Default Do you feel the Wii U has anything to offer us flyboys?

Just post your thoughts.

I guess the controller could be used for radar, instruments, mfd, etc. I sure someone smarter than me can think of something.

Just googled it,i now know what it is. Sorry for not understanding at first.

The Wii U...... basically the new Nintendo Wii.


If im honest, i dont think it will offer us fly boys anything at all. Its aimed more for the family gamer and more casual people where as the 360/PS3 cater for the more serious gamer.

At best i'd say the clost you would get to "hardcore flying" on the Wii would probably be ace combat or something along those lines.

Then again i could be wrong, but those above are just my thoughts.


Birds of Steel is due out before long and i'll be playing it religiously on my 360

Soon as I saw a vid of that Wii U controller I thought of rear gunner in a flight game. Apparently it has a gyroscope onboard and can display a different view of the game to that on the TV. So the pilot sees his view on main tv and second player uses the U controller and has full first person view and control of the rear gun/turrets. Gyro control and a swivel chair would be even more intense.

For single player the screen could give you a downward bomb site view while the main tv shows your forward flight view.

Here's hoping for a Birds Of Steel on the Wii U!

@ dkwookie
Excellent ideas.

Here's a video of the wii U to help get the imagination engines turning.

I played that to death on the 3DS recently. Played it so much I went cross eyed! Just a side note that Ace Combat is coming to 3DS...can't wait

Back to this new controller though, there are tons of possibilities for local two player. Apache with gunner view on the cotroller and pilot on main screen.
On BOP single player I would put tail plane view on the tv and have adjustable view on the controller. Look down to the pad screen to see your six.

Even basic radar map view on the pad would be cool

What could be cool would be seeing opponents view when he kills you on the pad screen

I like the idea of a pilot/gunner using the tv and the pad, but dont get your hopes up.

Did anyone play or have AAA? Apache Air Assault?

You cant have a pilot/gunner over XBL/PSN because it was to complicated to do and the host couldnt handle it or some crap like that. Though bad company 2 could do it, all be it on a dedicated server.

Who knows what might happen, lets not rule anything out yet hopefully the new game will have pilot/gunner options. It would make my day if that happened!! Flying a dauntless dive bomber with a friend manning the rear gun.

Can't wait to see how it progresses.

I don't know Foz, I read it will be getting more of the multiplatform games, Aliens:Colonial Marines being one game mentioned and I know thats a game you are looking foward to. Think how cool that would be with your movement scanner on the controler.
