Now that I have a Wii U again, this generation is almost complete for me (let’s face it though, my chances of buying a Vita are pretty slim). Found a Basic with Nintendo Land for a decent price, and went for it. Incidentally, it’s the same price I sold it for, two years ago. It must be karma.
I was curious to see if many of the issues which made me sell my console two years ago had been fixed. Turns out, yes and no. While things have been made faster, the overall experience is still somewhat unfriendly. The Gamepad, which at least looked like an impressive piece of technology in 2012, now looks ancient. The low resolution is a real problem with an otherwise beautiful game like Kirby and the Rainbow Curse.
Still, I’m already getting my money’s worth. I found a copy of Wind Waker HD in a clearance bin for a whole 3 euro. That doesn’t happen often with Nintendo games. Considering I was originally waiting for a Wind Waker HD bundle for a good price, this must be karma once again.
So once in a while you get what you wish for. My next investment will probably be one of those tiny USB sticks to increase the available storage: in the end, 3500MB just ain’t a lot. I don’t expect to buy a lot of digital games, but a 16GB expansion would fit nicely.
And besides, there’s always the chance of getting The Infernal Machine or Shadow Man on VC. Right?
