AHHHHH, this is annoying me. We keep seeing stupid un-boxings but nobody's posting any footage of the actual games, despite knowing they have a machine to play it on. Surely someone can post videos of ACIII, ZombiU, COD Black Ops 2 ect for the Wii U.

I understand embargos but normally they get broken regardless and I'm surprised nobody's done it yet. I'll assume there's no issue in actually playing the games if you have a machine so why is nobody putting up any footage.

Showing a video of you opening a box is pointless, it's just the same for every game pretty much. At least with a console un-boxing video it's kind of new, but game un-boxing, well we've seen a million of them already, show something useful, LIKE THE ACTUAL GAME FOOTAGE.

By the way, if it's down to press not wanting Nintendo catching them posting videos up early and breaking their stupid embargo, even more idiotic when the machine is 3 days from launching officially and you can buy the games already, then just send the footage to a friend and get them to post it up, problem solved.

What's confusing is every games journalist is complaining about lack of hype or information from Nintendo so close to launch, but they themselves are compounding the problem by supporting embargoes that do nothing for the hardcore gamer, especially this late in the game. I could kind of understand maybe several months ago, trying to keep things under wraps, but for the last couple of months we should have been seeing all this stuff already, not just the same re-hashed promo videos that we've seen online for almost a year now.

We've had 1 review so far for a port, NG3, that wasn't exactly a motivator for getting the machine compared to something like ZombiU or Black Ops 2. It's like journalists have forgotten the whole point in what they do, especially when it comes to games. We the public look to the games press to build up hype and get us drooling for new games and hardware but if your waiting till the machines already out, where I can go get it myself already, your kind of missing the boat a bit I feel.

I can understand the system unboxing. But a game unboxing? Come on. Give us some footage already.

Are we that desperate for news that we need to watch a video of a guy taking a disc out of a case?

Exactly.

All I'm really bothered about seeing at the moment, as I have the ZombiU bundle pre-ordered, is seeing some nice direct footage of ZombiU and other launch games to see how they stack up compared to the Xbox360 & PS3 versions. I'd also particularly like to see if in ZombiU, the amazing looking scenery is interactive or not. I haven't seen anyone trying to shoot out lights or knock things over. It might sound insignificant, but stuff like that makes it all the more immersive and it shows the extra quality/attention to detail a dev has gone to.

Again I understand embargoes, but surely someone out there could get it up on Youtube.
