Adam "The Riveter" Rosenberg checked out Blops 2 on the Wii U and brought back a stirring Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for Wii U preview.
Most excitingly, the GamePad will be able to serve as a second screen for local multiplayer, which means no more split-screen play when it's you and a buddy on the couch. The controller's screen is a little on the small side but there don't appear to be any display-based sacrifices made beyond that, as I learned shortly after the press conference during a hands-on demonstration. The GamePad can also function like a satellite screen for the Wii U, so you can pick up your game from anywhere "in the house" without having to be in front of the TV.
