In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Has anyone from GR got to try ZombieU yet? I don't remember seeing much on it here but from what I've seen of it so far it looks pretty awesome.

I'm getting a Wii U. The whole tablet controller thing does interest me and some of the games look pretty cool, like ZombiU.

I'm sure that's just going to make me rage like I did in Dark Souls though.

I'm definitely interested to see where the system ends up. I still feel like there are a ton of possibilities with the touch screen, despite years and years of DS games.

Nintendo has done a really terrible job at marketing the WiiU. Most people don't even know what it is. Hell, even I thought at first it was an add-on kind of like the Sega CD or 32X.

A lot of people still think its an add-on controller for the Wii. Not good.

I didn't know what it was either LOL

A serious conversion I had at work with a co-worker who is also a gamer.

Me: What is WiiU exactly ?
Co-Worker: It's a handheld Wii.
Me: Like the DS?
Co-Worker: Yes, it is the new handheld but it only plays Wii games, i think.

So nobody has played it yet? I'd like some feedback if I'm going to get one.

So, you don't exactly need a Wii for it?

It's a completely new console.

The Wii controller (with Motion Plus required) can be used with the WiiU but otherwise it is all new.

If they had called it the Wii 2, I don't think they would be having this confusion.

The problem is that they're dealing with the same casual audience that they introduced to console gaming. They need to introduce them better to the concept of a new console generation too, I guess.

Got a few hours of play with it.

I got to try
Project 1000 or whatever it is called now
Nintendo land? I don't remember what it is called you had a different mini game based on what nintendo universe you are in. Ie. Zelda had a co-op rail shooting and slashing, Luigi had a ghost hide and seek sort of thing.
That Zombie game.
Sorry if I'm killing the naming of what games they are I'm a bit tired.

Anyways, I can tell you the tablet is really light. Extremely light and the controllers are fairly decent the only problem I had is with the R1 and L1 buttons. I can't get used it for some reason, I kept forgetting it existed. It probally has to do with the size of the controller it's not big at all but I don't know I think with more experience with it I'll grow on me. Also the touch screen is pretty sensitive . I really didn't have ny problem with it aside from the camera. The way they had it set up was not ment for tall people.

<.< I'll add and edit this later on when I get some rest.

I meant the demo stage. But if you actually had it just have it a good distance away and have space. If you lived in a cramped area then well your fucked.

Um... how so Noritama? What did you need a whole lot of room for? I played a bunch last week and everything was sitting down.

We were all standing up during ours. When I was playing ZombiU. I had trouble adjusting my height to read correctly with the game. Ie. When you use your camera to see certain things ingame through your Tablet.
Like I said at home it shouldn't be a problem.

Fun fact about Zombi U's scanner mode. You can control it with the analog sticks. YESSSSS.

Sounds like I had a much better demo experience than you, lol, although I doubt they made you try U Sing.
