    Default The Nintendo WiiU Thread

    Might as well start this one, too.

    I know Suavness has one, maybe Shade, too.

    As I said in the other thread, I am very curious about it.

    Thoughts?

    I'm liking it so far. I was concerned about the control pad but it's surprisingly comfortable. Need more games than Just Mario U to fully critique it, though.

    Does it come with component HD cables or just like HDMI?

    I'm hearing mixed reviews on it, but I mean it just did come out. Heard the online is still kind of blah.

    Just HDMI.

    I haven't done any online gaming yet.

    One other thing to note, if you get one: there is a huge firmware update required before you can use the system. It took about two hours total for me, so don't plan on being able to play it immediately out of the box. I still can't believe that Nintendo did that.

    Well damn. My HDTV is an older one, from when I was 16. Pretty sure it doesn't have HDMI.

    Yeah, I heard about that update, if you unplug your system or turn it off, it can potentially brick the system. A lot of people have been having trouble with that.

    I think all HDTVs have at least one HDMI port. The nearly 7-year old TV I gave my parents has one.

    Well, I got an Olevia brand back in April of 2006, I'm pretty sure it doesn't have HDMI. But I can probably get component cables, I just didn't want to have to get them. Hell, I don't even know if I'll be buying a WiiU anytime soon.

    They were sold out at Wal-Mart last night when we looked for a kiosk to play it at, which they didn't have.

    New ones do but not all.

    Haha oops I answered a bunch of questions in the other thread. But yeah the first update took forever, wasn't too thrilled about that.

    The gamepad itself plays really nicely. It's responsive, very clear graphics, easy to maneuver around. I love that I can control the tv with it, and I love that I can play games on it while watching the tv. Or watch tv while searching the internet. It's pretty smooth.

    I've only bought Nintendoland (which came with my deluxe version...and btw, only buy this version, it's worth the extra 50) and NSMBU. Both games are quite fun.

    I have plans to buy AC3 and Batman: Arkham City eventually. Kinda on a backlog of games at the moment.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    That's good to know. I'll have to unbox and update before Christmas morning.

    Unbox it and update it, then carefully put it back the way it was. Unwrapping a new video game console is the best thing ever for kids on Christmas.

    BTW, Nintendoland is surprisingly a deep game. I've spent a ton of hours into it and I'm not even close to completing it. Pretty fun stuff.

    I haven't really had the time to get into Nintendoland yet.
