Firstly, Happy New Year (late, but better late than never)!
With the ending of the legendary year 2012 brings a new wave of video game consoles and games, most recently;
Nintendo Wii U
I was lucky enough to preorder and recieve a Premium Black package at launch, and I can say that I've definitely not been disappointed. It's a fantastic console with loads to offer, and is exactly what the Wii should have been- innovative, but not alienating. It has the right graphical power and handling capabilities which allow the same third party games and extras, whilst offering something new which hasn't been done before.
It takes inspiration from the original Game Boy, the connection to the Gameboy Advance and the Gamecube, and also the touch integration that the DS's offer. Couple that with an enhanced online system with built-in community forums which give the player the ability to share acheievements, post questions and answers, chat and even print screen their game images to show others, and you've got a pretty great console. You even have your own gamer profile viewabe, which uses your Mii character, something not done on the Wii successfully, as the Mii was only integrated with certain games, like Mario Kart.
If you'd like to add me, here's my Nintendo Network ID:

I've also recently obtained the Roxio Game Capture recording equipment, therefore I'm now able to post gameplay videos online from my Wii and Wii U. You can check my channel here:
See you around!
