I picked one up from a friend about 2005, and I really enjoyed it. Had a few games but the two that stuck out that I had were SF Rush 2049 and Headhunter. On the face of it it still seems strange looking back that it failed. I still have it and rack it out every now and again... Come to think of it... ;)

Thank you for sharing your insights Andy into this experience. Its made me re evaluate some restrictions on games with my children. They are some games naturally I would stop them from playing but having recently got into MHU3 I thought this weekend I would try by 8 year old boy on MHU3, Early signs are good. He played through some of the early tutorials on the Wii U and we are next planning a co-op effort between Wii U and 3DS. Again thanks for sharing.

Well the bizarre thing is while I bought an Ambassador 3DS, I haven't bought Majoras Mask but I still got sent the Skull Kid statue. Havd't got a clue why I was sent it until I googled and found this promotion reported.

I love it. We as a family love it. I wish there were more games but the ones we have we all love and seeing Mario in full HD is a sight to behold. You can play games on the Wii U that other consoles can only dream about (I am not getting into a PS4 XB1 debate here). My one complaint is the VC or lack of it. There is an abundance of games that could be brought out on it from all the previous consoles, and that would be a huge reason for some people to buy it. The fact that even after 2 years there are VC games that were on the Wii that still have not appeared on the Wii U is frankly beyond me. Missed opportunity totally. But I wouldn't give up my Wii U thats for sure. Its the first console we have played as a family and I know already Nintendo is forming a part of my childrens memories like it did me 25 years ago...



Blue_Rover commented on Preview: Using amiibo with Super Smash Bros. f...:

I was excited about these when they first came out but disappointed when it was announced they wouldn't be players in Smash you could control. I'm just not sure of the point is to spend £10 on a figure you can level up to fight against or fight with but not fight as. Nintendo really need to market these better and make it clear what the compatibility is other wise they could be a disappointment. The possibilities are mouth watering but so far it feels underwhelming. These need to have compatibility with more than Smash on day one but there has been nothing on Hyrule Warriors or MK8 only a mention they might be compatible with these games.

Never played this. Just baffles me echoing other comments, why more formats and games are not on VC? Even the HD upgrades of what was available on the Wii (and are playable on the Wii U) have not been forthcoming. Nintendo are missing such a huge trick with this, but then I seem to remember this was the same complaint/observation with VC on the Wii.
