    Genuinely impressed with how each game is linked to its own forum via miiverse.  So you can press the Home button at any time which pauses the game, takes a screenie which you can then post with text to miiverse.

    Been using it in Mario when I get stuck or if I find something cool to share.  Then with a press of the Home button you are back in the game exactly where you left off.

    Its really quick and works really well, the miiverse stuff is formatted nicely and easy to browse.

    For all of the backward approaches to networking Nintendo have shown over the years, miiverse and its integration shows that they can have little moments of genius in this area.

    They may do, but sure I already have superior hardware to either PS4 or Xbone.

    I really like the miiverse functionality, its great, useful and fun.

    You dont have to troll every positive post or opinion that someone makes ya know?

    I do love Miiverse. If you need help, you can just pop it up, ask for help with a screenshot attached, and check later. Then, they can reply with words, little diagrams, or a screenshot of the solution.

    Plus it's nice just as a social hub. You can organise games with like minded people, share opinions on characters or whatever. Yeah, it's basically just a forum, but it's fairly moderated and directly linked to the Wii U experience. I like that.

    I wouldn't want this stuff posted to anywhere else like Facebook, but I think that's an obvious and handy way to go with it too, especially if they link that to Facebook groups for the individual games so it mirrors the same functionality. It's a nice system, having similar elsewhere won't change that :)

    I've just adopted my first Wii U stalker; someone posted in the Star Wars Pinball MiiVerse "I need friends" so I added him. I assumed he was after friends to add competition to his pinball scores; I was playing tonight and my MiiVerse began flashing, I had received a message from my new friend "I tried video chatting you but got no reply check your video chat to see the missed call."

    WTF? I think the kid is from the US; I'm not video chatting with strangers, especially when I'm wearing a red tracksuit and have a big gold medallion.

    Going by their Mii avatar I'd say he/she was male.

    Either they're planning to groom you, or they want you to groom them so they can turn around and accuse you of things. I'd cut them loose if I were you. Maybe risk it if they're the right gender and at least claim they're old enough.

    Well I added him to my friends list as I assumed he wanted friends in the Zen Pinball Star Wars to improve his "Team score" apparently he doesn't even own Star Wars Pinball. Since adding him he hasn't appeared on "My Friends High Scores Table."

    It's not this Andrew bloke I can see in the Star Wars Pinball board? He's also asking for Yeahs, without actually posting anything that even remotely deserves it, and posting asking for friends on a lot of places. Almost all of his posts are "Yeah this if you like [X]". He's even had posts deleted!

    Might not be your creeper Sid, but definitely a creepy kid.

    Well that's even creepier. A list of his all posts:

    i need friend please
    i need friend
    me need a girl
    need girl
    i need a girl that is my friend so friend me please
    i need a girl that is my friend
    me need friend please girls and boys
    i need friendes please friend me
    friend me me need friend
    i need more friendes please please
    i have no friend so anyone can be my friend

    Yeah... no thanks. People are calling him out on his constant requests though. Still, his Game Experience is Expert so there's that.

    Yes that's the guy; I've deleted my post with his name is spoiler on the off chance he visits Eurogamer, which I doubt as there is no weirdo's here. :)

    Someone will report him; at first I thought Deckard1 had bit the bullet and bought a Wii U. Deckard1 hasn't been seen since he went marching to Newcastle Exhibition Park on Saturday.

    Case in point.
    In all seriousness, if you have nothing constructive to add and are just posting to wind people up, perhaps you could stop? Negativity is pretty much par for the course for this thread and that's fine - because lets face it - the Wii U isn't in a healthy state right now.

    But for the sake of people's sanity and in an effort to let those of us who want to use the thread for half sensible discussion, could you kindly fuck off somewhere else to find your entertainment during your working week?
