I dunno if this has been answered, but my in store pickups of 2 Wii U games at gamestop still show as "open", and says I will receive a call when the items are at the store. Can I trust this? Will they actually take the time to call me on release day, or is my order even going to go through?


After reading the past 24 hours -- you need to stop being so paranoid. Everything will be okay. BREATHE.

Now that I say that, watch everything fall apart for you in a giant ball of flames.

I thought they would dedicate more time into presenting the Wii U, I think the whole thing lasted only 5 minutes...

Not gonna lie... NSMBU looks amazing. Seeing it on Jimmy Fallon in HD really made it feel like it was actually running on my TV. Hurry up Sunday!!!!

Reggie presenting Wii U on Jimmy Fallon right now.



Wow, could Jimmy Fallon be more fake.....and he sucks at mario lol.

BTW anyone else notice that big box thing and thick cord on the controller? I wonder if we will ever see a use for it at home?

On a side note...I feel bad for Triforce Johnson....waiting for the "first" console as I stare at mine lol!

I would be more excited for this if I could afford it. I'm going to get my preorder on Sunday but not open it until I'm sure I can afford the rest of Christmas.

I'm not watching the TV now, but I've always found Reggie to be full of shit.


I think there was a good interview at E3 this year where reggie was trying to convince us that the games weren't straight ports, but he couldn't come up with anything else in Batman arkham city besides the fact you could use the Wii touch screen to control the batarang..

What, you mean like how Mario Kart Wii ran flawlessly and the 3DS has fantastic online? Adding friends is super easy and you can even join a friend's game off the friends list.

What you mean to say is you're basing it off your past ignorance.


wow you can name one game good job.. and the 3DS online is nowhere near "fantastic"

The simple fact is that PS3 and Xbox are light years ahead of nintendo with online and therefore it is very reasonable to assume that the Wii U won't be much better.

well my biggest fails today are:

bestbuy.com and walmart.com for processing and still not doing anything even to this min , even though i preordered a month ago. Walmart says i will have estimated del tues 20 which is impossible because it hasnt even shipped yet. SO i will be calling my bank to file a dispute on the wasted shipping i paid

That isn't how console gens work. You can try to downplay it any way you'd like, but it doesn't change what gen the Wii was. It also has double the ram of current game consoles. Since ram is the biggest bottleneck atm, that kind of matters.


"iPhone 6 is next gen gaming! It's gonna be equivalent to the Xbox720! What are you guys laughing at me for?!"

Still can't decide if I should nab a Basic if the opportunity arises, or hold out no matter what for a Deluxe. DECISIONS.

People are still camping out for this despite preorders being widely available before release? O_O


It's fun. People with a common interest chilling out. I'm going with a friend to wait at Walmart tonight around 9 to wait and chat up some other Big N fanboys and girls.

I might go and get some street passes for my 3ds if I have the time. Don't really need the Wii U but wouldn't mind playing with it during the holidays and selling it off in January (even if I lose a few bucks).

Interesting to see that there is different packaging for the Deluxe units. One picture here has a black box and this one has a blue one.

And just like that, Newegg has sold out the deluxe bundle. The basic bundle is still available but likely not for long.
