ElMastero commented on Rayman Legends No Longer a Wii U Exclusive, De...:

I'm really considering waiting a week after launch so I can buy the game Used at my local Best Buy. This way Ubisoft doesn't get a penny from me. But then if their game doesn't sell well on the Wii U they may decide to not develop games for it. So it's like a catch 22.

ElMastero commented on Nintendo Says The Play Limit On Demos Is Set B...:

I have yet to play a single demo on PSN with a limit. And that's how it should be. These limits are idiotic. I download a ton of stuff off PSN (demos, games, costumes, patches, etc.) but I think I'm just gonna stay out of the eshop altogether. Not only because of the limits but also because of the consoles miniscule hard drive. I'll stick to just watching reviews on youtube to get a sense of whether a game is any good and if it is, I'll buy the physical copy from an actual store.

ElMastero commented on Wii U And 3DS Firmware Updates Go Live:

The Wii U is a X-Mas gift for the family. I had wifi issues after installing the first update, which I hopefully fixed by putting the settings in manually (with the help of a great Nintendo Rep). So I haven't played any games on it. Which means I have yet to experience any freezing issues. So I hope that by installing this latest update, the Wii U will be problem free just in time for X-Mas.

ElMastero commented on You Can Use PlayStation 2 Pads On Your Wii U, ...:

For a second I thought the title said you could use the wireless PS3 controller on the Wii U. Now that would have been something. Plugging a PS2 controller into a Wii Remote sounds like too many wires and peripherals dragging on the floor. Meh!

ElMastero commented on Hardware Review: Wii U:

I had wifi problems as well. I bought the Wii U as an X-Mas gift for the kids. I heard about the long firmware update and decided to get the console ready to go for X-Mas. I configured the wifi, easy enough and ran the update. An hour or so later I came back and decided to set up Netflix & Hulu Plus. I have subscriptions to both. Unfortunately I needed to update the software of each, including youtube. But each time I'd get booted off the net. So each time I had to configure wifi get connected and update the software. I'd get booted, i'd configure the wifi again and then proceed to update the next software. Rinse and repeat. I assumed it had something to do with the distance of the console to the wifi adapter. But I never had problems using a smart bluray player in the same location. So I think I'll definitely use the fix that is provided in the review above because I have a feeling when I next turn on the console (on X-Mas morning) I'll be booted off the net again.

ElMastero commented on Molyneux: Wii U Is Good, But It's Not Great:

I thought the Wii U's Gamepad was gimmicky and probably a bad idea. I thought the system wasn't all that powerful for a next gen console. & after not having owned a Nintendo console since SNES I bought one. Why? Because I wanted to play some Mario and Donkey Kong country games and I hadn't owned the original Wii. So backwards compatibility takes care of the old games and I can pick up all the great new one's as they're released. At the end of the day those first party games will draw people in as much as, if not more than, the 3rd party games. Plus, the basic console is $300. That's pretty cheap. I'll probably pick up the the next Playstation console but at a more affordable price because I'm sure it'll launch at $500-$600. By then I should have a considerable library of great Wii & Wii U games.

ElMastero commented on Guide: Getting Started With Your Wii U:

Connecting to the internet was a cinch. Staying connected was the problem. I had to enter in the info a half dozen times after every single update (firmware, hulu plus, netflix, youtube). Each time I got disconnected. It turns out that that the problem is quite widespread. The solution entails manually entering all of your wifi info rather than having the console do it automatically.

ElMastero commented on Donkey Kong Country Trilogy To Be Pulled From ...:

Funny how they pulled it off the Wii Virtual Console right before the Wii U was released here in the U.S (11/18/12). I was actually planning on buying the trilogy for the Wii U. So I hope they're bringing it back in some form or another. An HD/3D makover and/or GamePad support would be nice.

ElMastero commented on Nintendo Has No New Wii Games In The Pipeline:

I have the PS3, I haven't owned a Nintendo console since SNES. I almost bought a Wii so that my kids and I could mostly play all of the great games (aka Mario games) in their catalog. But then the Wii U was coming out and I figured the Wii U would have a longer shelf life. So now we can get all of the cool Wii games now and all of the cool Wii U games as they come out. It's a win win situation.
