Very Underrated Console

Posted

Pros: game pad, small footprint, actually has power, more 1080p games, Nintendo exclusives, great versions of 3rd party titles, Miiverse, eShop

Cons: limited 3rd party support, no online multiplayer for certain Nintendo games, no Blu-ray playback, needs more classic and indie games on the eShop

I somewhat recently purchased a Nintendo Wii U in September after the price drop. I really wanted to check the system out before then, but couldn't find a compelling reason to do so. Getting it for $300 with a pack in game made the decision much easier. Although I'm glad I paid less than I would have a year ago, I'm really sorry I didn't get this system before. While I don't yet own a PS4 or Xbox One, I do own a 360 and a PS3. I can genuinely say that the Wii U is my favorite system to game on. I seriously haven't had this much fun with a Nintendo system since the Super Nintendo. I'm now at the point that if I can get a game for all three of those consoles, I will choose the Wii U...

Pros: Pro Controller, comfort, exclusive franchises, dual screen

Cons: Default storage size, software, online features

The system supports HDMI 1.4 @ 1080p resolution, and PCM surround audio or Stereo. It has built in WiFi and uses Bluetooth for communication. So if you're thinking...

Unique Game System That Needs More Attention

Posted

Pros: Unique gameplay using the gamepad. Nintendo's first HD console--games finally in 1080p. MiiVerse, Nintendo TVii, eShop, Off-TV Play

Cons: Lacks 3rd party support, Virtual Console should be amped up

Features The Wii U’s crowning feature is—not the HD—but the gamepad. No other system has such a feature like Nintendo. The 6.2 inch touch-screen includes motion sensitivity, a camera, stereo speakers, and two clickable analog sticks.  The gamepad knows when you have it pointed at the screen or when it’s parallel to the floor. This comes in handy for games like in Wii Fit U where you use the controller like it’s a tray of food—you must balance the items on the screen (and TV) by the way you hold it. It’s also useful for asymmetrical gaming. In Nintendo Land, one player has an individualized experience on the gamepad while the other players play on the TV.    One great...
