So if I get a game code off of Club Nintendo can I now put it in the Wii U eShop and get coins?

If that code is for Wii U. If it is a Wii game you still have to go through the Wii Shop

Any one else notice that you can play SNES games with just a Wiimote? I didn't catch that until today.

Anyone else experienced serious lagging while playing on the gamepad?

Well I'd argue F-Zero is the worst case scenario for the GamePad and that works alright. It's really fast moving, requires quick reactions and often has content that's basically white noise. Worst you get is some serious compression when driving past "gravel" areas....... which is to be expected. The gamepad will look average well before it will lag.

Zero lag from what I've seen unless you walk a fair distance from the Wii U which you shouldn't be doing anyway. It's wireless on 5Ghz not magic ;)

sigh Alright, it's not that many coins anyway.
But now I can transfer that game to the Wii U menu right? Or would I still need to pay the $1/$1.50?

@Retro
If you own a game from the Wii VC, the price is $1/$1.50 to get the Wii U version. If not, then you pay full price.

In Europe, we can play SNES games in 60 Hz on Wii U's Virtual Console! I've already tested Super Mario World! ;)

How does that work? There aren't enough buttons.

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?
