Wii U Drops...Will anyone care? Gaming Thread!

Afternoon Morons and Ettes! Zakn back this week at the helm. Big thanks to The Dude for filling in. He'll be doing more of that in the future. So big ups.

On the Gaming front, I think the big Story of the week is the release of Nintendo's follow up to the Wii, the Wii U. The question I have for Moronland is if you bought a Wii, is this new system even on your Radar?

More Below the fold.

So Giant Bomb posted their Quick look of Super Mario Brothers U. Link Here. I would embed it, but their embed code blows the margins. I'm already a pro at doing that myself, I don't need their help. The game looks interesting and typically a little goofy, but I'm not running out to buy a new system. I didn't buy the original Wii either. They have a bunch of other videos up from the Wii U, so check them out if you are in the market for a new system.

JavaJoe Shot me This link about WarGaming at the Command and General Staff College. Pretty interesting stuff.

As for me and my Gaming. I really have been slacking. I am almost done with Episode 4 of The Walking Dead (I know, slacking) and really need to finish that up as the Final Episode drops next week. Really enjoyed the game. If you haven't picked it up, keep an eye out for it to go on sale Holiday time, or on Steam's Black Friday sale. They want my money, all of it.

On the Eve front, something pretty cool is going on right now. The New Eden Open is going on as this posts. They are doing the losers brackets fights today, and the replays are on their Own3d Page. Pretty cool to see them try to make an E-Sport out of Eve. It really doesn't cater to it specifically, but been pretty cool to watch. It will probably be live from Noon-3pmish Central time, but like I said, they do a pretty good job getting the replays up. If you don't know crap about the game, it's ok! They have been doing a really good job explaining what is going on in the matches.

Other than that, It's musical chairs in the North (Full Disclosure, Kesper is my Alliance Leader). The War is mostly over, just some mop up ops going on to get the rest done-done. People are moving to new space, others are moving to where they lived, etc etc. Moving can be a real pain, but this has actually ran fairly smoothly. Props to the hard work by Diplos all around. Personally, I am ecstatic about the move. Branch is in the middle of no-where, and while I do appreciate what it did for the Alliance (Cash Money!), I am really happy to be back on the Front Lines.

Down in the South Test and their Friends are doing things. I don't know what they are totally up to, but those Nerds are tearing up something down there, that's for sure.

See New Eden Sov Map for North and South references.

If you play, or start playing Eve, be sure and join the moron chat channel. It's AoSHQ

If you have something you'd like to write get posted in the gaming thread, or a link you'd like posted on the gaming thread shoot me an email. AoSHQGaming at gmail dot com. Or you can hit me up on Twitter

That's All I have this week. Have a Safe and Fun Thanksgiving Holiday!
