Robotgeek Goes Hands On With the Wii U

When first approaching the Wii U, it may look a little off-putting. For starters, the system itself is quite small, and does not convey any sense of power. It’s smaller than any current-generation system, and initially doesn’t have the same strong presence that is found in the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 systems. Furthermore, the controller looks bulky and cumbersome at first glance. The screen in the middle widens the controller, making it look something like an over-sized PlayStation Portable. Due to this, it is easy to see why some write off the Wii U as a stop-gap between generations, or even consider it inferior to current systems. It just doesn’t look very powerful when seen for the first time.

Luckily, looks can be deceiving. After trying out the Wii U for a short time, I can easily say it may be the most fun console I have played in a long time. (Assassin's Creed III, Batman: Arkham City - Armored Edition, E3, Next-Gen, Pikmin 3, Ubisoft, Wii U)

"which is fairly impressive considering this is Nintendo’s first foray into the high-definition world."

I dont see how thats impressive seeing as its old tec.
Regardless, apart from Nintendos rubbish presentation, when you really think about it, the line up isnt all that bad. I was hoping for a killer app on launch day but that doesnt seem to be the case. If I was to get this when it comes out itl probably be Rayman

He also said Batman was really fun, utilising the Gamepad well. Nice, I haven't played Arkham. Anyone recommend Arkham City?

Oh hell yeah!!! I'm not even a big Batman fan, but the Arkham games are a must.

can anyone recommend Arkham city??
what rock you been living under.

even tho most people on here dismissed it as an old port, what they failed to say was it's also one of the best games released in the past year.

if you havent played it, you definitely need to pick it up, though i would wait a bit, i dont see the WiiU version staying at $60 for too long(asumming they price it like that)

Heard its a good game, haven't played it. The Wii U version of Ninja Gaiden doesn't look too bad either... could be a second purchase if I have the cash

I'd be cautious with that. Unless they completely retooled it, it still should be a terrible game.

They supposedly fixed it and now it's miles ahead of what came out on Xbox and PS3...
