News - EA does not like the Wii U. Fanboy - good they are horrible anyway.

About as good as a normal Dual Analog controller.

In short, better with Wiimote.

Metroid Zero Mission and Super Metroid are some of the finest 2D games ever made and are the best in the series.
Metroid Fusion is pretty cool I guess.

I often wonder why, with the inclusion of the screen, does everybody think it's harder to play? It's not like your thumbs have to stretch farther than on any other controller. Then again I've been able to adapt to any controller in less than 5 minutes.

Not directed at anyone, just mildly ranting

It plays great actually, even with the Game Pad. But if you have an extra $50, pick up a Pro Controller.

Kicking ass on CoD like it's a gameboy feels really awesome. I was really skeptic at first too.

The one difficulty is hitting the shoulder buttons. Takes practice to get good with grenades and such again. Having the entire map on the control instead of the mini map is a huge plus though.

The GP works great for any FPS,I'm also a 360/PS3 owner and nothing about the Wii U took getting used to because it feels familiar enough.

The GP will be better for FPSes and other games with a HUD if it moves the info to the GP and gives us a nice,uncluttered and HUDless image on the tv.

The HUDless tv screen helped the immersion of Zombi U and it added to the realism.

The analogs have zero deadzone, set up the triggers to work like the 360 controller for the best results.

If you can learn the Wii Remote however, do it, the game's auto aim and lag compensation gives them a massive advantage. I watched someone spaz across the screen spraying a FAL and every shot hit me no matter where he fired.

I prefer WM+N over KB+M for FPS, but yeah for anything else KB+M is best.

Mostly just because I'm far better with WM+N than I am with KB+M when it comes to aiming.
