Ninja Gaiden 3 is far superior to the 360/PS3 version that released earlier this year, has minor framerate hiccups which most people aren't bothered by.

Batman: Arkham City is a solid port, better in some areas worse in others.

Mass Effect 3 on WiiU is butchered don't even bother with it. EA put minimal effort into porting the game over.

Darksiders 2 is another solid port, some say the best version of the game, haven't played it myself. I played the jacked up PC version :cold:

I was also waiting for Amazon on the Hori screen protector but was surprised to find it at Toys R Us. Not listed online. B&M item #873124003901. $7.99.


Thanks for the tip! I'll try looking tomorrow. It's been driving me nuts not being able to open my system until I get one.

Assassin's Creed 3 has better lighting but otherwise runs the same as the other versions.

CoD: Black Ops 2 looks and runs better. Online feels exactly the same.

Went to Walmart here in Fort Worth, Tx and was able to snag a deluxe. Wal-Mart guy told me they didn't have any in. I asked him if he could check the back as the website said they had them in store. He gave me the typical wonderful attitude you can expect from WAL-MART associates and went to the back room. He returned with a box of four deluxe models and said they must have just came in. I guess stores are already getting more in and the system is not that hard to find if you look.

When you say feels exactly the same do you mean lag compensation and bad hit markers? Im holding out hope they are not there.

Anyone else having issues connecting to Netflix? It let me attempt to login, but I think I mistyped the password (it's the only reason I can think of on my side) and now anytime I attempt to use the Netflix app, it tells me it is unable to connect to Netflix at this time, and gives me a useless URL to go to. Then my only options are to Retry or Exit.

-Man, I get the last Deluxe System in stock and Of course it has to be the one with the faulty Gamepad screen! It stutters, and tears with pixels, like a satellite dish in a Thunderstorm! -Fucking sucks! -It's not a total loss you can still use the Gamepad, but now it's asking for a Gamepad update, and it gets to 80% and Fails! So I called Nintendo, I have to send it in, which is going to be forever! okay, okay maybe not forever, but 10 days is a long time when you just bought a new system!.. I'm Sad :(

Kinda new to the external HD field, would a Seagate be an OK choice? That 2TB one that Office D will be selling is tempting.

I used Netflix on Sunday with Wii U but I didn't seem to have any issues :/ Could it be just a snag this evening?

Side note: Noticed the Hulu Plus download was available today, by the way

Went to gamestop to see if they had any deluxe, wishful thinking, but got on their waiting list. Then decided to drop by freddie, and woohoo they had 1 left. Snaged that :)

K-mart and Target had some deluxes today where I live. Target had 3 deluxe and 3 reg. I sent $500 before I knew it, smart. People are having luck, just drive around and hit every shop you can think of.

i thought i saw there was an issue if your password had an @ in it. so if you do that is the problem, easy fix change your password.. it not, im not sure what the problem is.

Yes, the Seagate is a better HDD than what Nintendo has listed.

Forgive me if this is the wrong thread, but is anyone else regretting the purchase of a Wii U? I bought one, and honestly, it just isnt doing much for me. :/ 3 days in and I am already thinking of selling it. (no not scalping, I would either sell it on here at cost or craigslist at cost. seriously.) I just dont dig Nintendo Land and I dont have enough faith in the system to buy a new game.

You should try a few of the higher rated exclusives before throwing in the towel. Perhaps NSMBU or Scribblenauts?

I stopped by Target yesterday and was told that they received ten on top of the ten preorders they had and that they were sold out within an hour. Since I was one of the preorders he told me it would be held until Sunday (I picked one up at Wal-mart's midnight launch already) and would be put out for sale after that. I asked when they would be getting more in and he said they were expecting a truck BEFORE THE 20th OF NEXT MONTH!!! Lol

I did a post search in this thread and couldn't see anybody who has my same problem:

I ordered a wireless Pro Controller from Amazon back in September. And the estimated delivery status just got bumped into late December. Anybody get their controller from Amazon or have the same delay issue?

Pro controllers are in stock at a lot of retail locations. Just cancel the preorder, and buy it locally.

the gamestop that i work at is all sold out of the pro controllers, but i guess it just depends where you are at

I am in NJ and all the stores that I visited were out of the controllers in black. Plenty of white ones.

I have a deluxe layaway preorder at Wal-Mart but won't be able to pick it up for another week or two probably. Anyone know how long they hold these?
