Yeah, I'm specifically referring to Wii U. Every time someone posts something related to their excitement about this system, I make an effort to review its features, and still I can't find anything about it that excites me personally. Meh...
It's got a touch screen? Mhmm...
It's kinda like a tablet...but you're tethered to the actual console. So, more limitations on my ability to game than an iDevice? Oh yeah, sign me up.
More recycled Mario textures from a handheld system a generation old...in HD -- woot!
Awkwardly sized controller -- only one of them included with the machine and probably expensive as hell to replace? Original-XBox redux but amplified in size and awkwardness.
Ubisoft once again there early pandering to Nintendo with ridiculous gaming concepts that are impossible to take seriously?
I get to play three- and four-year-old games in pretty much the same quality as 360/PS3 (unless you believe the nonsense spewing forth from the mouth of Reggie)? Yippie!
A new Mii gimmick?
A bonfire for my money? Now we're talking!
Hopefully my negativity isn't coming off too subtle. I really see no need for this system. Sure, it's necessary for Nintendo to continue along their path of Caligula-like market imperlialism, but is it really worthy of the modern gamer? The hype for this system, of which there seems to be little, comes off as forced to me -- folks desperately trying to convince themselves of the system's relevance. I simply can't see it. It feels like gross stagnation to me.
