Topic: Wii U Got Nicked - Unexpected benefits of a Unpopular System

Posts 1 to 5 of 5


(1) The Crim only nicked the gamepad. So, I lost my gamepad, but kept my mild amount of digital files (about 6 Virtual Consoles, about 4 retail downloads) as I still have the other part. Clearly the crime didn't know what he was grabbing.

Sucker! He won't get much for a gamepad.

However, also

(2) Insurance paid out a reasonable sum of money for my 7 missing games. So, I clearly need to replace 3D World, Kart 8, and perhaps Wonderful 101 with the same games, but I can afford to replace the following with something new:

Old games: Deux Ex (Barely touched), Arkham Armoured Edition (Barely touched) Fifa 13 (played a mild amount) and BLOPS 2 (completed & played till I got bored on multiplayer)

I can potentially replace the above, with the following:

Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze
Pikmin 3
Lego City Undercover
AC4: Black Flag.

Not a bad effort eh. Though Bayonetta is an option. Smash unfortunately isn't, I am not into fighting games and don't know enough mates keen to play multiplayer…Toad might be an option for later.

So, not a bad result outcome considering some prick tried to nick the system. What do you all think?



Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and Pikmin 3 are very good games in my opinion and have lots of replay value. I have been told lots of good things about Lego City Undercover but have no personal experience with it yet so can't comment. As for Black Flag I haven't played it, not my thing I would personally save your money for Captain Toad it looks pretty good.

Although things may seemed to have worked out for you I am sorry you were burgled. Best wishes for the future and I hope you enjoy whatever games you decide to get.

Kind Regards,

I'm very sorry to hear about that.

I liked AC: Black Flag a lot more than I thought I would. It's a good adventure title and probably one of the best AC games (but it's really more of a pirate game than an AC game, which is a good thing). You can find it fairly cheaply now as well.
Pikmin 3 is fun and has a lot of replay value, but it's on the shorter side.
DKC TF is like a more creative version of DKCR. It's more of the same, but I liked the level design a lot more in Tropical Freeze.
Bayonetta is awesome but it's certainly not for everybody (you're also getting two games for the price of one on the first print edition).
I haven't played Lego City, but I've only heard good things about it.



Maybe instead of getting new games you should invest in a home security system?
