Recently, I haven't been feeling my best... A lot of things are swirling around my head...
Firstly, my Great Grandmother has been unfortunately very ill for the past two years and a couple of weeks ago she had two strokes within minutes of each other and now she doesn't look healthy nor does she really remember who I am... My Great Grandmother was a huge part of my childhood, she looked after me whenever my Mum or Nan were too busy with work. I have lost a lot of people in a short space of time so I kind of got used to the concept of death. I would obviously still get upset but it eventually became a yearly cycle and I used to seal up everything and remain strong for my family whilst my emotions ate me up inside. It wasn't til earlier this year, I had a breakdown and finally I tried seeking help but I failed and slowly fell back into my old ways... And now everything is flowing forth again and I feel like I am about to explode but I need to keep it together as I can't let my life be affected by my past mistakes.

I am sorry those who actually read this blog but I just needed to vent somewhere and I didn't want to do it on Facebook as that has enough whiners >_____>

News related to the blog! I am working on making an appealing layout and such.
I want to have this blog having weekly updates and when I get my microphone, I will start doing video reviews and maybe a Sequelitis-esque filler pieces when there isn't any games or films worth reviewing.

Nintendo Pre E3 Presentation 2012 - Wii U

Satoru Iwata presented us with new information and new features of the Wii U since we saw it last, at last years E3.

Some of the new things that were shown to us was; the new design of the Wii U Gamepad which gained its name from the controller of the Famicom or in Western countries as the Nintendo Entertainment System.

We were also shown the controller that would used for multi-platform gaming which looks oddly similar to the Xbox 360 controller.

The Wii U is showing so much potential with the unique, Wii U Gamepad so much can be achieved such as; a universal TV remote, a drawing tablet, a handheld console and many other features.

Nintendo has also revealed Miiverse which is a condensed word of Mii Universe. Miiverse allows anyone with Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Internet mobile device or any future Nintendo product to interact with each other, whether they are; helping each other on a game, socialising by message or via video chat.

The Nintendo Wii U is looking to be a promising games console and hopefully more will be shown such as; a release date, software launch titles and other hardware capabilities at the Nintendo E3 press conference on Tuesday 5th June 2012.

If you didn't catch the presentation, here it is!
