REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

How does that sing-along song go? "Magicka 2, Magicka 2, for the Playstation 4, and the PC, too..."

Wii U Day One Patch Download Is A Whopping 5GB

Posted on Saturday, November 17 @ 22:01:10 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

Those of you looking to pick up a Wii U, throw it in your media center, and begin enjoying the next generation are in for a rude awakening.

Upon booting up the Wii U a mandatory firmware update needs to be downloaded which weighs in at an absurd 5GB. Inherently, you'll spend your first hour or two downloading and applying the update before you can dive in and begin enjoying your big purchase.

Forums are flooded with people patiently waiting for the download to complete. Those with slower bandwidth speeds are really in a sore spot with the update taking an entire night.

If you plan to get a Wii U today, make sure you have some popcorn ready.
