I finally got my Wii U about 2 weeks ago. NSMBU is fun enough, especially considering how uninspired the "New" Super Mario games are overall. However, ZombiU is straight-up fantastic. If you go in expecting Resident Evil-style action (like that poor reviewer at GameSpot apparently was), you may be disappointed, but as a real survival game it's wonderful. Plus you can get it dirt cheap on Amazon.

nsnbu.... that was my default purchase when i got my system just over a year ago. had no clue what else to get. at first was a little disappointed. i was expecting sometng more like 3d world. but, i eventually started to enjoy it more, especially with off line play while watching a baseball game.

I have to recommend Trine 2, to anyone who's not yet played it. It's a great puzzle platformer. It can be a challenge too, apparently so much so people think there are glitches barring them from finishing it but I managed to finish all 20 levels. I even got a fancy "Yeah!" on my Miiverse post from the developer's account about it. Go me lol It's cross platform I believe with just the PS3, but the gamepad actually really helps the Wizard's abilities in making it easier to control, I imagine making it significantly less frustrating than having to use the stick. And it's on sale in the eShop this week!

regarding the mario kart 8 free game: should I get Sonic Lost World or NSMBU? That's the only choice I have (have pikmin etc.) When it comes to games:

  • I usually hate mario 2d platformers cause they're too difficult for me xD (but maybe this one is easier?)
  • I like space to explore
  • I think the music is very important
  • My friends don't play video games so multiplayer is not an asset
  • I don't care about online
  • I thought the sonic lost world demo was so-so/very average

Which one should I get? Please help, I just can't make up my mind, I've read every review out there and watched gameplay movies etc.. :(

To me, NSBMU is the better game, the level design is actually really good. Although I don't like the music that much, the overall experience was way better for me.

I recently picked up NSMBU. If it wasn't for the fact that the price was so ridiculously low, I don't know when I would've bought it. Looked too much like NSMBWii. That said, the game is lots of fun but I was surprised at the difficulty level of some of the earlier stages.

Bottomline: I'm glad I picked it up sooner rather than later. The Sonic game never impressed me, so it's an easy choice for me if I had to choose between these 2 games.

Not a game but for anyone looking for an extra controller I'd recommend the Gioteck GC-2 pad. I got one for £14.99 from GAME yesterday and it's excellent. It functions as a Pro Controller for Wii U and a Classic Controller for Wii. It has a switch on the back to change between the two.

I've tested it with COD:BLOPS II and Super Luigi U as a Pro, and then with SM64 on Wii Channel VC. Best thing about the Wii function is it doesn't have to be attached to a Remote. You have to make sure it's set as Remote 1 before going into the Wii Channel which is a slight inconvenience but it does work.

The pad itself is lovely. Has a shiny front but the back is a different non-slip plastic and allows a good grip. Very nice fit in the hand. Good analogue sticks too, feels a lot like a 360 pad.

For the price I really can't recommend it highly enough. HOWEVER, make sure you get the right one. There was an early edition that doesn't have the Wii Classic Controller compatibility. The one I bought had a shiny sticker on the front that says 'compatible with WII U PRO & WII CLASSIC swap consoles with the unique mode switch'. If the one you see doesn't have this sticker it's not the same thing.

electrolite77: And the Amazon & Very links in your post don't have that sticker either? I'll keep my eyes open for that - I don't like the hassle with the corded controllers on Wii mode, so maybe this'll get me interested enough to start playing Xenoblade and whatever other classic controller -controllable games I have for the system.

No they don't, I was just posting them for info really. Judging by the comments on the Very link some people have got the right one. If you see one in the wild or on a website who have a solid record with returns it's well worth it.

Theres a bit more info on the two versions here..... http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/gioteck-gc-2-wireless-wii-u-p...

I've decided not to get Rayman Legends, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Pacman & the Ghostly Adventures OR Resident Evil Revelations. I think i'd rather keep that experience left in the 3DS mother brain-memory bank, if you catch my donatello drift. ;) I would go absotootly' INsane having to revisit the depressing lifeless sh***y Shooter 'filler' junk that soaked up half the bloody experience.

For what it's worth, I'm not the greatest 2d platform gamer myself and I'm having a blast with it. A good game will always have you come back for more, even when it's as tough as nails. Hope you enjoy your choice. All the best. :)

I will let you know this time next week. Famitsu gave it all 9's (And they are normally right or at least don't penalise anything with a bit of practice required).

I think Sonic Lost World is the best game I have on my Wii U currently. (Out of Mario Kart 8 / NSMBU / Sonic Lost World).

I could play it pretty much straight away as well. (The same couldn't be said for Generations where I needed to spend about 10 hrs getting to grips with it properly in order to get the most enjoyable time out of it).

There is no boost which is a bit annoying though. The difficulty is still just normal as well like something like Sonic Adventure 2 was.
