General WiiU Discussion Thread

So, let's just make this the overall WiiU thread for discussing anything about it which doesn't really need its own thread.

Zero likes the system, he really does. Zero didn't keep up with it much before it came out because he didn't think he'd be buying one any time soon. But Zero did, and the more Zero messes around with the WiiU features, the more Zero is pleasantly surprised. The internet browser on the GamePad is godlike. Zero can already see it becoming his main device for leisurely surfing the web at home. Browsing Netflix menu's runs WAY smoother than my PS3, too. Zero can't really compare it to Netflix on 360 because he never use it since he hate the way the search function operates. But it's really slick on WiiU.

One thing Zero can't help but want, though, is some sort of trophy/achievement system. When achievements were first introduced Zero didn't really give a rat's ass about 'em. But they've really grown on Zero over the years and they really do motivate Zero to get more outta my games and extend their life. Hopefully, they'll decide to implement something in the future. Coins would be ideal in Zero's opinion... with the classic Mario Bros. coin sound effect.

Because the GamePad is so big, Zero thought it would feel really awkward and take a while to get used to, but Zero adapted to it quickly. However, it does start to make Zero's right wrist ache after a few hours. And the battery life on the GamePad sucks, pointblank. Zero is planning on picking up a Pro Controller when he gets paid Thursday, though.

As for games, so far Zero has Nintendo Land, Super Mario Bros. U, and Darksiders II. Nintendo Land is mad fun. Some of the games are way better than others but overall it's pretty damn solid. Zero doesn't know if it's actually $60.00 solid, but it's worth it if you're buying the premium bundle system. NSMBU looks so great in HD. It's just amazing to be playing a 2D Mario Bros. game in high definition. That aside, it's probably even better than previous installments in the series. It feels like it's more of its own game rather than a random throwback to old school Mario. The world maps will remind you Super Mario World, too, which is awesome. It's no SMG 1 or 2, but it is a really good 2D Mario game. Zero kinda just bought Darksiders (never played a Darksiders game before) because Ninja Gaiden 3 sucks. Yes, even the WiiU version, and Zero wanted something technically impressive to see how WiiU games look in comparison to the same game on a current-gen system. It does look somewhat better in Zero's opinion, but it's important to remember that the WiiU's abilities are far from being pushed to their limits yet.

Zero will post some additional thoughts after spending more time with it but thus far it's very impressive overall and Zero is happy with his purchase.

This would be awesome. Disappointed how they aren't in there already though, I remember reading somewhere that there would be "accomplishments" or something along those lines. Also disappointed about the remote having bad battery life, but that was obviously going to be the case.

I remember that too. I think it was a thread on here.

Coins with the sound effect would be ****ing awesome!

What Zero remembers hearing was that developers could implement achievements/trophies within the game itself. If any of you played some of the pre-trophy era PS3 games such as Devil May Cry 4 or Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (before it got a trophy patch), well, that's how Zero imagines it will be for WiiU games.

Don't misunderstand, though, Zero isn't an OCD platinum hunter or anything. After all, Zero only has 3 platinum trophies out of 1300, and, if Zero remembers correctly, has never gotten every achievement on a 360 game. Zero would simply like to have the option there because sometimes the mood to go for the trophies does strike Zero. A great move for every system/game would be an option to turn off trophies for games where you don't wanna worry about it. Some achievements are cool, and Zero likes to look back on 'em like, "yeah, Zero remembers doing that shit", but some of them are just insanely hard and way too frustrating/time consuming.

Zero does really like the idea of buying digital goods with trophies/achievements, however.

It really lengthens the games life too. That's the best part.

I like the achievements/trophies so I can look back at them and remember the good times (and bad) I had with that particular game
