Charming is the pefect word. This system has personality!

It's no wonder, that the Wii U software director is the same director for the Animal Crossing games. Everything from the music to the visuals, even in the menus, is full of charm.

Agreed. I love the OS, menus, Miiverse, and little touches throughout. I have no complaints (haven't seen a crash yet either, so I guess I'm just fortunate).

I like to just watch people's comments and drawings pop up on the main menu in the Wara Wara Plaza. I'm enjoying Miiverse much more than I originally thought. This console has a element of fun and community to it that no Nintendo console has had before.

My Wii U just arrived! I'm so excited!

I foresee what you'll do there.

@True_Hero: Awesome, have fun!

Alright, dumb question I know, but how do I do the drawings that pop up in the Plaza? I have spent much time with my Wii U despite having it since Monday.

This tin Case I think it might of been a FutureShop/BestBuy Online 'Preorder exclusive.

And i managed to find a 60" S34 2011 Panasonic 1080p Plasma in my area. It went for $1500 and I'm getting it for $850 in a few days. It's rocking 1 frame/16ms of lag when gaming, so I'm a happy Brewster. The only downside is that it's not 3D. And for me that's a real Bummer. Oh well, i could always upgrade whenever the 2013 Panny's come out down the line IF the input lag is lower than their dissapointing 2012 Plasma lineup. But for now I'm pretty psyched considering i lucked out and found one of these at the last minute before the Launch of the WiiU(which i still haven't unboxed btw), plus it's 60"

Wish I knew about that tin, it is pretty slick. Glad to hear you got a mega HD TV. I guess those 3D fishies will be staying at my house for a little longer.

With my 1.5 or so MB per second internet speed it might update in 3 hours.
Ah well, I can wait a few additional hours, I've been waiting for like.. What, +2 years now?

Actually it's only a 1GB download apparently. People are reporting that it's taking about an hour and the average internet speed is around 9Mbps. So there are two possible ways to look at this.

If it's downloading it at full speed and then that means you're waiting for the console to verify stuffs so about 45mins of that hour doesn't involve downloading. In that case you'll be waiting for about 2hours 15mins on your what I'm going to assume is 1.5Mbps (not "1.5MB") 'nets. If however the server was loaded at the time and people were limited to ~2.2Mbps as a result it means you'd only have to wait 1hour 30mins.... while everyone is by then only waiting 15mins.

Uh, didn't I say "1.5 or so MB per second?"
I did assume I would only 'get' about 1 mbps so I wasn't too far off, and for some reason my internet seems to go slower than that actually, even when nobody is using it...
@WaveBoy Man, thats awsome.

Yeah, the Tin case is alright. But it looks like bland minimalistic s*** thanks to the boring white background compared to the actual NSMB.U Box Art which has a lot more going and is far more exciting. But it was free, so i can't complain.

My harddrive refuses to run games, because it isn't getting enough power... Note to everyone, buy one with its own power plug like Iwata said!

Its the little things about Nintendo that make them so magical.

I've really enjoyed the menu music on the 3DS, but this Wii U music is just wonderful! These are both from the Mii Maker.

Ya know what i'm annoyed about? the fact that we here in Australasia won't get any streaming services for neither the Wii U or the 3DS. I've emailed this company, ironically called QuickFlix, about bringing their streaming service to both devices, since they already have it for PS3 and 360, haven't heard back yet but I'm sure the answer wil be no.
I'm just annoyed because i'm paying literally the same amount of dosh, but we aren't getting these extra services because they aren't available here and that sucks. I'm hoping we at least get Youtube, but even that's unlikely.
