I think it lived up to a lot of it.
Some of the more novel uses shown in the video (ie. the golf and shuriken demos) don't seem to have panned out. But drawing on the screen, using the gyro controls for aiming, Wii U chat, surfing the internet, etc, are all things you can do with a Wii U.
However, it must be said that the most common use of the Gamepad is pretty much just off-TV play. It doesn't sound exciting, but I know for me (and seemingly most people), it is one of the Wii U's best features, and its absence is definitely felt in games that don't offer it.
Gotta wonder if the Switch is a deliberate evolution of it.
-Motion control Works, Wii Sports Club Baseball does what as shown.
-New views WSC Golf like above. Hard to say if any other game used a feature like this though. Maybe you could count the scanner in Zombi U and LEGO City Undercover?
-Stay fit Wii Fit U.
-Take aim with the new controller Wii Zapper with Gamepad attachment never happened. Though it would probably be possible to aim with it.
-Play across the controller and TV Shuriken demo became Takamaru's Ninja Castle minigame in Nintendo Land. Game & Wario has that archery minigame that does something similar (and a few more minigames like that).
-Video calling It happened, never used it though. I guess that's the problem of that feature only working across Wii U to Wii U's only.
-Browse with the controller. It works. But not fully like in the video. CANNOT turn gamepad 90 degrees to get a portrait view. (This is the only feature from the video I could even remember and was annoyed over it not happening after all these years).
-Share from the controller Er . . . Youtube on the internet browser? The curtain call (and drumroll when you hold down the button) feature was a pretty nice touch in the final product.
-More graphical detail Blah, blah HD . . .
Only a few minor nitpicks here and there. But it does seem to have done the job. The only thing though is were many of the ideas shown even that great? Some of them are pretty limited in their use (like the golf ground detail) and some of them feel like they are repeating the same point (like Off TV play/Stay fit/Play only on the controller segments). While some of the features feel like something you wouldn't base a full 30 hour game around but only for a minigame (like the shuriken demo).

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.

nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.

nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.

nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.

Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.

Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.

Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.

Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.

Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.

Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...

Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
