Free online is what it has going.
Absolutely, that exchange at the end was funnier than I expected.I swear they were trying to sandbag each other here lol. "So you're sure this will come out next year?" "What about Star fox"?
"This must be a dungeon" "uhh"
If you ask me, Odyssey isn't worth your time, but I seem to be an outlier in that regard here. Pretty disappointed in my Switch outside Sega AGES and Ring Fit. I sold off BotW, Odyssey, and Octopath even though I typically never sell anything.and a single exclusive (Mario Odyssey) that looks worth my time.
ZombiU 2 was supposed to be a thing, but the executives at Ubisoft shut it down really early in development. I'm still curious about how it could've turned outIt really is. I wasn't expecting much with Ubisoft attached, and at the time, classic "Survival Horror" was definitely not a thing so I was expecting a shooter or something dumb. What I got was one of the best gameplay experiences of my life. For me, it felt like I was playing the OG Resident Evil in first person and I was just blown away at how much I enjoyed the game. Still do. I also own the PS4 version and it's good, but the Wii U version is the best way to play.
Here's something that I think people forget, Resident Evil 6 released on 10/02/2012. ZombiU released 6 weeks later on 11/18/2012. That's what the state of "Survival Horror" was in. ZombiU came out of nowhere and was really trying to do something specific and unique to that era in gaming. Such a shame that reviewers trashed it, a sequel with proper polish could have been GOTY material.
I loved my Wii U. I only had a Wii and was saving for a 360 when the WiiU got announced. So, I saved for that instead.Nintendo seems to have a knack for developing hardware that hits one end of the extremes; runaway success (Switch, Wii) or low selling "also ran" (GameCube, Wii U)...which must be maddening for a company; hit a home run just to strike out at your next attempt.
Yet somehow Nintendo has a second extreme they love to hit...making their best games for their "worst" hardware. Not to say their first party output in Wii wasn't awesome, but GameCube and Wii U IMO had better "Nintendo games" for it than the Wii or the 64 before it did.
I still remember standing in line on launch day in Chicago to get a Wii U...all because I got confused as to what day you were able to pre-order and I missed it by an entire day. Took awhile in line but I was able to buy one on launch day and since then I have had an absolutely blast every time I played it. You 100% can't argue with the fact that it failed commercially but as far as a console to play and collect for...straight gold. Especially considering the prices haven't gone through the roof yet compared to a lot of other Nintendo stuff.
The Switch is amazing in it's own right but I miss the whole Gamecube/Wii/Wii U quirky hardware; all classic Nintendo designs keeping the PowerPC architecture and their "were gonna do our own thing...thanks anyway" ethos.
It'll be interesting to see what comes after Switch. But for me the Wii U is still one of my favorite Nintendo consoles of all time. Sad it failed...but awesome in spite of it.
Anyone else love some Wii U?
This. Standalone is not even close to being Nintendo`s best console, the statement is almost offensive considering the existence of stuff like the Nes and Snes.As just the Wii U? No. But if you consider the Wii library and modding it to accept GameCube titles then it may be the best.
Why do you compare it with the PS2? They are not even in the same generation.I bought a Wii U only and just only for this:
Then they never released it, so I sold it to a friend that was Nintendo's Fan.
IMO, the PS2 was the best console, because it delivered what gamers wanted the most: Games, a ton of games and a ton of great games!
