So does this thing work with most Wii U games? My little 5-year-old sister is having some troubles with the huge as fuck regular Wii U controller and I'm wondering if this would be a good replacement. She mostly plays New Super Mario Bros. Wii U, but it would kinda suck if it didn't work with most games.

Also, does this thing even work with regular Wii games? I recently bought a regular Wii controller which doesn't even connect properly with my Wii U most of the time.

I personally love tasting and drinking beers from all around the world, from all types of different breweries. Yes, it's an acquired taste, I'll give you that, but acting like drinking liquor or girly cocktails makes you better in any way at all is really fucking hilarious and you should probably not drink at all.

A lot, if not most XBLA Games on Demand games aren't showing up on the homepage and produce errors on the console when selected. Anyone else experiencing this? Trying to buy Resident Evil 4 HD, but no dice.

Looks like FIFA 13 with a couple of new shaders. Animations and general appearance of the character models still looks about the same.

@mrjorowe: The AI just manages to piss me off in a way that only the first Puzzle Quest could, it just feels unfair. They can easily make almost impossible tackles, they somehow squirm past your defenders as if they were invisible and then score. Even when the AI controls some of the most aggressive players in the world, it almost never fouls unless they do that stupid shirt-pull thing.

But yeah, PES is terrible.

@awesomeusername:

I'm just calling it what it is. You hit the ball with your foot. Football. Get over it.

Also, the thing with the two identical threads was an accident, because my browser just kind of crapped out as I was creating the other one and was left with the impression that it wasn't created at all. Sorry about that. Would have deleted it, if I could.

Is it just me, or does it seem like EA Games is getting back into the groove of minor tweaks and roster updates with the FIFA franchise? The new graphics engine, which is exclusive to next-gen consoles, doesn't impress me at all (but then again, neither do other games announced for the new systems), the fact that they are advertising ball physics as much as they are really seems like they're grasping for straws etc etc.

I just wish they would fix some generally game-ruining stuff before adding minor features and tweaks as if they thought they were pretty much done with the core game, which they are absolutely not. The rubber-band-AI is awful and higher difficulties just make it cheaper and harsher, rather than having the CPU use better tactics. Team balance and performance is also completely effed up, I mean I get that it tries to be at least a little balanced, but no way does FC Köln play as well as Real Madrid. Defending is a joke with defenders running at each other, not cutting off runs and blocking flanks etc. The accuracy of the passing is also willy nilly. Animations and game flow don't even remind me of actual football, even with the game speed set to slow.

And that's just gameplay stuff. I personally love playing career modes in sports games and the career mode is uh...decent, but there are also problems. I hate how the stats only change based on the age of the player. It just seems silly that every player below 20 years of age suddenly starts gaining stats as if they're the next Ronaldo or something. Player potential should be completely randomized, which I think would make playing multiple career modes also more interesting. Also, there isn't really much to do once you've got your squad set up and spent your money except for playing matches I suppose. Doing interviews before matches doesn't really do jack either.

Just a lot of stuff that seems iffy about the last game, which I'm pretty sure they won't address because they don't really have to, to sell copies of the game and that makes me sad. What they have now has the potential to be really fun and great if they'd just fix a couple of fundamental stuff.
