    Well, they have indicated that wii karaoke u is a trial but not wii sports club. A 24 hour trial wouldn't make it's way into the headline, would it? Possibly, this is GAME after all.....

    Is Lego City Undercover worth picking up if you've just finished rinsing GTA V?

    I see the package on Amazon for Rayman/Lego for £250 which is a pretty decent buy - tempted to take the plunge.

    Again, not for me though.

    I thought it was brilliant. Not a graphical showcase but the sheer fun of the missions, the madcap script and brilliant voice acting along with the huge amount of things to do made it one of my favourite games of this year.

    Vehicle handling sucks though.

    I can never get my head around people arguing over a console/price/game... Actually thinking about it, anything game related.

    It's a toy.

    I'm getting a PS4, XBox One on launch. I'll only get them in the future and I can afford it now.
    I'm as excited as a blindfolded Louie Spence in a sausage factory.

    It's about games and choice for me. I cannot bloody wait.

    So with all the fantastic games on Wii U this christmas, are we going to finally dispel the myth that great games don't actually sell consoles as much as we think?

    Didn't you use that line with a more colourful word for Louie Spence before? ;)

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Entirely depends if you like the sort of game that is predominantly about exploring every single nook and cranny because you must find one last plant to water in order to 100% the area.

    The story mode is great but there is no doubt it is secondary to exploring the whole place to feed OCD tendencies.

    It is total and utter click-bait, but this is a paragraph that actually tallies up with my attitude to gaming up quite well:

    "The thing is, videogames arenít for me. Donít get me wrong: I like playing them but everything that comes with them Ė all the trophies, the online incentives, the invites, the incessant menus, the enforcement of online play, DLC, hidden DLC, micropayments, accounts, gamer points, updates, the list of specs, the zealots listing the specs, the pixel counting, everything Ė is total, utter hell."

    Saw a video recently of a bunch of things Nintendo should do to reverse the fortunes of the Wii U. One of the 'things' was 'achievements', I was like Ewwwwwwwwwwww god no! Fine as it is thanks :)

    Achievements have started appearing as Miiverse posts, which I find quite annoying. Especially when you have 3 or more friends playing that same game at the same time. It's even more annoying with Wii Fit, in which it'll create a post every time you play something new, too.

    Achievements really aren't necessary any more. All 3 of the new consoles will allow you to take screenshots or record footage of personal achievements that will actually hold some value to yourself.

    I thought you can tag something as an achievement, plus you don't have to post everything. The idea being that if you do something you think is pretty cool you can tag an achievement.

    The stuff in Wii fit is just people who post every time it suggests something.

    Achievements are sort of nice in the way that they can be mementos of your time with a game. However not having them on the Wii U I haven't missed them to be honest. I sort of also have objections because in a way they make playing like work , i.e. playing for something instead off for the sake of it. In the end Im probably mainly neutral towards them but leaning towards the negative

    I used to like achievements when I first got the 360, but grew to hate them and now pay no attention really. When you start playing games just to rack up your gamerscore, or avoid certain games because you won't be able to get most of its achievements, then you know something's gone wrong.

    Even as a memento of your playing history it isn't all that great - the 3DS (and Wii U, I'm guessing) does it better anyway, showing detailed stats of what you played, when you played it and for how long.

    I just cracked and bought the 219.99 M+L pack from Amazon as I had some vouchers to go towards it and it's my 31st birthday soon so fuck it. Delivery tomorrow, can't wait! I'm as excited as when I got my Dreamcast out of my 18th birthday money! Will get Mario 3D land when it released on my actual birthday.

    Joy is it to be alive.

    So I just cracked open my new Wii U and went through the update process )took about 2 mins!) but for some reason won't connect to the eshop. The browser and Miiverse work just fine but with the shop I always get error: 111 9000.... anyone know what this is about?

    Try unplugging the router and plugging it back in. Either that or do what Nintendo suggest.

    Do you pass the connectivity test when you set up the WiFi connection?

    If so then you might want to check if you have a firewall active on your router and UPnP active. Check to see if there is WiFi interference from other WiFi networks using WiFi Analyzer on android. Sometimes setting the router to a new WiFi channel that's not being used by your neighbours can help.

    You can also try to manually configure the connection. This is a guide from the techforums at Nintendo.com.

    1. Go into connection types, Hit "Manual Configuration"

    2. Input your SSID

    3. Input the correct security type, this is key.

    4. Put your password in properly

    5. For ip address "Do not auto obtain".

    6. open up cmd in your computer, type in ipconfig

    7. Now input that ip address but add 10 to the last number so "192.168.0.1" will be entered as "192.168.0.11"

    8. Enter the rest of your info inside such as subnet mask and default gateway exactly as you see it in your ipconfig.

    9. Now hit next, hit configure now for your DNS. When asked about DNS hit "Dont auto obtain".

    10. For the first server put in 8.8.8.8

    11. For the second server put in 8.8.4.4

    12. Hit Next, when asked about a proxy hit no proxy

    13. Leave mtu as the default

    14. it should work, if not check the ip and that it is the internet ip

    Thanks for the info. Yes it passes the connectivity tests no problem and no firewall. Weird. For now I'm just gonna enjoy Pikmin 3... I'll sort out the shop stuff later!
