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.

Anyone happen to know if static electricity can damage the game discs? Reason I am asking is because my NintendoLand disc is being really weird after a little run in with a static electricity charge it is always freezing on the intro screen at the same place. Tried dozens of times and does the same thing each time.

It hadn't had any problems up until yesterday when I brought my Wii U and NintendoLand with me to a friends house. I was taking it out of the box and while I tried to insert the game a pretty big shock hit me(It caught me off guard and I dropped the game but this is a moot point since it didn't cause any scratches and I wiped the smudges off)

Yeah though it hasn't worked since that shock and now I wonder if my disc has just been completely damaged because of some silly static electricity. Hope that isn't the case but if it doesn't work in the coming days I probably have to go buy another copy of the game.

If there is a ring around the disk then it means you have burned and can't return or play it, if that's not what happened, I can't help you, go the your local game shop and ask for help.

I didn't see anything unusual about it that made it obvious it was broken. It looked the same as my other discs which do work.

I do not have a Wii U right now, but I am considering one as a one big birthday present.

HOWEVER, I am not so sure I want one.

Why? Because U.S. console sales in January were dismal. Perhaps even worse than N-Gage, Gizmondo, Virtual Boy, etc at some time. I don't know, but it had only 59,000 units sold. I bet February won't be any better.

It also seems that third party support is dropping fast, and games once meant exclusively for the Wii U are now going to be on other consoles.

It also seems like very few games, if any, have been released since its launch.

I am not sure if I should go for one (or if I should create a separate thread to discuss this). Maybe I should just stick with a couple 3DS games, and get Pandora's Tower for my regular Wii. The other presents would not be video game related.

Is Nintendo going the way of Sega?

Doubtful, Sega launched a console when it wasn't ready, and even they couldn't back it up with their own games. As small as the lineup is currently, I assure you you will have hours of fun with Nintendo Land, assuming you have people who you want to play with.

Some cool eshop titles are currently out, and the next few months looks good.

Either way, the 3DS completely sucked for 7 months until they released Mario Land 3D, and now the system has an great library of games.

The dreamcast was amazing, games like the sonic adventure series, shenmue and crazy taxi pushed forwards. It's because the saturn was a flop and that there was so much hype for the PS2 the dreamcast would be the console at the back of the shelves you find after picking up the last PS2 and thinking "They still make those?!"

Dude, give it a while, every console is like this a launch and after a few months of launch, no matter how much hype surrounds the console. Developers are still realizing the full potential of the
Wii U, besides developers are also still making games, wait for the new Zelda and smash bros to come out, sales will rocket up, also Nintendo needs to get it's rep back since the Wii classed them as a kiddy console, so give it a month or two, in time the Wii U will be head to head with the other to next gen consoles.

Fair enough, it was fixed in a year though with Sonic adventure.

A couple of weeks ago we had to get a new Wii (it's OK because this one's RED!!) because the old one broke so now I have lost all my data. It's still kind of fun though, playing through all the games I beat years ago then just mostly left at the back of the game shelf.

Anyway, I assume by the end of the year Wii U will have at least double the amount of good games and it's already got Assassin's Creed III, Batman: Arkham City, New Super Mario Bros. U and Nintendo Land so it's most likely going to be in my grasps by this Christmas. On the other hand, I have yet to even play a Wii U.

Right so I see no one has mentioned this yet so I guess I will.

The new need for speed most wanted game that just came out yesterday on the Wii U is $30 off on EA's origin website. $29.99+tax is a huge steal of a price for a brand new game.

Anyone looking to getting that and hasn't already really needs to take advantage of this deal. I ordered my copy yesterday.

http://store.origin.com/store/ea/en_US/pd/productID.25173480 0/

That deal I guess is supposed to run on until next week I guess but try to take advantage of it soon if you can!

Yesterday was also the launch day for lego city and MH3U for anyone who was also interested in getting those games. I'm not aware of any deals for those games right now.

No, but I did Lego City. Played it for so many hours in the last couple of days. Really engrossing, and best gameplay in the series yet (and a few Nintendo references here and there).

Does anyone have plans for getting the NFS MW?

I pretty much disliked the original MW on GameCube already just because of lack of tuning compared to NFSU2, but by checking pics and seeing how much people are giving positive opinions, has made me bit curious about it.

Might be just hype because it's a new game for the U, but I don't know, I guess I'll wait and see what that Project Cars is all about.

I am getting it. Was going to buy it at full price but origin had it on sale for 29.99. That sale is now over though and it is back at 59.99 on their site with other versions maintaining the discount for some reason.

I wonder what that's all about, I wouldn't be surprised if it was actually some mistake or just simply a way to boost up the launch a bit, I wonder if too many people even knew about it, some were talking about it on Miiverse though.

Well, so far some people have given the NFS quite good review scores, hoping to see your opinion once you've gotten the chance to play it, been a while since my last racing game, if you don't count Mariokart Wii, it would be the original MW for Gamecube.

I'm hoping for the best given all the good things I have heard about the series. Plus I did rather enjoy burnout paradise which this game is supposed to play similarly to. Looking forward to playing it in a few days I'l be sure to report back on how I feel about the game.

Well I have had a go with the game now. Played it for about 4 hours or so already. Got the game 2 nights ago pretty much.

Anyway the game is solid as I expected. Took a little getting used to knowing what I needed to do and how to use the controls properly. Once I got that issue out of the way I started playing and I was having fun with it. Obviously this isn't a burnout title so there is a little more emphasis on the racing and less on the crashes but it is still a fun game.

Last night I had a go at the online mode as well and while I think the sample size is a little small based on my short 30-60 minute run with it, it seemed like a solid mode that was fun to play. 6 players online in a room and you do stuff. I'm not sure how doing stuff is determined be it someone selects it or it is automated system in the room you are in but I found it interesting and there was a lot of stuff to do.

The freezing issue I have heard about crept its ugly head into my playtime during this online session I had. It was the first time I ran into this issue and it was during a race too. I'm hoping that was just a blip and it's not something I should expect regularly.

Anyway I would recommend anyone get this game if they are on the edge about it. It's a fun game both in single player and online. I'l definitely be spending a lot of my days playing this game in the next few weeks which almost hurts me to say since I have such a backlog of games I need to play and finish such as Fire Emblem Awakening, Luigi's mansion 2 and three castlevania DS games that I ordered from gamestops website, there is also Terraria which I just got off of XBLA yesterday too. I got a lot of stuff to play to say the least and there is only more to come on the horizon. I better get a move on playing and finishing these games.

Why would you call someone an idiot in the first place? You should know that would have raised a red flag on miiverse even if it was justified calling him that.

Because i'm batman! No but it's because he was acting like an idiot and the censorship on it is just pretty fucking dumb.

At first I was so excited and was ready to explode when I heard the Launch of the WiiU. Though, I didn't knew much about it during the time until reviews, the games, and etc. came out a little bit more. I was even less excited that they actually had two different versions that are both quite expensive. One that's $300 and comes with only 8 GB it's a rip-off and just for $50 dollars more can you get the 32 GB and Nintendo Land, with a few more accessories added on. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Nintendo Fan and love all their games, but I can't deal with how even the games are even more expensive. $60 for freak'in one game?! Nintendo is clearly eating your money away. But once Super Smash Bros 4 comes out on the WiiU I'm getting it regardless of what the price is. Because SSB never disappoints me.

Just a little Canadian rant here for a second. Our games are more expensive. Wii games were 60$. Wii U games are 60$. That is a reasonable price for us. Get over yourselves.

Anyway, the basic bundle is a clear ripoff. The deluxe is actually a great value though.
