@  Holmboy : (21 August 2014 - 09:07 AM) Get Diablo III if you're going to drop $$$ on something. Great online Co-op and addictive gameplay.
@  cbaker96 : (21 August 2014 - 07:34 AM) Anyone getting Plants vs Zombies? I may just to have something to play!
@  Dbl Incertion : (20 August 2014 - 09:24 PM) Phil Spencer says blizzard is full of sh*t about "forcing 1080p" http://m.neogaf.com/...ad.php?t=879185
@  Andrew6679 : (20 August 2014 - 08:59 PM) I may have to cancel my Destiny pre-order :/ Life calls.
@  Chilli2627 : (20 August 2014 - 04:08 PM) Pick up Crysis 3 on PS3 while is free! (that rhymes too much!) Well worth a play!
@  dukebdfan980 : (20 August 2014 - 08:28 AM) Same here Baker
@  cbaker96 : (20 August 2014 - 07:13 AM) Is it 9/9/14 yet?  I miss playing!
@  twentyONE : (19 August 2014 - 09:36 AM) I feel that this "season" will rival Fall 2011 for best game release period EVER...or at least in recent memory.  More pumped for Madden (& FIFA) than anytime I can remember. Trying to finish a number of games before I am consumed by the ridiculous amount of awesomeness these next months hold, spilling over into 1st qtr of '15!
@  Holmboy : (19 August 2014 - 07:53 AM) Well, the "fall" video game season is officially upon us. Very excited for Diablo III today and Madden next week. If you have PlayStation Plus you really need to check out Fez and Dragon's Crown for free this month, especially for Vita.
@  Holmboy : (19 August 2014 - 06:23 AM) Keep up the great work DBM, our man of Destiny lol!
@  cbaker96 : (18 August 2014 - 08:21 AM) Way to go DBM!
@  dukebdfan980 : (17 August 2014 - 07:10 PM) Positive thoughts are appreciated, but I won't hear anything sometime in September
@  DBMgamer : (17 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) hey Jeremy have you heard how you did from your exam yet? (thinking positive thoughts)
@  dukebdfan980 : (17 August 2014 - 02:33 PM) Congrats DBM
@  DBMgamer : (16 August 2014 - 08:01 PM) wow, um ok, my video on the Cabal made it to the Front page of DestinyNews.net   The incredible part is the number of subscriptions I have has grown by 25%.... in one day?!?!
@  Andrew6679 : (14 August 2014 - 06:58 PM) Thats where i got mine DBL. They've literally had that on there for 4 months now haha.
@  Dbl Incertion : (14 August 2014 - 12:44 PM) anyone wanting a PS4 for $359? Today only here you go http://deals.ebay.co...468611165814153

@  Myelencephalous : (14 August 2014 - 09:10 AM) twentyONE, if you're really into WTF movies, try out Bad Taste, directed by Peter Jackson (he produced the Lord of the Rings trilogy).  It is by far one of the worst movies ever made, but you can't stop watching it.  You can find it on YouTube if you can't come across a physical copy.
@  Dbl Incertion : (14 August 2014 - 07:04 AM) Don't think I've been upset about loosing someone in hollywood until Robbin WIlliams. Still quite morose at his suicide. And hey guy likes games too so https://movies.yahoo...-233204827.html
@  TheBMT : (13 August 2014 - 10:57 PM) I still gotta watch both.  Sci Fi channel has had some crazy ones.  My friend and I ponder if itd be good money to just pitch ideas for new Sci Fi specials.
@  DBMgamer : (13 August 2014 - 08:05 PM) I think the first one is on netflix right now, People told me its so over the top that I had to watch it
@  twentyONE : (13 August 2014 - 07:12 PM) I'm actually watching Sharknado 2...I can't stop laughing, WTF is this? Too bad I missed the first one.  Might be the most random collection of actors/actresses I've seen in awhile. It's so terrible but I have to watch!
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 06:33 PM) Ps Dbm the videos now show up when I open it on my phone. /highfives
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 06:31 PM) I made a clan called spider monkeys I'll ally it with battlestrats when I get a chance.
@  TheRealJoshLem : (13 August 2014 - 05:15 PM) Jimmy, you're in! To clarify, this clan is on PlayStation. I am not sure if a similar clan has been created for XBox or if the same clan exists for both platforms.
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 04:47 PM) http://variety.com/2...aft-1201282195/
@  Dbl Incertion : (13 August 2014 - 03:08 PM) https://www.yahoo.co...-203502663.html
@  Myelencephalous : (13 August 2014 - 08:59 AM) Done, check your conversations icon
@  TheRealJoshLem : (13 August 2014 - 08:12 AM) If anyone on this site plans to buy Destiny when it hits shelves September 9, we have a Battlestrats clan on bungie.net; I do not see an option as administrator to invite a member to the clan, so anyone interested may need to apply in order to be accepted.
@  DBMgamer : (13 August 2014 - 12:39 AM) Ok Dbl see if you can see this one on Mobile
@  Chilli2627 : (12 August 2014 - 04:54 PM) If you have not played Bioshock Infinite, I highly recommend it, I put its story right up there with The Last of Us
@  DBMgamer : (12 August 2014 - 04:23 PM) @andrew I guess Microsoft want that Tomb Raider to be like Uncharted, as in not even showing up on the charts (stole that line).... But seriously its probably a timed exclusive and will arrive on PS4 with all the DLC's at some point I think
@  twentyONE : (12 August 2014 - 02:58 PM) FYI: The Golf Club launches the 19th on XONE & PC (later on PS4).  I sure hope its good....has some cool mechanics but just have to see how it plays.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 12:12 PM) Loving all of these trippy Indie Action/Adventure exclusives like The Tomorrow Children, RIME and WiLD. I thought the conference was great, lots of very interesting and fun looking games on the horizon.
@  twentyONE : (12 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) I still can't believe that the Destiny PvP game modes are just all Deathmatch basically with no objective based gameplay - with the exception of "Salvage"- which is just 3v3 attack/defend.  My biggest gripe with both Halo and Gears of War is that after a few months everybody only plays Team Deathmatch.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 10:55 AM) Sony Gamescom press conference starting in 5 minutes: http://www.twitch.tv/playstation
@  Andrew6679 : (12 August 2014 - 10:17 AM) I'm so pissed about the Tomb Raider Xbone exclusive deal.
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 09:28 AM) Live Draft is tenatively scheduled for Sunday, August 31st at 3pm EDT (21:00 CEST) so both US and European members have a chance to be there. Hope to see you this year!
@  Holmboy : (12 August 2014 - 09:14 AM) BattleStrats Fantasy Football is back for the 2015 NFL Season. We have 4 confirmed already and are looking to have a total of 10 teams, so let me know if you'll be returning or would like a spot! - http://bit.ly/1pMsRUV
@  Dbl Incertion : (12 August 2014 - 07:55 AM) Tomb raider to be xbox one exclusive http://m.bestbuy.com...d=1219094121829
@  Myelencephalous : (12 August 2014 - 07:42 AM) O Captain! My Captain!
@  twentyONE : (11 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) Dead Poets Society, Good Morning Vietnam...but my favorite is Good Will Hunting.  Man, I'm old enough to remember watching Mork & Mindy...Nanu Nanu.
@  Andrew6679 : (11 August 2014 - 09:48 PM) I will never forget Flubber. EVER.
@  Grumpy Joe : (11 August 2014 - 05:36 PM) Was never a fan of his standup but greatly admired his dramatic acting...
@  DBMgamer : (11 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) wow Robin Williams.... didn't see that one coming
@  Michrulejj : (11 August 2014 - 03:50 PM) Aight I'll look into that one.  I know there is a Gamestop over by Walmart but thats a little bit away
@  Myelencephalous : (11 August 2014 - 01:56 PM) jj there's one on monroe st; you'll be able to walk to it.  or ride a bike.

Why would I buy a Wii U?

Posted by THE RED DRAGON, 28 November 2012 · 2,970 views

Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Wii U review Wii U Review CPU comparison versus vs Next Gen Console
Why would I buy a Wii U? When the Wii U was first announced, I was actually pretty excited. Nintendo finally announced that they were ready to make the leap & embrace hardcore gaming / multiplayer / and 'Mature' games. During the roll-out, we didn't hear about gimmicky wands that people waved around. They showcased blockbuster titles using a new controller that looked like it could hold up in comparison to the Xbox & Playstation.

Not only did the games & console sound good, but the timing also seemed to align with the stars. The Xbox & Playstation are nearing the end of their lifecycles. This leaves the door wide open for Nintendo to blow the lid off the next generation. and deliver a solid console to consumers a full year ahead of the competition.

Fast forward to today - The Wii U has now been on the market for a little over a week and feedback is rolling in. Have they delivered a solid purchase?? Or have they shot themselves in the foot?

That might depend on who you ask.

Most of the reviews and gameplay videos that i've seen from users has been overall fairly positive. Players are loving the ability to see their favorite games in HD - the controller - apps - multiplayer etc.

But is this really Next Gen?

Let me explain it to you the problem in the video below...

Nintendo Wii U Bottleneck CPU Test: http://www.eurogamer...-wii-u-face-off

Metro Last Light & Battlefield 3 Dev sound off on Wii U CPU: http://www.computera...dev-criticisms/

Wii U Hacker publishes Wii U CPU & GPU Specs: http://www.computera...-and-gpu-specs/




The hacker said that the architectures between the Wii U's processor and the Xbox's processor are different and do not allow you to compare the clock speeds par-for-par.

