I only see GC 4.0 happening if I become a English major. Yeah... not happening.

I just found out that all of the Mii data on my Wii U will be replaced by the Miis on my original Wii. However, I just spent the last 20 hours (or so) playing NintendoLand and racking up on stamps and high scores. Is there any possible way to save this data so that I can still have all of my stamps and stars and prizes and what not after the Wii-to-Wii U transfer? I have a feeling I know the answer, it's just not the answer I want =/ hahah

If we talk and have fun here on NL, feel free to add me!! (Just let me know so I can accept)

Question: How do you make friends on the Wii U?
Answer: Go to Miiverse, either search for or meet a new person through the communities, then select friend request.

I already did the transfer, and my Miis on the original Wii didn't replace any of my current Miis on the Wii U.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

Here's my question: Is there a way to make it so I can access M rated content on the eShop? It won't let me since I put my real birth date when I set up my NN ID.

Question: Which Wii U system should I buy? The Basic or the Deluxe?
Answer: It is all up to you, if you will be downloading many games than the Deluxe no question. If you are more casual and will only be playing a couple of games than the Basic is your best choice. Also if you will be using the Wii U mostly for it's apps then I would also recommend the Basic.

But if you don't want a WiiU just buy a VITA instead of a PS360.

Hey guys! I'm planning on getting a Wii U soon but I was wondering a few things about the memory. On the Basic set, how much memory is taken up by the OS and the accounts? How much memory is left for you to use? Also, could any of you guys who own ZombiU, Assassin's Creed 3, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II tell me how much space each save data takes up? Thanks in advance for any help!

BLOPS2 - 88 meg
AC 3 - 65 meg
ZombiU - 25 meg

I have a 2TB HDD so it doesn't really matter for me but it just shows that a HDD is recommended in the long haul bro... I downloaded Sonic Racing Transformed and it was 5.5 gig ;)

I bought a basic unit and I don't plan on playing only a couple of games or only using apps. I didn't need internal storage because I have a hard drive and I didn't want any disc-based software or another sensor bar; besides the Deluxe was harder to get ahold of last-minute.

I think this thread will be unlikely to succeed since I see multiple threads being created for basic queries about Mii transfer and Wii transfer and other things you could find with a simple search of the forum...

Question: What would be a good launch game for my children?
Answer: (personal opinion) Mario U, Scribblenauts or Nintendoland are great for any age group.
