I know it's kids and they are racing for fun, but it's hard to watch them race and have them not sliding around corners... it's interesting to watch as someone who only plays solo or online in the higher brackets. I like that the game can be enjoyed on so many different skill levels; That has to be hard to balance for.

@Mahe In terms of links, I view it on my TV and then just click the link on the gamepad. It's not inconvenient. It's much easier than browsing on any other console. I've personally had no problems with it being heavy, but surely you could just switch to the pro controller if that bothered you enough. I don't know why you're trying to put it down in some cubby hole somewhere. I think most people have a space for a tablet sized object next to their couch. I will give you the fact that the battery dies really fast but that's an easy 30$ fix. Get the extended battery. Personally I feel like it's basically required or else the thing dies too quickly. It's an official licensed product, by nintendo, fits in the same place. It makes a big difference.

If you've played many DS/3DS games, you would know that what most of the devs do with 2 screens is put all the main content on the top screen (in this case it would be your TV) and put inventory, or map or something else that you're not constantly looking at, on the lower screen. I don't see how this couldn't be adapted to this Wii U. In fact it should make games for Nintendo easier to adapt for both platforms since both the 3DS and Wii U have similar screen output now.

I don't understand why people dislike the gamepad so much to be honest. The stylus interface allows much easier typing and surfing the web on the Wii U using the gamepad is SO MUCH easier than any of the other consoles.
I get the argument about price, but I think most people aren't holding off because of the controller, they are waiting for games. There's honestly not many games for it.
I like my (very recently bought) WiiU and can't wait for some more titles to play on it. It took developers a while to get a handle on how to make good DS games, some of them just need to bring that same mentality to making Wii U games.
