    Also, the 3DS zelda looked amazing. They were showing the game on a huge led above the demo units and you wouldn't complain if it was a full wii u release. Looked really nice.
    Shit I didn't even notice that!

    @beastmaster

    Now is a far better time to be buying a Wii U than when I got one in January.

    Hard months those were before Pikmin.

    I played it while I was waiting for you to finish chatting that nintendo genius guy up.

    I also played Shanae: something pirates something for a bit (which looks like a cool metroidvania game, fact fans). Thats how long you were streetpassing him.

    I spoke to two Nintendo guys. The first one had eaten something very garlicky at lunchtime...
    I can't remember why I then spoke to the big hair guy as well, but he wanted me to do some puzzle thing or something with the Street Pass characters that turned up - it was so exciting - my little Mii managed to unlock a Mario hat!

    You seemed so pleased with the hat as well Alastair :)

    - I got a Mario hat!

    - Oh cool, where is it?

    - It's a virtual one for my 3DS!

    - Oh, cool...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    While I was playing Bayonetta 2 the Nintendo guy asked me whether I owned a Wii U, he didn't do a very good job of hiding his surprise when I said yes.

    BAAANG!!!!! EXPLOTION!!!!!

    'So, do you own a Wii U?'

    'Oh, god no'

    As much as I hate the word, the 'visuals' were amazing. The demo level was you scrapping on the back of a fighter plane, with Jeanne buzzing around you in another, all the while chased by an enormous monster.

    No slowdown, 60fps...bells, whistles and is easily the best looking Wii U game.

    Oh, and it wasnt a demo, as far as I could see. It was basically the release version as the nintendo geniuses had to keep quitting to the main menu to select the second level after each go.

    So, yeah, if its the release version, back of the net, really.

    Excellent news really - will it sell? God knows. Splinter Cell Wii U bombed, truly and utterly apparently. W101 sold woefully. On the former, fair enough, on the latter, gobshites.

    The impressions I got from the expo thread were that people seemed fairly surprised by the smoothness and quality of the Nintendo titles along with a general sense of fun. Seems at least a few people were disappointed by some of the framerates and up close jagginess of some of the PS4 and Xbone offerings.

    Mario Kart is more of the same, in HD, with upside downiness. Probably enough for most folk.

    3D Mario is multiplayer focused and may disappoint those of us with no real friends (that's everyone in here then).

    Bayo 2 is BOMBA.

    Wind Waker HD looked and ran gorgeous by all accounts.

    DK played and looked very nicely.

    Have I missed anything?

    There is actually photographic evidence of me playing a Wii U.

    The directs are great as they happen regularly but are rarely interesting.  Mostly, thats because any new announcements havent been very interesting to begin with.
