I didn’t pre-order a Wii U. It didn’t feel like a system I needed to have on Day 1 so I decided to wait and see how things go. But the other day I was playing the Need For Speed: Most Wanted demo, and more than once as I was […]

I don’t generally promote my ITWorld ravings posts here, but this one was on-topic enough that it seemed worth it. So here’s a link to my Nintendo DSi review over there. I take a quick look at both the hardware improvements as well as the new OS. Hope you enjoy […]
