    Can we make a list of games that can steam all audio to the Gamepad? My main reason for this is that I wanna use my Wii U with my monitor and it only has DVI, so an HDMI to DVI adapter will have to be used, and it'll kill the audio.

    These games have that option as far as I know:

    Nano Assault Neo (at least when using the gamepad for the main display)
    Nintendo Land
    ZombiU (according to the demo, anyway)
    Little Inferno
    New Super Mario Bros. U
    Warriors Orochi 3
    Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed
    Darksiders II
    Assassins Creed III
    Tekken Tag Tournament II
    Call of Duty: Black Ops II
    Mighty Switch Force!: Hyper Drive Edition

    Any others?

    Actually, if Nintendo stated that you can play with even the TV closed then yes, it means it will stream audio onto the gamepad, not to mention it has got a headphone jack as well.

    I know CoD :BO2 has streaming audio to the gamepad. NSMBU and CoD :BO2 are the only two games I've found that can play strictly on the gamepad without the TV. I wonder if there are more of those.

    Like it has been said, you can play Sonic & All-Stars Racing on the gamepad, entirely. You won't have a minimap/back view, but it doesn't really makes much difference.

    Nano Assault Neo and Little Inferno can be played strictly on the gamepad. Nintendo Land can be played on the gamepad for the co-operative attractions if you play alone, and maybe a few of the single player attractions

    Erm...that's up to the game developers, really. Not all games offer that feature, so it's certainly not an auto-assumption for any game.


    For the record: Trine 2 and NSMBU can also be played on just the gamepad*. It streams all the audio on the device.




    *I think I actually have to turn this around for trine 2: it's BETTER to just play the game handheld style than trying something on your television monitor...the game depends too much on gestures and touchscreen thingies.

    That doesn't work like on PS3, or so I've read.

    Trine 2 , streams to the Gamepad and can play independant of the TV .

    only have trine 2 , Blops2 , NSMB2 .

    Note the demos i have Rayman and ZombiU cannot play on the Pad , but Fifa13 demo can and the audio streams too.(i know this doesnt suggest the full game will , but defoo ZombiU isnt able to play on the pad alone AYK.)

    I can confirm (from your first post) that ZombiU can stream all audio to the gamepad when set in options.
    I only own NSMBU, ZombiU, Nintendo Land, Trine 2, and Nano Assault Neo.
