    the single best thing about video games is a facebook-esque "like" button for cruddy drawings? okay I can now see this whole article is being sarcastic.

    Is the "just about to die light" on the gamepad one that turns from green to red, so colorblind people have a hard time seeing the difference? The DS did that, and I could never tell when it was just about to die in the middle of a dungeon in Dragon Quest.

    These awards were very entertaining. Im still holding out until I see what Microsoft and Sony have up their sleeves. But it is a very entertaining pros and cons list basically.

    :D totally agree with all of this.

    When I heard that the basic was 8 GB and some of the other problems that you mentioned like the low battery life, I just think I will wait until a cheaper later verison of the Wii U is released. Oh well, I am a Sony guy anyway, so lets hope the Orbis kicks it's butt.

    'Greatest original Mario launch game since Super Mario 64: New Super Mario Bros U' Yeah, if you ignore the fact its not at all original and a sequal to New Super Mario Bros Wii, which itself was a console version of New Super Mario Bros on the DS... Yeah, completely original...

    There hasn't been a Mario Launch game with a Nintendo console since Mario 64. I think even Mario 64DS came out some time after the DS. It's a joke they're making ;)

    Zooooom! The entry flies RIGHT over your head!

    I'm trying really hard to be excited over the Wii U, but for everything that seems intriguing to me there is twice as much shit that pushes me away.

    I understand why they are just hammering out these pointless articles. They are a business and they to be hype up and pretend not to be bias about a New system or game but man I don't think I have seen a game site struggle so hard to praise this thing. Like seriously There are more praised 'hopes' on this list than actually cheers. All in all from what I have read on this site so far and how not one article really claimed it was an awesome piece of hardware. If Nintendo wasn't paying the bills these article might be a little different especially because of the price point.

    Insert obligatory "game company paid us off" conspiray theory post above. ^^^^^^

    "Game that most makes us wish that the Wii U launched with a Pokemon game: Skylanders Giants" I know, you can just see it, finding Pokemon toys to smash into that portal pad thing and put them in your gaming world

    "Poorly-organized eShop" My god that eShop.......I keep wanting to look for a "search" button but there isn't even that! Also, you forgot to mention how truly horrible the youtube app is.
  • Redeater - November 23, 2012 12:10 p.m.

    I meant Miiverse for that search button crack. But both are truly all over the place. This is why I shouldn't post when I just woke up.

    This console looks awesome and I hope it is a big hit for I would get one But one game I would TRULY love to see for this console would be Final Fantasy!! and will it be WI-FI and will we be able to watch movies on it?!! AND have a USB port

    everyone's saying the basic model isn't worth buying because of the small HDD but honestly you're still going to need to upgrade the hard drive on the deluxe model since its still only 32GB
  • Redeater - November 23, 2012 12:04 p.m.

    Yeah see this is what I don't understand. I almost all of the games on the eshop won't let you download them unless you have an external HDD regardless of model.
  • Theatticusera - November 23, 2012 11:32 p.m.

    I agree but for the extra $50 you're getting that extra space, Nintendo Land and some other things too so it seems to be the way to go
