    You said Nano Assault Neo came in first, but it’s 4th on the list. I’m not sure if I misinterpreted that or not. I haven’t downloaded any games yet but Trine 2 looks very interesting.

    • wiiudaily

      Fixed, thanks!

      • Linskarmo

        You’re very welcome.

    wii u daily needs to get better news… i think since there is so many biased reviews  about nintendo not cutting it and finding small little annoyances with the wii u …
    we    i.e.  wii u daily staff…
    should make positive reviews and talk about features and have a section just on reviews? is this going to happen? id help however i can’t afford to purchase every single game lol…   

    • wiiudaily

      We’re not going to “just give positive reviews” — if a Wii U game doesn’t live up to the expectations and if there are issues with it, our reviews will reflect that.

        Review family party 30 great games please. XD

  • leafsfan73

    I’ve bought Little Inferno, Chasing Aurora, Trine 2 and Scribblenauts Unlimited off the E-shop.  

  • Srpg2ishere

    Is there anybody else getting injustice gods among us? I am. That game looks tight. I can’t wait to use Wii U’s controller to sock my cousin in the mouth. (I mean in the game)

  • uPadWatcher

    Trine 2: Director’s Cut have went from #2 to #1!  Independent games on the Wii U truly shows they can be as good, fun, and unique as big budget companies and developers.  Thumbs up to Frozenbyte Games.

  • john madsen

    i own little inferno and trine 2 both are my favorite

  • bought zo,mbi u and nano assault. at the moment there is no reason for me to switch the wii u on. there is just old games so far and little indie-gems that are cool but do not meet my expectation as a gamer. ninja gaiden is still not out here in switzerland. the wii u made some good impression, but without proper games it’s useful as a brick.

  • Alienfish

    I still think it’s impressive that the great majority of retail games are also downloadable. I still buy the disc though. It’s that sexy smooth finish I can’t resist.

  • Johny

    Lol 😀 

    i purchased 3 games: 
    -Trine 2
    -Little Inferno
    -Nano Assault: Neo

  • audie bowler

    good to see theres a fine blend of games there and there leaders are indie ,so the nintendo console owners only buy nintendo games myth has been exposed yet again LOL

  • Fred

    I downloaded New Super Mario Bros U, NBA 2K13 and Trine 2. NBA 2K13 is my favorite of the 3

  • ludist210

    Amazingly, all six of the games I have downloaded (four retail, two indie) and both retail games I own are on that list.  Woo!
