    [Console] I bought a Wii U!

    Does this thread seem familiar?

    Wallmart had the system bundled with Mario Kart 8 and Nintendo Land for $299!

    I also bought Mario 3D world and Hyrule Warriors!


    Does anyone else have a Wii U?

    Cobra, you live ?%?%???

    I got a similar bundle deal a few months ago but my daughter mainly plays. She really enjoyed Pikmin 3. Even bought the DLC.

    Re: [Console] I bought a Wii U!

    I'm thinking of upgrading my sister's hardware from a Wii to a WiiU but it's not really convincing me to go for the 1080p.

    She hasn't really complained about it so I'm just waiting until she starts wanting one. I kind of want that new Super Smash Bros. though.

    Would you say the upgrade is worth it? I tried out the new controller but didn't see it give much function to the game. Maybe I just played the wrong games.

    Tough call. It's not a huge upgrade from the Wii but the new controller is nice for some things.

    Re: [Console] I bought a Wii U!

    Nice!

    I am seriously considering a Wii U as well, may pick one up for Christmas, there are always good sales that time of year.

    Beyond the PS1/N64/Dreamcast era, I only own a PS3 and a Wii. The only reason I own a PS3 was becasue a friend was upgrading to a PS4, and I bought it off of him for $150 with a stack of games. And the only reason I did that was to play Last of Us and Twisted Metal. Beyond that, it sits and collects dust.

    The Wii on the other hand gets played a lot, I have a large library of downloaded classics on there, NES/SNES/TG-16/Sega and so on. I love my retro gaming.

    The Wii U has Mario Kart 8 and the new Super Smash Bros. and I want to play both of those. It's the only console I see myself playing in the foreseeable future since I am a PC kinda guy.

    Also, Nintendo is not trying to compete with PC like Xbox and PlayStation, and they have all the classic franchises I love. A huge plus for me.

    Yeah, I have a PS3 as well and it mostly collects dust now. It's the Nintendo titles that are drawing my attention.

    Almost all I play on a PC is TF2 with some Civ every now and then.

    Oooo Pikman 3 I gonna get that soon and Smash Bros!

    I play a lot of Mario Kart - Yoshi especially. Gran Turismo is good, but there is a lack of friendly Dinosaurs!

    Hyrule Warriors is pretty fun too. I wish the map was on the wii u gamepad though. I don't really need to see every objective I have been given all the time. I can just pause the game

    And Mario 3D world, is...Mario. How do you think it is?

    MARIO TIME!

    Uhh...by chance, is she using the wii controls? not the gamepad?

    I bought it yesterday, and have had no end of difficulty getting the controls to work. I've had to restart from the beginning. Very frustrating.

    She uses a combination of the Gamepad and a Wiimote with nunchuck. I've not heard her complain about the controls.

    I think there comes a time in every man's life where he says "I really need a nunchuck"

    The problem with the gamepad is: You tap to shoot pikmin, and you hold and drag to move the cursor. So, naturally, as you push down on the touchpad, you cause it to shoot out pikman. Very annoying. It's also almost impossible to hit flying enemies.

    You might be able to get away with it if you used the gamepad as your screen - since you can just target things directly. But then your TV is just doing nothing.

    ^^ She mainly uses the Gamepad as a map screen.

    Re: [Console] I bought a Wii U!

    eee mario kart!



    Well I bought a Wii mote and Nunchuck (black to match the wii u) and Metroid: Other M.

    I think the d-pad on the wii-mote should have been bigger. I have small/medium hands and it feels small.

    Also, Metroid game for the Wii U please!
