Ah, Saturday. The weekend gives us time to catch up with friends, spend time with family, and most importantly, relax with a great game. Pro tip: I hear that Halo 4 is pretty good. Just because it’s the weekend though, that doesn’t mean that the news has stopped pouring in. It’s time for today’s daily news:

  • VIDEO: With just 24 hours to go before the Wii U launches at the Nintendo World Store, Reggie decided to go visit some of the dedicated fans who were waiting in line. He has a bit of a chat with them, including one lady who asks if Nintendo’s next handheld can be region free, since she has Project X Zone, but can’t play it. Reggie is sorry about that.
