I absolutely refuse to read something on a site that seems to do everything in its power to make sure I can't read their stuff. Seriously, I can't put my mouse anywhere without something popping up, even with Ad-block on. Can anybody give a quick summary?

The headings pretty much cover all there is to say in the article.

1. You can’t find games like this anywhere else. (Only points out 3 exclusives however)
2. The Wii U gamepad gets better and better. And makes more and more sense. (Assuming its used well in new games)
3. The price cut makes the Wii U a much better deal.
4. Nintendo is still the best system for families. (Not disputed, but hard to exactly convince any other markets)
5. Nintendo has a strong lineup of games just around the corner.

Basically, if you're looking for the most affordable, family orientated next gen console, it's the Wii U. If you like Nintendo games, get the Wii U. Otherwise, there isnt much else to convince you to get one.

The article basically went over what many of us have been arguing for a while. Games you can't get anywhere else, the GamePad, the price cut, the family-focus, and big upcoming games. It's all the talking points that should be told to the general public.

(Accessible and intuitive, but still challenging.)

2. The Wii U gamepad gets better and better. And makes more and more sense.
This part is pretty original:
"In fun mini-games in Nintendo Land, the second screen makes it possible to play hide-and-seek style asymmetric games where players see different things on the TV and the gamepad.

In Wind Waker HD and other titles, the gamepad serves as a great map and inventory management system. ZombiU took full advantage of this, making the simple act of rummaging through your pack a lot scarier. When it comes to any game that uses inventory or maps, the Wii U gamepad is just enormously convenient. What the system really needs is an ambitious roleplaying game that really focuses on inventory management and map-making.

The Wonderful 101 has some really clever puzzles that make use of both screens at once, and more and more games are utilizing the feature. The Wii U version of Rayman Legends built its entire concept of cooperative play around the gamepad, and it’s surprisingly intuitive and fun.

And cross-platform title Disney Infinity takes full advantage of the touch screen as well, making the game’s world-building features much quicker and more fluid."

Nothing you need to apalogize for, it's their stupid site.
