I went onto ac3 after setting everything up and i had to make another account for u play. i thought the wii u used Nintendo network, so what the heck is u play?

U play is Ubisofts online thing. I'm still not 100% sure on the details but it has been around a while. At the very least I know with U play you get points for doing stuff in game which you can use to unlock things in the game.

u play is it's own thing from ubisoft, I don't know why they're making you do this now to play online but it has nothing to do with the Wii U.

My Miiverse page got banned by Nintendo. I used the message that you can see on my NG page, I'm guessing I broke their no sexuality protocol. Still, anyone with a brain could tell I was being sarcastic.

The funny thing is that I immediatly changed my post after two minutes. No one could have actually seen it.

I contacted Nintendo to have my page un censored.

Just picked up a Wii U as hell just for future value cause from what i've been reading and studing upon is a lot more will be revealed down the road and the system's limits haven't truly been put to the test also hearing about Wii backwards compatibility with it's games and Virtual Console was a huge plus along with the upcoming (rumored as of right now but a strong possibility and having no reason of it NOT happening) Gamecube Virtual Console which is outstanding if true since they are pretty much extinct in local stores along with their systems (unless you get one from Ebay or Craigslist) but i would MUCH rather use the Wii U pro controller than the horrific Gamecube controller so that puts a new twist on some old classics i really enjoyed on Gamecube's underrated game library.

So far i'm enjoying the system pretty well it's very unique and i really like the Netflix/Hulu Plus play on it how you can watch on either the TV or Controller and how you access through things (internet browser,miiverse,games) is something i've never seen before,as for the huge knock on the Wii U's tablet controller battery life i have no issue with it since my gaming spot is right next to an outlet and i don't mind playing with a wired controller especially if the cord is as flexable and small as the AC adapter of the controller is.

So far there is no games that really interest me except for Mario U & Batman Arkham (just for the controller difference alone since i already played & beaten it on PS3) but there will be hope for down the road for much more games in it's library since i believe Nintendo hands down has a much more better game library than Playstation & 360 in history at least for me and it's tablet controller will give a fresh new taste on gaming as a whole.

As for my Network ID it's Mooglejoke as it is on PS3,go ahead and add me if you like i accept all requests and hope to be playing some great games with you guys in the future. =)

Is it just me or does/did it take almost 4 hours for you guys to get the system update done? Same was with my Youtube update thingy, though that took nearly an hour, I wonder if it's my internet connection.

Anyways, the U is running fine, but I'm having troubles with my Tv, it's old and pretty big and only thing I could make it suport was that 540i something screen type.

Yet it looks like my menu and games aren't 100% displayed on the Tv, unlike on the gamepad, I tried the 4:3 and 16:3 options, I think those are the ones, but it didn't help at all.

Any bright ideas, or should I just plug it to the HD television on the living room, though would be nice to play the games on my own room with peace.

The full system update did take about 2 hours for me personally and that's with running a pretty strong connection at 17ms and a 18.26 Mbps but the youtube/hulu plus updates only took around 5 minutes-10 minutes,not the ideal time but i'm patient.

Anyways, the U is running fine, but I'm having troubles with my Tv, it's old and pretty big and only thing I could make it suport was that 540i something screen type.

If you aren't running a flatscreen HDTV i would think you should get a pair of AV cables from the old Wii since i see a port on the back of the Wii U that can hook up that way,try that to see if it makes a difference.

Any bright ideas, or should I just plug it to the HD television on the living room, though would be nice to play the games on my own room with peace.

It will by far look best on HD (no shit right) but if you want to try it in your own space with the old TV try what i said above and try to come across a pair of old Wii AV cables (Red,White and Yellow) instead of using the HDMI cord,not saying it's gonna work but i would have a hard time believing that a Nintendo console (new as it is) wouldn't have a way looking half way decent on an older TV.

Got a chance to play the Wii U at a friends house. There were five of us total when I arrived, and we played Nintendo Land for hours. Only got through a third of the games, because we were addicted to each one we tried. I'm so amazed at how such simplistic ideas for games are enhanced by the Wii U controller. Constantly in my head I found myself thinking, this could not have been done on just any other console. Seriously, I'm super impressed at how well the tablet controller fit into each game type. We did play Scribblenauts and Mario Bros U as well, but not nearly as much, since we knew what to expect from those games. Additionally, one of the game commentators I watch is doing a blind run of ZombieU, a game that I would have picked up if I got a Wii U, and it looks really intense and interesting.

