There's a lot more that could be done with the Gamepad, but they're doing some stuff, and that they're not forcing the use of its features when not necessarily effective for the game is something to be appreciated.

I saw a video about this once. People claim they want innovation, but games that try new things sell much less than yearly games like Call of Duty. Honestly, Nintendo shouldn't force anything onto the gamped just because. It needs to follow the DS line where the "gimmick" has plenty of uses, but most are there for convience and not really shoehorned in badly.

It demands I swap my view between both screens, when I really shouldn't take my focus off of the main (tv) screen (Mario Kart 8)
That's a demand I'm not wont to give in to. Too busy looking at the main screen mayhem.

Surely he must mean the Gamepad.


Even still, it's not a tablet and shouldn't be referred to as such.

Nintendo did not fail at using the tablet, since the Wii U don't come with a tablet.

Which does not make it a tablet.

A tablet is a device that has an OS, the Wii U gamepad does not have it's own OS on it.
