    Nintendoland arrived today via DPD.

    Only 24 hours later than if they had sent it via TNT next day delivery like I asked them to. Oh well, at least it's here in time for the party tomorrow.

    Surprised by zombiu. Very polished for a low budget title, proper survival horror - not sure if I can handle the tension in it

    Halo 4
    and
    XCOM

    CEX trade in: 84.00
    GAME: 51:00

    AS CeX is within the mile GAME were forced to trade in price match :)

    Walked out with FC3 and 41 quid on a gift card and 9 on the rewards card.... That may go towards a Wii U

    Thank you! You just cemented my choice of game to play next - zombiu or far cry 3.

    Zombiu it is. Been ages since i played a horror game that was actually scary.

    Has anybody's home screen started showing some actual gamers, rather than just 'NINTENDO' Miis? I've got friends who appear in the middle, around my Mii, but that's about it at the minute.

    Popped up to tescos, no signs of wii u consoles.They did have the ps3, wonderbook bundles right up the front of the shop. Seems to be selling well.

    They had wii u games though. Only mario, zombie u and fifa. Fifa looked like it sold fuck all. Mario ok, but zombie u really well, only 1 copy left.

    My local CEX is on the same street as Gamestation (so same thing as Game these days). They actively collude to not compete with each other on price right in front of customers - I've been in gamestation when someone from CEX strolled in and they swapped information about how much each shop was offering on trade in for a certain game (can't remember which one, it was ages ago).

    Given the trade in prices are handed down from head office I assume they then feed that information back (assuming this happens in various places due to regional differences in demand?). Might explain why on some titles theres a huge difference in some titles and not others - on the big titles they can both rip off customers equally without losing customers to each other.

    Was tempted to get one but after reading Rab Florence's pained, pained butthurt defence of the Wii U I must say I'm going to pass for now.

    Well I just paid 49.99 on the eStore for NSMB U.

    Mario permanently on the HD and readily available without hunting down the disk. Sold!

    Well the good news is that my joypad isn't fucked, the menu is just super shit with analogue sticks (tried a bunch of games and t'was just dandy). Turns out if you do it on the d-pad it glitches too :D

    Bad news is the bunch of games are all pretty shite, Nintendo deserve a very harsh reality check if they think they can up the RRP to 49.99 then release the likes of Nintendoland and yet-another-mario-platformer. SuperMeatBoy was better and that cost pocket-money, and I could find a better iOS alternative for most of the Nintendoland games and still have enough money for blow and hookers.

    Then you have third party stuff, which in everycase has been technically inferior and blam - more than full price again on the Wii U.

    The online stuff is just dreadful, the technology for the pad itself is actually rather special - but the rest of it has been developed in complete isolation, has anybody at Nintendo even tried PSN or Xbox Live? Because if they did they'd feel ashamed of releasing this in the state it's in. I have to wait longer just to go into the settings than I do to get into a game on other systems and no amount of Brian Eno eque music makes that acceptable.

    I keep changing my mind about this. I'm now in the "wait for a price drop" camp.

    199 for the 32GB with NSMBU and I'm in.

    However, if that takes too long then I'll probably find myself holding out for 720/PS4.

    I got my premium with the Amazon 199 fuck up, they also sent me a code for Nintendoland for reasons I don't quite understand - and I still kind of feel ripped off. I'd seriously hold off unless for some reason you absolutely have to have it. If you've already got a current gen console and a tablet, nothing about it is going to impressive you that much.

    Oh, and I love how they went to the effort of making the controller also control my Sky and TV box, but then made the battery last 3 measly hours. I opened up the battery pack to see how changeable it is - and they have a tiny battery put into a space that was clearly designed for a bigger one. I don't even moan about DLC being on discs but releasing a new product with a huge hole in ready for the "upgrade" winds me up.

    Can't agree with you pirotic. I think nsmbu and nintendoland are wonderful games.

    We can all agree the pad tech is amazing

    Nah that's cool, to be honest the kids really liked Nintendoland but the problem is I'm not paying 49.99 for games for my kids, not when they'll happily play Plants vs Zombies for hours for a fraction of the cost. I don't think I've paid more than 40 at all this generation for a game, even the big launch titles on the other platforms. I really don't see what they've done which justifies the increase, and it's not even like Nintendo games drop in price quickly which is the real kicker - still waiting for Nintendogs 3DS to drop below 20 in vain.

    All signs point to bail out for me, oh well - I got it cheap so can't complain, if I'd paid full price I'd be pretty peeved. It's very much a last gen console at new gen prices.

    I can't get over how good the pad is! No lag, lovely screen (doesn't need HD IMO) and it feels good as a controller.

    I said it after my play test in October, the digital 'triggers' are great too! I can understand concerns regarding driving games but I never play them.
  • Deleted user 30 November 2012 23:04:46
    Put 4 hours and the single player and still have loads to do. I agree that 50 is silly money money but most will be getting this with the console.

    Mario is brilliant and I'd gladly pay the asking price, good 2d platforms are far and few between and I don't see why this shouldn't be regarded in value as the latest "epic".
