I haven't held a Wii U in more than a month. I hadn't even watched videos of myself playing it. But I just watched a bunch, as I tried to make sense of what Nintendo is trying to accomplish with its next big video game machine and as I endeavor to figure out just how much danger they're getting themselves into.
In the videos (like this one) I see myself holding what I now recall was a surprisingly light and comfortable game controller. The controller has a big screen in it, the most radical feature of the Wii U. I have fun in these videos, which helped me remember that the company of Super Mario Bros. and the original Wii usually knows how to deliver fun.
