Great review as usual man.
But I wonder why it is that so many Wii U games seem to have problems with load times. Not framerate drops or anything else, always just load times.
I did mention it in my review, but it's because the bandwidth of the disc drive or USB 2.0 isn't NEARLY as high as that of a SATA internal hard drive. The Wii U's disc drive, internal memory, and external HD via USB 2.0 all share bandwidth parity as Nintendo's way of making sure everyone has an equal experience across all forms of media, BUT... The caveat of this is the aforementioned lack of bandwidth compared to an internal HD like the PS3/PS4/XBox360/XBox1 use. Nintendo highly optimizes their code and loading/streaming behavior, which explains why core Nintendo games never experience major load times, and in the case of SM3DW, no load times at all.
