Gary Busey and Chewbacca make for amazing Miis

You ever see something that's so simple, yet so perfect? Like a Gordon Ramsey dish that uses just five ingredients, and only takes 30 minutes to make. Vinesauce is giving you just that with their Sh*tty Mii creation, whereby Vinny takes a picture of celebrities with the Wii U GamePad, and lets the Mii creator do the rest. It's as perfectly horrible as it sounds.

IT'S NOT A COOKIE!!! Wii U's Nintendo Network explained photo
IT'S NOT A COOKIE!!! Wii U's Nintendo Network explained
by Tony Ponce

Ooooh, you wascally wabbit! Always with those secwet Nintendo Diwects!

Nintendo of America translator Bill Trinen takes center stage to explain the console's online capabilities. You've likely heard most of this info previously, such as how the Wii U can store 12 separate User accounts or that you'll be using a Nintendo Network ID instead of an arbitrary Friend Code. We also have confirmation that eShop sales will be tracked by your account, so it seems that the days of sending a console directly to Nintendo to get back all the content you lost on a stolen or broken machine are behind us.

A couple of Japanese live-action skits demonstrate nifty features like browsing the Internet mid-game and posting onto Miiverse. Bill then wraps up the video with his response to Iwata's bold E3 declaration. And no, it's not a cookie.

After the break, catch another Nintendo Direct from last week that explains WaraWara Plaza and Wii U Chat.
