The Wii U: An oddly anachronistic chalice half empty

Is the Wii U a step backwards compared to the trusty, old Gamecube? Is Sony poised to swoop in on a market share Nintendo kickstarted but hasn't fully committed to? What are the best games on the Gamecube? Steven Hansen answers all this and more in a stirring, simultaneous look backward and forward. (3DS, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy VI, Mario Kart 64, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Next-Gen, Nintendo, PS Vita, PS3, Retro, Wii, Wii U, Zelda Wii U)

technically no its not but i see his point.. The wii u is still fresh & has much more to deliver before calling it out but as it stands, theres nothing beyond the aforementioned.. Yes u can play full games on the pad but is that really necessary? The items, maps, etc on the second screen is all the pad will be used for by devs other than nintendo themselves.. Sony might make a second screen just for that while nintendo invested so much into something people might not use..

Remaking gamecube games with the functionality they wouldve had with the gba hook up isnt exactly what everyone wants.. More games like what monolith soft is doing are more suitable.. We shall see what nintendo does but for now, all we have in sight for wii u is another round of mario kart, smash bros, mario, etc in HD.. Theyve already been done on 3ds so we know what to expect from the second screen.. Its just going to look better this time & POSSIBLY have second screen play with multiplayer that allows chatting.. POSSIBLY
