This week, Xav finally got his hands on a Wii U. Joined by JC, and Richard, the crew hits PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, and then it's on to more Wii U thoughts and impressions. New Super Mario Bros. U gets some love, and ZombiU's roguelike nature almost gets the best of Xav.
In news, Alexander, Jordan, Mike Suszek, and Sinan, cover the big stories, but not before a little bit of Sheryl Crow appreciation, which will henceforth be known as "The Sheryl Crow Appreciation Minute." On tap: The Wii Mini heads to Canada, first details of Bungie's new Destiny project get a surprise early reveal, sales data abounds, and more.
Also, be sure to jump past the break to check out this week's giveaway.
