I've been playing for a couple of hours now. Only on day 8... what a great game! The usual incredible amount of polish all-round that only, in my opinion, Nintendo can deliver. A complete delight to play, although it can get pretty stressful commanding all your Pikmin around

There's a lot to enjoy in this game.

This guy does Perplexing Pool in ONE DAY! Insane multitasking skills!
Just imagine how efficiently you can complete tasks with THREE captains! And since you can set waypoints for each captain with the gamepad, your strategy can get CRAZY in-depth. When I get the game I'm going to study possible strategies as if they were college classes..I'M SO EXCITED

He used that stone-weight glitch-thing though, right? I don't see any other way he would already have blue Pikmin, and otherwise it's not possible in one day. Still pretty awesome though, that's for sure.

I would have never guessed Weezing was so useful until I played a HeartGold Nuzlocke!

My almost-4 year old son rang me at work today to tell me excitedly "Daddy, your new game is here, and I can play it too!" (Yes, I've trained him to recognise PEGI age ratings - he knows he's allowed to play games with a big green '3' in the corner )

As soon as I got home he wanted to play it with me, together we played the first day and started the second, and he spent all of tea-time telling my wife (who isn't remotely interested in games) in great detail exactly what happened: "And then mummy, we lost one of the Pikmin! But then we went out of the cave and we found him again, and then we went up in our spaceship, and the Pikmin went up in their onion, and then we found the pink lady..."

Now he's pestering for when he can play it again

Daww! Smotheringly adorable kid you got there. My 2 year old niece knows what Pikmin is too and loves to watch me play it.

This is the main reason i went for the 'U . However the boy is only 1 and a half. Still, he likes trying to scratch the gamepad screen. The wife also hates gaming too - though showed a mild interest in mario chase and luigis mansion.

Good to see that the Pikmin excite the kids

Darn! I didn't get my copy today, and yet I pre-ordered it on Monday. The e-mail told me they we're ready to send it YESTERDAY! Come on, does it take 4 days just to get it ready? Man, this makes me sad and now I can't play it over the weekend.

Pre-ordered this game yesterday on Amazon. I can't wait to put my Wii U to good use again!

While I wait I'm going to start another run of Pikmin 2 (already did one for Pikmin last week) to prepare myself for what's to come.

I'm getting the retail because of collection purposes. I just love seeing all my games on my shelves.

I could probably get a case and print the artwork off and have it there for decorative purposes! Got my 500GB hard drive to set up on my Wii U so space with the digital copy wouldnt be an issue specially if i want to get the Wonderful 101 too from the offer that Nintendo are currently doing. (30% off when buying Pikmin 3)

Just finished the main story 100%...took 17:10.
My thoughts-

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS

Excellent Presentation, Sound and Overall game-play

Story was shorter then I hoped with only 66 fruits compared to Pikmin 2's 200 treasures and also was easier then its predecessors but bosses were significantly harder in my opinion.

New Pikmin types were used much better then Purple and Whites and felt unique and useful.

SPOILERS ARE OVER

If anyone has any questions about the game feel free to ask.
P.s finished with exactly 666 dead...how weird.

@MetroidSlayer NO SPOILERS DAMNIT! (The fact that there's XX fruits is kind of a spoiler, I think.)
I'm fine with people telling their opinions after they've beaten the game, but please no spoilers.

Absoulutly Gorgeous looking game, most impressive graphics on Wii U yet.
I have to say it reminds of that tech demo that Nintendo showed at an E3 a while back of the bird flying

Wow, I so love this game! (I won't spoil anything, so don't worry) It's my first Pikmin game (yes, I know, weird huh?) so I'm still trying to get used to the style. But I really enjoy it; very addictive! (<--is that even a word?) Now I got a whole weekend free from work, so I suppose it'll be a lot of gaming from me these couple of days;)

Me too! I was going to play the Wii version but I realized I left it at my friend's house so I started playing the Gamecube version. I'm also going to try to beat all of my old challenge mode scores!

Are you saying that Purples and Whites weren't unique and useful?!
I value my Purples and Whites so much since they're much harder to populate than other Pikmin types..in Pikmin 3 I can see myself being much more reckless since I can just get my Pikmin back with pellets

Welp, just finished day 2 this morning. Enjoyable so far. It reminds me of playing in my garden as a kid and being knee deep in mud looking for bugs and worms (I was a messy kid)..

@PloXyZeRO
I personally did not think Purples were very unique the fact that they were Strong were not used very much and generally unbalanced the boss/enemy fights , however I can see your point about them, I was very wasteful in Pikmin 3 compared to 2.

@Kewlan
I do apologize for saying that spoiler! I wouldn't have even thought at the time that the number of fruits would be a spoiler
