They keep designing gimmicky controllers and then try to shoe-horn games into using them.
Actually, Disch, the Wii U Gamepad allows me to play Wii U games portably (albeit only from a room or two away). I'm able to play Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Super Mario 3D World from my bedroom, rather than having to go into the living room with the big flat screen television. It's almost like playing the game on a 3DS. It's not bad, frankly. I'd rather save the big flat screen television experience for if I have friends over playing the games with me.
compare modern rayman to New Super Mario Brothers
I dunno, New Super Mario Bros. is pretty fun. I'm actually thinking of buying some (if not all) of the DLC for New Super Mario Bros. 2 when I get the chance to buy an eShop points card. However, since you mentioned Rayman, I may well consider buying the 3DS Rayman game too.
If you are that lazy in game selection with needs such as that though then your monocle deserves to be shattered when it falls in shock.
It's not about laziness. I just prefer family-friendly stuff. I mean, I myself don't swear or anything like that, and I prefer family-friendliness because it is comforting and relaxing.
Just want to mention that LEGO Racers was awesome and since you're a Nintendo guy Tharthan, you may want to check this out on the N64 if you haven't already. I remember it being a little better than the PS1 version. It's fun (family friendly) game and you can build your own cars and racers. The more you win the more blocks you get to choose from and the power-ups are really cool. One even works kinda like a worm-hole that allows you to jump ahead on the track. Great stuff.
I'll look into it. Thanks!
