Pikmin 3 Impressions & Footage: Poor Showcase of the Wii U Game Pad

Impressions of Pikmin 3 say that, "Pikmin 3 is shaping up to be a terrific sequel despite being a confusing introduction to the Wii U system by showing how the new controller isn’t perfect for all Nintendo franchises."

Wait.. in the last seconds of the video you can see the reflection in the screen and unless I am wrong he is using a Wii remote in his hand not the Wii U Gamepad.

EDIT: Oh NM. Misleading title. He never used the Gamepad at all.
"I don’t argue that using the Wii Remote’s IR pointer isn’t the superior control method for Pikmin. There is no doubt that it is..

The lack of a compelling control method using a brand new system's unique controller is strange.

Even though the Wiimote is best for Pikmin it is still surprising that Nintendo can't come up with a good set up using the game pad.

Dude please stop trying to justify your BS headline. Nothing you said was anywhere in the topic or in the video..
You are just trying to get hits by trying to make it sound like the gamepad was used and wasnt any good.

Pikmin started as a Wii game using the IR pointer options. Something the gamepad doesnt do anyway and considering even the person playing the game admits that its the superior method of control why would Nintendo need to change it?

Believe the next to last one applies here. Seriously hope you get bubbled down for such a pathetic attempt.

But the Wii U Game Pad was being used, as a map while using the Wii remote at the same time. (Essentially being a two controller game now that I think of it) So I think the title fits but I understand why you dislike it.

Sorry to have upset you.
