Here in the UK today is the first birthday of Nintendo’s Wii U. Apparently not many people have bought the console, and I’ve heard this said like it’s a reason why not to own one. Personally, I’m glad that it hasn’t sold well, all the best consoles didn’t. I’d like to think that one day the Wii U will be remembered alongside the Dreamcast, GameCube and SEGA Saturn as one of the best videogame consoles ever made, so today let’s celebrate its first year of turmoil together.
Back in 2011, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was an impressive game with plenty of ambition. It mixed together elements from several different genres, and gave the player the ability to complete each level in a number of different ways. It mostly worked, but on reflection the game is also remembered for a few of its flaws. The Director’s Cut, originally a Wii U exclusive that ended up multi-platform, fixes the game’s most noted problems, adds all of the DLC content, and refines some of the mechanics. The result is a finely tuned version of a modern classic.
I’m usually not a sucker for these ‘Limited Edition’ boxes, but who can resist when it comes to The Legend of Zelda? I was such a huge fan of Wind Waker on GameCube that I really had no choice other than to get the premium version of the remake. So exactly is inside this exciting looking box? Read on to find out.
