If you can't change your router settings, you can always use the Nintendo WFC USB dongle on your computer to set up a NDS-accessible hotspot — the official ones are very rare now since they were discontinued, but you can pick up chinese knockoffs from eBay if you're interested.

@Kaysab: Nintendo's own website doesn't really specify what time, but since it's a NoE promotion, I'd say it's fair to assume that they'd be going by a European time zone, not an American one.

Xenoblade has excellent music, but if you're looking for a short game, it's not gonna be for you. my file was just shy of 100 hours when i beat the game, and i don't think i did but half of the sidequest-y stuff.

Wait, is this a Wii U questions thread or a Wii U questions and answers thread?

I'm not really sure. may as well be both, i guess, but maybe that'd make it more of a 'FAQ thread', idk :3

That said, @everyone_else — if y'all truly expect me to go around locking/redirecting to this one thread every single time someone comes in with a question, you've all got another thing coming. Similar questions I can redirect to a similar thread, but for heaven's sake it's a brand new console and it's going to take time before things settle down around here. I've been working to take care of the more prominent duplicate-thread offenders and Ant's working on something that may solve the 'endless Wii U questions clogging the forum' problem, but for now, your patience with the influx of newbies is greatly appreciated.

also, if you're not in the mood to answer them, just let someone else do it and move on, please. no one's twisting your arm to say anything if you don't want to :3
also, I'm totally gonna use SCAR392's post as an example whenever someone gets uppity about the way i do things, so thanks for that, mang :3

Our ongoing Xenoblade thread is here if you'd like to get in touch with everyone who's played it. To be honest, the game was very overwhelming at first, and i almost felt like you, but two hours is a drop in the bucket IMO. it took me quite a while to get the hang of the battle system, and gemcrafting takes practice, but the story is what drags you along — I wound up putting just shy of a solid 100 hours into my playthrough and i didn't do but maybe half of the sidequest-y things involved. It's really an amazing game IMO.

but anyway, ask away in the main thread, please :3

I never said 'majority,' I said 'broad gaming community.' Given the fact that the FFVIII characters are some of the more popular for fanfic and cosplay in the west, and given that Japan is the second largest market for games in the world, I don't see how anyone in their right mind can claim any definitive truth in saying 'these characters suck.'

(a) You used the idea of that list to welcome Reala 'to the minority'. How does that somehow not mean that you had meant the opinion of the persons used for that list to represent the 'majority'? I'm not following you there.
(b) Considering Fanfiction.net has about twice the FFVII fanfiction as FFVIII, your anecdotal evidence there may be a bit flawed. Since we're going anecdotal, though, you may also want to consider that some cosplayers choose characters just because they look pretty or their costumes are interesting. Looks aren't everything.
(c) Since when have 'truth' and 'opinion' ever gone smoothly hand-in-hand? Perhaps especially when a statement as subjective as 'i don't like this character' is involved; there are so many factors that can and do go into a personal impression of someone as a person or character it's not hard to imagine that perhaps there are people out there who disagree with whatever one person has to say. I can easily see how someone in their right mind can claim that a character 'sucks' without any provocation witnessed on my part. It's 'true' for them. Not my problem, and it's not yours either.

True, but it's also generally against the law for someone to go around displaying theirs in public for the sole sake of being as obnoxious as possible, especially when minors are involved.

A list vs your unsubstantiated opinion. Guess which one is more likely to accurately reflect the opinions of the broad gaming community?

I like how a list originating from Japan (thus reflecting Japanese opinion) represents the 'majority' of the world's gaming community now...?

@penderri: I'm not sure what advertisements or articles you read, but Nintendo's own website clearly states the dates and other restrictions of the offer. I'm sorry you were disappointed, but if you have any actual message for them, you'd probably be better served contacting them directly. Good luck to you!

Xenoblade does indeed require the nunchuk if you're using the wiimote setup. I'm wanting to say you can use the classic controller if you want instead, but it's one or the other, not just a wiimote.

@CosmiC: A quick google search shows that this isn't the first time chicken vertebrae would have shown up in a bucket of KFC. the OP might get an apology, but srsly when eating meat that's been processed in a factory, expect to see some extra bits of the animal you're eating show up from time to time. it's all part of being a lazy omnivore.
