The Nintendo Wii U was released in the US on November 18 and and from a cheats side of things (come on, what else are we gonna cover!?) it’s looking pretty slow at this stage. While some cheats have been released for the original Nintendo launch titles (e.g. New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land), most cheats to date are simply replicas of the specific cheat, code or unlockable that you’ll find for the same game on an existing system (like the Xbox 360 or PS3). For instance, all the cheats for NBA 2K13 as well as 007 Legends and Assassin’s Creed 3 are the same on Wii U as they are on Xbox 360.
We think it will be a while until the cheats and codes start flowing on the new Wii U console and a couple of different new sites looking to specialize in this niche have popped up,. Here at Xbox360Cheats we have our money placed squarely on WUCheats for a number of reasons and if you visit it you should find a decent selection of cheats for most of the Wii U games in your collection.
That said, the bottom line is that it’s still a little too early to get excited about any really cool cheats for your Wii U games and for now if you’re stuck on a title already released for the Xbox 360, PS3 or PC, then just check out the cheats for the game on that platform, and you should find at least something.
Alternatively, maybe things will improve when our friends in Europe, Australia and Japan get their hands on the Wii U (November 30 for EU and AU, and December 8 for JP). Either way, expect things to improve!
It’s been just over one year since the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5 was released and now Rockstar have been kind enough to give us the second. It’s clear that GTA 5 will likely be the most anticipated video game in history, so take a look at the new video below and give us your thoughts!
We wanted to bring this blog out of retirement for the moment, just to report that Rockstar have finally given an official release window for Grand Theft Auto V! Yes, the game is (1) real and (2) due spring 2013 for both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3!
Rockstar confirmed the news today and also said that pre-orders for the much-hyped title will begin next week starting 5 November. No mention of a release window for a/the PC version is an obvious omission and Rockstar have stated that they simply “don’t have any details to share about a PC version at this time.”
We’ll no doubt post again soon, but if you are a particularly massive GTA5 fan, make sure you bookmark GTA5Cheats (yes, it will cover cheats as well!) for GTA 5 news in the meantime.
The cerebral third-person shooter, Spec Ops: The Line, has officially received a free downloadable content package, including a cooperative multiplayer mode. The mode is separate from the main campaign, and will support only two players, but includes four brand new missions with unique objectives and different characters to fight through the sandstorm-ruined Dubai with. You can expect some pretty standard fare here, including wave-based objectives where you’ll be pitted against the elements and a whole bunch of enemies, alongside others. The content is available now on Xbox 360 for the wonderful price of free.
Thank goodness for High Moon Studios. If it weren’t for this talented team, we might actually have to deal with a Transformers movie tie-in game that might have somehow rivaled the awfulness of the films themselves. Fortunately for us, High Moon Studios delivered the excellent War for Cybertron and redefined the Transformers franchise as something that could potentially make for an enjoyable video game experience. Now, the studio is trying to do it again with Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. For fans of the series (and maybe even those who aren’t) would do well to hit the jump for the fresh launch trailer.
Halo 4 is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year, and if the latest developer diary is any indication, 343 Industries is hard at work on what is sure to be an exciting refresh of the series. Unlike other developer diaries, 343 Industries opts to simply show you the men and women working tirelessly on every aspect of Halo 4 without any kind of narration other than the beautiful and haunting soundtrack. Check it out for yourself after the jump.
Much like the original Borderlands, all of the weaponry you’ll be wielding in Borderlands 2 comes from one of the game’s three weapon manufacturers, each with a distinct personality and behavior. Although the regional influences are hilariously obvious, it’s not exactly in the nature of the Borderlands franchise to be subtle. To further accentuate such a point, Gearbox Software recently released a few promotional videos to give future players an idea of what to expect from each of the game’s weapon creators. Take a look for yourself after the jump.
With the Ninja Gaiden franchise losing its way after Tomonobu Itagaki left Team Ninja, the action hack ‘n slash genre is in dire need of a replacement. Fortunately, the upcoming Metal Gears Rising: Revengeance from Bayonetta developer, Platinum Games is prepared to fill the gap with stylish cyborg ninja combat. After making an appearance at Gamescom 2012, the talented developer showed off a sorta-kinda new trailer with a release date on the tail end of it. Aspiring ninjas looking to strut their virtual stuff will have a chance to slice and dice their opponents on February 19th, 2013. Have a look at the new trailer after the jump.
The highly anticipated Star Wars 1313 got a brand spankin’ new trailer at Gamescom 2012, and it’s arguably the best-looking Star Wars game yet. Featuring visuals that are almost indistinguishable from the in-game cinematics, this insanely polished third-person shooter from LucasArts looks absolutely stellar. While the gameplay does appear to be very reminiscent of Mass Effect 3, cover system and all, it certainly doesn’t hurt the overall presentation whatsoever. See for yourself just how incredible Star Wars 1313 is shaping up to be in the fresh trailer after the jump.
While many are excited for Far Cry 3 primarily because of its narrative-driven experience, the cooperative mode looks to be a fully-fledged attraction to complement the bulk of the main experience. With a rag-tag group of crazy characters working together for revenge, the cooperative campaign in Far Cry 3 will be heavily action-oriented with distinctive personalities. Check out some of the insane characters you’ll have a chance to inhabit later this year in the trailer after the jump.
