With E3 kicking off, I was hopeful that good news might be on the horizon. Unfortunately the games I’m really looking forward to aren’t due out until 2014. No wonder they didn’t feel sheepish of a “release window” that spanned 5 months.
Even though there are some games slated for 2013, they’re just not that exciting. It’s a mix of ported games from other systems, a remake of the Zelda released for GameCube in 2002, and a Mario game that’s a throwback to 1996’s Mario64 (which I suppose is a step ahead of Super Mario Bros. U, a throwback to 1990’s Super Mario World and 1998’s Mario 3).
My WiiU has been moved to the basement…which means that it’s on a generation-old TV and is rarely used. Sigh. It’s tough to face the reality of how underwhelming the new console has been.
