The Wii U crashes a lot. When it does crash it freezes up and makes a noise that sounds like a nuclear war in your ear drums. Here are some instances of it doing this. 1 - Watching Doctor Who season 6 finale. Me: "What the hell is that?!" Dad: "Clearly not The Silence..." 2 - Watching the same episode Me: "How does it crash at the exact same point?" 3 - Selecting a stage in Brawl Me: "That's it... I'm getting the regular Wii."
