YouTube Spotlight: Why You Should Buy a Wii U in 2014


I don’t always agree with online gaming site GameSpot, particularly concerning their decision to award The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword a 7/10 score, but there’s always something to disagree with, and often something to agree with when it comes to any online publication. Today’s YouTube Spotlight video may seem optimistic based on its title, but while praising Nintendo for having many top-tier first party titles (already out and on the way), it is also unforgiving to the Wii U in a lot of ways. For example, it’s quite harsh on the clunky GamePad, which doesn’t hold a sufficient charge, and the poorly ported Xbox 360 and PS3 games that have hit the system.

I have my disappointments in the Wii U, but I think Nintendo can turn its situation around. Unfortunately, the way things are going, I believe the company is still not headed in the right direction to make that happen, but I have a shred of hope.

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth
