    150 hours since May I have clocked up on my wii u. Think that means I have had good value for my 150.

    My 360 has had about 10 hours all year divided between Forza Horizon and GTA5. My PS3 fared better with TLOU, so about 15 hours.

    My PC probably had about 50 hours between Metro LL, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite. Dont really play BF3 as bit bored of it.

    Yep, wii u is a hit here!

    What does the 56660 figure mean beside the Wind Waker miiverse? Is that members or number of posts?

    Pinky, how do you know you've clocked up 150 hours? Is there a way of checking on the Wu?

    There's a chart of all of your gameplay statistics; from the date you purchased the console.

    @rumblesushi Yeah the stats are pretty comprehensive. Daily and monthly stats for all apps and games.

    I always assumed it was the number of people that posted, hence why Wind Waker, which will have people posting stuff to it all the time with Tingle Bottles, isn't far higher. I'm probably wrong, but that's my logic.

    I'm at about 330 hours usage on my Wii U since May, mostly since it's my main console. If you count multi-paltform stuff, there really is plenty there :)

    You can also see how long you have spent per game/ day or month it's quite cool so far nsmbu is top for me with 30 hours but wind asked isn't far behind

    I'm ashamed to say I haven't used mine in quite some time. Not for lack of games - Wonderful 101 and WW HD are right up my alley - but purely because I'm more interested in making a dent in my existing backlog before the next gen hits.

    That will all change once Mario 3D World hits though. Can't wait for that.

    Has online play been confirmed for it, or is it just local?

    Shame if that's the case. I can imagine a 4-player EG game would be pretty fun.

    I noticed some men in white coats and Pikmin moving things in and out of the eShop when I looked through the window earlier today.

    As long as they can make it playable for left-handers this time round... gave up on Nano Assault as it was just an absolute headache to play left-handed.

    Having an analogue stick on both sides though should help that this time, if they're doing something similar.

    You talking about the 3DS or Wii U game?

    They actually made a nifty looking racer on Wiiware called Fast racing league which could be due a sequel.

    Would look wonderful on Wii U and could be the closest we get to that elusive new F-Zero game.

    Shinen are graphical wizards for such a small company. If they can nail the playability they are set. Nintendo should buy them, they love working on Nintendo hardware.

    FAST was got everything right apart from the AI apparently, it was far too hard.

    With a guiding Nintendo hand they would make a great first party dev team.

    Damn, that Fast Racing League looks pretty good actually, surprised I've never heard of it.

    @rumblesushi Its too hard for you rumblestilskin. Its too hard for everyone. Looks delicious though. Motion controls only also.

    Shinen are kind of a close, but no cigar type of dev house. Having said that its only a matter of time before they knock one out of the park. Maybe its this time?

    Maybe FAST 2 is actually F-Zero U? Eh? Eh??????

    Doubtful. Miyamoto pretty much shot down any real hope of getting a modern F-Zero game.

    Sid's Log Star Date 22/10/2013 950 hours and 10 minutes; I'm pleased that the internet explorer sessions don't stipulate what I was up to. :)

    Racers are my thing, and I don't find F-Zero GX too difficult, so I'll check this one out :cool:

    Motion control only sounds annoying though. It's fun for Mario Kart, which is slow, and not exactly about perfect racing lines, but for a futuristic racer you need something more fast and precise.
  • Deleted user 22 October 2013 00:48:19
    'FAST Racing Leauge' supports classic controller as far as I know.

    Wii U Stats-o-rama. About 290 hours use since last Christmas:

    160 hours of usage in the first 3 months. Then 130 hours over the next 7 months. A lot of non-gaming use.

    Some highlights:

    - 36 hours on Miiverse (26 of that occurring in Jan/Feb)
    - 20 hours on Lovefilm
    - 16 hours on Internet Broswer
    - 51 hours on Zen Pinball (35 hours occurring in Feb.Shame it wiped all my scored when it upgraded)
    - 30 hours on Lego City
    - 20 hours on Netflix (used free trial to watch several seasons of Damages)

    Some lowlights (is that even a word?):

    - Only 3.5 hours on Pikmin so far. Gotta have full tv access to get the best experience.
    - 6 hours in Mario Wii U (I need to be in the right mood for this to make progress due to high difficulty level/being crap at it)
    - Only 1 minute on Wonderful 101 (loaded it to make sure it works)

    From June to August I used it for only 25 hours. 35 hours usage this months as I have had holidays and lots of free time. However, half of that has been on Art Academy and Miiverse. Sometimes I leave it switched on in the cradle and it auto powers off, so a few of those hours above will be idle.

    630 hours since November 2012. I managed to rack up 112 hours in December alone! I'm also on 63 hours this month, much to my surprise. I honestly didn't think I had much time for gaming. What a crock-o-crap that is.

    41:25 - Miiverse
    44:05 - Nintendo Land
    25:44 - New Super Mario Bros
    63:53 - Assassin's Creed 3
    119:47 - Internet Browser
    27:59 - Zen Pinball 2
    94:34 - Monster Hunter 3U
    38:18 - Lego City Undercover

    Jeez... I need to get a life.

    @Raiko101

    That's like 3 hours a day of gaming every day so far this month!

    I'm sure I've played more of Pikmin and I wonder if it doesn't save your play time if you power off from the game main menu. I also thought that I'd have games more given that I don't have any tv channels, so don't watch any tv.
