VC games only work with classic controller on the Wii U?


http://en.wikipedia....Console#Control

This chart still applies for Wii Mode VC on Wii U, save for the Gamecube controller option.

Games released for the Wii U Virtual Console appear to universally support the Gamepad for off-tv play and the Wii U Pro Controller.

Anyone recommend Metal Torrent? Tempted, mainly cuz I haven't really wanted most of the recent offers...

Also really wish 3DS had an N64 VC. Paper Mario is fantastic, but already have it for WiiVC.

Most likely no CAGs have bought it. Seems like a mixed reaction here:

I'll probably get Paper Mario and then wait for the Wii U upgrade program for N64 games before playing it. Hopefully Club Nintendo starts adding real 3DS and Wii U games to the freebies at some point.

Metal Torrent is very short. It'll take you about 20 minutes to beat the game. The two modes are Easy, which is very, very easy, and Insane, which is pretty hard. Over all, though, not much content.

Also, Birds & Beans is a very short and pointless game according to reviews. You can see in the video that it has two levels, and what's shown is all you have to do. Not appealing in the slightest. I don't know how some of these games get published...

It never crossed my mind until I saw it on another site, but perhaps the Luigi hat Iwata is wearing in the Nintendo Direct video is this year's Platinum prize. It makes sense with this year being the Year of Luigi.

I2B's up for:
Lego City Stories
Luigi's Mansion
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

All are for both retail and downloadable versions. Honestly surprised there's no Monster Hunter I2B (yet?).

I registered Fire Emblem for 3DS and got 60 coins. Is it 40 for the game, 10 for intend to buy, and 10 for registering within the first 30 days? Then I'll get another 10 with the post play survey?

Crap - thanks for reminding me that I am 3 days too late to get the extra 10 coins... I guess I might as well wait till next Club year then at least.

Actually it said until March 6th but I technically registered today (the 7th) and it appears that I got the full coins. That's why I was asking.

Yeah, they have to allow enough time to get Hawaii residents in on those dead-line promotions, and even then they give a buffer beyond that.

I'm tempted by Super Punch Out and Mario Tennis. I want those games, and part of me wants to save the coins for something worthwhile, but they rarely have anything I want to spend the coins on anyway other than the 3DS game case which I got 2 of. I'm just waiting for a new Mario Tennis game on Wii U too.

3D Classics Kid Icarus is fun enough if you have extra coins.

Does any one think that Nintendo 3DS case that holds 18 cartridges will be back up soon? I have one but it's soaked in water because I left a water bottle open :<

I just linked my Club Nintendo account to my Wii and it did not give me any points. I have Chrono Trigger that I paid for and Mario Tennis that I used Club Nintendo to get. I can't find any information on the internet re what VC games give points. I read no VC games placed on the store before 2008 get points, but Chrono was put on the store May 16 2011.

The only game I was able to get a post play survey for that I downloaded before linking my account was the WiiWare Game Bubble Bobble Plus!. All my VC titles beforehand did not get a post play survey retroactively, but for some reason the WiiWare title did get one, after I had Nintendo add the registered titles to my CN account.

Since linking my account, every game I've downloaded has been eligible for the post-play survey. I don't think that every game does qualify, I just happen to be downloading the first party developed / published Nintendo titles. I would send an email to Nintendo to see if Chrono Trigger is eligible, and see if they add it to your registered game list. That is what I did for all my titles, and got the post-play survey a week later for Bubble Bobble.

Oh, I just noticed this today on my CN page, there is a Facebook Quiz to enter yourself in a drawing for one of 10 $50 pre-paid Nintendo cards for Wii U or 3DS eShop platforms.

Nintendo sure does a bad job at advertising, been up for a week and I haven't seen anyone else mention it...

I'll contact Nintendo, thanks. I'm only 80 points from Platinum so any points help at this point.
