Urghhh. I hate Wii mode, and I hate the Wii Shop Channel, and I hate entering my credit card info. I hate it all. Why Nintendo couldn't just port the entire VC and all its stuff to the Wii U on day one, I have no idea. Great business sense. I know there's a lot of crap on there, but there's also a lot of Turbo CD games I still want to buy. So I have to boot into Wii mode, fiddle around on the shop channel using the fucking classic controller attached to my stupid dildo wiimote....
Not to mention the batteries in my Wiimote will ALWAYS be long-dead (what the hell is it using batteries for when it's not on?). It is just such a freaking hassle all around that it kind of makes me wonder why I even bother.
It's because the emulation of those games is vastly different on the Wii U than it is on the Wii, what with using the gamepad and off-tv play, as well as Miiverse and posting screenshots to social media.
That and you have licenses tied to different companies for the 2nd and 3rd party stuff, where it's likely the agreements for being on the Wii Virtual Console only cover the Wii and would require updating to include the Wii U. Plus you have some companies that have zero plans to port them over to the Wii U VC, like SEGA and their games.
