    Also from reading the Neogaf thread, major plus points so far:

    a) Using the Gamepad as a TV remote control is very impressive (you don't need to power on the Wii U to use the Gamepad as a TV remote)

    b) The browser is extremely fast

    c) Wii games look even better when played on the Wii U (not due any kind of extra processing, simply better video output via HDMI)

    d) Playing games on the Gamepad while the TV is showing a film/programme is useful

    e) The Gamepad is nice to hold and use (although the black one shows up dust and fingerprints/tiny scratches as is to be expected)

    Wonder how this compares to playing them on a Wii at 480p/60Hz via component? (probably the same).

    Jeff isn't impressed with the frame rate in Arkham City. Seems like the CPU Nintendo went with isn't up to the job.

    Can that do background downloads? I never knew that while I owned it, oh well.

    Interesting little FAQ about data transfer from Wii to Wii U, especially the very last bullet point on part 5.

    Probably been asked already, but will there be a Wii U category in the forums soon?

    Wonder if Gabe Newell would like that? TF2 on Wii U would be pretty cool.

    Whaaa?

    Seems that somebody has accidentally stumbled upon a debug menu that lets them moderate any comments left on the miiverse. Its early days but the thread is getting bigger and bigger. Hard to keep track. Oh dear.

    So any verdict yet on the Wii U's main functionality, luring young children into one's van?

    First post of that thread contains a summary, and I think the long and short of it is they've patched it.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    The game may be far from perfect and not stunning to look at but it looks way beyond a Wii game FFS.

    Wii graphics is probably just an exaggeration, the point being it's ugly. He still liked it though, in spite of its jaggies, so maybe don't dismiss it so quickly.

    I take it you'll be excluding the 8/10 score from the aggregation in your Nintendo Review Binder then, Armoured_Boar?

    That Destructoid sounds pretty balanced to be honest, I don't see the problem at all.

    Especially the graphics, this isn't the typically kiddie Nintendo game where bright colours and a cartoon art style will cover up any inadequacies in the graphics.

    But as always in threads like this, to find the average, you need to chop off the top positive people and the top negative people before you can even start to read it.

    Get bent.

    Why is it ridiculous? I thought review was quite fair, saying it was a good game that looked bad.

    Is it drivel because it was positive unlike some of the other reviews?

    Seriously though, I am rather interested in the graphics of the Wii U, after the Wii I was hoping for something more along the lines of the PS3 / 360. (Which is good enough for me, I think the likes of Uncharted and Halo 4 show we have reached a plateau that I don't want exceeded as more realism will just make shooting people in the head creepier, and I would rather see advances in frame rates and world size.)

    My only problem with the review is the hyperbolic, ridiculous comment that the graphics "wouldn't look too out of place on a Wii "

    I'd love someone to show me a game on the Wii that looks like this.
    It's the same level of internet tards with their "Looks like a N64 game LOL" at anything that isn't grey and shiny enough.

    As I said , I don't dismiss the review at all nor criticism of the visuals, just the ridiculous OTT comment.
