After watching this video, I looked around in my room for anything I could balance on my head.

Cool beans, but why did this make me want one...

Because we want new consoles so damn bad and Nintendo is the only one who is putting out!

Man...I want a Wii U. HDMI CABLE INCLUDED!

I kind of wish they did more unboxings, especially if they are a lot like this one.

Microsoft and Sony are playing marketing chicken with each other.

The Wii U is the ultimate sidetalking phone.

Patrick was hitting the triggers on that controller with his middle fingers, which makes me think of a weird question I've always wondered.

Does anybody play like that? I mean, index fingers on the bumpers, middle fingers on the triggers (to use the xbox controller terminology I'm familiar with)? I always have used my index for both, because it feels weird to pull a trigger with your middles. I was always curious if I was using it the way most people do or not.

Told ya it was a weird question.

"Hey, guys, we got a Wii U. What should we do with it?" - Jeff

"Let's make a video of us trying to balance it on our heads." - Possibly Brad

And that's why I love Giant Bomb.

I loved the part when Brad had to put the stylus in the hole two times. Hell yeah.

Posted by Xandrius

Looks cool, can't wait to get mine. 30 seconds right? lol.. Just an idea, why not make a music video of clips interspersed with some dumb stuff or something funny. One game I'm very curious about is AC 3, I don't think anything was shown for it on wii u. I'm feeling like it might just turn out to be a bad port.

If there isn't a kinect style launch stream on the day of launch I'm gonna be seriously disappointed.

13:15 - "Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge - a game that no one wants in the first place or another version. Nintendo has a weird relationship with Tecmo."

Ouch! Sadly, that's true. :P

sigh, feels like yesterday when Jeff and Rich Gallup were unboxing a Wii on Gamespot.

Jeez, it hasn't really dawned on me how long this generation has lasted. The entirety of Giantbomb's existence is much shorter than this gen.

aw man, when brad was playing it It reminds me of my gamegear

Maybe I'll pick one up around next E3 when there is a slight price drop.

I do. Doesn't feel weird at all. It's weird that people make a distinction and talk about it all the time, though.

They'll never top the Gamecube in terms of looks for a console. THAT THING HAD A HANDLE ON IT!!

I do with the PS3. I rest my middle fingers on the very bottom of the L/R 2 buttons. On a 360 controller, I tend to rest my index fingers across the top of the controller in a way that lets me pull the triggers and "push" my finger up to hit the shoulder buttons.

Brad with a Gordon Freeman goatee sounds like a great thing. He should totally do it.

Posted by jonnyboy

Wii_U arrives at office so obviously job number one is to see who is best at balancing it on their head.

This is why I subscribe to Giantbomb.

Brad's looking pretty good with a beard. :)

Troubleshooting:
My Wii U system gamepad won't turn off!
  • In the event that your Wii U system gamepad gains the ability to maintain itself indefinitely without a traditional source of power, reference the section of this manual entitled "How to Mitigate a Sentient and Self-Deterministic Wii U Console."

For some reason, seeing this video made me realize I'm dropping almost $800 on Wii U launch day.

Wii U Deluxe, Pro Controller, New Super Mario Bros. U, Batman, Skylanders Giants, Zombi U, and Sonic Racing. $725 before tax is what my math says.

I'm psyched because this is step 1 of the two-step process for my next gen gaming. Step 2 is build a gaming PC.

Seeing whether you can balance the box of your head. That's why I come here. Great job guys.

I heard Ryan say "Romney" for some strange reason.

So I wonder if Nintendo is gonna do the same thing with the Wii U as they have done with the 3DS so far, just pump out remakes of nes/snes games..

Posted by selbie

LOL @ the cradle logistics

Posted by metalliccookies

I have to say after watching a number of Wii U unboxings this by far informed me the most :D (also its the only one where you opened and unpacked it like a normal person lol)

I have zero interest in this content. I will not buy the console and I care not for the games released.

I hope GB dosn't waste a lot of resources on this.

I also hope they cater to the whims and interests of one user.
