The Wonderful 101 is coming out on Sept. 15! It looks amazing, and even more so with this amazing trailer!

 

 

It seems a lot more story focused then I thought it was gonna be.

 

The demo is out now on the Wii U eShop, if you play it and it feels really boring or awkward, I suggest to keep playing till you get the hang of it. And try both the gamepad's touching and the right stick for drawing shapes. The game really takes some getting used to but it's very enjoyable once you do.

I had very low expectations for this game. The game looked amusing, but funny story/characters don't sell me a $60 game if the game play is terrible. I downloaded the demo out of curiosity and because I had a friend who had great expectations for the game dying to play it.

 

The first time I played it was just ok. Second time I got the hang of it and started doing better.

 

Then I got my friend involved, and we played for almost 8 hours total over Saturday and Sunday. Most of that was Saturday. We did everything in the story over and over and over (all both easy and normal difficulty). My best is a gold medal on normal; my friend managed platinum.

 

And we played the co-op. We had 3 players several times. The co-op mission mode is a lot of fun - it's made better by the Easter egg that lets you unlock Wonder Pink (whip) and Wonder Yellow (hammer) for the mission mode.

 

No one I played with (5 people total, including me) cared for the touch screen. The right analog stick is magic. The game has a learning curve, but it's fantastic fun when you get the hang of it.

 

My hype for this game went from zero to through the roof. I'm very excited about The Wonderful 101. I highly recommend checking out the demo.

Yeah I liked the right stick way better too. I think they intended it to be played that way anywho.

Yeah, I got the feeling that the touch screen was just there because Nintendo told them "you gotta use it for something." Same deal with using the second screen when you enter a building.

 

It's made more obvious with the fact that you can play with the classic controller instead. The screen doesn't really add much to this experience.

I see a few developers do that with the Wii U, they either don't incorporate or use the gamepad in the most blatantly obvious way.

So those abysmal reviews!
I'm not talking 7.0. They brought out the FORBIDDEN NUMBERS
3.0
Yup. That bad.

I thought of Vash the Stampede and Sephiroth.

Why do you never ask to borrow games? XD

I haven't had a chance to play it besides the demo, but it seems like a fun game to play.

I have so far enjoyed what I have played of Wonderful 101.

 

It's tricky but pretty fun. I really don't have much to say about it though, other than "It's about what I expected"
