Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

For me, no. This device does not bring Nintendo to the next level, it's simply a disappointing sequel. Doesn't a sequel need bring more to the table to get an equal grade to the original?

HD graphics is not a draw considering that current consoles already do that. Pass.

The new touch screen remote is a cool feature but it truly is only Wiimote 2.0 and not something on a new level so I'll pass.

Here is an article outlining some of the specs: article

Thoughts?

One word: games.

Make it or break it.

Nope. Nintendo has pretty much lost me.

What De-Ting and Used said.

Oh wow, it can do multiplatform games? I don't have two consoles and a PC that can do that already. And basically, the only things they offer for it are the vague promises of a Super Smash Bros game, which means that they've only just started it and it won't be around when they release it next year, if it even does get released next year.

Though it's far from ready now, it's going to need a lot of shit backing it in order to justify spending a likely $300-400 on it.

I don't think that I'll be getting it...but I'm one of the one console is enough for me guys.

But to jump on the bash wagon...more like Nintendo Wiik Sauce. Ha ha ha...hopefully that makes sense...

Sakurai hasn't finished Kid Icarus yet so it's easily like two-three years out...

I was thinking that the first time I saw its name. Then, I started predicting "U Wii" jokes.

Really only have one question I need answered in determining my puchase of the system. Will that controller play Angry Birds?

Wii U should have been the Wii in the first place.

My opinion. I'll probably buy it, but after it's received a couple of price slashes and when their library fills up.

The Wii is a nice console, but there just weren't enough good games. Though I do not regret the purchase. Smile

I'll probably do this, just like i'm waiting for the hardware revision and price drop of the 3DS before i buy it.

if they bring back non gimmicky old school classics, ie. zelda, donkey kong, mario, etc. built with the capabilities of the new hardware in mind, i'll be all over it. until i see that happen, i won't.

one day nintendo will learn they have to return to their roots, gimmicky shit doesn't sell. it does at first, then word of mouth spreads that it's terrible, and nothing more sells.

was so disappointed in the wii.

I've just had a thought... Does this mean the new Zelda game will be pushed back and released as a launch title for the Wii U?

I can't see this doing well in NA and Europe. However, in Japan it makes sense since many families live in small apartments where families do alot of sharing.

But growing up I always had my own space for gaming so there was never a need to let my parents use the same TV I was playing on.

^ Hahaha!

I think it's just going to be like TP was on Gamecube and Wii. This Zelda will be on Wii and Wii U.
