gentlemen, boys and girls, extra-terrestrials, robotic life forms and
everything in between. The year is 2015 and it's time to get underway. Last
year I was slack and focused on work, university studies and the plethora of
other personal issues I went through. This year is different. This year, will
change. Or will it?
Firstly, I'd like to address the last blog post I did in relation to the Wii U and I'd like to say one small thing:
"Suck shit! I was right! The doubt should not have been real!"
Ahem, excuse me. Needed to get that off my chest. In the meantime, yes, the Wii U did amazingly well for what most people thought of as a lacklustre console in the current generation race. Mario Kart 8 boosted sales by up to 400% in May, the month of its release. Bayonetta 2 was released and was bundled with the first Bayonetta game, which was really cool. Two games for the price of one is great, but when it's Bayonetta it's awesome! Hyrule Warriors was released and many people jumped on the limited edition bundle with the nice looking scarf. I managed to get my hands on one as well and I have to tell you, it's pretty comfy and warm. As for the game, it's very Dynasty Warriors but it doesn't just have a Legend of Zelda skin. It can be its own game in its own right. Now Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U! Oh dear lord! That thing is selling consoles by the truckload and it'll be interesting to see what the numbers are when we find out in a month or so.
Super Smash Bros., along with the aforementioned, have pushed the Wii U from a distant third to a must own second in the console race. While most people will be choosing between an Xbox One and a Playstation 4, the Wii U has a strong case to make as a secondary choice due to its differing selection in games. Hopefully it can still release some high quality games this year. Some titles would most likely be Splatoon and Yoshi's Woolly World.
Anyway, I'm going to
end this one premature. However, I will find time to write more often. If you
