Wii U Online Sucks Jan. 13th, 2013 @ 10:30 PM Reply

For those of you who own a Wii U do you have a hard time connecting to the Internet and updating? I get at least six different error codes when I update. I can't update so I can't enjoy Guitar Hero since my Wii is jacked up.

I don't own it, it's my brother's.

The initial update is a complete pain in the ass, but everything has worked fine for me since. Most likely a problem on your end.

It's not on my end. The Wii U just sucks. I'm on my third update or so.

The only online problems I have experienced with the Wii U was with assassins creed 3 multiplayer. Everything else has been fine though.

That is a ridiculous statement and you should feel ridiculous. All games have updates to do when they are first plugged in. The PS3 in notorious for that.

Please tell me why my statement was ridiculous. I'd love to know how it is. This isn't a game updating, it's a system update.

Why ask if people are having the same problem as you if you just shoot down their response when they say they haven't had any problems on their end? At least in this case, only the initial update for Broccoli. Besides, I haven't had much problems updating my Wii U either.

Dude, modern game systems always have to update out of the box. That's not a fault of the console.

And trust me, once you get that shit over with, you'll be loving the system.

I heard the ports like Arkham city aren't transcended very well.

Obviously it is because my Wii U has been perfect since Day 1 (after the long update). Play Black Ops 2 online just fine.

True, but the Gamepad is my second favourite controller next to my (precious) Wavebird. The D-pad is seriously to die for.

You're still not going to get over the fact that the GameCube is dead, are you?

SNES had no NES plug-ins.
N64 had no SNES plug-ins.
Gamecube had no N64 Plug-ins
Wii has gamecube plug-ins and people get mad when the Wii U doesn't follow the same path even though it at least kept backwards compatability with Wii.

Nintendo is not obligated to put backwards compatible controller ports on every console. If they did it would look like a mess since NES, SNES, N64 and gamecube would all have controller ports.

Just because the Wii did it with gamecube doesn't mean it was always going to be that way.

I had two or three updates. This is the only update being a pain in the ass. If it was on my end it would've done the same thing on the first few updates.

I've heard the updates are quite the nuisance, but the actual connection is just fine.

Are you sure your internet doesn't just suck?

What an idiotic statement bro. Calm down.

I haven't had any problems with the updates even though my Internet is pretty much donkey shit and is shared between 3 different people.
