If you only have these two choices, which one will you choose ? to have a game with no story ? or to have a game with the most ridiculous, boring, cliché-filled and horrible story ever ?
Do games need to be epic ?... or fun ?...

Seeing the Wii U Pro controller during Nintendo Direct seriously made my jaw drop.

That Controller does look Great. Looks alot like the 360 controller. Which is a good thing because I love the feel of that controller.