So wishing I had a Wii U now. I remember getting a Wii a year after launch and was totally underwhelmed. But that's probably because my first Wii game was Super Paper Mario.

I usually frequent the VG and collaboration Forums. If you find me anywhere else, I'm lost and can't find my way back.

I shot a POV-horror short film in one long take using the cameras on the Nintendo Wii U's gamepad during a video call.

The Blair Wii U Project - http://youtu.be/QQ10w3uduIc

It's an innovative use of the technology; nobody else has told a story using the Wii U camera and I'm proud to be the first. It also highlights the video call feature, something that's largely gone unnoticed.

This it what I did right away, seems that this TV of mine won't co-operate, you'd think it would since I had the Wii on it as well.

Anyway, thanks for the tip. I'll be getting fps game for it later this week, so maybe the screen wont be too much of an issue, it doesn't seem to bother me on Nintendoland.

PS: Using the gamepad so my post might be screwed a bit.

It's everything the Wii was supposed to be. Especially noticable with the motion controls in Nintendo Land.

Beat ZombiU yesterday. Much better than some of the review scores were saying it was. Glad it is over too I am tired of the game making me jump at what is around every corner. Going to be trying to beat scribblenauts next.

Damn, I was foolish enough to give CoD a 3rd chance, little advice, don't buy BO2, it's ok so far, but the maps are complete fuck ups, the single player is confusing and there isn't too many players. Definately my last CoD game.

Yes, use the Wii channel icon on the Wii U, and download the necessary software onto a 512MB or higher SD card. Download the software transfer channel onto the original Wii, and follow the instructions on the Wii U.

It took me about half an hour total.

So does anybody know when the first gamecube game will be released on the virtual console? Or when the virtual console is available?

Probably after the launch of Nintendo TVii. By the way, the system launched in Japan yesterday, alongside Nintendo TVii (America is getting it in December, UK in 2013).

Anyone else excited for the Rayman Legends demo? It arrives on December 13th, with the game out in February.

I plan on getting one around Christmas time. I think people are already giving such an unfair biased opinion about it when they don't even own one yet. Most gamers thought the Wii was gimmicky when it first came out, and then good games like Brawl and MadWorld came out for it and people loved it. I'm personally sold on Rayman Legends and Bayonetta 2.

Hell yeah! I've been a rayman fan since rayman 2, when i saw a sequel on on the wii u with ONLINE play i came! Just one more day, don't delay it and deliver us the demo ubisoft not like your zombi u demo which didn't get released, yet it was announced.

I played a demo of it at gamestop and I must say I hate how the game forces you to use the touch pad.

First I was platforming away as Rayman, running, jumping, having all sorts of fun. Then it integrated some touch screen slingshot stuff and I thought 'oh how nice'
Then the sudden realization that holy fuck im not controlling Rayman.
The game goes from platformer to one man lemmings.
You have to cut bricks, rope, move platforms etc. etc.

I dont want to play as Murphy I want to play as RAYMAN. I want to run though the pit, I want to punch the monster, I want to jump off the walls, why do I have to watch someone else do it while I babysit them?

In fact I was hoping that would be the case, where I can switch roles so that I am rayman. But I couldnt figure out how.

All I hope is these dont happen to often.

Hell even Mario bros. U is like this. There are pits and chasms you couldn't even DARE to cross without creating a fucking platform. The gamepad is good with friends and all but when you use it as an excuse to not finish your game I have a fucking problem. Good level design would be being able to beat the level WITHOUT using the game pad, not making it mandatory to jump a fucking gap.


I'm just a dreamer.

Yeah that's the only downside, but some other level don't have that, i hope that option is only in two player. the good news is that this is the first wii u exclusive title with ONLINE. This is a godsend because i haven't been able to try out the multi player because on assassins creed 3 i never can find a match, nobody is on it! Nintendo should've brought out a game with online exclusive to the wii u

Both great games, Mario is the deeper experience but more of the same, but Nintendoland is absolutely beautiful, and is really awesome to play, especially with friends.

And how about ZombiU or Batman: Arkham City-Armoured Edition?

I played the original Arkham City, I believe the added tons of crap for the Gamepad to do, but I doubt it wrecks the game. You do have a constant map on the Gamepad, if that is a plus, along with the DLC.

Only the deluxe edition one does, there is a sign saying it is included and besides, you can't mistake black for white.

Nintendo TVii releases today in North America. I'm interested to see how good this feature really is. I know I use the Wii U as a T.V remote, but hooking it up to cable/satellite boxes should be awesome.
