Author’s Note: In this video I made the statement that Bayonetta is out today. While this may be true if you live in Japan, other regions (including the U.S.) will have to wait until October 24 to get in on the action.
When the Wii U launched a couple of years ago, there were many questions surrounding the console and its viability amongst Sony and Microsoft’s yet-to-be released next-gen hardware. The Wii U had been seen as comparable to the Xbox 360 and PS3 graphically and far too confusing with it’s tablet peripheral, thus the reason many wrote the console off for a period of time. As time has gone by, Nintendo has continued to bring reasons not only why the Wii U is worth having in your living room, but why it’s a totally different experience when compared to anything Sony or Microsoft has done.
On today’s episode of Nerdist: Play, we’ll be discussing the current state of Nintendo’s Wii U console, and how it’s holding up after getting off to a rough launch back in 2012. Also, you’ll be getting a first hand look at a player who plays NBA 2K15 religiously. I’ll let you make what thou wilt out of what exactly that means.
I asked you guys on Twitter what the best Nintendo console was, and these were some of the responses that didn’t make it into today’s episode:
@Malik4Play 64. Flat out.
