Episode 010 – Wii U, Ouya. Ouya, Wii U.

This episode of the Delta Attack Podcast kicks off the new year by completely ignoring the new year.  If you want to listen to some gamers talk about New Year’s Resolutions, you’ve come to the wrong place. Also, we’re fine the way we are. I’m not a diaper, so stop trying to change me!

Today’s podcast features a discussion about the Wii U, the upcoming Android-based OUYA console, and why 2D games are superior to 3D when it comes to some genres. Two steps forward, one step retro. Also, a couple of dirty gaming secrets, some curse words, and an inability to stay on topic round out the show.

Overture, curtain, lights.
This is it, the night of nights!
No more rehearsing or nursing our part.
We know every part by heart!

Overture, curtain, lights.
This is it, we’ll hit the heights!
And, oh, what heights we’ll hit.
On with the show, this is it!

This is the Delta Attack Podcast.

    In the podcast, I had mentioned that the Wii U doesn’t have access to the original Wii Store. I was wrong about that – turns out you can boot the system up in Wii mode and get access to all the WiiWare and virtual console stuff you want. I was surprised to see Commodore 64 shit in there. It’s a scant selection, but hey. Boulderdash is still Boulderdash.

      I thought you meant compatibility, though. It’s cumbersome to load in Wii mode when all that should have transitioned.

      Also, Nintendo needs to update the classic games to be compatible with the Wii-U Pro Controller. I’d hate to be the person who buys a game and then finds out they need to buy a Wii Remote and Classic Controller when they have a Pro Controller or GamePad just lying around.
