Thanks op. I have a pre-order in with gamestop that I was going to cancel, but two 1st party games for $60 is a pretty good deal.

Man they are really pushing Mario Kart 8 for some reason. Are the preorder numbers that bad for the game? Or are they hoping to inflate the preorders to make it look like games can still sell really well on the WiiU? Still not enough to get me to buy it yet but that's primarily because I don't like to preorder games I may never get around to playing. Mario Kart hasn't been good since it went 3D.

They are trying to move consoles....

 

Obviously this offer for another free game is really nice

So, do they ship you the little gamepad holder/stand that comes in the box?  You need it to keep the pad level for the table top games, but I am sure you could prop it up on a book or something.

The selection completely blows compared to what Europe is getting, I really don't get why NoA continually feels the need to give us the shaft like this.  And it's not like these 4 games haven't been on sale before.... I guess I'm just bitter cause there are several games on the EU list that I don't have and would actually be interested in getting, but it doesn't change the ridiculousness of the situation.

 

I already own Pikmin 3/NSMBU and couldn't care less about Wii Party U or WWHD.  But free is free, so I guess I might as well take WWHD.  I might get around to playing it someday I suppose, the hard mode must be worth checking out right?  


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

i only ordered the game so not sure what you're talking about. i got $38 in points for preordering it, which will go towards smash broooos yahooooo itsa mea mario u lika anoos

Wii Party U comes with some stupid little plastic stand they claim is necessary to play the game.  Since I got bored with it after half an hour and haven't tried it since I don't really know how essential it is, but from my little demo I'd guess it's only a minor convenience at best.

This is cool, but kind of a slap in the face to those like me who are diehard Nintendo fans and therefore have already bought these games when they were new, back when Nintendo needed the support even more. But no, go and reward the customers that don't buy your games.

I feel early adopters need their own gift. A $20 eshop credit would even suffice.

And no one can bash this expectation because they recognized the importance of early adopters when they dropped they price of 3ds but gave tons of exclusive gba and nes games to those of us early adopters. This just teaches me not to buy earlier; exactly what PS Plus makes me do.

Best Buy deals have really gone downhill ever since lowering GCU price to $30

XBL deals are absolutely shit compared to PSN, but even those have been sucking

DELL is absolutely the worst online retailer for video games. Avoid them at all costs.

Aw, what's wrong...does an internet opinion about video games disagree with yours? Cry more.

I hate to break it to you but it's already been on sale.  I paid $35 for it myself months ago.  And if you are into that GCU nonsense apparently it's $25 at Best Buy right now.

Huh? Others who are getting these games are essentially getting $60. I was making a point that even if us early adopters got 1/3 of that, I'd be happy. I was speaking theoretically. #usinghashtags #wherehashtagsarentused #makesyoulookretarded

Hell no, I wouldn't pay over $10 for that game rofl.  But the only other friend I have with a WiiU is a massive diehard Nintendo fanboy, so naturally he had it preordered.  I really didn't find it fun, certainly not compared to the other 3 titles you can choose from.  While I didn't try everything, it really didn't grab you the way something like NintendoLand, or even Wii Sports Resort/Wii Play could.

I'd be happy if they just widened their selection of games.  Even if you already owned all 10 of the games EU is giving away for free, it would at least be a minor convenience to have something like Monster Hunter on the console at all times (if you are into that sort of thing).

 

Maybe you can sell your code?  Knowing Nintendo there's no way the game will automatically link with your NNID so you can probably score $20 off ebay.
