Wii U For Me?

I’ve bought most of Nintendo’s video game consoles over the years, so I was very excited about the announcement yesterday detailing their plans for the European release of their latest device – the Wii U. Whilst I’m sure it will be a great system, I think I will wait until there are more games available before I shell out the £250ish it will cost for it. I’ve bought plenty of games consoles on their release day, from the DS and 3DS to the midnight launch of the Dreamcast I attended. However, like the N64 and the Gamecube (both great systems) I think I need to see some more AAA titles up and running before I take the plunge. The novel new controller will probably give rise to excellent new and inventive games, but until I can pick them up off the shelf, I’ll wait.

You Found A Small Key

I’ve been playing the latest Legend of Zelda game on and off since it was released last year. Skyward Sword is great fun though it does owe an awful lot to Wii Sports Resort. My first Zelda game was Link to the Past, which I played on my brother’s SNES. It never really grabbed me at the time but back then I was a Sega fanboy obsessed with blue hedgehogs. Link’s Awakening on the Gameboy was the one that really made me see the light. Being on a portable system meant that I took the game with me everywhere. Ocarina of Time felt like the second coming but still to this day I find Majora’s Mask to be broken and almost unplayable. Windwaker was a highlight of the Gamecube years but Twilight Princess only ever felt like the Director’s Cut of Ocarina. There are other games in the series but I’ve either never played them or I’ve played them so little it’s not worth mentioning. Oh well, I guess that’s where the Virtual Console comes in.
