^ that makes 2 of us.  Health concerns be damned.

Come on guys, you gotta assume I will be as well since I posted it :P

That makes three.

If the NX is backwards compatible, then I may sell my Wii U as well. It will be the only console (home or handheld) that I've ever parted with if that happens.

EDIT: If the NX is not backwards compatible, and it doesn't have a plethora of awesome software options, then I think it is very likely the Wii U will be my last Nintendo home console. I've stuck with them through all their questionable business decisions, but I can't afford to stick with them any longer if they continue in this trajectory.

Given the most recent console Zelda titles and what's been shown thus far, the more time they have to work on this, the better.

Hopefully, the NX announcement doesn't mean that the dev team will now have to drop what they were originally going for to shoehorn in the NX's new controller mechanics into Zelda Wii U/NX (like they did with Twilight Princess).

This is my major concern as well. Who knows what they're going for with NX, but I'm honestly unsure as to whether or not they'd do the Wii U Game Pad screen again given the Wii U's failure.

The Hi-C Ecto Cooler is coming back! Man, I loved those things when I was a kid.

EDIT: Wrong topic! Sorry gang!

I really only turn it on for cutscenes. I haven't found it to be useful at all. I think the added expense of the 3D and consumers' not caring is what gave the 3DS such a slow start when it first released. I know I wasn't interested until FE: Awakening came out.

I predict that the show has maybe one or two more seasons left to it and its going to end with Castle's death as a mirror to Derek Storm's death at the beginning of the series.

That would SUCK

Word on the street is that
Code:
Stana Katic is leaving the show after this season. It would make sense given the character development episodes what's-her-face has been receiving lately, but the circumstances are still up in the air AFAIK.

I may not have been too far off the mark on this after all.

Yes, I heard that, and no, the show will not survive that departure.
Code:
I will always watch just about anything with Nathan Fillion in it, though, so I'll be on board until the end.

I gave up early in season seven. Season six was sub par after several excellent seasons, but it really tanked for me in season seven. Well, technically the last few minutes of season six's finale ruined it for me. I really hope that Stana Katic's departure ends the show this season so it can at least have a chance to go out with some dignity.

I finished up chapter 25 in Conquest and moved on to chapter 26. Didn't have much trouble at all in 25, but 26 is giving me grief. Mostly because opening the doors releases a flood of enemies and my units just can't handle them all. I've tried going all offensive, but I'm not able to kill all the enemies in one go and by the time I'm finished someone usually has lost enough HP to be killed easier on the enemy turn. I split my team in two as I've done with most of the other maps, but I may do some pair-ups and send the whole army up the side with the Sorcerors, and then send a team down to clean up the Faceless and Golems on the other side.

Zelda U is delayed again. Confirmed to be coming to NX and Wii U. NX release date will be in March 2017. Zelda U will be playable at this year's E3.

Definitely not unexpected, but still disappointing to say the least.

So I've actually been plugging away very slowly at Wheel of Time 13. I only read it during down time at work since I'm using my commute to play FE Fates: Conquest. I just made it to chapter 21.

So far, again, Sanderson's writing style is all about the build up, but it just isn't working for me yet. Maybe when I get to Memory of Light and everything comes together it will. Otherwise though I'm finding this one just as plodding as the last. I will give him credit though for bringing a lot more maturity to the characters. They've been needing to grow up for a LONG time. Glad to see that is finally happening for all of them. Though it does kind of amuse me that most of the main characters are currently around twenty years old and the whole series has taken place over the course of two years. Feels like it should have been a lot longer and they should be much older.

Just wrapped up chapter 24 of Conquest. This map gave me a bit of trouble until I figured out how to use the Dragon Veins effectively, but was otherwise a pretty fun map. It took a few tries, and there was one close call with Effie facing down several of the enemy mages. I was also super annoyed by the Hexing Rod one of the enemies had. Granted, I was able to just pair up the affected units with others, but it hit all three times, which I find irritating for a staff with a hit rate of 50.

Anyway, I just need to seize the tile where Hinoka was and that map is finished.

Chalk me up for the Gamecube controller. My hands would be just fine after hours and hours and would typically outlast my butt, which would get sore by then. I even had a good chair. I'd give props to the Wii U Pro Controller too, but I rarely actually use it, so...

As for others, I have always liked the Dualshock controllers. Not sure about X360, but I did think the original XBox controllers were too large. SNES, while classic, never held up well for my Super Metroid-filled Saturday mornings. I eventually changed the button configuration and that helped a bit, but it still left my hands cramped.

I didn't get much time to play Conquest over the weekend. But I had an extra long commute today and that helped me motor through chapter 22. I'm now about midway through chapter 23. Just starting my units up the walls.

I have to admit I'm finding the game much more tolerable now that my units are promoted. I have greater flexibility in who attacks what, and with my overall strategy. The earlier chapters made this game feel like an SRPG on rails, which just isn't fun.

No insane RNG-ness. Knock on wood.
