Cheapy attends Tokyo Game Show 2012, everyone loves Borderlands 2, nobody loves the Wii U, and Wombat dislikes moving his finger twice.

For anyone watching the Football Phone commercial, be sure to look out for a young Christopher Walken at 0:11 in.

Yeah I second the fact that no one seems to hear wombat. Especially Shipwreck. Crazy.

Mouse and keyboard is definitely the way to go for first person shooters on the PC. And maybe some third person shooters, too.

@CheapyD

What do you mean there weren't many booth babes at this year's Tokyo Gaming Show? Based on the picture published in today's WSJ; you must've been in the wrong part of the show or missed the Gree booth entirely: Posted Image

When I'm not playing against other people and I'm playing a game that I'm also playing on 360, it just seems easier to play with a controller. The auto-lock seems even more pronounced on the PC version.

I don't own any Wii Motion Plus controllers or adapters but that makes no difference to me in terms of buying a Wii U. If I buy a Wii U I would buy it to play Wii U games with the the Wii U tablet controller.

The Wii, the PS3, the 360, the GC, the Xbox and PS2 also only came with one controller in the box. And PS2 controllers and Xbox controllers didn't work on the new platforms, so I had to purchase a second controller to play local multiplayer. That wasn't a big deal to me, either.

I don't think Google will be in a hurry to bail iOS 6 users out by releasing a proper Maps app, since it gives Android phones a big new selling point. But I won't be upgrading from iOS 5 on my 4S until they do, so I hope I'm wrong about that.

I don't think you understand how many Wii U games use Wiimotes. If you are playing a multiplayer game, Wiimotes are involved.

I understand that to play local multiplayer you need to get a second controller, just like with every other system for the past 12 years.

I don't understand why you guys think that is a big deal, or why Nintendo needs to pack in extra controllers when they didn't do that with the Wii or the GC.

All multiplayer games require a second controller and the only system that comes with two controllers is the $400 Super Elite Xbox 360. http://www.amazon.co...48255678&sr=1-5

Sony used to make a Move Bundle too, but I think they've sort of just given up on the Move.

The one really nice thing I like about the Wii U is that the old controllers are forwards compatible. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 I had to buy all new controllers, but at least with the Wii U I already have some secondary controllers that will work.

So now when kids get their new Wii U, their parents don't have to buy a bunch of new controllers. They get the GamePad that comes with it along with all of their old stuff that still works. I would have liked to see a second controller with the Wii U too, but it's really not necessary for single player games.

You play Borderlands 2 on PC with auto-aim on? Maybe that's why you don't appreciate the PC controls.

that's what I thought too. They all acted like the WiiU doesn't come with a controller at all. I am sure that the WiiU games you buy will work with the WiiU controller.

There will be uses for the Wii motion controller but it is just multiple players. So yeah, that point of "the Wii U really cost $50" is just dumb (sorry)

CheapyD you should probably wait until Tai can read at a 5th grade level or something before he should start playing video games more seriously. Besides a Young Justice game is coming out next year.

I honestly think the WiiU will be pretty great! I know here in Germany I wont get the use of all the features the USA will have.... But it has a great backlog from the wii of games that I have not yet played (never had a wii ;-)) plus unique titles such as ZombiU, pikmin, mario and future ones too which you don't get on other consoles.

I played m/kb without aim assist and then sswitched to controller with aim assist. I'm not competing in eSports here, I'm playing a game for my own enjoyment.
