GameTrailers has a montage of some of the WiiU’s games. Rather than get into it with the Sons of Shigeru again, I thought I’d try to focus purely on the positive. There are two WiiU exclusive games that I think look great; one is The Wonderful 101, which looks like a blast, and the other is Bayonetta 2, which isn’t featured in this compilation but I know I’d love to play. And the WiiU has many third party games that I’ve either purchased for my Xbox 360 or intend on purchasing for my Xbox 360, like Batman: Arkham City and Assassin’s Creed III, so that’s good, right? Admittedly I don’t have the faintest clue how the WiiU controller would/will enhance the game experience, but that’s probably because I’m a sad, bitter old man who sits in the dark and blames the GameCube for killing my dad or something,
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
