Drill Dozer on the Wii U VC. Haven't played the game yet, but I've heard good things! Curious to see what else Game Freak can churn out besides Pokemon.

You have a chance to get to it?

Yes! It was a pretty fun game. The plot wasn't particularly deep as expected, but graphically it has aged well and has some neat mechanics that are (mostly) intuitive. The only thing I disliked was using the propeller add-on, but it's doable. Probably the best aspects for me were that they 1. translated the game's rumble to work with the Wii U GamePad, and 2. used many sound bits from the Gen 3 Pokemon games that hit me right in the nostalgia.

It's a little on the short side if you just play it from stage to stage, but there are collectibles and upgrades that add to replayability.

Currently playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Ori and the Will of the Wisps (Switch)

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

Last game I bought on Wii U was Lords of Thunder. I probably already posted that here before but it bears mentioning a couple times. I believe it had less input lag than that game’s last release on the PCEngine mini. That’s why I didn’t bother with the PCEngine mini. But I also have a Duo R. I hope LoT and other Hudson IP come to Switch with minimal lag. But something will have to hit Konami up side the head it seems before that happens.

Nice game! The Core Grafx Mini as it's called in the UK has minimal input lag. It has a great interface & some secret versions to find. I recommend highly if you're a shoot 'em up fan. I'll slap Konami from the left if you slap them from the right.

I grabbed Pikmin 1 & 2 from the eshop, my Wii U is now my Pikibox. Tempted to go for Metroid Prime Trilogy but I have the disc & it's a big file.

I'm playing through Pikmin 3 on my GamePad right now, and I love it. So much fun. I never played through 1 or 2, though. I would hold off on the Metroid Prime Trilogy because there's decent chances Nintendo is making an HD version for Switch.

@Gryffin
Good shout. I highly recommend both Pikmins but 2 is amazing & has bulbmin.

Wind Waker HD is so good. Never played the original but it feels like a new game.

After picking up Minecraft on the Switch to play with a friend, I decided to pick it up on Wii U so that my children wouldn't bug me to play my Switch. They are happy, and I am happy. Who would have thought I would be buying a Wii U game in 2021....

@Mikmoomamimocki I can't believe I don't own it yet. The Wii U is one of my favorite consoles and the one I play most right now. Wind Waker is possibly my favorite game (top three for sure alongside Sly Cooper and Snake Eater). I think I'm waiting for the right time since the game is so important to me.

@Darknyht The Minecraft Wii U port is pretty good in my opinion. It runs well and I haven't encountered any issues with it. I just wish that they had done something special with the gamepad. Like crafting, wouldn't it be cool if you could use the gamepad to drag stuff onto the crafting table? Or maybe gyro aim for bows or something.

@Mikmoomamimocki It runs, and my kids enjoy it. So that pretty much meets my criteria. I probably will never play it as I have the Bedrock edition on Switch. It does make it easier to change between versions when everything works the same.
