Wii U First Impressions

I wanna try get back into this blogging malarky and what better way to come back than with a little look at my new toy; a Wii U!

I found this online just over a week ago for £250. That’s a good price as it is but what’s even better is that it’s the, now hard to find, ZombiU Premium Edition. Brand new too, so that’s always a bonus.
I had been looking about town a few weeks beforehand, trying to find the best place on the high street to just pop in on payday and pick one up.
I’m not one for in-store deals where you get to choose a free game….as long as it’s one of 2-4 games that they’ve specified. So I tried looking for just the console only and Grainger Games came in 1st place at £279 for the 32gb bundle (and a cracking £149 for the 8gb bundle if anyone’s wondering) and then there was HMV at £299. GAME weren’t too far behind at £319 (or something) with a choice of 1 of 4 games. You’d save a bit of money, but it just wasn’t for me.

UPDATE: Nintendo boxes!

I found a place in town that can print the Nintendo boxes 😀
Photoline can print them onto A3 350gsm Silk card for just 90p 🙂 I’ll need inserts for each box, which will probably be another 90p each. Still, it means I get replacement boxes for just £1.80 😀
Can’t wait ’til payday!

Going to update this list soon too as I’ve got a few more boxes to do now and I’m going to try do my mate’s list too. Might take a while since he’s got A TONNE of unboxed Nintendo games, haha.

REVIEW – The Legend Of Zelda DX: Link’s Awakening (Game Boy Color)

You know, I’ve never been a massive fan of the Zelda series ‘cos I always end up getting stuck and sick of trying over and over to progress, but I decided a few days ago to just sit and play this portable classic all the way through until it was done, even if it killed me.
Now even though this is for a handheld game, I couldn’t help but go all out with the experience and just play it on my TV through the Gamecube’s Game Boy Player attachment. Complete with the Wavebird controller as the current generation has gotten me quite attached to wireless controllers.
