The Daily Hotness: Ups and downs of the Wii U

11:59 PM on 05.16.2013 // Darren Nakamura

Check out everything Destructoid did today

It must be taxing on the soul to be a Wii U fan. On the one hand, Wii U enthusiasts have Super Metroid for next to nothing, and so far they have voted the most when Jim asked which version of Resident Evil Revelations to review. On the other hand, juggernaut publisher EA is pulling support for the console entirely. I suppose that's still a net win.

Otherwise on Destructoid, the Podtoid crew released a new episode, Conrad and Jordan started a new Couch Campaign, Fraser reviewed some game with a hex grid, and so much more happened on this fine day.

To my surprise, I've more or less figured out Rodea Wii U controls. Still a different game from the Wii version, but not as decidedly inferior in my eyes. Did the legacy medals do anything in Wii version?

"Am I a kid, or a squid?" I ponder as I stare off into the horizon. A wise man once told me "Son, you can be whatever you want to be. You are only limited by your lack of ambition " And I want to be a squid. A squid now.

Gave Ronin one more chance before I chucked it in the "never to be finished" pile, glad I did. It could have been so much better but as a frustrating time waster it's not bad.

I'm sitting on the Fapcast's most recent recording. I just feel like I need a day for myself after, you know, freaking out about rent.

PSA: Just picked up Falco amiibo at Best Buy. They had about 20 Tom Nook, 10 singles of Splatoon Boy/Girl, the Splatoon triple pack, about 30 Marths with a big sign saying "Look Who's Back!," Dark Pit, and probably about 15 others. Not too shabby.

I long for the day that people get over their weird circle jerk hatred for FFXIII related things and just ignore things they don't care about.
