    I love this console, and really... I haven't seen a thing wrong with the touch screen capablities. Though I haven't played Arkham City Armored Edition yet.

    i think this is probably a good example of how to make games that work on the console properly not like the wii which had to pay attention to only some games because other games wouldent work on it. thats ok though as long as they keep new features coming for the games for the wiiu and i am excited to see more MAYBE i will bye this but we will have to see. if anyone else has it would you recommend it

    I want to see touch commands like Mario Hoops 3 on 3 or Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow or similarly for QTEs or something like that. You know?

    So in conclusion.... Arkham City: Armored Edition is pretty fucking stupid and full of terrible gimmicks that you never want to see again.

    Not at all. This article forgot to mention a pretty important fact which is that you don't HAVE to control the batarang or whatever else with the motion controls. You can simply just use the analog sticks and it will let you control it like usual. Same goes for Zombi U. You don't have to use the motion sensor to move around the scanner, you can simply use the analog sticks once again. Arkham City not only looks great and is awesome to play totally on the gamepad, but with both screens the gamepad offers great shortcuts and THE MAP without having to pause every two seconds. Getting upgrades and accessing information was quick and easy when I played. I think whoever wrote this barely even used the Wii U enough to get used to it. Which isn't fair to Nintendo or those curious about buying it. They offered an 8GB or 32GB option because the Wii U is compatible with external hard drives via plug-n-play. Including a large hard drive would of probably meant an even higher price tag. It was expensive enough and I already had a 500GB drive laying around that finally gets some use! I'm glad with the decision. Although it would be nice if they included an internal hard drive bay that you could fit a 2.5" SATA drive into, instead of having an external HDD laying next to your console. That's my only qualm. Oh and multi-touch on the gamepad would of been MUCH better and have many many practical uses like zooming in on maps and stuff. Makes no sense why with tablets and smartphones at their feet, nintendo decided to go backwards with their touchscreen. They could of made it a 720p screen at least also. I have a feeling that they won't ever release a different version of the Wii U. But instead they will release a new updated gamepad as if it was it's own console. Maybe a better screen, better signal strength, and the ability to use internet to stream the games so you can leave your house with the gamepad. But who knows... maybe they'll release a new Wii U in a few years that has internal storage built in and other things fixed that people complained about.

    Oh and just to clarify (as if I haven't said enough), the screen on the Wii U Gamepad is actually really nice. The image quality is surprisingly sharp and handles motion in video/games very well. Black Ops 2 and Assassin's Creed 3 in particular look extremely good on the gamepad. In the case of Black Ops 2 it actually looks better and looks smoother on the gamepad than it does on the TV. I think the fact that the screen is smaller smooths out the jagged edges in games, and the high frame-rates translate onto the gamepad screen amazingly. The only reason I'd want a 720p or 1080p screen on there is for video content. That's when resolutions seem to show themselves. Watching YouTube, Netflix, or other video content on the gamepad you can see that it's not HD quality. But in games it looks really good. Better than the top screen of the 3DS. Much bigger screen also. The PS Vita screen is the best handheld screen at the moment though.

    Why do you guys have a picture of ZombiU for #3 when you don't even mention it as a perpetrator? If all games have the ability to use the right stick in tandem with motion control like ZombiU does I will be very happy. Scanning items is a breeze since you can fine tune it with very little motion after you have already released the stick.

    For once I'm actually glad that the USA got something ahead of Europe. Had plenty of coverage of the WiiU now. And while I still want one, I don't want it soon. I'll just wait till they ironed out most of the kink and games have less fps problems.

    Heh... Gotta love how 4 out of 4 of the main complaints of the uses for the gamepad can be traced back to a single game: Aarkham City - Armored Edition XD

    HAHAHA, I was just thinking that!
  • Z-man427 - November 23, 2012 1:32 p.m.

    All of the negative comes from Arkham City. How on earth did they manage to screw up such a brilliant game? Ugh.

    the funny part is Batman is still a 9/10
