      Sure, part of the appeal of the Wii U can be simply seeing classic Nintendo franchises in glorious HD. That's nothing to be embarrassed about. Mario Kart 8 is gorgeous.

      I can't wait to see the new Zelda at E3. Not just for the graphics, of course, but I can't deny wanting to find out what the first HD Zelda looks like, either.
