I didn't know people played MKwii with the gamecube controller. Is that practice normal? I like the Wii Wheel for that and GC for brawl.

Look at the bright side I guess. While you do lose gamecube controller support for brawl on the Wii U with your normal save file you can always start over on your old Wii now that the data is cleared from it. It might be a cool experience doing it all over again.

Also with Mario Kart you can use this opportunity to practice with the wii remote/wii wheel controls since it will more than likely be supported in the next game. That is unless you would prefer the pro controller for the next mario kart. Your call on that one I guess.

I guess you will need to get a Pro controller then. I still don't have one, but I probably will want one for the new Smash Bros game and VC games.

yeah, guess i'll have to buy a pro controller...

About making a list of everyone's usernames, is everyone okay with that? I could put only the ID's of people who are fine with it, but put the username of someone who wants to approve people by PM first.

im fine with it. why would people be not fine with it? its exactly the same with how the 3ds one worked: you have to approve the friend, its not an automatic thing.

Nintendo just made another awesome Nintendo Direct. Mario and Luigi game coming to 3DS, and Lego City Stories looks really awesome. Tons of eshop games for 3DS, and Google Street view for Wii U.

Mario Golf, Mario and Luigi: Dream Team, and a ton of cool eshop games. More Lego City Undercover trailers, and Luigi DLC for Mario U.

Personally, Lego City is the only thing that excites me in the short term. Pikmin 3 looks great, but having never played a Pikmin game before, Lego City Undercover would win out for me (though I'm getting both).

Trust me, they are brilliant. If you can pick up the other two get pikmin 2 first. It's longer, the first can be finished in half an hour.

So, today could be the day Sony announces the PlayStation. This is related because I have a bad feeling that if it's true, Wii U sales will start to go down a bit and we get less players. I think this because most people have come to think of Nintendo as a Child's company. I don't care, I'm getting all three (I already have the Wii U so two more left!) and playing them all equally!

Yep, I still respected the Wii and thought it was a great console (even though I never owned one)

I doubt it. I bet that thing will be more expensive than the Wii U perhaps MUCH MORE expensive. If anything it moves the Wii U closer to the front of the pack due to the price tag. Let's not forget that the wii is outselling the wii u(At least in america anyway) The original DS despite being dead still sells at half the 3DS' rate again likely due to price(And again only in america).

People go for the cheaper products. The Wii had a nice perk to it and it was the cheapest of the consoles thus it did amazingly well. Once the other consoles dropped to more manageable prices and the games stopped coming on the wii the sales dropped.

This is why when the PS4 and Xbox 3 come out they will likely phase out the PS3 and 360 slowly and once that happens and they aren't heavily advertised the Wii U will be the cheapest of the major consoles out and its sales will pick up because of the next gen stuff coming out.

PS4 and Xbox 3 will struggle in sales at the beginning just like the Wii U supposedly has(Even though it is far from the truth) and the Wii U will explode because of all the awesome games coming out plus it being the cheaper console of the 3.

You never know, remember the PS2 launch? Robberies of the console were reported ONE hour after it launched, shops when out of stock in 2 hours and prices on e bay for one went over £1000 and the PS2 was reasonably priced. You never know, if Sony and Microsoft can build lots of hype about the console then holidays 2013 will be a free for all for the PS4. And I think Sony learnt from the PS3 launch to not over price their console. We will just have to wait and see, I guess.

Can a Wii U play movies off it's harddrive and through a usb memory stick like the ps3 can?

Or did Nintendo make their console poop and it doesn't support movie playback? Can it read 1080p/720p mp4s?

How often do you guys actually use your Wii U?
I feel bad for using mine as scarcely as I do.

I use it fairly frequently. My 3DS and fire emblem awakening usually clogs up a lot of my playtime in the day but at night I usually sit down with the Wii U and play some AC3 or BO2 with one of my friends. It's been more BO2 than AC3 though unfortunately since AC3 matchmaking doesn't work properly and sometimes takes hours to put you in a game and hasn't worked since launch. I am not a big CoD fan but I needed a "new" game to play online with my friends and since AC3 wasn't working BO2 was pretty much the only other option I had.

I haven't played much NSMBU or NintendoLand since launch though. Only when I have people over at my house do I play those games now.

Hey guys, I feel ashamed that I haven't posted to this thread, perhaps it's only a good thing since I never post anything really constructive.

Anyways, just had the final nail with BO2, oh dear god, as if the two previous weren't enough to convince that it's not a good game series at all.

Well, finally got my copy of Ninja Gaiden 3, I guess the free DLC is already out, the estimated time says 1 hour so I'm trying to be patient.

Does anyone else have this game, if so, how is the online, from a gameplay video it seemed like lots of fun, but I did hear that not too many play online, doesn't surprise me though and well, as long as I can have challenging game that is full of blood and gore, I'm happy.

This guy has no idea what he is talking about. Some of the points he made were completely false and he had no idea what he was saying.

The only valid point he made was the fact that there are just a bunch of ports right now. He acts like the thing is never going to have any games worth having which is false.

His issue with the ridiculous loading times have already been mentioned by Nintendo and they are going to fix it up in a spring and summer system update.

His stupid issue with the TV button is also dumb. Just press the stupid button while it is turning on and it works no need to wait for the system to completely boot up.

He can't power down his games while playing CoD? He is dead wrong on that. He is likely just pressing the home button which at the time of his video wouldn't work in online menus for that game. Just press and hold the power button and the system turns off no need to hassle with going to the home menu.

His issues are completely unjustified and he just wrote the system off for no good reason. I made sure to dislike that video as his reasoning was completely wrong. The guy should learn more about how the system works and what games are coming out before completely writing it off.
