Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Pikmin 3 is a wonderful game full of digital fruit that made me hungry to look at, though I preferred the GamePad controls by far, wasn't keen on the Wiimote in Pikmin 2 or 3 at all.

Re: Virtual Console Prices

Ive never had an issue with VC prices, set against the cost and hassle of finding a decent working original console and cart, its generally cheaper and easier to go VC. Thin they should be cross buy though.

Re: Club Nintendo to Shut Down and be Replaced...

Ive had probably 5/6 VC games through the program as I cashed most of my stars in for wii points, I also grabbed a multicart 3DS case. Was a bit annoying filling the surveys out but I didnt mind, it was free stuff at the end of the day. I imagine the new system will be similar to the Deluxe Wii U Pr...

Amiibo

Saw there wasn't a topic for Amiibo, thought i'd start a thread. So has anybody been collecting them? And what are your thoughts on implementation? I bought Captain Falcon, figure is really nice and the levelling stuff in Smash Bros is fun. Tried to pre-order Lucina from Shopto and didnt in the end ...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Any games you recommend? I'm looking at monster hunter as I have never really played one but the few hours I have played of it, it seems like a game I would love. Anyone have the NES remix game? I have seen it on then 3ds but only on YouTube for the wiiu, is it as good as it looks? NES Remix is gre...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Bought Weapon Shop de Omasse on the 3DS eShop sales. Quirky idea, gets a little old after an hour or so but its interesting and undemanding, can see myself dipping in and out of it.

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Got Smash Bros U for xmas, goes nicely with the Capt Falcon amiibo figure I picked up a few weeks back. Really enjoyed the amiibo levelling stuff, def gonna get a couple more of those. Online is pretty solid too, none of the slowdown I had on the 3DS version. That said, I'm finding it really difficu...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

By the way, for those that bought the Wii-Us bundled with a game (ie in the box, not a store bundle). Is the game a download or do you get a disc? I'd assume you don't get a disk case, but then again I'd assume it's a download anyway. Cheers. Depends on the bundle. Wind Waker HD bundle is a downloa...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Toxie and Roo, see you both got Tekken TT2 - would you recommend it? I'm not huge on fightérs outside Marvel vs Capcom and Smash Bros, but its on offer on the eshop.

Re: Mario Kart 8

Well now we're talking about Blue Shells. Trailing an item behind you never stopped these (unless it does in MK7 which I haven't played much of). I think just because you're in the lead at any given moment doesn't necessarily mean you're the best pure player and deserve to win. Anybody has the righ...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Just in case anyone was thinking about grabbing another copy of Mario Kart 8, trading it, and keeping the Club Nintendo code for a free game - it works, I did it yesterday. Bought for £39 of amazon, traded for £32 credit at CEX (which nabbed me Tropical Freeze) and registered the CN code on a new ac...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

I personally wasn't thrilled with what was shown during Nintendo's E3 Digital Event. In my opinion, the Wii U needs a fresh injection of new games yesterday - as an owner it largely feels like time has stood still. All that was featured will likely wind up in my collection, but for the immediate fu...

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Anyone with a 32GB Wii U and got their free game with Mario Kart 8 might want to check their Nintendo Network Premium account thingy (You know, what gives you points for when you buy stuff on the eShop). I checked mine and it seems I got points for my free Game&Wario download! A whole near 300 poin...
