    Interesting. I really got it just to try and involve the other half a little, so in that respect if I get a few miles out of it then it won't be so bad.

    Without support the company would die; purchasing a 3DS XL will obviously subsidise the Wii U and ensure first party support, Nintendo are a business that is true and I play with their consoles, I don't play with family members.

    Grabbed a copy of Nintendo Land for 15 from CEX - so looks like I'm all set this evening as the Wii U has arrived and the wife is standing guard over it cos looking after 3 kids doesn't keep her anywhere near busy enough.

    So a bit of multiplayer Mario Chase and New Super Mario Bros U is on the cards. Assuming I can get it connected to my wi-fi and updated. Yeah, I've been reading about that, sounds fun.
    My Wi-Fi connection through a BT Homehub is fucking terrible. Cuts out every 30 seconds, making playing NFS or using Wii Street U a nightmare as it boots me out as soon as starting up.

    The homehub works like a dream with my Mac and 3DS however. The internet compatibility with Wii U is a bit of a joke, it just seems to randomly dislike a modem for no reason at all.

    This is why people think you guys are weird.
    How is that comment weird?
    How is it not weird? You are congratulating someone on their loyalty to a corporate entity.
    To be honest given the fiasco I would tell Nintendo to fuck off. However I have all the other consoles already. I bought a 3DS as there are some games I quite want to play. I feel quite dirty that people would assume I was deliberately supporting a company that would fuck people over by dropping a new console within a few months of release.

    @Pinky_Floyd My kids love it. It's one of those game I pretend to enjoy with them. Everything is so shallow and disposable. It's like a collection of bad iPad games dressed up in Nintendo characters.

    It's shallow and crap as a single-player experience, but as a tool for showing off the WiiU to other people it's pretty good.

    I thought NintendoLand is great, try mastering all of the missions on the Metroid game, it's not shallow, and it certainly ain't easy. Donkey Kong's Crash course is also good fun, it's also rock hard.

    I quite enjoy NintendoLand. It does have a big flaw though, in that it gives you absolutely zero indication of just how much depth there is to it when you're starting out. Given how much it interrupts you with tutorials that's a real problem. It's all good and well making a game that isn't as shallow as it first appears, but if you forget to actually assure the players of that they're not going to bother!

    There are quite a few of the mini-games that have a lot of content to them, such as Zelda and Metroid. The Ninja Castle one has a bit of meat to it too, but I'm not a big fan as I found personally the bosses to be to much of a jump in difficulty and I'm not good enough at it. Donkey Kong is the single player game I've played most, but there's not all that much to it past it having a few levels. The other games aren't as well featured, but Yoshi's Fruit Cart, Balloon Fight and Octopus Dance are solid enough - Balloon Fight in particular could've been a proper sequel, albeit a downloadable one.

    As for the multi-player stuff, the Ghost one is a lot of fun with a few people, especially one you've all learned the ins and outs of it. Mario Chase is similar, though I didn't find it as fun as the Ghost one because you've really got less options as Mario - the Ghost can boost around, cast magic and use vibrations as misdirection. Mario can run and that's about it.

    I don't like Animal Crossing though. Collecting the candy wasn't really that fun for me, and controlling 2 guards was more than my fragile mind can take ;) The F-Zero one is alright for a quick go but I always find myself going back to the really good games.

    Get out, DFawkes. This thread is about paedophiles and how shit the WiiU is. You have three too many paragraphs.

    Nintendo Land as a single player game can't really keep you entertained for a couple of hours at best, but it's pretty damn entertaining for multiplayer. Zelda and Luigi come to mind as pretty damn fun.
