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.

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.

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.

It sounds good and even by checking the gameplay videos, it looks good, not a single negative thing has been mentioned that would be a game breaker.

I did see some guy on Miiverse saying how he is forced to buy a DLC because he got busted, sounds complete BS to me, but if it's true, then, WTF?

Still for some reason there is something inside my head telling me, that I won't end up liking it, been right too many times before and ended up being disappointed, so I'm not going to get it any time soon at least, still, I'll keep it on my "list".

Be careful over there, there are many trolls who do nothing but flame everyone and act like idiots, insulting the console and everyone who has it. Some guy on European area of Ninja Gaiden 3 has been bitching how the Wii U sucks and isn't true next gen. console because the game has several frame drops, he has also been doing so to many other communities.

I told him that Wii U is next gen, even if it wasn't as powerful as the new PS4 and Xbox, he gave the typical answer about me being wrong because next gen means improvements that Wii U doesn't have.

I ended the conversation by telling him that in that case every kid born after me, after year 1993 ended, isn't next gen then since they're about 90% of the time, complete retards who show that humanity has started to take steps backwards, made my day when the next thing he said was complete nonsense that had nothing to do with our topic.

60 was the price for Wii games, so it was for Gamecube games here in Finland, so don't quite get what you're saying, average price has been around 45 - 60 euros over here ever since Gamecube.

I got to agree with the two models though, I wasn't very excited when they announced two, but then again, got the deluxe so, meh, I don't care.

Right now I'm quite desperate to find a good news site about gaming in general, places like eurogamer and wiiudaily makes me want to smash pari of lemons into my eyes, both seem very biased, the other one is full of negativity for Nintendo, the other one is full of.... well fuck, they just make me sick.

Any recommendations?

Indeed. I've still only had the game freeze on me once and I have played a lot more since my little write up on it. That issue appears to be not as major as I have heard it was unless I am just lucky.

That guy on Miiverse must have been going crazy or something. DLC is on the disc already as a part of the original purchase price. I got busted by cops several times and nothing bad came of it. Don't you think this game would be getting a bad reputation if you had to buy DLC when getting busted by cops? That would be stupidity on a whole new level.

If you enjoy racing titles at all I think you will like this game. I really enjoyed burnout paradise and I came into this game thinking it wouldn't be as good but I actually feel like I am enjoying this more than I did with Paradise a couple years ago. If you aren't going to get it right away definitely keep it on your list it is a game worth having if you are into racing games at all.

Right now I'm quite desperate to find a good news site about gaming in general, places like eurogamer and wiiudaily makes me want to smash pari of lemons into my eyes, both seem very biased, the other one is full of negativity for Nintendo, the other one is full of.... well fuck, they just make me sick.

Any recommendations?

Try Gamesradar. They are quite fair to every console, and they give plenty of coverage of every thing you would possibly want to know about. Also, they have a really funny team of writers. I started reading about 3 years ago, and although their staff has been rearranged, they still have the best articles I can find on the internet.

For Nintendo only, try Gamexplain. Their main site has all consoles, but the guy who runs their youtube channel (as well as their site) has pretty much all Nintendo coverage in the form of analyses, discussions, and lots of preview content.

Indeed. I've still only had the game freeze on me once and I have played a lot more since my little write up on it. That issue appears to be not as major as I have heard it was unless I am just lucky.

I've heard people replacing their U's just because of the freezing issues, sounds foolish to me, unless it like got completely out of hand, I don't understand it, most of the time I've had rather logical reasons for mine to freeze, though it barely happens to me.

I guess there really has been something wrong with them.

That guy on Miiverse must have been going crazy or something. DLC is on the disc already as a part of the original purchase price. I got busted by cops several times and nothing bad came of it. Don't you think this game would be getting a bad reputation if you had to buy DLC when getting busted by cops? That would be stupidity on a whole new level.

May have been a troll or just simply one of those who act before they think, I'd find it amusing if you really had to pay real money for it, would be a bitch slap to all those people who always complain how they want their games to be as realistic as possible.

But for everyone else, it would of been completely retarded.

If you enjoy racing titles at all I think you will like this game. I really enjoyed burnout paradise and I came into this game thinking it wouldn't be as good but I actually feel like I am enjoying this more than I did with Paradise a couple years ago. If you aren't going to get it right away definitely keep it on your list it is a game worth having if you are into racing games at all.

Hmm...

Looking good, thank you, checked some comments and didn't see any 8 years old kids talking about, CPU's GPCPU fkahkrwjfbjhrfklnzdn,fmna, bullshit, I find it amusing, they talk about stuff they obviously know nothing about, just names and what they're supposed to do.
