LOL @ someone saying a goddamn demo is worth buying a $350 console for.

Pretty sure he was saying that the actual game is worth buying the console for, and anyone who hasn't should check out the demo.

Bingo. That's exactly what I stated. I haven't checked the eShop in the past week or so, but there wasn't any indication the Rayman Legends demo was even available unless you did a specific search for it. Hopefully Nintendo gets a dedicated demo section up and running soon.

I honestly wish I could return my WiiU for a full refund, that last day to return was the 18th at Gamestop. For the $300 I spent on it I'm really not impressed and find the tablet akward for Assaisan's Creed 3. The only good thing is using the tablet for playon media streaming and posting on the wannabe facebook...miiverse it still does not justify the cost.

I missed out on the playon deal, sadly. Considered getting the lifetime offer of $29.99 or whatever it was, but after reading horrible reviews across the interwebz, it might not be worth the hassle.

Found a video online testing 4 brands of screen protectors. Looks like Hori comes out on top, followed by Power A.

P.S. You own a Wii U yet or waiting for that killer app?

The Hori one has worked out nicely for me, and was fairly easy to apply too. I'd recommend it.

I am really impressed with ZombiU. Is it groundbreaking, no. It does the whole Zombie genre justice. It's really fun because the zombies are tough but at the same time, you have to be cautious because if you die, your character dies, and you have to go kill the zombie who you turned into to get your gear back. There have been some oh shit moments because of the fact that I just can't reload my game so I have to be super cautious sometimes.

Also I applaud them for the uber crazy mode where if you die, your savegame gets deleted and you start at the beginning of the whole game. No getting another survivor to continue, it's you start the game from the beginning.

Well can I sell it then? I wouldn't really call it return fraud, since I'm trying to exchange a perfectly working brand new Wii U. It's not like I'm gonna be wrapping up a 3DO in the box.

Or maybe the Wii U is more like a 3DO than people are willing to accept.

You can sell it all you want, your just not going to get the $500, $600, $700 dollars you were hoping to get. That is your own fault for getting it from a place like that has that kind of return policy. Ask for $275 and just take it as a hit or go get store credit, your choice.

I would love to get $270. Obviously I'm willing to take a loss. Obviously nobody is going to pay $400 like they did six years ago. Obviously I acted stupidly. But it's okay, in the past I've acted intelligently. Hopefully I'll die in the black.

I'm just trying to make the best of a bad situation. Is it too much to ask, that I only lose 15%? That I give my loss to a fellow CAG, rather than 4 Gamerz with their terrible and appalling customer service?

Come on everybody. Low ballers welcome. Yeah yeah, maybe I should go create a for sale thread. Sorry.

I would just keep the console and wait for games you want to come out, meanwhile you could transfer your Wii stuff from it and play some of the Wii games you never got around to playing on it. If you are going to take a loss on the console then its worth keeping and buying a few games for during its lifecycle at least IMO. Keep in mind Nintendo seems to be on the trend of taking out backwards compatibility from their consoles at some point during the cycle of the machine so if you want that feature keeping a launch model may be a good idea.

Or he was just complimenting a game for offering the feature in addition to other games that have, or complimenting it specifically on the fact that it's a FPS offering the mode.

I had preordered the pro controller around sept/oct with the coupon at Newegg. They had changed the release date to 12/31, which sucked but I was still willing to wait. Now they are OOS :(

I know this isn't the point, but do you have a game that actually uses it?

Agree. I quickly cancelled my pre-order after seeing the now 'out of stock' at Newegg. With no demand for it, I hope it goes down in value soon enough...if I ever do care.

I've seen some on shelves across different Wal-Mart and Target stores. I've also noticed quite a lot of Wii Us, especially the vanilla set, at various b&m stores too. :-(

I'm personally having a difficult time finding a place to buy the Hori Screen Protectors. Amazon's oos.

Mine's still sealed in the box. Had to get it with the forced WM bundle. Not sure when or if it'll ever get opened.

Don't get me wrong, the controller's amazing and all its just that there isn't much use for it right now particularly if you're playing mostly single player...

I have been looking for a hori screen protector too. I just don't want to spend $18 for one on Amazon.

Well I have it a shot, I think it's pretty neat but there isn't anything about the WiiU that makes it worth the $350 price tag. I'm going to return mine later this week.

I'm thinking its more related to me playing fewer games than I used to, I was hoping this would excite me more but in the month I've owned it I've only played it 5 times.

I still use mine frequently to check out the miiverse and such for fun, don't have many games yet so not using it much for that, kinda expected to happen at launch at least, I know in a few months when Monster Hunter hits it will quickly become my most played system for a while, so mainly just waiting out for that to launch.
