What happens with VR I think will be vastly more interesting than the new NX, I love me some Nintendo, but the Wii U was uninspired after what I genuinely thought, and still do, was a very innovative product in the Wii. It captured the imagination of people, as well it should've, even if you didn't have to do the gestures, doing them still worked. Anyways, I didn't really read the article to be honest, I'll wait till E3 to let Nintendo tell me what the hell they are actually doing, with that sick new mascot.

The giant crab teamsters union will probably file a grievance after this.

I really don't want to buy a wii u just to play mario maker, especially with the nintendo nx on the horizon... but on another level, I want to. Damn it.

There are a handful of other solid-ass games too--Super Mario 3D Land is fantastic, Mario Kart 8 is a lot of fun if you still have some Mario Kart itch (plus the soundtrack is a joy to listen to), Bayonetta 2 (bundled with 1) is a lot of stupid fun, Smash Bros. is more Smash Bros. if you're into that, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is a solid, vibrant platformer, Wind Waker HD is an especially nice package if you missed out on playing the original, and Splatoon's (from what I've heard and seen because I don't own it) quite fun too.

Bayonetta and Super Mario Land would be easy buys, the rest I'd definitely skip. I guess the one thing about the Wii U is that it's still pretty cheap, especially if I buy it used.

Funny, this is my first COD in...oh, maybe 5 years, and even with that much span it doesn't feel like much has changed. Yes even though I can climb up walls and send a thwaft of bees/nanothingamabobs at people. Admittedly my problem with games in general is I tend to just want to power through them, rather than get good at them, so a lot of the nuance is lost on me. Gone are the days where I would set things on the hardest difficulty. I enjoy the game as much as I can with this way of thinking, and the co-op can be fun, funner than I've ever found it in something like Halo, which I thought kinda broke the game.

a mistake would be to merely match the capabilities of the ps4 and xb1. though knowing nintendo's history that's a mistake that's likely to happen. im also sure the portability has something to do with wanting to be backwards compatible with the wii u.
