I got my Wii U yesterday, the premium pack and Darksiders 2. Really happy I actually got it on release day, because I had it delivered and the postal service here isn't always that great. But it came and I was home, so no having to go pick it up from the post office. Played a bit of Nintendoland because why not, and... it's not bad but probably more fun as a party thing. Or even a drunk gaming then. Might have to try that on my weekend.

For the most part I'm really liking the Wii U, although the Gamepad is maybe a little awkward for me. Which is partly because I don't actually play on consoles enough, so holding a controller at all is a thing, but the grips seem designed for larger hands than mine. Awesome for people with larger hands I guess, and all I need to do is rest it on my knees or something, which I tend to do anyway because my gaming chair is a giant beanbag. I'll have to play it enough to either get used to it or figure out what doesn't work so I can give feedback or something I guess. So it'll work out one way or another.

Got into Darksiders 2 as soon as I'd figured the controls out enough. Easy setting again for comparison. Controls are obviously different (gee really?) but nicely set up, and the graphics are good. (Although new tv and not much gaming on it, so I don't have much of a comparison basis, and I... don't really see graphics quality as much anyway.) One of the things I've noticed - and I'll have to check at some point because I could just be unobservant/misremembering - is that there's some sidequests in the Wii U version that aren't on the PC version. Well, one at least, Karn asking me to find him a plate he made. I'm sure I didn't get that on the PC, unless I lost the option for the quest somehow. It doesn't really matter, it's just interesting. Plus it means playing both versions wouldn't be exactly the same and hopefully more interesting.

The other thing I've been playing (far too much of) is Terraria. Mostly thanks to TotalBiscuit and JesseCox (of YouTube fame) but also because it's just plain fun. Got a friend playing it too, and the multiplayer world seems to have more in it. Although... that could just be because I'm exploring more in multiplayer than I dare to in solo. We'll see how it goes.

But now I have to get ready for work. More Darksiders 2 tonight maybe, we'll see.
