Question, is there any way to get 200 Wii points? I've got 600 left in my account and would like to grab another SNES game.

Otherwise I suppose I'll just grab an NES game and leave points on the table.

No, I think they only off $10/1000 point chunks on the Wii Shop as the smallest option.

Which SNES game are you looking for? You can buy some of the codes off Amazon for the direct amount (800 plus tax, I think) if they are the more popular titles, such as Super Mario World, for example. Doesn't help out your current situation, but it's a nice option if you just want to get one game (or have extra Amazon / Best Buy to convert to Amazon credit).

If you have 600 points to burn, I always recommend Bubble Bobble Plus at that exact price amount. The four player co-op is a fun addition if you have the people for it.

Well if you are waiting for a price drop at E3, don't hold your breath. I do think Nintendo knows they really need to deliver a spectaular E3. Whether or not they will is anyone's guess. They could drop the price this holiday, but they won't say that at E3, it would kill any sales momentum they have going with some retail titles finally coming out. I think if they can manage to get Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101 out this summer then follow it up with Wind Waker HD & hopefully the definitive version of Rayman they'll be in a pretty good space and hopefully have some really good surprises for Holiday. I'd be really surprised if Smash Bros came out this year, we haven't seen one goddamn thing on it.

Are you planning to get one regardless? If so then no point in waiting as their are quite a few games out now and seem to be a lot of different discounts at various retailers either free games or gift card deals. I got my Zombiu Deluxe set jst over a month ago and have been loving it. But if your not sure you want one then obviously wait until you see what your looking for, and hopefully E3 will show some great new games and give some sold time frames on ones we already know about.

August at the earliest, is my guess. That's where PS4/720 will be priced, which will give Nintendo time to cut price accordingly, if necessary (if 720 is $500, I could see them not dropping price, because I imagine PS4 is going to be around the same price).

But yes, wait. What's on shelves now will be there by the time E3 rolls around.

I say wait for E3. I've had my Wii U since launch and havent had a problem with it and current up to 8 games owned for it and a few eshop titles such as Trine 2 and Toki Tori 2.

At E3 Nintendo will have

Smash Bros(confirmed)
New 3D Mario(confirmed)
New Mario Kart (confirmed)
Project ''X'' which is possible Xenoblade Chronicles 2(most likely)
Yoshis Yarn (pretty sure we'll see that)
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem (pretty sure we'll see gameplay)
Retro Studios new game (no doubt we'll see it)
Wind Waker HD (im pretty sure we'll see in game footage)
Bayonetta 2 (im pretty sure we'll see footage)

I'm pretty sure everything I just named above will be shown off in some fashion,plus whatever else Nintendo has up their sleeves. I'm fairly confident this will be a good E3 for Nintendo. All ready owning a Wii U, this just gives me more to add to my game collection for it :D

Unless you are a big Monster Hunter fan (like myself) I would hold off until this holiday.

By then there will be a new bundle at least, more games to play, and the system interface should be improved as well.

I'm just wondering how much of that will come out this year-I think Yoshi's Yarn might be out by Christmas and Wind Waker is already dated for August. Beyond that I'm not sure anything on the above list will make it out this year we've seen so little on virtually all those titles.

Yoshi's yarn will be out this year, I'm pretty sure 3D Mario will be out this year and then Mario Kart around feb/march 2014(cant see them releasing both around the same time)

Project X is definitely 2014
Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem I'm guessing will be either holiday or early 2014
Smash Bros 2014
Retro.. im going to go out on a limb and say THIS year due to its development time and it was supposed to be shown off last year
Wind Waker HD this year
Bayonetta 2 2014

so pretty much what I'm thinking is

Retros game
Mario 3D
Yoshi's Yarn
Wind Waker HD

will be out this year. But again I'm just going based off retros development time,mario 3d being fully playable at E3(same with mario kart), Yoshis Yarn just seems like a fit for summer for some reason, Wind Waker as you stated all ready dated for August

plus around June we'll be getting Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3

Then of course the other third party games all ready confirmed for Wii U will be coming out as well. So as long as Nintendo can get out some titles within a month or so of each other, you know at least get titles out in a timely fashion and not have a 3-4 month drought again, were good

This is not even counting what else they show off at E3,hopefully it wont be Wii U Music xD

but to me the only thing wrong with Nintendo is two things

1. Advertisement
2. Lack of communication about title release dates

So hopefully we get solid release dates for stuff coming this year and well into next year for Wii U

Admittedly I'm hoping for a good Wii U summer slate because frankly the PS3 & 360 release list is looking mighty damn slim and while there will be a couple big titles end of the year for current gen isn't looking too hot either with the obvious focus on new hardware. Not to get too off topic but beyond The Last of Us I can't think of a single 360/PS3 title I'm excited about unless they have some real surprises up their sleeves at E3.

Yeah I'm not even interested in The Last Of Us and I cant really say either for 360 nor ps3 a title that im like ''omg i need that'' towards. The last time my PS3 got played was when I bought Ni No Kuni,which is awesome.

360 got played when I beat Tomb Raider and started Ultimate Ninja Storm 3. Then Lego City and Monster Hunter came out and the other systems went on the back burner lol.

Now that I think about it, one title I am looking forward to for PS3 is Beyond Two Souls, but other than that, nothing

360,whatever random multiplat comes out that i feel like playing lol

Wii U currently waiting for Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, cant wait for those

but like you said,hopefully all 3 have some good surprises up their sleeves

Hey guys, I need some help/advice..my son was playing Lego Undercover tonight and after 30 mins of play the gamepad started getting really weird with the audio. Anytime audio was to be played, it would pop, crackle, fizz, etc. It almost sounded like a radio station when you don't have it dialed in exactly straight. I rebooted the system and it was worse than ever on start up. When I moved the gamepad around, sometimes it would come in crystal clear, but only for a second. Even plugging in headphones didn't make it better.

He swears he didn't drop it and if he did he was sitting on the carpet and I have a hard shell on it. I tried to un-sync the gamepad, but found out you can't unless you format the system (even then allegedly) So I don't know whether I should try that or just call customer service and surrender it for 2 weeks..has anyone else experienced this problem? I want to try a battery pull but have to buy the right screwdriver first..

Sounds like the battery to me, make sure that it is completely charged (i.e. overnight) and then try again. I get this on the wiimotes and it is usually a sign that the batteries are just about to die.

Thanks for the tip. I was able to take the battery cover off, then left it unplugged for 30 minutes. Tried again and same problem. Let it charge over night and tried this morning, no go :cry: !! And with this gamepad, unlike my other devices, I leave it on the charger all the time when not in use. I know this practice is 'iffy' on whether to be done, but until Lego Undercover, we rarely used it and the gamepad would always be dead after 3 weeks of no use or on its last bar..

I'm going to call Ninty up in a minute..

Starmen.net's doing backflips. This is really awesome news.

I wonder what they'll do (or what they did) about the licensing on the tunes? Maybe Nintendo just decided to splurge and pay royalties? If so, I love you Nintendo.

It's funny, I was doing a bunch of those Club Nintendo surveys and for all the VC titles they have a question of what you would like to see or how to improve the service. I was starting to get lazy and my answer started to resemble Strell's post above.

In closing, y'all are welcome.
