Played a bit with the ZombiU demo. It was clearly designed to be used with your fingers and doesn't work if you have to fiddle around with the stylus. On the other hand, I had absolutely no problems playing with my fingers. :shrug:

Very nice interface, I thought, but the graphics look a bit dated. I only played a little bit and will try again at a later date, but I'm not really convinced by what I've seen so far.

I tried the Wonderful 101 demo, and was presented with the Gamepad's vibration feature for the first time. They basically just stuck a mobile phone vibration unit in there. Useful for haptic feedback, but games really shouldn't attempt to use it for rumble, because that is very, very poor.

It's had a Zelda release though, in the form of Wind Waker. And it's going to get another in the new year with Twilight Princess. Ports or remasters or whatever but it's still Zeldas. Or Zeldi.


if it would be Zeldo (male), it would be Zeldi,

Zelda plural would be Zelde (in italian) or Zeldae (in latin)

Doesn't appear you did, no. I've sent a new one, just in case.

I'm totally up for some Mario karting next Monday!

Look like serious progress has been make with Wii U hacking. Appears as though people have gained Kernel access, so hopefully there will soon be a lot of fun things you can do with your Wii U once you have hacked it.

What 'fun things' will it do that it can't do now?

Mine plays Nintendo games which is all I got it for really.

"Run unsigned code" would be a good catch all term I guess.

Once people make apps to do this sort of stuff, you'll be able to rip your discs to an external hard drive/SD card and load them from that (there is basic backup support via existing hacks).

There can be emulators made using the full system resources, not running in the Wii BC mode, so they'll have improved performance and such. This also means emulators will be playable with the Gamepad. It's likely that people will be able to inject other roms into the official VC emulators, too.

Possibly getting Gamecube games playable on the Gamepad. Maybe making Wii games that are not compatible with the Gamepad work too.

Who knows what else really. It'll be a matter of what the community come up with.

You can make a Nintendo Account now. Using your NNID as a log-in if you have one. Yes, a 'proper' account system, or at least the first step to one - there must be a catch in there somewhere, seeing as this is Nintendo.

Bloody WiiU updates are worse than PS updates. I only want to play Pikmin and I've had 3 updates each requiring me to press "OK" before and after the update. I'd wandered upstairs hoping it's sort it self out and came back and it was just waiting for me to click OK. Bloody thing.

Pikmin 3 is bloody lovely. I skipped Pikmin 2, for some reason, despite really enjoying Pikmin uno. So far Pikmin 3 has been a little slow and simple going but it still retains that awesome mechanic where you lose all your Pikmin outside the onion when night falls. You get a slow 10 count and I've found myself shouting at the little twats to get a move on or I'll fuck off without them. It's surprisingly exciting stuff. Well, if excitement was taking place in a big bowl of treacle. It hasn't really moved on much since Pikmin, mind, from what I've played.

Bit disappointing how little the environments in this paper mario look like they are made of paper.

Spoiled by Tearaway.

QUIESTION, I see that smash bros is almost half price now... it's very big though.. is there a way to expand the harddrive with a usb stick, instead of getting a whole 1TB hard rive for it for 40quid (which i never will fill i presume)

Yes. I have a 32Gb USB stick in the back of mine which works fine.

Nintendo advise against pen drives because they're not really designed for long term constant read/write, and there's a reasonably chance of data corruption.

I think they are probably being overcautious.

I've got a 128GB that I've used for about a year, no issues as of yet.

The real question is why on earth can't you use the SD card slot.

Don't start on that. I bought a 64GB SD card to use as storage, then I find out after you can only use it for Wii saves. :S

But if you take that same SD card and put it in a USB adapter, it's magically allowed.

Only two first-party games left for the Wii-U, only one of which is really of interest to me. (Zelda, of course.)

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016- ... -u-and-3ds

Admittedly my Wii-U isn't really getting much use these days and hasn't for a while, but nonetheless my overall feelings towards the console are very positive. Maybe I just like the plucky underdogs which don't do as well as they deserve. See also, Dreamcast.
