Wii U: Why Nintendo’s Console Is Your Best Option

Now, it’s no secret that the Wii U hasn’t been the most successful of consoles since its launch. After some rather promising sales in the launch period, the Wii U became rather stagnant and has been climbing out of its own grave ever since. Now that the PS4 and Xbox One have been released, next-gen is truly upon us, but for all of its shortcomings, here are the reasons I believe that the Wii U is still the best option for those looking to jump in to the future of gaming.

What Telltale Games Are Doing Wrong

Since Telltale Games re-invented the point and click adventure with The Walking Dead, many have praised their unique ideas and since then, they’ve become rather busy. Currently developing Tales From The Borderlands, a new Game of Thrones game, as well as continuing to release new episodes for The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: Season 2, it’s fair to say that they have become a rather popular studio of late.

Now, as much as I loved The Walking Dead, a couple of things have frustrated me about the way Telltale make these wonderful games. I’d love to state for the sake of the article that I disliked their games, I don’t, in fact The Walking Dead made me care about it’s characters more than most games ever have, and because of this it’s one of my favourite games of last-gen, but maybe with these changes, Telltale could make a game I like even more.

Why You Should Give a Shit About Misogyny in Gaming

Now I can already tell from the title alone that people are simply going to rush straight to the comments and bitch. For those people, learn to bleeding read before you do that, seriously. Jeez. How do you function in the real world with impulse control that poor. How do you have time to comment on things on the internet when you should by all rights be lying half dead on your bathroom floor with a gullet full of shiny things you just had to touch.

4 Quotes That Prove Video Game Characters are Smarter than Politicians

Video games get a lot of flak for being a soft form of entertainment, for them providing very little in the way of educational content or even stuff that makes you think of anything more than “Hmmm, I wonder how many flashbangs I could throw at that terrorist before he literally collapsed of a mechanically induced seizure”. Characters from video games also get criticised for being impossibly unrealistic representations of the human form or for being huge dicks, so to combat that, here are 4 quotes that show that some video game characters are pretty damn smart.

Wesker!

Why Albert Wesker Should Stop Wearing Shades.

I freaking love Albert Wesker, he is, bar nothing, one of my favourite characters from any video game ever made. I have quotes from him committed to memory and I have the Umbrella logo tattooed on my own body, though the latter is mostly to fuck with people after I die. He can punch clear through a mans chest and can kung-fu his way out of a zombie holocaust. In short, he’s the man. Well he would be if he took off those damn glasses.
