Getting my wii u shipped back to from nintendo, it was out for repairs. They didn't say what the problem was, but it had the repair cost and it was $175. Though I didn't have to pay anything because its has one year warranty. I would still have like to know what the problem really was. So basically two weeks ago my wii u stopped turning on, it was suggested that I reset the power supply and it work, then a few days later it did it again, but this time it completely died. So I had to send it in for repairs, its been a fast process they only had it two days and its fixed.

Can anyone convince me that the Wii U is worth purchasing at this time? I like the concepts for Batman but I've read about the slow down / stuttering issues. Sonic Racing and Super Mario look like the options at this time - and I can get my 6 year old into it.

It's basically a wii 2.0 with 3ds like functions, if you don't have a problem shelling out close to $500 then go right ahead. It is Christmas, I still remember opening my Deluxe NES set and you only get that enjoyment from your kids a few times in life.

You'll get a slip of paper back with it which will tell you what was wrong with it. At least that's how it was with Wii and DS.

With all due respect, if you need to be convinced to purchase something when it doesn't appear that cost is the issue, that probably means you shouldn't.

That being said, Batman ran just fine for me and Sonic Racing is my favorite game on the system with its off TV play. Mario U is fun and Nintendoland is surprisingly challenging, especially DK.

Maybe your 6-year-old would like a 3DS better? You can still get one for $40 off at Best Buy through Saturday.

Just wait for the price drop when the Xbox comes out next year. There's very few games right now since it just launched and the price is the highest it will ever be. Even if you bought now, you'd have to take an ass raping every time you made a game purchase since everything is new. Just wait like everyone else.

Speaking of the NES, I had this game and actually managed to beat it back then. Hey, they should do a reboot!

If Nintendo can nail the software, this has the possibility of being the new Nintendo 64. Playing co-op with friends is awesome.

I have to say for me and my girlfriend this game is great. Gives me a decent challenge and she feels like she's doing something

*she's not that great but I still love her haha*

And its great while I have friends over. But I will say that solo I haven't really touched it.

Awesome. Thank you.

And if anyone wants to stock up on games for the Wii, Best Buy has a pre-order B2G1 deal going on. Made the most of it and picked up The Last Story, Little King's Story, and Sakura Wars.

I haven't tried to exchange FC for a age on the WiiU Wii mode so I can't speak to that, but I just payed a round of SSBB and it worked fine*.

Does anybody have an idea of when Aliens: Colonial Marines is coming out for the Wii U? I know the PC, PS3, and 360 versions are releasing on Feb 12th 2013 but no word yet on the Wii U release?

They confirmed as being within the WiiU "launch window", so 1st quarter of 2013 (before end of March, hopefully).

My Current Lowball Sale is NOW CLOSED.  I lost so much sweat & tears. [cries]

I am on the fence on whether to buy this system. I played one yesterday at Best Buy and thought it was a lot of fun, but I am worried about third party for the system. This is mostly due to the fact that I keep seeing speculating on the graphical capabilities as a reason that third party developers will stay away from the system. What's your thoughts, should I buy one or not?

Finished the story mode for New Super Mario Bros. U. 100% Completion with all coins found.
What a great game. I've always been most fond of the 2D iterations. This one is definitely up there with SMB3 and SMW. The one little nagging aspect is I think it borrowed maybe a little too much from those two games...

Still playing Nintendo Land in bursts. I just have a couple of the multiplayer games left to get stars on.

Hoping to see a new price reduction in the Sonic kart game or Tekken; I'd like to pick both of those up.

I hope the update for TVii (if it requires one) isn't as terrible as the previous ones have been.

I know that eshop games are tied to the system and can be played by any user, but what about prepaid cards. Can any user, use the balance, or just the one that entered the card? What about download history, can a second user go to the eshop and redownload stuff?

Will TVii do anything with basic antenna cable with no cable boxes? It would be really sick if we could record TV and to the Wii U 's hard drive and then play it back just like a DVR since basic cable doesn't come with a DVR and our household isn't interested in upgrading any time soon.

Not sure about the first question (which I'm curious about myself), but they've already said that the Wii U won't function as a DVR in any capacity.

Would be nice to enable TVii to change my cable box AND my TV (since the remote option only controls one or the other at a time). Otherwise, I'll be interested to download and install it tomorrow, and check it out!
