Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at nerdybits@nerdbastards.com.

Briefly: Nintendo just announced they’ll have 23 games ready at the WiiU’s real launch on November 18th. These include:

• Call of Duty: Black Ops II
• Skylanders Giants
• Transformers Prime
• Wipeout 3
• Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two
• EA Sports FIFA Soccer 13
• Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition
• New Super Mario Bros. U
• Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge
• NintendoLand
• SiNG Party
• Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
• Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper
• Darksiders II
• Assassin’s Creed III
• ESPN Sports Connection
• Just Dance 4
• Rabbids Land
• Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2013
• ZombiU
• Scribblenauts Unlimited
• Game Party Champions
• Batman: Arkham City Armored Edition

Oh look, the majority “must haves” are ports. I guess that was one way to shut up fans griping over the initial two games for the launch (Nintendoland and New Super Mario Bros. U). *shakes head*

Every time we mention the WiiU here on Nerd Bastards, we’re compelled spill specious hate on what a useless console it is. I’ll save you my personal diatribe and just direct you to last weeks Bastard Cast, where hosts Jeremy Hudson and Jason Tabrys discuss the subject intelligently. They talk on how Nintendo had some neat ideas, but ultimately, what a wasted investment the WiiU is. Especially, given the current state of the industry and what’s on the horizon.

You can listen to the cast HERE.
