Wii U Game Pad is Nintendo's best controller, says Gearbox C

Postby sakaspuds » 04 Jun 2012, 12:17

any game with an 'in game' menu system/inventory is going to work better, no need to map a lot of different things to several buttons or 'quick load' style menus, they can be right there on the mini screen, the screen could be used in so many ways, like a scanner, a full map, a menu, inventory, night vision, thermal vision, mini map (rotating), hud, thats just visual things, then theres a whole heap of touch/swipe/mouse moves that can be done, all kinds of things really, its up to the devs to make good use of it, it can be used to keep the main gaming screen clean by putting all the info you only need to glance at on the mini screen, ammo count, life bar, mini map, important locations, info on the mission youre on so on...

^+1 it'l be pretty refreshing to play this, i noticed on the 3ds mainly that the top screen is pretty much free from any hud, obviously some things will be kept on it but i could imagine options to edit which screen hud items are, there certainly isn't a controller that does as much as this one does, its pretty good they didn't call it a tablet like i thought it was when i seen it last year, i feel though its gonna take some real imaginative devs to get this to full potential.

I dunno, if you were a Nintendo fan who liked more serious shooty games (the two don't really go together, but there must be some, surely?) then I think you'd be fully erect at this.
RIP CVG. Future can get stuffed.
