REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

5 Reasons Black Ops II Is Best On Wii U

Posted on Thursday, October 18 @ 11:30:00 Eastern by

Harmony In The Living Room

You might say that all of these improvements may be enough for a n00b like me to switch consoles. You might say that your clan is 360-only or that you couldn't give up your PSN friends list. I thought so too, but virtual warfare will soon bring peace to my living room.

Thanks to the Wii U GamePad and the console's ability to stream to the controller's screen, all of Black Ops II is playable in your hands. At any time, players are able to switch the game's visuals from their TV to the GamePad screen. My girlfriend and I only have one TV. As much as I'd like to turn Keeping Up With The Kardashians into a first-person shooter, it's just not happening.

I'll happily trade the nasty vermin on Xbox Live for the delicate balance struck in my home's entertainment schedule. Now I just have to hope that we don't end up arguing over whether to play Call of Duty or Nintendo Land.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II will land alongside the Wii U on launch day, Sunday, November 18. It'll also be out on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC on Tuesday, November 13.
