Let's be honest with ourselves — some of the loading times on the Wii U are far from ideal. Thankfully Nintendo is in the process of attempting to fix that. It's just released a new video showing exactly how much of a difference its forthcoming update with make to the Wii U's doddering load times.
But, as big an improvement as it is, all this video is really showing me is how crazily terrible the Wii U load times were before. Loading times — they're the silent killer. Most of the time I don't actually notice them, unless they're really long. This video does a great job of highlighting how bad the load times currently are. For some reason the fact they're being fixed is currently washing right over me!
Sorry Nintendo, but congrats on all the sweet software engineering!
