Wii U’s New Fangled Controller Gets a Little More New Fangled
Hmm, look at this number. There’s some slight shifting of buttons administered for the sake of comfort, but the best and most obvious improvement is the addition of analog sticks in favor of those bullshitty slider-nubs from the original design and currently tainting the 3DS. I still don’t see how fighting games can be pulled off with ease (sorry, touch screen controls can’t silence my concerns) but overall, I’m interested in seeing what this puppy can do, and whether or not if it’s as indestructible as Nintendo products of yore.
I’d cross the Wii U off as a necessity if the company had Reggie Fils-Aime take the stage at E3, start a doodle of Mario on the tablet, stop, back a pickup truck over it a few times (four is a safe number – seven if you’re going for the “wow”), pick up the unharmed controller, and finish his drawing, signing it “Whazzup bitches?”
I’m a simple man with simple wants.
