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.

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.

PREVIEW – Sonic The Hedgehog 4 (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, iOS)

The original Sonic games were by far the best as they set the standard and kept on delivering until it got to Sonic 3D. Sega tried to give us sonic in the form of an isometric view and it just didn’t work in my opinion. For me, Sonic was never the same again.
