    What I think is most remarkable is that they put "scary" in the title as though it's some hidden feature of the Wii U that breaks the system when you just adjust it in your fucking settings.

    Perhaps a small oversight on Nintendo's side but not enough to warrant an article.

    With an obvious plug in the end for readers to "stay tuned".

    By the way, did I mention I have a Twitter?

    Glad to see that journalistic integrity is alive and well in the 21st century.

    I'd say it's more along the lines of Inane Gaming News, but whatever floats your boat.

    Well, only idiots take IGN seriously. Biased reviews are still biased.

    This is not a proper English sentence. The object implied is "option", it is mentioned earlier, however the sentence is constructed wrongly and does not reflect it. An "option" isn't "able to adjust" - the user is able to adjust the option. In other words, this should be phrased like this: "This (feature) can be adjusted within the system options (by the user)." An "option" doesn't exactly imply gradation - options can be turned on or off (opt in, opt out), settings on the other hand can be adjusted... but that's being picky.

    Engrish is hard.

    I'm sure they would rather if the console just overheats and dies.

    By the way, who the hell leaves a console running and unattended for over an hour (unless there's a download in progress, in which case, something is happening and it's not going into Sleep Mode)?

    It's funny that you consider articles on Kotaku "news".

    I take back what I said, you're actually pretty funny.
