- use GamePad screen as a character selector and camera controller
- tap on a character to jump to them
- tap on them twice to switch the camera focus to them

"So other than that, it pretty much plays like all the other versions. We did work really hard to ensure that visually everything you're seeing is identical to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions, so there's no downscaling, there's nothing going on that is not up to par with the other next-gen systems. There's nothing super wacky going on, but it's a completely full-featured version of the game." - Double Fine's Chris Remo

Seems like a pretty lame implementation of the GamePad but as always it's better for the game if they don't tack on half baked ideas.

Uhhh, the programmers had to "work hard" to make the Wii U version on par with the other HD consoles? No offense, but they must kinda suck then. And really, the 360 and PS3 are still considered "next-gen systems"? Seriously, as cool as The Cave looks gameplay-wise, I can't believe the surprising amount of stupidity by developers.

At least the GamePad functionality isn't tacked-on. I will give credit for that.

It all equals to no off TV play because we don't want Xbox/PS3 gamers to feel jealous. Off TV play is a "wacky" feature everyone...




I'm just kidding before everyone gets all up in arms.

Even 6, 7 years after release people are still calling the 360/ps3 next gen. :lol:

@Zug Zug It is rather amusing, especially considering the fact all console hardware is out of date by afew years by the time they hit market. :P

Shame no one's using the extra memory and power of the Wii U to use bigger assets yet, though. We all know they'll do so for the PS4 and X-Box 8 right off the bat...
