trying to find people to play with. lol

    • ICHI

      It does freeze yeah, but ubi is working on a patch, its a great game too so worth a punt if youre into this style of game

      • Striker

        Freezing is cross plat. Happens in MP sometimes. As for trouble finding games.. Setting the Wii U to DMZ in your router settings helps out tremendously.. Call Nintendo for connection issues, they will walk you through it.

        • ICHI

          I have already done that, anyone know the port forwarding details for this game? We could make a little guide for everyone’s router?

  • WaHydraxon
