CAN'T WAIT!!! :)
Sounds like a good time to get my first Wii. Seriously I'll likely get one early next year so I can play the handful of games that interest me.
Brace yourselves! The Plumber is coming!
tomorrow! wii u!
Holy crap, this thing takes forever to set up.
Transferring from Wii to Wii U has got to be the most entertaining data transfer in the history of the world.
I got all the way to the store then decided not to get it, lol. I'm just not as impressed with it as I should be to throw down $300. That, coupled with the fact that there are at least 5 games coming out for the PS3 next year that I definitely want at launch.
Also, I'd like to see what MS and Sony have in store for the next gen. I just don't see the Wii U doing as well in the next year and a half when when the PS and Xbox whatever are announced.
I just wish the standard set came with a game. But I'm enjoying the game I picked.
I played the Wii U all weekend long, and I'm tempted to call this one of my favorite consoles ever made. I am shocked at how much I prefer the tablet-controller over any other controller I've ever used. It has no business being as comfortable as it is. I think it has something to do with your hands being spaced apart perfectly. It feels so natural. Gimmicks or not, Wii U is an HD Nintendo console with the best controller in the history of gaming. Even though I barely played it, Nintendo Land is actually a really cool game. I think it crushes Wii Sports.
Final Verdict - 10/10
