In Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney's first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery.

ZombiUZombiU

WiiU

* Release Date: Nov 18, 2012

ZombiU is a fear-fueled first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montpellier. This is the only game that I think will do well on the WiiU because it is a original property by Ubisoft. Looks good.

* Genre: First-Person Shooters

PlanetSide 2 is an MMO FPS set in an online persistent world where the war wages non-stop and the balance of power shifts with every base and territory captured and lost. This is supposed to be tide to a PS3 title which I hope works out well the game I have been playing on the beta for a bit is fun.

WiiU

* Release Date: Nov 18, 2012

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale is a four-player brawler pitting a whole host of Sony and third-party game characters against each other. Time for some Sony Smash Bros. I think this should be a fun game for the PS3.

WiiU

Ninja Gaiden III: Razor's Edge marks the debut of the Ninja Gaiden series on the Nintendo Wii U. Seems they have fixed this title and this may be the definitive version to have.

 

Wii UWiiU

WiiU

* Release Date: Nov 18, 2012

Last but not least the WiiU Console itself. The first of the next-gen systems to hit the market. Will it out do it’s established predecessor this holiday season? Who knows but Hopefully Nintendo gets some momentum and games going this year for it.

 

So that is your Gaming Grab Bag for this week which is Nintendo heavy. I have not forgotten the fact that Walking Dead Ep. 5 releases this week. Also a new Spartan Ops for Halo 4. There is a cluster of titles out this week. Hope you guys see something you like. Are any of you picking up the WiiU and if so let me know what you think of it. I would love the info on it from someone who has played around with it a bit.
