My Year Review Of The Wii U

The Stylish Jerk: It has been almost a year since the Wii U was released. How do I feel about the console? Skeptical but optimistic. (Wii U)

I honestly still don't know what a Wii U exactly is. Is it like a Vita?
Chupa-Chupa  +   409d ago
It's like a PS4, but 10x better.

I can't even tell if you guys are serious or not...

@Silent I am being completely serious. I am a PC gamer and have owned PS1,PS2,PS3, and X360, but really haven't paid attention to Nintendo since Gamecube. Just being honest, I kinda want to know what it is exactly.

Read the review Grave and it will tell you everything you need to know and where Nintendo is at.

Chupa-Chupa sumed it up best.
Its like a Ps4, but 10x better, better quality games, better gameplay, offscreen play, free to play online,backward compatable, these are just a few of the features.

Definately the best console to get if your looking to get a new console.

basically its just a giant DS, the controller has a built in touchscreen for you to sift through inventory without pausing the game and breaking immersion, or you can use it to scan stuff, or it can just give you a secondary view of a situation (overhead view, rear view) to enhance gameplay. but you can also play games exclusively on the screen when someone else is using the TV (or you need to go to the bathroom but SIMPLY CANT STOP PLAYING).
theres other stuff too, a built in game-centric social network to ask questions, post screens, or discuss the game. but it's a new system, not an add on, and it has a ton of great games coming in 2014 and later this year.

Thanks! Thats what I was kinda looking for. +Bubz to you.

It's a tablet in your hand, a second screen experience. Many commenters have already discussed the problems with the Wii U I'll tell you exactly why it is not selling.

Price: Everyone can proclaim all they want about how the 3DS software sold the 3DS. Software helped, but it was the price. If the 3ds was 250 still it would not sell. Families and gamers see Nintendo as a second console experience or a casual machine. If it launched for $250 it would not have had the same problems.

Good article.

I totally agree. Last year was a massive disappointment when I bought a WiiU at launch but it's recently started to win me over with games like pikmin and Zelda.

It's still got a long way to go and unless it gets some momentum over Xmas then it's gonna get passed over by the ps4, but at least now there is hope.

I love the wii u i dont care what anyone says

bought 2 games since launch 1 year ago. the wii u will be the only console in history where i paid more for the hardware than for succeeding games. this is a great accomplishment if you asked me. there are not many companies out there with THAT amount of delusional behavior. their deceased founder - who by the way hated gamers and gaming - left a very questionable culture behind of "ignore the buyers, ignore the market and the rulebreaker will win". that was true for 1 time (wii) and 1 time only. because although humans as a species are as dumb as can be they KNOW when a company is just in for the moneygrab. hence no memorable sales figures for the - wrongly marketed - wii u. the biggest mistake was keeping the name wii. this alienated the ex-fans even more and was NOT the thing to lure them back. delusional, as i said. the whole nintendo-leading-staff needs to be replaced.

Very, well said. I still want this console for some reason, but afraid it will become obsolete or Nintendo will just flat out give up on the software just like the Wii. So I will wait another year.

This makes me wonder why you bought a Wii U in the first place if there's only two games in the catalogue that appealed to you. If you like Nintendo "style" games then there's plenty for you to go at, if you prefer multiplats you probably should have waited for the PS4/XBone :)
truechainz  +   408d ago
Lol so you bought the console and are complaining about only having bought 2 games? Sounds like you don't know how to research your potential purchases before you buy. Regardless of how good or bad Nintendo does, you should probably take a look at yourself for that.
