Wii U: Why Nintendo’s Console Is Your Best Option

Now, it’s no secret that the Wii U hasn’t been the most successful of consoles since its launch. After some rather promising sales in the launch period, the Wii U became rather stagnant and has been climbing out of its own grave ever since. Now that the PS4 and Xbox One have been released, next-gen is truly upon us, but for all of its shortcomings, here are the reasons I believe that the Wii U is still the best option for those looking to jump in to the future of gaming.

What to do with Zelda

So, yesterday I read an article about why zelda should be handed over to Retro Studios, and well, it got me thinking about what I want to see from Zelda games in the future. I’m personally a massive Zelda fan, it is my favourite gaming series of all time and as much as people may moan about it being stale, I think that Skyward Sword was one of the finest Zelda games to date. However, I understand why some people are beginning to find it boring, the last few games in the series have clearly suffered from the near perfect formula which the games have stood by for years.

5 games you didn’t know were controversial.

Controversy and video games spend more time together than the pages of a bible in a mosque. Most controversy is bullshit and usually caused as the result of poor research. However, it’s also an issue that as gamers we’re going to see, a lot. So I wanted to show you how easily you can make anything seem controversial if you look at it the right way, to remind people that most of the controversy you see, is just people reading into things too much.

qwertee

 

Hey guys, I have another awesome site for you guys, enjoy.

Over at qwertee.com they have a bunch of limited edition shirts that are awesome, many of them are very gaming related, but nearly all of them have cool, geeky references in them. For example look at this design for a nintendo avengers shirt.

Most of the shirts there are amazing. Designed by the community, and voted for by them too, you’ll see a bunch of different art styles and references on there. What’s also really cool is that, because they’re all limited edition, you’ll be happy to know that you’re one of the only people to ever own the shirt, making it extra special.
