    Footage of games? What madness is this?! I want Rufus Hound comparing things to foodstuffs while looking like he's got a gun aimed at him from off screen!

    They are only doing it now because a few months ago they didnt have enough games to make up a decent trailer, and half the games on it wont be out for a while anyway.

    Right, just bought a new 150 Basic set. Does anyone have a positive experience of using a USB-powered portable HDD for extra storage? Nintendo only seem to recommend full size powered external HDD.

    Is there anything else I should know?

    You can definitely use them with a Y USB Cable, I think there's a list earlier in this thread...

    Yep, plugged in a 320gb portable drive with a Y cable and it works flawlessly. Don't waste another plug socket with a bulky 3.5 drive, Y cable all the way.

    @brokenkey I use an old seagate 120gb drive that is years old. No external power but has 2 usb connectors, it draws power using one and passes data on the other. Plugged both into the wii u and it works flawlessly.

    I don't think I've got a pHDD that used a y-cable. I'll try one of single cable jobbies and see how I get on.

    @brokenkey Its unlikely it will work but worth a try. I noticed that someone was happy with this. Might nab one myself as its a good price:

    @brokenkey Just buy one of these for USB2 http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-feet-Cable-External-Drive/dp/B003WV5DMO/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

    Or this for USB3 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00ARBB76S/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They should work perfectly for any portable drive on the WU.
  • Deleted user 25 August 2013 02:03:15
    @Pinky_Floyd I don't think that's a good price at all for a full size USB2 drive, especially a Buffalo one. In my experience, Hitachi portable drives are solid as a rock and fairly fast. You can buy a 1tb USB3 portable Hitachi drive on Amazon for just over 50 quid.

    I have recently bought a Wii U and like it a lot so far.

    However I have noticed the funds I had on the 3DS estore are not there on the WiiU estore even though I have linked nintendo accounts on both systems.

    Is that right ?

    Crikey, have no idea. I have a couple of quid on my wii u account so will double check later to see if that appears in my 3ds shop.

    They're still seperate accounts. Linking just links the Club Nintendo reward stuff. Nintendo may have the Nintendo Network system now, but only on Wii U. So cash isn't cross platform. Nintendo may have made the first steps towards a proper account system, but I think we're still way off it being worthwhile ;)

    Wii U wins a face off? Probably not that surprising given the age of the 360 and PS3. Might be the last face off it wins too so if winning face offs are your bag and you own a wii u, enjoy. Either way, the game isnt for me on any format :)

    Bit of cross-pimping. I'm after a copy of MH3U for wii-u on the swapsies thread if anyone's looking to offload theirs.

    Just preordered rayman for 29 on Amazon. Forgot it was due and with FIFA 14 and gta around the corner I'm not sure how much time ill have to play it but my son and I loved the demo so it's a little treat for us at a bargain price frankly :D

    @binky Let me know if any good. Origins didnt grab me and neither did the legends demo, but open to having my mind changed.

    Preordered legends as well, although i thought the original was a tad overrated it still was a quality 2d platformer so this is a no brainer for 2d platform lovers.

    The Rayman Legends review on Nintendo Life is brilliant.

    ... shame about the kids in the comments below.

    Let's have a quick look at one of those children managed to write with the help of their parents:

    I'm going to give it a 4.5/10

    Why? 9/10 for the game, 0/10 for the publisher. 9 + 0 = 9 / 20 = 4.5 / 10 And I don't buy games that score below 5/10.

    In other words, Disney Planes get a 6/10 here and I give Disney a 8/10 = 14 / 20 = 7 / 10.So it's worth a purchase from a sales bin.

    FIFA (any) I'm going to give the game a 2/10, and the publisher (EA) a 3/10, which makes a 5/20 and a 2.5/10 See, I don't buy it.

    I give Nintendo a 9/10. So I buy each game that get at least a 2/10 :+

    If a game is good, but the publisher stinks then I won't give them any money. If a game is decent and the publisher is decent then I might get the game.

    Publisher scores are renewed on a monthly basis.

    So, if something good happens and I'm going to increase my Ubisoft score to 2/10 or higher I will get the game. This can only happen IF they announce Beyond Good and Evil 2 for the Wii U and/or PC.
    Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

    That's just one of many!

    Scarily I can see the logic if I look real hard

    What I don't understand is how ubisoft scores a 0 and ea scores a 3 surely t should be the other way round??

    This is about how I felt with Origins. I played it on the Vita and it was really rather good but wasn't the Mario beater some people claimed. Looking forward to the new version because frankly there aren't enough quality 2D platformers out there these days.

    Well, to their eyes Ubisoft delayed Rayman and made it multiplatform, so that's why they're punished with a 0/10 I guess...
