    My Wii U has now froze twice today while playing Sonic, both times I had to switch it off at the plug. Very worrying having to do that. :/

    The saturn had analogue sticks? I don't remember that.

    I have a feeling they released the Saturn analogue controller after seeing the e3 N64 reveal but before its actual release.

    Analogue sticks were around about 21 years before Nintendo ever used them. So no, they didn't invent it.
    Meh fine. I didn't mean they invented the concept of analogue controls, but the N64 was the first gaming console to have them.
    Not even close. Like I said - 21 years earlier there was this console:

    I've spent some time mucking about and I'm really impressed with the GUI, eShop and miiverse apart from the speed which definitely needs improved.
    It's a very nice machine so far, Nintendoland up next!

    Metroid is worth playing through to the end with each controller option, if you're going to be playing alone. Zelda is brilliant if you can play co-op. Even if it's just 1 extra person. Crash Course, Balloon Trip Breeze and F-Zero are brilliant for high score chasing. You should enjoy those at the very least.

    Just because you don't remember it doesn't mean it doesn't count. My friend had this particular version of the console. The only game he had though was a Space Invaders style game, which I can only assume was "Invaders" or "Super Invaders".

    The WiiU advert they've been running over Christmas should be done for mis-selling. 'We've played Metroid, We've played Zelda...' No you haven't cunts, you've played Nintendoland mini games the Gamecube could have handled no problem!

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Another non-Nintendo analogue controller.

    The DualShock is probably the most copied controller, most gamepads are based on twin stick designs.

    The Rayman demo is pretty good, very easy on the eye and Castle Rock is a blast.

    I think what Gregolution is trying to say is that Nintendo created the Analogue thumbstick, which is entirely true and a pretty big deal. They didn't invent analogue controller as a concept, no.

    Not true, The N64 was released a month before Nights and the 3D controller came out.

    Why Nintendo didn't just add a second thumb stick to the N64 controller, I don't know. The C-buttons were apparently designed around Mario 64, so they could have just made it a stick then. Maybe costs would have been too high? As ridiculous as it sounds.

    Got skylanders giants today. £40 brand new at blockbuster. In coop it's fantastic fun. Like Kameo meets Diablo. No use of the game pad or it's built in NFC, but just really fun.

    When you say "each controller option" what do you mean? I'm still trying to get my bonce around what controllers I actually need to get the most out of Nintendolànd (prob two players, maybe sometimes 3). Is just two extra Wiimote +'s enough for all the permutations or do I need nunchucks too? Or a Pro Controller? Could get expensive if its "all the above".

    You need:

    Gamepad x1 (Every game)
    Wiimotes xhowever many additional players you want (Mario Chase, Luigi's Mansion, Animal Crossing, Pikmin)
    Wiimote+/ Wiimote with MotionPlus add-on xhowever many additional players you want (Zelda)
    Wiimote+/ Wiimote with MotionPlus add-on and Nunchuk xhowever many additional players you want (Metroid)

    For Pikmin, Zelda and Metroid you can use the non-gamepad controls solo as well.

    Hope that helps or at least doesn't confuse you even more.

    Not so much if you had a Wii, at least Wii U reuses controllers. Otherwise, yep :)

    Helps in part but also makes me realise to get the multiplayer potential out of the game I'm going to have to buy at least one Wiimote+ with Nunchuck. And I'm guessing if I wanted to do multiplayer ZombieU I'd need the Pro Controller on top of that too? So £400 basically to play multiplayer Nintendoland and ZombieU?

    You can use a Wii Remote+ and nunchuck for Zombi U. At least that's what the box says, anyway. To be honest, just assume you need Wii remotes and nun chucks for most, if not all multiplayer games.

    Wow, right you are. For some reason I've always had it in my head that NiGHTS came out first.

    Yeah, pretty much what I was thinking. I'll just wait a few months, I'm a big Nintendo fan but I'm not desperate to play any of the current "U" games.
