Sounds great to me. Get my kids to try a bite size of a game before I decide to buy it for them. I know I love the games of the past and played the best Nintendo has to offer. But what my kids like and what I like are very different. Found out the hard way. Lot of classics sitting on the Wii U that they just don't appreciate at this point in their development.

@Grumblevolcano even better!

Account wise, I have transferred my Wii onto Wii U onto another Wii U. 3DS to 3DS XL( which was broken unable to turn it on) onto a new 3DS XL over the phone and then finally onto a New 3DS XL. Maintaining my huge volume of digital content. Not as quick as login link new user but it works. I haven't lost a thing in the transfers.

@DarkKirby my experiences have been for the most part been positive. Most of steams features have been implemented in the Nintendo network- Miiverse differentiates users who own the game when it comes to posts. Ratings are in the eShop reflect those who bought it, can't leave a rating unless they own it. Kind of hard to see these things from an external point of view. Buying games is easy, you have the option of saving credit card info and click(touch) away. While they haven't had any large Steam size sales, sales do happen. I remember buying mega man games and others for 50% off a while back.

For the most part I favor Shulk and Pac-Man in For Glory 1v1.

It was a hell of a learning curve for Shulk on when and where to use each Monado buff. But it was for the best. I was losing match after match at first. Then things started to turn around. Little Macs, Bowsers, Zero Suits, Foxes, and Game and Watches seem to get into this particular pattern every fight. Shulk and his Monado arts throw them all off. I am in a good winning streak....except when it comes to Jiggly puff...they get me every time! It is very funny!

Ghosts isn't bad. I have never seen over 800 folks playing at any given time online. Barely on average 600 really. 300 or so on team death match, the other on domination. then nickels and dimes to the other modes. Enough to find matches easily enough on the main modes but never ever enough to play cranked or hardcore mode. Extinction mode is decent but not reliably getting a 4
Person team every time.

Agreed. I am five years platinum in a row. I own all of these except Donkey Kong returns 3D....which I own the Wii version. Great game and had great reviews...but.. Eh.. Rather let down. Most of the time I like sending the cool exclusive prizes to my brother as his birthday is around the time I receive the physical ones in the mail.

@wayneyrob22 short on games? Have you looked at the eShop? Or say....anything recent articles showing top 10 to own; 10 reasons to buy a Wii U now. I personally own Mario/Luigi U. Game & Wario, Nintendo Land, ZombiU, COD Ghosts, Pikmin 3, Wii Fit U, Wii Sports HD, Zelda HD, Deus EX Directors Cut, Sonic Lost Worlds (my son wanted it; surprisingly fun), Ducktales Remastered, NES Remix, ZEN Pinball (own three boards wife loves the high scores competiviness), Mighty Switch Force HD, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Kart 8 with free Wii party U. From there I got a lot of Virtual Console games: Mega Man X, Earthbound, Ghosts n Goblins, Donkey Kong and Punch Out. Phew! I think that almost all of them. But yeah!

There is no shortage of games. Do your research!



orravan85 commented on New 3DS System Update 7-2-0-17 Now Live:

Never thought I would ever bother with parental controls. But being a father of two boys who are proud owners of 2DSs, it is a much used tool. And yes; the new email function will be something I will start using immediately. Thanks Nintendo; that was a spot on idea. Now can we link games to accounts and not systems??



orravan85 commented on New York Times Critic Identifies Super Mario 3...:

I get a lot of people admitting to me that thee Wii U is a great system and a great buy. But just don't take the plunge because they wanted to wait and see what the other systems have to offer. Oh and knowing that so far, no BF4 means no buy.



orravan85 commented on Review: Mario Party: Island Tour (3DS):

Bought it for my boys. One copy, and 1 3DS XL LMITED ZELDA edition, 1 3DS and 2 2DSs in my household= FUN for everyone. (one of the 3DS's has a hinge broken, will turn that in soon for repairs). So much fun with this. Haven't played a Mario Party game since Mario Party 2.



orravan85 commented on IDC Expects Console Sales To Rise This Year:

I alone know of 5 people that will be buying a wii U; due to playing it in my house. They also noted the great digital offerings and the great idea of buying a external hard drive versus paying premium costs for internal hard drive space you probably would not fill up anyways.
