    Kundis, meaning 'where you are from'

    Cunt and country both spawned from that word.

    Upon researching the internet I can't find a single reference. Did I dream that?

    There's a U in WiiU, cunt, and country.

    I'll stop now.

    Great on the etymology of the word, seems most likely from old German/Norse (they aren't sure which) 'kunton' simply meaning female genetalia.

    I remember seeing 'queynte' (meaning 'cunt') in Chaucer, and it was punned to also mean quaint, implying a different pronunciation from 'kunton' so implying a different eymology.

    But then I had a word with myself and realised googling 'cunt' on a Sunday night is not the best use of my time.

    Strange. That's been my average Sunday night for years.

    Why do you guys take everything so seriously?

    Life isn't meant to be taken seriously.

    Go back under the rock you crawled out from you silly-willy man.

    I may or may not be serious.

    I think life is supposed to be taken pretty seriously to be honest.

    So I've been playing Xenoblade Chronicles on my Wii U. Bloody great game, but mainly it has really wet my appetite for the native Wii U xenoblade game they're working on. HD graphics, hopefully online MP and the gamepad for MMO style short cut menu will be absolutely brilliant.

    Scrolling left and right to select your next art is serviceable on the Wii but using a touchscreen to go straight to a shortcut will be a hell of a lot better.

    Have high hopes for Xenoblade 2 ;)

    *EDIT* Actually that has me thinking more about how useful the gamepad will be for any RPG on a console. Not having enough buttons is always an issue when it comes to ability heavy games like RPGs / MMOs - gamepad fixes that issue entirely.

    The Wii U is 250 (a bit less if the buyer collects). It's worth 300 new. You are wrong.

    Put it on ebay if you're that desperate for money.

    Called it

    Not to jump on the bandwagon but you've been hawking it around for a while, maybe Ebay time.

    To be fair to him though a cursory look on ebay reveals 250 delivered is a pretty good price.

    Yep, I'll be off to fleaBay soon, but the fees are outrageous.

    Thank you, 250 is a good price, I'd even go to 235 if it was collected.

    i think if you want a quick sale just take 200 for it. if it were me i'd hate all the aggravation of trying to sell it and would just ask straight away for the lowest price i'd accept.

    if people don't want it for 200 you may as well keep it, you'll never sell it.

    I agree, eBay is the best option.
    Set it at buy it now, 250 with 15.00 PF as your standard delivery option because it will cost over 20 to post via Special Delivery.

    Personally, i'd sell the game, controller and console seperatly.

    Pro controller - 25 + 3.00 P&P (Recorded)
    NSMB - 31.00 + 3.00 P&P (Recorded)

    Wii U console, 210, cash on collection only.

    Seeing a Wii U offered via the forum is a useful metric for gauging demand at least. It looks like Nintendo has already burned through the majority of those who would buy day one, price be damned. I don't think sales will be spiking until something big lands release wise.

    At this stage, it needs games *and* a price cut.

    Not really if it was just one, the same happens for pretty much every console. I think the fact a few have been offered up is the thing that indicates they haven't really got the game there to keep most of the good people of EG interested.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi
