From what I've heard, ZombieU's been getting mixed reviews and that's the only original game that interested me.

I am not enticed by the WiiU. When I play games I like to look at, y'know, the game. Not my hands.

Yeah. I was kind of hoping they were go for like... better graphics and motion control for the newest console. It also seems very awkward to hold and play a video game with...



I really don't think Nick Jonas did such a bad job as Marius. Like, I think they could've gotten someone better, yeah. But Michael Ball? Really? He may one the best, if not the best, but bro is like, 50. I'm not sure how well he could play a 17/18 year old student lol

And Gerard Butler was the worst Phantom ever. He can't sing and it's a freaking musical.


Also, I'm not comfortable with Russell Crowe's singing abilities. From the trailer it just didn't sound like he'd be able to sing Stars and uh, his last song well. (The song title is a spoiler lol, and there may be one person who hasn't seen the musicals, any of the movies, or read the book. Wow.)

A friend has the Wii U and complained that on the first day it had an update that was so long he watched an entire baseball game while it downloaded. He says he really liked ZombieU and Boyfriend is salivating about it but I just really can't get on board with it.

I already have a lukewarm response to the Wii as a whole, I just really don't care for motion control stuff, so going out and getting the Wii U seems absurd to me. Skyward Sword is genuinely the only time the motion controls have been implemented in a way that feels fluid and actually makes sense for the system.Maybe I just can't work well with motion control stuff? When the other games can be played with a regular controller it seems to me like the motion control aspect is kind of unnecessary.

I'm in no hurry to buy another Nintendo console that will collect dust. Call me when Bayonetta 2 and a new Metroid game that's not terrible is out and we'll talk.

<--- Did buy a 3DSXL today though, because reasons.

Hey You don't have to justify sheep buying to me bro. I went out and spent $9 on a 12oz cup from Starbucks because it had a fox on it and a sparkly straw.

I thought about buying a Wii U at launch for the New Super Mario Bros. U, but I'm not doing it.

Not because I didn't plan to carry through, but because the game store I shop at is not expecting any Wii U from their suppliers on launch.

Just as well --- but I'm still getting one for a mainstream title at some point.

After spending about 3 hours with my 3DerpS XL, I have zero regrets tossing it on my credit card. HASHTAG YOLO HASHTAG NINTENDO SWAG!

I've actually had no problem coming by the system. Nintendo World is like 5 blocks from my office and had a bunch, and 2 Gamestops near me had em in stock late Sunday. Anyone expecting to buy one and turn it around for profit on ebay/craigslist is kind of S.O.L.


Not sure if unpopular or not, but atheists have become the new born-agains in terms of annoyance, at least for me. Someone on my FB wall posted some stupid poster which (paraphrasing) compared raising children under religious beliefs as a form of child abuse.

I DONT EVEN PEOPLE.

I'm also going to be getting one "at some point". There's no rush (I have a half-dozen games at home that I haven't played yet anyways) but Pikmin 3. Do need.
And while the Nintendoland games would probably be mostly useless to me since multiplayer is not a thing that happens in my household, I really liked how the tablet controller was integrated into the designs of the minigmaes I tried.

I might be able to get one from EBGames (Which is an offshoot of GameStop...?), but I don't *need* it right now to justify going there and dealing with the questionnaire during the sales process.

Unless I can say "I'll take the EDGE card if you shove it up your ass right here.", but that's mean.
