@GreatPlayer I agree that Sonic Transformed has more content simply due to World Tour mode, was hoping that Mario Kart would someday return to Mission Mode (Mario Kart DS has it) to add more to the single player experience.

As for 3D World, it is very good but 2 of the bonus worlds are pretty much reskins of levels from the main game and to unlock the final world you have to get all collectibles and a 1-up from every flag pole.in the game. Tropical Freeze I found extremely fun but given your opinion on the Wii game you probably won't like it as the collect all KONG letters to unlock secret levels is still present but the number of main levels is also reduced to allow for unlocked by secret exits levels.

@Porky The Nintendo twitter accounts confirmed it this morning.

I'm really excited for this DLC especially seeing the return of more Wii courses (Wario's Gold Mine). The only thing that's rather annoying is the DLC placement in single player mode (you can see 16 "???"s in GP mode representing the 16 new tracks for example).

@Ventilator @ULTRA-64 Thanks for your info on the Blacklist situation, although I owned it on Xbox 360. I decided to get the Wii U version with the cheap sale to vary my Wii U library as well as the larger chance of finding people to play with in co-op (the 360 version is completely dead thanks to Watch Dogs).

@DrJoson "It's likely that it would be free as well" I strongly disagree with this statement, if you look at all the DLC released for 3DS/Wii U the only content which is free is the Mercedes vehicles for Mario Kart 8 and of course that would be free as it's the only way successful advertising of the GLA would work. Everything else is paid just like I'd expect that new characters and tracks in Mario Kart 8 would not be free.

I'll be getting the Mario Kart 8 DLC and Mario Golf Advance Tour but the former first because it comes out first. The only issue I have with Advance Tour being Wii U VC is there won't be the crosstalk stuff with Toadstool Tour (you could connect them using the GCN to GBA link cable).

@BensonUii Simple, if the Mercedes DLC was on disc content then the update could have unlocked it. Another approach could have been something like the update causing all online modes to go "You do not have the necessary DLC to play this mode" unless you have downloaded the Mercedes DLC. The latter concept is something very familiar to FPS games to prevent people from playing DLC game playlists without the DLC.

Grumblevolcano commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

The other current gen consoles have too few games at current that aren't just HD remakes/remasters hence based on everything announced so far it'll be Wii U only with Xbox 360 dealing with 3rd party (with regards to home consoles of course, 3DS is always there with handheld).

Grumblevolcano commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I chose Sunshine. FLUDD added huge variety to the standard Mario platfomer style, there were other ways to gain Shines than just complete levels and get 100 coins (10 blue coins = 1 shine, with those coins hidden throughout Isle Delfino), the game features Yoshi and there were really challenging parts like the poison river level which you needed Yoshi to get to. I really hope Sunshine is one of Nintendo's future HD remakes if they are actually doing more of those.

SMB3 is a close second place though it being too short prevents it from taking the top spot.
