GenGAME writes: "Even now that it’s been three months since launch and the new shiny has kind of worn off, I’m still pretty darn impressed with Wii U based on what I’ve experienced so far. The GamePad is still my controller of choice whenever I’ve got the option, the drive to stir up discussion on Miiverse is still addictive, Off-TV Play still works more or less as fantastically as advertised – and the games so far have been surprisingly good, particularly for a new system’s launch titles.
"That said, to assert that its early months were absolutely stellar would be a bit of a stretch. Features and games touted for launch missed the deadline, the lineup for the moment is pretty barren, with only a few crumbs in the foreseeable future, and of course it’s got a heavily restricted account system that few people who actually care about such things are actually satisfied with. The best way to sum up the Wii U at this moment in its life is that it’s a great system with a lot of potential, but it’s creeping toward that potential at a snail’s pace."
