Wii U even in Los Angeles gives more reason to believe in Nintendo.

Wii U event in Los Angeles on Paul Gale Network

I’m a Nintendo fan, I’m looking forward to Wii U, and I think it’s going to be a console well worth owning throughout this next generation. But after tonight’s Wii U event in Los Angeles that ended nearly almost an hour ago, I can add even more ammunition to why Wii U is going to be the real deal this Fall…and beyond.

It’s true that all of the games I played tonight, I already tried out on the console at E3 in June, but it was interacting with a very different demographic than at E3, that gave me that much more confidence that this will be a system that heavily satisfies everyone. The hardcore showed up, the casuals, and those in between. Paul Gale Network spoke a good deal with many of the show’s guests and got a good feeling for the general excitement that Nintendo is bringing to the industry with their new system.

You might think you already know what side of the fence you’re on, but let me tell you, if that side is “definitely not getting a Wii U”, I’d at least suggest you give the console a try for yourself with a group of buddies and a variety of launch games, before giving it the final, cold shoulder. I say this because it truly does provide a different, legitimately “fun” experience all the while appearing to be a real gamer’s platform, with Nintendo working hard to establish strong third party connections and providing great content of their own.

If you “are” already planning on getting a Wii U, then just be that much more confident that you’ll be be satisfied when it comes out. Here’s to November 18th!

It blew my socks off when I tried it at E3, the “definitely not getting a Wii U” perspective surprises me to no end. when I talk to people with this point of view, it seems to me they have a tough time telling the difference between ‘for kids’ and ‘kid friendly’; hopefully Nintendo does a good job of conveying this difference.

Yeah, if Nintendo markets it well and makes sure that it has both “more clever” versions of the same third party games on other systems as well as exclusive content that appeals to the casual and hardcore market, Wii U is going to be just fine.

During the wii generation, all the wii had was mostly party games. I expect more different genres because Rayman legends and ZombiU. Is this true, or not? Can Nintendo actually do more than party games? Also, on the topic of wiiU I am planning to get it from what I have seen. I do know they are making Super Smash Bros Brawl 2. Do you have any info on this? If so hows the interaction with the gamepad and normal wii remotes? How do the WiiU and the 3DS interact?

I know that there’ll be a few parties involved in the creation of Super Smash Bros. 4 and that there’ll be a Wii U version and a 3DS version that come out. How will they interact is still unknown, but it’d be pretty cool is you could play the versions against each other, with each one being the same game but done in a different graphical style perhaps. Same hit detection, same character lineup, same moves…but a different “look”. We don’t know yet, but I think it’ll be a real blast when they come out. And I truly believe that Wii U in general is going to be Nintendo’s finest, most well balanced console, yet.
