As it stands, the Wii U will go down in history as Nintendo’s biggest home console flop. Confusing hardware, poor messaging and continued lack of third party support sunk this one from the start. That being said, there were still a number of games worth playing on the Wii U. In no particular order, here’s a list of my favourites.
It’s easy to dismiss the Wii U. Compared to the Xbox One or the PlayStation 4, the Wii U lacks horsepower to pump out the best graphics. It also featuring an unusual tablet controller. On top of that, Nintendo has a myriad of perception problems to fight in terms of hardcore gamers who still write off Nintendo as a company that produces products for kids, to the casual crowd who doesn’t know what a Wii U is, to the scorned Nintendo fan who thought that the Wii was a disappointment.
I don’t blame anyone for having grievances with Nintendo or concerns with the Wii U. However, while the world continues to buzz about its competition, I think the Wii U currently delivers the best bang for your buck. It’s placing on the totem pole will likely change with time, though the benefits that come with owning one are already well worth it and should pay dividends in the future. Here’s 6 reasons why you should buy a Wii U today!
My 2013 game of the year is the focus of this episode. Watch as my Princess Peach tackles levels from world 5 and 6. Along the way, I also talk about some of my other favourite games of 2013, the Wii U’s merits as a console and the challenges that come with capturing gameplay off of a PlayStation 4.
