    I share a lot of Lewis’ feelings about this lead-up to Wii U’s launch. I was really, really hyped for Wii, much more so than what I’m currently feeling for Wii U, but at the same time I think about 90% of that hype and excitement was purely for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Wii’s motion control was certainly a big draw for me, but looking back I don’t think it was any more or less attractive than the tech demos we’ve seen for Wii U so far. Give me the games, Nintendo, and I’ll probably love Wii U just as much!

    That said, even if Wii U does have a stellar launch line-up, I’m still wary of getting too excited about it simply because Wii hasn’t really fulfilled the pre-launch promises it offered regarding motion control. I’m skeptical that the novelty factor of Wii U’s controller will be received in exactly the same way by developers (regardless of what they said at E3) and that only Nintendo will end up producing games which truly live up to the hardware specifications. In the end, I think Wii U will be the make-or-break console for Nintendo when it comes to gimmicky control schemes – they might have done it once, but can they do it again to the same standard and sustain it? We’ll have to wait and see…

    I would say that i’m glad you guys have the same feelings, although glad does not seem to be the correct word to use.

    Its quite worrying that people are not getting hyped for Wii U, but I really hope our feelins change before release.

    Noah got a PS3!? WELCOME TO THE FUTURE, MY FRIEND. When you eventually get around to getting that PSN ID set up, I’d be honoured to have you on my friends list. Mine’s ‘Zeer0id’. :)

    The same’s true for the rest of you DJSG folks as well, of course.

    When is pushing the Start button with the stylus convenient? Just about any time you’re holding the 3DS in book mode! This became extremely apparent when I was playing Rhythm Heaven over the summer. I would constantly have to pause that game to restart after my screw-ups. Only way to do that is with the Start button, and believe me, it’s gets pretty annoying to either reach around with your non-dominant hand or tuck away the stylus for a second to push the button with your thumb. A quick tap with the stylus was all it took!

    Does that make sense? Or am I crazy?

    I might be crazy.
