Wii U: A Fanboy Per/Retro-spective

I recently wrote an article published on about my thoughts about the new Wii U, from a fanboy’s perspective. I am really happy with it. Maybe it will convince you to go out and buy a Wii U right now!

My favorite excerpts are:

But I ended up trading that Nintendo 64 and all of my games for a Sony Playstation at the very same game store in which I had originally fallen in love with it.  The Sony Playstation offered more mature games like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy. (Later in life, of course, I regretted parting with my Nintendo 64, and I’ve since worked to rebuild my collection.)


But that brings us today – the Wii U about to launch. Wii U is a horrible name, by the way. I wasn’t as disappointed by the Wii name as some were back in 2006. I would have preferred Nintendo Revolution. (Of course, that name would just be painful to swallow now.) But this new name is just downright confusing. Is it a Wii? Yes… but no. It still works with all our wiggle waggle wiimotes, but they are launching traditional controls that look awfully similar to another famous controller.
