Lucas M. Thomas: I'm in a classic conundrum. I've got my Wii U pre-order taken care of, so I'm assured that the system itself will be mine as soon as it launches – no problem there. But now I've got to decide which of the many launch titles I'm going to get too. ZombiU? Scribblenauts Unlimited? Tank! Tank! Tank!? The options are already overwhelming my mind and wallet, and I'm worried that I might miss out on beating the crowd and bringing home a critical game if I don't decide soon and get those pre-orders in place as well.
In the middle of this mental chaos, though, I am experiencing some comfort – because not every Wii U launch title will be available in those brick-and-mortar stores. I won't have to fight off any other gamers or put any pre-order money down for these games, because inventory never runs out for them. And I won't even have to go outside to get them.
I speak, of course, of the Wii U's eShop games.
