    I'm impulsive. If asda in store had been doing that deal today I might have bought it. Really though, might prefer a 3DS as Nintendo seem to be bringing smashing games out for that. I'm kinda puzzled why they have released the Wii U but failed to give it good first party software support.

    I almost think they rushed it just to get a year head start on the others. Nah......

    I'd say buy a 3DS if you have a Nintendo itch.

    The Wii U is a particular shade of brown. The best "game" on it right now is a demo and that'll be hitting 360/PS3 anyway.

    Unless you hate handhelds, the 3DS is definitely the better bet at the moment. And I say that as one of the few who's actually happy with my Wii U.

    @MatMan562 I think quite a few owners on here are, to be fair. I've hit 450 hours play time on my console and not a moment has been wasted. Love the OS and Miiverse. The Virtual console is finally up and running and i've still got games i've yet to play.

    There's still alot to look forward too, even if half of it hasn't yet been dated.

    Even tho I've only just brought mine, I absolute love it. I brought zombie u and Mario Bros with it and I'm amazed with how good the graphics are in Mario and ray man challenge are, they almost look next gen to me when compared to my ps3. I should be getting batman in the post today which I got on Amazon for 17 and I'll defo will be getting deus ex for it even tho I've got it for my ps3. Can't wait to see what else ninty have in store for it

    The update takes half an hour and I've spent a fractin of the time on Wii updates compared to the PS3, a small fraction.
    Additionally, no other console supplies a second controller.
    Pathetic.

    A good post. Some reasonable points there.

    Lol that you bothered to respond. Fuck me, it's universally established that the WiiU's intial update is painfully slow, it's just a (bad) joke poking fun at it.

    This is why people have such disdain for you, you're so quick to fly off the handle with righteous indignation. Nintendo are pretty shit these days; get over it. I say that as someone on a massive 3DS buzz at the moment too.

    No eyebrow raising needed here imo. I think Mazza looks gorgeous in HD on a big screen too.

    I think the gulf between Super Mario Galaxy 2 and this one is surprisingly small, which is why I was quite 'ho-hum' about the visuals the first time I played Super Mario Bros. U ... I do like the stuff that goes on in the background during the busy levels though.

    I genuinely cannot wait until the new 3D Mario is shown.

    Did you have to pay him to come along?

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    @CharlieStCloud Again, it's a personal choice thing to be fair. I love the detailed cartoon graphics and as you say the backgrounds in some of the levels (Monet inspired stuff for instance) looks fantastic to me.

    I thought it was Van Gogh's Starry Night, or am I misremembering the level?

    Do you still have the first one for the Wii? If so, how does that look connected through HDMI?

    If you think Mario U is mediocre then you need to find a new hobby. You may be tired of the Mario-style platformer, fair enough, but the game is most definitely NOT mediocre.
