  1. I know its no longer in production for nintendo, but my Wii U is not dead, it is used daily, if not playing Toads Treasure Quest or something else, we use it in the living room to stream Netflix,Hulu,Amazon, or yes even Youtube..:)

  2. The game pad was such a dumbass idea, I hate to say it because I bet there are things to like about it but overall I think nintendo needed to take a hit in the wallet for theor stupidness.

  3. love the Wii u so glad that the breath of the wild is only a port for the switch. it looks amazing on the Wii u and blows me away at what that system was capable of

  4. Rgt 85, love the channel. The intro/outro music is awesome! Think you will be doing a hidden gems for wii u? Please keep up the great work!!

  5. The graphics were actually there. the gpu was fairly respectable in 2012. the cpu was however ancient. It wasn’t much better than the wii.

  6. I been enjoying Zelda botw on Wii U (the reason I bought it in the first place four years ago ) . After that I’m hacking it.

  7. I never really see this reason talked about too much but my biggest gripe with the Wii U has been that a ton of indie developers never bothered to patch in pro controller support for their games. It’s pretty annoying considering that most of these low-profile titles appear on PS4 or the like, making a ‘traditional’ controller scheme seem to be a no brainer.

  8. Top 5 Wii U games:
    1. Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
    2. Mario Kart 8
    3. Splatoon
    4. Super Smash Bros. 4
    5. Bayonetta 2

  9. I prefer the Wii and the Wii U over the Nintendo Switch because the Wii and the Wii U are backwards-compatible witch GameCube, Wii and Wii U game discs, GameCube controllers (Original and wireless) and Wii and Wii U accessories. The Nintendo Switch sucks because it lacks backwards compatibility. If the late Satoru Iwata was still alive to this day, he would not be happy with the Nintendo Switch.
