It’s been over one year since the Wii U debuted and… things could be a bit better? While not like the hyperbole doomsayers, the Wii U is in need of a boost, and four things come to mind immediately. Let’s look!
YouTube held it’s first ever music awards on November 3rd, which in all respects was a lackluster affair, though not for want of trying. Among the impromptu music videos and weird stand-up by the host, Video of the Year was one of the big prizes. People spent weeks voting for their favorites to win the category, between Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and numerous other artists.
The big winners? Korean supergroup Girl’s Generation with their song I Got a Boy. And it opened up a whole new can of worms that no one saw coming and yet surprised no one.
In the end, I won’t look back on this year having playing the majority of its heavy hitters. I’m leaving the country until August and my game exposure will be limited. It means no GTAV, no Beyond: Two Souls, no Assassin’s Creed 4, nothing. But there was one game I’m superbly pleased to have experience, and of course, it was the The Last of Us.

Nintendo isn’t the only one releasing a new model of their current handheld, Sony has announced that on October 10th, Japan will be receiving a new slimmer PS Vita model. Let’s dig inside the nuts and bolts of the new handheld.
This week on “The Retrospective,” we’re taking a short break from examining games to instead focus on our implements of play, console controllers. Looking back through history, we’ve had quite an array of novel plastic hunks fit snuggly into our grips. A good controller needs to maintain a high level of comfort, a solid range of functionality, and plenty of game type flexibility. Oftentimes the mark of a solid controller is one that you quickly forget you’re even holding, as its ergonomics and implementation allow for seamless transitions between our world and that of fantasy. Be sure to also check out Inverseman’s thoughts on the various controllers throughout gaming history.
Or should we really just call this Mega Man 11?
