    Worst Game Of The Year:

    Wii U Impressions:
    Its terrible! It isnt sold out, anywhere in this Chicago land area I live in. The Wii U will only sell to the faithfull. This may be one of the worst moves Nintendo has ever made.

    No Morgan, didnt buy a Wii U and dont insult me like that again! Nah, kidding. I did have some time with the Wii U and it was very unimpressive to say the least. I’ll get more time with it over the holiday break.

    You’re correct for calling me out on Far Cry 3. I have big respect for that series, it probably should replace Borderlands 2. I will buy Far Cry 3 soon.

    Also, next time you & chase hang out at the Official SONY Complex in Japan…tell him I said M.A.G. is terrible!

    I need to finish listening to the podcast….

    Skylanders is enormous! I just bought it yesterday for my daughter. She came home form school, I had it on my endtable, she saw it & went nuts! Shes been playing it ever since. Its actually a very good game.

    I agree with you on Counter Strike, Terrible!

    Wii U is selling terrilby! There are stacks of them at BestBuy, ToysRus, & Wal-mart. For a new console not to be sold out at this time isnt good at all. Think of it this way; what game is going to push Wii U sales after the holidays…Nothing. If the holidays cant sell the Wii U, nothing can; only GTA5 as an exclusive, Halo as an exclusive, & COD as an excluxive…those are the only games that can jumpstart sife in a console. Wii U is done.

    That was a stellar review of the Wii U. Youve confirmed everything I was thinking, Wii U is going to have a very hard time at the retail counter.

    I agree with Chase167 on a price cut comming to a town near all of us!

    Favorite Features on Current Consoles:
    XBOX Live: cross game chat, everything is integrated seemlessly, everything transfered from XBOX 1 to 360. Also, the proprietary Harddrive: when our consoles redringed, all of our information was saved. I sent back 4 consoles in the begining, never paying for one of them. When the Slim released, my son nor I, have had a problem since. Also, the transfer from old 360 harddrive information to 360Slim was perfect, didnt lose anything at all.

      The Wii U may not be for everyone, and it definitely wasn’t meant to replace any of my other consoles, but it did offer the dynamic of the second screen, which i found very interesting, also Mario, Zombie U, Lego city, and Bayonetta 2 coming to the system makes me not worried about having games to play on the system, it may not sound like a lot of games but its the same issue with my 360 the amount of retail games i own is just as slim so i just want access to games and if i have to own these specific boxes in order to get that then so be it. (until i grow tired of it)
