Wii U - More Impressions

You can find me on the Nintendo Network as:  inc.77
Anyway here's more quick impressions:

Likes:
- Miiverse is awesome!  It's more like Twitter than Facebook, except you can "Yeah/Unyeah" posts (similar to Facebook's Like).  You can also draw and the character limit is much much longer.
- Friend's list!  YES IT WORKS AND ITS EASY!  LOL
- The eShop is actually nice and working!  Unlike the 3DS when it first came out (a mess).  There's already so much games up on it!  I ended up picking up NSMBU (about 1.7 gigs) and ACIII (which is still downloading lol - 16 gigs)
- The Internet browser is actually usable!  You know how junky console browsers are so this one is a surprise.
- It has a download manager and it allows background downloading!  Yay!  It also has the option of letting you choose for it to shut down after downloads are complete.
- TV Off Play is the greatest thing ever!  The range is good!  I am able to play on the gamepad in any bedroom in the house which is great!
- Got a spare 2TB lying around and hooked it up.  Yay!  It works!  I misread and didn't see that anything over 3TB will not be seen by the WiiU which is the reason my previous attempt didn't work.
- Zombi U - I am enjoying it.  It's different and I don't mind the combat... yet.  The reviews on this thing is all over the place, but it might be something you'll enjoy.  The setting and atmosphere though is top notch.
- NSMBU - I played this game while lying in bed and its the greatest thing ever lol!
- Nintendoland - Need to try it with more people.  Though even with 2 players its good fun.



No Likey:
- Loading times... ugh...
- Miiverse was constantly down yesterday, hopefully it will improve as time goes on.
- Downloading is slow!!!!  I am just hoping its because of the flood of people coming into the service.
- My profile got moderated and restricted!!  LOL!!!!  I put my theincblog.com link on my profile and they contacted me saying its a violation... wuh!
- No TVii!!  I actually wanted to use it!
- MiiMaker is the same.  I wish they added more customization options.
- Doesn't work on controlling Receivers :(

Wii U Get!

Got the Wii U! Haven't tried too much yet though. But I can say one thing, prepare to see this a lot.


There's also quite a few things I'm hating...

- menu switching/loading takes what seems forever
- why can't I make folders!!!
- loading times in general seem slower
- my seagate USB drive didn't work :(

Will play around some more and update...

Wii U 2 days!

Can't believe I'll be playing it in 2 days!  I would be playing it midnight tomorrow but sadly my local Gamestop isn't doing a midnight launch.  Not even an early opening on Sunday.  Oh well.  Can't wait to play this... Too bad multiplayer is limited to local only... Guess I'll have to ask people to comer over.

Halo 4

Didn't get Black Ops 2 yet.  So for now, I am playing me some Halo 4.  What do I think?  Its a Halo game! Though I do like this episodic Spartan Ops thing.

Yay Back!

Hurricane Sandy hit and all sorts of chaos.  Gas stations with 3 mile long lines, people sitting and charging their phones in Targets, nothing open, the town fully dark at night.  Had no power for 10 days.  No Internet for 12 days.  Actually I shouldn't even have Internet now, but I found the problem outside the house and taped up the problem, until a tech comes Tuesday to replace the wire.  Looks like everything is getting back to normal, the gas stations aren't as crowded like a week ago.  I can finally catch up on tons of things.
