    "Nintendo land game of the year"
    "The wii U doesn't need a capacitive screen because it is less accurate"
    "wii u has the best online service I have ever used"
    etc etc etc

    Sloshy confirmed fanboy, ignore any opinions he gives in this episode.

    Nintendo Land is one of the WiiU's most sold titles due to it's hardcore nature and 1080p graphics yo.

    The part about windows 8. I think I understand what iFish was going on about. If everything must go through the app store. Then what about people like me, who goes and make a random program upload the exe and paste the link for others to use. will we have to go though the app store? will it cost a fee to post the program to the store or a monthly/yearly fee to be able to do so? will we be forced to use a single compiler or language? will the programs have to be approved by Microsoft before it becomes public?

    these kinds of things will drive people away to other OSes.

    Yeah. This. Basically.

    I'm not really that great at articulating what I mean to say but I'm glad you got the message.

    I kinda feel bad for giving Sloshy so much grief when I haven't used a Wii U for a long enough period to comment on a lot of it. A lot of what i was talking on that subject was theoretical. Like the online stuff. Theoretically it'd bother the fuck out of me,
