WRUP: Wii U, us and the previous 48 hours


Okay, a lot happened in terms of Wii U info over the past two days, thankfully we've got it all in one place for you: Joystiq's Wii U news roundup. If comprehensive and curated isn't your thing, jump on down the Wii U tag hole.

What's everyone playing?

  • Alexander Sliwinski (@Sliwinski): I want to say Guild Wars 2 and finishing Dust: An Elysian Tale. I really want to say that's going to happen, but I'll probably play some XCOM.
  • David Hinkle (@DaveHinkle): I'm reviewing Borderlands 2, so I'll be wrapping that up this weekend. After that, I plan on getting my tattoo in Mark of the Ninja and stuntin' through Joe Danger 2. They see me ridin' and all of that ...
  • JC Fletcher (@jcfletcher): I'm hoping that the Tokyo I'm sending Jordan and Richard to is nothing like the desolate Tokyo I'm exploring in Tokyo Jungle. If you see a pack of beagles, RUN.
  • Jess Conditt (@JessConditt): Borderlands, the original, in preparation for the sequel, which I am not playing right now because Dave is playing it and damn if that guy isn't so smug.
  • Jordan Mallory (@Jordan_Mallory): I'll be working all day Saturday (as per usual) and will then will spend about 18 hours traveling from Austin to Tokyo, about 14 hours of which will be on planes. I envision a hazy, exhausted blend of futile sleep attempts, VVVVVV on 3DS and Rifftrax on the lappy.
  • Ludwig Kietzmann (@LudwigK): I'll keep moving and shoot (often simultaneously!) through Resident Evil 6, and possibly find some time to try Asura's Wrath. Being an angry, volatile persona will be quite the bit of roleplaying for me. Asura also seems quite tall.
  • Mike Schramm (@MikeSchramm): I beat Puzzle Craft so I guess there's no point in continuing that. Darksiders 2 it is then.
  • Mike Suszek (@MikeSuszek): Kicking off my Madden 13 league this weekend, so I'm carefully combing through my playbook options.
  • Richard Mitchell (@TheRichardM): Apart from packing for TGS, I'm determined to get in some time with Mark of the Ninja.
  • Sinan Kubba (@Shoinan): This weekend I'll be journeying to Oxford (where the universities are), so I'll probably pick up that New Super Mario Bros. 2 I keep hearing about.
  • Steven Wong: I too will be playing Borderlands with friends to get ready for Borderlands 2.
  • Xav de Matos (@Xav): Now that I'm back in Los Angeles, I'll focus my attention on Guild Wars 2 ... which I really want to write about.
