The Legend of Zelda Wii U Gameplay Footage

There’s no questioning the string of quality titles that have arrived on the Wii U as of late. With Super Smash Bros. still managing to keep fans at bay, as well as the brand new Splatoon on the horizon, consumers have had enough on the table to keep them dusting off their console.

Earthbound: For the First Time

Brasel The Gamer of Gaming Rebellion writes: “I finally played through Earthbound, and I was honestly surprised. Sure, Ive heard countless wonderful things about the game, but I had no idea it would live up to just about every one of those expectations.
