REVIEWS Astro A38 Wireless Headset Review
With the launch of the A38s, Astro has clearly shown that they can rock our eardrums off even if we aren’t sitting in our living rooms.

Destiny Review
With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

PREVIEWS Skylanders Trap Team Preview
While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

Latest Nintendo Direct Showcases Wii U Chat, Details Miiverse

In a brand-new episode of Nintendo Direct, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata and company shed light on a few Wii U-centric features that until now have remained shrouded in mystery.

On November 18th, when you boot up your Wii U for the first time, you'll be taken to the WaraWara Plaza, Nintendo's previously revealed social Miiverse hub. You'll be able to read messages from your friends and see what the rest of the community is playing.

The system's video chat application "Wii U Chat" was also detailed, and in the video above you can watch Reggie Fils Aime and Mr. Iwata put the service to the test. Listening to Reggie attempt to speak Japanese is particularly entertaining. As expected, you can draw on the tablet while you chat—a nice addition, but unless you're five years-old I can't imagine you'll use it all that much.

Let us know what you think of these latest announcements in the comments below.
