    I think Halo, AC, CoD etc. get criticised so much because they've had so many sequels, all very similar, in such a short space of time. Whereas in the last decade we've only had 6 Zeldas that I can think of, only three of which were big console releases. And arguably only two of them were "safe" sequels.

    Also, frankly, I don't understand why you're attempting to have a rational argument with higgins in the first place.
    I like the effect rationality has on the irrational.

    So IGN's review mentions there is no story or plot to Zombi U....yet the first couple of paragraphs on destructoid mention it......

    The graphics comments suggest that the game is still shit looking like it was at the nintendo preview events, and the vidoes Ive seen from reviews show that annoying split second freeze between the gun animation moving and firing when you shoot or attack with a weapon.

    with regards Shopto, they already said they dont know which preorders will be fulfilled and that the preorder guaranteed delivery thing only applies if they dispatch it to you and it doesnt arrive, if there is no stock then you dont get zilch. Hence why I cancelled with them as Amazon are at least seemingly on top of who is getting what, when.

    That's a trick question by the way - Halo: Combat Evolved is over 10 years old now :)

    About five, full-console releases? More than Zelda (not counting portable versions).

    Anyway, Halo is far from the worst offender.

    Oh well played sir. Do we count Halo Wars? It is an entirely different genre after all...

    Wow, when someone quoted "GameSpot 4.5" earlier I just naturally assumed 4.5/5 based on other reviews. But yeah, that is quite a varied bunch. The Marmite of the launch window xD

    The reviews of the Wii U itself - on the likes of Engadget, The Verge and Wired - are very ho-hum so far, especially with the lack of applications and software being unusable at this moment in time.

    The black Wii U looks like it has already won a prestige award for not only being easily scratchable, it's an outstanding finger-print magnet too ... this is the first thing you notice in just about any photos of the console and/or GamePad itself; very off putting indeed.

    I am feeling a little bit ho-hum myself, mainly because there really doesn't seem to be any real wow factor with the Wii U ... at least not right now whereas the original Wii (at launch) was genuinely quite special.

    Interesting times lay ahead, that's for sure!

    Not sure I'd trust Gamespot after their farcical Skyward Sword review. I don't think the guys there really have a clue what they're doing.

    One thing I'm curious about re; the finger print magnet thing, how often do people handle a console? My black Wii and PS3 get handled once every 2 to 3 months for a quick clean, that's about it.

    I've just ordered Sonic Racing to go along with Nintendo Land, NSMBU and Zombi U. If Eurogamer's reviews are right it should be a great launch day. Depending on funds i'm going to try and get some eshop games as well. Will we have the same titles at lauch as the US do now?

    Edge Magazine have scored both Zombie U and Hitman: Absolution 7's each.
    What does Hitman: Absolution have to do with anything?