All that really means is that the Wii U's CPU is to some degree better than it looks at face value - beyond that, who knows (apparently besides the critical developers working with the thing)?

I just would not see myself owning a Wii U for, essentially, just the next Super Smash Bros. game. It's a party game that I have nobody to play with in person, no other first-party titles interest me, my 2.5-year-old PC makes a joke of the machine, and I suspect it will still blow the next Xbox and Playstation out of the water despite being two PC hardware generations old.

The screen controller is little more than a gimmick - and in my humble opinion, a much less interesting one (despite being more functional) than the Wii's magic wand. At that, it has a very (very) poor battery life that can be measured in hours instead of weeks.

In a word to answer your question (is it a new generation?): no. If current consoles are holding games' potential back (which they are and have been for a long time), the Wii U is no savior. Not even a little bit.

1) If next gen hinders your enjoyment quit gaming

2) The wii u is next gen

- Its the next line in the nintendo brand
- Its more powerful than the last nintendo system ( not really important but you get the idea)


The wii u will be the number 1 system of this current gen which includes the 3ds and vita.


The funny thing is when the ds was selling 150 million units, nobody cared what its specs were.

What a dumbass blog

Your definition of Next Gen is completely different from mine.

Xbox 360 launched several years ago for $299 & $399 for Premium....IT WAS NEXT GEN at the time of its release.

I know for a fact that laying down $400 for a Nintendo isn't going to give me the long term investment the Xbox did. If it was priced at $150 -$200 - then it would be better. But they slapped a Next Gen price on a system that will be outdated in 2 years and on the way out.

When the Ds was selling 150 million units having a handheld that was color, folding and included a touchscreen that fit in a pocket was amazing to people, handhelds werent considered "mainstream" and there was nowhere near as much coverage of gaming and the lifestyle then, thats why noone cared.

Consoles are now no longer just gaming systems, they are now entetainment hubs in your living room. Movies? Check. Games? Check. Internet browser? Check. The Wii U is the next generation of nintendo consoles but it is NOT a next gen system. It does nothing that other consoles dont or cant or exceed performance of the other consoles by a large enough degree, THAT is the definition of next gen in relation to gaming.

With gamers demanding photorealistic graphics, lifelike physics and huge multiplayer counts, knowing what the specs of a system are helps the knowledgeable to have a rough idea of what the system is capable of. THATS whay people care now. If Microsoft or Sony tries to claim 128 player battles in a lifelike environment featuring destruction, real-time bullet mapping at 60 frames per second on a .5 Ghz single core processor with 256k of RAM and onboard graphics I can be pretty sure that that is a bunch of marketing hype.

People want to get the most out their investment in entertainment so "future proofing" is important. I have played multiple games on the Wii U and the Nintendo games are a lot of fun and well done. The games I have already played on my Xbox, i.e. Batman, Mass Effect and AC, well the Wii U doesnt really do anything better for me, the tablet stuff is neat but not game changing and I dont feel like I missed out by playing on my 5 year old system as opposed to the one that came out a few weeks ago.

As a courtesy point, when referring to someone elses opinion or statements as "dumbass" without presenting a cogent and logical argument you dont do anything for yourself other than mark yourself as just another rabid fanboy.

Sorry for Hijacking your blog Red, wanted to throw in my two cents and it turned into a dimes worth.

Hmm this may be steering slightly off the path of this whole conversation, but I feel like Microsoft and Sony are, in a way, already turning their current consoles into "next-gen" machines. Myself and many people tend to think of a next-gen machine as a new box of hardware, but with the XBox and PS3 I'm starting to see something different and quite promising.

For example, look at Microsoft's new SmartGlass application. They're not making any new hardware, just software. By using our already loved and useful IOS, Android, Windows, and Mac devices, they've given XBox users a whole new dimension to gaming, movies, ect. Just my personal opinion here, but it seems to me like Microsoft has really beaten Nintendo at its own game here with tablet controllers/accessories.

On the other end of this there's Sony, which acquired an interesting little company a few months ago. Gaikai is an online video game streaming service, one that's really growing and becoming quite something. With this technology absorbed, Sony could really have something useful here; video game streaming for the PS3 platform. Of course it wouldn't be fast enough for online gaming like in BF3, but for a singleplayer title like Red Dead: Redemption, it could run some games quickly on a rather under powered or outdated device with possibly some nice results.

Though some new hardware from Microsoft and Sony will be nice, I think technologies like these can really boost potential and expand lifecycles. Just a little though, feel free to add your ideas.
