Nintendo WiiU: My Thoughts

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 12, 2014, 1:23 PM
Skin by TMNT-Raph-fan

I am in the mood for posting a journal entry explaining my thoughts about the Nintendo WiiU, which I was able to play just recently. As I may have already mentioned quite a few times, I have always been a huge fan of Nintendo game systems, which I've enjoyed playing since I was a kid, and I also like to collect as many games for each system as part of my own personal collection to play every now and then. Anyway, I've actually been getting kind of bored playing games on my Nintendo Wii, which I've been playing ever since I bought my console back in 2008, so I felt like it was time for me to move on to Nintendo's current generation system. I was able to save up my money these past few months until I saved about $300 to purchase a Nintendo WiiU, which I decided to order online instead of buying one directly at a store like Wal-Mart so that way I wouldn't have to pay extra tax, and it arrived at my house less than a few days later. After taking my WiiU out of the box it was mailed in, I was able to set up the system without any trouble, and I started playing after being able to take care of some other things such as taking my dogs out for a walk and eating some dinner.

One of the most noteable features to come with the Nintendo WiiU would have to be the game pad controller, which is surprisingly huge for a device to play games with, and it has quite a few other features to make it even more unique. For instance, the game pad controller has a built-in touch screen that you can use as a second screen if you want to continue playing games while watching TV; It even allows you to adjust the volume and change the channel on your TV set by accessing the touch screen as well. The controller also has a camera and microphone very similar to the Nintendo DSi and/or Nintendo 3DS, both which I haven't been able to try out for any games just yet. When I was playing a game on my WiiU for the first time, I was able to notice that the controller also featured a volume switch and a headphone jack, which I was able to use because of my mother going to sleep while I was playing.

In case anybody is wondering which games I was able to get for my Nintendo WiiU, I was able to purchase the bundle pack that came with two titles on the same disc: "New Super Mario Bros. U" and "New Super Luigi U" (which is an alternate version of the game that was released to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Luigi). I was also able to buy a copy of the disc version of "DuckTales: Remastered" that I bought at a local Game Stop; Even though I already have the digital version of the game on my Xbox 360, I decided to get a physical copy for my WiiU while spending the rest of my money that was saved on my gift card that I got for Christmas last year. After finally being able to save up my money to get a Nintendo WiiU, I should be able to save up my money for some other games that I plan on getting soon such as "Mario Kart 8", "Sonic Lost Worlds", "Super Mario 3D World", and the new "Super Smash Bros." game that will be coming out soon.

Even though I've just started playing my Nintendo WiiU recently, I actually find it to be such an underrated system that was made for the current generation of video games, especially since the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have just come out not too long ago, and many gamers are paying attention to the games that are being released on both consoles; Personally, I don't really care which new games are available on either console, especially if it's a bunch of FPS games that are anything but enjoyable to a casual gamer such as myself. This is probably the reason why I've always preferred to play Nintendo game consoles - They always tend to focus on innovation and creativity for the games that are released on each console, which actually makes them worth playing no matter how old the gamers are. When it comes to designing video game consoles, Nintendo always does try to make each console quite unique for playing games on (with the exception of the Virtual Boy, despite how revolutionary it was at the time). The Nintendo WiiU may not have the same kind of powerful hardware as the other consoles of the current generation, but it does offer plenty of gameplay with the many familiar game titles that have been released on it so far, and I think that's all that should really matter most, especially if you're the kind of gamer who loves playing certain types of games just for fun.
